... you can't be serious.
When does it air? I can't wait to see this semen demon in action.
>taller than Aoba
Delayed 1 hour this week.
Hina's Hinas truly are a miracle of the universe.
What a shit
Unfortunately I won't be able to stay awake that long...
I wonder how fast he'll die
Was it rape?
Would you buddy her complex
I would Buddy both her Complexes, specifically the one where she likes mad time travelling nut jobs.
I would Kana her Hana
(TL note #1: "Hana" means "flower")
(TL note #2: Flower is often used as an euphemism for vagina)
I just don't see it ending in one cour/season. They need to explain on how Hina grew to like Aoba and how Bizon became crazy and we're already at halfway through the show
I think it's pretty obvious how Bizon became crazy
Is everything pushed back or just Buddy Complex?
It's Natarle all over again.
Dammit I fucking find her hot.
so this anime has 1 or 2 cour?
Only Noragami and Buddy complex got pushed back an hour.
All the others anime got pushed forward and have already aired.
Suspected 1 cour.
But the pacing suggests 2 cour.
Why is the coupling process so lewd?
Damnit, I read trust as thrust.
Me too, anon.
>thrust and accept each other
The best time of the week has finally arrived.
needs more girl pilots
Why does everybody assume Hina will even become familiarized with Aoba?
The way she acted when she was in the past looked like it was her first time getting to know him fully, like she only heard from someone else what he was like and was testing whether he was worth it of being saved/protected. There is also the fact that it sounds like she made the promise to protect Aoba to Dio not Aoba himself. The only thing connecting the two as of now is Aoba telling her that she saved him in the future and that might as well be the only conversation they ever had before she was thrown into the past.
Because the setting is ass and the tragic torn-apart romance is the whole point of this silly ass show.
>tragic torn-apart romance is the whole point of this silly ass show
But there's no romance Anon. If anything it's horribly one sided.
It seems to me like she fell for him in the past while observing him, and not in the future
Based streambros, my gratitude for providing me with the appropriate guidance ever since CC's stream shut down.
On the topic of streams. Does anyone have the schedule handy?
Stream schedule or anime schedule in general?
On a sidenote: What happened to mahou.org?
Noragami is first though.
Dude, they'll have them fall for each other in the future just to really rub it in when Aoba dies.
What times are sub groups usually on this?
Is the earliest horriblesubs?
>yfw da Mayuka wins da Aolympics.
Last week Anime-Koi was the first one to get it out, but the translation had some mistakes in it.
>mfw anyone but hina does
AnimeKoi is usually the fastest.
HS a day later, and more accurate than AnimeKoi.
Commie a few hours after HS.
Pick your poison.
dem japanese steel
Oh god, is that Yuki Kaji I hear?
>mfw Buddy Complex is going to have a beach/swimsuit episode and Valvrave hadn't one
This is so fucked up. Fuck off, Sunrise.
Gundam 0079 had one, but it ended up with Amuro's mom disowning him.
Twintail slut likes shota dick over Dio, there goes your ship
And Hina is friends with Pico.
Finally some Hina
Oh Bizon you.....
>Zogillia's Hina laughing
Watch he'll some psycho like Q-vier or Desil from Gundam AGE.
I'm hype now.
Not_Q-vier looks like a douche already.
Not soon enough.
>dubbing a douche
Color me surprised.
>that vice captain
I swear I saw her in gundam seed
>she sees your dick.
Also, is Aoba the super coupler or something? What a slut.
Natarle wants moe commander
Aoba a slut.
It doesn't help that they have the same personality
Dio getting NTR'd
Fuck, why couldn't they have called him anything but dio.
Everytime someone mentions him I get Holy Diver stuck in my head.
>no Valvrave beach episode
>Saki trapped in a shit show
>no swimsuit Saki
FUCK YOU, SUNRISE!
Is this the face of a man who is getting NTR'ed?
Does mc finally understand that this Hina doesn't know him. He was really getting annoying.
Dress is nice too
Valverave is a thing of the past that was full of broken dreams. Quit caring about it.
I can already see it, Fromm something, well, Q-Vier, is going to royally fuck up in the next episode.
Does this mean Aoba is the shota?
wow she just
Valvrave has finished, stop brining it up.
I really like the new Zog mech.
Hina would never do that.
Glasses is from mobage
I love how they seem to keep Aoba's existence a secret, even though he already opened his hatch and showed his face to the enemy and even told her his name.
> Fan girls surround Q-vier shota.
Why am I not surprised?
That image is kinda exploitable
Man, they are really pushing this mobage game.
>Sex with girls?
>Man, they are really pushing this mobage game.
so why the fuck can't just bring those mobage girls in the anime?
they obviously have more selling power
Moe captain is also a lady-killer.
I'll be so sad when he dies.
>Man, they are really pushing this mobage game.
Which is still not released yet.
Pink haired guy confirmed for Lancer.
Yeah, they really do. On the one hand, I can understand why they want to find alternative revenue streams and try to break free of total reliance on BD sales. But on the other hand, STOP SHOVING IRRELEVANT CHARACTERS DOWN MY THROAT!
He's actually taller than Aoba.
End cards = shoving them down your throat?
