    i dont care one bit about the prestige of battles. s2 battles are super fun to watch even when it´s just between regional schools or even classmates. presentation has improved vastly over s1. What good is the battle Iori/Reiji vs Fellini, when the on-screen action is ass-boring? In s2, even the short random-battle between Sekai and the eastern building-progidy, using chibi-gundams, managed to be exciting from beginning to end.

    national, international, it doesnt matter. the presentation is what makes it fun. that´s why im having infinitely more fun with s2.

    The characters in S1 felt more charismatic and likable. That's the main drive for me. The mechs also felt more amazing and high level until recently.

    If it's not Isuzu-chan Mii~

    Yeah. I have already forgotten most of the players in the second season before the high level bunch they just met. The players and the gunpla. Because there's absolutely nothing to remember there. However, like Bill said, the players and oft the gunpla of the first season were really memorable.

    Besides, this season tries to rely on prestige just as much. All the schools try to tout themselves as the ultimate gunpla players and builders, and people keep saying "there's no way they could win against those / how on Earth did that school lose?". Except that it's nothing but random names. We got very little background or actual faces to build that artificial hype, so it's all meaningless. Only now, after the newest arc, we have a bunch of people who might be worth their plastic.

    Judging from how you guys are debating about this, I'll give this a try after I finish my latest VN.

    Spunky.

    s1 opponents had more build-up, maybe. but i watch this anime for the mech battles and thats where s2 is far superior, even from the first episode on. s1 was like waiting for THE fight to happen, wheres s2 somehow manages to have every single battle be exciting. And now that we´re entering a phase where big names join that, i guess you guys will be happy, too :P

    Episode 15 - HS





    - - - - --- -




    A good episode. Things really started rolling now that the championship started and we got rid of the oft low level local qualifying matches. I wonder if it was really necessary for Sekai to go so all out right from the beginning. He's a one technique wonder so it could be he had no choice, although it's pitiful is he still has zilch ranged ability. But considering how they dominated the match, Fumina might have pulled it off without using even as much as she did. Fortunately it looks like Yuuma kept his head cool, as expected, and showed pretty much nothing, save high basic performance.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Shia's game. She's obviously the Aila of this season, though with a far more agreeable personality. But then again, she isn't an orphan from the streets and tortured by a mad scientist for who knows how long.

    Is there romance in S2? S1 had one, right?

    S1 had a bunch, in fact. S2 hasn't so far had anything too solid. Just some one-sided infatuation. But there's still time, and I bet something will happen.

    Cool. I've downloaded it, but will take a while to catch up.

    Spunky.

    I would give you my opinion, but I'm a bit biased as I am a Gundam fan. Watching mobile suits fighting against each other that would otherwise never have even met in battle is such a treat for me that everything else is second place. Plus, I used to do a lot of Gunpla building back in the day (and I still have a few kits I need to work on), but I'm not nearly as good as they are in the show. That being said, as you can tell, even non-Gundam fans can watch the show and enjoy it.

    I thought that was weird too. My first thought was that his opponents will see it and plan around it like they did Sei. But then again, it didn't work all that well for them either.

    Also, I want to call B.S. on Lightning Gundam keeping up with a feakin Trans-Am Kyrios, but I guess I keep forgetting that Plavsky Particles work on a whole other level. It still irritates me though.

    Not necessarily. Back at the training camp we saw that even the very carefully built original Lightning by the famous artistic builder Yuuma was in fact very poor ability wise compared to the models the big mofos use. Sure, Meijin could still use it (against Yuuma), but he's Meijin, so he probably could have fought with a fricking Bearguy and win. So, it's possible that no matter how good a model this dude thought he had, it simply wasn't nearly good enough (his built of the model, that is) at that level. The local qualifiers aren't necessarily equally tough everywhere, so he might have mistakenly thought he has a good gunpla. After the enlightening training camp Sekai, Yuuma, and Fumina know much better what's the real level near the top.

