Honestly, it almost felt as if you were in a dream.Or maybe it's because you hadn't been getting a lot of sleep, lately. Yeah, that's probably. However, thankfully, you get the entire freaking week off before the finals, of which you spent the first few days just sleeping and fixing up your Jester. However, you promised your friends that you would actually come out for the big Gundam Festival for the weekend. (cont)
>>35368983You also had spent the couple days you were resting trying to analyze everything you could from Charlotte's fighting style. It was pretty similar to the Meijin's, honestly, in that she just went straight in to get shit done. Her battle with Fellini was particularly frantic, with the Krimson Kampfer and the Rinascita bouncing around the field in a lethal dance. At times you swore they were just teleporting from spot to spot rather than actually moving. However, the game changer came near the end, when you saw the Kampfer glow blue again, as azure flame leaked out from under its armor. It then blasted forward with a burst of speed, dodging the Rinascita's buster rifle shots. However, Fellini stayed put, intending to shred the the Kampfer apart with his head and shoulder vulcans. You see the guns blaze......and nothing happens. You blink, wondering if Charlotte had dodged them, but the Kampfer maintains its course, tackling the Rinascita, and you see the blue flames spread to the Rinascita. The Rinascita kicks free of the Kampfer's hold, but it's still on fire, to the point where the armor begins to melt. Seeing that the fight was lost, Fellini opted to yield, giving Charlotte the victory.You wondered what the hell that was. Holly was also watching, and she hypothesized it was some kind of system that generated massive amounts of heat. Those vulcan bullets that Fellini fired earlier didn't miss, but simply evaporated. It made sense, considering how the Rinascita spontaneously combusted like that, and why Charlotte was so careful to recover the Kampfer after the battle. Unfortunately, neither of you had any guesses as to the true nature of that system.Well, enough of that, you had a festival to go enjoy!"Come on Holly, let's go." You say, heading for the door."Wait! Just... one... more... upgrade!" Holly whines, still at her work bench.>All right, just call when you're done, then.>REQUEST DENIED. >Other
>>35368990>All right, just call when you're done, then.
>>35368990>>All right, just call when you're done, then.Do not waste good will but tell her to make it quick
>>35368990>as azure flame leaked out from under its armor.Bitch has a NITRO System!>REQUEST DENIED. FUN AND CAMEOS NOW!
>>35368990>>REQUEST DENIED.We can finish up we you get back
>>35368990>>REQUEST DENIED.This means she can work better in the future.
>>35368990>>REQUEST DENIED.Wow, we're starting early today
>All right, just call when you're done, then.Gotta get that Min-Max, how are we going to push her to the point that they have to give us stock models to finish the battle if we don't?
>>35368990>What's the upgrade?
>>35368990>Other"Depends. What's the upgrade?"
>>35368990"All right, just call me when you're done." You sigh. You knew that when Holly was like this, very few things could dissuade her. "It'd better be something cool!""Mhm." Holly mumbles, not turning away from her table.You exit your room to see Lucina outside waiting for you, as well as Charlotte and surprisingly enough, Laura."She wanted to tag along." Charlotte explained. "Her visa lasts until the end of the tournament, so she might as well stick around to enjoy the sights!""You make it sound like it was my idea." Laura grumbled."I don't see any problem with her accompanying us." Lucina shrugs and turns to you. "Do you?">She can tag along with us.>I'm not so sure about that...>Excellent, one more for the harem! *evil cackle*>Other
>>35369283>>She can tag along with us.

>>35369283>She can tag along with us.
>>35369283>Excellent, one more for the harem! *evil cackle*
>>35369283>She can tag along with us.>Other"It's only fair, Laura. I dragged Charlotte into joining this group, now it's her turn to force someone to hang out with us. And someday, you too will make someone socialize against their will."
>>35369283>She can tag along with us.Knock yourself out.
>>35369283>>Excellent, one more for the harem! *evil cackle*This won't win but I find it funny. And partially true
>>35369283>>She can tag along with us.>>35369365And oddly enough that's very true. I also imagine we dragged Lucina into the whole socializing thing too.
So any first impressions of G-Reco?
>>35369509It sucked, except for this one part.
>>35369283"Sure, she can tag along with us." You nod. "The more the merrier.""See? I told you he'd say yes!" Charlotte laughs as she slaps Laura on the back, briefly startling the German girl."Come on, let's not keep the others waiting." Lucina pushes you all along. Outside, the rest of your friends are waiting. Amy and Mac both wave excitedly while Karen and Jake both silently acknowledge your arrival. "Oooooh, made a new friend?" Amy smiles as she sees Laura accompanying you. "That's great!""Of course it's got to be another girl." Mac rolls his eyes. "Just like Jack, eh?""Ah, shut it." You laugh as you punch him lightly in the shoulder."Now now, let's settle down." Karen smiles. "It's a big festival and we have a lot to do today!">Check out the Free Battle arena.>Check out the 1:1 Gundam statues.>Check out the dealer stalls.>Try to find some familiar faces.>Other

