The whole thing seemed a whoel lote easier than you had initially thought. Then again, you haven't really fought any of the event's powerhouses yet. You wonder how those events would go...Fortunately, you get one day off in between the preliminaries and the finals. Also, your friends and your parents would be coming over to cheer you and Charlotte on, since you both advanced to the finals. So there was that.Then again you could always use some training...>Go and meet your friends and family.>See if you can get some practice in with Ral.>Other
>>35138909>Go and meet your friends and family.
>>35138909>>Go and meet your friends and family.How about that ESPN commentary on the Wacky Races?
>>35138909>>Go and meet your friends and family.
>>35138909>>Go and meet your friends and family.Let's go
>>35138909>>Go and meet your friends and family.Let's see how they feel about how we handle our Balls.Do we learn a special move from Dad?
>>35138909>>Go and meet your friends and family
>>35139082>Do we learn a special move from Dad?Here comes the snow.
Don't know if the call for Customs is still up, but I'm working on downsizing and processing a few photos...
>>35138970>he is juggling his balls>yola dola dat>LITERALLY JUGGLING HIS BALLS>*yelling*
>>35138970I want to see our friends' reactions too.
>>35139272>yola dola datI hate you
>>35139272>Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, I have been announcing Gunpla Events for over 30 years, and I can say that, "I have now seen it all"...
First off I'd like to say thanks to Merc for rekindling my love of making things and "forcing" me into gunpla. It's been damn fun.Last thread you put out a call and it seems a few folks still want to see the "Spider Gouf" in action for whatever reason, so please feel free to annihilate my gunpla as you see fit. It would be an honor.>>35139226The original everyone seemed to like/hate/fear
>>35139617Getting slightly serious and continuing with my arm theme... Looking like something that could actually show up now.
>>35139662Everyone has a trump card and more arms means more cards.
>>35139686Unfortunately the HG Customize Campaign arm racks in tune with the ball jointed arms do not like to hold heavy weapons so it ended up as a pistol wielding dagger machine. Reminds me of the underside of a Horseshoe Crab for some reason.Oh and here's the back. Gotta protect that pack.
>>35138970Sorry, I've really busy these past couple days and haven't really had to time to devote to that.>>35138909Eh, you decide to meet up with your family and friends first. It felt like an eternity since you've seen them. According to the itinerary they sent, they should be arriving pretty soon. Actually, they've probably landed at the airport and are on their way to the hotel right now. "Hey Holly, let's go meet Mom and Dad. " You say, tapping your little sister on the shoulder. She's still toiling away at her improvised work table. "I'm almost finished here..." Holly mumbles."Nope. we're going now." You say, grabbing her by the collar and tugging her out of the chair. You then knock on Charlotte and Lucina's door, with Lucina answering."Oh, hello Jack." She looks at you. "Going off to meet the others?""Yeah." You nod. "You want to come with us?""Sure." Lucina nods. "It feels like we've been apart forever.""I know, time flies, right?" You chuckle. "Is Charlotte coming?""She's actually still tuning up her Gunpla. I'd force her to come along too, but I don't want to be rude...">Ah just leave her be.>UNACCEPTABLE>Other
>>35139747>>UNACCEPTABLEMandatory Fun Time
>>35139747>Ah just leave her be.
>>35139747>UNACCEPTABLEThis is fun time. Gunpla time is later.
>>35139747>>UNACCEPTABLEFor whatever reason I am reminded of Liberty Prime."Fun is the sovereign right of every American."

