Disclaimer: For those who hate spoilers should avoid reading further! Anyway, these are only some of my opinions and thoughts after having watched the second episode of Unicorn Gundam. In this episode, the story continues with big-foot class MA like Kshatriya suffering a retreat after the confrontation with Unicorn Gundam. Then the pace started slowing down a little for more characters introduction and development, like Marida Cruz (pilot of Kshatriya), Angelo Sauper with his custom sniper type Geara Zulu and Riddhe Marcenas (pilot of the surviving Rezel team). Two of the characters who give audience the surprise would be unfolding of Audrey Burne true identity as the last surviving member of Zabi family - Mineva Lao Zabi and the leader of the Neo Zeon remnant forces known as Sleeves. This masked man is said to be the reincarnation of Char Aznable and he pilots the Sazabi look alike Sinanju.
Thereafter, adrenaline rush returned with fighting scenes continuing during the second half which I enjoyed most seeing the Rezel team taking on Sinanju. Rezel unit had proof their worth by putting up a better fight than what I saw in the first episode (killed @ 1st sight) but still they were no match to Sinanju who took them on single-handedly. The real challenge only starts when wonder boy Banagher and his Unicorn Gundam came to the rescue. This is the moment, you get to witness the intensity of Unicorn Gundam’s beam rifle (killing a Geara Zulu from a far distance in strayshot) and its I-field when shielding sniping beam rounds).
One scene that resemble a lot to the ‘First Gundam’ anime would be Sinanju giving Unicorn Gundam a kick. Suddenly, flashback of Char’s Zaku II kicking Amuro Ray’s Gundam RX-78-2 ran through my mind when I saw that. Before the end of the episode there was a glimpse of London Bell’s latest MS ‘Delta Plus’ which I believed Riddhe Marcenas would take Mineva Lao Zabi and escape in this MS (Just a wild guess). Oh, I almost forgotten, I saw GM III too!
