Kouichi Hayase is picked on at school, forced to run errands and give bullies money; but all that changes one day when a freak accident occurs that should have taken Kouichi’s life. Instead he discovers that he has new powers, he is stronger, and he has control over a giant robot named Linebarrel. To make things even better the beautiful, mysterious Emi comes into his life helping understand his new life.

I had a really hard time getting through “Linebarrels Of Iron”. A somewhat interesting story but lacking development gets muddled with slapstick comedy, bouncing boobs, and a fairly unlikeable lead character. There is very little machina battling action which is what I was wanting. And instead I was given a heavy dose of Kouichi, his immature love triangle between Emi & Risako, and his unbearable desire to be the hero without ever wanting to work for it.

I would rather watch Tenchi Muyo, Dragonaut (I know not robots but similar ideas & a love triangle), or Heroic Age they have stronger characters, better storylines, and more action. That is unless you are looking for a lighter more comical version of those the “Linebarrels Of Iron” should work out just fine.
