[Gundam Build Divers] Episode 9 everyone's impressions


Episode 9
"Return of the Ogre"


The Build Divers are given their first monthly Battle-Random mission, and their opponents are Hyakki, led by Ogre. Despite Yukki's doubts about a rematch with Ogre, Riku proceeds with the mission to test all of the skills the Force has learned from their first encounter with Ogre. However, Riku insists on keeping his promise to Sarah to not use Trans-Am. During the battle, Do-ji deviates from Hyakki's strategy and charges towards Riku, only to be defeated in hand-to-hand combat. Ogre arrives to challenge Riku, but Do-ji activates Break Decal on his Geara Ghirarga and interferes with the duel, much to Ogre's dismay. Seeing that Do-ji no longer has control of his Gunpla, Riku and Ogre team up and use the Geara Ghirarga's weapons against it to stop the Break Decal phenomenon before Ogre orders his Force to withdraw from the battle. Despite using Break Decal, Do-ji is reminded by his teammates why Ogre included him in Hyakki. Elsewhere, Kyoya and Rommel investigate the destruction of the 7th Panzer Division at the hands of Mass-Divers.

This episode in a nutshell:
Notice me, Nii-san



His Gunpla was fucking sick tho








 
 
 
 
At this point I'm only watching this show for the Gundam call-backs and references, because the main story is just too juvenile for me.
 
 
 
Im watching for the Opening theme and the fights. The story really is generic. even this episode.......sigh seen it so many times before last week as well.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Must be nice for the makers of this game. Hacking epidemic? Let the players deal with it.
 
 
 
The hack/cheat appears to be an in game item. How the hell do they not have a system in place just to detect no official items.
 
The cheat maker is going to be a developer.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm a huge fan of 0080, so seeing the opening battlefield used was great. Shame it got interrupted before the battle went anywhere, but it was looking to split up into a bunch of 1v1's anyway.
 
For the rest it felt like a weak episode. Doji's motivation is basically the same as the girl from last week, and it's painfully obvious to see how cheating would never get him what he wants. But i'm sure there won't be any repercussions despite cheating in an official match.
 
Riku's hangups about using trans-am still don't make a whole lot of sense considering everyone agrees he knows what he's doing now, as well as the fact that his gunpla isn't gonna take damage in the first place. Not that he seems to need it. First time they met, Red Oni didn't even seem to outclass him that much with trans-am, and now they seem more or less equally matched.
 
It's a bit weird how much of a deal it is anyway considering trans-am would only be available to 00 style suits. They would be balanced out with the rest in some way.
 
Overall pointless character work all around this week imho, and not an especially good battle in return. Next week promises a massive fight though, so that's good.
 
At least the momokapool was fun.
 
 
 
≫It's a bit weird how much of a deal it is anyway considering trans-am would only be available to 00 style suits.
 
To be fair, the first two series had plenty of strong 00-style suits that could overpower anything. Not to mention Riku needs a drama-preserving handicap or every episode would end with Trans-Am. Better it be saved until the finale.

≫and not an especially good battle in return

I'm beginning to think that's kind of the point.

This stupid-ass Break Decal business is getting in the way of the sakuga and glorious mecha battles we older viewers from GBF and GBFT came here for.

And from the preview it seems they're finally going to do some thing about it next episode.
 
 
 
 
 
The oath of not using Trans-Am until he got good enough in building gunpla is the reason Riku choose SEED-based jetpack-it enables the speed boost like Trans-Am.
 
 
 
 
 
≫Riku's hangups about using trans-am still don't make a whole lot of sense considering everyone agrees he knows what he's doing now, as well as the fact that his gunpla isn't gonna take damage in the first place.

I think deep down he knows he can use it, but part of him still fears being unable to control it and upsetting Sarah again, and it's that part that is holding him back. He'll probably soon face a conflict that leaves him no choice
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

  • Ay the Immortal Colasour is back again
  • The moment Do-ji was in conflict about using the Break Decal, it was obvious Ogre would be pissed later in the episode about the lack of honour
  • Could anyone tell me what were the Mass Divers' mobile suits from the flashback with Kyoya? The leader's black one is pretty cool
  • At some point, Riku, you have to use Trans-Am. It may not be life-or-death like in 00, and winning isn't everything, but if you don't try it out soon, how will you use it properly when the time comes?
  • I love how Momoka usually uses the Momokapool to dodge attacks
  • Ah, it's somewhat disappointing that Ayame doesn't have a change of heart in this episode. The Ep 10 preview shows her saluting though, hope she joins the coalition of volunteers.
  • Wow Do-ji's Ghirarga cries with him. What's this, Darling in the FranXX?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So far, this narrative of people going really easy on their friends/relatives who fuck up and use break decals seems really jarring to me. Most of these characters don't look like they'd be so chill with fucking up the game they're so invested in, plus also from what I understand of Japanese culture it doesn't seem like it'd play out like that
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The best thing about this series continues to be the badass opening theme

oh and when the Gundam actually fight.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So, it seems Milza from the world of Grancrest Senki was reincarnated, and is now an avid GBN player.

 I hope he isn't such a dick in this show. :X

So far, all of the mass divers reasons are... shallow.
Like, too shallow to be really believable.


But I'll roll with it.
 
 
 
Yup im rolling with it cuz the fights are pretty well done tbh

Nice shoutout to Milza tho lol
 
 
 
 
 
≫So far, all of the mass divers reasons are... shallow.

Is winning not the most basic reason to cheat. They suck compared to the average player base so, they cheat just get a win.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
i hope we get to see magee's gunpla next week
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Riku once again trolling....Uses Exia base but won't use Trans-Am

Seems to me like a perfect time to briefly feature a protagonist Gundam from a previous series if he isn't going to use the 00 features...
