This should be one of the final First Impressions posts for the Winter 2010 anime season.
Level E was my most anticipated show for this season due to the fact that sci-fi series are rare to begin with, but I didn’t get around to watching it until now. I went on a viewing spree and caught up to the current episode of 6, out of an unknown total number of episodes. The series was much more humorous and entertaining to watch than I thought it would be.
The premise is that of a present day Earth where countless types of aliens walk amongst us, and humans are the only ones who don’t realize it. Think Men in Black. Level E follows one of the universe’s greatest geniuses who arrives on Earth to have fun. His greatest fear is being bored, so he plays pranks on various people (mostly his personal bodyguards).
The humor is found in the absurd situations that result due to his actions. I got fooled more than once when I became really immersed in a story arc only to find out later there was a real explanation for everything. Hopefully Level E will air for quite a while since it’s getting some well-earned laughs out of me.
