16 ep. "Fumitan Admoss" preview pics
lol thanks Amazon.co.jp
Season 2 confirmed indirectly by CD listings now referring to the currently airing season as "Season 1"
So thrilling. And the worst part is knowing Fumitan is dying.
>it takes at least 150 days to fly from mars to earth
>"Why they aren't there yet?!"

TV ア ニ メ 「機動 戦 士 ガ ン ダ ム鉄血のオルフェンズ』サウンドトラック発売決定!2015年10月~2016年3月放送の第1期のBGMを中心に収録。 (C) RS
Basically stating this OST includes the first phase of Iron blooded orphan, does not say ANYTHING about a first season
>bought the HG kits
>enjoyed building them, don't have any complaints
>will be buying more Graze kits because they're cool
>immediately thought that the guy (Crank) in the box is an important character
And then I picked up the series
>Crank instagibs, completely obliterated just 3 episodes in
Will there be any ace pilot with a basic Graze as his/her main suit?
Granted his character is staple in every gundam series and their fate is to due because of honor, it's still disappointing (I didn't even reach to the point where I got attached to the character) to have him die so early.
oh yeah they should also stop using the giant robots in gundam because realism means good storytelling
No, it doesn't, and argument that everything should be as realistic as possible is bad. But "Make them reach their endgoal faster! I'm bored!" complaints are bad too.
Just, let them take their sweet ass time to do whatever they want to do. You'll hate it anyway, /m/. You hate everything. If IBO was fast-paced and full of gundams, you'd just complain that it doesn't develop characters. And mech designs are generic. And action is pointless. And you're bored or confused, like always.
looks like speculation, but everyone is taking it a word, so we'll have to wait for banrise to make a commnet.
maybe if they see enough positive reaction to this rumor it could sway them to make season 2
We're asking for at least one thing about this shitshow to improve. Right now IBO has neither good battles nor development nor decent pacing. We're hoping for things to speed up at least because the development is a lost cause and battles are probably a source of budget problems and directing combined, which is nearly impossible to fix. We're hoping for just one thing to change.
If this show was done well then yes, we'd still get a few fags complaining about it being edgefest: The Gundam but they would be the minority. Maybe we'd be able to have some fun discussion and wonder where the plot is going to take us. Maybe we'd care when someone dies. Maybe we'd
Except nothing suggested that. Even if something was confirmed saying Fall would be wrong since nothing said that either.
Amazon was referring to the soundtrack as the first cour like they always do and since IBO's main fanbase is newfags they don't know that.
Kind of looks like that Gatling jahannam msv
I can't speak for all of /m/, but I loved it because it tied into the salvage gimmick.
Then they basically refused to do anything meaningful with it, like 90% of what this show promised to do.
Well this is how wars are started, so no way in hell is this going to end cleanly on ep 24.
Also it looks like something big is going to get destroyed next episode since there is alot of debris floating around
This MS will be piloted by Kabuki NotPadme?
Yeah she has been one the whole time, it was her job to keep her safe until the right moment when they wanted Kurdelia to die, and that's when she blocked the bullet instead. But if there is anything to her back story, I'm sure mask guy will tell Kurdelia soon.
>gunshot on the back clearly missing vital organs
>she's probably still alive but suffering
>Mika knows this but he is a dick and wants her out of the picture so he can rape Kudelia
Except this show doesn't feel like it's written by Okada.
I came to IBO expecting something similar to WIXOSS or M3: a festival of overblown drama and exagerrated tragicomedy. I got what's possibly one of the most boring things I've ever laid my eyes upon.
Oh, so you are one of those guys. Okada doesn't really have much of a style. She is even more of a hack than Urobuchi, though she seems to share some of his suffering inclinations, it is in fact that she is just a typical drama woman. She writers whatever she is told to. She doesn't have any real personality. She is just a meme name in the industry.
And frankly is is retarded to like M3 and say this is boring.
