Episode 16: Fumitan Admoss
Not a big loos, we still have a whole ship of other nice ladies.
I wish the show would actually spend some time with them. I get the feeling theyre probably going to start dropping like flies towards the ends and it will expect us to care despite despite giving us nothing to care about other than their looks. And this whole harem thing as well, you'd think after introducing something like that, the show might have shown a bit exploring the dynamics of that relationship. Its been roughly ten episodes since that explanation and if it wasnt for naze actually telling us that theyre part of his harem i would never have known any of the crew except for amida were his wives. I cant even recall a scene where naze ever talks to azee
>tfw Akihiro is too gay for that
>tfw you were not there instead
It was obvious from the beginning.
Sudden change of course reminded me of Tytania, where nothing happened half way through the series.
Leg armor makes it look as if there is a knee joint missing.
Is it wrong that I like Akihiro's little dynamic with Lafter than Space Fellini's dynamic with her? Amida and Fellini are fine, but Lafter just clicks better with Aki in my mind.
It is a pity that IBO (or basically most Gundam for that matter) now has 1 OP/ED per cour, otherwise we could have
ORPHEEEEENS, NAMIDA~playing when Fumitan died in Kudelia's arms
I just started 00 and holy shit, it's good! I'm glued to the screen from the first minutes. Things are happening, robots are fighting, designs are interesting, characters are pretty. No wonder you guys think ibo is boring, it's just my fault for forgetting how good anime should look and feel.
00 has its fair share of flaws, some more forgivable than others, but it most definitely blows IBO out of the water in every way imaginable.
Wait a minute.
>IBO is actually coming overseas
>IBO might be getting a second season
>IBO places very well in polls
>IBO sells well
>/m/ still thinks it's unsuccessful
Literally what in the fuck?
And then I would end up laughing at the scene like a terrible person since I always feel that ORPHEEEEEENS NAMIDA~ is one of those "over the top dramatic" songs
Being commercially successful is irrelevant to /m/ since
IBO doesn't pander to /m/ hard enough
Well they need an enemy villainess to catfight with.
Surprisingly enough, a bunch of female human debris pilots would make a nice counterpoint to Teiwaz's crew. Whereas Naze cares about his harem, the leader of the female human Debris treats his girls like shit and we get a post rape scene just to show much of a bastard he is and the female villainess is nothing more than political marriage between Gjallarhorn to keep him loyal.
She doesn't even deserve to be in the title of the episode
>IBO is actually coming overseas
Like most Gundam
>IBO might be getting a second season
>IBO places very well in polls
Like most Gundam
>IBO sells well
Half off with promo code first volume.
I was referring to the series poll. Not the character ones.
Never said it was good. It is successful though.
I'm sorry, did AGE or G-Reco get dubbed or even released here?
>Like most Gundam
Unless it's G-Reco, apparently.
>It is successful though.
Is it though?
Still, if you want girl on girl action. You need an evil version of Turbine's harem. Also great for drama and since all of the bad guys are irredeemable bastards who we have little pity for.
But then again, the only reason why they made Marida a prostitute was the lore's way to ensure she is unable to continue the Puru lineage through plot. The prostitution part was a way to show how heavily indoctrinated she was in a slave mindset
>Still, if you want girl on girl action. You need an evil version of Turbine's harem. Also great for drama and since all of the bad guys are irredeemable bastards who we have little pity for.
Well, they'll just exist to show that adults are pieces of shit and die horribly like the boys did, so, dunno. Done, really.

Hmmm, needs drama, well maybe one of them is pregnant with the evil guy's child and a dilemma is made in killing her or not as the main plot issue. Does Mika have the nerve to murder a pregnant young girl?
>Hmmm, needs drama, well maybe one of them is pregnant with the evil guy's child and a dilemma is made in killing her or not as the main plot issue. Does Mika have the nerve to murder a pregnant young girl?
Well, one, putting someone who is pregnant on a battlefield is stupid even for IBO's hilariously ham-fisted adult villains.
Two, Mika has shown no compunction or hesitation in killing anyone, so I guess the question's answered anyway.
its a shop anon
i wish i could shop away all of ibos actual quality
but that wasn't released outside of malaysia to my understanding,
the fact that their getting a proper one for the west shows they're trying to make a push for it here again.
by the way have you seen the BF dub? I tried looking a while back but couldn't find it
i feel sorry for the snapfags when they get their hands on this, its going to be one big tan block
If anything he has become more humane. He executed cuffed guys to prove a point. He shot Crank without a second thought. Now he's questioning if he's a sociopath and acting relatively normal. He didn't even go apeshit when Atra got beat up to garner sympathy like he did with Cookie and Cracker.
