This is how things are in the Wing EW universe here. You only need to compare Katoki's designs for the Wing Universe to see the trend.

I've realized something after BSing with another reader over in a PM, Prometheus has this "Warhead" weapon as mentioned on page 205... I think this thing's packing a nuke... in which case oh crap... and in that case that makes a lot of sense as to why it was the one Gundamjacked by Katherine... The Preventers were contemplating using the "Nuclear Option."

New theory:
Each of he scientists started building 2 suits, but ultimately just finished one. The ones that weren't completed where gathered up and somehow put under Quatre's jurisdiction without his knowing. And that is why they all look like their EW counterparts!

Ya, I kinnda wish they would look somewhat more different/ evolved then the EW ones.

As far as Quatre with the bow and arrow, the kid is not just a gifted musician. I wouldn't be surprised if he even knew how to preform a Japanese tea ceremony at this point.

Well, they are endangering 3 billion people one way or another, so...

"I designed the best Gundam I possibly could. Why would I make four other variations of it?" -Professor G, ep. 17

Try as much as you will, it just doesn't make sense that there were incomplete suits lying around in Quatre's basement. Especially not incomplete Mars Suits. Unless you're telling me that the scientists all survived Libra's fall (which admittedly wouldn't be very surprising considering how no one in the freaking series gets killed in an explosion ...except for Darlian ), there is no reason for them to design something to be used in an environment that's hardly accessible or significant at the time.

...then again, Epyon is flying around Mars, too. So I guess it's easy to refit normal MS for Mars use. I still stand by my point though. Why waste precious resources to build two suits?

And if anyone hid them in his basement, it ought to be Zayeed. I can't believe Instructor H just stuffed them in there and no one knew. Then again, Quatrine popped outta nowhere, too. Huh.

I'd like to see that. xD But yeah, agreed. Quatre is getting way too little credit for all the awesome stuff he can pull. Besides being a gifted musician he's also a top-notch swordsman and martial artist. That OZ soldier barely had time to ask what he's doing before he got flung out of his Aries. And let's not forget that it took only him and Heero to take over an entire OZ vessel. Though I can't help but laugh every time I see Quatre holding a machine gun. It looks so out of place.

I also have the sneaking suspicion that he's wearing a Goron tunic underneath his shirt and pants because seriously, that kid is totally heat-resistant. Trekking through the desert? Traveling in a spaceship with temperatures above 80C/180F? Except for sweating his butt off it doesn't seem to faze him. o_o

So I just noticed in paging through Endless Waltz, there's a pic of Mariemaia holding the music box. :S

So that's what she's cradling... I always wondered about that. Anyway, heads up Deacon, there's also a pic of Heero not holding a music box while he's aiming a gun at Mariemaia. So at least the EW novel isn't as silly.

I know... I'm just grasping at straws at this point and welcoming all cartoon logic I possibly can.

He does. You just don't know it ^_6
I thought the translation was 80F and used to laugh at this... 180F makes much more sense. Poor Quatre, he must have baked on his way back to earth.

It's likely in his hand in that pic... the scene from Preventer 5 is a direct copy of Endless Waltz, basically.

Yeah, it's so small that it gets a little less silly. If it's small in Mariemaia's hand, then it would be completely covered in Heero's. But still.

The thing is... during the whole events of EW... how did Heero get it? Did Mariemaia leave it by accident in the Colony in which Relena was kidnapped, and Heero and Duo went to in order to rescue her?

You're right that Heavyarms and HA Kai being bland upgrades is certainly not a unique thing to Kotaki. Even Okawara's design of both Kai's are nothing more then bolting on a few thrusters and adding a single weapon with no major changes to the body.

Depending on how you look at it Promethus could be considered just keeping with the theme that HA/Kai and Sandrock/Kai set, thing is if that is true then it's even more like Sandrock's upgrade will be minor.

Based on the armament mentioned about Scheherazade (See Page 205 quote below in spoiler), it will be a drastic change from the Sandrock, and Sandrock Kai weapons wise.

That's awesome.

The more changes the better, that said it was a good thing to be pointed out that it wasn't just Katoki who left HA as he was for the most part. In fact Katoki changed HA Kai for the most part more then Okawara.

Maybe he picked it up when no one was looking after he demolished the Presidential bunker.

With all that's been revealed in FT, it's not too far-fetched.

Hey everyone. I'm know as Purdy in the GW fandom and have been a long time fan of the anime. But like most of us, as we grew up, GW has lost its relevance until Frozen Teardrop came to be. Since then, I've been dropping in and out of this forum to update myself on this convoluted, plot hole ridden, train-wreck of a sequel to our beloved anime. Just reading snippets here and there are enough to have me go dizzy with confusion; like the original show itself wasn't hard enough to follow. One thing for sure is, you can't fault FT for being uneventful or slow like the series was:S.

In any case, I still find myself hard to keep up with what's going on so I have a few questions. Anyone willing to answer, I'll be very thankful . So...

1. I already knew from Wikia that Duo was nothing but a selfish, irresponsible ass to Hilde for jerking her about by leaving, then marrying, then leaving her again, not to mention piling her with debt....but I just read from a past post here that he in fact actually married her FOR HER MONEY?!?! So not only was he a selfish deadbeat but he was also a gold digger? o.O

2. Am I to assume that Katsuyuki also rewrote EW? What is all this talk with the music box? Since when did Marie or Heero have a music box? What's the significance?

3. I've read "Interlude of the Heart" Part 1, the continuation to Preventer 5 (to my utter dread :S). So far, I'm not liking it but its entertaining at how crazy its getting. Has part 2 come out yet? If yes, what happened and where can someone link me?

4. What is the relevance of revealing everyone's past?? Like Heero's, Treize's, Relena and Milliardo's parents, etc. Is it neccessary? What's the connection with what's going on now? Can someone quickly summarize their stories to me too? I know that Relena's mother and aunt were twins and Relena's mother was tutored by the original Heero Yuy....and Relena's and Milliardo's birth father's name was Matrix? @_@

5. The last bit of plot I heard was that Heero fought with Zechs and Relena told Heero to kill her. (wow, shocker =.=) Anything else that's happened?
