14 years ago at a Union university, a young Billy had talked with Sumeragi – then still Leesa Kujo – about her graduation thesis about the tactical theory and forecasted toll of unmanned craft combat. Billy had figured out that Sumeragi was planning on becoming a tactical forecaster and had complimented her because she was graduating at only the age of 17. Sumeragi had felt that she was still not in Kati’s league, though Kati was known as a genius tactical forecaster. Sumeragi’s goal was to become a tactical forecaster like Kati so that she could save lives and keep damage to a minimum by attempting strategies that would lead to swift resolutions. Billy had believed that she could do it and had lamented how lonely it’d be once she graduated, and their conversation had been interrupted by the arrival of Kati. Kati had read the thesis and was impressed by it, and she wondered if the next time they’d meet would be on the battlefield. Kati hoped that it wouldn’t be as enemies, but it didn’t turn out that way, and as Sumeragi thinks about it back in the present, she questions why Kati is in A-LAWS.

Back on Earth, Sergei and his Federation unit are stationed outside the Middle Eastern country of Suihr, watching its movements. Suihr opposes the Federation’s Middle East reorganization plan, and the Federation knows that if Suihr acts, then the other countries will follow. The government has dispatched A-LAWS to prevent this. Katharon is aware of the situation and of how powerful Suihr is militarily, though it still doesn’t match the Federation’s power. The Katharon leaders aren’t sure of how they can help militarily, so Shirin proposes that they use their information network to pass along the information that Suihr has on the Federation’s misgovernment in the Middle East. She feels that if there’s public objection, then the Federation won’t be able to interfere carelessly in the Middle East. Deciding to go with this plan, they send a man to contact the Suihr’s royal family. Marina meanwhile remains concerned about Azadistan, but Shirin informs her that there hasn’t been any noteworthy information out of there recently, and they can’t go in to check because of the Federation have closed the border off.

Shirin then tells Marina that the only way to rebuild Azadistan is to defeat the Federation, and she feels that it is Marina’s duty as a princess to fight. Marina, however, doesn’t think that it is possible for everyone to be happy if they use force to get Azadistan back. Shirin doesn’t mind if Marina doesn’t do anything, but she personally vows to fight. After this conversation, Marina realizes that she now understands Setsuna’s feelings of losing his home, and she questions how he’s able to fight despite the sense of loss. Up in space, Arthur Goodman tells Kati that it’s highly likely that the Ptolemaios headed to Lagrange 3, and he’s leaving her in charge of the pursuit. Kati ends up thinking about Sumeragi and questions if what happened with Emilio led to her committing to the philosophy of Celestial Being. She sees the eradication of war as nothing more than a foolish dream and believes that strife will never disappear from the world, and she notes that they became tactical forecasters to prevent the prolonging of fighting.

Over on the Ptolemaios, Setsuna is thinking about Marina, Ali Al Saachez, and how nothing has changed when the ship comes under attack. Marie can sense that something dangerous is coming, and since the Arios and Seravee are still being repaired, only the 00 Gundam is initially sent out. Setsuna immediately notices that the enemy mobile suit is equipped with a pseudo-GN Drive, and he has a hard time keeping up with its mobility. To everyone’s surprise, this new unit is able to deploy a GN field, and it uses beam sabers hidden in its fingers to slice off the barrel of the 00 Gundam’s gun. Before Setsuna can use the Trans-Am system, the Cherudim and the Ptolemaios come to his aid, and the enemy pilot decides to retreat. Sumeragi suspects that the attack was to check and warn them that the Federation has expanded out here and to show them the new unit’s abilities. Tieria realizes that the enemy pilot was an Innovator, but he still can’t tell Sumeragi anything and questions his own hesitation.

The Ptolemaios eventually arrives at the secret Lagrange 3 base, and Mileina is reunited with her mother. Ian introduces her as Linda Vashti, and everyone is surprised at how young she looks. On a more serious note, Sumeragi has Ian speed up the resupply and repairs, but a new face tells them that this will take at least five days. This person introduces herself as Anew Returner and had been scouted by Wang Liu Mei, and Ian is quite impressed with her already. Back down on Earth, Katharon gets word that the Suihr royal family is willing to meet with them, so one of their leaders heads out for the meeting. While this is going on, Marina is watching over the children and gets in a conversation with a Suihr boy who is worried about his country. The boy questions why everybody can’t get along and suggests that they all just have to eat a meal together. When Marina asks him for other suggestions, the boy proposes playing together, singing together, and sharing their treasured things.

