Kurogane no Linebarrel, GONZO’s most recent anime release, is about a real loser who has been bullied till the point of delusion, getting his hands on the ultimate mecha power via typical anime luck. The guy, Kouichi (this name is solely reserved for weak losers, check other anime), is an angsty, emotional, probably otaku, jealous and weak high schooler who is a bid to escape from reality started to imagine himself as some hero of justice whose super powers will arrive at some point in his life.
The guy is so unlikeable you wish death upon him by the fifth minute of the show. And happily, he gets it in the form of a giant mecha descending at meteor speed right onto him, crushing the bastard like a fly. Too bad anime magic happens and he is reborn as an invincible robo warrior who can pilot a teleporting giant double-bladed mecha, alongside a busty Mamiko-voiced mascot. It’s like white trailer trash striking 30 million dollar lottery - they don’t deserve it.
And it seems Mr Delusion has no qualms about using his new-found abilities for the one thing losers love best - to be a hero, via battle, screaming and lots of self praise. Even busty mascot got pissed off at him.
The show is quite alright, with a marked improvement in CG over the Draglolnaut, and character designs similar to Scryed. But more importantly, if you were to get super strength, a busty naked babe and a giant mecha, what would you do with them?
I personally would probably be like Raoh from the new Hokutou no Ken show, and build a giant empire where I am King Emperor God and all the world belongs to me, while engaging in lots of exciting mecha battles. Actually, that was a pointless question because I’m sure everyone would do the same.
Anyway, this season isn’t too bad, there are gems like Clannad and a few other exciting shows such as Kyashan Sin.