>>35139738And one for funsies because all dem hardpoints.>>35139747>Ah just leave her be.
>>35139747>>UNACCEPTABLECarry her above our head.Make MS thruster noises
>>35139747>Ah just leave her be.If she doesn't want to have fun that's on her.
>>35139805And two more gunpla since I had insomnia last night and couldn't stop building...
>>35139828And that's it. I've flooded the thread way too much.Thanks again for inspiring me and running one hell of a fun quest!
Also, this got drawn last night.
>>35139890God damn it Decu.
>>35139890>JGod damn it why is this funny
>>35139747"UNACCEPTABLE!" You bellow."Oh dear." Lucina sighs. However, she doesn't stop you as you stomp past."CHARLOTTE!" You yell."J-Jack!?" Charlotte turns from her work table, completely taken by surprise. "What are you doing here?""Making sure that you take a break, and have some FUN!" You say as you literally pick up Charlotte and haul her out of the room over your shoulder."H-hey!" Charlotte wails. "Stop iiiiiiit!"Fortunately, nobody was around to witness this silly event. With the preliminaries over, the fighters that failed to qualify for the finals were forced to leave. It made the dorms feel eerily empty. "Okay, convinced me. Please let me down!" Charlotte sighs."Are you telling the truth?" You ask."Yes." Charlotte rolls her eyes."Lucina, if she tries to run, you know what to do.""Got it." Lucina nods.You're not sure which girl is faster, but you're half interested in finding out. "Hey, maybe we should bring Old Man Ral with us? He and Dad seem to be pretty friendly with each other." Holly says as she tugs her shoulder.>Sure, the more the merrier.>Nah, let's not bother him.>Other
>>35140122>>Sure, the more the merrier.
>>35140122>Sure, the more the merrier.
>>35140122>Sure, the more the merrier.Provided he's not busy doing something with Takeshi and Rinko, of course. Where is the Iori family during this, anyway? Sei doesn't appear to be in the tournament this year.
>>35140122>Sure, the more the merrier.Fuck it, EVERYONE WILL HAVE FUN!>>35140164>Sei doesn't appear to be in the tournament this year.That's been mentioned several times throughout the quest.
>>35140200Then I clearly missed it. Could you tell me?
>>35140122>Sure, the more the merrier.There is no other answer.
>>35140122>>Sure, the more the merrier.Bring everyone, EVERYONE!
>>35139747>>>35138970Sorry, I've really busy these past couple days and haven't really had to time to devote to that.Aww, common Merc
>>35140229Well it's simple, he isn't participating in this year's tournament. Probably off conquering China or something.
>>35140122>Sure, the more the merrierMAXIMUM FUN. EVERYONE WILL HAVE FUN.EVERYONE.
>>35140280>Common>>35140284Thank you for more Liberty Prime, anon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=298Cw3_qGwE
>>35140284>Probably off conquering China or something.I see what you did there.
>>35140284Huh. I'm pretty sure I remember seeing him participating in the 8th World Tournament in the closing sequence for GBF. Oh well.
>>35139890Those Belkan genes>>35139805That seems like it would be fun to fight.
>>35140324I distinctly remember it as a Japan Regional Qualifier. Maybe he turned down the World Tourney invitation? Who knows.
>>35140365>Set ball to ramming speed>Knocks it over>Gunpla unable to right itself because it's so top and back heavy>Win by forfeit
>>35139805How the fuck would you even control that
>>35140284"Sei, polycap D goes into part G1!""Ehhh, you lost me, iinchou..."
>>35140293MAXIMUM FUN!NO FUN NOT ALLOWEDALL MUST HAVE FUN!THE CITIZENS WHO ARE NOT HAVING FUN SHALL BE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AND RE-EDUCATED TO BETTER FIT SOCIETY.
>>35140480I'm not sure he'd be able to do it on his own, he might need a hand.
>>35140506I believe it has way too many hands to begin with.
>>35140480I imagine it is a cockpit very cramped and very full of levers and switches akin to one of the first orbital capsules.The Pilot would also probably need to be on ALL the speed in order to make it even moderately combat effective... or a lot of it could be done via AI assistance or the arms could just mirror the others with a slight input delay I guess.I badly want to see this thing go JoJo on something.
>>35140532Why did you respond to yourself?
>>35140550What are you talking about?
>>35140122"Sure, the more the merrier." You nod.Well, the problem was actually FINDING Ral, but like Lucina, he always seemed to have that habit of just showing up when you needed him. And just like that, Ral just happens to cross your path."Ohoho, taking a stroll with your friends, I see." You hear Ral chortle. "You're certainly a lucky man!"You're not too sure what he's talking about."Hey, Mr. Ral." You grin. "We were actually going to go see my friends and family. They're actually coming down to see the finals.""Ah, I'd love to!" Ral nods. "Today has been a terribly slow day. All of the other fighters are too busy preparing for the finals.""Well, at least we got something to do!" You say. "We're going to meet them at the hotel.""Ah, I could use the exercise!" Ral laughs.>Ask him more about old times with your father.>Ask him more about the current fighters.>Ask him about previous tournaments.>Other
>>35140506>>35140532The funny part is I could easily have mounted upwards of 10 arms on it (plus the battle arms), but I don't actually have that many gunpla yet...
>>35140570>>Ask him about previous tournaments.
>>35140522HERESY DETECTED!PREPARE FOR TERMINATION!UNLEASH THE FUN MARINES!Let's stop before it gets too silly
>>35140570>>Ask him more about old times with your father.How did Dad fight back then?
>>35140570>>Ask him more about old times with your father.
>>35140570have him compare our fighting style to our fathers and give us pointers to improve on.

