Alright, so I lied. We're not done with our SigIKKI coverage. I just couldn't help myself, really: Bokurano is probably one of their most popular titles when it comes to the SigIKKI label, and I'm starting to root the series on, even though I want to just be the cool indie hipster who reads Tokyo Flow Chart and What's The Answer.
Take a bunch of kids, give them a giant robot, and tell them to save the world. It's something we've always imagined doing, and we even read a bit about in 20th Century Boys. So what Bokurano essentially amounts to is something of a wish fulfillment fantasy for many of us guys (and apparently a lot of you girls) -- yet the series handles it with a surprising level of deftness.
The big thing with Bokurano is that the story doesn't feel like a typical "save the world" story. The whole time I've been reading it, something has been lurking in the back of my head telling me that something is going to go horribly awry with this. Perhaps its how their robotic guide has a plastered-on smile at all times, or the somber tone of some of the characters.
Either way, Bokurano is sure to be one of the front runners for SigIKKI once it makes it to print, and will ensure some success for the line. This will be a title to pass around to your friends for sure. Check it out over at the SigIKKI website and let us know what you think of it.