>>35369722Did you see his upgraded one with all the arms? "There's still holes left to stick things and they must all be filled!"spindly is best though just for goofy factor.Did any other custom builds get submitted?
>not scouting for upcoming talent for our season two when we have to defend our title and deal with the pressure of being a champno doubt there will be people trying out tourny builds and people mixing or matchig like that guys Loto Juggler last thread.
>>35369608"Let's go check out the statues! I heard they got a new one this year!" You grin.Of course, what you mean is the original 1:1 Gundam statue that was normally located in Odaiba. However, they moved it the stadium here every year for the festival, which was really cool. Also, a couple years ago, they unveiled the 1:1 version of Char's original Zaku. And here, you can see the two statues, towering above the festival grounds. There is also the 3rd statue, which you recognize as the original Wing Gundam, standing proudly in a triangle formation with the other two statues."Holy shit." You breathe."It's quite the sight, isn't it?" Karen nods."Man, I was hoping it'd be a Kampfer." Charlotte pouts."I don't think War In the Pocket is THAT popular." Jake shakes his head."WELL IT SHOULD BE.""Mein gott, you are all a very noisy bunch." Laura sighs. "No discipline at all!""What did you expect?" You chuckle.>Ask Laura if she's here alone.>Ask why Laura is into Gunpla.>Talk to someone else (specify).>Other
>>35369992>Ask why Laura is into Gunpla.
>>35369992>>Ask why Laura is into Gunpla.
>>35369992>Ask why Laura is into Gunpla.I really wanted to fight her
>>35369992>Ask why Laura is into Gunpla
So planning time.Charlotte's probably got some kind of heat generator. What can we do to counter that?
>>35369992>Ask why Laura is into Gunpla.>>35369893I saw the Shiva Gouf, and I think he was the only to build anything. He did build two other robots though.Holy shit ideaWhat if there's a redux/sequel/whatever for this quest, and we use the Spindly/Shiva Gouf?IMAGINE THE GLORY OF PUNCHING THE SHIT OUT OF A GUNDAM WITH LIKE 8 ARMS
>>35370147If there is water nearby we can make it cause a stream explosion.
>>35370147its not just a heat generator, its basically super EXAM with improved funnel control.that being said its probably really prone to overheating like TRANS AM, so it may be a battle of attricion
>>35370150I imagine it's final form would be similar to Count Saazbaum's Kataphrakt from Aldnoah.Zero.
So I have concluded that Charlotte's father is in fact the Demon Lord.In addition to making too much sense in game, we have to look at Merc's pedigree.In VMQ, Charlotte's father Jager Sturmfuhrer was a noble. He was also the head of a PMC called the Demons of Randgriz.In other words, he was the Demon Lord.
>>35369992"Anyways, Laura, what got you into Gunpla, anyways?" You ask. "No offense, but you don't seem to be the type that would naturally get into the hobby.""Well, you're right about that." Laura nods and sighs, looking up to the sky. "I initially wasn't interested in Gunpla. But then on the way home from school I came across this very eccentric homeless man. Definitely a foreigner because he couldn't speak a single word of German, but we both knew English. He was a bit pushy at first, but he showed me how fun Gunpla could be.""And you enjoyed beating other people's Gunpla into the dirt, huh?""Well, of course." Laura actually gives a bit of a devious smile. "I wanted to show that nothing could withstand the might of superior German engineering!""Uh huh." You nod. "How are you taking your loss?""I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed in myself for not considering the Rentos' reputation for underhandedness." Laura harumphs. "Perhaps if I had read Rommel's book I'd have been more prepared against their underhanded tactics.""Yeah, well, they are sorta dicks about that." You nod."But anyways, since you've defeated them so handily, that makes YOU my next target!" Laura points at you. "So prepare yourself when next we meet!">Oh, I'll be ready.>You might have to fight Charlotte for that.>Other
>>35370147Assuming it's some kind of super gundam heat system thingamajig regular conventional weaponry won't work like Fellini shown.Explosives might be useful for their splash damage but she'll be pretty fast so that's iffy at best.Beam weaponry and using the environment like >>35370189 mentioned would work.Also >>35370217 makes a good point with the overheating.Chances are if she doesn't win right then and there it'd heavily damage the Kampfer and start melting the thing.
>>35370267>>Oh, I'll be ready.
>>35370267>Oh, I'll be ready...Wait, how can a gunpla be German?
>>35369722>>35369893>>35370150>>35370245Builder hereI'm really flattered you guys not only remembered it (especially it's old "spindly" form, but that at least two of you have taken such a shine to it! This is an amazingly fun hobby and I want to thank Merc and his quest once more for "forcing" my hand into it.for it's final form, I could, in theory, put 10 arms on it, then another 8 due to Battle Arms. I however do not yet have that many gunpla at my disposal.
>>35370267>Oh, I'll be ready.
>>35370267>Oh, I'll be ready
>>35370267>"I look forward to the day when we get a chance to brawl."
>>35370309>18 armssweet jesus>>35370267Homeless guy? Need more info ladyToo weird
>>35370271Don't suppose there's Gundam versions of Inferno/Napalm missiles or weapons that cause enemy MS to heat up a whole lot? If the system that Charlotte is using makes her MS overheat a lot, perhaps all it would take is a little push in the right direction for its reactor to go critical or for it to shut down.
>>35370309>18 armsHory shiet
>>35370271It's most likely the NITRO System. It doesn't cause the suit to overheat in canon, if it is though.>>"NITRO" Psycommu System >>Gundam Delta Kai is equipped with the special Newtype Injection Trace Reformed Oldtype (NITRO) Psycommu System. The system projects large amounts of data into the pilot and allows for better response time with the unit and enhanced attack capabilities. With this system, an Oldtype pilot can acquire abilities suitable enough to manipulate the Fin Funnels mounted on the Delta Kai. It causes the Delta Kai to produce blue flames during full output. Because the system has been modified and optimized to "strengthen humans", the brain of the occupant is forcibly rewritten when the system is functioning. As a result, the personality of the pilot becomes more aggressive.
>>35370399It's Iori Sei's dad
>>35370267"Oh, I'll be ready." You grin. "I'll happily take you on like all the others.""I look forward to it." Laura grins, until her eyes widen when she sees something. You turn to get a look...>roll 1d20

