Masterpiece   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
by Suxinn

Now, I'm not usually one to throw around the word, "Masterpiece," lightly. In fact, this is only the second time I've ever rated a series a perfect ten. But, Bokurano is, no doubts about it, a manga that I can find no faults with. It's also the manga I would pick every time if I was asked, "What manga would you recommend to everyone?"

When I first read this, years ago, it blew me away, and it was deeply influential to my own sense of morality. Now, rereading it years later, with the Viz editions in hand, it still delivers, maybe even better than I remember.

Bokurano is, at its heart, a story about humanity. It's about the actions of humanity when faced with pain and destruction, death and despair. Ultimately, it's about finding hope, even at the most difficult of times.

Bokurano is composed of a fairly big cast, around 20 significant people, give or take, not including the families of the pilots. While not all of these people are sympathetic, they are all so very human, so much so that it's difficult to fully hate any of them, even when they do terrible things. And one of the things Bokurano is best at is giving its deaths weight, even when there's so much of it. It complicates what it means to live, and what it means to die.

It's a story without any real answers, and some may call it bleak for that, but the ending nevertheless fills me with hope. It's about making a better tomorrow, no matter how difficult that may be.

Did'nt particulary liked it. at first it looked good, but i'm not really into mecha. but even without that, i did'nt feel any attacment to any of the charactere. they were boring, maybe some did have great backround, but not enought to satisfy me. did'nt even cry or feel sad. it was really without emotion that i read it completly. why? curiosity. i really just wanted to know the story behind everything and what will happen to all of them.

yeaaaa i was not really expecting this mang a to have a happy ending nor did i want it to have a happy endiing. but anyway i dont really have nothing to say other than this was a nice manga, worth reading, and would kinda confuse you in the ending. yayyyyyyyy

story wise- this manga is awsome
art wise - kinda different than the others but you get use to it so nice art for me
character - i didnt like that every single femal character look almost like guys especial when they all are flat chest "every single one of them" but o well

i give this manga a 9.5 because i kinda got confuse with the ending but in a way kinda understand what the author was trying to say

Pretty good

Wellm subject says everything.. its great. If you like psychological drama, go for it - altrough its pretty depressing at times. Plus, I think they should make kids younger, because their minds are pretty mature and they must deal with mature matters in story.. so why not make them two or three years older?smile

this is bullshit man, i dont get how can anybody read this, look what kind of fun can provide me this shit if u know u are gonna watch how every single character dies one by one so fast that sometimes you dont even remmember their names, characters with future and a lot of things to live and lot on their minds because they die after they pilot so everyone is fated to die , man that is not fair, there are things dark but this man does not make sence , look if you want to read something good then read historie or akira or who knows, but this is far faaaaaar from being fun , i fucking waste a lot ot time , i cant understand why this shit was serialised and how i read it till the end, this is really true, its a pain, and it does not worth reading it, i only give a 9 because there a LOT of bullshit out there and after all the plot was something above good, anyway, if u want to read this, my opinion is that its not worth readin , is a pain, like reading some shoujo or something like a guy who has a crush on the most popular girl in school and always the same shit
