Summary:

With Alejandro keeping him at bay with the Alvatore’s beam cannons, Setsuna follows Lasse’s advice to shoot at the pieces of the container that the Alvatore is still holding on to. Unfortunately, the Alvatore gets through the subsequent explosion unscathed. Across the battlefield, Sergei and Soma are searching for the damaged Kyrios that is hiding behind an asteroid. It is during this lull in the battle that Allelujah tells Hallelujah that he’s also alive and that he can’t die until he knows the meaning of this fighting. Realizing what Allelujah is saying, Hallelujah takes off his helmet and pulls back his hair to reveal both eyes. This allows both sides of him to participate at the same time, and despite the damage to the Kyrios, he’s able to take on both his opponents at once. Alejandro meanwhile sends the Alvatore’s GN Fangs after the Exia, so Lasse has Setsuna dock the Gundam with the GN Arms. Combined, they’re able to destroy all the GN Fangs and avoid being hit by the Alvatore’s main particle cannon. They then charge at it and succeed in slicing off one of its claws and shooting off the second. However, Alejandro responds by firing all the cannons on the Alvatore, and several of these shots hit the GN Arms, causing a big explosion in the cockpit that Lasse is in.

With the GN Arms taking more and more damage, Setsuna charges the docked Exia at the Alvatore and drives his blade through its GN field. He manages to take out the field, but an explosion rips through the GN Arms soon after, leaving Setsuna to take on his opponent in just the Exia. This hardly holds him back though, and he proceeds to slice up the Alvatore, causing it to explode. Back in the other battle, Hallelujah tells Soma that she’s not a perfect super-soldier like she thinks she is and compares her to an animal acting on instinct. He feels that the fusion of reflexes and thought is what a super-soldier should be, and he then activates the Kyrios’ Trans-Am system. This grants him the speed to start slicing the limbs off of Soma’s GN-X, however Sergei protects her when Hallelujah goes for the kill. Soma uses the opportunity to shoot at the Kyrios, knocking it out of Trans-Am mode and sending it adrift. She doesn’t try to finish it off though because she’s concerned about Sergei and opens his cockpit to check on him instead. Sergei thinks that she shouldn’t worry about him and go fight, but Soma declares that she can’t because she feels that if she lost him, then she’d be all alone. As for Allelujah, the right side of his face was hurt by a cockpit explosion, and when he sees Soma with Sergei, he recognizes her as someone named Marie.

Meanwhile, a still-uninjured Alejandro brings out the mobile suit that was inside of his mobile armor and attacks the Exia. Setsuna accuses him of distorting Aeolia Schenberg’s plan, but Alejandro replies by saying that things are going according to plan – it just involves him in the leading role now. When Setsuna questions what he’s after, Alejandro explains that he wanted Celestial Being to ruin the world through military intervention so that he could influence the world in its revival. He thinks that Setsuna doesn’t belong in this new world though and unleashes a particle cannon blast that forces Setsuna to activate the Exia’s Trans-Am system. Setsuna now believes that he’s found the culprit behind the world being warped, and when faced against the Alvatore’s GN field, he recalls how Lockon once told him that the Exia was equipped with a solid blade so that it could combat GN fields. Their initial plan had included fighting with Gundams, and Lockon had said that if something unexpected should happened, then Setsuna would be their trump card. Because of this, Setsuna drives his blade straight into the Alvatore’s GN field and succeeds in taking it out. Setsuna now believes that he’s Gundam again and uses all of his blades to incapacitate the Alvatore.

As he sits in his damaged mobile suit, Alejandro gets a message from Libbons calling him a good clown. Libbons reveals that this was his plan and suggests that Alejandro should leave the unified world to him. Alejandro is pissed off, but he dies moments later when the Alvatore explodes. Setsuna, on the other hand, barely gets a chance to catch his breath before yet another mobile suit appears: a Flag equipped with a pseudo-GN Drive. Its pilot is Graham, and when he messages Setsuna to declare his intent to get revenge for Howard and Daryl, Setsuna identifies him from when they met back in Azadistan. Recognizing Setsuna too, Graham comments on how they’re connected by the red string of fate and compare his feelings to those of love, but he feels that going beyond love is hate. During all this, he and Setsuna start slicing each other’s mobile suits apart, and they eventually charge straight at each other. The two succeed in driving their weapons into the other’s mobile suits, and this leads to a large explosion. Meanwhile, an injured Tieria decides that their plan will continue on and ejects the GN Drive from the Nadleeh. After having done this, he feels that he can finally go to where Lockon is.