>>35370641I'm so excited!
>>35370641I hope that's the case
>>35370511"Get down!" Charlotte hisses as she pulls you aside and around the back of the Zaku statue. Laura gives you a brief wave as you're pulled away, correctly judging that this was a matter she preferred not to get involved in."Charlotte, what the hell is going on?" You blink."It's THEM." Charlotte hisses pointing to the crowd. She then pulls her jacket's hood over her head in an effort to keep her face hidden.At first, you think it's reporters, but then you don't recall Charlotte ever being particularly bothered by them. You then look closer, and see two individuals who seemed very much out of place. They were a blonde haired man and women, who looked to be more like politicians or businessmen than people here to enjoy the festival. You also note that looked somewhat familiar..."Don't tell me those are your parents." You blink."Of course they are! Doesn't it look like they just suck the fun out of the air like a black hole?" Charlotte whimpers. "If they find me here I am soooooooooooo dead!""I can't be that bad, can it?"Charlotte's silence is very damning.>All right, talk. What's going on here?>If you have a problem with them, you should confront them about it.>Okay, we can help you get away from them, then.>Other

>>35370807>talk, now.I know they don't like gunpla but they wouldn't dare pull you out of the tournament would they?
I'm confused what is that roll for?
>>35370924Encounter roll, basically.
>>35370807>"I can't be that bad, can it?"Getting ahead of ourselves there Jack?>>35370924Probably to see who it was.
>>35370807"All right, talk. What's gong on here?" You say, giving Charlotte a hard stare. "I get the feeling you haven't been entirely honest with us about how bad your relationship with your parents is.""All right." Charlotte sighs. "You remember how I told you how they don't like Gunpla that much, right?""Yeah." You nod."Well, they actually HATE it." Charlotte grumbles. "They never let me buy or assemble kits, even if I buy them with money I earned myself. I've only managed to get away with it for so long because they're hardly at home anyways. If they're here it means that they've finally figured out I enrolled in the tournament.""Well, what's the worst that can happen, then?" You ask."Well, they can forcibly pull me from the tournament." Charlotte sighs. "I'm already registered, so they can't revoke my position, but if they drag me back home, it'll pretty much be an automatic forfeit as a no-show. Do you know how bad that would be?"You nod. Not only would it cheat the crowd out of a hyped up battle they were expecting, it would also make Charlotte look bad."Why do they hate Gunpla so much, anyways?" You ask."Because it's just for 'losers' and 'children'." Charlotte rolls her eyes. "And the want me to become a successful businesswoman like them and take over the company, so I don't have time for childish stuff. They just don't get it. ">You should really talk to you parents about this.>Okay, we'll keep them away from you until the end of the tournament.>Maybe we should get an outside opinion on this...>Other

