Banishment this world!
Jan 28, 2012
Didn't see a thread for it so thought I'd start one.

I loved this anime. It ran for two seasons before wrapping up it's story. Aldnoah.Zero is a sci-fi mech anime at its core. The pace is unrelenting, carrying you from the first moments of the anime all the way to the end without letting go for even a moment, and the musical score is spot on. If you want an epic action story about alien invasion, then you can't do better than this.

The story to me really emphasises never underestimating the underdog. It's a story of how no matter how much the odds are stacked against them, the heroes never give in, and how greed influences peoples minds, and never relying on brute strength alone. It's a story of betrayal and the lengths people will go to for love, and the misguided actions they lose themselves in along the way.

Aldnoah.Zero was nice,I much preferred the first season to the second however.
I felt that the Hero wasn't so much gifted,as everybody else was just really,really stupid.

It had a good plot line, but to maintain 'competitive balance' they made the Mars Knights stupidly arrogant. Practically every fight with one of them (Save Slade) went like this:
Pompous Arrogant ******* Knight #1: Haha look at me in my cool alien powered death machine! Nothing can stop me now muhahaha!
Inaho: Give me 5 minutes.
Pompous Arrogant ******* Knight #1: These petty dirty Terrans! They'll never figure out my 1 weakness!!! Oh crap my 1 weakness....*dead*
Pompous Arrogant ******* Knight #2: Hahaha noob! They'll never figure out my 1 weakness! I'll just sit here like a putz and spam my 1 attack!
Inaho: Give me 3 minutes. (Season 2) Give me 1 minute and 55 seconds.
Captain pissed off: Your new eye is great, Inaho! Fog of war? What fog of war?
I think Lieutenant Mojito lampshaded this midway through season 1, when he talked about both sides' combatants not having any combat experience.
