Huh. Well, alrighty then!
After mulling it over for a bit, I'm struck by what we haven't seen in IBO just yet. To date we have not seen:
- Beam Sabers
- Beam Rifles
- Newtypes or their equivalent (there are the whiskers, but they're not the same thing IMO since pretty much anyone can get them if the survive the surgery)
- Skilled enemy who wears a stupid goddamn mask
Also, the characters, at least in Tekkadan, do a pretty good job of standing out from the usual Gundam tropes. Mika in particular is interesting; he's clearly considerate of others' needs and feelings, but at the same time he has absolutely no problem with killing people in cold blood. This is to be expected of child soldiers, but it's handled really well in his case IMO.
Overall, I am really, really digging this so far. It's become my must watch show of the season.
