There's your usual thread on 4chan and yazi88 mentioned it in his post.
Spoiler
Show
Fram fights Kio, Zeheart fights Asemu, Fram is Dole Frost's sister, funnels everywhere, Spriggan comes to the rescue.
Episode was mostly fightan, but like I said I thought it was really good.

So after nearly three months of nothing, Fram the not-Ruri shows up and does jack squat. I can safely say that I really do not like the Fawnfarisa, it looks and fights like a magic girl. :? At least it knocked FX down a peg. Also, who is this Girad person that suddenly showed up? Does anyone remember he from earlier episodes because I do not. Also, a G-Exes with vagan technology? Seems cool in it's own right.

Girad was mentioned but never shown until the last episode.

And yeah, the Fawnfaria's magical stick should make it obvious, though it also calls the Nobel Gundam to mind (which was also based off a magical girl).

^G didn't take itself seriously like Age so here it is somewhat uncalled for.

The rematch between Asemu and Zeheart gets so exciting though. Though it's the Heart against the Super Pirate.

Fram... was not Magnificent. This episode really felt like nothing of importance happened, mostly because a quarter of it consisted of flashback footage =_=

If it feels like an extra 15 minutes could have smoothed things over by the end, at least we know where to place the blame.

Here is Soma and her daily dose of positivity towards Age:

I actually thought Fram did a good job...considering how she admits that she had almost NO piloting experience and managed to put a stop to Kio and the FX. Do you guys really think Zeheart would have done better? And I am looking forward to this Girad girl...since next episode seems to be completely about her, flashbacks to her defection included!
DuelGundam2099 wrote:^G didn't take itself seriously like Age so here it is somewhat uncalled for.
Have you seen some of the mecha in this show? I mean, sure the flowery petals are a little much...but it doesn't look out of place. I mean what, you have no problem with the Age-3 doing a spinning pose with the Age symbol behind it when it forms...but you have a problem with a little flower power that emulates the Nobel Gundam?

Anyway, I do agree that this show had a little too much on the flashback side, but I think it was to remind us of what happened in the past and set up the next few episodes...you know, just to tell us the sakes. Remember that we haven't gotten a clip-show episode yet in Age...so I guess this could be kind of considered one...

And hey the flashbacks weren't all that useless. It reminded me that when Asemu and Zeheart only worked together in episode 27 because they both wanted to protect the Earth...and yeah they might have had a friendly conversation, but that doesn't make them friends again NOR does it change the fact that they are on opposite sides. So now Zehearts words of "we will settle the score between us this time" make a little more sense. At least in my opinion.

I'm having really bad vibes about being like Destiny here. In short, DO NOT WANT!

It is not so much the flower funnels I have an issue with as much as I do having them controlled by a not-magic wand. Couldn't they have added some spikes and call it a mace? It would make sense for close combat purposes; this just looks like a subpar club. :?

Between visiting Zeheart in the locker room and having Kio call out to her I was expecting Fram to become another Lalah character but, then she just gives him a summary WTF and resumes fighting.
hmmm I wonder if that was a deliberate tease?

Since this thread is almost over, I'll just say a couple of things.

First, Fawnfarsia. Worst. MS. Ever. And ripping off Allenby's fighting style. Major no-no. (and just so you know, I didn't actually have a problem with the original Farsia.)

Second, why did they have to Fukuda us?

Oh and is it just me or has the Gundapedia become very sparse?

really? I mean Really? Be honest with yourselves here people there's no way it could be -that- bad. especially if you liked the original. It's mainly a repaint with a hand held staff.
And ripping off Allenby's fighting style. Major no-no.
same weapon =/= same fighting style I Allenby used a lot more spins and whirls in her combat not to mention the addition of bits. Fran's whip use was more aggressive and unrefined in comparison which makes sense as functionally it is a secondary weapon to the bits.
Second, why did they have to Fukuda us?
You'll have to define what this even means but I'm guessing that has to be about Kio's new motivations and objective. Kira's desire not to kill if possible never bothered me and I fail to see why that bothered everyone else so much.

It's an overly idealistic position, true, but that doesn't mean it's not a goal worth aiming for. World peace and equality may be a practically impossible goal but that doesn't make it worth trying even moving a little bit closer to this can make people's lives better. When you've seen proof that the enemy is as human as you are it it's a pretty obvious position to take if you actually can.

As for the bit with Fram I have to say I liked how that bit was handled she rejected Kio's offer without coming off as outright evil like most people who didn't listen to Lacus and Kira did (especially in Destiny).

It means people complaining about flashbacks because stock footage is a no-no for every anime made after 1999. Western Gundam fans have a reverse hard-on for SEED for stock footage, which does this sometimes, so naturally they take it out on it's creator.

considering the series hasn't had a single clip episode and the fact that the vast majority of this episode is new high quality stuff I don't think this is near as bad as flash-backing from Destiny. Now if they start flash-backing to that scene from the end of Gen Two every time Asemu and Zeheart meet or showing Doles death every time Fram takes to the battle field that might be Fuduka-esce

Meh I was some what okay with the Fawn Farsia as a design the origenal was okay I just hate that they gave it to Fram who kinda expected to sortie in a funnel filled updated Zedas but what I my self most want to know about is this Girard Spriggan character unlike tube guy or Zeheart she seems to be a serious rival potential that and the fact that Zanald is more final boss esq she could be a good true rival

My guess, after Zeheart dies, she'll just Haman herself all over the nearest asteroid.

FawnFarsia actually kinda impressed me IMO. I really liked this episode for its Animation. Best I've seen in a while in AGE. I don't care much for Girard. And Deen's deathflag is kinda gone now :/
Still waiting on seeing those tears of time.
