This short has a very good story concept, albeit a sad one. However it is not very thought out or explained. I watched this with a feeling that I was missing something through the entire thing. Perhaps there is some sort of prequel that I haven't heard of? Anyhow, onto the review.
The last safe island on earth. A government which subliminally trains the children of the island to know about the war going on outside, and how to pilot the Fafner mecha which are used in the war. Silicone monsters that attack, and can mostly only be beaten using a Fafner. Fafners can only be piloted by the children, however if they pilot it to much they turn into crystals and shatter. All of this comes together to form a rather good story, however they don't have any back story, the characters aren't explained very much, and all in all it leaves you asking a whole lot of questions.
I just didn't like the lines on the cheeks. It makes them all look dirty, or wounded all the time.
Really, I never know how to analyze this. I think it's fine.
They don't give you much as far as this goes, but it's refreshing the the character with a weak constitution isn't pathetic for once.
My overall rating is really just that it felt short and incomplete, but it was a relitively well done show. Not great, but not bad either. read more
Both of them show a desperate struggle against a foreign enemy using mecha that can either be a blessing or a curse. The Strains are only good if you have a mimic for them while the Fafner's slowly eat away at the pilot. Both have a major dramatic climax that leads to the resolution.
Bokurano and Fafner-Right of Left are mecha titles in which the robots serve to develop the characters. In both series children are forced to wage an excruciating battle with an aura of bittersweet tragedy that weights upon everyone. Bokurano does an exceptional job in fleshing out a rather vast cast while Right of Left focuses more exclusively on two characters; in both the human element is much more important than the action and these somewhat underrated titles deserve considerably more attention than they receive.
