I dunno. There's another (as-yet untranslated) strip further down the thread which continues the story.

Alien Nine is Gantz by way of Card Captors. Originally I was trying to compare it to Madoka Magica but other than some similar themes it's really not the same thing.

In the distant future of 2014-6 aliens are so common place that every school has a club whose duties are to remove them without causing disturbance. At Elementary School 9, club activities quickly get out of hand, and leave the three members questioning the aliens and their sense of self.

It's a mix of suspense thriller and goreless bodyhorror, but neither gets particularly deep. What starts out as a creepy feeling of the unknown gets kind of botched when mid-way through they start expositing as if the author thought intentions had been crystal-clear up to that point. There's no great reveal or morally poignant ending, just a general sense of malaise and pity for the main characters with enough interesting beats to keep you reading.

it was out of my head

it was out of my heeeeeeead you motherfuckeerrrrrrr

(it will come as no surprise to anyone who knows my tastes that i fucking love alien 9, though i admittedly don't remember a lot about what happens in the back half of the manga what with the stuff that got animated having latched itself more strongly into my brain but also the shit that happens with kumi is still straight fucked yo)
