The battle from the first episode ends pretty quickly this week…running out of fuel was kind of a lame gag to use in my opinion. Other than that, the episode is actually pretty quiet. It seems like the kids are planning to force their independence, though, which may be the event that leads to the typical Gundam series journey (usually involving some sort of ship that is manned by the main characters). As a side note, I want to point out that I was a bit sad that Mikazuki threw his spear like the weapon was intended to be used and it was largely ineffective…why give him a spear?
This week’s episode also gives us an ending song for series…I’m not a huge fan of the song, especially how it starts. Next week’s episode looks to be a fight between Mikazuki and Crank, showing off a bit more of the Gundam’s capabilities. If I had to take a guess, I would say that the likely outcome of the fight would be Crank’s death, leading Ein (the other enemy survivor) to vow revenge against the Gundam…maybe even donning a mask. He seems to fit the bill.
