|| Don't Leave Me Alone Daisy is a fun-filled
comedy pseudo-romance, recommended. When Techno spots Hitomi,
it's love at first sight. Techno decides she should be called
"Daisy," and he uses all his genius as a teenage mad-scientist
inventor to try to take possession of "Daisy," to arrange
opportunities to be with Daisy, to impress Daisy, and to get
rid of supposed rivals for Daisy.
Robots, heat rays, surveillance machines, antigravity
devices, invisibility shields, enlarging rays, sentient
nuclear missiles- this is just the beginning of Techno's
arsenal, and they all backfire with comic effect.
In one sequence, Techno sends away a "rival" by locking an
electronic shock device onto the boy's wrist. The device
activates if it gets too far from the remote control unit.
Techno then puts the control unit on a cat's collar and sets
the cat to chasing an antigravitional catnip container.
Hitomi/Daisy is appalled and flabbergasted by all this. But
she might actually be interested in the good-looking and
sincere Techno if he started acting like a human being.

||While at times the
outrageous and dangerous antics of Techno disgust me and the
wussy nature of "Daisy" makes me want to hurl something at the
screen... there's something oddly compelling about this
Morbid fascination perhaps?
Then again maybe not.
Alot of the plot is... er... unrealistic to say the
least(his best friend is a missile?!?!) but at the same time I
suppose its the absurdity of the plot that makes alot of
things that would normally be quite offensive seem okay. Even
the character of Techno seems okay when you realize he's just
a super-genius teenager who's been shut away from society his
whole life and has alot to learn.
And he does learn.... kinda-maybe-sorta....
This show isn't for everybody and it does leave alot to be
desired. However, if you just want something to keep you busy
on a rainy afternoon and you aren't *too* easily offended, you
may wanna pick this up.
If anything you'll feel alot better about the state of
today's youth when you realize that Techno doesn't actually
exist in real life..... and thank goodness for that.
