Lafter, why are you so hot? *_*

The shots on Fumitan this episode, she's suspicious.

Nice episode, it was pretty obvious since the beginning that Fumita is a traitor, there were a lot of hints and the way she acted was also suspicious. I hope we can see more character development on Kudelia and Atra, also hope to see more about the villlains.

Agree with the post above. IBO is doing a great job of fleshing out its characters by showing, not saying. When the inevitable carnage starts, these will be characters you care about.

The score is still criminally low. When I see the score some other series this season have I cannot help but facepalm
Its probably because the pacing is too slow, this is like nagi no asukara where nothing interesting happens until episode 12. The main conflict also is barely explored at all and characters don't seem to act their role properly. Kudelia is supposed to be a high ranking politician figurehead and she is a mopey, exposition device that doesn't do shit.

Having watched SEED a couple of months ago, I am so glad that this show just takes a lot of time to develop and flesh out the characters instead of an obligatory fight scene every episode.

Can't wait to see the "new" barbatos

I can't wait to see how good Barbados looks and runs from that old coot upgrading it. Also Kudelia's decision was too predictable, she didn't need to think that through at all.

Lafter is sooo cute this episode.

Awww I love how everyone, especially the little kids from Tekkadan look up to Orga as a older Brother, or for the older kids, as a "Boss".

That ginger who stashed away those sweets to give the little kids later was so cute. And Orga passes out in front of him.

Dude BARABATOS looks so freaking cool even with just the frame.

I am absolutely in love with the Dual-MC IBO is going with.

Am I the only one who felt suspicious of the head of Teiwaz? He seemed a little too eager to take Aina's contract from Tekkadan. I got some bad vibes from him. Maybe he's going to sell her to the 4 Earth Blocs.

Fumitan is her usual suspicious self, no surprise there. She's def working for Gjallarhorn. F***ing spy. She didn't even wear the necklace Aina gave her.

The ep went by so fast. I really thought I was only 10 minutes in when the ed started.

11/10 just cause we got to see Orga drunk and Eugene and Norba get laid, lol.

I like how the Tekkadan members all look up to Orga as their leader.

Fumitan was acting suspicious, yet again. She just has to be a spy.

Great episode despite being a chill/breather episode once again. The writing is really great so far. Looks like those people who complaint about Okada Mari being the writer before need to eat their own words.


Well this is experience, some people forgot that she still working for years with great names of japanese animation and she will not be the same writer for some years ago...

Little Atra in the preview was so cute. Mika, too. I'm glad we'll get their (and probably Orga's) backstory at last.

Yamagi's acting like he's got a crush on Shino of all people... Weird.

"Turbines and Tekkadan will be brothers", well great the brotherhood just got bigger (with a harem on the side huehue) and Barbatos final version has appeared in the opening at last http://i.imgur.com/vxTlOVR.jpg?1 and Kudelia looked stunning as heck in that dress

From what I have seen so far

She seemed suspicious, especially with what she was typing when noone else was on the bridge. But it might just be her writing random shit.


I agree, Fumitan has been acting shady since a few episodes back and is likely Fareed AKA the chocolate man's spy

Sergei Smirnov became the leader of Teiwaz. >.<

Gosh the foreshadowing on Fumitan as a spy is too strong. I wonder if the girl who gave a handkerchief to Orga is the sister of the Chocolate Man?

Mikazuki liking the Japanese characters better than the alphabet. And also Kudelia bearing the weight of everybody, wherever she may go, there will be bloodshed.

Can't wait for the next Barbatos upgrade. It should be cool.

Unfortunately most Gundam isn't like IBO (in terms of writing/pacing), but if any is likely to be up your alley, I'd bet on it being Gundam 00.

So I'd recommend checking that out first. 00's almost universally considered the easiest Gundam for newcomers to get into, and its production values still blow away most anime released today.

Nope they aren't, some of them are trash and should be avoided if you don't like too many mecha battles and some are nice and worthy to be watched, try watching Gundam 00 and 08th MS Team.

Man that scene with Fumitan and the other blonde woman rings a bell about who is the spy.

The scene with Olga drunk was funny and sad at the same time, this scene sounded more like a death flag than anything else.

Also dat music at the ending.

Gundam 00 really doesn't share anything with this though, except for it being a standalone AU.

In terms of atmosphere, character focus, and just overall feeling, I'd say Turn-A would be the closest thing.

I dont think turn-A is anything like this outside of having alot of SOL, i dont think any other gundam is like turn-A

Hell IBO is a petty (welcome) departure from most of the other entires especially since its not focused on war (which only X really did which that one isnt even like this).

Really liked how we got to see Orga's "younger" side in these last few episodes, apart from the fact that people often refer to him as a 'kid' it can be easy to forget that he is still pretty young for a leader as he is so composed and forthright, we are never told his or anyone's age but I am guessing that he is somewhere between 19 and 22 years old.

I concur. Still a long ways to go but I almost hope this story is 50 episodes in length green lighting a part two. Regardless I'm just glad to be enjoying a Gundam series again after what feels like forever after the last few installments.

