5pm in Tokyo (GMT + 9hours). That would translate to 9am (GMT +1hour) in my timezone, normally in time for breakfast.

Excellent, this time I'll be ready. I won't be a fucking hour or half hour late, like the last two episodes.

Or rather, that's when I eat breakfast. My German friends usually meet for brunch around 11am on Sundays.

Going by the screen cap, Titus messes up a bunch of UE, as does the G-Exes.

Lots happened in the episode, including some sweet action. It went by way too quickly.

Spoiler for More UE revelations:

It's interesting to see Genoace Wolf Custom putting together side by side with Zedas. This will be the last time we gonna see Wolf's former MS stored after he had acquired G-EXES.

FANGU! His flashy entrance compensated for his lack of screen time in the last episode.

8/10. The extended edition Titus refitting (which is gunpla accurate) and the Dark Merchant revelation greatly helped improve this episode (compared to the 7th). I can't believe Largan with such poor aim lasted that long against the Baqto, but some of the UE units were clearly just playing with the melefs. Did Flit and Woolf shouted "Beam Lariat" and "White Fang" for their finishing moves? As observed earlier, the Mardonner Workshop IS the Anaheim Electronics of this gundam universe.

IMO, the G-EXES looks better in black; it's almost like a batman MS.

Emily had 3 lines in the whole episode (besides the sighs of relief).

One : Flitto....
Two : Flitto....
Three : Flitto....

*is happy that Emily's annoyance level dropped massively* . Now we just need Yurin back and Emily to disappear forever and ever........

That side, i thought the episode was good. The extended sequence with Largan's fight and the Titus's fitting helped to alleviate the terrible pacing set in the previous episode somewhat. Not sure why did they even bother butchering the last episode with the terrible pacing TBH.

I still despise the Titus. Horrible horrible design, fingers crossed that it never ever appears again. The G-exes was cool and slick as hell though. Correct me if i am wrong but did it have the first "real" beam saber in the series? All the other beam "sabers" shown so far have been the short tiny "daggerish" (ie athetic looking) types. Really can't believe Wolff said that the Titus was almost as cool as his new suit at the end .

Odd sounding lines in the episode (IMO)
Vargas while referring to the Titus : If you can't shoot it down , punch it

Little red haired girl : I went along with them so i could help them

7/10.

Good episode. Like how they expand on the fight between Largan and the Baqto. Largan/Genoace was not that bad, if only the standard Genoace weaponry could scratch any UE suit.
Titus is basically a brawling tank. Like the spike beams it has. AGE/Gundam uppercut and knee were the moves of the day.
G-Exes probably has modified UE tech in it. Like how Woolf telling the viewer the main selling point of the G-Exes ^^.
Yeah Madorna engineering plant is AGE's Anaheim.
See now I am concerned, 8th episode and we seem to be not even half way through with Flit's story. Suspect Flit with new design will be present during Asemu's arc.

So Flit has 4 UE kills and Woolf 2 in this episode. Anyone got the full count?
