Theoretically, you could create thrust using the pressure of the particles coming out of the saber if the containment field is breached. Which, is what happens underwater, outside of Wing, which is why you see them hold the sabers against the target before igniting them. Though it would be akin to holding on to two bottle rockets, and hoping for the best, which Io' was pretty desperate when he tried it. The amount of mass, and drag on the Gundam in the water would make the results of doing such at thing though, next to nothing just like in the show.

how about that part where Io used the Beam sabers as a way to rise up?
That actually seems somewhat viable in that he's creating a hot area of water which will rise and take him along with it if nothing else. Not true "thrust" really, but given how beam sabers tend to flash heat water, it seems as plausible as anything else.

The whole "Newtype mind-control Oldtypes" makes me want to ask these two questions:

1. Are Oldtypes really justified in fearing and hating Newtypes?

2. How does the normal Federation citizen think of Newtypes? Or are they even aware of their existent?

Also, the scene where Bianca uses her rifle is kind of briliant, if you think about it - why did the federation outfit their pilot with a normal telescopic scope instead of a more compact electroptical sight? Because the rifle is inteded to both be a self-defence and a survival tool, and you are going to need both of the telescopic scope's magnification power and rudgedness.

I remember that in the manga, in so far it has been hinted that the reason why that monk guy from South Seas Alliance could seduce so many people, including former EFF and Zeon soldiers, to his side is thanks to the research into brainwave by that Sexton guy. Or am I mistaking it?

Well, I don't follow the manga (EXA and Super Class G Gundam already drain my budget). But I would like to guess that it isn't full mind control but rather something close to D&D's suggestion spell.

Woah! Two major updates on the leading ladies of this series. One has mentally regressed to a child and thinks her paramour is her father. I really don't know if I go through what Daryl is going through right now. The other lady looks to have joined a rebellious faction that is going to be fighting against the military she had once been fighting with. /shakes head/

The seventh OAV was definitely interesting! It is good to see Thunderbolt keeping up with the combination of gritty war story, UC-style adventure, and mecha porn.

Reborn Again: Karula, poor thing. She got the last-minute save, but in UC last-minute saves are never easy....or cheap.
Tin Man: Daryl, although his heart is not so much missing as hiding.
Cyber upgrade plz: Is it too much to get Daryl some arms with 5 fingers yet?
Best Girl: Bianca. That is all.
Angry Tech: Do not immediately smash your new MS and make your chief mecha tech angry! :lol:
Acguy Periscope: Yeah. 8) Now I want them to make a HG parts set.
Base Y'ha-nthlei: That was cool, even if I knew about it already.
Non-MInovsky weaponry: Isn't it great when the story actually plans it smart? :)
If it hadn't been for that damn kid: One day Zeon leaders will learn that to guarantee success, they will have to issue a kill order for every cute kid near the objective.
Frikkin' Newtypes: Gain psychic power! Save comrades and influence battles! Gain the respect and rank of Rodney Dangerfield!
Dead Chick Talking: WTH?!? She is dead! Io knows she is dead!! WTFH?!? (It's a great cliffhanger.)

But did she die in the first season. The last time we saw her she got ejected from the Beehive into space and not directly killed. My guess, is that she was recovered by the Monks that we see early in this season and she may have lost some memories or something. Maybe. I don't know.

Word, man. Io and the audience are in need of some answers, straight up! This cult with the big Feddy domain seems like they know a lot of stuff, are doing a lot of stuff, and no one seems to be keeping track of them.

Kuruni: It was a great song, sort of like a SE Asian meringue. Almost too upbeat to be a Gundam song.
