Hoping to see Saji Crossroad's development, his meeting with Sergei?
Perhaps Andrei has info on Louise??

And of course more Gundam ownage!!
This past week I re-watched entire Gundam 00 s1/s2, and just last ep. of Seed for a quick fix

i'm expecting:
more development on Setsuna's past
an explanation on whats up with Marina and her country
Kira like reprogramming for gundams to fight on sand :-p
Ali to come back, and Tieria to be like, omgwtfbbq

i doubt it'll happen, but i want a named character to die... currently, in my mind, flags are still waving around Louise (though it probably won't happen until 18-25) or Sergei or Sergei's son.

Most interested in: what's Marina doing in the preview, what is Saji up to... and just how bad is Ali now...

Time to go to bed... so I can wake up to some nice fresh Gundam in the morning.

Don't the Gundams pretty much most of their moving while floating around thanks to the GN Drives? So there should be little need for any last minute coordinator level reprogramming needed in the middle of the battle.

Sheryl's (from Macross Frontier) speaking seiyuu is Aya Endo, who also happens to be Kinue's. ^^ So yeah, in a way, Ali killed off Sheryl.

And Mr. Bushido's seiyuu is Alto.

few thing I'd like to see:

1. What gonna happen to marina and azadistan
2. What's Ali doing in there
3. And how setsuna will react toward the destruction of azadistan and the apperance of Ali

judging from the preview statement (not the picture) are we gonna see setsuna went berserk this episode?

I just finished watching Frontier two days ago, and I never picked up on the Seiyuu similarities with Gundam 00.

By the way, I refuse to call the masked man "Mr. Bushido". It just sounds awful, and it is ridiculous that a Caucasian can be taken seriously as a Japanese.

Graham was my favourite character in the first season until the last episode, which ruined him. Setsuna had just fought an epic (and tiring) battle with Alejandro, and the Exia was suffering the side effects of coming off Trans-AM. And Graham still couldn't lay a decisive blow.

Anyway, I'm not really a fan of Ali, and find it stupid that he survived. Sure, he was based of Gauron, but that is no excuse for him to be given Gauron's insane and ludicrous penchant for surviving the destruction of his various Mechas. Besides that, Ali's survival demeans Neil's death.

Neil's death still means something for Tieria and Felt.

I don't think Graham aka Mr. Bushido would change his fighting style. He always dominated in close quarter combat. In addition, Setsuna fought each other enough times to know their distinct fighting style.

Why one earth would there be a rational explanation for naming a white caucasian, possibly from the North America region, a totally japanese name that sounds a bit too close like a swear word, make him wear a mask and outfit resembling a Japanese samurai, as well as have him pilot a Samurai mecha.

There is only a few reasons I can think up.

1. Somebody thought it was cute or clever.

2. Somebody seems to be bit too patriotic in trying to put their culture and history into the anime.

3. A few paranoid theorists from some of the blogs or forums claimed half-seriously that Japan is trying to make militarism and the armed forces more popular to the anti-militaristic Japanese public like the Keroro Gunsou anime. Personally, I doubt it.

Either way if Gundam 00 series had a 'A+' grade just because of all this it would have been knocked down to 'A-'.
