>[Anime-Koi] Buddy Complex - 05 [h264-720p][80168FA0].mkv
Time for coupling.
It's time Zogillia bros.
Sooner than expected. Based Anime-Koi.
I think if more people would pick it up it would be more popular.
After the disappointment of Valrave nobody likes Sunrise mecha anymore.
Hina gonna die for not killing Aoba.
More like people aren't picking it up cause it isn't Valvrave.
Nobody wants to give it a chance.
It's really enjoyable. I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I'm liking this show.
Good episode. New girl on the endcard, Potential Dio love interest?
But Aoba is the only love interest he needs.
Probably just another mobage character.
I picked this up last week. The animation fights is good adn I got used to the character design, but I feel people would like it more if it had more character interactions.
Also Captain best boy.
Buddy Complex manga chapter 1 raw http://www.mediafire.com/download/b2ewee59de7ei13/Buddy+Complex+Manga+Chapter+1+RAW.rar
Why do i have the feeling that he will die at some point?
It's like a shittier version of Zegapain/Rahxephon with a sprinkle of shittier Gundam or Dragonar.
It really is a mediocre Sunrise mecha show from all standpoints other than the art.
How will he go out? Down with his ship?
KONEKTU WITH DIO
I was looking at this thread and thinking about picking it up.
Convince me to pick it up in less than ten words.
Or 5 words with an image
A challenger appears.
Another great episode.
Moe commandant is boss.
Ice Prince Dio starting to melt.
The gay is starting to show.
Bizon confirmed for quality husbando.
Alfred and Bizon best boys.
Which buddy would you couple?
Did Nicol die yet?
Dio, and I'm not even gay.
I like to pretend he's got those bags under his eyes because he has to deal with a ship full of stupid, hormonal teenagers every day.
Dat beautiful platinum hair. Tsundere appeal. Plus he's rich.
Amongst the non buddies, I choose Bizon : thoughful, perfectly devoted and faithful yandere husbaando with superior silver hair.
Maybe he stays up all night watching history documentaries and drinking brandy.
Dio is best buddy.
Is this like a yaoi mech show or something?
If it is, picked right up.
No it's not.
>yaoi mech show
Far from it. Only the terminology they use is kinda gay.
But it's called buddy complex
How can it not be about faggots?
It's about rape.
I'm in then.
Who does the best subs for this?
I really like this show. It's one of the few I look forward to every week.
Anime-Koi and HS are the only ones subbing it. AK, up to episode 5 is out now.
It's a real shame more people don't take about it.
Do you have brain problems?
I guess people wanted another Valvrave and were disappointed to find it was another generic mecha show.
>I guess people wanted another Valvrave
This is what is going to piss me off. /a/ wants to relive something extremely stupid like Code Geass. As of now, /a/ will see an original Sunrise mecha anime soon in the future that isn't a Gundam series and will assume it is the spiritual successor of Valvrave or Code Geass.
What was so special about Valvrave?
I've been meaning to watch it for a while and I saw everyone go apeshit at the ending but for the most part it passed me by
She's got a new hat!
The first season was a derpy fun wreck with great moments such as "jinguru bells" and the musical. Second season was a dull ride where nothing happened and then it just ended.
>mfw military discipline
Who zogillia here
Valverape was shit. I'm enjoying the generic right now. Random stupidity can be entertaining once every blue moon, but not again and again.
>tfw I realise I'm in the Navy and not the Air Force
I really thought she was gonna die there.
Death from paperwork.
You know this episode was really good. They're doing things pretty damn by the book but really well.
I like how competent the Zogilla Gorilla army is, it's not just the ace pilot even the mooks are on top of that shit.
How many episodes is this going to run, it feels to slow paced to be 1 cour.
One cour only for now atleast.
There is still a chance it might be split cour.
I think those are mobage characters
I'm feeling bad for NTR guy.
From the first episode he reminded me of Yzak from Gundam SEED.
Well shit, that was way earlier than I expected
I'm just curious as to how those two will even get in contact with one another.
Unfortunately, they are your best bet. Forget HS because Funi and Anime-Koi makes a few minor mistakes from time to time.
Just watch Anime-Koi because faster and then commie again to get the correct meaning in the dialogue sequences.
I want to know what makes Hina lose her spaghetti and Bizon get so mad.
I mean, past Aoba isn't the Aoba she fell (presumably) in love with.
One cour sounds awkward. There is too much to fit into 12 episodes.
He seems cute. He's probably evil.
And the live thread from yesterday
Also the 2chan thread: http://dec.2chan.net/18/res/24938934.htm
Doesn't Surise show usually get at least two cour?
I don't think she really got to know Aoba very well. It seems more like she probably fell in love with him from afar, or something like that.
what anon on 2chan thin of this show?
Can't read moon, but it looks like they had a fun time watching it
Wow someone bothered to save my gif.
Bizon is mad because Hina left him for Aoba and Aoba killed a bunch of his team mates but died in the process.
That's what drives Hina to go to the past and ensure Aoba gets there.
My AOTS did not let me down.
It just gets better and better.
Is there time travel in Zegapain thing your are tallking about? Are there better mecha anime with time travel? I'm watching this only because of time travel. Any other mecha that I should watch anyway? I'm very new to this genre
First chapter of the manga, pretty much just the first episode
It's yours? Did you try to throw in some dithering to counteract the massive banding problems?
I cannot into gifs m8.
You're late mate.
Why couldn't they get a better artist instead of the blatant Love Live sameface artist?
Damn, this episode was great. The scale of the battle was pretty impressive, it brought back the same feeling I got when watching the Karaba battles in Zeta and ZZ.
