So, when is the NTR going to happen? I've got a bit curious, so I won't drop this show... yet.
Buddy Complex thread, I guess.
Another show with NTR? How does this happen?
Hina looks good in her pilot suit.
This time it's MC NTRing the girl from the other dude.
What is this stuff about NTR?
So far from the show it seem like.
>Girl loves guy in the past
>He likes her
>She disappears in portal
>Goes to a future just short of where she came from
>Has to woo her from the enemy side and make her fall in love with him again
>Some kind of paradox thing at the end of the series where he saves the Hina that got vaporized in the portal in ep 1
Unless she is with someone else, I don't get the whole NTR schtick. Same person, same timeline. There's only one Hina.
Or are you saying she NTR's him from Dio?
Bizon is the one who gets NTR'd but I don't think that is the only reason that Bizon wants to kill Aoba so much.
From Bizon, you silly.
It did look extremelly butthurt in episode one. It's likely she ditched him for Aoba. Or so he seems to thinks so.
>My heart is bleeding for him...
Better, clean version.
But that is why I liked the first episode.
I could feel his death wish for the MC.
Fucking fujoshi bait.
Sunrise can't make a good mecha anymore.
She was going out with the other dude before he showed up?
Why is Zoglilia Hina always angry?
Because there are still enemies of Zogilia.
I mean the actual mecha action in the show is good besides them showing someone is "better" by having them just teleport.
please anon! nothing happend yet and people are already screaming ntr? Episode 3 didn't say anything about the realtionship between Bizon and Hina so why fucking jumping to conclusions yet?
/a/ is retarded and sees NTR everywhere
You can stretch this retardness to every currently airing anime.
ZOGILLIA NO TEKI
the bridge bunny with the short hair is the waifuest
i'd totally let her drop her spaghetti around me
I wonder if the reason the commander is so laid back is because he's secretly got information from the future.
Well he kinda looks like a descendant of one of Aoba's friends so I wouldn't be surprised if he knows something about him.
Could be. He doesn't seem to know everything that will happen but he does seem to know that everything will work out somehow.
I liked this episode a lot.
Aoba did act llike a retard and it looks like it'll take time for his getting along with Dio after then incident.
The short haired gilr seems to have a thing for Aoba, and the long haired one for Dio.
Alfred is one classy mofo.
>Still shipping DioxAoba and BizonxHina over the show OTP.
>Still shipping DioxAoba
Try and stop me Bizon.
You'll see. At the end Aoba will come back in time because you don't abandon your mom and Imouto for a bitch, while letting Hina to Dio for him to take good care of her with his D.
Then Bizon is revealed to be Aoba's grandson. They sort of look alike.
The OP is incredibly generic and I like it.
HATATAKEI MADAMINU SORA NI
I prefer the ED, though OP is not bad.
Wow, the 3rd episode was very good.
Surprise of the season for me.
I thought I wasn't going to like her, but I like her.
I don't get it. Apparently Aoba in the future is like a scientist or something. Why not just bring him in to verify the time travel story?
The Buddy Complex thread last night was excellent. If it stays like that, the threads alone will make this my AOTS
>Apparently Aoba in the future is like a scientist or something
Where did you get that from?
Shouldn't he just disappear from the world after he traveled into the future? The only thing they could check is if there are any records of someone like him missing.
I still have no idea why they can't check missing persons reports, news reports about giant fucking robots or DIO MATTERU, DIO DOUSTE
It's nice to argue with people without throwing shit at each other from time to time.
Well, I have three ideas regarding this.
The ship just isn't able to access the records, and next episode when they land at the base they look him up and his story checks out and the little plot line of everyone doubting him at every turn is laid to rest. This is the best scenario.
Due to the Confederacy getting the shit kicked out of them for most of the war, and given Japans proximity to the front lines, most of the records and whatnot were lost due to the war and destruction.
It is shit writing and won't get explained. This is quite possibly the explanation.
Well if Japan is a warzone it's possible any records kept were destroyed.
I don't know if they can be bothered or do that at all at the moment, they are during a mission right now, maybe they will once things settle down a bit.
But even if they do confirm that there used to be a guy called Watase Aoba and he went missing that still doesn't mean that he couldn't fabricate that information, or just find someone looking similarly to himself that went missing and impersonate him. It's easier to believe than time travel.
