Description: The Daichis - Earth Defence Family

From Shoji Kawamori (Macross, Escaflowne) comes the story of a special family chosen to be the defenders of planet Earth! However, that responsibility falls on the Daichis, a dysfunctional family that's on the verge of falling apart.

In the middle of a fierce argument over a divorce petition, they are chosen by the Galaxy Federation to protect humanity from alien threats. They reluctantly accept their duties and go up against the craziest opposition imaginable. Will the Daichi's be able to save the world, and more importantly themselves?

Note: A 14th episode in production remained unaired in Japan, due to being "overly violent."
