Tubi TV Adds Alien Nine Anime Streaming

posted on by Karen Ressler
2001 sci-fi anime available with English subtitles

Video streaming website Tubi TV began streaming all four episodes of the Alien Nine anime special on Wednesday. The series is available in Japanese with English subtitles.

The anime is based on a three-volume manga of the same name by Hitoshi Tomizawa. It originally debuted in Japan in 2001. Central Park Media released the anime in North America with an English dub, and also released the manga.

The story takes place in a world where aliens commonly land on school grounds, and the task of ensuring the school's safety is given to the "Alien Party," a group of schoolgirls who are elected by their peers for the duty. Yuri Otani is one such student who, upon arriving in sixth grade, is elected to the team and forced to join with a synthetic life-form called a "Borg." Yuri and her team members Kasumi Tonime and KUMI Kawamura use their ingenuity, the Borgs, and sporting equipment to try to stay alive and keep their school safe.