>tfw your first appearance is of you jobbing
>tfw you probably won't be getting a gunpla
Sorry for talking about 00 again instead of IBO, but I just got to the second op, and I swear to god, I've heard it somewhere before. Was it only used as 00 op? Never in any other anime?
Also, nadleeh was fucking amazing.
>Now he's questioning if he's a sociopath and acting relatively normal.
Bearing in mind that only a scant handful of episodes ago, his only reaction to being called out on perhaps enjoying killing other people was essentially 'Eh, whatever, this guy's a piece of shit, fuck the kids I've killed, he's good to die anyway.'
It's my only hope, I'm only finishing this because at this point why not?
This is a pretty weak season anyway, watching Votoms and Patlabor afterwards to wash the bad taste out of my mouth.
>At this point it must be a running joke in the animation staff.
Funny enough, as a kid I once watched a random episode of Gundam, I think it was Zeta? Anyway, I was annoyed that there was no giant robot battle the entire episode, it was all just talking.
I am amused that here we are, years later, and we have Gundam fans complaining that there isn't enough giant robots. I though we are old enough to actual want "plot" in our shows now? I was in primary school at the time and didn't see the point of a show without fighting, but does /m/ feel this way still?
> I think it was Zeta? Anyway, I was annoyed that there was no giant robot battle the entire episode
That didn't happen. Zeta is one of the most MotW Gundams ever. Every episode has at least three minutes of "Oh and then they fought Jerid and co. in space I guess."
>I'm only finishing this because at this point why not?
I know the feeling. If this wasn't Gundam, I probably would've dropped it already.
It's just such a wet fart.
> I though we are old enough to actual want "plot" in our shows now?
You said it yourself, though, anon: "plot".
There's all these pretensions to some amazing plot or intriguing characters, but they all fall short. This show is sort of making me understand what it was like to be on the other side of the G-Reco threads.
I don't know why I bother visiting these threads, honestly. I know I'll only add negativity for those scant few who earnestly enjoy it. I guess there's just a part of me that hopes it could become something better.
You are missing the point. An episode breather would be fine. After a large battle a small break in the action would be cool and it could be used to advance the plot and develop the characters. IBO has shit plot, shit characters and shit fights. The battles we have gotten are essentially slideshows and never large. The plot isn't good or very well developed so taking 3 whole episodes off from fighting to try and advance it is stupid. How far as the plot advanced in these 3 episodes? Not very. We just spent a whole episode about a character they killed off. Fumitan should have been developed over multiple episodes. Instead they shove her motives into the last leg of the show and expect people to care. Most of the characters have literally been standing around this whole arc. The cast is so big that they could never get everybody enough screentime. Harem master and his bitches are useless. They don't do shit.
>ow far as the plot advanced in these 3 episodes? Not very. We just spent a whole episode about a character they killed off
This is very true. So little can happen in an episode but then they insert one big thing (usually towards the end as a shocking what will happen next) so people feel stuff happened. And this is what people that like the show focus on, it's like they forget 20 minutes of fuck all to focus on 4 minute of stuff kind of happening. I've actually started watching the show while i browse
tumblrand it is easy to watch for it as you miss the shit animation and people repeating they must go do the thing now.
>Harem master and his bitches are useless. They don't do shit.
They were the worst addition to the story. All its added is plot convenience. We'll never get to see orga and pals explore or learn about the world they're in or even themselves because there's always either naze or the blonde milf to explain everything.
I feel you so much dude. Went on reddit to see what they thought and everyone is bumsucking the new episode praising it for being so sad whilst ignoring how shitty the writing is.
I then posted the thing about IBO being a show without mechs and got this autist's response
(User is 'Smoothidiot')
>The focus is on the characters, not the Mobile Suits, as it should be.
Speaks for itself really, only a few people were sane and saying how shit this series has become
People are really stupid. There has been no character development or world building, only flying through space with no reason.
>Not the Mobile Suits
HOLY SHIT, Gundam is a platform to sell toys.
