True, which gives me hope it will return. Prototype mobile armors usually translate to bigger, better ones.
Lets hope Armorzagan's next return is capable to swamp against those Lunarians. LOLOL

Did I miss a memo or something? Why do people care so much about the Armorzagan?

It's a pretty cool design? At least it's one of my favorites, besides the Hecate and G-Self Reflector pack.

Isn't Armorzagan amazing even its a prototype?? It seems that they buff Armorzagan too much for its really agile speed,and insane beam spam and speedy mid-air transformation.

1) The last known MA similar to the Armorzagan's agile speed is the Val Walo from Stardust Memory 0083. The design really resembles UC MS like Khyshatria, Quin Mantha for the Wing Binders. To think that Inspector General Surugan revives UC tech to counter the threat from the moon, so it made more sense that they actually incorporated UC tech into their own Mobile Suits, such as the Hecate-Rick Doms and Jahannam-Zaku.

2) Last known speedy transformation MS is the Abigor from Victory...

It carries a lot of resemblance as well. But lets don't forget that the Armorzagan is huge and faster than F-RUGs or Doubeys as a mobile suit base jabber too. The speed is insane when u see the beginning of episode 9 when Armorzagan launched from Bequest Island...

Since the Mack Knife is designed as an ultralightweight MS that can fly on the atmosphere without transforming and made for acrobatic combat. Those acrobatic skills performed by the Mack Knifes is remarkable!! Surely one of the most memorable moments of old school gundam battle history apart from Dellensen's Chesto!!!!! Btw, those acrobatic skill performed by Mask and Bunny Haman looks cool and awesome though!!

Pah, that was nothing compared to that maneuver that Barara pulled off this time.

Acrobatic/dancing mobile suits in a real robot setting is new. Can't tell whether Tomino's daughter helped with the MS dance choreography as well.

The crotch missiles are the kind of thing I like about Tomino Gundam. MS might use humanoid form but they aren't bound by it so it makes sense to have weapon systems in ways humans can't. Makes more sense to me then giving them hand carried rocket launchers. CE seems particularly guilty of making everything handheld.

Well, CMIIW, but the logic behind mobile suit's humanoid form is because its weapons can then be interchangeable and designing weapons can become easier because you can mimic human's weapons.
Then again you have Heavy Arms and Zssa that has weapons all over their bodies...

I am starting to doubt Klim's genius claim, after all the stealth knocks Mask and circumstances in general put on it in the last episode. But I am glad he did the title drop.

Gee Aida, have fun going to the Moon on your own, you impulsive lass.

Does Bellri still not recognize Mask? How does Aida recognize him but Bell doesn't even have a clue?

Always a good day to see Klim Nick get pwned. 8)

I know, right?

How often do you see people that were just fighting each other crammed into a small space together? And then forming this coalition?

I just gotta say, I'm liking this series more and more. :D

I'm starting to think the Klim is this series Patrick Colasour. Everything he tries to do seems to backfire on him in some way or form. This makes me wonder if we should start calling him the "Immortal Genius" Nick Klim.

Yeah, aside from some fairly impressive showings in mecha battle (all losses or draws since after his first intro episode) and moments of strategic awareness here and there he hasn't lived up to the title "Genius" as often as it is thrown out there. He seems smarter then his father but he really wouldn't be alive if he didn't have Bellri on his side, multiple times over.

Still one of my favorites on this show, even if he is a bit of a dope.

I'm pretty sure the use of the word "genius" is to make fun of how bad his plans seem to be. If someone told me we were going to try and kill the enemy capital ship under the guise of a white flag, I wouldn't participate.
