Well, not all the new gen watchers even know who Lalah is and Gundam has a history of shafting Cyber Newtypes whenever they can even if they redeem them right before their deaths. As for Lalah, she wasn't a Cyber Newtype but a Natural so maybe there's hope that Marida might not die but I have my doubts. Killing her may be used to put some extra angst on Banaghar than showing his humility by forgiving or something.

I personally expect Marida to die. Not only because of what past series have commonly done with cyber newtypes, but because there is always one or more main/lead supporting character(s) that seems to bite the dust in UC Gundam series and Marida seems like the most likely one.

Anyways I'm just shocked, but thrilled, she has lasted this long (though for sure this episode was her last for a while there). Maybe they'll surprise us with her living out this whole series.

Finally got the chance to watch it: didn't expect Irma's cameo. Great to see details like the Unicorn's deployable cleats. Slight nitpick would be the poor training of the Anksha and Rezel units. Terrific episode nonetheless.

The zero-g tea scene seems out of place but the sandwich making scene were priceless.

They could have at least spared a minute for a more focused fight scene with an Anksha.

I really feel you all are making an unfair and ridiculous comparison. The quality gap is enormous? It's pretty obvious, AGE is a tv-series, Unicorn is an OAV series with a motion picture budget each episode, gaps of 6 months to a year between episodes, as well as having the foundation of a light novel series that finished back in 2009 which itself seems to have been pretty well crafted.

I love Gundam Unicorn, but at the same time I feel that AGE is an impressive attempt. The problem is that by trying to condense 3 generations into a 50 or so episode series you come up with all the problems AGE is having right now. Unicorn has the luxury of telling a specific tale of a one month period that is part of a larger story line. It has an already rich canon of lore to draw off of, while AGE has to create it as it goes along.

When the Garancieres appeared out of the clouds, i god how i wish Gundam Unicorn would/could actually really be 3-D.
I think it's supposed to be a parallel from how they first met in episode 1, he even says the exact same line "i'll get us through this."

But i completely agree with the Audrey theme. Thanks for making me check if he did say the exact same thing, cause i got to watch the scene again haha!

Well, I can understand the Garuda's defense forces being not so good, but the General Revel forces were caught off guard by the Sleeves. Since this is the first episode of Angelo's new unit, you gotta show how badass it is, lol.

This was a great episode and the interaction between Banagher and Mineva was touching. It was nice to see some old faces in this episode such as Kai. I was hoping for the Jesta to do more in this episode, but their character's action on the ship was enough for me. The Banshee beat down on the Delta Plus was cool and it showed how menacing the Banshee was. I am not a fan of Riddhe, so I had a smirk from all the crap he was getting in this episode. I love the animation sequence of the Sinanju equipping the bazooka on its beam rifle. It was a fitting end for the episode.

yup, it's exactly a parallel of how they first met, but this time... they are no longer strangers to each other. and i think Audrey has learned to finally trust him

That's probably the acceptable explanation for the Rezels and the Jegans reaction to the Hamma Hamma's beams and even General Revil's missed shots.

is it just me... or was the BGM a little bit restrained in this episode?? I was actually expecting it too be explosive like in episode 4 where it was like track after track after track especially during the battle with Shamblo...

I finally had time to watch this episode.

Now Riddhe is becoming an anti-Gundam freak in charge of Banshee, I wonder how long would it take for that unit to absorb his soul and leave him catatonic.

Riddhe would get along well with Season 1 and Season 2 Graham.

Nah. Graham would reject Riddhe. Graham's desire to defeat the Gundams was to better himself as a MS pilot/warrior and revenge his fallen comrades. Riddhe's reason is because he got rejected by a girl who loves a pilot of a Gundam. Graham would Bright slap Riddhe saying there is no honor in that reason.

What exactly was he looking for in this shot?
Spoiler for image:

I thought the only other Dogosse class ship was destroyed?

The Sinanju OS can't identify the new Dogosse Gier-class derived General Revil based on the available database, displaying a partial match with the original Dogosse Gier. Which didn't even faze Full Frontal.

i just don't understand why Riddhe would hate Banagher just because Audrey chose to be with Banagher instead. I mean, it was retarded of him to bring Mineva in the care of his father, that was a delusional request.

His whole mental state has become disrupted/unstable, it's not just that. I guess there's a lot of material the anime skipped.
