After talking with him regarding the Argama, they decide to work together to steal the Zeta Gundam, though Judau and his friends want to just sell the mobile suit. At the port, Fa places Kamille in an ambulance and is about to leave when Judau and Yazan take her hostage. Shinta and Qum hide under the ambulance, and Judau searches the back and finds the vegetative Kamille. Kamille looks at him and holds out his hand, so Judau touches him and shares a strange Newtype experience with the comatose pilot. As they head for the Argama's dock, Yazan tells Judau they should have no trouble with the Argama's diminished crew. And despite being hardly armed with little more than vegetables and one Titan, Yazan proves to be right, as Judau is successfully able to steal the Zeta Gundam, but has trouble starting it up. But after Yazan kills Saegusa during the assault and reveals his true colors as a Titan, he activates the Zeta Gundam. Armed in only a Petite, Yazan attacks anyway, trying to get the Gundam himself. Unfortunately, Judau's control of the machine is poor, and they are forced into the colony. Abandoning the Petite as it is useless, Yazan boards a Middle mobile suit. Judau eventually pulls out a beam saber, but drops it, allowing Yazan to pick it up and gain the advantage, at least until Judau destroys the suit with forearm grenades and defeats Yazan. Afterwards, Bright is able to subdue the Zeta Gundam with a Petite and some wires, but Beecha and the rest of Judau's friends activate bombs. During this distraction, both Judau and Yazan manage to escape. In space, the Neo Zeon ship Endra sends a briefcase over to Shangri-La.|

Soon enough the two encounter Gottn and Chara, the latter revealing her plan: an encasing web of bombs. As Judau and Elle battle them he lets it slip that Leina is his sister, which gives Gottn the idea to use her as a hostage. Glemy refuses to do so, but accepts when he mistakenly believes Roux to be piloting the Mk II, and so brings Leina to the bridge. Gottn threatens Leina’s life unless Judau surrenders, distressing Judau, but before any action can be taken Beecha and Mondo detach the core base from the ZZ, accidentally disabling Mondo’s unit, and thus saving Leina, but wind up stuck on the Endra. With everything gone wrong, Chara orders a retreat before Leina can be rescued; Emary Ounce, captain of the La Vie en Rose, is impressed with the piloting skills of both Judau and Elle and reaffirms that both of them are strong Newtypes.

"Judō, Shutsugeki!!" (ジュドー、出撃!!)
|Kunihisa Sugishima||Akinori Endō||August 2, 1986|
|The episode starts with another voice over - Judau tells us that the Argama is now in orbit of the Earth, and could be attacked at any time. We also see something being delivered to the ship, Quattro Bajina's Ms - the Hyaku shiki (Type 100). Bright and Mika are talking, and Mika tells us that AEUG's high command have ordered that the Argama destroys the Sandra before it reaches Earth with its main cannon. Beecha and Mondo suggest a plan to Judau, which is to attach bombs all around the ZZ, so the enemy won't attack in fear of an explosion that may catch them as well, and he can get Leina back. However, when he goes to install the bombs, they laugh and tell each other they can't stand him being the hero all the time. On board the Sandra, Haman tells them to stop broadcasting Minovsky particles, that they should let the Argama come to its death. Various people are seen and Haman gives a speech to her men, then a dark-skinned man gets into an MS called the Dreissen, and goes to attack the Ahgama. The ZZ launches, and gets to the Sandra. Haman lets him aboard, and wants to personally take him to Leina. On the way she says that they're the same type of person, both Newtypes, but Judau isn't interested, and Haman tells him that Leina isn't there. She tries to convince Judau that they're not enemies, and partially succeeds while moving in to kiss him, until some guards come and interrupt.

Judau and co explore their new ship, while Bright meets with his superior; both Bright and the crew, who were eavesdropping, are shocked to hear that the gundam team is to be decommissioned and Bright is to command the Nahel Argama with a new, more “professional” crew. Judau, Bright, and the crew adamantly refuse this as they have been through everything together and have proven themselves capable, but their accomplishments are denounced, with Judau and his friends being labeled as mere children. At that moment the Argama’s old enemy, Mashymre Cello, along with his new ship and subordinate Illia Pazom attack. Illia leads the attack to destroy the new Argama in her ReGelg, so the Argama crew launches the Nahel Argama to draw fire away from the Rose. A direct hit to the ship causes Shinta, Qum, and some new pilots to be ejected from the ship, so Bright launches in a small vessel to save them while Judau launches in the ZZ to deal with Illia. Illia’s fast mobile suit allows her to outmaneuver Judau, however they begin to react to each other’s Newtype powers distracting her long enough for Judau to successfully execute a sneak attack. Illia survives and captures Judau’s but his unorthodox strategy mixed with the continuous reaction of their Newtype powers, allows him to stall her long enough for Elle in the Mk II to damage her suit, forcing a retreat with the rest of her units. Back on board the Nahel Argama, the crew realizes that Bright has been through enough, and let him (along with Shinta, Qum, and Haro) stay with the La Vie en Rose, and they head out to face Haman, with Bright, believing in their skill and strength, wishes them luck and farewell.|
