Episode 32: Unidentified Mobile Suits

 

Review by Chris Guanche

January 24, 2002

 

Summary

 

After leaving Von Braun, the Argama continues repairs. Wong wants to meet the ship that left Axis before the Titans negotiate with it, but Char wants to go back to the Moon. Wong says that's impossible because his orders come from Melanie. Bright says that if they head back to the Moon, the Titans will make contact with Axis first. Kamille sees Fa playing with Haro and the kids, and Wong tells him to prepare the Zeta Gundam for battle. Wong thinks Char is weird for bringing kids aboard the ship, and he gives Shinta and Qum drinks. Char eats with Reccoa, but she feels uneasy and leaves. Kamille asks what's going on, but he gets no answer. Char tells him he should prepare himself to enter people's minds. Aboard the Dogosse Giar, Scirocco tracks the Argama's movements and asks Sarah what she thinks of Yazan. She says he's brutal like a beast, and Scirocco likes that. On the Argama, Bright learns that the Dogosse Giar is moving on a parallel course with them towards Axis. Wong orders Bright to attack the Dogosse Giar before it reaches the Axis ship. Char visits Reccoa and asks her to help protect the Mega Bazooka Launcher when they go into battle. He asks her why she is throwing away her plants, and she says she wants to throw away everything. Char tells her no one can throw away everything until they die. Reccoa asks him if he's ever cried before, and he gives her a kiss. Kamille, Apolly, Char and Reccoa launch with some Nemo escorts. Char and Reccoa grab the Mega Bazooka Launcher to attack the Dogosse Giar. Scirocco meets with Yazan and asks him what he thinks of the new Hambrabi mobile suit. Yazan says he doesn't like it because it has a strange power. Scirocco says one can't win with power alone, and that strange feeling is due to him. Scirocco is informed of the approach of the AEUG suits, and he tells Yazan not to go into battle yet. Yazan leaves to standby, and Sarah wonders if he will get along with Scirocco.

 

The Dogosse Giar launches a squad of Marasais and Hizacks, and Kamille and Apolly fight them. Char positions the Hyaku-Shiki to fire the Mega Bazooka Launcher, and Reccoa connects to it to help supply energy. Char feels a lot of pressure from the ship and realizes it is Scirocco. Char fires, but he misses the first time. On the next round, he hits the Dogosse Giar's mobile suit deck. Char fires again, and the blast passes by the Dogosse Giar's bridge. Yazan launches in a Hambrabi just before Char hits the mobile suit deck again. Char tells Reccoa to leave, and she remembers her encounter with Scirocco on the Jupitris. She turns around and heads for the Dogosse Giar because she feels Scirocco's sign. Kamille fights off the Marasais and Hizacks. Yazan attacks Kamille, and he seems to have the advantage in speed with the Hambrabi. The Argama is surrounded by enemy mobile suits, and Wong tells Bright to send Fa out in the Methuss, but Bright refuses. Kamille runs out of ammo, and as Yazan rushes toward him, Reccoa slams into him with the Gelgoog. Yazan continues his attack and damages the Gelgoog. Kamille tells Reccoa to escape, and she says she can't leave him behind. Yazan moves in for another attack and is chased off by the attack of a large group of Gaza-C mobile suits from Axis. The Gaza-C suits destroy the Marasais and Hizacks. Scirocco orders his forces to retreat. After the battle, Char wonders if Haman Karn is in one of the mobile suits. Kamille thanks Reccoa for saving him, and she tells him it is repayment for Jaburo. He asks her why she was in that area if the Gelgoog had no weapons, and she tells him she doesn't have to answer. He grabs her, but she tells him not worry about her and leaves. She returns to her room and thinks about Scirocco.

 

Commentary

 

It looks like we have a new faction in the war, now that the Zeon from Axis have arrived. Wong mentions the Titans wanting to negotiate with Axis, which would seem to go against their mission. However, since all they care about is power, I don't think anyone will object. Reccoa seems to be acting strangely, and she's thinking a lot about Scirocco. She seems to be obsessed with him almost as much as Sarah is. This obsession all stems from her brief encounter with him on the Jupitris. I have the feeling that soon she'll betray everyone and join Scirocco. If she does, that'll certainly create some interesting conflict when the next battle begins.
