THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Dang, I'm not sure I'll like Klim with his personality. Then again, it was entertaining to see him in his role. I thought the episode was okay. Their new place sure feels a bit different..

Go Aida~

I really wonder when they will become good friends. The action was okay. Klim actually impressed me with his piloting skills.

Chesto!

Man that was extremely well said Dellensen. Almost thought you had Klim there for a second there. That was a great battle I hope they can keep this up for the rest of the series. Well I really enjoyed this ep. I knew Aida still cared about the Captain and they showed it well here. It seems Bellri will join them now to get answers and I have to say I like to know more also.

Good episode. Not gonna nitpick the little details. The panning and zooming they do is still taking a bit to get used to though.

I'm liking Klim Nick's character. Dellensen too. Possible threat from space, most likely related to Raraiya and the G-Self. Dellensen's Chesto and Bellri's SU-Cord were pretty awesome, though I have no idea why Bellri screamed the latter.

Bell (and his mom) knowing nothing about the Capital Army has become the reason for him to join Aida's squad? Okay, cool.~

Battle scenes were pretty awesome though. Bell is quite skilled with that G-self.
Too bad, he couldn't let Dellensen know that he has become a permanent adept of the G-self fighting for Aida's team.

Raraiya is becoming more and more annoying by each episode and so is Noredo. Why don't they just die off already? >.<

Decent episode overall. I sense Klim getting jealous of Bell gradually.

Damn, things are starting to get interesting! But i still can't learn to like the setting. They have giant fighting mechas yet all the buildings are somewhat medieval.

The action scene was great, it feels like the Gundam I'm used to. That and the story starting up raises my interest of the series.

Aida as good looking as always~

First things first: Klim is hilarious and I expect him to inspire some great memes on the net.
Second, I like the fights a lot. The "vintage" animation style really helps illustrate what's going on. I think the Montero getting it's fingers cut off and the G-Self fending off 3 attacks wouldn't have looked as impressive any other way. Especially in cgi.

This show is developing quite nicely! Interesting twists, and some nice battles. Plus the characters look pretty great and make me think of more classic mecha series.

I can't figure out why Aida isn't mad about Bellri killing her commander...I guess she's over it, but I'm used to characters never giving up on grudges so maybe its a fresh breath of air?

Like others have said, Char clone in the next episode!

So far I'm enjoying this crazy ride greatly. I find the dialogues hilarious, also Raraiya's expressions and the way she talks cracks me up every time. This is really fun ^^

Excellent episode, the story is really getting fleshed out now. Seems there's a lot of political intrigue going on within the Capitol as it looks like the army was put together in secret (I think Bellri is training for the separate Capitol Guard). I get the feeling there's a space based faction that have yet to make their presence felt, probably the moon.

I'm liking the idea of an advanced technology taboo, does explain why the mobile suits seem less advanced than Neo Zeon or Crossbone Vanguard suits from the UC era.

I'm still betting on Bellri, Aida and Raraiya being Newtypes.

Aside from that another decent episode though.

Not sure if it was translated incorrectly or the dialogue is just awful at times. And the battle was on the underwhelming side of things. How didn't the instructor hear that Bellri identified himself?

Also, Raraiya is best girl. G, G, G!

Last week I sad that the only 2 things missing for this to have every element of a Tomino Gundam, were a sudden side switch and a masked antagonist. One down and one to go.

This was a really great episode, Bellri getting forced to fight and all.
I like how Tomino is slowing revealing us how things are going on in this world, like how at first I was wondering why their technology wasn't so advanced but apparently they are disallowing technology advancement so that they can prevent what went on in UC, and how they dont also allow an army, but until now the Capital guards are breaking all this because of the need to defend themselves from the pirates.
I was wondering why at first Raraiya was acting the way she is and hardly talking and they mentioned is because of where she fell from affected her(?)
And LOL the guy was almost crushed by the G-selfs hand.
This show is getting better and better.

