Episode 10: Reunion

 

Review by Chris Guanche

Summary

 

Kamille continues to program Haro, but it still calls him Amuro. Emma tells him that the new Flying Armor is being placed on the Mk II. Kamille speaks with Astoniage, who tells him that the Flying Armor will serve as the prototype for the Zeta Gundam's Waverider system that Kamille designed. Astoniage also tells them that the flying armor will be tested when they head for Earth to attack Jaburo. Emma asks Char why they are attacking Jaburo, and she says Gryps is a better target. He says she is wrong, but she sees that he doesn't like the plan either. On the Alexandria, Jamaican looks at a picture of the Sachiwaru, which the AEUG stole. Kacricon and Jerid plan to attack the Mk II with a time delayed attack so that their two Marasais appear as one. As the Argama prepares to take off, a missile barrage is fired at Amman. Char and Kamille head out to draw away the enemy. Kacricon spots Kamille at an area surrounded by lunar rocks and attacks him. As he disappears, Jerid appears and attacks. Kacricon swings by again and destroys Kamille's shield. When they move around, he figures out that there are two Marasais. When one of them jumps up, he stays down to avoid the trap. He makes a dust cloud with his thrusters and manages to damage Jerid's Marasai. Near Amman, Emma fights off some Hizacks. Char helps her out and orders her to defend the ship while he calls back Kamille.

 

Kacricon knocks down Kamille, and Kamille is saved by Wong's Junior mobile suit. Char arrives, and he helps Kamille chase off Kacricon and Jerid. The Argama and Radish leave Amman and set course for Earth. The Alexandria launches a final missile volley that completely destroys Amman. Henken tells Kamille that his actions in the battle helped save the Argama. Kamille rests briefly as the Argama heads for Earth. Later, the Argama receives a distress call from the shuttle Temptation, which is being pursued by a mobile armor. Kamille recognizes that as Bright's ship, and he heads out with Char to help. The Hyaku-Shiki uses the Mega Bazooka Launcher to engage the mobile armor Messala, but its pilot Paptimus Scirocco proves to be skilled enough to evade Char. Kamille wants to pursue him, but Char orders him to extinguish the fires on the Temptation's engines. The Temptation is towed back to the Argama, where Bright meets Char and sees through his :Quattro Bajeena" disguise. Kamille introduces himself to Bright, but he is interrupted when Fa jumps on him from out of nowhere and hugs him. She tells him that Bask is holding her parents hostage because Kamille stole the Mk II. She tells Kamille that Bright helped her get on his shuttle, and Kamille curses the Titans.

 

Commentary

 

Overall, an interesting episode. I'm starting to like Jerid more and more each episode. The time-delayed attack that he and Kacricon used on Kamille is a great idea (I'm surprised I haven't seen it elsewhere). Kamille was actually fooled by it for some time. It was also good to see Bright again, because when we last saw him he was getting a real beating from Bask The appearance of a mobile suit pilot who is Char's match is interesting. Though we don't see Scirocco much in this episode, he's going to be a major player later on. I'll bet that Char hasn't fought anyone like Scirocco since his last battle with Amuro. We'll have to see how this turns out.
