Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episodes 39 and 40: Most hated character of all time

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episodes 39 and 40: Most hated character of all time

Yeah, I'm going to be trashing on Iok.


Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 38: Full Power

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 38: Full Power

Well, the fight between Barbatos and the Mobile Armor went...pretty quickly. After so many episodes, I feel like I still don't understand Mikazuki and Orga. At this point, it's looking like Mikazuki will become just like Ein by the end of the series, so I guess there's no hope for the harem, huh?


Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 37: Time for Trans Am?

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 37: Time for Trans Am?

I'm a little sad about Akihiro taking a back seat in this battle and melding into the background as usual, but I'm looking forward to the upcoming battle. I think this week's episode had a lot of good moments, specifically in that a lot of side characters got some action.


Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 36: That one guy who really should just quit

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 36: That one guy who really should just quit

Yeesh, Iok made this episode pretty cringe. Anyway, this week's episode starts the battle against the big bad Mobile Armor. Again, I feel like the episode has the problem of explaining things I don't care about and ignoring things I do. So more answers next week?


Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 35: The robots are taking over!

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 35: The robots are taking over!

Honestly, I don't mind a simple "take down the sentient AI" storyline in a Gundam series if that's what we're getting. Still, thinking more on it, it probably doesn't make much sense for this Mobile Armor incident to be more than an interruption. It does make all of the diplomatic maneuvering we've been getting before this point a bit questionable. And it's not like there would be too many other Mobile Armors to mobilize...right?


Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 34: Masks are so mysterious

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 34: Masks are so mysterious

Well, I was looking forward to seeing Vidar in combat for the first time, but was that an engagement against real enemies or just a training exercise? Maybe it was the training exercise from the start of the episode and the general atmosphere of the episode giving me that impression. Anyway, not all too much happening this week. Hopefully we get a battle between Gjallarhorn and Tekkadan next week.


Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 33: Conquest

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 33: Conquest

Well, time to take over Mars, guys. Not really too much else to get from this episode. Next week's episode title involves Vidar, so I guess it's finally time for Mr. Mask to do something rather than pretending to be mysterious.


Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 32: Flags raised

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 32: Flags raised

This week's episode leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I understand that the flags were literally screaming at us, but is it wrong to think it could have been handled better? I feel like we're going to need to see some strong character development out of this for it to be justified.


Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 31: Betrayal soon?

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 31: Betrayal soon?

Maybe I'm too sleep-deprived to be analyzing this show, but this episode has seemed pretty scattered. Maybe, more specifically, I had a problem with the excess narration. Also, it seems like they were setting Takaki up for something.


Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 30: Everything falling apart?

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 30: Everything falling apart?

To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of this episode. We're setting up all sorts of potential espionage surrounding Tekkadan and the fanning flames of war, which might end up working out, but this episode ended up being pretty uninteresting to watch. I think it mostly depends on where we end up after all of this buildup.
