Average ending to a mostly mediocre show. I'm glad they took half the episode to do IRL though before switching back at the end. I hate it when a show goes all the way to the end and gives a "rushed" ending with/alongside the credits. Glad they avoided that pitfall at least

Magee: Fabulous
Tiger: Not quite what I expected but, somehow fits
Kyoya: Handsome asf. Definitely have no problems with the ladies
Shahyr: Loaded rich asf
Too bad we don't get to see the others, owell


Hi Patrick/Enact cameo, Hi Poly-Pod Ball and Storm Bringer, hi millions of cameos I cant count



Real Question: Are we getting the Sarah Figure gunpla? Or the actual Sarah gunpla? or Both? (Bandai confirmed one already)



Now on to waiting for UC:NT

When it comes to AU, I think this is the first time side-story characters/mechas made cameos in the core AU-series complete with their voices. Not even Astray characters have that privilege in SEED/Destiny (eg: Shiho Hahnenfuss appeared in Destiny but never voiced). Instead, Sunrise made two short anime for Astray.

That was pretty much the ending we expected. It was fun to see what the other characters look like in real life. Really disappointed we didn't see Rommel!

It's an okay ending to an overall mediocre series. At least we got to see most of the character in really life. Leaving out Rommel is a crime though.

With any luck, this'll be the end of the build franchise.

Aint gonna happen, the series is too easy to milk for an easy buck. Though I do prefer if they step back a bit, assess what they did wrong, and improve.



Not to mention I need more gunpla to fuel my addictive hobby.... (my wallet probably agrees with you though)

First off I would like to say that almost nothing about the game side of things made any sense. With that out of the way that was about as good an ending as they could have made with what they had to work with. I did find all the apologizing about stopping a murder attempt rather hard to take.

I think the overriding problem with the show was that they wanted to make an inherently consequence-less situation (an online MMO) have real world consequences and went about doing it in the most wrongheaded way possible.

While I thought that it was an ok series, I much prefer the first two due to the fact that the models would get damaged and force the pilot to upgrade the gunpla....instead of it just being fine irl and maybe upgrading it when you feel like it...either way it was ok but I'm looking forward to new 00 and IBO stuff

Ya, I really wanted to see what he looked like and also why that one subordinate of his said this was all he had.

You know that's exactly what happened here with the 00 Diver Ace, though, right?

Murder is bit strong word and honestly risking all game data for what basicaly amount to glitch is certainly rather reckless and if GBD support microtransaction, it could get really nasty. So I think apology wasn't completely unwarranted.

We can argue whether Sara is really alive, but I don't think there is point to it as there is no way prove either.

How would I have written GBD? Well for starters, I'd have Riku and friends go through a lot of agonizing defeats and slowly/gradually climb up the ranks as his team improves and grows in skill, maturity etc.

The Sarah story really didn't make sense and everything leading up to the final battle to save her was a complete waste of writing. I would have just kept her as an in game creation that wasn't harmful at all, but since they insisted that she caused the break decals, then why the f*** are we seeing the problem being dealt with from an online perspective and not from an offline perspective? There should be an entire IT team dedicated to these issues in the real world, not within an imaginary world. Maybe if they wrote it like Yugioh VRAINS where your virtual actions actually have real world consequences, I might have given them a pass on that.

I think it would have been a far more interesting avenue to strike a better balance between real world and virtual world personalities. Maybe meeting some of these ppl in real life at the end of the series is a set up for a season 2, but in reality, this virtual game could have been played globally. Does everyone else live in Japan? Because it seemed only the insanely rich guy flew all the way to meet the kids.

What I liked about the first GBF was besides the fantasy aspect of the 2nd main character coming from another world (they could have explored that further), everything else was based on the real world. We had proper bars and levels set on the different nationalities and players participating in the tournament. It was more or less consistent to what they said initially from beginning to end, and the growth of the protagonist was believable.

Alas, this GBD series has come to an end. Time to move on.

You know considering how bad this was its probably good it wasn't really connected to GBF might limit brand damage.

You know GBD is bad when the plot in Yu-Gi-Oh! Vrains makes more sense.
