Heh... Oh yeah. Hot pink is the new style for your Mobile-Suiter on the go.
You know how after all this time you begin to slowly despise the Trinity family for their indiscretion and mass murder? It all disappears once they all get brutally annihilated, save for one. I bet Nena and Louise are quite compatible as friends now, if you ignore the fact that she was actually the one that killed Louise's family. Kind of funny how Saji is essentially the only one who hasn't managed to get in a suit with a GN-Drive.
The GN-X Curse formation was, quite easily, the most entertaining thing I have ever seen. I mean seriously, that was like 300 gone Gundam. Honestly, it's really ironic that Setsuna comes to save the day, assisting the surviving Trinity, Nena, who would probably love to make him her boyfriend. It's just ironic... It is... I said so!

Sergei is really emerging as one of my favorite characters, I don't think Soma would be alive right now if it wasn't for him keeping her under control. Chasing the Thrones could have led into a trap or a situation disadvantageous to the squadron. I would pick him over Sumeragi as a tactical forecaster any day of the week.

what about Soma? I know I haven't seen a lot of Gundam shows, but Soma is the best female pilot in Gundam series I've seen

Any members of Gundam maintenance, design, or manufacturing would know exactly how to reconstruct the trans-am system. They might not know what the system they were working on was capable of, but they'd know how to build and install the components. And those design/manufacturing workers are the most likely targets that traitors would try to coopt.

Unknown so far, she hasn't been tested yet or fought any decent opponent by herself. She is better than Nena in the respect that we don't know that she's a terrible pilot.

But that's why he took a gamble; that the Meisters, selected for their mental focus and drive that matched the mentality of the Founder, wouldn't likely to be part of the treachery because they are at the bottom of the totem pole. It is the leaders and Observers who are most likely to betray him.

This is risky, of course, but it is still better than doing nothing. Extreme situations call for extreme responses.

No one bests my Haman or Roux Louka!!!

But yeah, she's pretty decent when it comes down to it. Although we have yet to see act under true pressure. If anything she's been the one piling on the Meisters, specifically Al and the Thrones. She's not fully battle tested yet.

Well Johan said that we were created to be gundam meisters. So maybe she will talk about that and how they were created?

>and is trans-am system like strike freedom and justice gundam now? =_=.. shit.. lol

sort of, but I don't think its as over powered as Wing 0, or Strike freedom or Justice Gundam. It seems to be a speed boost. It makes sense too have a power up at this point, since everyone has false G.N. Drives now. Unless they want to pursue the whole gundam wing, its the pilots that invincible and not the suit.

How is it that the GN-X (Jinx'ed?) always seem to know where the trinity are? Whatever happened to the GN drives' stealth ability?

Also, the UN is being fairly bold in assuming that they are in control, since their possession of 30 GN drives. (do they even know these are different from the GN drives of the 4 main gundams?)

They take such an aggressive stance without even considering the possibility that CB may have more than 30 other gundams themselves (afterall, the alibi that a traitor leaked the tech implies that only a small amount of units could have been smuggled).

Too much trust going on among the world powers, and Kinue proved what awaits those who are naive enough to accept kindness from complete strangers

That is true, but did the world powers really have a choice but to accept those new suits ? Do not forget that the Thrones really crippled their military.

About Graham getting a new GN Flag; I assume they accepted to strip a GN-X from it's drive. Graham must really be reckoned as a top ace by the high brass. I hope he'll kick ass soon.

It could also possible, that all the technology was designed by Aeolia himself, and the people who are building it are just following the assembly instructions. The technician on the Ptolemaios for example doesn't really know much about the functions it seems. All he could say about the fake GN-drives was, that they were missing a part, but he didn't explain, what this was good for.

+1 The real drive tech spec are very tightly secured. The tau drive were developed by another faction from the data from the main CB group or discarded as a failed attempt when the first drives were being developed and that data was stolen by the rouge faction of CB.



I really hope that Aeolia is not dead, it would seem that he had enough forsight to the event of this episode take place and had his body moved to another site

The only suit who's power level we saw was Eins. Now the others will be low as well, but it's been shown that the Thrones carried out missions right after each other without stopping to recharge so it can obviously last a while. In their current situation they need to conserve all the power they can until they can get back to their ship and recharge. Ali being able to spam doesn't surprise me since he won't care how much power he uses since he can just get a recharge later

I'm gonna be a bit of an ass and bring real world physics into the discussion. Warning. Don't read if you're not comfortable with the gravitomagnetic force.

A properly fashioned, super cooled, rotating disc can exert a force on an object through it's center. Three of these discs (one pointing in each dimension, can reduce acceleration. So far only small scale tests have been performed, but they confirm the theory.

The right's his sniping eye, and I don't think he can do the same feat with his left that quickly.

Anyway...

It's rather weird that Johann asked Nena to run after Ali attacked them. She was in a Gundam and she could have taken down Ali during the time Johann was running back to Eins. Guess it she was too shocked to see Michael die quickly before she can even do her cutesy V-pose.

And speaking of "shock", it was so nice to see Nena's face when she saw her two brothers killed. Now you know how Louise felt when you owned her family for fun, you bitch!

I feel sad for Graham though. Well, his Flag did get a GN Drive, but it will definitely not work against Trans-Am. Cut the crap, Graham and get yourself a REAL Gundam!
As Lockon protected Tieria since Tieria is vital for the Gundam Team, thats the same with Nena told by Johann to run.

In this series, Ribbons, Tieria, and Nena will outlast other characters due to their specific "eyes" ability thing.

There's like 20+ coloured balls onboard the Ptolemaios doing maintenances on the Gundams.... And the "upgrades" are already inside the Gundams themselves so there's no need to return to this...."port"
