[Gundam Build Divers] Episode 2 impressions

 
Episode 2
"Chaotic Ogre"



































 
 
 
 
 
 
These kids watched Gundam Victory...
 

Probably the most unrealistic moment in the episode... and this is a show about a virtual reality battle simulator where you can pilot your gunpla.
 

Nah, what I can't believe is that they had the balls to even mention Victory Gundam in what is essentially a kid's show in a scene where the conversation is being played between kids. They again this is Gundam they have history with this kind of stuff even with something as new as IBO. That's why we even had Victory in the first place come to think of it.
 

Tomino actually makes his Gundam shows aimed at kids. He just thinks they can handle it. lol

I know right? Next thing we hear is that these kids actually know about Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway's Flash, or hell, even Gaia Gear.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 "If you die in the game, you'll die in real life"
 
 
Wrong VR anime this season lol
 







I'm getting the feeling that we'll see a lot of Patrick

After hearing it a few times, OP actually sounds pretty nice. Usually not a fan of GN-X, but Ogre's one was not bad. I like that Riku isn't as strong as Reiji or Sekai and has to work on becoming better. He does seem to have battle intuition

What I really like about the OP is how well it fits to the visuals.
 

Yeah, I think that’s the major appeal. The song wouldn’t be as good otherwise
 
 

Seeing the old WMS-03 Maganacs brought back some good ole 90s memories.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
On this episode of Gundam Build Divers: Momoka chases down Riku and Yuuki only to be turned into a plaything by Nanami, Hellfire Ogre doesn't know how to take a hint cuz he's too battle hungry, Riku learns what defeat is and has his pride smacked around like my meat when I find doujins of Sarah, and finally, He needs to git gud skrUb to use Nostalgia-Am.

On a side note, Ogre GN-X is going to be a must buy for me. It's too cool to pass up on! What do you guys think of the power-up thing the blue-haired Dom pilot used? It was a bit hard to read but It looked like It said "Break Loose". I think this is a cheat he bought from a hacker. It's comparable to buying in-game money from a GTA hacker by paying him real money.

Last one, A fun little easter egg was when Momoka was hiding behind Setsuna's civilian clothing when she tried following Riku & Yuuki. (You can also see Lockon's civilian clothing in the same store.)

DONT LEWD THE (POSSIBLY AI) LOLI
 

If she's AI then she has no age which means she is P E R F E C T L Y L E G A L
 
If she's l
ike Kizuna AI then she's probably five which is T O T A L L Y N O T L E G A L
 

  
Knowing the Build series, it was not only easter egg, but rather a real cosplay costume. One of those three Squad members winning the war (the red haired one) is another cameo from 00 series.

Also, the next set of clothes the shopkeeper wanted to make Momoka wear is Sochie Heim's pilot gear.
 
 

≫What do you guys think of the power-up thing the blue-haired Dom pilot used?
It is a way for the writers to have other suits be capable of countering Trans-Am. Doesn't appear to act all that different than Trans-Am other than the evil purple smoke.
Maybe the Gunpla Mafia is behind this one somehow.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Magee: "Were you all right? You disappeared, so I was worried"
Sarah: "Yes. Thank you pretty lady."
Innocent precious daughteru must be cuddled and protected!


Must protect!
 
 
 
Pretty much confirms last week's theory that Nanami is actually Magee.
 
 
If anything, it destroys that theory. Nanami was playing dress-up with Momoka that tailed the two for the entire time they had Dived.
 
 
 
 

 
 
 "I'll NEVER use Trans-Am ever again."
builds a BD-3 instead
"EXAM!"

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The OP started to grow on me especially that "heyyyaaaaa" part
Edit:geez dark hound? You spoiling me here
 
 
OP is catchier than the previous ones, I give you that.
 
 

That dark hound has to be the champion right? he's using it instead of the AGE 2 when he's undercover or something.
 
 
What are you talking about, that masked man totally isn't Kyoya. How completely absurd.
 
 
 
≫The OP started to grow on me especially that "heyyyaaaaa" part
I'm probably just a sucker for a rap OP but I found it really catchy from the first time hearing it. Not OP of the season (so far that's TadaKoi) but still.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Small white-haired girl getting head pats.
She's adorable.


I'm pretty sure she's some kind of AI or something attuned to the world instead of another actual human being.
No way am I alone in this; had this vibe the moment they showed her.
I mean, it's a VR where kids can play; I doubt pain is something that you can experience, but she looked like she was feeling it when they found her.


Also, I'm a tad disapointed that one of the MCs is magically a good fighter.
At least in GBFT, the MC was a martial artist.
This kid is just good by some random miracle.
That kind of sucks a bit to me.

 

It looks like Riku's the sporty type with good reflexes, according to the football scene from the previous episode. So it's at least somewhat justified why he can react quickly to his opponents
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm really not a big fan of this "the mobile suit is hurting" deal. It won't make Sarah a more interesting character either, and so far she's been a bit of a cliche mysterious girl.
The battle was pretty nice though. Don't get why Riku feels he's not good enough to use trans-am when he basically won. All he has to do is get better at building the thing.

She's likely an AI and thus can read/understand the data of the mobile suits. Seems she's pretty new as she doesn't know the basic functions of the system such as adding friends, hopefully she gets more interesting as she learns more.

I wouldn't say he won, he made one good move but there's no guaranteeing whether or not that one move would've finished Ogre off and I'd doubt it since Ogre isn't some fodder character. Ogre's GN-X would've taken damage but to win off of one slash would be optimistic. I think it's clear from the initial confrontation where Ogre overpowered Riku, that Riku is both a worse pilot and worse builder than he is despite having small moments of brilliance.
 
 
 
 

 
 
It's really a shame Momoka didn't get into the Sochie Heim pilot suit, but it is a neat little bit of foreshadowing that she'll eventually pilot a Kapool.
 
 
 
 
 
The fights are good, but man, Gundam Build Fighters characters were already weird, this series is approaching satire levels.
Just want another bro like Fellini
 
 
 
 

There were some pretty good laughs in here. Also I'm pretty sure Sarah an AI or something >.> It's kinda obvious. Looks like some guy is selling break decals (hacks) for the game. I wonder what the plot will do with that.
 
 

 
 
This is going to be mmo mecha, seems great.