The Ptolemaios crew meanwhile examines the 0 Raiser which has the ability to control the Twin Drive and amplify the Trans-Am of the 00 Gundam. There is also a support craft for the Arios, the GN Archer, but for the time being, they’re ready to test the 0 Raiser. While the others are working, Marie notices Saji looking down and talks to him about it. Saji admits to being unsure of what to do because he feels the need to atone for all the people who died because of him, but he can’t bring himself to fight or kill. He also questions if Marie will stay with Celestial Being, so she confirms that she’ll be here as long as Allelujah is. She’s prepared even if it means getting involved in the fighting because she used to be a soldier, and she’s decided not to leave Allelujah no matter what happens. Saji is envious of her and confesses that he has someone he feels similarly about, and if he were reunited with her, then he wouldn’t leave her either. However, he feels very uneasy, and what he doesn’t know is that Louise is at this moment suffering from another one of her painful episodes.

Over on the A-LAWS ship under Kati’s command, the mobile suit that had attacked the Ptolemaios earlier has arrived. Patrick tries to convince Kati to let him have a new mobile suit, but she shuts him up in frustration. When its pilot Bring Stabity runs into Revive Revival, he reveals that the Memento Mori will be used. The other Innovators – specifically Regene and Ribbons – are talking about this as well back at their base, and Ribbons explains that using it will accelerate the Middle East plan and unite humanity’s will. He also thanks Wang Liu Mei for helping with the construction of it, and she looks forward to the future that the Innovators will create. Nena meanwhile encounters Ali Al Saachez, and when she realizes who he is, she attacks him. He easily stops her and warns her against endangering her life. Ali then pays a visit to Ribbons, who he refers to as his client and boss, to report on not finding something. Ribbons doesn’t mind and has Ali watch what’s about to happen with him.

At this moment, A-LAWS is getting ready to fire a giant orbital weapon called the Memento Mori. The ensuing blast hits the Suihr capital right as the meeting between the Katharon leader and the royal family is going on, and it vaporizes everything. Unaware of what’s happening, the Celestial Being crew is testing the 0 Raiser’s control system with the Trans-Am system, and result is astonishing. It reaches over 290% of the normal numbers and exceeds the theoretical limits, and that makes Ian question if this is the Twin Drive that Aeolia foresaw. With all the particles flying around, Marie suddenly senses that Sergei is in trouble and tells him to run. Allelujah and Tieria also get headaches, and it causes Hallelujah to reawaken.


Well after a lot of buildup, it seemed like all the exciting stuff happened in the final couple of minutes and in the epilogue of this episode. For one, the fact that Sergei might have gotten caught up in the blast (and thus be dead) combined with the apparent return of Hallelujah suggests that the story between Marie and Allelujah isn’t done just yet. I should have known something was up after Marie said all those things to Saji about always staying with Allelujah. It probably foreshadows that she’ll have trouble with the person she didn’t expect to appear again, and it might make her question her commitment. Still, assuming that the GN Archer requires a pilot since it has a cockpit, she’d be perfect for the job (just like Saji would be perfect for the 0 Raiser), and that might be reason enough to believe that she’ll stick around.

As for the super weapon, I’m a bit surprised that one appeared so relatively early in the series, but this makes things very interesting. I can’t help but wonder though if there’s not another veiled political point being made here about using military force to destroy and impose your will on a country that doesn’t agree with you, especially since this series keeps going to the Middle East for all this conflict. In any case, I would assume that Celestial Being will decide that A-LAWS can’t have that kind of power and will want to destroy it or something, but I’m sure Ribbons has planned for this. One of his trump cards is likely to be Anew Returner as a spy or saboteur. She’s made to seem normal and harmless in this episode, but her appearance and connection to Wang Liu Mei are very suspicious. It’s probably less of a question of if she’s one of the bad guys and more of a question of when Setsuna and company will realize this. For the time being though, it looks like they’ll have their hands full with the A-LAWS attack on Lagrange 3 that’s hinted at in the preview, and we’ll finally get to see how powerful the 00 Gundam has become.

On a final note, a commercial for the new Fullmetal Alchemist series aired at the end of this episode. It still feels really early for them to be advertising, but I guess they wanna get the word out.


