Meanwhile, McGillis explains his side of the incident to the Seven Stars council, placing the blame on Iok. Refusing his order, Tekkadan battles Teiwaz in Mobile Suit combat, but unaware to them, the Mobile Suit battle is a distraction for several Tekkadan troops led by Orga to infiltrate and hold the Teiwaz members as hostages. I thought it was a fantastic directorial decision not to show Mikazuki's face in his despair, but rather to show the concerned faces of the people who care about him most while Mika keeps his back to the audience. Akihiro's unit scrambles to defend the plant, but the Hashmal wipes out a portion of the plant with its beam cannon. Lauren writes about anime and journalism at. As a reward for their success, McMurdo Barriston gifts Tekkadan with Chryse's largest half-metal mine, where Tekkadan later discovers a Gundam Frame and another object larger than a mobile suit.
Tekkadan and McGillis retreat from the mining plant, while Iok is forced by his comrades to fall back as well. However, Gaelio intervenes in the Gundam Kimaris Trooper before Mikazuki can finish Carta and escapes with her in tow. There's the Riot Games walkout to protest the company's awful policies on reporting harassment in the workplace, there's the allegations of human refuse pile Randy Pitchford stiffing money and getting physically abusive wit. I believe everyone is missing a lot of the prior context from the early episodes. As McGillis broadcasts his speech worldwide, he is interrupted by Gaelio, who declares his intent to defeat his former comrade. This week, Micchy and Andy weigh the pros and cons of this relaxing anime series. Meanwhile, the crew of the Hotarubi arrive within the Earth orbit, but are not permitted to launch a shuttle due to Arbrau's state of emergency.
He had goaded Carta to accept a suicide mission so he could take her place. Tekkadan further interrogates Radice, who attempts to talk his way out until Takaki asks to deal with him personally with Mikazuki's gun. When Makanai wins the election, Orga gives his comrades an order not to die on the battlefield until the cease-fire signal takes place, as their mission is now complete. Gaelio confronts Mikazuki while Ein, now in a powerful mobile suit with his own Alaya-Vijnana, quickly overpowers and destroys all the other Tekkadan suits. Merribit sees it as a bad omen. Meanwhile, Naze brings up McGillis' proposal of giving Tekkadan full authority of Mars to Teiwaz, which raises concerns and arguments from McMurdo and Jasley respectively.
Rustal instigates a maneuver using a hijacked revolutionary fleet Graze and firing a Dáinsleif toward his own fleet to justify a massive counterattack with the railguns, which leaves a majority of the revolutionaries' fleet destroyed or crippled. The wheel of fortune is especially tumultuous in a Gundam show—your enemy today may be your ally tomorrow, and your ally today may be dead in a week. Kinda comes with being a series that solely exists to sell toys. Chad is the audience stand-in as he runs around being surprised, but this wasn't telegraphed at all! Unexpected reinforcements arrive, which sees the plan to its success. One month later, Orga reports to McMurdo about the incident and Gjallarhorn's searching for other Calamity War remnants on Mars. I think it's an effort to continue the long tradition of Troubled Gundam Pilots, without much success.
Both reminisce on and express their regret over the tragic ends of McGillis and Tekkadan, though resolve to keep moving forward. Luckily for me, I'm well practiced in the art of not making snark. In addition to fending off Gjallarhorn's mobile suits, Tekkadan's pilots must also make it to safety of the landing craft before reentry or risk burning up during the descent down to the surface. We've gotten so used to dancing around the harem trope in anime that it's surprising to actually see it acknowledged, with such forwardness that it makes Kudelia blush. Mari Okada and other staff members protested the idea and had the ending rewritten as a result. Orga contacts Naze, who tells him not to worry about the Turbines and to continue his focus on Tekkadan. Meanwhile, McGillis battles Gaelio, but his left hand gives in from his stab wound and Isurugi sacrifices himself to block Gaelio's drill knee attack.
There, the leader of Tekkadan, Orga Itsuka, senses an attack from a new enemy. This week, Nick and Steve find out if this mobile game adaptation lives up to its hype. Later, Rustal grants Julieta her request to become the test pilot for Gjallarhorn's new machine, which is powerful but unstable. Orga and Mikazuki visit Gyojan and demand compensation for Tekkadan's losses against the Dawn Horizon Corps, with Mikazuki executing him for being unable to pay reparations, while the rest of Terra Liberionis is later apprehended by Gjallarhorn. Later, Eugene and Akihiro corner Radiche, demanding Galan's whereabouts.
Furthermore, Nobliss Gordon has ceased funding Admoss Company and will only restore it if Kudelia cuts her ties with Tekkadan. Frustrated and disparaging, Shino charges forward in a run toward the enemy fleet, before his mobile suit is pulverized from return fire. Mikazuki arrives in the Barbatos Lupus to save Ride from the Pluma swarm before setting his sights on the Mobile Armor. Meanwhile, Gjallarhorn's garrisons in Arbrau have been forced to remain on their bases, unable to intervene or report outside Arbrau. Introduction Over three hundred years have passed since the Calamity War, the great conflict between Earth and its outer space colonies. While largely forgotten, Tekkadan's surviving members live on with new identities in the Admoss Company, Sakura's orphanage, the Martian Union and the Kassapa Mobile Worker Factory, with all of them remaining in touch.
Instead the writers take the lame route and put almost no effort into it. During another meeting, McGillis asks Orga to further help in his quest to reform Gjallarhorn; for once he succeeds, he will bestow all of Gjallarhorn's authority on Mars to Tekkadan, making them the true rulers of the planet. The Hashmal breaks through Tekkadan's defenses in the gorge while Julieta prevents Iok from attacking it once more, as his heavily damaged Reginlaze will only be a distraction. Amida rushes to protect the transports, but is cornered by Julieta and her Reginlaze Julia. Hush is mortally wounded and dies during the battle, while the heavily-damaged Gundam Kilmaris Vidar manages to cripple the Gundam Bael and seriously wound McGillis as the two crash into Rustal's ship. As the Isaribi faces the might of Gjallarhorn's fleet, Kudelia broadcasts her message to the people. Is it just me, or does really suffer when it doesn't make the Gundam an integral part of the week's plot? Just as Tekkadan encounter the Dawn Horizon Corps' fleet, they discover that the pirate faction has outnumbered them by towing the majority of their ships unpowered behind the lead vessels.
