oh dear... too much character giving me bad time remembering all of them >.<"

Seems like even at war, weapon can be deal in credit term as well LOL... well, war is expensive .

Last episode seems like giving the the impression of Koko's body guard are being too overpowered but in this episode, they didn't even shoot a single bullet.

Too unrealistic and light compared to the subject for me to really be interested in this series. It should be dark, cruel and gritty (like Zetman for example this season) and it's playful, vivid and over-the-top in the end, which is definitely a bad thing for a war series.


War has a comedic side to it when you look at it through the right lens (cf. Catch-22 and M*A*S*H). And Koko isn't a soldier in the trenches, she's a businesswomen first and foremost -- the subject material doesn't necessarily call for a dark and gritty atmosphere.

I love these guys, they're war nuts and ax crazy on a very short leash but I love them none the less!

All arms dealer thrive on the Ferengi Rule of Acquisition # 34: "War is good for business." but Koko has a natural talent for Rule of Acquisition # 22: "A wise man can hear profit in the wind."

Actually the series is betting on the antithesis. It is a deliberate action on making a young crazy girl the major arm dealer and have her act like drunk half the times but suddenly throwing a scary face to you.
Obviously Jacut just wanted a very serious realistic "Monster" type of show and his basically disappointed in his own expectation since the show doesn't fail at what it does because it doesn't want to be overly serious like that anyway. He also seems kind of a tight ass if his overly hooked on the idea that any anime that has to do with wars and guns should be heavy and tragic like.

Anyway the show basically rides on the shoulder of Koko and is good when the main character is so awesome that can carry the show. Is a fresh air because most anime seem to depend on anyone but the main most of the times. She's an absolute blast really.
I'm just loving it and is definitely from the top this season.

When she said we are going out and hold them up for you, i thought "no fucking way is this crazy bitch that generous" and a minute later she most definitely sold him out. I was just laughing my ass off.

That was pretty good, not a lot of action but the comedy made for a good laugh.
Next episode will have some more action and something fan-service oriented.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Whoa, I thought the setting for this episode is in some former Soviet Republic, then why the heck do the commanders sport american names like Maj. Polluck and Lt Col Grant?

And why aren't the escorts speak Russian?

Weapons trivia:

The patriot missile was once used by the Americans in 1991 during Dessert Storm and it is still used today, however it is useless without the following equipment: AN/MPQ53 radar to detect any incoming planes or missile, OE349 Antenna to calculate the bearing and to lock on to the target and EPP III Electric power plant to supply power to the radar, antenna and the missile launcher.

Another great episode. Koko's No, No, No, N0 part was so funny. Koko's friend rubbing on Jonah's cheek while with a gun to face I loled so hard.

Koko is such badass and strategist (especially the last one was XD)
And I thought that Myld or whatever her name is, 'cause it writes as Mildred in the subs, was a guy when I first saw the opening.

I agree, so far the show has been far too light hearted? Moe on the battlefield? Come off it. The only thing Jormungand is concerned with is providing gratuitous action scenes for a genre that has been starved of good shows, the story seems non-existant so far, the world in which it is based seems extremely odd. The cherry on the unbelievable cake was how the second group of dealers who killed their escorts were left alive....

War has a comedic side does it? Forgive me for disagreeing with you, if you've ever known war been affected by it in any way or form, you'd take that back, in fact why don't you waltz over to Sudan right now and tell them how funny it is that they're fighting over oil.

Another awesome episode; lol at Koko trolling at the team of 3 at the end, and that preview song just keeps getting stuck in my head XD

Also to the people complaining about the "light hearted" aspect of the show, they should also remember that Black Lagoon had some "dark" humor in it as well; granted i would say Jormungand is lighter so far of the two shows, but its only two episodes in; haste makes waste.

This show is turning out to be much better than I expected. Koko's too funny; love how she's always smiling even during unfavorable situations. This is pretty much Black Lagoon with more comedy.

The music never gets old nor the one during the previews. Its quite catchy. Im curious what the overall plot and antagonist will be as it cant just be go from locale to locale, though that would be fun. Favorite part was when Jonah laughed, caught me off guard and was pretty cool, and funny with the ensuing conversation