Would explain why Hina is part of Zogilia even though she is Japanese.
>connecting your top secret warship that is all alone and being chased by hostile forces to the internet
If he travels back to the day he traveled to the future, then he won't be missing.
Maybe she's a traitor or even worse a gaijin
Oh shit you're right, I never even thought about that. Give this man a promotion
But he'll still be crazy and still be retarded.
Death to bakemo- er, enemies of Zogilia!
I don't think she is Japanese.
So Zogilia is Serbia, right?
Looks like /a/ forgot what NTR meant
But then wouldn't he be still alive and they could try to contact him?
GBF is more enjoyable than this shit.
RIP Dio's brain cells.
Zogilia actually looks like Tibet/Western China, which is pretty ridonkulous
No it was Tibet or near there, they just took over Russia
Males often don't live to 90.
Future healthcare might improve it.
You forget about war
But the important thing is that they have the Serbian spirit.
I assume there's an intense arms race going on, since they put so much importance on capturing enemy robots.
Zogilla just want to examine the new Coupling System the alliance have made. It's the only thing that can give the alliance and edge in the war.
Zogillian are just jelly of that brand new Nice coupling system that Alliance has.
That explains the retardation.
At this point I think they're not even aware of the coupling system.
They know they have new mechs being developed in secret that are "priddy gud".
They just want to examine that shiny new mechas that outperform mechs they have.
They can always get that info from somewhere else.
Don't forget the national anthem
Her hips are non existent
not-Asuna Elmarit is moe
I'm wondering where Sunrise are gonna take this... if they're gonna connect up with the beginning loop, or if they could start an altogether different route and make things kind of interesting.
Hips are overrated anyway.
I should have noticed this.
She's made for combat not baby making.
That blonde guy reminds me of the captain...
The commander always has a "keikaku doori" face.
I bet they're related and the captain wants revenge against the evil-eyes for betraying/killing his brother.
He has more of a Yang Wenli attitude though
To bad the Cygnus bridge doesn't have anywhere for him to put his feet up.
All of Yang's "retardation generating field" goes to Aoba I think.
That was Yang's special power after all. Making everyone retarded.
I don't see how Aoba makes anyone retarded.
No. The field is what's making Aoba so dumb.
I don't see how Aoba is dumb. Examples please.
Episodes 2 and 3.
Maybe dumb is the wrong word. How about "lacking in common sense"?
More like "Guy thrown into the middle of a way 70 years into his future fought with technology he doesn't understand and expected to treat it as commonplace"
Come on anon, he's not THAT bad. Especially when you compare him to how most mecha MCs start out.
Opening your cockpit in the middle of a fight is still fucking stupid as all hell.
-whaddya doin with that phone girl?
-just textin bout killing enemies of zogilia
At least he didn't open up his helmet in space.
He was trying to get to Hina, he thought he hurt her and wanted to check on her. He can't do that without opening his cockpit.
He was trying to save somebody. It's not like he could put gravity on hold and finish chasing the rest of the enemies off before trying to save Hina.
Maybe "confused" would be better?
Lets see what happened.
He gets attacked by a huge mecha, he gets saved by another huge mecha which is piloted by his classmate. Gets sent to the future and told to meet with Dio. Classmate vanishes somehow and he has no clue how. Arrives in the future, inside a mecha and has no clue what's going on. The dude named Dio has no clue who Hina and threatens him. Realizes a war is going on around him. Fights inside a mecha for the first time, gets wast quantities of knowledge shoveled inside his brain trough coupling. Gets arrested. Gets forced again to pilot a mecha. Fights a strong opponent and notices that the pilot is the only person he actually knows. The girl who he thinks he knows doesn't know anything about him and shoots at him. Since the arrival and end of episode 3, the only thing he got to eat was a Snikers.
All that happened to a 16 year old guy in a single day.
I'm sorry anon, but you lack any common sense if you think you would have acted any better than him.
so this is poorman's valvrave, right?
You're right. He's not bad at all.
so you're poorman's troll attempt, right?
Not opening the cockpit would have drawn even more shouts of "beta retard", I know which choice I preferred.
I wonder if zorgilia phones are just so powerful that you can just hack bank accounts with ease.
>oh, lets see if they are faster than anime-kyo
>Buddy Complex dropped
Hopes crushed before they where even up properly.
