Editorial Reviews

Jonah is a child soldier and the newest bodyguard for Koko, an international arms dealer with an entourage of hired guns. The cold-blooded kid hates Koko’s line of work, but following her into the darkest corners of the black market might be the only way he can find those responsible for his family’s slaughter. Besides, his employer isn’t like most merchants of death. She uses guile and cutthroat tactics to keep her clients armed to the teeth—all while cultivating her own warped plan for the future of world peace. With the CIA desperate for her capture, assassins eager to collect her head, and the potential for every contract to end in ultra-violence, Koko and her comrades in arms bring the boom to every corner of the world.

    Love this show and so glad it's getting a US release I wasn't sure if it was. No spoilers here
    I heard someone once call it a "Political Black Lagoon" if you've seen Black Lagoon I think that's pretty dead on saying.
    Just a story of Mercenary/Arms Dealer and there Dealing in the world. Great show with good action but mostly the political side of there Dealing which creates a great story so no real disappointment there yet enough action to keep things exciting.

    Personally for me the only 2 downsides were the animation style on some characters such as Koko, not a big deal at all but it did take me a few episodes to get used to it. The thick white eyelashes and thick white eye brows look like double eye brows at times and Koko came off as more of a guy then a girl at first Most wont even notice but few them seem kinda off at times.

    Second when I look back on it I kinda feel like the story went so Far and grabbed you yet... went nowhere with it. Its begging for a second season. You'll understand that once you watch it. Even if it never does get another season it's still a great show. This is really the one true downside for me.

    All in all I would give it a
    10/10 if based off Anime similar to it in its same catagory.
    7/10 when compared to All the Anime I've watched.

    Think a mix of Black Lagoon/Noir/Phantom Requiem and you'll have Jormungand,the series is a great mixed of action/humor/drama/angst and guns. The story focuses mainly on a group of mercs who work for a young female arms dealer named Koko a brilliant yet seemingly somewhat crazed seller of weapons who has her own hidden ideals and agendas. Also you have a young mostly stoic child soldier Jonah who himself is somewhat of a contradiction unto himself,while he abhors weapons he knows he himself has used the weapons for his and others agendas and that conundrum makes him question his own choices and where it has lead him.

    The series shows us these two seemingly opposite characters working together and along the way form an unusual family between each other and the rest of Koko's entourage. The series animation is good though some of the character designs can seem a little unusual at times, from the weird eyebrows to the shark like teeth some characters have,the soundtrack is topnotch and fits the scenes in the series nicely.

    So if you're a fan of Black Lagoon or series like it then this one is well worth taking a look at.

    Black Lagoon became the anime action king in 2006 with its non-stop thrills, blood and fearless take on unfettered organised crime. The Second Barrage was even better, with content so extreme it's difficult to watch.

    I am happy to proclaim a new champion on the hill: Jormungand. While Black Lagoon's crew are tied together by fear and mutual exploitation, Jormungand's operation is slick, well-oiled and cemented on a solid foundation of respect and co-operation. Most of Koko's crew are ex-army elites (except for Jonah). Velmet is one of the most formidable and terrifying femme fatales of the past decade in anime. Her story arc spans several episodes and is almost resolved at the end of the series. Almost.

    Character development is complete and never dull. The majority of expositions are crisp and to the point. Villains are a riot to watch and never overstay their welcome. The man-girl slaughterhouse Orchestra and the threesome of havoc are two cases in point. Speaking of which, so are the battle scenes. They're never slow or drawn-out. It's like the budget for Hellsing Ultimate was crammed into 4-minute bursts of sheer action win. The scenes with the CIA and KoKo's underhanded dealings in the high-stakes weapons industry are a fun way to look at the death merchant industry without trivialising the scene too much.

    One of the best [newer] animes out there.

    I highly recommend this along with Black Lagoon for a perfect action-packed viewing experience.

    Great story, great characters, overall decent animation - five star product all the way around.

    The BD is nice too for its audio. No noticeable banding or upconversion pixelation. Definitely worth it - support Koko.

    Just finished both Season after buying them all. This is a new Anime Classic! KOKO! is one of my new top favorite badass ladies in anime. The Dub cast and japanese cast make this show really sparkle voice wise. At the time of this review the seasons are 30$ a piece which is a bargain. The extra features are much better on this release then most funimation releases you don't get on extras stream. I highly recommend buyin and supporting this release its worth the price for your collection. The anime has already been reviewed so go read that and see what you think but its a well crafted series done right so enjoy:)

    When Jormungand first came to my attention, it reminded me very much of Black Lagoon. Bright visuals, gun-toting protagonists, and bullets flying in all directions. However, once I began to dig into the show, I found it to be so much more than it appeared at first glance. The show still reminds me of Black Lagoon, but it has a flavor and theme all its own that keeps it standing strong as its own distinct anime.

    The show focuses on a young, eccentric arms dealer named Koko Hekmatyar and her merry crew of mercenaries sworn to protect her. With the exception of her driver, all of them have a military past and as a result, they're deadly as all hell. The most recent addition to Koko's group is a child soldier named Jonah, and he in many ways acts as the main character. Much of the show deals with Jonah adapting to life with Koko and her bodyguards, and a decent amount of comedy ensues with them trying their best to give Jonah an otherwise normal childhood (each team member does their best of offering him a formal education, with varying success).

    While I was initially drawn to the show for its action, it has great characters and they go through some genuine development. Koko and her team display a great sense of camaraderie, and you really do feel like they're all friends. They may be arms dealers, but Koko and her crew have a strict sense of honor and never engage in behavior that I'd consider "bad"; they kill, but they only ever kill other mercenaries, most of whom attack them first. In real life, most arms dealers aren't what you'd consider good people, but I never once saw Koko or her underlings as bad people; on the contrary, they almost seem like superheroes.
