Aquarion EVOL – 19: Fate Altair-ation

Yeah I think a lot of us felt that way...still the one who needs killing is Mikage.

When it rains it pours and as I had feared Mikage has taken dreadful notice of Zessica and made her his unwilling servant. Andy is going through a prolonged period of depression and nothing Yunoha can do seems to bring so much as a respite from the painful loss of Mix. Fudo is still out and about but Mikono shows some rare bit of initiative and heads out to find him. Zessica may have been forced into a Faustian bargain but Mikage does indeed open the Gate to Altair and like Zessica’s damnation.

Upon arriving on Altair the rescue team quickly pieces together the dire situation on Altair. The planet is dying the metal shielding is little more than a poor substitute for an atmosphere and no one on this planet seems to recognize women any more. Fudo may have gone to play with ants but I am glad to see that team selection was spot on for the most part. It is most fortunate that the Alteans have yet to devise a means to counter Yunoha’s powers. Nevertheless they now have a Vector and will soon unlock its secrets. Worse still it by keeping it they have now halved the combat power of Vega.

Yunoha and Zessica start feeling some strange effects from the planet throat issues and feminine itching. It seems that one does not simply walk I to Altair for it is highly likely that the very air they breathe is hostile to women. Jin maybe dead but he left his legacy to Yunoha and through the iVision they were able to obtain the layout of the primary control tower.

Sadly while Andy maybe desperate he is not able to kill without compunction and in the final tally Amata goes to Alicia where it is probable that he will face Izumo. Shrade, Yunoha, and Zessica were pinned down without any idea of what Amata and Andy are doing. Andy gets dragged off after he is overwhelmed and has his position overrun. They now have one day to effect an escape lest the last five Vectors find their way into Altean custody.

Mix is not dead nor is she comatose, however, now that her fate seems to have been altered I fear that Andy and Mix may end up killing each other in the fire fights to come. I do not know if Izumo deliberately repurposed Mix, Donar’s lost love, and Donar’s missing comrade but it is certain that he intends to send them into combat. Altair does not have element users and since those three were the only known Rare Iguras to have made the jump it is very possible that the other two knew Donar. Moreover Jin was the last child born and yet Mix and the others seem to be roughly the same age if not younger.

I don’t think Izumo altered their fate given how desperate he his to find Eve. However I suspect that Altair may well be hostile to women and of the fate of the non-element users that went through the gate we know not. Female Element users seem to be turned into men given how Yunoha  and Zessica had throat issues (deeper voice) and Zessica had stomach problems (alteration of uterus). Perhaps this change is merely physical but the process is, however, by no means quick. Mix had been there for a week and became a guy, it seems Izumo would have little chance to collate data on how it worked his sense of desperation becomes increasingly understandable. It is likely that Alicia is the only woman to have passed through and stayed a woman. However it seems that while Izumo does not have the science to save Altair he does have enough know how to alter the memories of Mix and while he did not find the True Eve he is going to use the three element users as pilots for the captured Vector and standard Gnis. More worryingly however is that now all five Vectors are on Altair and no doubt Mikage will aim to capture them. Izumo might well do the same if only to gain military superiority now that Altair is doomed if he does nothing.

I am surprised that Kawamori has been able to stretch out the suspense. It is killing me inside as I agonize over the fate of Andy and Mix now that fate alteration is in play, I think we all suspected that horrible deaths were the most likely fate of Rare Iguras who warped to Altair. Immortal Andy or no it is very possible that Andy’s torment is just beginning. In fact he seems to be the next candidate for a mind wipe as Izumo seems desperate for element users. Turning into men was something I don’t think any of us could have foreseen. It invites the potential path to salvation but it may well be that Mikage has them kill each other. Still I am praying that Andy’s love will find a way, there will be no neat resolution. Zessica is now a sleeper agent and looks to be fated to betray her friends, I pray for her soul and salvation, but FUCKING MIKAGE. Well at least if Sazanka ever gets scouting duty on Altair she will be a very happy woman for about a week…

ANDY SMASH!

It probably would have been better if they forced you to sortie.

Not much just be patient...

Noble sentiment for one so small.

I am not giving up and so should you.

Ugh...

SHIT SHIT...

LIAR! THERE IS A GULF OF DIFFERENT SO VAST THE UNIVERSE COULD NEVER CONTAIN IT!

NOOOOOOOOO...

I bet you would do that literally...

This Faustian Bargain will not end well...

SHE DID NOT AGREE AWAY WITH YOU DEMON! CURR!

Ugh...at least he didn't steal Zessica's first kiss.

