"we?ve got 4 incoming!  What?re your orders?!"

Four? Damn... we're outnumbered. And how the heck did they sneak up on us?! Shit....

"Fletcher! See if you can get a comms back to the Brazil. We've been detected, and are under attack by Mk2 Sambas with unidentified stealth technology." Shan replied, as he took aim at the approaching Samba Mk2s. "Larson, break and engage. We're going to buy some time for Fletcher to send the message. Then let's try to link up with the rest."

Shan briefly noticed the different equipment carried by the 4th Black Samba, However, he didn't have time to think too much about it. Knowing the power of the Black Samba's, they were probably out numbered and outgunned. Shan transformed into Battloid mode, holding on to the new Anti-spiritia gunpod.

Taking aim at the nearest Black Samba, Shan fired off a Spiritia Buster missile as they came into range. Then started accelerating sideways, trying to maintain a distance with the Black Sambas. As he did so, he quickly fired off another volley of 7 MMs at the group, trying to distract them away from Fletcher.

Rinse and repeat. As Shan's VF sped away from the others, he fired off another Spiritia Buster, and another volley of 7MMs. Comeon.... i hope this works.


Actions:
1) Message/Comms
2) Transform into Battloid
3) Fire 1 Spiritia Buster missile at nearest Black Samba Mk2 (Designate C-1?*)
4) Accelerating sideways and around the approaching group of Black Sambas, trying to maintain distance.
5) Fire 7 MMs at C-1
6) Fire 1 Spiritia Buster at C-1
7) Fire another volley of 7 MMs at C-1
8-9) Reserved for evasive/dodge/maintain distance from the Black Sambas.

* - Since there's 3 groups of Black Sambas, i'm using C for the 3rd group, and 1 for the first target in the group. :P The others would be C-2, C-3 and C-4. :D

OOC: Shan is trying to stay away from the Black Sambas, like a boxer circling his opponent. :P
It's a Conspiracy! The Government controls the weather!

Never a quiet mission. So much things where going on that it was getting difficult to keep track of it all. Everything happened so fast. Her SES-packs gone, the decloaked Sambas and their sudden surprise attack. Only good thing was that these extraordinary things happened so fast Mjuiri had no other choice but to focus fully on how to deal with hem and saving any musings over what and how things happend for later.

As the Sambas spread out and away from them Mjuiri's instinctual reaction was to give chase and put pressure on them. unfortunately the Sambas wasn't about to let that happen and made sure to cover their manoeuvres with large missile volleys, forcing her to focus on staying alive more then putting pressure on them.

Firing away volleys of her own to counter the incoming missiles she prepared to dodge whatever remained locked on to her.

"Spirita wizzies, try to disrupt them or their shields. Everyone take down their shields before you tear into them!" She yelled over the comms as she maneuvered for her own attack. She made a point of keeping herself moving so as not to be an easy target. She tried to take care in not moving too far from her squadmates however and her spirita specialist in particular in case he would need to be defended while he did... whatever it was those people did.

Actions(Battloid or so I assume from the GM-post):
1) Activate PPB (Or save for a parry or dodge f this is already on)
2) 2 volleys of 4 micro missiles at the two incoming volleys closest to her
3) Dodge / Use 2 Chaff/Flare
4) 40r gunpod burst at closest Samba
5) 2 volleys of 4 micro missiles at the two nearest Sambas
6) Dodge
7) 2 spirita missiles at closest Samba
8) 100r gunpod burst at closest Samba (ONLY if spirita missiles hit and seem to have taken care of the shield Otherwise 2 more spirita missiles;) )
9) Dodge

Free) Any dodge or parry I can get away with.

"Spiritia wizzies, try to disrupt them or their shields. Everyone take down their shields before you tear into them!"

That was a direct order, and the one he had waited to. With a big smile on his face, he press the flickering play button on his console, activating his SES in the same time. The rock music began to fill all the ears in the sector as the Spirita Emiter fillaly do their job, making the electric guitar and the drum alive like a rock show.

"Oh Yeah! I was ready for that! Levi, get into the tempo! Listen to that, buckelhead, Vous m'en direz des nouvelles!!!"

The pilot quickly dispose of the missiles lunched on him by a few manoeuver, some flares and a well placed flurry of bullet from his GU-17s Gun pod. Then, he sing with all the energy and passion he can.

