Synopsis

Tony Stark, CEO of a large weapons manufacturer, physicist, engineer, and brilliant inventor, is wounded by shrapnel from one of his own weapons. While held captive by terrorists, he develops the Iron Man Suit and escapes. From that day on, he vows not to waste his second chance at life and to change the world for the better. For that purpose, he comes to Japan.

In Lab 23 in Japan, great strides have been taken to develop, and build, a unique power station which does not run on fossil fuels, the Arc Station. Stark intends to join this project, and, for that, he is ready to announce his retirement as Iron Man. At the same time, he will also announce the Mass-produced Iron Men, to which he will pass on his duties. However, during the ceremonies, Stark is suddenly attacked by combat mecha belonging to an organization known as Zodiac.

First off, I will edit this review if necessary as the episodes go along, so stay tuned! I quite like Iron Man, and hope this will turn out well. I've dropped the score from a 9 to an 8.

Story: The story seems promising, with plenty of room for good development if done well. However, it seems to revolve around the premise where people keep wanting to steal Tony Stark's technologies, as with the live-action movies of Iron Man 1 & 2. Something different would have been better, but I guess there's always people who want that kind of technology. *shrugs* As of episode 2 read more

This is my first-ever review on an anime... but this anime is sooo bad and disappointing that I really need to say something about it...

Let's see... when I first heard of an Iron Man anime, I was REALLY excited to say the least - especially with the first Iron Man movie (which totally blows my mind)
Then I started watching it... all 12 episodes and let me tell you this, if someone ever hands you this anime and tell you to watch it... DON'T!!!...

I will only review on the story itself... not the mediocre art, not the badass music nor the terrible character... read more

Aside from the obvious connection between Marvel's ever growing ego and the development of the anime industry, iron man is a mediocre and pretty pointless show. Evidently the show suffers from having a mixture of both Western and Japanese cultures due to how the show is set in Japan yet Tony Stark could speak fluent Japanese without any decent explanation.

To many, this show is a great disappointment as it demonstrates a clear and hopeless contrast between the animated trailer promoting the anime and the anime itself. The animation itself feels moderately satisfying especially scenes such as the suiting up of the armor however, it does read more

I'm honestly shocked that this series is any good at all. I don't like Iron man much, I've never read the comics, and I don't find that adapting american comics, with their repetitive nature, works very well. And yet, this first episode provided great pacing, a story which, although somewhat typical, doesn't play out in too predictable a manner. The pacing is particularly important to this anime, because it compensates for the cliche parts of the stories by telling them very, very quickly. The art was great. The art style, which is apparently a mix of USA and Japanese animation styles, was off-putting at first, read more
