Can't they check the logs on Luxon to verify if Aoba is saying the truth or bullshiting them? Surely such complex robots have some fucking logs.
Third episode was awesome. I don't understand why people don't like it while they liked VV.
Gotta keep the drama going m8.
It's shaping up to be a decent show. Definitely a surprise.
Why would Luxon's logs verify Aoba's story.
>mecha generic log xxx
>fucking teenager appeared out on nowehere
>Sudden disappearance of two students
>Giant fucking robots in downtown shooting each other
That wouldn't prove he's a time traveller though and they'd probably just assume the computer was malfunctioning from the attack.
Is she your waifu ?
I guess Hina is mine, even if she's going to NTR best boy Bizon. I just can't resist long black hair and violet eyes and her being a villain. Also her voice.
I can't choose between Dio and Bizon yet. Which one whould be my husbando ?
>Aoba is 90 years old
>he hasn't slept in over 74 years
>bridge bunny gets mad at him for being tired
>has to pilot some crazy ass flying robot
>back in his day the robots were in his cartoons
>he played basketball all day
Aoba had a tough life.
>Is she your waifu ?
No, Dio is.
>they can actualy hear this "Hina" person"
>check the fingerprints
>Aoba is not the only one who used this mecha
Unless the logs, the fingerprints and all the stuff also magicaly disapear too, of course.
Remove Confederate scum
That was Hina's mech not Luxon.
But i thought he appeared in Luxon out of nowhere, Hina mecha looked way different from it.
I know I'm not supposed to believe everything I read on the internet, but I get the feeling that the person who said the show was changed a lot was right. If only because I get the feeling that Dio was supposed to be in Hina's place, and they captured him or some bullshit in the original draft.
I think he was suppose to replace Hina in the first episode and that's it. He wasn't originally a bad guy.
Where my Zogilla niggas at?
Oh there was official word on the changes from the original?
The rumour was that it was changed half way through you wouldn't be seeing any changes now.
It is refreshing to see that Sunrise has moved away from "the enemies are all evil and belligerent" that has always plagued their shows, isn't it.
So he got NTR'd by Aoba, right?
I'm looking forward to seeing what Aoba did to Bizon to make him go insane.
How about you stop pulling shit out of your ass?
That wasn't really a serious remark. Calm the fuck down.
Do not anger shippers man, they're all bite.
They're like locusts, chewing up all the good discussion about a show and then moving onto the next one
Episode 1 and he's already dead
is Buddy Complex the new Gundam seed ?
How can you even say that when Gundam is their most-milked anything for the last three decades?
>always plagued their shows
I have no idea what you're talking about.
I like the captain guy. He looks sleepy and not giving a fuck. Just chilling until he gets back to futurepast, where he belongs.
Why can't KanaHana ever voice a girl who wins for once?
Because KanaHana a shit.
It woudn't be Kanahana then.
You must have been born from rape.
Over the line.
We don't even know she if she participates.
She's fucking everywhere anyway.
Zegapain, Angel Beats, Ro-kyu-bu
Looking at the promotional art, I feel like it's going to end up as a 3some. so this fanart doesn't look off to me...
I hope she gets something out of it.
What if Hina goes yandere for Aoba and he actually grows to dislike her?
She's not even in the running, there's no competition. Aoba loves Hina.
>Aoba loves Hina
Hina is going to win, but isn't it a little too early for him to 'love' her ?
I thought you did that on purpose.
I thought it was fitting.
If that was an image swap then it still works surprisingly well.
I didn't. But yes. Very fitting.
You're jumping the gun a bit, but she's definitely the Feldt to Hina's Gundam.
Why is "Hina" in roman alphabet?
Image swaps are fun. I remember when I posted pic related and it ended up in a /tg/ thread.
Sage for off-topic.
He's gonna give Aoba a brightslap after that.
Is the crew going to get mad at Aoba and accuse him of being a traitor/spy? I hope this doesn't go 3.33 with it.
Studio 8 pretty much never has one dimensional bad guys.
Zogillian's motive for conquering the world looks pretty one dimensional to me.
Commander seems understanding
We don't really know anything about them other than that they have money and aren't afraid to use it.
All of their pilots that we've seen so far are pretty cool guys though
So he'll die halfway through, then. ANd Sugita.
The bro understanding guys always die first.
Suffering Dio is the best Dio.
>All of their pilots that we've seen so far are pretty cool guys though
Eh, I don't really count the pilots as the bad guy though, just a pawn for the higher ups.
Then it's working.
The only one who might have a problem with it is the bossy bridge lady. Even Dio calmed down at the end, though I can see him punching Aoba in the face next episode.