The show isn't Okada's fault, Blame it on Bandai Sunrise who purposely made the show slow down so they can make more figures, this same shit happened with BFT, AGE 3rd arc and Gundam00 second season.
Nagai Tatsuyuki, the director made a tweet about Sunrise not letting them do their job, but then deleted the tweet.
>Blame it on Bandai Sunrise who purposely made the show slow down so they can make more figures
That makes zero sense. They speed up and have you introduce more new suits and fights yet IBO has hardly any of both, the majority being Graze but (colour)
>They speed up and have you introduce more new suits and fights yet IBO
Why do you think Rebake HG is getting released this month and Rebake is finally showing up in the series next episode?
Same thing happened with Pepe, Sunrise wants maximum profits so the best way is to release the kit close to their show appearance.
>best way is to release the kit close to their show appearance.
That's the normal thing to do though. Release the kit near when it shows up. The Rebake being forced in earlier and the kit coming out earlier than expected would mean they are forcing something, this is normal
Its normal from Bandai sunrise stand point, but its the reason why Gundam shows have either slow pacing or fast pacing which affects the plot/story of the show.
Which is why shows with little or simplistic story like BF don't get hurt by this since its about selling gunplas.
Gundam has always been about selling gunplas, sure, but it didn't meddle with the story like it has been doing for the past few years
As a huge fan of IBO, I am very disappointed with the Fumitan bit. First off the snipers should have waited to take out Kudelia. They had positioning and no reason not to finish her.
The part I hated and I mean hated was Kudelia's reaction. She and Fumitan used to visit worn torn places and seen death. Hell she even held a women until she died not 10 minutes before and accepted her death quickly. Yet with Fumitan she didn't cry, scream or show any emotion. It should have been happening right then and there that her best friend died.
I NEED FUCKING GUNDAM BATTLES. Jesus christ. I am the same anon who asked recently to the board what their top 10 Gundam were and so far I watched the 0079 triology movie and now Zeta. I have seen gundam battles in space, land, water and in air. I have yet to see consistent gundam battles in the show and I am getting bummed out by this. If this show is a 1 cour season then I cannot defend this anymore. Ffs Tekkedan was barely in this at all.
I mean seriously I am the very few IBO posters who consistently praised this but I am beginning to lose my patient when I am watching other Gundams.
Well who didn't see that coming, still a better episode I guess. Wonder what McMurdo is planning, what Kudelia's decision about her decision is going to be decided, and they're building hype for what looks like a pretty large scale battle next episode.
Another rant is that how is Kudelia still this foolish? She should have had years as a kid to mold herself into a person based on realism and not fantasy idealism. Chrsit. I was visibly angered when she tried giving a homeless kid fucking candy. Like fuck off would ya?
hate to say we told you so
The show is just really inconsistent on how much she knows, then gain she isn't the only character like that. IBO is a show that is written to fit the moment but not work on a larger scale, this is partly why it does get praise as people like what it is doing at a certain point but don't look at it on a bigger scale
Mika putting her out of her misery, similar to that one guy earlier on, would have actually been interesting and a nice call back. It would also relate to a previous conflict about killing that seems to have vanished at the moment due to lack of focus.
It does show that Mika has become a bit more human, being visibly uncomfortable and not even mentioning dead, corpse, etc. Though that could be the translation, but it does make it look like he's become a little conscientious.
She already witnessed a massacre, held a dying woman in her arms, and Fumitan literally died on top of her.
It is questionable, but I'm not suggesting he should've killed her as Kudelia watched. Maybe Fumitan could've also requested it like the other guy did.
Well, you just gotta wait pussy.
First of all, Kudelia was in denial that Fumitan died. She doesn't want to believe that her friend died.
Second,you watched this so far and not see a a pattern here? It's about three talking episodes then a battle then the cycle refreshes. Not fucking hard to see. If you don't like it or you are really impatient for "MUH GUNDUMB FAGHTS". Just watch your other gundamfag shows. Feel free dropping this.
Third, this has to be a fucking bait.
