THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Oh God Aila, your cuteness never ceases to surprise me. The episode had a lot of hype built up for what's to come in the finals. I'm rooting for Sei and Reiji of course. But at the same time, we also see a different side of Yuuki in some ways.

In other news, uh oh...that's not pretty what's going underground there. This is going to be one hell of a match. Calling it now.

That was freaking amazing. So many character references I felt like I was about to burst. Plus that little bit near the end. THE PLOT THICKENS!

Quite a few cameos this ep. Even had a building and cookies shaped like Haro. Damn next week's ep is going to be pretty intense, I hope they get to DBZish with it though, need some tactics.

The cameos, the gunplas and the passion of the characters just by playing gunpla...this episode is the perfect setup for the match.

this ep is great! LOTS and LOTS of cameos and some great action from Reiji and Sei.
Good to see that Mao, Fellini and Aila get new Gunpla as well!
Wonder what will happen to Nils and Caroline?
Next ep should be epic!

WHY CAN'T I HOLD ALL OF THESE CAMEOS?!
And they all look so happy. Gundam afterlife confirmed, though Domon is not quite with Rain(dat plugsuit) since he's a shota here.

Well we now know who's on top with the KiraraxFelini relationship. The faces of those three when they saw their fight was priceless. I want that Gundam Fenice Rinascita.
Mao also has a new GunPla huh. And Aila going with the Sazabi. Nice picks.

A big crystal? Didn't see that coming. What exactly does it do and how was it brought there since I assume it's from Arian. Season 2 pl0x.

And Meijin just went maximum chuuni there. Channeling his inner Setsuna complete with the scarf. And that Exia Dark Matter. Hardly resembles the Exia at all. No doubt he's being controlled.
Let's see this final battle. At least we're going to see the Discharge system Rifle mode next episode.

That Kid was Domon as a kid check out the family photo Domon was carrying around to identify Kyoji.
There is an episode where he realises he loves Rain and it shows her as a kid taking that photo

Dat Hype >.<...Really! The dream of all Gundam fans was in this ep ^^

Lol'd so much at the KiraraxFelini fight and how Felini actually liked being on the bottom XD...those 3 faces were truly priceless XD

Dat Gundam Fenice Rinascita. Looks friggin EPIC!!!

Mao's luck is finally back XD And Aila's Sazabi looked really nice. Loved the color ^^

Dat plot XD Crystal? And Nils is caught :0...Lol'd at his reaction to Caroline being there and saying she's his fiance with "Our relationship is developing quickly" XD

Loved the Sei vs Reiji fight. Good to see Sei getting BA :D

The part with the insert song and everyone having so much fun had me smiling crazy ^^

Especially at the Rinko part and being protected from the old perv XD And then the family hug with Sei and his father too. Was really sweet. The salute from Reiji was nice. I wonder what his family is like?

I was having so much fun thinking "finally a final that doesn't have drama before it and will just be a pure manly battle, since that's pretty much a must in these types of duel anime" then all of a sudden, a friggin controlled Meijin :( Not what I was hoping. But he and his "Dark Exia" Look FRIGGIN BOSS!! Really loving the color too ^^

And the secretary still has something up her sleeve just in case too. Well seems like we'll have out first 2 ep long battle? hehe.

Yo.. I thought this episode would be chill but heck naw! Just when Yuuki was telling the 2nd meijin that he's not gonna follow his philosophy... I already expected it though.. I was also right that he's gonna turn evil at some point just by observing the color scheme and design of Exia dark matter( I want to get it now!) Now he's Controlled and his skills are all maxed up. How will Reiji and Sei counter this astonishing turn of events. A crystal huh. I thought it was going to be a big huge crystal ball like the shape of the stone Reiji gave to Sei. Well Close enough... NILS NEILSON is in a pinch! If he was alone then he can manage since he's a ninja but his girlfriend turned fiancé is with him.. Can't wait to see the next episode! Finally the moment I've been waiting for!

Gotta love the special battle of Sei and Reiji! Sei was so cool in this episode! They made it clear why they were even. It's because Sei's Build gundam MK-II has a better quality than Reiji's beginning gundam.

Now I must get Wing Gundam Rinascita and Exia Dark matter. Is Bandai gonna make exia Amazing?

It saddens me Rinko hasn't learned better and ditched Iori's dad for Ramba Ral.

On the other hand, CAMEOS!

I loved some of them. Seeing Christina and Bernard together warmed my heart.

MEIJIN Nooo~o
Looks like it's up to Sei and Reiji to pull him back.

Not even going to bother pointing out the cameos of this episode, they were there. Seeing Uso with his family was heartwarming though.

This really makes me wonder, if father Iori taught Yuuki, and Meijin Kawagutchi is taking after the original Meijin's style of spreading the joy of gunpla, does that mean Sei's father could potentially be the first Meijin?
Or maybe he lost to him way back when he placed second in his world championship.

The Nils plot is feeling a bit rushed now, they should really just save it for a second season honestly. Unless of course it is meant to tie in with what happened to Meijin at the end of the episode.

Cameos everywhere, I guess the second Meijin end up being brainwash as well to end up that way.

Sunrise must've alot of money to burn, even bringing in Char VA just to say one line.

Nope. Back in episode 11, it was said that the first Meijin came out around 50 years ago. He would be around 60-70 at present if he debuted during his teens or early 20's. Sei's father doesn't look that old at all.
Yuuki has his own manga adaptation covering his past so we might know more about his history with the Meijins and Takeshi there.

Btw for those who don't know Fenice Rinascita means Phoenix Reborn , which is fitting since his old fenice was destroyed , and now he is reborn from his ashes more powerful than ever ^^ ( but failing due to LOVE :) )

Talking about phoenixes , I'm surprised they haven't used this series to animate some Original gundams , first one that came to mind is of course the phoenix gundam :)

I'm dead. Done. It was too much.

And that beautiful Fenice. Actually, I was a little surprised that it couldn't transform before? It is a Wing Zero isn't it?

I need next ep soon. WHAT DID NINE DO?!?!?

GBF Season 2: Legend of Arian please?

With so many cameos, perhaps it is easier to list which series that did NOT make it to this episode :D

(major series only)
ZZ: No sign of Judau cs. Haman is considered from Zeta, right?
08th MS team: ...
0083: No sign of Kou/ Nina/ Gato
F91: No sign of Seabook/ Cecily
Wing: No sign of Wing Boys
Turn A: ...
Seed: ...
Unicorn: well, there's loli Audrey ...

I really wish they wouldn't make the scene at 03:47 obscured like that. There are a lot of cameos there.

Lol, I actually searched far and wide in Gundam wiki, but never checked Gundam X, since there's Orba and Shagia's Cameo... lol

Traced their names through Fa Yuiri's page in gundam wikia, It's Shinta and Qum.

So, thx and fixed

Still can't find the guy besides Odelo Henrick at 13:25. Searched the whole cast of Victory Gundam, and didn't find any match.

Lol, never mind... Found him Warren Trace. He's not included in the cast section in the wikia page.. .>_>
