Annotated Anime: Gundam Build Fighters Try episode 10

Survival guides teach us that a good way to deal with a bear is to make ourselves look larger, make a bunch of noise, and generally give the impression that you're no easy prey.  But what about Beargguys? More importantly, what about Mama Beargguys?!

Y'know, I like Build Fighters Try and all, but in retrospect, it's kind of nuts that it took this long for someone to put the "Burning" in "Build Burning Gundam". 

But hey, it finally did happen, and it was awesome.

When last we checked in with Gundam Build Fighters Try, "teamwork" was the name of the game, as Fumina debuted her support-specialized Winning Gundam, acting as a true leader should, to bridge the gaps between her two superstars, Yuuma and Sekai to form the trio into a more cohesive unit.

Episodes 7 and 8, on the other hand, are about setting up the pairings and rivalries that form the bedrock of Gundam character dynamics. This happens both on the individual level and team level, though in the latter case, it takes sacrifice to establish that bond.

This ad for a Unicorn Gundam model goes full Psycho (Frame)

I've never been that much into model-making, Gundam or otherwise, so I've never had much of a reason to pay attention to commercials for the things. Then again, if they're all as cool as Bandai's new ad for an upcoming ...

Though we took quite a break between installments of our coverage of Gundam Build Fighters Try last time, I'm not about to let a good battle pass by, especially not as things are beginning to heat up for Team Try Fighters.

Plus, this week's engagement, though short, is a lovely treat for anyone who loved the Universal Century's more realistic spinoffs.

It's been a while last we checked in with Build Fighters Try, but for a fan of the first season, things have been going about as well as can be expected. Sunrise has once again managed to deliver an easily digested, intricately produced action show that also manages to mine the nostalgia of Gundam fans old and young.

So far, so good.
