lets fix this
Or maybe you should just go to sleep forever.
Shoe only reveals its secrets to those that speak its ancient language.
Shh! You're boring Takaki to death.
Maybe. It'll be hilarious if he does.
Poor thing, what about Biscuit? Did they capture him?
Yeah, atra took a lot worse though
This shouldn't be a surprise after last week. Was already a huge death flag. She strayed from the plan, so her only option at this point is to forfeit her life, as they would certainly look to come after her from now on.
I'm sure they won't make it come to that though, and instead will be put in some situation where she holds people off to let Kudelia escape.
>Resorting to loli torture just to raise shock value over not having mecha fights
Is this a good sign that Okada will never write for mecha or action shows after this?
Of course he is, this is the guy that try to strangle a man over a misunderstanding
You're referring to the writer who made Menma a complete plot device rather than an actual character in Anohana. There is literally no expectation that she is going to write strong, independent girls for mains, especially if they're lolis.
>Atra says she is Kudelia
>Ganja soldier beat the shit out of her
Don't they have a photo of Kudelia? Wasn't she supposed to be the leader of Martian uprising? Am I supposed to believe she never gave a public speech or made a video?
Exactly. There's absolutely no reason why everybody shouldn't know how kudelia looks like by now. In fact the workers rebelling mistook atra for kudelia too. They're rebelling in her nam and they don't even know how their savior kudelia looks like.
They've been instructed to capture/kill her though right? Why would gala horn not give its troops accurate information?
Not only that but kudelia is clearly a puppet that nobliss wants to martyr for the revolution. Surely shes only worth anything as a martyr in the first place if she's a recognisable figure. Not even the people who she supposedly meant tone helping know what she looks like
The writing in this show is fucking awful
I don't believe for one second that the show has been in planning since that 00 movie
I fucking love this dude.
Hes done nothing except elude that he funded this massive uprising purely so he can have the rights to fuck the symbol of this. Sometimes he gets bored of waiting for it and hires people to murder her for shits and giggles.
The way every time he has a call with anyone he does it while waving his dick at them will never fair to make me laugh my ass off.
Its a known fact that information travels extremely slowly in this universe, So what if she is popular the only ones that would of sent and sort of complex information including a picture would of been Mars horn, which was trying to have her marytered on mars for its own ends. The same branch that had its leader and trouble maker splattered inside a graze. The only other person who had that info is Char, who needs her for his own ends.
The slavs only knew her by name also, despite seeing her as a literal joan de arc
>I don't believe for one second that the show has been in planning since that 00 movie
When it comes to Toy centric anime they start with the toys and build the story around it, I doubt they were thinking of writing at that point.
No the point was that through Menma's death, the family of friends could finally confront and reconcile with each other and have the perfect happy ending. The problem was it was fucking retarded to pull that Captain Planet tier shit in a daytime drama show.
Well it could have been worse for them, so will they kill Fumitan next week?
>We want you to capture this girl, her name is Kudelia
>Okay what does she look like?
>um okay do you have a picture or a video
>she looks like a girl
>Can we get a brief description like hair colour, age, height
>she looks like a human female
Now I see why these people were able to run from earth to mars so well
The episode is up in the usual sites
So her name was actually really Fumitan?
Just 25 episodes, and they haven't announced a second series yet. There's no reason to either, almost everything merchandise related, including BDs and DVDs, are selling like shit, it'd be a major flop if they get a 2nd season that no one is going to watch
Feels like the show's finally starting to get it's shit together. The pacing's still slow, but at least things are happening now. Things that actually kinda matter in the long term instead of random, pointless skirmishes with nothing factions.
I'm actually kind of excited for the next episode.
To be fair, it could be one. IIRC, 00 wasn't initially announced to be 50 back in 2007.
Plamo's selling well. Well, the Graze and it's variants are selling really well because it's top-tier custom fodder. and the Barbie's doing fine too. But everything else really isn't doing well
>the Graze and it's variants are selling really well
That's only because almost all the plamo for this are either just variants of one MS, like the Graze. If you only have like 5 kits for your show, of course they're all going to sell well.
