Boku No Pico is a critically acclaimed anime series(OVA) which has won awards. Surprisingly this doesn’t go well with Anime and Manga fans. Boku No Pico is an OVA series which is produced by the Madhouse Studio. The studio which is responsible for producing many great shows which includes Death Note, Hellsing Ultimate etc. There are many manga and anime which are very hyped and they deliver upto their reputation. But sometimes there are exceptional cases too, and Boku No Pico is such an example of overrated anime series.
The writer of this series is Hiromu Arakawa who also has written Fullmetal Alchemist. This series is directed by Nakamura Kenji the one who also directed Big O, Serial Experiments Lain kind of shows.
Boku No Pico comprises of three episodes, I have no clue how the writer has linked these three together. At one moment there is a certain character in the series and in the next moment, the character vanishes.. The plot of this story is very poorly written and It’s about three little boys fucking. Yes it’s bad, It also includes a manga chapter.
The official game of Boku No Pico is on the way to release it was announced quite a long time ago. The series also has a highly acclaimed music by the singer Yoko Kanno, which is quite popular in Japan. Boku No Pico involves quite high production cost due to which characters were product tested quite a lot.
The show tries to explores many philosophical contents like existentialism, loneliness and the struggle which every human face in once a while in adjusting in the changing world. But this show only tries but in reality it doesn’t deliver so. In Boku No Pico, although all the sex is male/male, the tone is drastically different from yaoi anime, which is geared towards women. Boku no Pico is probably at its most “male gaze”-y whenever the boys crossdress only to do something that shows off their winkies.
The anime series despite having lot of flaws like unnecessary explicit scenes, low-grade , poor character development, is a bit light hearted. Due its explicit sex scenes and pedophilic nature, it’s often used as a troll suggestion to anime newcomers and as a shock video. The ending is considered bittersweet by lot of reviewers. The anime series take a lot of examples from Anglo Spanish wars and Franco Prussian Wars.
The setting of Boku No Pico is quite normal, the main character is working in a cafe with his grandfather and the setting of the series have taken example from the critically acclaimed series “Sound of the Sky” which is definitely worth watching and is set a post apocalyptic kind of world.
What Is Boku No Pico Anime About?
Here arrives the plot of Boku No Pico which can be said to be the main weak point of this anime series. As from the starting it can be observed that the series is rushed characters are unnecessarily added and removed like nothing happened. Like the thing happened with Tamotsu. He is shown in the first episode but after that god knows where he went to and how Pico another child.
Pico is working in a cafe with his grandfather where suddenly one day Tamotsu arrives after getting dissatisfied from the broken binoculars which were placed around the beach. In the cafe he met the grandfather of Pico who told him to become friend with Pico out of nowhere like he trust this guy a lot even if he had met him for first time.
Pico went with Tamotsu for playing with him as he don’t have any friends. Where he came to know that Tamotsu is actually the captain of a Private Military Company which works and plans to overthrow the current working government in power. After that he gets intimate with Tamotsu as they gets drenched in rain. So, in order to not take the relationship forward Pico trims his hair and ran away from the home.
From the first episode, you will realize, this show is just ain’t normal. Because in one of the earlier scenes in the first episode, Mokkun (the pedophile) gave some ice cream to Pico. In the car, whilst Pico was seductively eating the ice cream as Mokkun was watching, it dripped on him which is foreshadowing/resembling to semen.
In the next episode no one knows what happened to Tamotsu and Pico meets other boy Chico near the river with whom he became friends easily and they both started to play with each other. They also started to develop intimate and sexual relationship. Grandfather of Pico doesn’t seems to be bothered by all this as it is completely normal.
Pico play with Chico quite a lot and they become friends. Chico’s Onesaan or his sister lives alone with Chico. So, Pico and Chico often plays with Chico’s sister cosplay outfits and often spy on his sister.
In the final episode of Boku No Pico they met a girl named Coco whom Pico saw last night who is the main female protagonist of this story. As the time went on the three of them starts to firm a kind of relationship with each other. She lives in a hidden base in the underground tunnel. But after an incident Coco began to distance herself from the Pico and Chico but at the end they all meet at Tokyo Tower with help of the power of friendship.
After which a lot of twists and turns unnecessarily happens which makes this anime series very rushed and doesn’t make sense. The end of Boku No Pico is very bittersweet. The main highlight of this whole series is explicit series on which writer put the most emphasis on. In one scene characters are seeing talking and in the next they are getting intimate. They are sitting nude, suddenly gets nude. This series is really a let down.

He is the one who is very close to Pico. He have brown hairs and is the one who provides some comic relief in Boku No Pico. He lives with his sister in a secluded area in a large house. The story gets weird when Pico suddenly starts to live Chico without his grandfather even knowing about this.
His grandfather doesn’t seems to be worried by this fact Pico have gone for quite a long time. Well, Chico is quite a good character but he is younger than Pico and doesn’t do work properly. He can’t even lay the traps properly.

Flaws In Boku No Pico
If you cannot finish this anime series you cannot call yourself a man as it is shown as a test of your masculinity. Boku No Pico, is the ultimate test of masculinity.
It is a hoo scotch of lot of things. If you enjoy adult stuff then you will definitely enjoy it. If you like BL then you will enjoy it.
Boku No Pico will check your masculinity from time to time and there is a lot of semen foreshadowing scenes involved in this series. Mind you, there is no scarce of disturbing scenes.
Boku No Pico involves no romanticism considering what the whole series is about. There is Makkan having sex with an underage boy whom he misunderstood as a girl. I feel the writer wanted Boku No Pico it to be Super unique, but failed miserably.
This is simply a torture. The Only good thing about Boku No Pico is the sound effects, You can hear and feel the sexy sound in a very detailed manner.
I felt that there was no romance but serious lust in the series. There is not a single rose used in this anime series to confess love or have romance. What is there is simply getting intimate with each other and after that story suddenly moves forward don’t know what happened and again this torture starts.
Pico is even made to wear girlish clothes at first but he began to enjoy wearing this attire. In every episode Pico can be seen wearing girlish attires. Which is very weird as at first he finds it quite embarrassing but now he suddenly began to enjoy it out of nowhere.
There is a lot of underage explicit scenes which are very hard to digest and on top of that these intimate scenes are shown very normally.
Character Development is the least focused subject in Boku No Pico. As, it is not shown that whether Mokkun loves Pico or not. Is he manipulating Pico or is Pico simply following him. Don’t know what happened with Mokkun’s character but he can’t be find after first chapter after the sudden ending of first chapter.
Pico too is shrouded in mystery with his grandpa as his grandpa mare him wear embarrassing attire and after Pico left home he doesn’t seems to be caring and Pico, too a different character as he visits his grandpa to enjoy summer holidays but after a while he left the cafe and runs away for no reason, which is quite weird.
