Dai Gu confirms that while he's looking for peaceful coexistence with the local people, the other high-ups in Fillmore just want to invade and take over the area. Political maneuverings in the back, particularly in regards to using Christine as a bargaining chip and getting foreign support for Fillmore's expansion into Nakakara. Back in Laan, Nio is a bad drunk while Ena talks about her successor since she's nearby. Funft tries to explain to Christine that she's liable to be treated as a broodmare on the value of her bloodline rather than spend her life fighting for the Empire as she assumes.

Which GTM is this? Is this the new Arcana Siren?

I really like the looks of this one. Almost like a MH. If he can re-tool some of the GTM's to look a bit more utilitarian like this one, then I think the designs will grow on me. But I still miss the classic MH's, so beautiful :(

My assumption is that the suffix letters on the new Sirens are still the same as the old (the numerical part appears to be a revision number), so it would be a national guard standard Siren rather than the heavy combat Arcana Siren. Presumably the arm spikes are a thematic evolution of the shoulder spikes on the old design.

Oh, I didn't notice the "A" after the katakana. Yeah, likely the old "Siren A". Incredible redesign. Makes me wonder what the point of the spikes behind the veils are (does Nagano still call them "veils"?)