I just can't wrap my head around where in the Time Line calender of gundam this takes place. I could have sworn this took place post-UC but this makes me wonder where AD fits in, since my screenshot implies (according to the translators) that this also takes place after Gundam 00 time line.

U.C starts around 2045 A.D

G no Reconguista takes place in the year 1014 of the regild century. regild century is what people started using to count years after the U.C ended

Gundam 00 is a different timeline and not connected to the U.C universe

AD is the timeline we currently use in the western world today.
I'm assuming her point was that tech had regressed even behind UC level, which, while obviously an exaggeration, doesn't seem too far off looking at the performance of the MS seen so far, which clearly aren't much different from 0080-90 suits.

The problem is, the Gundam 00 timeline is specifically called the AD Timeline, and she was talking about "Intercontinental Wars", which i'm having difficulty wrapping my ahead around.

Or, this is because Tomino's dialogue is very verbose and the translators didn't nail his intended meaning.

Either way it's pretty obvious this has nothing to do with 00, it's after UC, so there is no possibility of that, the AD she talked about must have been the present day, pre-UC time.

Pretty sure the intercontinental they talked about war was the current one between Ameria and Gondowan. Which I'm assuming is North America and Africa. Failing that we've still had intercontinental wars in our AD anyways.

FINALLY, i can say the following phrase, this was a solid episode.

The dialogue was definetly less cringe worthy as it had been in the past, only 1 scene really had any issues which was when berril was being questioned by the captain, it basically divulged into spouting random keywordcs that havent really been explained yet, other than that the pacing wasnt all over the place like the past 3 episodes and actually felt like it wasnt moving either painfully slow or way to fast, the action in this entry has been pretty solid in general so far and i really like how in this episode mechs were losing parts during the fight. I also like how every pilot that has died in a fight so far has been mourned rather than being just nameless explosions

pretty sure AD was the name of the century before the UC, i remmember the first scene of unicorn being set at the very last day of that time period and it was thrown around a couple times in the UC, plus thats what we use today in the real world

So hopefully we get more episodes like this

they said them but they conveyed them really poorly, i wouldnt blame people for not catching them cause they just nonchallantly threw them in while they were4 distracted by a bunch of useless dialogue form npcs, sadly this was a huge step up from the dialogue of past episodes.

Also can we all just agree that the new haro is fucking horrifying, i hope to god that isnt gonna set the norm for future gundam, old haro had such a cool charm to it

The same debate happened when Gundam AD 00 appeared and it's misleading indeed. However, what the others above said is true.

Aida meant our AD (with large scale intercontinental wars like WWI and WWII, sending people to space, landing on the Moon, etc.).

Universal Century marks the era in which the people on Earth began to move out to the Moon and began to live in space in artificial colonies, etc.

In Turn A, Diana Soreil also refers to AD as the era (ours) before UC in a pretty similar way, although it was exactly this one comment that fueled the confusion about Gundam AD 00.

Gundam AD 00 is an alternative universe telling. G-Reco may look like it with the wars and the elevators, but this should be considered only Tomino's choice to include, borrow, or develop them in G-Reco. (Yes, he can).

This is why some of us occasionally bitch around advising new viewers to stick to Tomino's development of UC as vast and old fashion as it might be 30 years later.

-----

About the ED song. It contains the same lines we heard in the toilet melody and the comment of its maker in episode 3. Searched a bit and it seems Tomino has composed the song himself, according to YT users. Could someone confirm it? :)

You mean where he was asked if he was the Operations Directors son and retorted with saying that he has no use as a hostage? Nothing wrong here just him asking questions and retorting them Or the captain he was fighting against in mid air? Because there was nothing wrong or any randomness in what he said since he couldn't connect to the captain.

The action was great man Idk what you were expecting? It's something that you should expect with the inferior mechs they're using now that you know just how advanced their technology is which is not much.
