Review: ‘Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans’ Season 2: Episode 4

The Trigger For Promotion

The battle started in the previous episode wraps up quick but not before the new team from Gjallahorn and Tekkadan get into a wrestling match in an effort to see who gets to capture the pirate boss and claim victory. It’d be comical if not for the fact characters could die any moment.

From their, the rest of the episode deals with the battle’s aftermath. The Teiwaz group is pleased with Tekkadan’s accomplishments and gives them a big reward. Their are some who aren’t so pleased with this decision though. The team may be getting too big, too fast which will only result in them getting more enemies who want their hot streak to end.

Hash asks Mika to talk to Orga about letting him become a mobile suit pilot. At this point it’s hard to tell if he isn’t still resentful towards Mika or not and if actually allowing into a robot won’t result in Mash becoming an enemy later in the season. Probably would still be a good idea to keep an eye on him for now.

Also, the team decides to pay a visit to the businessman who sold out Kudelia. Let’s just say negotiations break down in the worst way possible. Despite their success, both Mika and Orga still haven’t lost their edge.

The series is off to a great streak of episodes this season but it still feels like Tekkadan is on too much of a hot streak. Given the tough road other characters have had in previous Gundam series, happy endings don’t come until the show reaches its finale. With all the success the group has had so far, their is a good chance the entire Tekkadan organization may face dark times in the future.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2 is streaming on Daisuki.
