Taking place in [[TheSixties 1969]] Japan, Brigadoon tells the story of Marin Asagi: an ambitious, innocent, [[HeartwarmingOrphan orphaned]] 13-year-old girl. Not the most ordinary school girl, but she has an [[HappilyAdopted adoptive]] family of colorful characters who care deeply about her and a [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship school friend]] named [[MeaningfulName Moe]] Kisaragi. Everything changes one day when an unknown alien world appears in the sky sending out killer robots (called Monomakia) that target her. Luckily, she finds an alien creature named Melan who seems to be [[MysteriousProtector protecting]] her from the assassins. The series focuses on uncovering the mysteries of the alien world, as well as detailing the [[FireForgedFriends growing relationship]] between Marin and her protector.

* GenreSavvy: When Marin meets Aloma, her first reaction is to ask him if he's a history observer from the future [[spoiler: and she turns out to be more or less right.]]
** And as early as Episode 2, after she realizes that the monsters are targeting her, she leaves her house to keep her friends and family from being harmed when they attack.

** [[spoiler: Marin's similarity to the real Creis]] seems like this, even to the characters, until it's revealed last-minute that [[spoiler: she's actually the Creis's prototype.]]

* SpoiledSweet: Moe is a fine example of this, although she's also a LonelyRichKid.

* JapaneseHonorifics: Just about every human character uses honorifics on a regular basis. Characters from Brigadoon never seem to use them, though.
** Marin refers to Moe and everyone in her adoptive family with the "-chan" suffix. She's even friendly enough to call Aloma "Aloma-kun" although she barely knows him, but she's polite enough to call Midori "senpai". [[spoiler: And after befriending Erin, she politely calls her by the "-san" suffix.]]
** Interestingly, Moto calls Shuta "Shu-chan," and he calls her "Moto-chan". For two elderly unmarried people to be so informal with each other, they must be very close friends.
** Several human characters refer to Melan as "Melan-san".

** Marin sort of becomes one later in the series. [[BattleCouple She helps Melan in his battles]] and even saves his life a few times, though she [[ActualPacifist rarely ever causes real harm to the opposition.]] [[spoiler: This is all thanks to a handy power up from the legendary Monomakaia Cosmos]].

Added DiffLines:

* MaleGaze: The camera has a weird tendency to focus on Marin's rear whenever she is bowing or on fours. [[{{Squick}} Did we already mention she's thirteen years old?]]

* BlindWithoutEm: Marin subverts this trope. She needs glasses because she is far-sighted, but it's not so bad that she can't see anything when they are broken or lost. [[spoiler: Exaggerated when she actually DOES go blind and can only see with the aid of a particular Monomakia serving as her glasses.]]

** Subverted as he didn't belong [[spoiler: in either time periods]], and going home was in easy reach by entering [[Film/BackToTheFuture the portal back to Brigadoon]].
