    This show is absolutely awesome
    It's been awhile since I've watched an anime that I sit through the opening and ending of every single episode because they are so good, fit the show perfectly and are often tied in well.

    The pacing is solid, plot and the 'world' are cool, great fight scenes that don't focus entirely on the mechs, great music throughout each episode and fantastic characters. All of the characters have their ...

    a Gundam anime that very different from the other titles
    One of the trickier things to get right in Gundam, is when they venture off into the alternate universe timelines. Iron-Blooded Orphans appears to be an all-new continuity but unlike some of its earlier compatriots, it looks to be something quite special indeed.

    Hope this stays the course
    This has got to be one of, if not best, Gundam series I've seen to date. The pacing and character development is pretty good and isn't all over the place <cough> ReconG <cough>, but there is enough overlapping arcs to keep things interesting.

    I don't think the series can be fully concluded in 25 episodes, but I do hope the major plotline is resolved satisfyingly. Consequently, I only gave it 4 ...

  • The best of the Gundam series
    While I could go on and on about technical details that make this series enjoyable, the best quality of this series is in the writing. While main characters aren't exactly disposable, they aren't sacred either. Neither are our assumptions about how human relationships should work. The writers also developed a clash between idealism and realpolitik quite well. I don't even have the ...
