That's like the highest degree of dedication to the game, by making your opponent stronger so that you can enjoy the game more yourself. It could feel cheap and unrealistic, but it didn't for her, at least not in my opinion, but maybe that's because I thought she could rival Fumina as a love interest...
    Yeah, they never really resolved their feud, did they?

    Your little bro wants up. You think that's not right. You call Sei creepy because he's confusing you.


    The battle itself felt fragmented, as if they forced each individual fight to be "individual" a bit. From the dialogue I was expecting Wilfred to go with strick 1v1 and was thus terribly surprised when the suits still helped their own teammates.

    The biggest problem with Try so far is that Fumina has always been mediocre in her fighting and building skills. For us to be told that she's a match for Kijima Shia is rather unbelievable. What does Lady even see in her?

    There was no Aila under control in this season, so the general level of female players was rather lower. Although they weren't playing at the international level anyway, yet, despite Nemesis fooling around there. It also seemed to me Shia was really concentrating on defense and repair towards the end of this tournament, whereas Fumina was trying to boost her own attack capability all the time, to get rid of her pure support role.

    Perhaps the Lady only saw that Fumina is really serious about gunpla and also does possess genuine skills, even if she was hardly phenomenal at anything during this season. In fact no female was, not even during the first season because in the end Aila wasn't playing the game because she wanted to, but because she didn't want to return to poverty and homelessness. She also wasn't that tough without the painful equipment. The Lady wanted to support any really serious female players, I'd say.

    awesome battle. lol, just what super special effect would follow the next?
    I guess my favorite moment was when Yuuma and Fumina were inside the colony and asking each other "what would we say right now if this was Gundam?" So nice. And really playing with me heart here, since, ya know, what IF Gundam was real in some parallel universe of ReijiŽs or so .... :P:P:P
    Aaanyway!
    So about this final episode ... final for the season or final for Gundam Build Fighters ALL? I really want a third season, and I really want to see Yori, Kawaguchi and co. fight it out again. Of course, ideally my Id love to see m fanfic come true, but even if not for that, I want more GBF. Show us the world level! Show us 1 on 1 battles! And show us Sekai getting lucky and making Shia his gf!

    Cant wait for the release of the soundtrack, lots of reeeeeally good, pulse-wrecking tracks.

    I just finished the first season. It was okay. I liked two things. One, the romance parts. Two, the waki. It's pretty impressive when most of the main female characters are wearing sleeveless clothes all the time. The only bad thing about those two items is they were not explicit enough.

    So the questions are, does the second season have good doses of both and are they more explicit?

    Spunky.

    Little romance. Didn't notice increased waki (but you may)

    Fumina is portrayed much more explicitly though.

    HS - Episode 25


    ----------------------------------







    The fights! Oh, they were so good. The HS torrent was so choppy that it was half ruined, but it was still glorious. Too bad their Master was Domon and wasn't Reiji, but that explains everything.

    This open for all last battle was quite goofy, but Sekai having a private training camp with Shia was a nice surprise. That surely pissed off Fumina, which didn't escape Shia's notice. It's all the better Shia kind of handles Sekai better than Fumina, who's clearly annoyed by his density. It's kind of hard to believe Shia would go through all that trouble (since Sekai is kind of full of trouble) if she wasn't interested at all and was just playing around to kill time.

    Super Fumina was super creepy. It's sad Yuuma's old rival only amounts to that much now. Yuuma should forget the sorry chap and look higher. But that's actually how it looked like towards the end.

    Nothing final in that sense. There weren't even really any pairings to begin with since it was one-sided with all the possible interests. Or actually there were one or two pairings with side characters of no major importance. Nothing like Fellini or Mao of S1, that is. Who knows if this is over. I wouldn't mind a third season if it finally brought the cameos I was waiting for in vain throughout this season.

    I read something about a Try Fighters OVA being in the works. No idea if it is an April fools joke or no, though.
    I really hope they will put another season in for Try Fighters. The story isn't done yet.
    The final episode was weird, and didn't really do the series justice. I'm not hating it, but it could've been more.

    @Kraco/Buff - I might forgo this until I have more free time then.

    Nah, it was too obvious that it was Domon. The real shame is that he didn't have a speaking part. Better yet, it's a shame he didn't get into the final Gunpla battle with his God Gundam. THAT would've been epic.

    Agreed, although the battle royal was pretty entertaining. It could have used more cameos though.

    Also, I hope that OVA rumor is true. I have to see Iori vs Seikai.

    Super fun final episode. Honestly, I enjoyed this mass battle more than the actual final battle in the previous episode, which was more special effects than anything else.

    There were so many good moments here, incredibly. Kraco, calling Super Fumina creepy is uncalled for, come on! IŽd liked to have seen more of their fight, since Super Fumina appeared to be extraordinarily agile. Could have been more interesting than expected.

    Clear best moment: Kawaguchi Meijin VS Ral. Omg! I remember Ral doing something in season 1, too, when he found out about some manipulation during a battle. But this was the first time we see Ral being badass for real. Fantastic. If only Rinko saw him, maybe itŽd raise his chances :>

    Also gotta say, YuumaŽs new gunpla with this black transformation thing looked really cool.

    The one thing that sucked: Still no Yori Sei! We REALLY need a third season for that reason alone.

    ANN is also referring to OVAs, one for Build and one for Build Try based on that article. Of course, like Harima Kenji said, the date doesn't increase credibility, but let's hope it wasn't a joke. If the S1 gets a separate OVA, I'd say chances of seeing Reiji and Aila would be high indeed!

    Best part of the ep was the all out brawl and Lt. Ral going all out. Bout time he lived up to his name since everyone seems to respect him greatly when it comes to Gunpla Battles.

    The final episode was great. It reminds the audience not to take the series too seriously. All matches end with up as shouting matches, and the loudest one gets the win, after all.

    I like how they clarified the love quadrangle, but Sekai needs to choose someone. I like Shia's design, but that's about it. She's too hollow as a character. We don't even know why she likes him. She took an interest in his gunpla, which he didn't even build, first and foremost. Her attraction just feels abrupt and forced. On the other hand, Fumi-chan is not only more developed (in more ways than one, but that's a negative for me) as a character, she's very funny. Shia is also way too wrapped up, if you know what I mean.

    All in all, Try is a much better series than the first one. I think a lot of the comparisons wherein Try is deemed as inferior is mostly due to nostalgia. I watched them back to back and as an anime series, Try is technically superior. It had better pacing, hotter battles, and overall nicer effects. The team battle factor also makes it strategically more interesting (though in the end they keep shouting to win). One thing the first series did much better was waki exposure (Aila ftw). So I guess if I count that, it's pretty much a tie.

    The pseudo-seed effect of Sekai's Jigen Haou style is very bad ass.

    Spunky.

    I found mech design to be superior in the first season. Off the top of my head the only mechs in Try that I find noteworthy are Burning and Crossbone Full Cloth.

    Shia being a hollow character is a very good example of where Try falls short. Pretty much all characters were memorable in some way in S1, but there are too many in Try to develop them all meaningfully.

    I watched these back to back, but I marathonned the first one and I guess that's always better.

    I doubt it's the same person. Didn't Nils say that she was his wife and working (CEO?) at the Yajima labs?
    I don't see a reason why and how she would become Lady Kawaguchi.
    And if I recall, she never built her own gunpla, but used one given to her by Nils
