Anime Description: Linebarrels of Iron

Linebarrels of Iron is a Sci-Fi Mecha saga that takes place in an alternate future, where a young student named Kouichi Hayase is left in a coma after an accident involving a crash landing of a Satellite in the year 2016. After waking up half a year later, he awakens to find himself possessing powers and superhuman strength. He also discovers a mysterious robot known as "Linebarrel." (These machines are called "Machinas.") This robot was the source of the crash landing and has transformed Kouichi into a "Factor," which gives him the ability to pilot the Machina robot.

Kouichi also meets an amnesiac girl named Emi Kizaki and discovers that her past might be related to Linebarrel. Together they join the organization of JUDA, a medical equipment maker that is secretly developing Machina robots. They wind up in a war against a mysterious threat that is invading from an alternate dimension.
