Anime Description: Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01

Roughly, boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl who is going to go to England soon as an exchange student, boy finds experimental battlesuit, activates it, and gets trapped in it...then the fun begins. As Koji is trapped in the suit, Ellie Kusumoto tries hard to find Koji, since her team developed the battlesuit and doesn't want Kilgore to find it and destrooy it. Will Ellie get Koji free or will Kilgore blast him to bits? Will Koji figure out how to eat ramen in a battlesuit (yes..this is a funny moment in the movie) let alone get to his date with Shiori?

Aside from that, the overall look and feel for the movie is awe inspiring. Tamura Hideki does a good job bringing unique mecha to the screen. There is humor scattered about including a "cruise down the strip" but still lots of good action.
