her point is being vengeful side character 1800% better than MUH HUMERAAY
also she was right all along martians are shit
shame her attempt to kill asshime failed season 2 would be much better
to hook up with inko
it was pulled because the world wasn't ready
I thought at first she would be a good character show the conflicting prejudices of Martians and Earthlings but then she kind of just got forgot about, all the way to the end.
I hope she marries Inko or something.
She was supposed to be the autist love interest for the autist MC, but the producers couldn't put it properly into the story or else they'd feel the wrath of their fujoshi target demographic who despise anything heterosexual, so light teasing is all we got.
Actually the same reason why Hime was killed multiple times and in the end wasn't even won by Slaine nor Inaho, but instead put into a loveless political marriage with some random count who's probably abusive (assuming his father's behaviour can be taken as an indication, it's in his genes). That way, the pretty rich girl that's the object of fujoshi jealousy "got what was coming to her". It satisfied their revenge fantasies, Hime being the insert for the obnoxious Little Miss Perfects in their own lifes.
She's playing the tsundere there, futilely denying that she wants her eggs scrambled by Nao, badly.
A little, but it's rare just like any kind of fanart when it comes to Rat.
She was always worst girl.
>Naive as fuck.
>Gets her own way despite the fact her methods should fall flat on their ass even in fiction.
>Being an unlikeable bitch who can't into empathy or critical thinking.
Can I get some context on that? I dropped S2 after the first episode pissed me off completely.
Inaho worked together with Rayet to bust some dude out of military prison (it's a long story), because Rat is the person he trusts most. She's a girl who's game for anything, as long as Inaho asks her to, after all.
But in the end, nothing came off it anyway, since nobody won the eggsbowl, no matter what the various shippers like to claim.
You realize that's like 5 images, right?
He said it right: >>123362272
Almost everyone didn't matter much, and even those characters that only had one brief scene that even mattered at all to the story still had a lot of appearances before and after.
But not the kind of appearances that give you a slice-of-life get-to-know-a-character feel. It wasn't amusing or entertaining or anything. Really, in almost all instances they were just pointless distractions.
What is she denying? That they're the same?
What's compelling people to come up with those crack pairings?
Because of people being utterly butthurt about shipperfaggotry. Why people expect the ruler of an entire planet-based nation to give a fuck about two lowly Terrans is beyond me.
She was denying to be any different from the martians she despises, while Inaho insisted that she's better than that, so to speak.
Shippers will always ship.
I don't mind it if the characters are entertaining when they act together but honestly you'd be hard-pressed to find good relationships between any of the A/Z cast.
Given that earth is now under much higher evolutionary pressure it stands to reason that it might have better stock genetic material.
Vers might very well suffer from incest too.
If you're just counting ones where they both show up it's like 8. Explicitly shipping them is like 4.
don't forget to include the stuff like
> Not everyone has to be interesting or have a love affair.
Do you want to sit down to be told a story about a war and adventure and love and stuff, but then have it derail into the story teller very inefficiently establishing fairly to entirely irrelevant character details of characters that won't even matter in the story anymore, for hours on end?
[It's not a sexy, nice, funny, whatever detail, it's just irrelevant shit like that they walked through a door and greeted someone, that they put on an uniform over their shirt, that they were already standing in the hallway, that they were also battling in a battle where you already know everyone is involved - but without doing anything special...]
I kinda don't.
Does it say that Inko won the Eggs? The artist drew that prematurely because of all the Inko flags in season 2, right?
It kinda amuses me that A/Z didn't even have the guts to commit itself to any pairing in the end, just the way it would never kill any character off as long as it could be avoided somehow. Gotta keep all the possibilities open, because then everybody will be happy, right?
He's musing that she's smaller than Inko, which is actually true.
He drew it after that interview where Aoki said that if anyone were to win Eggs, assuming he survived the headshot, it would be Inko.
>Nihei introduces third-gender characters
>Both become girls for male pilots
>Neither can ever consummate their love because
Tanikaze fucks tentacles and the other one dies in the Second Assault Fleet
What is even the point of a third gender.
I thought that was an ん and was so confused.