Solid episode I still can't believe the way the characters are actually being fleshed out and if this Gundam is following the new formula I think it is. It's going to be great. So Barbatos is one of the 72 Gundams that ended the Calamity War? How much more bad ass can it get, I mean it already looks bad ass even when it's down to the frame. I can't wait to see it in action since it's being upgraded with an unlimited budget. Kudelia's Secretary acting shady as fuck since earlier episodes, when the Gjallahorn guy(I swear he should be that one masked character)said he had someone that dealt with underground dealings I hope it wasn't her he was talking about. Good to see tekkadan having some ground to stand on, and did those 2 guys get laid lol?

Loved the episode. Kudelia still gets on my nerves, though. She is not some weak or whiny heroine by any means but her character just doesn't interest me. I really hope she won't be Mika's love interest. I'm starting to warm up a little to Atra but I wonder if she will survive till the end.

Loved Amida's interaction with Atra. Interesting to see that Amida is fine with sharing her man with other women. I like her character as it's something new and refreshing. I like her best out of Naze's women. When Amida said "As long as you choose the right man," does this mean that Mika might not be the one for Atra? I really hope it doesn't mean that Atra will be deeply hurt by Mika. I don't ship it by any means but I don't want Mika to do something bad or hurtful to her. Well, maybe he will hurt her by falling in love with another girl but who knows.
I don't see Mika falling for Lafter even if I want it to happen but something might happen between them. Maybe Lafter will be Mika's first woman?

I started to suspect Fumitan two episodes ago or so but I never suspected her to be Fareed's spy. Maybe she's the one he was referring to. I think that even if she is the spy, I doubt she will do anything to harm Kudelia. I can see her dying, though.

So Eugene and Norba are no longer cherry boys, huh? BTW, is it just me or was Yamagi not happy when Norba made it obvious that he had sex? Could it be that Yanmagi has a thing for Norba? Since it is a non-BL series, I don't expect any hints of same-sex romance but I am sure it happens. Well, I don't think Yamagi is a girl, right?

I'm looking forward to see Fareed's fiancee. While it's a bit disturbing, I'd like to see what kind of character Armelia is. Hope she is not an annoying brat.

Ah, seeing Barbatos's bare frame was a bit too much for me.

The ceremony was lovely and all, Kudelia also chose to move ahead, fortunately. Now then, time to spill some blood for he Tekkadan crew?

Guys is it just me or did really nobody notice that Yamagi has obviously a thing for Norba?
Example: https://49.media.tumblr.com/cb6261d5afd1d4ee2e71781680e8935b/tumblr_nxv4craFnk1qkpt3so1_500.gif

These episodes feel shorter than they are. Enjoying the character interactions. We got to see McGillis and his friend or should I say brother-in-law Gaelio. So we know we can expect some action next episode. Ein is still angry over Cranks death and he wants vengeance. Hopefully no innocents die over it and they come to a peaceful settlement.

Orga had a lot to drink. Mika looking after him. Got his back :)

People are saying that Fumitan may be the spy that McGillis hinted. Although he mentioned it was a man?

Akihiro talking in the preview while training at the same time hahaha. We also get to see even smaller Atra and Mika! Can't wait.

It's too bad that Fumitan seems to be the obvious choice to be the spy. She was pretty useful to Tekkadan and was becoming more likeable.

Even though this was technically the 2nd "slow" episode in a row, I loved it. Really engaging stuff throughout I thought. As a Gundam series, this show is really unique.

Whereas I think most Gundam shows recently have had tons of Gundams, Barbatos is very unique in this. It'll be epic when the next Gundam shows up.

From a sneak peek of the next episode it looks like Barbatos will finally be getting his sword! Can't wait!

Her death flag was set the moment Fumitan was given the burden of Kudelia's trust in a form of a necklace. IF by chance she's the spy she'll be either 1) redeem herself later by the inevitable betrayal, or 2) die horribly whether by her heroic sacrifice or generic villain death.
Of course if the spy itself is not that blonde who gave Orga a handkerchief.

Spotted, this is really no good.

This could go so many ways... Not familiar with Gundam, I really hope they won't mess up, getting us in useless war between machines with no plot developpement.
So far so good, ganbare!

Fumitan is definitely a spy, but she's getting attached. She'll still most likely do something to put everyone in danger, but will regret it. Looking forward to the reveal.

I don't think I would usually enjoy slow political episodes like this, but Gundam pulls it off so well. I really enjoyed this episode and am really enjoying this show so far.

Looks like we'll be having a look into Atra and Mikazuki's past a bit in the next episode. This will be interesting.

Also, I'm all for the twin tails and Akihiro ship, but I'm afraid of the death of twin tails (╥﹏╥)

All these Gundam fans talking about the likelihood of death for all these characters scares me 😰

Episode where not known anything negative, finally the graphic opening we see the Gundam with the new livery, so if we want to say, then joined the cast of a new character, what we want from life? A good fight? It seems he's going to get even that, for now you should just wait; even if the thing that intrigues me the most right now, you know who is the spy in the brigade, at least that's what I realized during the narration, perhaps Fumitan? But it is still early to tell.
