A long time ago,
humans staked their youth in the sea. In the seven seas, romance, ambition, adventures, and aspiration clashed
against fire. Now the youths in A.D. 2200… challenge the sea in the galaxy. There lies a world
far beyond our imagination. (ARMORED FLEET DAIRUGGER XV) Sky Rugger, combine! -All right! Now it’s Keets Team’s turn!
-Okay! Sky Rugger, combine! -Next, Walter Team!
-All right! Land Rugger, combine! All right, well done, everyone!
We’re one second faster than before. Morning practice ends here. Let’s return. All Ruggers, all off! (“THE ORDER FOR ASIMOV’S RETURN”) Commander Teles. What’s the matter, Security Chief? Yes! Actually, the imprisoned
Captain Lafitte… is requesting to meet
with Commander Teles. What would you like to do? Ignore him. There’s nothing we need to discuss. We’re currently
in an important meeting here. Don’t report
every single useless thing to me! Yes, sir. Please excuse me. What a brazen fellow. That Lafitte… Did he forget
that tried to rebel against us? Exactly. Normally, we would have executed him. Enough about him. Let’s continue with the meeting. About our planet survey plans… Please take a look at this,
Commander Teles. An unidentified object is
heading towards us at a great speed. What’s that? It seems like it warped over here. It’s a high-speed fleet from our garrison. The high-speed fleet… is requesting us to open the gates. Very well. Let them enter. I will welcome them, Commander. Lead them to the VIP room. Yes! Why is Galveston doing this now? Don’t tell me
it was because of the Barataria incident. But who told them? Captain Lafitte is still imprisoned
in his room. This means
there are other suspicious people here. I am Teles,
Commander of the Frontline Command. I am Ziegrone,
Captain of Galveston Military Police. I am here on the orders
of Supreme Commander Al Caponello. Thank you. Please come in. Captain, we have received
an emergency transmission… from the Galaxy Garrison Headquarters! I will now convey the decision
we made regarding you, Asimov. As of 6 p.m. today, you’re relieved of your duties
as the Ship Captain of the Rugger Guard. Have I made any mistakes,
Supreme Commander Dewa? No, it’s not that. To be specific, you must return to the Galaxy Garrison
Headquarters as my adviser. Is that so? You may be upset with this decision, but I would like you to accept it. I am counting on you. Yes, I understand, Supreme Commander. I see, so you accept it? Thank you, Asimov. With that said, we await your arrival. Captain. It’s been a while since we met. Father, Mother, Jimmy. I hope you guys are doing well. As I traveled in the galaxy, I was involved in dangerous situations
a few times, but now, it seems like we can… create the Star Map
with peace of mind now. It feels like my magic skills
have improved. Soon, I intend to join
Hollywood’s Magic Castle… as one of their members. Walter, just how far are you going? What? It’s you, Patty. It’s a dead end there. Shoot, I went too far. Well, I was re-reading my letter… to see if I made any spelling mistakes. You should submit it soon.
It’s almost the deadline! Oh, no, I’ll leave this to you then. To be able to send letters… It’s been a while. Yes. It’s all because
of our peaceful navigation. Aki Team, Walter Team, Keets Team. Please report to the Ship Captain’s room. Aki Team, Walter Team, Keets Team. Please report to the Ship Captain’s room. I wonder what this is about. Did you call for me? Enter. Jack Walter, entering. The reason why the three of you
were summoned… is that Captain Asimov… has been transferred back
to the Galaxy Garrison Headquarters. -What?
-What? What? Captain! It’s decided
that I will return to Earth at 6 p.m. Thank you all for everything. It was nothing! Right, Keets? We apologize for all the troubles
we may have caused. However, why with the sudden summoning? I’m not sure about the details either. In any case,
I will leave everything to you all. Also, Ise will be the new ship captain. What? I will be taking over
Captain Asimov’s position… and assume complete responsibility
for the entire ship, as well as the Galaxy Exploration project. In the future, I’d like all of you to take turns
in working at the bridge. Wait, we’ll work there? That’s right. I’m counting on you, Aki. Yes! Jack Walter. -Put teamwork above everything else.
-Yes! Miranda Keets. -I expect you to do your best as well.
