Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 24
I have some seriously mixed feelings about this episode. I honestly don’t agree with a lot of it and I think they could’ve done it a whole lot better. This kind of puts things in perspective now.
You follow a bunch of characters and their journey for freedom and you start to think that they’re the heroes. Are they though? I’m not saying that Gjallarhorn should win or anything, but I did not like how Orga was willing to sacrifice so many of his comrades by using them as decoys so that the old man could be escorted deeper into the city.
A leader that knowingly sends his men to die is not a leader at all. I thought that Mika, at least, would have something to say about that, but instead he was on board with it and fought as hard as he could. I wouldn’t be surprised if he, too, died during next week’s episode. I’d hate that, but I wouldn’t be surprised at this point. Not at all.