(Fire bomber - Totsugeki love heart)

"LET'S GO!  Tsukinuke you ze yume de mita yoake ni
Mada mada tooi kedo
Maybe dou ni ka naru no sa, Ai ga areba itsudatte

Ore no utau o kikeba
Kantan na koto sa
Futatsu no heart cross saseru nante"

While he sing, he saw that one of the Samba was near him, so he put some missiles in the way, just to show him where the stage of the show was.


Actions:

Free: Fire 1 set of flares
1: 1 long burst of gun pod on the missiles who had not been distracted by the flares
2: Dodge
3: Dodge / Comm
4: Sing / Using Spiritia to concentrate energy for a Spirita Blast
5: Dodge / activate PBB
6: Fire 7 Dogfight missiles + 1 Spiritia missile on Samba C-3
7: Sing Louder :)
8: Dodge

This is not my lucky day  Slamming his throttle forward to get himself some maneuvering speed, Zed sets himself to dodging the incoming missiles while trying to target the lead clusters.  How many f-ing missiles?  Damn!  Selecting his micro maneuvering missiles, he fires off a salvo of seven and quickly targets the next batch heading towards him.  One more, then gotta drop chaff.  Squeezing of another set of seven micro missiles, Zed pulls away from the Black Samba group targeting his flight and drops countermeasures.  Dodging around and releasing a second set of countermeasures, Zed lines himself up for an attack run on the nearest Black Samba.  "Let's see what you got!" Zed says to no one in particular (not over coms) as he fires off a spiritia buster missile and switches to battlroid mode.

Actions
1.) Manuever/Dodge/increase throttle to gain manuevring ability/room
2.) Target a cluster of incoming missiles(targeting Zed) and fire 7 Bifors High Maneuverability missiles
3.) Target a second cluster of incoming missiles (targeting Zed) and fire 7 more BHM missiles
4.) Dodge/drop countermeasures
5.) Dodge/drop countermeasures
6.) Maneuver to engage closest Black Samba aggressor
7.) Fire one spiritia buster missile at targeted Black Samba
8.) Switch to Battlroid mode

2050.04.15 Friday, Afternoon
Rogue Planet ? Orbit

Flight 1

Musical erupts in the area.  The good vibes not only being heard through speakers but felt, as positive spiritia energy begins saturating the area.

Major Kavryn?s first volley of 4 dogfight missiles explode in the most optimal positions inside the incoming cloud of dogfight missiles.  The explosions vaporize a large swath of them, and the shockwaves scatter some of the other missiles outwards, eventually causing them to explode as well.  Their shockwaves, being shaped and forced further outwards, and into the other 3 clouds of missiles aimed at her wing mates.  10 of the missiles fired at Hemingway, 22 of those fired at T?tul, and 10 of those fired at Dempsey are also destroyed!  Such is the power of a natural 20.

1st Lt. Dempsey releases a set of flares.  He is surprised by a massive explosion from the Major?s direction, followed by smaller secondary groups of explosions in the clouds of missiles aimed at him and his two wing mates!  His flares cause 12 of the remaining 28 missiles to explode, and another 13 to lose track of Dempsey.  He destroys the 3 remaining missiles with a long burst.

Hemmingway shoots and avoids the 28 missiles continuing towards her, and so too does T?tul with the 16 at him.

Kavryn follows up with a 40 r burst that does little more than ricochet off of the spiritia shield surrounding the Mk II.

Dempsey builds up spiritia energy for a blast.

T?tul and Hemmingway take the occasional pot shots at the Mk II, but are neither effective, nor hit by counterattacks.  It?s almost as if their levels are equally matched with the Mk II.

Kavryn fires another volley of 8 dogfight missiles to test the Mk II?s resolve.  The Mk II neatly avoids all of them.

Demspey releases the built up spiritia energy in a powerful, directed attack that hits 3 of the Mk II.  The spiritia shields around the Mk II attacking him and Hemmingway are stripped away, and the shield around the one after T?tul is partially depleted.

Instead of pressing an attack against Kavryn, the Black Samba Mk II pauses, and takes stock of Dempsey?s continuing actions and the havoc it is wrecking among its wing mates.  Kavryn takes advantage of its distraction with a volley of 2 spiritia missiles that explode moments after being launched.  The ensuing explosion dazes her for 1 action.  Such is the trouble caused by a natural 1.

