It wasn’t Prince Ali…honest is he.
It is very fortunate for the A-Laws in their agony to have this great rugged war chief at their head. She is a woman of massive outstanding personality, suited to the sombre and stormy times in which her life has been cast; a woman of inexhaustible courage and will-power and a woman direct and even blunt in speech, which, having been brought up in the most humble of households, I do not mind at all, especially when I have something to say of my own. Above all, she is a woman with that saving sense of humor and honor which is of high importance to all peoples and all nations, but particularly to great men and great nations. Katie also left upon me the impression of a deep, cool wisdom and a complete absence of illusions of any kind. I hope I made her feel that we were good and faithful comrades in this war-but that, after all, is a matter which deeds not words will prove.
I give my regards to the brave commander at the leading edge of our defense against the Kataron terrorists and the bastards of Celestial Being. Though the odds are against us, all is not yet lost. I remember when I was a child, being taken to the celebrated Yazan’s Circus, which contained an exhibition of freaks and monstrosities, but the exhibit on the program which I most desired to see was the one described as “The Boneless Wonder”. My parents judged that the spectacle would be too demoralizing and revolting for my youthful eye and I have waited some 25 years, to see not one but two Boneless Wonders piloting both Gundam Seravee and Gundam 00. – Prince Ali
Kurdistan will never fall to Kataron invasion!
Jihad-kun soiled himself…
Intiating directive 7395 destroy all communists…
November 30th. After getting busted for underage drinking and cocaine use the party goers of notorious gang known as CB were pulled over by Officer Ali with his Gundam Liberty Prime. Thinking that their petty tricks could save them CB members Tieria “Fatty” Erde and Jihad-kun “No Skillz” Seiei refused to obey Officer Ali in a futile bid to defeat the reigning king of the leaderboard in a two on one fight. So it was that Officer Prince Ali made a mockery of Jihad-kun as his vaunted ride, the Gundam 00, not surprisingly Gundam 00 which loathed it pilot refused once again to help Jihad-kun defeat a real ace. After verifying that both were high on lose and operating Gundam under the influence of stupidity, Officer Ali tried to take them into custody so that their parents could pick them up from the county jail. However the delinquents of CB were not in the mood to obey any laws and were intent on at least intervening on one wedding, if not more. Officer Ali was then forced to take drastic action to correct their misbehavior.
Gundam 00 detected probability of mission hindrance…
Tieria’s aim is the very definition of failure.
Tossing the traitor Jihad-kun aside Officer Ali beat down with acceptable force on Tieria, as the pilot of Fatty had plum forgot that his overweight artillery suit was not meant for any serious melee action. Despite the hidden beam saber and the double team Officer Ali was only thwarted when faced with four Gundams. Having forced to console himself with humiliating two CB members and severely damaging one gangster, Officer Ali was forced to withdraw as no support was forth coming as his partner Officer Bushido had been traveling to get a new suit instead of stalking Gundam 00 as Officer Ali expected. Though evidence was gathered and a report was filed the absence of Officer Bushido Bob was keenly felt as two criminals were still at large. Officer Ali was quite vocal about his partner Officer Bushido who for all his permit crap had failed to show up at the appointed time. When he heard that Officer Bushido Bob had been chasing another suit, Officer Ali remarked that it better be a black and it better look like a Flag, though cosplay was again optional, but he would not be surprised if it looked silly.
Red CB losers detected in Federation Air Space engaging with lethal force.
Commencing tactical assesment possbility of Red Celestial Being victory…
Back at their hideout Tieria’s impotent rage knew no bounds as the hated Haptism prevented Tieria from facing justice at the hands of Officer Ali. They tell their newest member Dylandy that Ali had been responsible for taking out the Dylany cartel’s headquarters. Jihad-kun further confesses that he had failed to prevent one of Interpol’s operatives from planting the bomb that claimed the lives of the Dylandy cartel’s leadership. It turns out that Jihad-kun was once cadidiot for Prince Ali’s KPSA unit that had been tracking the Dylandy’s criminal activates that ranged from extortion, racketeering, smuggling, money laundering, making fake Gunpla, peddling the products of the infamous XEDO crap ring, and child prostitution. When asked about his expulsion Jihad-kun in a bid to be cool and counter culture proudly remarked that Officer Ali done so personally on the grounds that any idiot who runs around with a bayonet fixed to his AK-47 all of the time without the order being given was an idiot.
Mr. Bushido has simple needs…
Make it a Flag!
Oh shit late for work again are we? Tell me you plan on showing up five minutes before it ends?
