Just to let everyone know, Gundaminfo's YouTube channel will be offering Island Wars with English subtitles as a stream today, Aug 21, starting at 5 AM EST. I don't know how long it'll be available, but it's mentioned as being for a limited time only, so watch it ASAP if you're going to.

Well first I am not sure why Nils calls up this assortment for a test instead of I don't know the Meijins. They are still on the company payroll or any of his adult buddies. Instead of minors.

Second, raise your hand if you didn't see that reveal at the end. Coming from a mile away. Now it did suggest something about the passage of time. And it means the plot might finally being moving somewhere I want to see. But sheesh so obvious.

Fights were good.

This should have been a full movie, because it was definitely rushed. I just wish they hadn't gone that route. I didn't want the previous series' protagonists anywhere near this one in any way, shape, or form. Seriously, use GBF's OVA for that, not this one.

Also, Skaddix? There is no way in hell you watched a 36 minute video in at best 23 minutes without skipping through at least 1/3 of it.

Indeed your point is what? I basically skipped until they got the island. Unless it was exposition from the science team, Nils or the girl.

Just watched it in full. It's practically a glorified beach episode, not a movie where a super-important plot happened, but it was still so much fun nonetheless. Again, do not expect Movie or OVA visual and story quality (like 0083, 08th MS Team, or Unicorn). Island Wars is even simpler than Stargazer OVA. Treat this one like Gunpla Builders Beginning OVA (as it should be) and you won't be disappointed.

Also, the joke that got me the most is the Doraemon joke they used on the Kawaii Gunpla before pulling Mace-chan from her pocket!! That was hilarious! Those who wanted IBO cameo must content with that (for now).

There's more I want to say but it's no fun spoiling. Most people need to watch it themselves.

I agree, its good but it should have been a full movie while somehow the end feels off because of 'that' at the end. Not because I prefer Try over previous ones, but its done in 'wrong place, wrong times'.

That was funny, works as a bonus episode, though I still miss the series.

Spoiler for spoilers:


Though honestly a lot of the episode was a rehash. I would say they were using stock footage except I think most of them were using newer suits than during the regular season (aside from Fumina). Lots of posing, big blasts, etc, most of it against random mooks.

Well previous series character is the only thing that made this relevant. Otherwise as noted its a Beach Episode.

Didn't say they did false advertisement. Just saying only old series character advanced the plot

Aila looks great! Wow.

That being said, it would have been better if they make a GBF OVA if they want to tell a story about the GBF cast. It honestly felt like the whole "movie" was building up to that ending. I mean, you could have the Sei, the Meijins, and the rest of the GBF crew in there and the overall story wouldnt feel that much different.

Great fights though some felt a bit rushed (but that is a given with only 30+ mins of runtime).

Not really. It’s the new girl who drives the plot of this episode and she’s a new character . Other than that, this episode is riding on Nils’ new creation as the plot foundation which is normal given his professor/inventor role/archetype he played in GBFT. It’s still Sekai and co who solve the problem with the Plavsky anomaly as well as with the new girl's wanting Gunpla of her own. In other words, in a normal series, this episode would've been a filler (old GBF characters or not) which is good for a beach episode.

Summary of the OVA:

1. Return of Super Fumina.
2. Gunpla goes full magic.
3. Reiji and Aila's daughter.

I have to admit Aila looks very beautiful as an adult. Too bad Sei wasn't around, i wanted to see his reaction to Reiji's daughter.

Welp, I was right, a rehash of the GBF finale. It felt rushed though, would have been better as multi-episode OVA or a movie.

But still, Reiji and Alia's daughter.. trying to recreate her old man's way of making gunpla friends.

I posted in the other thread before I noticed this one, owell (since I remember the mod saying that there was no point in making a new one in the past, whatever)



That ending everyone saw coming from a mile away yet it was still so satisfying to see haha, that alone made the show for me


Fun episode

One of the funniest comments I read on the episode's comment section:

I bet the JoJo homage was intentional by the animators .

It also just occurred to me they are releasing more model kits that were not even shown in the OVA, such as the Transient Glacier, wonder what else they have up the pipe since I did not see any other kit they might be making aside from the combo machine at the end?

And the Strider for Lightning is much more impressive than I gave it credit for, though I will always stand by the fact that the color scheme matching is terribad