>But on the other hand, STOP SHOVING IRRELEVANT CHARACTERS DOWN MY THROAT!
just what the hell is Sunrise's and Bandai's marketing strategy? it's clear the mobile game has FAR more number female mecha pilots than the anime so why attract the fujoshi who are clearly not going to play the game?
Buddy Complex could have been what Infinite Stratos SHOULD have been; main male mecha pilots with lots of female partners
or another version of Godannar with many different pairings
NTR, NTR everywhere.
Fuck did I miss it?
Buddy complex seems to be an experiment. They don't seem to expect it to succeed.
Fuck. Raws hopefully soon.
>On the one hand, I can understand why they want to find alternative revenue streams and try to break free of total reliance on BD sales
Some other anime series are also getting a game, I guess Japan realizes BD/DVD doesn't sold as much for the last few seasons.
Jesus, how big will the player character cast be?
Sunday and Monday are the best times of the week for me. Buddy Complex on Sunday, and Build Fighters on Monday.
> One more episode passed until Bizon's emotional breakdown.
I hope he cherishes the moments with Hina and his comrades.
Oh, look, Eri.
I hope he goes full Yzak on Aoba.
The Majestic Prince mobage looks like it is coming along well.
Studio 8 should have put that time to animate Accel World S2 instead.
>the media team actually got the fuck out of the way and stayed quiet during the battle
I'm so glad, usually these sequences in mecha usually have the media team interfering with the staff.
When the factors are right like the publishers paying them for another season, I'm sure studio 8 will.
>Buddy complex seems to be an experiment. They don't seem to expect it to succeed.
they could have thrown in more active plot-relevant girl pilots in the action with the guys.
at least that would have made less mundane instead of the old "guys as pilots while girls sit back as bridge bunnies or captains"
How old is she supposed to be. They way anime women don't age makes it hard to tell.
Well it does seem like something I'd play on a bus or train. All I've seen from the Buddy complex Mobage are social links.
I'd say she's in her late 20's to late 30's
It's typical Sunrise.
>It's typical Sunrise.
it just reeks SO MUNDANE in its set up
they clearly have no confidence in this franchise
(unless by some miracle that manga version where it's actually about a boy-girl partner became way more popular than the anime)
and then he proceeds to eat sandwiches
does anyone have that gif?
For some reason Sunrise doesn't want to take any risks nowadays, as a result what they're putting out isn't selling well. When they take real risks it tends to pay off.
>justin in the OP
Nah. She's too cute for that. I'd pat her head in a brotherly fashion. Hina on the other hand is built for Coupling.
So we don't know?
Funniest part is none of these two streamed it
There is always toys.
They did. Your bad you missed it.
I used cc
Or make them relevant beyond putting them in the
>See you next week
>Buddy complex seems to be an experiment. They don't seem to expect it to succeed.
tiger and bunny all over again. Except this time without the Fujushi and Western Fanbase making it unexpectedly successful.
I watched it on cc's channel.
You missed it then.
I mean, I didn't miss and watched it on cc's
Are we still speculating he's related to Aoba in some way? His sisters grandson or son?
Why do I get the feeling the anime is just to introduce the mobage which will then become the TRUE anime?
Second season when?
When someone actually buys the BD's
Is this the face of a man who just found his son couples regularly with other boys?
Ive figured it out:
>Hina is a fujoshi
>When she sees the true love that Dio and Aoba share she realizes she has to make it happen.
>Dio and Aoba help her travel back in time.
>When she disappeared in EP. 1 she was sent to fujioshit heaven.
Happy endings all round.
Shitty chart incoming.
It's been established and pretty much confirmed that Hina is a fujo.
>pretty much confirmed
Valvrave threads sure were something.
WHY CAN'T I HOLD ALL THESE DEATH FLAGS TIER: KRIEMHILD
Dude, that's not Hina.
Dude I know.
She sent Aoba into the future to meet Dio and become the ultimate Fujo pairing.
So much for liking Dio. That fucking slut.
It's all for the best, if Dio gets a grill, then how is he going to find time to give his sister bed baths?
>gets sidelined by someone taller and better looking than him
Aoba has it hard.
Why? He is happy.
This is just an idea but somebody screencap it just in case:
The serie's name is buddy complex, so people expect it to be gay shit, however, in my theory the story will go a little something like this: Dio ends up falling in love with his sister, BAM, incest when you least expect it. Hina joins the Good people's Fleet and falls in love with Aoba. Mayuka wins the Aoba. Hina still travels in time to bring Aoba to the future, even if she lost, cause she loves him so much she wants to meet him even if he's not hers. She dies alone.
>Hina joins the Good people's Fleet and falls in love with Aoba
Nah m8. Aoba will get captured by Zogilia.
No. Fuck you anon. If Hina can't have Aoba, nobody can. Either he and Hina will find a way to be happy, or he'll die doing something suitably heroic.
Mayuka's a slut anyway, she does not deserve him.
>Mayuka's a slut anyway
>pretends he doesn't give a fuck about Aoba
>looks for him in the battlefield and saves his ass
>i-it's not like I want to save you, I'm only doing my job
Dio is tsundere as fuck.