>>35371482>Okay, we'll keep them away from you until the end of the tournament.
>>35371482>We'll keep them away from you"When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up."Honestly, we should cover for her until the tourney ends, because it's her parents that are being childish here. And the potential confrontation with her parents about how foolish they're being is best left for after the tourney, so she can focus on fighting us.
>>35371482>Okay, we'll keep them away from you until the end of the tournament.Save the talk until after the tourney. Maybe we can rope in some of the cast into stonewalling Charlotte's parents in the meantime.Just goad them into shittalking about Gunpla, and the fans around the festival will do the rest.

>>35371482>Maybe we should get an outside opinion on this...>You should really talk to you parents about this.Mr. Ral is around and I wouldn't be surprised if a 'homeless guy' is somewhere nearby, but she really needs to be the one to confront them.
>>35371482"I think we should get an outside opinion on this..." You say."Well, who's going to help us in this situation?" Charlotte asks."Well, Mr. Ral is a fountain of wisdom." You shrug. "He might know what to do.""Would he even be here?" Charlotte asks."Charlotte, where the hell do you think we are?" You motion to the entire Gundam Festival going on around you."Oh, right." Charlotte nods sheepishly. At this point, it seems Charlotte's parents have moved on, so you link back up with the rest of your friends and explain the situation to them."Heh, don't worry, Charlotte, if they come anywhere near you, we'll be sure to stop them!" Mac grins."Knight in shining armor act aside, though, we'll watch your back." Jake nods."It's NOT an act!" Mac grumbles."We'll also help find Mr. Ral." Karen says. "Would you have any idea where he might be?">Probably observing the Free Battles.>Probably hanging around the vendor stalls.>Probably running some kind of Gunpla seminar or something.>Other

Maybe browse the stalls to catch some rare build packs or something.>>35371638Yes, surely the only way to improve the standing of the hobby in their eyes is to get the fans of said hobby to verbally and potentially physically berate them.
>>35371888>Probably running some kind of Gunpla seminar or something.Seems like something the old guard would devote their day to.
>>35371888>Probably running some kind of Gunpla seminar or something.>Other: Probably finding a MILF. A rather specific one at that.
>>35371888>Probably observing the Free Battles.Mr. Ral is the wise old sage that you must seek out for him to share his knowledge with you.
>>35371888>Probably observing the Free Battles.
>>35371888>Probably observing the Free Battles.Ral is always interested in observing the new blood.
>>35371888As a group, you all head over to the group of tents set aside exclusively for people to build their newly bought kits. One section was reserved for people newly inducted into the hobby, and you could see professional trainers stalking the aisles, looking for anybody that might need their help. In fact, you're quite surprised to see the Meijin among them. Then again, maybe you shouldn't be so surprised. He was also a guy who really loved the hobby."Is that the Meijin?" Amy blinked."Looks like it." Jake nods. "Well, helping new hobbyists is technically part of his duties." Karen notes.You also see that, sure enough, Ral was here, standing in a corner observing everything going on. None of the new hobbyists seem to realize his importance, but you have the feeling he preferred it that way. There was also a younger, middle aged man standing beside him, a big grin on his face.>Go talk to Ral.>Go talk to the Meijin.>Other
>>35372170>talk to both at once

