Jormungand Episode 1

So, let me preface my thoughts of this show with the fact that I think that these sorts of modern-day battle shows (if I can call it that) are a pretty interesting spin on things (it's why I thought Black Lagoon was interesting). The show follows Jonah, a kid who hates arms dealers and weapons due to the loss of his parents to some new type of weapon, joining an arms dealer named Koko Hekmatyar. As opposed to the Italian mob boss you might expect, Koko is a fairly carefree leader who actually acts as a sort of comedic relief in the show. This first episode was just a mission that served to introduce us to how Koko operates and how the different members of her team do their thing. I thought the action was pretty cool...I surely wasn't expecting Jonah to redirect a missile with a grenade.

As for the music, the opening theme sounded really cool and fits the show nicely. The ending theme was a bit surprising, a really peaceful way to end the show. I'm sure it wasn't a bad song, but those types of songs don't usually keep my interest long enough for me to finish listening. The background music in the show also had a sort of "mission start" feel to them, if that makes sense. I'm not sure how they're planning on organizing the show...if it will just be mission-by-mission or if there's something going on in the background. Still, they've got me interested...should be fun to see what happens.
