90s, actually. This 3rd part is homage to the 90s.
And it shows. The style of animation, conflicts, enemy mechs... they do a great job in reminding us of the past decade.

There are no specific english term that's used in the same context, as far as I know.
Your description is fine, I think.

sigh... if you talk about 90s.. I always think of this thing... lol its by Sunrise, may be it doesn't count.

Its 1993.. miss it so much, can't find a place to buy it now too

and well the most famous title during the 90s is Eva (1995) no doubt.

If you stick to the robot shows, anime that crosses my mind first when thinking about 90s are Eva, Nadesico, Yuusha series, and Gundam W.

Oh yeah, I definitely agree with aohige. Those are the robot shows that come to mind... and of course Magic Knight Rayearth, Escaflowne and Ryuu Knight... but erm let's put those medieval type mechas aside.

That was pretty obviously just a homage to him.

Very awesome episode. It finally feels like the show has gotten some storyline to it. The last 15 episodes have been pure adrenaline and while not bad, it kind of leaves an empty feeling after watching it.

Lots of neat things about this ep.

Anyone else think that with all the GM-ed Grapals the GL has lost its uniqueness?

Watched the episode and i have to say..........NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOO Nia

This episode gives me some eva vibe to it. I guess its because the weird unknown blocked shaped alien reminded of angels. Also, Rossiu is such a jerk right now. He reminds me of Gendou(dont ask me why ). I haven't lost all my hope on Nia yet because there's always the POWER OF LOVE!(and courage).

Oh yea, one more thing after watching the preview....

off topic: Heh, I remember that show. I used to have the figure for the basball and soccer dude xD The mecha show i miss the most is Wataru(dont know how to spell the full name)

Not really. Doesn't look like the Engineering crew could duplicate the Spiral Power - the Grapals seem to be just updated versions of Gunmen.

So fellow posters... your opinion on whenever Nia's take over orchestrated by an invasion or if it came from something within herself? I'm leaning more towards the second option myself due to the fact it seemed like if the moon was calling for her rather than taking over her, as if trying to reach her subconscious. Not to mention the small shining point from within her eyes as she saw the moon above her head in the sky.

Nia's take over looks like it was an invasion from outside to me. It feels like there's another being / whatever on the moon as shown by the moon closeup. The rocket mission would probably reveal something soon too. I am half expecting a longinus spear, lawl XD

Why is it that the eyecatch shows Simon and Daryl instead of Simon and Nia? 0-O;; is this some kind of foreshadowing or just pure fanservice? o=

Loved this episode. Wasnt expecting the feel change, and I think it lost something from the previous 15 (Simon vs the cg mecha scene doesnt even have bgm! But overall the show is still a really good one. I do have problems with the cg enemy but it's not that bad, it goes well with the explosion thingie happening at the end. If it's trying to reference eva then it should've been animated instead tho, imo =x It think looks more like Vandread instead though. What year was vandread again?

Oh and Gimmy-Darry's plugsuits are colored like the ones from stellvia. then again plugsuits mostly looks similar anyway =b
