Synopsis

Fourteen-year-old Kouichi Hayase’s life has always been a mediocre one, if not dismal. However, those days of being bullied by classmates and escaping to a fantasy of being a hero are put to an end when a certain “accident” bestows on him a girl and a gigantic humanoid robot called “LINEBARREL”. The extraordinary power that Kouichi obtains puts him and everything around him on a sudden rollercoaster ride of battles, intrigues and friendship! During the course of his adventure, the boy starts to learn what life has to offer; he meets new friends, bids farewell to the old ones, but most of all he now has considerable responsibilities and is forced to confront the world around him.

"An anime whose overall excitement level can be mathematically modeled by the Gaussian distribution function."

As with many other GONZO production, Kurogane no Linebarrels is loosely based on its manga original. Readers from the manga will find the anime not exactly following the story and in some cases the anime is loaded with fan servicing fillers. Please note that this review will judge Kurogane no Linebarrels solely as seen from the anime perspective.

GONZO started the series with a very rare approach, to bastardize the main protagonist (aka Hayase). Countless people turned away from the show after the first few episodes simply because of how much everyone read more

Alright, this anime finished recently, and I have to say I actually was anticipating for the last episode.

In brief I'll just say, I was on the verge of rage-quitting this anime after the first 3 episodes - and if it wasn't because I started late (so that I didn't have to wait in between weeks) I probably would have dropped this anime.

This is why I gave character the lowest scores, because the main character really annoyed me at first.

But despite that, I pulled through and the anime really is good.
I'm not a Mecha-anime fan, other than Full Metal Panic! I normally don't watch Mecha-anime (I read more

Recommendations

Both main characters have been bullied by the world and have friends to save them when they are in trouble. The friends are really nice, but the main character sees it as pity and gets upset with them. In both anime the main character goes from weak to strong and encounters a beautiful woman as well in the process.
Both have main characters that gain power and go nuts with it. Both classic examples of ultimate power corrupts absolutely. Light and Kouichi both have that evil laugh.
