Sorry for my lack of updates. Long story short: real life got in the way.

Anywho, on to the review. I'm doing two to compensate for my lack of updating.

Quick review

Episode 4

Alrighty, this episode focuses on one particular character, our next pilot. I'm starting to see a pattern developing here as far as the pilot choosing business is concerned. We get to glimpse into the life of on particular character: Kodaka, and his observations on life and the meaning of being a "chosen one."

In depth Review

Bokurano episode 4: Strength

In this episode, we learn more about Kodaka Masaru, or Kodama, the boy who wears Kokopelli's glasses.

We learn of his family, his father who runs a real estate company (a man he greatly admires) and his cynical nature.

To him, life seems to be something very fleeting, with people being born just to die. And yet, there are the chosen ones, the people who get to rise above the others, like his father -- like him.

We also learn that sitting in one's chair while thinking about Z Earth transports you inside said robot.

Once again, we go halfway through the episode on character development alone, until the big battle in the later half.

Upon seeing the arrival of the next enemy, we soon learn of Kodama's sadistic nature, and his viewpoint on Waku's death.

They almost get beaten, but Kodama refuses to go down, exclaiming that he is one of the chosen.

While the battle rages, it becomes clear that Kodama cares very little about the human lives he is destroying by his reckless nature...until one particular thing gets destroyed.


Ge goes into a state of desperation, and needs very little prodding to finish off the enemy mech.


And thus, the single huge development of the episode is revealed:


Oh dear.

I'm really liking the series, and have taken to writing up reviews as I watch, since I keep wanting to watch the next episode right away.

I am starting to get a who Battle Royale Feeling from this series though, and I'd love to see where they're going with it.