The fuck are you talking about? How much of the world has been built? Where is our development? How much do we know about Mars, Earth and the colonies that we didn't know from the start?
>That didn't happen. Zeta is one of the most MotW Gundams ever. Every episode has at least three minutes of "Oh and then they fought Jerid and co. in space I guess."
All I remember was that Bright was in it. It was many years ago, and obviously a bored kid wasn't going to remember any details.
ZZ was an example of world building. It explored multiple colonies and various parts of Earth. Unlike 90% of mech shows they actually went to Africa instead of just Japan, Europe and America. I always thought that was nice. What was even nicer was that there were black pilots in Africa. IBO's Africa branch literally was all blond haired white guys when they were shown.
Yeah anon i dislike IBO because it's popular and Turn A is my favorite Gundam because it's obscure.
How about you just try to defend your points instead of just trying to validate your taste
Now consider how much of the exposition has been revealed by characters vocalizing or confirming information they should already know.
>Alaya-Vijnana system? You mean the...
>Calamity War? You mean the war that happened 300 years ago and led to the creation of Gjallarhorn...
Repeat as necessary whenever the audience needs a new info dump.
I don't give a shit what you like or dislike, I'm talking about /m/ as a whole.
You think /m/ doesn't suck Turn A and G-Reco's dicks? You think /m/ doesn't love shitting all over 0079, Zeta, Wing, SEED, SEED Destiny, 00, Unicorn, and IBO? Maybe you should hang around here for more than a week.
Oh so it's just a coincidence that two of the least successful Gundam series (not counting obscure shit, although SEED Astray is pretty popular too) are two of the most popular on /m/, and all of the popular Gundam series are unpopular on /m/. Purely coincidence, eh?
>implying it's not going to be constant action for the rest of the season
We'll get one shoddily-animated ten minute long battle next episode followed by three episodes of talking heads then another shoddily-animated ten minute battle, just like it has been for the entire series so far.
Do you also complain that there are people who like Kurosawa more than Michael Bay?
Nah, I complain when somebody says that Nymphomaniac is their favorite movie because of how smart it is while they then proceed to shit on any and all popular movies for being 'inferior'.
Nah, that's just generally how shit goes here on /m/.
People will be having a discussion, then somebody forces the topic to be about an overhyped mediocre "2smart4u" work by a 'genius', and they then proceed to shit on whatever is doing better.
People are spoiled for action.
I think even Gasaraki outdoes IBO in total battle averages. Gasaraki, the definitive slow burning mecha anime, is more action packed than IBO. That's some bullshit ain't it?
>Calamity War 300 years ago
>All the armies in the world being absorbed by Gjallahorn
>Nations are now useless, so they put up four economic blocs
>Gjallahorn keeps the status quo for centuries, repressing any form of protest
>The area close to Earth is called the Earth Sphere and is guarded by the elite Gjallahorn army
>The area beyond is called the Outer Sphere and it's a lawless area where space yakuza such as Teiwaz have their way.
>The clusters of debris in-between the Sphere is populated by space pirates, that's why no-one can get through unless they're Gjallahorn or sponsorised by Teiwaz
>Mars has been terraformed and serves as a giant factory for Earth.
>The planet is divided in several regions which are tied to a single economic block from Earth.
>Everything is supervised by the local Gjallahorn but theiur are corrupt and incomptetent
>The Chryse region is on the verge of getting independance if Kudelia Aina Bernstein, daugter of the Prime Minister, get an audience with Arbrau's leader
>Gjallahorn, whose purpose is to maintain the status quo for eternity, doesn't want this
>But some people inside and outside Gjallaorn are plotting to shake the entire system
>Kudelia chose to travel to Earth with a PMC from Chryse, but it was disbanded after a skimrish with Gjallahorn and is now run by former child soldiers under the name "Tekkadan"
>Tekkadan leader wants to create an Outer Heaven for child soldiers ala Big Boss from MGS
>Tekkadan also got its hands on a special weapon from the Calamity War called the Gundam Barbatos
>This Mobile uit ois compatible with a special device called Alana-Vijana which enhance the pilot capabilities and actually explains why he's so much better than other Mobile Suits
It may not be Tolkien's level of worldbuiding but it is nontheless. at least it makes way more sense than G-Reco's space elevator being worshipped by faggots.
Also remember than most of UC's worldbuilding was done after the original 0079 broadcast.
>an extra set of supports on its back
Oddly placed wings.
