Veda being on the moon... somebody liked the Bamboo Cutters story too much as a kid.

They being called Celestial Being makes sense since the people of the moon in Kaguya hime's story are called celestial beings.

GN particles = Kaguya (shining)

Actually... Don`t you think that Ian Vasty looks somewhat similar to Saji?

Anyways, I have to say I was excited to see Sergei finally own a Gundam. Been waiting for that since his bout w/ Setsuna. He and Soma and the other HRL troops were awesome. Graham too, sticking w/ the Flag and being completely GAR.

Like I said weeks ago, Thrown pilots=Fail!!!

Wang, who's side are you on?

What was with that strange face Tieria was making on the Plot ship? Oh wait, that was a smile?

I laughed at how Ali just started spilling everything to Kinue. His expression changes and her face were priceless.

Orange-kun got a date. Patrick FTW!

Oh noes. Setsuna pawn'd in preview?

The reason I want Kinue to be alive is, not because I like her, but because I want someone to finally pay for their mistakes. Even if it's only Ali. Someone has to suffer consenquences for something sometime.

The way he ran his mouth was just stupid. He outted himself and his prospective clinent to a reporter. Sure, he thought he killed her, but he did a sloppy job of it. She has to live, because giving Saji "character developement" simply isn't good enough at this point!

And hopefully it'll be just the start of karmaic feedback. Eventually everyone who has something coming to them will get what's coming to them. All the Meisters , everyone in Celestial Being will die, they'll get their badly wanted martyr deaths, their good-bye kisses, whatever else they want in their last storyboards.

We can pick up the pieces next season. For now, just so long as it ends, and we have a clean slate to start with. And no cliff hangers!

Which means that military and engineering background are 2 main characters backgrounds.
Well, not always... There are others, like the junk collectors (Judau), the martial artists (Domon), and the vagrants (Garrod).

It seems that even though Saji might be able to pilot an MS, I doubt that he can be as good as Graham or other aces in a short time
Even Gundam main characters can't do much on their first battle (maybe except for Oliver May--who's also an engineer), but if anime teaches you anything, its that sometimes talent defeats practice.

I agree: Alž and Nena are on top of my "THEY MUST DIE" list because they're just plain evil and kill just for their personal amusement.

Oh my gosh, this episode is moving at such an incredible pace. I just knew that Kinue would end up hurt or possibly killed for snooping too deep about CB and it was Ali so no big surprise. Saji is really a traumatized person who had nothing but bad luck in the recent episodes. I don't know what else to say about or what is going to happen to him later in the future. I just knew that the three factions would work together in the end to stop and destroy CB. Patrick in love with Katie? He is sure the cocky, flirtatious romantic type. GN-X mobile suits pawned the Trinities. What is up with Wang Liu Mei dealing with the Trinity siblings? And of course, I knew that Ribbons was responsible for being involved with Veda somehow and with that evil purple Haro.

Does anyone know what episode will end the first season of Gundam 00 since the latest episodes are moving very fast to reach some sort of cliffhanger or conclusion pretty soon?

You agree? Do you know he means that he want all the Meisters and Celestial Being dead and maybe rename the next season The Adventure of Wesley or something?

Yes, I'm aware of that too.

That's why I call it "main" character background. The word "main" here means "majority"

Sometimes talent DO defeats practice. But Saji's characters/mentality is the main reason why I said that I doubt he will be as good as Graham/other aces in A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.

Notice the phrase "A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME". Most of the time Louise is the one who pushes him forward. He might have the talent but remember that in figthing/war, morale/will is extremely important.

Saji doesn't seem to be in high morale or have lots of will, at least for now...

Ali is definitely evil, just notice how he looks after "finishing" Kinue. He seems to
like watching other people suffer..

Ali was a MUST DIE case from the beginning, but I did'nt expect Nena to be such a bitch... She is like a spoiled 5 y.o. clild with minigun

P.S. Shinn Asuka, Suzaku, Trinity... Did Sunrise bribed psychologist is their medical team for examining new pilots or what?

I agreed on the part where he said that someone has start to pay... the first ones are Ali and Neena, the other two thrones and at the end the Meinsters too because they're no saint.

No characters is PURE WHITE in this show. All are between LIGHT GRAY to PITCH BLACK if you know what I mean....

One thing for sure : ALI = PITCH BLACK

The Meisters are far more screwed up than any of those guys...so yes, it's probably a good bet they're looking at psychological disorders and tossing them in when designing characters.

True, no one is spotless, but at least some of them are minding their own buisiness and aren't looking for a fight or are out to ruin anyone's day. Basically everyone in the Factions is a normal person doing their socially acceptable and publically government sponsored jobs.

Nein, he is bastard for no reason - almost as Gauron from FMP... I hope he is killed by Saji. He deserves such a miserable death.

Saji has demonstrated that he's not the spineless type when it comes to serious matters (Ep 5 when he tries rescuing Louise from tumbling onto the atmosphere, or when he took charge leading the way to safety later on that ep, or in Ep 7 when he shielded Louise during the terrorist attack, or in Ep 18 when he ditch school to fly across the world to check up on his injured girlfriend). He's really only shown the wishy-washy personality through his interaction with girls, but that's not much different from the Super-Ace, Athrun Zala, or many other anime characters, for that matter.

So really, I think he's perfectly capable of becoming a good pilot if it comes to it. The question is whether the plot goes that way.

Louise is his spine. She's out of the picture now, so he is therefore spineless.

If she recovers, walks up to him and says "Avenge Mama!" Gundam Meisters beware.

Nonsense. Louise is practically the only person he interacted with the entire series, thats why.

His sister's death should be enough to push him to the dark side.

None of that really disqualifies my statement. He's taking the whole Louise thing really hard since she's no longer a source of strength or inspiration for him.

I don't know, I find him slightly deeper than Gauron to be honest. He hasn't shown any of the super villain Imma kill my own subordinates type behaviour that FMP villains are famous for. And hopefully they don't keeping him back from the dead after he seemingly dies like Full Metal Panic and The Second Raid insisted on doing constantly. We'll have none of that Gonzo style FMP/Dragonaut/Last Exile stuff here please.

Odd that that Mime guy hasn't done his little routine yet
