    Mecha Pilots Sign Up Here
    Do you really really really really want to be a mecha pilot? If an alien race dropped a mecha nearby and asked you to pilot it, would you? Or would you wait till you heard the catch? Not that it matters much since they tricked you into coming by saying you were signing up to beta test a video game, then immediately dumped you into combat with another mecha. Fight or die? Is that a fair question? ...

    Evangelion with 15 Shinjis
    This anime has many features in common with Evangelion. It isn't super action packed, so don't expect Gundam type combat. The combat is more reserved, and quite similar to the original Evangelion series. The 15 main characters are also very much like Shinji, in that none of them want to be there, they are whiny, and emotionally unstable. Overall the anime is quite enjoyable, especially if you like ...

    A Deconstruction of the Giant Robot Genre
    Bokurano is like a series of small, personal stories swirling in an otherworldly plot that is beyond our capabilities.

    *If you're looking for plot-focused anime, this may not be for you. It is more focused on its characters and how they react to the plot.
    *If you're looking for lovable characters, some are, but many are hard to like. Like a small sample of the world population, you won't like ...

    Opening Theme Alone Gets Three Stars
    Seriously, this is the most beautiful opening theme I've heard in years, and maybe ever.

    The series pretty well jumps right in, so you don't spend a lot of time getting to know the characters - but you'll get to know each of them very well over the course of the series.

    There is giant robot combat, but it's not the sole focus of the story, which is really about the 15 teenage pilots. Some ...

    A heart-wrenching classic not to miss
    Bokurano is one of the anime that inspired me to start watching the medium frequently. Sure, the graphics aren't great (even for 2007 standards), but that's not what Bokurano is about. It's about the gripping tales of these dozen or so children who unintentionally sign themselves up for a battle they didn't know they had to face. The characters are genuine, the direction is superb, and most of ...

    Be VERY sure you want to watch this...
    This is a depressing, violent, anime full of death. I gave it 5 stars because the quality is that good. But I really don't recommend you watch it.

    Don't get me wrong, it's written very well! But so many people die. Even the heroes die. And sometimes they're villains instead of heroes.

    I wish I never found this anime. It's too good for me to simply abandon, but it was almost too ...

    Very different and emotional mecha/human anime
    I began wondering what the story was, since the presentation was about children playing a "game" and piloting a huge black robot against others. The main story became dark and emotional quickly, but the developing internal stories of each "pilot" and family was the motivation to move on. There are parts that were excellently told, and brought tears to my eyes, yet some were too harsh and even ...

  • One of the better anime I've watched in this genre
    It's been a while since I watched this show, so I don't have much to say review wise other than that it was really intense and I remember enjoying it a lot! I tend to avoid mecha, so I haven't watched a TON of it, but this is by far my favourite out of the ones that I have seen!

  • Prepare for a Voyage into Darkness
    This is an amazing anime series. It's a great deconstruction on the giant mecha style of anime. I actually like it better than the original manga. I want to give it five stars... but I can't. In fact, I can easily see why people would want to give it low ratings.

    The show is intensely depressing (although not quite as depressing as the manga). The art is mediocre at best. This is bound to give ...

  • Amazing very underrated mecha\drama anime.
    Bokurano Ours is a amazing anime and manga about a group of Kids who are tricked into a deadly contract.This anime is a deconstruction of the mecha genre so If you enjoy anime like Madoka magica and Evangelion then i cannot recommend Bokurano ours enough.
