1st episode.

Not bad at all. Neet mix of old school an cgi made to look more like the animation style. Really surprised it was pretty good for a pilot. Tho it reminded me of Marvels Nighthawk a bit .

2nd episode..

They said " equip your Bone." ...... An " Bone crush"

Ok baring the dumb name this will be my saterday morning anime replacement for Nobagun. Feels very old school story telling . The illustration styel is simple but the cgi is redone to fit into that style very well.

Also was wrong its not Nighthawk its http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darkhawk that this show origin reminds me of a bit.

edit

3rd episode was good

Silly lines include but are not limited to.. " hurry up an equip your bone!" an " if aliens attack i would try the tickle attack "

also end song is great..

@takashichea: Thanks.

4th episode was good. Even tho it had a power ranger feel to it at times that felt tad cheesy. But it still has a old school shonen vibe to the show.

5th episode added another team member thats a pain.

They add another one an it take them 20 minutes to transform then fight in the next episode sheesh. This shows now a guilty pleasure. When its good its like old school shonen . When its bad its like Beavis and Butthead "he said bone" moments that make it funny.

@takashichea: this is one of those shows that has a transformation animation recycle. That will be used again an again. An just as i predicted even with them one screening 4 of the transformations it shoved part of a fight into the next episode.

6 was not bad but dam those transformation animations. It makes the show look worse than it is. Now something of note you rarely hear any more " peace is won threw force " . Now some would say this is a shift in overall out look on how things are done because of world events. I would say naw its something thats been shown in shonen for years. Just rarely put out there in word form.

That alone made it a good episode for me. Still impressed with the cgi cell shaded look of the show. It feels overall that the age group its aimed at an then some with the adult jokes an the main characters magazine tastes makes one wonder how long it will tell multi tiered story elements. Hope for the entire series.

7 was not bad . Decent amount of dialogue that was pretty good for the age group its aimed at. An thats good. Snappy banter a side it had something else going for it. No transformations. For what it is an the age group its aimed at its really not a bad show. Just it suffers from a bad name really . !3-14 year olds would probably still find this a fun show. An adults who like me can think like a kid... err wait thats not a good thing is it?

8 backs up some of my thought on shows dumbed down for the age groups. Where as The anime Marvel has this season is dumbed down to the point of being not entertaining for me. This show seems to mix it up a bit. Main characters a bit wishy washy now. Wavering determination seems almost refreshing in the sow. Tho if they keep it up its a negative aspect of the show then. So hopefully that drops away at 9.

@Marshal Victory:

I actually seen the first 9 minutes of the first episode, but I didn't have time to finish during finals week. My first impression was it was a kid show. The drawing is a bit rough. Reminds me of old cartoon shows. I think the girl reminds me of Akiho from Robotics;Notes because how of her Genki personality. By Genki, I mean she's very energetic and passionate.

@Marshal Victory: Well, I do feel a certain amount of Repetition from Ryuujin Shogo character. He needs to get over the fact that he is not the cause of the problem. People would've been hurt regardless.

@Low: Yeah its odd in shonen to have a reluctant hero this long into the series an not have it get on peoples nerves. Which from posts on other sites it seems to have. Episode 8 continued that trend. But when he was fired up to fight it was not the auto win you see in many shonen series.

That said its nice that they do not do the auto win. At times i look at the animation an marvel at the slick cgi in the illustration style. An then theres times on looks at the simple illustration line style an it does not look so good. I understand the age group this is aimed at an have to wonder how well its doing with them. Will have to track down the tv ratings for this some time.

@takashichea: Yeah its shonen for younger age group. But it has some stuff built in for the old folk to. The line style the illustrations are simple but the cgi in the fights blend into that style fairly well. The aimed at age group is not the problem with the show. Its the drug out reluctant main character. Tho I swear the last few episodes the illustration style has gotten less an less detailed.

@Marshal Victory: I just got weirded by the fact that the guy has already entered 3 fights with the same troubled mindset. First one, he got over it with resolve to "save" those around him. Second time around, he had issues that they were "human". And then, when they were confirmed ET's, he develops a new issue concerning the wellbeing of those around if he is to be active in the field. He definitely needs to get over the fact soon.

Well the latest chapter was pretty good in the sense, we got to know the mechanics of the pocket dimension they use for battles. Those two guys were superhumanly strong.

@Low: 10 got better in that regard. Hes more at peace with what he is protecting an goal set now.

Overall the series tho languished to long on the reluctant hero trope has been pretty good. With some complex story telling for what its age group it was aimed at. An again this reminds me of older shonen. Well minus the cgi way to long transformation scenes.

@Marshal Victory: Those transformation scenes remind me of Daigunder's merging sequence. lol Rest aside, I'm looking forward to how it all plays out. I for one want to see battles taking place on real world.

@Low: 11 grants your wish.

Also best line " Think of your Bone as a alien creature." that does explain a lot now don't it. Bevis an Butthead would die laughing watching this show.

11 was fun enuff to keep me watching.

@Marshal Victory: I'm glad you didn't include spoilers (much anyway). I haven't had the time to watch the latest episode. Maybe tomorrow.

Post by Marshal Victory (2,138 posts) See mini bio Level 13

@Low: I try to include the episode number 1st before I comment usually. So it can ward off ya if not seen it. Most of time if I am not to sick an tired will use spoilers if needed. But I'm human an forget when replying some times.

11 was fun enuff for me to keep watching. The quote is more making fun of the dialogue than spoiler like. As they have go on about how the "bones" respond to a users will an react to their mental state. Curious what ya think of 11 when ya get the chance to watch it.

Im quite impressed to be honest. That punch by Dragon Bone had a multi city block area of effect, and shockwaves affecting the entire city. The girl got punchehd through multiple mountains at that. I definitely like what I saw in that last episode. To think that bones are affected by gravity so much, and they can fly. Well, so did Ryuujin Shougo I guess.

I just hope everyone else can fight without revelation cocoon.

@Low: The gravity hook does not make sense really. Unless its a built in psyco logic limiter. Other wise the battles would tear the planet apart.

I'm glade their done with the cgi arena an we see some real world dust up tho. Also the female villain armor looked way cooler than the rest of the groups armors.Especially on the villain side.
