Hmm what are the alien's "Core" exactly? Strange how they are the same no matter how different the alien, some universal part, a power source, a major organ? Or perhaps its something more disturbing like a cockpit.................

Maybe one of the children will peel it open instead of crushing it, and we'll see the contents.

I find it interesting that the "attacking" monsters have yet to attack anything other than the Zearth robot. Who says they're actually invaders? I mean, the Zearth is always there first and the monster always comes next... I think theres definately more than just "save the world" to this.

I keep thinking of Ender's Game when I read Bokurano...

I totally agree. I feel like the 'conflict' is partly because of misunderstanding and partly due to lack of information. There's a definite paralell to Ender's Game in that it could all be...

I keep thinking that all robots are being piloted by ppl...and that this game is just to amuse some big bad evil alien...dunno maybe the "Core" is a cockpit where other ppl sit?

I'm gonna go with the core = cockpit theory and the pilots = other people theory.

I don't think the other aliens are attacking Earth because they have Zearth, though. But I still don't have any other guess. There has to be a reason Earth is the planet being attacked. If it was some game put on for the ammusement of some higher alien, I'd think they'd have them fight on the various planets of people they have forced into the "game".

We still don't have any indication of what the attacking alien would do if it wins. Will it destroy the Earth? Why doesn't it ever try that instead of focusing on Zearth right away?

Minor update: Bokurano volume 1 has been ordered for scanning... Our plan is to make the HQ release well worth downloading again by the time it's ready.

The issue with Chapter 8 is out and the chapter itself should be edited soon.

Yo. IRC-ignorant boob here.

I somehow successfully downloaded chapters 1 through 5 from the links provided previously, but now I'm stuck. The link to 6 doesn't work and I don't understand the conversation concerning those problems. And when I downloaded 7, my computer "can't" open it. Won't say anything else.

There's a world of things about this whole business I don't know, and it's hurtin'. Can anyone help me out? Sorry to be a pest.

Whew, I thought I was the only Bokurano reader left.

Spoiler:


I think it'll be interesting to see a girl have to pilot it.

Yay... I already wondered why there are so many girls among the 15, but no one called yet.

Chapter 9 was good, like always *g*

Yep as Rion says Chapter 9 now available to DL from IRC.

Its so sad!!!

Spoiler:


I still cant help wishing I could shout "Cheer up you fatalistic fool!" to Kitoh-san, yet however much his own ideology conflicts with my own I still cant fault his storytelling.......

Bumping because the regulars don't seem to have noticed chapter 9's release.

Gomen Gomen.

I liked the way chapters 8 and 9 told this sub story. Really focused on the human side. Not as much robot fighting (I can do without too much of that).

I'm kinda reminded of the way Wings of Vendemiaire was written. Seperate stories with some connections. This has the same feel. Multiple stories where the robot is the connecting plotline. More connection here than in Wings, but a more definite seperation between subplots than Narutaru.
