    I'd totally play that if I weren't at my play-by-post limit. Also, y'know. This LP.

    But good luck. That's an awesome idea.

    Hey, some doujins were editted in when I wasn't looking!

    Rand/Gain/Roger? Truly, a manly combination. Mail, you little shipper you.

    As for the bunny suits... eh, saw that before.

    And yes, that was a seiyuu joke with Eiji and Shinn. They're voiced by the same guy.

    Well, we now have confirmation that bunny suits are standard equipment for all battleships and military facilities in times of war.

    I never quite got why Lefina is supposed to be that hot. I mean she isn't bad looking, but she isn't remarkably good looking compared to the other girls of the game.

    She's not supposed to be hot. She's innocent.

    I feel I must speak up, for the first time since I started lurking this thread (a couple weeks ago). I didn't have much to say about how the units should be distributed, largely because I'm not familiar enough with the mechanics of the game to be sure that I wouldn't be crippling your chances horribly.

    While I prefer Gunleon to the Balgora, I have a preference for Setsuko's supporting cast over Rand's, and the whole supporting cast > the main character. (In both cases, the one I don't like as much does have its moments, but that is still my conclusion.) Plus, I don't like Aquarion very much. Thus, my vote is for Setsuko's route.

    Cubey said he'd be happy if he gets more than 10 votes, so I'll make the eleventh one and vote for Setsuko. She gets a better upgrade.

    Believe it or not, lefina was in the big three of the favourite srw og character poll at some point at some site back then (the winner was latooni)

    I really hope the fans are not thinking "hot, I'd hit her!" when they look at Latooni. The girl is what, 14?

    And what's my favorite thing about Lefina? That one incident when Neue DC (and Murata) attacked while she was taking her rest. So she had to wake up to commandeer the ship. Not only was Lefina half-asleep and in a nightgown, she brought her pet plush lion. Which was sitting on her head during attack cut-ins. Like if it was the one in charge.

    Okay, screw this, if it's coming down to the wire: Setsuko. No, I haven't fully caught up in the LP. But eh. Putting a cute girl through an emotional wringer. I'm a terrible person. You do the math. (Hint: answer > loli wrenches.)

    Gah, I just remembered two reasons why I'd want to see Rand's route here as well. But you can't have a cake and eat it, and unless we suddenly get a lot of votes for Rand, Setsuko will win anyway... I might show you those reasons later, when they're no longer spoilers.

    Ha ha, I don't think so. Besides, Setsuko's route has a few things I want to see as well. There's just no winning.

    So, by popular decision: 7 (8, counting a friend who doesn't post here but still reads this LP) to 4 votes, the protagonist for all chapters of this LP, starting now, is:

    Setsuko Ohara. If you want a celebratory picture, feel free to google her and pick something for yourself. Just... make sure to keep the SFW filter up. Unless that's your kind of thing.

    This chapter is rather short so expect a new one to follow not too long after. I update often while I still have time to do so.

    ==============

    Chapter 10: Break the World

    The main character is nowhere in sight. Whom do we get instead?

    Introduction:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Private room aboard Glomar, an Emaan merchant ship.




    Slay: Would you like imported coffee? Or maybe... something more?


    Mimsy: Slay... I know you're my fiancee, but is that really the time for that?
    Slay: Yes. Remember about your age. Your remaining time as an Emaan woman is drawing to its end.
    Mimsy: You don't have to remind me of that!

    But before anything not safe for work can happen, the action moves to Glomar's bridge.




    Shaya: Oh, another teleportation incoming? They happen so often these days, don't they... wait! This pattern! Could it be... the Singularity?

    Kei: That was a rough landing... well, I'm still alive! I won't be killed that easily. Now, where am I?
    Mimsy: Shaya, look! We found him. What an outdated gerwalk... is it Chiram?


    Leeg: No, it looks much older than that.


    Goovu: At any rate, we finally found the Singularity. We should hide him before the Chiram arrive. I trust they will be here any moment.
    Shaya: That's true. Mimsy, could you call him?
    Mimsy: The Singularity, can you hear me? Do not be alarmed. We of the Emaan want to offer you shelter.
    Kei: Woah! What a cute girl! I mean... hello. My name's Kei. I won't say no to an invitation if it's given by a nice lady like you.
    Slay: Urgh. Hitting on my fiancee already? Is that really the Singularity?


