Mom, I had this terrible nightmare that Reiji never came back, so I became depressed and put the gunpla I built for him in our trophy and then forgot about it. Then, years later, a complete retard who doesn't even know what Gundam is found it and was convinced by some kind of underage turboslut to pilot it, and everyone was sucking his dick comparing him to Reiji even though he never did anything to demonstrate he had half the skills, talent, or effort.
Then they started playing in the u-19 nationals, and this idiot was getting carried by my gunpla the whole time. Every opponent in the nationals either deserved to win more than his team or were more skilled and experienced, but he rolled through them effortlessly anyway. The power scaling was all over the place and everyone was an edgy tryhard. In the end they fought a pale shadow of my final battle ending when they turned into spirit animals and blew up Earth.
The worst part is he took my masterpiece, Build Burning Gundam, and altered it with the minimum effort put in to turn it into a toyetic monstrosity, and then did it again after the tournament, ripping off my concept and creating some hideous samurai bootleg and slapping his name on it. And I couldn't say anything the entire time, I had to just watch it on TV as he dragged everything I stood for through the dirt, because his teammate was China's brother.
But at least it was all just a dream.
But Sei, Reiji didn't know shit about gunpla and Stomped many people with much more experience in gundam series lore and gunpla fights.
Hush, Sei, no tears, only glory now.
Reiji didn't know about Gundam because he came from space. Sekai on the other hand has no excuse. Society revolves around Gundam in GBF.
And Reiji lost to Yuuki in episode 2 and then underwent serious training, fighting Fellini until his hands were bruised. Sekai wiggles the gendum around a little and is suddenly unstoppable until a few fights in the nationals.
we don't know where sekai is from. How does someone not know what the biggest sport in the world is? Gundam series in BF is like common knowledge to everyone.
Sekai being from Space would also make sense
Based Shingyo Slut could not quite save everything, but still made shit more enjoyable.
>Society revolves around Gundam in GBF
You're making a bigger deal out of it than it is. We've been shown several people who were completely ignorant of gundam and others who just thought of it as "that kids game".
Its popular enough to be around the same level as a competitive sport but remember that we are seeing the BF world through the eyes of people into gunpla battle with a large focus of the show on gunpla battle related things.
I'd say most of the characters know about gundam anime, But I'd say more were just Gunpla dorks.
No Sei, you can't pass it off as a dream. You gave up hope, left the model behind, and then even gave him permission to keep using it and sent him spare parts. You made your bed, now lie in it.
Saved for being BFT in a nutshell.
Sekai wiggles it around to know the movement limitation and trained himself to be one with the gundam even though the controller is using two hand instead of all part of his body.
>Sekai was training in the mountains away from civilization for an unspecified amount of time.
I don't see how a completely unrelated field of expertise translates to being good at Gundam
Sekai's a sparking special snowflake, he ain't gotta explain shit.
I still don't get why Fumina and Yuuma didn't show G Gundam to Sekai. It is so obvious it hurts - he could watch anime about melee kung fu robots and improve his gunpla fighting style from it. And imagine his reaction when he sees Domon.
But instead they watched opening of ZZ for some reason.
A lot of people knew stuff but hid their power levels for some reason. You'd think this board would love that, since they're always like "Can't let these normies know I'm a NERD!"
Ah, I see, I'd never seen this one before. I'm used to the ones like this, where it's more just broken English with at most a number for a word.
Still, I'll concede the point.
>You'd think this board would love that, since they're always like "Can't let these normies know I'm a NERD!"
I don't know where the fuck you've been posting but /m/ doesn't hide their power level for shit.
Wait, if Kamiki Burning can output an attack as large and as phoenix-y as the one we saw, does that mean Shia is able to replicate not just the plavsky hax crystal, but also the plavsky "core" that saved Sekai twice?
Reiji actually lost to Yuki, and Fellini. He spent so much time training with the latter that his wrists hurt afterwards. He also only used weapons that the Build Strike had; he made use the beam rifles and sabers quite a bit. Granted the build knuckle was kinda gay but it is nowhere near that retarded flying phoenix chicken how are you bullshit that Sekai does.
Sekai just jumped into gunpla battle and was invincible. Hell, he only "lost" to Minato so Yuma could have his 1v1 showdown.
Season 1 was an ode to Gundam, Try fighters took a giant shit on the franchise.
Is it just me or is BFT more like a esports tournament rather than a drama series.
They just fight the next team and move on.
Tons of plothooks that lead nowhere or just to the end of that episode.
Stolen parts, sabotage, Lucas, rivalry, the fallen martial artist, etc...
all just stomped out in the last minute.
Lack of permission aside, I wonder what Sei would think of Super Fumina.
You realize Tryon 3 is part of Minato's win right? Basically he lost 3 times, twice to Minato, once to SD-R. However only the first time he lost to Minato counts as a real loss due to the nature of 3v3.
Allan, I had this terrible nightmare where you left me for Gunpla Academy to start a U19 team with your nephew, your niece, and some other guy. I had to work with a chick who acted exactly like me and made a SD rehash of my own gunpla and we ended up watching a U19 team with some guy who randomly found one of Iori Sei's gunpla and was being effortlessly carried by it throughout the tournament. I couldn't do anything, just watch as they ruthlessly overpowered other teams who had more experience and an actual love for gunpla.
In the middle of the dream, one of your team members was kicking their asses and talking like a big shot so I was going to kick his ass with my gunpla and you pulled the plug on the machine because you didn't want me to. Then I had to deal with Kousaka's brother's PTSD by myself by dragging him to a backwater hobby shop.
Worst of all, I snubbed genuinely creative gunpla builds in favor of boring Zeta recolors built by Kousaka's brother not once, but twice.
But at least it was all just a dream.
Not even that the Lightning Zeta had the decency to be. It was just a remodeled Zeta with more tacked on binders.
Yuuma is the most boring and least creative drone ever.
He's that guy who works hard day and night as a train conductor, and when he gets home, with finally some time to relax and have fun, he works on a perfectly accurate model replica of the trains and railroads at his work.
as for Sekai being OP at the start for no good reason -- he really did get carried by Sei's Gunpla, he wouldn't have gotten ANYWHERE without it
but as the show goes on, he becomes actually experienced, it's implied that he's training fucking constantly (and then he becomes retarded OP as a result -- now he's pretty much using Build Burning to its fullest and it's obviously fucking broken on every level and PHOENIX, but even if you gave him a different machine (or one just slapped together), he'd still wreck shit at this point)
either way, Try is still fun, but overall quite a bit worse and visibly rushed out the door
all three of our protags are kind of shitty and are poorly characterized (Yuuma is a shitter, Sekai is a less interesting Reiji, and Minato...)
3v3 isn't a particularly great format, either
hopefully S3 fixes shit, but my hope is diminished
why does Try fucking exacerbate S1's issues instead of doing something, anything to try to fix them
this is easily the most disappointing thing thing of all
you don't pilot fucking Burning Gundam and not watch G Gundam
It's definitely a major sport but not THE defining sport of the world.
It's on the level of tennis or something -- still relatively large, materials research funding involved, focused on small groups/individuals.