Also that charge at the end of the episode was a really nice touch; deflecting the beams by blasting water in front of the ship was a pretty neat move.
BGM during the charge was pretty good as well.
The character designs are just about the only thing that Love Live does right, though.
Personally I don't have a problem with the character designs (but then I didn't watch LL), honestly I think they look pretty nice and the sameface is nowhere near Hirai levels.
Anyway it makes sense for Studio 8 to go for a similar design style if it's part of a familiar work process.
Blode a best mobage
She needs to show up in the anime.
I believe there was some kind of time travel. Or was it dimension travel? Shit I don't remember the plot very well, all I remember is that a tomboy childhood friend voiced by HanaKana wins. One of her first roles too, she has that cute newbie VA rough feel to her voice there.
cripple imouto is a qt
>tomboy childhood friend voiced by HanaKana
Ain't that some shit. Those are some really awful odds.
Welcome to mecha
Hina better end up with Zogillia fucker or Dio or something so that it clears the way for Mayu to win... whoever the main character is.
The OP song is so 90s it's crazy.
no megami or nyantype posters of the girls?
>Say "Connect with Dio"
>Say "Connect with Dio"
>Eh, what did you say?
>Say "Connect with Dio"
>Say "Connect with Dio"
>Hello Dio, I'm Watase Aoba.
>Say "Connect with Dio"
>Oh my god, did you see those robots?
>Say "Connect with Dio"
>Hey Dio, do you know Hina?
I feel sorry for her.
Aoba barely even acknowledges her existence, and clearly doesn't think about her as a girl. All he sees is Hina.
She's Sochie 2.0 in terms of being romantically outmatched.
Of course, you could just take this as an effect of the show not handling character interactions very well.
I wish that people would stop being so fucking obsessed with having stupid gimmicks in their mecha shows
>b-but its generic
No, it's just trying to be competent instead of going full retard for your enjoyment
You can't have a BC thread without this
WHY ARE THERE SO MANY BEST GIRL PILOTS IN A FUCKING MOBILE GAME?!!
this is why your series is failing, Sunrise!
DEATH TO ZOGILIA
Eh, I kinda felt the same way at first, but after actually catching up on the show, I like Hina and Mayuka enough that the fact that the former is the only female pilot doesn't really bother me.
I still want not-Eli to show up, though.
I wonder how his mother looked like
Why's the commander so smooth
>No one to couple with Mayu
Pair the spares?
can't wait for the ntr next episode
Aoba will get captured.
He will turn out to be this guy, won't he
Aoba and Hina will end on a deserted island alone.
Damn, how can this show afford such big battle sequences every episode, this is pretty great
That's enough fuel for yaoi.
I can picture it now:
>Aoba standing there with an erection
>Dio walks in
>"CONNECT WITH DIO"
>Dio bends over and says "ACCEPT"
>cue that epic music that plays whenever Aoba&Dio couple up and wreck shit, you know the one
>Mayuka walks in and sees them
>She's being NTR'd but doesn't care because she's secretly a BL lover
>She says "NICE COUPLING" over and over while masturbating to the sight of Aoba and Dio going at it.
That guy was a moron with ambition. This captain is the laid back lazy guy who knows what to do when it counts.
We Full Metal Panic! now
hey anon, what if Dio's grandmother is Aoba's sister?
I prefer my couplings to be a little more vanilla, with a little build up.
But I like your enthusiasm.
did that look get you a bit hard too?
I think she's Dio's great-grandmother. >>101098935
they're never going to appear!
this is the worst tease they ever done!
This one did
Nah, no time travel. Zegapain had a matrix-esque twist. Great show, if you can get past the horrible CG.
The coupling system is fucking bullshit and so is the deflecting of several large laser beams.
Even Gundams get damaged from main beam cannons on warships.
It's funny that they still haven't had a conversation with each other that isn't bickering or gun pointing
This anime ignores safety protocols.
How was Aoba suppose to clean an escalator while it is still moving?
Do you know how dangerous escalators can be?
Dio take off those silly glasses
I'd just keep the brush still while the escalator cleans itself
But it is part of his cosplay
If this (god please no) is only 12 episodes they better get a move on it with Hina and Aoba, or else its gonna end in infinite time loop
Would you teki her zogs
They are having an event at Anime Japan 2014 in March so they might announce something then.
>only 12 episodes
Even 2 cours wouldn't feel enough for this.
No, I'd Buddy her Complex.
Would Aobo need a grappling hook to clean the hanger on the right and left of the escalator?
I feel its pointless to clean the hanger when it is only going to get dirty again from all the car wheels and trucks driving onto it every single day.
If I were the ship designer, I would just coat the hanger with a coating of silver because silver has natural anti-bacterial properties, no joke, that scientists are still trying to explain how and why.
That way, there wouldn't be such a dire need to clean the ship everyday.
Aoba's building his harem one by one
Why didn't they just kamikaze attack the enemy ship?
That enemy ship contains like the most high ranking Zogilia members and strategists in the region?
Taking them all out would hurt Zogilia a lot.
With the one of a kind high tech ship that carries the hope for the war? Yeah great plan
The captain is too chill for that.
Why didn't they just kamikaze attack the enemy ship?
That enemy ship contains like the most highly advanced Free Pact Alliance technology and their researchers in the region?
Taking them all out would hurt the enemies of Zogilia a lot.
Alfried's chances of survival are about 0%.
There seems to be some more fanart this week than before
I am more surprise why didnt they blast the Zogilia main ship when they flew over it
they're making all of these characters too likeable. it's going to hurt when they start dying
I feel like I'd enjoy this more if Aoba and Dio were bros and not just bickering the few times they talk.