  1. Hallelujah back + Arios upgrade = inovator fucked.
    I’m wondering what will be of this series, since we got to see the ‘ultimate mass destruction weapon’ early this time, also all gundams and thrones received an update.
    What will happen to Soma/Marie? I’m sure that Sergei didn’t die (we all know how sunrise is), but… I guess they will make Marie believe he did and this will twist her and allelujah plot.
    I need to see it subbed, so much things to learn in this episode, two new characters IIRC appeared.

  2. This is turning really interesting i wonder since HALLELUJAH is back will Tieria start to remember things about his past and i get the feeling that lockon stratos may appear again :).

  3. Nena vs. Ali = two killers face off, hehe.

    Soma was never dead… just dormant, just as Marie was when Soma was dominant. Maybe Hallelujah was the same too… but unlike you guys, I prefer Hallelujah stay dead.

    Chino F.
  4. Hallelujah you’re back! And here I thought you were a goner. Well, welcome back friend:)

    BTW isn’t it a bit too early in the series to be bringing out big-ass weapons like the Memento Mori death ray? Not that that’s a bad thing but damn these guys work fast.

  5. Gekokujou

    Yeah, it seems that they are ‘rushing’ it. Other gundam series usually have the ultimate weapon 5~10 episodes before the end.
    I guess we will have a big surprise with this series.

  6. @yadayada
    Yeah, I think we will have a big surprise (maybe an even bigger weapon that makes the death ray look like a child’s toy). Regardless this series is yet to disappoint and I doubt they’ll even start doing it.

  7. Maybe Gundam 00 still have more weapon for us in store.. Eg. like the big head in Seravee maybe make gattai with all Gundam and the mothership to form the most kick ass gundam ever. you will never know. ^^

  8. Hallelujah left last season when Allelujah realized that Soma was Marie because Hal said that Ale didn’t have a reason to fight anymore. That’s why Ale was never told by Hal who Soma actually was. But ever since episode 3 of this season he did have a reason to fight which was to get back Marie. But then if that were the case I dont know why Sunrise didn’t Bring Hal back earlier. Maybe he was so far hibernated in the mind that the GN particles from that super death ray brought him out again. Oh well…this whole super death ray thing and CB being the rebel force, in addition to Katharon fighting against the ’empire’ is making this whole series feel like Star Wars except better.

  9. I think this is good for the Allah x Marie fans in the end. Hallel coming back just tosses in a bit more depth/drama to that situation. Also seeing as how Alaws killed or tried to kill Sergei, IF Soma takes over later on I seriously doubt she’ll go back to the people who just tried to kill him etc.

    But that’s IF Soma takes over, I dunno, she could and this way Marie/Soma can fight and help the others again. Right now she’s even below Saji in terms of usefulness. At least Saji helps fix things heh.

  10. It’s really only when Hallel and Allah work together that he goes full supersoilder mode, like at the end of s1. So unless they work together again when needed he/they won’t be at 100%.

  11. Well, he certainly talk like Hallelujah, but didn’t they say he died? Maybe it is the so call third personality that was in the preview trailer. My Japanese is not that good, but heard something about 290% coming out of those twin drive with the O-Riser. Oh yeah, I hope Sergei is alright. Also, I’m pretty sure Tieria’s hair is not that long. Makes me wonder does he actually wear a wig with short hair normally.

  12. i think im starting to get the idea of what really ribbons wants.
    he wants the mankind to get destroy by letting them fight each other, then the new breed of humans will come which are the innovators (this maybe also the reason why they come in pair?). after that mankind will move on since they are not much restricted with time, bec innovators have a age surpressing ability.

    thats just what my guts tells me ever since he talk to teira last episode.

    ohh by the way can somebody tell why is louise making that angry/hopeless face?

  13. omg right now i’m praying that all goes well with marie and allelujah. with hallelujah back, i’m SO scared and i’m positive that their relationship will just not work out in the end…i feel so sick to my stomach about this. and with marie doubting her choice of staying with allelujah, that just makes things SO much worse and scary for me.

  14. YES! OMG! HALLELIJAH! WOOT! I am so excited! I was so depressed when he ‘died’ last season. I was so not expecting him to come back either. Wow… This just made my day. I want the next episode!

  15. tieria’s hair was wet and thats why it looked longer (though they made it a bit too long) but it wasnt much beyond his shoulder.

    so hallelujah wasn’t dead from the beginning. he was just hiding lol. can’t wait to see episode 11!

  16. Why do innovators have such stupid names? Ribbons has one of those bizarre anime names that wouldn’t work outside of the show but is passable. The rest are named like Super Villain, Act Now, and Wounding Wound. I mean, what the hell is that? I’d prefer something as generic as numbers over names that stupid.

