Keeping E.S. #9 safe from Alien Invasions
: left to right, Kasumi, Kumi and Yuri.
is a science fiction manga and OVA about a trio of 6th grade girls (Yuri Otani, Kasumi Tomine, and Kumi Kawamura) who are selected by their elementary school to become alien hunters. Donning special uniforms, with rollerblades and helmet-like creatures called Borgs that they wear on their heads, the girls are tasked with hunting down and capturing the marauding aliens that periodically threaten their school. What starts off as a straightforward cute action story turns disturbing rather quickly when one of them gets eaten