Hemmingway continues singing and building up another charge of spiritia energy, as the Mk II facing him pauses and looks startled as it examines itself and appears to be looking for its now-missing spiritia shield.

The Mk II whips its head back to Kavryn in response to the spiritia explosion.  It pauses again, startled at Kavryn?s bizarre action.  Kavryn shakes off the effects of the spiritia explosion.  She feels extremely weak and tired (-3 actions per melee for the next 3 minutes.)

Dempsey releases another spiritia blast that strips the shields off of the two Mk IIs that still have them.

Kavryn, struggling in her extremely weakened state, squeezes the trigger with all her remaining might, and releases a 100 r burst at the Mk II in front of her.  It, being partially distracted by Dempsey?s attack, fails to dodge, and eats 650 MB of damage.  There?s not much left aside from chunks of armour that look like Swiss cheese.  Smaller pieces slowly drift away along with a clear light green coloured liquid or gel that quickly freezes.

Dempsey fires 7 dogfight missiles at the obviously confused Mk II approaching him.  It fails to dodge, and eats 560 MD.  There?s not much left of it either.

The remaining 2 Black Samba Mk II immediately disengage, fire their engines to a blaze, and retreat as fast as they can.

Dempsey continues singing and building up for another release of spiritia energy.


Flight 2
"Oh Yeah! I was ready for that! Levi, get into the tempo! Listen to that, buckelhead, Vous m'en direz des nouvelles!!!"

Levi shouts back a reply, ?right on!  Let?s rock!?  The good vibes not only being heard through speakers, but felt, as positive spiritia energy begins saturating the area.  The Black Samba Mk II seem to slightly slow down behind the clouds of missiles and swivel their heads, taking in the waves of spiritia energy now flooding the area.

Pulling hard on the HOTAS, Captain Cassel manages to avoid 25 of the incoming missiles.  The remaining 13 hit and explode.  Luckily it was all along the side of his VF opposite the cockpit and towards the rear.  As his VF crumples and flies apart, the cockpit section automatically ejects.  Due to the rough jarring impacts of the multiple explosions, Cassel is knocked unconscious.

Levi and Jung are much more successful in avoiding the missile clouds fired at them, having used flares to compliment their dodges.  Jung makes a few well aimed shots that are easily deflected by the spiritia shields around the Black Sambas.

Levi spots what happened to Cassel, and screams out something incomprehensible which sends an unbelievably powerful spiritia oscillation wave streaming from the thing in his throat.  The 4 Black Samba Mk II in their immediate area are batted around like leaves in a strong wind.  Their spiritia shields are almost instantly whittled away.  At the end of the barrage, they are left dazed and confused.  Even Jung gets a strong headache from the unleashed energy.

For his part, Levi loses his voice and passes out from over exertion.  His VF-11D Kai, being piloted by an advanced AI, keeps moving and acting defensively.  The quartet of Mk II regain their senses, and detect what has happened to their fellows attacking Kavryn?s flight, and opt to retreat.

Jung moves in and rescues Cassel?s ejected pod.  Cassel has recovered consciousness due to the infusion of energy by Levi, but he too has a strong, splitting headache.  Everything he sees is in a virtual white-out, as his spiritia enhanced eyesight is momentarily infused with energy.


Flight 3
?Uh? what?s a Mk 2 Samba?? comes Fletcher?s reply to Shan.  ?The only way we can communicate with the Brazil is to fold back.  Do you want me to fold back, sir??

Larson is more understanding with his response.  ?Sir, yes, sir!? he barks out, obvious joy in his voice.

The Black Samba Mk II are still some kilometres away.  The one Shan fires at easily avoids the missiles he fires at it.  Just as the Black Samba Mk II are nearing gun pod range, they suddenly break formation and rocket away towards the fortress.


Flights 1, 2, and 3

Before anyone moves to begin chase, the Black Samba Mk II have disappeared.  It?s unclear if they are out of sensor range, hiding behind something, or once more hidden in the spiritia powered uber active stealth field.

The fortress is quiet and unchanged from the time they first observed it, and there?s nothing on sensors or in view by the spiritia sensitives; even the faint energy ribbons are gone.

T?tul is the first to speak.  ?BEEP yeah!  That?s BEEP showing the BEEP who?s BEEP boss!  Next time you BEEP want to BEEP mess with the BEEP UN Spacy, BEEP remember who not only BEEP showed you dumb BEEP your BEEP, but BEEP ripped it BEEP off of your BEEP BEEP and BEEP gave it to you!?