    Chiram soldier: Singularity found! Hand him over, merchants! Singularity - you're coming with us!
    Leeg: That answers your question, Slay? We're in trouble.
    Kei: Hey, who are these new guys just now?
    Shaya: Oh no, the Chiram military is here! We are not giving anyone for free. The Emaan are a nation of merchants, in case you forgot. We require payment.
    Chiram soldier: We'll pay you... with bullets!
    Kei: Hey, that's not how you treat a lady! I'll have to show you a thing or two. Now, to the Emaan... Offer accepted, I'll be your guest from now on. Nice lady, what is your name?
    Mimsy: Mimsy. Thank you, Sing... no, I mean Kei! We already suffered from Chiram attacks in the past, don't underestimate them!
    Shaya: Maie, Lea, please provide backup for him!


    Maie: Leave it to me!


    Lea: Okay. Singularity, I got your back!
    Chiram soldier: Make sure the Singularity survives, but kill everyone else!


    Don't be fooled by their amusing, blocky design. Chiram units are strong and surprisingly hard to hit. Luckily, Kei didn't get any worse from before, and still kicks ass despite his meager Bronco II unit. The sisters' Morabbas are nothing special, but they and the Glomar will have to do the job. I have only 3 turns to eliminate all opponents, if I want the Skill Point that is.

    Kei: These are some weird machines... I don't recall seeing a design like that. Oh well, they'll go down if I pack them full of missiles just like everything else.
    Chiram soldier: Singularity's Device is attacking me! Argh!

    Chiram soldier: Attacking him is suicide for now. Focus on taking down the Emaan escort!
    Maie: I can still fight, you know.
    Lea: We refuse to keel down and die just like that!

    Kei: That's the spirit. Sorry guys, but it's my turn now! Into the breach!
    Mimsy: The Glomar will fight too, if we have to!

    Although it's technically a battleship, Glomar is only a civilian, merchant unit. Its weapons are not too good and its armor and HP are pathetically thin. It has its uses too, however: the ability to repair itself and others.

    Maie: The Chiram are attacking me again? But they won't hit!
    Kei: That one looks biggest and toughest. Is it their squad leader? I'll just aim for it then.
    Shaya: We'll go first. We can't let any harm come to the Singularity!
    Chiram soldier: Singularity... too much hax!

    Kei: Great job saving my hide, ladies. I really appreciate the gesture.
    Shaya: Everyone, Kei's unit will be coming aboard now.
    Mimsy: Shaya, what's that?


    Kei: Crows? What the heck? Is this normal for you?
    Mimsy: First time I see anything like that!

    Suddenly, reinforcements arrive to help! Most unexpected reinforcements...


    Neo: Emaan traders, do not be afraid! We've been dispatched to help you. These crows are our enemies too.
    Shaya: Thank you. But, what are these?
    Neo: Honestly, I have no idea. Must be something from a different world I'm not aware of. Let us take care of these now!
    Auel: Urgh. I hate fighting things like that. Not enough screaming and bleeding.
    Sting: Yeah, but it's still our mission. At least we're not under those stuck-up Titans this time.
    Stella: Neo, wait for meee! I want to kill them too!

    The Gundamjackers are on our side for now! Who saw that coming?

    Neo: Attack from their left flank!

    The mysterious crows are not a very tough opponent. I could probably handle them without reinforcements, especially since I already got the Skill Point for destroying Chiram so there's no need to worry about time anymore.

    Lea: They're going straight for me! Sorry, you won't be hitting anything! Oww... why?!
    Meia: Lea, are you alright?!
    Lea: Somehow... Okay, time to go down!
    Meia: Please, hit!
    Kei: And here's the last one.

    Shaya: Thank you so much for your help!
    Sting: Hey, doesn't that machine look familiar? Insurgent force from a few months' ago, anyone?
    Neo: Hmm...


    Neo: No. We have no interest in that. We'll be leaving now. Have a good day, madame.


    Lord Djibril: I just received a report. My task force completed their mission successfully.


    Edel: Thank you for lending them to UN. We are grateful.
    Lord Djibril: I hope you won't forget this when the time comes for you to decide what we should do with the Coordinators. It's time to take a stance, Edel Bernal. Do not forget.
    Edel: Why do I have to work with such prejudiced people... oh well... desperate times call for desperate measures. Peace must be maintained...

