Previously there has been no other way to pick yourself up a Standard Edition copy of Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl (Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko) than to import it from a country like Australia. With their Premium Edition out for more than a year now, Nippon Ichi Software America have finally confirmed that a SE of this series will be hitting store shelves next month. To be exact, December 9th 2014.
This edition forgoes the artbook and artbox, instead consisting of the entire series over 2 DVD’s and Blu-ray’s, a standard Blu-ray case and a story guide leaflet.
Makoto Niwa just moved to the city to live with his aunt Meme after his parents were reassigned to work overseas. He is perfectly fine with that, saying it will give him the chance to live the dream life of an adolescent boy. He keeps track of the things he does by assigning “points” to them—positive or negative—and adds them up on a regular basis to grade his adolescent life. And then he discovers Meme has a secret daughter (and self-proclaimed alien) named Erio. He finds her rolling around by the front door of Meme’s house wrapped up in a futon. It is then that he realizes that his dream adolescent life will not come true, and he begins a life of experiences that are out of this world.