I think the Captain gets what is going on, and he isn't really breaking any rules or regulations he's ever agreed to so if anything happens it will probably just be Dio being a cunt or some bullying via upset wingmen. Maybe some cold shoulder from the bridge bunnies.
Don't see how they can get mad, he saved them all. They should get mad at the commander if anything, for letting someone they know almost jack shit about pilot their super secret Gundam.
There was the whole "consorting with the enemy" thing
>WHY IS HE SHOWING MERCY TO THE ENEMY
>Oh, he's calling her Hina, so that's probably the person who saved his life. He has no reason to consider her his enemy.
The captain's the only who's able to figure shit out.
I expect the Lieutenant Commander and Dio to throw a bitchfit, but they were probably going to do that anyway. Lee didn't order Aoba to fall back or kill Hina when he had the chance, so I don't think he'll care.
Lazy white male superior officer being the smartest guy in the room.
I fucking love this show.
I have bad news for you. It appears you have a chronic case of the gay.
Which buddy complex would you nice coupling with?
Is it happening?
HAVE YOU DESTROYED ANY ENEMIES OF ZOGILIA TODAY?
I would destroy Hina-chan's Zogillia.
>exposed juicy neck
I like where this is going.
He does have marvellous hair...
Damn it /m/, this is supposed to be /a/
Are you saying /m/ is filled with homolust bros?
I'm an American. Therefore my sperm could theoretically result in more Americans if properly employed. Americans are enemies of Zogilia, and in 70~ years the results of that sperm could have created numerous more enemies of Zogilia. I fapped this morning, thus ruining the chance of those sperm ever doing anything. Thus, I have theoretically destroyed enemies of Zogilia today.
You're welcome, Hina.
Why do enemies always look angry?
Pretty much, yes. Have you seen some of the threads over there? It's full of bear love.
Because we only see them in combat.
Will she get the Dio?
Damn it, I'm getting horrible flashbacks to the couple at end of 00 S1
I checked one just now, no homo but it feels pretty cozy.
This theory's been floating around a bit, but it's possible he's fucking blitzed up on a nectorbium/artificial coupling system that's making his suit glow red.
That's typically a bad sign.
oh great, fujoshits already took over the threads. they were nice before this shit. this board is fucking garbage, jesus christ
Was Bizon actually insane? He got thrown back in time, realized that he had a chance to kill the guy who probably ruined everything for him, then got increasingly frustrated when he couldn't hit a human-sized target, and finally learned that the girl he probably has a crush on was protecting Aoba, too. It's enough to make anyone loopy.
The fanart is limited but very good.
he CGI is really well done in this show, the complete air fight was nice
I bet there is no Alfried Gallant art ;_;
You never know. He's a pretty cool guy.
This is actually a rare case of CGI done well, it seems to blend perfectly with the hand drawn mechs. If the CG in other mecha shows looked this good I'd be pretty satisfied.
This show is boring.
When will it become Valvrave Mk II?
how many eps will this be?
Never, fuck off with your awful trainwreck shit
It's good Audrey. Stop having so much shit taste.
>Alfred is voiced by Shagia Frost from Gundam X.
I knew I heard that voice somewhere.
You have Samurai Flamenco and Mahou Sensou for that shit.
12. I really hope it gets at least 1 more cour, it feels like it needs a good number of episodes to tell its story.
What happened to you Sunrise? 50 episode shows used to be so commonplace.
Mahou Sensou isn't even a trainwreck when we know what will happen.
I can already see it
>muh Couple partner
It isn't? I thought it was an original anime.
No, we'll get nice thread with no shipping wars, no rage, no infighting, just lots of fun. And that scares you doesn't it?
The ones doing the CG is Orange, who also did majestic prince
No it's LN adaptation.
Go away Audrey.
Try and stop me, Bizon.
It's already got time traveling, coupling and Kazakhstan becoming a superpower. What more do you want?
>Kazakhstan becoming a superpower.
Tibet stronk m8.
12 will be enough if they don't lose track and planned it properly. The plot isn't too complicated, it all depends on how they focus on the characters. 50 episode shows had a lot of filler arcs that no one remembers by the end of the show, personally I prefer 2-3 cour.
>lots of fun
I don't see it.
Didn't they do Akito as well?
Akito has some pretty decent CG
It's an amalgamation of Tibet, Tajikistan, Tajikistan, Xinjiang, Tashkent Province, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan is the only one of those that's both independent and stronk! and also is not ruled by little girls.
Yes they did.
>Implying Buddy Complex isn't a filler show while they think of the next off the rails mecha anime with a 50/50 chance of being good or really bad
Buddy Complex feels really safe to me honestly, nothing outrageous and nothing really new either, although that isn't necessarily a bad thing. I don't remember any news about it either until like a couple weeks before it aired. It's seemingly 1 cour at that, even Build Fighters got at least 2 cours and it's a glorified toy commercial, more so than the average Gundam anime.
