I’ve been called.

So, for those who aren’t aware, Manga-Screener finally released more Bokurano chapters to the ravenous hordes, and it was glorious. If you’re following Bokurano and haven’t read these chapters yet, close this window and go do so now. If you haven’t even touched Bokurano yet, well, rectify this situation immediately.

For those intrepid souls who jumped on the torrent ASAP and also read this blog, yes. Kanji is awesome. Since he, unfortunately, didn’t have much in the way of a backstory to elucidate upon, or much unresolved internal conflict, his arc was mostly plot-driven, with the most frightening enemy yet in the manga. I honestly thought that Kitoh Mohiro would just say “screw you all” and end the manga right here with BAD END. Which he may have yet done.

However, I don’t think anyone expected Kana to suddenly become a pilot. We already knew from the beginning of Kanji’s arc that Ushiro was the non-contracted member, but this must have been the result of all the manipulation Kana’s been doing behind the scenes. My guess is, Kana’s arc will be the resolution of the Ushiro/Kana hostility that’s been going on throughout the whole series. I’ve been waiting to see what the canon reason for that weirdness is for a while now (the anime stops being canon at episode 13; or, well, it just kind of deflects itself off into its own little universe that has nothing to do with manga canon) and, well, it’s all going to come out. Some kind of nasty ugly truth, I’m sure.

Why isn’t this series licensed already? Del Rey, surely you can do something about that, can’t you?

I cannot understand those that take anime seriously, but I can love them, and I do. Out of my love I warn them to keep clear of this blog.