Kudelia should have broke down on the battlefield and realized Fumitan was dead. She has seen enough death in her life to realize that and also she just held a dead girl in her hands.
There should be nice balance of heavy action scenes, with politics and plot progression. What we have her is too much focus on the characters and not enough of what makes Gundam great, which is the battles. If I see "Gundam" slapped on the front of the title of a show, I expect fucking action you twit.
Fuck off with you calling me a pussy, I been tolerating IBO bashing from the beginning and I am beginning to see where this show is starting to fall flat. Compared to the classics, this doesn't have the grand scope I was hoping for.
They are what the Titans would have become if they had lasted longer.Gjallhorn has been in power for 300 years while the Titans were only around for a few years and never achieved their goals.
But he wasn’t that ugly, in the other hand he is the Don of a mafia, it would have been weird if he was actually good
That doesn't make any fucking sense. Why would they take a women on the brink of death, brain wash, spend a lot of money changing her and then give her a mobile suit.
That would be terrible.
i remember the first time Orphans Namida came up and i was so fucking hyped for the next episode
now we're here
what the fuck did you do Okada
Wasn’t Kudelia speech 9 years prior the current events? So she was like 7 or something like that, I guess Nobliss put a mole with her just in case she actually achieved something
For the love of god this was expected since chapter 1, Fumitan didn't did shit at all in the series though, more than "I don't speak too much and look like someone who will betray". This is going in the worst gundam route, at least Destiny was a trainwreck.
You're a literallywho in a movement until something really fucking big happens.
Yknow like getting massacred in a half-assed false flag.
Alternatively, mobile workers emit a stupidity field.
But the movies/remaster make even LESS sense!
Put this way. I didn't see any gundam besides this one besides half of SEED (before I dropped it), (10 or so episodes of SEED Destiny before I dropped it) and both season 00.....I was enjoying myself. But then actually watching the 0073 triology and now watching Zeta...I don't know it just feels so meh. Like with 0073 and Zeta, there is constant strategy, two sides being developed, great battles that range from all kinds of terrain and characters that are motivated by different ideals. This just feels too.....simplistic? I don't know how else to describe it. It doesn't have the big scope a usual gundam series should have and thus it feels so small in the grand scheme of things.
I really think this anime would be much much better if it didn't belong to the Gundam series. There is just too much good to be compared that it gets outshined.
This show is the fucking worst. It trades action for plot and characters but neither are interesting. Seriously this episode was like poorly thought out fan fiction. Who puts a spy in a caregiver position for 9 years, what could possibly have motivated fumina to take that job? Guess we'll never know, it's not important anyway she was only needed to set up a cliche drama scene.
Also kudelia is not at all like the lady in the book who he a sword and looks somewhat inspiring, kudelia stumbles into trouble and try bodies fall on her and she is continually praised as some sort of inspiring hero. She could be mentally retarded and it wouldn't make a difference, she's only important because the show says she is, it's not earned or convincing to the audience.
Just what a disaster this show is.
It's not like he betrayed them though. He straight up tells Kudelia to her face he's hoping she'll stir up shit that he can use to get mo' money. And at the end of this episode he chastises Nobliss for trying to kill her and stop that revolution gravy train.
Okay so plotting Kudelia's life
Small kid has interest in helping poor, even forces her way into seeing and (badly) trying to help.
Then she has highier level education presumably learning something about politics. Not clear if she does any work to help poor here
Somehow for no clear reason she is chosen to give a speech at a very important meeting. This is big enough (possibly with help) to reach earth
Given all that, how is Kudelia so weak willed and ignorant? She seems completely written for convenience and not as a character
>he's only important because the show says she is, it's not earned or convincing to the audience.
This is a problem I always had with anime, and some other kind of fiction, characters who "tell us" that someone is special, or a genius, but without ever prove it with actions.
> A series of moments between Fumitan and Kudelia ran parallel to a public demonstration, hurtling us toward an emotionally shattering conclusion.
