Kio: most conservative out of the three, as contact with the Vagans left a lasting impression on him. wouldn't even lay a finger on the Vagans even if that means sacrificing himself (I think)

Asemu: the political realist, understands that there's no way to stop the fighting unless one side is completely exterminated (barring the nonsense Kio is about to conjur), so aims to maintain the status quo which is basically the best you can bargain for in times of war.

If I was a voter (a rational one), I guess I would go for Asemu. But the downside is that preserving the status quo means giving up every opportunity to negotiate or fight for an end to the war. Atrocities would continue to inflict both sides, deepening their hatred for each other, kept apart only by the pirates' intervention. Surely a time would come when such ill-feelings can't be contained any longer..
but in our world, the ones on the right spectrum favor war or have known to start wars. so wouldnt be flit on the right and kio on the left?

Maybe she was convinced by the vegans using a bag of gold coins too, after getting tired of waiting for the Age-1 since episode 33.

Kidding aside, the conference scene did acknowledge that the original order for the Diva was to go to the moon and possibly hinting that the lunar commander "Aaron Simmons" was already on the vegan side (the lunar purge did fail) at that time.

That's a political myth. Even in the USA democrats have started more wars than republicans have.

In other parts of the world, the left are outright more hawkish than the right. This is due to the fact that in general war is bad for business and so the right like to stay the heck out of them.

But in any case I don't think they actually fit into any political spectrum in general.

I like how the 3 generations' idea are clashing with each other. Wonder how it will play out at the end.

This episode only redeeming points for me is the reunion.

Flit is still stuck up that Vagan killed Yuurin and his parents. Revenge revenge revenge.
I'm not surprised if he is training Kio to become a super x rounder pilot since he was young.

Asemu's way looks good but its not. Its prolonging the war. It means more death and that is bad. It's either ending it now or never.

Kio looks stupid to me. He tries to become Kira god Yamato with his new gundam. His gundam looks like gn blades equipped in the funnel. And this should be the right debut for G 00 quanta and instead the only good thing that gundam do is go for telecommunication and to deus ex warp stuff. I still prefer Strike Freedom than Age FX. Even the meaning of FX looks lame to me. Good thing they don't use it. FX is good enough. This gundam is lacking fire power and depends too much on the C funnel. If someone shoots those down then that's it. This is different from the cluster of energy which was released by vagan. Even if you shot those down. You can just do it again.

I still favor Age 2 with its armaments which I forgot the name. That is still the coolest gundam for me on Age series.

After reading the info about the FX from recent magazine scans, I wouldn't say that if I were you...

It died. Woolf didn't save it, the kid gave him some pendant. I don't think it was ever adressed after that.

Romary in Kio Arc definitely looks older than Emily in Asemu arc, with Yunoa as the other extreme. And surprisingly, they kept HanaKana as Romary's voice.

Well, this 3-sided view between the 3 generations is definitely a unique thing in a Gundam series, though it's not an excuse for the scriptwriter to not get fired.

I bet this will go down the path of understanding between the 2 sides after a reconciliation between the 3 Asunos (at least before any of them dies if any will).

it's a G-Bouncer variant, you can tell from thelegs/skirt armor/head/chest it does have a new shield variant though, it's Girard Spriggan's MS

so is it okay to say that

Flit = Avenger ( Avenging all the things that Vagan had done to him/ the earth)
Asemu = Protector ( still protecting all the things that is precious to him. He actually obeyed what Flit told him when he was young to protect everything)
Kio = Saviour ( He wants to stop the fighting and save everyone.)

Age Fx is cool. It's fight scenes are so cool age-fx's showing makes me think that AGE-3 is just a custom unit haha

and looks like will be getting a Asemu vs Zeheart round 2 and Age-1 vs Farcia round 2

OP is also good especially with the final image showing all 3 leads. With the Age-1 upgrade I hope that Age-2 dark hound will get an upgrade too, even just it's hand held weapon. DODS lancer is so weak.

I realized the reason why Kio sucks as of this moment is because unlike flit and asemu, he doesn't have a badass ally named woolf!

Flit = (Stuck in the) Past

Kio = (Securing a) Future

yah that's a good way to describe them too.

and on a side note that i forgot to mention on my post

it's cute when kio told that it's been 3 months already and then asemu enters and tells them in the same manner that it's been 13 years already haha

and romary tsk tsk, after 13 years in the anime and several episodes in real life, her dialogue remains the same ... " Asemu" Can the scriptwriter at least give her longer lines?XD

If Flit keeps pushing his genocide agenda he might end up getting shot in the back by Natora or that fat guy in the bridge...

Figures he'd convince Algreus to let him hold the button...I suppose he wants to make sure nobody's going to chicken out at the last minute and not fire it.

Anyway, seems like Ezelcant is pretty much down at this point, so his clone is going to take over..question is, whose clone is it? Ezelcant, Romy, Kio or perhaps a clone of ....Woolf?

I'm looking forward to next episode because it points to being Fram-centered...it's about time she got some loving. This one all she got was 1 measely line....

I'm surprised Flit wasn't having a coronary over Kio not slaughtering the Vagan pilots. But he was probably too busy watching the overall battle rather than watching Kio alone. Otherwise he'd be screaming at Kio from the bridge......
