Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 18

It is obvious that this madness is never going to end. It was obvious before the show even began. We all knew that at least 90% of all characters were going to be hostile, backstabbing goons that care more about money than about people’s lives.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.26_[2016.02.10_23.16.15]I say this because the princess had her time in the spotlight. She spoke her mind and told the world a little about what was going on. And for what? People know but most of them won’t do a damn thing. Those that will are nothing more than a small group of extremists that will end up the same way as those slaughtered protestors.

Now a masked stranger shows up and offers to become partners of sort. I’m not even going to waste any time by pointing out the obvious (he’ll just prove to be another backstabber when the time comes). I just hope that Tekkadan will soon get another Gundam suit. I would love it if they were the only ones with those suits, like you can expect to see in the Gundam series.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 18

I can remember how easy it was to write two or more posts a day when I still had my old job. I had very little to do during the day so all I ever really did was surf the web and write posts. Now that I have a job that actually requires me to work I noticed that writing multiple posts on the same day is quite challenging.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.31_[2016.02.08_23.33.05]I’ll just get right to it; I find it out that Haku is continuing on like normal. I mean, he found out that he is in fact ‘human’ and that the emperor is actually his older brother that created all those animal-eared humans. You’d think that he would be spending a lot more time at the palace, but no… Nothing seems to have changed.

Nobody knows about this (yet). Haku didn’t seem to want to profit from it. In fact; he’s going on yet another dangerous journey with his friends to delivery their allies some supplies so that they can continue their war. I just think it’s strange that the old man suddenly declared war like that. We have no idea what happened before that…

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 17

It was quite obvious that something like this was going to happen. I wanted to write this post yesterday but it was such a horrible day that I simply didn’t have it in me. Not that I find it necessary this week; it was an obvious episode.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.31_[2016.02.04_23.45.45]The only thing that’s really worth mentioning is that the enemy, as one could only expect, has at least one Gundam as well. We knew this was going to happen since they, Tekkadan, obtain their second Gundam from enemy pirates that they defeated. I’m sure that the boys will defeat that cocky noble and take his suit. Or maybe they’ll end up stealing it. Either way; I’m pretty sure that they will get that suit somehow.

I don’t think it’s worth mentioning that the princess is going to use whatever little influence she has left to make a nice speech on television so that she can tell the world (or the universe in their case) about what the hell is going on and about all the things she’s seen so far.

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen episode 17

What a fantastic episode! So many questions answered in one go! I love it! I thought that it was an amusing, far-fetched story, but now it seems that there’s a lot more to it than that. I am so glad I picked this show.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.18_[2016.02.01_23.11.50]I’m glad that they moved on. Watching a depressed Haku for too long would’ve really had a negative impact on the show. Instead they surprised us with one hell of an episode that basically explained the entire show in one go. I actually dare say that the story is actually plausible and not at all as sci-fi-ish as people thought it was.

To think an episode as this actually started out with Kuon treating Haku’s feed with some of her homemade ‘medicines’. You wouldn’t really expect to see anything as amazing as this after seeing something like that. They really tricked us big-time. Well done! I wouldn’t mind a lot more of episodes like these.

[HorribleSubs] Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.11_[2016.02.01_23.12.28]Now, I simply love what happened after Haku decided to amuse that old man and his stories. The mother of all twists arrived shortly after it turned out that humanity almost went instinct after most humans turned into those slimy things that they call curses. Those that didn’t turn were wiped out or died of natural causes. The only humans, apparently, are that old man and Haku, whom, apparently, turn out to be brothers. All other living creatures are basically created by that old man to keep him company. Amazing stuff. It’s going to be a pain to wait until the next episode. I want it now!

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.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.18_[2016.01.28_00.02.05]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.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.05_[2016.01.28_00.02.47]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.