    And, back to Kei:


    Papty: Shaya! The Singularity is on board now.
    Kei: Hmm, these people are nice but they act kinda strange... where am I? A different universe? This is not science fiction... Huh, what's that?


    Jabby: It's just me, Jabby. Hello there.
    Kei: Woah, woah! What are you? You're not human!
    Jabby: That's mean...
    Mimsy: Kei, over here!


    Kei: What... tentacles? You're not humans?
    Mimsy: We're the Emaan. Don't be scared... Jabby is a friend. His people come from an alternate Earth.
    Kei: Alternate Earth? What's going on here? I'm totally lost - mind filling me in, Mimsy?
    Mimsy: Okay. I guess you really could use some exposition...

    Exposition time is go!

    Six months ago, the barriers between alternate universes came apart and many worlds became one. This resulted in great chaos, struggles, aliens and weird creatures, yadda yadda... eventually, a government (New Earth Federation) was created, or rather merged from several of the worlds' governments. It allied itself with the Chiram people and controls most of the planet now. A natural-occuring barrier makes it impossible to enter or leave atmosphere on most of the globe, but there are exceptions. Meanwhile, ZAFT remains independent, but is blamed for the Junius Seven incident, when fragments of the colony dropped on Earth and caused destruction. Since many people blame this as the cause of the worlds fusing, no surprise that the Federation is hostile to ZAFT now.

    Oh, and a centralized information network has been established to keep everyone up to date with news, since every day is a struggle and brings changes now and all. It's known as the Internet UN. No correlation with United Nations.

    Kei: That's a hell of a story. By the way Mimsy, do you know anything about a Space Elevator falling down on anyone's heads?
    Mimsy: Space Elevator?
    Kei: Phew...

    Intermission! We have only the Orguss people available, but not for long because the next chapter takes place somewhere completely different. And since the next time we meet Kei, he'll have a different, better (read: more expensive to upgrade) unit, I won't let an opportunity slide:


    Weapon upgrades!

    All's fun, but what about our protagonist?

    Next chapter: CAST IN THE NAME OF GOD
    YE NOT GUILTY

    Sorry. I do adore GUN-GUN-LEON, GUNLEON, but I cannot deny the utter, cheesy awesomeness that is Grendizer, I infinitely prefer Gravion to Aquarion, and the Gundam series are also pretty sweet (particularly the old-school units). And yes, the promise of Big O doesn't hurt either. The only part of Rand's group that I enjoy as much are the Xabungle units.

    Ahhh, Orguss people. I so love your crazy hair. I didn't know that the Emaan weren't human though. Then again, it's damn near impossible to find detailed information on Orguss.

    Kei is a major pervert, so I am sure he found a use sooner or later. Also, these are not tentacles per se, but more like very long tendrils.

    Another difference between Emaan and humans is that female Emaan completely lose their fertility upon turning 18. This makes Slay's nagging look more reasonable. He's still a sexist jerk, but slightly less so.

    Fortunately, Kei is neither a lolicon (as you'll see later) nor an ephebophile. He likes girls, but will not put any moves on underage ones. Anyone above 18 is free game though.

    And honestly, I think it's to give the Orguss world a quasi-medieval feel. We have a super-militarized, controlled nation, but the wandering traders are no more free, they're still bound by harsh tradition.

    It's a disc with special materials: an attack viewer like in OG Gaiden, official art collection, etc. But also, side missions! Some of them appear before or during the main storyline, just elsewhere, others are shortly after. It's not a standalone, because the content unlocks depending on your save states and progress in the actual game.

    It includes Overman XAN, which is a boss in one of the extra chapters and is supposedly super-hardcore. As fitting of something which has the power of an Overman AND the Turn X, maybe more.

    I don't have that disc so we won't be seeing it in the LP though.

    By the way, I wanted to voice my appreciation for actually showing the attacks of minor and Mook enemy units. Most other vids tend to skip them, and you don't get a chance to see them in action.

    Do you mean most other videos as in other LPs/"all attacks" on youtube, or other videos of my Let's Play? I try to showoff all units and their attacks, not just the squad leader ones, for precisely that reason: because youtube doesn't. And that's a waste. Even the weak units still have nice attack animations.