Jung is next.  ?Cassel was shot down, and I think Levi?s injured.  I can?t raise him and his heat signature is dimmer than usual and getting more dim!?

Ow, what the hell?  It takes Zed a moment to full grasp what just happened, and some details are a little fuzzy.  Yeah, not my lucky day at all.  He looks around his cockpit escape pod, trying to get a view of what's happening.  He rubs at his eyes, or tries to but can't because of his helmet. and begins to panic.  I can't see!  I CAN"T SEE!  "Oh god," escapes his lips.  Don't panic.  Don't panic.  Everything's bright.  It can't be blindness.  It'll go away.  It'll go away.

OOC: One nat 20 and one nat 1? Geez, why setle for anything but the extremes  :roll:

BIC:
Mjuiri could hardly believe the effort it took her to perform such a basic task as pressing a trigger. Luckily for her their spirita specialists had finally proved themselves truly usefull and there was no doubt in her mind that she had them to thank for her life. In her oddly groggy state she could do nothing but watch as the Sambas turned tail and ran, obviously scared by having their apparent immortality ripped from them.

T'tul's cry of joy if that was what it was, Mjuiri wasn't sure what it was but "joy" seemed close enough, and Jung's subsequent report of possible casualties just barely struggled past the thick haze that seemed to have wrapped itself like a blanket around her mind.

That is two out of three disabled, I think. Mjuiri's thought moved in slowmotion. That new guy can't get them both back. Someone have to help him. It a few seconds for her to link that final thought to an action, but when she did Mjuiri went on the comms. "Flight... uh.. Shan, move your flight to assist" the transmission was interrupted by a stiffled yawn. "... flight 2. Everyone gather at xxx,yyy,zzz for fold back to the uh the ship."

She opened up her visor and rubbed her eyes, the odd grogginess seemed to lighten somewhat and it finally hit her who had been shot down. "Flight 2 clarify on Cassel's condition! Was the pod ejected? Is he alive?" The grogginess was definitely letting up, and she was even able to make a mental note to be sure to detail the effects of a spirita detonation in her report once they all got back.

Vick didn't even belived what his has just saw. Sure, he has practiced long with Madona Squadron and use Spiritia again't alll sort of enemy, even if he didn't do many battle, but it was usualy Zentradi or Varuta. If the effect where distractfull on them, it was never that powerfull. Sure, it was good to get all the enemy go back to our side, but they where 6 VF-11 Kai in a fleet battle, so something like that never happen. Here, a small group of specialist, and they where alone again'st some of the most powerfull Spiritia using force, and he neutralised their more powerfull use of the Spiritia, all alone! And he even be able to destroy one!

It was obvious that was the power of the Spirita like it was call by the scientists: The Full Power of the Crucial Moment. FPCM was seen and theorised by Doctor Chiba During the Macross 7 war, but Vick never experienced it. That was Fantastic! He nearly missed the Refrain in astonishment. Aquick look show that Levi dome better than him in only a note. He was so much experienced that everyone he could have seen, and he hoped that one day they could do better togheter.

Dempsey overheard while signing that some of the squadron where hurt, so he sing for them.


"Yozora o kakeru no love heart, Moeru omoi o nosete
Kanashimi to nikushimi to, uchiotoshiteyuke
Omae no mune ni mo love heart, Massugu uketomete destiny
Nanioku kohnen no anata e, Totsugeki love heart!!!"


Actions:

1: Change to Gerwalk mode
2: Sing / Using Spiritia Power to help the Squadron felling better
3: Fly arroud the group
4: Sing / Using Spiritia Power to help the Squadron heal
5: Fly arroud the group
6: Sing / Using Spiritia Power to help the Squadron regain consciousness
7-8: Active radar scan

2050.04.15 Friday, Afternoon
Rogue Planet ? Orbit

Everyone responds to Kavryn?s orders by doing them, and not replying; as per protocol.  Jung clarifies, ?Cassel is? heat imaging shows me movement.  I can?t determine if he?s injured or not.?

Cassel?s sight begins to return.  He can make out some light grey amongst all the white; especially if he looks out the canopy at space.  As Dempsey gets closer to him, his eyesight restores at a slightly quicker rate.  Instead of light grey on white, he now has dark grey (space), and light grey; the interior of the cockpit.  He can make out the basic shapes of things in there.

