SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors Thread

Post by YokozunaBulldozer » Fri Mar 27, 2015 11:26 pm

So I have recently been re-watching this show upon my revived interest in the novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms and the compiled historical records Record of The Three Kingdoms(the historical source material for Romance of the Three Kingdoms).
The show is not a 100% faithful adaptation of the story told in Romance of the Three Kingdoms but regardless is a fun watch.
What makes this show fun to watch personally was seeing all these familiar mobile suits appear as the ancient heroes of that time(The ZZ as a long-bearded warrior with a crescent-bladed polearm, Gundam Double X as an ambitious warlord in a phoenix-themed armor, GMs as peasants, etc.). Also the eps are 10-minute eps(51 total).
So if you guys are looking for some SD Gundam anime that is recent and not the same old samurais and Knights that they primarily do give it a go.
Also if you have already seen it before do share your thoughts on it.

By the way, Gundam.info has english dub episodes.

Ah, so that's what the series is about. I keep seeing it whenever I go to the Gundam Info youtube page. Well, with G Reco over and GBFT ending I'll check this out for my next Gundam fix.
Hmm. Luke, this Gundam reminds me of a puzzle.

I was unable to finish this somewhere past ep.30 due to some forgotten reason; I may have been experiencing a disconnect since I do remember marathoning all of Koihime Musou prior to Sangokuden BBW's debut.

I enjoyed it. If I had any complaint, it's would be that I'm kind of tired about the subject matter (about as tired as I am about the "sengoku" period in Japan, uggh), so I'm glad that it at least had something different about it.

Like Ryujin, I got diverted part-way through and never finished the series. It is still a fun abridged anime version of the old classic hero tale. It is definitely Sengoku Lite, but for Gundam fans who don't know much about the old epic, the simplified action lite story gets it told without needing a glossary. The SD hero Gundams and their fellow MS antagonists look pretty good all kitted out in Chinese Opera costume, and the choice of MS for the various characters are pretty good. There were of course enough models out at the time to give SD fans a chance to further clutter up their shelf space. :) It's not original, but it's fun, and it won't make you spazz out in story-related rants at any point like the past few Gundam series. (Unless watching Sengoku anime gives you game-related flashbacks, but I can't help you there! :D)

For those who have seen the show is there a favorite?
Myself personally I like how overall Sun Jian and his children of the Wu are all Stardust Memory gundams.

Ryofu Tallgeese is easily one of my favorites.

Ryubi/Liu Bei and his bros were too dry for me; everyone else was more interesting to watch. Is this supposed to be the case?
Well, I guess I'm a nobody...

Ryuubi and his brothers are definitely the standard warring-era hero types. Whether you find them compelling or not is entirely up to you.

Which seems to be the reason people who like more ambitious heroes prefer Cao Cao.
I do like how they chose the Zeta for Zhang Fei in that he has angsty Camille moments time to time.
I also like how they chose the GP series of Gundams as the Sun family and gave the ZZ and the Gouf wicked beards.