>Mika and his 2 hot lady friends have accidentally boarded a gay orphan space cruise! But everything changes when michael jackson shows up with his harem, and then the whole gang is chased by the pedophile police! Tune in each week to see them putz around in space, cook potatoes, and tell sad stories.
>Guest Starring: Deactivated robots in hangars!
Not the same guy, but G-Reco's worldbuilding is far better. Almost everything you listed in your post you learn within like the first 5 episodes. G-Reco slowly reveals the world as the plot moves along.
It was pretty cool but it bugged me how a lot of it was just WATER WATER WATER like a typical gundam setting. Reco is on my rewatch list though so it's not fair to bitch too much.
IBO is like your life where it starts off with potential and then you just end up sitting in the same room all the time talking to the same idiots about how hard and bad everything is and the robots just sit there next to you not moving
>IBO is like your life where it starts off with potential and then you just end up sitting in the same room all the time talking to the same idiots about how hard and bad everything is and the robots just sit there next to you not moving
It sort of explains why the original Gundam as Gundam Seed use the "ship gets chased across the planet and hunted" formula. It justifies a fight every episode.
>mfw it can transform
>It sort of explains why the original Gundam as Gundam Seed use the "ship gets chased across the planet and hunted" formula. It justifies a fight every episode.
they also used the constant battles for character development, mika has gotten fucking none we barely even know the kid
compare this to amuro or kira where they're going crazy at this point in the show from the pressure of war
I love mika he's completely chill until you threaten one of his friends and he's not edgy about killing people, he just does it. Shame he has had the least character development of any character on his own show
I like how the hidden face looks like the Graze Kai's head.
>this,I don't know why people are complaining since we rarely get unique looking gundams like this too often.
It's because it's a unique-looking gundam.
People don't hate the new ending. They hate that it replaced an amazing song that fit the show. Think about it. Fumitan's death would have been way better if set to Orphans Namida. I like the new ending but it doesn't compare to the first.
>at least it makes way more sense than G-Reco's space elevator being worshipped by faggots.
But that works so much better because of how it all links up nicely. The elevator gets the batteries which is a prime source of energy. Aida at the start is concerned out this monopoly, as does her country. The tower supplying stuff is used to enforce Su-Cordism by the ability to cut people off from power. This is from the top enforced by the moonrace who mediate the batteries travel which gave them power over the earth but wish to come down to earth which would completely change the tower supply system. And then at the very top there is the Venus Globe who are the ones to enforce this system for real, but through their isolation some think they do not deserve it assuming humans are the same as they were hundreds of years ago.
On one point all of them link up nicely and form a core part of the story, it makes it feel real. IBO doesn't do this and the little of what we have learnt in IBO is just stuff we were told and it is left at that. Worse some bits end up end up feeling lazy logically. Kudelia is a prominent figure of a independence movement and a moron with no self confidence. How did they get Barbatos and why were they just using such a thing as a generator? because. What information did the revolutionaries actually get on Kudelia as some seem able to recognise her while others have zero idea? they just did.
IBO has a very bare back bone of a story that just about caries it, it does not feel fleshed out of living
>how a lot of it was just WATER WATER WATER like a typical gundam setting
That is because water is important for Tomino. You expect people to be able to live in space without oceans? Good luck with that.
>It may not be Tolkien's level of worldbuiding but it is nontheless. at least it makes way more sense than G-Reco's space elevator being worshipped by faggots.
That at least made sense as an immunization-strategy against people blowing Earth's lifeline up for laughs.
its not the world its the way everything in it has been presented to us thats the problem. its THE problem with this show. The world the characters, it all had potential but they squandered it
Its like okada gave a brief outline of her story to the other writers and then just fucked off leaving the other writers to work out what to do with it
Except nothing suggests that. I don't know where you are getting the possibility is high from. Sounds like wishful thinking. Gundam series rarely get second series. Only the main UC line, BF and SEED got sequels. 00 and Wing got movies. IBO is nowhere near as popular as any of those shows.