    Not just build-up, but likeability. Mao was leaps and bounds better than this sour Shingyo School guy. Sei was much more likeable and honest compared to our Grand prix winner who ran from losing. Sometimes I also find myself getting tired of hearing Jigen Haoh Ryuu.

    Today's battle was fun to watch. That Burning gundam's always a treat. I don't think it really matters if Sekai shows the opponent his moves since he overwhelms them with power rather than surprise anyway. He's not one to keep things secret either so that all doesn't really matter. Victory Winning was a bit of a disappointment having only funnels and shuriken.

    I haven't noticed them fighting in formation until now though, perhaps that will lead to something. Or maybe not, given that it turns into 1v1 anyway.

    If it's not Isuzu-chan Mii~

    I am so hoping an opponent will just crush Try Burning while Kamiki is trying to shout out his attacks.

    Lol, this was the first bad battle of s2 and I see people praising it ery boring throw-away battle, against a crappy no-name team that somehow got best 8 last year. Gotta be a shitty year lol.

    Im somewhat glad that our team went all out from the start. That makes it harder to keep doing the same in future battles. The biggest revelation her shoud be that Sekai´s gundam can withstand the pheonix attack now.

    Episode 16 - HS




    - - -- -




    I'm exceptionally happy Shia's gunpla wasn't SD but a stylish and elegant skater instead, fitting her looks and personality. I don't like those at all in serious fights. It's enough Fumina, the newtype trio, and even Lady use one (though that's still unknown for this event). I'm also happy her gunpla and fighting style are different from Aila's, well, in fact all she has in common are the looks, kind of, the mystery, and some intuitive sense of the particle behavior, I'd guess.

    Fumina really needs to worry, though, since Shia seems genuinely interested in Sekai. After the latest display of his super technique, I don't wonder why. He's quite mysteriously pulling something like that out of the gunpla. There are also other, more mundane factors: Unlike the tomboy Fumina, Shia is small and cute, which ought to make a martial artist like Sekai want to protect her instinctively. Furthermore, it seems to me her mystery does intrigue him, as dense as he usually is. Normally I'm quite set from early on what comes to pairings in anime, but quite honest I wouldn't mind if Sekai went for Shia instead of Fumina. Although that being said, I don't know how realistic that would be since they are both middle school age (I assume Shia is as well) and likely live far apart. That alone would prevent anything from happening.

    Didnt like this battle. Fuck off, arrogant gunpla gakkuen! :|

    But I have no idea how this rivalry between Fumina and Shia is supposed to work out. Shia´s gunpla is absolutely uber, whereas Fumina is ... weak. Lol, i cannot even come up with a better word for it.

    Anyway, right now the power forces are too obvious. There Gunpla Gakkuen, that Nemesis-boy and our heroes, who have, well, hero-bonus. I dont feel like Yuuma´s rival from Kansai has any real chance against those three. Even less that other participants. There´s those triplets, but eh, they´re to one-dimensional.

    I´d prefer to have one real underdog defeat one of those above (except for our heroes), but I don´t see it.

    Regarding the relationship talk: Shia is best girl, cause "Cute" will always beat "Hot", sorry, Fumina. But I don´t see Sekai going for Shia, not happening.

    I can't help but view the Kansai dude as some kind of a joke character, this episode with the animals freak show only making it more obvious. Like a jester he will kick vigorously against nameless opponents, but I'd expect him to lose in a grand fashion against somebody serious. Especially since the two other members of his team are nonames who didn't even think they would make it to the national level.

    I wonder if the winner of the championship gets a chance to fight Meijin and the Lady. Although there're only two of them and the fights are 3 vs 3.

    Sounds like something from Naruto tbh. I still love GBF second OP.

    And then Sei suddenly shows up. Or Reiji. How crazy would that be?

    Realistically though, I'm pretty sure Meijin and Lady can handle most of the teams by themselves.

    Since it's three members teams, I'm hoping Reiji + Sei + Aila will suddenly show up at the end as a super combo out of the blue.
