EDIT: Ya know, a weird yet slightly plausible thought just crossed my mind:
What if China IS Kirara? Like, in her free time she dons a wig and goes around performing on stage with a tube top? That would be crazy.
This was suggested before, and I highly doubt it. Her unfamiliarity with gunpla is shown to be pretty genuine in this episode, so her doubling as a 'gunpla idol' (I assume a 'gunpla idol' is familiar with gunpla) is unlikely.
I agree that this episode feels rushed. Like there was a big chunk missing out of it. One minute Sei's building the Full Package, the next he's already fighting in the tournament.
It did a fine job fleshing out China, though. Her becoming interested in gunpla felt pretty natural.
The old MS dude club is equally funny and saddening. Both because it would totally happen in real life. Hell, it probably already exists. Bunch of old guys, being all proud that they were fans before it was cool, getting all pissy at some kid for never building a gunpla before, cosplaying and seiging. You know people do this.
As for Reiji's story, I have no reason to think he's lying.
