While ZAFT attacks the first relay cylinder of the Requiem weapon, the Minerva is sent on a bombing run of Djibril’s moon base. Before they set off, Shinn is quite worried about Lunamaria’s well being, but she says that she’ll be fine, asking Shinn to believe in her. The two share several moments together before setting out. As usual, the battle is intense, especially since the Minerva is the only ship assaulting the base. However, with ample use of the Tannhauser and good piloting by each of the gundam aces, they quickly bring down everything that’s thrown at them including several mobile armors and Destroy Gundams. Djibril gets desperate and wants to fire the Requiem prematurely, but that never happens. Instead, Rey destroys the ship he’s tries to escape on. Sitting on his throne, Gilbert thanks Djibril and then says goodbye. On Earth, Kira and Athrun get ready to launch the next day. They talk about everyone’s dreams and desires while looking at the peaceful sky. When the ArchAngel is about to launch, Cagalli delivers a speech to the crew. Athrun notices that she’s no longer wearing the ring that he gave her, but he never gets the opportunity to speak with her. When Kira and Lacus approach him concerned, he replies that it’s ok because their dreams are the same. Walking out, Cagalli runs into Meyrin and requests that she watch out for Athrun’s safety. Cagalli leaves with tears in her eyes, but salutes the ArchAngel off as it once again heads for space.

I enjoyed this battle episode even if it felt rather one-sided at times. There is a lot less Yzak and Dearka and a lot more Shinn/Rey/Lunamaria than I would have guessed. But since the fight is more about the Minerva’s moon assault, that makes sense. I’m just happy that the battle didn’t seem too much of a redux of past fights.
The ring is gone! I didn’t expect that to happen, but it makes sense. Cagalli probably wants to concentrate on her state duties, and realizes that when this is all over, she and Athrun will have all the time in the world (assuming he survives). But it still seems very painful for her not to be able to go with them. I have a firm belief that Athrun and Cagalli will still end up together, but for now they will pursue their dream in different ways.
Neo/Mwu is now officially the pilot of the Akatsuki. They even changed the OP sequence to reflect this. It’s about time the man who makes the impossible possible gets a powerful mobile suit again. I’m rooting for the fact that he doesn’t die again, and hopefully the suit will serve him well in that respect.
Rey’s quick reflexes catch Djibril trying to escape, resulting in a quick death. I thought the thank you, and then goodbye line from Gilbert was a nice touch. With Djibril’s purpose served, whatever that may be, Gilbert is now ready to move forth with his plans. He’s already sent Meer to the moon city Copernicus, and that also looks to be where the ArchAngel is headed. The preview shows Athrun, Meyrin, Kira, Lacus, and Meer under small arms fire (maybe from the bodyguard Gilbert gave her?). Maybe Meer will join the ArchAngel (oh dear, I can see the Meer and Lacus encounter now…). I’m very curious to see what her eventual role in all this will be.
Closing Thought: Seems like we’re shifting girls around in Athrun’s harem again. (I say this in all jest)


  1. Good ep, nice action although I agree a little to much one sided… Destorys are now just Giant Grunts… and dies as quick as the normal ones >.>next ep looks good however if you have read the spoilers for ep 46 you have a pretty good guess on how it turns out. I laughed when I herd the last line of the preview, Haro being the one thing that was mentioned at the end I just burst out laughing at that point.

  2. Finally, Mwu get’s a Gundam! And not some second rate one. X3
    It’s too bad the Girty Lue was destroyed so quickly. In the first few episodes, it seemed that it would have played a much more important role later on. I guess Fukuda just really doesn’t like the EA. -_-

  3. I thought Akatsuki is for Cagalli but its ok, I think Neo/Mwu can handle it for sure…. Im just wndrng y Cagz took off her ring and gave it to Meyrin..??? I hope nothing bad will happen to Asucaga cauz I like dem!!! I also wndr wat will happen to Shinn??? can’t wait!!!

  4. WOO!! Mwu’s got the Akatsuki now! Yay! I dunno how you knew, Anza, but that was a REALLY good guess back in your comments on Phase-44. lol. But yeah, it kinda sucks that the Girty Lue got blown out of the picture almost as quickly as it reappeared. I thought that it’d play a bigger role in things. I figgered it’d give the Archangel hell just like the Dominion in the first SEED. So I think that was rather poorly done >>. Oh well. I can’t wait to see the DRAGOON pack on the Akatsuki (Which makes perfect sense to me now that Mwu’s the pilot)! I saw it on MAHQ ^o^.

  5. SO depressed .. I was hoping that Cagalli will leave to space with them .. and I was shocked with the ring thing !!
    when I think of it .. there is only 5 episodes til we reach ep 50 ..
    will this series be like SEED only 50 eps?
    the events are progressing so slow .. I wonder if 50 ep will be enough to finish the whole thing .. and I HOPE Fukuda will add some Asucaga in the end of the series .. I not asking for too much am I ^^;

  6. Honestly I want Cagalli to die, besides leading orb her character is completely useless, she sucks as a polition, she sucks in relationships, she sucks at fighting in a MS, yet her country loves her for her ideals, if she didn’t have that there wouldn’t be anything she didn’t suck at XD


    Would love the following scenario…

    Cagalli dies
    Athrun and Meyrin live
    Athrun becomes severally depressed over the loss of Cagalli
    Meyrin Takes care of him
    They eventaully get married when Athrun finally gets over her and really starts to care for Meyrin.