BC is very likely a split cour like Horizon was
It's already better than the show that had to rely on plot twists every episode to garner viewers. Let's not forget the bullshit like many cringe worthy moments like the kids ruling a colony, the sing-along episode and of course the fucking rape scene.
Then Season Two came and had unconvincing drama you would see in a Soap Opera or Gundam SEED. and let's not forget the student massacre which tried to mimic Kill em' All Tomino shock value which was very unnecessary in the first place because killing off characters doesn't make a story even better since Tomino killed off his characters because of his personal issues (i.e. Zambot 3, Space Runaway Ideon, The Ideon: Be Invoked, Aura Battler Dunbine, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, and Mobile Suit Victory Gundam.)
Valvrave was a colossal mess with many things written out or poorly executed and the epilogue left many things unanswered and unresolved. The only person I liked in the show was L-Elf.
They probably never have watched Gundam.
>It's already better than the show that had to rely on plot twists every episode to garner viewers. Let's not forget the bullshit like many cringe worthy moments like the kids ruling a colony, the sing-along episode and of course the fucking rape scene.
Other than rape scene, which I disliked myself, I don't see what's so wrong about those. It's only bullshit if you wanted something else.
Obviously Buddy Complex is in fact doing something different, which I don't dislike either, but you're comparing apples to oranges.
>and let's not forget the student massacre which tried to mimic Kill em' All Tomino shock value which was very unnecessary in the first place because killing off characters doesn't make a story even better since Tomino killed off his characters because of his personal issues (i.e. Zambot 3, Space Runaway Ideon, The Ideon: Be Invoked, Aura Battler Dunbine, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, and Mobile Suit Victory Gundam.)
Let's be fair here. Tomino didn't invent massacres you know.
>Valvrave was a colossal mess with many things written out or poorly executed and the epilogue left many things unanswered and unresolved.
Most of the ones they didn't answer weren't relevant.
>The only person I liked in the show was L-Elf.
Good for you.
I agree with almost everything you said but :
>The only person I liked in the show was L-Elf.
The gary stu? Really anon?
I knew someone would post something like that.
>L-Elf not in charge for 3 episodes
>Everyone acts retarded and the students are butchered.
>Everyone is saved.
The guy exposed the truth of the world, defeated Cain, build an empire and became a king in the span of 2 episodes, not to mention his super brain and super abilities. The writers favored him too much in S2.
They never gave a fuck about Haruto (bland personnality, inexistant backstory, quick dad meeting because L-Elf meeting his waifu is more important, shitty love triangle, unnecessary death).
But that's your opinion. Sorry for derailing the thread.
competent != mary sue
A Gary (or Mary Sue) Stu is the authors favourite character (who may or may not be the protagonist), mostly a character whom the author projects themselves onto.
I know. I just don't like using the term "overpowered" very much.
There's an actual Valvrave thread right now on /a/, can we keep this on topic?
Re sorry anon. I'll stop.
L-Elf and Haruto only beat Cain because of the interference and aid from X-eins. Prior to him taking out Cain's Valvrave main weapon, they were getting beaten.
And L-elf could not beat Cain in direct combat either.
Yes they are teki and it is your destiny to eliminate them.
Did this get any better after ep1?
Depends on what you think is better. I think it got better because there's more action, more of the other characters, less Aoba and less Hina lusting for Aoba's dick.
>less Aoba and less Hina lusting for Aoba's dick.
I thought he was the favorite everyone else got shat on.
1 is just the set up. I'd say it's better.
You do realize that Sunrise was one of the first that started that in anime right? To having well defined villians who aren't necessarily evil as they are opposed to the protagonists. UC Gundam has a shit of that, and War of the Pocket is from the zeek side.
This show is surprisingly decent.
UC was full of everyone is evil and belligerent.
Zeon was made to look pretty awful, Char himself didn't like the current Zeon and wanted to reform it.
It's true. Zeon? Full of assholes. Even Char was an asshole. Ramba Ral was like the only cool guy.
The Titans? Even worse. The most decent Titan defected in the first few episodes.
Do we have detailed official character profiles yet? ANN has some info but not going to take it for value since it hasn't come up elsewhere.
Zeon might of been awful, but the federation wasn't much better.
UC was full of evil organizations made up of mostly normal and well intentioned people.
Except for the Titans, everyone in the Titans was a huge ass.
This is also true.
Buddy complex is probably going to be the same with much less back story, because the U.S. is part of the something something something liberty and they have to be evil.
is this as fun to watch with /a/ as valvrave?
Might not be as fun, but still very enjoyable.
