This Ugly Yet Beautiful World (この醜くも美しい世界)

This Ugly Yet Beautiful World (この醜くも美しい世界 Kono Minikuku mo Utsukushii Sekai) is an anime television series created by Shouji Saeki and Hiroyuki Yamaga. It was co-produced by the Gainax and Shaft animation studios.
The series aired on the Tokyo Broadcasting System from April 1, 2004 to June 16, 2004, totaling 12 episodes. A manga adaptation, illustrated by Ashita Morimi, was serialized in Hakusensha's Young Animal.
Takeru and Ryo are high school students who work doing deliveries for the former's uncle. One night, the two go to investigate a mysterious light in the woods only to find a young girl. Takeru and Ryo are attacked by an alien, which is defeated when Takeru transforms into a powerful and strange looking beast himself. The girl, who the boys name "Hikari" (light), is taken in by Takeru when she confesses to having no memory of who she is.
They are later joined by: Jennifer Portman, an American scientist with an interest in the boys and Hikari; Aionios, a shape-shifting robot loyal to Hikari; Kuon, a little floating alien; and Akari, Hikari's "sister". The series follows the daily lives of its characters as they learn about the human condition and face the incoming monsters.