Yuhata doesn't even feel that way about Izana. She still has hope that Nagate can be turned back to the normal breeding side. Which
the Captain proved by fucking him for 3 days.At least, until Nihei changed it to "Many days."
>Yuhata doesn't feel that way.
>Literally grabs Izana's hand when Nagate chooses Tsumugi and says she hasn't been rejected yet whilst Izana assumed they both were because Nagate chose.
>Assuming girls don't hold the hands of friends
>Assuming Yuhata will just move on to being a lesbian after lusting for dick
>Assuming Izana will remain a girl if Yuhata somehow wins her heart
You're chubby chasers, aren't you?
Shakti, Relena Peacecraft, Dianna Soreil, Marina Ismail are all the worst character in their respective Gundam series. No wonder a show that tried to surpass Gundam also had an obnoxious peace loving princess character.
Lacus doesn't count since she's actually evil and orchestrated all events to take over the world.
Add Mineva Zabi to that list. It's not like I wouldn't fuck her if given the chance, but one shouldn't be deceived by her great looks. The way she betrayed her Zeon heritage made me pretty mad. She should've aimed to bring the Federation down or die trying. No bullshit UNDERSTANDING that's doomed to fail anyway.
So by the posts in this thread, it looks like I shouldn't continue watching past ep1 of S2, and that I should just delete my A/Z folders from S1 and pretend that all of it has never happened
And those fuckers had the nerve to cast Kazuya Nakai in his role. He has cut up towers, galleons and mountains(or at least soon he will), he created lightning dragons by shouting and rode motorcycle horce, breakdanced his enemies to death and ate metric tons of mayonaise. And now he had PTSD, what a brilliant addition to his career.
He's like rat, a character that was changed from Uro's preliminary version. The problem is that they didn't know what to do with him because they haven't written the whole thing beforehand.
Best Martian killing duo.
Honestly though, Rayet was probably the one character that had the most chemistry with Inaho. Throughout the series she gains development with Inaho. I liked episode 5 of this season where Inaho goes out of his way to reassure and comfort Rayet that she's different from the other Martians. It was also a little bit neat how that carried over to the next episode where Rayet is the one that was carrying him over to the building and was apparently the only one informed of his plan.
I don't get why they didn't give Inaho a Rayet end. Inko was just teased throughout the series about her crush on Inaho with no actual reciprocation and Asshime just goes and marries a random guy while Rayet got development with Inaho
Citation required. Inaho only ever had one love interest and couldn't have cared less about Rayet.
You just hate the truth. Get over it, the bitches all lost.
Cruhteo a shit. My only hope is that his kid is just as twisted.
Stay delusional, landwhale. Fact is every fucking one lost except for Hime goodie two-shoes. Eggs got cucked, Slaine's rotting away in prison, Marito remains married to alcohol instead of MUH HUMERAY imouto, that gal who can't get a date never got a date, and neither did anyone else, whether bitch or dude doesn't matter.
Thinking about it, how is the lie that Slaine was behind the assassination even going to work? Everyone that worked at the moon base knew that Saazbaum was behind it, they blocked Asseylum's transmission and were part of the conspiracy. Are all of them going to have to be locked up in a secret prison for the rest of their lives? What about within the UFE? Those that were at the HQ when it was attacked know and of course there's everyone on the Deucalion. That's a bunch of mouths that need to be kept shut.
Talk about corrupt peace.
I am actually not, but you fuckers are by far the most annoying shipperfags in these threads, therefore no homo guy has all my blessings as long as he annoys you back in retaliation.
Except when they aren't, because while they are peace-loving, they also own fucking overpowered PINK space cruisers.
All these sides characters and none of them had any sort of character development whatsoever. They didn't even help develop the main characters. It's like everything in this show was pointless.
How could anyone forgive her after choking out hime? It took them a whole minute for everyone to feel sorry for her because muh dad dead i hate martians.
None of the characters mattered at all except inhao, slain, and hime to an extent.
I really don't know what he was thinking with that ending, unless he set it up that way purposely to fall apart for a sequel then none of it made sense. With the number of people that knew Slaine didn't do it, keeping it a secret would be impossible.
>I just can't wrap my head around those two together.