>>35140570>>Ask him more about old times with your father.>>35140568I was implying that the previous anon was also a post by Carlos, regardless of who wrote it.

>>35140821Do Titans count as mechs?
>>35140821Got you covered
>>35140570"Anyways, what was my dad like back when he was younger?" You ask."Yeah, I'm kind of curious, as well." Charlotte adds."Ah, those were the days." Ral chuckles. "Back then, most Gunpla were all about stock builds, and how well you could optimize them. Your father was drawn to the Pixie Gundam, though. It may not have been as powerful or as tough as the other Gunpla of the time, but he certainly made it into a speed machine. The way he could make that Gunpla move was astounding.""Did he ever compete professionally?" You ask."Ah, well, he always entertained the idea. However, he always had other commitments that prevented him from going for the World Tournament." Ral sighed. "It's a pity. He certainly had a lot of potential. Potential that he passed off to you, apparently.""Must be nice having parents sharing the same hobby as you..." Charlotte mumbles, a bit of bitterness in her voice."Is there something the matter?" Ral blinks.>Tell Ral about Charlotte's family situation.>Let Charlotte handle it.>Other
>>35140506>Pacific Rim GunplaI like this.>>35140699I feel like once we've ripped them all off he'd start laughing like a madman before slamming a button down screaming that it wasn't even his final form before 1000 particle hax arms appear around him and he bullet punches us 8 trillion times a second before he overloads his gunpla causing it to explode.
>>35140892And one that goes faster in either franchise
>>35140901>>Let Charlotte handle it.Only if she wants to share...
>>35140901>Let Charlotte handle it.If she wants to talk about it it's up to her

