Mechanorn – 31


Bubuki Buranki joins MechaNORN!

winter15-foshYes me and Irene decided to add Bubuki Buranki to the winter MechaNORN because if you saw episode two you will have to agree that it’s a mecha anime due to the giant robot the team assembles with their Buranki weapons! Also a fun fact Daizen Komatsuda and Kaneko Yuuji are working on it and they had a hand in Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill so that will be interesting to see those influences on Bubuki Buranki! Oh and there was a bit of Gundam IBO update it’s getting another season, but we don’t exactly know when it’s coming just that were getting one so I guess it’s a huge hit after all? I know I’m super happy to hear that news.

    Heavy Object: I loved it that the fighter pilot was able to lend a saving hand without getting his ass blown out of the sky. It shows that Qwen and Havia aren’t the only ordinary soldiers who can make a difference on a battlefield dominated by Objects and other super weapons.

      He pretty much declared that with his actions and choice of words.

      Burning Alpha: “This is definitely suicidal, but… I want to be the hero of the story once in a while, too!”

    • IreneSharda says:

      Yes, for at least being able to contribute beyond being the background, Burning Alpha should be congratulated. 🙂

    So it’s Bubuki Buranki joining the Mechanorn ranks.

    Among the three mecha candidates this season, that’s my second guess of getting picked. First one in mind was Active Raid because for some reason, I assumed Overcooled suddenly decided to join in since she’s blogging that series. Final candidate, Schwarzesmarken, had no hope because as far as Fosh is concerned, that one’s out of the question.

    Congratulations on Gundam IBO getting another season. That’s good for you guys.

      It’s not official yet, but here’s hoping! 😉

      As for Bubuki, it’s really the only main mecha series that both of us ended up enjoying and was actually straight up “mecha”. We would have probably have thought about adding it sooner if they hadn’t hid that it was a mech series until episode 2.

      I’m really enjoying it so far, and it’s my favorite of the few mech shows out this season. (not counting those continuing from previous seasons)

        Bets are the creators were thinking “Why spoil the surprise announcing it when the people can find out themselves by watching?”. 😉

        I, myself, would go with that sly approach.

        No secret Fosh and I have you in each of our genre camps but I never asked. What is it about mecha that you like it so much? Out of curiosity.

        • IreneSharda says:

          Well, they were trying to hide it well. They just updated the OP, now it’s completely mech-ified.

          As for what do I enjoy about mecha? Well, it’s weird that I’m really not in it for the mechs themselves, though I do enjoy them. However, there is usually a certain kind of story and certain kind of characters that usually come with such a genre. A lot of them are space operas which I enjoy a lot, and I like the drama the character interactions and such. Mecha usually come with a larger than life story, you don’t use mechs for fighting over schoolyard squabbles (and if they do, that type of show really isn’t for me) but to fight intergalactic battles. And I guess, that’s what really interest me more than anything else.

          • BlackBriar says:

            Interesting. So it’s not for the sake of the mechs themselves which are a means to an end but mainly what they bring in tow with them. I can see that as true since the mechs themselves in each show are a dime a dozen off an assembly line. What’s important is what happens with them used as an extension.

    Were you guys having technical difficulties? I had a hard time listening to the Heavy Object review. There are times when the sound quality is dull. It drops and rises, making the conversation incoherent. I nearly had to max out my laptop’s volume and that still didn’t contribute much to resolving the problem.

  4. BlackBriar says:

    Heavy Object – 14: The fighter pilot gets points for being a glory hound. He wanted his time in the spotlight!

    You’ve got to hand it to author Kazuma Kamachi. When he makes scientist/Engineer-like characters, they’re no pushovers. Much like this Sladder Honeysuckle, played by Yoshimasa Hosoya, who has some bite by going on the offensive. As for his fate, he’s in custody but they don’t know what to do with him since was supposed to be killed on sight.

    The two main guys just can’t catch a break. Expecting notoriety for what they believed were achievements and instead they get burned for every misstep and outside aid up to now. My condolences. What followed up with Frolaytia and Milinda was hilarious. We get talks of lashes, candles and a horse. Stop teasing, you two and just say you’re into S&M. 😛

    Even though I don’t care for Milinda I love her OMG expression.

    Heartless! She’s a cute, likable character.

    bubuki buranki is actually full cgi in the same way the cgi world of black rock shooter was fully computer animated

    • IreneSharda says:

      Hmm, that’s interesting to know. The ways their facial expressions are at times actually look closer to 2D, which I commend them for. But I wouldn’t be surprised if it was all 3D. I know Disney was trying this newer technique of mixing handdrawn and CGI together with some of their most recent shorts, but I doubt that Japanese anime tv series has yet to reach that point with their budgets.

      • sonicsenryaku says:

        yea exactly; while i dont think all of the facial expressions work, this is definitely an improvement over other cgi anime shows and it shows that cg in anime could get better with time. Some of the staff on this show worked closely with imashi (ex-gainax guy) so you can see their influence in the action scenes ergo there are times when the action scenes look like they are a mix of 2d-and 3d due to these staff members intentionally making it look that way. It’s reminiscent of the cg used in Panty and stocking and kill la kill

    Bubuki Buranki – 02: So Oubu is basically this Aztec-looking version of Voltron that needs multiple pieces to assemble. I said it in the First Impression but will say so again because I can’t shake the feel. A lot of these Bubuki Buranki remind me of those clan issued puppets in Kamisama Dolls.

    Pretty chaotic and destructive episode and quite a twist revealing Reoko is older than she appears because of an incident the halted her aging process. Meaning she’s 40 in a 16 year old’s body.

    Yeah Bubuki Buranki has some really crazy faces.

    This is true but take another look. The guy’s eyebrows are connected to his hair.

    I thought I heard something familiar hearing that Shuusaku Matobai, talk in that deep, low growling voice. His seiyuu is Kenjirou Tsuda a.k.a Gangsta’s Nicolas Brown and K’s Mikoto Suou.

    • IreneSharda says:

      Oubu is one interesting mech and I’m interested in seeing more of it and the kids as we get more into the plot.

      Now that you mention it with Shuusaku, I indeed do recognize that growl. Still playing cool dudes I see.