Also floating adrift in space is the Kyrios, and Allelujah questions if Hallelujah knew about Soma being Marie. Hallelujah thinks that Allelujah would not have been able to fight if he knew, but he feels that it’s the same either way. He then tells Allelujah that he’s going on ahead, and Allelujah suddenly realizes that Hallelujah is gone. Sometime later, Marina reads a message from Setsuna that he had written before the battle. In it, he talks about learning the meaning of fighting and questions why the world is so warped, why people are unconsciously malicious, and why they hurt each other. He thought that he’d have answers if he met her since she’s on a different path than him but wants the same thing, and so he kept seeking an answer with his Gundam. He now lies unconscious as the Exia floats in space.

Four years later, in A.D. 2312, Saji writes a message to Louise – something he hasn’t done in a while. It’s been two years since he heard from her, and he informs her that he’ll be working in space starting from this year. Though he’s experienced a lot of sadness, he’s also realized a small dream, and so he wants Louise to realize another one. Saji is waiting for her in space, and while he’s in the middle of his job, he sees a trail of GN particles in the distance. He knows that it’s not a Federation unit because the particle color is different, and he soon figures out that it’s a Gundam. In this future, the United Nations has become the Earth Federation, and all of its member countries have dismantled their militaries so that they can form the Earth Federation peacekeeping force instead. On the Celestial Being asteroid base, Ian reports to Wang Liu Mei and Hong Long about rolling out each of their new mobile suits. She asks to see the first generation unit, so Ian brings out the 0 Gundam and talks about removing its GN Drive. However, it didn’t match, and Ian wonders if the Exia’s will work as he looks at the hanger door for the 00 Gundam. This 00 Gundam is a unit that Wang Liu Mei thinks will change the world.

Four Years Later

Gundam 00   25   31 Gundam 00   25   32 Gundam 00   25   33
Gundam 00   25   34 Gundam 00   25   35 Gundam 00   25   36
Gundam 00   25   37 Gundam 00   25   38 Gundam 00   25   39
Gundam 00   25   40 Gundam 00   25   41 Gundam 00   25   42
Gundam 00   25   43 Gundam 00   25   44 Gundam 00   25   45

So at the end of this first half, it looks like just Alejandro and maybe Lasse were added to the list of dead characters. I’m surprised they didn’t do more to make it seem like Setsuna is dead – showing him floating unconscious in a Gundam adrift in space pretty much guarantee that he’ll survive, especially since Tieria seemed to have had the same fate yet turned out okay in the four-years-after epilogue (he’s even sporting a Lockon-esque haircut). Actually, that may be a bad example because it’s not guaranteed that Tieria is alive. There’s a person listed in the credits as Regene Rejetta, voiced by Paku Romi, and speculation is that this character could be the new Tieria. I listened to the “hmph” he/she made in that scene with Louise, and it sounded female and different from normal. That, plus the process of elimination due to how Paku Romi’s voice is very distinctive – she does a lot of young male voices like Hitsugaya from Bleach – makes it entirely possible (even probable) that this is her.

On the whole, I think the production staff did a pretty good job of setting us up for the second half of this series with the stuff in the epilogue. At the very least, they made me curious about Libbons’ harem, about the aforementioned Tieria stuff, and about if there’s going to be a Zeon to go with the new Earth Federation. I found it a little odd though that, in the epilogue, they played the scene where Shirin appears to be leaving Marina, but in the voiceover, it was Nena talking with Wang Liu Mei about the world changing. That left me confused for a moment because of the disconnect between what was going on on-screen and what was being said. At least we now know that Nena is probably serving Wang Liu Mei. The other thing that bothered me was how they incorporated Graham into the episode. His fight with Setsuna was exciting to watch, but it felt really tacked on – like they realized too late that they needed to do something so that they could make Graham the masked character in the second half. It was amplified by how there were only five minutes between when it looked like he died and when he appeared again with the mask. I’m hoping that he’ll get some better character development in the future.

