Hideaki Anno's New Work is"Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou" which is broadcast by TV-Tokyo since October 1998.

On 10/02/1998, TV-Tokyo started Hideaki Anno's New Anime "Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou" at last. A lot of anime fans in Japan have been looking forward to seeing it for a long time. These two years Hideaki Anno made real performance films rather than anime.
This work is his new age anime which is different from his former works.

. 36. Act 11.0 "Ichigakki No Owari Ni (At the end of the first term)"

The Act 11.0 was broadcast on 12/11/98 in Tokyo and Osaka. The program consisted of two short stories (Act 11.0 and Act 11.5).
At the end of the first term, Arima met both Tsubasa and Miyazawa in their school. Arima felt awkward with Tsubasa. Tsubasa put her face into Yukino's bust strongly. Then both Tsubasa and Yukino changed themselves into a classical cartoon for little girls "Bishoujo Mode."

Director Anno showed a real performance film.
On tiles, pictorial letters were shown. The letters were made of clay.
At the first term, many various things happened.

Yukino met Arima. Souichirou Arima talked about a Kenso fencing meeting in August. It was an All-Japan inter-high school match in Kyoto.
Arima's skill was excellent. He was selected as a regular member of the school team. In July, he had to join training at a training camp. He said, "We cannot meet for a while."
He said, "I will have a holiday since August 7th."
Suddenly Arima said, "I want to embrace Yukino." Yukino agreed. Arima began to embrace her. The anime became monochromatic. The next moment, in the high sky, the two embraced each other.
In the speech day of the first term, Asaba appeared in front of Yukino and Arima. Asaba gave Arima a kind of talisman (Senbaduru: a string of one thousand paper cranes).
Asaba said, "I will watch Yukino lest a vermin should approach her."
Arima said, "You are the vermin!"
Yukino said, "I will go to swimming pool with Asaba."
Asaba said, "I will show her my fine body out of my shirt."

Then Asaba's muscular body was shown. He began to dance erotically.
Arima decided to grow up and to build himself into a man in order for Yukino to love him much more while he could not meet her.

. 37. Act 11.5 "NATSUnoYASUMInoHAJIMARI NI (At the beginning of Summer holiday)"

At the beginning of Summer Holiday, Tsubaki, Maho, Rika Sena, Aya Sawada, Yukino and Tsubasa went to the city to play together. Then Aya Sawada smoked. Yukino changed herself into a monster again. Yukino forbade Aya smoking.
The six went to a karaoke room (Japanese: Karaoke Box). They sang a main theme of "Anime: Youkai Ningen Bemu." Yukino watched the four (Rika, Aya, Tsubasa and Tsubaki). They studied at the same junior high school (Hatadai chugaku).
Tsubaki regarded Tsubasa as her pet.
On the other hand, Maho graduated from Horikawa-Nishi junior high school. Yukino graduated from minami-Shirakawa junior high school.
Tsubaki wants to get friends with young pretty girls. Yukino thought about such a man for a while. At last she found Tsubaki resembled Asaba.
By the way, Yukino understood both Tsubaki and Aya were vermins.
Aya confessed that she had bullied Rika for many years. Rika said, "I am proud of you because you are my friend and a professional writer."
Aya has won a prize at a new face award of novel for juveniles. He began to work as a professional writer.
That evening, they began to came back each home. Then Tsubasa embraced Yukino. What?
When Tsubaki, Rika and Aya saw it, they went home.
Yukino and Maho had to go with Tsubasa. In front of a rental locker, No. 0092, Tsubasa picked up a large baggage out of the locker. Tsubasa began to talk about her own situation. Recently her father wanted to be married with a woman. He was a so-called greenhorn. Therefore Ms Ikeda won him over to her side. Moreover she had a son of Tsubasa's same age.
Tsubasa could not go back home because Ms Ikeda stayed at my home.
Ms Tsubasa Shibahime said, "Please let me stay at your house."
In the ending, Director Anno used a real performance film of railway landscape between Kawasaki Station and Shitte Station of JR Nanbu Line.
