Part 15: Mission 6 - The Day the Sky Fell - Part 2
Following a barrage from Michel and Luca, Jeffrey casts Strike and takes aim.
So, this ship not only has a barrier, it has a legit shield!
Satous group is getting chopped up by ZAFT, so well clear the more distant guys.
Thanks, Boss Ichitaka takes it, while Iczer-1 goes for Reijis survivor.
Hyoumall use his magnetic personality to run interference on the northern terrorists.
: Well put an end to your insane plan even if it takes our lives to do it!
: Youre all whelps whove forgotten their pride as Coordinators and I wont suffer you interfering with our cause!
Satos further damaged by Jeffrey (who also takes two nearby GINNs); up top, Heines holding the line.
Heine: Urk! Orange DOES stick out like a sore thumb in a battlefield, I guess !
Hyouma trades blows with a bunch of stuff: two kills for him, one for Shizuna.
: Mimetic Beasts?!
: Its those giant monsters from when we faced Cobalt!
: Are you serious?! There are Mimetic Beasts in space too?!
: Hm, they nested inside Cosmo Base not too long ago. Likely snuck aboard a shuttle carrying foodstuffs or something and multiplied.
: These things are really nasty like a bunch of cockroaches from hell!
: Only these roaches are drawn over by the scent of blood !
: ZAFT is sending us data on the Mimetic Beasts. Our weapons should be effective against them, so were to approach as we would a Vajra.
: Tsk its just one thing after the other !
: And we already had our hands full as it was. Damn, this is getting out of hand fast.
: Arthur, we need to cover our allies. Bring us into firing position well unravel the enemys formation with the Tannhäuser!
*The Minerva moves ahead.*
: Firing position, all clear! Tannhäuser engaged, targeting the dead center of the Mimetic Beast swarm!
: Captain, weve Mimetic Beasts moving towards the Minerva fast!
: Whats going on? Why did they all start gunning for us?!
: Your energy! Theyre being drawn to the energy spike from your cannon!
: The monsters are hungry !
: Evasive maneuvers, Arthur!
: I cant! Our energy outputs dropping after that last attack!
: Damn it, theyre going to sink the Minerva!
: Partys over, Mimetic Beasts!
You wont be running amuck with me around, Mimetic Beasts!
: Th-That attack was !
: The Great Mazinger! Tetsuya!
: Juns here, too!
: And weve come to back you up, Kabuto!
: Thats the Great Mazinger !
: Id heard the stories but, dang, this guy packs a wallop!
: Nice another awesome member for the team!
: Come and try your luck, Mimetic Beasts! Junius Seven wont fall not under the watch of the Great Hero, Great Mazinger!
: Thanks for your help, too! Now lets push forward and wrap this up!
Great Mazinger (Tetsuya Tsurugi)
Squad Bonus: Armor +150, Accuracy +5
Venus A (Jun Honoo)
Support Attack L1
Squad Bonus: Exp +10%, Accuracy +5
Tetsuyas Kouji 2.0, with the Great Mazinger being a whole lot better than the regular Mazinger Z (especially in range). Better yet, the two of them have their traditional Double Burning Fire combined attack which packs a mighty punch with Mazin Power on its side.
Juns also better than Sayaka in pretty much every way except her spirit list: Sayakas 100% support-oriented, while Jun mixes a bit of offense with that. All in all, it depends on what youre after but the Venus A is still a bit on the frail side (at least Jun learns Iron Wall at 24).
But well have Tetsuya and Talia pull back to draw the Mimetic Beasts closer to our main group. While thats going on, well wrap up the extremists.
: Chairman Zala was brought down because his was the wrong path why do you not see that? What we need now is
: I refuse to accept your pious hope as the right path!
Sato: If youre with ZAFT, then you should understand our ideals!
: Weve got the Darius, Mimetic Beasts and a bunch of other insane guys walking around!
: I know everyone has a point to make but what the hell would dropping this thing on Earth accomplish?!
: But it must be done for the restless souls that lie within! Our defeated, tormented countrymen cannot and will not grieve in silence any longer!
Heres the Impulses strongest weapon.
: Damn these whelps !
: Youre from the PLANTs, arent you? Why Why are you trying to do something like this?!
: How can you forget the grief of all the lives lost by the atrocity committed here? How can you embrace this world of lies and laugh alongside those who pulled the trigger?!
: ZAFT has been led astray by the Peacecraft girl and the followers of the coward Clyne!
: The only right path for us Coordinators is the one shown us by Patrick Zala! Why do you not see that?!
: Quinze Dekim Our fellow revolutionaries may have been defeated, but our ideals will still BURN the Naturals!!
: They want to kill all Naturals ?!
: The hell are you on about, guy? What Quinze and Dekim wanted was
: Easy, Dearka. Just let him rant.
: The fall of Junius Seven can no longer be stopped! Youll watch as the Naturals answer for their karma! I, too, will be watching GWAAAAAARGH!!