>>35372170>Go talk to Ral.He did bring up his suspicions to us first.
>>35372170You head straight for Ral, with Charlotte following close behind. "Ah! The two finalists appear!" Ral laughs. "How have you two been doing?""Um, good." You say. "Actually, we kind of have a problem we were hoping you could help us with.""Oh?" Ral's expression darkens a bit. "What's the matter?""Um, maybe Charlotte can explain it better." You nod to her.Charlotte sighs and explains her situation to Ral, just as she did to you. You see Ral's expression darken even further."I see. The child of two poor souls who cannot recognize the value of Gunpla." Ral shakes his head. "This will be a difficult problem to solve.""Do you have any suggestions, Mr. Ral?" Charlotte asks, a bit of pleading in her voice. "I don't hate my parents but.... the way they treat my hobby just pisses me off so much!""Hm, perhaps a parent who loves Gunpla would have a better idea on what to do, isn't that right, Takeshi?" Ral nudges his companion."Huh? Ah, yes!" Ral's companion nods and shakes your hand. "My apologies for not introducing myself earlier. I'm Takeshi Iori! Pleasure to make your acquaintance!">The pleasure is all mine.>Wait... are you THAT Iori?!>Other

>>35372543I'll just leave this here: http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=list&tags=iori_rinko
>>35372543/co/ has better MILFs; but she's tip top shelf as far as anime goes.
>>35372543A mediocre pic, but the first I found.
>>35372451"The pleasure is all mine." You smile, trying to keep your cool. You recognized him as one of the earliest pro Gunpla fighters, Takeshi Iori himself, also the father of champion Sei Iori, as well. You turn to Charlotte and see the same recognition click in her eyes. However, she manages to restrain herself from getting too fangirly as well."Ral told me a lot about you two, Mr. Jack Foulke and Miss Charlotte Rafale, this year's finalists!" Takeshi grins."YOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUU!" You hear Laura bellow as she stomps forward. "I knew it was you! You look very different without the vagrant beard!""Hey, I was NOT a vagrant!" Takeshi chuckles. "I just happened to lose my wallet and my passport at the station and well, I forgot where the Japanese consulate was...""You still owe me for all those meals I bought you!" Laura harumphs."But I paid those back with free Gunpla lessons!" Takeshi laughed nervously, now visibly sweating."You never charge for you lessons!" Laura points out."Now, now." Ral laughs as he puts a reassuring hand on Laura's shoulder. "Takeshi can be rather foolish and absentminded, but he would never purposely cheat you.""Hmph. I suppose." Laura says grudgingly. "Anyways, back to the problem." Takeshi coughs. "As a parent, I can understand where yours are coming from. They're concerned that you're not taking the right path in your life. They believe it's not possible to both a successful worker and a Gunpla enthusiast at the same time.""Well, I already know that." Charlotte frowns.(cont)
>>35372816"Yes, well, to them, they'll think you're just going through a 'phase', and if they ride it out, it'll eventually pass." Takeshi then kneels down and looks Charlotte straight into the eye. "You need to demonstrate that Gunpla is not just a hobby to you, but it's part of your very SOUL. Having a hobby such as Gunpla doesn't make you any less of a person!""But how do I do that?" Charlotte bites her lip. "They've never listened to me before.""Then don't use words. Us your ACTIONS!" Takeshi bellows. "The finals are approaching, right? I can think of no greater stage to show them your spirit and determination!""Yes, the true end to conflict is to achieve understanding." Ral nods. "Perhaps all your parents need to do is see you.

>>35372830>OtherIt would be nice if that works, but we should have a backup plan just in case. Maybe we could compare it to their hobbies? Her parents do other things than just business, right? They have to acknowledge that there's a place in a person's life for play as well as work.
>>35372816>>35372830>... I got nothen' else (works for me)
>>35372830Well, getting into the upper tiers of any sport takes a whole lotta drive and will. With something like this, it also cultivates creativity, strategic and lateral thinking, and improvisational skills. Those are valuable in any field.
>>35372830"Makes sense." You sigh. "Which just means we have to keep the parents away until the finals.""No worries." Ral harumphs. "I have many acquaintances among the staff here. They'll ensure Charlotte's parents will not come near her until the finals!""Wow, thanks." You blink."No worries. This is a battle I want to see." Ral nods. "You know, while you're here, how about you have Takeshi here show you some pointers? He's a master builder, and I believe he has techniques none of you have heard of!">Sounds great.>Nah, we got other stuff to do.>OH SHIT I FORGOT ABOUT HOLLY.>Other

>>35373104>Sounds great.>OH SHIT I FORGOT ABOUT HOLLY.It's funny because I actually did.
>>35373104"OH SHIT I FORGOT ABOUT HOLLY!" You yell and bolt out of the tent. You're barely out of the tent when you feel a foot impact your shin, causing you to fall over.""AGH!" You squirm on the ground before you try to see who just attacked you. "Holly?!""THIRTY MINUTES!" Holly frowned. "That's how long you kept me waiting!"Right in all the noise and commotion of the festival, you never even noticed your phone ringing."I'm sorry, Holly." You groan."You're lucky I didn't tell Mom and Dad." Holly huffs."Then how did you get here?" You ask."I had some help." Holly waves a middle aged, pink haired women accompanying a small child a bit younger than Holly. The woman waves back and continues on her way."You'd better make this up to me!" Holly pouts.>How about a lesson from Takeshi Iori himself?>Um, ice cream?>How about we go buy some more Balls?>Other