I just wrote that because of all the hype and recommendations that people post in the last VVV's threads before this shit starts airing.
Its better than VVV or not better?
When will this show go full retard?
It is not good enough to amaze me and not bad enough to make me laugh. It is solid and a little enjoyable but i need more.
At 16 I had already fucked every hot teacher in school, had 10 different girls pregnant, saved the Earth from aliens twice, slapped my sister on the ass, flown over 200 combat missions and fucked your mom.
Totally different, I like it a lot more. If you want a (so far) better mecha action show, then this is it. If you want a hilariously fun disaster to watch with /a/, this isn't it
So far this is a work of a genius when compared to VVV.
The only thing BC and VVV have in common is mecha. BC could end up being the best mecha show in a long time.
We don't need another Samurai Flamenco or VVV.
They were slower than anime-koi if we base it on the pre-air, they were also terrible.
I will just wait for Guilty Crown S2 in that case.
It's nice to have a good mecha shows for once. Not something over the top gimmicky or stupid.
I'm sticking with it for now and I like the fights but otherwise it hasn't really hooked me yet.
I bet Galliant is fucking Hina thats when Aoba loses his shit and goes on a murdering spree.
I want to see him pilot Kallen's mecha.
He'll go insane/rogue because of a failed coupling attempt.
Did you reverse those names you dump tripfag
How else was he supposed to communicate with her and show her his face? At that point he didn't know that she doesn't know him yet, he must have assume that her fighting him must be some kind of misunderstanding.
thread's already getting shitposters wishing for trainwrecks and fujoshits. was good while it lasted. hope they don't pull a fucking vvv since this show is actually decent so far
That can't be official art, it's so bad
And after Aoba Nicoles Lasha.
The threads not that bad. There's always going to be complainers.
So far I think we are safe, just worrying how much the supposed script change will impact.
I mean, the bodies seem a too small, don't they?
So I hope those are jeans and not the same school uniform pants Aoba has been wearing. They sure are cheap on the Cygnus.
what change? what is this about
Can't wait for the doujinshi.
Before the show aired, there were rumors that the director didn't like the way the script was going (too homo or something) and it was re-written. Take this with a grain of salt because nothing official to confirm was posted.
They've got a war to fight they don't have time to be buying new clothes for every time traveller they pick up.
So is this anime original or based on something?
Anime original but there was a game released prior, don't think the game has anything to do with it though as far as story, it has a few of the characters in it like Aoba, Dio, Hina, and Bizon.
To be honest, I was hoping it's based on a novel or something.
Can't wait for the next episode, so thought about reading it.
Can Dio predict the near future, particularly the enemy movements, or was that just a way of them showing how Aoba gains Dio's knowledge/skills. Aoba says something like so "these are Dio's abilities" but still unclear if he just meant his skills as a pilot or that he has some small precognitive ability.
dio reacts faster because he's a better pilot and a trained soldier. once aoba was getting used to piloting, he even comments he's no longer seeing dio's movements before his every time or something like that
Cool, thanks. I wonder what Aoba will have to contribute.
Is this really only 12 episodes? That's disappointing.
No official confirmation, just people going by MAL and how BDs are listed on Amazon.
Well no one knows for sure as there hasn't been an announcement yet, but the BD volumes only have 2 episodes each so: its either 12 or split cour. Maybe someone who is more knowledgeable will correct me but I think the volumes being sized that way pretty much eliminates the idea of having 24 episodes all back to back. Could still get 24 from split cour though, however a lot of people would rather have 12 than that
They might still announce it's split cour near the end.
No one knows yet but they are having a event at Anime Japan 2014 in March which is around the time it will end.
Anybody else think the little stunt Aoba pulled this episode with the forced disconnect will have severe consequences in the next episode?
My guess is that Dio's brain or 'potential' or whatever gets affected and this means that even when he and Aoba connect again, their combat capabilities will not be as good as in episode 1 or 2, meaning even common grunts will be a challenge for them from now on.
This means that Aoba will need to properly train and improve his own abilities to bring up their shared potential again.
No, I just think that Dio will be even angrier with Aoba and the 2 will share choice words again. Aoba will probably understand the severity of the system and situation and become determined.
I thought it was more temporary. A daze similar to a concussion, without the actual brain trauma.
