PS: I still think of the A-team at the preview ~


Dude, yes! I'm watching the dub and the narrator at the beginning even sounds like the guy who narrates the intro to the A-Team.

I actually thought the scenes with Kaname in juxtaposed with the rest of the episode nicely. I'm guessing the pilot in that red AS was the guy in the flashback who helped Sousuke. Also, I just realised that Gundam 00 completely rips off FMP when it comes to the main character and middle east connotations.

Did anyone else find it annoying when the show kept going back to what Chidori is doing? It was so unnecessary and stupid. This episode just made me mad for its stupidity.


I kinda of agree, but I really liked the "bang" part.

Anyway, this episode was okay, some douchebags thinking they know what they do (too frequent), they get their ass kicked and the hero jumps in to save the say. But some good mecha action, I think next episode will be better.

I find it stupid that 'so called' trained soldiers just acts like morons, I mean after all they are elite soldiers they should at least have some common sense.

Don't kid yourself, to join the military means to throw away things such as "common sense."

I love how stereotypically American the team members were. They kept saying words in English, and one of them even had a cowboy hat. That, combined with some pretty cool AS action made this an interesting episode.

Batiste or whatever his name was could've been french, or a french immigrant or descended from those. The 2nd in command, Gray(?) had a german name i think, so the same thing about her.
But, anyway. Which other nation would have troops totally ignoring Sagara?

As usual this show managed to take a simple idea (the squad Sousuke joins resents and mistrusts him) and makes it as obnoxious as possible.

I laughed when Grace said her nickname was "Gray" because it's such a blatantly Japanese-style nickname (first two syllables of "Gu-rei-su"). It's just not bothering to try to put any thought into the multinational cast. Even her hair being gray doesn't make up for it because it makes no sense; she seems quite young.

This was true before, but I find it really annoying how this show will mix "real robot" sci-fi, with the robots operating in clearly military units with military-style planning, with super-robot elements like robots jumping around like magical ninja and using their spirits as a weapon. I find they don't blend well at all.

I didn't really get it at the end.

I think we need more explanation into the lambda driver and this black magic stuff.

After the last episode the pace and actual interest sure has lowered, what's happening to this good series? I sure hope it won't stay this way because it sucks...

really after that big battle all this bad guy got was a scar. Come on. Also I knew some of these idiots would end up getting killed. Also like others said the cutting to the girl was a bit clunky.

So, the bad guy from the first arc's still alive. Too bad the group Sousuke got assigned to to kill him was full of douchebags...and Gray. She was cool. Hope she lives. The enemy in the red mech is pretty clearly the guy who helped Sousuke in his flashback. All those random cutaways to Kaname standing on the beach during the action...why? XD

Thats what you get for not listening to a person that's been in combat with the enemy and obviously has way more knowledge ...

getting slightly bored with this.


Yeah the script, the direction, and editing makes this series really boring and predictable.

How funny that the horrible soldier, Sasuke, has failed to kill that guy twice now. All he seems to be good at is submitting to orders. He has no brain and no particular other skill except being able to survive. It would be nice if he died.

Way better episode than previous ones, they can actualy make it a believable mecha with good drama, despite the poor animation at diverse parts.

That lambda driver at the end with the missile was pretty crazy though.

This series was probably more original and groundbreaking in 2002. It’s showing its age somewhat, but never mind, I like it anyway.

Meh...it's back to the main storyline, but theye're just repeating what has gone before. The same mega-bad-guy is back and it's the MC's job to fight him...again.

The American soldiers were obviously going to be the red shirts of the episode (except the girl, of course).

Basically, the episode was one long battle scene with a nothing new.