    Another relatively short chapter this time. Short, but awesome. The future updates will be rather long in comparison, it means they will come less often too. Especially since I'll be rather busy for the rest of the month. But that only means rare updates are more exciting, right?

    ===========

    Chapter 11: Paradigm Shift

    Negotiator.
    Android.
    Butler.
    Officer.
    Moeblob. Wait, what?

    Introduction. And a positively huge one this time. A cool noir soundtrack to listen to when reading is optional, but highly suggested.
    Spoiler

    Denzel: Setsukoooo... I knew being black and entering a redshirt mecha was a bad ideaaa... I'm a ghoooost now...


    Setsuko: Chief? Is that you? Please don't talk like this. It's scary... and what will become of Glory Stars now? You're dead! I...
    Denzel: Don't worry about me. Walk on forward, with pride! The Glory Stars will never die as long as you are alive! I know you will make me and Toby proud.
    Toby: Hey, I'm still alive, you know.
    Denzel: Why do you appear as a ghost then? Okay, addendum to what I said, Setsuko. Find this no-gooder and keep him out of trouble. Okay, gotta go now.


    Setsuko: Wait! Chief!


    Dorothy: Norman, our guest is awake now. A classic "sit up in shock" situation.
    Setsuko: Umm... wait, where am I?


    Norman: Finally! You were asleep for so many days, miss. I was starting to get worried. I am but a humble butler, Norman Burg. May we know who we're dealing with?
    Setsuko: Ohara Setsuko... Huh? Is that all? I can't remember anything... my memories... are gone?
    Dorothy: That's not really unexpected.
    Norman: Indeed. After all, this is Paradigm City, the city of lost memories. But don't worry - you are safe here, miss. The master of this house ordered that any ladies, especially those in distress, are allowed to stay here unconditionally and receive all help they need.
    Dorothy: Yes. He decided that, not concerned on how much trouble it may bring on Norman's head.
    Setsuko: Oh... how long was I out for? I could really use a parfait right now... or four.


    Norman: What appetite! Anyway - everyone in this city lost their memories 40 years ago. But, life has to go on one way or another... if your old identity is lost, I think you should try to craft a new one in Paradigm.
    Setsuko: But... I can't do that! For some reason, I have a feeling what I was doing before is very important. I need my memories back!
    Norman: I see. In that case, the master may be able to help. Unfortunately, he disappeared several days ago, during his investigation concerning a difficult negotiation.
    Setsuko: Negotiation?
    Norman: Yes, he is a Negotiator after all. The best of his kind, if I may say so. You probably heard his name before, but it is gone with the rest of your memories... Roger Smith.
    Dorothy: With our guest awake, I should go out and look for that louse now.
    Norman: I will stay and keep the house safe. Miss Setsuko, would you make us a favor and accompany Dorothy in her investigation? The city is dangerous for a lone girl like her. That way, you may even find something that will stir your memory.
    Setsuko: The city is dangerous? But I'm not a bodyguard... will two women be able to...
    Dorothy: Do not worry. We will be fine.

    And so, the search for Roger starts!


    Setsuko: What is this?
    Dorothy: This is the dome of the Paradigm Group. The rich of Paradigm live in domes, away from smog and poverty, and this is the largest of them.
    Setsuko: Oh. So, where do we go first, Chief?
    Dorothy: Chief?
    Setsuko: I... am used to calling people that, for some reason. It just fits somehow.
    Dorothy: Chief... so be it then.


    Davu: Hey, T-Bone. Is that who I think it is?


    T-Bone: Yeah! It's the maid or something of that black crow guy. I don't recognize the other girl... but boss will be happy. Let's get them!


    T-Bone: You'll be coming with us! Don't worry, we're not gonna hurt you, ladies.
    Davu: You'll only serve as bait to lure the Negotiator out. Hehehe...
    Setsuko: Who are you?
    Dorothy: I will handle this.
    Grip. Crash!
    T-Bone: She lifted... a whole street lamp?
    Davu: That's not human... run!
    T-Bone: You said it!
    Dorothy: No-goods. Even worse than that louse.
    Setsuko: Umm, how were you able to do that? You didn't look that strong...
    Dorothy: I am an android. You did not know? Oh, I must have forgot to mention that.
    Setsuko: This city looks so retro... yet it has working lifelike androids?