Detective Renge and Lead Detective Ribbons have a falling out over Titeria and for now it seems that Ribbons is still in charge. It seems though that dark purple hair is not only a mark of idiot idolatry, but treachery as well. Officer Andrei takes Officer Louise back to the ship, but ran a background check on her so that he would not have to ask any stupid questions. The damage that the CB gang had done to Louise was far more insidious than any one could have suspected, nevertheless while Officer Andrei fails to make a move and makes some rather insipid remarks. It seems that if Officer Louise cannot be with Soma, at least Officer Bushido Bob has her undivided attention as flew by in his Ahead. Saji on the other hand still thinks he has a shot despite looking awfully QUALITY and is now in opposition to Officer Louise as the newest member of the CB drug ring. Given Saji’s posture and evasive answers it seems that Saji never understood that Louise was dumping him for the sake of revenge. Upon touching down, Agent Kati, Agent Lindt, and Officer Revival began planning an intercept operation to halt the flow of heroin to the colonies adn take out the primary transport, Ptolemaios II. While Agent Lindt remains a superb tactical thinker at the conventional level his inexperience with CB hax gives Katie and Revival the edge. Both decide to adopt most of Agent Lindt’s plans with a few modifications as both were mindful of TRANS-AM and the possibility of their quarry escaping into space. Agent Lindt is incredulous that Revival was showing him up, but Officer Revival had a permit just like Officer Bushido. However unlike that crazy cosplayer, Revival promised to obey Agent Katie’s orders and not give her too much trouble.
I see that after meeting Prince Ali, Jihad-kun desires to flee…may Prince Ali fuck up Azadistan you traitor.
Three times faster?
Patrick is motivated, and he yet lives too…
Mr. Bushido could not wait to go beg Billy for a new suit and demanded that it be painted in his personal colors. Billy obliged Mr. Bushido on the condition that Mr. Bushido destroy CB. Sumeragi and CB decide to flee the Middle East after having achieved nothing of lasting value other than preserve a terrorist group for future annihilation by Officer Ali. In fact such was their fear of Officer Ali that Jihad-kun abandoned Princess Poverty with nary a second thought. Upon commencement of the operation Officer Louise acquits herself well using the later Officer Soma’s Ahead Smultron, not only did she evade the barrage, but also kept shooting until the very end. Officer Patrick proves that he is indeed immortal as he survives yet another encounter with CB. Sadly the space police under Constable Zhejiang did not anticipate a Gundam 00 commercial or that opening of launch bays was possible while going into orbit and structural failure could be averted by TRANS-AM. Thus Constable Zhejiang joined Ming in the hall of dead Chinese of the Gundam 00 series, after he was killed in the line of duty in a shoot out with CB. Having thought themselves safe from Officer Ali, the new meat Linda introduces the O-Raiser for a last minute commercial. Commissioner Homer mourns the loss of his men and decides that he has already lost enough good cops to CB and resolves to appeal to the Ribbons for aid and lights the Innovator signal.
Oh good greif does the cowardice of CB know no limits? Prince Ali I can understand, but running away from Louise? Well then, Be AFRAID! Tremble! Cower! Die knowing you will lose to Louise!
You know…for some reason even Revival is not even close to giving off evil vibes like Wang or Renge, he/she must work harder on that evil smirk…
At least Gadessa lasted longer than the Trilobite, they just don’t make mobile armors like Neue Ziel anymore…
QUALITY animation aside (some of the faces were off and as much as like Katie, the screen caps I got were just too QUALITY, Saji and Andrei deserved it though), it was a decent episode. The fight was much better, though hatefully short this time with Prince Ali demonstrating how once again CB relies too much on Gundam power and thus will always remain inferior to aces like Ali, Ginin, Bob, and the unkillable Patrick. Hopefully this is a sign that there will be fewer balance issues since Prince Ali was able to out fight two Gundams. I hope the Innovators, Bushido Bob, and Ginin will not go down easily since they ought to be formidable, but not all powerful like Prince Ali. Patrick might get shot down everytime, but there is hope yet for Louise if she can be the pilot we all want her to be since the loss of Soma. It was so delightful to see that Jihad-kun was still unworthy of Gundam 00 as he could not defeat Prince Ali with his own power. With any luck Prince Ali will be able to make a mockery out of the O-Raiser and take on multiple Gundams at once. Truly there is no other ace like Prince Ali as it took four Gundams to make him retreat. Sad to see that Ginin was absent, I hope the bloke is still around somewhere. Nevertheless yuri love has made Louise powerful I am glad that this time she proved worthy of Soma’s Ahead and went in with guns blazing, I do hope that Louise becomes a better pilot as time goes on. Andrei was getting rather creepy with his google search for Louise Halevy, but if nothing else at least he wasn’t rude and didn’t pry. Still even if creepy Andrei is preferable to Saji, maybe Bushido Bob will make Louise’s heart go dokun dokun dokun now that Soma is Maried away.