I imagine the most lasting consequence will be Dio wanting to kick the crap out of Aoba. He seemed content to ignore him as a civilian but the captain keeps sending him back out.
Sound about right.
Or Dio starts losing memories
They've got to do a better job as far as telling Aoba what not to do. The Captain seems to want things to just play out, maybe it's one way to get Aoba's true potential out. Aoba's father was a pilot if I'm not mistaken from the picture in his room, he probably has some genetic qualities that will help him as a pilot.
He was a fire fighter.
>/a/ is retarded and sees NTR everywhere
hey, stop trying to NTR our definition of NTR.
They need to decide whether to make him a temporary soldier or stay as a civilian. With the former, give him some crash course training and try to drill some discipline into him. With the latter, don't let him into the cockpit under any circumstances.
This in between is what is causing problems. They need him to fight but they aren't treating him like a soldier. The outcome in episode 3 shouldn't be unexpected, and I won't even blame Aoba for it.
>hey, stop trying to NTR our definition of NTR.
It can't be helped. We'll have to NTR him.
Well the next episode is something about making a decision. I think it'll address the issue of whether Aoba remains a civilian or becomes a soldier and begins to receive military training.
I just hope his depression over Hina being an enemy won't last for more than one episode.
Agreed. It looks like the Cygnus is pretty divided as far as what to do about Aoba. Dio and Lene clearly don't think Aoba should be near a Valiancer, the Captain and scientist seem to differ based on his perfect match as a coupler. The Captain calls the shots ultimately but he was sneaking around Lene to get Aoba back in Luxon. It will probably take Dio to say that Aoba needs to be treated more than a civilian, particularly because he was looking down on his civilian status before. Well, not really looking down, but certainly not showing a lot of respect to Aoba despite the coupling. He's going to have to come to terms that the system is ultimately their trump card and the only way they can even get to the base safely. Everyone's got a lot of pride in this show.
Why didn't you leave sticky notes in Luxon's cockpit telling Aoba to never forcefully decouple. Dio fails as L-elf, not even close.
Fuck off, both of you.
Indeed it is, they should have gotten a better artist that can actually draw something instead of sameface idols. Maki is the cutest.
[x]Touch fluffy hair
WHY DIDN'T HE JUST GRAB HER WITH HIS FUCKING GIANT ROBOT ARMS INSTEAD OF GETTING OUT?
AOBA WHY ARE YOU SO FUCKING RETARDED?
>Guilty Crown S2
You better not be fucking with me m8 I swear to god I will hit you in the gabber
Because giant robot arms can kill a person if you are not careful.
Her cockpit was exposed and she was unconscious. She could have fallen out if she never woke up to hold onto the seat or who knows what else. The safest option for her was to ride inside Luxor. Aoba cares about her, she's no sack of potatoes to haul around with her mech.
That was a really good episode. The battles have been consistently entertaining with just the right amount of surprises and drama and I'm able to forget at times that I'm watching CG so that must say something.
Also remove enemies of zog Hina is best Hina.
Actually, a lot of the fights have been in 2D, not CG, which is also impressive for a modern mecha show
It's a mix of both 2D for melee and CG for highspeed movement
The mech battles look great, I love 2D mechs. Just wait till captain earth which is supposedly all hand drawn mech battles
Secret Service chick seems to be calling the shots over Alfriedo. Cygnus captain fears Lene's rage and has to tell Aoba to pilot in secret. Hina was giving Dio a run for his money until coupling. Glad to see competent women in this show.
The mecha fights were okay and looked a bit better in half assed 2D. Hopefully there will be more 2D and less 3D-in-15fps.
There still hasn't been a good explanation why everyone is using UC Gundam tactics because apparently nobody has missiles, radar, or GPS surveillance but everyone is used to fighting with combat knives and halberds at Mach Breakneck; and that kind of urks me.
In the first episode RAGEMODE Bizon had a bunch of red pipes leading into his pilot suit. The gun that chairman durandal used this episode was the same color red. Conclusion: He was doped up on liquid nectorbiunobtanium.
Hina looked good because Dio wasn't really fighting her as much as he was trying to get to Fettuccine Alfredo.
I really hope that the laser weapons stay as one shot super weapons and not turn into beam spam. It keeps up the suspense that those weapons are actually super powerful instead of just spam.
Bizon went back to the past and he had a regular mecha rifle.
