>>13785746 Seeing how there are so many stills like this as well as all that excessive exposition really makes me think that IBO was actually planned as a visual novel that got rushed to animation after a last minute decision. Same way age started development as a game
>>13787766 It's that realisation that Gundam as a franchise is about the kits and shows exist solely as hilariously overproduced adverts. Maybe it's why I think IBO is alright, I'm not expecting a quality cartoon out of it.
>>13787766 >It exists to sell models not get the most possible viewers. >I cant decided if its sad or not. Since the original Gundam TV show actually bombed, and that it was the model and toy sales that saved the franchise, I think it is a bit late to only realise it now.
>>13787766 >>13787888 >>13788683 Bandai doesn't give a shit about whether or not people think the anime's great. All that matters is how well the models are selling. Are there any figures for those? Last I heard there the Barbatos and Graze are doing well sales-wise.
>>13788785 It produced a lot of good gunpla accessories and made kitbashing a lot easier. It injected more life into the lifeblood of Gundam, which is Gunpla. The show can be fucking Beyblade for all I care; I just wanted the models (and resultant porn doujinshi from the shows' girls).
>>13788694 >Last I heard there the Barbatos and Graze are doing well sales-wise.
Graze has been really popular with modelers and customizers. I swear half the yearly compilations featuring gunpla from 2chan's model board last month had graze, often more than one (And not different versions of the graze, I mean multiples of the original kit customized in different ways). A fair amount of barbatos too. I have no idea how well the models are doing past that though.
>>13788968 It's kinda reminding me of how Destiny had what, 6 Zaku variants in it's line and 3 Goufs IIRC.
Bunch of guys I know have taken the bait. I'm starting to feel bad withholding the show's weaker-than-AGE's ratings from them. They're going to hurt if the show doesn't get a season 2 but I don't want to ruin their fun (even though they're using it to take potshots at G-Reco).
>>13788785 Build Fighters Gunpla was selling so well that people involved were all over Twitter talking about it. Build Fighters was so popular and well liked that it caused fans from all over the world to send in collages of their Gunpla in the same pose as Build Strike while thanking Bandai.
No one gives a shit about IBO as a whole. You don't hear about Bandai bragging about it, you don't hear much discussion about it. Even Try had them talking about how Build Burning was outselling G-Self and that Gunpla were performing well.
