THE DESTINY OF HAPPINESS
I can't do anything under such tight security.
And the nearest base where I can steal a cargo plane is on the other side
of the desert.
With enemy scout planes flying over every 5 minutes, no one can do
anything out here.
A heavy sandstorm is approaching.
We'll cross the desert when it hits.
Do you want to go with me?
I'll leave it up to you.
I'm too emotionally drained to think right now I need time to think
everything over, too.
We've recovered as many pieces as possible, but it seems to have been
I'm sure it is.
Even the Gundam can eventually become just a piece of scrap metal.
Well, a piece of Gundanium alloy, actually.
This Mobile Suit is a derivative of Tallgeese.
In other words, the technologies used for Tallgeese are basically
applicable to this machine too.
Noin, would you mind if I took this Gundam to Lake Victoria Base?
Are you going to try to fix it?
Perhaps that young pilot made me do it.
But the Gundam pilot died in the explosion, didn't he?
I don't feel it though.
I know no one could have survived that massive explosion.
But I wish he had survived it.
As another soldier who pilots Mobile Suits, I wish he had survived so he
could come back for a rematch.
I'm truly sorry Your Excellency Treize.
I was completely out of line to single-handedly order the destruction of
Well, everything's alright now.
At least we know now that those Gundams belong to only a handful of
Remember, at this point, our only enemies are the Gundams.
But those who have been supporting the Gundams are still unknown.
Certain colonies have...
I don't want them to become even more powerful.
Can you handle this matter, Lady Une?
I will not disappoint you this time, Sir!
That majority of doves in the colonies really hate anything associated
with a military presence.
You should loosen yourself up from now on.
Go to Moscow and announce that you'll be going into space.
Moscow is a city with strange inhabitants who are generally supportive of
They'll be your help.
Is there any radar response?
That'd be the least reliable information.
Just stay alert.
What a sandstorm!
I can't see anything.
Is there anything out there?
There's a military base that belongs to a neutral country.
They should have no problem sheltering us for a while.
A military base?
The coast is clear.
Same here, too.
An underground base?
This is a military base of Maguanarc, our homeland.
Welcome back, Quatre-kun.
It's been a long time Commander Sadaal.
I've been following your brilliant achievements all this time.
It's all thanks to the Maguanarc Fighters.
Thank you for all the help.
Everyone helped you voluntarily because we all support your honorable
cause If we had been more helpful, we would've dealt more damage to OZ.
That damn OZ!
Taking the colonies as hostage?
Nothing else could be so cold blooded!
It was a flaw in our strategy We weren't careful enough.
It's our fault. Don't say that, Quatre-kun No one can blame you.
Now, come over here.
Quatre-sama, we'll leave and let them maintain the Mobile Suits, Alright,
La Sheed, our guest's...
I'll make sure that both Gundam units will be well maintained.
Is that alright?
Thanks a lot.
I haven't introduced myself My name is Quatre Raberba Winner.
So you must be the son of the Winners, the wealthiest and most
influential family in the Arab nations!
No wonder you have such a connection to these guys.
The Winners are peace loving people.
It's more than likely that I'll be disowned by my father.
Everyone has his own story...
He runs, he hides, he does everything?
But he never lies.
So the rumors about the colonies having sent Mobile Suits to Earth...
Indeed, a Handful of colony Mobile Suits have been engaging in a series
of sabotage acts against us.
But OZ has already gained the upper hand over them.
It won't take us long to crack down on all the rebels.
A rose doesn't suit your nature.
Excuse me, Ma'am, but do you have an invitation?
I'm sorry, Ma'am, but tonight we are hosting a reception for specially
invited guests only.
Then, do you know the host?
Glad you could make it!
I'm terribly sorry.
I didn't know the lady was a guest of Marquis-sama.
Now, shall we go inside, Relena?
The party's about to start.
Don't be embarrassed.
This establishment is for elderly people like myself.
A young, beautiful lady like you naturally draws everyone's attention.
Marquis Welitz, what a charming date you have tonight.
My name is Relena.
May I have a dance with you?
I'm first in line.
May I have the honor of tonight's first dance with you, if you don't
If I don't mind...?
Please, I'd be honored.
I'd be glad to.
Security guards, positioned in the front.
Positioning at all other entrances complete.
Air traffic has been cleared.
You do possess a trace of the Peacecrafts.
Do you know the Peacecrafts?
Yes, I did.
The monarchs of the old Cinq Kingdom...
We were close family friends of the House of Peacecraft.
until the Kingdom was destroyed some 13 years ago.
What happened to the Peacecrafts?
It was an unfortunate tale.
There are always those who wish nothing but peace, and those who wish to
gain everything from war.
The House of Peacecraft was the former, and the World Federation was the
The dove was killed because it disagreed with the hawk...
These days, everyone tries to solve everything with arms.
And what is this OZ?!
I demanded Trieze show up tonight so I could confront him over what he's
But apparently he sent his representative here instead.
I'm just another guest.
Marquis Welitz invited me.
I'm a representative of his Excellency Treize.
I'd like to say hello to the host.
Roses don't go with military suits.
It's the kind of flower for a sweet lady like you, Relena.
I'm here tonight representing Trieze Krusherenada.
My name is Lady Une.