Oh yes, Lindt is being excellent evil by being bullied by Revival, how horrible of Lindt to be made fun of!
I bet Lindt wishes he had one of those…
Are you Army Strong?
Revival does not like to cosplay at work…
Revival was pretty decent this time as he/she was able to give Lindt a fit. Not only does Revival posess the coveted permit, unlike Mr. Bushido Revival is willing to listen to Katie and add some strategic insight where Lindt can’t get past his conventional thinking. This time around Lindt seems even less menacing given how easily he was flustered, along with Goodman it seems that now Lindt is getting a reduction in evil levels. Last time Lindt was sneakily shipping this time he provides the foundation for the plan, but only raises a verbal protest instead of actively sabotaging Katie. While I am sure there are plenty of “kind and gentle war” believers who despise Lindt, this latest incident only reaffirms that for now Lindt is only being a good XO and chief of staff to Katie. It is his right to verbally protest against an operation he feels is flawed, and he is all the better for only pouting and nothing more. Lindt was wrong this time but at least we know that even if he disagrees with Katie he is not yet willing to cross the line and try and ruin her operations.
Seems Revival has better people skills than Tieria.
As is Ginin.
Lindt got pwned…
Katie seems to be on the fast track for becoming a rival of Sumeragi’s with some history. I am still not sure how Billy who was from the Union was misbehaving with Sumeragi of the AEU, but what ever, Sunrise will have their rivalry. Even if Sumeragi was touted as being one step ahead, she did not anticipate Gadessa and it was Katie who found out who she was first, so I put little faith in Sumeragi’s prowess when Gadessa blew them off course, but again it seems the fog of war has no effect on Sunrise’s favored commander. Ah well, at least we got to see a younger though no less lovely Katie. Such a pity Patrick cannot invade Sumeragi’s memories to learn more about his beloved Katie. I am not sure but it seemed as if younger otome Sumeragi had a more modest bust than she does now…perhaps her rack is as fake as her assumed name. I hope Billy was serious about destroying CB along with Sumeragi otherwise the man is even a bigger wimp and bitch for not wanting to deliver justice to the one who killed his friends and betrayed his love.
Poor Patrick never saw Katie dressed like this.
Well Katie was always the sarcastic one, any ways the message went on to say something about wishing Leesa and Billy the best…
Thankfully this time Marie did not make a nuisance of herself in some effort to grow as a character, I still loathe her existence and hope that the Haptism plot line is over and done with now that some interesting things have happened. While we all know Renge and Wang are up to no good for some reason that has not yet been defined, it seems that even Homer is not that bad a bloke. I hope that they will eventually elaborate on Wang’s motivations since they have failed to give us sufficient reason behind her actions. Renge seems to be a doubter of Ribbons, so for now that is acceptable. Homer, Goodman (KFC), and Lindt look far less menacing when compared to Wang at least, and since even the head honcho of the A-Laws is showing little sign of malevolence and much more professionalism I think we are fast coming to the point where the A-Laws might never live up to the Titans legacy. It’s not necessarily a bad thing unless professional soldiers are now the ultimate evil, and with KFC turning to mush at the sight of a couple dancing, Homer showing that he cares about his men, and Lindt acting fairly decently when he was overruled; Sunrise seems less intent on delivering that kick the dog moment for the A-Laws. Perhaps they are little more than a tool for the Innovators, though Homer seems to be aware of a little more than most other characters though he probably doesn’t know enough to act decisively.
Lindt is obisouly sitting evilly in his chair, how terrifying indeed…
Yes it is so evil for a Chief of Staff to protest an operation he feels is flawed…and then take a time out, scary.
One day perhaps Lindt will stop being an asshole and respect Katie for being awesome, a little bit of tact goes a long way Lindt…just saying.
