There's usually a thread on the days that a new episodes comes out. Personally, I don't think it's as interesting as season 1. At this point, GBF1 had that god tier Fellini fight. I can barely remember any of the try fights except for the Dom one in the first episode and maybe Red Warrior vs Lightning. The protagonists either absolutely destroy or get shit on. Nothing inbetween with the right amount of tension
Try is weaker than Fighters was.
Less gundam character cameos. All those cameos made Fighters a whimsical series full of nostalgic "OH SHIT!" frames.
The Fights are weaker. You care less about the opponents, and they're just not as interesting to watch. It always comes down to Sekai just spamming kick+punch. I was really hoping Sekai would start to run into some real opposition and have to up his game. Did Domon always end a fight with Shining Finger? Well, yes, that was his FINISHER move. But Sekai's FINISHER-tier moves are the only moves he fucking BRINGS to a fight.
I don't mind Lady Meijin, but it reeks of "THERE SHOULD BE A GIRL MASTER, TOO" because Sempai needed SOMEONE to look up to. And Sempai is really floundering, too, she barely even feels relevant even though she was the one who brought the team together. Come on, sempai, step it up.
Oh how quickly we forgive the past...
Surely they'll win.
Honestly, I prefer Build Burning's stuff compared to Build Knuckles, if only because Build Knuckle was a really lame finisher in a machine that should have a lot of cool gimmicks with the absorb shield and RG system being a buff that just got wasted on Build Knuckle.
Honestly, Build Burning isn't the weakest link of the team in a design point. Everyone is hyper specialized and at least close-combat can be cool in a Super Robot series like BF. Lightning is just a mediocre gundam who in addition to acting as a power saver for BB, really just has the trick of transforming into being really fast. Winning is too heavily invested into its gimmick and doesn't really do anything else.
The characters themselves aren't interestin either in comparison to the first cast. It's too large of a cast and they barely interact outside of their own group, so they barely develop-- I mean at this point in the series, Reiji had gotten used to accepting that people were just as, if not more badass than him, so he got over his arrogance. Sekai is more practical, but his respect for opponents kind of makes him flat.
>Sugita doesn't get a Renato bro tier fight against the best team
Except Build Knuckles wasn't 90% of the attacks done by Star Build Strike. It mainly used guns and shit, and only used Knuckles whenever the gimmick of the week was used by his opponent like Samurai Boy's lolno beam swords.
And more importantly, it took half the season to even introduce that piece of shit that is Build Knuckles. Build Burning was hamming it up John Cena 5 moves of doom style right from episode 1.
>tfw i want to start watching build fighters from the beginning
>people keep saying that i have to watch hundreds of episodes of older gundams first before i can enjoy build fighters
I think I'll pass this.
Build Fight was conceptualized as a show to introduce a new, younger audience to gundam and get them to buy models and toys. Anyone that would tell you to familiarize yourself with all the other shows in the franchise before watching this is full of shit.
It's not absolutely necessary but as someone who has seen every series and is familiar with a good chunk of the sidestory content the references and cameos make me enjoy it more.
The only thing you'd be missing is the care and attention to details S1 put into their nods to the old series. There are hidden cameos everywhere but it's not like you won't be able to watch GBF for it's own plot.
GBFT drops almost all of the Gundam cameos and replaces them with junk from other Sunrise shows.
I don't know why people hate Build Knuckle so much when it was only used about 5-8 times while TRY has been doing it almost every episode.
Guess what did it though every episode in a different series?
It was not a matter of Build Knuckle being a majority of the attacks, but pretty much all of the fights ended with Build Knuckle.
I can get where you're coming from with BB doing Build Knuckle BS from episode 1, but at the very least the thing was designed around the idea of CQC combat.
It overshadowed the particle discharge aspect of the SBS, which was the cooler gimmick.
Why does only Sekai like it?
Except it doesn't use CQC combat. It uses special attacks and only special attacks which are melee range.
This is like claiming you play street fighter but when it's show time all you do is spam shoryuken and shit. There's no jabs, no low kicks, no parries, not even jumps.
Ironically enough that's very fitting because Sekai is at that age and mindset where he's incapable of learning how to git gud and just enjoy button mashing.
