This, however, is the backdrop to a much more personable story. Once again ladies and gentleman, this is onle one of the many examples I have for this review. I have to admit, getting into this show at first made me nervous. A weapon that is called Gundam must be , with an unparalleled look and ability. The plot is interesting, with a different background that the regular Gundam anime.
These children were either abandoned at a young age or forced to work to pay off their family's debts. However, their coup d'état fails, and they are forced to flee to Mars, where McGillis is killed after a last, failed attempt to kill Rustal and Tekkadan is disbanded after Arianhod launches an attack to exterminate all members and make an example out of them, but only a few, including Mikazuki, sacrifice themselves to hold out the enemy long enough for their companions to escape safely. Now I'm going to have to include a spoiler, so if you arent caught up you might want to exit this review.

An easy-to-follow story with flow and focus, exciting space combats, strong both male and female characters, some well-placed plot twists and a little bit of romance and comedy just to spice things up. McGillis Fareed goes from being an enemy of Tekkadan to an ally under the alias of Montag.
All of this comes to a head when Kudelia finally makes it to Earth. The story is brutal, engaging, and surprisingly relevant. Though I watched Robotech and Voltron as a child, I officially became an anime fan in 1994 through Dragon Ball Z during a trip to the Philippines. Iron Blooded Orphans has many of the typical elements you would find from a Gundam series. The amount of relationships in this show is really special and something to take by heart.
The series' focus on overt displays of masculinity is also an odd choice. I have watched a few mech series in the past none of them being Gundam. We can see strong friendships, trust, how they all deal with tragic deaths of their families, friends and comrades, how they try to find their place in this messed up world and not losing hope. To him, the best defense is a good offense. The series establishes them as a resourceful, world - and space-dominating organisation, yet they are shown as incredibly incompetent. More like a fight to make things better.
There's been plenty of talk about the choice of , melodrama writer extraordinaire, as the head of series composition for this show. Overall 10 Story 10 Animation 9 Sound 10 Character 10 Enjoyment 10 Before I get into the review this is the first Gundam series I have watched. The first half of the last episode and the last half could have been very different episodes. Rarely are there any episodes which make good use of the darkness of the subject matter. Some characters in the series are portrayed to be rather shallow and are over-the-top in their villainy, notable case being Kudel Cadel of the Brewers. Starting out as mercenaries, they are thrown into a conflict they don't really understand in the beginning and struggle to stay alive along the way.
Besides Mikazuki, the series also explores the good deal of abuse that child soldiers are subjected to through military factions like the Brewers as the children are subjected to fear and abuse, as well as being forced into getting the risky Alaya Vijnana implants used to empower the mobile suits they pilot. A movement begins to rally behind a so-called Maiden of Revolution, the young idealist Kudelia Aina Bernstein. Throughout the series he shows hardly any sympathy or remorse and kills all of his opponents without mercy. As for the rest of the cast, it would take up too much of the rest of the review! Trafficking and slavery run rampant, and one such use for this endless supply of human labor is as child soldiers. The universe of the show has colonies that shows wealth with its rich technology and weapons of war As such, it brings legitimacy to their statuses. Character - 6 They have a pretty big cast, but only 4-6 of them are important in each episode. I really never understood or believed the rationality behind some of the main characters motivations - particularly Mikazuki.
While they can be piloted via traditional controls, they are most effective when under the control of the Alaya-Vijnana system. Although this series spans 50 episodes, you leave with the feeling that the show was never finished. She does not know how to juggle subplots and can only focus on one thing at a time. Ultimately, Iron-Blooded Orphans is a show that deals with some pretty serious and ambitious topics. The art and sound are alright the show looks decent and the music isn't really amazing except for the opening and ending. Some of its core members such as McGillis Fareed, Gaelio Bauduin, Ein Dalton, and among others has their own ideologies. Mari Okada is not talented enough to write a varied cast like Yoshiyuki Tomino is.
The story does not let up on entertainment and the episodes that don't focus on battles aren't boring to watch as the characters interactions can be quite entertaining. Gundam has always been a drama, and this first hour has nailed the various moving parts of a power imbalance that's ready to blow. You have to really fuck up on some Reconguista type shit for me not to like you and it's definitely no where near as bad as that trash. This anime pretty much did the same thing Akame Ga Kill did, killing of characters in the dumbest of ways. It's not a masterpiece and not mediocre, so its got to be somewhere in between. For now, it seems like a natural fit for his character, though, given his life experiences and all. Orga in particular is a very forgettable character.
If you are into interesting characters getting into epic mechs for 20 minute fights than this is a show for you. So after i saw this adaptation, i wasn't really interested in it, but because of the popularity, i got curious and i tried to watch it and! Think of a long running anime that you really like.
