Project A-ko (プロジェクトA子 Purojekuto Ēko), commonly known as Project A-ko: The American Film, is a 1990 American animated action comedy sci-fi film directed by Kosuke Masuyama and starring Stacy Jefferson, Cathy Weseluck and Venus Terzo. Based on the anime franchise of the same name, the film was produced by Gloria Katz and written by Leonard Schrader, with George Lucas as executive producer. It focuses on a happy-go-lucky 16-year-old red-haired, sailor-suited teenage schoolgirl, A-ko Magami, who goes on her magical adventure from high school to outer space as she struggles to finish her homework, rescue her friend C-ko, and save the Earth from an evil alien invasion.

The screenplay was originally intended to be a live-action film, but the film adaptation became animated because of a contractual obligation with A.P.P.P. and Studio Fantasia. The film premiered in Suginami, Tokyo on September 26, 1990 and was released theatrically in the United States by Warner Bros. on September 29, 1990. Upon release, the film has received positive reviews from critics and fans, who praised the animation, themes, characters, voice performances and the soundtrack. It was a critical and commercial success, grossing $500 million over a $66 million budget in the box office worldwide. Its success spawned various adaptations of the film into other media, including a computer game by Lucasfilm Games, a direct-to-video spin-off film, books and toys.


Project A-ko is the typical love triangle of three school girls and their confrontations with aliens, giant robots, and women who look like burly men.