    Angel: Bravo! You handled these thugs masterfully, R. Dorothy Wayneright. I didn't even have to intervene.
    Setsuko: Umm, and you might be?
    Angel: Angel. I'm an independent agent. I assume you two are looking for Roger? He disappeared from the face of the Earth, I'm afraid.
    Setsuko: Then you think he might be already...
    Dorothy: Dead? I wouldn't count on it. He is too resilient to be killed easily. Like a cockroach.
    Angel: Well said! I'd start your search at the Speakeasy bar. One of Roger's informers can be found over there, most of the time.
    Setsuko: That's very helpful! Thank you, Angel.
    Angel: Don't mention it. You're not the only one who wants to find Roger, Setsuko Ohara. I must go now. Excuse me.
    Setsuko: Umm... how do you know my name? She's gone now...




    Big Ear: No... I didn't talk to Roger Smith for a while. He is as lost to me as it is to you.
    Setsuko: Then, we came all the way here for nothing?
    Dorothy: Except for your strawberry milkshake, you mean.
    Big Ear: There is a name Roger was investigating earlier... Michael Seebach. A reporter. He was obsessed with finding "the Truth". He suffered from a terrible accident and later disappeared altogether. It cannot be a coincidence that Roger went missing while investigating him.
    Setsuko: So, where we will find Seebach, we will find Roger?
    Big Ear: Most likely.
    Dorothy: We have company.


    Dastun: Dorothy Wayneright... and a newcomer lady, in here? You must have been talking with Smith's informer.
    Setsuko: Umm, yes. Does everyone know Roger in this city?
    Dastun: Sometimes I wish I didn't! He should've never left the force. The city's in an uproar, prisoners in the precinct jail are restless... and the one time we could actually use his skills, he's gone off the face of the Earth! Talk about professional responsibility.
    Dorothy: Officer Dastun, where was Roger Smith the last time you saw him?
    Dastun: So determined to find him? If he's really that worth it, I can help you... Gordon Rosewater. He was heading to old Gordon's private dome.
    Dorothy: Rosewater...
    Setsuko: Is that someone important?
    Dastun: You really are a newcomer, miss. Rosewater created the whole city! And his son, Alex Rosewater, is its king and master now. If you intend to stay here, you should remember these names... and people rarely leave Paradigm. Those who are born in the city, or find their way to the city - stay in the city. That is our curse.
    Setsuko: I'm not sure I like this...
    Dastun: Barely anyone does.




    Gordon: Guests? How unusual. Stay a while, by all means.
    Dorothy: Have you seen Roger Smith recently, Gordon Rosewater?
    Gordon: Indeed! And we talked to each other. I told him... about my tomatoes. Would you like to listen?
    Dorothy: I am not a farming enthusiast.
    Gordon: My tomatoes are artificially flavored. This is the only way they can grow in Paradigm, even under this dome. I inject them with flavor - the tomato can only hope it will taste like the original. It is just an imitation. But, if an imitation is perfect enough, doesn't it become indistinguishable from the original?
    Setsuko: That's nice... I think.
    Gordon: I have words for you, too. You are a tomato that tumbled away its basket. Some of the harvest were lost already... but others are still there. Find the basket and the rest of the harvest, young tomato! Or a mean farmer will decide your fate and your new basket for you.
    Setsuko: That sounds ominous... but why all the tomato analogies? Why did you call me a tomato, too?
    Gordon: I like growing tomatoes.
    Angel: It's me again. This time I come with a message. Setsuko, Alex Rosewater wants to see you.
    Setsuko: The king and master of Paradigm City?
    Dorothy: He is only the chairman of Paradigm Group. But that means pretty much the same thing.
    Angel: I know you may be suspicious, but try to trust me. He wants to help you, too.



    Setsuko: What a huge room... even the Titans weren't so grandiose.


