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

Ultimately Hush was recognized by Mika not only as someone to protect but as a capable comrade hence why he "left that area to Hush" eventhough he knew he was dead/dying. Ultimately he was recognized as a capable pilot. I thought Mika was just saying nice words that one would say to a dying comrade.

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

So when Gaelio asked for "Ein" to crank it up against McGillis, do you guys think the Kimaris has entered the same state that Barbatos had against Hashmal, when it had the trailing-red-eye effect? Is it me or did McGillis fire his wing binder cannons at the Kimaris Vidar at the end of their duel (af...

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

I feel like many of the newer shows forget that and focus too much on the robot porn and/or more conventional anime tropes to lure in audiences. Meanwhile IBO likes to focus on pilots getting impaled, blood on their eyes and their mouth, and some death speech about things like we're supposed to car...

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

Hahaha, this episode probably has done more character development for certain guys than the first 23 episodes of S2. I loved it. +Mika. He's going nuts against Gjallarhorn, don't get me wrong. But it's not a wild, berserker Mika, but of pure, calculated brutality. +Eugene. I've always wanted to see ...

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

As many as the deaths are in IBO, there's still an abnormally large cast of named characters to begin with. For example, Gundam 00 S1 had 3named character deaths towards the end (on the protagonist side) but seemed more impactful because of how small a crew Celestial Being was.

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

One thing that may point out that McGillis may not be behind this is the timing; When Macky starts to get real annoyed by Orga and Mika's insistance that he follow Orga, he was trapped in the same Tekkadan base that has had their communications cut off. He did step out for "personal business" but th...

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

Watch there be a shopping episode with Mika getting dragged along to look at pregnancy-friendly dresses with Atra and Kudelia, with maybe even a Kudelia impersonator with bad Engrish thrown into the mix. Understood the reference, but would be ok if Atra gets offed by a random dude in the process, c...

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

But setting aside the legality and symbolism of the Bael gambit, I still think it's a stupid plan because he had absolutely no guarantee that it would work I think had he actually killed Gaelio he wouldn't have to pull out the Bael move so early and instead would have continued to increase his infl...

^It's all fine and dandy if she realized that doing what she's done now is better, than a political figurehead, I'm not arguing that, but my point is, if that's the case, then she should no longer be relevant to Tekkadan and to the main story. Shes otherwise hogging screentime. Again I ask, what has...

I mean, how many times can you go back to the "Orga stop being stupid we're family we're in this together" well before you're pulling up mud? You know people laugh at Vin Diesel's shtick in the FnF frachise for repetitive use of "family" :lol: Part of the problem is too many characters with overlap...

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

Well, in any case, If Rustal being the actual big bad is considered a "failure" by the writers, then I would say it won't be the first; They've failed to develop Kudelia, Hush, Julietta among others as anyone of significance when they have shown great potential to be interesting characters early on...

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

I actually disliked a good amount of this character episode, because of... characters. -That boring threesome/harem proposal by Atra. Took a good 5 minutes for crap I don't care about. Congrats to Mika though, the first Gundam lead to make a baby someone. Since they're being so 'edgy' with their cha...

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

First off, them being responsible for the bad stuff is beside the point I'm making. He's not an interesting character. He's a very standard-fair military-leader-bastard character. He's the Jamitov or the Bask; makes a great red herring while the real villain gets set up on the sidelines. I'm focusi...

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

Rustal is sort of portrayed as the villain, but he's too bland to be a primary villain. He strikes me as the red-herring villain, sort of like Jamitov in Zeta, who is replaced toward the end by the charismatic, ambitious, sociopath Scirocco. Not to mention Rustal isn't a pilot, and primary antagoni...

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

He threw Gaelio under the bus because him being a royal family means he is part of the corruption (And based on Gali Gali's alliance with Rustal it seems like he's more justified in that regard) That said, one cannot deny that he seems to genuinely admire Mika and his Agnika-Kaieru-ness, and I feel ...

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

If you think about it, in this season so far, Tekkadan has been on the losing side, they lost their Earth Branch even though they beat Galan, they lost their place in Teiwaz along with the Turbines, and now they lost their 3rd best pilot and carrier ship. The only couple of times they actually won ...

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

Yikes... but awesome. I've been saying since mid S1, they need to cut their characters down. Ein disappointed me in this regard but looks like, for now, the balance has been paid in full. This episode is pretty straight to the point. +Rustal is the biggest ZOINKS of all time. Also, devilishly clever...
