Lack of Prince Ali and Patrick makes Soma sad…
We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in Kurdistan, we shall fight on the land and air, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in space, we shall defend our nation, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the deserts, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which we do not for a moment believe, this nation or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Allies beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the new Federation Army, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, Prince Ali, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of Kudistan. – KPSA
I find it ironic that killing Brown Anfs is okay, but kill a blue one and its a war crime…this is nothing short of discrimination based on color.
Oh shit kiddie meat shield failed, now what will Shirin do to make it look like a war crime?
OH SHIT Pedo- Princess is stealling the kids!
So it seems that the A-Laws did not kill children as the false rumors of Kataron and CB indicated. Describing the debacle as a “war crime” Kataron and CB forget that the soldiers of the AEU, HRL, and Union had suffered similar and worse fates in their war against CB dictatorship. Such complaints about the harshness of battle are the mark of silly amateurs and losers who treat the business of war as if it were a small thing. Despite the absence of civilian casualties Kataron was not expecting that the A-Laws would treat them all as combatants and shoot them. Apparently despite all the vicious rumors it was the first time CB had seen an A-Laws operation, and after seeing what professionals are capable of CB cried for hours on end on how the A-Laws did things better.
Sumeragi collapses at the sight of dead bodies and recalls the time when she initiated a blue on blue incident during her time with the AEU. Seems the event took the life of her Emilio who died without regrets and blame for anyone, clearly the stoic nature of Emilio had no influence on the drunken wreck that was leeching off of Billy. It also seems that Katie was on the receiving end of the blue on blue, after recalling the incident Kathy realized that it was Kujou as the sloppiness of her operations was now plainly apparent. Teiria gives a speech about how intervening is always a good thing and how people who give information about terrorist networks are evil. Clearly the idea of pre-emptive strike has not died out in the centuries since Neo-Conservatism held political clout. Strawman Saji then proceeds to weep more for a bunch of Kataron Terrorists than he ever did for Louise and her family. After Prince Ali performed a one man nuke on Azadid and swept aside the hated occupation army and secret police of Azadistan Jihad-kun and Princess Poverty fled the scene once it was clear that the Hero of Kurdistan was there and eager to complete his vengeance against the hated Azadsitani occupier and the traitor Setsuna who betrayed his homeland. After fleeing the battle Jihad-kun wastes no time in blaming the Federation and grossly exaggerating the numbers of KPSA suits involved from Prince Ali’s one to over 9000. Clearly because Jihad-kun never paid attention in school, he could not even count to one and skipped a few numbers.
Come on Katie you did it o Patrick…it’s nothing really. Patton slapped plenty of guys and they still loved him.
Prince Ali has utterly destroyed they hated occupations forces of the Azadistani infidels.
Validating Incest doujins… Siscon confirmed.
Oberst Katie is still uncomfortable with going to war again, but Major Lindt having been in the shit for so long voices how this gruesome business has always been a part of war and how unity in needed now more than ever to face CB and their Kataron cronies. Upon hearing that Sergei did not kill Saji, Lindt was understandably pissed and slapped Wild Bear for not ridding us of that useless strawman character that was created to make Tieria look more awesome despite the immense amount of suck he possesses. Soma starts to suffer for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but upon recalling the wisdom of Patton dons the mask of the warrior who will fight until this war is over or that she is dead. Ginin and his platoon are finally allowed to join Kampfgruppe Katie in their Gundam hunt, Ginin declares that he is fighting to build a better united tomorrow and that he has no regrets. Louise and soma meet for the first time and hit it off, while Andrei thinks that his chances of a three way just went up… Kataron seems to be getting stuff from Wang’s War Supplies Inc. after Nena was allowed to buzz the lovely crater that the A-Laws created. Given how the A-Laws did not kill any children the terrorists of Kataron put them all in trucks with the pedo-Princess Poverty.
No Mein Oberst you are lovlier for you lack of an odor from cheap liquor. Besides your are smarter for haveing better taste in men Patrick >>> Billy.
…and look where it got him.
