For everyone going on about how stupid the name of this show is, you should probably do some research into Japanese history. Specifically The Battle of Okinawa during WWII

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Okinawa#Tekketsu_Kinnotai

Where the Japanese Imperial Army mobilized 1,780 middle school boys aged 14–17 years into front-line-service. They were named "Tekketsu Kinnotai" (Iron and Blood Imperial Corps)

It's named Iron-Blooded Orphans for a reason, not because the creators are stupid

I personally like the name but I do realize I'm in the minority here. But honestly, as long as an anime is good, I could care less what the name is.

Also citing Wikipedia. Lol.

I really don't see how the name isn't fitting, just going off the first two episodes. What are people complaining about?

This is the first time I've heard of anyone complaining, which makes sense to me as it was not that bad as anime names go.

If your trying to back up historical facts Wikipedia is the worst thing to cite. I wouldn't be picky if it was a game/anime/whatever.

Wikipedia is generally truthful. It even has links to real sources if you want to check that too. This shouldn't bean easy way to dismiss someone's argument. That's just being lazy.

About as smart as naming something Kamikaze. I don't have a problem with the name, but the historical precedent . kinda.

Moving past the arguments over Wikipedia, here's a little article from the Japan Times where they interview one of the Tekketsu Kinnotai who survived the Battle of Okinawa:

http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2015/05/19/national/history/survivor-recalls-battle-okinawa-horrors/#.Vhw1TvlVhBc

A pretty harsh environment to be a teenager, that's to be sure.

I've closed this because you had already made a post that says exactly this (except for the last sentence) in the show's discussion thread, and there doesn't seem to be any particular reason to start a whole new thread for it.

For anyone who's participated here who wants to continue the discussion or repost your thoughts, here's a link to the original post:
