It's almost over.
then time to marathon it this weekend.
it seems japan can't stay faithful to what originally made the anime for games or toys fun.
all toy anime but soon ruined by japan once they got another season or eventually be ruined by so many seasons
It just hit me how we are in the final episodes already. It feels like nothing has really happened. I can obviously see on paper that all the hyped up antagonists besides Tryhard Academy have been beaten, but it just doesn't register emotionally.
Remember when the end had a trump card?
That was awful.
S1 was fun. It had its own flaws, but had a lot of strengths as well. Try is a really mediocre kids tournament shounen. It has flaws, but doesn't have the strengths to make up for them like S1 did.
1st BF relied on quite a number gundam references which made it quite more enjoyable, well it was fanservice.
Try feels more streamlined with meh budget and more of an actual toy commercial.
Be honest you shitlords
The only reason you don't like season two as much is because it doesn't have Sei's mom.
I actually prefer S2. I hated Reiji, Sekai is more likable and his Gundam is [/spoiler]better
He was a stuck up little prince who thought far too highly of himself.
He was also amazing at everything for no reason.
At least Sekai has the excuse of being a trained martial artist to somewhat explain his gary stu powers.
Reiji got put into his place repeatedly and learned to respect the game, Sei's building and Gunpla in general. It was also made clear that their team wasn't good just because of Reiji, but because his great skill was backed up by by Sei's prodigious building. As for personality, he was considered obnoxious in the show too and people didn't suck his dick 24/7. Even his buttbuddy and BFF Sei thought he was a tough case to handle.
In contrast, Sekai is just a shitter that stomps everyone with a world class Gunpla and still gets all the credit. And unlike Reiji who had a varied fighting style, his style consists of 100% Build Knuckle. The assimilation thing is far worse than anything Reiji ever pulled. Reiji was simply good, he wasn't super special snowflake assimilation tier. Everything in the show revolves around Sekai, and pretty much the only characters that aren't on the Sekai dicksucking train are Minato and Adou. And of course there's the haremshit too.
So Fumina once again had to pull everyone's ass out of the fire and Yuuma's great innovation was "let's make these parts plug-and-play"?
Fucking hell do Sekai and Yuuma drag Fuumina down
mfw they make a horrible season 3
Reiji has several bad points of his character that the others will acknowledge, is fool hardly, and most im-fucking-portantly, has a fucking personality. Shit, he even has a little character arc with Aila that brings itself home at the end of the series, both figuratively and literally.
They din't even try with Sekai.
First season had good battles up until Build Knuckle became a thing. Second season had no good battles because build knuckle was everything in every battle with every character. Either shoot build knuckles or build knuckle build knuckles.
Team play amounted to nothing more than, "wear my gunpla."
It was constant 00 wank. Particle limit came out of nowhere and only served to create a convenient way to end battles instead of actually having someone win.
The power levels were stupidly off the charts.
They wasted all the good Gundam references which were the only thing that made the shortcomings of the first season tolerable.
I really want to believe that this season was subpar at best so they could save budget and spend it on making season 3 at or above GBF's tier. I really do. I refuse to believe they actually thought this mediocre, generic show of a sequel was comparble to the first. Maybe they stuck it full of waifus instead of intricate fight scenes to get you to stick with the show while saving budget for the 3rd part.
is she popular yet?
Because grill gupla. No, really, they want girls to gunpla too.
See, Seed didn't do great in gunpla. The Strike, Freedom, and Strike Freedom all do incredibly well, but everything else not so much. 00 has the same problem where only the Exia gunpla does super well and 00 does great while everything else is middling to bad.
Nothing sells kits like UC series. Unicorn basically printed money faster than they could make molds for kits.
G-Reco, while not the greatest in gunpla sales, does well across the board. Grunt suits sell, main suits sell, everything sells.
Build Fighters was the first series in a long time where the kits really fucking sold instead of character goods and DVDs.
Girls buy character goods and DVDs, boys buy gunpla, and they want to add the female purchasing habits to the gunpla market to make mad dosh. If girls bought Seed kits as much as they got DVDs and character merchandise we would have only gotten Seed series and it might have succeeded as a new main universe for instance(not that it would have been a good thing but you get the point.)
Fumina, Lady, and Shia exist to tell girls gunpla is love, gunpla is life.
>because it doesn't have Sei's mom.