Oh, how fall you have fallen Kujou, should have stuck with the AEU. Though quite how you ended up fraternizing with the Union adn misbehaving with Billy is something we can’t answer…seems treachery might run deeper than we thought.
The A-Laws spot CB and prepare to sortie against them, but Mr. Bushido is Graham Acre late to the briefing, Oberst Katie does not like this prima donna one bit, but Captain Ginin steps in to diffuse the situation. Ginin remarks about how he wants to see Mr. Permit fight and if he is as every bit good as he says he is. Upon the attack Soma gives Hannibal Haptism a good kick in the teeth. Tieria has nary a kill to his credit as Mr. Bushido proves that Setsuna is still a loser in his vaunted Gundam 00. Clearly Jihad-kun is unworthy of such a fine machine. Louise is positively enamored with Soma as they sit together at briefings and was keen on watching Soma’s back. Sadly that yrui blocker yellow does yet another thing to make me hate her more by interrupting a Louise save. Andrei follows Louise as she goes to give Yellow a punch in the face. Lasse bictches and moans about his inability to pilot and wishes Lichty were there to dhoot, forgetting how Lasse was a gunner on an unarmed ship. Unable to stay their stupidity for much longer they put Strawman Saji behind a trigger. While Louise is starting to become more badass Saji cries and weeps for himself in another sickening display of Saji emotional turmoil that vindicates Lindt’s slap of Wild Bear for letting Saji live.
Well…seeing as how Patrick is hardly on your mind these days, I suppose we may have misjudged you. Though I wonder if you and Kujou were ever meant to be…
Still sad that Prince Ali has not killed some one yet…
Well it seems all that whining and crying about killing of children was all for naught as the A-Laws killed zero kids despite the lies of CB and Kataron. Really it was another failed chance to show the A-Laws as excellent evil. Either war has become something else or that Sunrise is once again dead wrong about war as their attempt at Kataron sympathy was played up once again. This time however instead of courageously hiding behind children, they are now portrayed as defenseless to the point that Saji has to step in and defend them. Oh, how innocent Sunrise believes that Kataron is despite the fact that they have weapons, clearly being a terrorist, or whatever new polite term one chooses to use, makes one an innocent victim of war rather than a perpetuator. Honestly the A-Laws look better and more elite for not killing the kids and making a mockery of the Kataron military build up than CB for protecting an armed terrorist group who takes delivery of war materiel from Ms. Wang through the Nena Express. Right now since Ribbons and Ms. Wang seem to be playing proxy war CB looks all the more stupid for holding on to their idiot idealism, through their continued ignorance of Ms. Wang peddling weapons and info to both sides.
You will be a minister of death praying for war! The deadliest weapon in the world is a Soma and her mecha. It is your killer instinct which must be harnessed if you expect to survive in combat. Your mecha is only a tool. It is a hard heart that kills. If your killer instincts are not clean and strong you will hesitate at the moment of truth. You will not kill. You will become dead Soma. And then you will be in a world of shit. Because Soma is not allowed to die without permission!
I gather it did not hurt one bit, but honestly Wild Bear, letting Saji live was a war crime…many good Feddies will die because Saji lives.
Correction Ali’s attack against the infidel Azadistani occupiers was the first move in reorganizing the Middle East by liberating Kurdistan. Best reorganization EVER.
I hate how Nena was granted Super Soldier powers for the sake of thwarting the Innovators, how this is achieved is beyond me, but given how Ribbons has Soma on his team I can’t wait to see the justification on how Nena is so vital. The only thing I hate more is that Prince Ali was denied a chance to kick ass once again with another fucking re-run of the same clip. This is really starting to piss me off Ali is there but he has not been fighting a Gundam yet. This Gundam teasing has got to cease because it was cut for some rather stupid crap like more Saji the Strawman. Speaking of Saji the Strawman I am sick of the bastard and as such the evil slap that Lindt gave Wild Bear seemed less evil and more justified because Saji still lives to torment us all. Given how much of a sissy and annoying Saji is the only reason why he is even there is to justify Tieria’s bullshit on how people ought to meddle in the affairs of other countries and impose their will on opposing sides. Really now it is this idiot policy of intervention that has caused more conflict in recent memory than it has prevented. Even if you dress it up as a police action it is still in reality a shooting war, I am not sure if Sunrise is being a fence sitter or just plain stupid in decrying the slaughter of Kataron yet endorsing the interventionist policy the Tieria espouses to that Strawman Saji whose only purpose seems to be the butt monkey and the guy who is always wrong. As a foil Saji is already a failure for being unable to defend his position in the face of Tieria’s warmongering. I cannot believe that after not killing the kids that we are to believe that the methodical killing of Kataron without collateral damage was meant to make us dislike the A-Laws. It seems that for Sunrise war is now a polite affair where any killing is abnormal, in short it is not longer a brutal affair about killng but a polit picinic of sorts where flowers bloom.
This comrades is a real hero, the badass normal mecha grunt, with 0% bullshit and 100% ass kicking.
Semper Fidelis Soma.
Hell Yeah Confession Time!
Glaring hypocrisy aside I find it a bit strange how Sumeragi was with the AEU and ended up with Billy from the Union, given her stronger ties to the Union guys back in S1 It was strange to see her as Katie opposite in the Blue on Blue incident. Still I guess they are trying to set up Katie and Sumeragi as rivals for S2, sad to see that Wild Bear has been sidelined though. I can understand not liking the idea of having to kill, but having sympathy for your enemy makes you liable to hesitate, and when that happens you are dead. Even if Lindt is being a jerk he’s essentially right in his brutal and honest sentiment that war is dirty business. Even if he’s being mean to Katie and slapping Sergei over letting Saji live, he has yet to do something awesomely evil. Again being a jerk is not the same as being a crook, and at least Lindt is not lying to himself about what the nature of his job is. Even if he isn’t the nicest guy around he’s the kind of SOB lunatic like Patton you call upon to win a war, he’s not a pleasant bloke, but he does his job and doesn’t suffer from emotional turmoil in the heat of battle. There is no substitute for victory after all, nor is there room for second place. War was declared by Kataron 3 years ago, and the Federation would be dumb for wanting to play nice and losing.
i so want to join the A-Laws now… Space Loli and Rich Ojou-chan mecha pilot, DO WANT.
Hell yeah yuri three way up front, A-Laws rule…what was that Bob?
I see Captain Ginin is capable of sarcasm as well…
Speaking of Kataron it seems that after a scant year they were already hostile to the Federation long before the A-Laws were formed given how the latter are still making solicitations and expanding from their one ship. It seems that unless the A-Laws had been a useless department since the Federation was formed, that they were formed in response to Kataron arming itself. Kataron looks less and less innocent and benign given how they have been amassing weapons for the better part of three years and are accepting deliveries of weapons and equipment from the Nena Express. Thus far, despite the propaganda that they are heroes, they have been the guys using kiddie meat shields, and spending vast amounts of money for arms rather than peaceful reconstruction. As the show lumbers on I am getting less sympathetic to Kataron and more supportive of the A-Laws how have not killed a single kid with their “evil” automatons. Klaus seems wary of CB as well and now Lyle will be spying on CB for him.
I am going to cut across their axis and try and draw their fire, get set up for your attack run Gold 1.
Not only is yellow full of lose and fail, but so is the ship it seems.