>Mayuka's a slut anyway
The fan art is surprisingly good (with obvious exceptions.)
I would be cool with this.
Zogilla has the better uniforms anyway.
There is nothing wrong with liking both.
My waifu travels through time for love.
What does yours do?
Your waifu travels through time for the sake for her fujo pairings and nothing more.
>Your waifu travels through time for the sake for her fujo pairings and nothing more.
What purer form of love is there?
When will we get to see this side of Hina again?
Probably never, if this is just a one-cour show.
We sort of did get to see the kind Hina this episode when she went Deer watching with her friends.
Worse shows have got a second cour, so its possible I guess
It certainly doesn't feel like a one-cour show, if that's any consolation. Studio 8 has had multiple projects airing at the same time, and they've done split-cour shows before, so it's not implausible that this has already been planned as a two-cour project.
Ohoho, this is perfect.
Is that the top half of the picture, where the bottom half is Dio's imouto being spitrosted?
Is she a mash up of Saki and Shoko?
I liked that one plus the one with the Zeta Gundam with the Psycho Gundam and the one Setsuna with Exia and also Setsuna with Heero about to self-destruct the Wing Gundam. Hope we have one with Haruto and L-Elf.
Dio and Aoba being friends when?
She is a LOT less bitchy.
No, just Saki.
probably in the last episode
Bizon is Audrey right?
He's going to be an NTR'd version of Yzak from Gundam SEED.
>I never thought I'd die side by side with the likes of you Watase Aoba.
>How about side by side with a friend?
>I can do that.
>Haruto and L-Elf.
There's a few with A-drei and L-elf.
That's Mayuka telling Sugita-bro she likes Aoba and to help her out.
Blushing elf is better.
Raws are out.
can you post the ones with setsuna/exia, heero/wing and setsuna/heero
They only had Heero and Setsuna.
I bet it´s a 2 cour show since Sunrise is having a Buddy Complex event at AnimeJapan in March when the show ends.
I guess she realized Dio is a Siscon or gay.
dem thighs and ZR
There was a point where the Commander was too moe, and we've clearly passed it.
So is there any info on the mecha?
Bizon will console her.
>Bizon and Hina this episode
Shit was cute as fuck.
Team Alliance seems to be full of sluts.
>twintails jumping from Dio to the new guy
>Aoba coupling perfectly with Dio and new guy
The only pure one's are second-in-command and Captain-kun.
We will never see her wearing the swimsuit ;_;
Reminder that this artist is drawing some BC fanart.
Dio was NTRd twice in one episode. I can't wait for Bizon's turn.
>This is just an idea but somebody screencap it just in case:
>The serie's name is buddy complex, so people expect it to be gay shit, however, in my theory the story will go a little something like this: Dio ends up falling in love with his sister, BAM, incest when you least expect it.

Hina still travels in time to bring Aoba to the future, even if she lost, cause she loves him so much she wants to meet him even if he's not hers. She dies alone.
what about Hina joins the good guys, her coupling with Aoba is BY FAR the best ever than any of the guys
guy-girl far superior so they hire more female mecha pilots
WHY CAN'T SHE BE IN THE SERIES?!!!!
She's busy idol
>Why do I get the feeling the anime is just to introduce the mobage which will then become the TRUE anime?
it'll be a horrible, HORRIBLE troll if they introduce the mobage girl characters at the end of the episode that ends the series entirely
Watch Love Live nest season.
>Completely ignoring science-chick
So what separates this anime from all the other generic mecha anime?
It is フロム・ヴァンタレイ, I wonder what is the offical romanization for his name (no profile page for him yet on the official site.
It has Feeling Match and Buddy system.
Any thoughts on why PastFuture!Hina and PastFuture!Bizon both have mechs with something that looks like the "Buddy System" hardware installed?
I'm thinking it's an animation error given that it's unlikely that both Bizon and Hina would switch sides, but I can't say for sure.
I think it's clear the Zogs tried to copy the Buddy technology. But it made Bizon go crazy.
I think it's more that Zorgilia gains access to the technology at some point in the future, most likely by one of the scientists defecting.
Or by Aoba getting captured, which is how he meets up with HIna.
Unlikely that Aoba is going to get captured. Hina has to learn about Dio and want Dio and Aoba together somehow, and that's not going to happen if Aoba is the one who's captured.
It could just be that Aoba tells Hina about Dio.
>not noticing this during the stream
You need to train your eyes.
Dio rescuing Aoba and meeting Hina on the way could make it work.
But then Hina still sees Dio as an enemy. Something has to give PastFuture!Hina an incentive to want Dio and Aoba to be together.
You really think the Zogs are going to give her the time? They can't trust Hina and Aoba together.
Maybe Dio will make Hina realize what Zogilia is doing behind her back. Bizon and Tarjim both agreed they shouldn't target the civilian ship but in another episode the Zogilian commander was going to take a ship like that one hostage. They didn't even want to shoot a deer this episode, I think they don't realize innocent people are being killed.
Subs are still in Mongolia?
No idea why this doesn't get subbed faster.
It's actually good compared to most of the shit that gets speedsubs.
