We're getting off-topic here. Anyway, I think the episode is much better than the first episode. However, there are still some problems with the episode mainly with the battles between the Gundams and grunts, and talks between the Gundam pilots but hopefully fixed in the DVD version. It was interesting to see political views and a zero-sum game among the three factions.
I wouldn't mind seeing another mecha trying to damage Exia as it is the target. That Haro reminds me of R2-D2 in terms of functionality and purpose.

Well, I won't say anything more (off-topic police will get me).
Yeah, you're right. However I think it was pointed out somewhere that transphase armor and the Geschmeidig Panzer on the shell thing cannot work in conjunction, so one has to turn on while the other's off. So its still not all purpose... But in terms of defense I guess the only thing its susceptible to is the anti-ship sword (which uses both energy and physical force to cut something).

The voice reminds me of the UC Haro, but this one talks and repeats itself waaaay too much for its own good...

And IMO the stuff pink-chan and Mr. Red say are actually pretty funny... This orange POS is simply annoying.

I agree they are similar. This orange one talks stupid nonesense like "hatch open". Like I don't have eyes or Lockon don't have eyes, we can't see the frickin hatch is opening. OH gawd..I have to deal with this crap for another 50 or so episodes..
Btw..Fighto fighto or akande repeated a few hundred times isn't funny at all if you ask me

Now that I watch ep. 02 again, you're right about this Haro being awfully annoying compared to SEED and Destiny Haros. This series has much more potential than SEED and Destiny, but I hope it doesn't go to a downward after ep. 26 finishes and then break time for the series.

I don't really mind the orange Haro, the way he repeats thing over and over doesn't really bother me.

Since we are on the topic of the Haro...

I don't mind the Haro, but I find it some what "anti-climactic" (if that term is applicable), to have the oldest of the four "Gundam Miesters" using it. It's purpose seems very logical and so forth, but at the same time it would have been wickedly sick if they had some kinda super AI replacing the Haro.

I think that it takes away from the character himself, making them seem not serious, or I don't know what the right way of saying it is, but it doesn't suit my taste at all. Hopefully they'll have some kinda scenario that involves him giving it to someone else.

I guess it goes without saying that Lockon Stratos is the unofficial mission leader(?). I also find it interesting how some of the characters and their Gundams have interconnected names, or complimentary if you want to use a better definition.

Out of all of the nations the HRA appears to have the most versatile/varianted mobile Suit.

From the previews for next episode, it'll be interesting to see the high mobility Tieren compete against the Exia.

Uhh..HRA has Tieren and Tieren space type only. most versatile? Union/AEU's suit prolly beats Tieren in terms of mobility.

Tieren's kana does translate into chinese. It reads "Iron man"

These things are confusing. They keep going HRE, HRA, and HRL. Maybe I'll jus stick with HRL. Subbers are driving me nuts and I read something about it's changed or something.

Clearly you didn't see the High Mobility Type Tieren which is clearly giving Exia a good fight.

When I meant versatile I meant it similar to SEED's GINN which has many variants.

MSJ-06II-A Tieren Ground Type
MSJ-06II-C Tieren High Mobility Type
MSJ-06II-E Tieren Space Type
MSJ-06II-LC Tieren Long Range Shooting Type

I only see it grabbing Exia's head and stuff, how exia ended up there remains to be seen.

Alright your confusing me.

You argued that there are only two Tieren types despite the fact that up to now we've seen 4 types. that makes it pretty versatile. A ground pounding heavily armored unit that can go from short to long range combat with various weapons, a long ranged artillery unit, a fast attack type, and a space type.

And in regards to the Exia fighting the high mobility type, I'd think the grunt's doing something decent if he can get up that close and grab it's head and engage it with its combat blade.

I thought the Flag , or whatever its called, with the spinning blade as a shield was quite interesting. I think it even blocked Kyrios' beam shots in the OP.

But I wonder how that kind of shield can repel a close-range weapon like a sword.
