He has shook his fist a lot about dem orphans
I think he was meant to be a rival character but they have completely failed at that with both him and char. The most obvious way you can tell this is the lack of gay fan art with them and mika
>he has yet to do anything
>implying Ein is the only one
it means lots of people are buying the graze. They wouldn't make any kits at all if they wanted to save money. Fuck the Gusion Rebake is an entirely new mold even if there is shared part CAD data from the Barbatos frame parts

2 Impulses, 6 Zakus, 3 Goufs,2 Gaias, 2 Murasames, 2 Akatuskis, plus variants of the Ginn and Bugue from the original SEED line. Then you have how close the Strike Freedom and Infinite Justice are to the originals, along with the Akatsuki being a gold-plated Strike.
Is it a wonder a lot of the Destiny line sat on the shelves?
I'm more surprised HG Blast Impulse wasn't made.
Or Windam or Dagger L.
Actuallly come to think of it, 105 Dagger and Slaughter Dagger are the only EA grunts that got HG, right? Even then they weren't from the main series.
One of the new MS does something else other than charging forward and looking pretty.
She is usually depicted as a pale skinned, fair haired Goddess.
Her symbols include the Silver wheel, weaving implements the full moon and the Corona Borealis.
Sacred Bird: The Goddess shape-shifted into a large wise owl which enabled her to see into the dark depths of the human soul.
Sacred Plant: Ivy.
Spiders are also associated with this Goddess as she is seen as a weaver of fate.
Colours: Silver and white.
So is Tamaki going to do something else or did his "time" pass with his almost death?
>I'm more surprised HG Blast Impulse wasn't made.
Consider how it was only used for a grand total of three (?) times it is not surprising, and we have the MG Force and Sword Impulse but no MG Blast Impulse either
>Wants a HG Windam
Do you really want it to spontaneously falls apart and explode when it is near any Gunpla?
Mika's gonna give her the D right?
yeah I'm glad he survived his death flags and i hope he lives to the end. I really want him to get his sister into school.
I just want him to score. He's a qt. He deserves some pussy.
>she was a deconstruction of the peace princess trope by being uesless
She's already done the okay war can happen bit.
What's going to happen is she gets up on stage and says war in bad and these orphans have shown me it is sad, then everyone claps like this is a huge revelation. Mika's shaky hand also means he will figure out a killing is bad, bonus points if he spares someone's life because of it
>I saw one tumblr post about how she was a deconstruction of the peace princess trope by being uesless
>expecting total drama trainwreck like codegeass and cuhrazy stuff but nothing happened again
jesus christ i want more gundam seed instead
I really want to see that pick happen to Mika, the guy has just had zero struggle. Even in Gundam when the MC has been more competent they are always getting shat on by people around them, sometimes just cause those people are being super unfair. Mika just has everything fall into his lap. He gets a gundam he is amazing with day 1, everyone likes him even if he is a dick, two girls after him, he is super special in having 3 bumps and only once has he had a serious problem in battle with the mafia. His flaw is meant to be his weird attitude/personality but this has never caused any problems for him, characters don't even react to it and it means he is good at his job. Plus it isn't even like his weirdness means he has no emotions, he does and will express caring or want. Without any big problems Mika never has to struggle or grow. The only thing that sort of starts him on the path is the most generic "you Lik killing don't you" and we haven't even touched on it for like 3 episodes
Other Gundam MCs can be more annoying, but Mika is the least interesting
The brown hair one is probably going to die and then the blonde one will cry and it will be the motion emotional well written death ever while saying something about families and brothers "9/19 perfect" -ANN
Remember when we thought orga was going to turn bad or die halfway through forcing tekkadan into a difficult situation that would help them better themselves in the long run?
Remember when we thought that Mika would end up at odds with orga which would push him to become more independent and start to think for himself?
Remember when we thought they'd add waist armour to the barbatos?
Remember when we were excited about seeing mobile suit designs that weren't grazes?
Remember when we were excited about the 72 gundam frames?
Remember when we were excited about learning more about the calamity war?
Im sorry that I may sound like a faggot but its kinda unfair when G-Reco were condemn and hated on youtube being the most boring and confusing gundam ever when they have multiple faction but its "Gundam" when IBO did it.
I think the bigger mistake is giving names and numbers a make you wonder what happened .When it is just there was a war and we had suits is has the similar effect but feels like less of a set up to talk about that.
