This Boy Can Fight Aliens - Now Playing
Posted by: Rai | August 24, 2012
Welcome to Earth
This week Anime Network Online is pleased to bring you a short film by one of the up and coming figures in the anime world, Soubi Yamamoto. As the creator (as in, the work was all done by her) of This Boy Can Fight Aliens, we're sure she'll be a fixture in our industry for a long time to come. Today, we're hosting the online premiere of This Boy..., and we're happy to share it with our faithful fans. If you're not sure about what's going on, here's a little more info on today's new show:
When aliens invade, all seems lost. Then, the impossible is discovered: one teenager has the power to defeat the attackers! Unfortunately, young Kakashi's memories seem to be lost, including how to use his power! Trying to be helpful, Commander Shiro and Staffer Arikawa take Kakashi in and accidentally start a strange triangle of emotions and relationships that threatens the fate of the planet!
The Planzet Contest is Almost Over!
Time's running out to enter the Planzet Watch & Answer Contest, with the top prize being a full-size poster of the film autographed by the Director himself! The contest will be running the rest of this month, so don't miss out on it. Right now it's available here on the site, on your PS3 and XBOX360 game consoles, onDemand, and on iTunes!
