This is for all the outsiders out there: Nietzsche’s “bungled and botched,” those who have been stepped on, ignored, misunderstood. Immigrants and underdogs: this is your story. A pair of aliens—brothers—are sent to Tokyo on an undercover mission to evaluate Planet Earth as a potential site for colonisation. Over ten 25-minute episodes we follow their quest to adapt to modern-day Tokyo and human society.
