When aliens suddenly invade the world, Earth seems to be fighting a losing battle until Arikawa, one of the defense command staff discovers a young man lying on a hill.  Tests soon prove the impossible: this one teenager, Kakashi has the power to defeat the attackers.  Kakashi has lost his memory and he has no way of properly using his powers.  Everyday the Aliens send down a new challenger who he must defeat and if he doesn’t the world could end.

This Boy Can Fight Aliens was animated by one woman, by the name of Soubi Yamamoto when she was 21 on her home computer.  It was later produced by CoMix Wave Films who also had the job of getting the voice actors and writing the music for the OVA.  The OVA runs 30 minutes and has been licensed and distributed dubbed in the United States by Sentai Filmswork.
