There comes a time where you watch a Gundam show. It can be a good one or a bad one but at the end, you will feel satisfied watching that show because it had some good elements in it.
Gundam Wing as much I disliked the show itself it has some good things in it such as Duo, Zechs, and Treize being decent chararters as well the design of Tallgeese being great. I can say the first thing about season 1 of Gundam Seed while despite being a mediocre re-telling of First Gundam it was overall a decent Gundam show with great moments every now and read more

What's the difference between the original GBF and GBF Try? GBF (especially the ending) makes my heart cried a lot, while GBF Try (as a whole) makes me cringed a lot.

The reason why you want to watch this is most likely you want to see more of Mirai and Fumina's (or Gyanko too if you like her) tits, that's it.


I personally watched Try because i watch GBF and i watch this OVA because i watch Try, and i regret it. Try is already so wrong in the first place, and this OVA still keeps it. It's too.. shonen. Really. A lot of screaming, a lot read more

Once I finished the preview for this OVA when GundamInfo released it on Youtube, I was instantly hyped for it and after months of patiently waiting and finally clicking the video to play, my hype died becoming nothing more than a disappointment at the conclusion.

If you read the title of this OVA, “Island Wars” and thought that the cast got invited to a large free-for-all tournament being held on an archipelago, introducing new Gunpla and characters to the Gundam Build Fighter franchise, you are wrong. Instead of an OVA worth to be hyped about we get the cast who get to be testers for read more

After the winning the tournament, we return to the buildfighters to see them in their glory by continuing to explode my senses of 'What happened?'

I will give them credit for allowing us to see the characters and side characters in action to warm up within the lime light, but I believe Build Fighters Try along with this special are completely missing the point when comparing it to the first Build Fighters. There are two main problems with Build Fighters Try.

The first being the fights themselves. Don't get me wrong, we get some over the top action in Build Fighters Try and its special, but it's read more
