I guess this week’s episode was devoted to allow Teppei and Daichi show off to Salty Dog. One could only hope they would be more amenable now that their Cerberus defense system failed so horribly. I’m also guessing that the backdoor Akari found this week to shut down the Kiltgangs is useless going forward? The fact that she seems so useful as a hacker really suggests that there won’t be another engine for her to pilot.
I can’t believe they devoted time this week to showing the expansion sequences for both Nebula and Earth Engines. Imagine how much time will be wasted when they decide to expand all three. Anyway, the preview looks like Salty Dog is still going to be the main obstacle for the time being. I’m assuming the Planetary Gears are going to take some time to get ready for their full invasion. Is that going to be before or after Globe’s full invasion?
