She can be fast enough in even a Tieren High Mobility type. It really depends on how long Saji hesitates.

That just reminded me of the first time I used a firearm; I wasn't even CLOSE to hitting the target.
It is understandable if you are using a handgun, the recoil outweights counterbalance on your hand because of your wrist (speaking from an experience, having fired a rifle, handgun and MG before, all real).

But it is a huge GN cannon with automatic lock-on and target tracking systems. If Saji can't hit that Ahead, he is better of sucking his thumb in the confinement room.

What is up with this discussion? People DODGE BULLETS at close to point-blank range in this show. And we're dealing with fictitious beam technology here.

Unless Louise is actually trying to destroy the cannon directly, she would likely move out of the way really soon. Knowing how fast GN-units move, Saji has 1-2 seconds left before he would miss his chance all together.

It's not about how easy it is to hit something; it's about making up your mind that you are about to kill someone. It doesn't look like Saji was going to fire in the next half-second, so there is a good chance he would just graze the GN-X 3.

About Hong Long: Is he really Wang's brother, or did she just call him "brother" as some kind of sarcastic remark, because of something overprotective he said? Somehow it sounds strange, that they would give this kind of important information so randomly. Why should she start calling him this way now?
According to the magazines, he is indeed Wang's brother. Biological or not, we'll wait and find out.

Maybe she says "Onii-sama" aloud because she is thinking about her brother who is dead. You know, sometimes people "speak" with dead people, as they were alive.
I don't think Hong Long is her brother.

Maybe because she has Nena as her new psychic lapdog and doesn't need him anymore? So she's just dropping the pretense now that he brought the issue up?

I wonder what forces Setsuna to go trans-am the next episode.. If it's only Mr. Bushido I will be disappointed.

I honestly thought the 00 Gundam would be better than this or maybe it's just Setsuna that sucks.

Well, Alle was shot down by Soma so Setsuna need to rescue him, maybe.

Smile Nena

Was that the same ship Nena was using in the third episode or is that a container like the combat container used in the last few episodes of the first season. It looks to big to be a core fighter. It was Carrying a couple of large trucks.

GO SISCON!! Maybe they are just another part of the Illuminati kind of splinter faction in which their identities are masked.

Now we know that they are a the real bad guys. Ribbons is nothing.

You got a point there though. The human reaction time is 0.03 sec (average default), but then I realised that Saji was slow in squeezing the trigger, so Louise might have a chance to dodge the beam. I don't know though, she is already psychotic charging at the cannon.

It would be more interesting if he shoots and it just scratches the cockpit revealing that it was Louise piloting. Now that would screw Saji's mind.

What is disappointing? Bushido/Graham is one of the best pilot in the show and it isn't surprising that Setsuna is being overpowered by him. And the full power of 00 hasn't even shown yet. Really I don't get why people think because Setsuna is losing he sucks automatically, especially for the fact that because of the A-Laws' mobile suits the technology gap is smaller.

I don't understand what's the deal with Mr Bushido... I mean in episode 5 he said "he's a one-man army"!!!
I know the guy is a very good pilot, but to define himself an army and having the freedom to do as he likes regardless of the orders it seems a bit too much. Did he become an Innovator or what?!?

So Nena brought supplies to the Kataron base. Does this mean CB and Kataron have made some kind of alliance?

It was just Mr. Bushido. Setsuna was getting overwhelmed in the epilogue so he goes Trans-Am like a little pussy. It's doubtful he's gonna be able to do anything to Mr. Bushido though. That Ahead has hax

If he can't do anything against Bushido then that means Ali can own all their asses.
-Allelujah still pathetically weak. Fact.
-Saji still a douche. Fact. Didn't even get to see if he fired the shot or not.
-Too much Saji drama.

It seems that Mr. Bushido's Ahead is missing its left arm the next episode

Wow so many Saji/Setsuna/Alle haters... lol. Setsuna is a pretty good pilot, you have to remember he is young though. Ali and Bushido have loads more experience plus they have used an inferior suit. When you fight with the suit holding you back, and get a new one without those limitations, you become an even better fighter than if you just started with that powerful suit. Just think of someone who is blind, they learn to deal with the world in a whole different way. If they somehow are able to regain their eyesight, they will have a huge advantage over someone's who's been able to see the whole time. Similarly, Alle has been crippled by losing his brain waves. To the analogy above, he lost his vision and isn't used to being blind as he was able to see before the accident. He doesn't suck, he is adjusting while fighting a superior super soldier - so of course he isn't doing well. Saji will probably hit but not kill Louise. The sad thing is if Andrei saves Louise somehow it will only strengthen their relationship and weaken Saji's
