The seasonal trainwreck is back in full motion.

GaryInaho is back with style. Getting all the chicks wet and providing you with this week's dose of pseudo-science. While Slaine got a pet sex slave and a comatosed Asseylum, to add to his leisure. Wow.

We also got some InkoxRayetxNina beachservice, in preparation to a malevolent battle and Inaho's free kill for the week. What a way to add in some atmosphere. Wowzerz.

I didn't know how I could miss this masterpiece so much. All hail Slaine. Soo many people are hurt because of the negarive feedback, targeted towards their favourite animuu. ;<

So episode 12 was rendered completely irrelevant, are you fucking kidding me ?
Not even the god-tier soundtrack can save this show..

Really... Everyone knew no one died it was obvious, as for Inaho being able to active the Aldnoah Drive was it really the kiss? They seem to mention the fact the blood on him is not his and looks like he ends up getting a droplet in his mouth.

Seems to me like now he might have some of Princess Asseylum's blood in his system which is what would active the drive, or maybe just her blood being in proximity allowed the drive to be activated.

*shrugs* seems more plausible then the kiss and assuming its not that does seem odd to show it.

Do people not remember this is based in the far future? Of course a bullet wound to the head would be easily repairable...

Amazing animation.

One thing that is definitely bad about this series.


there is simply too much CGI in this show. this is by no means amazing animation. its average at best with the big minus of overused 3d CGI effects.

It's just the first episode, but this didn't feel any different from the past Aldnoah episodes:

-Inaho is way smarter than the average veteran soldier (not really a criticism but stop making it so apparent that the MC is OP)
-There are some exposition stuff in the first half and then a fight in the second half (the generic formula that the show has always used)
-The asspulls. All characters are alive. After setting up that rather shocking (?) finale to a first season, they decide to bring them all back to life. That's not how you start another season. Move on from the old and start with the new... Don't have characters who were going to die linger on like clingy ex-lovers.

The writers of this show needs to sit down with Gen Urobuchi and really go over what he wants. What the current writers are doing is dragging on a story with great potential with idle chatter and explanations and slipping in a fight or two if the series feels like it gets too boring. To try and keep the interest level up even more, writers slip in bad cliffhangers/plot twists that just wastes screen time (e.g. spends about 5 minutes showing princess getting strangled to death, then next episode spends about 10 minutes bringing her back to life).

My rant aside, I'll keep watching to see if the series improves. But overall a lackluster start.

Episode gets a 7/10, it still has it's obvious flaws that season 1 had.
Inaho is back and with a cyborg eye. I like it. People complaining that he should have an eye patch. . . . . .
Also the princess is basically dead. She's slaines pet now. Didn"t really like the ED but it wasn't horrible.

Inaho also now has the power of aldnoah. NICE.

Damn..... what happened........ What the heck is this trash?........Its not even fun anymore...
For me all anime is anime original. I dont read manga, light novels, visual novels, etc.

Always make sure to watch anime in marathon mode and not one episode per week mode, because its the only way for you to tell if an anime is enjoyable or not. Countless times Ive seen anime weekly and enjoyed them but when I watch them marathon, I didnt like them anymore. And many times Ive seen anime that I saw weekly and hated it, but when I watched it marathon, I enjoyed it. Marathon is the way to go, specially if you plan to add an anime to your favorite list.

So Slaine did a 180 and is now a BA like the MC of Guilty Crown

My man Saazbun is no longer a BA

Inaho has plot armor skill like Shirou.

Beach episode on the first episode.


WOW!!!!!

A fantastic start to the new season. Inaho makes a return and now with a cyborg eye to boot!

Slaine confirmed as an obsessed mad man just as predicted.

LOL what? Slaine is nothing like Shuu. It's an insult to Shu to even put them in the same comment

I expected the princess to be alive (obviously Slaine would do everything possible to save her), but I really wanted Inaho to be dead. That would build up the drama a lot more... princess would be mad at slaine, others would want revenge, etc etc.
But that's just me. Anyways, I hope this show rocks!

This. This is the reason I watch anime. Awesome, intellectual fights, riveting plot twists and touching moments accompanied by sublime music. 10/10 Urobutcher you did it again.

C'mon guys. C'mon.

We all predicted this would happen. How could we expect anything else?


It's not so much about we didn't expect them to be alive, but all we ask is for someone to make something believable. now I don't know any part of these half-assed explanations to be believable in any way, this is why authors should only put themselves in a corner only when they planned a proper reason or explanation how they're gonna get out of the corner. in this case, a kiss? seriously? and the princess shouldn't even be in a comatose if someones kisses her doesn't die, so why should she even be hurt if she has the blood, oh, and even if she didn't have a regenerative power, she was shot in the back and in the head.... frankly the idea that she still can be saved is ludicrous. you cannot suspend the disbelief at this point.

Anyone know what's the name of the song that played when Inaho kicked the knight's ass in the battle?
It sounds familiar, but I can't found it the soundstack of the first part.. :(

These are the same sheeple who have stuck with this show for the past year, despite "hating" it. Serious issues or ultimate rusemasters, hard to say.

Cruhteo was vaporized sadly. Sazbaum was thorough with him. Unlike Slaine with his shitty aim

This was so ridiculously bad. What was even the point of the last scene of episode 12? Inaho somehow obtains aldnoah and let me guess, he figured out the princess is fake because of that small remark. Well, not like I expected any better. The soundtrack motivates me to watch this pile of trash a little.
The anime industry is dead, the otaku fanbase killed it.

Maybe if you paid some fucking attention to what was happening on screen, you'd realize that valid explanations were given all around.
