Iron man anime 04 works magic again

Now I’m simply confused; why does this simple little show works for me?

Man, even with the cheesy save by WOLVERINE (did the orignal comic feature guest appearance of Wolverine), I felt that it was satisfying in many ways. I did watch most of the first movie and the anime cleverly tacks onto it. The interweaving of the anime version of the flashback works just fine with the anime itself.

I didn’t find Nanami annoying this time. Even though the music score is the same as before, it works here, and like I said, tacking itself onto the movie really makes this episode thrilling and moving. It’s an advantage.

Once again…WTF is Wolvering doing here? A quick promo for the Japanese version of Wolvering? Honestly, man…

I know Clamp loves to put characters from one show into another. But this, too…?

The Wolverine here is very similar to Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. The custom design is nearly the same, if not a carbon copy. But hey, it’s another good episode in a basic superhero show.

It’s just that, having nearly the same type of enemy every week is starting to get Sailor Moon on me. Zodiac, Zodiac, and more Zodiac. Ho-hum.

Oh well, at least they’re sticking to the basics.

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.
