Bokurano: Ours

When a group of children discover a strange cave at the beach, their lives are forever changed. Inside they meet a man called Kokopelli who seems to have a lot of advanced gadgetry. He invites them to participate in a ‘game' in which they play heroes saving Earth from fifteen giant monsters. To defeat the invaders, he will give them a powerful mecha of black armor. The children eagerly sign the contract, name their new weapon Zearth, and must now take turns to pilot it; but the ‘game' is in fact all too real and the consequences of battle become the stuff of nightmares. With no option to cancel the contract, is there any way to stop the game before it is too late for all of them?

I really don't know how to feel about this manga. On one hand the disgusting amount of sexual acts involving middle schoolers for no reason and the lack of trying to ease you into the situation feels kind of off, but on the other hand it feels like a coming of age story, but instead of coming of age, but you have the lifespan of a mayfly. It's very unique I think, and i think premise wise it could've been Madoka Magica lite (quality and story structure wise), but instead it went the way of Narutaru. story: basically some stranger in a cave offers 15 children a chance to fight some aliens in a mecha, but forgets to tell them the terrible price that comes with it. there's ALOT of over exposition, no development until right before the characters suffer their horrible fate+ excessive forced plot points. Also this artist and mentally fucked up characters have a terrible relationship. Half the main characters are absolutely fucking cooked, and of course one of them is a middle schooler who has sex with a group of teachers for reasons only to make her seem like more of a homocidal maniac. It was unnecessary and genuinely made my blood curdle which is rare.  But the story does get better it holds interest as you go along because even tho they could literally die in the next chapter you get an attachment to these unfortunate kids. The story is just so fucked you just feel absolutely terrible for the kids, and then you realize there's no loopholes and such. It makes it more heartrending to read, even if it gets sappy and prolonged as FUCK sometimes. Art: I hate his artstyle and I always will. The actual drawings and things that aren't people definitely suffice. But the actual people look bad. It just looks garish as hell. It's not as bad as it was in Narutaru but man it's just unappetizing to look at. characters: like I said over saturated with maniacs, rapists, and overall fucked up pre-teens. Any quality character came and went with the character development being after they learned they would die. I'd say yes it was pretty solid when that happened, but most characters were flimsier than a wet crepe until their time of death. BUT I loved that not all of them took a good route knowing what would happen. Some settled scores, some took it like a man/woman and some absolutely lost their shit, and I love that these characters were all unique.  not terrible I already know Gonzo fumbled the anime adaption.