Don't you mean this?
It looks cool, but it already got more variations before it even did anything cool.
It's the Ahead of IBO.
we got no MSV either
just look at how seed promote their shits. MSV, Astray, Astray X. this is how you sell toys
>but it already got more variations before it even did anything cool.
This. The Zaku stand in is born to job but it usually got a few hits in (even if they prove ineffective) and then gets wrecked a lot.
Grazes never got to do anything neat but we also don't get to see them get busted up in a cool way
>Remember when we were excited about the 72 gundam frames?
>They make Gundams to all 72 Ars Goetia demons
>This has only happened for 3 Gundams so far
> for others it's insanely slow.
I think that is cause 90% isn't coming, at least not in a satisfactory manner
IBO just really isn't good at the middle part though, it fails to develop ideas
I think it was meant to be he could link up with the computer, but yeah nothing comes of it when it could be really cool
Mika could accidentally drag up stuff like video feed of the calamity war, stuff about other gundams or maybe make him experience trauma from other pilots maybe even gaining some of their personality and memories. But the most that has happened since is sometimes the system hurts them cause spines I guess
>drag up stuff like video feed of the calamity war, stuff about other gundams or maybe make him experience trauma from other pilots
hah as if they can come up with such interesting ideas
But would you watch that?
An entire series about Gundams wrecking Gundams, mankind fucking up and dooming a good number of generations, and the formation of seven star family shit?
anything other than this stagnant mess
come one it's gonna be like G Gundam but with jousting gundams instead
That's what they are doing right now as well. Don't you know anon that themes are meant to be told to us not weaved into a narrative
IBO is so much more dark and more mature than other gundams, that's why the grunt action is so good. I know this cause the series told me how gritty it was
Sounds allot more interesting than the shit we're getting, but hell the shit we're getting sounded more interesting than it ended up being, so they'd likely find a way to fuck up that idea as well.
There's nothing especially uninteresting about the plot of IBO, not taking into consideration the writing and the untapped potential.
I say this because what you have there is just an idea for a story. It could be good, it could be bad, it could be nothing at all. IBO had all the chances any story could possibly have to be good, but the writers decided to jerk off and use the scripts to clean up and then bashed on the keyboard for an hour and went "Eh, good enough" every week.
So yeah, going off of your post right there, yeah, I would watch it. I'd at least give it a shot.
Mika has a base line personality. Like he cares for people but all that means is he follows where the story tells him to help and is sometimes sort of nice. he's like all the ingredients for a character but no one has really put it together
Ah yeah that one
>I'll again turn off if you were kimaris haste exit
Here we go.
You know shit must have hit the fan when the person I know who said only positive things about IBO for 16 weeks was pissed off in his comments regarding the latest episode.
It's not hard to imagine how japanese viewers are reacting after that.
Next episode is very crucial one.It will either make it or break it if they don't deliver on Kimaris battle.
so what happened to all the rabid brewers pirate kids that tekkadan took in some episodes ago? i'd almost forgotten they'd existed.
we didnt even see them getting their hot meals or whatever orga promised them
I can't believe they let piggy live. He's still got one ship and will probably just restart his his kiddy stealing empire
Hitler, maruba, piggy, they all could potentially come back and bite tekkadan in the ass
> Bandai released Remastered versions of the SEED line to tie into the HD Remastered project.
> Doesn't release one kit for Destiny.
Sure, it was only the 1/100s anon. I'm sure that's why Bandai decided to kill the Cosmic era while SEED's producer said the decision to do so was to attract a new audience. It was te 1/100s, I swear.
Is that seriously the best you can come up with? Yeah they just kept the line going two years after the series ended until literally days before 00 aired then kept doing more CE indefinitely because it did so fucking terribly.
Why does this cool-looking thing have to be the only MS to not get a model?
Is it the same shoulder cannon we saw earlier or is it a new design?
>Remember when we thought they'd add waist armour to the barbatos?
The fights were good
Kimaris and Ryuseigo were the real stars.
How bad is it going to get for the gang when Rugal finally catches up with his daughter?
>The fights were good
Any YEEEEEAAAAART moment?
By seeing it in almost every important battle from Build Fighters and by realizing Obari has been recycling the same fights and pans for some years now.
It is cool, but it is getting boring and Obari is not doing anything new lately.