    No this isn’t because this is what I want to happen to Jui’ichi x Kotori… no… not at all… *Shifty eyes*

  7. Cagalli is being kind to him and meyrin though i really really didnt like this to happen, but it shows that cagalli give/letting up athrun to meyrin.

    So we must as well agree to her decision.It might be good to her as well as to athrun amd meyrin.

    But truely i hope they will get together in the end.

    Cagalli probably still keeping the ring with her since she never give it back to athrun.

    Maybe Athrun will not choose Meyrin.

    If is me i rather take the one who can fight in the war than the one who only know how to stick around.

    I hope the ending would be like this:

    After the war
    Meyrin:Im not fit to be with you(meyrin clarified herself)You should go back to Cagalli.

    Athrun:Sorry Meyrin…

    Athrun,Kira,Lacus and the AA return to Orb.



    Athrun put on the ring on her left hand again:Lets get marry.

    Cagalli say with tears:ok..

    Then they get marry…Happy ending!!Haha ive think too much

  8. The reason Cagalli was left at Orb because she have to decide between Orb and athrun.She would rather protect her country than a guy,and if something happens to Orb she can immediately handle it.athrun also get to understand why.cagalli have a hard time now,she doesnt think she can help athrun now(but i dont think meyrin can help also).Athrun still can go back to Orb,you know, athrun is just repaying Meyrin for saving him from ZAFT,Just a way of thanks .And the next five episodes probably will not show cagalli any more maybe the last episode…shows athrun return back to her.

  9. I s’pose it really doesn’t matter to me… I have this sinking feeling that somehow or another Meyrin is gonna end up getting killed at the end of GSD >>. Wouldn’t it be funny if Shinn accidentally killed Meyrin, and then Luna, in a pissed off rage, killed Shinn? XD. I can just see Rey now… Rey: “God dammit… >.

    Phantom Pain
  10. Well we all know its probably going to end up like this…

    Luna tries to join AA/Eternal when she talks to Meyrin
    Rey kills Luna the traitor
    Shinn goes bezerk and kills Rey

    *sigh* it seems so predictable, we can only hope that this isn’t wants going to happen XD

  11. OMG, I want Cagalli to end up with athrun, and kira stays with Lacus, Duh! And i want the following people to die: Meyrin, Rey, Shinn (maybe he can stay alive, but no on ewith a seed dies yet), Mai Campbell, and soo muc more. I want Daerka and that other girl to end up with each other too. It is hard to beleive that she wanted to kill dearka with a knife in gundam seed XD, but they are such a good couple. I don’t want Neo/ Mwu to die because it would be heartbreaking to hmm…. what’s that captain’s name XD. Sorry, not good with names. I’ll rember though. There are soo many cool couples. MA. PEOPLE, IF ATHRUN ENDS UP WITH MEYRIN, I’M GOING TO FREAKIN’ HATE HER. OR EVEN FAKE LACUS, I’LL KILL EM’ BOTH!!!

  12. OOPIES!!! no one is here XD. but that is my theorry *nods twice* Well, it’s ok if Shinn doesn’t die and ends up with luna (lunamaria). It’s ok, they are soo meant. but then again. i hear that luna will die, but that soo sounds fake. If Athrun, Cagalli, Kira, Lacus, The captain of AA, Neo, Or any of the cool people die, I’m soo going to hate this anime. I got to say, the fighting is pretty cool. But i still don’t like the fact that Shinn is on the “bad team” as i call it, Rey, Brainwashin’ him sucks. But still, i can’t forgive the fact that Shinn injured Athrun and Kira little, but athrun alot. He a loser sometimes. I also heard some people sayin’ luna is throwing her life away with Shinn XD. But like i said, they are a pretty cool couple. MAN, I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IN GUNDAM SEED DESTINY. T^T, I CAN’T WAIT A WHOLE WEEK!!!

  13. First time posting here. Still can’t believe they brought Mwu back. I still feel like he should have stayed dead. Him coming back pushed Bart out of the picture and into the background. Hope we see more of him fight in Gaea, I find him much more interesting than Mwu. Maybe they’ll end up getting Bart with Minerva’s captain.

  14. If that’s what you think about Mwu, then you suck >>. lol, j/k. Yeah, until the appearance of Neo in Phase-02, I really thought that Andy would hook up with Murrue since they both lost someone special in the first Natural/Coordinator war thing. But, truth be told, I’m a much bigger fan of Mwu than I am of Andy ^^. I’d like to see them team up and kick some serious pseudo-Newtype (

    Phantom Pain
  15. Yeah definitely
    GO GSD!!!!!!!!!!
    I WANT SHINN DEAD! The way i see it he lost his family, his first love, and he might lose Meyrin’s sister LUNA. I have a feeling LUNA might die, everyone Shinn knows and cares for is dead. HE has to die now!! Plus i hate the way he messes with the AA and Kira. But Kira is the coolest character and can take down Shinn Agree!?

  16. I didnt like gundam seed destiney episode 50 i thought that Cagalli and Athrun would get married. And the sam thing for Kira and Lacus. Gundam seed is better than GSD.Tobad

    Claire liang
  17. Is good that Meryin make a promise to Cagalli that she take a good look at Athrun. Cagaill didn’t wear the ring which Athrun give her is that she want to put her heart on ORB
