Picked up a DVD of Otaku no Video, and the soundtracks for Blood: The Last Vampire (the original movie) and Gun x Sword.

I  was out today and I found a couple, but I decided to pick up just one: the Tusken Raider.

Have you watched Iron-Blooded Orphans?

Nope.  Never heard of it, actually.

I've seen some episodes, one of the last times I was in the States when it was on their Cartoon Network's Toonami block. As a Gundam series, it seemed alright.

It's a Gundam series, and it is amazing. It's about a group of child soldiers who are able to branch out on their own. It doesn't hold back on the violence either.

Of all the Gundams I've watched, Iron-Blooded Orphans is definitely the most brutal with the violence.  Sure its one thing to watch Wing Zero vaporize a hundred Leos with a buster rifle blast, its another thing entirely watching a guy get crushed in a mobile suit cockpit by a giant mace.

It's the most recent of the Gundam series.  AFAIK the second season is still airing in Japan.

What makes it brutal, is that they don't use energy weapons, and most of the combat is close range. I think the most brutal death is when Mikazuki steps on the cockpit of a mobile suit, and the pilot's blood splashes out.

I love how Gjallarhorn's forces are all pomp and ceremony. Everything is a pose, with rules and etiquette to combat, while Tekkadan is "there's the enemy, kill them".

I believe the second season is coming to the US soon. The series ended months ago in Japan. Though there are rumors of a third season, or even a movie.
