Inaho is a cyborg now. Slain gone full Suzaku-mode and is somehow insane. Princess is in coma. Good start for new season.

Blood of Hime that was on his face is source of Inaho's Aldnoah powers
That's asspull of the year and it's only 10 days into.

I know, right?

Also, I just realized:

Aldnoah powers = space vampires

How was it bad? the ep was handled well

Slaine is currently doing everything right since his priority is the princess not earth.

I gotta say, with the exception of the purple hair princess, all the females in this episode were really annoying.

LOL are you serious? Inaho was already damaged from his fight with Sazbaum and all Slaine did was knock him through a wall. If they were both at 100% Inaho would dismantle Slaine without a problem.

It's only an asspull if you are under the mistaken impression that a headshot with a firearm is an unsurvivable automatic kill.

Damn they didn't waste time making Slaine even more hated, at least by me.

In a good spirit? She's in a goddamn tube, you freaking psycho.

At least Inaho's alive and quickly deduced the fake identity. I disliked Rayet in S1, then suddenly liked her this episode...too bad she dropped her standard so quickly lol. Not a bad start for S2.

Slain did it because Inaho was half-dead lol. We all know Slain is stupid vers minion. When fight Inaho vs Slain will come Inaho will kill him similar to rest of knights, Slain is nothing more than other knights

The animation is great.
The soundtrack is pretty amazing.
Characters I like surviving.

It was a good episode. Why all the hate? It's been mentioned before, but even with our current medical advances, a person can survive a shot to the head, depending on the trajectory of the bullet. People who put a gun in their mouth and shoot have been known to survive it.

And Inaho isn't a robot (even if he has a robotic eye.) In all likelihood, he has something like Asperger or R.A.D, which is kind of cool.

-Starts like beach episode
-Princess is alive and gives speach
-Evil Ice Mecha
-Inaho with cybernetic eye defeats him
-Inaho has Aldnoah power due to kiss
-Princess is fake purple haired substitute
-Real princess is in stasis


And this is what makes it so great.Glorious trainwreck of the season by far 10/10

I really don't get the hate for this series. I mean, sure it's not like greatest anime ever made or anything like that- but you're seriously going to call it a trainwreck and hate on it because the main characters didn't die? Kind of ignorant, really.

Good episode, good start for the new season. The whole blood spatter/kiss thing giving Inaho the ability to use Aldnoah was kind of expected, considering it was shown in the first series that the ability to use Aldnoah could be transferred by what looked like a handshake.

Slaine being the villain is pretty much the way it should be, he was one of the worst characters in the first season. He quite literally made every bad/wrong choice he could all through season one, so this is no surprise either.

Inaho shows that he has grown some as a person, being able to make small talk and emote just a tiny bit. But the hate for him will never die because he's not some worthless, weak, walking bag of emotions. No surprise there.

Go Go Gadget Eyeball!

Gonna give this episode a 7/10.
Odds are I'm not going to find my way back to a thread after my first post, it happens on occasion but not often. So, if I say something that offends you and you feel the need to force your opinion on me because obviously everyone should have your opinion or none at all, feel free to post it in the thread that I'll probably never see again. However, if you are interested in intelligent discourse, feel free to message me.

Slaine shows this crazy statement "as long as someone is alive it's fine". Unfortunetelly it works only when the world "alive" is correctly defined.

Anyway as for episode, it was "why are they all alive?"

Sure I would probably get bored quite fast if there wasn't "Inaho OP mechs with his orange school gear" but this episode took away so much from the ending of season one.

Yeah, there's dozens of examples of people surviving headshot wounds. These people don't even research.

If only Durarara!! X2 wasn't airing, this would be AOTS, folks!

Slaine being stupid as always. Lol @ -sama for Slaine. New Mahou Shojou Princess, I might end up changing who the best girl is depending on how this seasons goes.

Sawano being a genius as always, perfectly fitting music for an epic comeback.

5/5

At this point the only thing which will redeem this series is his death, hopefully by the Princess. That would be glorious