Rayet was betrayed by her Versian home, and some were hoping her character development would come in by having her get over her hatred for Martians and team up with Slaine.
What was the point in S2?
Lemrina and Harklight brought..............nothing.
Slaine's whole character turned 180 and he went to shit.
Inaho decided to be an even more broken gary stu than the first season.
All the Orbital Knights lost every fight, They never won one at all.
What is the fucking point in Aldnoah Zero?
Everything was pointless. All that talk Slaine and Harklight did about revolutionizing Vers and fixing things turned out to be nothing, it's like they talked up the big story but did absolutely nothing with it. They gave the audience the expectation that things would happen and in the end none of them did, I hope the remaining BDs flop.
Speaking of Harklight, why did we never get a flashback to him and Slaine meeting and deciding to do what they did? He was crazy loyal and we never really knew why other than he respected him.
There was no point, Vers is still a feudal society as well. I could have see them ending it with Asseylum fixing Vers in a different way but she didn't even do that. With any consolation war will probably break out again since not all of the Knights were on board with her.
Then why even talk it up? Why even have Slaine kill Saazbaum and try to have a revolution if they were never going to let it get off the ground? Should have kept Saazbaum alive so he could be the big bad and keep Slaine as his vassal.
After episode 15 I was expecting a revolution for the Vers people, nothing happened.
They could have put the story in. Just they should have stopped focusing on having a pointless battle every goddamn episode. I never thought I would see the day when I wanted less combat.
>Rayet has been attending Shinawara High for years. She's surly but dependable, and Inko and Nina feel responsible for her and take care of her.
>She and her dad have been part of a terrorist cell for years, though.
>Trillram kills her dad in front of her.
>She jumps in a damaged Kat and goes ballistic on him; ends up having to get rescued in the same way as Yuki-nee.
>Wants to kill all Martians.
>After Asseylum reveals herself, is conflicted, eventually tries to kill Asseylum and has to reveal that she was a double agent to all her friends.
>When Asseylum forgives her and promises to make life better for ordinary people on Vers, Rayet becomes her loyal and loving lesbian knight.
Then at least A/Z would surpass
>Speaking of Harklight, why did we never get a flashback to him and Slaine meeting and deciding to do what they did?
I hope he helped Saazbaum treat Slaine's wounds after Saazbaum rescued him from Cruhteo's.
Maybe there'll be a manga about it.
I do not know, in fact I can not understand.
Their script always seemed invented on the spot week after week (only improvisation can explain the addition of Crutheo Jr at three episodes left without any foreshadow). We are at the levels of Morosawa for bullshits and disorganization.
They probably thought it would take too much effort to write a proper story, should have never bothered with the revolution talk in the first place if they weren't going to go anywhere with it.
Slaine would woo her with his charisma? This was before we had seen the full force of the shit writing so anything could have really happened which is the biggest disappointment of the show. The whole time we all expected some shitty ending but a BIG shitty ending, this wasn't even a train wreck because in the end we got LITERALLY nothing.
Not enough. Not with AZ's general pace if they want to seriously cover topics like interplanetary racism, corrupt monarchy, and the like. Most 2cour mecha have been shit story wise. A serious war story simply requires more episodes.
Seems that most of the after series art is Inaho healing Slaine, it's like Asseylum doesn't exist anymore.
Anon, please. If not for Sauce doing all the propaganda legwork for years, Slaine wouldn't even have an army to take over.
Also, giving blessings for orbital knights to tag random pieces of land as earthspace isn't exactly turning them into earthfags.
They were aiming for something like pic related, Slaine talking all blame to be a martyr of peace which was hinted hew as trying to do in the end so Ass wouldn't have opposition and trying to kill himself, Ass and Inaho bail him out at least saving him (as if Suzaku and Nunners conspired against Lelouch's Requiem) but letting him take the blame. He starts a new life.
But it was so badly executed and a mess that came out absolutely terrible and made everything shitty.
Does anyone else think Count Books should've stayed with the Deucalion so we could finally get some interaction between the Terrans and Martians? Rayet doesn't count because she's against her own people. There were so many moments where they could've developed the characters but they somehow managed to waste it on nothing.