>Fujoshi bait with typical Sunrise plot and techobable
>Show where 90% of the male cast has an obvious female love interest.
If anime-koi fails to deliver subs tomorrow you can always watch on daisuki's youtube channel
I seem to remember from the threads before the season aired that most of the female love interests were written in later, because the writers/director were worried about it being a sausage fest with unwanted yaoi undertones.
You shouldn't believe rumors you read on the internet especially ones with no source
Babies new buzzwords? If this is a sausage fest I wonder what you call shonen series.
I don't know any shounen series that requires it's main caharacter to propose to each other to became a couple.
>hasn't read a shounen series about the power of friendship and teamwork
She's way better than Saki. Has piloting skills and isn't an attention-whore slut.
That's only because she's on the other team.
If and when she where to join the CTL, she'd be just as much of an attention whore.
How is she an attention whore? She was pretty shy around Aoba in episode 1 and seems to fight for Zogilia or whatever noble reason later rather than muh fame idol career please remember me. This isn't like Saki who blatantly kisses Haruto and then flirts with him.
If anything Anessa twin-rails acts more flirty and forward like Saki than Hina. She just jumps to the latest hit pilot sort of like how Saki noticed Haruto only after he saved everyone in Hito.
Haruto is more interesting than Aoba
(but also more annoying)
>more interesting than Aoba
Why would you think that?
Aoba is already the better character.
The only interesting thing about Haruto was that he lost his memories and died at the end. And of course being the sugar to L-elf's coffee, but that's more because of the dynamic between the two characters rather than Haruto alone. Aoba doesn't need Dio to be interesting, he has qualities outside of being Dio's coupler.
Also, Aoba doesn't inspire me to hate him. Haruto did.
Haruto was amusing. He had strong, possibly misguided beliefs. He never really changed or made compromises to his values, and that's what killed him in the end. He was a stubborn fool but died as he wanted.
He had this complex that somewhat reminds me like Sayaka from Madoka Magica. Meaning that a substantial amount of his problems were in his own head. Though, unlike Sayaka, he really was a special snowflake and had to take on all of the burden, so I kinda forgive him for that.
So yes, he was an annoying but interesting character
To me that's more interesting than Aoba so far.
Aoba is nicer and more likable. but.. that's all I can describe of him so far.
I hope, he's more than that, because well..
Most boring episode yet.
The other cast members have barely been elaborated on yet they introduce another pilot?
I'd rather they focus on the actual protagonists and leave the background characters in the background than getting sidetracked every episode.
Haruto was annoying. He never changed even when he damn well should have, and he was perpetually stuck in his episode two "I'm a monster!" mindset.
Haruto may have been complex, but he was a cowardly character portrayed as heroic.
Aoba may be fairly bland, but he's a legitimately heroic character in a heroic role.
The new pilot is even worse than a background character. War is going on right now yet some faggot camera crew treats the war as just a game and filming classified military assets.
If no one focuses on the background characters, less people will give a shit about them when they die or possibly betray the crew.
This episode is the most sidetracked so far.
Also, nice to know you will never be an anime director.
Well it's not really fair to compare Haruto to Aoba since VVV is done, if your going to do it at least compare them at the same point.
Aoba can play basketball (athletic), able to accommodate to his surroundings and makes decisions plus stick to them, isn't self-pitying, is a bro, and is fighting to get a girl/doesn't act like a total moron around females. I think you're mistaking Haruto's wishy-washiness as a character point, I wouldn't consider that as making him "complex" it makes him bland but annoying. Aoba, also sticks to his morals, he told the captain Hina isn't the enemy, he's not going to hurt her.
>people comparing Haruto and Aoba
They are fundamentally the same character.
>normal highschool student
>thrown into bizarre and unexpected situation
>both try their best to hide emotions from others regarding this new situation
The differences being Haruto gets in the robot out of a desire to protect his friends and loved ones. Aoba just does it because, well, he's got nothing else to do. His family and friends are all either dead or extremely old.
I'd say Aoba has it worse. At least Haruto was immortal and surrounded by familiar people.
Haruto was stubborn, not wishy-washy, but fine
let's just say Haruto to Aoba is like Shinji(Evangelion) to Ayato(Rahxephon) to me
and Shinji is a lot more interesting
there's no negative life-changing effects to NICE COUPLING that we know off... yet
Now.. if.. Dio and Aoba become the same person in the end
>Now.. if.. Dio and Aoba become the same person in the end
What are you trying to imply?
We already know that forced de-coupling cause brain damage. Vegetable Aoba incoming.
More like Dio is going to forget his imouto
No. Absolutely not.
Haruto was only really interesting from the second half of Ep01 to the end of the first half of Ep02. The rest of the time he was a wet, empty sack.
Aoba, as generic as he may be, is actually exerting force on the world around him rather than simply reacting to everybody else.
remember Full Metal Panic?
remember how they implied that Tessa and Kaname would get their personalities mixed up with each other if they keep "whispering" to each other?
Something like that
Brain damage or going psycho-Bizon route seem to be the shown effects so far.
>a wet, empty sack
And he deserved the end he got.
What does Aoba deserve?
>What does Aoba deserve?
