It starts at page 21 and it goes till page 516.

The misogyny train in this fine literature is fully booked and not stopping till it reaches the other station.
Women are only around as literal sex objects, towards the end it even describes an alarm voice as “attractive female” IT’S JUST A VOICE and finally the last sentence is of a naked woman.
Let’s not mention that Lala Sune and Kusko Al die for manpain and Amuro is the one that sends them to their grave because he can’t get a handle on his anger. Then the relationship with Char is just them pretty much hating each other because Amuro killed them.
THen their is Sayla Mass/Artesia Deikun that really doesn’t do much here but act as just a sexual outlet for Amuro who seems to love her but only so he can shove his dick in her. She’s humiliated on several occasions and called a bungler and finally at the end she pees herself twice because….. because wimmin or something. The text even goes on to describe how strong she is or something but she’s the only one doing it and no man does.
Finally at the end she swims naked into an ocean… for no real reason.
Sayla isn’t the only one to escape unharmed. Frau Bow has kids dumped onto her and then is pointedly forgotten.
Mirai is also constantly torn down by the creepy author gaze.
I see that I posted at page 188 about “He wanted her” and then again on page 245 again that “he wanted her”
Those are some creepy ass words. Even in Romance it’s kind of like. “Can you not treat people like possessions, especially women?”
I bet I even forgot some instances of “he wanted her”. No she never wants him either.

So what about the mecha and stuff. Mostly massive info dumps with a tiny bit of action going on. There really wasn’t a lot to dig into character wise unless it’s Amuro being a shitstain or Char being a shitstain or any of the other men being shitstains. So many shitstains this book needs some professional carpet cleaning.

If you like Gundam 0079 it’s best to just.. not read this book. Not only does it kill off the main character for… super telepathy message???? but it’s plain shit to the other characters.