  17. Hallelujah’s is back, good there some hope for CB now in terms of fighting force. I do not hope for Marie if turn back to Soma returns to the other side. CB don’t have enough backups and not only are they dealing with A-Laws but also Innovators. Btw who is piloting the O-Rizor Lasse or maybe Saji LOL, Nah Lasse better. 00 Gundam has O-Rizor and Arios get Hallelujah, now its time for the new Lockon to get something, like maybe old Lockon Back so they can get do duel twin Sniping. As for Tieria Seravee it more powerful then Virtue but I wonder if it has some stronger version of Nadleeh or something.

  18. Ok, at this point I’m 90% certain that people with Quantum Brainwaves are affected by GN particles in an amplifying sort of way. I’m also saying that Innovators have Quantum Brainwaves. Louise’s constant headaches are caused by this, because:
    – EP 1 was Ribbons looking through her eyes
    – EP 9 was right around when Teria tried to shoot Ribbons. Notice the swirly blur around Teria when he tries to shoot…seems like someone was messing with his head…

    Note that Louise wasn’t affected by Soma, because Soma was getting Quantum RECEPTION, and wasn’t sending out any real amount of brainwaves. Actually, Louise sending out her brainwaves may be the reason why Soma could read her feelings.

    And yes, I’m wholeheartedly saying that Louise is now a semi-super-soldier.

  19. @Vsin
    Agree with most of your points… the fact innovators use quantum brainwaves was confirmed a few episodes back when Wang Liu Mei was telling Hong Long that Nena was a better choice than him for recon against innovators because she could also use quantum brainwaves. Also GN particles being an amplifier is also probably true as I imagine Aeolia first discovered how to create innovators when he was fiddling around with his GN particle experiments, so a connection seems natural.

    As for the episode itself, a point I found interesting was how Ali reported back to Ribbons about not finding anything, when in reality he caught Nena hacking away. Maybe he has some plans to kill off ribbons some time down the line. Seems the type of guy to do something like that. Anyway looking forward to the next episode with awakened Hal and the 00+raizer.

  20. wow, I can’t help but get a feeling that super-soldiers are like a prototype of Innovators.. I mean, look at how they depicted GN particles spreading around when hallelujah came back and when marie had a newtype flash thing

  21. it’s all fun and games until someone deploys planetary destruction weaponry

    Oh yeah, Hallelyjah is back and why did only him(besides Set-chan) was given an upgrade?


  22. All innovator has clone counterpart. Regene x tieria, healing x ribbon, divine x bring and revive x anew.

    Anew was brought to celestrial being via wang liu may, we know wang liu may is in bed with innovator and collaborated with regene in previous episode. On top of that the celestrial being base was ambushed in next episode, I would say Anew returner is spy for sure.

  23. Even tieria who had no contact with his brother regene has personal obligation to protect the innovator’s identity. He hasn’t divulge anything to CB crew about ribbon and his brother has he.

  24. I figure tieria is still loyal to CB, unlike Anew who’s a spy. Since innovator are so entrenched in CB, tieria will have no choice but to inform Koujou his secret or risk defeat, just like allelujah did to quantum brainwave research facility.

  25. If Tieria said “Guess what, there’s this secret group of evil people that were created to destroy you guys and I happen to be one of them” it would probably create problems. The idea of loyalty to the Innovators may not be wrong but it’s pretty implausible.

  26. This group of cyborg newtype was created to support CB, But since Innovator are cunning they turn on their master with only tieria staying loyal. Ahem, skynet from terminator, we seen it all before, tieria is arnold via terminator T1.
    Why be a subordinate to a inferior standard when newtyper are superior. Ribbon reveal that he wanted to be the ringleader of the world through ALAW. So far he has all the cards Arche,Godessa and garazzo, with exception to Bushido Ahead MK2.

  27. Wang Liu Mei confirmed it for me this episode, Ribbons’s plan isn’t Aeolia’s plan. Besides she isn’t on the same side as them. She’s merely using Ribbons, does anyone remember this phrase: Keep your friend close and you’re enemies even closer. She tells them bits off CB, but never tells them enough to destroy CB. (when she gave away CB’s location in ep 3 or something, gundam 00 activates) Now she’ll inform them about Langrange 3, but guess what O-Raiser is complete, now change they can destroy CB.

    Besides why else is Nina Spying on Ribbons and the innovators.

