I get the message AGE wanted to convey; how pointless it is for two groups to fight long after their original reason to fight is gone, but... I'm sick and tired of seeing that. Am I just getting too old for this stuff? Anyways, since I wasn't happy with the point of this episode, it'll show in my list of nitpicks/stupid questions.
- Yes Don, Flit caused SOOO much damage to the city. Think about how much money it's going to cost to fix the burn marks on your walls.
- "Yes, Don is right!" Please stop saying that...
- The Don really can't see the big picture. Yes I know, that's the whole point of his character, but it takes an exceptional amount of stupidity to ignore the UE and only concern yourself with Euba.
- Pedobear should take some notes on how Vargas picks up kids. Truck beats van.
- It's not easy to be excited about the Euba attacking when last episode showed they can barely scratch each other's paint jobs.
- The Gundam skipping about was pretty lulzy.
- Largan exists only to be a punching bag.
- Vargas is easily the most powerful character in this show. Last episode he drives that trailer from the Diva to the city in seconds. And now he goes from exclaiming "The Spaceport!" to booting up the AGE system in a flash. Once Vargas is mass produced, we'll put an end to the UE in no time!
One good thing I can say for this episode though is it reinforced my belief in some of those theories floating around the web regarding the UE; that they're not this big threat Flit and Grodek make them out to be. When their only form of opposition was the Genoace, it's safe to say that the UE would've already taken over if they were going to. Yet all they've done is intermittent attacks and wait around in colonies, while when they do make a large attack, all it really accomplishes is push the Gundam into developing further (from being created, to gaining the DOD's Rifle, to gaining the Titus form). It reminds me of Super Robot Wars, how Dr. Bian Zoldark created an entire war just to push the Earth to develop stronger weapons in anticipation of alien threats. Flit and Grodek are mainly concerned with the UE out of a sense of revenge; had the attack on Nora not occurred, I wonder if they'd still be as driven to defeat the UE as they are now.
In the end, all we can do is keep watching to see what the UE are all about. It's just putting up with all the other crap is making this less worthwhile than it could be, especially when I've already watched an episode of Fate/Zero before this.
