    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Togashi: You don't have to get all shy about it...
        Allen: You got something to say? Togashi: Nothing at all! You must be hearing things!
        Allen: Taku...

      • Shion: You're the 100-Series Realian, right?
        (100-Series looks at Shion's keychain hanging out of her jacket)
        Shion: You like U-kun?
        ( 100-Series nods her head)
        Shion: Really? Then you're like me. But you look like you have something on your mind.
        100-Series: I shouldn't be getting monitored right now.
        Shion: It's not on the monitor; it's written all over your face.
        100-Series: I'm a Realian that has been mass-produced for the sole purpose of combating the Gnosis. I do not have to think about anything other than the mission.
        Shion: There isn't a single person who only thinks about what's necessary. That goes for Realians also. That's what it means to have free will. I do this kind of stuff even if I don't need to. Here.
        (Gives the 100-Series U-kun)
        100-Series: But...
        Shion: I still have this.

      • Shion: Hi there. I'm from Vector.
        Realian Technician: Oh, Ms. Uzuki! Thanks for your help, as always.
        Shion: It's all right. I's like all the Realians to be in top shape.
        Realian Technician: We really don't have enough maintenance staff on duty, So we're not exactly running short on units with performance problems.
        Shion: Even humans will accumulate stress during long-term space voyages.

      • Allen: During that accident, KOS-MOS went out of control and many of her development researchers were killed. Chief Uzuki was there when it happened.
        Grey haired man: Yes, I heard that she lost her lover.
        Allen: The Cheif knows best, when it comes to KOS-MOS' potential and risks. All of her decisions are based on that knowledge. Let's trust her judgement.

      • Shion: Combat under restricted conditions while fitted with restraint gear. Target, an A.M.E.S. platoon. No restrictions on allowed weaponry. You can do this, right, KOS-MOS?
        KOS-MOS: No objections, Shion.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Louis Virgil is listed with the main cast in the credits of this episode (and episode 2).

      • KOS-MOS' testing is much different in the anime than in the game. KOS-MOS is the only fighter, and she has a strange set of restraints she wears. In addition, KOS-MOS uses X-Buster during the testing, and it is portrayed as a beam against the mechs. Originally, KOS-MOS did not use X-Buster until after the Cathedral Ship/before the Durandal, and it did not shoot energy out, but sucked the Gnosis in.

      • First appearances by Cheif Shion, Lieutenant Virgil, Lieutenant Andrew, Allen, 100 Observation unit, and KOS-MOS.
