 Just read your 4.5 years old commend on my profile and I have no clue what you were talking about. lol

You got this right.  Also, he chops off the political angle as distracting from the theme, missing that the theme of Bokurano is society's tendancy to sacrifice their own young people in order to maintain power and economic stability or growth.  Thanks to the effects of their real estate/economic bubble bursting in the 1990's and Japan's resulting "lost generation", generational warfare and the abuse of the younger generation by the older for economic reasons continues to be a common theme in Japanese fiction.  This theme was dealt with in three different ways in Bokurano, but he either missed it or ignored it to keep up his pretense for trolling purposes.

1. Most obvious, most of the kids had some personal damage in their lives from parents or teachers failing to act as their protectors for selfish reasons.

2. Also obvious, the government tried to hunt the kids down to control or kill them due to the damage caused by the robot fights, then shoved them back out into the fight as they realized their own lives might be on the line.

3. Less obvious, the pyramid-immortality-scheme running, super-dimension-ruling, original robot pilots that were the origin of this whole travesty were intentionally sacrificing entire planets to maintain their untouchable and otherworldly power and longevity. 

The third angle requires adoption of a particular perspective.  Ask yourself, how do we perceive the truly powerful? I'm not talking about small-change presidents or politicians, but about those who control wealth or armies to the extent that they have no need of visibility, and will take great steps to stay out of the inconvenient public eye.  Japan's younger generation could very well see the heads of major multinational holding companies as just such improperly deified and selfishly abusive men as those indicated as the source of these universe-eating robot wars.

Besides aesthetics, nothing major. Messaging system is less tedious, the biggest selling point is my recently formed club striving for tolerance "DTGB" (death to gay bastards).

And I came to deliver a wee song, this is one of the bands Dread Sovereign were influenced by.

You should consider making a mal account, you plebian scum. Why can't you just be like the cool kids?