>>35373464She, actually. Those people are cosplaying as Haman Karn and her adopted daughter/political hostage Mineva Zabi. Or maybe they actually are them, since Build Fighters is set in Gundam Valhalla.
>>35373424>How about a lesson from Takeshi Iori himself?>Um, ice cream?
>>35373522Doesn't change the fact that she looks high.
Guys... what if we give her a Ball Sundae?
>>35373594You would be, too, if on your fun field trip to another universe you found out you'd have to deal with Banagher when you grew up. Haman had to medicate her pretty strongly to get her to calm down.
>>35373424>How about we go buy some more Balls?This is Holly, remember?
>>35373522But Mineva... well, she presumably died at some point, didn't she? Probably in complete obscurity, given that Unicorn and all its characters basically had no impact on the late Universal Century.
>>35373424"How about a lesson from Takeshi Iori himself?" You ask."NO WAY." Holly blinks. "You're telling me you can get me a lesson from one of the greatest builders in the world, just like that?""Yes, Holly, yes I am." You then point to where Takeshi is already putting your friends through the paces, using basic gundam kits."EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!" She squeals before you even know it, she literally teleports across the tent to accost Takeshi, showing her some of her custom Balls."Your sister certainly is a very lively one!" Takeshi laughs as you approach."Yeah, she takes building really seriously." You nod. "And a favored type, as well." Takeshi examines one of Holly's masterpieces, the Master Ball. "I can't believe you custom cut these pieces.""Oh, well, it w-was nothing!" Holly says, blushing with the praise. "It's hard to keep the edges straight, though. I spent a lot of hours on that one Ball alone...""You know what, I think I have just the trick!" Takeshi takes Holly aside to show her some of his tricks.Lucina then approaches and tugs at your sleeve."Yeah, Lucina?" You blink. "Not into building?""Not really." Lucina smiles and shakes her head. "Maybe we can we can stop by the Free Battle Arena? That's more to my liking.">Sure thing.>We should stay here.>Other

>>35373654"Yeah, sure thing." You nod. Leaving the others in Takeshi and Ral's care, you and Lucina head out to the Free Battle Arena set up near the center of the festival. It was a simple table set up where any two fighters could meet, regardless of background or skill level.However, as you approach, you can see a familiar face at one end."You know, I guess I shouldn't be surprised to see you here, Fellini." You grin."Oh, hey there, Jack!" Fellini grins and takes a look a Lucina. "I swear, every time I see you, you're with a different girl! Trying to follow in my footsteps, huh?""Erm, no comment." You sigh. "Have you been here long?" Lucina asks, apparently ignoring the offhand comment, her eyes staring intently at Fellini's Rinascita."Five straight wins in a row!" Fellini grins."I don't know, I get the feeling your opponents aren't exactly up to your skill level." You say, eying the competition, who are mostly just kids and casual players."We've got a special event set up!" The Judge, who was wearing a very, VERY convincing Rain cosplay, stepped forward. "Anybody who can defeat Mr. Fellini here wins a prize!"She then shows you a box on a pedestal, which was apparently a special DVD collection of EVERY Gundam series EVER.Huh.>Suggest to Lucina that she face off against Fellini.>Just watch Fellini pubstomp some scrubs.>Other
>>35373946>Suggest to Lucina that she face off against Fellini.She'll have a good fight.

>>35373946>>Suggest to Lucina that she face off against Fellini.
>>35373946>Suggest to Lucina that she face off against Fellini.Give it a shot, Lucina. Felini's good enough that if you lose there's no shame, but if you win you get bragging rights. And a prize that we WILL force you to watch. We made you sit through SEED Destiny, you think we won't make you watch better entries in the franchise?
>>35373974Well, probably not Build Fighters Try, since that's the future of this world we're in, but Build Fighters original could be in there. I wouldn't be surprised if they made an anime of it in-character.
>Quick build a GM and use itor >Borrow Lucina's gunplaI want to fight Fellini

