|“||What they lost...
...was the time they took for granted and the future they believed in.
When the land, diminishing into empty space, portrays the greatness...
...of what will never return, where will the youngsters try to go?
As they try to make sense of their feelings...
...the approaching reality ejects them from familiar territory.
And the darkness of battles found on the other side...
,...of the opening gate is endless, gloomy and deep.
Next, on Mobile Suit Gundam Seed...
Next episode: "Silent Run".
