To see the ED search "Gundam 00 OP" and arrange by date added.

All up to interpretation, my good man.

Found the High Res. Version. Loading...

The Setsuna-intruding-royal-quarters thing got me thinking. Do they really even care about Marina? Sure that she's pretty much just the figurehead, but there's is a minimum of security level that you have to maintain. So far, security is abysmal. They should have at least detected Exia. And it can't be that the people trusts CB enough to just let them barge into Her Highness royal quarters.

The writer confuses me.

I wonder how long this little alliance between the world powers will last. I can't help but ponder, Will CB become the villians soon? The only wild card is Ali Al Sarshes, and i just have a bad feeling that he will become a part of Celestial Being, but that is just my silly prediction.

The blonde haired Guy, Joshua I think. Will be a thorn in Grahams side, I can just feel it. Given his expression he looks like the type to kill allies to advance himself, but of course thats just another prediction. Maybe he'll try to sabatoge Graham.

I was thinking that Graham has masked man potentional, But Ali seems to have the edge in terms of scheming, Identities, and now he seems to be getting a red Enact. Of course if my prediction about him joing CB becomes true and he dons a mask.... let me stop there. My imagination was running wild there.

lol skimmed the episode... if the part where Setsuna does his midnight visit to Azadistan starts right after the 20-min mark, then maybe Exia was cloaked? (Can it move when it has active-camo on?)

Anyways, as a Graham fan, gotta love the part in the new OP when he launches in his Flag and the reflection of a targeting reticle appears on his HUD and he smirks... and then when he's clashing with Lockon, Lockon also smirks. That strikes me as more "Char"-like than Ali and his hot-blooded, mouth-wide-open grin. (For people who read Steven Erikson, the juxtaposition made me think of the "hot iron/cold iron" comparison.)

I gotta say. . . as good as the first one.

In a lot of anime when they get past the first opening, the songs start sucking. In this case, nice. . . pretty cool animated opening sequence too. Me like!!!

Allelujah vs. Soma
Lockon vs. Graham
Setsuna vs. Ali

let's get it on!

I'd love to know how you came up with the idea of Ali joining CB, 'cause i can't see it happening in a million years.

Like I said, that depends (on how you look at it). After all, revenge is just another form self-gratification, and that's the type of personal gain Char was fighting for, mainly.

Anyways, that's all I want to say about this topic in this thread.

Something about the new intro. . . who ends up Tieria's big rival? Everyone seems to have one but him.

Things I see for Ali. . .
A) He realizes he's a twad and does something good for a change.
or
B) He kills the Gundam Throne pilots and steals their robots with his gang. Red custom Enact to Red custom Gundam. . . hmm.
or
c) he stays the way he is and receives upgraded Enacts on a regular basis, remaining a rival as he is, w/ no Gundam.


Anyhow, Patrick sure does look a lot like Ali. I don't know. . . they look almost related.

Patrick joins the hunt for Ali if Ali manages to steal Gundams and keep them for himself? Does CB need a clown?

Personally, I rather not see an vast changes of mobile suits like it was something to create in finger snap.

Hopefully Ali's Enact, and maybe some other mobile suits in the series will get revamped for better performance. I mean, Harry Ord did use the SUMO like a pro and made it shine in Turn-A Gundam given the nature of the series, it'd be enjoyable to see the point where we see characters living up to their given reputation using normal suits doing pretty amazing things in Gundam 00.

As for tieria, I bet he blows up Veda(?) or something I could imagine his character going a 180 and thinking twice about his former actions and doing something about it. But that's just wild speculation.

THe op and ed are really good. I am happy about them.

I wouldn't be surprise if Ali is related to Patrick.... maybe long lost brothers?

As for Veda... it reminds me too much of Grand Mother from Terra E for my liking.

No, fellow Gunota.

HEAVEN OR HELL, LET'S ROCK!

Speaking of which, where IS Veda? Were we ever told?

The whole Marina/Setsuna thing should've ended with this to save its absurdity.

I was actually thinking about that computer system in Evangelion that the name escapes me right now... Trinity? Though it doesn't seem Veda is split into three different parts that make decisions. More along the lines of giving info on what are likely to happen and the rankings of people (Gundam Meisters).

The name you're looking for is MAGI

And no, Veda seems to be a single mind, unless it's revealed to be composed of three parts. Also, Veda seems more than that, as not only does Veda choose the Gundam Meisters, but Chall Acoustica from 00F had to ASK PERMISSION from Veda to form Fereshte.

The Magi?

With Veda, the possibility of it containing Aeolia's brain is very high. I mean, people actually listens to it (well, most of the time).

Uhm... the fate of the world will be decided by a computer?
I don't like that at all, and I work in it, so I'm not a luddist.

I mean just because he was the one in the declaration doesn't necessarily mean, that he was the first one. Maybe the organisation is much older, and he was "just" a member who greatly influenced its policy.
Official sources, including the sidestory mangas (00P), have mentioned that Aeolia did establish Celestial Being.

The sources also say that he died in space, right? It doesn't sound his body was ever found or recovered by anyone outside CB. With all the geniuses in CB, shouldn't there be one that discovered how to preserve Aeolia's brain onto a computer?

Allelujah is such a nice boy.

He was last seen going into space... no idea on what happened to him afterwards. For all we know, anything's possible at this point.