>>35140901>>Let Charlotte handle it.The good option.
>>35140901>>Let Charlotte handle it.
>>35140901>Tell Ral about Charlotte's family situation.
>>35140909>All while screaming ORAORAORAORAORAORA>>35140901>Let Charlotte handle it.
>>35141076"Jake... you're already dead.""Wh... what? How are you bleeding? Did you cut yourself with a razor like wrestlers do or so-OHMYGODSOMANYFISTS"
>>35141182"THIS WAS MORE THAN THE APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF FISTS NEEDED"
>>35140901You decide to let Charlotte handle this. It was her own personal problems, after all. You didn't really have any place to talk about that sort of thing."Ah, it's not much." Charlotte sighs. "My parents just don't agree with me being into Gunpla. Simple as that."Ral just looks at Charlotte and nods slightly. You can tell from the look on his face that he's not entirely convinced that's the full story, but he doesn't press the issue any further."Well, everybody is entitled to their own opinions." He says.At this point, the hotel finally begins coming into view. You check your phone, but don't see any updates. It seems the others haven't arrived just yet. "Jack, may we talk private?" Ral says, putting a hand on your shoulder.>Sure thing.>Can this wait?>Other
>>35141306>>Sure thing.Man talk incoming.
>>35141306>>Sure thing.A man-to-man talk?
>>35141306>Sure thingAnd here comes the "ya'ller screwen around too much" talk>>35141182>>35141286"I hear your team is the Sorcerers. I thought you would appreciate seeing my best spell."
>>35141306>Sure thing.Oh oh! Is it about Gunpla Assassins gunning for us? One last sage advice, perhaps? Maybe a bit of insight regarding the Meijin that he wants to tell us?
>>35141306>Sure thing.Oh shit son serious talk time.
>>35141306"Sure thing." You nod, a bit curious. "Lucina, how about you and Charlotte and Holly go on ahead? Me and Mr. Ral will catch up.""Sure." Lucina nods."What's that all about?" You hear Charlotte ask her."Apparently a one on one talk with Mr. Ral." Lucina replies.However, they walk out of earshot before you can hear anything else from them. "So, what is this about?" You ask Mr. Ral."I have a feeling." Ral grumbles. "Charlotte is not telling the whole truth.""Well, it IS a personal matter." You point out."It just concerns me." Ral says. "From what I've seen of her, Charlotte strikes me as an extremely lonely girl. I think that's why she's so deep into Gunpla and that concerns me.""How?""Because she's not necessarily into Gunpla because it's fun, but because it provides an escape from her personal problems." Ral frowns. "While she does seem to be enjoying herself, I fear it's for the completely wrong reasons.""How is that a problem?" You raise an eyebrow."It's not a healthy mindset to have." Ral grunts. "Because if she suffers any more problems she'll just immerse herself deeper into the hobby, and I fear she'll forget why she loved Gunpla in the first place. I've seen it happen with the Second Meijin, and I don't want to see it repeated.""And what do you think I can do?" You blink."Right now, from the way I see it, you're her one and only true friend." Ral looks at you. "You're in the best position to resolve the root of her issues.""You mean her parents?" I'm just a kid, not a a psychiatrist." "When the time comes." Ral gives you a serious look. "Will you help her, even if she doesn't want it?">Yeah, I will.>I don't think it's my place to get involved.>Other
>>35141703>>Yeah, I will.Hell yes we will help her, though we will need some info before we save our friend and might loose her in the process.
>>35141703>>Yeah, I will.Of course
>>35141703>Yeah, I will.BEST GIRL NEEDS OUR HELP, GENTS.
>>35141703>Yeah, I will.
>>35141703>>Yeah, I will.She's our friend.
>>35141703>>Yeah, I will.
>>35141703>Other"Depends on what happens. I want to help her, but I might not be able to. Either way, though, I'll be there for her. She's my friend."
>>35141703>>Yeah, I will.She's our friend. Hell yes, all the yes.
>>35141703>>Yeah, I will.We'll "help" her alright. Give her a new outlet and all that.
>>35141703>Yeah, I will.Those Belkan genes won't allow us to not help her.
>>35141703>Yeah, I will.>"She isn't just my Rival, or just my 'Char'. She is my friend and I will do whatever I can to help her."
>>35141703You guys know this will end with us fighting against each other in the finals, with the Plavsky Particles doing some crazy Newtype UNDERSTANDING shenanigans because they reacted to our emotional states, right?
>>35141922Yes and it will be EPIC.
>>35141922We can hope.
>>35141922That is fine yes.Because that sort of understanding means char's confession.
>>35141922Or she'll lose to some hypercompetent Korean kid and we'll have a tearful and heart-wrenching time attempting to bring her back from the brink of her mental breakdown.
>>35141922Yeah, Naked Space Magic tends to pop up a lot these days.
>>35141922I hope so.
What are the odds that Charlotte's father being the Demon Lord?
>>35141922>>35141944>>35141958>and as it's happening, someone broke into the sound booth at the stadium, and a certain song starts playinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1gZXdLciDl
>>35142079good, lets have a challenge!
>>35142086Which song are you trying to play? Says the video doesn't exist.
>>35141958It ain't Gundam without Naked Space Magic endings
>>35142108http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1gZXdLciDILemme retry. Linking youtube from this phone is a bitch.
>>35142163That would be it.
