About This Boy Can Fight Aliens Blu-ray
This Boy Can Fight Aliens! is the first anime OVA of Soubi Yamamoto's Kono Danshi (This Boy) project.
When aliens suddenly invade the world, Earth seems to be fighting a losing battle until Arikawa, one of the defense command staff, accidentally discovers a young man lying on a hill. Tests soon prove the impossible: this one teenager, Kakashi, has the power to defeat the attackers! Unfortunately, Kakashi has also lost his memory, and with it the knowledge of how to actually use his power.
Moving Kakashi in with himself and his own commander, Shiro, Arikawa accidentally starts a strange triangle of emotions and relationships - a triangle that threatens the fate of the planet as Kakashi begins to question his own motivations!

Its just so very different... I'm not talking FLCL/Abenobashi random different.... But it's different. The style of artist directing is different from other amines I've seen but given the storyline it oddly fits.
If you by chance have ever felt alone, completely lost and may of felt used only for your talents.... Well then you may relate to this anime. Don't fret though, there is definitely a beautiful message at the end and if you can relate to the previous declaration then quite possibly this may be an uplifting anime.
Just be prepared it's definitely not your typical art style.
Unique and Emotional

I'm not going to go into much detail since it would be spoilers.
The story is simple and has its flaws, since it never goes into detail about the aliens and why Kakashi has amnesia. However, this is made up by the story being sweet and emotional.
The animation is quite unique. The animation is choppy and with lots of still frames. It's pretty impressive since it was created on a low budget and this was created almost entierly by one person. This is made up by the unique style and colorfulness(is this a word?). It's pretty decent seeing as hows it's the first OVA of Soubi Yamamoto's Kono Danshi (This Boy) project.
The soundtrack fits very well with what is happening.
Kakashi is fairly well developed. However, Arikawa and Shiro aren't so much. But they all have very good chemisty.
I honestly liked the unique art style it had. The story wasn't all that great (lacked details) but it was still very touching.
