Ever wondered how the geeky guys find the girl of their dreams and convince her to give them the time of day? We are talking about the nerd's nerd, the boy with the thick glasses, button-down shirt and ever present neckwear. It's with their big, powerful...brains!
Or at least that is what the creators of Don't Leave Me Alone Daisy would like us to believe. Meet Techno, a brilliant but highly disturbing (and definitely disturbed) geek of the highest order. While spying for intruders via his secret underground lab's periscope, Techno encounters the pretty (and thankfully ordinary) schoolgirl Hitomi Matsuzawa. Techno immediately renames her Daisy-chan and declares that she is not only as the love of his life but an extraterrestrial.
What follows is one of the wackiest, funniest, unusual comedies ever to come out of Japan. What makes a perfect "I love you" gift? How about a nuclear missile? Planning that perfect romantic getaway? Have you consider a Russian prison? And that is just the beginning.
Strong animation, inspired storytelling, and over-the-top performances all contribute to the success of this throughly enjoyable video.
Volume 1: "DVD Collection" Plot Summary:
Ep.1 Could be Romance, Might be Science
Techno stalks, kidnaps and attempts to obtain a title of ownership to Daisy. Along the way, we meet XYamakawa, a social outcast who desperately wants to belong and who Techno falsely identifies as a threat to Daisy. Miss Rarako, the bubblehead high school teacher, and senior student Nomi Ano finally intercede to prevent Techno from causing any permenant harm to Daisy.
Ep. 2 Our First Field Trip! My Feelings for Her? Atomic!!
Techno and the gang are heaed out for a class field trip. Events unroll quickly and involves robots, laser beams, growth guns and a new best friend for Techno in the form of an anthropomorphic nuclear missle called Mimi-chan. There are some hints that Nomi and Techno's grandfather are on a quest to socialize Techno, but nothing as yet defined. Look for plenty of funny moments in both sly humor poking fun at the anime genre and by X Yamakawa.
