Solid episode I still can't believe the way the characters are actually being fleshed out and if this Gundam is following the new formula I think it is. It's going to be great. So Barbatos is one of the 72 Gundams that ended the Calamity War? How much more bad ass can it get, I mean it already looks bad ass even when it's down to the frame. I can't wait to see it in action since it's being upgraded with an unlimited budget. Kudelia's Secretary acting shady as fuck since earlier episodes, when the Gjallahorn guy(I swear he should be that one masked character)said he had someone that dealt with underground dealings I hope it wasn't her he was talking about. Good to see tekkadan having some ground to stand on, and did those 2 guys get laid lol?

Loved the episode. Kudelia still gets on my nerves, though. She is not some weak or whiny heroine by any means but her character just doesn't interest me. I really hope she won't be Mika's love interest. I'm starting to warm up a little to Atra but I wonder if she will survive till the end.

Loved Amida's interaction with Atra. Interesting to see that Amida is fine with sharing her man with other women. I like her character as it's something new and refreshing. I like her best out of Naze's women. When Amida said "As long as you choose the right man," does this mean that Mika might not be the one for Atra? I really hope it doesn't mean that Atra will be deeply hurt by Mika. I don't ship it by any means but I don't want Mika to do something bad or hurtful to her. Well, maybe he will hurt her by falling in love with another girl but who knows.
I don't see Mika falling for Lafter even if I want it to happen but something might happen between them. Maybe Lafter will be Mika's first woman?

I started to suspect Fumitan two episodes ago or so but I never suspected her to be Fareed's spy. Maybe she's the one he was referring to. I think that even if she is the spy, I doubt she will do anything to harm Kudelia. I can see her dying, though.

So Eugene and Norba are no longer cherry boys, huh? BTW, is it just me or was Yamagi not happy when Norba made it obvious that he had sex? Could it be that Yanmagi has a thing for Norba? Since it is a non-BL series, I don't expect any hints of same-sex romance but I am sure it happens. Well, I don't think Yamagi is a girl, right?

I'm looking forward to see Fareed's fiancee. While it's a bit disturbing, I'd like to see what kind of character Armelia is. Hope she is not an annoying brat.

Barbatos is being upgraded just because Teiwaz's Big Boss liked what Mika said, woo~

So this Gundam's basically Orga and his group living and dying as a family as they explore various places. Well, I guess it's good lol.

Ah, seeing Barbatos's bare frame was a bit too much for me.

The ceremony was lovely and all, Kudelia also chose to move ahead, fortunately. Now then, time to spill some blood for he Tekkadan crew?

Well, I'm getting bored, but still looking forward to what's gonna happen next. Looks like the next episode will show a bit more of their past?

Awww, this was cute once again :)
The Tekkadan family is so cute!
Unlike Naze's harem >.>
I like his wives, but Idk... It's weird.

I thought this was an amazing episode. One of my favorites so far. A lot of nice character moments.

Guys is it just me or did really nobody notice that Yamagi has obviously a thing for Norba?

Like in this episode Yamagi looked super jealous when he heard that Norba got laid xD

These episodes feel shorter than they are. Enjoying the character interactions. We got to see McGillis and his friend or should I say brother-in-law Gaelio. So we know we can expect some action next episode. Ein is still angry over Cranks death and he wants vengeance. Hopefully no innocents die over it and they come to a peaceful settlement.

Orga had a lot to drink. Mika looking after him. Got his back :)

People are saying that Fumitan may be the spy that McGillis hinted. Although he mentioned it was a man?

Akihiro talking in the preview while training at the same time hahaha. We also get to see even smaller Atra and Mika! Can't wait.

It's too bad that Fumitan seems to be the obvious choice to be the spy. She was pretty useful to Tekkadan and was becoming more likeable.

Even though this was technically the 2nd "slow" episode in a row, I loved it. Really engaging stuff throughout I thought. As a Gundam series, this show is really unique.

Whereas I think most Gundam shows recently have had tons of Gundams, Barbatos is very unique in this. It'll be epic when the next Gundam shows up.

