It would be interesting to see a Stanford Torus colony rather than the usual O'Neill Island-3 cylinder.Kuruni wrote:For real? I wonder if they decide to add a twist by make it AC colony instead of UC one...
Anyway, as for the episode...Fabulous Fareed doesn't seem like a bad guy per se, despite being one of the antagonists. That's something I love about this franchise, by the way. In most cases, you get characters on both sides of whatever the main conflict is who, quite apart from their status as antagonists, are perfectly decent folks - Ramba Ral, of course, being the prime example. It might be a bit too early to judge, but Fareed seems to be one of those.
Then there's Atra, who's still just plain adorable. Even though she hasn't done much so far, I find myself thinking I'd rather see more of her and less of Kudelia, but maybe that's just me. Kudelia herself remains an interesting character IMO though, which is more than can be said for some previous iterations of the same archetype within the franchise.
And I, like Ryujin, found interesting the amount of effort that the show is putting into world-building and setting, which in my experience a lot of the times is stuff that gets glossed over, if it gets mentioned at all. Fact is, CGS/Tekkadan is not a massive military a la EFF/Zeon/etc..., but a relatively small PMC from what we've seen. And there are specific concerns that go with that, which the past couple of episodes have put a lot of time into highlighting. For my part, I actually think is a good thing.
A little bit miffed at how quickly the story's moving on from Mars, but I suppose it can't be helped. As long as the quality remains consistent though, I'm not going to have any complaints.