Regardless, I still enjoyed the ending and can’t wait to see the continuation in October. Fortunately though, there’s CODE GEASS to look forward to next week. :D

    All right so the person at the end is definitely not Tieria in voice, but there is no way that the similarity in appearance and attitude (with the self satisfied grunt at the end there) is a coincidence.

    So why is Tieria a woman? The longer Lockon style hair suggest some kind of tribute towards his fellow pilot. After watching the last few episodes it seems reasonable that he had a thing for the guy. Maybe the attraction lead to a decision to switch teams.

    While I find this gender swap pretty disturbing, he\she\it is a cyborg making these more traditional human sentiments irrelevant. Tieria was already damn androgynous in the first season.

    So Grahm’s the anti-setsuna apparently. I wonder what kind of suit livone is gonna give him for the climax? I hope they don’t give us the same fang heavy final bosses like in seed. It kinda clashes with his whole flag thing so we may be safe.

    Hallelujah is dead brain damage ended him.

    It seems quite possible that Louise will join CB, which may be even more bizzare than what happened to Tieria.

    Most importantly though Gundam 0 is without a doubt the Gundam that saved setsuna as a child. It’s the Gundam prototype. Now there is no way that Gundam 00 is that old. Just based on the look of the head or realize that the namesake of the show will be cutting-edge technology. This said the 00 is symbolic of a new age of Gundam will begin with this unit.

    Its been bothering me how much 0′s GN particle output resemled the Nena’s Throne’s since the first time is saw. But after seeing her spliced into the scene where 0 is revealed, it is clear that was no coincidence. Apparently Wang Liu Mi came through, for one of the thrones that is, Nena will be the pilot of this the 5th solar furnace. (20 bucks says she and Maria dont get along)

    Finally, why only 2 gundams at least 3 furnaces survive (probably 5 all together)? i have a few possible answers
    1) There may be other numbered Gundams in the same era as 0 that will be used. this would explain the time trials comment by the engineer and the stream green GN particles.
    Also lets not forget that this is gundam and in gundam if you piloted a gundam last season you get a new one this season. While in my opinion tieria and allelujah are pretty useless (without alternate personality / veda gundam disabling weapon) they will almost undoubtedly be back. Together with saji thats 5 pilots
    2)I’m just throwing this out there but we dont really know the inner workings of a solar furnace and if they can be dismantled maybe they can be fused together? (he’ll they could even use fake GN particles to extend trans am for all we know) This would help explain how the 00 could go up against the EF with an army of fake GN drives

  • March 31, 2008 at 6:48 amDragoon87

    Have anyone not noticed that what Tiera(or the one that looks like him), after the timeskip, is wearing something similar to what the EF pilots were wearing??? Check the top part! You can notice the same small silver piece of metal on the top of the uniform!!

  • March 31, 2008 at 3:08 pmLittle Cat

    Was Nena working with CB?
    I think she works for Wang Liu Min but not CB. (- -)a

    Honestly, I don’t like Graham’s Mask too much.
    I hope he’ll change it.

  • March 31, 2008 at 4:55 pmVassago

    heres my take, at the end of season 2, Gundam 00 will some how fall into the wrong hands piloted by the “final” villian (whoever that may be, i hope its Graham) VS Gundam 0 piloted by Setsuna for sure.

    That will be the climax, Setsuna after screaming and yelling of being the “GUNDAM” gets to pilot the underdog with the “original” Gundam 0 into an epic battle

  • March 31, 2008 at 6:05 pmramiel_salbazier

    WOW!

