Well, this week’s episode acknowledges the difficulty of repairing Barbatos…that answers the question I’ve have for a while about how Mikazuki can jettison his armor so easily. In short, he can’t. That aside, I guess this week’s episode is dedicated to introducing Naze to the cast…as the harem king. That explains why his crew is all female. I really did like his scene with Orga, though, ridiculing his self-sacrificing nature. I’m really not sure how I feel about Orga and Mikazuki’s relationship. I guess they just both try to work hard for each other…there’s something off about it for some reason.
The preview makes it look like next week’s episode will introduce a new female character…is she supposed to be a love interest for Orga? There’s also a brief flash to a mobile suit head…is that Barbatos? Is that a redesign to get past the problem they’ve been having with a lack of spare parts to repair it? If so, I’m definitely looking forward to it…hopefully the redesign isn’t just limited to the head.
