This whole episode was bullshit. HD bullshit with pretty beam weapons and better animation than episode 6, but still bullshit. Anyway, the final line by Amuro Ray the narrator did manage to catch my attention for about five seconds. Which is amazing because the line doesn’t even last that long.

Gundam 00

Gundam 00
“Setsuna meets the person of his destiny.”

Oh Amuro, how you have fallen… But that aside.

Marina is finally going to do something beyond her current sad-girl-in-snow-desert role! Oh wow! Shokku desu! Also, Setsuna looks like he’s about to plant a knife into her abdomen.

Okay, you got me. I am just lazy to make a full post on an episode that’s pretty much one part well-budgeted fighting scenes and one part teenage angst. Also, it’s 3:50am in the morning and I need to get some sleep.

P.S. Season 2 of G00 is confirmed for October 2008, leaving the half-year slot from April free for a still-unconfirmed Code Geass season 2.
