Regarding Grassley Defense Systems, Delling, and Shaddiq, my impression was that Delling ordered armed force against Vanadis without informing Sarius. During the attack on Folvangr while Delling is giving his speech, Sarius shows a shocked expression after an aide informs him of something (I presume the attack).
It seems to me that Delling, who is an executive working for Grassley at the time, may have used this successful attack to build his political power, bypassing Sarius in the process. So I think Shaddiq could play a more neutral role in the main story. But I could be mistaken due to my limited language skills.
Thank you again for the summary.
Maybe this story is like Victory mixed with 00, so to balance the grim event with an hopeful resolution.
This all sounds familiar but with a twist. The companies sound like the blocs from 00 but as a board, it sounds like Zaft or Gjallarhorn. The GUND-ARM system sounds like the bio-computer (peaceful technology used for war) but also like the AV system (how it links and affects the pilot). That white-haired girl sounds like Athrun or Klim with how she’s against her father. Also, the roles of earth and space are switched now or it seems like it.
I also want to note that the Council commited a witch hunt on Ox Earth.
The setting is an adult-oriented animation in which companies compete with each other, leading to war.
Personally, I think that the design and contents of mobile suits are similar to Gundam 00.
and I had the impression that it was drawn from a corporate point of view.
The coexistence of humans and machines, for example.