    Twin drive was a prediction from Aeolia, this for me once more confirmes the fact that Ribbons has his own plans now and CB wasn’t meant to be destroyed if something like that would come up.

    As for the innovator Anew, Sunrise want’s us to believe she’s a spy.. To be honest we might be looking surprised to find out she isn’t. Wang Lui Mei send her, yes.. But Wang Lui Mei isn’t particularly on Ribbons’ side. We’ll at least that’s my prediction. It’s time we get to her past ASAP, but I have a feeling that her history is one of the biggest surprises we’ll get somewhere around the last 5 episodes.

  28. I’m not so sure on this but to me it seems like Hallelujah isn’t back. It’s a new personality. If you pay attention to the dialect in which he speaks, its different from the ones both Hal and Al used/use.

  29. I think it should be Bring Stability, it was said that the innovators are the new blah blah to bring peace to the world. So i guess the names of the innovators goes that way. Like Bring Stability will bring stability … to the world? Lol

    It can also be a new personality from Allulejah since Hallelujah somehow ‘died’. But what would he be called now? Wallelujah? XD

  30. I think in ep 9 they regenne confirmed they used gn particles to amplify their quantum waves.

    Sweet Hallelujah, now it can be HallelujahXSoma and AllelujahXMarie, they totally fit each other

  31. Anew is a spy. Even ignoring that she was recruited via Wang Liu Mei, at some point in this episode the Innovators mentioned Anew by name themselves. Considering she’s basically been entrenched in their R&D, there’s a lot of potential for harm here.

    I’m not 100% convinced that was Halleluja. I was under the impression that there were 3 personalities within. Still, this definitely puts a crimp in the Marie/Allej relationship, which I think we all knew must happen since it was way too early to be saying “happy ending”. If this is Gundam (and it is :p ), I suspect sadness in that pairing, and this different personality is a good step in that direction.

    I hope Sumeragi doesn’t fall apart now that she knows she’s fighting Kati.

    It’s an anime, so it is hard to say if a person is dead, but it would make a lot of sense for Sergei to have died. It would put his goodbye with Marie in a good place, create tensions, and just drive the story and drama much better than for him to have miraculously survived. It might also help to catalyze any plots surrounding his son, who seems to be a pretty alright man who doesn’t really fit the “evil” aura of A-LAWS himself.

    This season of 00 is just great. I hated how we had this long break, but it seems they really spent that time well to greatly improve the show. I can’t wait for next week. 🙂

  32. Killer Kill for next innovator name. Hallelujah back….time for so crazy fight scenes. All i see now is CB is screwed for the rest of the season. And i hope Sergie isnt dead, but i guess that is the fate of a nice guy.

  33. i hope tat anew will be like tieria and she is a girl tat suit to be wife cuz she can do everything.bring really awesome.why someone thought tat the one appear is allelujah 3rd personality

  34. Hmmm if Soma/Marie sense that Sergei is in trouble and probably wont make it out alive she will be very sad and lose her only one most close to her beside Allelujah; their is no way she will return to the other side anymore now that she experince that it not CB fault anymore because she on there ship. Even if she was to turn back to Soma she wont forgive the Innovators and instead help Celestial Being. Everything was all planned out nicely though they always end us with suspense: Sergei dies; Soma/Marie sad now she will now definitely avenge Sergei by going back to the battlefield fighting along side with Allelujah, O-Raizer and GN Archer is introduced and probally Soma/Marie will pilot GN Archer, Hallelujah revives but I doubt its to face Soma/Marie but maybe he sense Soma/Marie has the will to fight and then Allelujah wont be weak sauce and has will to fight because he going to fight along side with Marie and protect her; that is what brought Hallelujah back because Allelujah wont be a burden or lets hope so.

  35. I belive Louise is a Newtype. She totally had a newtype flash back in episode 8, and she has blue eyes and blonde hair, wich seems pretty common among newtypes (Char, Mulaflaga, RawKruzze). I also think Graham is a newtype as well, and maybe even Ali since he seems to be able kick anyones ass.

  36. anew will probably pilot o raiser in the next fight, well until she screw CB over weather she work for innovator or Wang Liu Mei doesn’t detract from the fact that she will screw CB over sooner or later.

    It seems seravee and cherudim will get no upgrades, no new sniper rifle or bazooka.

  37. hmm. I get the feeling Ian and his wife are going to die…. I mean after this season theres probably no season 3 so theres no need for new gundams hence Ian & Linda are going to die just to ruin Mileina’s happy-go-lucky attitude.

