Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 25

A pretty feisty ending if you ask me. I certainly have mixed feelings, but it doesn’t really matter. The second season will arrive later this year and we already have a good idea of what to expect from it.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 25 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.32_[2016.03.30_23.46.08]I’ll start with McGillis; he killed his friend and used people as puppets in order to gain more and more power. The guy is obviously insane. He thinks that Gjallarhorn is so corrupt that killing, betraying and using people is the only way to restore it to its former glory. Smart… Cleaning a corrupt organisation by using your allies as disposable puppets.

I know it looks like Tekkadan succeeded. They managed to get to old man to his destination and all ended well for them. We all know that it’s only a temporary thing. The boys will go back only to be pulled back into another fight. That lunatic McGillis and their own organisation’s boss are out for more and more power.

Heavy Object episode 24

I suppose this was a pretty good ending if you compare it to other anime. I would love another season of this, but I highly doubt that we’ll get to see any more content any time soon (if ever). There’s still a possibility since they didn’t tie up all the loose ends.

[Ohys-Raws] Heavy Object - 24 END (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_23.05_[2016.03.26_23.48.39]We all knew that Qwenthur wouldn’t die. We knew that much. Being helped by the enemy is kind of embarrassing, asking them for their help afterwards was even worse but actually kneeling was the finisher. I know that he would do anything to help his friends, but kneeling for that cocky loli wasn’t cool no matter what.

But yeah, das wunderkind managed to pull of another miracle and ended up destroying the princess’ Object in order to prevent her from being killed by that A.I. controlled Object after hers was hijacked. What pisses me off is that that geezer wasn’t caught and that it ended with the princess landing into the arms of Qwenthur. That is why I hope for another season.

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.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.14_[2016.03.23_23.54.06]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.

Heavy Object episode 23

I’ll be honest and say that I have no idea what they’re trying to accomplish. It’s all been about the same thing; taking out each other’s Objects. We’re just going ‘round and ‘round. The strange thing about that is that I wouldn’t mind another season of this.

[Ohys-Raws] Heavy Object - 23 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.39_[2016.03.20_23.45.05]This episode was actually kind of obvious. The characters in this show really don’t like to kill when they can just as well ‘talk’ it out. I mean, they sentenced that old geezer to prison after they caught him and now he’s about to start a new world war after escaping his imprisonment. I don’t even want to know how he escaped.

The point is; he is going to use the princess and her Object to start a global free for all with Objects and elites as the players. The irritating part is that the boys could’ve prevented it from happening if they had just destroyed that guy’s power supply by shooting up the cables or something. I didn’t see a back-up generator, so…

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans episode 23

Okay, I have mixed feelings about this episode because there was something that I was happy with and one or two things that I was less happy with.  I know that’s usually the case, but we are nearing the end (I think?) and I see no plausible ending in sight.

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.57_[2016.03.16_23.54.41]I’m happy that Mika-kun took revenge for his fallen comrade. That woman killed one of those kids without even knowing them just because she was ordered to. Killing people blindly is unforgivable and needs to be repaid in kind. She is now dead, her mission failed; the debt has been successfully repaid. That’s the good part.

The slightly less good part is that Gjallarhorn seems to have at least one powerful Gundam suit and brand-new super soldiers to pilot it. The underdog is once again forced to scurry along as the big dogs hunt them down. Nothing will ever change for as long as Tekkadan keeps trusting random characters. It’s an endless loop.
