Gundam 00 (Episode 20)

As response the increased brutality of Celestial Being’s intervention to eradicate warfare, Union, AEU and HRL formed a military alliance to fight against the Gundams. My bet is they have found their new weapon. As a result of this, the United Nations Army begins to take shape.

The Union-HRL-AEU military alliance is formed.

Marina Ismail who is watching the news on television wondered if the alliance is what Celestial Being was intended to achieve in the first place though Shirin Bakhtiar sees the United Nation Army is just another Celestial Being entity. Apparently I shared the same thoughts with Marina but I believe there is still more to that than just unification. Somehow the alliance is what Celestial Being had expected as they have cleared it to the first phase of their ultimate plan. And no thanks to Team Trinity’s drastic measures, the plan is a reality. Tieria was troubled by the alliance because he is aware that the world’s military is basically crippled after the Trinitys’ relentless attacks on military strongholds around the globe. Because of this new turn of event, Sumeragi ordered the use of GN Arms while the Gundammeisters are called back to Ptolemaios. At a Union base in Illinois, Graham checked on Billy who was studying the blueprint of the new GN Drives they received. He explained that they received 10 out of 30 GN Drives they received from an anonymous from Celestial Being, which allows the military alliance to happen in the first place. Graham was placed as the captain for the Union side of the newly formed United Nations Army. Graham refused this for the sake of his promise to Howard Mason to fight the Gundams with his Flag. Meanwhile at the HRL base in Russia, the HRL army received their share of the GN Drives with Colonel Sergei taking charge. While in France where the AEU military base is, Kathy Mannequin contemplating whether to include Patrick into the new military team. Suddenly Patrick Colasour came to her door with a bouquet of flower as he invited to bring her out for dinner. Somehow she agreed to his invite.

Patrick’s tactical maneuver of courtship on Kathy.

At the Linear Train Corporation office, Ali Al-Saachez was having a meeting with Laguna Harvey to discuss about him joining the United Nations Army. He reasons himself that he wanted to fight before warfare would actually cease in the near future. In the end, his request was rejected. On his way out, he comes across Kinue who introduced herself as a JNN reporter. She later rode along with him in his car as he begins to share about the information on the new GN Drives. He then told her about one of the Gundam pilots being a Kurdish nationality whom he had supposed to get brainwashed as a guerilla by him. In that instance, Kinue knew that she is in grave danger with Ali. Moments later, Kinue was found in a pool of blood while Saji who had just returned home, brooding over what had happened Louise. Meanwhile Alejandro and Libbons Almach disembarked from a spaceport using a private spaceship. Alejandro has finally achieve what his family had wished for a long time, which is to intervene with the Celestial Being’s plan. This was made possible with Veda in his hand, thanks to Libbons who now works for him. Back to Earth at Team Trinity’s base in Africa, Liu-Mei and Hong Long arrived without the siblings noticing as she introduced herself as an agent for Celestial Being. She said they all come from the same organization (Celestial Being) and that she should be supporting them in their cause. She even disclaimed herself to be part of the Ptolemaios crew and is willing to do anything to keep hold of Aeolia Schenberg’s ideals. Johann accepts her support, very much to the surprise of Michael and Neena. After the meeting, she told Hong Long that she will do anything she can to change the world.

Liu-Mei decided to visit the monkeys in the African zoo.

Lockon, Setsuna and Tieria returned to Ptolemaios when they detected the Thrones being deployed. The target for Team Trinity this time is a HRL base in Canton (Guangzhou, China). As always, the whole battalion was badly assaulted by the Thrones but not for long. 10 GN-X units from the HRL team of the new United Nations Army arrived to settle the scores against Team Trinity. Taking the lead is Colonel Sergei in his new GN Drive-powered mobile suit. His experience is far superior for the siblings to handle. Even Soma who is part of the team took on the Thrones with little effort. The new GN-X mobile suits proved to be tough for the Trinitys to handle and moreover, there are 10 of them. Johann had no other choice but to issue a retreat order. Soma wanted to chase after them but was stopped by Sergei as he savours the cheering ground troops to what he called as “taste of vistory.” Team Trinity’s sudden retreat caught the attention of Ptolemaios crews and Sumeragi figured that HRL possesses the GN Drive technology. Meanwhile Alejandro and Libbons arrived at a secret base on the Moon. Using his power, Libbons opened the chamber that holds the backbone of Celestial Being – Veda.

Tieria smiles yet again. The animators are abusive his smile.

Don’t worry! The GN-X team is here.

Who’s better? GN-X or Gundam Throne?

Mobile Suit Gundam 00
This will answer it all. Sergei’s GN-X just kicked Neena’s Drei off her metal E-carbon ass.

Libbons is Tieria’s lost brother? Or is he changing his contact lenses today?

Behold! Veda. Tieria would be excited to see this.

Now the story goes about Gundams fighting against Gundams. Basically mobile suits with GN Drives are Gundams anyway, so I guess it’s okay to refer to those GN-Xs as Gundams. It also evident in this episode that Celestial Being is falling apart. First being the Team Trinity, and Alejandro who is has a rather sinister plan in mind, and now Wang Liu-Mei who does not discriminate sides. However the only notable difference between the Gundams now is that the ones used by Setsuna and the gang are the original GN Drive, unlike the ones used by the Thrones and GN-Xs. It is also disturbing to think about Schenberg’s intention because apparently Liu-Mei who is a devotee to his principles mentioned about keeping his ideals, meaning that uniting the world and end the war altogether is not exactly the endgame Schenberg had in mind. I also like the fact that Graham defended his pride as Flag pilot in his objective to defeat Gundams. Alright, so next episode, Setsuna gets pawned. Well, by the GN-Xs, who else? Celestial Being is definitely breaks to pieces this time.