X was good though.
Pretty good episode, was better directed than usual too.
>Mika is Kamina's secret brother
HERE WE FUCKING GO!
Called it last week.
>was better directed than usual too.
Too bad animators can't draw for shit.
>Atra: "You kind of look like that"
>Biscuit: "Don't worry, Atra, it is called QUALITY. It happens often"
Its all them letters and shit hes been learning.
Teaching him that people have thoughts inside of their head instead of just all the blood and mush he sees when he shoots them.
>character's standing normally
How did they manage to botch this so hard
They've already been set up as each other's only real family from the beginning of a series focusing heavily on the value of the family you build for yourself. Adding a blood relation would do absolutely nothing.
OH, WOW! WOW! WOW!
This is so fucking stupid I can't believe they are really doing it!
Seriously, nobody got a photo of Kudelia?
I mean theres 9 episodes right?
Whats even the end game for the series? Whats even the point of half the cast like the choco-man loli?
I just don't see where we are even going anymore, like is the series going to end with Kudelia arriving at earth and giving a speech about not exploiting colonies and Mars for the rich to the rich? Is the entire point of the series that Gallahorn are dicks? I would assume the other militaries are just as corrupt and shitty.
>No, that's our cook. She is more valuable than Kudelia.
>They arrive on earth
>Kudelia has apparently learnt something cause orphans
>This makes everyone love her
>Fight the bad guys who don't want that
>Mika get taken out back by Orga and shot cause he strangled the farmers daughter in the barn cause her hair was purdy
It is amazing how much of a roller-coaster this isn't
The lack of a clear direction beyond the basic transport plot is why I was wondering if they were planning another 25 episodes. This really feels like a long and boring set-up to a more actiony second half.
Yeah Atra and Mika are both 15, so she is not really a loli
>It is that time of the week again: Kudelia is too dumb to even breathe
When will Kudelia finally learn anything?
We are nearing the final stretch and the only person to sort of develop has been Guts. Everyone else is acting exactly the same and getting told they are doing the same thing wrong. Even when they slightly touched on Mika's development 2 episodes ago he has gone back to being an autistic weirdo who sniffs boots like a dog
I mean I understand its a commercial.
But if thats the case why do they keep shoving this shit about a poor people revolution and a peace summit or congress speech or whatever the fuck reason Kudelia is going to Earth since I don't even remember at this point.
Shouldn't we be having way more BUY THESE GUNPLA moments then we are having?
Like 9 episodes ago I expected them to have fought to Earth and have the peace conference go horribly horribly wrong at this point. Then transition into a big poor people in space vs rich faggots on earth war as per the norm for Gundam. I suppose everythings just going to end with them arriving at Earth and all the various Earth factions and shit are all just red herrings that I should ignore and the only conflict is between them and Gallahorn.
There are spots where it really fucking shines, but most of it does look pretty average yeah. I guess even Studio 1 can only do so much whilst working on what's left on Unicorn and starting on Origin on the same time.
>all the various Earth factions and shit are all just red herrings that I should ignore
If the whole plot has been lets get to a place and then going there was utterly pointless then this really is going to be an awful show
>Hey, she is not Kudelia, aniki.
>Okay, let her go home. Sorry, kids.
Oh come on. As soon as they realized she was the wrong girl and had no value to them, they should have put a bullet in her head.
>IBO is much, much better
Only if your IQ is in the single digit.
They can always recycle Unicorn plot where when Barbatos is equipped with parts from 3 Calamity War gundams it reveals the location of ancient Gjallarhorn constitution about granting freedom once earth is fixed and masked man is the vessel for Gjallarhorn's will who is also a clone of its founder.
6-7ep 1hr OVA.
>Well yea that was the obvious outcome.
But they didn't do shit.
They let the most precious girl in the Solar System in a room with one of her bodyguards. She could smash the window with her head and run away from them.