  • March 31, 2008 at 6:40 pmGrimjaww

    @ Dragoon87, now that you mention it does seem as if Tieria is wearing a earth Federation suit. So there can be two possibilities, after the battle the AEU or HRL found him and re-programmed him once they found out that he was a cyborg, or he is just a spy, i mean how else does CB get all their info?

  • March 31, 2008 at 7:54 pmrandom_asian_guy

    uh oh graham with a mask and gundams that look remarkably similar to the original gundam…im seeing a trend here…..

  • March 31, 2008 at 7:58 pmjin

    i rewatched it and it looks like the new Tieria is definetly rocking an EF uniform

    makes me think he’s undercover which makes sense because i couldn’t figure out why he would be together with Louise

    I’d say shes either going into space to get her hand repaired or she just did and now shes to find Saji after 4 years. I bet they’ve come a ways with treating GN particle injuries since they started mass producing furnaces. more to the point, there’s no way she could handle seeing Saji till she’s been repaired

  • March 31, 2008 at 8:08 pmplant

    Anybody else think Innovator is probably livonze’s newly reprogrammed evil Veda

    He probably used it to create those “clones” (all the same height)

    I can’t wait till he start using them like chess pieces i bet they can communicate telepathically around the globe like when tieria uses Veda

  • March 31, 2008 at 8:13 pmMax

    I think the writers are done with the coordinator thing for at least a season and i don’t blame them

    Liconze and his duplicates are probably all cyborgs

  • March 31, 2008 at 9:42 pmZellie

    That’s not Tieria. Mizuchima said it in an interview… “The person with Louise that looks like Tieria, is not Tieria at all.”

    it was the best gundam serie ever… until alejandro corner killed aeolia schenberg

  • March 31, 2008 at 11:37 pmDularc

    Ok, that was definetyl Tieria next to Louise, the Revene you wrote about was most probably her: http://randomc.net/image/Gundam%2000/Gundam%2000%20-%2025%20-%20Large%2035.jpg

  • April 1, 2008 at 8:48 amBoxOffice

    Wad… So many good guys died and bad guys live… Just kill Patrick already. Ace pilot my ass. With such a losing situation, Celestial Being will have to have some secret weapons stashed. So typical Gundam story. The next season they will have some extremely powerful MS. Probably with Trans-Am time limit removed. They should have let the story to be developed slowly. One episode Gundam kick asses. Next, they got trashed. Geass is ten, hundred times better. I hope 00 second season will change my opinion on this series.

  • April 1, 2008 at 2:38 pmZellie

    @ Dularc: No. The woman in the picture you show is Marina Ismail’s secretary. The woman next to Louise is not Tieria.

    This is from Mizuchima’s interview:

    ・最後にルイスと一緒に出てきたティエリア似の人物はティエリアではない。
    字幕だと→ (リジェネ)ふっ。
    スタッフロールには「リジェネ・レジェッタ」。
    声優は「鋼の錬金術師」のエド役・朴さん。
    The person with Louise at the end that looks like Tieria isn’t Tieria at all.
    From the subtitle -> (Regene) Hmph.
    The staff roll listed her as “Regene Legetta”
    Seiyuu is Paku who did the role of Ed in FMA.

  • April 1, 2008 at 5:50 pmWumbo

    I know its a bit farfetched….
    But what if the guy with the tattoo isn’t ali al?
    This is extremely farfetched but what if thats actually setsuna?
    Similar side burns, and i dnt remember seeing him topless, so he cud
    also have a tattoo similar, cud of been forced to of got one by ali al wen
    he was a kid.
    Farfetched i know, but its just a theory, but i definitly saw ali al get
    blow up.
    Just a thought…

    Hmm scrap my earlier farfetched thought…
    Rewatched it, the grunt doesnt sound like Setsuna…

  • April 1, 2008 at 10:38 pmHei

    @Persona0
    Doesn’t he look more like Graham then Lockon…?
    I’m pretty sure they killed of Lockon since he has a twin or a clone he’ll probably oppose the gundam or join them.
    I’m most confused on Tieria….. like wth? Like I knew he was having gender issues and I just presumed he was a android type of being that was made with both gender but so someone said the female side died while the male lived on? I don’t know the voice is very very very different though. Then there’s the status of the CB who’s alive and who’s dead and where every one is I mean if they have an epilogue why didn’t they just show us Allelujah, Sumragi, Felt, and Lasse(if he’s alive that is..)
    and we all know Setsuna is alive since someone here posted a link a while ago showing us how he looks 4 years later
    Then there’s the O? Gundam that’s having troubles with GN Drives not fitting him and Exia which is still present although if it’s still unknown if he’s fixed at this point.