    On another note, wow the giant super laser to attack earth appears… Anyone wanna bet a scene of OO gundam full output mega beam vs giant laser beam to see which is stronger?

    I thought Tieria had hair that was slightly above the shoulders? The dance I could understand if he used a wig but the shower?

    anyone wanna call bets on Tieria x Anew Returner couple just to make him seem straight?

  38. hal is back and now the innovator tree is complete.

    bring/maybe neena

    this episode was interesting to say the least. maybe killing papa bear in the process. in which will give soma another reason to fight. alle doesn’t want her to fight. oh ok i get it. he is dead. who might come back in the future.

    memento mori is an awesome name. and now the a-laws has pissed off soma/halle, setsuna, lyle/cataron, and the ever confused tieria.

    who is going through a weird dilemma of letting his comrades know or not. oh well at least he has an innovator partner by his side for now who will most likely betray them?????

    Frito the Gundam Nerd
  39. Anyone else think Nena might betray Wang Liu Mei in order to avenge her brothers?

    Judging by the number of people who think Anew Returner is a spy it’ll be one hell of a surprise if it turns out she is NOT and is really on CB’s side…

  40. Well, just wondering… Since you guys are saying that Hallelujah is back, what if that persona is not Hallelujah, and instead it’s the one called as Yallellujah, just like in the comedic preview shown months ago?

    Just a thought…

  41. you see shadowblack, i have come to a conclusion that anew is a plot device to showcase tieria how human he has a become. they may have a love story involving the two under their sleeves and will definitely create more confusion to the guy. here’s the deal if he somehow falls in love with another innovator, it will be his duty to persuade her to choose a side, in which will create a complex scheme that will pin ribbons to either defeat his own allies in order to achieve his goal. that’s my speculation.

    tieria=spacenoid=becomes romantically linked to a woman=mindfuck

    that’s it for now, wait ’til next episode, hopefully they’ll shed some light on this matter.

    Frito the Gundam Nerd
  42. regarging anew i reckon shell probably start out a spy but not really have any firm resolve then end up not being a spy for some reason romance or whatever! her being just a spy or Not being just a spy is to boring and predictable

    WingZero zxt
  43. that’s why the conflich between her feelings will make it interesting. if they penned her for romance with tieria, will she join him, if she is penned to be a spy, we’ll she join ribbons and/or playt both sides and come out as the ultimate villain. there are tons of uncertainties regarding her position. i suppose we’ll have to wait and see.

    Frito the Gundam Nerd
  44. trust me, sunrise is cheesy like that. and whats more interesting than a person who is not suppose to feel love it to see him develop such emotions. the innovators are solely built for leading and mating. that’s all.

    Frito the Gundam Nerd
  45. Hallelujah should had been the main character for this series. Setsuna’s character is becoming annoying along with marina’s. This guy gets pwned by everybody bushido, ali, an innovator geez how many times does he need to get whoop before he goes seed mode? I dont remember any main gundam character getting rape this many times….

  46. @Frito the Gundam Nerd
    “hal is back and now the innovator tree is complete.

    bring/maybe neena”

    The first three are correct, however the last one is not. It’s Bring/Divine. Divine was already mentioned in one of the previous eps, and you can see the two in the OP. It’s definitely not Nena.

    Regardless of whether Anew will get romantically involved with someone or not I hope she joins the good guys for real. They could use her talents…

  47. I agree J hopefully now hes been given full power of the once defective UBER gundam we will see the true capabilities of the suit! ( i would say see his true capabilities but hes made it abundantly clear that he is sub standard!) it will be funny when all of the people say that 00 was the clsest to nonsenical in a mech drama get thier hopes dashed quite spectacularly!

    WingZero zxt
  48. My problem with setsuna is the following in order to win he needs to hax. The guy skills instead of improving they regressed same thing with tiera. Ever since they introduced the trans-am mode they apparently forgot how to fight. Allelujah/Hallelujah and even this lockon have more fighting spirit. I dont remember any main character sucking this much and becoming so machine dependent as setsuna

  49. @Masterzero NAH conquista was laaaaaaaaame! i dont see what u mean! i reckon the oraisers wings will have a bit of wing split/fray action at the ends which will give it a SMALL ammount of the freedom vibe!

    WingZero zxt
  50. Also has everyone else forgotten that nena is the pychotic one who randomly killed louises parents for no reason!!!!! who cares who sh gets paired with as ong as shes dead by the end of the series along with libbons and grham acre aswell as Ali al sarches (its funny i almost dont want ali to die because hes is by far the most fun to watch!!!)

