Now that Prince Ali is in Future Century otherwise known as Valhalla, he decided to enter the Gundam Fight…
In the first place, I deny everything but what I have all along admitted, the design on my part to free the slaves… The word of God teaches me that all things whatsoever I would that men should do to me, I should do even so to them. It teaches me, further, to “remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them.”… I believe that to have interfered as I have done as I have always freely admitted I have done in behalf of His despised poor, was not wrong, but right. Now, if it is deemed necessary that I should forfeit my life for the furtherance of the ends of Azadistani “justice,” and mingle my blood further with the blood of my comrades and with the blood of millions in that slave country whose rights are disregarded by wicked, cruel, and unjust enactments by the Azadistani occupier, I submit; so let it be done! Let me say, also, a word in regard to the statements made by some of those connected with me. I hear it has been stated by some of them that I have induced them to join me. But the contrary is true… There is not one of them but joined me of his own accord, and the greater part of them at their own expense… Now I have done. I, Prince Ali, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty world can never be purged away but with blood. You may dispose of me very easily. I am nearly disposed of now. But this question is still to be settled, this slavery question, I mean; the end of that is not yet. – Prince Ali to the Trial System, in the aftermath of the GN Burst
Don’t make a mess of it – shoot straight, you retard. – Last words of Prince Ali
Eine Kugel kam geflogen:
Gilt’s mir oder gilt sie dir?
Sie hat ihn weggerissen,
Er liegt zu meinen Füßen
Als wär’s ein Stück von mir
Als wär’s ein Stück von mir
Will mir die Hand noch reichen,
Derweil ich eben lad’.
“Kann dir die Hand nicht geben,
Bleib du im ew’gen Leben
Mein guter Kamerad!”
Mein guter Kamerad!
No summary since I am still mourning the loss of my liege lord Prince Ali and have yet to compose and Epic in his honor. It is a sad day, a tragic day, as the Gundam franchise has lost one of it’s most gifted pilots. Prince Ali joins the likes of Anavel Gato, South Burning, Norris Packard, and Ramba Ral in the Tomb of the Badass Normals. Prince Ali was laid low with a most vile deus ex machina at the moment of his triumph as he tore the hated Lyle, last of the Dylandy Clan, a new ass hole. Just as victory was assured did the GN sorcery conspire against him and his Gundam was shut down while Lyl’e unholy machine remained functional. So it was that the hero of the Kurds the only one who remained defiant unto death against the Azadistani menace succumb to Lyle’s cheap shot, while the idiot rabble sing the praise of Lyle, those who know the truth can only scoff at the prevailing ignorance. Only through a mighty hax did the mighty and noble Prince Ali fall. Thus ended the legend of the only character that sought relentlessly to restore the old ways laid down by Lord Tomino. His death signals the end of the age of Tomino and the coming of the age of the Jesuses, when generations look back to the Golden Age of Tomino they will remember the last man that tried to restore the old ways before the rise of overpowered teenagers that were as bland as dirt.
Yes, today Prince Ali got the first two of his 72 virgins, God was kind enough to reduce their ages.
Welcome to hell Neil. BTW this is Prince Ali’s heaven.
I guess this isn’t going to happen…
I don’t give a toss any more this won’t be anywhere near as great as the Macross Frontier finale, and mostly because Jihad-kun puts Jesus Yamato to shame and what Ribbons pulled out better be the best damn Guncannon there ever was, but still it wasn’t Hi Nu Gundam 00 Raiser nor is it the coolest looking thing EVAR from the waist up. Also the dead started talking… So In the end Louise was not able to become a Gato level Mobile Armor pilot but she did try and to be fair the GN Burst was inevitable since the writers have been relying on deus ex machina since the creation of the Trans Am crutch with they have used again and again. At least the last of All Woman Soma Loving Louise gave one last hurrah and tried to strangle Saji to save the series, it was bold effort worthy of mention. To be fair the writing staff ought to be commended for consistency even if excessive use of the deus ex machina outside of comedy is the last refuge of a writer afflicted with writers block or in our case the first refuge of inept writers who can’t seem to do things in any other way. It was expected that Jihad-kun would either have another Trans-Am trick or for once they surprise us and kill people off. In then end even they killed people off the dead started talking, and I thought Minovsky particles were broken at times.
Indeed all Billy wants is some Sumeragi lurvin…consent is optional.
