Synopsis

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!

Some people say that there's no plot and the story is too simple but I can't disagree more. The show makes you ponder about the deeper question behind it. Why are they attacking? Why should I fight? What happens if I don't? Am I alone?

To me, the story is absolutely stunning (and I ended up crying a little while watching). It is some what light hearted but those who have watched anime like Bokurano will definitely be struck by the similarity between the underlying theme.

The main issue with this is the animation. However, I came to watch it with the full knowledge that read more

This anime's story line is a bit airy. U never find out his direct connection to the aliens and why he of all people was chosen to fight but, the story has a broader focus.


Dealing with the issues of abandonment and the overwhelming feeling of loneliness in a world that isn't always kind. It's touching and leaves u teary eyed.

The art is also quite different then your typical anime and the setting and characters are drawn in an unusual, but fresh way. The art it's self read more

Recommendations

Well they both have such colorful colors in the anime. Both involve fighting with something and also the idea of having support from friends or other sorts. Gives the same feeling and atmosphere. Though, Kono Danshi could be a little complex to understand. I really recommend both.
While Bokurano is a lot darker, both deal with a similar theme.
Both are about children/teenager being forced to fight to save the world, their struggle to find the motivation to do so and their fears. In these series, the characters try desperately to search for something to cling on as a support as they are put into a situation they cannot comprehend.
Kono Danshi, Uchuujin to Tatakaemasu's one episode length may be too short but the story was developed nicely and is definitely worth watching.
