    Banagher may be weary of fighting, but when a new battle erupts over Laplace's box it's the youth vs. Zinnerman on the right action to take. What will happen?

    Anyway after 8 minutes of recap, more Banagher emoness.

    This series is an example of why repackaging an OVA as a anime series is not a good idea, I am serious in original OVA format, this is way better.

    Last time: Banagher goes through that seething angst phase that all mecha pilots go through.

    Bleach's recaps were less tedious than the ones on this show.

    "The people who dropped a colony"? Sounds like another way of saying they all took a dump.

    So they sent soldiers down there to Ishtval everyone.

    Wow, that scene was actually pretty good, especially by this show's standards.

    "Laplace", "La+" "Cardeas Vist" and now "Zee Zulus"? Is this dub even in English?

    Meanwhile, at Sleeping Beauty's castle...

    Meanwhile, in war-torn Vietnam...

    Meanwhile, on the Outlaw Star...

    These Gundams bleed like EVA units!

    I'm getting the impression that an attack is taking place.

    Episode 11 was pretty great,

    Other Zeon Remnant forces from around the world were great dangerous antagonists, nice build-up on the Zeon Remnant forces next to the Phantom Troupe:D.

    The second clue to Laplace's Box was interesting.

    Loni Garvey, my favorite awesome cute new female villainess who's a great dangerous menace.

    Nice to see Captain Zinnerman's tragic past, his family will be missed which I feel sorry for him:(.

    Banagher out to stop/confront Loni and looking for a better way to use Laplace's Box was great.

    We've had two episodes of Banagher moping in the desert. I assume that this took only one episode of the OVA. You know what, this show needs a Gendo. Someone needs to tell our protagonist to stop moping and get in the damn robot.

    Why do I get the feeling Garvey's going to be a complete pain down the line? Also, it feels like Banagher's friends haven't shown up in forever. This episode was fine, just a little slow, and the conversation between Banagher and Zinnerman was nice.

    I thought that this episode was okay. The conversation between Banagher and Zinnerman was actually pretty nice. It was a bit heavy handed with the environmental and social issues, but to be fair, that's all still pretty much true, especially the part about how society should serve the people instead of the other way around. I actually kind of liked how Zinnerman reacted to Banagher crying. All too often, crying is treated as a sign of weakness or something that people should be ashamed of, but they didn't do that here. Never crying over anything can be a problem in itself, so I kind of liked that they handled it in that way. I know people don't like that Banagher has been moping lately and I'm not into it myself, but I give them credit for not treating crying like something terrible.

    But then the show was back to boring exposition with some action thrown in there. I had no idea what was going on given that I didn't know too many of the characters involved in the fight. Banagher wanted to learn where the box could be, but I almost questioned if he changed sides given that he was able to roam around and help out with the crew. Granted, they did mention that they wouldn't stand a chance if they turned on them while in the Unicorn, but he showed no interest in trying to get back to the space station and his friends could be dead for all he has shown to care about them. Overall, it was an okay episode.