I honestly think they could have if they cut out those fight scenes. We had so many pointless fights against irrelevant characters. For what purpose? Ice guy fight, invisible mech fight, all unnecessary.
It really doesn't work since so many know it's a lie, with minimal digging anyone of the Knights on Vers side can figure out it's a lie. With Knights not siding with her already Asseylum has set herself up for it to all fall apart and eventual civil war.
G-reco gave it a good try, but you can still see how it messes with the general pacing. Nope, 3cours minimum, I'm convinced. Otherwise plot elements will always be sacrificed.
>What was even her point in the story?
She was there to add artificial depth to the story at the beginning. Making the story seem complex by having multiple subterfuge arcs at the beginning makes a good first impression and stops most whiners from posting their first whine. These superficial depth investments are tactics you see in various light novel stories as well, so it's nothing new.
Earthside still needs to be in the story somehow. That's just the laziest way. Cut them out, and you almost erase earthside entirely. Then you can't have a war story.
It won't work.
You're my new best friend. Nothing like a BTFO breeder to make my afternoon an adventure in posting homo just to piss you off.
>Inaho's idea of an April Fool's joke
>Slaine takes it seriously
Why do all the female counts and Rayet have the same hair colour?
I didn't say cut out all fight scenes, just unnecessary ones; of which there were too many, like the ones I specified. The fight against the ice guy? That was just there to allow Inaho to show off and show the audience his new eye. Which could have been done in a variety of different ways. Instead, an entire episode dedicated to taking out fodder on the grand scale of things.
Slaine was practically already at the serving of Saazabaum and was more ambitious and evil. There was no ambiguity, the point of the story was just the love between Ass-Hime and Inaho with Slane that gets in the way.
It would work much better, exactly because of shoty numbers of episodes.
The whole mess happened because they have distorted the story, but left unchanged the ending (which, in fact, no longer makes sense with these premises).
And Sauce soldiers who surrendered when his attack on Russian base failed, Dorito, the whole Deucalion crew, people who worked for Cruhteo. UFE and Asseylum would need to keep everyone quiet or put them in prison.
Was Yuki-nee just a poor man's Misato in the end?
Much like what I said about Asshime Inaho and Saazbaum getting a cap popped up all of their asses at the end of series 1, you don't know that. Hell it could be Harklight or Bob Barker in that hospital bed.
For earth to be an actual opposition in a war, they need to be relevant. As it is, barely any viewer cares. Cut it down futher and they'll be practically canon fodder tier. You don't wage war against canon fodder.
Yeah, thinking about how many people know, blaming him just doesn't make sense. I don't know why they didn't blame Saazbaum as well, he did attack the UFE HQ and commanded the moon base for 2 years.
What if some of the moon base staff still believe in Slaine's cause and don't like that Slaine-sama took the blame for everything? They can join the other Counts and tell them the truth. Once Lemrina is treated she could go to fight, remember she wanted to continue the war for Slaine.
Lemrina must be furious that he was blamed and she probably blames herself for telling Asseylum. Since there are Counts that aren't giving up their lands it would be easy for them to ignite a civil war.
They were cannon fodder though. Their significance was irrelevant except for the fact "lol, we're space knights". Their only purpose in the story was to be beaten by Inaho. I understand that they have to show Earth being war torn, but there are other ways to do this then spending every episode having Inaho beat the little bad.
Sauce was the only worthwhile character in the show, as well as the only one who truly cared about the future of Vers. His only mistake was trusting that useless faggot Slaine.
All the Martains are at least have 1-2 generations along if they didn't originate from Earth itself. It seems unlikely that red-hair was the predominate hair colour amongst the original scientists unless the counts/Rayet are at least first/second cousins.
The story was about Slaine, he was the one who became Zero to start over from there in the end (even if it was poorly displayed). Now I understand why he was the first one created, it's like they built the entire plot about his chase, rise, fall and rebirth.
Their loyalty for Slaine was never shown to be personal except for Harklight and maybe the handfuls who came back to moonbase to fight. It's very possible everybody who's left simply cares more for their chicken.