At least Dio's imouto is cute.
If this is only 12 episodes, the end is going to be a goddamn blood bath
They could at least damage the Zogilia's main ship's engines so they would be forced to make repairs and Aoba and his crew could have an easier time escaping.
Well I guess any shot fired at the position would kill everyone on board, which kinda ruin the story
Dio went full dere for Aoba so they'll be talking more and bickering less.
The third guy could cause some trouble, though. But then end up helping with them bonding in the end.
I seriously hope that isn't who I think it is.
It is. I'm as scared as you are.
I sure hope so, but it doesn't look that way. Certainly not next episode with a new pilot being introduced
that's pretty well made oi
Why can't he just go and stay go?
I bet that hair-clip is actually a device that causes spaghetti spilling.
He has a very frightening lewd Dio pic that you may not want to see.
did this one provide an explanation for why kids are piloting mecha? or has it become so commonplace in anime that they just don't bother anymore? i don't really mind either way but please entertain frodo for a moment
Age doesn't matter when you're a soldier and there's a war. There's plenty of adult pilots too.
Even the enemy are pretty great. Bizon is a pretty good guy before he goes crazy
That's a very good question.
I can't get worse than his VVV stuff can it? Can it?
I guess Mayu can choose from Bizon, Jarl, Lasha, Tarjim or new red-head coupler. Bizon best husbando material but he should heel-face turn and become Fiona's guardian. That's if he retains any sanity by the end.
That 2cm nod of appreciation.
blonde girl, when?!!!
Glasses a cute.
I like that all the Zogs all still trust Hina, except the head bitch, which they seem surprised and mad about. I think there's definitely some future conflict with that. Aoba really screwed Hina over.
Theres a war, he's 18, and he is fighting. Happened in WWII as well. Perfectly normal
It can't. Nothing can beat those horrible Haruto 4komas and L-elf pictures. The pic anon is talking about is R-18 sexualized Dio in his disgusting style.
This lewd art is way better
I like how the Zogs aren't cartoon villains. They could almost be the protagonists
>Aoba really screwed Hina over
Those names are in reverse order buddy
Meh, 16 year olds snuck in and fought during WWII as well. When its a total war like that, really don't have many options, everybody just about has to fight
Who's doing the connecting?
Post it. For the rest of us.
Do you rike it?
Knock yourself out.
Hina could've been a normal brave Zogilia soldier and fought for power and domination, but now Aoba's ruined her reputation. It's injustice!
Third guy will be the first one to die.
>why not just kamikaze
I think it's because they want to live.
probably the worst decision they ever made by not including them
this series plus a bunch of original IPs this season are flopping badly
But why? He's so damn cute.
That's not Lee
And then Dio will bravely rescue him!
>hina's shitty hairstyle with the fringe inbetween the eyes
Why does Anime keep doing this?
More like Dio will capture Hina so Aoba stops obsessing over fighting her mech.
Because it's cute now go back to your rapejoke show.
HOW COULD THEY NOT KILL THAT SHIP. GODDAMNIT SUNRISE.
Sunrise always kills the wrong ships, news at 11.
We only saw the Cygnus escape Chitose base. What about these guys?
I want to do lewd things to that kanahana moeblob.
All dead obviously
They're playing this trope way too thick. At least show some mook Valiancers making it into the Cygnus.
They all died.
Zogilia went all out
Irrelevant to the story. Most likely, a lot of them died and the rest surrendered and are now prisoners of war.
Deader than Sugita.
But Fiona and her dad were shown to be okay. Fiona would be safer on the Cygnus.
Aren't they from the Cygnus? Pretty sure they are fine.
I feel bad for Mayu. We know she loses...
They did have the scene of Bizon telling them not to target the private ship.
Both for her and Bizon. Now that we see Bizon be non-lunatic on drugs he's a pretty decent guy.
Lunatic yanderes usually have a reason to be lunatic yanderes.
Do we actually know Mayu loses? I know that she will but when I look at it, its nothing like Bizon. We don't actually know what the hell happens with Aoba and Hina, or why she has to go into the past to get him to the future... or where the fuck she goes after that.
I mean, fuck, for all we know future-Hina is dead.
No one can lose as hard as Bizon. He gets killed by the girl he love(d)s. Is Aoba going to kill Mayu?
Mayu will end up with new red-head.
That's true, maybe they were captured instead? Prisoner exchange later if Aoba or Dio capture Hina?
The civilian ship likely booked it.
We don't actually know that anymore. Technically, they are back to a new future so everything can happen differently this time around.
No they seemed fine at the end.
>people believing there's hope for mayu
stop it guys. you do this every season. stop hurting yourselves. stop deluding yourselves with specious arguments. use common sense
I don't even like Mayu, her hair looks dumb
It's because it starts so strongly Aoba-Hina that it makes me doubt it will happen in the end. It's Sunrise, if it looks like an OTP it will go to hell in the end.
I feel bad for Aoba, he is gonna die for our sins.
Not that I don'r want to like it but Sargent Frog is getting another season, no more Gintama or Nichibros, and Valverave sucked. I wanna love you again Sunrise.
Yeah, I like Aoba. A decent mecha MC that will probably die.
New red-head looks too young.
god the vvv fujoshits all migrated to buddy complex instead of nobunaga, even though this is the better show. i must just have shit taste or something
oh well, mayuka a best. hopefully her and aoba gonna have supermarket sex soon
I hope so, I really like it in fiction when characters are pushed to extremes and seeing Hinas tears/rage will be delightful
>seeing Hinas tears/rage will be delightful
You are a bad person anon, I hope your internet provider cut your service.
It's a Sunrise show, of course there was going to be fujoshi dumps.