I was also going to add that BF is cheaper to make, but I'm really not sure. IBO is being pushed so hard you'd think it would have a good budget but it looks awful a good amount of time and has barely any fights. I know money =/= quality but a good budget has got to help in some regard
But BF's gunpla was cheaper as it partly used old parts and some of the new stuff was used in later kits. IBO tried to do the shared frame stuff etc but it just didn't work with the designs, even from Guison to rebake it is all different parts
Here's the problem with people shitting on IBO
> They compare it to series that start in the middle of a conflict while IBO hasn't even started one
> They compare it to series they marathoned so they forget they had their pacing issues
I marathoned it 1-13. I had a lot of fun. Everyone except for Kudelia is very likeable, the soundtrack is best of all modern Gundam shows, fantastic Gundam designs. I am genuinely curios whats Mika's backstory and how Gjallahorn executes their plans.
none of this has been shown in a meaningful or interesting way though, hell the majority of it isnt even shown. We only know the majority of these things because the characters tell us about them.
>They compare it to series that start in the middle of a conflict while IBO hasn't even started one
>They compare it to series they marathoned so they forget they had their pacing issues
what do either of these have to do with IBO?
> Shows oppression by Gjallahorn outside of Mars
> Establishes relationship between Mika and Atra
> Humanizes McGillis, Biscuit and Akihiro by establishing unique character arc
> Finishes Fumitan character arc
naw it's doing ok. kudelia is still a shit tho.
> I marathoned it 1-13. I had a lot of fun.
Same here, couldn't wait to see what will happen next. But then I came back to /m/ and episode-per-week format. Suddenly, IBO doesn't look that good any more.
but youre essentially saying people don't like it because they can't judge it on its own merits and now you're saying that IBO is good because at least it supposedly
in your opinion which is shit btwdoes something better than previous series
>Shows oppression by Gjallahorn outside of Mars
You mean tells. We never get to see people living through there oppression. In fact those workers have okay clean environments and even technology like tablets. They also seem pretty free to do as they want
> Establishes relationship between Mika and Atra
That was established when she was introduced, and hasn't gone any further
>Humanizes McGillis, Biscuit and Akihiro
How? Char has done fuck all but look talk to a loli and give suspicious looks. Biscuit and Guts had secret brothers both come out of no where just after the character mentions them for the first time, then these brothers both turn out to be evil and then when reasoned with both go crazy. Gut's was especially bad as all he did was repeat muh debris despite us never seeing him treated worse than the rest at CGS, even the characters were sick of him doing it.
>Finishes Fumitan character arc
You mean have 90% of it squished into two flash backs that still don't make her fleshed out. We now know she was poor and she didn't like Kudelia but also did. Kudelia didn't have to change at all for her to want to betray and go back and save her. Terrible arc
wing i haven't seen. 0079 i may give you for the first quarter, but whats wrong with turn a's pacing? or are you one of those people that thinks it only got good when they got to space
also i dont really think pacing is what people are complaining about IBO for
People do complain about the pacing but it is because there is so little content to fill what we get. They could easily make a show like this work but with some scenes, the whole pirate arc feeling like filler and especially with the repeated exposition it feels like something which could easily be condensed
They don't though. IBO has extremely little content stretched across a huge amount of episodes. It's not bad because it moves slow; it's bad because barely anything develops: characterization, plot, etc.
All 3 series that you named establish far more in the same timespan than IBO.
why did they waste budget on a second OP and ED when there were perfectly fine ones already.
>Bloody Sunday or Red Sunday is the name given to the events of Sunday, 22 January 1905 in St Petersburg, Russia, when unarmed demonstrators led by Father Georgy Gapon were fired upon by soldiers of the Imperial Guard as they marched towards the Winter Palace to present a petition to Tsar Nicholas II of Russia.
>Gundam IBO episode 16: As the Workers' Union begin their demonstration against the Dort Company, Orga and his team go search for Kudelia, who has run off to get answers from Fumitan. The demonstration becomes deadly when Gjallarhorn forces intervene and Kudelia finds herself involved with the Union.
We Revolution Now
The events aren't similar though. The Russian protesters didn't role up with fucking tanks, there wasn't any stage explosion to open fire, they just didn't give a fuck and wanted them to go away and they didn't have some stupid girl pulled in to be their leader
>we have Gundam fans complaining that there isn't enough giant robots
Let's go back a year to people complaining about how the original series had to shoe-horn a fight into just about every episode to satisfy the ROBOT ACTION part of the show, even when it was fucking stupid and amounted to nothing.

Maybe, just maybe, for once Sunrise tries to avert their whole "shit 2nd season" stigma.
Maybe that's why we got such a really stale beginning. But who the fuck am kidding.
