As much as I'm enjoying the series I think I'm going to stop watching it soon. If the story is going to continue in the direction its headed, with CE always shown as being powerful and coming out on top. It's just no fun in the end. I keep hoping and waiting for the other factions to score a victory but just don't see it happening.

If wouldn't be much of a problem if the Gundam team and their mission were fun to watch and/or likeable. As it stands now I don't care about them at all. The Union, AEL, and HRL are a LOT more enjoyable to watch. CE's mission paints them as the bad guys and no matter how cool the Gundams happen to look I can not bring myself to cheer them on or even even be excited when they are in action unless they are up against one of the other three faction's ace pilots. It's been 12 episodes (well 13 but haven't watched the latest on yet). They've had more then enough time to show how powerful CE is. Get on with the plot already. If you are going to have the focus on a team, at least make them likeable and have a mission that doesn't possible turn the viewer's stomach.

Not sure if anyone is feeling this way.

OMG yay, new music by the brilliant green!

Although Daybreak's Bell sounded cooler, I do like this song as well. And I'll take a lesser opening theme if it means the end of that sock wearing poser Tommy Heavenly6, and more TBG.

I've been reading your ideas. The show hints at the current Gundam meisters being nothing more than pawns being used by an elite organization/secret brotherhood of geniuses.

The Crossroad girl was investigating CB and found out that very intelligent people have been disappearing during the last few centuries. CB seems to be an elitists brotherhood of geniuses that may want to destroy the world and recreate it as they want it.

The current Gundam meisters have modest beginnings. . . at least 3 of them. The CB leadership may see them as disposable pawns. Allelujah is a failed super solder and psycho, he was considered a piece of trash by his creators. Setsuna was just some third world child soldier. Lockon was some working class Irish kid caught in the IRA crossfire.

Seeing as 3 new pilots are being introduced. . .it could be that the Gundam meisters are targetted for disposal. . . they've served their purpose and must die.

I'm still waiting for that big twist, no matter what it is. . . it should be good.

im not fond of the direction its taking with the new pilots as too the current ones, wouldnt that put alot of people on the back burner? It would make it less of a story with all the characters already in it with us knowing so little about most their pasts. I dunno, maybe its just me and maybe i'll change my mind once it happens. It just seem like its going to get cluttered in a hurry and things get lost.

It's either episode 11 or 12. Saji's sister is investigating the origins of Celestial being. She finds out that the Union or E.U is basically investigating the same thing. She arrives at some apartment building or hotel room where some guy who is a descdendent of some long lost genius is residing.

During one of the scenes, she explains what she has found over the phone, I think. She's discovered that hundreds of scientists, many leaders in their fields of expertise, have disappeared without a trace since Aeolia Schenberg disappeared. . . which I think is the last 200 years. This hints at a secret brotherhood established by Aeolia that recruits the finest scientific minds that are sympathetic to the goals of the organization. This would explain Celestial Beings technological superiority. We know they have a space colony. What kind of advantage would a somewhat isolated space colony full of geniuses and reinforced with new geniuses on a regular basis have? The whole idea of this organization trying to destroy the world comes from what usually occurs when we see a secret brotherhood and an extremely advanced A.I. thinking they know what's best.

The old man working for the Union with Graham seemed to act like had some inside info on Schenberg. I wonder if he is one of his descendents and may know something the public doesn't know about Schenberg.



After watching episode 13. . . what's up with Ali Al Sarshes? He goes from a muslim extremist to a hard drinking wordly mercenary? He betrays PMC trust, it seems. He seems to be getting logistical support from someone or something. He's into the wanton violence a bit too much.


I could be wrong, maybe CB won't split up and really isn't as bad as I think. What if there was a schism within CB and a faction broke off. . . lets says. . . 100 years ago. What if Ali Al Sarshes works for them?


This show needs a worthy antagonist ASAP. Nothing like a hero robot with tons of battle damage.

Ep15 - Broken Wing

The meisters are locked in a fierce battle against almost a thousand mobile suits. In reality, the military exercise is a trap to attempt to capture all four Gundams. As the overwhelming odds stack against their favor the Gundams fine themselves cornered.
A thousand?? ..Thats a lot!..And kind of unrealistic.
hemmm..I think Kira will finally make his appearance and most likely hijack the show.

LOL It's like the game Bioshock but without the great story. "Would you kindly use the Gundams to end all wars."

Depends, are you referring to the 1st opening song or the new one? The first OP was done by L' Arc En Ciel and the new OP is going to be done by the brilliant green.

Because of that, I really can't wait to see her appearance. Can't imagine how she will sound when she fights.

The song seems more suited for Bleach than Gundam.
