The scene where Mineva cuts open the bun and puts the vegetables and meat in it made me smile.

But the novel is not canon. CCA is canon.

This episode was a great masterpiece; from the epic entry (dialogue with flight control), the shot of Marida standing next to the Banshee after she powned Riddhe, to the great hommage of Bright Noa and everything else.

Too bad/It's such a shame the novels aren't available in english (maybe if the Unicorn DVD/BD sales are really good overseas they might consider it, I hope..)

Fortunately some generous people at bakatsuki picked up the translation of this novel, because from what I've read in the subforums (from the info other members shared) the novel story is even more awesome.

I've been considering emailing the people who recently published the Mobile Suit Gundam novels to ask if they can look into it, I'm sure if there's enough demand they might be able to translate and distribute them.

I am missing a few volumes, I'd be interested in translating if I get to read them
The OVA follows the book pretty closely so watching is better (if you don't mind the wait).

For the main outline, yes. Still I prefer the minor details that flesh the characters out more.

Like forexample, Minerva's replies to Martha's big talk :-

"I don't feel anything Maternal about you."
"You deny every masculine logic, yet you use them to make a pawn out of Marida."
"You are just using the masculine tone to hide your own sense of cold femline cruelty"

You can visit the Bakatsuki page and they have a link for people interested in helping to translate I'm assuming they have the source material and are willing to let you read it if you decide to aid with translations

Correction, I do have the entire series with me (at home). We're already done with the first two volumes, and I do hope to get helpers for this project as well. (I do believe there are some typos and grammatical mistakes out there. Been copying the names of the mobile suits from the gundam wikia, but they do change the names from time to time). I do have an ETA that the entire series will be completed just right before episode 6 comes out, but it'll be great if I get more translators.

Just watched the episode and I loved it. Great battle choreography, dialogue (well comparing to other gundam series ), and drama. Can't say much for plot advancement because I haven't read the LNs. Would've liked to see the Unicorn in action a bit more, but that's okay.

Also, I find it really ironic that despite Riddhe's hate of the Gundam, he must borrow its power in order to achieve his goals. Oh, and hypocritical.

I've never been a fan of Newtype magic, and this one just further reinforced my hate for it. Seriously.

Well, at least it didn't do anything magical, other than give the Unicorn "strength" to resist all that tension holding the cable and the Garancieres.

Fantastic episode. I'd put it up there with episode 3 as my favourites of the series. Was hoping to see the Banshee do more, though. Oh, and the Rozen Zulu's debut was kickass. A little too overpowered, I might say.

It's going to be a looooooong wait to episode 6...

That was easily the best non-combat scene in the episode
