Thunderbolt 2, Humanity, and the Consequences of War

The idea of being human has a myriad of components many would look into from a biological and philosophical sense. Some of the most commonly discussed components used as the defining factor for what makes someone “truly human” include: a sense of individuality and identity, the ability to communicate with people in a natural way, tact in regards to the dead, and the idea of dealing with trauma. The second season of Gundam Thunderbolt, and by extension, this film compilation of said season’s episodes, tackles each and every one of these facets naturally, without actively trying to dwell read more

Plain horrible except for the art, and the gundam.

Unlike the prequel which at least had an interesting plot, this feels all over the place. They didn't even complete the whole plot cycle here. It sure feels like this movie is just an intermission to whatever movie that they have next in line. Few continuation to what happened previously in December Sky.. and that's it.

Even if they replaced the entire character with a totally different one, it wont really make that much of a difference to the story so yeah, it is that bad.

The only redemption this movie have is the fairly interesting read more

Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: Bandit Flower Review

Story (7/10) Good
More Specifically (7.50/10) Good+

In comparison to the episodic format previously release just like December Sky I feel that having all 4 ONA episodes combined into one movie makes it easier and understand and consume. Unless it's either been a while and I forgot or if they actually did I noticed a few additional scenes but not too many.

Art and Animation (10/10) Masterpiece

The animation and art-style of Gundam Thunderbolt never disappoints unique, rough and classic hand-drawn full as always.

Sound (8/10) Very Good

Nothing has really changed this time around that wasn't in the read more

The original Thunderbolt had a pretty basic story about a bitter feud between two pilots, but it worked well to lend some weight to all the action. Bandit Flower doesn't have that. In fact, Bandit Flower doesn't really have a plot at all. It feels like a 90-minute compilation of all the action scenes from a 12-episode TV series (or maybe three random episodes from the middle of a series) with almost no connective tissue between them and, critically, little indication of the specific objectives for the various battles. With no context to lend it any sense of drama, it's reduced to the narrative level read more
