Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 16
Very nice episode! There are a lot of things that I could say right now, but I’ll start with a simple; “it’s about damn time”. I think it was about time that they stopped messing about with their little organisations and whatnot.
First thing’s first; the princess finally opened her naïve little yes. She saw her friend (and many others) die before her very eyes because they tried fighting for their freedom. She was a target herself but her beloved maid, whom plotted to kill her also, ended up having a change of heart by catching the bullet that was meant for the princess. One can only hope that her eyes are finally opened after seeing all that bloodshed and that she finally stops with her ideas of attaining peace through negotiation when it’s quite clear that that’s not an option.
Now, it would seem that Tekkadan’s backers, the organisation that they pledged to, is an evil one after all. What a surprise… Come on… How could you not see this coming? It’s obvious that they had something like that planned from the very start. They would never have agreed to let those boys in if they themselves could not benefit from it.
The question is; will that playboy and his crew follow Orga and his family? Or will they remain loyal to that backstabbing organisation that plans to work with Gjallarhorn by helping them kill the princess. It’s annoying that they took so long to confirm the obvious, but oh well… Nice to see that I was right.
