Re: bokurano discussion thread

Ah, good to see thread about my favourite manga :P

Only flaw about this manga is age of main heroes - They are 13, yet they meets so much mature problems - I have the feeling that they were supposed to be at least 18.. :)

And yeah, anime is pretty much bad.. I mean, that whole "let's change the plot" thing.. that is worst fate that can meet anime. Why are they gave it to director who hates original work? :(

Re: bokurano discussion thread

13? i though they had 15 years? but yeah thats one of the things i didnt like about the manga
sometimes they seem too mature for their age and seem to have too complex philosophies to be beleivable, it seems almost at times as if the author is making a philosophical essay...

and dunno i like the anime its different from the manga; to me is better that theres some differences between the 2 so that we see something new, altho i agree they shouldn't put as director someone who has no respect for the source material.

anyway why does the director hate the work? does anyone know?

Re: bokurano discussion thread

Could anybody tell me what kind of changes is the Bokurano's anime director planning to do?

Do you think the anime will be still enough good with the changes?

Thanks!

Re: bokurano discussion thread

the aninme is pretty good, the changes remind me of those of evangelion between the manga and the anime, some dialoge and situation might be different but the plot and characters have remain the same.

besides that the anime is a little less dark and brutal for example in the manga, chizuru is savagely gang raped by the teacher and his buddies while in the anime he just takes advantage of her, also kako dies in an accident instead of being murdered in cold blood.

i'm also told that the director will give it a happy ending so if you think that the manga is too depressing you might like the anime

No it does not! you should see red garden it is very similar to gantz.

anyway bokurano is a great manga,but it`s just so damn sad(I think the author hates kids) the way the kids find out they will die and how they live there lives knowing that is a little heavy on my heart.

Even if they share similar elements, their fundamentals as stories are completely different. It's impossible to liken Bokurano to Gantz.
