Ratings & Reviews
Two perceptions of the same enemy
by Mr. Bond -
While the first part of the series (December Sky) introduces Io Flemming and Daryl Lorenz, Bandit Flower shows a common enemy between the two, with each pilot wanting something specific from this common enemy.
While the soundtrack of Jazz is unique to the Gundam franchise, it blends very well, especially on the parts for Fleming to be in action.
Highly recommended for a reasonable price, and the dubbing is not too bad.
Visually rich, but incomplete
Thunderbolt Season 2/Bandit Flower has a problem that Season 1/December Sky did not; an anticlimax. The animation is as on-point as ever, even more UC machines get neat redesigns, and the character writing is decent enough that you'll be rooting for Io and Daryl, as well as the newcomers.
The sudden ending leaves you wanting more, but the manga needs to get to a point where enough content exists to justify a third season.
