AD 2019: the giant mecha known as LINEBARREL falls to Earth, grabbing the attention of the anti-machina organization JUDA. Before JUDA can arrive on the scene, an unfortunate accident occurs: LINEBARREL crashes into Kouichi Hayase, a weak and frail pushover of a boy. Waking up underneath a beautiful naked woman, Kouichi discovers that he now possesses great power and can summon LINEBARREL for his own purposes. All Kouichi has wanted is to become a hero of justice and hold his own, instead his childhood friends Yajima and Risako fighting his battles for him – and now he finally has that chance. With LINEBARREL's power, Kouichi becomes cocky and aggressive, lashing out at those he cares about most; and as a 'hero of justice', Kouichi must find his new place in the world and protect himself from two organizations who want their hands on LINEBARREL.

Many people have strong prejudice against mecha genre. It is supposedly shallow, cliche, boring and pointless. And despite how much it pains to me say it (since I actually like mecha genre)  - Kurogane no Linebarrel is the prime example of how pathetic mecha anime can get. Story - 4/10 Have you ever wondered how it would feel to get hit in the face with random, falling, giant robot? Well the main... read more

Linebarrels of Iron is certainly a strange series to be reviewing. It’s an old fashioned looking show, mixed with a main character that wouldn’t be wrongly placed working alongside Lelouch Lamperiouge in Code Geass.
