I'm already liking this.
Very good animation, very good sound effects, very good music, a first sight of a good plot... what else do I want?
There's already a conspiracy in the first episode.

I'll have to watch more to elaborate a better comment but again, so far, I really like what I watched with the first episode.

Kalafina = budget so, Hiroyuki Sawano = more budget. I expect nothing less that goodness! jeje. Oh, that castle just vaporized USA.. damn!!

It's pretty obvious that the princess is alive and not dead

This first episode was super engaging! Slaine seems useless so far (also his voice doesn't seem to match his character???) but Inaho is pretty funny lol. The premise itself is super cool - Martians vs. Earthlings (or "Terrans"). I agree it's pretty obvious the princess isn't dead, but using the attacks as an excuse to wage war on Earth - looks like the Knights just want to kill everyone huh? I'm wondering if the attack was planned by them or if it was a group of people on Earth and they're just taking advantage of it. I thought the music was pretty good, especially at the end, and the animation seemed pretty sweet as well. The info dumps in the beginning were shoddily done but I'm hoping the plot will be good later on, because they have plenty of things to explore. I just hope that I don't get too sick of the MCs lol :P Also, the ED was awesome and flowed/fit in perfectly with the show, but I guess I should expect that from Kalafina XD

Impressive visual but not really impressive plot...
So Martians send their princess and she isn't like SUPER guarded by like air-support snipers and/or mechs or shit? No personal guards as well? 4 escort cars? and a not so crowded parade makes it seem like people on earth don't even give a F-k. Is this anime even serious? This was the most ridiculously staged assassination = "reason to start war" scene i have ever seen lol. At this point, earthlings, if they have brains (which i doubt since they were ridiculously stupid not to take measures to prevent this) should realize martians themselves have to be behind this.
P.S both main characters seem plain and boring..
Hopefully this will change in coming episodes.
P.S.S Knowing how Martians are not to be trusted, earthlings still have no air defense systems, just mechs?

OMFG! What an incredible episode

The first half was slow but the second half was simply the music and the nuke scene were perfectly in sync and great.Sawano's done it again. Animation is also good.When the bomb hit the city,the nearby people turned into ash in an instant..they showed it really good how a bomb explodes.

My expectations raised a lot.

(Btw wtf is wrong with the security..I mean she is the princess,so there should be a lot of security and all...but the final bomb blast scene made me forget about the fault)

Actually better than I expected...I cracked up so hard when Inaho said all deadpan : "There's a missile coming."
Loved the music, and the art was pretty good too.

It held promise and then it completely torpedoed itself.

Launching an assault on Princess Asseylum was a grave mistake by the Earthlings (Terrorists).
Now all 37 clans from Mars are on their way to the Earth, in order to destroy humanity. :O

Maybe it's intentional rather than a mistake. Or maybe the martians themself stage this assassination.
Nonetheless, when the enemy find competing with their own comrade more appealing than fighting their enemy, you know the Terrans are fucked.

Yeah the Martians have advanced weaponary, and Terrans have their mech but they have very little territory to defend. I think the Terrans will be completely outmached within few days or weeks. They probably surrender or attempting a guerilla war.