    Rosewater: Welcome in my humble abode! I am pleased to play host to such charming ladies. Okay, enough of pleasantries. Setsuko Ohara, I know you are not from the city. And that you lost your memory.
    Setsuko: Does everyone know me in this city, too?
    Rosewater: News travel fast. I only want one thing from you, my dear: if your memories ever return, do you mind sharing them with me? I am extremely curious. And not only that, it will help the city too.
    Setsuko: Is... that so...
    Rosewater: Indeed. Look at its streets, on the verge of riots. Perhaps what it really needs is a fire, to wipe out all the criminals, beggars and other scum. I don't know what my old man was thinking, and what happened 40 years ago... but I want to know. I must know.
    Setsuko: Umm, okay. I think I'll be going now.
    Rosewater: Do not forget about my offer. It would be in your best interest not to forget it.

    Setsuko: Well... we didn't learn a lot, did we Chief?
    Dorothy: I am afraid so. It is getting late. Are you not tired?
    Setsuko: Now that you mention it... I am exhausted from walking all over the place.
    Dorothy: I will call a taxi then.

    Setsuko: Hmm, Dorothy is gone for a while now. Oh, there she is! Why are you cosplaying as Red Riding Hood?


    R. D: Cast in the name of...
    Setsuko: I'm sorry, I cannot hear... wait. You are not Dorothy.
    R. D: Your memories... I cannot let them awaken! You will die here!
    Setsuko: Uh oh... someone, help!

    ???: Hold it right there, R. D!


    R. D: I finally found you...


    Roger: No, I finally found you. The travel through Paradigm's underbelly was not a pleasant one, but I am here now. And in the nick of time: whomever this lady may be, I will not let harm come to her. That is one of Roger Smith's rules.
    R. D: ROGEEEEEEEER!
    Roger: Dorothy is on her way with backup. We should run for now.
    Setsuko: O... okay! Wait... explosions, again?!




    Beck: Hee hee hee! This Beck Victory Deluxe is something. Thanks for breaking me out of the slammer, guys.
    T-Bone: No problem, boss.
    Roger: Just what we need for further headache. Beck - where did he find that megadeus?
    Beck: I'd recognize that lack of fashion sense anywhere! Roger Smith! You will pay for what you did to me! I will humiliate you once and for all!
    R. D: ROGAAAAAA!
    Beck: Away with you, pest!
    Stomp.
    Davu: Wow, boss. That was cool!
    Beck: I know, I know! And for my second act, I'll wreak the whole city. You can only look helplessly and weep, stupid Negotiator!
    Roger: Hmph. You just saved my life from a bloodthirsty android on a rampage, so I will spare yours. But I will not let your other actions get unpunished! Miss, there will be a fair bit of rubble flying around. I suggest you stay aside.
    Setsuko: Huh? What are you going to do?


    Roger: BIG O! SHOWTIME!
    Beck: So, the black ugly crow Megadeus shows up! Excellent, everyone will see how pitiful it is when this Beck Victory Deluxe trashes it!
    Roger: You will be the trashed one. Cease your actions immediately while you still have the chance, Beck!
    Beck: Not in a thousand years. Not in a million-gazillion years!
    Roger: Then let our fists do the talking. Big O - action!

    The Big O is an awesome unit. It's tough and especially good on taking down ground targets. But even if it sucked, I'd still use it all the time.
    Because it's SO. DAMN. STYLISH.

    Beck: That all you got, crow?
    Roger: The light of justice will pierce the darkness. Take this!
    Beck: Gaah! I still have a trick up my sleeve, you know!
    Roger: However, I must point out that your Megadeus does not have sleeves. Also, nobody insults my fashion sense, least of all you. Time for the finishing hit - eeey!

    Roger totally did not channel the Fonz there. Also, there's a reason why I waited until my phase to destroy Beck...

    Beck: Damn! I won't forget this!
    Dastun: The Megadeus again... who does he think he is, ruining the city without police authorization!
    Roger: Well, one problem solved. How many are left now, I wonder?

    Suddenly!


