The story is set in the near future when GunPla Battles, competitions that pit Gundam plastic models against each other, have become popular worldwide in the "Second GunPla Boom." Sei Iori, a first-year middle-school student and the only son of a model shop owner, is talented at building GunPla, but inexperienced in the GunPla Battles. He encounters a mysterious boy named Reiji, who happens to be an accomplished Gundam Fighter. Together, they strive for the GunPla Battle world championships.

I don't know why I didn't make this thread earlier--actually I was waiting on someone else to make the thread. derp.gif

This series is so awesome! Unfortunately I haven't had the time to fully catch up on all the episodes that are out so far, but from what I've seen it is simply amazing. I love how it takes something from all the past series and blends them together to create pure gundam goodness. Its like Gundam Extreme VS but more because of the customized mobile suits!

Also they stream it live at Robot4Less, its great. biggrin.gif

Huh. I wasn't aware that R4L was open at 3AM on Mondays. troll.gif

Anyway, Build Fighters is great for many reasons, but one of them is because of the sheer amount of awesome obscure niche stuff they bring back from the grave. For instance, this gem right here:

Indeed they have many different references. That's why I love it. Also bear-guy is so cute!

I've been disappointed with the last two episodes. Episode 18 was so friggin awesome that it's making the latest ones seem boring.

Is it bad that I want a Miss Shazabi kit and that I want to paint it metallic red? I mean, it looks wonderful! They took all that was good with Shazabi and then made it better! I wonder if she'll look good next to Sinanju...

I'm guessing you didn't care for G Gundam either. It seems you might have something against fun. laugh2.gif

Can't wait for tomorrow's episode.

Hopefully it delivers some awesome battles, which hasn't been done since Episode 18 unfortunately. Actually, I take that back. Some of those battles were pretty good. The Kampfer Amazing vs. GM Sniper K9 fight just makes everything else seem bland and predictable.

Unicorn, 00S2, 00Movie and AGE were under some kind of lock by some distributor...or something. It's not that they didn't want to, it's that they couldn't without a bunch of legal effort.

It's silly.

^ Supposedly it was any Gundam released in the last 5 years that couldn't show thanks to that lock because of the channel it was aired on in Japan. It's why one from 00S2 showed up in the final episode, because the lock on that season ended two days before the episode aired.

Oh shit that's right, I forgot that Exia Repair was 00S2! Good catch! MBS, wasn't it?

WOAH MAN ITS HAPPENING! I'm pretty excited although I'll admit haven't finished the first season yet... sweatingbullets.gif

I want to say that Build Burning Gundam looks cool... but I really can't. He looks too plain for me. Unless there is a really cool halo effect part then I'll eat my words. derp.gif

I hope the old cast will still make some appearances. They need to bring back Reiji and Aila for at least one episode.

Well... I should have looked more into Build Burning Gundam before saying that he didn't come with effect parts... I don't think they look THAT cool though... Just, something is off with the whole design. I'm guessing it is the lack of blue.

Season 1 was absolutely incredible and I'm still in shock they are doing a season two. I would have thought this was going to be a one off for sure!

for some reason I just cant get into the Gundam build series. you have 2 different stories: the RL and the Gundam fighting part. imo they are much like watching the original batman series. you get one story and then the plot just jumps off to another different tangent. the particle emitting board game doesn't really tie the 2 stories together very well to me. don't get me wrong, the mecha fighting parts are good but I just cant tie the fighting and the builders' off game life together.

I did see some fighting scenes only for the custom mecha but that's about it.

Boom, condensed your post to its bare essentials so that it's simple to understand why BF isn't your thing.

Moving right along, I'm super disappoint that apparently the girl who pilots the Powered GM switches to that shitty SD Gundam crap afterwards for some reason. Garbage. dry.gif