00 S2 is perfectly fine. For now, at least.
No it is cheaper to make a kit if you can reuse some of an existing on or have a plan to reuse it later. More cost effective may be a better term. IBO uses new parts and has failed to reuse a high number of shared ones outside the Graze family (which in all fairness is like 6 kits now not counting p bandai).
Being a Gyoubu grunt design is suffering
It seems more likely she was turned later, the question is why exactly? Did she grow to hate Kudelia? But she was trying to help the poor since she was little, of course when a little kid she makes mistakes but that is normal and you should try to help and mold her. Surely Kudelia would continue these activities and learn which Fumi would see.
Maybe she somehow learnt nothing over at least ten years, she hated her enough to agree for her to die? I can see get annoyed at this person not learning but agreeing to help kill seems a bit far. Then there is the issue of what exactly turned her back? Kudelia hasn't learnt anything over the series so if she was fine with killing then why not now?
it actually looks good though. what a waste
Even the kimaris is going to job.
The preview speech sounds like a eulogy for gaelio
Looks like this time it'll have its feet
Exactly. Right now we have to believe she was a ten-year plant or hated Kudelia (besides muh ign'ant eyes, obviously she wanted to change Kudelia not kill her) enough to kill her. So far we know that she was poor (so she secretly liked the idea of revolution), she's been with Kudelia forever, and she had reason to betray her (because she secretly hated the idea of revolution??). Great character arc guys, we really got a great view of what kind of person she is!
At least we were given a tiny bit more on Kudelia's past and reasoning. Not that it will change anything.
>because she secretly hated the idea of revolution??
Making her a martyr was meant to get the revolution going (kudelia was also doing that being alive but anyway), so maybe she was pro
But this plan played into fan mans hands giving him power, so maybe not?
But maybe she didn't care and needed a revolution at any cost?
Then by the end maybe she thinks kudelia can do it herself or maybe she has given up on it?
Her character is just so nothing the whole bit just doesn't really work
But they keep trying to martyr her in order to crack down with Gjallerhorn so that would be playing right into their hands. I guess if you were really lazy you could say that the riots were enough and not shoot Kudelia and hope she doesn't unite workers to make them stronger because of the massacre. It's not like that could bite them in the ass.
Just sample runner out of box, but the guy hasn't even build it
>Show slums a couple of times and mention they exist
>long lost brother introduced then killed immediately
>long lost brother introduced and then crushed immediately
>Fumitan flash back and then killed in the most contrived and predictable way possible immediately
The world building and characterization are shit. Don't pretend otherwise.
This is operating under the assumption that her audience is retarded, right? She has no grasp of character interactions or world building, and her drama is horrible.
At least butcher is capable of writing something good. I really hope he doesn't fuck up Concrete Revolutio.
He won't write much episodes, apparently. I'm more concerned over Mizushima keeping Aikawa in check.
So, how long until >>13800885 dies? At this rate characters might systematically die. I mean, if the show insists on being repetitive on every level. On an unrelated note, non-Gundam Guts' series is about to get delayed yet again, due to the new Idolmaster.
Honestly I don't even think he'll die. Maybe during the last battle if anything. His character arc (as pathetic as it was) is over, and he's not part of any shitty love triangles. As far as Okada is concerned, he may as well not exist.
Admittedly, as toothless as the show is, I suspect no one noteworthy will die at this point. Not even Naze and the haremettes. If anyone will get killed on a regular basis, it'll obviously be more glorified blockades trying to be characters-of-the-week.
No biggie, he's only one of a few scriptwriters for CR anyway. He doesn't even have head writer position this time, unlike Aikawa (which, again, is the actual reason for concern).
>w-wha- wait! You said i'd be important!
>You said i'd get a ki---BOOOOOM
thats what you get for not being a graze in IBO.
its also seems to be getting shot by grazes in the preview as well which is pretty sad
He was in charge of series composition nitwit
Was just a scriptwriter
PP was already shit while he was on.
This is all irrelevant since CR is Aikawa's baby and Butcher is only an episode's writer in S2.
-H:18m(same as Gusion), W:35.1t(9.3t lighter)
-While the original Gusion was a heavy armored high output MS for close combat, the Rebake due to its variable high sensitivity head sensor can play long range support or shorter range combat.
-Backpack has subarms made of diverted Graze arms
-It diverted the rear binder armor of the original Gusion and it can be used as shield, leaving vestiges of its old appearance boating high defensive power.