>>35141703>>Yeah, I will.Please be the one who shows her the warmth of the human spirit.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80XAJKqRU9kSo, have you found a reason to fight yet, buddy?
>>35142015Really fuckin' low.Her parents don't like Gunpla.Which Ironically makes it more likely.The Demon Lord saw how Gunpla really was an ultra-competitive hellhole where only the best and strongest survived and thw rest saw the fruits of their hard work crushed and melted.Disgusted with Gunpla, he swore to never play again, tried to be a good father and discouraged his daughter from getting involved with it.I still prefer my theory that our mom is secretly the Demon Lord affer she fell I love with her Rival and Pixy doesn't know because he never saw Cypher's face
>>35142015>yfw Charlotte faces her Dad to show she really loves gunpla, and that she should continue>yfw when this song starts playinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vds5cJ_RnAU&hd=1
>>35142182I like the idea of demonlord mom who knew and fought and quarreled with pixie.Much more amusing that way.
>>35142182So Mom dressed as a boy to fit in better and nobody noticed that she was a girl, I guess.
>>35142163So that's the name of this song. I was looking for it after Unicorn Episode 7 but couldn't remember its name. Thanks, anon.
>>35142182I personally think it's super likely, exactly for the reasons specified. Didn't the Demon Lord never fly the skies again? Our dad, Pixy, discovered what the Demon Lord knew all along. Family trumped all.
>>35142182>>35142211The prequel practically writes itself!
>>35142182>PLOT TWEEST>BOTH CHARLOTTE'S DAD AND YOUR MOM WERE THE DEMON LORD>THEY JUST SWITCHED PLACES OCCASIONALLY
>>35142230Then why aren't Charlotte's parents ever around? Maybe he got caught up on providing for his family and forgot that spending time with them is just as important?
>>35142211I bet she had a bitchin hat to cover her eyes with shadows and nobody really got a good look at her.
>>35142264Possibly. That's when Pixy and he have the climactic duel in the end, with the Demon Lord responding that he has found a reason to fight, and that was for his daughter.
>>35142230Except Charlotte's Dad is kind of a bad father, what with putting his job before his daughter and not realising the home schooling was making it difficult for her to make friends.
Holy shit guys, I think I found our theme songhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zv_oUuz4H58&hd=1The name is fucking perfect.
>>35141703"Yeah, I will." You nod. "I'm not sure what I can do, but I'll do what I can.""Ha! Spoken like a true fighter and a man!" Ral chortles and looks up. "Ah! It looks like we should be going!"You look over at the hotel to see one of those hotel shuttles pulling up to the front door, no doubt carrying your friends and family. You start dashing your way over, regrettably leaving Ral behind as the older man works to try and keep up with you."Mom! Dad!" You wave."Ha! Jack!" Dad grips you in an extremely tight bear hug. "That was some of the finest fighting I've seen in ages!""Are you sure it wasn't more of a performance than fighting?" Mom smirks. "He really was acting like a clown out there.""Ah, well, I was just caught up in the moment." You laugh. "DUUUUUDE!" Mac punches you in the shoulder. "That was some crazy shit during the race! Surfing a mobile armor and juggling Balls on top of it? Only an idiot like you would think of something like that!""I dunno, you're pretty theatrical and just as much an idiot as me." You smirk."You certainly do have a... unique way of fighting." Karen says, trying to force a smile. "Though I have to say, Kenneth was absolutely livid when he saw it.""How's he been doing, anyways?" You ask, even though you weren't particularly concerned."Oh, he's doing fine, though he's taking a break from Gunpla to 'find himself'." Karen rolls her eyes at those words. "But I honestly think he's trying to improve.""I see." You nod.(cont)
>>35142315"So you're in the finals!" Amy says happily, slapping on you the back. "Looks like the Jester really likes you!""Haha, yeah." You grin. "Deep inside, he's still the original Juggler.""Right, right!" Amy laughs. "Nice job with the prelims." Jake nods. "Never a dull moment when you're on the screen.""Um thanks?" You laugh uncertainly. "Ah! Larry!" Ral laughs. "Good to see you've come!""Ral!" Dad laughs of both men initiate a totally manly and totally not homosexual hug. "I knew I'd find your old ass out here!""Is that really Mr. Ral himself?" Karen whispers to you."Yep. The real deal." You nod."Oh... oh my." Karen gasps. "Ah, and these must be your friends." Ral turns to face you all. "You all have the look of fine fighters! I hope you'll all cheer on Jack and Charlotte here with everything you have!"That seems to pump everybody up."Anyways, we're going to be catching up with Ral here." Dad says and hands you a HUGE stack of Japanese yen. "How about you show your friends the sights in the meantime? We'll meet back here in the hotel."Yeah, sure." You nod."So, I'm sure you've been ALL OVER the place while you were here, huh?" Mac grins."Um, well..." To tell the truth, you were too busy with the tournament, and never actually ventured out of the tournament grounds that much. "Not really..."You quickly dig out your tourist map and give it a scan. There were lots of places to go around the stadium, to accommodate all of the spectators that came here every year.>Show them the stadium.>Go shopping.>Find that Gundam them park you heard about.>Other