Levi is still unconscious, though it looks like he?s stabilizing or has been stabilized by Dempsey?s spiritia activities.

Nothing shows up on Dempsey?s active radar.  The area is as silent as it was before the attack.



Roughly 250 to 300 Km away, something massive comes out of Super Dimension space and defolds.  It immediately starts shooting.

It takes a moment for the brightness to clear out of everyone?s eyes, and another moment before everyone realizes that the ship that just defolded isn?t firing at them, but at the Fortress.

Another second or two passes as the pilots zoom in on the ship, and they realize that it?s the CV-566 Brazil!  It?s already fired eight reaction missiles at the station, and is firing a continuous barrage of energy from it?s handful of anti-ship cannons.

Commander Yoshimoto appears on everyone?s screens.  ?Get back to the ship double-time!*  Tell me the weak points of the Fortress that you?ve observed!

The first shots from the carrier?s guns near the Fortress.  In a spectacular fireworks display, they are deflected and possibly absorbed by some kind of invisible shield or PPB around the Fortress.  It?ll take another half a minute or so for the reaction missiles to hit.



*Everyone knows that the Brazil is a carrier, not designed for sustained fleet engagements.  The longer the ship is in the area, the more likely their escape ride will be shot down.

OOC: moving the game forward a bit.  Yup, I?m excited for things to come, and figure that you all can play any reactions to the preceding post in the response to this post.  ;)

The Black Wraiths return to the CV-566 Brazil.  It?s fired another volley of the humongous ant?-ship sized reaction missiles at the Fortress, along with continuing fire from the anti-ship cannons.

Just as the Black Wraiths are coming in to land, the first volley of reaction missiles hit.  The redness in the area is turned into a more normal looking white, which is blindingly bright, being reflected off of the rogue planet and the surface of the ship.  Graceful arcing shockwaves can be seen gently flung out from the giant blindingly bright orbs that mark the explosions.  Given the actual speed of those shockwaves, they provide a good size reference for the Fortress, and the scale is mind boggling.  It?s definitely similar in size to Boldolza?s Fortress (SDF:M version, not DYRL.)

Just as their VFs are being taken within the ship by the elevators, the brightness of the explosions fade.  The fortress is completely unscathed.  A few very faint pin prick sized white dots form on it?s surface, and leap out, destroying the 2nd and 3rd waves of reaction missiles in significantly smaller and less bright explosions.

As soon as the outer hatches are closed, the ship begins moving violently, as it performs avoidance manoeuvres.  So far, it hasn?t been hit.

Commander Yoshimoto appears on their screens once more.  ?We deployed VFs via fold booster to monitor activity at the Fortress at daily intervals for the preceding 2 weeks.  The fortress was active until approximately 3 days ago, about the same time that we started our journey here.  It?s been silent since then.

We folded here, as we just received a super dimension space communiqu? that New Patagonia has been destroyed by the sector seven space pirates!  We?ve been ordered to head there ASAP!

We?ve only got a short window to attempt to damage the fortress as much as our arsenal allows, or to see what defences they have in store for next time.  Hold on, it?s going to be bumpy until we fold.  I want reports from all of you on my desk by the time we fold!?

The ship shudders violently, and power briefly flickers out.  It was an impact of some kind and it looks like the ship?s PPB absorbed it.  Battle stations klaxons fill their ears as they open their cockpits.  Along with the steadily rising hum of the fold generators building up for an emergency fold.

As her vision cleared and the order came for them to return to ship there was little else to do but comply. She did however take special care to make sure every last one of her squadmates where brought along. No one where to be left behind.

From within the ship they had little knowledge of wat was going on outside, but Commander Yoshimoto soon contacted them to fill them in on the details. "<...> I want reports from all of you on my desk by the time we fold!"

"Commander, the only bit of information we can offer is that there are Samba's here, with advanced cloakfields. The only possible weakness I can offer is that our spirita specialists have reported some sort of spirita reaction from within the core of the fortress. Apparently a very powerful one. And get a medical team down here, we have one riding an escape pod, condition unknown."

Mjuiri hardly noticed the rocking of the ship and the flickering lights as she hurried to exit her craft. Soon as she was free from her cocpit she hurried towards Cassel's escape pod. "Stay together, and be prepared. Nothing is certain until we fold away." Mjuiri transmitted to the rest of the BW's over the suits comm as she moved towards Cassel's pod. Reports on your desk by fold? Screw that!