-An example of the Gundam Frame versatility
-Long Range Rifle: improved by Teiwaz technicians, added scope, huge accuracy improvement
-The sub arms have more or less the same output of the main ones and shoot 120mm Rifles with great accuracy.
-Because the original Gusion was too heavy for under gravity action it was refurbished and regained its versatility. Kudal didn't use AV System but Akihiro will use it to bring about its true potential.
-H: 18.9m(1m more), W:31.2t(3t more).
-It's pink because they found red nanolaminate paint with the Brewers and combined it with their cheap white paint.
-Short Rifle: lower range and accuracy, but ideal for close combat in conjunction with the Battle Axe
-Hyakuren parts added weight but also added more armor.
-The coloring and head nose art are eye catching.
-Teiwaz added connectors for the Kutan
>-An example of the Gundam Frame versatility
Washio's the designer, right?
Interesting that one Gundam incorporate parts from three factions (and three different designers if we're going meta). Kinda wished they put in parts from Teiwaz's MS too.

So this is the first time they actually tried to justify the pink... Except the pilot is a guy.
I actually had to give Gundam Seed credit for having mobilesuit colours linked to phase shift. Basically Red is heavy defence and suited for melee, Green is low defence to maximise power for weapons thus best suited for ranged units, and Blue is intermediary. And this in a single stroke justified the traditional Gundam colour scheme. A great idea that wasn't explored much.
I guess I'm like 80% snapfag. When I'm not feeling lazy, I will paint in details, panel line, seam weld etc.. but Rebake looks fucking amazing that I'm getting off my fat ass to work on detailing it.
Every time they showed them as a group I fully expected Orga to catch on and be like "oh shit, quick lets hide our jackets while we can.
Not like anybody would recognize them without the logo stamped on the back, seeing as how nobody could even recognize Kudelia anyway.
Are you one of those retards who pretends that you have some deeper understand of her and them posts quotes from her that are extremely surface level to you can do mental gymnastics until you actually think that's what the story was building up to, even though the fucking writer said it was changed at the end?
How does the ending not fit Homura's character given that she previously went through like 100 time loops all for the sake of Madoka? At the end of the TV series, she says that she will keep fighting on.
I don't like the ending because it was garbage that removed any sense of closure or tension (being a god or deity means nothing now) was blatantly a last second rewrite to allow for a sequel (the movie was very clearly a final goodbye for the girls where they were making peace with everything) and because it took Homura from being sympathetic and trying to save her friend, and made her into an absolutely insane yandere monster who went from "I want to help" to possessive cunt.
The fact that the writer said "Yeah, I had it all written this way but then Shinbo twisted my arm and no we're making a sequel" automatically invalidates any of the bullshit "W-Well you just don't understand Homura! The ending was totally sensible!" bullshit that you retards pedal.
The ending being changed doesn't validate your argument in any way at all. Shinbo is the director; he's well within his rights to change the script if he likes. Just because the script was changed doesn't invalidate the writing; judge it on its own merits, not the circumstances surrounding it.
>I don't like the ending because it was garbage that removed any sense of closure or tension
I don't understand. There amount of closure here is about the same as the original TV series's ending and that was a very good ending to franchise as it was. No tension? The ending implies possible conflict between Homura and Madoka. How is that not tension?
>the movie was very clearly a final goodbye for the girls where they were making peace with everything
The characters all made peace at the end of the TV series. The movie didn't expand on anyone's character arcs other than Homura which is fine because she was the only one who still had room for development.
>Homura from being sympathetic and trying to save her friend, and made her into an absolutely insane yandere monster who went from "I want to help" to possessive cunt.
It's called character development. I wouldn't say that she's an "insane yandere monster" or anything, but she is certainly less sympathetic after the events of Rebellion. However, what she did makes perfect sense. Homura could never let go of Madoka hence why she pulled her personality out of the god form. What's nonsensical about the ending?
>The ending being changed doesn't validate your argument in any way at all.
>The director is not allowed to have creative control of his project?
Director is not the same as writer. I know the original ending was good because it was in line with what was built up, and everything else Butcher wrote for the series was good. I am judging on it's own merits, and the ending was shit. Literally everything you said in your wall of text was wrong. Every single sentence.
