Warning. I don't cover spoiler. Go watch it first.
Another high tension episode despite nothing can be count as real battle.
It's possibly because the protest in this episode is really close to what happened in Thailand just few years ago, so I feel more connect than usual. But unlike in real life, at least I clearly know which side is victim here...and fully aware how people in-universe won't. That's refreshing...I guess.
So Navona doesn't really plan to use force and just want those weapons to make the protest look more serious. And at same time he's aware that bring in combat MW into protest might provoke Gjallarhorn to attack them first which will cause riot to escalate. Make sense? Well, I saw it happened in real life. At least , it seem that Navona doesn't want the latter to occur but really can't turn back now.
Too bad, he fail to realize that Gjallarhorn can turn the situation upside down with simple trick.
I wonder if we'll get info on the protester's MW? Since Gjallarhorn's NK-17 is new model and Tekkadan's TK-53 is outdated one, I guess this one is the standard commercial model.
Now it's pretty clear that despite her fame and role, Kudelia isn't well known as a person (at least outside of Mars). Totally clueless, she end up play right into BOTH Gjallarhorn's and Nobliss' hand. I guess that girl push her to ground just in time and since they're far away from main group, I'm willing to accept the plot armor for once. But seriously, fact that her lack of judgement cause this much damage does make her less likable somewhat. On the bright side, it look like this will bring big leap to her character.
Aww...Mika. Despite has his usual emosionless expression, his scene with Atra here is incredible lovely. He end up carries Kudelia much like how he carried Atra the last episode, but the mood is much darker here.
Damn, look like we were a little too fast to trust McMurdo. And to tell the truth, I've no idea what to expect from him now. He seem to think Kudelia is better live on, but fact that he's aware of Nobliss' plan and went with it make him much more of a wild card now. And this manage to cast shadow back over Teiwaz's arc, make me wonder what he actually plan for Tekkadan...and how much Naze know about it.
Next episode, finally big MS battle! I actually smile when Ein descript Gaelio's orderly lifestyle and call him innocent. Look like they get along fine.
