Well, the episode has not aired yet. Here's some brief thoughts...

I'm curious to see how people react to the "Gundam" returning. Is it immediately recognised? If not, why not. I'll be particularly curious to see Aina's reaction, since she's more of a civilian - I think she recognised it as a Mobile Suit but not a Gundam, so does she know what as "Gundam" is or is that forgotten? Also, what's happened to Aina's maid.

Gjallarhorn have two MS remaining. I suspect the old man is going to survive but what about the younger guy?

I had originally expected the orphans to abandon the place and go into hiding after the events that started here but looking at the OP it looks more like they'll stay. It has everything they need and is a reasonably defensive position. Curious to see how things develop longer run. Did the CGS adults survive and will they try to reclaim it?

Can't wait to see what will Mika/Barbatos do to the remaining two Grazes beside throwing the mace at them. Barba doesn't have any ranged weapons yet, does it? Those Grazes can just shoot it with their rifles from a safe distance, theoretically-speaking .

The question is : whether it's possible for Barbatos to even get a scratch from it/

Man this series is awesome. The important characters has depths. I really like the Old Lt, shame he's almost guaranteed to die next ep. Mika is also not a one dimensional soldier like Setsuna or Heero. And I'm almost certain Orga wont betray Mika, he really respects Mika but and the same time gave him a look that I think shows brotherly love.

Kudelia Episode 2 Status:

TOLD AGAIN

Seriously, is this gonna be a repeating theme for the next few episodes? Because I like it At least she is aware of her ignorance though, and not being self-righteous about it much.

I actually like some of the little and not-so-little details going on this episode, like how Mikazuki's view changes from being inside the cockpit to looking directly out the Gundam's eyes on startup, and the fact that Barbatos needs thruster fuel (most Gundams just go with reactor energy = thrust). The Barbatos fight was a bit too short for my liking, but it looked good, so there's that.

Dear heavens. 42 child-soldiers from the Third Group just died from this “little skirmish”. That’s one helluva reality check for our resident princess, and it deeply hurt Crank’s conscience too. The fact that he didn’t know until Mika told him that their squad was killing child-soldiers made him lost every confidence retreated from the fight and helped prevent the total annihilation of CGS. He’s such a good man inside. But after that, he requested to sortie alone to “deal with” the children and prevent other soldiers to go with him. I wonder what he’ll do since he really doesn’t want to hurt those children. Will he just do as he was ordered and eliminate CGS child soldiers? I hope he has a better plan. But either way, his waving a very huge death-flag in his next mission. I really hope he survive it, but this Gundam after all so.....

Btw, I do find the fact that only Ein’s Graze that has a rifle to be rather convenient. Even if he’s a veteran, Crank can only do so much with only an axe (where’s his rifle gone, anyway? Did he not bring it coz it’s just a “small mission”). On the other hand, Ein can barely do anything even with the rifle since he’s just a newbie. The fact that Mika/Barbatos was trying his hardest to evade Graze’s rifle shots can be regarded as a sign that the rifle is still effective against the Gundam (especially if aimed at the exposed frames). And thank god Mika is smart enough to evade the shots by jumping around and making smoke screen. Seriously though, Barbatos needs a ranged weapon or a good shield ASAP for the upcoming threats. Agility and smoke-screen alone won’t work forever against raining of bullets/artilerry.

I think this episode just answer it. If Graze's rifle is really useless against a Gundam which frame is exposed for everyone to see, Mikazuki won't put that much effort evading and using Gjallarhorn's Workers as shield like he did here.

Highlight of the episode: Biscuit has sisters named "Cookie" & "Cracker" . That's gold.

lol, twin little sisters. Funny name for Bicuit's family but its a heartwarming sight. The first group are still an arse but they would be remove. The major that called for the assassination is also an arse but he would probably be caught by shneaizel look-alike.

Nice interaction between Mika ant the princess relena copy. She really doesn't know anything and Mika sees through it.

Boring plot device to extend the battle till next week. I can't believe they forgot loading the machine with fuel.

There is highly possible that each graze might have their custom weapon, otherwise, Crank should knew that going is only resulted in his death.

I actually like the Gundam battle this time, they actually used sand screen and destroyed mobile suits as shield. I wonder if Mika ever regained Barbatos lost cockpit

the bromance is too high in this one i almost ship Mika x Orga for a second when Orga talking about Mika opinion. Sadly, his death/mask flag got a hell lot more apparent compare to the previous ep.

Am i the only one feeling tragic for Atra?? i mean, no gundam, ever end well for multiple heroine and none gundam end in Harem either, and the most common route for Gundam always resulted in 1 heroine death....

Biscuit's sisters are cute :3

Orga is starting to become my favorite character in this series and the action was smooth this week as well. Also for some comedy...


It's just fruit!
