Iron-Blooded Orphans up to episodes 3-5 (Capsule Review)

Read about these posts here.

Spoilery content below, for the episodes 3-5

I gotta say, I’m liking the tone of the narration and interactions in among the Tekkadan kids: Orga is the charming, honorable rogue, and generally they have a kind of optimistic drive that fits their age… with a hard edge built by years of violence.

Also… yay space combat!

And not only MS combat: I liked the ship-to-ship combat and the gamble maneuver.

Notice how they called the captured Graze “merchandise”, a nice touch. They are employing it in battle to save their lives, but it’s really intended for resell.

And finally, I liked the “surprise! Cannon to the sternum!” approach when Mika got out of the shuttle.
