I believe that by now all of us knew that there was something "off" in Mikazuki and Orga friendship, bee the scenes of the opening showing them both walking on a pool of blood, or Mika covered by blood after killing someone.
i didn't really expected they to got that far with it, when he entered Orga room's in this episode it was a really good scene that showed us who Mika really is, and what is inside his troughs is scary
if Mebbit its to follow other gundam shows love interest i fear for her

Didn't the Brewer who piloted the Gusion commented to Mikazuki that the latter may be a sociopath?
Got up to date with the show.
... This show is terrible
Terrible at character development
Terrible at plot
Terrible at everything...
I wished they didn't spend episodes 10-17 doing absolutely fucking nothing, the story barely even moved, now everything feels so rushed.
they could have introduced Carta for example a little bit earlier, investigate further the Gundam Frame history and the whole must take this guy to the parliament should have taken place earlier so we could have a better fleshed out story.
for me the show is mediocre, its on the same levels as Gundam Age. Too much fucking tasted potential.
Can we agree that at least we got some good MS designs?

At the end of the day, I think it'll be a 5/10, maybe a 6/10 if it sticks the landing. There's certainly worse shows (Destiny, arguably AGE) but it is indeed wasted potential. That said though, I feel like it might hold up better from a marathon watch. Waiting for each episode week to week really highlights its flaws (End of Brewers arc up through Dort, Teiwaz to a lesser extent) so it might be easier to stomach if you can just plow through the filler-y episodes.
I do agree though, the MS designs are some of the best. Got the Hyakuren and Hyakuri already with some Grazes on the way. And that Graze Ein, wooboy I got the vapors :V

I too am not crazy about how this show has turned out. I wonder what the writing process was like - for the most part, you can cut things pretty cleanly into "all talk" episodes and "action centerpiece" episodes. Like, it's certainly apparent in plenty of anime/robot shows, there are episodes with battles shoved in for the sake of fulfilling the fighty time quota - but here, it frequently felt like the talky episodes were just long for no good reason, like they were being padded or shoving in information/character relationship re-re-reconfirmations that either didn't need to be there or would've been in another episode otherwise. Was it planned out in a way where they couldn't have any action at all until certain episodes? Or, even then, in such a way that not much at all could actually happen in the talky episodes?? We weren't exactly getting intellectually stimulating Gotoh-and-Arakawa type conversations as it was.
If nothing else, I'd at least say it's better than Gundam AGE's ideological emptiness and Destiny's incompetence. Of course, it's not great that the show's nearly over and this is a comparison we're having to make...I do remain curious to see whether or not we'll get a second season. If not...meh, what a wash. If so, the next part had better be pretty freakin' amazing to make going through a mostly meh first half worth it.
At the very least, this latest episode was the first one I actually looked forward to in a very long time, if only to see
IBO will fail horrible if it don't get a second season.
people at AnimeNewsNetwork are enjoying the show 4,5 out of 5,0 apparently. 1nd season incoming :O masked Azee incoming
poor Shino :\

I agree with you on this. If this series doesn't get a second season to solve the remaining plot points, I would dare to say this will even could even destroy the reputation of the whole Gundam franchise as a whole.
It also cause another big problem in the case when this series appears in SRW:

Yeah it will be a problem, but the good thing about SRW its that they can fix those things
but about the series, yes right on the point, if it don't get a 2nd season its ruined and it will be a unfinished story, Koudelia will not solve anything in a single episode, and all the meaning of this was?
