Fumitan confirmed for dead.
>More useful than Kudelia
The show is the worst looking gundam ever but I am enjoying cour 2 a little more. Stuff is not as boring anymore cause the tweests and betrayals started. I hope the Schwalbe and Kimaris get some good scenes since so far the mecha fights have been awful.
Even if she didn't, the entire point of her character is that she has political connections and shit. That's why she bothered to go on the tour of mars in the first place. She isn't an unknown figure.
Anyone who knows enough about the situation to give a shit about Kudelia should have easy access to any photos of her that they need to identify her.
Yeah I double checked and they mention that she was a prominent figure at the "Noachis July Assembly" thing which started the whole independence movement in the first place. It doesn't make sense for literally no one to know what she looks like.
She's the operator in the opening though. And while the opening isn't indicative of the series itself, it's not like it's too far of a stretch for them to go "hurr everything is forgiven join our family."
>Fumitan is dead
Okay. But why should I care? She barely does anything at all.
You mean one of the random kids on the ship who does FUCKING NOTHING AT ALL but we're still supposed to care about?
Yeah, she gave a speech to some politicians. It probably wasn't simulcast across the Ariadne web.
I have to admit, there is a lot about this story that is extremely convenient. Akihiro's brother being mentioned right before randomly showing up is actually less of a coincidence than Biscuit's brother not only being at the colony that Tekkadan delivered supplies to but also being the negotiator for the rebel movement that was sheltering the rest of the crew.
But then again, most of /m/ doesn't bat an eye at Diana and Kihel looking and sounding exactly alike, Casval and Char looking and sounding exactly alike, Sayla winding up on the ship that Char/Casval is hunting, Cagalli and Kira both being in the GAT hangar when Kira's childhood bestie attacked, etc, etc, so I don't really see why we should hold IBO to a higher standard.
So go play in the traffic.
Or build a gunpla.
Or go make a thread about a show you like instead of being a twat about a show that other people are enjoying. I'm 99% positive that no one in this thread is in any way responsible for your mood swing.
Because you just listed things from multiple series happening. The Char and Sayla crap aren't even in the same league. Kira and Cagalli is a good example as is the Turn A one. The problem is that IBO has this happening all the time. The whole motives for some of the characters is assassinating a girl yet they don't know what she looks like. Despite her being a public speaker. Despite a spy living with her for years. That is too fucking stupid.
The only two absurd coincidences so far are Akihiro's brother and Biscuit's brother. The fact that Biscuit's brother doesn't know what Kudelia looks like isn't nearly on the level of Diana/Kihel, Belliri/Aida, Sayla/Char, Kira/Cagalli. It's just a character being ignorant of something they should know, not an absurd coincidence like sibling reunions or being identical strangers with the queen of the fucking moon.
It's from Tomino's novel, originally, but yes it's also in Origin 2. There was a real Char Aznable and Casval basically got Char killed and then took his placeo (this hasn't happened yet in the Origin anime, though). The reason he wears the eye mask is because the real Char had green eyes and Casval has blue eyes.
>The fact that Biscuit's brother doesn't know what Kudelia looks like isn't nearly on the level of Diana/Kihel, Belliri/Aida, Sayla/Char, Kira/Cagalli.
You're equating things that really aren't the same though. Well, I don't remember nearly enough of SEED to say much about it. But the other relationships are established as part of the setting. None of them come out of left field.
And to be clear, it's not specifically Biscuit's brother not knowing what Kudelia looks like (that's actually believable). It makes no sense that Gjallarhorn has no idea what Kudelia looks like. Especially not with the whole spy business.
The problem with Akihiro's brother is pretty obvious: the writing. People called that he would be a pirate right after he mentioned it, and they were right. Honestly, I don't have much of a problem with Biscuit's brother existing, but I don't like that it's repeating a similar kind of conflict as Akihiro and his brother (even fucking Mika drops a line on it). It just reeks of laziness.
Diana/Kihel looking the same is treated as a part of the setting, and the plot then develops from there. Bellri and Aida were hinted at, and again that was part of the setting. Same with Sayla and Char. It's not quite the same.
