That's a lot of bits/funnels. So is this going to be an upgrade to the AGE-3 or another unit all together?
I feel like the 3rd generation of Age is finally stepping up to the plate. After watching this episode you get an idea of where things are going especially since we've seen screen shots of the new AGE Gundam thats going to come out soon. It also makes sense as to why they are rolling out the new wears for the AGE-3 so fast.
As for the episode, they take the majority of the first half showing how the entire Diva crew is lamenting on finding out about the Super Pirate Pilot, especially Kio and Flit. Again, as much as we've seen Flit soften from the rock he was at the 2nd Generation it still comes back.
The episode also reveals the "curse" Ash/Asemu was talking about the last episode. It feels like a Turn-A situation where an old civilization's lost technology. Now it's a race to see which one makes use of that treasure or if it gets destroyed, obviously it will be the former. Char's suit also gets an upgrade with the Vegans conveniently knowing some of that lost technology and introducing AGE's bit/funnel/dragoon, which to me are not that impressive because they are balls of light that move around. Considering they hit the AGE-3 in the back and didn't do much it feels like its just a distraction. How much practicality would it really have either if the opponent is a Newty.. I mean an X-Rounder?
Towards the end the action picks up with the Vegans attacking the Diva, again. The AGE-3 Orbital makes its day appearance and ends the episode in an actual cliff hanger. Is this the first actual real cliff hanger in the series? I don't remember but its good when used sparingly. Looking forward to the next episode!

I usually don't like red mobile suits, but the color combination for this is just wonderful! If they made this even in 1/144 HG I would get it!
By the end we have the Bisidians, Vegans, and the Diva crew all gunning for the Vegans because of a clever strategy from Flit. Asemu also ends up saving his son and leaving him a present in the end. I won't even get into the father/son issues that being the father was thought to be MIA for years. But, Kio could've just separated the Gundam into the core fighter and the G-Cepter. I don't understand why he didn't do that, or is he not able to because they singled out the cockpits and it can't separate anymore? Asemu keeps on saying he's a super pilot. If he was he shouldn't have that big scar on his face and end this war! Flit also lets the cat out of the bag and tells Kio who was actually piloting that AGE-2 Variant. I look forward to more clashes between father and son. I can picture the end already, all three generations teaming up for the big finale. Unless someone dies of course.
Next episode, we're already seeing the Orbital. I guess its only fitting because they're in space now. It also feels like they're doing this to make up for the one wear we get in the 2nd generation and the fact that there are more Gundams coming outside of the AGE-3 Normal, Fortress, and Orbital. Can't wait to see the Orbital in action!
