Anime review : Bokurano

Wanted to make this ages ago but I thought this site was dead and I just remembered now.

Bokurano is a show that nobody seems to have heard off. I think its one of he most underrated animes ever. The entire anime revolves around tragedy and thus its not possible to make a review that doesn't spoil everything. Hell telling you what happens in the fist episode will spoil stuff so I have to be as cryptic as possible.

The story is about a group of 15 children/teens who follow their friend down into a cave where a stranger who asks them to play his "game??" where they have to pilot a giant robot one by one to defeat a "monster?". Is it only a game? Who or what are those enemies they need to defeat? Why can the whole world view their battle? 

If there is one emotion that describes what you feel watching this anime,its despair. Its worse than what puella magi ever made me feel. Being chosen to pilot the robot "zearth" is no gift,its a curse.But they have no choice but to get in as they learn what not doing so would mean when they learn what they are really fighting for. You can watch as our characters slowly get broken mentally and emotionally and how they deal with it.

Considering the show is supposed to be about fighting robots, its art and fight scenes are nothing to look at. But thats not why you watch bokurano. Its the sotry and characters,who make you really feel like you're rooting for them till the end. The show also has one of the most unlikeable villans in all anime I've seen.

The opening of this show deserves special mention as I've never skipped it once. The music is hauntingly beautiful and it brings out the best of the show.

Theres stuff near the end that doesn't really make the most sense but Its no reason to not watch the show.

Can you tell me the tone or the feel of the anime? Like, can you compare it with another one?

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

Thats a tough question. I mentioned madoka magica. I think angel beats and evangelion come close.

I see, that's very good....
