Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars

Adjusting to a new school is always difficult, but when you discover that your fellow students (and most of the people in your new hometown) are part of a special organization dedicated to protecting the earth from an alien invasion things can get pretty weird, pretty fast. Student Hajime Murata eventually learns to accept his new freinds and their hidden talents, even when it leads him on a personal journey of discovery that could save — or destroy — the world. The story is obviously aimed at a young teenage audience who can relate to the high school hijinks and heartbreaks that make up the bulk of the episodes, but the overall story in interesting enough (and the art work strong enough) to keep all but the most jaded anime fans interested.
