As far as Setsuna cutting down those two Amphs near the end of the battle, you have to remember that he let the Tierens run away. It's not so much that he had to take down both sides, but attack anyone that would continue fighting. After all, The meisters are around to end war and not favor anyone side.
After seeing that shot of the High Mobility Tieren, we can only assume that Graham didn't do to well if Setsuna is around and kicking for another fight in the same episode. I don't expect Graham to go down Patrick style, but let's face it, there's no way he's going to win. After all, it's only his first fight with Exia and we know which is the superior suit.
Ascension wrote:It would, however, be nice to see some upgrades for the three superpowers sometime soon, given how easily their current machines are being taken apart. Flashy, well-animated fight scenes or no, it's going to get old fast if no one ever manages to even pose a legitimate threat to the Meisters.
Now, although I do want to see some good fights down the road, I don't mind the Gundams being godly. You see, my problem with other series had been not how overpowered the Gundams were, but how lazy the animators were. Gundam 00 has had nothing but amazing set pieces so far and I couldn't be happier.
Like was stated before, if I had anyone complaint, it would be the lack of character interaction, but seeing as ep. 1 and 2 have been pretty much exciting introduction episodes, I don't have a problem with that.
PS - I too want more Sumeragi and China girl!