A few smacks around the head. He hasn't done anything to warrant the same outcome as Haruto. Although Haruto did nothing wrong.
Haruto became memorable when he went berserk mode and tried to rape and raped people. Not sure that that's something that makes him "better" than Aoba... most of it is thanks to Pino and the runes not really Haruto himself. He could have been interesting if he went the insane route or destroy the VVVs route as was hinted for all 5 seconds in the show but it never happened. Aoba has a sense of humor too, this episode he made fun of Dio's acting skills. Haruto wasn't even funny, Inuzuka-senpai and even Thunda had more depth and personality than him and they were secondary characters.
>all that "Let's coupling"
Aoba deserves the Hina + Mayuka-bowl. Apparently he also gets to be a "buddy" tomodachi by episode 7 to Dio while it took 24 episodes and amnesia to get L-elf to regard him as anything more than a tool. I think it sort of spells out how bad Haruto was.
L-Elf was fairly cold and antisocial so it's not entirely Haruto's fault.
>Dio and Aoba "Buddy" Episode 7
I want to believe.
Haruto did nothing right either.
A protagonist who does nothing right deserves the death penalty for stealing my time.
So far, Aoba is much better.
Aoba is way better.
That said Aoba a shit. Bizon best boy.
Bizon should win da Hina, and Aoba should just buttfuck Dio.
On a scale from so dead to dead-er than Nicol how dead is Lasha? His grabbing Hina to look at the deer reminded me so much of Nicol telling Athrun to watch the school of flying fish from deck.
There's still Mayuka. Dio would rather his imouto or Bradyon.
Hey, let's wait until Buddy Complex is over before we get into who sucks and who don't.
This is a Sunrise mecha anime of 12 episodes, and a possible second season.
If you don't think that Sunrise couldn't shit the bed on this one, I've got a long list of dirty beds to show you. Aoba, so far is a basic, but decent protagonist, but lord almighty, if you don't think that they wouldn't take the chance to use his optimism into doing something stupid, then you haven't watched enough Sunrise.
But we're not really judging by doing something stupid standards here. We were going by interesting or better character. Besides Aoba has arguably done something stupid when he opened the cockpit with Hina even though it was understandable and not that big of a deal.
Was this Commander Ryazan? I'm not sure if I heard it right or not.
To be fair, Haruto was such a shit MC, it'll be pretty difficult to have Aoba sunks as low.
I don't see him becoming all angsty and randomly raping the bridge bunny for the sake of cheap drama...
There was not enough of the Zogs this episode.
Thanks for clarifying.
This filming videos thing was too much for everyone.
He's not gay so no.
Wasn't glasses wearing a Zogilian uniform in other promos?
They are wasting time and chances liek they could've planned another new mai-series
Even, If they announced it on fall season then they are beyond fucked including other shit with Tomino
I don't think they care about Mai anymore, besides Studio 8's new baby is Love Live
Where is my Sacred Seven The Movie ;_;
That's Studio 7
Then let Studio 7 work on the Mai-franchise, shit they need something to hold them or beyond fucked for a very long time
and what's Studio 7 availability in times like this
Seems to me Aoba having a fine time.
Valvrave took a lot of risks and was probably over ambitious
>tfw the franchise is ded
but there was so much promise for so much more
We subs now.

Are you retarded? This is every mecha pilot ever from 10 years or so
Early subs, Finally.
Will we ever see someone else couple up? Instead of Dio and Aoba all the time.
Yeah, in this episode.
Whoa, subs are early today
Stop whining. Saki was one of the few in Valvrave who got a good end.
Hina was so happy with her comrades. What did Aoba do to make her betray them?
Where do you get your subs? bakabt fails me every time
The power of __DICK__
You can't be serious.
I guess I worded it wrong, bakabt is the only anime specific site I know and it doesn't seem to have currently airing shows. I googled >>101847686 but figured I'd ask here before I download anything.
that time of day
The deer are the true masterminds.
You new and I recommend
>>>/reddit/anime for you. It's much more user friendly and everyone there will help you out.
Why does Anime-Koi allow deaf people to translate? The same fucking episode, not even 20 seconds later.
Who will win da frommy complex?
Why is zogilia so moe ?
Why did Aoba destroy that beautiful friendship ?
Aoba a worst-than-Hitler.
So how do these guns work? Where's the ammo supply. Why are they even using weapons that aren't built in the mech.
Does he have the cutest hair?
Why is this guy using a fucking bolt-action rifle? Wasn't this the future?
What did they wrong?
>Bizon shoots the deer, Hina gets mad at him
>Aoba tells Hina he's a vegetarian in the middle of a fight
Its 2088 and Zogilia is carpet bombing thousands of unguided munitions onto civilian population centers. Don't question anything anymore.
Because it looks cool.
You made me chukled.
Still Bizon best boy. he deserves to win.
Why would they need 3 couplers? unless they get a 4th one soon and 2 more coupling mecha one of them will always be forced to use Beryl.
You know what looks cool? A flying robot growing fuckhuge beam wings and darting around at the speed of light annihilating everything in its wake.
You know what looks stupid? Using a bolt action rifle on that robot.
Maybe they run out of guided ammo.
The rifle is just unpractical.