-Please take care. We will have a farewell party
for the Captain at 4 p.m. Tell everyone to gather at that time. Yes! A joint effort in planet exploration? Yes. If we continue to stand
at opposing ends against Earth, it will be difficult
to achieve our objective. Then let me ask you this, Commander Teles. If we discovered a planet
that we want to obtain, do you think
that Earth will hand it over to us easily? As for that,
if we explain our circumstances… Aren’t you too naive, Commander? If they were to know
that our planet’s condition, we don’t know how they will react. We definitely cannot do that. If you continue with this attitude, you will be committing
a serious discipline violation. Are you fine with that? If nothing else, you must immediately inform Galveston… of the incidents
that have happened recently. Release all parties
involved in the rebellion, and let them return
to their original duties. That was also a message
from Supreme Commander Caponello. I understand. That is all I have to say. In any case, you must not waste time… while searching for a habitable planet. Otherwise, your father’s position
as the Minister of Internal Affairs… will be gravely affected. This is a summary
of Galveston’s situation. Look through it carefully later. Be reminded that you’re in no position… to speak about such naive thoughts. Officer, escort him out. Yes, sir. Father. You must understand my feelings. We should not fight over the planets
in the galaxy. We should learn
to understand one another instead. -However…
-Commander Teles. Just who told them
about the rebellion incident? Drake, in any case, release Lafitte. Have him in charge
of the Galaxy Exploration Project. To escape from Galveston’s surveillance, this is the only thing we can do. What a shame. Just as we thought we could
get along with Earth… You will continue to build
diplomatic relations with Earth. Yes, sir. (ARMORED FLEET DAIRUGGER XV) (ARMORED FLEET DAIRUGGER XV) DaiRugger means youth DaiRugger means love Young lives Have promised the heavens To fight To the bitter end Everyone, thank you so much… for throwing this grand party for me. We are still only halfway
to the completion of the Galaxy Star Map. From now on, please continue
to working with Ship Captain Ise… and do your very best! I will be on Earth… looking forward
to all of your achievements. Captain Asimov! This is a present from us. Please accept it. This is the Galaxy Star Map
created alongside you, Captain. Thank you. I hope that the next time we meet, the Star Map will already be completed. I will pray for everyone’s success. Commander Asimov. It is almost time to depart. I understand. I wish you a safe trip, Captain Asimov. Thank you for your long service. Rugger Guard, depart! The Hagi Support Fleet
must depart as well! We will continue our journey
to Number 15 Planet. The new ship captain, Ise, is finally… starting his work! Hey, Aki. There’s no time to be impressed. What? You have the first shift
on bridge duty, right? Oh, crap! I totally forgot about that. Sorry, please make way! Jeez. I’m sorry that I’m late! Listen up, Aki. Now that you’re here, You can’t be so carefree,
like how you were in the mess hall. What? I wasn’t being carefree! That is where you will sit. What? Excuse me,
but there’s no empty desk anywhere. Where are you looking at, Aki? Isn’t it right in front of you? What? This chair… We don’t have an extra desk at the moment. I’m sorry, but… you’ll have to bear
with sitting beside me for now. Captain! I mean, beside the Ship Captain? What’s wrong? You don’t like the idea? No, it’s an honor! I’m looking forward to work with you! Open all engines! Full speed ahead! That’s enough, stop it! It was a rather infuriating battle. What comes to mind
when you see that battle playback? Captain Lafitte. With regard to the battle, it’s true that the problem lies
with the pilot of the battle machine. If so, why aren’t we conducting
special training for them? Of course, that would include me, but with our skills, we will never be able to defeat
those from Earth! But Captain Lafitte, our planet and Earth are planning… to explore planets together
as a joint effort. Captain Gramon! It seems like Commander Teles’ timidness
has spread to you! What did you say? We will destroy anyone
who obstructs our way. That is the will of Galveston. That’s also why I became in charge… of the Galaxy Exploration Project. Isn’t that right? Captain Drake! As for the pilots of the battle machines, instead of making sure
they do well in combat, we should train them so that they can
conduct planet survey assignments! Please excuse me. Very well. He will keep tabs on Earth. However, I expect everyone else… to follow my orders. I will not. Commander Teles
is still the most superior officer here! What did you say? -Enter.
-Please excuse me. What’s wrong, Drake? You’re making such a troubled expression. Is there anything you’re worried about? That is… I worried about
Lafitte’s sudden rise in power. We have no choice. Then what should we do about Earth? Just as we were finally able to
conduct peaceful explorations together… Commander Teles! Take a look at this, Drake. I received this from Captain Ziegrone. According to this report, the hazard in Galveston has increased
by 20% compared to last year. By 20%? We have to hurry
in searching for a habitable planet. Distance to the Number 15 Star System,
Number 3 Planet, remains at 25,000 universe kilometers. We have detected an unidentified object! The fleet seems small. All right! This is the bridge. Is there anyone around? Rugger Team members must prepare
to launch immediately! There is no need to rush, Aki. What? Listen up. You have to
change your way of thinking that… we have to fight
as soon as we spot anyone in space. Yes, Team Captain… I mean, Ship Captain. All right! Let’s go! Chief Aki is quite pumped up! It’s his first assignment after all! To all Rugger Team members! Departure takeoff has been canceled! What? That hurt!
Just what was Chief Aki thinking? Well, give him a break. He’s still not used to working
in the bridge. You must not go easy on him! When is he going to stop being
so conceited? Yes, he’s too conceited! You fool! I was talking about you! Yes! It’s me! What? We will soon reach our destination,
the Number 3 Planet. The Earth Survey Team is closing in! What should we do, Captain Marius? According to Commander Teles, we can trust those from Earth. Should we report it
to the Frontline Command just in case? You’re right. We have reached the Number 15 Star System,
the Number 3 Planet. Galveston fleets confirmed! It seems like there are five of them. The enemy fleet seems to be… contacting their headquarters. I can’t decipher it clearly, but it appears that they are
reporting our presence… to the headquarters. Captain. Don’t be flustered. Request for joint exploration
in the Number 3 Planet immediately. Yes, sir. The Earth fleet has requested… joint exploration of Planet Number 3. How should we proceed? Tell Captain Marius… that we’ll commence
with the joint exploration. Yes! Commander Teles! The Lafitte Fleet has conducted
an emergency departure! What? Summon them back immediately! Captain Lafitte! This is a command
from Commander Teles! You must return immediately! Commander Teles. You have entrusted all matters regarding
the Galaxy Exploration Project to me. You are not allowed to do things
without permission, Lafitte! Return immediately! Don’t worry, Commander Teles. I just want to protect the Marius fleet
in case anything happens. I take my leave. Wait! Darn it, Lafitte! Commander Teles! They’re taking a while.
Is there still no reply from them? None so far. What’s happening?
Try contacting them again. There’s no need to rush. They are most likely awaiting orders. But it’s been such a long time. Being on the bridge makes me so agitated. We’ve received a transmission, Commander! It’s here! They agreed to the joint exploration! I see. Captain. (TO BE CONTINUED)
