It's funny how Millais looks younger than Emily, even though she's got a good 10 years on her. Glad to see FlitxEmily confirmed (take that, Yurin)
Now who did Dique procreate with, if Alisa really is his kid? Must've been some bombshell... although I'm not to keep on her having his hair, it's a constant reminder *shudder*
Have to agree, the feddie characters don't look their age, but it might look better animated. The rest of the cast looks a lot better than the previous generation though, especially in direct comparison. The colors are also more toned down/matching (no more bright yellow and turquoise, yay), so it looks a lot more like it wants to be taken seriously.

The school bit could either be really fun or really terrible, so I'm a bit less excited about the story reveal for now.
So, I'm curious to find out if Asem's in a regular school club about Mobile suits. As in, they fangirl over military weaponry they've never touched before, while sitting firmly in a classroom and eating poptarts and ice cream? Or if it's some kind of serious business? Well, judging by his sidekicks and his "longing for mobile suits", it's the former

Seriously liking the look of Gen 2, they've clearly made an effort here. If the story improves equally, I'm quite happy
Maybe the three healing pods of Diva contributed something to this. They had the technology.

Asem's immediate circle reminds me of Kira's engineering club in Seed. Romary as a school idol? Fllay.

A long shot, but Arisa's hair tie could be Yurin's. Dique had beaten Flit by a year.

Ooh, healing pods, that could well be possible.

I thought about the engineering club as well when I saw his friends.

Romary doesn't strike me as much of a Fllay unfortunately, no way she could pull it off. She could try a Louise, but there just might not be the time to flesh out either scenario in the end.
I'm guessing she's just Emily 2.0, she won't do much and then have Asem's babies...

edit: OH CHRIST about your theory for Dique :O Poor Yurin

For some reason, i got the feeling Emily got addicted to the Cold sleep plastic surgery, so Captain Millias decided to ban her from the Diva.

There is our reason for Emily looking older than the 2nd gen captain.

i'm Sherlock Holmes.

I'm just betting on Milais using the pods while Emily just aged normally.

Goddamn, Yurin does not escape the Newtype girl fate that happens in every single Gundam series....

39 year old Flit looks like he is 65.

It's like Chap Adel is supposed to be 25 in 0083 when he is clearly in his 40's. Gundam sure has an interesting way to show people's age.

here's a interesting idea. She survives but is horribly injured and is put in one of those pods to heal but it would take a long time to do so with the extent of her injuries so she ends up waking up in Kio's generation and ends up as his love interest.

Ya know what I find funny about the pilot suit complaints? Is that people hated the fact the suit looked like something from Megaman.

But no one hates how Megaman looks.

How's that funny? Megaman is a video game character from the days when video game character designs were judged on the how good they look being displayed as a handful of pixels and not how goofy they look when applied to other applications.

I don't hate how Super Mario looks either, but if Flit were wearing a red hat, red shirt and blue overalls and wears a giant mustache I'd most likely would hate that look too. He's a Gundam pilot, not a cartoon robot and certainly not a high jumping fat Italian plumber.

Probably because Mega-Man's look is a remnant of the past, retro as its called, and is filled with nostalgia. Just look at the modern incarnations of Mega-Man, and at what Zero looks like, considerably more modern and mainstream and "cool". The old Mega-Man or even Mega-Man Volnut at this point look very much their age when put side to side with Zero or the Net version of Mega-Man or Bass, and the sort. Unfortunately for AGE and Flit, he has no nostalgia to ride on and just looks silly in the eyes of many with his Mega-Man space suit.

Frankly, though, I go by practicality and for this series... that's probably one of the more practical designs.

It's all in context; in this case a lead Gundam pilot suit. Here's a helpful illustration...

It's funny to me because someone is hating something for having a similar look to something else that is pretty popular and well liked by lots of people (the hater being one of them).

It'd be like me (a lover of the GM type designs) hating the Genoace because it looks like a GM, when I infact love the GM design.

Even with seeing all the other pilot suits, I still think Flit's looks just fine. I never understood the dislike for it. It's a pilot suit, gets the job done to me.

Because I think it's ugly. It's only similar to Megaman, and being similar something nice doesn't mean it will look nice.