Especially coming from a series where the two MCs have to sync their senses or something and go into a power up mode called Nice Coupling.
Wasn't there a rumor going around that Buddy Complex was actually changed half way through to be LESS homo?
It will prove her feelings for him are (were) strong and pure. Whats wrong with that?
They've gone and given all the male characters love interests.
Aside from the terminology the show isn't even homo. So it was most likely a fake rumor, besides I don't think a newbie director would risk his career because he was pissed off at the direction the show was taking.
somebody has trust issues
mayuka a best. we gotta believe man
She is useless.
a so called useless waifu is good for bullying, which in fact is not useless at all. you should know this.
not every character needs to be piloting a robot you faggot
hina a shit
In mecha show they should.
The captain is a useless piece of shit then.
Man it hurts to watch you guys delude yourselves into thinking Mayu can win.They have made it _painfully_ clear AobaXHina is the OTP
That track that plays during coupling gets me pumped.
It's because it os the OTP that has me worried it won't happen. Aoba could die for all we know. Not that it means Mayuka is going to win either way.
It's great. OST when?
It being in the OP is almost a garuntee that it will happen. Whether or not it will end happily is another matter.
It could just be based on Aoba and Hina from episode 1. Aoba is constantly reaching out for her but she's forever the enemy. I guess every loop can be different, you can alter the future every time maybe making a different path with each loop if it's even a loop. Just a theory. Nothing against Aoba x Hina.
This captain is seriously reminding me of the guy from Patlabor.
He is so cool.
I'm also a big fan of the soundtrack, I really like Katou Tatsuya's work. CD Japan has the release date listed as 2014/04/09.
How retarded can he be? How does he not fucking understand it is not the same Hina?
He thinks she came with him, yeah he is pretty dumb and it isn't watertight writing, but at least its plausible
Dio's so cute.
Thanks for the date. I'll be looking out for it.
It's not even dumb. He has no reason to believe that she exited the time warp somewhere else, so logically she must be the same Hina.
He still has to be retarded enough to keep spouting "hina, it's me, aoba! can't you see i'm aoba! we're friends!" when she is shooting at him and obviously hates him. Even if he thinks she came with him you'd think there would be a point where he goes "okay, maybe this is a different hina". If not that, at least maybe consider the fact that she doesn't like him anymore. Does Aoba think Hina is blind and didn't recgonize him or something? Jesus.
Is that the bitch from Zoids?
Yes, and you better watch your mouth when addressing the best girl.
He hasn't had much of a chance to talk to her. I think he's starting to understand. For all we know, he might have some crazy idea that Hina is only pretending to be an enemy etc. and they'll meet up lately. I don't think he realized how badly she was going to kill him until Dio interceded. She could be faking the enemy as a double agent etc. it just seems strange how Margaret is so adamant on her being a traitor just on Aoba knowing her name alone. Maybe there's other evidence?
Just look at her hair.
At this point, I'm inclined to say that Aoba thinks she's being brainwashed by Zogilia or playing a spy like >>101488954
>She could be faking the enemy as a double agent etc.
Seems like a great idea to yell "Hina, remember me?! We're friends!" in the middle of a battle then.
Do you know what would be the best twist? If that actually isn't her pre Aoba meeting, and is the same Hina as post time-warp. That'd be insane. Much more VVV than BC though
>Seems like a great idea to yell "Hina, remember me?! We're friends!" in the middle of a battle then.
It makes me think this idiot has no idea that his mech and hers aren't in radio contact.
At first I thought his words were just stuff he was saying to himself but now I'm convinced this idiot thinks there is a radio link and Hina is choosing to be silent.
I'd lose my shit if they did that.
Or he's in complete denial. I imagine it'd be kind of shocking to have the one person you know start shooting at you.
Aoba's slow, not retarded. He's baffled as to why his classmate is suddenly trying to kill him after taking him to the future.
Male tsundere is always so good.
They were both yelling at each other though. Hina was getting pissed.
The hairclip will solve everything though.
Aoba is even worse than Haruto.
>Dio?! Hina was talking about you!
>Say 'Connect with Dio'
>Where are we Dio?
>Say 'Connect with Dio'
>Hey Dio, where did Hina go?
>Say 'Connect with Dio'
>What did you want me to say?
>Hina, it's me!
>It's me Hina, I'm Aoba!
>Hina! We're friends!
>I'm Aoba, Hina!
>I met Dio, Hina! Now what?
This dude has to be literally retarded.
They weren't actually communicating though, you realize this yes?
But did he not read any fiction in his life?
Maybe it's just me being presumptuous but once you get past the initial "I've time traveled" shock, you'd think any rational and well adjusted person would start thinking along possibilities introduced by the very mechanic of time travel.
There was no communication. Hina took Aoba's refusal to fight as him underestimating and or provoking her.
He doesn't seem the type to indulge in much fiction. He plays basketball, studies to get good grades, spends lots of time with his friends, etc.
He's a sports buff. He's not like us nerds who have time reading fantasy and sci-fi when he's out playing B-ball with his buddies.
Obviously they weren't communicating. But Hina was doing the same thing he was doing too.
You could read an awful lot of fiction without encountering time travel.
Especially time travel where two people travel in time together but then wind up in different place-times.
>He doesn't follow everything according to my line of thinking. He must be retarded.
When a couple of mechs who were up to no good, started making trouble in his neighborhood?
>They both autistically imagine that their robots have magic radio channels.
As if they couldn't be OTP any harder.
Make the whole song
Seriously, he even moved 70 years into the future to get away.
Aoba is clearly not the smartest bulb which is fine because like this guy said >>101489776 he's just some sports guy. It's his character.