May I chat with you for a while?
Before that, if you don't mind, I would like my granddaughter to wear
What are you doing here?
Grandfather, I wouldn't look good with a red rose, either.
What would really make me look good is the red of OZ's bloodshed.
This is for my father!
Standing in your way is the only thing left I can do!
This is pale in comparison to that little girl's courage...
It looks like everyone supports her.
We'll go round the hall!
That's what's needed in this time of chaos.
She taught me a good lesson tonight.
Is everything clear?
Looks like a festival is going on.
It's a welcome party for all of us, the Maguanarc Fighters.
This country has been standing against the Federation for all these
The Maguanarc Fighters are the guardians of its freedom.
Ok, I'll come with you.
Hey, don't push me!
Not guardians, rather heroes.
People are always together for a final victory.
That is the strength of this country.
The unity under a common goal shared by the whole nation so tightly...
How about us?
There's lots of things I want to talk about, Quatre...
Yes, I'd like that.
We'll have privacy here.
So, there are five.
The ones gathered at New Edwards base.
That was all of them.
I'm from a colony.
So am I .
Everyone is so much alike, the five of us.
The Mobile Suits the operation and the objective...
OZ is the one who destroyed the peaceful life in the colonies.
My mission is to get even with OZ.
And I was given that Mobile Suit.
Don't look back towards the colonies.
Just destroy them, before you are destroyed.
The same order, huh?
It'd be much better to die in a battle than to be dominated by OZ.
Only by believing that, have I been fighting all these days.
But I couldn't die.
And Heero did.
Just like that.
The colonies do not want war; therefore, the colonies must not be
Your friend was too noble.
I thought he was a bit smarter than that!
When Gundam moves the colonies will be in danger.
I don't know what I'll do then...
A lonely war without support from his people...
What a sad story.
Come back to headquarters immediately!
OZ Mobile Suits are approaching!
La Sheed, look at this!
It looks like a scout.
What should we do, La Sheed?
If we start a battle right here there will be enormous civilian
Stay alert, make sure all Mobile Suits are ready to be dispatched.
Is this some kind of festival?
A nomadic caravan stopped by so we're having a little party.
And what can I do for you?
We need to rest.
May we request for some food water and a temporary stay?
I'll see what I can do.
I'd appreciate that.
But, what heavy security!
We have information suggesting that the rebels may be hiding in this
It's just a precaution.
Ok, they're gone now Check those boxes.
How is it?
This is extremely dangerous.
Any tremor could activate the fuse.
La Sheed, what's happened?
Those damned OZ soldiers!
They left behind 20 boxes of high explosives!
If they are ordinary time-bombs we can remove them in time...
I don't think we can move them at all.
This probably means...
They're provoking us the Maguanarc Fighters.
They're all set to go off at midnight.
I guess they want a night battle with us.
So are they preparing for a battle after all?
Unless we surrender by midnight.
It's the Gundams that are causing all this.
They're after us!
This is very well planned.
They must have been suspicious about this town for a long time.
Everyone, listen to me!
OZ has found out about this place and are ready to make an attack on us.
We can no longer hide in this town.
Therefore, we're going to take the initiative and attack the enemy in the
desert tonight, while evacuating the civilians.
And, there is another honorably task: we will help the two Gundams escape
The Gundams are the true heroes from the colonies who are committed to
They can't join tonight's battle, but one day, they will return and
liberate us all!
Be proud of your participation in this glorious battle.
Everyone, take your places!
Enemy troops appearing!
They're coming in too fast!
I can't lock on!
We're not good at close combat!
Withdraw a little!
They're coming from the ground aim for the ground exit!
There isn't just one exit!
I've found them.
They're at the North side of the desert!
All kinds of cargo planes!
Occupy the area immediately!
The mountain area is clear of enemy soldiers.
Be sure to stay together!
You can go straight to the North side with this.
You did all this for me and I can do nothing to help you.
I wish I could do something...
The Gundams are always our heroes.
Please don't forget that.
I'm sure we'll work together again, in the future.
I've got yours, too!
I swear on those flowers, I will come back and fight for you.
Our work is over!
The coast is almost clear!
We'll head towards the mountain area.
Protect the civilians!
We don't want to disgrace the name of the honorable Maguanarc Fighters!
Clear the runway for Quatre-sama!
Maguanarc Fighters will stay at the front line!
Keep firing at the enemy!
Could you circle over the area just once?
I know we can't do much, but we have to do something, you know.
The operation is over!
Maguanarc Fighters, withdraw!
So long, Maguanarc...
Next time, we see you, we'll be united as solidly as you are.
There she is!
You little brat!
Let go of me!
Who is it?
I'll take custody of her.
This is a direct order from Lady Une.
I can't accept your offer, Lieutenant If orders are so important to you,
then this is a direct order from his Excellency, Trieze!
Don't be so reckless.
You're just like someone else I know.
You're an OZ officer, too.
I'm here to escort you, Relena Peacecraft-sama.
To be continued To win peace, to have to take up arms...
On the heartless battleground, Wufei meets Sally Po.
Weaklings should not fight said Wufei.
In the words of Wufei, Sally finds naive hesitancy in the lonely soldier.
With many doubts, Wufei goes to war with his Shenlong Gundam again.
