About NieA_7 Blu-ray/DVD
NieA_7: The Complete Series contains episodes 1-13.
Mayuko Chigasaki is an ordinary girl from the countryside, who now is attending university in big city Tokyo. She struggles each day to make ends meet while studying for her exams, barely scraping up the yen to afford bus fare to and from school. And at the end of the day, she comes home to a gluttonous, freeloading alien living in her closet!
Ever since the aliens landed, things have been just a little weirder in Japan. Despite that, life goes on as normal for these outsiders. At least, as normal as things can be when your alien roommate builds UFOs out of junk and generally acts like none of her actions have consequences. Each day brings something new, so catch life on the outside in this boxed set!

Ratings & Reviews
great blend of genres
by Alex -
As a huge fan of Yoshitoshi ABe, I've been waiting for this series to come out on blu-ray for awhile now. This was meant to be a comedy, and the first half of the series definitely has plenty of slapstick type moments, but you get the feeling that ABe's heart really wasn't in it. Towards the end of the series, ABe's signature atmospheric production reemerges, and a good portion of the slapstick goes by the wayside. At its core, Niea_7 deals with the issues of poverty and classism, though thankfully not in a heavyhanded or preachy way.
It'll make you laugh, it'll stir your imagination, and it'll stick with you long after you've seen it. Give it a chance!
