The new fan has just been installed in this computer and so I finally got to see "Bokura no" #3.

Bokura no #3 [Subs, Triad]

I love this series. My initial guess at what happened to Waku looks like it's going to be pretty accurate. The last sequence in this episode was creepy.

The writing seems to have improved too -- at least, there are less reasons for info dumps. The emotion in this episode was intense, with a mix of the desperation and finality felt by the adults combined with the naivete of the children.

Having only read the first manga, I don't know if they added this episode or changed the order of the episodes. The first volume ended with the same revelation as this episode, but the story of the boy who wants to be one of the chosen (his name is failing me right now) had already been told by then.

Who's watching this? Who's watching this who hasn't read the manga? Anyone...?

I'm watching, but I haven't read the manga. So far, it's been pretty good. You'll want to download episode 4, if you haven't already. The ending is good.

I had it, but I hadn't watched it (because it was midnight...). I'd already seen his story in the manga, but he didn't collapse like that and Mushikoe hadn't delivered that revelation yet.

They did indeed switch things a bit around, though it's not as noticeable as of yet - in the manga the next pilot after Kodama is Daichi (Sugita) followed by Maki (Iguchi Yuka), but in the anime it's Kako (FujiYoshi). I'm guessing they want to extend Sugita's contract and/or move the disturbing bits to the beginning so they can focus on the more likeable characters sooner (because neither Kako nor Chizuru, whose storyline ties directly into his, are very likeable... Chizu's actually the better of the both), but I'm not sure yet.

We'll see ^_^

Just looking at the character sketches at the beginning of the manga to figure that all out! Hm... I did like Daichi, since he's rather sensible and, well, NICE. Strong voice actor too.

I have no idea about Kako or Chizu. Can't remember much about them.

So far my favourites are Maki and Moji, but that might change.

Eep, you trust me to rec anime? Oooh. ^^

I love the show too, and I really liked #4. It's picking up nicely now... but where will it go next?

I'm watching it~ I downloaded and watched episode 4 before work today. I've only read the first two volumes of the manga, as I haven't been able to find 3-6 yet. I agree that the anime seems to be getting better already. I really like how fluid the animation looks. It makes me glee inside.

and bwahahaha icon! XD

Yeah, I HAD to watch more of it. The raw of five is out too and is terribly tempting...
