sigh...that was really rushed. They could have done a lot more with the romance. Wondering if Kio is gonna be an x rounder or not. Hope Asem doesn't look like a total old man like the transformation Flit underwent from first arc to second arc. Really hoping they try to do a better job next arc :)

Asemu's X-rounder gene was probably recessive. Maybe the X-Rounder gene in Kio will be dominate?

Despite common opinion for the series I think it has a brilliant concept just executed poorly. imo nothing gundam is going to top the 00 series anytime soon.


but basically they took gundam and split it into 3 arcs
the development of flit is one thats interesting and how it ties in with the series needs note as well.

angry little boy that grows into some sort of ruler/power/control freak the prime ministers last words were prequel to how the series will end.


seems like Asuno will be the wolf for gen 3.

Really terrible pacing for the last episode. Seriously disappointed as the 2nd arc was so well done compared to the 1st arc and then we get a shit ending. The marriage really came out of nowhere, in fact they hardly had any development at all until like the first 5mins or less of this episode.

Finally get to see a glimpse on the third and last generation in the preview, looks like Flit will be really old grandfather this time, they didn't show Asemu yet, though is Kio supposed to be the red head? Other than the preview, everything else was pretty meh. The mass production MS are still cannon fodder, are there even trained pilots on those things? O_o

What did you expect? They get a 3-day lesson how to pilot a MS, and thats about it.

Didn't think it would already end ... and what a lame ending that was. This arc began so well with Zeheart/Asemu/Romary - why couldn't they pull this through?

Gen-2 already over? And 2 episodes shorter than Gen-1? WTF?!
It was so sudden and out of place, the ending and the conspiracy.
Just...wtf.
I think they're not trying anymore since this flopped in sales. But since they already said that it's 3 generations, they can't cancel it like After War Gundam X.
Let's see how the Gen-3 fares. Any news on Kio's seiyuu?
And is Flit still alive? What a guy, going through 3 generations for his revenge. So why isn't he the new leader of the Feds?

yes, the second arc was indeed an improvement from the first.. and it did start so well.. sadly, in all the middle of it, i didn't know where it was going to and now, it ended with a rushed finale.. if this was how they planned to end it all along, they should've worked on it.. the unveiling of the conspiracy and the romance with Romary wasn't done well and came very sudden.. all we got is how Asuno became the new White Wolf-or-some-other-title, which was a pain to watch.. argh.. totally blew it.. more episodes should've been spent in this arc than the first..

anyway, Flit was awesome in this arc and played a bigger role.. would he continue to do so along with Asuno in the last generation? hoping this Kio kid is competent in his own generation.. he won't get a next chance..

also, those mass production MS pilots should take a lesson from the guys in Gundam UC.. those that can actually pose some threat to signature suits..

LOL! so true.

I believe only one of them even got a shot off even though they had plenty of time. Even worse, that last enemy guy (forgot his name), WHY was he trying to sniper target the prime minister? That made absolutely no sense. He spent 5 minutes walking slowly then trying to sniper rifle instead of just blowing them all up. Why would he care to spare flit asuno or any of the other officials? facepalm

Ummmmmmmmm

What.

This arc seemed to go in and out the window just like that. That...the time skip should NOT have happened until give or take episode 35 or something. I'm actually a little annoyed. Asemu and Romary had NO romantic attachment and then OH BAM they're married? And how OLD are they? Like 17-18 still? Give me a fucking break.

Rushed, rushed and rushed. I can't believe we're skipping already. We're gonna end up with like, god knows how many episodes of the third arc...I'm assuming the third arc is gonna have WAY more episodes cause I assume AGE might go until 50 episodes.

Buuut this was a little bullshit. There shouldn't be a time skip this early. This arc didn't even have as many episodes as the first one. I am disappoint on a wide scale.

From a genetic point of view, sth like that is impossible. Reccessive gene can't become dominate one, no mater what :P Reccessive is reccesive, and dominate is dominate. For more information read wiki (yea, I know it's offtop, but I couldn't stop myself).

Liked this arc far more better than the first one, but still I think it's the worse Gundam series ever. And this ep was like "3 ep in 1". The Director should commit seppuku.

Was not expecting this episode to be the finale. Pacing is totally off for this show due to the generation format. The finale itself was meh overall, and we get yet another terrible pairing in AsemxRomary.

Hopefully Asem turns her into his sex slave like Flit did with Emily.


LOL I feel the same way, this show would have been a lot better imo had they not added the time skips every 13 or so eps. Its pacing is terrible and seems to time skip just when you start to like it, also the pairing is off, flit had almost interest in emily until yurin died and romary had almost none in asemu until zeheart tried to kill them so how they end up married is beyond me. Gotta say so far this is the lamest Gundam series yet, and thats sayings something SD Gundam cough cough

Oh well see this is what happens after your out of school for more than a year or don't really pay attention. xD

If you think AGE is bad don't go anywhere near Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 boring as fuck, slow paced, uninteresting characters, the character deaths are lulzy and I feel nothing. I do have to give it props for starting this lovely franchise. 4/10 material making myself complete it. xP In my personal opinion AGE is up there with Zeta, SEED, and 00 when it comes to characters and story although the script could have been written better at points like in Fairdain.