Makes you wonder if these guys can even get her head with a bullet.
>Lets openly kill the chick proposing peace talks in front of a bunch of witnesses
God damn you may be dumber than Kudelia.
Theres a reason why they keep trying to have her captured directly or killed without them being directly responsible.
I'm not following this show closely, but every new episode thread seems to have less and less Kudelia hair. Is the show it declining in quality?
I was hoping they would kill Atra, just to give the story a push, maybe guilty-trip Kudelia.
The best scenario would have been Kudelia killing herself because of the grief.
Imagine how far the story would go just in the next two episodes.
>G-Reco too rushed
>IBO too slow
Sunrise what happened to you?
>>Lets openly kill the chick proposing peace talks in front of a bunch of witnesses
All the witness are bad guys and don't want peace talk to happen.
They should have realized by then that the cook was not Kudelia. She is useless to them.
Only a retard like Biscuit's brother could think to fool Gaja with her.
He should have told the soldiers, let them kill the useless girl and go look for the real Kudelia.
This was fuckin retarded. How could you possibly mistake one for another, even without a picture (which is stupid to begin with). Even a vague description would suffice, and besides, why would Kudelia be with Biscuit during brotherly meeting?
There are no words
Biscut was gay growing up, its why his brother shipped him off to Mars where all the fags live
His brother knew that he would never hang out with a girl if not for work.
I mean most of UC felt properly paced except for F91 which never got its proper series and X which had its second half canceled even though it was pretty fucking good.
Look anon you and I grew up in an easy life but not Biscuts cool ass brother, dude grew up in the space hood.
Do you ahve any idea how many slum sluts he has fucked over the years? Dude can tell at a glance.
>it was pretty fucking good
MSG, Zeta, and ZZ were too long. That's despite the original being canceled. ZZ dicked around a lot.
WHERE THE FUCK DID THEY GET BRANDED TEKKADAN PHONES?
Isn't Kudelia supposed to be royalty? How do these guys not even know what she looks like?
>G-Reco looked like an incredibly mediocre 00s show.
I really need to stop taking /a/'s opinion seriously.
>MSG, Zeta, and ZZ were too long.
Even if that's true that doesn't mean X wasn't too short. X was robbed by not having its second half even if they made it work somehow.
>Poor slum factory workers don't have smart phones or TV's.
Unlike Tomino Gundam X felt like they put a lot effort into the planning what they wanted to tell. Which is probably why the Estard arc sucks so much, chances are they rushed its production when they learned about the cancellation to plan the rest properly.
>These helmets suck ass, can't see shit no wonder we keep dying in droves to these meddling kids
>One day I'm gonna have a gold mask
>That blinks for me
>Then when I shoot at fat kids standing still 50 feet away with my gun I won't miss them
>I mean most of UC felt properly paced
>0079 had MotW shit and a painfully rushed finale
>Zeta had fillershit, Four coming back again and the Rosamarie arc
>ZZ dicked around in the first half and had a painfully rushed finale
Ironically enough the only Gundam that had decent pacing was Turn A mainly because it was slow as fuck.
The ending was a truly a miracle work.
I always forget about Turn A when I want to talk about Gundam but it's probably the best overall.
You can tell the show had a tight budget with all the sliding but Studio 1 found a way. It's pretty consistent.
Anon I don't know what fancy ass inventory checkers you have at your work, but ours don't have television.
Mind you this just questions how no one saw a picture of her via newspapers or whatever media outlet they found about her from in the first place.
The assassin hired to kill Kudelia, who may or may not know what she looks like.
You can't introduce a character an episode before and then expect it to be a really big moment that people care when they turn bad. Biscuit shouting about how he is with Tekkadan now means fuck all as he never said he wasn't or had a problem with it. It also doesn't help when Biscuit's brother was so one dimensional
Didn't say they skimped out on the fight scenes mate. They're the reason I stuck around with it till the end. They're fucking gorgeous.