: This this is what my fathers words brought about
Athrun also had words for Sato, of course, but I discovered only too late that I people were stuck atop the Meteor Breakers once they stepped in:
: Stop this! What Patrick Zala wanted, the world he wanted was
: And what the hell would you know about Patrick Zala?!
: I I !
LOTUS starts inching eastern, Ichitaka, Yamashita, Kouji and Daiya all but eradicating the western front.
And there it goes.
Couple of kills to Luna and Heine gets Kouji and Athrun over 130 morale.
The teams waifu needs to get to the top!
Yzak and Klans team wrecks another team, one GINN goes to Luca
And this ones just in range for Kenichi to use his strongest move!
Kenichi learns Prevail L4 from that.
And there go all but one of the extremist groups, destroying themselves against our superior firepower. The Mimetic Beasts are still far.
The Gundam thieves enter the area, transmitting the big battle over to their commander, Neo. He sees more than just ZAFT fighting up ahead problematic, considering Earthll be as good as dead if Junius Seven isnt destroyed in a hurry.
Stings a bit miffed that theyd run into the Minerva again so soon after evading all their pursuers and, worse, that theyd find some Mimetic Beasts as a bonus. Stella doesnt like the things, thats for sure.
Neo ponders all this mess happening and wonders if its the whim of a particularly capricious God. Regardless, he wants the kids to continue observing from afar and to record as much as they can theyre not allowed to engage.
Sting confirms and calls Stella and Auel to retreat to a safer distance. Boooriiiing, Auel sighs.
Everyone else gets in position to intercept the beasties.
And Gohs their first pick appropriate.
Goh: Sorry, Mira!
Mira: Oh, Goh that attack was very avoidable!
When did the Mimetic Beasts evolve to have Windanium bodies?!
Get to it, Tetsuya
: Ill admit that youve got guts to not run from me. And now the Great Mazinger will give you your prize!
: We will save Earth from this mess!
This missions gone on for long enough but were in the home stretch. The Mimetic Beasts are too few in numbers and weve too many resources left for them to wear us down, so now we rain concentrated death on each of them.
About 80% of them die in this first round, the rest following in the next turn. Heres the summary:
Oh, and heres the very snazzy dynamic finish of Reijis strongest attack. I wager that blonde Reiji that showed up is important or is it just the standard my evil, so-very-destructive split personality: Darkheart that comes pre-loaded into all characters that look like Reiji?
And were done!
: No enemies left on radar!
: Howre the Meteor Breakers?!
: Weve enough up and ready to go. Now we just need to set them up to activate at the right time.
: Hurry! Drag your ass and we wont break the colony in time!
: Troops, get to work!
: Yes, sir!
: Great! We did it!
: Hell, yeah! Earths safe!
: No, its not!
: The debris is still too big! We needed to break it down a lot more to offset how close it got!
: Then Earths still going to be destroyed?!
: Junius Sevens on a downward angle and picking up speed! Itll enter the atmosphere soon!
: Times running out! All we can do now is to tear it apart with the Combattlers weapons!
: Thats right! Stand strong til the very last second!
: Lets do this, Mazinger Z!
: The debris not past the threshold yet, so keep going! You too, Ichitaka!
: I suppose weve no other options LOTUS will move to destroy Junius Seven directly!
: We just gotta go for broke now!
: Phrasing, ya dumdum! We want it to go broke!
: We should try and do whatever we can to salvage this, Cpt. Gladys.
: I agree, Cpt. Wilder. Arthur, ready the Tannhäuser!
: Lam, stand by!
: Roger. Macross Cannon energy charge!
: Itll be getting in the atmosphere soon! We gotta make it!
: Blow it straight to hell! Macross Cannon fire!!
: Breast Fire!!
: Thunder Break!
: Super Electromagnetic SPIIIN!!
: Voltes Bazooka!
: Heart! BREAKEEER!!
: Spin STOOOOOORM!
: Tear it down! Come on!!
*Craaaaaaash! Beep, beep!*
: Times up. All troops, pull back.
: Junius Sevens entering the atmosphere!
: Hold on the things still too big!
: Pull back immediately. Thats an order.
: Hrm, fine.
: Damn it, is this all we can do ?!
: All units have pulled back from Junius Sev Huh?!
: What is it?
: Ichitakas still down there!
: What the hell are you doing, Ichitaka?! Get outta there right now!
: I saw some MSs left in there theyre the Minervas, I think! Doesnt look like they can make it out!
: Theres a bit of time left, so I wanna help anyone I still can!
: A bit the debris crossing the threshold right now!
*At the Girty Lues bridge *
: OK, this should be enough footage. Not that we could have kept on monitoring for much longer, of course.
: Damn, this is real. Whats gonna happen to us and Earth now?
: Is Is everyone going to die?
: Hey, Neo ZAFT was trying to break Junius Seven, werent they? Shouldnt we have helped them?
