Seemingly unconnected citizens of Tokyo are targeted for bludgeoning by a boy with a golden baseball bat. As detectives try to link the victims, they discover that following the assaults, the victims' lives have improved in some way.
Naota is a normal student living with his abnormal father and grandfather. One day, a seemingly insane girl named Haruko blazes in from out of nowhere on her Vespa, wielding an electric guitar with a buzzsaw! Haruko moves in with Naota under the pretense of being a housekeeper, but Naota knows there's something obviously strange about her. To make matters worse, large shapes are growing out of his head, hatching into large monsters that Haruko makes her mission to kill. Who is Haruko really, and what is she after? You won't find out until the end of this bizarre story. Written by
Every guitar that appears in the series (with the exception of the mini flying v sling shot) is a real guitar. See more »
During the dinner conversation in episode 3, it was mentioned that Haruko ran over Ninamori with her Vespa. This was not accurate, Haruko fell off her bike, the bike continued on and hit Naota, who was then sent careening into Ninamori. See more »
Finally, I think I can forgive all of them after this.

On American brodcast the sixth episode is shown without end credits, making the final image of the series a single string being plucked on Haruko's bass. See more »
This is the most original anime I have ever seen in my life! It's totally insane, really fast and hysterical. Full of pop-cultural references and giant robots. Great action sequences and a top-notch soundtrack provided by JPop band The Pillows. The one thing I noticed the most is the distinct animation style, which actually changes randomly. The first and last episode feature a mind-blowing and dizzying manga sequence where pages from the manga are animated.
This is totally original, anyone who calls themselves a fan of anime should check this one out.
