I love how the Main protagonist's Gundam is named after the American version of God Gundam, which technically is what Build Burning Gundam is based on.
Also, I'm curious about Charlie Sheen Gundam.
it's a custom Re-GZ, the most stylish of Zetas.
cause she's a big girl.
It doesn't deserve the Zeta name. It doesn't even transform, it just puts on a plane-shaped hat.
Original Zeta is the most stylish of Zetas.
both of you are wrong the Edgy Red Snake Zeta is best zeta.
if we're gonna go red, I honestly prefer Zero Shiki.
less garish color scheme, better main body, better legs, bunch of hardpoints instead of weirdo looking funnels. It's a much, much better looking design than poor AGE FX
Mafty, I thought you were cooler.
i never use Amuro related stuff in these design contests, its not fair to the other contestants
Build burning is a original design and is not based on the God/burning gundam. It lists no base gundam in its official bio and doesn't have anything directly from them.
It does carry a lot of G flavor though, which makes sense since it's okawara and its supposed to be a martial arts gundam.
Winning gundam is also confirmed as an original design with no base MS.
>being the guy that said ()
>the Age 2 Zeta thing.
>seeing all the rustled jimmies
oops, guess people can't take a joke...
No...don't be that guy. You were not joking.
The gundam designs look a lot better here than in the poster. I'm more hyped now.
I just wish that the girl wasn't stuck with an SD, but I'll probably get over it so long as it doesn't job too much. It probably will, but I can hope anyways.
Build Burning resembles a modified Impulse Gundam to me.
No it doesn't.
It is most likely a complete scratch build.
BNot really. Any similarities are sot of overlap due to okawara's style. Freedom and gundam X have similar chest pieces as well and that's about the only reasonably overlapping feature on the build burning and impulse.
Aside from the shoulders they have the exact same silhouette. Foot shape and design. The leg vents were carried into the ankle armor as well as any hard points for adding Plavksy shenanigans. Even the crotch piece is the same. I'd be really surprised if in show its not based on anything Gundam as a base.
Freedom and X have nearly identical crotch pieces as well and freedom and strike freedom have similar ankle armor too. The feet on them are the same too.
Okawara recycles A LOT of design elements across his original designs.
And here's the thing, a lot of the stuff is similar, but nothing except the crotch is identical to anything else. Pretty much every other BF design has made changes, but retained some identical pieces. They all also list a base design on their pages. Build burning only has similarities at best (And as I said okawara recycles a lot of different parts designs) and doesn't list anything on its page as a abse. Winning gundam also doesn't list anything and was confirmed as an original design.
Pretty obvious build burning is going to list god or shining as inspiration for melee MS the same way Miss sazabi lists Nobel and infinite justice as inspiration for close combat MS without directly being made from them.
I'm not sure how fond I am of the idea of Gundams that don't have a base model. I do like the Build Burning though.
So, is Blue supposed to be China's brother?
He never had blue hair in the first season.
We still don't know who "Mirai Kamiki" is, a yet-to-be-introduced character we only know exists because they list Endo Aya as her VA in the official site. We may be getting our token MILF yet.
>Purple haired dude with glasses
>The fujoshi are fired up already the yaoi will overflow
We're still not done with Tatsuya but there are mob books being planned for him, or that could have been a joke. i havent seen sketches yet.
Who will be the new Ral? Mwu?
Pretty much confirmed.
Seeing how Red is a martial artist of sorts, it may be either a Schwarz Bruder or Master Asia.
It could be anyone at this point, really. Maybe even Nils http://youtu.be/ODebErZ97NM
>Maybe even Nils
Shit no, please, Niggaboo was one of the worst characters.
I'm not sure if anyone has talked about the voice actors yet, so here we go:
Sekai's voice actress is Togashi Kazumi, and it appears to be her first lead role, but she did Annelotte (Hobo's girlfriend, IIRC) in SRW Z3-1.
Yuuma's voice actor is Uchida Yuuma, who also appears to have only done minor roles and extras before.
