New anime

We've watched the first episode of Zettai Shonen. Ayumu is spending the summer at his father's place (his parents are divorced), in some remote village in the mountains. The locals all are a bit... odd. And the summer is odd as well, or so various characters remark.
Ayumu is riding his new mountain bike through the mountain when he meets Wakkun. Wakkun is a small boy, who suddenly dissapears. And then it seems that the fireflies are, in fact, tiny spaceships...
This had a bit of a Twin Peaks-like feel about it: sleepy town that, upon closer inspection, has a lot of secrets hidden underneath the surface... The designs are pretty nice, and the whole washed-out color palette seems very appropriate as well. One to watch!