Not knowing what Kudelia looks like completely kills the whole point of their goals. Knowing what she looks like is literally the most important thing in the world to them and their goals. Them not knowing something as simple as that is terrible writing. They didn't even seem to have an educated guess of her age range or anything.
>Despite her being a public speaker.
She's not a public speaker, she's a college intellectual who has made some good press. She's only spoken like once which we were told on screen and never saw what she spoke about.
>Despite a spy living with her for years.
Fumitan is a spy for Noblis, not the Dort Colony cluster.
Are you really comparing "muh sekrit brother revealed right before important plot" to Char and Casval, Sayla in white Base (She was studying medicine at side 7 tho) and Diana Kihel Look alike?
>she's a college intellectual who has made some good press. She's only spoken like once
If this is true, why the fuck did earth choose her and start talks with her over anyone else?
>open to threesomes
>can take a beating
perfect wife material
spending some intimate time with the new waifu
>hopefully she does get assassinated
Even asshime had more chances to die than her.
>why should I care?
Because megane oppai waifu.
>You mean one of the random kids on the ship who does FUCKING NOTHING AT ALL but we're still supposed to care about?
We are living in an age were people expect only one thing from anime "characters", to be good fap material.
Yeah this show sucks, its characters suck and only idiots care, sadly it's bearing the Gundam name so we're all cursed to follow it like a bunch of autists.
I like Guts more than Mika, even with the idiotic "MUH OTOUTO" detour a couple episodes ago.
He needs to interact more with Lafter, I don't even care about shipping, just like their dynamic.
>She's only spoken like once
That's more than enough. We're told it was a major event, so it should have some press coverage and someone should have taken a photo.
>Fumitan is a spy for Noblis
Noblis was leaking info to Gjallarhorn to get her assassinated. Why the fuck would he not leak them a picture so they would actually know who to shoot (assuming they don't already know what she looks like)?
You are confusing the greater majority of Gjallarhorn with McGillis and Gaelio. Gjallarhorn as a majority doesn't really give a shit about some Martian girl who gave speeches.
That was the entire point of the first 4 episodes. Corral was just trying to make her a bigger issue than she really was so he could get more resources to stop the various Martian unrest because he's an incapable fuck. That's why Mcgillis was sent to Mars to investigate whether or not Coral's group legitimately were doing their job.
The Dort colony cluster (actually, probably just Biscuit's brother who's a retard) erroneously believes giving Gjallarhorn Kudelia will mean something when really it won't. Noblis is over glorifying Kudelia to other poor people and building a very fake grandiose image of her. It's just barely getting out there to the people of 1st world countries in the show that poor people are looking up to her.
What Gjallarhorn stationed at Dort would do with Kudelia is just punish her for providing arms to the Costco equivalent staff there. The assassination plan isn't related to Biscuit's brother chancing upon Biscuit being with a girl.
Fumitan is supposed to be part of the plan t get her accidentally killed and for Noblis to start spreading rumors that Gjallarhorn killed her on purpose to incite unrest within the working class on that specific colony cluster and than to the greater surrounding areas.
I don't disagree with you here, but none of this justifies Gjallarhorn not knowing what Kudelia looks like. Even if we assume literally in Gjallarhorn knows what she looks like, it makes zero sense for Noblis to not leak pictures of her to build up the grand image and also let the Gjallarhorn soldiers actually know what she looked like.
I'm far more interested in this than most of the character drama going on. How extensively will it be remodeled? I'd imagine it'll at least have a more Gundam-looking head, if not be stripped down to the Gundam frame and have new armor created.
Plus I'm assuming the new suit Douchey McPurplehair got is a Gundam frame too, based on the face. I want to know more about the history and role of the Gundam frames during the War than I do anything about these characters.
well anon the gunpla preview is out if you really want to get a sense of what it'll look like
plus it was in the OP for a brief glimpse
It's highly probable that the Gjallarhorn higher ups know what she looks like (Chocolate man knew who she was at the very least) but the mooks were not well informed.
Still possible, Merribit patched up blondie on the ship with surgery and nanomachines, so whose to say Fumi won't survive a near fatal injury plus that final preview was a little ambiguous
