As a grown-up animation fan, I found this one a huge disappointment. The writing was on the wall right from the very beginning when Tony Stark first arrives in Japan, and is astonished to find that his second in command in Japan is *gasp* a woman - and such a beautiful one at that! So of course, he immediately tells her so. I mean, my God! Tony Stark is supposed to be a sophisticated man of the world - not some oafish buffoon trapped in the 1950s!

Sadly, the sexual harassment suit that Stark-san so richly deserves at this point never materialises. But anyway, the tone has been pretty well set: at least so far depth of character is concerned.

On the plus side, the art and animation are superb, and if you happen to be an 8 to 12 year old boy, I think you'll get an enormous amount of enjoyment from watching this series. Hey, some folks as old as 15 might even get a laugh or two. On that basis I felt that I could stomach giving this thing three stars. Every show has its own audience, right? Even if I personally don't happen to be a part of that audience.

Still... I can't help but feel a certain sadness here at the thought of what might've been. Japanese animation is normally SO much smarter, more multi-layered and adult than its western competition. This show just... isn't.

If anything quite the reverse.

Theo.

Free to stream on Crackle, so why buy it? Very overpriced compared to 1.99 for full hour shows too. I did not get my money's worth on this here.

I just finished watching the X-Men anime series and really hated that one. There was no action at all and it was just basically them standing around talking for 19 mins and a minute of them actually fighting something.

Iron Man series does it right. There plenty of action and guess what when they talking they are fighting at the same time. Who knew they could do that. Hint, Hint, X-Men.

I like how all of Iron Man enemies also have armor like him. This makes for interesting fights as they all have different powers and armor like him. The thing is, Iron Man has only a few ways to win his fights. Mostly him just shooting at his enemies with his hand cannons or chest cannon. Iron Man fighting style isn't much as he is always getting hit and throw around quite a bit. It's a really good thing that he has armor on, huh. This is a Japanese anime, so he does know some moves, I now see him know how to do kicks, which he never did before in western shows.

I love the story line and characters. They do fit nicely in this 12 shows series. I do recommend this as a buy.

-----Spoiler Alert-----

Towards the end, I kind of didn't like how they killed off every single character at the end. It didn't matter if they were a good guy or bad guy because they all died. In every last show, it seemed like the writers wrote in one main character would die in that show. I didn't really see the point to doing this. Sure some of the main people could die and that would have a point, but all of them? No that's just careless. Then, at the very end, the only one left was Iron Man himself and the two reporters. Also, the two reporters didn't even know where Iron Man himself was, so mostly they separated and pretty much means they are dead to him anyways.

The story line is not very appealing like the usual Iron Man series. I liked the Iron Man Extremis 6 part short series much better and that's the direction i would like Iron man to go further. In this Anime series the first episode starts with Tony Stark trying to retire as the iron man, but getting forced back in to game as some villain steals Iron man tech the most advanced one yet, that was being unveiled in japan and piloted by someone other than tony stark. So, it's basically old iron man tech pitted against the new stolen one. Doesn't seem to build the momemtum to watch the rest of series. I am going to pass. I am a real fan of Anime, but this one did not appeal to me with the story line. Giving it 2 starts for trying an anime version of Ironman.

This anime is almost a throwback to the semi-animated Marvel Iron Man TV series of the 1960's.

The semblance ends there. The story line in this anime is more simplistic than the Pokemon series. The artists seem to have taken a very few visuals out of the Iron Man movies and recycled them over and over.

The elements of Tony Stark's personality that made the transition to this anime are his ego and ability to chase women co-workers over the course of the series. This Tony Stark doesn't innovate or negotiate.

Put the money you would have spent on this series towards the Avengers or next Iron Man movie. Waiting can be fullness.