Hina seemed like she was just annoyed at the situation and just venting out while Aoba really seems like he's trying to converse with the enemy suit.
Autism and Mecha goes hand-in-hand for Sunrise.
Well fuck, I feel retarded for typing that. You know what I mean.
You are my smartest bulb, anon.
You're really not the sharpest bulb in the tool shed are you
>I-It's not like I'm grateful or anything. Baka.
It also sets up a conversation point btw Aoba and Dio. Dio asked him this episode why he's so obsessed with that mech. Aoba will begin to be believed he really did come from the past as well as interact more with Dio. Solving Aoba's Hina problems will be a key to coupling and saving their asses because they won't be able to couple if Aoba continues to fight like this with Hina every time.
I think the red hair will make them grow close to each other too if they force him to couple with one of them and it ends up badly.
>/a/ wants to relive something extremely stupid like Code Geass. As of now, /a/ will see an original Sunrise mecha anime soon in the future that isn't a Gundam series and will assume it is the spiritual successor of Valvrave or Code Geass.
Not exactly. It's less about being stupid (since that applies to most anime, mecha or otherwise, with few exceptions) and more about being over-the-top. Which Buddy Complex isn't. I think the Valvrave comparison is pointless. .
The episode was great, but fucking hell, when will Aoba finally get it in this thick skull that Hina currently really doesn't know or cares who he is!?
It's gonna piss me off if the same fucking thing repeats again when they next meet, him telling her 'It's me, Aoba!' and just letting her attack him while Hina just goes 'Die Zogilia no teki' and 'Are you making a fool out me of me!?' a-fucking-gain.
Well, they stop shouting at each other eventually.
It's only a matter of time before one is captured and they finally have a chance to talk.
I'm pretty sure Aoba will get captured. With Luxon in their possession, the Empire attempts to copy the tech while they learn that Aoba is 'from the past'. They don't believe him at first of course, but Bizon investigates further and discovers it's true, which also explains how he knows about Aoba and where to find him in 'the past'. Hina of course also finally gets to meet Aoba and some shit will happen where he'll save her life or something and she'll come to accept his story that they know each other as true. Something else major also will happen to show why Hina suddenly switched side. If they explain the reason as only because she fell in love with him, I won't have a facepalm hard enough for my forehead though.
>cue that epic music that plays whenever Aoba&Dio couple up and wreck shit, you know the one
Bizon was sent to the past by accident though. He was sucked in because his unit was defective and couldn't accelerate.
Imagine Dio's face when he goes to retrieve Aoba and finds him with Hina.
He'll be back to full name basis.
Bizon doesn't know Aoba is from the past ya dummy
>starts with A and ends with A
Those homo doujins will be fun to read.
I don't think you read his post correctly.
They'll making coupling mechs for Hina and Bizon. The reason Bizon is so messed up in the future is because Hina kept forcing decouplings.
> but Bizon investigates further and discovers it's true, which also explains how he knows about Aoba and where to find him in 'the past'
From ep 1 itself
>I've traveled across time?
>In other words, this is the past?
Bizon running into Aoba was an accident. Well, maybe not an accident so to speak, but he definitely didn't plan it.
But he specifically searches for Aoba in his super-advanced hacking interface soon after he arrives.
>tfw that artist tweeted my silly Link shop and could be watching us right now
an animator from the show tweeted that?
Maybe because FutureAoba from where Bizon came from is a trouble geezer and he thinks it would be a good time to get rid of him.
Or maybe he's aware that Aoba is a time traveler.
Nah it's just some pixiv artist
I would be afraid if they animated a show
It's the artist of >>101473381 and >>101474826 but I don't know what he does for a living.
something disgusting i'm sure
I'm glad this show managed to grab a few fans and watchers. Sometimes you can't be so lucky.
Also here's moe Bizon
Your shop was pretty awesome and spot on, however, I'm scared to know what it has started.
I think ( just speculation ) that not much is known about the time portal thing they used, considering if I remember correctly they got sucked into it unwillingly in the first episode.
My guess is when they went back into the future, they actually appeared earlier than where Hina was originally from. This would explain why Hina is alive, and why Dio doesn't know who Aoba is.
I'm probably wrong though.
>Having to wait another week for a new episode
This is the most I've enjoyed a show in quite some time
Close to Bizon's face when Hina opened the door and he not so secretly was waiting for her/listening in.
Nothing serious I believe. Time traveling aside, I think I'm the only one who can't unsee Link because of Dio's haircut. I keep imagining the stupid green cap whenever he doesn't have the helmet on, it's actually quite disturbing.
I think that's a good theory, actually. Hina went back a couple of months before Bizon arrived when she traveled. Bizon was using some sort of prototype too, so he was from a futurer future.
I wish there were more of us during the stream, it felt so lonely.
I feel ya, Fiona looks like a loli in Twilight Princess too, she might have been Link's sister actually, Ilia IIRC.
Well it's still pretty small now, this thread is 12+ hours old. Maybe if it gets a second cour and keeps this steady momentum, it'll get pretty big.
Also, I wish I understood moon
I love it when she says this. Must be because of her sweet voice.
Is Fengy still streaming it?
He's too cool, and people want the cutie to be the captain.
Title: Aoba-kun plays by himself.
Aoba: Connective Dio!!
Aoba (in falsetto): Acception!!
Dio puppet: (opens and closes mouth)
Yep. Also two justin channels.
Thanks, will watch this week's.
I'll have to come into this one. The /m/ livestream is me talking to myself.
It's one of the shows I look forward the most every week. Too bad it's just 13 episodes. Let's hope it comes to a good conclusion.
