Sorry but Saji != Kira. Kira, if you recall, was a programming genius that worked on MS OS for a while and on top of that, was the ultimate coordinator.

Saji's just a wuss, and if he tries to join the AEU or Union, he'll be easy pickings.

I get the feeling that Saji's revenge won't have anything to do with joining the AEU or Union. I don't know yet, though it's just a feeling that he'll go about it differently.

Also i'm not sure if it was just me, though i had Zechs/Tallgeese flashbacks while Graham was in battle. Especially the coughing up blood.

After this, i dont want to see the 4 cb meisters change factions

would the earth factions forgive and forget the 4cb meister and allow them to join up and fight the thrones? i think thats just wrong plotwise and doesnt really work in real life, you cant mend shit like this....

Graham FTW

Wow. Now THIS is the type of development that Mizushima is (in)famous for! Shocking, morbid and tone-setting! Reminds me of quite a few of FMA's best episodes.

Now all they need is for Trinity to get killed one by one so the viewers can be satisfied.

Oh, and Graham FTW indeed.

You know, this episode did give me the FMA-feeling as far as some of their best episodes went with the shocking, and tone-setting plot developments. D: I totally forgot Mizushima did FMA too. -.- Wow, I feel dumb.

I don't know about a bit much.. just goes to show that so many things can happen during war or conflict like it is now. I'm sure there is a symbolism in this though, a reason behind it. I'm sure it's not just about the ring that she wanted so much. I just hope it isn't too bad.. once again, poor Saji and Louise. Here's hoping things get better for them. =[

Well, in my opinion, they are only 17. We don't know the basis of their relationship.. like exactly how they met and what not. I think he loves her, but isn't too sure. He's just really bad about showing his feelings and what not while she seems to throw them around with ease. (Like the kiss she wanted in the airport that I'm sure Saji really feels bad about this now.)

Now with Louise being in such a traumatic state, and with everything that's been going on, I'm sure Saji will value his relationship with her (assuming there still will be one) a bit more.

She seems like the type of girlfriend that's into the material things, but even if Saji doesn't give her things, she still sticks by him and what not, so I don't think she's using him for just that, because if that was the case, she'd just find someone else. Probably just two confused kids trying to find their way. This will be a big test on their relationship though, I'm sure of that. As far as friendship and responsibility, I'm sure he feels that too, but moreso than "just friends" and what not. We can't obviously say for 100% sure that Saji is in love with her as much as she seems to be with him, but deep down, I think he is. That's just my opinion on the matter. D: Take it for what you will.

I'm still quite interested with Nena, though i don't blame anyone for hating her after her actions in this episode --- even i ended up saying "i god damn hate Nena" after it happened.

Honestly speaking, I'm quite shocked by the screenshots and the spoilers so far. Now all I can hope is for the skeptics of the importance of earlier humorous and slice-of-life scenes for Saji and Louise to shut up.

And wow...Neena...I can't bring myself to hate her yet, provided my opinion doesn't change after I watch the episode. In any case, thanks for using such a mundane reason to provide the great shock no one ever saw coming.

For once, I'm shocked and rather heartened that Graham has done what people believed to be impossible, succeeding Howard's pride in the Flags and definitely dispelling Daryl's doubts. Well done, I say.

And I see Setsuna's back to the habit of going on a solo run. That fool... Well, he had reason to go renegade again, I suppose.

More thoughts when I get the episode.

Is this a technical diagram of a GN Drive?

Sure looks like it. And guess who's going to do something about that. Name starts with an A.

Yeah she's really badass, using one of the strongest MS on Earth just to make a massacre at a wedding party.
