Overall, this episode is only a little bit better for me than last episode. The fighting definitely improved. Although the fact that it did only made last episode's fighting even worse to me. Still, an improvement is an improvement. And yes, Iwark doesn't seem to be a really good dad. He just got back from rescuing Riria, and she's already out of his side. But, my goodness, as soon as those kids showed up, I thought, "Please don't take them to the Diva." And what did Grodek do? He took them to the Diva. Oh, sure, he has a "valid" reason to do so. I just hope they're not going to take those children with them when they leave.

But then, when the UE attacks, suddenly the two factions go "You go ahead! We will cover for you!", which is really ridiculous.
It's the opposite for me. I dislike Flit's conversation with those guys because he completely ignored what Don said earlier. In fact, Don had to repeat it again, and still Flit had no answer. It's a good thing the UE was there to break the conversation. And I actually don't mind the two factions teaming up. It's not like they're all buddies all of a sudden. They just have their priorities correct (in this case) and they know the UE is a big problem.

i hope they dont keep up the trend of making the episodes worse each week :P
teasing the titus in the preview of episode 6 and only showing it for like 10 seconds in episode 7 really is a dickmove. this whole episode was so obviously a filler just to have a reason to make the titus appear...

why would the Titus be able to jump while the Normal type wouldn't? theres a increase of 20~ tons, and no increase in thrusters?

Not a bad episode, did seem a bit more comical than the other episodes, but it was still enjoyable. The MS action between Zalem and Euba was great, I loved all the different weapons they had. The highlight for me was when the Titus punched the Baqto and it just flew off the screen. Didn't seem to bother it much though, heh. It sucks the Titus was saved for the end, but at least the action will still be going in the next episode.

I don't know what to make of this. Of course, it's nice to see Gundam already get damaged after only 7 episodes. On the other hand, I try so hard not to laugh during the episode, but it's just...I don't know where to start.

The Zaku v. Zaku Zalam v. Euba action is nice. The part when the old Zalam dude talk about how Flit is living in the past = as much as Grodek want to dispute it, it still holds true. On the other hand, though, that Zalam dude should have just pull out a gun and shoot Flit, steal Gundam, and dominate Euba. So what if some brat said that it's his? If Grodek steps in, shoot him as well...

Last note = I guess it's still too early to kill off Largan...

Another last note = Still waiting for Yamada Yurin to reappear. That should finally move the story instead of having an arc that's nothing but filler...

It's not an updated Genoace, it's an entirely different machine...

I think, right?

You're talking about Wolf's new MS? It's complete new (called G-Exes). Largan is the one only getting to used an updated Genoace instead of spanking new MS.

As far as how more powerful it is compared to Genoace, I've no clue...

This series is just not cutting it for me. The two warring factions are a joke, as is the 2ft tall old man who leads one of them, and the two morons who stand behind him and say the same thing over and over again in unison. What is the point of that? This conflict seems more like a sports rivalry than a war.

Precisely. It is tradition. Those poor people and outsiders would never get it. These are not the alliances of old but two very rich families that has devolved into gang turf warfare.

If the Federation military on Fardain weren't corrupt these two groups would have been shut up long ago.

As Grodek is trying to convey the Federation military is nothing more now than just ceremonial in nature. It has neither the experience or preserved its traditions.

boo...i was hoping to see how the gundam equips the new armor...guess the staff couldn't sort this out XD

and something about the timing in this episode seems strange...all of a sudden gundam catches the UE that is about to crash the jeep, and then, Genoace shows up at the base, and boom, Genoaces stands right in front of the UE in the next moment...then gundam teleports to the base to get the new toys and teleports again for the rescue...it would be far better if they can add some "running against the time" moments, so audiences will feel more involved whether the gundam can make it in time to save the day (like how setsuna tries to save Lockon but fail in s1), but instead, they chop it into many little parts....

The info-dump by Don on Grodek's past was like the biggest rolls eyes moment for me...Elegant thugs don't just spill the beans like that (Unless it's forcefully extracting character development)...Overall the episode had massive facepalm moments, but I did enjoy Don getting his fake Rumba Rawl on, and purple Zaku's look pretty sweet, although the animation has dipped so noticeably of late it's hard to get into the battle...I say every series, give me one vs. one sorties, but AGE's vs. fighting is so generic, a more chaotic scenario might proof visually more engaging...I just wish they could put more care in the fight-choreography department, Cool suit just blocking beams with one arm- has got to stop...

Finally, You'd probably expect me to hate the new Gundam, but I gave the ep an extra point, because I don't give a $hit^^, that was the Franky Franky One Piece Gundam, and I chuckled profusely by seeing it...A good chuckle mind you...

6/10...

Good to see G-Exe finally showing up next episode. So far the story is still a bit slow, and not much is going on in moving the plot forward. I was expecting Age to move a lot faster than typical gundam shows since the characters need to grow up and pass on to the next generation.

Didn't realize Age couldn't fly.

I agree. Given the short number of episodes each generation has, I expected the story to be a LOT faster than it is now. Given the current rate it's going, all this will probably just lead up to one major battle at the UE fortress before the next generation kicks in.

I apologize for nitpicking, but the link is 2chan(Futaba), not 2ch(2channel/ni channeru), 2 totally different boards.

That aside, I'm getting more and more disappointed by AGE. The weapons look uncool, and the choreography, how should I put it......? Looks like this anime is really meant for kids. D:

Sports rivalry, seems that way this episode thats for sure. I so wanted to give this a 5, i don't know where to began.

They really revealed about Grodek's family this early on huh? And looked like Grodek was somehow expected Flit to be "aye lets get em" since they both lost their family to the UE but Flit wasn't looking all on board.
Rest of the episode tho was just.......... Too much convenient factors, piss poor animations, fights uneventful, rallies held by Emily, a Gundam forty yard dash. I just want to laugh this episode off and forget that i watched it. The canister floating over Emily's head and landing in the yard. The sound it made in the air and when it hit the ground. Just comedy. "Gundam head twitches suddenly turns left" Flit: "This is the gundam evolution!!!"" Episode just killed me. Definitely not watching this one twice.