>I know the original ending was good because it was in line with what was built up
Wait, do we actually know any details about what the original ending was? I thought all we knew was that they changed it.
>Literally everything you said in your wall of text was wrong. Every single sentence.
Why do you refuse to elaborate?

>Why do you refuse to elaborate?
There was no closure, as it was sequel bait, it by definition can't be closure. There's no tension because all the buildup of becoming a Goddess, and everything about the incubators was shown to be able to be undone at the drop of a hat, so now any situation can be solved by some asspull because the plot needs it, hence no more tension. Plots that can be moved "because we need to the story to go this way" with no regard to what was previously established at all are shit. Some of the characters made peace in the TV series. The movie gave Kyoko and Mami more time and a chance to interact with everyone that they didn't have before, and it let everyone get on the same page about leaving the mortal world. Character development isn't inherently good when they run them into the ground. She literally became Satan, there's no way that isn't "insane yandere monster", and she draws no sympathy from the audience. What she did made no sense, because she wasn't losing Madoka. She was going to go join them in lesbian Valhalla for eternity, but they took her from "I want to be with her" to "I want to posses her in my little box". It was completely nonsensical.
The movie started as a cool series of fights, comedy and fanservice while giving the characters time to make peace with thier place in the universe followed by them all moving on and keeping the incubators at bay, thus ending the story. Instead, Shinbo decided to shit all over everything for the purpose of sequel bait. It was shit and you're an idiot for pretending it was properly built up when the guy who wrote the fucking story said that wasn't his plan and that it was changed.
The ending is a much of a "sequel bait" as the TV series ending. If they do make new movies that are shit, then whatever. I fully expected Rebellion to be just a cash in, but I was pretty pleasantly surprised. But regardless, just because not every single plot thread is closed does not make the ending sequel bait.
Are you calling Homura becoming a goddess an asspull? That's not correct. Homura herself also experienced multiple timelines and is aware of Madokami's existence meaning that she has more threads of fate surrounding her. During the creation of a soul gem and the transformation of a soul gem to a witch, a huge amount of energy is released as noted previously. This means that Homura can unleash massive amounts of energy when her soul gem became fully tainted except that she did not become a conventional witch since the emotion was love not despair. Since she has knowledge of Madoka's personality and the massive amount of energy, she is able to separate Madoka from Madokami and elevate herself to a higher plane of existence as well.
>lesbian Valhalla for eternity
This is literally just conjecture. There is no elaboration on what happens to the magical girls after Madokami takes them at any point in time.
>It was shit and you're an idiot for pretending it was properly built up when the guy who wrote the fucking story said that wasn't his plan and that it was changed.
The ending that we got properly fits into the narrative previously established and takes the plot into new territory without being hamfisted and develops Homura. It sounds like you just wanted a nonconsequential movie where Homura dies at the end and everyone goes home. While not bad, I much prefer what we actually got.
>The ending is a much of a "sequel bait" as the TV series ending
First off, no. Second, we're not talking about the TV series, we're talking about the movie. The movie is sequel bait, and therefore can not have closure.
>just because not every single plot thread is closed does not make the ending sequel bait.
I'm going to stop now because you're clearly retarded if you actually believe anything you just typed.
>The ending that we got properly fits into the narrative previously established
Writer was building up to something else entirely, as seen by fans with a brain and as stated by the writer. You are objectively wrong. There's no grey area here. He literally did not write the series and movie to build up to that. It was not the proper fit to the narrative, and I don't know where you delusion idiots who thought it was good sprung up from.
>Since she has knowledge of Madoka's personality and the massive amount of energy, she is able to separate Madoka from Madokami and elevate herself to a higher plane of existence as well.
Not him, but I hope you realize that everything you wrote here reads like bad fanfic from a 14 year old and only serves to prove his point that it was retarded and allows for any number of contrived bullshit plot devices to happen. Everything you said is complete conjecture that you pulled out of your ass to justify that retarded scene.
>The movie is sequel bait, and therefore can not have closure.
>I'm going to stop now because you're clearly retarded if you actually believe anything you just typed.
Do you consider any movie with an open-ish ending as "sequel bait?"
>You are objectively wrong. There's no grey area here. He literally did not write the series and movie to build up to that.
That's not how it works.
Everything I said was based on stuff QB had established. Just because not everything is spelled out for you explicitly in dialogue does not make it a leap of logic.
Another victim of the space rat scourge.
