** This was a fan-made expansion that gave some more "bizarro" powers to humans, to all [=GMs=] to add elements of series like old Mecha animes, {{Ranma One Half}} and {{Project A-Ko}} to their campaigns. These included powers like Girl/Guy/Girl Trigger (contact with a specific stimulus caused the character to be affected as though hit by a Boy/Girl Gun, a {{Genderbender}} {{Transformation Ray}}), Own a Big Mecha (the character has a piloted robot or super battlesuit made by one of their relatives- which meant they'd get ticked if it got damage) and a human version of the [[OneWingedAngel Monster Out]] power.

The game was based on comedy anime (particularly ''Manga/UruseiYatsura''), but was originally released in the '80s when anime was still mostly an underground sensation. So, it was written as a general comedic sci-fi RPG. After you could watch ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and ''Anime/DragonBall'' without having to buy them from bootleggers, the anime basis became the game's main selling point.

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTinExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin - the game is about teenagers (or at least people who behave like stereotypical teenagers) from outer space.

Added DiffLines:

The game came in three editions: 1987, 1989, and 1997. The only difference is each successive version added another alien powers table, and different sample characters in each edition (with a lot of overlap)
This list shows the last 10 events of 28. Show all.
