Perfect description of IBO. Even with AGE it felt like they actually tried to make it grandiose, generation spanning story, even if they failed. I could see what they wanted to do with Flit, with Asemu, and with Kio and how they wanted to show to feel, but with IBO I genuinely don't feel like they're trying at all.

I hope this isn't true because that is some SEED tier studio drama in the background,I really wanted to enjoy IBO and I kinda have, but this thread made me realize what was missing, the enthusiasm and genuine effort of its creators.
Even with SEED, Destiny and especially age which were all mediocre or subpar, you could feel that whoever was behind it was at least having fun with the shows to some degree.
Age especially with its homages to the UC gundam series, but IBO has been feeling dead since we left mars.
I don't know wheather this is due to banrise suits interfering or mari realizing she's a cake, but I hope whoever's in charge throws some life into this final arc.
>>
>>13810524
>Same with fucking G-Reco.
But G-Reco was actually great.
>>
>>13810765

There is like 10 episodes left, wtf are you talking about? It will be rushed and the story will suck because of the terrible godawful pacing.

They should have made this two seasons and actually hired faggots who give a shit.
>>
>>13810738
That first one had something:

>16 episodes in
>The White Base had already descended to Earth
>In Zeta Amuro had already returned
>In ZZ Glemy had already appeared and done shit
>In V we had already gotten to space
>In G Devil had appeared
>In W Tallgeese was fighting Heavyarms
>In X we had dolphins
>In Seed the Archangel had descended and Kira had fucked Flay
>In Destiny Kira had returned, Athrun had returned and Shinn had went SEED. Junius 7 had happened
>In 00 The Trinities had appeared
>In AGE we were at Gen 2
>In BF we already had SBS vs WGF
>In IBO a pointless character dies

Adding to that: G-Reco had the revelation of two characters being long lost siblings and a war going on while Turn A had Queen Diana exploring Earth life, Corin's intro, and discovering old mobile suits. Man, IBO IS slow as fuck.
>>
So let me get this straight. Casuals didn't like G-Reco while the hardcore mecha/gundam community did. With their support, it went from a show Bandai thought wouldn't sell to a moderate success.

IBO doesn't appeal to kids, casuals or to hardcore mecha/gundam fans. The only thing it has going for it is it's popular outside of the country. And right now, it's flopping hard.

That about right?
>>
>>13810775

IBO is the opposite of G-Reco. It appeals to the causals and kids but is utterly hated by the hardcore mecha/gundam fans.

That's going a bit far. It appealed to more than western anime sites were making it seem but it wasn't getting to everyone. Over time it has more (I've seen a lot of people say I gave it a second chance and like it now) but Greco is best summed up as a minor success

IBO did appeal to some of the more hardcore etc but it has dropped off cause the show isn't that great, most going well it isn't that great BUT i like the suits and [insert character] is cool. I feels like a show that over the years it will lose credibility

Casuals fine. Give it time and it will appeal to the kids but it depends on how they end and the effort they put in it. As I said before, the opposite of G-Reco.

What does he's say in the tweet?
A couple of comments in the article mention it, but I couldn't make out what they were saying.

>>13810772
I just wonder what they plan to do if the lack of action has been taken into consideration. I mean they only have 10 episodes to finish this and cramming in more action scenes is really going to fuck with the pacing. I imagine it will only make things worse overall, I mean i think really the problem isn't so much the amount of battles its that the battles that have happened have been generally pretty poor. I mean the last battle had another gundam in it. But all that happens was grunts running straight into mikas mace and then the fusion running the whole fight while its pilot screams for backup. Not even the suits distraction was satisfying, the final moments were just stills basically
>>
>>13810818
Assuming that we're not getting a s2, it's already half over. I think it appealing to kids has long since passed.
>>
>>13810820

It is very simple, if they just hired someone who can actually write a story and with a good plot and then hire someone else to do good directing, this would have been great.

Instead they pushed the same old "orphan" angle we have been hammered to death and stretched out the character's personalities and struggle way to far. They should have maintained the pacing they had up to episode 5 and included more space battles, incorporated two sides of a war with the ophans stuck in the middle and developed tension.