Overall good concept, but it is hard to have three generations squished into 50 episodes without it feeling rushed or having timeskips. Also the series would have done better with different character designs cause that turned most people off from the get go after the amazing designs we got from Unicorn and 00 so they were spoiled by these series. I wonder if this would have gotten the same treatment if it aired after Destiny?

AGE is 8/10 material in my eyes still enjoying. I love most the cast. The story is really interesting despite it being rushed.

Not sure if serious or trolling.
'79 is fine, the way it is, even today, because it took its time with its characters.
Something, AGE only did, when the director and scriptwriter woke up from their dream that AGE's way was fine. Which obviously never happended.
And putting AGE & 00 on the same level as Zeta... geez >_>

So why even go this way instead of doing several AGE-Shows?

Flit's slowly turning dark......
I've got this idea that Flit will become the final boss.
The Vagan mobile suit...it's fine I guess. I like that hunched stance.
Also, I prefer AGE-1's final battle more.....

> Flit didn't go to Asemu's wedding
> Flit turning crazy as fuck

I read from the previews of 3rd Gen that Flit is gonna become a really angsty character who gets pissed at everything and is an angry old man fixated on manipulating his own relatives to kill vagan.

Not like its any news to me that flit is evil. Heck, I wouldnt be suprised if they make him the main evil in the last two episodes, give him a kickass new gundam, he turns all "IMA KILL ALL GODDAMM VAGAN!" (even if hes 80 year old XD) and Vagan and Earth Federation kill him hand in hand -> Happy End. lol

How can they become younger than at the beginning? In episode 28. they were ~20 years old. Besides, they never even stated that the wedding happened right away. I know, the pacing's horrible.

About their love.. you know what they say, love is blind.

I'm praying for Flit going nuts and destroying not just all Vagans, but whole Mars. That'd be awesome. The way they made things now, the 3rd gen really has potential. I just hope they don't blow the Flit card.

Also, lol for putting AGE on the same level as Zeta. Double lol for putting 00 on the same level as AGE. AGE's being simple. The only problem is that horrible pacing. They should have made three 26ep seasons and it would be a lot better. 00 on the other hand tried being too complex and mature, and turned out to be just an action show with robots. AGE's cast tops 00's cast anytime.

Agreed. AGE has a really good story and characters, granted some are designed goofy but still. 2nd gen ending was rushed, badly.

That was also one of the problems i felt with 00, and that's my favorite Gundam series. The only ones who really had any character development were Tieria and Louise. And Setsuna, to some degree. Hoping that Gen 3 is better. Really loving the Flit character. IMO he's the best main character out of all the Gundams.

Flit sure got great character development. Turning more and more into his revenge, I really look forward how they kill him off in Arc 3. Srsly, he must die, like Grodek, like that boy who killed Grodek. I think thats the message AGE wants to show us the most. REVENGE ONLY LEADS TO YOUR ONW DEATH! XD
And thus, Flit, you must die! ... at least you get reunited with Yurin d:

As 00, ehm, Louise character development? Sure, she got some nice development, but srsly, I hate her. Setsuna got first development after he heard Marinas song. They should have shown Tierias deveopment in those 4 years after seassion 1, but no, they rather thrown in alot of uninteresting love interests. Srsly, I only cared for Patrick getting a kiss from Katia! XD

I just hope that they don't just kill him off like Grodek. Grodek's death was too cliche. Even 00 had a death like that. Flit needs an epic death to be remembered. Maybe he'll pilot his AGE into the enemy base and do a Ryu on them.

wow, flit is getting more and more messed up. he's now at the level of patrick zala from gundam seed.

also many people seem dissatisfied how this arc ended. I personally dont mind how this ended. i see episode 27 as the arc final and episode 28 used the tie up lose ends and create a plot for the 3rd arc.

i wouldn't like seeing 3-4 episode about asemu and romary getting romantic together (i dont like those 2 together, as many other people) and flit talking long monologs about what the earth federation has done up to this point. i'm glad it was done in 1 episode.

They'll probably explain it during the arc if they really kill him. But judging the opening screenshots, it does seem like he died. Also, he's still got the same ugly haircut lol.

Most important thing, Captain Anus ftw. I can't believe they would name a character like that. It is pronounced/written "einusu", but that's just the same thing. Can't wait to see sage's take on that.

I am very eager to hear Tomino's reaction to this series lol.


Although this show is indeed mediocre at best i dodn't think Tomino has much right to speak. He made a lot of bullshit Gundam series. Actually the only good he made was the first Mobile Suit Gundam. All the continuation where worse and each one was worse than the previews one.

The failed a little with his arc ending episode, they should have shown us that guy before not just remember to show him now. Also the whole standing around and not arresting him and running but waiting for Asumo was stupid. What if he was one second late. Seriously couldn't they make it a little better?

Predictable and boring. Age had slightly better progression in the Second time skip than the first. I guess next episode we will have Asemu's soon pilot and I bet he is going to have the X-rounder powers cause Asemu to hate on him.

No, this time, he'll have Innovator powers to understand everyone. Then it will be peace and love ending with the unity of Vagan and Federation.

Yeah right.

Sorry, Flit. No matter how hard you try, you can never be as awesome as Grodek.

Well, at least Asemu married who he truly wanted to. Poor Flit probably married Emily because Yurin was dead.

I still think Arisa was a better match for Asemu!
