    Episode 46




    - - - - - - -



    It looks like Orga finally might have got prosthetic balls installed to replace the ones he lost at an unknown point of the series, so now we are just missing an artificial brain to replace the one McGillis has lost, and Mika's mysteriously absent skills also need to be found. Then we are ready for a final battle. Julietta, on the other hand, is only adding skills to her repertoire, such as breathing vacuum successfully.

    These last eps have been highly annoying, doubly so because the show was so great for such a long time. I can't understand why this ending portion couldn't be handled appropriately. Nothing McGillis does seem to serve any sensible purpose (although I'd really love to be proven wrong and this is only a part of his grand plan). Mika, the best Gundam pilot in the galaxy, couldn't do shit during the whole battle. I do wonder if the script writer suddenly changed.

    might be that they had enough story for 40 episodes and needed to make some filler/drama to prolong the series...

    now once again they are between the sword and the rock, hope the remaining turbines come help for the finale for some more manpower...

    i can understand orga starting to feel the weight of the leadership and slowly losing confidence only to be slapped in the face by the reality of things... IMO this part was well done as long as he keeps his cool now...

    regarding mika getting beaten up by jullieta :\... seems like she will get a power up by the "human willing power" which will make it even harder for mika to fight her which i dont like... just for the lolz let her come back speaking high and mighty only for mika to dispose her in one move while trying to fight someone else...

    This reminds me of an old series I was so fond of, but ended badly. One character was built up in such a cool and powerful way that the only way to make them lose was to invent something stupid and somewhat inconsistent. This is what we got today.

    That very winning move Mika pulled on the girl should have been the first thing to happen in their encounter. Since when should a human blade-whip be powerful enough to counter the tail from a mobile armour?

    And as far as I'm concerned, piloting by neuro-linked devices should be neuro-link only. Using your hands shouldn't even matter.

    Let's just say that Jullietta is one of the strongest normal pilots. Even if Mika is OP, her job was to stall him and he didn't really seem to fully realize that at first.

    Now that I think about it, I reckon Mika has also been kind of lost of late when Orga has been so ballless. They work properly when Orga concoct crazy gambler's plans and Mika is the one who pulls off the most brazen parts. Mika isn't really a thinker or a tactician, a strategist all the less, so when Orga is all the time only holding him back, he's probably nerfed 50%.

    When Orga asked Mika to pull back after the chaff, I totally expected Mika to charge in - because that is what Mika does.

    Episode 47

    -----------------





    The baby actually happened.

    Holy. Shit.





    I can settle with the fake ID thing. Eliot is only after defeating Tekkadan in name anyway. He's not actually after their lives. The question would be whether (1) the reformed Gjallahorn, and (2) neo-Tekkadan living quietly would be enough to satisfy the earlier goals of preventing child soldiers.

    The beginning of S1 clearly showed the brutality towards Space Rats and unfair treatment towards Colonists, while S2's first ep highlighted this to be an ongoing problem.

    On a smaller scale Tekkadan finding peace would be great, but I feel that we still need something more along the lines of a worldy change.

    Why are they so hell-bent on ruining this show? Just when I thought Orga couldn't fall any lower and he found again his long lost balls, he's actually now betraying his own words in the same fricking episode. I thought at first that phone call was a part of a nefarious plot, but it turns out it really was Orga trying to lick Rustal's dirty boots. Although if this show finally gets to the final battle, Rustal underestimating Orga might serve Tekkadan well. Assuming Orga tries to fight and not flee and hide.

    At least they now have a lot of spare parts incoming. They just need to remove the biological matter from inside of them. Rustal also got a bit too satisfied with his own power. He should have bombarded the Tekkadan base from the orbit, not send in ground troops. He really does want a video of Gjallarhorn beating Tekkadan directly.

    more on that, so far the only thing that beated tekkadan so far was the long range piercing arrow that we have not seen yet used on land...

    RIP Orga.

    To tell you the truth I don't think that driveby made sense. If their plan or location was known there, it shouldn't be just a driveby, but a proper slaughter to make sure no one gets out. Killing one or two Tekkadan on civilian streets doesn't accomplish anything.


