Wasn't there also a chick from Turn A alongside Ikeda the reporter from 00? I think she was a reporter too.

I laugh from start, that MS dancing is...impressive.

Now it's clear that Reiji's "flags set up" phase is over, now he's on Aila route. :D

So...he's just a passingby gunpla fan? Now I think whatever going on is most likely his fault... 8)

That Gunpla cop thing was this episodes OMG moment for me. Gunpla Cop. Intact or destroyed model you're coming with me.

Actually, the Chairman's gold limo originally belonged to Dorothy Catalonia.

A few more references:

-Takeshi's speech to "C" is Cutey Honey's trademark intro speech.
-The house where Takeshi lives in Sei's dream is Tem Rey's apartment on Side 6; you can even see the infamous Tem Ray Circuit on his desk.
-Rinko can be heard humming "Invoke" while digging through the pantry - another actor reference for Kotono-san!
-The mall has a curry shop named Maharajah, after Haman's father.

Oh, and tell me Takeshi freaking out over missing his hot waifu wasn't adorable. I dare you.

There's also Rinko's little imagine spot where she's being interviewed by Kinue Crossroad from 00 and Fran Doll from Turn A, as was already mentioned. The episodes are just getting more and more overloaded with references.

Reiji finally learns the pride and passion of a creator.
Aila's love of Japanese food and desire to stay in the country kind of hints to me of her possible "happy ending". Now if only there was someone who could take her in; a kind, gentle, and understanding person. Some kind of pseudo sister, preferably one that works in and around food. hmmm...

How is it that each episode gets better and better :shock:

Also, I love the orange juice pouring that Sei does bowing to Ral. It's so adorkable. This entire episode I don't even hnnngh @[email protected]

Between this thread and the adoration this series gets regularly across the internet, I feel like I may have to actually start watching. I kind of assumed it'd be a bit of a fun but forgettable footnote in the Gundam juggernaut, but it sounds like it's also deeply enjoyable and full of the best kind of fanservice (winks and nods to longtime fans).

So! Anybody here know where one could watch this legally, if one didn't live in North America? I've seen episodes on YouTube, but Bandai Channel has the tendency of region locking them.

This series has steadily moved up my list of favorite series, and unlike many of them, doesn't waste tropes at the expense of the audience. This series basically demonstrates that, hey, you don't have to kill off a main or supporting character to cause the audience to give a care, and you definitely don't have to aim at adult themes like world economy or peace to actually make it enjoyable.

Also, gunplorn? Gunprawn?

Edit - looks the soundtrack is dropping 12 March! YAY!

Edit 2 - What exactly was C trying to accomplish? :lol: *can't let my contract expire, must knock out Reiji's gunpla... even if it's at a hobby store and the end result would be a broken gunpla and no loss in rankings*

I dunno, I think becoming the queen of an entire country would be an even better ending for her.

Other than blatant fanboy pandering, I think the show is so well recieved because it's a much needed change of pace from the typical Gundam war drama.

And you can only watch it on Youtube. I dunno if it'll be locked for you, but there's one way to find out.

Hitmen are all about reputation. Sure, he fulfilled his contract by making them lose the race, but he still technically lost that fight to Reiji. He just wanted to regain his honour.

So this episode proves that Takeshi has a very good reason for not being around. Now we can stop speculating about that.

It also proves Gunpla Builders is an anime in the BF unverse, rather than being a prequel like some suggested.

Man, this episode was just full of ship. I didn't expect Aila to be involved with Reiji meeting with Takeshi. What fun. Needs more Reiji and Aila being back to back badasses.

Damn you, Cziommer. You just ruined Kirara's career as an idol.

Well...not ALL the fan service is the best kind. I cringed a little when Aila was handling the ice cream. It looked too much like a deliberate use of freudian imagery, and generally I do not like the encouragement that gives to certain segments of the online fan base...

Aila is still absolutely adorable in her facial expressions. Also, Reiji/Aila team-up? TOTAL EPIC WIN.
Takeshi Iori is...I don't know, I bust a gut laughing every few minutes watching that guy. And then he LOLpwns that C dude, and said dude faceplants into a urinal. That was...amusing.
But the funniest part of the entire episode had to be the post-credits scene when Takeshi is all freaking out because the store is closed and RIN-CHAAAAAN IS NOT HEEEEERE!!!
And Gyandere the loser rival just randomly strolls by.

Awesome stuff, overall. LOVED this episode.

Frankly, I feel that they're not being encouraged enough.

Mmm, that's it Aila, eat that ice cream, yeah, all over your face, mmhmm.... 8)

You know I remember back when all the Takeshi discussion started (I think I may have been one of the first to bring it up) I remember that what I wanted to know was what they planed to do and how he was going to be in the series I am not disappointing I am happy he helped train his little "Sei" moment (Like father like son) as well as his job covered more and his visit to "Rin-chan" I'd say he skipped visiting Sei cause the boy has to focus on the tournament.

Beware, for as you gaze into the fan service abyss, it also gazes into you. Gaze not too long, lest you become the main hero for No-Rin or Sora no Otoshimono. :P The scene did remind me of an old party game from my more active Rennie days, involving gullible but willing girls and a soft-serve ice cream machine. :wink:

I was going to list everything I found awesome about the episode, but it turned out that meant recapping it. It was meant to be a fun episode & a comic breather before plunging back into the serious finals section. The meatbun shipping was especially mighty, especially when aided & abetted through the miracle of Gunpla building by Gundam Jesus! Reiji's gifted first plamo was hilarious in his origin, and sparkly in its completion, and its reception with the others.

That means in the universe, HGCE Aile Strike has be released for years, and there has been new HGs coming out from other universes. That's why we have been seeing the likes of gunplas from G, X, W, and V duke it out here, and one can safely assume they are proper 1/144 HGs and not the old 1/144 ones.
I read somewhere that GBF is supposed to take place somewhere around 2030-2035 so definitely in our near future.

Yeah basically. This show is unashamed fanservice and blatant toy commercial done right. The jokes include gundam and gunpla fans of all eras so nobody feels left out.
