Gundam Build Fighters :

I just wonder how they're going to top the Star Build Strike, it seems more like an endgame gundam than one for this part of the show.

The greatest threat and OP suit is the heavily decked out Qubeley, whose funnels are too quick to the point for the contenders to do anything.

And Star Build Strike's wings are more like Wings Of Light from V2 Gundam.
Same as usual.... Wing it.
Lol Yeah going to need extreme long range to handle that unless u can generate a really strong force field or EM Ps on demand to disable them.
 
Gunpla is amazing!
Well it seems like Powergate requires build up and also has a time limit, so its not like they can just use it at any time they want like Trans Am.

So has Gundam Build Fighter grown it's own fun beard or is it better than it sounds?

[up]I'd say it was fun from day one. I mean, it improves, but Growing the Beard is usually reserved for when a bad show turns good.

Yeah this is more of a surprise hit, no one expected this show to be so fun and filled with this many shout outs and cameos.

Moderate Haruhiist
Agreed. Very much a pleasant surprise, after the disaster that was AGE.
Yeah I don't think it ever started it out bad but it has a hit its stride while still being fun. Still shows like this always hit their stride for the major tournament.
 
Be interesting to see who is teamed with who for the 3 v 3
 
btw was it just me or did that part where Reiji stumbles out of the back room exhausted with Sei slumped in the corner with the biggest "I just had sex" smile plastered on his face remind anyone of just that?

You are not the only one who got that thought. I was thinking the same thing.

You did not just make me think that. sad (Edited. Think I sounded offended but it was more of a "Why mental image. WHY?! [lol])

Anyway, I thought the star build had a cape during that part but it turns into wings of light instead. (which is also ok)

Same as usual.... Wing it.
That's one way to put it.

This hat doesn't fit!
God dang, the Star Build Strike Gundam is going to be powerful. Wonder how everyone else will fare.

Also, we're getting a Heavyarms next episode apparently piloted by a Trowa Barton lookalike. On top of that, Sei and Reiji capped off the preview narration with Heero Yuy's catchphrase.

Episode 10:

  • I was expecting Sei to say that he looked good in a tux. Laughed when he said he didn't.[lol]
  • Classic Reiji, ditching Sei to go on a world food tour. Did last night mean anything to you, you jerk!? After all, that Gunpla's amazing!tongue
  • Ricardo Felini, picking up chicks, getting drunk, and breaking pedestals since 2013.tongue[lol]
  • Wow. Aila likes to eat. And she's as emotional as the other guy. Wait, the other guy this time is Reiji.tongue Their reaction faces being in tune with the fireworks was epic.
  • The SBS Gundam's pretty cool. NOW THEY STAND A CHANCE!
  • Even though he changed, they recognized Yuuki very easily. Maybe it's the hair.
  • Welp, Reiji's gonna go crazy because the Star Build's gonna possess him next episode.tongue

I find the fact that everyone immediately recognizes Char even with glasses to be wayyy more funny than it should be.
"No, the Singularity will not happen. Computation is hard." -Happy Ent
Honestly, the fact he kept slicking up his hair before fights makes it so easy. He basically has a new uniform and shades as the only changes its not that hard to tell.

Man it will be real pain to fight Aila, her gunpla looks like a beast in melee combat but if no can get close then u never will be able to learn anything useful.
 
I kept hearing Ayase when Aila has dialogue, 'tis glorious.

Some fantastic mecha action this episode, yum~

Pronounced YAK-you-luss
New episode!

Spoilers: show continues to be amazing.

Alright here's my mini summary.

This show seems to love subverting a lot of common tropes, like the secret identity trope, and I love this show for it.

I'm honestly surprised how the ship teasing is being handled. Also, more Moe Aila.

The Star Build Strike is powerful but that doesn't mean it auto wins all it's fights. This episode shows that real well.

Recardo gets ganged up by 6 other Fighters because all 6 of them have had Girlfriends stolen by him. That's a funny and good reason to hold a grudge.

Character of the week goes to un-named Custom Epiyon.

Attack on Titan Zaku.

And we get even more teasing on who or what Reiji is. The PPSE president seems to know.
I think I know why I like Gunpla Builders so much. Besides the animation and the cool Suits, I really how they have 'unbroken' action sequences: In most Gundam shows, it's too much jaw-jaw, not enough war.

The fact that generally, none of the protagonists can die or be seriously inconvenienced, gives rise to plot armour - Their machine *can't* be damaged, because it would animating 'em a chore later. But here, Mobile Suits can be blown up left and right without any issues.

While I'm still holding out hope for a gritty, militaristic Gundam series where life is cheap and the death toll is high - And the protagonists are hard-bitten ace pilots instead of philosopher-pacifists - Build Fighters has the action down pat. It's incredibly pretty to look at!

[up][up] As long as it's a gunpla it's ok. surprised

My god. ALL the fighters? On a field that's basically a planet?

And then it gets better from there. [awesome]

Fellini vs his G Fs' Ex. With...wait, did the Ashtaron pilot just shouted brother? [lol]

Edit: And aila doesn't seem to be using funnels. So it's bits from gundam age?