As I have said before the A-laws just get more awesome, Katie soldiered on after the blue on blue in stark contrast to how Sumeragi dealt with her loss through blaming the world, booze, and Billy. Ginin is not bothering with the pointless sophistry of war, Lindt is being brutally honest about the nature of war, and Soma has gotten out of her civilian mindset. Louise is getting better as time goes on, in the past she was one of the more annoying aspects of the show, but now not only is she taking pointers from Ginin’s school of grunt suit piloting, but is eager to avenge herself on the hated CB terrorists who killed her family. I like how Louise hooked up with Soma and look forward to them being best friends if not yuri friends. Andrei seems smitten with this new and improved Louise, I can’t say I blame the guy seeing as how he’s showing more interest than Saji ever did. Louise found her answer as Saji still searches in vain for his. Mr. Bushido is probably a bigger asshole than Lindt at this point given how he showed up late and was no less disrespectful to Katie than Lindt. At least Bushido Bob is a good as he says he is. Ginin’s handling of Mr. Bushido was masterful as he stopped Katie and Bob from duking it out (Katie would have won by the way). Ginin is fast becoming the Machida of this series for being badass and awesome given his short life expectancy. So far Captain Ginin is proving his worth by being a mediator, ace, and a leader who did not abandon Louise. Hopefully Captain Barack “Badass Normal” Ginin will live longer to make sure that Lousie never become s a pile of lose and fail and that Mr. Bushido does not get his face re-arranged by Katie for his insubordination.
This Louise is so much better than the one from S1.
This Bushido Bob Cosplay really cuts into the awesome factor, still I guess it is most befitting of Jihad-kun to get beat up by the most silly Char clone to date.
Even if Soma Smirnov sounds silly it still looks great, still Soma x Louise 4TW!
The absence of Patrick and Prince Ali was lamentable, but at least the A-Laws are starting to push towards excellent evil by slapping Wild Bear. Still the A-Laws are darker edgier cops for the simple reason that they did not kill a single kid while annihilating armed Kataron members. Coupled with the fact that it was not entirely unjustified for the simple reason that it was because Sergei let Saji live, the A-Laws are still leagues away from being the new Titans. It would be different and interesting if the A-Laws never become the new Titans and everything is really just a proxy war between Ribbons and Ms. Wang. Still I remain cautiously optimistic given how the kids were spared and the sympathy card was then wasted on dead terrorists. I really want to see Saji dead to kill the lame strawman arguments that have been put forth about war; it is hideous hypocrisy to decry the horrors of war and yet promote some idiot interventionist military policy as a means to achieve peace.
Still next time we are in for a stranded island ep for Haptism and Soma. Given how these have played out in the past I confess that I am not looking forward to it. Not only have the recent marooning eps been less than stellar, but this further delays some awesome Prince Ali action and keeps Patrick away from Katie. If they try to go serious with Haptism and Soma I prophesy that they will be doomed to fail yet again, romance has never been the strong suit of any Gundam series. The tolerable ones have played out like fairy tales while the recent ones are well…forgettable.
I’m back to normal writing mode this week after I was sucked into Crusader’s propaganda mode for last week’s episode. I did enjoy myself, however. First off I’d like to point out how hilarious it is that Tieria is going around slapping people, because as I’m sure you’ve noticed, he’s quite feminine looking. Saji certainly deserves it, and more. I do like the point Tieria was making, that people like Saji who swear it has nothing to do with them and run away are big fucking pussies who mess things up for everyone else.
Ah, your tears of soul-crushing despair taste so good. If this show has accomplished one thing, it has completely and utterly ruined the life of the most annoying character in the show. First off, I generally hate male characters past middle school age who refer to themselves as “boku.” Especially ones who say it like such a wimp. For a good contrast, look at Suzaku from Code Geass. Now I don’t like his character, but at least his bokus were manly for the most part.
Whoa whoa whoa! Taken out of context that could mean something really right and/or wrong! I’m not sure whether to praise or berate Setsuna.
Backstory?! Nani?! Mannequin and Sumeragi were super tactical geniuses and Sumeragi got her boy toy killed because of misinformation and her tactical decisions? Dai shokku!
I DUB THEE THE CRYING EPISODE
Otome da! Oh man, the other week I mentioned a Dickhead Son of Bear and Loiuse hookup in jest due to the OP, but Sunrise does not disappoint. How freaking hilarious would that be. I love you Sunrise.
Yes, shoot at Louise! Oh god the awesome hilarity of this episode did not cease, even as it neared its conclusion. Son of Bear will bathe in Saji’s despair whilst boning Louise with a smile. That is my fake prediction.