  • April 1, 2008 at 11:35 pmRagna

    If that’s the case, I think it might be the other way around, where the male side disappeared while the female side now has dominance over the body, especially if everyone is commenting on “Tieria’s” new girly voice ;o

  • April 1, 2008 at 11:38 pmRagna

    Also, it seems to wild for Regene to not be Tieria: their hair style, eye design are all the same @.@

  • April 2, 2008 at 10:16 pmHaro 00

    @Ragna
    Well, I wouldn’t call them having exactly the same hair style, but their hair and eye colors as well as facial appearances and even glasses are almost identical.

    Tieria: http://randomc.net/image/Gundam%2000/Gundam%2000%20-%2024%20-%20Large%2004.jpg
    Regene: http://randomc.net/image/Gundam%2000/Gundam%2000%20-%2025%20-%20Large%2039.jpg

    Here’s my theory:

    Either:

    (a) Presumed that Tieria is a cyborg, he may have similar capability as Virtue/Nadleeh (which means ‘Two-Spirit’): “he” has a female “spirit” living inside such that he can “morph” into a person with feminine appearance (for him to infilterate into the Earth Federation?) or vice versa.

    or

    (b) Regene is Tieria’s twin sister.

    or

    (c) ??????????

    gaaah!!! can’t believe that they killed so many characters in this gundam… gosh… lucky that there is a second epi.. $#@!%$#%$…. the second one better be good…!!

  • April 2, 2008 at 11:52 pmChikinyx

    @Kagekyuubi, the mobile suits featured in 00V are just variations of the original units. They won’t get any airtime in the 2nd season. Just look at Eins, it is already been trashed.

    They’re just upgrade “plans” that will not push through storywise.

  • April 3, 2008 at 1:43 pmplant

    I like the comparison of tieria to his gundam which does appear to have both male and female forms

    While, it is impossible to be sure whether the character in the end is a clone or simply tieria, i think it seems to be an odd leap of faith to say that in a show prime with fake deaths a “non-explosion” death could realistically occur to a main character

    I see no reason that the person in that elevator shares tieria’s memory, and is wearing an EF suit

  • April 3, 2008 at 5:10 pmVercingetorix

    Holy crap tieria got a twin sister?!!! Or he change his gender. With all the meister status unknown except for Lockon K.I.A. I think in season 2 they might put another new meister beside the meisters in season 1

    @Rosen
    Thanks for quoting the pic posted in my blog.

    Someone had mentioned about this interview with Mizushima a while back. Anyway, here’s the interview dialog.

    [Other than the claim that Graham is 'dead' (translation?), which I don't believe at all, the rest of things Mizushima sounds interesting.]

    水島のインタがメディアに二ページ
    Mizushima’s Interview

    -では、ロックオンは本当に死んじゃったんですか?
    -Is Lockon really dead ?

    水島:残念ながら。
    Mizushima :- Yes, I’m afraid so,

    -本当に!?だって、すごい人気で、ファンのみんな、号泣してますよ。あ
    の23話には!
    -Really !? He has a lot of fans and you left all of them heartbroken at Episode 23 !

    水島:それは有難い話だけど、それとこれとは話は別だよ
    Mizushima :- I appreciate that. But those are rally 2 different matters altogether.

    -チッ…。墓地で見た「もうひとりのロックオン」は誰だったんでしょう?
    -Damn you….But who’s the other Lockon that we say in the graveyard scene ?