This is the main fucking problem
This is why G Gundam and GBF ended up better.
Fuck, this is why the Destiny episode was the best fight that involved Burning.
Why the hell don't we have more fights where Sekai doesn't just mindlessly use special attacks.
Also, Sekai is a worse version of Domon like Shinn is a worse version of Kamille. But at least the latter makes sense because we know the writer is shit. The former doesn't because we know the writer can do better.
Build Knuckle was part of a much more interesting gimmick that they stopped developing. And even then, I don't dislike the SBS as much as BB, if only because Reiji loved to use his guns and was a great pilot on the whole where his movements and aerial maneuvers were concerned.
Sekai on the other hand, starts a fight with his special techniques, spams them throughout the fight, and then finishes with you guessed it, another special technique. Despite him practicing martial arts and having a melee specialist build, we don't actually get to see that. That's the real flaw of the Build Burning/Sekai. Wasted potential is the overarching theme with Build Fighters Try and while it seems to be getting better, I'm not going to get too hopeful before the Jigen vs Edgy Jigen matchup.
The only way that Fumina can beat Shia is now with plot weapon.
You know it's true, /a/
I really believe the 3v3 format is what hurts Try the most.
They should've done 2v2, but I'd imagine Bandai wants to shill an extra toy.
The Gouf and Master Gundam combo was great in the finale last season.
If season 3 does happen I want it to be the world tourney stage again with the old cast vs new cast in the tourney along with some new characters.
Seeing the new characters get blown the fuck out by Fellini, Renato brothers and Luang would be great.
I would definitely like to see Adou fight these people.
>I would definitely like to see Adou fight these people.
Adou would like to see Adou fight those people. He would get several new assholes torn into him, and he'd love every second of it.
>Their main competitive Gundam video game is 2 on 2. It would have been perfect
>competitive Gundam video game
Hilarious. I bet WoW is more balanced and I don't even know the state it's pvp is in.
Well they are hyping the main rivals. Of course they'll shit stomp anyone.
Lady's a fucking dick. She's the one forcing Fumina to scuffle with Shia, hell Minato was shitting bricks. She's a hell of a package.
Minato is best Builder.
Best doujin artist too
So what, Fumina is a Lady Meijin candidate?
>If season 3 does happen
There's a 50/50 chance it would happen. It's just that I can't bare to see it happen after Sunrise let this whole project get the short end of the stick.
S1 worked well since it was treated as a "Gundam" project. Now it lacks the budget. We get one sided stomps because they probably need to get the fights finished sooner. They're not having the leisure of getting a more stretched out and detailed fight.
>Better builder, better pilot, even looks better in her outfit
So we can all pretty much agree that Shia is Best Girl, right? Is there a reason we should be rooting for Fumina to win?
No do tell me. Does this show seem as polished the first season?
Tell me that doesn't involve budget constraints?
>Inb4 budget == monetary issues
It can be resource related(High profile animators used in a more high priority show).
>caring at all at that shitty 'triangle'
Lady is where its at
I'm not implying that at all. I'm just saying that if that fight fails to provide decent fight choreography between two melee units, then there's little hope for any more of Season 1 goodness outside of perhaps, the Gunpla Academy fight.
The problem is the more Sekai gains special attacks, the less time he has for normal shit. So by Gunpla Academy it's just going to be a turn based RPG where Sekai attacks, reaction faces, Wilfrid does something, rinse and repeat.
The finals will have Sekai throwing less than 20 punches total.
>So we can all pretty much agree that Shia is Best Girl, right?
She is for me.
She's still the best because she has most moe appeal. Shia is rather boring to me but not like Mirai or Fumina. She was introduced too late for me to care about her at this point, just like most of these opponents.
>but it reeks of "THERE SHOULD BE A GIRL MASTER, TOO" because Sempai needed SOMEONE to look up to.
It does kind of make sense. The Meijin isn't just a champion of sorts.
The job of the Meijin is to promote Gunpla. And with the expansion of Gunpla the job of the Meijin would require even more work.
