A single bard is useless.

But put two together and they can move mountains, or at least scam the locals into doing it for them.

Maybe it's with one bard the enemy looks at them and goes 'my god nobody can be this stupid', kills them and then gets on with their job. With two bards it's 'my god nobody could be this stupid, wait there's another one, maybe you can be this stupid or maybe they're actually smart?'

It's Bokurano. The sort of show that is so colossaly grim it's just difficult to accept the narrative at all. The parts that make it worth watching are the I HAVE TO WHAT moments, so if you want to watch it, don't read the rest.

Fifteen kids get conned into entering a sort of galactic tournament-style fight for the right of their universe to not be obliterated because some ascendant species somewhere thinks the multiverse needs trimming. You get a colossal half-kilometre-tall robot that is factuall indestructible to anything but other such robots that is powered by your own life. If you get selected as pilot, you're called to fight. If you fight and win you die. If you fight and lose, EVERYBODY dies. If you don't fight at all, everybody dies. If the other guys kills himself, you have to fight again until you die. If neither of you fight, you BOTH die. And every time you win, you cause another universe almost identical to your own to be destroyed. If you win the final fight, you live, but only if you agreed to go to another universe and recruit fifteen more people for the next round. And this weapon is in the hands of deeply fucked-up thirteen-year-olds so far out of their depth they can't even see the surface any more. And their only source of help is a psychpathic, sadistic robot with a penchant for causing torment to everyone in its power.

It's pretty much as 'GM's revenge' as it is possible for anything to be.

The anime whitewashes it. The last guy goes out like a hero.

In the manga, it's even worse. The last enemy pilot is insane, and flees his machine to hide amid the populace of his own world.

So to beat him, everyone has to die. The giant robot has to kill everyone on that world. Which isn't really murder, as they're all going to die the moment the fight is over.

The show is... mixed. The main narrative is varied from good to irksome. The supernarrative makes no sense on reflection, and its good moments come from the sheer FUCK YOU of the reveals, which are like being kicked in the emotional testicles. The actual fights aren't that flashy or interesting, although to some extent it's nice that a battle between billion-tonne robots is slow and slugging and destroys everything around it.

No, the thing that makes it truly worth watching is the character work. Each character gets at least one episode in which they're the focus, and you get to see just how an unstable teenager with a half-formed personality reacts to being put in the worst situation physically possible with scarcely the time to process it. What little joy in the show comes from the bittersweet way many character go out, which, despite still being grim as all flying fuck, is almost happy compared to the events leading up to it.

It's not violently grim, per se. Although the characters and people to tend to be bastards, it's not to the soul-grinding extreme of the Gungrave show. It is as dark as you can possibly get, though. I mean, shit, you would have to actively start from the Bokurano premise and work onwards to make a darker setting.

Not darker, but certainly more bleak; the Gungrave anime. It takes a PREPOSTERONE fighting game that is basically a mafia-themed DMC and turns it into the single most soul-crushingly ruthless crime tragedy I've seen in any medium. Although it doesn't have the sheer dark scale of Bokurano, the sheer comprehensiveness with which it works its cruel magic makes it much more personal.

The actual narrative starts with the main characters getting every single person they know callously executed by a major mob figure, because the protagonist got involved in a trivial brawl.

This is the lightest the show ever is. At no point will it be this happy again.

Almost every single character ever named in the ENTIRE SHOW achieves their dreams, only to watch them burn to ash around them before they die cold and alone. Half of the characters are destroyed by betrayal before being killed by treacherous friends, and the other half sacrifice everything dear to them to their own ambitions before seeing it all crumble, and die knowing the price they truly paid for their ephemeral gains. Whenever the show runs out of 'good guys' that have some sympathy to kill off and has to kill a guy you hate, they immediately do everything they can to bring a sympathetic viewpoint to them, before, again, leaving them to die in the ruins of their dreams.

The exception to this is the protagonist, who is different in that he never even gets what he wants. He sacrifices his ideals and ambitions to buy a chance to get to his love interest, but by the time she returns his feelings in full he feels so tainted by what he has done he rejects her utterly. He sacrifices his own humanity to protect those close to him, before being betrayed by his cloest friend, who executes him AFTER the protagonist shows him he cannot kill the man, even after everything he has done. He COMES BACK FROM THE DEAD to try and protect those still important to him, only to fail utterly as they are all killed. He kills everyone he ever knew in trying to protect the one thing his love left behind, and when at last he confronts his betrayer and friend, who has by now destroyed literally every single thing of worth in his life, realises he cannot kill him because he is the last remnant of the life he once had. And even THEN he kills him anyway, to save him from a cruel execution by those he betrayed, and dies himself. AND EVEN THEN, when he is dead, he STILL cannot be with the one he loves even now, because after he rejected her she fell in love with someone else.

By the time the credits roll, the only one left standing is a young girl who has seen every single person she ever cared for killed literally in front of her eyes.

After the last episodes rolled, I spent the next half hour just staring blankly at the screen, trying to come to terms with what the fuck I had just borne witness to. The entire thing left me feeling hollow for days as I tried to process it.

It's pretty grim.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the Gungrave anime. I really dug the Gungrave: Overdose game, though I didn't care for the original.

The thing that really struck me about the anime was that it was not afraid to take its time developing the characters. Everyone got a bit of back story and the plot kept moving at a good pace, but never felt rushed. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys gangland dramas.