Fuck...I forgive you. You are not yourself.

I guess she avoids triggering her death flag.

I guess Izumo now has the ability to do mind wipes.

I am sure they are, I also am betting that they are not of Altair.

It's the story of your life...

I guess Jin really is missed.

A possible solar shield?

I'll give this to the Alteans when their world was dying they sure as hell moved mountains to respond.

That fucker Mikage beating up old women like that...

Glad you made it but you will not like what you see...

I guess Apple survived, perchance is the Ghost of Jobs still with you?

I guess even the old have forgotten what women look like, that or booze makes you old...

Even in her doom she seeks to do good.

It's more than look mister...

Well they are mostly for nursing babies...

So I wonder if having the Mikage also means that their balls are no more...

OH SHI- Shrade has a NICE IDEA...

...

I don't think Shrade is going to settle for a few coins...

Sazanka would love it here.

Sharde wins, though this would make it Mix's nightmare.

Yeah...

One does not simply walk into Altair for the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume...

Jin covered all the bases, may his legacy lead to Mikage's doom.

Well admittedly Izumo didn't think that Mikage would open the gate for an invasion.

That is some head gear...

Green and Purple huh?

Andy's desperate...

Technically speaking Andy does have a big gun, only he can't fire anything other than AP rounds.

HOLD THE LINE!

If only they brought re-breathers.

I guess Shrade will join Andy in being an Agent of Love.

Something about those eyes...

Well this confirms dude status.

I think St. Patrick is trying to tell you something...

What of the maintenance tunnels or a fire escape? Don;t you build these things to code?

Have you Harry Ord?

I have a feeling as to the why...but Andy isn't monster.

I salute your foresight.

Do You Remember?

Thus did Andy take on the mantle of the hero he aspired to be.

He's going to fly down this trench and fire two proton torpedoes...

You said you wanted to meet again...

Why don't you chase a shiny object too while you are at it?

Happy Mother's Day, by the way.

Just as she was when she left yes?

Glad to have a reunion, but who's the dad?

Andy went down swinging.

Immortal indeed, he fought off a whole company.

For the love of the Trap in Yellow...

Do You Remember Love? Because I am sure Andy remembers you.

    Funny how those Altairian chaps didn’t recognize Zessica and Yunoha as women despite the propaganda images of women in skin tight clothes everywhere. Maybe they were just too drunk. -_-;;

      Maybe they never seen a real one and consider them as mythical as unicorns. Just one was drunk though if the world was ending I probably drink too.

    Yeah, Andy can’t kill BoyMix, but the reverse is true as well.

      Also, even if Altair got all the Evol vectors, Vega still has the advantage, they have the original under their very feet.

        Don’t they need the original to keep Vega alive?

          Even if the Aquarion is needed to keep Vega alive, I’m sure the Aquarion would lend a helping “hand” to Evol when the time comes, Evol seems to be weaker than the original.

            I can buy the helping hand, but it will be limited to defense unless it still has interdimensional powers.

            I think the Aquarion still has its interdimensional powers, and probably has stronger powers, given how it stayed underground and prevented Vega’s energy from rushing out, it could have absorbed some of those energy.

      I hope so, I also hope the change is reversible… Because Boy Mix, I am not sure if Andy has enough charm points left after all that effort to save Mix’s heart.

        Don’t forget Kagura.

          By chance are you implying that Kagura is a Rare Igura? ;)

            Kagura can reverse things. Reverse the gender changing process, problem solved.

    So, am I the only one that sees the symbol that Mikage placed on Zessica’s head as a Pineapple? Poor, poor Zessica.

    But, yeah, when Mikage popped out of the mirror, I started dropping a chain of F-bombs. You know it’s going to end badly for someone. It was one of those “I hate Mikage soooooo much, but he’s such a good villain” moments. It hurt.

    If Andy & Mixx manage to survive the series, do you think Andy will straight out drop “Ai, Oboete Imasuka” on Mixx? It’d be both cheesy and fist-pump inducing. Do it Kawamori!!!

      No… If Kawamori is gonna do “Ai Oboete Imasuka”, looking at the lyrics, one of them might die.
      “Right now, I hear your voice
      saying “Come here to me.”
      Just when it seemed loneliness had beaten me.
      Right now, I see you
      walking over to me.
      I close my eyes and wait for you to come.”

        So many sure portents I pray fervently for Zessica’s, Mix and Andy’s salvation from the devil Mikage.

      The cheesier the reunion of Andy and Mix the better. Though right now I just want it to happen. Zessica’s mark may well be a pineapple but I hope not for if it is the. There may be no hope for her.