This is so far removed from the usual Gundam, that one has to wonder what they were smoking writing this plot. Clearly people of actual talent were not hired to make this or rather, people with motivation to make something good weren't in tis project at all.
>>
>>13810820
More so what will it do to the budget? They clearly a not able to get good looking actions scenes when they are sparse later episodes will just have more by nature

IBO also just lacks MS moving in general. If you think about it having them move about and just be used for mundane stuff was common and gave some character, even 0079 managed this. It helped give them more personality and make them feel like a part of the world, they were a tool used all over not just some side thing. IBO feels more hampered by being a mech show.

>the battles that have happened have been generally pretty poor.
This is a problem and something I've not been able to put my finger on what exactly they do wrong. Something about the fights just doesn't feel proper, they feel like pieces that float doing nothing until you get a clash and a still. It would sort of be okay if the imagery was good but only the first two fights had anything nice.
>>
>>13810765
>SEED tier
Honestly even if you hate SEED the same thing doesn't apply to it because Fukuda is really passionate about it
>>
>>13810774
>Man, IBO IS slow as fuck.

fucking called it, they are using 2 episodes worth of screen time to show something that can be quickly explained in less than half an episode of time in any other gundam shows back in ep 2-3.

Which is really a shame because after dropping IBO for a few weeks and then picking it up back again I am starting to like it even with its cliches, I hope they really start to pick their shit up but I doubt that will actually happen.
>>
>>13810859
It like with AZ as well. There was a lot of passion put in, they just had no fucking idea what they were doing.

IBO they just don't seem to care that much about what they are doing. They just throw in lazy tropes that will snag some of the otaku masses, throw in a kid being hit to be "dark" and call it a day
>>
>>13810800
>minor
It was the best selling TV mecha anime from last year beating out critical darling Fafner Exodus and overhyped garbage A/Z and we do know through Derringer that the Gunpla sold well, AGE set the benchmark to what is considered a failure in this franchise and as long as you're above that you're doing fine.
>>
>>13810857
I don't think space really works with their whole solid weapons vibe. And that stuff really requires skill to get across the right sense of weight and motion that ibis more physical battles require. They did alright on Earth but even then the barbatos was jumping and flipping and twirling its mace too much.
Was it cranks death where Mika tosses his mace and crank deflects it with an axe as if it was a tennis ball only for Mika to catch it again and pile bunker him. It was a really confusing scene and I had to rewatch it to work out what had actually happened
>>
>>13810875
>IBO they just don't seem to care that much about what they are doing. They just throw in lazy tropes that will snag some of the otaku masses, throw in a kid being hit to be "dark" and call it a day

They really pussy out when it comes to death. Like that kid from the first episode or that fucking massacre last week. Fucking show this stuff so that it leaves an impression on us.

Fuck, even SEED got this right.
>>
They should have taken a 3 year break after Reco, got a solid team in place and then made IBO imho. Why rush this out? Clearly there is pressure on the staff to produce this because the quality has taken a nosedive. Fucking hell, we have the prequel, Thunderbolt and IBO wrapping up this year.....there is simply too much Gundam.

I don't hate SEED,I actually kinda like it, but I acknowledge that the series had many issues with its production

I get this feeling too especially during the first 10-something episodes, I thought we were getting a 00 with darker themes but instead everything is lightly touched upon and nothing is fleshed out.

>>13810903
Also this, if they rest for a year or so and/or poured the budget of Thunderbolt into IBO maybe it would actually turned out to be good, its probably a safe bet to blame the suits.

I can do but you need someone who is proper precise with it. It is the sort of thing that calls for "realistic" physics, stuff like pieces breaking off and their speed carrying enough to kill

>even then the barbatos was jumping and flipping and twirling its mace too much.
That is a big issue in general. It has next to no sense of scale or positioning. Especially with space fights you want good anchor points so you generally know who is commig from where, but in IBO it almost feels like when you enter a random battle in a RPG

What we know is that IBO was created back when the 00 movie was made. It sat on the shelf a long time. Why? We don't know. I personally feel that it aired the year Wing turned 20 for a reason. Wing was supposed to get something but the novel was dragging along so they had to put something else out. Kind of like Saint Seiya Omega and Digimon Xros Wars.
>>
>>13810920
Let me use enthusiastic instead,Fukada handled SEED poorly, but you can tell his vision for it was grand just from the setting and lore created for it alone.

