Pretty entertaining episode, but I'm still waiting for plot armor for Kio to wear off to a degree.

Woobit sure got over his dislike and rivalry with Kio very quickly. I guess it's not something to devote a lot of screentime to.

Her action and the preview for episode 32 make it painfully obvious that Shanalua is the spy. I'm personally hoping for it to be blackmail though. I haven't seen enough of her pedophile/shotocon tendencies.

My god...it all fits. No way someone like Arisa gives up that easily. If she had to think outside the box to have a relationship with Asemu.....No wonder he vanished, Romary might have started getting suspicious . Do we have confirmation on where Arisa is currently ?

I can see it now

bridge bunny: "Mr Asuno, it's Cpt Natora! She shot Wootbit in the face and stole the AGE Core! she said she was a Vagan!
And she'd totally get away since it'd take at least 5 minutes for that revelation to sink into everyone's head .

You know someone on another forum made the argument that He's Ansemu's illegitimate child. That's why he's so mad at Kio...

"Run it past me again. She ran from the bridge to an MS. Without tripping? Without getting lost? Without falling down and crying? And then she piloted the MS? Are you sure it wasn't on autopilot? Remote control maybe?"

Would be funny if she's actually just texting her sister.

Kio opened the Shanlua route

G-Fortress is pretty sweet. Woodbit was a jerk, but at least he cooled down. Interesting that Unoa is on the ship. I can understand Wendy, but how do they let kids on the Diva though?

It makes sense. He's mad at Kio before he even sees him, I believe. He winces at the sound of the Asuno name and he forces himself into the G-Hopper, making up that excuse that he's doing it to protect Rody.

Why would be feel entitled to pilot a Gundam?

I believe he's just jealous at Kio, and thinking Kio only gets treated like that because he's Flit's grandson.

As soon as he saw how Kio's ability is, the guy chilled down.

Secret half brother trying to make friends with half brother? Like that's totally out of the question.

Besides, it's not like Arisa would badmouth Asem or Flit if Asem was his father. Would probably tell him what a great guy his father and grandfather were. He'd probably be really jealous but not hate them.

Let's see if he gets jealous if Flit compliments Kio...

I can't see anything like what you suggest, based on what they showed us in this ep, but if you believe it is, then fine.

Just don't be that guy who think the anime is suck because it's not what he wants it to be.

Doesn't mean he won't get jealous or overdo it when trying to win Kio and Flit's approval.

He might go all tsundere.

Nothing at the end of this ep that say he will though.

The fact that she's pretty secretive about herself seems to agree with that. Can see where her behaviour comes from. Doing what she is doing for her sister's sake so she can grow up in a healthier environment, but because its for her sister's sake she doesn't like seeing Kio fighting in this war. Fighting for a kid and seeing a kid having to fight.

Kio really has to be his grandfather's biggest fanboy . Really did need someone like Shanallua to teach him other ways of fighting. Flit is completely focused on bringing down the Vagans so probably only focused on how to destroy the opponent. Could easily get him killed if he couldn't absorb information from someone that wasn't Flit.
For the record Flit didn't teach Kio to charge in headstrong, seems more like something he got from his dad who was also the same. (Hell like the others Flit was wondering why Kio just charged in to shoot down the mothership rather than stay in formation and telling him not to just run in and go nuts like in this episode). On that matter though it took someone else (wolf and now her) to teach them that there's more to fighting than just charging in.

Doesn't make sense though, we know she's a spy but why would she give Kio tips on how to fight better? The Gundam is one of the Vagan's main and most dangerous enemies, it'd make sense to screw him over or something. Sure she's teaching him to better protect himself but that's still teaching him how to pilot and fight better. A soldier of a clear mind is a lot more dangerous than some guy who just goes "Bandai!" in an attack.

That fortress mode was insane. It's got maneuverability and firepower. It's almost unfair really. Though if it is pretty weak in close combat that will balance things out. At least this combination thing has some use. Now his friends and family can act as human shields while he combines . Still seems pretty reckless and really just having someone cover you might be just as effective. But long as it has some use I don't mind it as much.
THe Unicorn Gundam also has "units" designed to protect it when it's in Destroy and Unicorn mode, are they also human shields as well?

We call them escorts and so far the MS team has done a good job through the series providing covering fire for the Gundam whenever it's changing gear unlike other series where the Gundam changes gear and everyone just sits and gap. The AGE 3 does it best since with the combiner units while two are combining there's another unit that could provide covering fire for them.

We should open up a shipping club just because.

Don't forget it's her who shot down the missiles before it hit the G-Hopper. I think there is more to it than the usual spy.

Or all the spy thingy is how they troll us.

So... what is it?

She's a vagan?
Sister is kidnapped?
Sister is terminally ill on Earth but Vagans claim to have cure and will trade cure for intel?

That G-Fortress "Scorched Earth" attack Kio did was impressive and pretty OP

Also yeah, it seems pretty obvious that Shanalua is being blackmailed by the Vagans. Or at least something like -- they promised her they can cure her sibling if she gives them intel. Sorta like the situation in the show Terra Nova.

I don't think he's completely serious about that hypothesis. I know I'm not. Woodbit isn't slender and pretty enough to be that important.
