So after 2 actually 3 if we include this, we finally get some action back. The final scene of this episode was kinda cool too. I actually thought that Akihiro & Takaki got the death flag treatment for a moment.

The teasing about Orga's thoughts for women made me lol a bit this episode. Who knows though? Maybe he'll grow to like Merribit in a way later.

Interesting to see the background story about Akihiro and Atra this episode. I wonder if we will see more of these flashbacks with some of the other prominent Tekkadan members. Action starting to pick up again~

Oh I forgot, Atra's imagination is priceless!

Nice episode and all with some good interactions...but really? Another talking or "character development" episode? That is like 3 in a row now. I was expecting some actions and it was all a red herring as the actual combat (if you can call that) was all 1 minute. The battle next episode better be worth it, and no 2 or 3 talking episodes between battle episodes. Is the series running low budget or what

Oh and Akihiro's brother surely will be an enemy pilot, or even the pilot of Gundam Gusion. Looks like Brewers is a group who use human debris as pilot? Time to brainwash them and obtain Gundam Gusion while they are at it too

Atra, your imagination is gonna ruin you someday like that. Granted, it's a very interesting and hilarious imagination

Getting background on Akihiro and Atra makes for nice bits of characterization, though likewise I'm also getting a feeling that Akihiro's brother Masahiro is gonna play some role in the future, perhaps even next episode.

Mikazuki performing yet another dynamic entrance to save the day at the end, I imagine the next episode will shed light on how he got there so fast, likely through the use of the Kutan booster.

- No, he did not do a Kira. There was no beamspamming in that episode. :P

Although I gotta admit, way to show how Barbatos would use a sword as opposed to a mace. Lot more precise.

To be more precise, he just pulled a "Freedom-save" which is popularized by Kira (beam or no beam) .

Yay we finally got some action!

Well, it would be nice if it came 10 minutes sooner no matter how great tsundere Orga makes. Just hope Akihiro and his brother will not end killing each other.

And yeah Atra go for it. If you do it well you have chance!

Oh yeah, forgot to add my impression of the episode:

Another good character-exploration episode. And it’s a nice timing to delve directly into characters’ pasts during a calm journey. Talk about past, Akihiro’s past is a bit too elaborate to be waved as a one-off issue. His little brother will surely come back to him in some capacity to provide him with a new interpersonal conflict now that his issue with “slavery” is practically solved. It’s nice that Kudelia finally (kinda) being accepted as a family considering her ironic situation where she can’t even trust her parents to keep her alive but able to find sanctuary among orphaned kids and Fumitan (for now). Orga’s reluctance to Merribit’s presence is cute. I’m not a shipper, so I don’t ship them (or anybody for that matter) but I like to see where their “relationship” will develop from here on out especially considering the previous episode blatantly stated that there's a mole working for Gjallarhorn to get Tekkadan (the suspicion is now a tie between Fumi & Meri).

Some little notes:
  • The kids sure know some good stuff. They're already debating which one is sexier, Fumi or Meri. Those little rascals are definitely not innocent kids.
  • Mika has no problem expressing what he feels. When he’s lonely, he’ll just say it outright. If he want to kill a man, he just do it (poor Gaelio’s neck). Now I’m wondering what he’ll do if he want to have sex . On second thought......forget I ever said that
  • The debut of the Katana!!! It’s good watching a Gundam with a physical katana-like sword. I wonder when’s the last time I watched Gundam wielding a katana....probably during Gundam Astray’s animated short and GBF (if you want to count that).
  • And those who said that Mika doesn’t deserve Atra’s attention (mostly Youtubers), that’s why I said not to jump to conclusions before all is said and done. Look at this episode. Atra owes her job (and her life, to an extend) to Mika. That's definitely a good start to get a girl's attention.
  • Speaking of Atra’s past, child prostitution just made real this episode . Thanks to Atra’s loli appearance, her cherry isn’t popped by a random perverted old man with a cash (so far).
  • Those green MSs at the end reminds me of FMP's Savages due to their frog-like appearance.
  • Oh, and nice to meet you, Chad .

Make it happen



Wow, alot less action than I expected this episode

...Were those brats really talking about who was sexier? Ok these kids are normal. Or at the very least the presence of the ladies is really starting to change things

So we dumped Mika this episode for other characters to get some more fleshing out, goodie

Atra's and Akihiro's backstory.....awwwwwww ;_;




Soooo any bets Gundam Gusion's pilot will be Akihiro's brother? I see 1 or two above whos already thinking the same. Hope so, so we either get a tragic scene or a new Gundam joining the crew




Last of all, the enemy pirate captain is a SUPPPAAAHHH PPIRRATTTOOOOOOOOOO

.......just kidding.....I hope


But at least we are getting Gundam Gusion

Subconsciously she must have remembered Amida about sharing meat.

Atra wants Mika for herself but she also ships Mika and Kudelia so she goes for the Sanpi solution. Atra you aren't even sure Kudelia is in love with Mika...


The guy who tagged along with Akihiro is waving death flags but Mika stopped it. Akihiro's bro is either with space pirates or he is Ein.

Orga is on guard with the new chick. Good.

Fumitan could go either way.

@Skye629: How about some spoiler tags for the pictures? (because of the size).

Otherwise: It was a pretty good episode. And the backstory of Atra and Akihiro is pretty sad.

Interestingly enough Atra's vision reflects well the kind of influences she received about relationships.
As for Atra working in a bordello yet never as a prostitute that's way too lucky to be that simple. Degenerate scum exist but either the house she worked in had standards or that somebody explicitly protected her. Given how hostile the rest were her protector possibly died or otherwise were gone by the time of the flashback so perhaps there's more to her story than we're allowed to peek in.
Of course this assumes the writers actually thought things this far which is not always given.

And Mikazuki doesn't deserve to be loved by her, wut?
Since when relationships are something we truly earn? Most of the time it's something far more simpler than that. You may fight for love or to earn somebody's respect but generally connections are made naturally by interacting with each other.

Nah, Ein's eyebrows aren't thick enough to be space-Guts' (Akihiro's) little-bro.

Spoiler tag is not enough. We need "image"-tag like this:

so that the page will load better.

@Skye, do your homework by quoting my post, copy the tag, and use it on your pics! or I will steal your Destiny Gundam Heine Color!

Nice episode. The other characters had been fleshed out and character developments are present for other minor characters. I liked it that they gave time for them too develop too. Especially Akihiko though why do I feel death flags for him. I already thought that he would die by the end of the episode by Mika saves the day.

what makes Atra's imagination funnier is Mika's eyes along with his babies had to be drawn derpy as hell, also the rest of the cast including Tekkadan & Biscuit's family isn't even in it.
