After not having an episode last week, I was excited for this weeks. However, it had some ups and downs for me.
While it was nice to see Lockon in the tight shirt, I wish that he did more this episode. At least he did some sniping (and not with his Gundam, LOL). Hong Rong turns out to be a kung fu version of Zorro! Here's our masked man! I still don't know the purpose of Saji, but I think that he will eventually get involved. Eventually.
Newtype and Animage magazines have some spoilers for the upcoming episodes, which will introduce some new pilots, including one who is female.
