    Re: Gundam Build Divers

    Welp, here's where most of the budget seems to have gone, lol.

    For the most part this battle was great. Kyoya and Rommel in particular were amazing. I was even okay with Riku mastering Trans-Am, but the whole "Wings of Light" randomly being able to remove the Break Decals for no explainable reason was too much of a stretch. Also, Tsukasa was kinda lame in this episode - the second things don't start going his way he devolves into a temper tantrum of a five year old.

    I am interested in the next episode though. Looks like Tsukasa schools Riku in old school Gunpla Battle and I'm super curious as to where they'd go from that since the Break Decal arc seems to be over.

    I have been pondering the "wings of light" thing, I think it may have to do with Sarah. Lots of people have been speculating she is a program or something, perhaps she gave Riku/his gunpla the power. This is pure speculation but it would not surprise me.

    Yeah we get to see the old version of Gunpla battle which will be interesting in how that differs. Although by the end of the episode maybe Riku will show Tsukasa the power of friendship, and revive his love of Gundam or some similar typical trope.

    That's what I've been thinking as well. I believe in an earlier episode, she was seen napping. When does anyone ever take a nap in the GBN? After all, you can never get tired in the GBN.

    While I have no doubt that it was due to Sarah, either directly or indirectly. The major problem I have is with how convenient it is. Feels like major Deus ex Machina and I hope this doesn't become a trend in Divers.

    The cast did wonder if her IRL self fell asleep at the controls, but yeah she pretty much does appear to be an Aura clone, for better or worse.

    Yeah but again I really feel the writing in Build Divers is sub-par to classic build fighters, BFT was emulating Shonen, and this appears to be emulating classic Saturday morning cartoon style, reminds of watching Yu-gi-oh, Digimon, and other Anime when I was younger, they are classic, simplistic (from a story telling point of view), and they only ever fool children for the most part.

    Also I thought it was pretty obvious from the very beginning she was not a "player" she has no gunpla, does not seem to even know or understand what gundam/gunpla even is, has strange super power empathic connection to digital information.
