VIDEO & AUDIO:
"Linebarrels of Iron: Volume 1" features pretty solid animation. The artistic backgrounds are nicely lighted and shaded. Character designs are also well done and feature the character designs with a lot of shading and featuring the character in a variety of emotions. Also, the series features a lot of mecha. Each pilot on both sides with their own machina and abilities definitely brings in this other element to the series. There is a lot of action featured in "Linebarrels of Iron" and a lot of destruction. GONZO did a spectacular job with the animation and a series that I hope receives the Blu-ray treatment.
Audio is in English 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound and Japanese Stereo.Read more ›
Released across two discs, Linebarrels of Iron comes packaged as a pair of thin packs within an outer cardboard slipcase and consists of episodes 1-12. The show comes in at a total runtime of 300 minutes and wears an appropriate TV MA (mature, 17+) rating due to animated violence, a little bit of rough language, female topless nudity, and implied sexual encounters.
Language options are standard sub & dub with both an English dub and original Japanese soundtrack (either in Dolby 5.1 Digital Surround) & the choice of English subtitled if so inclined to turn them on.
Extras include a commentary by the English cast & staff, Promotional Video, Japanese TV Spots, Music Video: Proud, textless opening and closing songs, and a host of fresh Funimation trailers on the second disc.Read more ›
I was really surprised by this series.. It's good all the way around. the animation, voice acting, and soundtrack are all great.I'm not a fan of the animation style where the characters have lines drawn on their cheeks just below their eyes, but I can get used to it. The story is pretty good. It's a little different from your typical Mech series like Gundam. It's more mature. There is a bit of language, a little nudity, and some seriously suggestive stuff. I'm not not a big fan of Mech animes in general, but this series has plenty of other elements to keep things well rounded. It's kind of similar to Gundam Seed Destiny and Full Metal Panic. I think that fans of those shows will enjoy Linebarrels of Iron.
