Anime Description: This Ugly Yet Beautiful World

Two teenagers named Takeru and Ryo are struggling through an angst and rebellious period in their lives. However, all of this is disrupted one strange night when Takeru meets a strange girl that he dreamed about.

They are attacked by an alien creature, and things proceed to get stranger when Takeru transforms into a monster himself and defeats the alien beast. However, the girl (who they name Hikari) seems to have no past or memories.

They eventually start a new life for her while she learns the ways of the world. However, this is only a prelude leading to even more strange encounters and mysteries, eventually climaxing in a struggle that could jeopardize all life on Earth.
