The Aestivalis Ground Battle Frame is the main Aestivalis robot that appears in the Martian Successor Nadesico television series. It was piloted in the Jovian War by Gai Daigoji and later, Akito Tenkawa.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit



Aestivalis Ground Battle Frames were stationed on the ND-001 Nadesico. On the night of the ship's launch, Gai Daigoji, one of the intended pilots, was messing around in one of them. He imitated a Gekigan Punch move from his favorite anime, Gekigangar 3, in his Ground Battle Frame. While Akito watched from above, Seiya Uribatake, via loudspeaker, told Gai to get out as Gai tried to perform a Gekigan Blade. According to Seiya, their pilots weren't supposed to arrive for three days but Gai explained that when he heard they were going to be piloting Real Robots, he couldn't get there fast enough. Gai proceeded to perform his original move "Gai Super Upper". While Akito reminisced about the fact he too grew up watching Gekigangar, Gai tripped the Ground Type over. Gai liked how when he moved his arms and legs, the robot did the same just like on Gekigangar, rhetorically asking if he was a "born pilot". Seiya explained to him that using the latest Image Feedback technology, even a child/baby could move one. Gai Daigoji introduced himself to Seiya but according to the tablet Seiya has, the profile stated his name to be Jiro Yamada. That is the boring name that his mother gave him but Gai Daigoji is the name that belongs to his soul. Gai stands up, sending a taunting message to the "evil Jovians" it is at this moment he feels the injury he got from tripping over. Seiya tells him that he broke his leg but he is in denial. Gai screamed and asked Akito up on the catwalk to get his most precious possession still inside the Aestivalis cockpit. (Nadesico: "To Go Like a Man")