In case you didn't hear it Gavarock
Why is Aoba such slut?
Because he is from the pure past.
Why the fuck would you use something else than unguided bombs to carpet bomb? Why would you even want to waste billions of Z$ of more advanced weaponary on a simple carpet bombing of low priority targets (read: civilians)?
And? Gavarock has nothing to do with Gae Bolg (what the kana says there).
I can't wait for full ED to come out.
It cost more resources to fly a fleet of those airship carriers over the city and drop hundreds of bombs over a general area than it does to send a couple robot flight squadrons with long range beam rifle or even a single AC-130 version of the airship specialized for area saturation and bombardment. Despite the precious nature of the new uber-fuel energy source thing, Zogilia has no issue wasting excess amounts of it.
I'm in too good of a mood to care about your rampant shitposting
You seem to have missed the point. They want to make a show of force by causing wide spread destruction, not destroy a single high priority target.
Also, beam rifles didn't exist at that point. Yet.
Gavarock is supposed to be Gae Bolg.
The panic that widespread destruction causes is brought about by widespread destruction. If anything, a city undone by one bomb is far more terrifying than a city undone by thousands of rocks.
Using WMDs is a whole other issue and most of the time doesn't end well, because: nuclear retaliation.
What was the point of this shit? Why is Fromm needed when they could fly normally?
cockpit pictures? Also possible replacement for Aoba, who is unreliable and not really in the military.
Aoba is a man from the past, not in ANY files/data. You could say he's as classified as anything. Fromm was required to hide Aoba's existence. Also, I want to see Hina's reaction when she sees the promotional video and no Watase Aoba.
Oh that's clever. Did you think of that yourself or is there a manga/ln of this where it's explained?
Aoba is so moe.
>that slight pause before he figures out
I guess that's true.
They also both have very nice character designs.
>but there was so much promise for so much more
not in Sunrise's case but If they do want to continue the franchise is make an announcement to the new mai-project immediately for a season special episodes till the full series in fall
lol, nice resembled.
That's not what sausage fest means.
>Bizon wins de Hina
>Who will win da frommy complex?
I'm betting on Death.
No blush = no romantic feelings towards
And it's already confirmed that he won't win.
>You will never couple with Dio
just posting shit
Why would anyone want that?
Even Hina had to deceive Aoba into coupling with Dio, the dick.
>Fromm badly trying to flirt
>Everyone's faces when
Because he's hot.
Vice Commander-chan is the only good thing about this show.
[ ] Cool
[ ] Not cool
>varying degrees of want.jpg
BizonxHina us much better than AobaxHina, fuck this shit.
Watching the godafull ED
I'm glad the OP and ED are the worst parts of the show though.
Anon, I'm as angry as you as it is possible to be when discussing relationships between fictional characters.
>introduction of another pilot for five guys squad
>show another aspect of the coupling system
[ ] Not Cool
The only way it could be cooler is if it had a bayonet on the end.
Aye, if he ditched the shield it would probably look better too.
>sacrificing defense for aesthetic
Dude, this is mechs, this is all about aesthetics
>not wanting Dio to accept your proposal
You gay bro?
OP and ED look good to me.
I wish we had a better shot of her. Maybe she would have shown more of a body if Aoba was there...
>of her body*
>Don't hold back just because this is our first time buddying.
Manga was better than this yuri shit
Dio is in a bit of a slump.
It's more the songs that ruin it for me.
It's better when MC ntrs
Any SoD has a limit.
>0 shit posting
This happens everyweek. Based Buddy.
You can tell Rene wants it the most.
That's only because it's just you and me here though.
Make it three.
I'm fairly certain there's more than that.
There starts the shit posting. Make it four.
So, who'd you like more up until now buddies? From the girls I mean.
Who Hina here?
It's time to shitpost this thread goodbye.
What do you see in that slut?
She's just there for eye candy.
Hina is infinity better.
Soldier need not love woman
Only love Zogilia
Being destined to lose is suffering ;_;
Same with Bizon and Dio.
man this show is soooo fucking goood. shits all over nobunaga
too bad there wasn't enough mayuka this episode. here's hoping for next week
She has unconventional taste and doesn't judge a guy by his looks. I'm like that too.
Bizon plz. You're just mad Hina doesn't love you.
hina a shit, mayuka a best
>man this show is soooo fucking goood. shits all over nobunaga
They're nothing alike, why are you even comparing them? Please keep fandom wars out of here.
well they were both supposed to be the "vvv of the season"
So only four of us here?
Thats optimistic bud
I'll be honest with you, much as I enjoy this anime more than most stuff this season, I consider it a joke. Me and my brother were watching that trainwreck named Valvrave and had fun so we decided to watch this other thing by the same sunrise studio that looked even worse in the preview. (I mean seriously, Buddy Complex? Sounds gay.) Then the first two episodes or so kick in, man, I had a laugh.
>Completely normal highschooler
>Suddenly Giant robots from the future
>He's some kinda messiah
>Gets pulled into the future by a chick
>just happens upon a battle and a giant robot to use in it
>Just happens to fall upon some guy and shit happens
It felt really cliche as fuck, but it's just what makes it good.
