Pretty good episode.

There is still some strange behavior that seems to go too far, but it's not that bad.

Luin's identity was obvious, but glad the other cheerleader figured that out.

Aida seems determined to get herself killed by her inability to pilot. I'm starting to feel a bit bad for the Arcane, it's probably more capable than she's making it look .

The action was pretty solid. Though sometimes the technology in this Gundam seems more like magic than any we've had over the past few years. I'm drawing a blank on how that backpack absorbed all those shots and somehow launched a giant pink g-self at the enemy unit and messed up its systems. Looked cool though .

Nice episode. Belri finally got to meet up with his mother and she is now aboard the ship. However she seems determined to take them back with her. I doubt that is going to happen though.

Glad someone finally figured out that Luin is Mask.

I swear the technology in gundam never ceases to amaze me. Seriously now I just chalk up all explanations to space magic

Amusing episode was amusing and wow was blondy incredibly rude. I also noticed that Earth's geography must have changed or it got very smaller if the sky shots and G-Self being able to easily fly out of the atmosphere frequently are any indication.

Glad that Wilmit Zenam is alive, but it seems that she wants Bellri and Noredo back to the Capital after seeing some evidence from the Amerian side.

As for Aida, glad that she didn't accidentally shot Bell's mother. It could be another deja vu! On the other hand, I wish she wasn't a lousy MS pilot as the G-Arcane can do more than that!

"Have your mommy let you suckle her breasts"

This show continues to be resolutely out of left field. The characters (Aida especially) seem to enjoy shooting themselves in the foot a lot.

Poor Bell keeps getting newfangled (and untested) technology thrust upon him mid battle.

Same goes to Luin Lee as he's a guinea pig for the Capital Army. On the other hand, his Elf Bullock needs some spruce up to distinguish his unit from the rest of his Kuntala Corps.

I just love how, early in the episode, Bell, Aida and her dad can just casually chat and drink with relaxing music playing as a background while that giant Mobile Armor and the rest of Amerian army are stil busy fighting Mask's squad just right behnd them. This must be the first time a fighting masked character got ignored by the MC that badly.

Oh, and Aida's piloting skill sucks so far. I'm afraid G-Arcane will be the next mecha that we won't see the full potential of it because the pilot's skill is lacking after the likes of Blitz Gundam.

Similar thing involving breastfeeding that's even more ridiculous has been said in Brain Powered (another Tomino show). So at least that line didn't caught me off guard .

I will say it's kind of impressive how Luin manages to be surprised by literally everything. Even huge things that should be easily spotted ahead of times like giant balloons and whole islands .

Something was wrong with this episode. It was very confusing. Director must have been on holidays or something. Also animation annoyed me for some reason. But else was nice. This series amuses me for some reason.

recently watched 1-8, the dialogues are total mess, character's emotions are kinda wacky.
storytelling is just like anime from 80's, no explanation about nations standing and whatsoever. the strangest things is, why the heck did they let a prisoner pilot a gundam?

in this eps during the battle Aida went missing and like nobody care until very late, very chaotic.

I don't know why Bell's mother laughed when after she entered her room in eps 7, I thought she went insane for a sec.

and Raraiya rofl wth is her purpose, it's eps 8 now still retarded, first it's G G G G now it's chuchumy hahaha omg what were they thinking.

that being said, but I kinda liked characters design, so probably gonna watch this till the end.

Yeah, the sequencing was confusing. There was that moment when Luin sliced through the balloon near the two cargo ships with Papa Surugan in it alone. Papa Surugan then says Aida will be okay because Bell was with him when he really should be worried that Luin was right behind them. But then Luin wasn't really behind them but apparently far away having G-Self problems.

She was laughing at the Hippo head-trophy on the wall. It's quirky, not insane. Just like how girls greet & talk to their dolls and boys reacting in front of their action-figures and posters in their room (for example, fist-pumping or making other macho gestures in front of your favorite wrestler poster).

This episode gave us much to think about aside from all the wtf moments

- Ameria seems to have quite a build-up in tech
- More than 1 MA? Krim referred to it as "a", inferring more than one has been made. Not as big as :I thought either, but its far more maneuverable. I also don't notice any rear facing guns, which is a problem
-The moon? I wonder if there is remnant UC technology/facilities still there
- Are there no more simulators? Like really, all the pilots seem to have extreme problems with new machines



Either balloons have reached a level of utter perfection, or Mask is just plain retarded



I feel sorry for Mask/Luin anyways, his people are treated like shit, and he's the disposable test pilot in charge of a disposable corps. There's really not much choice he has but to continue, which is sad

That looks like a wide area of moon they're talking about that looks to have man-made structures on it. Looks like this show is starting to spread the seed of the Moonrace in Turn-A Gundam.

Most probably the latter . Also...."What's an Island doing there?!!"....said Mask despite already spent some time fighting above shallow sea with islands all over the place (heck, he was attaching the backpack for his Elf Bull on one of those damn islands). So he either didn't pay much attention to his surroundings or that four-eyed mask sucks his intelligence big time .