So having two Meijins is a kind of a natural evolution really. That way they can both work on it independently of eachother. And if you are going to have two of them, having a female isn't odd. Especially if Lady is the real deal like she supposedly is.
she is the imouto that emerged to do battle with the gathered forces of onee-sans
The real question is if Lady is as good as Yuuki. Which I believe the majority including myself would say no, but it's always interesting to see what Sunrise dares to confirm.
>Because super robot is taboo in the world of real robot
>magic lasers that not only change form but function too instantaneously at the same time
>Build Burning not a super robot
>G-Portent / Transient / Build Knuckles / etc not super robot
Face it, Try is hypocritical garbage as far as the fights go now. People weren't shocked because he used a super robot. They were shocked because it looks like a toy for children and had gaudy ass ugly colors and a silly design.
A true blue super robot has rarely done so well in the tournaments; the crowd was shocked because it technically won a 3 on 1 fight despite being a ridiculous 70s/80s combiner, complete with an apparently in-universe opening title shot.
The only other one that I can remember being actually good is Chinan's Master Gundam, and that wasn't really a classic super either.
That's because the super robots that appear have even weaker gimmicks than the 'real robots'. Tell me how the flying fuck Trion is less realistic than G-Portent? Cause I sure as hell can design and engineer a combination transformable way easier than I can just making magic pixy dust do whatever the hell I want any time I want it to.
You can literally replace G-Portent and Gundam Transient and Build Burning with fucking GI Joe action figures and so long as you slap some sparkling pixy dust plastic and mold them properly onto Joe and friends you'll be just as strong. Hell maybe stronger.
The creativeness of Trion is not only in the concept, but in the execution. Since it's manual you can't just make a bird tiger and fish and hope they randomly change into a robot. You have to properly align their shit and all that, and design it mechanically.
What about the fucking pixy dust? Where is the thought process put in? Please don't tell me mere kids who play with toys are so advanced in GBF they understand technology from 3035+.
No, at the end of the day all it takes is the kid making up a shitty story and because MUH PLAVSKY PARTICLES the system says OH OKAY.
It's no fucking different than someone making a cheap copy of Demonbane and telling the system THIS IS DEMON BANE IT CAN-you get the point. There's no value in it, because it's an "I say so, so it is so" thing.
No, they just didn't want to flat out say the rest. Do you think Sunrise would let the audience go "wow is this kid actually a middle schooler and not a elementary schooler?" and fuck over sales?
After watching this episode I'm convinced that Minato can actually make a better protagonist than Sekai. He's also dumb and hot-blooded but in a good way, since he actually understand Gunpla thoroughly. He's just like Sei on steroid, I think.
He should have been a girl and replace Fumina.
I don't think anyone cares about Fumina at this point, she had nothing else going on aside that slutty outfit and now she's not even wearing it.
As pointed out by the Minato himself all that shit only works if the builder is world-class. If you tried that 'skating on beams' shit with a lousier model you'd probably just jam your foot through the beam and get it sliced off.
Then just make him the one from Tokyo.
Actually making him a girl would add an extra dimension to his rivalry with Yuuma.
And also making more interesting shipping, since GBF Try is lacking in OTPs compared to its predecessor.
But for the greater good, he's better to serve as the main protagonist, I think.
Yes, except by the term world class, it has nothing to do with the know how of technology, but simply the vague notion of having better work done on your gunpla.
That's absolute bullshit. It means in theory, if Sei made a ball, that ball could fuck up Demonbane if Demonbane was made by Yuuma. And it could win not through using ball cannon lasers, but by summoning infinite copies of itself in Demonbane fashion. The ball that is.
Do you not see how fucking retarded that is? The vessel/gunpla itself has no correlation with the abilities. It's all in how bullshit you wanna be and how good at crafting you are. If we put it in gaming terms it's like those MMORPGs where you can swap gear looks so a warrior looks like he's a mage.
Do you think that shit should fly in a competitive battle arena? Should it be okay for Bearguy to no sell Moonlight Butterfly just because MUH QUALITY?
>Then just make him the one from Tokyo.
They can't do that, his entire nature is based on being from Osaka. At least according to retarded anime laws.
Impossibru, what is this?
I used to think Minato was an annoying cunt.
Now he's my favorite character of the show. More bro than everyone in the cast and anyone who says no that Tryon 3 just simply has no soul.
