Episode 33: Emissary of Darkness! Chapman Rises Again

 

Review by Chris Guanche

July 26, 2001

 

Summary

 

Two British men named William and Hatheny argue about Chapman and the Gundam Fight. William wants Chapman to retire from the fight to retain some honor, but Hatheny disagrees. Elsewhere, everyone watches as Domon fights Neo Norway's Viking Gundam. The onlookers are protected by an energy barrier surrounding the stage. The God Gundam uses the Bakunetsu God Finger and wins the battle. Princess Maria Louise arrives to pay a surprise visit to her father the King and George. The King is surprised to see Maria and asks if she's in trouble again. George says he wants to go to Neo England's embassy, so Maria takes him. He says he has questions for Chapman about him being in the Finals. On the road they encounter Domon, Rain, Allenby and the kids at a fast food stand. George and Domon talk briefly, and they continue to the embassy. Hatheny talks with Wong and is told about George being the next opponent for Chapman. George and Maria are kept waiting in a room, so Maria goes for a walk. She passes by a gazebo and hears noises. When she comes closer, she sees Chapman murder William in the gazebo, and she sees a man with a ring standing in the shadows. Charpman attacks her, and George runs over to fight him. He asks Chapman why he is still alive and why he is in the Finals, but Chapman ignores him and presses the attack. He sees that Chapman is much stronger than before, and he accidentally rips open Chapman's sleeve and sees he is infected with DG cells. He grabs Maria meets up with Domon nearby. Chapman attacks Domon, and Allenby fights off several other thugs. Domon is amazed by Chapman's power, and he also sees the DG cells. When the police arrive, Chapman knocks Allenby aside and runs away. In a nearby tree, Michelo watches with disappointment and says he will help Chapman next time.

 

At Han's boat, the group discusses what happened. According to Neo England, William died of a heart attack. Maria tells George that it was definitely Chapman who killed William. Also, she remembers that another man was there, but she couldn't see who he was. The next day, George begins his fight with Chapman's John Bull Gundam, and he vows to defeat Chapman. Michelo and Hatheny take over the barrier control room and shut down the barrier in front of Maria's boat. One of Chapman's shots goes right by it. Michelo tells Maria that if she moves, he will remove the whole barrier. Domon, Rain and Allenby steal a boat and head for the barrier control room. George shields Maria's boat, but Chapman keeps firing and eventually disables George. Domon attacks Michelo, and Rain activates the barrier just in time to save Maria. George uses his Roses Bits and slams his beam saber into Chapman's cockpit. Suddenly, black smoke envelops the entire ring, and the massive Grand Gundam attacks George. Domon sees it and remembers it attacked him on his way to Neo Hong Kong. George uses his Roses Bits to attack the Grand Gundam's head and damage it. It vanishes, and only the John Bull Gundam remains with damage in the corresponding areas. Wong and Master Asia sail by after the fight, and Maria recognizes his ring as the same one of the man at the murder scene. Her father tells her not to say anything. Wong and Master Asia go to the secret underground chamber and watch as the Devil Gundam quickly regenerates.

 

Commentary

 

Well, it looks the story started in the last episode is continued here. Michelo and his goons keep personally attacking Domon and his friends, and they cheat by using powerful new Gundams in the Gundam Fight. The Chapman we see here is not the same as before. Here is nothing but a living corpse resurrected through DG cells. And his new Grand Gundam is very large and quite ugly looking. I wonder if George killed him this time for certain, or if the DG cells will resurrect him again. Now that the Devil Gundam is regenerating itself, it looks like Domon will have to fight it again pretty soon. Perhaps he can destroy it this time with the God Gundam.