Buddy complex is the show I'm enjoying the least this season ( not to say I don't like it ). Have you even watched anything else?
Are you watching three shows or something?
Seven, I suppose if I counted pupa buddy complex would be above that.
Were the split cour China rumors ever confirmed?
I don't think it's amazing or anything, but it's better than I was expecting, and I do find myself looking forward to it quite a lot. The other shows I'm watching are adaptations so I already know what's going to happen.
Funny how bombs are still mainstream in future warfare when extremely large beam canons already exist allowing you to shoot and cause destructive damage at a far distance while in the case of bombs, you have to pilot your warship above a city in order to drop them.
Just feels like an asspull.
Dio's hometown could have been destroyed at a distance and no need to risk your ship by flying in close to ground to the extent you could hit a local skyscraper or high rise apartment if you are not careful and risk damage from anti-aircraft weapons that become more effective the closer you are to the ground.
Bombs are stand-off weapons nowadays. Look up the JDAM and JSOW.
>just 13 episodes
Why would you trust ANN?
They've established that those big beam weapons are fairly new, experimental, and very intensive.
This is 70 years into the future we are talking about, though, where mechs are mainstream and there is some kind of new energy source that looks like some kind of alien diamond superior to nuclear power.
I just find it silly carpet bombing is still a tactic when I'm sure bombs are millions of dollars more expensive than energy beams that can cause the same damage and actually are rechargeable whereas we bombs, they are not able to be recharged and have to built all over again.
What? Is it a lie then? I have no idea.
It will be split cour
Why would dumb bombs be expensive?
Well, the side who's doing the bombings are future Russia-China and they tend to stick to tried and true tech and tactics.
They aren't. He's just an idiot talking out of his ass.
This is true.
Source: I'm a Zogilian from the future
>beams that can cause the same damage
Do you know what a laser is? They cut through things, they don't cause an explosion when something gets in their way.
Hina is that you?
Same reason why the American military buys hundred dollar shovels when an average citizen can get the same shovel for 20 bucks.
The mechas in BC don't use beam spam a lot. They use actual ammo and close combat often. The huge ass laser beam the enemy has is new tech not available for everyone.
If it is split cour I really hope they don't do rewrites. Every Sunrise original split cour seems to be worse in the second half.
>yaoi mech show
Why do we need shovels? Bury the dead? Cover up shit?
Just don't let Ichiro Okouchi write any plots,then everything will be alright
Superior Zogilia technology.
Cover up the dead.
What are the chances that Mayuka will win?
But I said energy beams in my post and never specifically said laser beams.
And the same thing won't happen to your cutting edge lasers? The Zogilians probably wanted to maximize air to ground damage and a good and cheap way is to use bombs and not ranged weapons that lose their purpose when you're flying right over them anyway.
energy beams are laser beams, they are not designed to cause maximum AOE damage like bombs.
Without wanting to start any sort of stupid fanbase discussion around comparisons, I'd like to point out that Aoba is Shoko with brain problems ideas and Dio is Haruto with his mother killer complex.
The bombs couldn't even kill Dio's sister, proving how shit they were at killing eveyone.
Cutting edge lasers would have made sure Dio's sister would have died.
What is manifested energy? Beams are always photons/lasers.
How are you sure they are lasers?
Firce fields already exist in this anime.
How do you know the beams fired in this show are purely lasers and not the energy being gathered from the power source of this future aka those weird looking crystals someone dug up back in the first episode?
She didn't die because the plot demanded it. At least her mom did.
Leave Fiona out of your lust for killing lasers.
She didn't even get any burns.
Dio's sister getting into a car accident or falling off a horse and surviving it is more believable than surviving a carpet bombing.
At 3:07 lazy captain says this line
>kore chou hoku teki sochi te kuto de nanto ke nara nai
HS has this as
>Can't we just take care of this by calling these extralegal measures?
And Anime-koi has this as
>Can't I just sign these without reading them?
Which is correct/more correct if any?
Even if the beams are made up of some physics defying material sunrise pulled out of their ass, it doesn't change the fact that a beam is for piercing and cutting whereas a bomb is designed to cause as much damage over a wide area as possible.
I want them to name a lifting anime and draw all of the equipment like this. The ass rage would be glorious.
Bombs could cause debris to fall on her legs and crush/impair them. Beware of falling rocks, never forget Marcus!
No idea. I like Hina and Mayuka-chan though. I'm fine with either. The only problem I see is they'are both from the future so I don't know if it will play well.
This is future Russia/China/Mongolia/Syria. Current Russia still uses tanks from WW2, why should a future one be any different and not stick to bombs? Maybe they want to conserve their resources...
If google is to be trusted, then it's "There is no hair Nara whopping with this ultra-Hoku measures tech".
>kore chou hoku teki sochi te kuto de nanto ke nara nai
Write it in runes and maybe I'll do it.
Seems like HS is right because chouhoukiteki (超法規的措置) means legal measures and he's asking if they can deal with it using this.
I meant to say "extra legal measures".
Oh, that's why I couldn't make sense of what he posted. Must be nice knowing all of these words.
Huh, it's weird how Anime-Koi got that wrong then. Though their line was funnier.
It took me a while but then I just decided to input the hiragana into google and then it became clear that the whole bunch of romanji was actually one fucking word.
Apparently HS gets the script to translate with so it's harder for them to get it wrong. Doesn't mean they're shit at times though. WUG typesetting being completely nonexistent for example.
Because the anime begins by telling you that China and Russia fused and became a new superpower on two continents so fast thanks to the abundance of the new energy source discovered on their continents that America found itself wedged up into a corner like a cornered rat, forcing itself to ally with Japan, and despite the alliance, America and Japan are still getting their asses wrecked until this Buddy Complex System was developed that was refined over a decade, while America and Japan still kept getting their asses beat during that decade?