    WingZero zxt
  51. So Hallelujah’s back huh? My guess is that this will be a test of Marie’s love for Allelujah; will she love him no matter what, like he did for her, even when she did not remember him and was his enemy? My prediction is that this will end in one of two ways. One it works out and they end up together (Another one of those love conquers all storylines??), or Marie ends up dead while doing something to save his soul… (Which wouldn’t be an entirely bad ending, but pretty depressing.)

  52. Or how about: Soma falls in love with Hallelujah, resulting in two couples: Ale/Marie and Hale/Soma. That wouldn’t be such a bad idea, especially if Sergei got hurt (even killed) because of A-LAWS, giving Soma a reason to fight against her former allies. Especially since Hale and Some seem to be better pilots than Ale and Marie.

    I guess that would count as another “love conquers all” ending, only slightly different from the usual…

  53. everyone loves a great underdog story, so stop whining and just let setsuna be him. you have to understand that they are writing their script with the focus on destiny and worth. is setsuna’s destiny to control the machine and shit like that. its not like he asked to get the haxor of a toy to begin with. each and every character has their motivation and values. it just happens that setsuna’s is suppose to pilot the exia and 00. with the background and all.

    Frito the Gundam Nerd
  54. @Algent its 290% in jap omfg that much output DAMN!!!!!!!!!!! Symptoms to over exposure of GN particals may include Headaches, enhance in quantum brain waves, and revival of crazy and sadistic alteregos. 😛

    BOOYA HALLE is BAK and he must be happy 😛 he got even better toys this time LOLZ!!!

  55. That Independence Day attack was not cool. That Memento Mori is starting to become like the story of Code Geass R2 with their own version of Damocles to control the will of people or in this case unify mankind in Ribbons thinking.

    About Anew Returner I’d say Aeolia left her to be part of CB as a good guy or is just a damn spy to screw the CB team up as a bad guy, we will see the true intentions of CB innovator later.

    Nena and Ali are in a big argument hohoho what is going to happen from now on?

    That 0 Raizer looks cool can’t wait to see it in action and the support for Arios is piloted by Marie/Soma YAY avenge the Colonel (I’d say he isn’t dead just under a big pile of sand). Hallelujah is back YAY. Looks like Super Soldier M.A.S.H team is together again. (Marie, Allelujah, Soma and Hallelujah = M.A.S.H)

    Finally Innovators have their own special suit and Ribbons taking command of pulling the damocles/memento mori warhead/beam cannon.

    Let’s wait until Sunday!!!

  56. Well, here’s my say people. You guys are free to have any violent reactions, but I warn you, I don’t take insulting ones lightly…

    Anyway, first is Anew Returner. True that she likely to be the “twin” of Revive Revival. That make for a good ground to say she’s a spy, considering she pops out of nowhere. But i get vibes that she’s not. Maybe there’s something in the group shots of the Innovators, the one in the intro and the one way back in Season 1’s epilogue. That says something, that’s for sure. And she’s blushing, hardly acceptable for Innovator behavior. Either she’s a rogue like Tieria or she’s a REALLY good actor. Lemme know what you guys think

    Next is Sergei/Soma/Hallelujah. I don’t think he was caught up in the explosion, maybe the shockwave of the debris, but if he did die, I’d think it’d mean for the Soma to see eye-to-eye with Marie and Celestial Being, not to go against them should she resurface. Otherwise, I think was pointless to have brought her aboard the Ptolemaios. Besides, remember that Marie is the dominant one, like Allelujah is over Hallelujah. Speaking of Hallelujah, I’m convinced that it’s him and not that so-called third personality, after watching Season 1 again. And as stated by him before he “died”, the only reason he didn’t tell his other half that Soma was Marie, if only to protect him, knowing that Soma was going all out to kill Allelujah. Now that that’s not the case anymore, hopefully, I don’t think Hallelujah has any reason to butt heads with Soma. As for that third personality, instead of another identity, I think the third is actually the two personalities combined as seen in Season 1 Ep 25, this time permanently, seeing as how Allelujah now has both eyes exposed.

    Finally, the pilot of the 0 Raizer. Lasse’s a good choice and he may be the initial pilot, but I think Saji’s gonna be the assigned pilot. He’s maturing on his stay with CB, and obviously his mistake back in the desert was the wake-up kick in the nuts. With the way things are going, seeing the docile Marie still have a will to fight, he’s gonna stop moping around. Besides, he’ll find out sooner or later Louise is in the A-Laws. You think he’ll still be the mopy weenie you guys think him to be when he does?

