The super pilot/pirate made the rescue of his crying son so easy.

Legilis, from high speed molded parts.

As soon as I heard the Insert song, I said: It's been nice knowing you, Lu.

This seems to be the unwritten rule in AGE, any female character that gets any attention and development with the main character is doomed to die...

That Gundam has such an awesomely designed face. Reminds me of the GP02A from 0083. Can't wait to see it in action.

Reminds me a little of the AGE-2, with all that grey around its faceplate and chin.

EDIT: Youtube.

EDIT 2: Throughout the entirety of the episode I couldn't stop thinking about how big of an idiot Kio is. First he gives up vital information on one of the most powerful weapons ever to save a girl, then after that he risks screwing up an extremely risky operation to save him from enemy territory just to see her. Is he crazy?

Hope to see Asemu kick Zanald's butt next episode. That fat gorilla is annoying.

Thus Kio cries for the 2nd time. Except for the sketchbook, Kio X Lu happy moments somewhat reminded me of the last days of Yurin, especially with that yellow ribbon. Lu is indeed the start of the no-kill-policy. Makes you wonder if Ezelcant is rationing the "medicines" for military purposes.

If the vegans can trade for the Age Device's biometric key, the Bisidians can have the invisible umbrella and tap into vegan communications. Still, what happened to the grand home fleet displayed earlier, even accounting for the time skip? Captain Ash made the central infiltration and succeeding rescue seems like a cakewalk, even managing to secure the Age Device and the Orbital.

The whole vegan experience for Kio did turnout quite differently from the speculations, with most of the cast still missing. Thankfully, looks like a whole episode of Legilis and MS combat next week.

I think Asemu is gonna get his ass handed to him by Ezelcant. Legilis is all sorts of badass, and Ezelcant is probably a super x-rounder (can give Zeheart visions and communicate from Mars telepathically..)

Crazy for Lu.

I thought the visit to Second Moon has been rather lacking. Random thoughts:

- The weird cheerful feeling of Kio going anywhere and doing anything he is pleased...

- Now we know that Age Device is highly secured. It needs an Asuno. So what's up with Desil using it during Gen 1? Unless Flit upgraded it or something. Speaking of which, why does a brand new, independently built MS even need Age Device anyway?

- Lu is dead....like anyone's not seeing it coming.

- Super pirate and his bunch of misfits infiltrating and pulling off a rescue mission, right inside the enemy's F'KING HOME COLONY, not with genius plan or something, but with MS directly FLYING INTO THE COLONY AND RESCUE SAID PERSON. Are you f'king kidding me?

- There's no sense of excitement, danger or anything at all. These few episodes happen....just because it has to. No logic flow and no nothing.

- AGE has been lacking...especially these recent episodes....sigh

good episode that screams death flag the whole time. A turning point for Kio Asuno. And a badass gundam by the vagan.

Who is the pilot for that gundam?

The preview suggests it's Ser Ezelcant. No more aces nor pilots left in the vegan home-moon supposedly. No wonder Captain Ash just walked straight inside.

I guess they thought a blitz tactic would be the most efficient method. It would leave little time for the Vagans to respond in full force.

Now regarding Kio, he is a 13 year kid. He did not think of the consequences of such actions. He pretty much let his emotions get the better of him. But still, he truly repeated his Grandpa's failure to protect. However, he will now take Kira's no kill policy unlike Flit's kill them all.

Well...

1. The Kio x Ru part...too bad, there's just no way a happy ending would happen no matter what anyway.
2. Ru is Kio arc's Yurin, except, well, Yurin makes Flit went completely insane as to destroying Vagan, while Ru makes Kio becoming the 2nd coming of Kira
3. The character development is the good part. The bad part? Come on, it takes Captain Ash zero effort to get into the colony, went straight to the palace, get Kio out, take Gundam back...just WAY too easy...
4. Okay, not really, since the fun start next episode.
5. Speaking of rescue, if Flit is the one leading it, the whole colony would become space trash in no time...