Episode 7 and 2 weren't all that bad, honestly. Barbatos' use of the spear/mace thing was pretty good in 2, but not great, and I loved the part where McGillis noticed that Mika couldn't "feel" his backpack with AV. Really the whole series still felt like it had potential. Momentum. Mika was shown to be cold-blooded as hell but sniffed the bracelet and protected it from "seeing" him kill. He had clear sociopathic tendencies. Orga was really, really concerned about how to lead everyone, especially Mika. McGillis and Eins both had a bone to pick with them. Kudelia wanted to become useful and still had time to act on that. Barbatos was going to be a horrific Frankengundam that had to destroy to survive. Grazes were still moderate in number.
>I loved the part where McGillis noticed that Mika couldn't "feel" his backpack with AV
You mean that bit that never factored into the fight cause Mika adapted to it after like one shot that did nothing? It was retarded anyway cause he could feel his back and I'm sure he knows to protect that. Like it protruded to the sides then sure but it fits neatly right on his back
Yeah, I was going to add that but I was changing around the wording of the post a ton and forgot. I liked the idea (and the backpack does stick out enough so that you wouldn't really think to protect that far behind out, it isn't flush) but yes, the shot did nothing and he adapted instantly. Then we're told that Mika was supposedly cornered? I liked the ideas, that's all. The execution was starting to show its true colors.
IBO has a lot of good ideas. One I really find has a lot of potential is the idea that all the MS frames are relics and what the present people have been doing is just bolting on their own stuff onto them. I wish they furthered that concept more, establishing a few key MS frames but then having wildly different armor designs otherwise. The Gundam MSes were the best example, with the Grazes sadly not being too different from each other.
It would also be an excellent idea to make money. Imagine if we got a full inner frame for the Hyakruen, with Amida's custom getting a different (but stylistically similar) armor design from Azee's (they even have Amida's be a "higher-perfomance" frame in the fluff, so why not extend that to their armor?). That would justify having a separate kit for Amida's Hyakuren, since the current one is just a color palette change with some additional accessories. Hell, you could extend it to the Hyakuri, with it having the same frame but a more streamlined design and the giant jet backpack. I'd imagine there'd be more Hyakuren and Hyakuri sales if this was the case.
I also wish the mobile workers got more of the spotlight. Yeah this is Gundam, so we have to have the giant mechs duking it out. But with how much attention the MWs got in the beginning, you'd think they'd factor in a lot more, with emphasis on combined arms and such. Also selling those little things in packs instead of solo for each accessory kit would be neat.
Yet strangely lacking more discussion (or shitposting for that matter)
Then again subbed version isn't out yet, so we'll see.
so is this how ippei gyoubu feels about IBO?
Fuck, I just realized.
Dammit Ippei, I take it you liked "ROCK ON" too?
>staging a fake explosion to ignite the revolt
>giving people rigged MS to wipe them out
Is Ganjajob the most comically evil faction in Gundam?
>HURR DURR of course I can pilot the MS! I work every day!
>There is fuel bro
>but we never tested the weapons
And are dock-workers the most incompetent pilots ever?
Gundam isn't always very subtle but they really are just the worst. At least the Titans was full of people who vehemently believed they were doing the right thing and would even stay on an exploding ship to do so. These pricks are just evil and don't even really care
But they have to throw in Garma doing a frowny face about it so that it is okay to buy merch with his face on
Dock workers are incompetent as shit in real life, lets not kid ourselves.
And Zanscar is still the most cartoonishly evil org in gundam, With A-laws, Titans, and neo-zeon following behind them
i kind of want an anime in the style he uses for his regular illustration work
hes done some interesting stuff
the style feels very early 2000's though, dont know how well it would go over now
>Hey, did you notice people are dying?
>It is not like this is the 7th time someone said it in 10 minutes!
Come on, Okada, you can be more subtle than this.
Not even Stargazer/Destiny era EA or Vagans?
The former even deploy MS with built-in vulcans on feet to massacre infantries and civvies because they thought MS weapons are too overkill.
>People are dying over here
People were just shot by tanks and you were fine. For a few hours there was gun fighting and all that but now it is bad? Not forgetting you wilfully censored the media before?
Characters just become whatever they need to for a scene
guess the character designers only bothered with designing the gjallahorn uniforms
>Oh, hey, it is that girl again. That girl we know nothing about. But she is so interesting anyway!!!