I'm in the massive minority but I despise Shia.
>I don't want to hurt your Gunpla abloo bloo!
>Proceeds to completely obliterate it
If you cared so much you'd win nicely even if your opponent told you to fuck up. She's nothing a but a hypocritical smug little cunt.
Even worse, her only reasons to be in the show are to create another girl to aim for Sekai dick and give Fumina a "rival" when it's obvious to anyone with any brain matter that Fumina is NOTHING to Shia's super duper hax gunpla building skills. Just with existing she indirectly makes everything about Fumina even more insufferable than it already is.
Are they seriously expecting me to buy what Lady said that Fumina is a Lady Kawaguchi candidate? For fucks sake.
If Fumina really beats Shia it'll be the biggest asspull in the history of the franchise, even worse than Kira surviving a mobile suit exploding on him.
As point of fact, a Gyan custom already no-selled the Moonlight Butterfly back in GBF1.
And this shit was all already covered in GBF1 too where Sei realized that what was keeping him from being a world-class builder was thinking that his Gunpla had to be plausible in the setting he built it from (in this case the CE). And then he built a combination WoL/Moonlight Butterfly/Warp Gate system into the backpack.
Inari, Kon Kon, Koi Iroha. All the human characters speak some form of Kansai-ben.
If you noticed, she only attacked the joints on the VGK. Not her fault the thing explodes when you do that.
Oh boy, GBF Try can be much better had they make Minato a girl who just trying to make his rival/crush Yuuma to notice her.
Bonus point if they have mutual tsundere relationship like Sakurako & Himawari.
I never said it wasn't covered. I just said it was even more bullshit now than it was before. Sei actually build his Star Build Strike somewhat realistically. It had an absorb/burst mechanic which is what allowed Build Knuckle to shine.
Build Burning has none of that. It just MAGICALLY generates more plavsky particles. By BREAKING ITSELF.
And the Gyan didn't actually no sell the Moonlight Butterfly. He clearly interrupts it before it takes effect, so that's more of a set up where the cast time was too long, no different than someone just sniping you when you are charging up your pew pew lazer.
no if the closest thing we have is the impulse, and even then it is EXTREAMLY modified. the BB is more like it's own unique suit unlike most of the Suits in GBFT. and I suspect it's true for the other one.
wait, what am i missing here?
aren't they looking at shia?
when meijin said "your favorite has appeared"
and lady's "wonder if shell be my successor"
wasn't that referring to shia?
And why are this bunch of kids playing on just Nats? Almost all the plavsky bullshit they pull completely overshadows the ones pulled on S1 during worlds.
I can't imagine how massive the power-creep got in worlds if just nats are this hax.
It's probably at least around this level.
>yfw Gundam Arale is the winner
Then your only quibble here is needing an apparent power source? Because the actual functions of what Sei transforms the absorbed particles are things that have no correlation with the Gundam itself.
As for the Build Burning, it's been pointed out that Sekai is channeling Shounen Willpower Spirit into the plavsky particles to fuel an RG system-like effect. It's as bullshit as anything else plavsky particles does in the first place.
Also it purged armour, not broke itself, because exposed clear parts appear to have a correlation with allowing plavsky particles to move more clearly. That I have no idea why.
I want to lick that ass.
No, I'm saying shit shouldn't just magically happen because you say so. Beams shouldn't bend just because you painted it better, nor should someone be able to punch phoenixes just because they sparkle more.
It has to be logical. Using shonen willpower as an excuse is basically admitting you give no fucks about gunpla building in the first place and just wanna plug in super powers attached to random ass robots.
>browsing pixiv for shia's R-18
>some faggot gave her tits
I dunno if I would go as far as pixy bullshit for the G-Portent. It looks to have a GN Field, which in it's later developments could be focused for more than just an orb shield could technically be emitted just at the feet to let it walk on a beam. Considering that build quality = raw output, it would not be unreasonable to assume that given the properties of her field and it's potential raw output, it could be possible to skate along the beam as she did. That's my guess.
The usual early rip didn't happen and HS should have uploaded it almost 2 hours ago. What the hell is going on?
And the episodes on Youtube aren't available here, fucking hell