You're fucking deluding yourself if it all looked good though. It had some moments of QUALITY.
Gundam has always been a toy commercial mate. In fact, almost all TV anime are glorified ads.
I know you're new, but get used to it. We believe in you!
Aren't the people working on the new Lupin using the same digital tecniques for the old school look G-Reco had?
Can someone explain the relation between budget, time, and quality in animation? There are so many QUALITY frames in this show that I have to ask if the animators are just lazy/don't have enough time/are not getting paid enough.
>Implying he won't take a bullet for Biscut in the next episode revealing he had a locket with Kudelias picture all along
He was just pretending to be retarded so he could spend more time with his brother.
Can pay more experienced animators and staff.
Bad planning means less time for quality control.
>if the animators are just lazy/don't have enough time/are not getting paid enough
Overworked slaves paid less than the guy flipping burgers at the local fast food.
Budget is largely irrelevant, G-Reco and OPM had average budgets and looked as good as they did because the staff gave a shit and knew how to handle it.
Time is a huge factor but you have to fuck up BIG TIME if you miss your deadline.
>It had some moments
Every show has some moments. For the vast majority it is on model and has a lot of movement which looks good
>Parents die, leaving you with 3 younger siblings to take care of
>You work your ass off to give them a better life for years
>Stress and the work hours have made you malnourished as hell and skinny as a rail
>A decade later your brother shows up
>You go to meet him and the faggot shows up fat as hell, clearly he ate away all the money you sent
>And where the fuck are your sisters, did the fat fuck eat them or sell them into slavery to afford more food?
Biscut's brother is a hero, you all need to stop mindlessly shitting on him and realize he was completely justified in his actions.
In the case of Sunrise, they're giving this to one of they're less talented studios. As they do with most AU gundam. Dunno what's up with this one in particular though, since most AU is by studio 3, who usually does a decent job most of the time.
I know that. I'm mostly stating that it had QUALITY. sometimes. Which is really unusual for Studio 1. And since it was announced they were handling it, I had crazy expectations for it when it comes to animation, so I was a bit critical when it popped out.
I guess it stood out more because the rest looks good I suppose.
It's hilarious that M3, criticised for its slowness, had more mecha action by this point than IBO does.
Usually a franchise anime series has animators working on episodes weeks or even a month in advance, with storyboards prepared and approved long before. This consistent QUALITY bullshit might be indicative of a boardroom in chaos where the producers are just throwing out whatever for storyboards and the animators are trying to deal with it.
>I know that. I'm mostly stating that it had QUALITY. sometimes. Which is really unusual for Studio 1.
Now it is fucking not. Even the most high budget OVA will not look good all the time so a tv show having a bit yet the vast majority not only looking good but having a lot of background detail and animation is great
You haven't even posted these awful looking parts as they are so few and not that bad. The only obvious one which springs to mind is Noredo in the Lucifer when we first see it
Aida did more in the first episode than Kudelia has done all show, and people complained a lot about Aida not doing anything and being useless
Luin and Barara had such fun chemistry.
It's pretty appalling that we have two episodes into second cour with literally zero mecha fight.
00 at this point have UN coalition forces vs Celestial Being desert battle
AGE with Battle of Bat Extermination as their first big battle
And here we have to deal with soon to be dead maid drama and dozens of sacrificial lambs fights in the name of great Kudelia.
Like, what was the point of fucking GUNDAM at all?

This character managed to ruin a 25 episode series. And her beta boyfriend too.
It's boderline DESTINY territory
forced UNDERSTANDING didn't help
My face when all those commie workers are going to get their shit wrecked in next episode.
Speaking of the ships don't you think Isaribi is low tier Gundam ship in the saga. Like it doesn't have any notable features aside being space boats.
That ship doesn't even have atmospheric flight capabilities, such a shame for this supposed White Base of IBO.
D-did that guy in the wooden barrel make it to Earth?
>Forgot to close his helmet due drunkness
Take a guess
He's like a living, breathing deathflag
