[Gundam Build Divers] Episode 12 everyone's impressions


Episode 12
"Shining Wings"






















































I hope Kujo pilots this in the near future.




It's so beautiful...












The power of not giving up gives you bonus bug-fixing wings of light? I'd be annoyed but I think we were all expecting it to be something like that.

Sort of an okay episode, but it also felt quite overdone. A final battle with every character we've seen working together feels more like finale material than just the halfway point. And there wasn't really anything to surprise us, or any real stakes/consequences.

And we get absolutely nothing as far as motivations go. Judging by what he says and the preview, maybe this evil dude just played old school Gunpla Battle and he's annoyed that losing doesn't mean much because the gunpla stay safe? Something like that, just maybe.

It's hard to care when everything feels as formulaic as it did this episode. Anyone spot Patrick?



I guess the devs/writers were big fans of My Little Pony?

"Friendship is magic, also, it saves us from having to write more dialogue."












This makes no sense. Why does he have a secret skill that creates giant energy wings who can just turn off the break decals that apparently he himself didn't know about? Don't tell me it was the girl, that makes no sense either, because why would she wait until the last second to reveal that she has this power when they had the same problems with Mass Divers during almost every episode?

Then there is the whole part about this being literally a VR MMORPG... None of what they do matters (At least in the first Build Fighters your Gunpla took actual battle damage). Hell, even if the evil guy manages to glitch out all the servers, they could just do a maintenance and revert to a earlier state. Also, no matter what the evil guy's motivation is, they could just go "This is just a game, dude. Get your shit together." and would be right. The same goes for the MC, don't act all "I want to save this world I hold dear!"... you played that game for like a week.



≫Hell, even if the evil guy manages to glitch out all the servers, they could just do a maintenance and revert to a earlier state.

You would think so but apparently the server admins are so incompetent that they can't shut down the server and start performing maintenance when it's clear that unknown data is being injected into their game... Instead they rely on in game players to solve their issues. Oh and big woop you stopped the break decal this time, but as long as that security issue is present what stops them from just doing it all over again.

Been pretty disappointed with this series so far, was hoping it would recapture some of that original GBF magic but between the generic as possible MC and terrible plot, it is just not going to happen at this point is it?





Because it's pretty much an advertisement for the next Gundam 00, I'd bet.





≫Also, no matter what the evil guy's motivation is, they could just go "This is just a game, dude. Get your shit together."

I've said this much after the last episode. His motivations mean nothing to me when placed in the context of an MMO. Just play another game ffs, or go outside, or see if there's any local tourneys for people who like to play Gundam Duel, just let the others have their fun thing.

The only thing of consequence at stake here was Sarah's life (My Sarah-is-a-bug theory got thrown out when she didn't get deleted with the break decals) since it's quite obvious she is a part of GBN in some way, and getting rid of GBN would get rid of her.












I guess Champ is actually being played by Saber.












"Let's choose the most intimidating mobile armour to destroy - oh look big zam."












I need more Kyouya and Rommel team-ups.

Also Ayame is precious. Glad she’s found new friends who’ll fight by her side












I know this show is for the younger audience, but damn the cliche level is high on this one












I'm going to watch this to the end because i love Gundam but i have to say this is one of the worst Gundam series I've watched. The previous Gundam build series were really good.

The whole break decal thing is just stupid.












Anyone know what that Bee Gundam is based off of? Also hoping for bee girl to show up again since they showed her twice LOL

I knew all along that Haro is the face of pure evil!



Nah, not all Haros. The villain just used the evil black Haro from Gundam 00 series.












Hmmmmmm, they could still sort of turn this around by either making the bad guy the Meijin or by making the whole thing secretly an in-game event.



I think the bad guy is the previous Meijin, that got dethroned by Kyouya because he still had the mental hangups from playing real Gunpla battles, where damage to your Gunpla is permanent. He got salty because of that so he wants to destroy GBN
