Comedy alternating between romance and action directions. Produced by Kyoto Animation, as that studio's second in-house project.
Focuses completely on the concept of the first five or so episodes of the original series. Chidori and Sousuke have something like a relationship. He does gun-nut stuff and she has outbursts about it.
Sillier than the original, but basically a good choice of concept. A lot of laughs, such as Sousuke misanalyzing poetry over the opening of Apocalypse Now (1979). Too simple and predictable, and still too many clashes to be really good.
