Hey everyone! We've got an awesome catalog addition coming your way today at 4PM PST for Premium Members, with 12 episodes/week for Free users ~ it's Bokurano!



When a strange man in a grotto by the sea offers fifteen middle-school students the chance to test the game he's been developing, the kids find little reason not to accept. Who wouldn't want to pilot a giant robot and face down intruders bent on destroying Earth? Instead of a game, however, the youths discover that the metal giant is all too real--and so are the enemies! It only gets worse when they realize that the 'contract' they signed to play the game was no laughing matter. The robot feeds on the life force of its pilot. Even if they win, they die. But if they lose, the world will cease to exist!

Despair grips the children as they learn the rules of the contract and the nature of the game they signed up to play. And as they reveal the true nature of the enemy--an enemy that seems to be all too familiar--the stakes only get higher. Faced with an impossible situation, each pilot must find their own reasons to fight, a dim prospect when many of them have pasts as dark as the choice that lies before them. Do they fight to protect a world that has hurt them, when their only reward is to die? Fifteen pilots for fifteen enemies, with one mistake meaning the end of it all.


Territories: US and Canada

That's all for now!

Wow! I've read the manga but I've never gotten a real chance of watching the anime. Definitely going to check it out now!

Odd that the announcement (at least as of when I post this) doesn't appear to have a link to the series page:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/bokurano

Another title thanks to Discotek!

That feel when you have to decide between the new FUnimationUK or CR :/

So what do you expect if only 4,97% of the world population is served with catalogue additions whole the time? At least let the international community nag about this problem.

Ultimately, I'm gonna use both.

Having said that, with CR's UK showing being a bit lacklustre recently and Funi having a larger backlog of stuff i want to watch, I'll probably start off Funi-only for a while just to play catchup.

And now one of the most depressing Mecha shows in history...yay! Seriously though I'm happy to see this announcement. It's a good series or what I had seen of it was so here's hoping.

I wish I have the choice. It took quite long for Funimation to come to the UK. Anyway, I already gave them my mail address in case they plan to become available in my region too. Hopefully soon, but I doubt it.

Uninstall, uninstall....

I watched a little of this years ago. One episode got extremely uncomfortable but I liked the others enough to watch the rest.

So Dennou Coil suddenly gets taken down from the shelf and now Bokurano. Hopefully more shows
that seemed to fall through the cracks will follow...

An article for a catalogue that's US and Canada only shouldn't sway you one way or another. FUNI being cheaper might though

Only because they didn't mention the territories before the cut off.
Why write a headline and leader as if it's for everyone when
you already know it's limited to 2 territories?
