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.