In the past we joked about Lacus saying she was evil but ... She has never done anything so disgusting. With this action (even just accept what they did, without opposing) completely redefines her character. Think that some of the Knights who started the war in the first season (those who are guilty of the greater destruction) still alive and free with no guilt ( or or that no one accuse "Saazam") ... is disturbing.
OlderShinji was kind useful for giving history via flashbacks.
As for the second season, nobody was worthwhile outside those 3. Even people who did important things like the other Counts could have been cut back with all their actions put into one character.
What makes you think it wasn't Slaine's idea or that Slaine doesn't agree or wants this? At the last episode, he sabotaged Vers side from doing an effective war come back so Ass could not be defied in a successful way.
Slaine's dream was always peace and coexistence and his aspiration was to be of use to Ass not expecting anything in return. He never sought anything for himself, he was probably expecting death if he succeeded too. With his charge and actions in the last episode, he ensured this was going to happen and he wanted to eliminate himself so Ass wouldn't find a strong opponent. Inaho and Ass saved his life and gave him a chance to start over, Slaine is dead but he as person is not and he accomplished what he wanted: peace, Aldnoah becoming open to everyone (well not the way he exactly wanted, but this was a point he addressed), be of use to the princess and knowing that she didn't want him to die helped him to face his guilty conscience and be at peace with his actions and deeds. Slaine might not have started the war but he still killed people and did shit he hated because he's a naturally kind and gentle person. He couldn't live with himself but in the end he accepted it and felt free.
I don't think he had any input in them blaming him for everything. He wouldn't care since he wanted to die but it's just not right and is a easily found out lie that can fuck over Asseylum's peace.
>Inaho still trying to find a way to cheer him up
I wonder why people don't realize that what brought the situation to be called as a ceasefire isn't so much Asshime's speech but what Slaine did after the speech. He disarmed the Vers side and made it scattered so there would not be hostilities and he knew exactly what he was doing, that's why he was as satisfied as Sauce to be killed in the end, because he knew he accomplished what would give foundations for what Ass and he wanted.
She didn't grow or develop as a character at all, even though she was the most naive and stupid character in the entire series and STILL always had things go her way (hurr durr universal Aldnoah priveleges no way this could fail. Oh wait, you mean it actually worked and everyone's at peace now? right...).
Plus being a slut, with so many people pining after her, and she'd willing take all of their dicks except Mazuurek's simply because she never met him.
He said in episode 19 he just wanted to be of use of her.
Slaine foresaw this. Remember his talks to Lemons, Slaine is a cunning person who knows how to read the political field. He did this exactly to be blamed. He could have easily surrendered and but then someone would taken his place. He ensured nobody would at least for now.
A weak opposition with a poor morale. Those Counts aren't wagging war but minding themselves. Fixing Vers is an issue that was handwaved, but if it becomes Capitalism, she and the feudal system is screwed. Either way, Slaine realized there was another way and went for it to do what would take to ensure it would happen.
Ass once again did nothing though, which makes it annoying as fuck. She sat and let Slaine do the job for her and Inaho to pick up the pieces.
Princes of Miserable Peace waking up completely ruined the show.
If Slaine finished his transformation into space Hitler the story could go to conflict and less drama.
And they did not explain ayy lmao technology and disappearance.

Yes and okey... but there are moral implications that should be considered. The actions have meaning. The fact that Slaine wants to play the villan and die, can not and and MUST NOT prevent the protagonists (especially if they are shown as positive characters) to do the right thing.
Accuse throw on him all responsibility and leave out the real culprits is a right thing? No, it is not. So, whether voluntary or not, it seems that Asseylum uses Slaine (a terrestrial spy) to not put a bad light on Mars. But Mars has caused the death of millions of people in the season 1. this is unacceptable.
There was already a lot of death, the right thing to do is try to stop the kills instead of punishing more people. I understand what you say, but I don't think she's using him more than he obviously played the situation in the end to be used on his favor and hers: and he obviously knew he was going to be blamed, he foresaw all the outcomes already, he knew what would happen when he took that choice. She is not that smart. Is it bad they blame someone who didn't do it? Of course, but he doesn't mind this, he got what he wanted in the end and he got a second chance to start over he had never considered after being relieved of all the guilt he felt. Ass' wish for him to be saved of misery reached him. That's probably what they wanted to convey but the show was just so badly written and rushed in the end that failed and made Ass look like a huge bitch and everyone braindead.
