From my understanding, the bodies of the Fog Ships AI are constructed of the same stuff their main battleship forms are made up of (nanomaterial). So, Haruna's performance is NOT surprising, since she essentially is a human-scale battleship.

I really enjoy the little conversation between random characters at the end of the chapters. 400 and 402 are pretty amusing.

That was true in theory, but until this chapter they only showed the ability to link up with the shared Fogship database and create mini clones (and obviously control their battleship self), they were mostly running around acting more or less human. This chapter showed that even with their battleship destroyed they have much greater then human combat ability.

Additional thought, since the AIs are made of nanomachines why didn't Haruna just create a new trenchcoat back in chapter 18 instead of crying about it?

The trenchcoat? The same reason why Haruna's apparent default outfit without that trench coat is... sexy lingerie. For comedic/character purposes.

Well it's an example of why the AIs did not appear to have significantly more then human abilities while limited to human form, she couldn't get her coat back. Obviously that was inaccurate, but it was how she had been portrayed earlier.

Anyways, there was a lot of information presented in this chapter about Makie, I'm predicting her storyline will involve the other 6 design children. She's probably going to meet one in the northern region and the information that only 7 survived seemed to have a purpose.

That's because without her coat she loses substantial power! The manga had a note saying she loses 100% power and processing without it.

She loses strength and processing power, but isn't that all mental? The coat itself seems to just be full of pockets for snacks, accessories and momentos there didn't appear to be anything really special about it unless the "bundle of mystery!!" is the secret to her power. Most of the things on the graphic just seemed to be random fun like the Haruna eye seeing through your clothes or the too many pockets comment so it seemed like the mystery item would be similarly goofy.

For mere curiosity, can somebody post a list of battleship and submarine classes so we can kind of understand the characters.

Except for Iona all the ships appear to be named after WWII ships so these lists should have the info you're looking for. I don't know if it will give any insight into the characters, but it gives a sense of scale of the different ships.

re Haruna: Yeah, the trenchcoat thing seems to be a character gag, much like Hyuuga's Iona-con tendencies or Takao's habit of going into her messed-up 'simulation mode'.

On a separate note... I noticed that people commented on Yamato having multiple AI bodies, but I have wonder about that (one body seems different, and not in the same way Nagato's twin bodies were different), especially after the other chapter's revelation. Something is up, and I'm sure it's not the last we'll hear of Gunzo's childhood 'golden girl'.

We're also getting a 60 page manga about what happened to Takao when she lived among humans for a week between chapters 5 and 9.

I'm looking forward to that.

About chapter 26, at least we're almost to the next fight. I really want to see Zordan lose this rematch.

Hmm while I am a big fan of Jun Fukuyama, he is in almost everything atm, which for the most part is ok but I didn't imagine his voice for Gunzou. Kinda imagined something a little different but not to say it's abd or anything.

And also didn't quite imagine Rina Satou as Takao either but I think she can make it work.

If we ever do get a anime, I think I'd be fine with this VA cast.

Lookiing forwad to that Takao special

Anyway, can't wait to check that new chapter out.
