Iron Man - Surprisingly good?
Was anyone else here pleasantly surprised by the Iron Man anime?
I know it is a western IP, but the story is actually quite good IMO. I like the way they have taken a western super hero and crossed it with the Japanese mecha genre. The animation is good quality and the fight sequences - while a little over the top (but hey, this IS anime) - are enjoyable. I like the way Tony Stark is portrayed as flawed but with good intentions (like being a womanising play boy but genuinely interested in helping people and trying to gain the trust and admiration of the Japanese people), and how the Iron Man is not overly powered and must use technology and ingenuity to defeat enemies.
I find the reporter really annoying though.
