Tekkadan has now become a direct affiliate of Teiwaz after procuring a new trade agreement with Arbrau. With its newfound funds and prestige, Tekkadan finds both its list of allies and enemies growing. Meanwhile, the flames of the Gjallarhorn power struggle continue to rage in full force. As a part of her efforts to make Mars financially independent from Earth, Kudelia Aina Bernstein founds the Admoss Company and enlists Tekkadan as her business partner.

The stakes are getting higher as the Tekkadan family continues to grow. Will Orga, Mikazuki, and the rest of the Tekkadan faction be able to keep up, or will Kudelia's dream of Martian independence die out?

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans is the story of a show that tries to achieve so much in a fairly long time, and somehow manages to fall face flat on earth in everyway imaginable.

Second Season starts give or take a few years from when the first season ended. And it carries on the same problems the first season had.

Story itself largely follows McGillis' machinations as he, and later on, Tekkadan, as they look to change the world and make a better one for themselves. In itself this plotline is not particularly bad. The show however, multiple times, takes too long to come to any point, and regularly read more

So we've finally reached the end of the ride, and what a ride it has been. IBO disappointed many fans early on due to the fact that (1) it isn't crossbone, (2) it is somewhat different from all the other gundam series and (3) it has no "waifu" as some of my mates have pointed out.
That being said, what IBO is full of is tear jerking moments, a few twists and turns which depending on your experience you may be able to predict, and lots and lots of deaths. As usual the ops, eds and osts are very good, and unlike clannad's ones read more

Quick Thoughts:
Season 2 felt like a downgrade in just about every area outside of production quality.

It continues some time after Tekkadan successfully escorting Kudelia and co. to the election. They've gained a ton of clout, and Orga decides its not enough; He wants complete dominance over Mars and wants to get there through the "shortest route possible" (foreshadowing that is recalled multiple times in this season). Multiple loosely-related subplots are introduced as well, but they're so half-baked that the end result is a clustered, unfocused story. The pacing was fine until the last several episodes, where they decided it was time to start killing-off read more

This is not going to be a popular opinion but I'm not the biggest Mecha fan here particularly Gundam, however this series truly hints as to why that is. I am a realist and give honest, non-biased review on the matter taking into account other similar shows to this one.

First let's start with the GOOD: From what I'm aware, This series is said to be a stand-alone in the Gundam universe, meaning no other previous Gundam series or manga ties into this at all. This gives the developers complete freedom to create something new and different. With that they created some fantastic mecha designs, particularly read more