Zed sighed and concentrated on breathing and digesting the information around him.  There was little else he could do, even as Commander Yoshimoto demanded reports.  His vision seemed to finally be clear, though his head still ached.  Finally judging that his pod was fully secure, Zed popped the seals and achingly pulled himself out.  He stops to look it over as he pops his helmet, completely unaware of Mjuiri moving up behind him.  How many more chances do I get?

Half running through the hanger looking left and right as not to run into something or be ran into by something, Mjuiri didn't notice Zed had got out of his pod until he was already out, seemingly inspecting his pod.

Seeing him alive and well enough to atleast move around was a huge relief to her, and she stopped to just breath out. Thank the spirits he is alright She was too relived to even be bothered by how praising spirits reminded her of her Zola and her past there. She didn't know wether she wanted to smack him for not worrying her or hug him for being alive. Her squadronmates made the choice for her though, by simply being present. She would have to go with a third option.

"Zed? Are you alright?" She carefully put a hand on his shoulder masking affection with worry for someone potentially wounded.

Only slightly startled by Mjuiri's hand on his shoulder, he turned and smiled to her before wrapping his arms around her, lifting her up, and kissing her deeply in front of everyone.  Aside from the sounds of hustle and bustle in a red alert, the sound of his helmet crashing to the ground seems to echo through a vacuum of shocked silence for onlookers.  Setting Mjuiri gently down, Zed closes his eyes and sighs before responding.  "Yes, yes I am.  And glad to be alive."  He bends down to pick up the dropped helmet and sheepishly scratches the back of his head as he looks past Mjuiri towards the other pilots.  "You guys all ok?"  A lobsided grin graces his fast and he bends down to kiss Mjuiri on the forehead before grabbing her arm in his and dragging her back to the other pilots.

Once feeling assured that everyone in the squad was alright, worry began to set in inside of Zed.  Last I'd heard the M-15 fleet had put in for repairs at New Patagonia.  I can't have just gotten them back only to have them taken away from me.  Gotta find out as soon as I can.  Christ, gotta focus.  I just kissed Mjuiri in front of everyone.  If I'm not already in deep **** for losing my fighter, that's going to seal it.  Zed stops walking as his thoughts return to the dire situation he and his crew are in.  No impact on the fortress.  I'd never seen anything so big in my life.  We're going to need some kind of reaction missile yield sized spiritia weapon to take that on.  Only thing that might work.  New Patagonia was heavily defended and they didn't stand a chance against the SSP.  What are we going to do?

Vick lands his Gerwalk VF-22 in the hangar, with the others, and when it was safe to, he open his canope and raise up in his cockpit, stretching his arms and legs with a smile on his face: His first battle, and already one kill, and what a kill!!! A Black Samba! but that model seemed different from the one he saw in trainning; Maybe a weaker, older model seeing from the facility the squadron dispatch them.

The Squadron leader, M'juiri was one of the first to get out of her ship and to look if every one was okay.

"Stay together, and be prepared. Nothing is certain until we fold away."

"Aye-aye, Maam."

Vick set down again on his seat and remove his helmet, getting a quick self-test of his fighter. A few seconds later, He catch, with a blink of his eye, Zed kiss M'Juiri... Vick smiled as he now realise one of the little secrets of the squad. Zed Was lucky: The Zolan girls looked very cute. He sing not too loud, just enouph so that they can hear:

"Nanioku kohnen no anata e, Totsugeki Love Heart..."

Zed's looked a bit shy, and looked on the others pilots:

"You guys all ok?"

"Yup... Maybe not as much than you..."

after a couple of laughs, the atmosphere seems a bit more serious.

"Did you guys see anything at all that might have indicated what those variant Sambas were?  We need to find a weakness to the SSP or we're toast."

"Well... Is it just me or that seems a bit easy? I mean: maybe the only big thing on these model is their stealth mode, cause if i remember correctly, in trainning, the other model of Black Samba where MUCH more touph to stop... We were a nearly one-on-one fight, and if i remember correctly, last time you got a black samba, you where four agains't him. If Levi and I was all that make the difference in that combat, we know what New Pantagonia need: SoundForce and JammingBirds."
"You know you got a Good Variable Fighter when you have so much weapons that you don't have enought fingers to press all the triggers in same time!"