>>35374068Every series ever that has been, not that will be. Build Fighters Try doesn't exist yet in that universe. Or this one, actually. Not until tomorrow, anyway.
>>35374153>Every series ever that has been, not that will beNo, no. He explicitly emphasized EVERY series EVER. If it was just the has been, it wouldn't be EVERY series EVER.
>>35373946"You know, Lucina, you should give it a shot." You say casually. "I mean, you get to fight a pro fighter, and if you win, we can the whole DVD collection.""True...""And if we do get, we can marathon them all together." And Lucina is already off to the battle table."And it looks like we have a new challenger!" The Judge says happily. "Will she break the Italian Dandy's streak?""Heh, she looks like a tough one." Fellini grins as he leans over to you. "How good is she?""Very." You say neutrally."You know, I don't really need that prize or anything..." Fellini shrugs. >Go easy on her.>Give her everything you got.>Other
>>35374273>Give her everything you got.Don't you dare insult her by giving her an easy win, Fellini.
>>35374273>Give her everything you got.Going easy on her is an insult.

>>35374273>Give her everything you gotAnything less would just make her mad.

>>35374273>>Give her everything you got.
>>35374273>>Give her everything you got.She'd be insulted if you did any less.
Wow. So that's a pretty unified response.

Are there any tournments we can enter? like quickly put a GM together and fight?
>>35374273>Give her everything you've got. "She's a Fighter, Fellini. Don't think for even a minute that you'll get away with insulting her by letting her win."
>>35374331Our theme has always been fair play, we would be hypocrites to go back on that when it would be advantageous to us.
>>35374356Pretty sure this is the reader cameo "episode" before fridays series finally.I hope Merc comes back, but I don't think he will.
>>35374401... I have been waiting days for this, but fine.
>>35374273"She's a true Fighter like any of us, Fellini. Going easy on her is just going to be an insult." You say."Fine with me." Fellini grins. "All right, fighters, set down your Gunpla!" The Judge says.Fellini sets down his Rinascita, while Lucina brings out her Exia Cuirassier. BEGINNING PLAVSKY PARTICLE DISPERSALFIELD: PLAINSBoth the Cuirassier and Rinascita start on opposite sides of a flat field with tall grass blowing in the wind. You frown, as this sort of terrain would favor Fellini. Lucina manages to get the first move, blast forward with the Cuirassier, its GN Drive whining as it propels the Gunpla over the open ground. Fellini, meanwhile, backs off and fires off several beam rifle shots, which Lucina deftly dodges. Fellini attempts to correct his shots, but Lucina shows she's got a trick up her sleeve. Her Cuirassier's side sheaths open up, and fire their sheathed swords like projectiles. Fellini, caught by surprise, barely dodges the two launched swords, but loses his beam rifle in the process, which is sliced into three pieces.Without his primary ranged weapon, Fellini resorts to his beam saber. Lucina draws two GN Blades and the two clash. GN blade meets beam saber while Fellini uses his beam cloak to tangle up the Cuirassier's other arm, leaving both Gunpla in a dangerous stalemate.>Cheer on Lucina.>Stay quiet and see what happens.>Other

>>35374868You don't read the OP do you?
>>35374675It seems like Lucina finally makes up her mind. Her normally stoic expression is betrayed by the slightest of smirks, as you hear her quietly say two simple words."Trans am."The Cuirassier suddenly glows bright red as its GN Drive powers up. A sudden kick sends the Rinascita away, stunned, while at the same time, the Cuirassier's sword binder explodes, sending its stored swords flying out into the air. And the Cuirassier flies, so fast that multiple afterimages of it begin to appear as it flies about, snatching swords as they fall from the sky and repeatedly slashing them into the Rinascita, before delivering one final blow from above and landing on the ground in one knee, its swords falling into a perfect circle around it as the Rinascita explodes in the air."And we have a winner!" The Judge yells happily. She comes over and plops the box set DVD into Lucina's arms."Erm... can I also have that one, over there?" Lucina points to an innocuous stuffed animal of a popular mascot sitting on a nearby shelf."Sure!" The Judge nods. "On the house!"You don't remember a time where you saw Lucina smile so much."Man, that girl really is something." Fellini chuckles as he walks up to you. "Then again, she was lucky I was fighting consecutive battles. The Rinascita's parts were starting to wear out and handling was getting sluggish.""Yeah, sure, whatever helps you sleep at night." You laugh. "Jack, we won!" Lucina says happily."YOU won." You grin. "That was some awesome fighting out there. When did you unlock Trans Am?""Well, you're not the only one who who's good a building!" Lucina huffs, and then sighs a bit. "Amy and Karen helped me out with it.""Hey, no harm in letting others help." You laugh.>Stick around for a little while.>Better head back.>Other