Nice try Lasse, but your no Flag Fighter…
Thing is Howard Mason is cooler than you…
Ah well it was pretty light show even if Prince Ali was slain through the biggest hax of the season as Arche shut down as Lyle was about to lose, proving that in lieu of developing a pilot from green rookie to hardened vet they can always use deus ex machina and upgrades rather than expend effort to show it. Some how Prince Ali forgot that he specialty was in knife fighting and to his cost Prince Ali drew a gun instead. Still at least Prince Ali had a good run and killed plenty of people before his Yazan powers were simply too much to the pretenders to Tomino’s legacy to bear. Indeed with the ritual slaying of Yazan’s heir and the impending doom of Amuro to the franchise’s second Jesus, Sunrise has made a clear signal that they refuse to be in Tomino’s shadow. Funny how Gundam started out as a mecha series that diverged from super robot shows and the latest trend now is pulling in the opposite direction. Still G Gundam is the best of the Super Robot members of the Gundam franchise and Jihad-kun will never be a cool as Master Asia no matter how much hax Jihad-kun brings (In fact Master Asia could pwn Jihad-kun with a scarf). Well if nothing else they can claim that they wrapped up everything, though as always I disagree with the notion that deus ex machina at this level is a sign of competent or half way decent writing in anything other than a comedy, still there are literary critics who defend its excessive use, but I am not one of them.
Let’s hope you still have some of your old Newtype powers Ribbons.
Oh Tieria, Ribbons didn’t “ask” you to wear a dress to party…
IT WAS MANDATORY!
So the big wishy washy incredibly preachy idealism that reigns supreme in Gundam 00 is that telepathy will bring us all together, anyone who supposes this is both young and naïve or old and incredibly stupid and possibly a hikkomori. First off I can think of plenty of people whom I rather keep my thoughts hidden from and I am sure that you don’t want Dick Cheney probing your mind even if he doesn’t mind you probing his. Secondly I doubt that loli-loving otaku want to be broadcasting their thoughts to their intended targets or the police. Thirdly we already have a communication network that everyone can use, it’s called the internet and it has yet to, and perhaps never will, bring world peace. Fourth I don’t want to hear Al Franken/Ann Coulter 24/7/365. No the critical thing that this shit idea ignores is the problem of respect, even if one understands, the opposition’s respect is never guaranteed. Still telepathy is a wonderful tool of torture there are many whom I would eagerly condemn to share thoughts with Bill O’Reilly mostly since it’d be painful for both. If this were ever possible I’d like to field test it first on anyone who thinks that this would be a good idea. The truth is though if you think about it humans are sick, and you really don’t want to know what other people think, after all I have never met a person who never lied. If anything since the only way to prevent unwanted broadcasting of thoughts is to kill its source. Telepathy is hardly a means to end war, in fact it simply changes the casus belli a bit to include “shut the fuck up” as the basis for a declaration of war.
That’s not a proper stance Lyle…
I suppose Captain Obvious here was just too important to let die, ah well at least they kept his character consistent even if it remained static.
This no Hi Nu, boy. No Hi Nu! (I think those are cannons on the shoulders but we shall see.)
Still it wasn’t all bad, Lasse’s attempt at being Graham Acre was certified FISSION MAILED and Sumeragi will have to put up for Billy (contrary to what an idiot shipper would believe, being with Billy is a fate worse than death). Tieria might be physically destroyed but Desu Yellow can still make love to the primary server and strip for it, though to be honest the server would only over heat for Lockon. Lyle lives and will have to wank off for the rest of his life now that Anew is in another world though he too can try and locate the server with Anew and try some innovado S&M, there will be random electrical shocks me thinks. Andrei gets to live longer to mark the apologists as certifiably insane or otherwise mentally deficient given how Andrei had little development to speak of and is a chauvinist creep who killed his dad for an Ahead. Also coupled with the most of the protagonist couples and main cast being generic and bland, one has to wonder if this really is a 180 from GSD. I am being overly mean; certainly given the intended audience in mind Sunrise will make a few bucks as otaku everywhere bankrupt themselves getting model kits, me being one of the legions of suckers. Well at least I still have IGLOO, and maybe Gundam 0081 supposing it’s playable and is released in the US.
I wonder what the announcement at the end will be; so far it seems that the 30th anniversary is a huge let down as Gundam 0081 is only confirmed to be a PS3 Game (which better be better than Crossfire) and bad economic times, means only the well off will be able to see the RX-78-7 in all its glory. Besides the end will be a good light show and I want to see Patrick eating pineapple cake at end. Also Bob will embarrass himself one way or another so at least comedy will ensue. Leaderboard is down for a moment of silence to honor the passing of the top player, it will be back tommorrow.
Well Patrick will be back next time.
Well now that both are dead no need to part, eh?
Of course being Japanese and male Saji just had to try and rape Louise…
No, I’ll never join you. You have failed Saji. I am an Otome like Soma before me.
You are unwise to lower your defenses!
You underestimate the power of the Yuri. If you will not get off of me you will be destroyed.
Young fool only now at the end do you understand. Your feeble skills are no match for the power of Yuri. You will pay for your lack of vision.
Now Saji, you will die… (and that’s how it really ended.)
Hi this is Mayu…
Then again we might get Hi Nu gundam 00 Raiser afterall, I am hoping for a good fight. Thank You Comrade Myssa.
Well at least Prince Ali eneded his career on a high note.