Those three birds flying together in the end was because the three were in the same wavelength. Slaine sacrificed his life and identity to be the Devil Ass needed for peace. Ass sacrificed her happiness to be with the two of them, to be the ruler they needed to bring their desired peace. Inaho sacrificed any grudge he had for Slaine to save him and try to bring him a hope for happiness. Of course you can argue Slaine was the one who sacrificed more things and you would be right, he did. But he has now a chance to start fresh and do whatever he wants and be whoever he wants, he has absolute freedom after he is released. Slaine was always defined for his origin or by his fathers and now that is gone, that must be a huge weight off his shoulders.
The main problem wasn't with Slaine's arc but with the war itself. I suspect this anon is right >>123372647 The story was centered on Slaine's journey to be Zero. The intergalactic war was the setting (in particular the second cour) which is why we have so many plotholes left hanging.
Too bad about the shit writing.
It was in an interview with Aoki online. The same he speaks of his influence (Zoymer, Macross, Patlabor, Gundam). The second cour was going to be about the true meaning behind Zero of the title.
Mineva Lao Zabi is the only good peace loving pussy princess. fact!
when you're on the verge of moral (and all the war stories are) you have to be very aware of what you're putting on screen. The limit to something ambiguous, but acceptable for a special need to something totally perverse is thin.
I think this is chink.

I'm not translating the last two bubbles. Too much text for my mediocre skills.
If they wanted him to go down while wanting to be blamed for everything then at least let the guy die like he wanted, he seemed to be at peace with everything at the end and then they dragged him back. Now Inaho's going to be stuck for who knows how many years healing him.
>Ass sacrificed her happiness to be with the two of them, to be the ruler they needed to bring their desired peace. Inaho sacrificed any grudge he had for Slaine to save him and try to bring him a hope for happiness
This is where the argument fails. Neither of their sacrifices, if you even call it that, are on the same level since it doesn't even effect either of them. Inaho is just doing Hime a favor he's not sincere, Hime gets to live the rest of her life in lavish luxury knowing that her dream is fullfilled. None of those are bad in the slightest and it;s added even worse when Slaine started the story being kicked around with everything bad happening to him and we're suppose to believe this is the best course of action? Give me a fucking break they could have done so many thing better than this but they didn't have the time, Slaine dying would have been a much better conclusion because he would have died with the knowledge that his life meant something in the end him going "Zero" just pushes the notion that he was always a failure and never amounted to anything and just got to live on due to the misguided will of the princess.
I feel sorry for Inaho, he's stuck picking up the pieces and fixing Slaine while Asseylum doesn't do jack shit. Having him save his life is one thing, asking him to free him from the chains of misery is a completely different matter.
>I feel sorry for Inaho
Why? He's a hero of earth and an army general now at the tender age of 18. His own oblijection is due to literally being a retard he should have just killed Slaine because keeping him alive does nothing to him just his faint promise to Hime. That's why the ending is so bad is because it feels like Slaine is the only one who lost anything.
You don't answer a question with another question retard. Slaine's life was always in pieces it's when he actually had a chance to accomplish something that it meant something and when it failed it didn't matter at all.
>Inaho got cucked by some random asshole who came completely out of left field, I'd count that as a loss
Yet he does not give a shit.
>Although being a military hero who survived everything certainly makes up for it and losing Hime ain't even that bad, especially if you have a harem of Inko, Rat, Slaine and your Onee-chan all for yourself to make up for it.
Exactly, he has his friends and family intact so he's fine without her
>Yet he does not give a shit.
Didn't you notice the anguish in his eyes?
>Does anyone else think Count Books should've stayed with the Deucalion so we could finally get some interaction between the Terrans and Martians?
No because only fujoshis give a shit
What was even his point in the story?
If you consider S2 there was no point in anything.
I mean season 1 had various issues (quite a few of them actually), but it was not bad either. Season 2 delivered nothing but shit and bullshit, it wasn't event a proper trainwreck.
