I don't recall a Digg Mack... there were the Dogg and Zigg Macks, and Ganga and Zanza Lubus. :mrgreen:

My Indonesian tongue can pronounce them easy enough. Well, our tongues are said to be the most flexible in adapting languages, many have said.

ANYWAY,

So the story will be very linear and everyone is moving toward the same spot, i.e following Bellri? To space, to an Island, to space again, to Sankt Porto, to Towasanga, and then to Venus Glob?

So im happy Klim said aloud that Aida is not a good pilot, it would have annoyed the hell out of me if they never acknowledge it.

They've acknowledged it all series. They just haven't had the daring to say it out loud!

"If you don't watch, you'll never understand anything!"

I am watching and I still don't understand anything! :lol:

So Bellri said it's impossible to dock at Sankt Porto, but Klim somehow managed to do it. Why did they have trouble going up if the Amerians occupied the tower? The Megafauna is a part of Ameria, right? What was the point of tying up the G-Self? Why bring Raraiya and Noredo along? Well, I guess that last one is par for the course by now.

Might be a translation issue? Or he meant that they wouldn't be allowed to Dock? After all Klim Nick wanted to pull the ruse of an emergency? OR, since we see the ships not really docked there, they didn't really dock. The ships just parked there and Klim Nick entered through space.

The situation here is pretty much simple,

1) What Bellri said being impossible to dock at Sankt Porto is true because according to the rules as listed on the Capital Tower Space Charter, spaceships or even Mobile Suits aren't allowed to approach Sankt Porto's orbit, Or else they will be 'Cursed'. Even the crews of the Salamandora are against it.

How did the Amerian's Gavial Warship managed to infiltrate Sankt Porto?? Its pretty simple.

1) According to the Capital Tower Space Charter, there is a regulations states that 'Aid must be rendered to a disabled Beagle', Klim knowingly states that those Capital Guards naturally don't define what a Beagle is therefore it gave a chance for the Amerian's Gavial Warship crew to put on an act to trick the escorts from Sankt Porto so that they could infiltrate.

2)Mind you that there is no military guards or any officials stationed at Sankt Porto, because that place is considered a free zone. Only the last Nut #144 which is a Nut below Sankt Porto still has Capital Guard's supervision.

3) It is due to Gavial's success in infiltrating Sankt Porto, Klim have no problems reaching Sankt Porto immediately. But this act committed by Gavial and Salamandora of course violates the regulations of the Charter.

Finally, didn't u notice a warning shot fired by the threats from the moon??? They just sank a Gavial Warship which wasn't suppose to dock at Sankt Porto in the first place. The curse mentioned is actually REAL!!!

I'm having a little problem though- so Luin recognized Bellri but wasn't surprised or anything? He didn't even make an note of it except after he got back in.
I don't think the mask is some kind of mind altering device. That's an (I would argue cheap) element of mask tropes that Tomino never uses. The mask has always been a metaphor in Tomino's story, and it's not implausible that Luin is just expressing a very different side of himself with the mask on. Plus, it makes far more sense if the nice Luin we saw at the start of the series really was the actual "mask" that Luin wore in life.

Luin probably put two and two together really early on. They know Bellri is with the Megafauna, and that he can pilot the Gundam. Creepy Colonel probably knows what's going on with Bellri, his mom, and the Megafauna as well, and Bellri came back to Capital with his mom and the Megafauna to try to negotiate something. That information probably wasn't missed by Luin either. Plus he's fought with the G-Self several times now, and he probably trained with Bellri. He has all the information he would need. I think the fact that he doesn't care that it's Bellri speaks volumes about his character and ambitions, and I think the little cheap shot he drops about Bellri in this episode raises the strong possibility that he never actually liked him in the first place.
Please fix the spoiler tag, thank you.

He pretty clearly recognized Kerbes too. Does he just not care about anyone if it means achieving his ambitions?
To put it simple, he is basically fighting for the sake of Kuntalas.

So is that disruptive hologram/light shadow or whatever a part of the G-Self or is that another feature of the space backpack? I had thought that was the main gimmick of that big unyielding backpack he used while his mom was coming from space.
According to the Gundam Ace Magazine, the G-Self's armor is made of Photon Frame instead of the Gundarium Alloy from UC. The G-Self is powered with multiple photon batteries and its capable of releasing excess photon energy. So the 'Excess Photon Energy' here could explain the trick.

I am pretty sure he will show up again as the aggressive soldier with comic relief probably as a team of three as well.

The Wuxia also seem to lack the flight capabilities of the Catsith's wings, but maybe it was also meant for space combat hence the giant Rick Dias binders that is enough to perform super jumps.

These super jumps may not be supported by minovsky flight, but I am not sure whether even 2nd era UC MS from F91 could do such jumps under earth's gravity. The ones in Victory might be able to as well even when they turn off minovsky flight since it doesn't provide propulsion.

I have a feeling that since the Wuxia is so character oriented, certainly the Catsith won't show up anymore, but will the Wuxia reflect the personal of the entire Captain Army or just Becker's lot? The Catsith was shown as an authoritative and order keeping protector of the Captain Tower, and now the role of the Capital Army has supposedly changed to that of an aggressor.

Probably Wuxia will become the Ahead of G-Reco, and then it will be replaced by something more traditional.
Wuxia being capable of Hovering on the ground is definitely interesting. Even the jump and German Suplex is pretty amazing too.

They might settle down at Towasanga to settle some political issues and to prepare themselves for another long trip head to Venus, because heading to Venus will probably take some time. Furthermore, there is no telling that there might be another great military force stationing at Venus since photon batteries are developed there. According to Tomino in an interview states that those Photon batteries will ship from Venus Globe to the moon for approximately once a year, you can start imagining how long it is to reach there.

True, which gives me hope it will return. Prototype mobile armors usually translate to bigger, better ones.