>emotionally shattering conclusion.
>Basically, the plan that Fumitan's employer has is very similar to the one in the Lion King where Scar plots to get Simba involved in an outside commotion so Mufasa has to save him.
>Then she has highier level education presumably learning something about politics.
According to this she mostly studied history and economics.
>Somehow for no clear reason she is chosen to give a speech at a very important meeting.
She helped organize the meeting, comes from a wealthy family, has had a higher education than a lot of other people in the movement, and her dad is a major diplomat.
>She helped organize the meeting
That would mean she had to know a lot more about this whole thing if she could organise on that scale. Never mind not be a weaker than a sleepy kitten
At the very least that's around where the ribcage is so there's major arteries and lungs in that area. It's very likely should could have died from blood loss. Then again, she also would probably unable to give her repentant death speech as she'd be drowning in her own blood, but it's melodrama, we don't need to worry about stuff like that.
Actually, I'm impressed, we had two death speeches this episode. One from Fumitan and one from nameless activist worker. Both managed to croak out everything they needed to say before they bit the dust.
Forgot about that. Her meeting with McMurdo showed that she was mainly concerned about things that would actually make mars profitable like loosening regulations on mining trades. Corn farming is a dead end on mars.
No that doesn't, it just shows that IBO turns traits on and off when it needs them. If she had been in higher education and taken some sort of specialisation in economics she'd have some idea about bio fuel cause it is always such a huge market
All things considered, maybe they should choose the route with Kudelia undergoes the operation to become a grunt pilot Grunt. A Joan of Arc protected by Mika. At least there would be more opportunities for battles
Imagine if Orga had been killed early and she had to take the post of leader trying to organise this all. Would have been neat especially if it kept on mars
If all she did was fail then yes, cause that would be another way the show could be badly written. if the show was well written and had a nice mixture which made sense for the characters people would be happier
>if the show was well written and had a nice mixture which made sense for the characters people would be happier
Well, making Kudelia a pilot doesn't make sense anyway, so there you go.
So why exactly do some people recognize Kudelia while others don't? People you would expect to know like news reporters and Gjallarhorn grunts don't seem to know what she looks like, the latter even confusing Atra for Kudelia while random colonists recognize her from news reports. In fact, Tekkadan not hiding her and allowing her to roam the streets shopping with just a few people accompanying her suggests they didn't expect her presence to even cause much of a commotion as if she wouldn't be noticed.
While I could easily just pin it on bad writing, I definitely feel like I'm missing some details as well when multiple character specifically state they do not know who she is while others recognize her very quickly.
>implying you need to make an episode of every individual day even when nothing interesting, cool, funny, heart warming, dramatic, or etc happens
Mobile Suit Gundam: Paint Drying Orphans season 2, coming soon.
that part seemed fairly realistic to me,She's only made waves in mars because that's all she could do back there Gjallarhorn must be censoring news a lot in order to prevent uprisings like we saw in the episode from becoming to grounded and frequent.
It makes sense that lower class citizens would've barely known about her unless they heard of her from stories told by their friends.
>Imagine if Orga had been killed early and she had to take the post of leader trying to organise this all. Would have been neat especially if it kept on mars
She has zero politics and strategy skills.
>censoring news a lot
This mean she wouldn't be seen, and if it was somehow there was a fault and they accidentally let the news report on her one time people would spread that image
you're right I forgot about that part. I'm still trying to figure out how they knew about Kudelia, but didn't know what she looked like.
Maybe she was just some driving force the people can rally behind, but at the same time not many of them knew what she looked like because of something? this is confusing
>While I could easily just pin it on bad writing, I definitely feel like I'm missing some details as well when multiple character specifically state they do not know who she is while others recognize her very quickly.
It's not bad writing, Kudelia is modeled after Malala Yousafzai. It's more like copy paste of real life with the exception that Malala was always competent before and after the incident that made her famous.
