Just watched the last episode again first time I watched it I was pissed how things ended for tekkadan but after rewarching it a second time I'm still sad but tekkadan overall was given a good ending and Mika died fullying his goal.
I also got a good chuckle with noblesse dying on the toilet.
I saw the final episode last evening, and I slept through the night. IBO isn't my favorite, but the ending was just executed very well. It's still lingering in my thoughts even now while I'm at work.
With the last glance of group pic, IBO's journey finally comes to a stop. It was a fitting end to IBO franchise but somehow this looks like a revised ending to me. It was just too.... nice for a story line that is so dark in the first place... Loose ends tied up, whomever should deserve to die died and spending 1/2 the episode telling these part of story... I guess the producers just want to pacify the fans and make everyone happy in the end...
Is the the best Gundam series so far? from a neutral stand point. I believe it did not disappoint. It contain enough elements to keep the 'old school' gundamisters entertained while bringing in flesh blood into the gundam franchise. Ultimately this is what the company wants to achieve.
But what fixated me the most will always be 'The Devil of the McGillis Fareed Incident"
War. War never changes.
I loved seeing the Lupus Rex get unleashed and "rampaging". I mean, we got to see it in the prior incarnations of the Barbatos, so I'm glad they gave the Lupus Rex some time without its limiters. Also, did you ever think that perhaps Mika could've survived those wounds but he died because he released the limiters again? They were more or less pointing to the fact that if the limiters were released again Mika would die. In reality though it was probably a combination of both.

Regarding Julietta, I started to soften up to her during that single final episode. She finally understood what kind of people Tekkadan were, especially Mika.
Beheading Barbatos were more of just a showmanship as a figurehead of Gjallarhon. It's like a duty to perform on her part.

Almiria, what happened to her? I think she's the only one not to have a proper epilogue.

She didn't really behead him though. She stabbed through the Rex's neck to complete disable the machine. The whole section was stuck to the sword, which she lifted up in the end, and it broke free from the unit.

If Newtypes can predict the future, and feel their opponents intentions, how come none of them were ever able to dodge the Bright Slap?