>>35142339"Well, I heard they have a Gundam theme park nearby..."Suddenly, Holly and Amy literally warp right in front of you, stars in their eyes."Wherewherewherewherewherewherewhere?!?!!" They squeal.Wow, you guess they really loved theme parks."Ah, well, it shouldn't be too hard to find." You chuckle.In fact, the hotel actually had a shuttle to take you straight there, as it was a popular tourist spot. It doesn't take more than fifteen minutes to reach the park, and in that time you catch up with you friends, telling them about all the people you met and stuff you did during the tournament. Finally, you're let off the bus, and the first thing you see is the famous 1:1 statue of the original RX-78 gundam. You heard that they actually packed the thing up and moved it to the tournament grounds every year for the Gunpla Festival. You're quite boggled at how they manage to move something so huge across the city like that.Immediately, Holly and Amy dash forward to start ogling and taking pictures of the statue while the others go over in a more relaxed pace. Meanwhile, you check the map for possible places to go.>Meijin's Gunpla Academy>Rides!>Shows!>Other

>>35142749>Go for some intermediate rides.>Kick reason to the curb and go on the most badass rides!First we do the relatively tame rides. Then when Holly complains that she's bored we take her on the crazy ones and force her to keep up a tough face instead of admit her discomfort.

>>35142749"Guys." You say, pointing up to a ridiculously high roller coaster. "We should ride OPERATION METEOR.""Whoa that's... a serious drop." Mac gulps."What are you, scared?" You grin."No way!" Mac laughs unconvincingly. "Bring it on!""I thought it would've been higher." Lucina tilts her head."I know, right? Though I guess it'll look higher when we're actually on it." Charlotte nods."...huh." Jake says simply.Amy and Holly are already lining up."Erm..." Karen's eye twitches. "Maybe I should just stay down here to, erm, keep an eye on our things.">Are you scared?>Sure thing. Whatever you say, boss.>Nonsense! Let's go have FUN!>Other

>>35142990I like to think that we are actually saying these things to everyone around us.

>>35142957>Nonsense! Let's go have FUN!
>>35142957>Nonsense! Let's go have FUN!Is someone not having FUN?holy shit is that 90+ degree drop
>>35143039Yeah, there's a park near me that has one. I've never mustered the courage to go on it, though.
>>35143039>Are you scared?
>>35142957>Nonsense! Let's go have FUN!Mandatory FUN
>>35143062Pussy It's okay, it won't be as bad as you think it would be, go try it.No fucking way, I love roller-coasters, I just can't believe there is one that is 90+ degree drop and I haven't heard about it.

>>35143149Wait shit meant >>35143090 goddamnit
>>35142957"Nonsense! Let's go have FUN!" You say, taking Karen's had. "We will not accept anything less!""B-but-" Karen stammers."Besides, if you're scared, you've got all of us here to back her up." You grin. "As long as none of us are sitting behind her." Mac wisecracks."Now that's rude." Lucina frowns. "Usually, vomiting takes place after the ride is concluded."Eheh, you're not making me feel any better about this..." Karen sighs. You all line up. Fortunately, Holly just barely manages to meet the minimum height requirement, though some well timed whimpering and puppy eyes also help her convince the ride attendant to let her pass. After that, it's just a matter of negotiating the line, and hearing the narration about Operation Meteor that the ride was based on.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgrCuQ8EKWUOf course, everybody is excited except for Karen, who continually has a look of nervousness on her face, though you each take turns trying to encourage her that things will be all right.However, the moment of truth comes, and the roller coaster car, designed to look like the Wing Gundam in plane mode, rolls up while a bunch of pale faced people with both terrified and sick expressions stumble out."Well, that's encouraging." Karen mumbles."Ah, it's part of the fun!" Amy laughs and pushes Karen forward. "Come on!"You all board the ride and it slowly takes off, making that long, arduous climb to the top. As you look down, you realize that this roller coaster was REALLY fucking high. Everybody seems anxious for the drop, except for Karen who's eyes remain shut.And finally, the ride reaches the top of the drop, just teetering over the edge before plummeting to earth.>Scream like a little girl. >Zero.