So I assume they will stay special.
They take a while to charge so probably won't become beamspam any time soon.
>not-Asuna Elmarit is moe
Fucking wish she would get her own OVA series.
That or the pipes are some attempt to copy coupling. They called Bizon's unit Proto-Valiancer 2 as he was getting sucked into the time travel hole in episode 1. Only Liberty have Valiancers right?
Aren't all the mecha called Valiancer?
If I remember correctly, someone corrected Aoba when he said "robots".
What's wrong with that? At least it would be honest about its intentions instead of dick teasing the homo.
fujoshit pls, there's too much homo already. anything to decrease it is welcome
Best girl gonna best.
Captain is too awesome for her to handle, though.
Not saying there should be more homo, but there isn't that much right now, is there? Unless you pin Dio as a tsundere (which he's not) I don't see any homo at all. It was mostly speculation from people looking at promo materials.
You haven't watched enough anime is BC is "too much homo". There's practically none.
Yeah apparently, she seemed pretty particular about that.
Aside from the terminology there is no homo between the characters, Aoba spends most of his time thinking of Hina.
True, but the terminology is quite homo. I'm not the anon complaining though, I'm not 14 so I can deal with it
So is this just a thinly veiled anti-Chinese show? It sure feels like one.
It's not just an anti-Chinese show, it's an anti-Russia show as well.
I fucking love Sugita.
He will survive, right? ;_;
I wanted to believe.
I'm not saying he's gonna die, but there's a bowl of pineapple salad that he's never going to get to eat.
Just cherish the time you have.
See I wasn't quite sure if Valiancers are just Liberty's mech, Alfriedo said something like "oh they are just Valiancers" like their units were better than Valiancers. You're right that Mayuka corrected Aoba when he called them robots though. Wait, actually, I think Zog units are called Beryls.
And anti part of Middle East (Syria, Iran maybe?). How did Sunrise ever manage to get over space Nazis in every mech show?
Beryls are what the Liberty's frunt mechs are called, Lee's is called Beryl Commander the other guy is Beryl Assault.
I kind of like gritty angry hard edged Hina, Lady's of war are kind of my thing.
Speaking of Beryl Assault, Jarl gets speaking lines but we never really see him.
I feel like this may be something that Watase Aoba does to him in small doses over the course of the show. Watase will probably kill someone unintentionally as they have those 'repeat encounter from the same enemy group' and this Bizon guy might be the insane-repeatedly-chasing-after-the-main-character-at-the-wrong-moment role. It may be that she was with him, but it could also mean that Watase gradually makes her realize she should change sides could be the final straw.
I can't think of the character, but I'm seeing lots of gundam seed similarities. I'm not entirely bothered by them so far yet
They showed him a couple of times, unlike the Zog grunts who get names but no faces.
Weren't they shown in episode 2 in the semi circle picture with Alfriedo congratulating them for discovering the new mech? I assumed the dudes on the left were Mihailov and Passo.
You mean Lasha = Nicol and Aoba will kill Lasha as he tries to shield Bizon from Aoba.
It'd be funny if he NTR'd himself from the future or something.
It's going to end that everyone goes back to the past. A short classroom scene with Aoba and Hina next to each other and the teacher introducing an foreign student or something and it will be Dio. Some inconclusive and open ending incoming.
Time travel reset ending is the easiest way to ruin the show, unless it's done well. I could see them trying to erase the war(s) from history with time travel.
So Hina ends up with Dio?
>Technically it's not cheating, baby.
>staring up Hina's skirt
Smooth move, Aoba.
Dio's a boob man. Aoba's an ass man.
Can someone link both the translation for "エシュティフト Guide" around the 14:47 and again near 15:00 mark? (エシュティフト out)
I have no idea what that stand for and I don't want to download sub just for one word.
i wonder why they haven't installed a speaker function on the mechs
Something like that. I think that Bizon just has a brotherly like caring for Hina, probably due to some terrible or strict upbringing or etc that makes him sympathize with her blah blah..
Braydon a Justice
Luxon a Freedom
Second cour mecha upgrade when
Battleship megacannon debut when
All mechs have beamguns when
This show is in dire need of a Rolo to fuck this vanillafag shit up.
I don't mind if Buddy Complex goes homo because both boys are cute. I only hate gay stuff when it's pandering to women like kyoani does,