Over saturation and lack of planning is what is making these series not live up to their full potential.

Fukuda does have passion. He's shit but he cares about his work. He vehemently defends it stuff on Twitter and defended SEED Destiny for a long time.

>>13810950
My theory is with 00 success but coming to a close they meant to emulate the same thing. Development hell can happen for a lot of reasons but with other projects doing well they didn't have to worry really. But now gundam is doing pretty outside AGE and Try so they want to keep capitalising on that. Seeing as both failures were aimed young they may have decided teen + young adult was the place to go.

Problem is then no one cares about the project at that point, especially Okada who was working on upcoming shows. The studio is also likely a bit tired and when you lack a leader with passion in that situation no one is going to play their A game
>>
>>13810971
He made it private for a while but now it's public again

>>13810946
We don't know how much Turn A sold back then since Oricon didn't release sales data until 2008, everything is really guesstimates and after 2008 re-release numbers. It very much failed when it was initially released but grew a much better reception as it went on which lead to higher sales but it was still dubbed a failure back then.

Show would have been a lot of better if the fucking orphans acted like orphans. Numb to the pain, pissed off at the world, acted emo and weren't all cheery normal teens who weren't abused on a regular basis.

That's just how things are. I'm going to be an even bigger recofag and say a lot of viewers aren't very good at consuming media, they need this basic even if it is meant to be a metaphor someone has to explain it in show.

This is why you see lost of dumb posts on sites where it goes all "look at how smart the show is cause this character looked unhappy when someone said stuff. It is so deep and easy to miss" when that is basic story telling which should be expected

This annoys the fuck out of me. Especially the little kids that act all happy and cheerful, those gremlins should be flinching any time and adult moves. Hell none of them are even injured. It's one time I wouldn't mind the writing being a bit edgy as it'd make sense in context

This also plays into how badly Kudelia was used. She can show how she is discounted from poor life but she should also show how discounted their lives are. The school scenes would have been perfect for this

From all the interviews I've seen, Fukuda was stoked to be working on Gundam. His goal was to bring Gundam back to it's roots, to shows like Combattler V, but people reigned him in and explained Gundam had to be a war story.

Orphans forced to do slave labour in the hot sun and potentially be blown up from land mines? Ya I think they should be a little more fucked up.

I wouldn't be so sure. I've seen a decent amount of Barbatos and standard graze but not much else. I also don't think they'll do as well selling recolours to an older audiences as many of those will be displaying them so need to account for space and many will do customs so buy the cheaper versions.

Younger audiences will buy something cause it was cool on tv, but there are barely any battles and they look bad

>That's just how things are. I'm going to be an even bigger recofag and say a lot of viewers aren't very good at consuming media, they need this basic even if it is meant to be a metaphor someone has to explain it in show.

the problem is that anime fans in general and mecha fans in particular are famously monomanaiacal in their interests

they only consume a very narrow band of world media, usually created by the same group of people in the same genre with the same tropes and same narrative failings

when was the last time you heard a gunota talk about a play they saw, or a poetry book they read, or a romance movie they watched? all they know is robots done by the same 8 directors under the same 4 production houses. They're so used to a very specific way a story is told that when something tries something new they don't know how to react, because its literally outside of every element of context they have for storytelling. they repeat the same generic, targetless complaints of "its bad" "lol quality" "so boring" because its something they can't codify inside their existing knowledge base and this fucking scares them.

IBO, G reco, et al all have significant things to complain about, like their treatment of women, questionable politics, and the like. But you know what? I can count on one hand I've seen those complaints on /m/, because the average poster is so utterly artistically illiterate that they literally cannot describe why they don't like something in their own words.

>>13811214
It's pretty telling that IBO was never able to maintain a general. Even though there were people who liked and like it never built up the same kind of mass support. Though this is due in part to IBO never really having a good meat to get into and discuss, the show is a puddle

And really it never did outside, it had a very small overly positive fanbase but it has been as much of a blip as [insert forgettable no name mech show]

I bashed G-Reco without watching it because I convinced myself it looked stupid and was just following the herd mentality of /m/.