>Malala writes one blog entry and suddenly intellectuals and other like minded people, and elites who want to change the world are interested
>Kudelia gives one speech and suddenly intellectuals and other like minded people, and elites who want to change the world are interested
If you treat Mars as the equivalent of Pakistan or any of those places you don't normally give a shit about, of course you aren't going to know who she is unless you are from that region or have an interest in domestic matters of other countries.
It was only after Malala was shot in the head and survived did anyone outside of Pakistan give a shit about her that wasn't from that area or wasn't some high intellectual/politician already involved with such matters.
You can see that all the lower classes and economically exploited only know about Kudelia because Nobliss is disseminating all this bullshit about Kudelia, over glorifying her to the working class when she hasn't done anything.
It would be the same if Malala after writing her blog entry suddenly became famous when she hasn't done anything except write blog entries and speak at gatherings...oh WAIT THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED IRL WHEN SHE GOT SHOT.
Malala hasn't passed any legislation, organized any protests, or done anything prior to being shot.
Is IBO the most quality laden Gundam show? I think it's even gotten 0079 beat. I can't think of a single shot that's not a close up panning shot of a still that wasn't severely deformed and off model
Your argument falls apart as people here might not know what she looks like because her ideas aren't effecting us. The people on Mars do give a shit as do those on Dort and have an inconsistent ability to recognise her and have photos available
hits it but probably needs to emphasize it more
We aren't talking about normal workers here, we're talking about activist workers who believe in the maiden of the revolution. One random activist even calls her such. These people meet and discuss activism, have moderate political knowledge to better their own conditions, and know of what's going on on mars. If one, EVEN ONE of them was able to get an image of her, all of them would have it. The image of their revolutionary idol would spread faster than the dankest memes on 9gag. Did only that one random guy see her on TV? If so, it must be a huge coincidence that he happened to be walking by her as she tried to cross the road (not that this entire episode wasn't a series of absurd coincidences).
I was sort of expecting fumitan's death to be the catalyst that finally gets her to wake up in taking a more active role, but I'm not sure what's going on with the writing so we'll see.
The space rat infestation in this series is quite bad
>Kudelia will never survive getting shot in the face
I dunno how bad I should feel that all I know about Malala is that she's the Paki girl who got shot in the face and left the Taliban with egg on their face when everyone started calling their shit out on trying to silence a little girl.
Yeah, but that's in the show that we're currently watching. If this were a different show where orga died early on, she would probably have been written very differently. Fictional characters aren't real people with real backstories.
What a Deja vu here.
Shiro amada had this scene too in MS08th
There's a lot that goes on in the world everyday. Humans aren't expected to care about all of them, and it's unreasonable to think they should or even can. The fact that you know the story and remember even vague details puts you in a minority relative to the entire population on the planet.
>The people on Mars do give a shit as do those on Dort and have an inconsistent ability to recognise her and have photos available
No one on Dort knows or gives a shit about Kudelia except the Space Costco workers, and even then that's reliant on that individual person having this universe's equivalent of an internet or TV. The show spoonfeeds the audience that people who work at Space Costco are poor, did you miss that?
Gjalahorn stationed on Dort only knows about Kudelia's existence because it was leaked to Savarin that she supplied the workers arms and they are after her for that purpose. This was very recent only though because Biscuits' brother was the one who supplied this information to Gjalahorn, and we know that he's a fucking retard that didn't research what she looked like and actually thought he could use her as a bargaining chip.
It's also completely unrealistic for everyone to be able to identify a person even if there are photos.
That's how incidents like movie actors are able to randomly walk into a Target and most people won't be able to notice them except for a few that blab.
Exactly. The media has over hyped her. She's received a Nobel Peace Price for what? For talking about things.
>...for her struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education
This amounts to fucking nothing!
Her fucking Wikipedia is amazingly well detailed
You can definitely see her as the source of inspiration behind Kudelia's character.
>except the Space Costco worker
You mean that huge movement that has been the big focus here? The ones who should know yet seemingly only one guy saw the show she was on yet no one else on the colony saw?