Jesus, the whole place must be very tiny for them to meet again or Tekkadan boys are so stupid they left her near the battle.
The amount of coincidences in this anime is completely absurd. "WHAT ARE THE FUCKING ODDS?" should have been the tagline.
And I bet he will broadcast something about Kudelia, the Maiden of Hope, because otherwise the plot won't move and Kudelia will stay the same useless turd.
What a nice coincidence, she finds a reporter just when she wants to speak.
Holy shit, she is one lucky girl.
I felt him and Tamotsu Shinohara are wasted on IBO.
Should have let them go crazy on MS design.
Hell, while we're at it hire Kazuma Kaneko as well. He did Dis Astranagant and an Orbital Frame on ZOE2, right?
orga and mika feel like side characters
are we ever even going to see their flashback. I thought the show was going to be about their struggle to make their way in the world. But they've just become pawns again
Was it really necessary to break the fight with more boring and useless info-dumping?
Or at the very least stick to just 2 mechanical designers. One for calamity war era and one for the modern stuff. mixing 4 different designers distinct styles into single suits as they have been doing for stuff like the rebake doesnt really work.
>dat Kudelia's face
Reminds me of The Last Pure Human from Doctor Who.
Barbatos, Gusion, Gusion Rebake or Kimaris?
I say pic related.
>People of which I know nothing about because I was too busy shopping instead of meeting them
I see, the TV time she asked for must not come cheap.
Remember G-Reco's preview involving girl's scent?
Another check to the list Okada stole from G-Reco once she turned down the job.
You don't understand. It's so relieving that somebody put mecha back into IBO. And actually showed them doing THINGS. It was almost like I was watching a Gundam anime again.
The fight itself was alright (the reveal of 2 new mecha is great) but can we just face that TV anime has QUALITY moments? This ep looked leagues above some others imo.
>but can we just face that TV anime has QUALITY moments?
Given how much they hyped the fight and mecha involved I was something for something more than just an average fight.
Not to mention the last time mecha animators worked on something was a month ago. I think they took their sweet time.
It was actually not a bad episode. Not great, but not bad. The problem is that it took 17 episodes to get here. It wouldn't have been bad if the trip to Dort or whatever gave a better sense of time having been well spent too but they spent like 3 episodes on that Teiwaz shit and then seemingly just zoomed to the fork pig pirates arc.
How exactly did Kudelia message that old guy?
The episode was okay but because of the reasons you said people are much more likely to pick apart the lazy writing in some areas.
Plus the show is now suffering from trying to do arcs when characters were ignored or just didn't go anywhere for 17 episodes.
Yeah he was basically an orc so you would think Japs would have had fun with him and the Gusion pilot "interrogating" Kudelia/Fumitan/Atra/those two guy mechanic kids with their benises.
She messaged him using the news guy's special news comm relay, that's what Biscuit was whispering about. At least I guess that's how she did it.
But yeah I don't know why people think this episode was shit. It's not SHIT, it just feels like we should have been at this point in either episode 13-14 or that the first 10 or so episodes should have done more than have them fucking wandering Mars making pointless small talk.
It wasn't even worldbuilding while wandering around and shit. It was pointless.
Sorry, but it would've been better if she kept the bloodstained getup. Seriously, that comes with plus-points for the normies she wants to attract to her rebellion.
>She messaged him using the news guy's special news comm relay, that's what Biscuit was whispering about
Wouldn't that be monitored though? Cause she seemed to call him to pull some strings to let her go live (how that works is unclear but whatever), but before that the chat would be monitor by whatever company the gjallarhorn mentioned weren't doing their job.
Well Biscuit said that press had a "separate" channel so I thought that was what she used to message the guy, like it's for press to communicate with each other different from civilian or military lines. So it would be free of monitoring and Gjallarhorn just controls the video from studio, which is why strings had to be pulled.
Well, who knows, but that's my theory.
But what gjallarhorn mentioned is a body that specifically monitors the press. If they didn't check the messaging all sorts of shit like some revolutionary leader contacting someone who can help get her speech out could happen
Maybe it's because of le Okada meme but the script focuses too much on things that no one gives a shit about and not on things that are actually important. That's why it's so slow. Remember that whole episode when they were on Biscuit's grandma's farm with his two moeshit sisters and they spent an entire episode there with Kudelia spazzing out and Char offering chocolate to little girls? Why was that a whole episode? And why did it take 13 episodes for anyone in the Tekkadan to die and then they spend 2 episodes angsting about it to draw it out and lead to that fireworks moment? Shit getting real and people dying so they have to bring themselves back to reality should have happened earlier and that pathos should have been incorporated throughout more episodes instead of just being dealt with in a 2 episode arc.