Finished it today and it was a great series that is misunderstood. The concept of how it is hard to follow and the pacing problems are exaggerated imho.

I had to admit my sins on this board because I was treating people who genuinely liked the show like an ass. This is dead serious btw and not a troll. This is a series you need to give a chance and don't let its looks fool you. Anyone I offended I apologize and hope you have a good night.

Indeed. GBF had a pretty steady following here, we nearly got to 300 threads by the end iirc. That went so well that GBFT starting it back up was a natural, and for G-Reco, but where G-Reco's generals stayed pretty steady and generally chill, GBFT ones became the equivalent of everyone in that Zeon bar drowning their sorrows. Lot of disappointment and trolling and only the occasional fleck of hope.

I thought it was an improvement. Once the tournament started Fumina became a complete non-character. She would outright disappear during battles after dropping off the parts without ever being shown getting shot down, she would just be gone.

After that she actually displayed some emotion again and actually did things during the battles.

It was pretty brutal too, not that many people died in G-Reco but whenever someone did it was kinda fucked up. Rockpie curled up in the fetal position even just before the beam hit his MS.
One thing I liked about the show was the cockpit shots, some of them were kinda bad where it was just tilting or sliding around but in the 2nd half of the show the staff looked like they really nailed down what it's like to be in those things with it shaking, sounds of debris hitting the suit, reflections in helmet visors etc

RIP Muscles-chan. Your gains will not be forgotten.

What we are seeing is gundam burnout again, just like in the 90s. Sunrise and Bandai have crammed new gundams in one after the other every year since AGE with OVAs on top of it. We're getting tired and bored of Gundam, the staff is getting tired and bored of Gundam, and Sunrise is stretching itself thin trying to pump out new series so quickly. So after Four(?) years of continuous Gundam with only a few months break in between we end up with IBO. It's dull, uninspired, even teh staff doesn't seem to care too much, and only gets as much attention as it does because it's gundam and has a big name lead writer who by the sound of it doesn't care too much about the series either and is busy with other projects.

And I wouldn't doubt that there is another gundam on the way next fall.

Animation? Shit.

The Romance? If only they waited a couple of caps before she started noticing Mika, but no, they forced it since the beginning and it's shit.

The Action? Mika is so inexpressive that it kinda kills the mood a bit. The rest of the MS? They just fly around stuff while Mika kills people.

The plot? I'm not gonna complain about SoL because i enjoy that stuff if only because how bad is the other stuff is. The moment they got into the ship the series went downhill.

Because the generals for the first few episodes kept derailing into two retards fighting over G Reco making them impossible to maintain.

And GBF and Greco both had shitposting as well. They were able to maintain and even grow

Don't get me wrong I'm not defending the show. It's just easy to see why they didn't maintain when they were plagued with shitposting when the show was actually having stuff going on causing everyone to give up and then has been in a completely stagnated state since they went to space. How long ago did they even go into space? Feels like they've been up there for over half the series.
>>
>>13810270
He's saying that it's impossible to have exciting fights each episode like GBF. The intensity of the show will increase as they get closer to earth.

I guess this proves a couple of things. That the lack of fights are intentional and like a lot of people were saying, they hired Nagai and Okada to handle the character interactions since there is little mecha battles.
The other thing is that the end goal is earth, once they get there, the show will likely be over. So there is still hope that there won't be an S2.

ANN is considered a reliable news source and will back their coverage over blogs or /m/ threads. ANN mistranslated an article? Wiki will still back what ANN says, and ANN is the only place that covered G-Reco.

ANN's coverage of G-Reco was tailored to fit the "it's a flop" narrative, with all of it's coverage cherrypicked? Urobuchi praised the show when it finished and was never covered, but Otaking dismissing it after a few episodes was. Show gets praised in one of Japan's largest papers and it doesn't get a mention. They never even updated the sales numbers after the error.

In the end, they tell their readers G-Reco was a flop hated by everyone while Cross Ange was successful enough that it could get a sequel. And wikipedia will parrot that.