    Schwartzwald: Hahaha... the black Megadeus finally appears. You will be the first one to know the Truth, Roger Smith!
    Roger: Schwartzwald... no - Michael Seebach! I have no idea where you found this mummy, but cease your actions at once!
    Schwartzwald: Your petty arguments will not stop me, Negotiator. For I have seen the Truth behind Paradigm City! The Truth must be known to everyone, and I will deliver it. Even if it means everything must burn!
    Roger: You have gone quite insane. I will resort to force if I have to!
    Schwartzwald: Oh really? How about facing the pets I found under Paradigm, then?
    Setsuko: I am totally lost on what's going on now...
    Dorothy: As always, that louse got himself in more trouble than he is able to easily handle. Could you assist him, miss Ohara? Your Megadeus has just been repaired by Norman.
    Setsuko: This is... mine? It looks so familiar...
    Dorothy: Indeed. It was ruined so Norman had to spend all his spare time restoring it to pristine condition.
    Setsuko: What is this... just from nearing it, I feel... sadness... depression... self-narration...
    Schwartzwald: That's right, little girl! You are not strong enough. You want the Truth? You cannot handle the Truth!
    Roger: That is not true! Anyone chosen by his or her Megadeus is brave and worthy to face any truth, no matter how horrible it may be.
    Setsuko: I'll face it... somehow I know - the sadness I feel now is nothing compared to what I had to experience before. System start... Glory Star... I remember it now! I remember it all! I am Setsuko Ohara, of the Glory Stars unit!
    Schwartzwald: So, you have discovered your own Truth? Excellent! Then you will not oppose me from delivering it to the rest of the world, I take it?
    Roger: Your efforts may be noble, Seebach, but your methods are insane! Are you ready, miss... no, Setsuko? We'll just have to take all the enemies down!

    I have three turns (since Schwartzwald appeared, not since the start of the chapter) to destroy all the Archetype mooks, as well as the Mummy boss.

    Roger: These Megadei will cause massive damage to the city. There is no helping it - I will show you the Big O's power!

    Nevermind that the Big O itself could be called Collateral Damage Bot. The mooks of this stage are not too strong, being mooks and all, although their HP is higher than normal. Still a long way to go compared to Shadow Angels.

    Roger: It's SHOWTIME!

    Yes, definitely a long way to go. Or Big O is just that awesome.

    Setsuko: That was the last of the "pets"!
    Schwartzwald: Are you ready, Roger Smith?
    Roger: Schwartzwald, your madness must cease!

    Setsuko: Chief's power... it is in my hands now! I will use it against you!
    Schwartzwald: Is that all? Is that really all of your real strength? Then, I'll show you the resolve of my own!
    Setsuko: Calm down... it's not over yet...
    Roger: That's it. Using violence against women is not a policy that Roger Smith will accept! Let's go, Big O - full power impact!
    Schwartzwald: Bwahahahahaha! You think you have me here, Roger Smith? I won't be stopped so easily!
    Dorothy: It wasn't really a mummy all along.
    Setsuko: What? It's real form... was hidden under the bandages?
    Roger: The Big O, but... red?
    Schwartzwald: Hahaha! That's right. This is a Megadeus not unlike yours. And this will be the tool that will reveal the world the Truth, of what happened 40 years ago! Mine is the drill that will pierce the heavens, so good-bye - off I go!
    Roger: It can fly, too! Damn, I can't stop him now... but at least I managed to save a lady in distress. Isn't that right, Dorothy?
    Dorothy: Roger Smith, you are a louse.
    Roger: Well, what are you doing to do now, Setsuko? Will you settle down in Paradigm?


    Setsuko: No. I remember everything now - there are still people waiting for me outside. Toby... he is still alive somewhere out there, and I will find him! Chief entrusted me to do so! Well, it was more like a ghost hallucination... but it still counts! So, excuse me for being rude, but I must go this very moment. Good-bye!
    Roger: What a fascinating young woman... let's hope we meet again. In the meantime, I was thinking of widening the sphere of my business. Somewhere beyond town - I heard the views are quite nice. What do you think, Norman old friend?
    Norman: An excellent idea! I will pack a lot of spare clothes immediately.
    Roger: Make sure they are all black. This is the only color accepted by my rules!
    Dorothy: I already said what you are, Roger.
    Rosewater: So, the Negotiator seeks to break the laws of this city, too? Doesn't he see where all this will take him? Very well... I'll take the future as it comes - as well as the past!

    Intermission time! See me fumble around with parts and upgrades, as I mistake Balgora's mobility for energy, but back out before I make a mistake. Overall, some solid upgrades for both of my available units. It eats up a lot of my credits - and is totally worth it.

    Next chapter: Don't lose your dreams, even in a small town, where nothing ever happens - you can fly!

    ===========

    Cubey notes: character and organisation list will be updated later. Also, just so you know: this is my favorite mission in the game. Whether the hero is Setsuko or Rand.
