I sure hope so, because I didn't expect "Vidar Rising" to be only a 1-minute "buy this HG Gunpla" showcaseAnd with the next episode's title, it appears we are about to get some rather serious war developments. SNT1 will doubtless like that, and won't be the only one.
-Is this an episode where literally every named character still alive (sans Takaki and sister) had a spoken line? To me, a dubious distinction. I really don't give two ZOINKS about "Oh, they're training again!", "Oh, they're tuning things again!", "Oh, they're in the break room again while Atra cooks, again!" Before we got into the actual juicy development (was it Vidar or the Teiwaz scene?) I counted the first 7 or 8 minutes of this show as mostly useless.
+My boy Hush though, he's getting better. Even if he's bootlicking Mika a bit too hard there. Now that's one training scene I'd like to see, in a weird master and apprentice scenario.
+Finally some Teiwaz development. I'd like to see Tekkadan really run into some trouble and see how Naze handles this.
+Vidar's debut was decent, I guess. Notice it has the Graze Ein theme (or similar to it). I feel Ein is still somewhere.
+Julietta needs to die in a spectacularly epic fail way, she reminds me of Hiling Care a tiny bit.
+Chad, I know that feel bro. Did not see that coming.
-McGillis/Almiria. *shudder* That was creepy.
+ McGillis : Agnika = Zaheer : Guru Laghima (for those who watched Legend ok Korra), this guy will end up piloting Bael, IMO. If he's the final big bad then he might even get delusional and proclaim he's the second coming of Agnika. At this point though, I believe him when he says he wants to reform Gjallahorn, and not just some facade for something else.