>universe's equivalent of an internet or TV.
He literally says on tv, they have ipads. How could you miss that?
>Gjalahorn stationed on Dort only knows about Kudelia's existence because it was leaked to Savarin
And seeing as she has been on TV and we know sub space messages are possible they should have a photo but at least a description. They have even had people travel there and back on a mission dealing with Kudelia but no one grabbed a photo I guess. Also Seeing a fatty wanted her dealt with he has no reason not to leak a photo or description to them
>It's also completely unrealistic for everyone to be able to identify a person even if there are photos.
She's there idol. They are obsessed with her. Yes they should be fucking able to identify her
Even mid-distance shots are fucking terrible.
>That's how incidents like movie actors are able to randomly walk into a Target and most people won't be able to notice them except for a few that blab.
Except that's the exact opposite of what's happening. Everyone has been misidentifying her because they haven't seen her before at all. Not even trained soldiers ordered to capture her were debriefed on her appearance which being on dort is no excuse because Kudelia is considered to be a problem case by the people at the highest echelons so information about her would be freely available through the organization to anyone who needed it to apprehend her.
Next, the only guy who has seen her did the positive ID spot-on in a crowd. Your point about celebrities is completely irrelevant.
Anon's problem with the Malala comparison is spot on. To an outsider of the subject of course they wouldn't recognize Malala, but to other dissenting groups who followed her, and to the Taliban themselves, her face was already known.
Celebrities do get recognised when out though, and most celebrities aren't basically worshipped as the one helping a revolution
>Everyone has been misidentifying her because they haven't seen her before at al
But she was on TV as the show said. Plus the fact no one has a photo is a problem many have pointed out
>To an outsider of the subject
these people aren't though. They are revolutionaries who are in love with her, news crew who should know about the goings on and apparently one station has reported on her and a military out to get her that easily have the resources to get a photo
Anon remember what happened last time they tried to be creative
You tell him man
i do have to complain about that crazy scifi shit the gallahorn people wear. Like their just.. military, that's not what modern military uniforms look like. What was the character designer thinking?
And what the fuck is up with the barbatos???? I mean tekkadan are just.. Delivery boys and the barbatos is like just.. A machine. If I was the designer I would have made it a forklift
Even then, they got the uniforms wrong. I understand that the workers are supposed to be treated very poorly, but I find it hard to believe a futuristic, space colonising civilisation would completely forgo the use of reflector strips, something essential for Health & Safety reasons. Pic related
It is easy to believe, however, that they were just too cheap and lazy to even try making their uniforms believable by making little strips that simulate reflectors on the designs.
I mean I'm sure we're holding IBO up to a higher standard that other shows by even bitching about the uniforms of dockworkers, but for a show that was according to the production crew supposed to be more realistic and down to Earth than previous Gundams, they're doing a pretty piss poor job.
Lets try to fix these last few episodes
Merribit is the one mistaken and captured not Atra, the photo everyone has isn't great (Kudelia has not been seen on the news or anything)
Fumitan wasn't Kudelia's maid for ever but a recent plant who had grown attached (over a long time it makes less sense she would betray and then turn back seeing as Kudelia hasn't developed)
Set up this book a long time in advanced, have Kudelia read it to people/make them read it in her class
Police either don't raid the dock workers or if they do we see loses on both sides and the situation keeps escalating from there not being the start of a slow march
Have the dock worker's plans be more guerrilla warfare style because they know they can't compete with an army
Have the fighting cause a robot fight outside the colony with garma (that possibly leads into) which keeps most of Tekkadan busy while others deal with the bussiness inside
Condense this all to 2 episodes
>Fumitan wasn't Kudelia's maid for ever but a recent plant who had grown attached (over a long time it makes less sense she would betray and then turn back seeing as Kudelia hasn't developed)
>Set up this book a long time in advanced, have Kudelia read it to people/make them read it in her class
These two are retarded but the rest is only marginally better than the tripe we got
Why are they retarded?