From a sneak peek of the next episode it looks like Barbatos will finally be getting his sword! Can't wait!

Her death flag was set the moment Fumitan was given the burden of Kudelia's trust in a form of a necklace. IF by chance she's the spy she'll be either 1) redeem herself later by the inevitable betrayal, or 2) die horribly whether by her heroic sacrifice or generic villain death.
Of course if the spy itself is not that blonde who gave Orga a handkerchief.

Fumitan 'didn't' wear the matching locket Aina bought for her. We can be 80% sure by now that she is
Spotted, this is really no good.

This could go so many ways... Not familiar with Gundam, I really hope they won't mess up, getting us in useless war between machines with no plot developpement.
So far so good, ganbare!

BTW : I hate when great characters die. Why did I start watching a Gundam ; _ ;

Fumitan is definitely a spy, but she's getting attached. She'll still most likely do something to put everyone in danger, but will regret it. Looking forward to the reveal.

I don't think I would usually enjoy slow political episodes like this, but Gundam pulls it off so well. I really enjoyed this episode and am really enjoying this show so far.

Looks like we'll be having a look into Atra and Mikazuki's past a bit in the next episode. This will be interesting.

Also, I'm all for the twin tails and Akihiro ship, but I'm afraid of the death of twin tails (╥﹏╥)

All these Gundam fans talking about the likelihood of death for all these characters scares me 😰

Fumitan is being suspected as the spy? For some reason I figured that woman orga and Mika met was the spy for Char.

Yeah maybe her handkerchief is some sort of a beacon. Paranoid theory, not to be excluded.

Episode where not known anything negative, finally the graphic opening we see the Gundam with the new livery, so if we want to say, then joined the cast of a new character, what we want from life? A good fight? It seems he's going to get even that, for now you should just wait; even if the thing that intrigues me the most right now, you know who is the spy in the brigade, at least that's what I realized during the narration, perhaps Fumitan? But it is still early to tell.

*cough* Ah, yeah... rest of the episode was pretty good, too. Orga was cute, drunk and all, and I loved how Biscuit and Mikazuki were both taking care of him in the meantime... Seriously, like a pair of doting wives almost. Except it's yaoi. And that makes it even better.

Looking forward to the upcoming conflict... that one guy's subordinate from the first couple episodes seems to be taking a darker turn... and I'm really hoping that the blue-haired guy gets killed soon. He's too damn spoiled and bratty.

Ikr? I already had a hunch that Yamagi had a crush on Shino with the way he looked at him after he took his hand and threw him out of the Mobile Worker. But this episode pretty much cemented that theory: that kid is definitely 100% gay for his senpai!

Other than that another great laid-back episode: I'm really starting to warm up to the rest of main cast (aside from Orga, who I pretty much loved right away). And yep, Fumitan is totally a spy: but the fact that she looked at the necklace she refused to wear and sighed might indicate that she's feeling bad for her actions: maybe will she have a change of heart in the near future?

Nice build up episode with some neat dialogue and bonding scene. The attachment to Tekkadan is the strongest point of this episode truly.

I don't understand why they mention the person's entire name, in this case, the princess' full name. They always do that in Anime and manga, like seriously?

This was a cute ep. Despite this being pretty laid back in comparison to previous episodes, the tone shift was jarring at all. Hopefully this more light-hearted ep doesn't mean something awful's gonna happen soon. Also, for Eugene saying he didn't care much for women, it certainly sounds like he was able to get over that mindset fairly quickly haha It was nice to see Orga appreciate what Ride, Yamagi, and Takaki do for the younger members though. Those three have gotta be in the like 12 - 14, and having to babysit younger kids at that age really sucks for multiple reasons, so it was cool to see their work of keeping the younger ones out of trouble get acknowledged.

Mafia/Yakuza stories kinda turn me off. Anyway, I was pretty sure Fumiton was a spy from the beginning. Ein is going to go for revenge, which this episode was sort of a build for. This episode was really about the characters realizing the consequences of their actions, and I am glad it finally addressed the part where Mika killed the commanding officers at the beginning.
