We have men in suits but no men in black suits...yet.
Like every alien show ever made there is always men in black
Also "one" of our Men in Black is an alien I have the feeling the FBI is going to step in and say "We are the Men in Black, surrender now." oh how ironic it would be. But I find it strangely true about the last thing.

LOL yes that is exactly what I meant. Well mainly the setting of aliens living among us (if the opening is any indication) and how the aliens really look....

Actually thinking about it, it could also be Doctor Who without the Doctor.

Does this mean the world is nearly going to end in every episode? I got a MIB feeling out of it myself, especially with the anime stating that tons of aliens live on Earth and it's only the humans who haven't figured this out yet.

I was quite hesitant about picking this up, as it looked like something potentially too weird for my tastes, but i am very glad i did - the episode was nothing short of a pleasant surprise. Retro feel or not, the character interactions were amusing (the alien guy was surprisingly cheeky ... and it worked) , the jokes actually funny and entertaining, and there even seems to be a plot they apparently won't beat around the bush with. In an otherwise rather pale season, this came as a very welcome breath of fresh air. If they can keep this level of entertainment going, i will be a very happy camper. I can already foresee the show going under the radar though ... a shame, but what can you do. Looks like this season's sleeper hit indeed.

It's funny and has potential to have a good plot

The author of the original manga is the same person who wrote Hunter X Hunter and Yuyu Hakusho, so I doubt hes being ignored..

Good series tho.

Heh, that was my favorite part, too.

The show did a pretty good job of balancing the humor and serious moments in the first episode. I haven't read the manga or anything, but it does feel like there could be a pretty intriguing story here lurking beneath the laughs.

I was talking about all adaptations in general.

I used to think this is MIB's ripoff.
but I surprised that actually LEVEL E was previous than MIB.

sorry, Togashi.

Summary: In the present day, hundreds of extraterrestrial species walk the Earth. Some are pacifistic, others violent. Some are here for research purposes, others are career criminals. However, humans don't know they are here.

Now, one more alien has arrived on Earth. One of the universe's foremost geniuses with a personality that's bound to attract all sorts of trouble.

I think the mix of comedy and seriousness is the show's charm point. Just when you think it's getting serious it gets funny, and just when you think it's getting silly it gets serious again.

I didn't even realize there were references in the names. Side note, is there any reason why "baka" isn't translated in the subs? I know that almost every anime fan knows it means idiot but, since it has a direct translation, I was wondering why it wasn't translated.

Spoiler for episode 2:

Yes, but the answer is a spoiler.

I was wondering about the 'baka', and probably thought it had a lot more meaning. If it's a spoiler, then i'll just sit back and find out the good old fashioned way.