>>35143135It's name is Kingda Ka. It is the tallest coaster in the world, and used to be the fastest until Formula Rossa at Ferrari World (yes, that's a thing) came along. It was built solely to dethrone Top Thrill Dragster from those titles.It also has a second ride attached to it, ZUMANJARO: DROP OF DOOM, a drop tower.>>35143179>Zero. Fucks.

>>35143415You just put on a pair of sunglasses you've been saving for this moment and put up your best smug grin that you can manage. This was certainly going to make for a really great picture. SMUGNESS GO.Meanwhile, your friends were pretty much acting how you predicted, with a combination of hysterical laughter and terrified screaming. Charlotte, Holly and Amy were having the time of their lives, while Karen and Mac seemed like they desperately wanted to be somewhere else. Lucina and Jake, like you, didn't seem phased at all, but they weren't nearly as stylish as you were.Finally, the ride is over, and Karen just stumbles out, weak kneed."Never... again..." She groans."Aw, it wasn't so bad." Charlotte laughs, patting Karen on the back, which was the LAST thing she needed."Of course you have to make a fool of yourself on the roller coaster picture, too." Lucina sighs as she looks at the screens displaying the pictures taken during the drop."Well, you know me, the class clown." You laugh."So what do we do now?" She asks.>MORE RIDES>Meijin Gunpla Academy>Shows>Other

>>35143812Huh, that Meijin Academy thing had you kind of intrigued. Was it just called that, or did they actually have the Meijin present? You might as well find out. You head down to where the map says the Academy is located, near the front of the park. There, you can see long rows of tables with lots and lots of starter Gunpla kits, and quite a large number of people of varying ages sitting down crafting presumably their first Gunpla."Why are we here?" Charlotte asks. "We all know how to build Gunpla, you know.""Shh!" You hiss and point.And there, at the end, was the goddamn Meijin himself. However, he didn't look nearly as menacing as he did in the stadium, and you mostly attribute it to the fact that he was personally coaching a bunch of kids even younger than Holly on how to build Gunpla.Huh, it seemed like he was actually a pretty cool guy.>Go talk to the Meijin.>Leave him to his work.>Other

>>35144277Why the hell not, you might as well try to talk to the Meijin himself. You stride forward and take a seat at one of the benches and wave."Well, here there, Meijin, or, Kawaguchi, or, um, whatever you're usually called."Crap, that opening could have gone better.The Meijin just takes one look at you, and you notice an ever so slight smile on his, as if he was amused at your sudden appearance."Ah, if it isn't the Jester himself." The Meijin says, taking a seat across from here. "You can just call me Meijin.""Um, all right." You nod. "And Jester? Is that really what they call me?""After that stunt you pulled during the race? Are you surprised?""You have a point there." You sigh. "So what brings you here? I doubt you're here for the Gunpla building lessons." The Meijin motions to the other people at the other benches, being tended to by trainers.>I was just passing by and wanted to say high.>It seems like you've been paying quite a lot of attention to me.>Other

