I really wish this was a full season rather than specials. Anyways, this will probably be rushed but I hope this will conclude the series in a definite way.

It had really bad sales. Especially for Studio 8 production. So nothing strange they haven't made full S2.

I had issues with this series but it was better than other recent ones in the same genre.

It's a real shame it's not getting a full season to wrap everything up 'cause truthfully, although I can't be sure I'm quite convinced this is not their original plan.

It's like F91 all over again (although that was quite a different situation).

The more serious mecha series is almost extinct sadly (and this wasn't even THAT serious, it tried to incorporate stuff from Geass and Seed).

That's actually rather sad to hear. Not to say the show was perfect by any stretch, but I felt like it had some honest work put into it.

I really hope we get a full explanation for what happened at the end of S1, I feel like that can only be properly done with a proper season though.

The game did fairly well on the other hand, iirc, from what I understand.

Shame too, because I really liked BC. It feels like something that'll just be forgotten and never expanded upon like other Sunrise shows that never bothered to sell incredibly well.(Dragonar comes to mind.)

Oh well. There's always the possibility of getting it in Super Robot Wars which I'd be perfectly fine with given the series is ripe for it.

I enjoyed BC. Yeah, not the best show out there, but it has some good moments.

These PVs have the characters yelling/saying Aoba a lot. Makes me think he'll die. But, since time travel is involved...they may use that again, like they seemingly did for the end of season 1.

Thats stinks their only going to get a two-parter ova/special ending. Then again, i'm grateful it was funded than not having anything at all.

Hopefully, they'll explain why there time-distortions in first place.

spoiler[Chief bad guy was girl's deranged obessive wingman. Who was flung back in time even further after events of the first episode. He technically created the mess and empire in the first place that world is fighting off. Hopefully the two-parter will make more sense of the reality of situation. Specially now the loop in time is broken, she was prevented from going back into time. You got love time travel.]

Sakurai's too good. LOl, no "HINNNAAAA!"

There were bad sales? That's a shame. It was very simple, but I thought there was plenty of potential. Laughing Of course, the final battle is in space.
