    Default Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn episode 3 discussion (SPOILERS)


    Finally watched the episode and it was great. It's a good mix of episode one's break-neck action and episode two's plot progression. The pacing was disjointed a bit, especially in the middle compared to episode two. There's some good character development here, especially Daguza and Banagher. Turns out, Daguza isn't really a jerk. He just needs to act like one so he can do his job. He was a pretty great guy and his death scene was quite powerful and brutal. According to this guy I know who read the novels, the OVA omitted one flashback scene about Daguza. The flashback showed him in a more sympathetic light and how ECOAS got the nickname "Manhunter unit". Also Riddhe and Banagher had a small "bro" moment.

    The battle of Palau was pretty forking awesome and it was neat to see some old suits from ZZ. I didn't realize the Zeon remnants were desperate enough even to use the Dra-C from the Delaz Fleet. We also see Marida's past. Glemy Toto and Qubeley Mass Production types even make cameos. Marida's prostitute past has been sanitized a bit and omitted some explicit stuff. The Kshatriya/Unicorn battle irked me since there's a bit of stock footage. Normally I wouldn't complain if it's a TV series but this is an OVA. They had a bigger budget and had six months to animate the episode. It's not SEED quality stock footage but c'mon. At least the funnel hijack bit was badass. Oh and it's not "Puru" after all. The official translation is "Ple". But the lolicon in me still prefers Puru. It sounds cuter.

    And finally the battle near Earth's atmosphere. This was pure smex and the music they used was epic, especially the part where Banagher went berserk and unleashed holy hell after Daguza's death. He gave that girly boy, Angelo, a good whupping. It was pretty obvious Gilboa is gonna bite the dust here. I mean so many obvious death flags. Overall, it was another great episode. Superb action and excellent animation. I'm really looking forward to episode 4. Sigh. Another six month wait I guess...

    Speaking of episode 4.

    Great review. I have yet to watch Episode 3 but will try and do so at some point this week.

    Also, I can't wait to see Bright and the Jesta in Episode 4!

    Looking forward to OVA 4. I hope more cameos make it in. Any chance Kou Uraki or anymore people from the previous shows make an appearance? The hi-jack funnel was awesome, but out of all the characters, Marida is shaping up as one of my most liked characters. And for a good reason or not, I can't find myself to like the dude with the purple hair. I don't even wanna bother wikiing his name.

    I'm not sure but I heard Kai Shiden also made a cameo in the original novels. I haven't heard anything about Kou Uraki but the Torrington base in Australia will make an appearance. Yes, I have to agree. Marida Cruz is shaping up to be a fan favorite. The purple-haired dude's name is Angelo Sauper and just like Marida, he has a pretty...uh..."colorful" history.
