Bokurano 04.11.2007

I really like Bokurano’s premise.

Basically, 14 kids are gathered to pilot a robot to defend the Earth. They pilot the robot in order. However, each pilot can only use the robot for 48 hours, after which they die.

The episodes focus on individual characters.

In many ways, it reminds me of a cross between Zegapain and Battle Royale with a dash of GANTZ.

It remains to be seen how well the anime can deliver on this premise. It’s a pretty strong and compelling conceit though, and lots of good things should arise.
