I really should be studying for my Japanese test tomorrow but instead I chosed to watch Kurogane no Linebarrel instead. I actually screened the first episode when I was at Chara Hobby so today I watched episode 2.
I've been interested in this show for a while after reading the summary over the summer.  I found out this was gonna be one of Kacky's (Kakihara Tetsuya) new roles and decided to give it a try despite the fact that I'm not really into these very shounen style art-big busty women and mecha type anime. But I'm glad I checked this out because I like the story so far.  And if the manga art is like what I see in the ED animation I really like the manga art...specifically the color art.  Kouichi looks so cute.

The story is about Hayase Kouichi who's always been the weak and easy to pick on gopher at school.  Until now, his friend Yajima has protected him from the bullies.  But one day a girl and a robot fall from the sky on top of him and kill him but he becomes revived and he gains the power of Geass Linebarrel.  Linebarrel is this cool mecha in which Kouichi enjoys the thrill of being able to handle and actually become the hero he knows he's always been meant to be.  Because of Linebarrel, Kouichi becomes a factor and thus has superhuman powers.  Because of Linebarrel and his new found power, Kouichi proclaims himself "seigi no mikata" (on the side of justice) but well the boy is not without flaw he is quite arrogant.  In battle, he doesn't really think about his surroundings and causes great damage.  He also becomes very angry whenever someone underestimates him.

This arrogance and cockiness is actually what I like about Kouichi.  He's totally not the typical hero..in fact with his personality you'd think he acts more like the enemy.  Whenever Kouichi does his evil laugh, I can't help but laugh, too...not sure if I'm laughing with him or at him tho. :p
^o^ After the 2nd episode, I'm really interested in who this girl who fell from the sky is and there seems to be more to Kouichi than meets the eye. I wanna know who Kouichi really is.  And I'm curious about this one pic from the ED animation with what seems to be (not completely sure) like a younger version of the girl and Kouichi...dou iu koto darou???  I might actually pick up the manga just to find out more.

So I'll be sticking with this anime.
Btw, this anime has quite a few seiyuu favorites.. Here is the cast list for anyone interested.

I was looking up the new fall animes online and saw that Kacky was in this one, but from the cover art I was like oh no, not more mecha.. ;A; But it IS Kacky and you say it's good, so I'll give it a try.

I'm not so sure about the fall lineup (Earl and fairy.. ;A; Shoujo-y waste of Midorikawa and Sugita ;A;) But Kurozuka looks pretty interesting. If you're into samurai chopping people up and Miyano Mamoru as the main character oAo/ I'm all about that :3

I actually watched the first episode of this subbed at AX this year while I was home. The end of the first episode had a nice twist, but yeah, I was like "more mecha?" for Kacky... not sure if I'll watch it, but lol, I just realized that I'm on the website XD::: scroll down a bit to the pic with the big crowd of people from July, and I'm the Feldt cosplayer in yellow... front and center... o_O;;

If you wish to continue watching the anime, hold off reading the manga until you do finish the anime.. Because if you started w/ the manga, you might be very disappointed with the anime. The manga's story is way better than the anime..touching breasts to summon linebarrel LOL
