Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - Character Discussion

The purpose of this thread is to provide a place to discuss all things character related.
To keep the discussion enjoyable for all Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans fans, please follow the guidelines below and stay on-topic!
Note: Please don't use this for the specifics (i.e. episode, chapter, game, etc. discussion) there are other threads for that stuff.
Thread Guidelines
  • No campaigning!
    No "hate" or "xyz must die" posts. Discuss why you do or don't like characters without whinging and whining or blatantly campaigning for your favourite.

  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
    Do not insult or harass other members for their likes and dislikes. Do not take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a character you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter are always welcome, but harassing people will not be tolerated.

  • Discuss, don't chat.
    Please remember that AnimeSuki is a discussion forum, not a chat room, there is a difference. If you wish to chat, then please make use of our IRC channel.

  • Have fun, but post intelligently.
    It's great to have fun, but please try your best to add substance to what you post and make your thoughts interesting for the generation of fans that will follow after you’re long gone and on to watching some other series.

  • Use Spoiler tags!
    Spoilers are allowed, but they must be enclosed in spoiler tags clearly marked with a proper title. Failure to do this can result in a BAN.

    • Adding a Spoiler tag:
      Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms. Make sure that you include a title for the spoiler!

    • Please use the Report button if you see any spoilers:
      Click the button found to the left of the post, just under the poster's avatar. Using the Report button is anonymous and helps the Moderators to locate and deal with problems quickly.

    • Posting prohibited spoilers may result in a ban.
      Note: Reporting a post does not mean the poster will be banned instantly. The Moderators will use bans if warnings are repeatedly ignored.

Um could this just be a general character discussion thread? I dont think there's a need for multiple discussion threads for each character (even though there's only this one atm)

And judging from the first episode, most of these characters are going to be very closely intertwined, such as Mika and Orga

I second wanting a general character discusion thread. It hard to talk about any one character without bringing up their interactions with other characters.

Mika x Orga and Mika x Kurdelia case in point.

I also agree with a general character thread.

Also, I hope they don't do Mika x Kurdelia. He's like eleven or something and that sort of thing seems to be against her whole argument.

It's still much better than Setsuna x Marina. They had like few interaction and suddenly they're married at the end. Even at 2 episodes only, it feels like Mika and Kudelia has more interaction than Setsuna and Marina for the entire 00 series already.

I didn't mean rommance wise. I meant a discussion based on Mika and Kurdelia's interactions. Which seems to be the most talked about topic.

It just occurred to me while posting in the other thread... but aren't Orga and Mika a lot like Sora and Shiru (No Game No Life)?

I mean, NGNL was really over the top, so Sora was fittingly a freaking genius himself... but his premise was being a "normal" human who really understood other people and knew how to twist any situation to a favourable outcome.

At the same time, Shirou was the unbeatable genius... as long as it came to the "battlefield". Outside that, she was absolutely lost.

This seems a lot like Orga and Mika. Orga knows how to get around in society, and Mika is the savant providing the raw "power" for those plans to work. They also seem to display the same level of absolute, unflinching trust.

I've seen people state Kurdelia is Jewish, is there any truth to that or is /m/ making things up again?

Personal theory is that it references the 8th alternate universe:

FC was 1, AC was 2, AW was 3, CE was 4, AD was 5, AG was 6, and Build Fighters was 7. CE and GC are technically part of the UC.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernstein

Quote:
Bernstein is a German and Yiddish surname meaning "amber".
So it's a somewhat Jewish surname but that doesn't mean the family is Jewish. Not seen any talk within the series about nationalities and the like.

I wasn't able to find something similar for "Kudelia" but apparently it most common in the Ukraine.

In the anime on Gjallarhorn's document on her it's romanised as "Kuderia" but I didn't find any useful info on that spelling. (Kudelia is the romanisation on the official website)

Anyone got anything more?

I'm sure I could write lots of character analysis but here's two short ideas.

Mika = soldier. Orga = captain. Kudelia = commander-in-chief or queen? The first two seem pretty solid (though could argue about exact rank, main thing I want to get at here is the general concept) but kinda vague how Kudelia is going to develop currently. Orga works well as an "executive" (as in executive branch of executive officer) and Mika is a worker. Kudelia doesn't appear to really be a "politician" currently, more of a campaigner. Will she tilt more towards being a legislator / negotiator or more towards overall leader and revolutionary?

Second idea is a bit simpler...

Mika = in the here and now. Orga = short/medium term and local scale. Kudelia = medium/long term and global scale.

I'm glad we finally got to see Orga and Kudelia interact properly in episode 3. They actually have more in common with each other than Mika. I wonder if she will introduce Orga to her contacts and directly involve him with the independence movement or will they stay more as "client" and "hired muscle"? If Orga becomes directly involved then that could drive a wedge between him and the rest of the boys.

I don't think an analogy with a government-like organization actually works.

Orga and Kudelia are partners (escort-client).
Orga and Mikazuki are leader-follower.
Mikazuki and Kudelia don't really have an established relationship yet except through the partnership via Tekkadan and Orga.

Uh. Mikazuki is just one of Kudelia's current escorts. She contracted him. Like everyone else.

Mika is underling, he work for Orga and Orga provide service to Kudelia. She has no obligation to fodder like him beside personal interaction.

It's indirect relationship.

am i the only one here thinks that there are three potential candidates Char type characters?
being McGillis a.k.a. 'Chocolate man' because he is blonde (not sure that's racist ), Gaelio due to having a little sister which common in Char types, & lastly Ein due to his revenge mode, i think a dark haired masked pilot would look cool & made the fangirls squeal too
