Iron Man Anime 03 review and thoughts

Am I impressed? Well, any anime would has a hard time impressing a veteran. Am I quite satisfied and oddly inspired?

Yeah, I’m, actually. Going back to the basics is really daring and impressive in today’s age.

Look, I didn’t expect to even bother with this show. I mean, I’ve never read the original manga comic and I didn’t even finish the first movie! But you know, there’s something cool about a rich geek dude who realizes that he actually hates evil and rather do good that impresses me a lot. Not to mention he actually gets to forge metal! The dude may be rich, but he’s quite down to earth and he’s not a bankster, or one of these unrealistic millennials who think that internet can change everything (what a bunch of dweebs).

Tony Stark is almost a revolutionary in today’s age. He’s rich. He sold weapons of mass destruction for a living. But he realized that it was fucking wrong and he changed his ways. Imagine FUCKING REPUBLICANS and some FUCKING DEMOCRATS do that. Fuck no. But for Tony Stark, fuck yes. That’s in my inifinitely not even remotely humble opinion, awesome.

Now, has the anime channelled the spirit of the character from Marvel?

Well…I don’t give a fuck about American Hollywood franchises, so what do I care? The anime is actually cool! It gets down to the basics, no bullshit, no unrealistic crap.

I was cheering for the anime Tony Stark when he has to use some elbow greese to help the mom and the kid. Forget the suit – it’s in repairs. I was rooting for him to save them from the bus sinking in the sea. HELL YEAH!

The show’s got simple drama, it has simple plots and it’s got simple and identifiable characters. No Eva BS, no tree hugging hippies, no lying POLITIANS (who the fuck elected these whores) and no bullshit. Jesus flying Christ, what else can an animation fan ask for?

No apologies from me and no bullshit. I heartily recommend this show…

For now. I do. For now.

Let’s hope they don’t fuck it up good. The episodic nature can become rather tedious. We’ll see.

Iron Man Anime Episode 1 Review

We were at the panel that premiereed the Iron Man Anime, the colloration effort between Marvel and Madhouse. Having not seen the Iron Man movie nor having not read the comic, I have limited interest in the franchise. That said, I’ll begin with the plot and the review. Those who want to be surprised, don’t read the plot part. Also see Anime News Network’s review, written by Todd Ciolek.
