bokurano ours, vol. 7

Komo's battle takes a shocking turn when the enemy pilot flees for his life...and then comes out of hiding where nobody would have expected.  Anko's battle begins not long after, but this time, the entire world is watching.  A broadcast crew from her father's TV news show comes along for the ride, letting the secret of Zearth out for good.

The kids are now basically under house arrest.  When a stranger comes forward to say that he's the pilot of Zearth, everyone finds out exactly what happens when grief, fear and rage are all put to the test.  The kids can't be seen in public once they're outed as possibly having something to do with Zearth and their parents are in danger as well.

Things are not going well.

Two more pilots take the helm in this volume, although Komo's battle is different from any that have taken place so far.  This volume leaves us with Anko fighting what seems like a losing battle.  Could this be the end of Zearth?

In this volume Mohiro really focused on family, or lack thereof.  Two absentee sort of fathers whose jobs took them away from their families and now they are struggling with those decisions.  I'm still searching for a way out for the remaining kids, but it's looking pretty bleak.