Why did they even have Saazbaum and Slaine talk about how bad the people of Vers's lives are and how wealth only goes to the top? Asseylum didn't change anything within the society so even though she's made these deals with the UFE the people of Vers are still suffering. Are we supposed to imagine it all falling apart and them overthrowing her and chopping off her head or something?
>Are we supposed to imagine it all falling apart and them overthrowing her and chopping off her head or something?
It's my preferred interpretation at least. But then again, ideally things never should've gotten to this point, see >>123361358
>shame her attempt to kill asshime failed season 2 would be much better
Nobody of importance died except for best boy Salsa. Hime proved to be completely immortal. Eggs saved everyone and everything because his magic eye lets him do anything. But both MCs got cucked by some random dude. The end.
I don't know about /a/ but /v/ weebs are ERPing blogshitters with awful taste in video games, not as cancerous as r/4chan or 8gag but not good either.
The fake death back in episode 1 was still acceptable in my opinion, but Rat's assassination attempt should've definitely done her in for good.
Thinking back on it, I wonder why anyone ever thought that anybody died at the end of season 1. At that point they had already demonstrated that they'll always shy away from serious consequences for their precious main cast. Not only did they raise Hime back from the dead for the second time in episode 10, they didn't even let Rat carry out her suicide attempt. If they really wanted A.Z to be taken serious as a war story, they would've at the very least killed one of the two girls off in that kind of situation, preferrably both. But they didn't have the guts to go through with it. If they didn't have the guts then, why should they have them later on?
I feel positively foolish that I ever expected any different from those fucking hacks.
There will be a 16 page feature in Animedia, out on the 10th.
They might produce an OVA or two, but sales numbers don't seem to justify continuing the franchise beyond that. I guess they'll let A.Z die before those decent sales get a chance to turn into losing bargains.

Non stop talking -->
You basically said absolutely nothing and expect me to sign this, bastard! What's this happy family?! Is your head broken?! Let go!!!
Urobuchi wouldn't have done fluffy Slaine, and although we would have been happier with the ending, Slaine was actually the only thing Aoki did kinda right.
I like fluffy Slaine, so I'm torn in wanting the butcher.
i feel like I gained nothing but I lost nothing. Fuck equivalent exchange.
We can pretend he really is one, just that she is flat as a board. She's pregnant, that's why Inaho was concerned about her eating.
>doctor troyard wanted a boy so dressed and put slaine birth certificate as male
>slaine decided to embrace a boyish persona as protection in crouton's orbital castle
>inaho figures out slaine's gender in episode 12 before getting shot
>everyone feels gay and uncomfortable because slaine is too beautiful to be a boy, lemons is a lesbo who doesn't care
I swear Lemrina was the most entertaining character in this. Almost every scene with her devolved into melodrama, which was way better than everything we had in the first cour.
It's funny how little art she's gotten after the show ended, it's pretty much all Inaho taking care of Slaine.
Maybe this was what she really asked Eggs to do but anal engine lied to him so it wouldn't destroy his mental image of her.
There's nothing interesting to draw.
>Asseylum never asked him to save Slaine from his misery
>his eye did that on its own
Anal-kun is a bro.
Seriously, that ending was so sanitary that those two's interaction was the only good part.
"How will Asseylum deal with recalcitrant counts?" is interesting, but doesn't translate well to fanart.
I've seen a few cute Lemrina pieces, like the ones where she gets robo legs and rescues Slaine and the one where she's taking first steps with Doc.
It's sad that our random ideas, theories, and speculation was better than what we got.
>at the end Eggs decides to forget about Hime and dedicate himself to winning the Slainebowl.
That's it. RIP EYEBRO.
It's about time that people finally got tired of Asshime's bullshit altogether.
If Slaine did not play along with her, she is fuck. And not to mention of many plot hole just in this episode. My complain is that Aoki and his team did not plan anything before hand at all to solve the story.
S2 in maximum edge, Macbeth style with Slaine/Hime/Salsa team up to rid the Knights of their toys and backstabbing each other in the process. Lem as an optional extra. Book replaces Croutons Jr.
