Now THIS is what a War anime should be like.
Reviewed after finishing both seasons.
For anyone who've seen the movie on arms dealing 'Lord of War' and have enjoyed it, you have an obligation to watch this anime. For anyone else who's tired of typical shounen junk but still want the fun and excitement of it all, you also have an obligation to watch this anime. If you're a gun nut, it goes without saying.
Characters are original and non-generic, mostly very skilled in their own specialized field- none of that expert-at-everything bullshit you see nowadays. You will not get any whiny losers here, thank god for that. Now, while conflict is almost always won with intelligence, there are unfortunately certain parts of the series where the enemy simply misses too many bullets (storm-trooper syndrome) to be realistic, but the plot and character development makes up for it.
When it gets down to it, the overall concept surrounding this anime is the question of 'How far are you willing to go for your goals?' And in this anime's case, the answer is very very far. It's been an absolute pleasure watching Koko and her team descend into the greyest of moralities. Rather similar to Griffith in some ways.
If you're like me and love stories that challenges these big question, watch Jormungand.