Was it Okada?
They might have meant monitoring what the press airs on TV, not tapping their comms. But then it makes no sense why Gjallarhorn taps civilian comms but leaves the press comms untouched. Let's just say it's sloppy writing.
They are useful for push back but at the same time never seen to do any noticeable damage. I'm just glad they were sort of useful though, the fight scene still had issues but it was ten times more competent than what we got up till now
Also why was the shuriken able to scratch Brabtos but bullets not?
>Was it Okada?
The producer and Nagai had an idea for IBO being about kids wanting to survive, no higher ideals about changing the world or any other nonsense.
They decide the whole show is about them finding a way to earth. Nagai hires Okada as head scriptwriter, she concocts a series plan and splits the episodes among herself and the other writers.
Whose to blame in this scenario? Producer/director mainly and Okada second.
>no higher ideals about changing the world
B-but they're escorting a peace princess so she can be the light of hope for spacenoids everywhere. They completely abandoned that part of the premise.
The Gjallarhorn captain specifically asks about this, and then one of his guys says that the message should have been censored but someone had to have pulled strings. Then it cuts to Nobliss Gordon, who we know has enough pull with Gjallarhorn to set up a massive sting operation just to get Kudelia tragically killed.
I think >>13821826 makes good points but to counter the problems with IBO come down mainly to the writing
Okada gave a bad bare bones plan that has not let the writers do a lot. I'm sure all those involved can develop a character but they have just not been able to do much with any of them. This could be put down to how long events are taking, lack of freedom with characters, bad communication or general lack of interest in project
>Biscuit Piloting Gusion Rebake
Only if Keep on Keeping on plays
This. Imagine how much more impact it would make if she showed up in her bloodstained dress with the Tekkadan combat jacket still draped over her shoulders, probably covered in smoke and dust from the warzone she just ran through. She would look like one of the people, someone who's just been in the shit and knows their pain. If she gets herself all cleaned up first she looks like another noble.
Wasn't this dumbass supposed to save Kudelia from the spy? What the hell is he doing now? Why did he let Kudelia run in the middle of the revolt without doing shit to stop her? She was running after the same person that was supposed to kill her for fuck sake.
>This is our great leader Kudelia. She never really did anything and just sort of told us to keep doing stuff even though it was getting us killed. Thinking about it only one of us even saw her before the massacre
>But her servant was hot
Its an alright action episode, did that one mecha cliche I absolutely hate though. Kudelia finally doing what a charismatic leader does and give speeches, after 17 episodes decides to actually stop running instead of just saying it like previous episodes. I'm still disappointed the white haired woman hasn't shown up yet.
So now that we've got the obligatory action out of the way, how long until the next bit of proper MS action? Episode 20? 21? I wager we'll get a bit of action around then, then episode 22 - 23 will be the Tekkadan crew + Kudelia thinking and expositing why they're fighting and shit, maybe flashbacks. Then I can see episode 24 being mostly the final conflict, and episode 25 being a rushed as fucked stale anti-climactic Aldnoah.Zero S2 ending.
Still hate the colors, but I'll be damned if this isn't a cool design & gimmick.
>That look on the mechanic & fuccboi's faces when Norba announces its name.
It was beautiful.
I can't stand Okada and I want her to stop ruining things, but this is clearly not something she was allowed freedom with. The producer obviously didn't gave a shit about her, it was Nagai that invited her after the project was rebooted.
>Merribit will give her pointers first.
Though seriously, she's not at that level yet. When she backstabs everyone through wit, that's when we know the transformation is complete.
did you actually watch the episode? Kudelia has pretty much decided "If you're going to use me as someone who will spark revolution, let me do it on my own terms"
Kimaris did job. Gaelio's hit and run tactic was overcome by Mikazuki who grabbed his Gundam to get close to him.
As soon as Barbatos gets additional armor, the Kimaris is finished.
Gusion Rebake was the star this week.
Not sure, also I’m not entirely sure how to interpret Orga opinion in all this thing, he doesn’t seem as happy as everyone else
Like when she organised a rally? Or like when she agreed to go to earth? Or when she agreed to hold the burden of war?