Fumi would have grown attached to Kudelia over all those years, so to apparently not or do so and betray means turning back for no reason bad writing. A metaphor like the whole book thing should be set up in advanced and would make the whole knights thing fit better
>according to the production crew supposed to be more realistic and down to Earth than previous Gundams
Man, did they say that? I can't believe it. Maybe they meant the trappings like child soldiers and... desert are like real earth.
I think it's kind of implied that Fumitan's hard feelings for the princess's naivete were used to turn her. It's not like the whole world had it in for her when she was just a kid, it was only after she became outspoken that it was a problem.
They really just needed to give Fumitan a better reason to turn, like lingering ill will towards the rich, out-of-touch family or something. And then point out that being with tekkadan has shown her that more than anything else kudelia was more like a daughter to her despite no blood relation, and she's really only now realizing this due to their influence.
Maybe if they'd stop talking about things we already know about, they could have fit in some missing puzzle pieces to make it work.
I agree about the book though. Just like not!Guts's brother popping up out of nowhere, we really needed some indication about the story of the maiden of the revolution and how it relates to fumitan's history with kudelia. We got "subtle" hints about fumitan's betrayal with her shifty eyes and necklace stares, we could have gotten a few quick references to the maiden's story.
>I think it's kind of implied that Fumitan's hard feelings for the princess's naivete were used to turn her.
This could work but my problem is Kudelia didn't change there
But mainly you are right, the whole bit is so under developed so any answer seems unsatisfying
Right, Kudelia didn't change which is why fumitan still feels dissatisfied with kudelia and turned, which seems like a really lazy motivation. We'll just have to live with it being some sort of hazy reason having to do with unclouded eyes and being a poor child herself.
One of the reasons they decided not to include beams is because it would be unrealistic if a mobile suit can take out something in one hit, or destroy something like a battleship.
Despite the fact that the Barbatos still one hits everyone, but just with it's mace or katana, and the fact that the entire original premise of the mobile suit being that they have enough firepower to take down a spaceship, and that mobile suit wars will almost always lead to mass extinction.
Years ago, there was a survey done by Times (I think) where they had people just randomly ask pedestrians stuff. Barely anyone recognize ANY politicians or important political figures.
But almost everyone knew William Hung.
I'm not saying there isn't bad writing in IBO, but this sure as hell isn't. People are hell lot more ignorant than you think.
But your predictions were wrong as fuck with how fumitan dies, for fucks sake this prediction was made on december 31st where fumitan being a traitor was pretty much already revealed. Thats like me now saying mcgillis is the masked dude = predictable plot even though thats meant to be obvious as fuck and isnt some big reveal. Fumitan's betrayal was always meant to be something we knew was happening but were waiting to see her actually backstab cuckdelia
As pointed out in the thread, that's random people. These people are political activists who revere kudelia as the maiden of the revolution. Average joe schmo didn't go to work that day because the dock was shut down from the strike, these guys who keep misidentifying her are supposed to be the ones who would reasonably know what she looked like. Soldiers given orders to capture her don't even know what she looks like.
Heck, she appeared on TV before, but none of the news people recognized her either.
>according to the production crew supposed to be more realistic and down to Earth than previous Gundams
>and down to Earth
Guess they just haven't gotten there yet
I can't help but think of Fumitan whenever I look at the Hyakuren's legs
silly blue puffy pants MS
>Fumitan blocks a sniper rifle shot by just standing in front of it
>the snipers don't get killed or scared off because Mika found them or something, they just go "you know what fuck it I am not being paid enough to shoot twice let's go home"
>hey how about this episode we have Shizuka Ishigami play every minor female role, nobody will notice right?
What is wrong with the people making this show?
>it would be unrealistic if a mobile suit can take out something in one hit, or destroy something like a battleship
Whenever nips enter "what is realistic and what isn't" territory, they simply go full retard. Those sad fucks are so full of bullshit.
Doesn't matter what they said. Just an excuse for shitty drama
