When the Tenth Angel began its rampage, Mari hijacked Unit-02 in order to head out to fight Zeruel, activating Unit-02’s second best mode “The Beast”, thereby removing the unit’s restraints. In this mode, Mari successfully smashed through most of Zeruel’s multiple AT Fields, but was still unfortunately taken out by the Angel’s rapid extending blade-like arms.
It was then that Rei’s damaged Unit-00 emerged onto the battlefield and charged at Zeruel with an N² mine-armed missile. The battered Unit-02 tore through the Angel’s remaining AT Fields and Unit-00 threw Unit-02 out of the blast radius before the missile detonates.
Despite their combined effort, however, the missile failed to destroy Zeruel, and blew off Unit-00’s arms in the process.
Awesome cosplay pair from Comiket 77! Some parts of Mari’s suit looks really shiny, I wonder what it’s made of? Thanks again to Quince for sending this in!
