Category Archives: Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
Sure, let’s check the value of this ring that clearly holds sentimental value for someone dealing with death in some way! The whole question of whether it’s a diamond or not even gets a nod during the resolution of the mystery, even though it’s completely unnecessary information. It’s really just there for the sake of the plot and the gimmick of the show.
This time I review:
Beautiful Bones 06: It’s a false suicide… AGAIN! Can we please stop with the “jumping to the conclusion that it’s a suicide”-bit of this show?! It isn’t that suicides couldn’t offer compelling story-material, it’s that this show constantly mistakenly talks about suicides when it really aren’t suicides in the traditional sense (even the one from the last arc was engineered by a crafty evil person after all). And could someone, aside from Sakurako, have some common sense in this show please…?
Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans 06/07: Tekkadan’s in trouble as its original plan has gone down in flames. All that’s left to do is find an alternative. Fearing Mikkazuki’s judgment Orga rushes himself to conclude that the only alternative are the Jupiter-mafia. But on their way there they are pursued by an “old friend” who has gotten some new friends and these new friends are actually greedy pirates/mercenaries. The fun never ends with these orphans!
I should’ve known… That mustache… Man, I should’ve known… Although, I have to admit, it’s brave choice. I mean, that mustache… let me tell you, LOTS of bad karma. Not surprised AT ALL how his story ended.
This time I review:
Subete ga F ni Naru 03/04: One died and the murderer is still on the loose! Things look dire in the science-prison-cubicle! But Nishinosono is committed to figuring out just what the hell is going on! Of course she relies on her pseudo-lover Saikawa for this since he’s the guy who actually does most of the deducing in that relationship. Meanwhile, the victim’s sister has arrived via helicopter and the guy who flew the helicopter got killed. Yep, let’s not question that and continue figuring out what the deal is with Magata’s prison-cell.
Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans 04/05: Tekkadan is off to a rocky start in its business-history as its very first mission is fraught with people betraying them left and right and there’s a giant organization called Gjallarhorn hunting them down as well. Luckily they have a REALLY good mecha-pilot in their midst and nobody takes them too serious this far. Of course, things are just gonna bound to get worse from here on out after Tekkadan’s ‘Maverick’ has paved his way to Earth with slaughter and mercilessness.
Review-Roundup: Subete ga F ni Naru 02, Hidan no Aria AA 01/02, Beautiful Bones 02, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans 03
Get it?! She doesn’t understand mundane stuff because she’s super-rich! It’s hilarious, isn’t it…?
This time I review:
Subete ga F ni Naru 02: Saiwaka, Nishinosono and… some other guys travel to the island where the genius Magata lives. After a load of exposition and some romantic shenanigans Saiwaka and Nishinosono arrive at the… let’s say, building where Magata lives and immediately become entangled in a shocking mystery.
Hidan no Aria AA 01/02: Despite the fact that Sherlock’s a fictional character as we all know, in this series there’s some tsundere-girl running around claiming to be his granddaughter or something. Another girl entirely who tries her hardest to be a moeblob wants fuck said Sherlock-granddaughter. Hilarity ensues!
Beautiful Bones 02: There’s a kid, there’s blood and there’s this boy who can’t help but get involved and when he gets involved, this other woman with genius-deduction-skills gets involved and that leads to a quick solution of the mystery. I probably can think of better ways to spend your freetime than doing the job of the police…
Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans 03: The orphan-revolt is happening fast and ends brutally. Also, some old dude with some old notions of honor and whatnot challenges the young genius-pilot Mikazuki to a duel.
Review-Roundup: Young Black Jack 02, Subete ga F ni Naru 01, Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid 01, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans 02
You know, a drug-addict… It’s that… thing some people do apparently when they aren’t feeling right. The series seems to never tire or reminding you that he’s a drug-addict while also never making it seem like he’s an actual drug-addict. He assisted in an operation again for God’s sake! And he gave a frigging speech about morality, too! What does this series think being an drug-addict is like?!
This time I review:
Young Black Jack 02: Way back when doctors were real numbnuts and couldn’t figure out how to transplant a heart. Turns out if you’re a genius-doctor and evil enough you could do it already. Because of some weird coincidences Jack finds himself in the position to do such an operation but his druggie-friend saves him from himself. So instead of killing that one person with the operation, he kills the other person with the operation and it’s all fine because he gives the dead person’s identity to the other person! Isn’t that heroic?!
Subete ga F ni Naru 01: A girl wants to fuck her teacher and some reclusive genius-scientist-lady is getting between her and that goal. Out of jealousy she urges the teacher and the rest of his class to visit said genius-scientist-lady.
Valkyrie Drive 01: Some innocent schoolgirl lands on an island where girls fuck other girls in order to battle each other.
Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans 02: The situation stinks, nobody’s happy but there’s a frigging Gundam in the middle of all of it, so this means more fighting is going to happen. Really, it’s just a bunch of orphans trying to fight for their survival and there’s some girl trying very hard to say something relevant but failing to do so this far.
Review-Roundup: Heavy Object 01, Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry 01, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans 01, Young Black Jack 01
Heroism ain’t what it used to be, eh? She’s literally suffocating in front of him and that’s all he’s thinking about…
This time I review:
Heavy Object 01: An Object is a big war-machine. Wars have become “cleaner” and more commonplace because now everybody has this stupid Object and starts fights with every idiot and his dog because every idiot and his dog have an Object. Also, the hero lands in the middle of the war trying to find a way to become rich quickly.
Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry 01: A dude who is SUPER-SPECIAL but is the underdog regardless because if a school gives you an F it’s just a sign of how shitty the school is. He lives together with a girl who is also SUPER-SPECIAL but she only gets As because she’s a princess and does nothing exceptional whatsoever (except, you know, just being exceptional). Turns out the dude is stronger than the girl which doesn’t unnerve her because she actually wants to fuck the dude. A hurray for complicated relationships! Also, it’s important for these two to help the school become REALLY prestigious again (since this is a thing you supposedly care about as a student)!
Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans 01: A Martian princess fights for Martian independence by trying out being a diplomat. She hires some idiot-orphans to be her bodyguard for very idealistically offending reasons (meaning she means well but still comes off as pretentious) and immediately gets to experience her first battle because as it turns out she’s more valuable to the bad guys if she’s dead than if she’s alive. Luckily said orphans just sort-of happen to own a Gundam – and one of those orphans is of course a genius-pilot.
Young Black Jack 01: The 60s… Hot times in a hot city named Tokyo and one hot doctor takes care of one… hot accident as brakes running too hot can’t stop a train from running over a boy. But Black Jack’s on the case! Boy lost some limbs but Black Jack sells his miraculous healing for a couple thousand yen to his parents. You know, because that’s what good doctors do. Good medicine is mercenary-work as we all know.