Hell, didn't you see the loo of surprise when Aoba's other crewmmates were commenting how Russian and Chinese forced managed to make a a laser beam cannon intended for a warship into a mini version that could be held by a mecha pilot?
Taking this into consideration, it should be America that is still sticking to bombs because in those 70 years, China and Russia had outclassed America by leagues already.
Hell, look how many Japanese America bases keep getting lost to the Chinese and Russians.
The secret base got fucked and a major base located at Chitose.
Sorry, but America and Japan are actually the losers in this anime.
Even with the Buddy Complex system, Japan and America are losing expensive, critical bases while China and Russia have barely lost anything at all.
You get what you (don't)pay for.
I figured that it was, it was the one part that was wrong that screwed me up. If the spelling isn't correct, and I don't know the word, I'm lost. That's what happens when you learn using the internet and raw manga.
Glad you were able to figure it out though.
JP script transcribed from iqiyi: これ、超法規的措置って事で何とかならない？
He wants to bypass the standard law procedures regarding on how to deal with the paperwork. HS is the most correct option but AK could be an acceptable translation.
Yeah but it doesn't mean that they replaced most of their conventional weapons with those beam ones.
70 years is enough time
If the conventional weaponry still gets the job done, why not. Also, I think the bombing was for dramatic effect too.
You forgot to add they lost Scandinavia and parts of Eastern Europe to Zogilia. The European front looks to be in worse shape than the Pacific.
Forgot pic. Oh yeah, and Alaska too. Holy shit, they're already creeping up the homeland.
70 years later and they still didn't seem to have robots everywhere doing work for them. I wanted to believe that they could at least become little girls through cybernetic enhancement or something.
Do you have the other manga? It's in Maoh.
Mayuka is always where Aoba is if they don't end up together then something weird is happening.
>being a superpower in 2088
>carpet bombing unguided munitions on dense population centers
If there was a heavier word for heavyhanded drama, I would use that
Aoba is Hinasexual.
I know how you feel buddy but the romance won't be complex and Aoba is already otp with Hina too. Unless some twists occur then there's little chance that Mayuka can win.
She's always with Aoba because she's actually from the future and is trying to save his life. When he gets back together with Hina, he'll die , so she'll try to stop that from happening.
So Mayuka'll kill Hina, then Aoba will go back in time to stop Mayuka, but then it's revealed Mayuka was a Zog spy this whole time, and his own daughter from the future, too!
Being Bizon fag is hurting.
He doesn't deserve the promised bad end at all.
Spiral power confirmed
Every single sensibility is telling me that Mayuka will never win, but I don't care. The best girl doesn't win enough in my chinese cartoons.
Just this once, I'll dare to dream.
I don't know, looks like WW2 to me.
I'm worried that nothing is happening fast enough.
Aside from last week, it seems that most of the episode is taken up with fighting and stuff, so very little development is happening.
WW2 was in 1942
Buddy Complex takes place in 2088
Hina belongs to Bizon, youb dummy.
I wish ;_;.
What a shit NTR skank waifu you got yourself, my poor and pure Bizon.
I don't know why I always feel like I can't wait for the next episode. I never feel particularly excited during the episodes themselves. Maybe it's the expectation of what's to come. Also, I wish they didn't make it really obvious that Bizon is the time traveller. It would have been cool if they kept the viewers guessing. I originally thought it was an insane Dio.
Remember that it took a while for VVV to catch on, plus there's only the limited edition BD up for pre-orders now.
Yep. I'm surprised we're 5 episodes in already, it doesn't feel like it's been that long and each episode seems to shoot by.
Yeah, would've been a nice mystery. Although the ship and voice would've been obvious.
Because half of every episode so far has been a big long action scene.
Buddy Complex's writers are competent enough to mix the downtime scenes and action scenes. In every episode, there will be some sort of battle but it usually won't be the whole episode, which is great because it feels like the plot is actually progressing. I wish the Log Horozon team were as competent, but I guess it's also dependent on the source material. I enjoy it but some episodes just feel like a drag.
Why did the scientists make the coupling process so gay?
Why do you have to use the phrase "PROPOSE TO X".
It's making me physically uncomfortable saying that to another pilot even though I am a faggot.
>It's making me physically uncomfortable saying that to another pilot
Stop being so tsun, Dio.
Well BC is an action mecha show with lots of action, while LH was never supposed to be an action show, and yeah they're following the novels plot strictly, and also have no budget to speak of
And for BC, despite being "generic" and so forth, and having some problems with it, I really enjoy each watch and look forward to the next, it's just a fun show and hope it continues it's good streak. I appreciate them using their budget well, too.
The chief scientist was a fujoshi.
Most likely answer
I mean look at the ship staff all the researchers and logistics staff are women
Also, judging from the preview of next episode we're apparently getting another Coupling pair and guess what? They're also both guys.
Codename:V is right all along
/m/ is fucking gay
What, do you want a man and a woman to do coupling? Are you gay?
Aquarion did it, even in triplets, and everybody liked it.
I didn't like it.
Nah, the only correct way is to have a woman couple with another woman like in Vividred.
What a tweeest
gotta say, the fights are pretty well directed, they have great flow to them and really feel like... well a battle
>Hello, this is my first original Sunrise mecha anime.
Another episode with great action, this time with a very nice sense of scale and lots of destruction.
Also HanaKana trying to sound tough was cute.
They are desperate for homo this season. Sunrise will give a little pandering but the guys will be hetero as usual.