    水島:まぁ、あのシーンはどっちがロックオンだったのかという噂もでてい
    るようですが
    それも含めて…
    Mizushima :- Oh, that scene ? But who’s really Lockon in that scene. That is something I’ll have to let other fiigured that out.

    -ロックオンのハロは、ネーナの持っていたハロとルーツは同じなんですか
    ?80年前の
    回想でも出てきてるってことは、ハロはいつ誰が作ったんだ?
    Lockon’s Haro and Neena’s Halo, are they stemmed from the same root ? From that flashback 80 years ago, who really made them ?

    水島:80年前の回想で見つけた木星探査船、あそこにあったのが最初のハロ
    かどうかも
    わからないので、なんともいえないところだね。もっとずっと前からあった
    かもしれないし。ただ 、
    少なくともCBにはいっぱいあったということじゃないかな。トレミーにいる
    のはオレンジを「お 兄様」
    「兄者」などと予備、そのオレンジが紫を「兄さん」と呼ぶのだから、この
    紫がこの中では一番
    古いのかなという気はしますけどね…この辺もセカンドで明かされるかもし
    れないので
    Mizushima :- In that Jupiter exploration ship 80 years prior, we can’t really tell who’s the first Haro and there’s nothing to prove it. On top of it, that’s a really long time back. But when you think about when in CB, the Orange Haro had a lot of phrase for “Brothers” and it refers to the Purple one as “Brotherd” and that perhaps says that the Purple one was the older Haro, which I say made clear in second season.

    -ティエリアは人間なんですか?
    -Is Tieria a human

    水島:ナイショです
    Mizushima :- That’s a secret

    -人間じゃないとしたら何者?
    Then what is him ?

    水島:ナイショです
    Mizushima :- That’s a secret

    -そういうと返ってアヤシイ
    There’s really something going on basing on your replies

    水島:ナイショです
    Mizushima :- That’s a secret

    男なの?女なの?
    -At least tell us his gender.

    水島:ナイショです。だからね。この人が何者なのかも、セカンドにかかっ
    てくる
    ことなんでもうちょっと楽しみに待っててよ
    Mizushima :- That’s a secret. In regrads to what and who he really is, wait for the second season.

    Found some more elsewhere…

    [水島監督インタビューの一部]
    ・「00」ではガンダムが正義の味方ではない、というのを貫こうと思っていた。
    ・なんだかんだ言って、CBの武力介入もまたテロリスト集団のテロ行為には違いない。だから、その行為に対する代償というのは払わなければいけない。
    ・「咎を受ける」ことはファーストシーズンだけでなく、セカンドシーズンでも一つの軸になる。
    ・00は刹那と沙慈のダブル主人公のつもりでいる。
    ・ルイスは被害者と逆の立場に身を置くようになる。
    ・(セカンドシーズンに)刹那は出ます。4年後なので20歳になっているかな。そうなると、身長も伸びてるでしょうね。

    [ A part of Mizushima interview ]
    ・I tried to carry out the idea that “Gundam isn’t a champion of justice”.
    ・After all, CB’s intervention by military power was a terrorism. Therefore, they will need to compensate the world.
    ・”Be brame for”… This will become one centering not only the first season but also the second season.
    ・Setsuna and Saji are double hero in this story.
    ・Louis will become the reverse position to the injured party.
    ・Setsuna will appear in second season. He will be 20 years old, and grow taller.

    ■Commentary in PASH(simplicity) / ※PASH is the magazine for female.
    [ character's generalization / theme:love and sorrow]

    ・Setsuna’s shout
    ―He carried through his convictions without being discouraged by adversity.
    When everybody worried, only he didn’t hesitate and faced the enemy.
    His straight spirit and innocent are true strength.
    And, Alehandro’s ambition was broken to pieces by Setsuna’s strength.
    ―All of him started from “I am Gundam”, and ended in “I am Gundam”.
    Love to Gundam is more greatly than average Gundam Otaku! Because “I am Gundam”!

