That stupid Gauron, stupid guy probably still isn't dead, highly doubt it. Well, I liked the ending scene though, it was rather cute yet sad at the same time, x| wah.

these were probably the most intense 3 eps I have ever seen! I ranks up there with anything else when it comes to mecha action.

The deaths were pretty scary... Gray's AS was stabbed up against the rocks with all that blood running down! Yikes

I was surprised the entire company got wiped out, especially Gray being crucified. Are we to assume Gauron is definitely dead this time? It looked like Sousuke was standing over his flaming wreckage, but only for a couple of seconds.

The whole group died but Sousuke survived. So painful..

I have to say that if gauron survived the last few times, he will survive again.

This episode turned out pretty much how I expected it to go... all action and not much else. The final battle scene felt incredibly rushed, it was five minutes of build up then a typical quick finish. I wasn't expecting the entire team to die though(save Sousuke) so that was a bit surprising. The ending also had a bit of emotion (that wasn't cheesy) due to the previous statement... as well as being cute at the same time with Chidori waiting for Sousuke.

I agree with NeloDeath completely. And about that Gauron guy, I want him to die and be replaced with a cooler baddy, but it'll never happen.

Loved the twist at the end. It's sad that Sousuke didn't have more of a chance to communicate with his friend. I wish the unit would have listened to Sousuke earlier on. :/

This arc is better then the one before, and definitely a lot weaker then the first arc... Can't really feel the intensity...

This show's not too bad so far, might give it 7/10 if the next arc is good.

Eh, last arc was better. I couldn't quite care enough about the new characters to get emotional about their sacrifices. Ending was quite weird too. :<

I really liked this ark. The pacing, the landscapes, the fights, the emotions, it all felt like the ending to a good series, rather than a random ark in the middle. I also want to throw out that I'm probably the last guy in the world to call anime moments cute, but damn if that ending wasn't adorable!

I liked the ending of this arc. Kinda annoying that Gauron won't die. Guess something has to be saved for the last episode.

This was the best episode so far, overall a great ending to an okay arc. The fights were very well directed and the red mecha was amazing. Still, no motives why his friend went dark-side.

The arc was okay and the ending was very emotional...I think a tear dropped when I saw Gray dyeing...

The only thing I don't understand is...Why didn't Sousuke used Lambda Driver in his fight with Zaid? Maybe those american soldiers could've been saved...ore at least Gray could've been saved =(

at the end when Sousuke said "no problem", i think he did not think so in his heart, all his teammates died...

oh i remember this episode, i dont know how anyone can think this episode was boring, this was a really sad episode, and it was intense cause you didnt know who would live aside from souske, but i wanted some of the team to live and none of them did

plus this does end up having a affect on souske for this badass finale

Pretty good finish 2 this arc. Sad everyone had to get wiped out, luckily Sousuke walked away with the nuclear weapon still alive.

This was a Good arc, but...

Best arc was the airplane hijacking....gauron fight in the woods.... they( Sousuke, Kaname,kurz) go all out and Kaname shows her tru "whispered powers" &amp; how to beat gauron.

I liked the arc with Tessa and everything too... at times.

The fillers have made me cringe X(

If what Sousuke went through happens a few times, the survivors is bound to be 'emotionless'.

What an extremely stupid unthoughtout self-destruction. LOL

Though this episode was in my opinion the best one so far so I will let that slide. I really liked the battle scenes in this episode and the ending was very well done! :D

That was intense. I'm glad the whole company was wiped out - I want Souske's character to get darker.

i kept wondering throughout the episode why sousuke didnt just use the lambda driver throughout this episode, then he finally uses it (and presumably still has it active mere seconds after killing gauron) and then hes worried the gattling gun is going to kill him?

correct me if im wrong but wouldnt that just utterly turbofuck the red AS and leave sousuke's unharmed?

grays death was a bit unexpected though.

^ This... and the typical shounen gauron vs sousuke over in seconds without seeing anything lol. If Gauron's still alive after this, not gonna be higher than a 6 this show

that disturbed me so much... like why the fk would you save your Lambda Driver when you have it and Gauron is also using it all the time... I don't get the logic behind it. But I liked this arc a lot still, so many deaths though... I hoped Gray would survive.. but nope..

That was a pretty good episode, albeit a little sad/depressing. Since I saw someone else give a rating thus far, I'd say I would give FMP a solid 8 right now.

So everyone died except Sosuke ? Damn.. Gauron is probably still alive too, Sosuke has a terrible habit of not making sure that fucker is dead when Sosuke beats him.

Gauron better be dead this time, the deaths of all the soldiers trying to fight him wouldn't mean anything otherwise. It was so sad that the guy who tried to self destruct failed and even Gray died. I liked Gray :( Must feel really bad for Sousuke.

Best episode out of the three. While it was sad too see all of Sousuke's team die, their awful personalities dragged the story down a bit. I do love how they ended this with Sousuke simply sitting next to Kaname.

Man, rewatching this episode really felt different this time around...

I really felt the dread and despair of the moment as one by one Sosuke's team got killed...

I had forgotten just how much I hated Gauron, but I guess that made him a good villain.

Great episode.

well that dudes self destruct death meant and did nothing. Im also shocked everyone died I thought at least gray would make it.This was a pretty sad arc. Also bringing this dude from sousukes past felt pointless as he had no character and his reason to be a baddy is "he didint want to lose this time".