Homer sounded none too pleased to be calling for Innovator help, so it seems that the Innovators are not directly part of the A-Laws command structure, but a group of retainers that the Federation uses, or so they think. Given that Homer is not too trusting of the Innovators perhaps the A-Laws like the rest of the Federation are professional pawns of Ribbons. Now that there might be an Innovator inside CB as well it puts the A-Laws on slightly more even ground as CB. We have yet to see a massacre of civilians and while Kataron seems to be adept at dying, killing them is not really much of a crime as Kataron has announced its hostile intentions, is armed, and was setting up sleeper cells within Feddie territory. Kataron wanted a war to overthrow the Federation and the Feddies seem more than willing to give them all that Kataron wants. Homer lost many good men in his fight against CB so his decision to ask for help was one born of military necessity and compassion for the men he still has left. The man was able to swallow his pride rather than lose more men, and for that Homer deserves at least some decency and professional points.
Real menacing there Homer, really now is this the evil that CB so “righteously” defies?
Unlike Kataron Homer is not a commander who favors the unthinking exchange of lives, thus was born the autamaton. Of course for CB it is far more “humane” to lose real soldiers and write letters home to greiving parents who lost their children…
Yeah Homer is really being evil by having reservations about asking for Innovator help…I can see why Klaus hates them so much, such professionalism certainly has no place in a terrorist band like Kataron.
Unlike the rest Homer knows there is something odd about these Innovators, and its not just how these guys dress either…
Again having Katie and Revival school Lindt on Operational Art did not add to his menacing image that we saw when we first met the guy. Lindt is arrogant, but hardly evil, had he tried to screw Katie over there might have been reason to think Lindt was capable of genuine evil. Protesting verbally and in writing was Lindt’s right as Katie’s chief of staff, he was wrong in this case, but because he behaved and took a time out in his chair it cannot be said that he was doing some excellent evil by pouting impotently. Lindt might have overstepped his bounds in slapping Sergei, but he still hasn’t really acted on his dislike of Katie. Mean words are rather small in the grand scheme of things given how Lindt still does his job as XO and chief of staff diligently. Lindt was able to swallow some of his pride this time as well though if he can ever respect Katie for the good commander that she is perhaps Lindt can be of more use and learn a thing or two. I am still surprised it was Revival with his/her hand gestures that tied Lindt into a knot, I was fairly certain that it would have been Patrick, but I suppose not.
If Saji or Marie pilots this then we know CB is truly evil…
There better be a Flag underneath all that extra armor.
Innovators are Legion. No doubt CB suspects nothing.
If Sunrise is going to change their minds later about the A-Laws they are going to have to stop Homer from caring about his troops, stop KFC from believing in love, and stop Lindt’s losing streak against Katie. Otherwise these A-Laws are being eclipsed by Wang and the Innovators in the evil department. Sure KFC and Lindt have bitched and moaned but neither has actively tried to hurt Katie’s chances of success. Hell KFC hasn’t talked shit about anyone after Katie redeemed herself for the prison breakout, and Lindt still has not gone beyond the asshole XO role. Sure Andrei is impressed by the A-Laws budget, but given how Louise bankrolled much of their funding and how as a rule Spec-ops guys get all the cool toys, it’s not that surprising or evil for the A-Laws to have cool suits. Hell I just by going over the Spec-ops arsenal alone is proof enough that your average Navy SEAL is going to have more pimped out gear than your lowly Army grunt. Strange how Kataron got so many morality pets like Princess Poverty and thier kiddie meat shield and are supposedly the poor oppressed fuckers worthy of protection where as the Feddies are evil for behaving like a professional army with a high degree of competence.
Forwarding this to Prince Ali to add to his hit list, with any luck all of these people will be dead by series end. Come on Sunrise what better way for Prince Ali to be evil than to have him wipe out the Vasty family and completing the annihilation of the Dylandys?
Sup bitch? Ready for round 2?
If Prince Ali kills Nena that would add another family to Prince Ali’s handsome tally of kills, plus he gets Good Karma points to boot.
Well next time we will have some more action and it will be interesting to see if the A-Laws do something dastardly to Kataron now that CB has turned tail and fled from Prince Ali. The preview showed that there might be an Innovator in CB proper, and Nena will be playing out side of her Gundam. Perhaps an epic confrontation between Ali and Nena will take place? If so I hope Ali saves some for Louise…
I like how Louise is keeping Captain Obvious Andrei at arms length…
This Louise is definitely superior to the clueless bint that hunga around Saji.
Correction Andrei, while Piloting Smultron in a cute dress…get your facts straight.
Louise deserves better, here’s hoping for Bushido BobxLouise.
With finals just around the corner my time is limited. But I would like to say one thing about poor space loli: she’s gone from prominent antagonist to CB bridge bunny in one episode flat. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
