It may be the FX. The Orbital engaged against Ghiraga's X-mode, so the logical upgrade path is to create a newer frame

AGE 3 got captured so probably no data for upgrades, for now

Am I the only one who approve of Kio punching the Vagan while it's going to fire its cannon, even though he failed? It was too late for Kio to dodge or pull out a beam saber, and punching the cannon, if timed correctly, can cause the cannon itself to overload and destroy the enemy MS. I thought it was a correct action, albeit quite a desperate one.

I can't imagine they'll have a ton of time for repairs while on the run. But of course the AGE Gundams have shown a knack for quickly dumping busted parts in a hurry. Too bad for Flit he actually took damage in an area that they can't quickly abandon unless it's a whole new mode. Though do wonder if they don't just have some of the AGE-1 other forms sitting around in storage that he could use.

The punching the cannon might have gone well, but really I just read it as a continuation of his unstable fighting. Think the stuff with Asemu, his grandfather telling him to forget about him, fighting multiple strong opponents, and Flit being in danger just completely pushed him over the limit. Way younger than any of the other leads to this point and even they didn't handle stress great at times. But yeah it could have worked, but if he didn't rush in so recklessly from the start he wouldn't have been in a position of having to try something like that.

The Zamdrag is definitely my favorite AGE mobile suit yet.

Strangely enough, I find the staring contest between Flit and Asem to be much better icebreaker than the kids. I actually laugh at the former after a seemingly tense situation where Flit really lets his opinion of Asem be known.

I didn't have any issues with this episode because I am willing to overlook how Kio got captured. Could they have done it better? Sure, but it still gets the story moving forward. My issue will most likely be how they'll develop him in the future. Everything points to him meeting some Vagan kids, possible orphans, and then Im sure they're gonna make him befriend them, causing him to hesitate and not pull the trigger later and cause someone's death *cough* Seric *cough*. It's all too predictable.

I think it was less about Asemu requiring Flit's permission to go after Kio and rather that it was more about Asemu requiring Flit's permission to go after Kio without the Diva trying to shoot him down along the way.

The Diva is in no condition to stop Asem, though.

Well, someone has to die... I guess. Might as well be the guy that's close to getting with a cute woman. Isn't that how it usually ends up being in Gundam?

think it was more of respect.

Re-watching some scenes.. Flit seems a bit reasonable?

-He's mad at Asemu for basically leaving his family to play Pirate, He doesnt know the reason and Asemu wont tell. Im sure we have a Father and son moment with Kio and Asemu in which we find out the reason. I imagine Flit hated the fact that he wasnt always there for his kids, and it struck him hard to find out that Asemu was alive for 13 years, and not saying one word to his family. Flit had the Age System, and Kio to pilot the gundam, So Asemu isnt needed. I take it Flit Cares about Asemu, and wanted him to be the better father figure then he was.

Flit basically was the father figure for Kio, and had the chance to become the father that he never was with his two kids. Flit must loathed the past of him working all the time, and never spending time with his two kids. Reasons behind the whole disowning Asemu is simply the fact that Asemu HAD the chance to be the father figure in Kio's Life, but played Pirate instead.

Flit see's Kio as the True Savior, Flit and Asemu Failed to do so in flit's mind.

4 am time for sleep.

Spoiler for lol:

well considering how the way the Age-3 was kidnapped by the Zomudoragu which looked like an innuendos to some people, i bet somebody will make an ero mechamusume out of that scene, along with the Zomudoragu also getting musume-ed aswell , thank god that the mars rays & the Mussel combined didn't fully affected the Vegans's brains to the point they mistook Kio as a loli then gave him a frilly short skirt sailor fuku while in jail, at cost of being given hobo wear instead.....

what makes me question is whether Flit's love is actually for his grandson or the freaking Age system/Age-3

9/10 cause I love character development poor Kio and I knew Captain Assemu was going to be the one to rescue him since Flit's Gundam and the Diva can't go after him.

... WTH did Asemu need the spare parts for? I could see him asking for detailed sensor records, but parts?

Flit was the one who told him to take the spare parts. And chances are he's not having him take the AGE-2's spare parts, but the AGE-3's spare parts, to repair it on the fly if they successfully rescue Kio and the Gundam.

They might hand those over to Bisidian as well; the original AGE-2 was destroyed so they really don't have any use for them. But honestly I think Flit was referring more to the AGE-3's parts, including the G-Cepter and G-Hopper. Those will be needed if Kio escapes, as the G-Viper is damaged from the battle against the Ghirarga and the Zamdrag.

Are we to beleive that Asemu is going to waltz into the Vagan territory with ONE ship and rescue Kio? First he has to get to the colony undetected, which is highly unlikely, so he'd have to fight through the Vagan defense forces, which I would assume will be numerous. Then there's the issue of actually finding Kio, they have no idea where he is, and Asemu doesn't have X-Rounder skills to "sense" his location...

You simply do not mount a rescue mission into the heart of the enemy's territory with your eyes blindfoled, which is what Asemu and his pirates are going to do. The only way thsi would make sense is if he has inside help, some inside Vagan who can give him intel and help him out. The question would then be, who?
