Along with this was the 2006 TV anime adaptation of Navel's visual novel eroge Soul Link.
Project A-ko 2 on DVD
Three weeks have gone by since the alien spaceship crash landed on the Graviton City spire, and since then the aliens have been hard at work converting their ship to a pleasure district, hoping to make friends with the humans! ...Not. Perpetually late and continually over-eating A-ko, spacy and cheerful C-ko, and brilliant and bold B-ko are about to enter summer break from school, and it just so happens the aliens' ship is open for business. When a free meal turns into a sob story about how the aliens just want to go home, will it be A-ko or B-ko who can get the ship into orbit again? More importantly, which one of the two will win C-ko's affections? Giant mecha, superheroes, and battle bikinis abound in this second installment of the parody-tastic Project A-ko! Japanese language with English subtitles, and the original English dub!
Project A-ko movie 3 coming to DVD September 26th
Spring is in the air, and that means love is sure to follow. Or at least, overpowered redhead A-Ko really hopes it does! While out shopping for the perfect dress, A-Ko gets into an argument with normally carefree C-Ko, who's more interested in having fun than having a boyfriend. When C-Ko runs away, she's nearly hit by handsome hunk and motorcyclist Kei, who in turn is hit by a panicking A-Ko rushing after her friend. Left with only a glass slipper earring to remember "her" by, when A-Ko and Kei meet again at A-Ko's part-time job, the passion of youth is sure to bloom! Or will it? Throw in conniving B-Ko's plans to ruin anything good for A-Ko, a petulent C-Ko, and a whole mess of mecha, and you've got yourself a Cinderella Rhapsody! Japanese language with English subtitles, and the original English dub.

Strange things begin to occur, and the strangest of all is Miss Ayumi agreeing to an arranged marriage. With handsome hunk Kei, of all people! Still carrying a torch for the dashing young man, A-Ko and B-Ko take their fight to the school's gym-turned-wedding chapel, even as a massive fleet of aliens bears down upon the Earth. As the mecha are mobilized and missiles start to fly, C-Ko wonders to herself, where does she belong in all of this? It's the final chapter of Project A-Ko, and it won't go out without a bang! Japanese language with English subtitles, and the original English dub.