    I was also expecting McGillis to sabotage the Calamity War tunnel after he heard about it to ensure Tekkadan fights with him. Using their escape as a means to "draw in Rustal" doesn't make sense either. That guy's never touched a mobile suit the entire time. He just needs to command from orbit.

    Death flags were obnoxiously obvious. I guess Mika will now live for revenge because he really has nothing else.

    Spunky.

    Besides a kid on the way. Didn't he say that if it wasn't for Orga then he'd be living for Atra?

    Orga had a death flag hanging above him since the first season, but he didn't manage to find his death back then. Now he was killed by random noname gangsters. Bill's criticism isn't necessarily correct because those men were obviously sent by that Nobliss scumbag. So, they were nothing but hired guns scared of facing Tekkadan. I reckon Nobliss has kept Kuudelia's office on an eye, and sent the henchmen when movement was detected. However, such low class criminals aren't likely to perform a thorough operation. They shot from a seemingly safe distance and then fled the moment one of them was gunned down.

    I hope we will finally get the final Mika kicking ass battle. I wouldn't be surprised if he, and most of the Tekkadan crew, died, and we got a sort of second generation ending with Atra raising the kid. Gjallarhorn ought to lose the fleet (and naturally Rustal and his staff), for there to be a different tomorrow. Someone else than McGillis should be guiding it, though. A power worshipper isn't a proper person to lead armed forces.

    So that's why they made Orga into such a pussy recently. They didn't want riots to break out when they kill a cool guy, so they pussify him first.

    I actually want McGillis to be the next ruler. He is obsessed with power, yet at the same time he acts with sense. As long as he gets to keep the top spot, I imagine he will be a sensible administrator as proven by his past achievements. His mindset is also relatively forward thinking and non-discriminatory.

    Spunky.

    death flags were all over the place :\... just "waiting" right next to the car in a street with no movement was just the icing on the cake...

    orga had his badass moment there defending the little kid, if only he survived he would be the on the level of nick fury but everyone knows about the plan so there is no reason to keep him alive...

    seriusly i hope that now mika goes full berserker on barbatos and finally losing every single part of his body to the machine, just so he can move only in the gundam and thus being just a "justice machine"

    Mika will probably lose everything to Barbatos. I just hope he doesn't die. He has two lovely ladies and a baby (?) waiting for him, even if he can only fondle them near the gundam.

    Spunky.

    With Orga dead, Mika ought to be through with holding back, so who's going to stop him now? Gaelio's Ein-zombie machine is scrap metal, after all. That leaves Julietta, but I don't want to believe this show will present the kind of bullshit twice that we already suffered once. Basically Gjallarhorn can only keep throwing troops (and illegal weapons) at Mika, caring nothing about casualties, to simply tire out him and Barbatos. Fortunately for Gjallarhorn Rustal is the kind of guy for whom both methods and friendly casualties are meaningless as long as he wins.

    I'd like to see Mika go after officers next, though, as it's meaningless to fight the grunts. Of course it would also be nice to see the Turbine ladies appear as reinforcements at a crucial moment. After all, this show can't end with the folks fleeing to Earth. It's going to end in a big battle where Rustal will perish, and that Nobliss scumbag as well, of course. It would be great if Kuudelia shot Nobliss. This is the kind of show where nobody needs to stay pure.

    It's been a while now since character development and plot felt right. McGillis losing makes sense given Ein's number advantage (both in minds and grunt numbers).

    I was half expecting Mika to be lost and half expecting Mika to fight for his baby last week, but of course this is the correct answer to their bromance - follow Orga's last order to the grave. As you rightly say Kraco, Julietta better become fodder next episode like the fodder that she is. No one is a match for Mika now. His downfall should be from exhaustion and lack of supplies/armour/weapon if at all.

    Assuming the ending is decent, this will go down as my favourite Gundam easily.

    Pretty sure Mika is going to die like the rest of the older generation. To pave the way for the next one and for the ones that escape.

    HS - Episode 50 (END)


    -----------------------------------------------------



















    And there it is. One of the best Gundam series ever. The story is character-focused, well-rounded and Iok is finally dead.
