With kindness comes naivete.
Courage becomes foolhardiness.
And dedication has no reward.

i think the secret is that the genres people mock for entries they specifically focus on and talk about constantly for how bad they are, have good entries that people don't look at because they focus on the ones that they think are bad

nah some genres are just predominantly bad

Hey kids! Do you want to be as AKOOL as me?


When I say I was "tricked", I meant those are genres I generally don't have interest in, and the realization that that's what I was watching came after I decided I liked those shows. And I was kind of joking.

that doesn't make them inherently bad, which is what people imply when they say "oh nooooo I liked a harem show, I'm trash"

Uninstall is a fantastic complete package of music, visuals, and lyrics. Really sets the tone for the show.

Everything I know about Bokurano came from hearing Uninstall in Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga and thinking it sounded really nice, and finding the full song lovely. Then I read the show synopsis and while it seems really good, I don't think I can handle watching or reading the whole thing because drat.

Yeah it's pretty heavy. I think the Anime has a slightly happier ending though. Also the manga has some pretty graphic depictions of sexual violence(but still nowhere close to Narutaru).

Yup. The twist - and the setup for the rest of the show - is that he fell off because he died, not the other way around.

from a quick googling, bokurano gives me a shadow star vibe.

oh it's the same mangaka.

Yup. It's pure misery porn all the way. Quite well done misery porn, but at the end of the day whether or not you like it will be entirely dependent on whether you're into shows that are basically just about piling relentless misery onto the protagonists.

Eh, Bokurano the show isn't solid misery. It's more a case of repeatedly asking the question of how and where you can find grace and joy when your death is close and inevitable. Some characters do, some characters don't.

The manga and show are very different to the point the original mangaka and the anime director hate each other.

It's less that they hate each other and more that Kitoh told Hiroyuki Morita (the anime adaptation's series director) "Please don't make it a cheap cop-out", concerning the changes he wanted to go with, as shown in the wikipedia entry on Bokurano.

Its not done yet, but will almost certainly be finished by the time this season starts. Based on current pacing, Id say probably no more than maybe 10ish chapters left?
