Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Well, if we look at the average of the endings of most UC series, the "victory" often comes at an extremely high cost. While everyone may think about Z Gundam, we ought to remember that V Gundam and 0083 also followed this trend. The recent decisive victories of Gundam 00 and Gundam SEED are quite a...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Julietta will only be borg-ified if it's necessary for her survival. She's said twice that she wants to remain human and prove her worth to Rustal that way. I'm disappointed that Mika didn't make sure she was dead...like he usually does with enemies. Julietta is getting plot armour from Idiok. McGil...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk II

Given the clues from this episode, the silhouette is likely a rebuilt Flaurios intended for Julietta. Considering her admiration of Gaelio/Vidar, it makes sense that she'd utilize left-over equipment.

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Sad episode followed by sad episode....though this is more about the aftermath I'm impressed and angry with Julietta. After not being able to achieve much for the entire second season, she's suddenly able to go one-on-one with Mika for extended periods of time. It certainly didn't look like Mika was...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Am I the only one wondering if we're ever going to see Orga use his custom Shiden? At this point I'm assuming it was only shown to plug the options set. I'm sure Orga will only pilot it in a moment of absolute desperation.....that would probably only happen if Tekkadan lost (or is about to lose) it...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Given how much you're focusing on it, I rewatched the scene and I'm surprised you're so upset That Graze was from Julietta's team which was clearly what Rustal was depending on to take down the mobile suit forces until the Dainslef shots were ready. Those guys are obviously elite pilots. Also Mika s...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Yeah. Ein's brain was removed in the 1st place for the Graze Ein and somewhat recovered for the Vidar, this theory of Shino's mind in the AV system thing is way too out there to be even considered remotely plausible. His body was still in the cockpit of Graze Ein (we see few shot of it), although i...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk II

I think Julietta deserves a Gundam far more than Idiok. With Idiok's dumb luck, he may actually take down Mika :(

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Shino did have a bloodshot eye but he was also clearly wounded by the last Dainsleif attack. You could see sparks and such around the cockpit so he most likely was in severe pain while focusing which may have SEEMED Mika-like but it probably wasn't. Mika appears to be special in how he syncs with th...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

The show has a habit of rushing through certain bits of character development in order to achieve plot points (Alston's death and the Earth arc) while lingering on others until an 'explosive conclusion' (Biscuit, and basically each member of Turbines) It's definitely disappointing that "nothing" is ...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

I'm pretty sure that Gaelio doesn't realize that Rustal is using him too

Rustal saw through McGillis' plan for quite a while and yet did nothing to warn the other 7 stars. He MUST have his own agenda in mind.

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Agreed with AmuroNT1

It appears that the Dainsleif shots CAN be dodged though! Notice that neither McGillis, Mika nor Gaelio seem to have had much difficulty whereas it seems all of the surrounding forces have been wiped out!

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Gaelio is indeed in an interesting position

He's out for revenge against McGillis rightfully but at the same time, he is happy to turn a blind-eye to Rustal's machinations. He ought to realize that he's not really in the right here

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Well, no matter his ultimate fate, the series writers are going to great lengths to keep him alive - probably for some other reason than to piss us off The battle has taken a turn for the worst. Unless the orbital fleet steps in, McGillis has already lost even if he is able to defeat Kimaris Vidar a...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

Also, my biggest question is: how did absolutely nobody on McGillis' side notice the douchebag with the Dainsleif launcher just merrily trotting his way up to the front lines? Most likely they didn't even recognize the weapon (Liza didn't) since they're so inexperienced - and were definitely distra...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk III

It was great to see Orga lash out at McGillis for his reckless disregard of Tekkadan however I don't think it phased McGillis much since Orga immediately reaffirmed his loyalty to the mission

McGillis will undoubtedly take advantage of Orga and Tekkadan again even if they make it through this battle

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk II

Perhaps McGillis closed the doors for the vaults when the Mika and Vidar started to battle

It's interesting that the Baklazan hangar is open. Has it been revealed in the IBO manga?

Also, was a family responsible for Bael or was it left in the center of the vault due to its leadership role?

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk II

Interesting to see that Vidar can be so readily converted back to its original form as Kimaris. It does look like THIS Kimaris will have some different equipment from its previous forms though It appears that Bael having a soul may indeed be true hence why others were rejected. This adds yet another...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk II

Iok chose not to revert the bridge to "combat mode" as a show of strength (and his own arrogance) so it's likely that all modern military ships are capable of a combat mode bridge Why do they even have exposed bridges in the first place? Perhaps it's a throwback to the captain and crew wanting to ge...