I guess all those moments were controlled by that fat guy as well, in secret
Either Chocolate man or Arabu Leader may arrange something in next episode which will stop Gayhorn to attack them.
Man, this episode was so code geass tier- coincidence after coincidence.
So typical peace princess - getting motivated finally after not learning same lesson several time.
This shit is going for a season 2. Too little space for a cop out.
His priority is securing Tekkadan's future by getting to Earth with Kudelia. Getting heat from Gjallarhorn runs counter to that, remember that he deliberately kept his guys away from the first firefight between the workers and Gjallarhorn even though they were the most competent fighters in the whole warehouse. Kudelia going loud with her message and getting Tekkadan in a fight with Arianrhod wasn't in the plan. I don't think he'll actually move against her, though.
We know that, but Orga doesn't. The whole point of joining Teiwaz in the first place was using them as cover to bypass Gjallarhorn blockades. He had no way of knowing that Gali Gali would be so personally invested in their capture.
>We know that, but Orga doesn't
Yes he does. Them being a target has been discussed since episode 2. They new going to the earth meant their numbers would be greater. No secret way to get around was mentioned at earth, only on route and Orga happily made themselves more noticeable by stopping to deliver cargo
Let’s simply call it Gusion and ignore the Rebake, in the end the name is a silly thing, as the Gundam is the skeleton, no matter what they put over it, Gusion is simply Gusion
how the fuck are they going to stop that fleet and escape
>oi K.A.B is on t.v and saying we're bad guys!
>we kinda are
>do we stop her? save our name? we out number her and she right there
>eehhh meh i dont really care
Why does Japan think that dumb nickleback facial hair makes characters look cool? I literally started laughing out loud when this guy said he had a harem.
Kudelia's big plan was to give a private web cam session to convince the fat man?
So as someone who stopped giving a shit ages ago, did the kimaris do col enough shit to at least watch for it? I love the design but did it bitch out, or ere the fights shit like usual or what?
It was to add a slightly lewd scene to get some lowest common denominator appeal
It was alright. It wasn't all QUALITY like most IBO but all he did was charge up and down. Better than pepe at least. The rest of the episode is a lot of dumb nothing and maybe Kudelia finally manning up, but the series seems to thing that means looking stern a lot
It's honestly the best episode in a while, but much of the stuff they try to push doesn't feel earned because of the last few episodes
Also there is a dumb moment where the Rebake throws his axe but Ein just deflects with his arm or something and is mostly fine, like he loses a bit of armour at most. Damage sometimes seems random in this show
>Remember when we thought they'd add waist armour to the barbatos?
I don't think waist armor was invented in this universe.
It's especially weird after he was all against being shits to people, or at least less positive about it
IBO isn't very good at details
It's perfectly in-character when you realize Gaylo hates the local authorities so to him that Graze pilot was just a faggot involved in a conspiracy to slaughter the defenseless. He also had a huge boner for killing Mika.
Except he got to know those random poor people and learned they're fundamentally decent people.
He met the local Gjallerhorn shitters and they proved themselves to be unapologetic massacring evidence-planting shitters.
>he got to know those random poor people
Um when? He never went down there.
And again, knowing the people he works with are bad doesn't mean equal okay with murdering. He didn't go around murdering them at mars for being corrupt. And when his whole point was these people are acting wrong then killing your own men does not help your standing or point
>Is Ganjajob the most comically evil faction in Gundam?
Not really what they did for the most part was entrapment. By the time of the explosion they had personnel killed by the protesters who had wanted the weapons.
Dock workers were retarded and chose to engage in arming themselves instead of peaceful protests.
No one actually hates this episode, it's just that the plot has only started moving NOW, 16-17 episodes in, so a lot of people have understandably lost all their goodwill towards it since it took so long dicking around.
It's like if some chick kept continually blueballing you or standing you up on dates. You would be much less receptive to her in the future because she fucked around with you too long and you lost your patience long ago.
>>Maybe the dock workers saw how well the peaceful protests were working in Mars and decided to get to the point.
Maybe they should have gone on strike? If conditions were had a much larger organized movement.
Civil disobedience would have been a lot better.
Elite forces were worthless
Mask is worthless
Kudelia peace princess speech
Armed uprisings are ok, because of class warfare
We at least got Kimaris
>We at least got Kimaris
But it has a space rat problem that requires purging.
