The discovery of a hypergate on the Moon once allowed the human race to teleport to Mars. Those who chose to settle there unearthed a technology far more advanced than that of their home planet, which they named "Aldnoah." This discovery led to the founding of the Vers Empire of Mars and a declaration of war against the "Terrans," those who stayed behind on Earth. However, a battle on the moon—later called "Heaven's Fall"—caused the hypergate to explode, destroying the moon and leading the two planets to establish an uneasy ceasefire.

Their peace was a fragile one, however. Fifteen years later, high school student Inaho Kaizuka witnesses the plotted assassination of the Vers Empire's Princess Asseylum Vers Allusia, who had come to Earth in hopes of repairing the relationship between the empire and its homeland. The ceasefire is shattered, and the Martians declare war on the Terrans once again. In the face of this insurmountable enemy, Inaho and his friends must now fight against the Vers Empire to settle the war once and for all.

Well, well, well, it seems we have ourselves an anime with a title that sounds like it was created by throwing darts at a board filled with random words. Aldnoah.Zero, what does that even mean? But fear not, my dear reviewer reader, for despite its ridiculous name, this anime is actually quite thrilling.

Set in a distant future, Aldnoah.Zero tells the story of a war between Earth and Mars, and the battle for control of a powerful technology called Aldnoah. Our protagonist, Inaho, finds himself caught in the middle of this conflict, as he and his fellow soldiers fight to save ...

Mixed Feelings
Aldnoah.Zero is an anime with a lot of potential for a morally gray plot and characters that goes beyond simple action. It has an exhilarating, tense, and gripping premise from the first episode and the second and third continue this premise with seemingly high stakes and a war that looks complex, misguided, and morally gray.

After those three episodes though, it becomes increasingly apparent that there are no stakes and hardly any complex characters. The anime sets up an interesting plot and high tension, only to show mostly shallow characters and a more black-and-white conflict than it seems to want to portray, all with action that's ...

was Decent till the last episode. Can't even get through 3 minutes of the 2nd season without being pissed off. Just one of those anime that starts good but ends up crap. Also the CGI was meh at best and horrible at worst. I never really liked CGI in anime in the first place though so take that with a grain of salt. Also the MC is the least memorable person of the entire cast. He was so dull and boring and just would Ex Machina out of ever situation. If you wanna watch a ...
