So I watched most of Aldnoah Zero in less than 2 days. I’d seen the first 3-4 eps before that, but I decided to catch up after seeing something spoiler-y on twitter.
The thing I like most is probably that the mecha’s in this anime look like ones from Gundam. The Martian’s mechas look like Zeon Mobile Suits, and Terran’s mechas look like Gundam Mobile Suits. In that the Martian’s mechas are all curvy and cooler looking, where as the ‘good guy’ Terran’s mechas are kinda square and angular and bit boring, imho.
And I like the character design too, Seylum hime-sama and Nina are adoooorable. Slaine, looks a bit like he could be evil, but he’s not. It’s just his eyes are more of a stereotypical baddy, and match better with the bad guys of the series. And it alllllmost goes well. Almost. But then everything goes tits up once again, and gets even worse. I mean shit hits the fan, HARD.
It was featured on Danny Choo’s Culture Japan too.
Slaine looks a tad evil.. but not too bad.
And it’s fun to watch, but the first few eps were a tad predictable, but still cool.
And I do like the ending theme too.
