Posted by psgels on 19 September 2007 with categories: Bokura no


I’m not sure why, but my mood seems to be extremely random and unpredictable when it comes to final episodes. Bokura no, though, still had me as pumped as ever with its semi-final episode, and I’m really looking forward to see the end of this. I actually remember making a few predictions about the next episode, and surprisingly enough NONE of them came true. Obviously, this episode is going to be filled with spoilers. DO NOT READ this entry if you haven’t seen this episode yet.

Seriously, Bokura no started off with so many characters, and only three of them are alive right now: Jun, Kana and Seki. The rest of them: all dead, because yes, in this episode, Yoko kills Koemushi and takes Kana’s place as a pilot! I remember predicting that the giant tower would bring some kind of major plot twist: it didn’t. Yoko just destroys it, along with the building of Kanji’s mother. I also never expected that she indeed would be a pilot as well!

The fight also was one of the most exciting ones in the series, as it was also one of the most challenging ones. It really looked like a battle between titans, though in the end, it was Yoko’s experience that managed to finish the fight in her favour. This episode also was the first time we saw the government really involved with their bombardments of the city, around the fighting Zearths. It was actually a pretty weak strategy, as it would place both mechas at an equal disadvantage, not to mention the huge amount of homes that were burned in the process. The next and final pilot is going to be Jun.

The obvious question remains: How the HECK are the creators planning to finish this series?! Who were these people dressed in white? Are they really the ones behind everything? Will Bokura no attempt to rush its ending by killing off these guys in the end, or will it just close off the story of the current world, where the giant robots of other worlds will remain killing each other. Will the reset-button truly be pressed, or is this just a piece of false information. I’m dying to know!!!

    I see the picture, but I still can’t believe it. How in the world could Koemushi BE killed? He can warp people instantly.

    Also, explain how Seki isn’t going to be a pilot? I don’t understand.

  2. psgels psgels says:

    Well, zxzxi, the thing is that he never saw Yoko’s betrayal coming, and he probably was too confused to do anything against his only ally. That’s why he never did anything back.

    Also, if I understood things correctly, this is going to mean that Seki will be the next Koemushi apparently. I’m not sure whether he’ll pilot or not, but the fact that there’s only one episode left makes this unlikely.

    Quite honestly, I’d be dying to know where you *get* the episodes, since I’m having a really hard time finding the raws as torrents. >.> But I love your blog and love reading about Bokurano, and your opinions about it. =D

  4. psgels psgels says:

    I get my raws from the program called Share. It’s basically the same program that the Japanese people use, hence the speed of the releases. ;)

  5. Gottis says:

    I see! Thanks for the tip! =D

  6. Gottis says:

    Where do you get this program? =O

    ^ that link should give you all the information you need.

  8. Gottis says:

    Thank you so much! =D

    Very strange plot twist indeed (not sure if I find it very credible that someone can kill Dungbeetle like that). I’m awaiting the last episode as well. I haven’t watched the show since ep 16 but will probably marathon it over the weekend.

  10. Oroboros says:

    Is it me or did they redesign the Zearth mecha? It looks more forbidding and dangerous, or perhaps that’s just the reflection of the flames.

    I’m deliberately delaying watching episode 24 because it’s the last one. The end of a truly amazing masterpiece. :(

    Who knows, maybe it will be an extensional movie about anthropomorphic blocks who cant get close to one another because they stick together if they do and if they connect too many people they make a line and disappear.

    Should have just done a biography of the creator.
    They’ll likely give it the battleship movie treatment.

    I guess someone just thought that Tetris Trilogy sounded funny?

    So there’s a trilogy of movies being made of tetris. A trilogy. And here I am wondering how they plan to make even one movie out of it.

    @Bam, It's Sharin no Kuni, quite literally one of my favourite visual novels of all time and it ain’t no fantasy harem.

    @Aidan: That’s a sizeable donation, how are you still not in the top tier also have you played a fanverion sub here? Cuz a fantasy harems can go horribly wrong.

    I put down 80 but it more 99 because of the shipping.
    Bit worried they are being a bit too greedy. That 140K goal seems a little high.

    The Last Fiction looks great, and that’s not me being biased for the subject matter. Defiantly the most expensive, polished and mature animation we’ve ever had. It’s based on a great arc from the Epic of Kings, which is the Persian equivalent of the Oddysee, and it’ll be amazing if done right.

Kiznaiver Review – 60/100

Kiznaiver is a very different faire from Studio Triggers other works in that it takes a more serious tone and has a writer who tends to go more for the melodramatic. This is a tale about a group of very different people gathered together and have their pain linked to one another. In an effort […]

This was certainly pure narrative confusion at it’s zenith and in that regard I don’t mean that the events depicted were hard to understand but rather a general confusion on what mood it wants to go out on. In this episode we had comedic, drama and climatic showdown all hastily weaved together to try and […]

And we get to the end of Bungou Stray Dogs, but this last episode doesn’t offer any conclusive ending, instead feel more like a set up episode for the next season. This last episode functions like a typically Bungou Stray Dogs’ episode; there are many good things to say about it, mainly the technical triumphs […]

Mayoiga Review – 78/100

Mayoiga has to be one of the most misunderstood shows in recent years. On a surface, the premise alone has a lot of potential.

Joker Game – 12

Upon finishing yet another rather uneventful episode of Joker Game, I began to wonder just what this series had planned for its finale. “How best to top off a rather mediocre series such as this?” I thought to myself. However when looking over general consensus over the episode I found out that I seen the […]

I really should be getting Grand Kingdom or waiting for Mirage Sessions.

Oh my.

It came out really late into the PS2’s lifetime in 2007, so at the time, I […]
