The episode starts with Tatsuya and his handler Alan working on the Exia that was teased a few episodes ago, with the kit now more complete from last time.
Can't wait to see this in action. Tatsuya's next opponent is a 78-Year old from the UK. That should be a neat fight. However, Ral meets up with the opponent as they're old friends but the opponent has a heart attack. OUCH.
After the intro, Sei's mom and China brings Sei & Reiji some Bento boxes as Aila pops in with a bathrobe on AND SKIPPING THIS SCENE BEFORE MY MIND GOES ELSEWHERE. After that scene, we get Reiji eating his words from promising Aila that she could stay with him at Sei's house as he mentions Arian again. Once he does, everyone laughs their butts off. After a while, Nils drops by and asks Reiji about the golden shower from last episode and Reiji says it was the gem on his wrist. Nils asks to borrow it because it may hold a part of the secret for the Plavsky Particles which Reiji obliges.
We cut to the hospital as Julian/the grandson of Tatsuya's opponent meets with Ral & his Grandpa on the hospital bed. Julian's grandpa hands him a box to use in his place at the tournament, but Julian quit Gunpla Battles even though his Grandpa is insisting on it as it may be his last wish for his grandson to do. After the grandpa collapses, Julian sits on a bench and opens the box, revealing a red Gundam F91. NICE! And Julian's Grandpa just faked the whole thing. Jerk.
Cutting to an Inn, Aila has told her story to both Sei's mom and China as they bawl their eyes out. WOW, I may get some tears but not as much as they're doing right now. Sei's mom gives Aila the OK to live at her house and tries to ship Aila with Reiji. DANG IT, SEI'S MOM! Does your shipping powers know no limits?! Meanwhile, Julian looks over the F91 and it's worn as hell. Luckily, Mao walks by and helps Julian with getting back into shape for the fight with Tatsuya. Nils walks by the room and notices the battle has ended with the Gundam X Maoh CUT IN HALF! How in the heck can the F91 do that? Tatsuya and Alan find out about the fighter change and Tatsuya says that they may lose the battle. If Tatsuya says that, YEAH, he's screwed. We then get backstory on Tatsuya's background with Julian that I can't do justice here. You'll have to see it for yourselves.
The GP bases and Gunpla are set. The fight begins. The Exia Tatsuya is using is called the Amazing Exia. Wow. Now I can't wait to see this thing turn into the Exia Dark-Matter. The F91 turns on the Afterimages and kicks Tatsuya's butt. Tatsuya then actually resigns as Meijin for now as he turns up the Bad-Ass and kicks the Exia right into Trans-Am mode. The battle is intense as Tatsuya slices the F91 down the middle as the victor of this battle.
After the end credits: Nils works on Reiji's gem through the night and sees that the gem is a Plavsky Particle Crystal. Neato. The preview for Episode 23 shows that during a festival called Gunpla Eve, Reiji & Sei will fight each other. NICE!
This episode was good in providing development for Tatsuya in discovering why he became the 3rd Meijin. Plus the fight was nice too; The F91's Afterimages VS the Trans-Am of the Amazing Exia.
