Why didn't Minato just start in the combined Tryon 3 and have 2 teammates in addition to removing the weakness of the combining sequence?
Pride. Aesthetics. Taste.
Also, I suspect that three units transforming creates one with three times the particle capacity.... although, by that point, one might as well just field an MA.
I like how Gaogaigar is protected by a barrier of Mountain Dew Baja Blast when it transforms.
No, fuck you, Captcha. Those old dentures are creepy.
Because you get charged up with particles at thd start of the match in Try. By launching as three seperate gunpla and then combining you get 3 gunpla worth of particles for tryon 3 instead of just one. Same logic for why team try didn't just launch with winnings parts pre-equipped in the first half of the series. Its to give them extra particles on top of their initial-charge.
Basically. He thought combiners were cool, so he built a combining robot. Any disadvantages it would have offered didn't matter to Minato, because the only advantage that counts is "it's cool".
Friendly reminder that the superior show would have been better writing, because Minato, Gyanko and Simon under the same writers would have been just as shit as Yuu, Fumina and Sekai.
Remember that episode where he actually tried to learn about gunpla and found out how hard it was? You know how it brought them close as he gained respect for making suits? Fuck that Sekai can get amazing by just a loli talking to him for a bit
I'll say it again.
>Implying reiji knew dick about gundam
He learned how to snapfit a model (plus basics like lining and topcoating) and gained respect for Sei as a modeler.
He didn't learn anything about gundam and remained pretty much entirely ignorant of everything but the model kits all the way through the series.
He also helped in the upgrading of the team's suits, although admittedly he was only doing basic stuff since he wasn't particularly skilled and when he was hurt fighting at the training camp literally the first thing he did upon waking up was run out to go repair his gunpla by himself. He needed help, but the idea was there and frankly it's more than Reiji really did. Try sucks for a lot of reasons, but they did at least attempt to show Reiji as someone who wanted to learn about gunpla.
From original Build Fighters, weren't the only major character in the World Tournament who weren't huge Gundam nerds Nils, Aila, and Reiji?
The Super Renato Bros might not have been into Gundam, although they seemed to have some knowledge of canon like the idea of swapping out their GM head with the Blue Destiny. Dallara gave up baseball where his inhuman skill could've gotten him world fame and way more money, so he's gotta be huge into Gundam. Or at least Dunbine.
But it's just a modified ZZ. It would still be three units combined if it started in the MS mode.
It could still decombine if it started in MS mode.
The protection feature is still a weakness since it consumes particles. This also doesn't address the fact that they are starting down 2 MS for no reason.
Rule of cool stock answer always works I guess.
It would still be a combination of three machines if it started in the combined mode.
But the system would read it as one machine that splits into three, not three machines that combine into one. Each of its parts was built to be able to act as a separate unit and be able to fight on its own on par with other gunpla. When combined they have the power of three gunpla in one due to how the system works (If they launched fully combined they would just count as one gunpla).
I wonder how many times this has been posted as an answer to a /m/-related question.
What he should've done was give both teammates their own combiners and combine the 3 strongest parts when the situation calls for it.
Still more than Sekai ever learned.
BF at least gets points for having Reiji learn a damn thing and be in the wrong occasionally.
In Try if you weren't Sekai you were automatically at fault
Simon for all intents and purposes IS Sekai. He's a martial artist with no plamo skills or real knowledge of Gundam. He's just got a preexisting unit instead of a new toy to promote and a slightly... MORE cliché motivation, actually.
>removing the weakness of the combining sequence?
he still would have lost even without weakness.