Barcode dies tragically of betrayal. Slaine kills Salsa, Hime suicides mindbroken, Inaho thinks Slaine kills Hime, Slaine kills Inaho, Book walks in and Slaine commits suicide.
Key players dead, war over, Aldnoah drives lost, Aldnoah.zero and Book forms the provisional government.
Centuries later cut to the rediscovery of Aldnoah as heralding the 'new dawn for humanity'. Cut to Earth with resources used and a dying atmosphere and polluted water source stained in orange. Cut to the discovery of a new solar system with a habitable planet - roughly the same size, colour and habitability of Earth.
First solve the biggest problem with Vers. Attempting to force peace without solving the reason why the problem which caused the war to occur in the first place will just make the peace a short one.
She'll fail, and end up causing an even bigger divide between herself and her people. She'll approach them without knowing what's wrong, and demand their compliance not realizing that they aren't Slaine, who will hang off of her every word.
She won't. The Earth counts will either get destroyed by the UFE's newfound Aldnoah powered military, or if they somehow manage to defend their conquered lands, they'll found new states on Earth soil independent of the UFE who'll be there to stay for generations to come.
Considering that the UFE has control over Asseylum, by knowing about her lies, I think for them its a question of, should they side with Asseylum even though all of her people hate her and the Vers empire will envitably enter a civil war, even if its not in Asseylum's time. Or should they side with the Earth counts who hate Asseylum and will probably ally with you, and help to supplement the population on Earth. Also it would just be hurrying the inevitable anyway.
It won't, Vers has basically given up the only thing they ever had that made them unique, Aldnoah for everybody is going to create even more wars than ever before because shitty African warlord #278719 can now pilot a super fighting robot for his ethnic cleansing
It doesn't, in fact it doesn't even begin to address the problems in Vers. All its doing is giving over a super power energy to another country who Vers has a history of hostility with.
It doesn't unless feudal system is out, nothing is gonna change. Or unless Aldnoah can access to everyone, nothing is gonna change but another problem will still occur. In short, it doesn't change anything, only cause more problem.
I'd love to see them make an OVA just for this scenario. Lemmy's always been a resentful little bitch, but now that her sister made herself queen, sold out her country, drove Lemmy's love into suicide for all she knows and then declared him to be the great satan responsible for all the suffering in the world? Lemmy has every reason in the world and all the tools necessary to fuck up Asshime's plans as much as she can, no holding back anymore.
No, he wanted to build a new world with Aldnoah. He explained this to Harklight, he didn't like a society built only on worth of Aldnoah rights. He didn't want divisions.
My only problem with Hime's asspull victory is that it's an asspull she accomplished that (mostly because Slaine did the hard work fucking up the military) and because her stunt will have no future.
Mars is a shithole and they should move, end of the story.
For the people of Vers.
The problem with Asshime's "peace" is that she didn't even address the problems which created the strife in the first place (if she's even aware of them), in fact all she may have done is make things worse.
Lemmywinks is almost as pathetic as Char, I can totally see it.
She's an idiot, but so is Slaine, because both didn't want to reach to a common ground solution. The best would have negotiate with UFE to not BTFO them by giving them a land of their choosing (like Lake Victoria) and then settle there their colony. Then she could talk about peace and birds. They are both too extremists, although I can understand why Slaine had to be he didn't expect an asspull.
Thing is Slaine's plan was actually pretty sound, and actually addressed the problem. What makes him fall apart though is his loyalty and devotion to a retard like Asshime, and Eggs if it wasn't for that he would have probably succeeded.
You knows, as ridicurious as it sounds but compare Sauce to these two, I think Sauce idea is much more believable, he's like a fucking hitler but it least it make some sense. Ass and Slaine is so fucking high.
People actually thinking that Slaine and Inaho got a bad ending don't seem to see the bright side of the ending. Ass is the only character who got a bad end. She has to deal with the Knights and address the problems on Vers with a husband that is obviously useless and can't bring anything to the table. Inaho got over Ass which is a good end since he won't be stuck with a retard and is probably a general. Slaine is now back on Earth where he belongs and can finally be a Terran instead of a Martian wannabe. The end.