>>13813336
Clickbait. If their readers (not to mention staff) don't like G-Reco, why would they cover good things about it (other than journalistic integrity)? But if they make it and Tomino look like failures, people will line up to laugh at their expense.
>>
>>13813336
it gives them a chance to show potential sponsors why they should buy ads with the site and get the good reviews and positive coverage that comes with it
>>
>>13813345
>If their readers (not to mention staff) don't like G-Reco, why would they cover good things about it
That kind of creates a chicken or the egg problem. Also depends do they want clickbait that readers agree with or disagree with.

>>13813348
This makes sense but is also a bit of a conspiracy theory
>>
>>13813325
Damn
Gundam Boxsets can be like $200 and 0083 isn't that popular. This doesn't look good.
>>
>>13813336
They mistranslated a piece about Tomino and Attack on Titan, so I guess they want to follow up on the controversy by saying his latest show flopped horribly and was so bad he apologized for it.
>>
>>13813169
>The nip sales wiki numbers are a little different
Those are just BD, the other numbers are BD + DVD.
>>
>>13813455
>0083 isn't that popular

Maybe on /m/, in nipland 0083 is considered a masterpiece by many. It's going to sell +9k and IBO will do 7k first week.

>>13813462
It's not that, the japanese sales wiki doesn't acknowledge the updated oricon sales, and it's using the old numbers.
>>
>>13813470
So that's why it was included in DGWR over 08th MS Team or 0080.
>>

Moe went down, /m/ wasn't high on the priority list when it came to reuploading everything, lots of shitposting, megas and translations went in the bin

>>13811207
This is one hundred percent true. Mecha fans in general are monumentally sheltered as a result of concentrating on a medium where visual impact takes precedence over everything else. With nothing to compare it to but other mecha with the same failings you get people falling over themselves defending content rather than technique. For a lot of actual human beings out there, IBO involving child soldiers makes it deep, mature, and gritty, regardless of how they're actually handled. It doesn't even enter into the discussion.
>>
>>13811207
>IBO, G reco, et al all have significant things to complain about, like their treatment of women, questionable politics, and the like.

This seems a out of place with the rest of your statement and has more to do with the ideological views of the audience than their lack of exposure to varied media.

You're absolutely right about the lack of breadth held by typical nerd, though.

1.8. IBO's ratings have fallen into G-Reco's range.
>>
>>13811008

Still using the letter O when it's supposed to be a zero. Fail.
>>
>>13814576
Timeslots. G-Reco had a late night timeslot, where only people who stay up to absurd times can watch. Whereas IBO is in the late afternoon/evening, when more people can watch it.
>>
>>13814576
They better do something about it, at this rate the rating will be even more shittier than G-Reco.
>>
>>13811765
The Origin has been doing extremely well through, and before that was the enormous success of Unicorn. If Banrise isn't retarded then they'll see (or will have already seen) the writing on the wall and will make more UC OVAs and ONAs like Thunderbolt, which they already stated was an experiment to see how a Gundam ONA would go.
>>
>>13814600
I think AU Gundam will be dead for a while and we will probably see more UC stuff.

How has it been going, anyway? I mean, I know people here like it, but as we've been reminded more than enough times, we're not exactly indicative of the watermark for success.

I am calling it. I also bet they'll try and do a bringing gundam to the west better than other series, despite other ones not getting a dub recently apart from Origin
>>
>>13814669
Wikipedia will still say it was well-received and quote nothing but NA reviews.

So, how are the Japanese liking Bandai taking weapons from the suits and selling them separately in sets? I'll admit, it's a bit of a turnoff for me.

"Gundam Double Zero" just doesn't have that same ring to it.
Plus they actually say "Double O" even in japanese.
>>
>>13815716
Is this about that review ANN gave it that literally consisted of two paragraphs?
> Regild Century — Reconguista in G

> What it is: Humanity has entered a time of universal peace based on an anti-tech religion. One young man decides to pilot a mobile suit of mysterious origin, and changes his life forever.

> Worth Watching? No.