But there's yowamushi pedal for the homo isn't there? It's definitely closer when compared to buddy complex at least.
Don't forget Basugay.
>really obvious that Bizon is the time traveller
It's obvious? I must have missed something.
so any Nyantype or Megami posters of the girls?
Both are flopping hard so they dont make a difference
Bizon please go.
She reminds me of Natarle although a lot less bitchy
>Even with the Buddy Complex system, Japan and America are losing expensive, critical bases while China and Russia have barely lost anything at all.
Yeah, we don't know that yet, we odn't have a big enough backstory to declare such things. And if you're the guy upset about them using bombs instead of beams, thats already been answered. The beam weapons are brand new, and still are being implemented
Do you have a gif of Cygnus shooting the water that creates a barrier to protect against Zogilian lasers?
All I could think of was this:
>What, do you want a man and a woman to do coupling? Are you gay?
oh i don't know, maybe GUY-GIRL, and GIRL-GIRL would be nice
this is why this series is failing, and they'll be back doing Love Live where girls are supreme
No thanks, it's good as it is.
>anime isn't good unless it is only about cute girls!
If you dislike male pilots you shouldn't be watching Sunrise mecha.
>0 shit posting
I love Buddy Complex.
At least Bizon is loved by his fellow Zogs.
The threads have been pretty chill, I like it here.
That felt so good to watch. Seeing the icy female CO piss her pants over that near-miss gave me a boner.
The mobage itself has girl x guy couplings, so it wasn't designed to be a homo thing.
>Hirayama (producer) said in the interview that Studio 8 seemed to project "the bishoujo" image, but they actually wanted to challenge different types of anime. Robot anime seemed to be the right fit because the genre's different from previous projects like Love Live/Horizon and they have the right staff for it.
>The pairing concept comes from that living in this world is better/easier with partner or communities, especially after the earthquake. They also didn't want to use boy/girl because people would auto-associate that with romance, which there will be, but staff don't want that direction to be the sole focus as this is a more "traditional mecha with friendship, endeavor, and victory". He didn't mention why there are no girls pairing, but just that guy pairing fit their goals better.
>He also mentioned close combat will be hand drawn, but long flights and high speed movement will be CG.
What sub group has the best video quality? Everything seems so shit
So are you guys still buying into the idea that Aoba is related to Dio's father? Cause when he first appears in ep 4 as he walks out of the plane, and Aoba says
I was under the impression he was more confused with the fact that Fiona two seconds earlier called him father. Sort of like
>This guy is Dio's father?
That was my impression at least, I seem to be in the vast minority though. If he does turn out to be related to Aoba, they better hurry the fuck up if this is only 12 episodes. Too many plotlines and too little progress for 12 episodes
>I was under the impression he was more confused with the fact that Fiona two seconds earlier called him father.
You and me both, anon. I prefer not to think into anime too much, it usually doesn't pay off.
Yeah considering there wasn't any follow up to it this episode I'd say that's the case.
I don't think this will be only 12 episodes. If it was, Aoba and Dio would already have started bonding by now, time for side characters would've been cut, the real villain (the red haired adult) would have appeared and revealed the main plot goal, basically everything would've been done twice as quickly. I think it'll be a planned two/split cour, at least that's what I can guess from the pacing so far.
I hope to god you're right, but that assumes the show has competent story tellers, which we all know is not always the case
I just picked this up last night.
I'm disappointed as fuck its not as gay as the title suggested, but I'm surprised at how fun it is.
It'll wait until the second to last episode then go full homo, episode 12 is where Aoba dies and Hina (and Dio) cries.
Yeah, I like the way the story is moving, but it feels like it has the pace of a 2 cour show. It's hard to see it wrapping up in a single season without a complete clusterfuck end.
At least Aoba would get the pork before he dies that way.
Angel Beats, Zegapain, Ro-kyu-bu.
So what will happen in episode 13?
We do the time warp again.
As usual, the Intelligence officers lack guts and courage. I look forward to her turning into a shivering wreck of tears and snot in the future.
Next episode will begin with her under the sheets with Alfriedo. She's pretty much going to leave things to him after the almost death last episode.
Except they mess it up, so we get a happy ending
Either way. Aoba dies.
Worse, he's going to return to the past after he becomes bff with everyone and Hina falls for him.
That'd be pretty great.
They've solved everything, everyone's happy and then he's like, 'fuck you guys, i never wanted this, I'm going home'
And then Hina goes back because she knows she has to save him.
But that wouldn't work.
He'd know that Hina would come back then
He would go back in time just after the incident where he left, probably once everyone had finished loosing their shit.
The eye color is the same, also the voice.
It works if Hina goes back to a different past just like Aoba went forward to a different future.
He still has a family and friends that care for him. he can't possibly abandon them for a hoe, no matter how cute she is when spilling spaghettis.
>but muh PhD says otherwise
I don't think there will be anything stopping Hina to travel to the past with him.
>Hina and Aoba travel to the past together
>only Hina remembers all the shit that happened
>Aoba has no memory of her at all
Rom com sequel where she tries to adjust to living in the past and make him fall for her again.
>5 million yen
>sweet ass motorbike
>still has her mech
She'll be fine.
Ends with Aoba accidentally traveling to the future again, leaving Hina behind. Last scene is him meeting her on her deathbed.
Looks like we'll be dead soon, oh well. These threads are great and one of the most fun shows i've got to watch with /a/
See you next week buddy.
When is the stream anon? I'm always late to BC threads.
Sunday or monday, depends where you live. Open the live stream thread in the archive and see the time of the replies to compare it with the time in your zone.
ETA is 4d 17h 21m
Thanks kind anons. See you next week.