This is a copy pasta. You should at least come up with different wording.
>Manga was better than this yuri shit
And I really like her for it
Nigga, I just took 6 minutes of my life to type this shit out and you call it copy pasta without even googling?
That's what makes her perfect.
I'm kinda disappointed we didn't get more swimsuits.
Do not bully.
>Nerd chick going after the Jock
This is not like one of my Japanese animes at all.
WHY CAN'T THESE 2 BE THE MAIN CHARACTERS
i want more about them!
>what about Hina joins the good guys, her coupling with Aoba is BY FAR the best ever than any of the guys
>guy-girl far superior so they hire more female mecha pilots
please let this be true
So honestly, who do you think will survive this show?
I'm hoping for Aoba dying, Hina dying during time travel and Dio being a broken man.
Six with me.
i want that Love Live-esque girl to be in the anime for real
stop holding her back, Sunrise!
if you want that dumb mobige game to succeed you should have introduced her in the series!
Not Bizon that's for sure.
I don't think this is a bloodbath-type show.The characters who raise obvious death flags are probably toast: Fromm, Sugita, Alfried Gallant, and Hina's other non-Bizon squadmates are in major danger. But I doubt that the main characters will get wiped out.
Definitely not. He's definitely going to die happily of old age.
Which girl is waifu material?
>Watch Love Live nest season.
but her as a pilot is more awesome than watching bunch of boring guys
As long as it makes you happy, I don't mind.
>>Why do I get the feeling the anime is just to introduce the mobage which will then become the TRUE anime?
>it'll be a horrible, HORRIBLE troll if they introduce the mobage girl characters at the end of the episode that ends the series entirely
would Sunrise be that cruel?
this series doesn't seem to be picking up well with anime fans in Japan
I doubt this show will actually have a large death count, so I'd count on the survival of most of them. The most likely to die seem like Lee, Jarl, and the Captain. Most of the Zogilians seem expendable, so it's open season on anyone who isn't Hina, Bizon, or Alfried.
>Second most discussed anime on 2chan
>Isn't picking up well
>>Second most discussed anime on 2chan
I was under the impression that it was doing about the same as it was here.
How's about Love Live girls driving giant robot to dance in an episode of idol promo? It's not like it hasn't been done before.
Get lost, waifufag.
Girls are not coupling partners.
>Being destined to lose is suffering ;_;
She not even interested
That's just her nerdy's cover for her true feeling. Mayuka is too pure.
Hina needs to survive and Bizon too so they can marry and have an happily ever after.
Dio and Aoba should die together like the glorious homo OTP it should be.
Mor commander should out live them all.
Nigga she all over that Aoba.
She all over that everyone.
She's a slut mate, you should get out while you still can.
You seem to be mistaking Mayuka for Twin-tail slut.
Oh, they're both sluts.
Fanatics are the only pure girls.
>we decided to watch this other thing by the same sunrise studio
And I stopped reading. Got me going for a moment.
>Get lost, waifufag.
>Girls are not coupling partners.
now who's the generic boring gay one
>>Second most discussed anime on 2chan
>>Isn't picking up well
preorders are bad
this thing is such a throwaway project until Sunrise's far superior franchise Love Live comes along
Watch episode again, she's even denser than Aoba.
Where are you getting your impressions? It's definitely not from the threads with over 700 replies in less than 1 hour in 2chan that's for sure.
You're the only one complaining in every single thread. If you don't like it don't watch it.
What if the game's prospect is good?
Preorders are doing bad for everything that's not from a known franchise or very popular and stable author or studio so it's not a good popularity indicator. The discs are too expensive to preorder without watching it first.
Aye, pretty much every show I've seen this season has been complaining about lack of preorders. Even the really popular ones, like sakura trick.
>fitting a "beach episode" in the middle of a war
>adolescent male friendship jealousy
This is not what I picked this up for.
I only wanted an innocent shounen.
7000Yen is more or less a standard price.
>>adolescent male friendship jealousy
I take that back, I wrote it after watching the prologue only.
Edgelord Dio doesn't like douchebag, that's an improvement.
When do Aoba and Dio fuck already?
Super late but:
Maybe soon, Dio is slowly showing his soft side to Aoba.
That doesn't mean they can afford preordering discs for all series they're watching at the same time.
You don't like fun, do you?
So Aoba is the perfect coupling partner or what was this episode trying to tell us?
Yes he's a slut.
>fitting a "beach episode" in the middle of a war
And? That's not even unrealistic.
Even I would coupling with Aoba, I love his charisma and personality, I loved how he was friendly teasing Dio during the episode.
Thinking discussion on 2chan generates sales.
As expected of a newfag.
Fuck off fujoshit. Why don't you fuck off back to your homoshit general?
Dude, this is the homoshit general
You're the cancer that is starting to infect these threads, actually.
You can always tell when women start infecting your threads through their shitty abusive way of spoiler texting everything they post which is a habit they picked up from their cancer hangouts.
Hey buddy this isn't the KLK thread.
Yeah, keep on believing that.
Shouldn't you be watching Nobu, instead, which is intended to pander to your fucks?
Fromm is going to die right? Dio just raised his death flag for him.
