Gundam 00 09

Gundam 00

As expected from Lockon.

Whew, after the mess that was episode eight, episode nine redeems my trust in this series a bit.

Celestial Being finally gets in to a pinch of their own, and frankly, seeing the Gundams kick ass out of everyone was beginning to get boring, so this makes for a nice change and most of all, this episode portrays them as more “human” as well too. Wonder how will Sumeragi will fare against Sergei, who seems to be master of sneaky but effective tactics.

Also, it’s revealed that the Gundam Meisters current names are just codenames, quite logical considering the illogical names that some of them have. I appreciated the character development between Lockon, or Neil, his real name is, and Felt. I do hope they’ll be able to handle it better than…uh, Setsuna and Marina’s relationship, which is definitely screwed up.

One part I still don’t get though, is how Saji and Louise fit in to all this. I get they’re trying to show a contrast between the “normal people” and the ones who are fighting… but really, they seem just to be there for the sheer comic relief that Louise provides with her abuse of Saji :P.

    Gundam’s also known for having the heroes change to a stronger model once or twice throughout the entire series. It makes me wonder when their current Gundams become obsolete. ^_^

    You know for sure Setsuna will have a new model soon. Well, maybe not, since we’re placed in a more realistic era (300 years from now on), the only way they could get new GUNDAM on this series is when, indeed, the AEU, the UNION or HRL (like on the next episode), manage to capture a GUNDAM, so they’ll need a new unit. Time will tell the answer.

    300 years from now, Gundam will stray so far from its original concept that it will be just another moe moe show.

    Not that there is anything wrong with that… (Ninomiya-kun :3)

    I don’t watch Gundam 00, but first thought of seeing those screenshots:

    “Wa~wa~wa~wasuremono……” (Enters room)

    “WHOA!!!…”
    (Pauses for ten seconds)

    “Goyukkuri! (Please enjoy yourselves!)” (Runs away)
