I finished Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans the other day. I really, really enjoyed it. Like I said when I talked about it upthread, it stands apart from other Gundam series in a lot of ways - notably the cast being child soldiers rather than a mix of adults and teens who end up fighting together out of desperation. Mikazuki, the Gundam pilot is particularly effected by his brutal history, and is only learning how to interact with people as the show progresses. Even by the end of series 1 he's still not quite human, and all throughout the show I got the feeling that when he did something like comfort one of the female characters, it was more because he saw someone else do it rather than he had the impulse himself.
There's also a lack of energy weapons in the show. Which isn't a huge thing, but it gives the show a very specific asthethic and gives up Gundam's iconic beam sabres.
But the show also does a lot of typical Gundam things. The story is about the relationship between a corrupt Earth and a rebellious colony, in this case Mars instead of orbiting habitats. There's a third party antagonist who wears a mask and has his own agenda. And a lot of people die.
While the story does come to a fairly satisfying conclusion, there's a lot of the plot surrounding the main characters to resolve, but thankfully a second series has been announced for later this year. Looking forward to it.