>>35374945"We better start heading back." You say. "The others are going to start wondering where we went off to.""True." Lucina nods, still clutching her newly won loot. "You think they'll be mad?""Why would they?" You chuckle. "You just beat down a pro fighter! Honestly, sometimes I think you should've entered the tournament instead of me.""Ha... you shouldn't joke like that, Jack." Lucina laughs lightly."No joke. You just beat Fellini, Lucina, that's not something you just shrug off.""And we're going to do it, right?" Lucina asks."Do what?" You blink."Marathon all these." Lucina holds up the DVD box.""RIGHT. Right, yeah." You nod. Yeah, we'll get around to that."Then it's a promise." Lucina smiles again.>All right, that's for tonight! Unfortunately, all good things eventually come to an end, and Friday's thread will most likely be the FINAL GBFQ thread, so make sure not to miss it!

>>35375537Same here to an extent or get Char and Lucina but keep it ambiguous
>>35375537thats funny it is gonna end with us getting best girl holly
Now that you think about it, I don’t mind if we lose in the end. We gave it our best and had fun. We made friends and memories that will last with us as well give us something to pass down to the next generation.
>>35375593I mean, I think it's fairly obvious that, when down to it, Char would have won. But Lucina is second place, of course.
>>35375496Merc you never did tell us who won the Battle between Mao and Holly?Who one?
>>35375607And it sets things up if Merc decides to revisit the quest.I really want more. This is a fun and simple quest
>>35375607I agree. The journey was extremely fun, and that is what Gunpla is all about, at least to us.
>>35375607You have learned the true meaning of Gunpla, to have fun!
>>35375608Let's agree to disagree. I rather think of them as neck and neck or really even. But that is just my opinion
>>35375617One of them was in the top 8 of WorldsThe other is our sister
>>35375354I'm ready for some friendly rivalry combat banter throughout the match.That's what was pretty much missing during the Renatos match. Putting the verbal beatdown on the brothers' way of Gunpla battle, if they are really having fun or something. I think Meijin was the only one who obliged us with a verbal exchange during the match.
>>35375607I kind of want to win though to be honest.Though we're not going to lose without a fight
I can't wait for a boxer esque locker room talk up/ walk.Announcers and crowds going wild as we enter the ring.Two unknowns that came out of nowhere... whittled hundreds of contestants down to two...No matter who wins, history is being made.
>>35375655So its a even match then.I mean it's a imaginary battle between a Ball an a Crossbone that will make for an epic fight.Does anyone else believe that the ones piloting our Balls are haros?
>>35375665Of course. At the start of the battle, we definitely need to say something along the lines of "I've waited 6 years for this rematch!"
>>35375728I always imagined it was something more like this.
>>35375728I just imagined they were AI that would eventually become sentient and overthrow our Jesta.
>>35375789>>35375818You guys lack imagination.http://anime.astronerdboy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/03-Haro-and-Bright.jpgWell that anon that said they will gain senience I do hope so
>>35375496Merc, if your still here will our Balls will ever gain sentience?I just hope they don't say do a barrel roll during battle
>>35375928Or hijacking the Plavsky particle fields and warping us around warzones to do its bidding.
>>35375980Can we do that.Also are we going to have a repeat of the last battle? Sword vs Heat Ax?
The quest is going to end next session and I have yet to see Imouto molestations.Oh well. So much for that +3.
>>35376045I dunno if we can do that, but if there's something I've learned from all the sci-fi media I've consumed, it's that Rampant AI + Not Completely Understood Science Energy = Bad Times.
>>35376119We must have our balls talk to us
>>35375980>Our Balls take over the AI of the table and spread to other particle systems>Balls take over Earth via the tables>Gunpla destroys humanity
>>35376238Mother Nature can't even resist our Balls.
>>35376284Just like any other female within our range.We must surpass Felinni!
>>35376238>Earth is one giant Ball.
>>35376238Ball is All... omni-existent, spreading and changing the Non into Ball.You are the Non, who must become Ball or Void.We are the agents of Ball.We are Ball.

>>35376647But they save us
>>35376467>>35376647But where's the UNDERSTANDING?
>>35377082No understandingNo hopeOnly Ballmageddon with Holly as the queen
>>35377368What about Jake>\?
