It’s a Gundam show because it has Newtypes… Figures.
I really hate the fact that Sei can’t do shit without Reiji. Well, I guess every mechanic would need a pilot. And as weird as it may look like, this story is focused on the dreams and hopes of a mechanic.
While this episode showed that Reiji is by no means invincible,to be able to hold his ground despite his shitty equipment is a feat in itself. Then again, “Crimson Comet” never did use his ranged armaments so we may call it even.
2 episodes and it’s decent so far. A good way to kill time off the mobile suit series though I do hope they manage to cook a real good one in the coming seasons. Having to watch Gundams played as a hobby is nice and all but mecha anime action is still what the mobile suit series is all about… And I do hope they manage to top it off against MJP.
