The Celestial Being itself was powered by that multiple Tau drive switching system and since it was the housing for Veda it would mean that Veda itself was powered by Tau drives as well, which in turn would mean that the Tau drives must have been created by Aeolia and were part of his plan.

Enough with the analogies already. Whether or not the Masurao/Susanowo was a 'Superflag', an upgraded Flag or a totally new suit that just happened to use Flag designs for some reason really doesn't matter, does it? How would our knowledge of 00 tech increase from discovering which is the true reaso...

I think I saw that tank-like 'proto-EVA' that some people have mentioned in previous threads. Looks like they got it running after all.

People sure like Jupiter as of late. Guess it is kind of an evil looking planet. There are also the exotic gases, the metal core, the abundance of moons and the freaking strongest gravitational pull in the solar system aside from that of the sun. Plenty of opportunities for plot-oriented technologi...

I'm of the opinion that it wasn't so much a Flag + Tau-based systems as it was a bunch of Tau-based systems with the best standard parts the Union had to offer being thrown in to fill the gaps. We have a Trans-Am system, a GN vernier, a bunch of blades, a GN cannon and some awesome Samurai decals, b...

I don't think Sumeragi would have needed to be sure of a Drive coming back before prepping the R2. While the O was closer to combat-ready it was floating out in space. R2 was the only unit they had on board at the time. The only thing they could have done other than prep the R2 would have been to ju...

I think what we're missing is that Season 2 was about Celestial Being versus itself : *On one hand we had the Innovators trying to 'improve' or derail Aeolia's plan with Ribbons pulling as many strings as he could get hold of both inside and outside CB. *On the other hand we had the crew of the Ptol...

The cones were probably the ones used in the new (old?) suits themselves, not those from the 00. The O's had the same 'full power leak' as it had during its first appearance back in season 1 while the R2's could produce the same 'GN Rings' as the 00. It's interesting that before this episode none of...

I have to wonder, however, if we'll ever develop a way of accurately telling if a series is rushed during production or if the writers simply paced it poorly from the very beginning. Not really related to the ending of 00 but since there are people saying the events could have been stretched over tw...

I just realized that with the O they managed to pull off the most extreme example of foreshadowing in the history of anime.

There will be people who say "WANT!" and there will be people who say "DO NOT WANT!" but what will really result in an animation is enough people buying into a given MSV or side story. If lets say the Unicorn and Banshee suddenly constitute 60% of all Gunpla bought then a Unicorn animation would be ...

I wonder what Ribbons would have done with the O's drive if he hadn't found the rest of its body. He didn't have any way to build a new suit after CB was taken.

I don't think they will. Tieria (and Regene, remember?) will probably remain in Veda at least to keep it from falling into the wrong hands, even if they don't decide to use it to Innovate everyone somehow. Lasse will probably be the replacement Meister since he has recovered from his injuries. Then ...

But... Botasky is a sniper now? Who's the radio operator? Then again, the original CS1 didn't have a sniper and backpack radios aren't used anymore so perhaps they just decided to shift the roles around. Sad that Rats didn't show up in the trailer, though. What's the deal with that? EDIT: Waiting to...

Well, the opposition really fell piece by piece. First it was Celestial Being + A-Laws + the Federation against the Meisters. The Feddies sided with the Meisters after the elevator incident, then A-Laws joined during the space battle. After that it was Celestial Being vs. everyone else and when Tier...

It's looking kind of QUALITY there. I guess the actual animation was so AWESOME I didn't notice the perspective errors at the time. Well, Ribbons' previous suit was an RX-78 homage and the Reborn's first form was a Guncannon homage so I guess its alright if there are homages here as well. Ribbons mi...

It would be interesting to see what happens to all the thousands of 'Innovade' (I'm guessing that's the correct term now) clones left in CB. The cameos show that at least some of them have been released but gives us no indication of whether or not they have the same personalities and memories of the...

So... anyone have any idea how many true GN Drives they have left? O's got totalled as far as I could tell, and with the kind of damage it got Cherudim's can't be wholly untouched. I couldn't tell what happened with Kyrios but I'm guessing its Drive was spared. Seraphim's is the only one I'm sure i...

Well... if you feel the series has lost its spark by ep 24 you're not going to get much more out of 25. Ribbons' losing and Aeolia's plan coming to fruition can both be taken for granted and besides a possible hook for the movie or OVA I don't see what other loose ends they have left to tie up.