    ・Sacrifice of Lockon
    ―He was usually an adult attitude. However, he had his own way in the very end.
    He fighted for his belief that it didn’t concede.
    Beyond any doubt, this is true “man among men’s love” to men!
    ―The goal of Setsna was same as Lockon’s.
    Before his noticing it, Setsuna and Lockon were true companion(comrade).

    ・Allelujah & Hallelujah
    ―To tell the truth, Hallelujah might have worried about the Aallelujah.
    There was certainly love between them.
    ―Mali(Marie?) seems to be a very important person for Allelujah.
    We want that Mari’s truth revealed in the second season…

    ・Tieria’s vindictiveness
    ―Tieria’s fight was vindictive, because he wanted to revenge Lockon.
    Is it love to the companion…? Was his awkward feeling rewarding?
    He alone know their answer.
    ―Tieria said “I can go to the ~ Lockon…” last.
    If Lockon witnessed Tieria’s such state, he would smile(or laugh) as he would say “Ba-ka”, and banter Tieria.

    if graham is dead then who’s that blond guy wearing the mask?

  • May 6, 2008 at 2:40 pmKyrios_Lurve

    I m wishing for the other 3 meisters(setsuna,allelujah & tieria)to be alive,though. Its seems unfair,if one by one that the heros meet their death too soon,since that,the whole series is about their story,why does it have to end so quickly?Really,totally unfair. Dunno about tieria though. But to my predictions,these 3 are still,alive having recover from the first season,i m sure about it. Setsuna had a very strong heart to fight back when,where there’s wrong he try to make it right(he haven’t reach his goal yet,right?),while al had yet to find an/some answer from soma pieres a.k.a marie(still it won’t end there yet)and there’s this mystery boy named tieria and it need to be solve too.Will the gundam meisters give up so easily and early?How ’bout ali al-sarshes,the meisters real-deal & the most annoying foe then?who’ll beat him later? will it be lyle(lockon’s twin)?or will setsuna take a revenge on him for lockon?How ’bout that livonze guy?..and more yet to reveal.wow,so,so crazy! I had never felt this crazy before over these 00 series and now it makes me hungry for much,much more!then again,will there be a replacement for the 3 meisters? Curiosity killed the cat.let’s hope that the long wait will be in a short while only. Let’s hope. ..(-_-)

    tieria not dies, Lockon dies but Lockon Seems to have a brother or something. Setsuna is not die, Halelujah Haptism may die, but Alelujah is not. He said That he must Protect Amria or something Known As Soma Peries. hahhahhaha…,….
    Can`t wait to see the seasons 2.

    Wikipedia:

    The name “Nadleeh” is a term interchangeable with “Two-spirit,” used by the Navajo tribes to denote a male spirit and a female spirit living in the same body.

    If this means anything at all, Romi Paku may very well be the voice of Tieria’s feminine alter-ego :o

  • May 15, 2008 at 5:16 pmrawfish

    i seriously wonder if setsuna is dead or not.
    Him floating there… really doesn’t say much.

  • June 22, 2008 at 8:32 pmyen

    Dude what you just said is fucked up man. It makes no sense. Allelujah should not be dead. In the end he recogized Soma the supersolider as Maria their something there to make sure he doesn’t get killed off. I think Tieria is a girl and liked Lockon. Libbons is gay man. And Grahams gone crazy. Setsuna should still be alive. I was disappointed when Patrick and Ali Ali Sashas didn’t die but there has to be someone evil in there.

  • June 22, 2008 at 8:35 pmyen

    Sorry to the previous post guy. I did not see there were still other posts. I was refer to Rauzes comment.

    @Omni: before Code Geass R2 ends, will you also make Gundam 00 Season Two Primer like what you did in Code Geass?

  • July 14, 2008 at 12:31 amragnarok

    Yeah I know that is no the Lockon that we know they said that Lockon is dead and is no coming back. Whoever this guy is, he is just using Lockon’s code name. Since he look exactly like Lockon, he might be his twin.

  • July 15, 2008 at 2:47 pmanimex

    i think the person in the mask is lockon since he’s still alive?
    or his twin brother… whatever his name is.
