That was a pretty epic battle and I was cheering for Izuru all the way. Damn he was badass.

I'm glad Angie was finally pushed aside because it was annoying to constantly see him/her one-uping the other members sometimes without even realising it.

But I did lol pretty hard when Izuru tried to find out Angie's gender and the team's reaction thereafter. It does matter God damn it.

I really hope the plot starts to pick up now because of this. It's been going ridiculously slow for a while now.

Oh, and congratulations to Izuru for finally becoming the next Amuro. Why? Because his mech can no longer keep up with Izuru’s insane ability, just like how RX-78-2 Gundam can no longer keep up with Amuro in MS Gundam. Not to mention that Izuru has his own Char/Casval in Jiart and his own Sayla/Artesia in Teoria. Also, like others have said, the "Izuru vs Jiart" in this ep must be one of the best mecha fights in decades. So far, only Unicorn's fluid & artistic 2D fights can hold a handle to MJP's fast & relentless 3DCG fights.

Agreed... and the only thing his pit crew needs is by either putting some magnetic coating, or replace it with a new ASHMB unit.

I don't know if I would go that far, Izuru is no Amuro, and while Jiart and Teoria have similar attributes, they're definitely no Char and Sayla.

I actually said in the beginning that all these guys are sort of generic versions of their Gundam counterparts, but never can really compare with the real things. They have begun to become a little more interesting as the show has gone on, but Amuro, Char, and Sayla are three of my favorite character in Gundam period, for a reason. They actually have real character. I can tell them apart from the many other Gundam protagonists, antagonists, and leading ladies. I can't quite do that yet with Izuru and the gang.

However, I do understand the comparison that you're making.

Well, my comparison was only in the surface. I made that comparison half-sarcastically to be honest. Of course I know that, character-wise, the trio of Izuru-Jiart-Teoria canít be compared with Amuro-Char-Sayla.

That was the first thing I thought of when I saw his mech sprouting "wings".

finally had time to watch the episode.

So now Tamaki has someone who is interested in her. good for her.

So looks like Izuru's hero complex does originate from his past with Teoria. My guess is that he left himself the manga he found as an attempt to keep that desire alive even if he lost all of his memories since it was so important to him.

That's really something if he managed to upgrade his unit and it STILL can't keep up with his skills. They're going to need to do a complete overhaul on it soon to make it more suitable for him. I do wonder if that is a permanent upgrade or just a burst type mode like what Jiart did.

I was under the impression Izuru's mech upgrade had to do with Theoria (wasn't she the one who gave the humans the tech?) knowing beforehand about his potential and giving Red 5 innate upgrades just in case he needs it. Because her estimates were off, though, the machine can't quite keep up with him.



I wonder what Izuru really is.... (what if he's really Jiart's clone?!)

Just throwing random ideas...

Mechas itself was development by humans alone (If what Rin said is truth), Lacus provided only Juria system to utilise it's full potencial.

You have it backwards.

The design behind the ASHMB was reverse-engineered from their technology. It was actually the JURIA-System that was original technology. They made it so the pilots could better control this new and unfamiliar technology. At least that's what I recall them having said in the briefing.

what Traece said. The mechas were based on Walguru technology given to the humans by Teoria but the Juria system was created by human technology specifically by a woman named Juria who we have yet to meet.

that is certainly an interesting idea and would make sense. Izuru was likely always intended to be a pilot even while he was still in school so it would make sense that a lot of it woul be built around his specs.

Spoiler for spoilers for a really old game?:


I thought Izuru's mech upgrade reminded me of Jiart's mech, by the way....

They hid a Freedom Gundam in there! About time.

It was a nicely choreographed battle and ticked all the boxes a Gundam fan is looking for.

The rest of the team better catch up; everyone's getting left behind!

(And I'm still waiting for the Ginga Majestic Prince Robo 6-man gattai. )

I like the part where Asagi and Suruga consider Izuru being weird for drawing good manga.

I think Asagi's was a lot funnier. So since Izuru's Harmonic levels are backed to normal, is his unit's personality that took over gone or dormant?