>>35144614"I was just passing by and wanted to say hi." You shrug. "Aren't competitors allowed to meet each other before facing each other?""That is true." The Meijin nods. "Since we've both made it into the finals, I hope we get the chance to face one another. I especially enjoy gauging the skill of newcomers.""Ah, I got the feeling you were interested in me and Charlotte." You nod."In a way. You both seem to be worthy opponents." A smile tugs at the Meijin's mouth. "Your silly antics actually remind me of a very silly pair of fighters.""Meijiiiiiin!" You hear a child whine. "I think I put the head on the wrong waaaaaaay!""If you excuse me." The Meijin gives you a polite nod. "Duty calls.""Knock 'em dead." You nod back.Afterwards, you all spent the rest of the day messing around in the park. Holly had a blast in one of the shows, which involved actors dressed up as SD Gundams. You "volunteered" Holly to act as the damsel in distress as Knight Gundam fought off a villainous gang of Zakus who were obviously up to no good.You also went on several of the tamer rides to make things easy for Karen, like the Ball teacup ride, and the White Base river ride, where you could ride around on boat built to be a replica of the White Base.(cont)
>>35145071However, the highlight of the day seemed to be the SEKIHA LOVE LOVE TENKYOUKEN ride. Nobody could seem to agree who to ride with who. Particularly, which girl would ride with you. Then Holly came up with a bright idea."Why don't ride with all of them?"And so you had to ride the same ride five times, accompanying Charlotte, Lucina, Amy, Karen, and Holly. It was an... interesting experience.You all then returned to the hotel, where Ral treated you all to this neat little sushi place he knew, where you all caught each other up with what you were all doing that day. Dad laughed his ass off at the Love Ride story, while Mom just shook her head. Ral excused himself quickly when he got a sudden case of hemorrhoids. However, all good things had to come to an end, and you had to reluctantly return to your dorm to get some sleep. After all, the finals started tomorrow, and you needed to be ready. >And that's it for tonight! I have to stop things short a bit earlier than usual due to some business I have to take care of tomorrow morning.>As always, next thread will be this Tuesday. Don't forget Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and PJ Witches on Friday!
>>35145071>>35145080>Ball teacup rideOkay, tell us: How thrilled was Holly to actually get to ride in a Ball?Also, Ral's butt suddenly started itching? That means Gunpla crime is afoot. I hope everything's alright. I guess we'll just have to see next time. Thanks for running, Merc. See you next time.

>>35145080'ey Merc, /m/ regular here, and I recently started following this from the archives. Finally caught up today, and I just wanted to say you're doing a fantastic job with this. It has been a blast to read, so keep up the good work.
>>35145080Oh, Ral... you and your hemorrhoids...Thanks Merc for the quest! It was fun following this while putting together my HG Nu Gundam, fin funnels are tedious.I was the writefag from a few threads back, too bad I don't have the chance to write more, since it looks like this quest is wrapping up soon.
>>35145167Holly supports the age of onee-sans, she wants them all.
Is it too late to offer up a Custom Gunpla to be sacrificed in the Quest? I've got a shitty Victory custom I'd like to have Jack obliterate.
>>35145649I wholeheartedly support any notion to add a little more Late UC units to be offered to the Plavsky Gods.
>>35145649Just post it anyway then update the suptg archive and hope Merc reads it.The only person to post a custom has been the Gouf guy anyway. I think.
>>35139828>>35139855I guess I could see these two being effective as a team, but only 2v1ing. Is the arm guy and them part of a team or something? That one comes off a bit try hard. Like a team rocket type that breaks out this new crazy thing and thinks he can't lose, then just gets blown the fuck out by the protagonist as a throw away gag.>>35145649Never hurts to post I guess. Unfortunately I don't do customs and am pretty content with my stock kits aligned in the same old poses up in my display case, so none from me.
If anything, this quest makes me wish there were decent GM kits in the HG range, but no they're all super dated and off color.At least they're cheap.
Idea for a custom to fight. A customized Kshatriya that's fast and dodgy as fuck and swarms with its funnels. The builder installed boatloads of defensive systems, added more verniers, shaved the armor down to the thinnest it can possibly be and not shatter the moment it moves. The thrust:weight data is an orgy of mind bending numbers, but it all boils down to this: Less weight. More power. If you can hit it, it goes down like nothing, but good luck landing a hit on the damn thing.
>>35146307AOE or AOD attacks seem like an instant game over unless it just sits in the corner sunning on a lawn chair sipping lemonade while a huge swarm of funnels wreck your shit. Then again why tech for speed in that case?Funnels are one of those things that seem like the best way to use them is with a bully heavy hitting kit since they'll act like a massive swarm of fast angry bees, allowing you to swing around more power or take hits as needed until the funnels or your superior firepower bring them down.As a matter of fact; a guntank using funnels would be a hoot.>>35146285I feel that. The HG like is also shit for anything with treads.
