It has been at least 15 years since I have watched a mecha anime

It has been at least 15 years since I have watched a mecha anime (other than Samurai Flamenco, which doesn't really count)...but I just finished off the first season of MSG: Iron-Blooded Orphans.

Was anyone else rekindled by this show? It reminded me of the early days of eva and outlaw star...back when anime was fun and I couldn't help but watch the next episode, no matter how late I was staying up.

The last anime that made me feel like this was either Shiki or Spice and Wolf...

9 for me

Jesus Christ it really has been 9 years since TTGL

Damn dude.

I just remember watching the first ep of "thunderbolt" or whatever that shitty gundam series was and thinking "wow, this franchise is totally dead. It will never be seinen and it has fallen into naruto/fma territory"

>>138908599
24, hell after the credits there's even a preview of the next episode.

I like that this is probably the first Gundam where the show openly admits that the MCs have mental health issues, instead of them just turning out that way because the writer has problems himself. (Looking at you, Tomino.)
>>
>>138908523
You finished off ALL of the first season? The first season that hasn't finished yet?
Tell us, oh great time traveller, the ending

>>138908721
I want Mika to heal.

It almost turned me off to the genre forever for being such a retarded clusterfuck, so no.

watching ibo has made me lose hope for gundam tv series. thunderbolt is great
>>
>>138908721
all gundam pilots are fucked up in some way.

I don't think any of them have no issues/are generic stand-in disney chars
>>
>>138909182
wtf is up with you man

i bet you stopped watching outlaw star when they did the hot springs scenes
>>
Nah.

I dropped it because I couldn't take how comedic is was making child soldiers compared to how bleak Fafner treated having to use child soldiers in the same season.

You didn't get any kids returning home and crying while holding warm rice because of all the people who died from starvation on their death march during the dead of winter in IBO.

>>138908523
10 for me

Last mecha i watched, i don't even remember how it ended, just that it was a war on squids on a giant boat.

Think i saw it about 2 years ago.

It's been a while since a Gundam finale managed to get me on the edge of my seat like last ep.

Watch Gundam 00 m8, you'll probably like it.
>>
>>138908523
It's the worst mecha show I haven't dropped, worse even than Aldnoah Zero S2, which at least had some redeemable scenes. It's so bad it retroactively made me want to get back to Captain Earth.
>>
Gundam IBO is pretty good, yeah. Good on you OP for enjoying something and making a positive post instead of a "THIS SUCKS SHIT LOL" one.

>>138911412
This show was great too. Very chill, sexy and intriguing. Season 2 when?
>>
>>138911866
Oh look, found the /m/oron

Harsh but fair.

>>138912358
Not same anon, but yeah, there's a few angsty pretentious lil shitheads on /a/ who will shit on anything no matter how good it may be.
>>
But I think both thunderbolt and ibo are brilliant, what now?
>>
>>138909135
Kamille's autism comment is totally brushed aside and most of the time people act like he's just a rascally kid when he basically very nearly went on a killing spree in the first episode of Zeta.

And then there's Bellri Zenam, who is so clearly a psychopath but the show keeps acting like he's that innocent sweetheart that never wanted to get involved in war.

>It's the worst mecha show
Not OP, just wanted to ask you to please start using a tripcode regularly already, so I can block you

You know that you can portray a character having mental issues without it being IN YOUR FACE to a retarded extent like with Mika.
Lack of any subtlety is IBO's problem in general.

If you think anyone who shits on IBO is just being contrarian, you are greatly exaggerating IBO's reputation.
>>
>>138913875
Mika is just a shittier version of Hiiro, if such a thing is even fucking possible.

In fact, I'd even go as far as to say that Wing treats the whole consent of fuccboi lookin child soldiers with more dignity and respect than IBO and it's AM I COOL YET ANIKI WE GOTTA BE COOL ALL THE TIME SO COOL faggotry that is the entirety of their personality.
