Please Save My Earth (Japan)

Rating: ***

Divided into six installments.

Adapted from the shojo manga of the same name, this is an intriguing feminine sci-fi romantic drama (that's a mouthful) about a group of teenagers who all share the same unsettling dream about their previous lives living on the Moon. The main character is a typical melancholic Japanese school girl and the bane of her existence is a silver haired brat who starts manifesting dangerous telekinetic powers. The mystery continues to unfold throughout the whole series and by the last episode the dramatic tension is really high. Unfortunately, this is where everything falls apart, and the last episode effectively disregards everything that happened previously and introduces a jarring shift in content and paradigm. Overall interesting, but ultimately unsatisfying.