The zogilia team was so cute this episode. I wish we could see more of them being chummy.
I'm pretty sure the cancer that just started to infect this thread with nothing but shitposting is you.
Thread is kill.
Oh well, it's almost dead anyway. See you next week guys.
>Fuck off fujoshit. Why don't you fuck off back to your homoshit general?
Pretty much, shitposter-kun woke up to shit the thread. It was fun, buddies.
Yup, on autosage now. At least he got to the party late.
Till next time guys.
We're exactly at 500 posts (501 now), I guess we can be happy.
As expected of a SNK tumblr hambeast
Fromm choosing to stick around after he served his one-episode purpose is lethal.
>still stuck in SNK
>using tumblr as an insult
As expected of a winter newfag.
Stop trying so hard, anon. You're embarrassing yourself.
Man, Buddy Complex threads have been consistently great so far. What the fuck happened here
Awww, the landwhale got caught red-handed.
It was explained during the episode why they were filming, put more attention it wasn't a big deal, also you have no idea the kind of things some mecha series pulled to show some bikini fanservice in the past.
Only the last 50 posts man, only the last 50.
One guy shitreplying to old posts that's what happened.
Some retards that doesn't even watch the show shitposting.
Don't need to try when you have landwhales in these threads posting made up rumors from their landwhale general and treating them as fact:
"Guy's the director intended this anime to be fujoshit, just trust me, because my fellow landwhales said so."
He'll die even before Sugita. So basically Dio hates jocks and the popular kids?
>What the fuck happened here
People started watching the anime.
The gundam slapping that bitch always make me lose it.
Dio seems to hate everyone except his sister who tries to be friendly with him.
>So basically Dio hates jocks and the popular kids?
Man, Dio really needs to get coupled with.
>Aoba and the new guy have a better NICE COUPLING, FIRST PROPOSAL than him
Remember buddies, it's in your hands to stop yourself from replying to bait and not feeding the trolls. Replying to bait is shitposting. Report and ignore unwanted replies.
Aoba a cute.
Die and Aoba will die together in their last coupling, they will become 1 with the stars.
Well, it's only natural since Aoba was a lot more experienced at coupling after his times with Dio. He was much more comfortable with Fromm than the first time with Dio where Dio had to pressure him into it.
Man I hate the new pilot, Fromm or w/e, hopefully he gets killed off right quick
Dio please, leave the thread.
I was primed to hate him but he seems to be a nice guy, though he's a bit on the smarmy side.
You mean Aoba, Hina and Bizon? Pretty sure Dio will live, bitter people tend to survive.
He likes older women. He made a comment about Lene but didn't seem as enthusiastic about Anessa.
U just jelly coz he got all the gurls.
He reminds me of Sleggar Law. He exists only to die. I just hope he dies in a cool way
I hope they get Aoba and Hina together sometime soon. They're totally blue balling in giving that plotline progress. Besides the action scenes, their interactions together are my favorite part of the show. I'm really interested to see how/why she ends up falling for him.
I also hope Aoba dies, thus crushing everybody (but mostly Hina) emotionally. That would be delightful
How can you hate him?
I don't think anyone hates him. It's just, like Dio, we all have a hatred for those better than us.
She clearly says "Slava Zogillia"
Bad move Anime-Koi
Sklava is Greek for slave, so she says Slave of/to Zogillia. I think it's meant to imply something along the lines of "My life for Zogillia."
Maybe they think slava means slave.
It should be something along the lines of "Glory to Zogilia" if it's the slavic meaning of the word. Zogilia originated from China/East Russia so that doesn't make any sense.
They're not Greek, they're Russian. Slava Zogilia means all hail Zogilia or glory to Zogilia.
This. It's weird they translated it like that this episode because wasn't it just Slava Zogilia in the past? It's like translating Blitzendegen, not the same if translated.
>so that doesn't make any sense
>Slava (literally translated as glorification)
Why the fuck didn't you guys make a new thread when the episode came out. It was already at like 350 posts.
What for? It's fine like this.
>Enemies are all super competent and every mook death is a big deal
>New hotshot pilot wan't an arrogant douche or a pussy when it comes to fighting
Time travel aside I love how all these characters are so reasonable.
It's like 10 minute from dying.
So we'll make a new one then.
He is going to die though. Dio helped the enemy to mark his Beryl as an ace pilot. They're going to be targeting him and blowing him up with his mediocre skills.
Good call, it makes sense.
Oh didn't think of that yeah I can totally see that happening, I'm not sure about him dying though.
To me he's going to be Aoba's replacement in history, everything he accomplishes will be attributed to Fromm so Aoba can go back without inconsistencies.
I thought it was pretty much confirmed Aoba dies, and even if he doesn't what makes you think he is necessarily going back?
Just a guess, it's certainly what he wants to do. They clearly figure out a way to do it if Hina goes back.
Aoba dying makes a lot of sense, would also explain Hina's reactions in the first episode.
Either that, or his technobabble waves will work with Dio now, and Aoba will be taken off Luxon duty. But then Aoba will launch in it and get captured, and the enemy commander will think Aoba is some super badass while he stands around like an idiot repeating Hina's name.
