It seems like Jonah wants to join Rita in her freedom or at least recover her because he was unable to earlier in life and it seems as if she sacrificed herself to protect him and Michelle. Everyone else seems to have selfish motivations for their interest in Rita, explaining there desire to restrict Jona or perhaps pull them both in when he makes contact with Rita. At least that's what I got going by the first 23 mins.

Is Rita going to canonically be the most powerful Newtype after this movie and unseat Banagher? Say what you want but I think he comfortably displayed power beyond Paptimus, Kamille, Judah and Haman.
That's a good read and makes sense. Also I think she might be, but at the cost of being braindead from the implications given in those first 23 minutes.

Yea that's something I didn't consider, I suppose that's why in the posters that show the three children holding hands, you can see their adult selves reflected but you don't actually see Rita reflected but you do see her visage within the stars so perhaps that's to show she never made it beyond the mind of a child and her consciousness or perception of things is transcendent, cosmic.

You could also draw the interpretation that Michelle romantically desires Jonah but has been battling the ghost of Rita for years now, trying to have her self be realized by Jonah who is singularly focused on the girl he let sacrifice herself for his well being all those years ago. Zoltan Akkanen has an infatuation with The Phenex and the Narrative- likely as a consolation prize and I guess that's why he's latched on to the group as well, because he couldn't capture Rita/Phenex and thus has hooked onto the next best thing. Just my views of things.
 
You try to forget 00 exists is why. What did he even do? Did he also kill a young woman that was put through hell and finally found a sliver of happiness? WELL?!
Kill his father simply because daddy issues made him rationalize the belief that his father was responsible for a coup d'état when in reality he was trying to negotiate to end it.
Sergei Smirnov was a good man. His son was a trash human being blinded by misunderstandings and lust.
 
Yeah, I remember now, but I don't remember feeling too strongly about it. Riddhe was pretty trash, but killing Marida was just too much for me.
I remember myself mentally screaming at the screen telling Soma Peries to kill the motherfucker.
Comparatively, to Riddhe Marida is no one he should care about. More like a nuisance. From his point of view she is the pilot of a mobile suit that fights inside a colony at the beginning of Unicorn, the pilot that interrupts his seizing of Unicorn in an unauthorized mission, the girl who throws him into the ground out of nowhere for questioning Alberto Vist shady motives, the pilot who turns against the Delta Plus when she was supposed to be preventing Unicorn's escape and the pilot that tries to prevent him from finally engaging the Unicorn during the final race to Industrial 7.

This all may be true but it also took longer to read, than that nonsense character even was on screen lol.

Keep the Riddiah, we need something to sigh at when we click this page lol.

0079 is dark from episode one when, for all you know, Amuro might have inadvertently caused his father's death.
Tem Ray not actually being dead but having suffered brain damage from hypoxia isn't as bad but certainly not very good.
Yeah, that was definitely not nice. At least he's alive. I guess.

Not sure how to feel about the introduction of Newtypes at the moment. Sure, everyone was saying how Amuro was special from the beginning, but introducing this concept right at the end seems a bit late.

Zeta's really good for the most part, but I feel like it loses a lot of steam in the final quarter of the series. Not the last 2 or 3 episodes though, those are great.

But definitely watch it if you liked the original. It isn't my favorite, but it's still a really solid show.

The Catalan Republic
The only UC show I actively dislike is the F91 movie. I understand that in a parallel universe where the actual series was done maybe it is good but the movie is a hot mess of badly explained stuff that rarely makes sense and the story never has enough space to breathe.
