PLOT for Ep.11 titled "Human Debris": "The Isaribi and Hammerhead encounter a space pirate group known as the "Brewers", with Takaki being critically injured during the skirmish. Meanwhile, McGillis and Gaelio return to Earth and assess the situation within Gjallarhorn. " (via Wiki)
#watched #gundamironbloodedorphans ep11 - end of another good ep, with deepened emotive scripting, and I am truly liking this #anime more and more with each ep ... Ep12 is gonna see a huge space fight between Mechas and Barbatos #Gundam = one week more to wait!!! #animewatch #inototaku ... And that ending track by MISIA "Orphans No Namida" so rocks my boat! Actual MV on both http://initotaku.blogspot.sg and http://tunes-talk.blogspot.sg BTW :)
This episode also saw the introduction of "ASW-G-11 Gundam Gusion" - another Gundam-Frame mobile suit produced during the Calamity War, now in the possession of the pirate group Brewers, and as well "ASW-G-66 Gundam Kimaris" - one of the pilots whom has a distinct connection to "Akihiro" (Leader of the "Human Debris"), and what transpired after the space battle in the medical ward, still bring tears brimming in my eyes as I type this post … Good stuff, man … good stuff...
Another aspect of Iron Blooded Orphans, is the enviro design - both in architecture and background designs, with obvious effort in providing a well grounded foundation for the stories to unfold. It is one thing to have coolass mecha, but the surrounding environment needs to bolster the concept, and truly, MSG: IBO has it in spades!
And while gundam.wikia.com has indicated that "Mechanical designs" are by Naohiro Washio, Kanetake Ebikawa, Ippei Gyōbu, Kenji Teraoka and Tamotsu Shinohara … while the character designs are done by Yu Ito and Chiba Michinori, no other mentions of enviro design(ers) tho. Nevertheless, "they" have my utmost KUDOS!
