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! From up and coming director Soubi Yamamoto, and CoMix Wave, who spearheaded Japan's new wave of independent anime production with the works of Makoto Shinkai, comes a film that turns The War of The Worlds inside out: THIS BOY CAN FIGHT ALIENS!

The story revolves around Kakashi, a boy with no memory of his past. The only thing he has from his past is his cell phone, but it is broken. In the time/planet (never states what planet or where they are)they live in, aliens come everyday to fight someone, a single, random person. Of course, the aliens are super strong, and no one is a match. But then they fight Kakashi, who, for some reason, can take on the aliens. So, from that day on, a single alien comes each day to fight him.
Kakashi lives in a house with two other men. One, about Kakashi's age, is called Arikawa. He is best friends with Kakashi. The other is Shiro, who is something of a father for both of them. They both know of the alien fighting, and give him moral support.
Overall, it is a great movie. The characters are all unique and interesting. The story is well paced, and it all leads up to a memorable ending. The movie is a bit short (a little under 30 minutes), but it is able to give as much of a story as a full length picture does.
As a fair warning, the creator of this movie, Soubi Yamamoto, does a lot of work for yaoi themed (but not full-on yaoi romance scenes, as the subject is normally thought of) stuff, and it does show in this movie. It teases at a romance, the characters are very feminine, and even the art style is similar to yaoi art.
I will not tell people to buy this because of the yaoi, and I definitely will not advise against it (I am not a yaoi fan!). Buy this movie. Great story, great characters, and a great ending.
Overall, great movie.