Fumina's voice actress is Makino Yui, who amazingly seems to be a relative veteran. She voiced Honoka in Flying Cake Girl, Mio (the pink loli) in NEEDLESS and Sakura in several of the Tsubasa and xxxholic adaptations.
So much like the original series, this looks like it's going to be newbies galore.
While she is relatively new in the VA scene, she did do many OP's and In songs for a bunch of anime, including my favorites from Aria.
Hope they take advantage of her singing this season.
>old master Nils
They're too young for such roles. They were kids in the first series and this is only like seven years later.
They don't even need to bring in a new MILF (though I wouldn't complain about it), they could just set up some excuse to keep showing Rinko. She should be looking just as good as before.
>Master Riddhe tries to fuck the midriff girl
>Master Riddhe proposes to the midriff girl
>Everyone calls Master Riddhe "pedo"
>Mineva and Banana will be background characters, Master Riddhe goes berserk
Sunrise meta jokes will be the best.
Gunpla battle...has changed.
Her cup-size, hasn't.
>So much like the original series, this looks like it's going to be newbies galore.
As was explained in the past, it's to keep the costs down. The more inexperienced the lower the pay. Some veterans end up getting less work just because their costs are too high.
Sunrise can do this because they don't need to hire famous people, Gundam is famous enough.
>Her cup-size, hasn't.
Blame the industry for going overboard with flat chests. Back in the day (Like with Lina Inverse of Slayers) "flat" means small. Now "flat" means literally flat.
I bet Sei himself has larger boobs than China by now. It's from the Rinko genes.
meanwhile, the prequel Manga is going to enter a tournament arc. that'll be something. I dont forsee it wrapping up before November and this new series airs (it won't be enough for volume 3 tankobon but you never know..
the manga can just go off the rails sometimes.
>The Mao seems covered by glasses guy for long range and probably gonna be the jobber.
well Yuuma isn't really a battle guy, he builds for artistic hobby, like China did. so we dont expect him to be a battle genius.
That liberal use of red on some GBF Gundams looks really really nice. I know it's a pretty minor thing when it comes to customized parts but it's a great deviation from the usual blue.
Is it true that the SD can Gattai?
Will it fuse with Lightning during a super important battle as a metaphor of how much spats and megane love each other after being tsun-tsun for reach other and full of unresolved sexual tension during the whole series?
It's described as being full of gimmicks.
The Lightning Gundam on the other hand has tons of slots to fit pegs all over it's body (one on each arm, each shoulder, each leg, each side of the waist armor, and one on it's back at least), so the SD could maybe split apart into armor for the Lightning if you really want them to gattai.
>Main girl's Gundam turns out to be just an add-on for one of her male friends (the one that's likely to be her romantic interest at that)
Now that would be just swell.
Winning will combine with both Lightning and Build Burning to make Gundam TRY, which itself can be formed in 3 different ways. At first the three will be hesitant towards combining but as they grow as comrades it will become more powerful, representing their growth as friends.
Each protagonist ends up with their own person to pair off with, not each other. Sekai will get a young Allenby-esque girl that's also new to Gunpla, Yuuma will get Sazaki's sister, and Fumino will get an eager young modeler who looks up to her. If this happens someone owes me 10 bucks.
We Saji now.
SD line has had a lot of gimmicks in general.
But will there be a bara character like Ral? If there's not I'm fucking dropping this show. All you heterosexuals get so much anime to masturbate to and since I like giant manly men I barely get anything. It's not fair.
Holy shit, I am so hyped for this show now.
Is it that time of the week again where we post all Fumina pics we have?
I'm looking forward to the show having fights and the charm it had to draw me in in S1, despite all the prejudice I and others had against it at first.
Sure, I would watch it day one this time around. But I want the kind of... "magic" it had in S1. A bit of everything. Cheesy and cliched writing but entertaining enough with good fights and a little bit of homages, plus that little "something extra".
