After the whole mess with AGE I really thought we were finally done with this series for good! Just kidding the world of Gundam will be around forever and ever, but I just have one question! Can this series re-energize the diehard fans and will it purge our memories of AGE? I certainly hope so right Anaaga?
So last time I watched the combination of Gundam and little kids, it wasn’t a good combination. Now let’s see whether Sunrise can fix this pessimistic view of mine. Though really, I’m just killing time waiting for Unicorn and Origin.
A great mix of old and new
Wing zero reporting for duty!
I have to hand it to Sunrise for finally making a Gundam series about the actual model kits! It only took them a few years, but if you think about it technically every Gundam series is there to push the toys just like what PreCure does for the girls. Besides the obvious stabs at a twenty-four minute commercial it was great watching the actual fighting portions of the episode along with the shout outs to both the old school and new school fans by showing off different Gundams like the original, Unicorn, wing zero, Strike Freedom, Exia and Victory. I know I probably missed a lot from the list that were actually shown, but there are just so many suits to cover! So let’s talk about the battle system which was a lot like Angelic Layer only higher in the tech? I did enjoy how the toys actually took damage after the fights finished and I assume since the kids are not really piloting these machines they should be free of death or is the game simply a cover for a real threat later on? Personally I don’t want some damn surprise war to magically happen forcing all these kids to fight in a real war. Now that I am actually thinking about it I could actually see that playing out in this series or am I just expecting too much? The only thing I have left to say is what the hell is Renji? Is he really a Newtype or maybe he is just from the future and what happened to Sei’s dad? I really hope he did not die in some war, but at least these are fun questions to keep in mind while waiting until the next episode.
Bread is Friendship
Bromance or special friendship?
Paying less than five dollars for someone’s bread, such a simple and meaningless gesture for many, and yet so precious for one. Yep, this simple gesture is the start of bloming friendship between Sei and Reiji. It’s so silly yet cute, plain yet meaningful. When Reiji gave said something about how every debt should be paid back whatsoever, it made me wonder about my own attitude. Reiji, an anime character that is totally fictional, takes every single thing Sei does seriously. And me? I took my friends’ breads without even saying thank you. I am so ashamed of myself. Anyhow, the friendship started off interestingly. With such a simple bread, Sei changed his life completely. I have a feeling that this unique friendship will be even more unique and fun. And lesson from this anime? Always pay for someone’s bread.
Extra gundam fun
Seji-”Yeah I murdered Kira and stole his Freedom Gundam what of it?”
Reji x Anaaga
Free food is always the best kind.
This is going to be a fun Gundam series!
This certainly is not your average Gundam anime! I just hope the action during the battles continues to look amazing because to be honest that is really the only reason I am watching this series but who knows maybe the characters will surprise me? I was shocked to see how skilled Reji was when he magically appeared to help Sei fight that other lame guy; however I just have to ask HOW the hell did he appear so fast? I guess that was some bro-friendship-power? Either way I want to see these two guys team up and fight together! Before I end my thoughts here I freaking loved the music during the battle parts of the episode which reminded me of Robotic;Notes and guess what? It was the same guy! Mr Hayashi Yuki and one final note beware of the Gundam Builders image boards because you will find a lot of NSFW imagines of Sei’s mom. Anyway what did you like from the episode and are you going to keep watching?
Honestly, I feel nothing at all about this anime. My only favorite part is where they show all the Gunpla, showing a line of old Gundams that made me jizz in my pants. There’s also the shout-outs for the classic Gundam such as Red Comet for the second episode and the old man that has the biggest crush on Sei’s mother named Mr. Ral. I laughed so hard when he uttered Newtype. Speaking of Newtype, I was surprised when that term is going to be used in this anime. It makes me wonder though… What the hell is a Newtype in this new Gundam? Someone who can control the Gunpla Battle control flawlessly? Someone who obviously comes from another planet? This, of course, baffles me because I don’t see the need of having a Newtype in this new anime. Unless… Please don’t tell me that they’re going to switch from Gunpla Battle to other planets trying to invade Eart halfway of the anime. No, jut no. No to that. No to everything in this anime. Although there are many shout-outs for the classic, it’s not enough. This new Gundam needs to improvise on the plot if it seriously wants to catch many old Gundam fans’ attention. Honestly, the only thing that makes me watch this anime is the hot Red Comet that will be shown next week and the control for Gunpla Battle. How the hell do you click in that sphere control?
Friendship for the win
