Welcome to the Buddy Complex discussion thread.
Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.

Genre: Action, Sci-Fi
Produced by: Sunrise

Plot: On the first day back after summer break, high-school student Aoba is attacked by a giant robot that appears out of the sky. As he's pursued through the city, his classmate Hina appears in a robot of her own. She rescues him, and tells him cryptically that "Dio is waiting for you," before she disappears. This begins Aoba's new life as the pilot of the Free Treaty Alliance against the Great Zogiria Republic.

@Marshal Victory:

After Valvrave ended, I see another Sunrise mech series. It seems light hearted and probably serve as my mech series desires for winter. I'll give this a try.

Is this worth checking out for a fan of the gundam metastasis, Eva, and Code Gease? I'm not a fan of FMP style mecha

@hitsusatsu11: Not sure how serious this series will be in comaprison to those shows.Some of the mech designs to me are fugly.Some look good.1st episode is worth a look an wount make ones eyes bleed or any thing.Plus kinda hard to judge just on one episode.Sorry cant be more help than that :/

I'm actually a new mech fan, so I probably won't help you there. Valvrave was my recent mech show in a long time. I haven't seen Code Geass or Eva yet. I haven't tried this show yet either.

@hitsusatsu11: After seeing the second episode it could be.Its got the man out of time theme going.Some mechs look alot better in the second episode to.Like the ones you mentioned it has death an shows war as not happy go lucky fun time.So it has that going for it as well.

Well worth giving it 3 episode trial at least.

@Marshal Victory:

I watched the first episode. You're right the mechs are damn ugly. I thought I was watching Valvrave again because the girl supposedly dies. Let me guess, she lives in the next episode.

@takashichea: No well yes ... ok kinda... we know its a time travel show so shes alive in the futre an the past. Looks to me they are using the time paradox rules. If your not alive in the past you can go there. But say your alive in the futre you can not go to when you are alive.

The 2nd episode the mechs look alot better for the most part. Or rarther the "good guys side" mechs look better.

The 3rd just was kinda meh for me. So the next episode will determin if i keep watching or just wait an let it the series build a bit. It is not bad but not grabing me like other mech shows. Some of the mechs are ok looking an some are really not. That an some of the animtion was bit slopy . Some of the fighting felt like frames of movement was missing to try an give the illusion of speed.

This show definitely is like Valvrave with its so called coupling.

@takashichea: Not nearly as dark a story tho. It almost has a sitcom feel to it to me.

@Marshal Victory:

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. At least, I hope it doesn't have rape or brutal massacre. I got tired of fans shouting Shoko won the election but Saki won the erection crap.

@takashichea: Yeah so far I would say it will not. Tho you have some one from the future that hates her as we seen in the pilot.

An honestly I will browse other forums ( stalk rather ) just to apreciate this sites forums more. Things are much more civil here. Even the few I have big disagrements with here I have fun reading an respect their opinion. An even found my self agreeing on occasion. Some boards are long standing troll wars an others it seems like people are going out if their way to start bs an blues.

Just like Log Horizon on other boards just cant look at the forums, so trolly. I think the timeing is such the SAO fans are pushing the meme that Log Horizon is a knock off an you should look an buy SAO. Always called this acid marketing. Where you tear down a competion. Usualy this form is done on forums by low paid people with multiple acounts. It a real thing an hard to tell the difrence than them an those trolls who just feel better when they cause others to feel less.

Forth episode was ok. Man out of time episode mostly. But it was good enuff to keep me intrested for the next few I think.

Screwed up an missed the 5th epsiode so playing cach up. Noticed the helmets look alot like Robotech helmets.Good episode an the much anticipated start to the buddy part of the complex.

Hmm 6 seems well out of place in the series. It almost was the "beach episode".

7 was pretty good tho it felt like it had draged on with the whole coupling delemia. Looks like as well they are moving forward on the time paradox with Hina soon.

@Marshal Victory:

Bump for you. I finished episode 3 about a week or 2 ago. I saw what happened to Yukina. I forgot her name. She's the enemy. Guess it was her because it was a mech with a lance. Can't believe our Haruto protagonist doesn't know.