W-What made you say that? It's not like I fap to those doujins everyday. I mean like once in a while is not everyday so I'm clearly not obsessed.
I don't get it
I still don't get why they're doing this, aside from Lady nothing is even UNDERSTANDING for both of them
Just stop already, I can already smell AZ trying to use life support to plague our lives some more. I'd be pretty pissed at Sunrise for producing more of this shit but not making a full S2 for BC.
>muh final form
what the actual fuck
I think he did win because of the hand. I think it was implied Adou couldn't bite down with his gunpla because of a sudden wrist pain giving Yuuma enough time to apply missiles.
There's no implication there. His chest mouth only absorbs beams and is completely vulnerable to solid ammo, which is why he made that expression once he realized his mistake.
Anyone know if any of the import sites do gunpla sales? i remember up till around AGE HLJ would have them a few times a year.
Just that i want to get back into building some but i used to just wait for a sale and then grab enough to tide me over till the next one.
From what I observed from /m/, Try lacks the following from S1
this is besides the standard complaints:
>MUH IDEAL SUBMISSIVE GUNOTA SHOTAS
>MUH GRUNTS / VARIETY OF GUNPLA
>MUH DREAM SEQUEL RUINED
I was constantly afraid it would've been hinted at she was supposed to be Kaila
Yes yes, we got your shitty insult joke the first time in the /m/ thread.
Please give Build Fighters a break.
Please give Build Fighters a fucking break.
Fucking Sunrise give Build Fighters a fucking break so that we can avoid this mess happening again.
It's like they are trying to give everyone Gundam fatigue again.
This was the first time they talked to each other about something other than Sekai.
The relationships in Try are so badly executed, I still don´t think these three kids should be friends or even be in the same team.
There are occasionally stuff like spring clearance and black friday sales, although they typically haven't been very good recently. Really just get what you want, Gunpla is cheap.
Reminder that they are happy with the gunpla sales for Try.
Now people are pretending they liked Buddy Complex cause the second season never hapened. Holy fuck the guy from MAHQ is actually right, 4chans revisionist history just to shitpost is documentable even. I was there lol. What a worthless board.
Hurr no way man its total 10/10 for season 1 and 1/10 for season 2 durr.
Seriously though why is /a even trying to shitpost this show when /m is perfectly capable. I'm guessing Fumina put it on /as radar or something.
Of course they are, it's been very solid overall, not Unicorn or 00 levels but as good as anything this decade. I'm surprised /a isn't trying to make up shit like it bombing in Gunpla sales though
What was the point of Adou's wrist injury?
What was the point of Shia suddenly having Fumina as a rival?
How did Sekai suddenly learn to use bits?
How did Junya's chopping technique help Sekai make a sword out of flames?
Why is it so important that Sei built the Build Burning when at this point, it's been torn apart internally and externally so much that they've practically rebuilt it from scratch?
Why did Kijima mention the Burst Lancer and how using it once was more than enough if it was never visibly used in the final battle?
Why does the writing team for this anime not know what a Chekhov's Gun is?
>>How did Junya's chopping technique help Sekai make a sword out of flames?
I thought it was because it's similar to the technique Wilfrid used. Of course, how he decided to make a sword a counter out of nowhere, is bullshit.
>I'm surprised /a isn't trying to make up shit like it bombing in Gunpla sales though
For the first couple months there was "Only the build burning is selling well, kits are flopping, trust me I sw a sales chart" crap going around, which is bullshit because pic related is the only time in recent memory Bandai has ever released anything close to a sales chart for Gunpla.
You can fault Try for a lot of things, but it has had some pretty great MS designs and excellent kits.
Gundam is INFAMOUS for wasting great character designs.
>What was the point of Adou's wrist injury?
To make it dramatic.
>What was the point of Shia suddenly having Fumina as a rival?
As soon as Lady told Fumina to beat Shia because reasons
>How did Sekai suddenly learn to use bits?
>How did Junya's chopping technique help Sekai make a sword out of flames?
Sekai was manifesting his burning boner for Junya's techniques
>Why is it so important that Sei built the Build Burning when at this point, it's been torn apart internally and externally so much that they've practically rebuilt it from scratch?
To let you know that Sekai was getting by with a world-class tier gundam in an under-19 regional enthusiasts school-club tourney
>Why did Kijima mention the Burst Lancer and how using it once was more than enough if it was never visibly used in the final battle?
