Boy, am I glad I found the time to finish this show.
Spoiler for Big Long Rant:
Verdict? Is Linebarrels of Iron any good? Kinda, sorta. Is it worth watching? Maybe, maybe not depending on what you're looking for. Will I recommend it to anyone, ever? Maybe, if you're really bored and need something to fill some spare time.

The ending was expected after all the "thou shall be reborn" magic throughout the series.

The show just irritated the hell outta me. It was like staying up for a couple days straight, then your pile of crap coworker sits next to you and starts eating a bag of chips irritation. I guess it's ok to kill time with, but nothing more to me at least...

It's quite funny how loads of people are posting here about the last episode, and haven't said anything at all about the series before it.

Spoiler for Episode 24 (END):


Final thoughts: I haven't nothing against this show. It's decent mecha drama with a good solid fun cast. Still a huge shame it couldn't capture the dark nature of the manga, though it's another telling of the story so i'm fine with that. Overall i'd give it a 8/10.

You really make me sick~

This show has been a trainwreck since around episode 10... anyway the ending episodes were absolutely ludicrous!
Bad guys transforms into good guys, the good guys are immortal, not to mention Emi surviving a blade which cut her in half, almost.
This show is a pile of bullshit on par with Dragonaut, good only for fanservice: but at that point hentai is way better!

@Shiroth
Dude not evreybody has the time to write about evrey single episode of a series, especially about trainwreck such as Linebarrel.

I suggest this series only for the nice fanservice, for the rest it's pure bullshit.

1) Never said they did.

2) I was joking around.

Eh, if you see it as a light mecha show, then I don't mind one bit. Doesn't QUITE have the same gravitas as Bokurano (a show that stirred me up quite a bit. The ending was so bittersweet, it was one of the few mecha shows I ever shed a tear for). But this show did have a lot of lovable characters especially Shizuna/Izuna for me.

It was the Koichi and Emi of another dimension. As for the Mech? Yet another Gundam reference. There are so many in this show.

You know what, this series just didn't get the praise which it deserves mainly because many decided to drop out before getting into the actual story (just thinking that Kouichi will remain a jerk forever...well he kinda did until the end since the subtle changes are really subtle, but that isn't something that would put me off so easily...).

ep 24 + final thoughts
Spoiler:

Now excuse me while I go make a blog post about how much of a gem people have been missing out on

It's the reference of "Flower of Iron", the base material of Linebarrel.

I just realized something, I have never been happy with ANY anime made by Gonzo. Endings in both the couple pairing and conclusion always go differently of how I would want. I guess I should give up, but I keep watching their anime in the hopes that one day what i want comes trough.

Wait... who the hell were you expecting Kouichi to get paired up with?

Sorry but it was quite clear from the first episode that it was gonna be KouEmi.