> Why: The storytelling is so confusing, it may take the entire series for you to figure out what's going on. Allegiances are constantly swapped, and nobody seems to have a clear motive for their actions. This feels like the sequel to a story that doesn't exist.

Cause like it or not, that counts as a review and is good enough for the reception section by wiki standards.

She also recommended against watching the following

IGLOO - Not required viewing
ZZ - "Poorly received due to the way it converts the dark drama of Zeta into hollow comedy in an effort to lighten the mood. Not available in outside of Japan, so it isn't a problem. "
F91 - Poor pacing
Victory - Doesn't fit into UC because we never heard about Zanscare before or after. Not related to Early UC
G-Savior - Bad pacing and plot
Wing - Poor pacing and weak plot. Endless Waltz gets a no because you need to see Wing first
Destiny: To dark and too light. No balance as the show is very inconsistent in tone.
Stargazer: Irrelevant and not available in the West.
00 - Confusing, unlikable characters and Deus Ex Machina plot points.
AGE - Didn't benefit from a game-like story.
>>
>>13814592
you mean Build Fighters and Build Fighters Try. Both of those have worse ratings than G-Reco

Note that this is also a site that recommended SEED based on the following:

"Viewers are in for a real treat, as Gundam Seed is not only hands down the best of the alternative timelines, but stands as one of the best Gundam titles period."
>>
>>13816111
>Viewers are in for a real treat, as Gundam Seed is not only hands down the best of the alternative timelines, but stands as one of the best Gundam titles period.
Not nowadays.

> Gundam Seed

> What it is: One young Coordinator chooses to ally himself with Earth instead of space. Follows the formula set up in Gundam Wing in which five attractive pilots generate a female audience.

> Worth Watching? Maybe.

> Why: SEED has many similarities to the original Mobile Suit Gundam, while bringing modern pacing to the table. However, it suffers from wooden dialogue and a failure to surpass the original. On the other hand, it boasts some of the best music in Gundam.

He's a member of the old guard anyways, he's naïve about Gundam's current quality consistency, in the last Gundam article of his I've seen.

He saw some episodes of 00 S1 and that was it. Not a guy who followed the whole thing through to its conclusion.

There should be an ultimate pastebin/graphic explaining all the details of how G-Reco isn't a critical and financial failure and how ANN pushed a false narrative, complete with what they mistranslated and what they didn't report on.

>>
>>13819299
Casual fans don't buy Gunpla.

>>13816160
I don't know, they seem more worth taking seriously than you.

>>13818788
Which is much like explaining to wannabe oldfags the same thing about Wing and G.
>>
>>13819310
That might be true for a traditional gundam show, but not this one.

Ibo's international reception is amazingly high

ibo is the show where casual anime fans or consumers who have never heard of gundam would buy gunpla

The barbatos hg has already sold more than the build burning or build strike in a smaller time window for the u.s.
>>
>>13819299
Yeah but it's still kinda fun to see the correlation between the core fan-bases from a crossed the pond.

That said the casuals will all but forget about it in like a year, or two's time, and no one will ever mention IBO again except in passing, or to shitpost about.

>>13819341
At least with G there's that clip from GTO to sum it up.

>>13819342
>more than the build burning or build strike
>the actual "serious" gundam sold more than a kit rehash made for the non-super-srs SHONEN gundam which constantly is more like a gundam homage combined with a toy commercial
Well fucking duh. That doesn't mean that IBO is actually received WELL. That just means that it's doing better than the bottom-of-the-barrel action show that technically is a love letter to the franchise fans without actually working very hard production-wise.

You're retarded.
>>
>>13819422
Do you even know who Derringer is?

>>13819342
How is the rest of the line doing? I'm sure Barbatos doing really well has you guys happy but is the rest of the line performing well?
>>
>>13810270
Is this the show with no robots?
>>
I'm just pondering, did the controversy of Mika capping his former bosses have an effect on the show's writing behind the scenes?

How long do we usually have to wait for behind the scenes details to emerge?
>>
>>13820494
Even before the IBO first aired there was talk about how Nagai and Okada had a lot friction with the rest of the staff.
>>
>>13820494
Even if it was the case, there would be no time to rewrite or redo animation. It would be a worse trainwreck than God eater.