  57. ok just watched the 10th episode (and again i want more!!!).

    Memento Mori is the newer version of Genesis, Neo Genesis, and Requiem [sigh].

    Hallelujah is back or is this the third personality? cause both of his eyes are shown.

    About the speculation that Sergie will die nope i double check the trailer.

    to clarify this things PLS speed up GUNDAM OO!!!

  58. That was a great episode! Definitely they rolled out this weapon quite early in comparison with other series…but maybe that’s since they may have another weapon in development or something. (First thing it reminded me of was the Ion Cannon from Command and Conquer, since it’s such a directed weapon aimed at earth). Either way, more action and more threats like this make this series quite interesting. Im really eager to see what exactly Wang Liu Mei wants from all this, since it doesnt seem like she cares at all about who gets killed or what happens since she did say she just wants the world to ‘change’. But change for what? The better? Or worse even? Im not sure if she’s sticking with the plan that Ribbons told Tieria about unification.

    Halleleujah’s back for the kill! I was wondering why they gave the upgrade to Arios, but there’s the answer. Should be quite the machine now to stand up against other machines like the one Bring pilots. Im also eager to see how he’s going to react when he sees Marie right there. Soma as a pilot for the GN-Archer would make a lot of sense, and if Saji pilots the O-Raizer, this would be quite interesting. All in all, great series so far!

  59. @espada, well that would be a cool theme to write down on the script, if that is the case, people would flock over jewllujah and be his fanboys,girls,gays.

    i would kiss someone if the real boss is anew returner working as aeolia’s real spy. muahahahahahahaha.

  60. I need some clarification.

    First, who funds CB? is there some colony out there mass producing weapons?

    Second, What is the innovator tree?

    Third, when are crashing colonies on the earth again?

    isn't this Gundam Wing 2?
  61. I can answer you first question.. The one funding is probably Aeolia, not in person ofcourse but through his network, al lot of capital has been build over 200 years.. Even back then he was lightyears ahead on technology in comparison to the rest of the world. So he was already wealthy, now imagine his family or close followers that build on this empire the last 200 years… That can become quite a fortune, other then that maybe Wang Liu Mei is funding them, who knows (she is playing two sides).. I don’t believe there’s a clear answer on this, but it’s just a bit of logical reasoning.

    As for your other questions, maybe someone else can help you on those.

  62. Has anyone else noticed that Ali didn’t reveal to Livonze that he had met Nena snooping around when questioned? (just before watching the Memento Mori fire)

    I wonder if he’s playing ‘along’ with the Innvators, only to sell them out later.

    Just speculating
  63. It was kinda strange indeed that he didn’t report it..

    Something that was said during this episode or was it 9 I’m not sure.. Kept bugging me. I believe one of the innovators said that Aeolia never made it past the first stage of his plan, he outlined it but never made the preparations for the full 3-stage plan. He got attached to the meisters and didn’t realise the plan further than stage 1 during his life. That explains the twin drive and trans-am, extra protections if unexpected events turn up.

    Yet now whe’re at stage 2 out of three. Back to stage 1, in it tieria was created or altered, i don’t know how innovators are made, but they aren’t natural.. Of course he is not told he’s supposed to die.. And Aeolia apperently didn’t want the meisters to bite the dust. (something like that was mentioned, but I’m to lazy to rewatch 9 and 10).

    So this leaves me with one question. Who made the other innovators? Ribbons didn’t just come out of thin air. Everybody asumes that the new innovator at CB is siding with Ribbons just because she is one. But who is building these things or build these things, I’d like to know..! If it was Ribbons, he would have known about Nena right (she has innovator-like abilities), yet he doesn’t and why didn’t Ali tell Ribbons he saw her.

    Maybe there’s a bigger player on the stage then Ribbons. Obviously Wang Liu Mei knows more than CB and Ribbons, but is there maybe someone we haven’t seen yet, or is she that person? At least I’m certain that Ribbons and CB are just toys for a bigger person who may have adopted and executed Aeolia’s full plan. If Wang Liu Mei can create these persons, it would explain why the enhanced persons (innovators) keep popping up around her, and it could mean that the new innovator at CB isn’t necessarily going to betray them.

    The big guns are out next episode already, so there’s going to be a significant story development soon, I just want to know who’s the master planner of this game to reform the human race.
