The whole point of giving the mechs wheels on their soles was so the action could be much more dynamic than in Gundam. I already mentioned that she was designed to be a Perfect Soldier, so there is that. The mission disk is used to store information relating to maneuvers that the pilot anticipates will be necessary, such as using the evaluation of an opponent's tactics to prepare against him. It has thicker armor and can carry more missiles. Aboard the escape pod, Chirico tries to talk to Zaki about ignoring any mental programming to kill him.
Now he's on the run. Pailsen suddenly suffers a mental breakdown, prompting Wockam to assume custody of him. Pailsen is arrested based on the information Virgil Carson was able to send to the Gilgamesh military intelligence service during the events of Roots of Ambition. These two arcs are like the place settings for the final two because now that all the characters are in place, the show feels like it wants to do something with them. Chirico is betrayed and left behind to die, but he survives, is arrested by the Gilgamesh military as a traitor, and tortured for information on their homeworld. I feel like the anime only covered a fraction of what this universe has to offer because it only covers some individual planets. After the pod crashes on the surface, Chirico buries Zaki and walks away.
It is revealed that he killed comrades as they tried to escape the battlefield. For the most part it sticks to the Universal Century shows, with a few alternate universe tunes thrown in. Everything is so spot on. When Wapp meets the team, he sets Berkhoff aside and blackmails him with information about his demotion from first lieutenant to find Yugunt and Fuller's killer. As the cold downburst falls and the Balarant forces are caked in , the team huddles together to keep warm.
The team escapes the collapsing base, but Chirico wonders why they were not reprimanded for the debacle. Seeing that Galeade no longer has any value in the war effort, Wockam's aide, Cotta Ruske, orders Yugunt to have all Gilgamesh military forces evacuate the planet immediately. The fact that there's never been a remaster or blu-ray of Mellowlink or Shining Heresy is because the original masters were destroyed in a fire. There's a few extra songs to round it out basically get it over 30 minutes from other series I enjoyed. Combine that mission with the explosive fuel mixture and thin metal of their powersuits, and their chances of survival are decreased rather than enhanced, and only a handful will live to fight again.
Liked by Glad you got round to this one Scott. Most notably, there are the Turbo Custom, Red Shoulder and Burglary Dog derivatives of the regular Scopedog made and used by Chirico. He escapes, and sets out to find the truth behind that day and that woman. Also, I like how the mechs are used as well. The arctic camouflage units also have special attachments. The is practically complete now. Balarant fighters carpet-bombing the gorge add to the chaos, with at least 1,500 men dead or missing in action.
But of that elite group of survivors, a few will become legends. The effective use of different targets in different directions variant is restricted to the Super Soldiers. Seeing that the Berkhoff team survived Galeade, Wockam brings them to Kuzsuk for three days' vacation leave and apologizes to Pailsen for putting him through so much pain, returning his disk at the same time. Although he has some pretty cunning tactics when he can, many times he survives his fights simply because fortune favors him. He also meets Fyana, the perfect soldier he fell in love with, in action on the opposite side in this arc and also finding out that they do have some feelings towards each other. Tremors are detected all over Monad, and Chirico learns that all Balarant forces have been ordered to leave the planet. Now, an uneasy truce has settled across the Astragius Galaxy.
Wapp implies that the accident may have been engineered by bitter survivors of the Manid Gorge disaster. Defense Secretary Noidod, who is connected to the meeting via video-conference, dies when his helicopter crashes on the way, prompting suspicions about Wockam being the instigator. The mission goal was never explained to Chirico, because he was an outsider. The team are later harassed by masked men all over the base. While most of his mechs are scope dogs and other variants, the rigidity and disposability of each Armored Trooper unit on the field of battle is incredibly consistent throughout the show. Now, an uneasy truce has settled across the Astragius Galaxy.
After the operation was over, Chirico escaped this ship, was captured by the Gilgamesh forces because the captain thought he knew something, and then Chirico escaped that ship too to only end up in a city on a planet in the middle of nowhere. Balarant Fattys continue to engage them, with Godan's Scopedog wrecked from two bazooka hits. Oh man, I need to find some Votoms model kits. Early on Coconna had to somehow force Gotho and Vanilla to come along and help rather than leave Chirico to die. I love how the Armored Troopers as used in this show and their designs. He kills Wockam in the final episode.