>Why does the writing team for this anime not know what a Chekhov's Gun is?
They hate russians
Why does everyone claim Sekai is so skillful at gunpla when it's the Build Burning doing all the work?
Also, why did Sei build the Build Burning? Even if it's "similar to Reiji's fighting style", Reiji wasn't so incompetent as to only use hand-to-hand combat. He used beam rifles and more, which the BB is clearly not equipped with or for.
i want more china and aila doujins
awaiting fumina, shia, and mirai doujins
wouldn't mind doujins of
genderswapped yuuma/minato | /ss/ with the lilbro | club vice prez | trolling sugita for a laugh
Because his control skill is good. Hes got good reactions and is quick at the controls on top of fighting experience.
Also, BB has built in booster, shield, and emission abilities thanks to its plavsky manipulation. It doesn't need to add on equipment anymore. Or Sei just figured he could build it later and mod the bb to make it work.
>Shia and Fumina even say they want to do 1v1's
I bet Sei cringed when they first introduced "team battles". What a stupid fucking concept. It always just ended up being three 1v1's unless they completely outplay the opponent.
If time limits were a thing all along, why didn't Lucas Nemesis just run out the clock for every match since he was acknowledged as the strongest individual in the tournament? He should be able to win all the 1v1s.
>In the preview Mirai is wearing the same glasses that Lady and Mejin are wearing
He only actually fought 2 matches in the tournament towards the end. He was being held in reserves as a trump card. And he couldn't just run out the clock because of his teammates. If they were down and his opponents weren't then they'd win based on points.
You know what? I actually really enjoyed this episode.
Also, the Junya chop thing wasn't to teach Sekai the move. It was to hint to him about Transient having lance bits so sekai would think of ways to counter it and not be caught unaware.
As for the "how can he use funnels", hes not like Adou or shia and manually controlling them. He was just running them through the system on automatic.
And also again, Mirai is probably wearing the glasses in the preview because its the Meijin cup and she's in costume for work.
Fuck, that was amazing episode. On Try scale.
But jeez, are they really going to make a third season with S1 and S2 crew going at it? If so, I guess Try was just a quick cash grab while the actual team worked on season 3. They wouldn't imply S3 if it wasn't already being made right? And teasing Sei
and Reijijust like that has to imply they either appear in last episode or S3.
While nothing has been officially announced, its looking like it more and more. Several of Try's mechanical designers have been tweeting about working on a new project, the viewer ratings and gunpla sales are doing well (if not as outstanding as S1), and in show they keep talking about fighting at the open tournament.
No joke. A:Z is the shittiest mecha anime i watched since SEED Destiny aired.
Ratings aren't comparable because they have different timeslots. Apples and oranges.
On the Try scale it was pretty fucking spectacular.
Hoshino and Yuuma finally really getting into it. Being friends. Struggling hard. Their voice acting was incredible the entire way.
Fuck, even Shia managed to have good times. Adou was great as usual.
We all knew it was coming down to particle bullshit at some point, but the ride before that was a nice change of pace from how things have been for the show.
If we get another Build Fighters season it better not have Sekai again, he's so shit. I won't even bother watching, I couldn't take another season of his awful jigen haoh ryu shit and asspulls.
What an abomination
That was a horribly underwhelming and predictable battle. Especially disappointed in Shia. I thought she was going to do more than play nursemaid. They built her up earlier in the show for fucking nothing. Fumina doing winning beam was still pretty cool though. Yuuma...I don't know. He never looks cool in battle. He has a sniper unit but he only partially snipes and then tries to have a retarded shootout with no cover which then ends in melee every time. Andou seemed nerfed all of a sudden. Probably because he had to be dragged down to Yuuma's level. Wilfred and Sekai was nothing but screaming and punching/lancing wtih explosions.
Reminder. Silver hair loli is best girl. In fact, silver hair = best girl is law in Gundam Build series, evident since Aila was best girl too.
What a blast that ep was. Sweet jesus.
Wilfrid wrecking the signal was hilarious.
Now Sunrise, give us Sei, Aila and Reiji to tease S3 on the last Try episode and we're cool.
>S1 was nearly flawless Gundam fanwank
>Pretty much the only thing people disliked was the BUILD KNUCKLE abuse in the later half of the season
>S2 write BUILD KNUCKLE abuse in every big
