So Sei is the "Builder" and Reiji is the "Fighter?" I see what you did there show .

I was actually expecting Ral to put up a good fight with the Gouf, but Reiji and the Build Strike took him out with barely any effort. Then again, it is a Best Mecha Collection Gouf. Don't worry Ral, you're still hilarious as always .

I'm not sure whether I should take Reiji's story seriously or not. He certainly took it seriously, but the crayon illustrations... Sei's reaction sold it though

I was expecting to see more from the Wing Fenice, but the creators are probably saving it up for its proper fight against the Build Strike.

All the references, the old Gundam fans who play with Gunpla in a bar dressed in Zeon uniforms and call Ral lieutenant, the Mobile Suit cameos, Ral being Ral... this show is so entertainingly awesome .

I like how even with Reiji's skills he still couldn't beat five opponents in a Ball. It helped show that he's not invincible and still has a long ways to go as a Fighter, and likely did a good deal to humble him as a character.

After this episode, I have to say my respect for Yuuki has really gone up, especially considering he's the only Fighter so far who doesn't damage the Gunpla to win .

I thought China's first meeting with Sei, and her ensuing interest in both him and Gunpla, was cute and I'm interested to see where that relationship goes. We already know she's getting the Beargguy, and while I agree with Mephis that it's doubtful Sei would show her every high-grade Mobile Suit that's ever been piloted by a female, I'd be disappointed if he didn't at least show her Nobel Gundam.

So the tournament is finally underway and the Build Strike Full Package has made an impressive debut. I wonder how many episodes it'll be before we get into the other Fighters in the opening? I somehow get the feeling Sazaki's going to lose off-screen rather than fight the Build Strike again . Next up is our first real female Fighter in Kirara the idol, and hopefully we're in for another great fight!
Looking at Graham Aker, Ricardo, I am going to guess he won't really fight till the world tournament since Sei and Reiji are in a Regional tournament.

Really, Ral just looked as if he lost while just standing there doing nothing =___+;; He should just use a Gouf Ignited or really customize his Gouf to a more advanced one since that Gouf is really weak even if the pilot is strong...

Sazaki is definitely going to lose off screen for sure knowing him =w=

I wonder if Kirara is fighting in the Regional tournament too. If she is against Reiji and Sei then I wonder if that means she is going to get eliminated fast then become a total side character without much plot after =w=;;

Speaking of Ricardo, with Yuuichi Nakamura in this series, how long until Hiroshi Kamiya worms his way into another Gundam show ?

I suggest you take back how the next weakest kits are Zaku's and GM's lol

Well... I am just going by their original spec... @w@;; (Although in this anime they can own a way more powerful mobile suit as long as the pilot is skilled)

I think the unit does have a Gundam head except it's covered.

The Gouf isn't weak. It's the one he's using that's weak. That's the Best Mecha Collection Gouf after all, as you can see in its movement, it has no joint as the current kit. They are just mocking that line of model kit. You can say those are one of the lowest grade available.

And GM isn't the next weakest suit. There is a reason they are winning the war with the GMs, since it's technically a Mass Produced Gundam. If you want the weak MS, try Guntank.

Didn't know what a Best Mecha Collection kit was =w=; I thought he was using the common HG 1/144 Gouf

I don't mean generally though. In that display case in Episode 3, I don't think I saw any Guntanks. But I did see a GM and a Zaku. I meant the Mobile suits in that display case at the bar

The way Reiji tells it (sometimes I'd wonder if he's really that na´ve at times. But I think that's one of his charms: still a wonderful character so far, in my opinion, after only 3 episodes), Sei's reaction to that story... it all sums in one word: priceless

I KNEW it was a Quebeley! (Duo I owe you a dollar) I wonder if lance bits are meant to act like the fangs from 00.

What about Koyasu? He's almost everywhere in the Gundam franchise.

Still, I wonder if Reiji's backstory is true. I mean, he might be a guy from another dimension.

I think Koyasu is ideal to voice one of those adult guys at the ED

It looks like a normal Quebeley head, but customized to look more like a Gundam. It's face reminds me of the Legilis actually... which is likely the most influence Age will ever have on this show

On the topic of more Gundam veterans coming back, I'd be severely disappointed if Tohru Furuya and Shuichi Ikeda never voice someone on this show.

There are many variants of them in OYW and some are capable of taking on Gelgoog or Gundam like GM command and Sniper II.And Mass produced versions of GM are better than the ones of Zaku II let alone Zaku

Well he does use a variant of Wing Gundam, so I would say yes.

The Wing already got promoted a lot, though. We've seen 3 versions of the Wing Gundam in 2 episodes.

Now if only there are someone using Deathscythe...
