How did Inko, a high school girl with no special skills whatsoever, survive the entire war in active combat, while all the trained adult male career soldiers died in scorching fire and explosions?
Because she masses more than the combined material of the Saturnian moons. We're talking thousands of miles of ablative exterior surrounding her organs like the big bloated sow she was.
The only scene in Argevollen that was worth a shit was this.
Only thing from Newtype I've found so far, apparently Inaho and Slaine are playing chess while having tea.
How could this autist get the best girl?
The Animedia one is of the both of them too.
He'll get a solo spread
when they announce S3
More importantly, how does a high school kid with no formal training go through the entire development cycle of a robust biomedical device in a short offscreen segment?
The writers of this show took their computer science straight out of the Die Hard series, it appears.
Plot armor, and canonically she was BETTER than Eggs up until a short while before the war started; she mentioned wanting to reclaim her place at the top of the class, and mech training was part of their school schedule
Not that "formerly first place" even matters, since after Butcher stopped writing Inaho turned into ORENJI, THE ACE OF ACES whom no one came even close to matching
Is this the only post-finale on Newtype?
>essentially programs an AI
>chucks it in the garbage once the war ends
The war was cancelled because Slaine gave up and went muh Hime and destroyed his base and tried to kill himself. Inaho's real job was to save his waifu and get this ending >>123756739
How the fuck did he survive Tanegashima
He spent the first cour drinking, then developing PTSD, then HUMERAAAAAAY'ing, was irrelevant for the second cour, and didn't take out a single Kat.
You know they fucked in that garden after the game. Winner got to top.
I still can't get over how selfish Asseylum was there. Here's Inaho who's passed out and injured inside an enemy base and she asks him to save Slaine and keep him from being miserable. Then you have that "you are a part of me" thing and then she goes and marries another guy the same day, never mind the fact that she thought nothing of him having a robotic eye in the first place.
I'm kind of thankful for Klancain popping up, he spared Inaho the fate of winding up with her.
If that's what they originally had wanted to do then I can see Inaho having Slaine moved and keeping him hidden in his house once he isn't suicidal. Inaho does get to do whatever he wants.
I have to wonder if it was Aoki's decision or Aniplex's to not go through with his initial ideas, they sound so much better than what we got. What we got was so safe and sanitary with no ambition.
It's not just that they met when they were young, they're CHILDHOOD FRIENDS. That implies that they've both known and been in contact with each other for a long time. There's also the fact that Yuki was a weekly drill instructor for their high school, and the fact that she rode the same bus as Inaho and co. going to that same school for so long that it became a routine and earned her the nickname of "Goddess of Tuesdays" from Calm; those facts imply that they'd been going to the same (high) school for a while, which puts Inko's comment of wanting to retake her top spot in the perspective that she only lost it recently.
If Aniplex wants a mecha franchise they really need to learn to be a bit more risky, safe and sanitary = forgettable. It's only been a couple weeks and I've already forgotten half the shit that happened in the show.
After a while with scanning letters and google translate all I got was this:
Time by In other river from there to the current form
Why did you?
To La 曰-out story has been told too dark
And it's only the second part because practically no kanjis are recognized
>end game was always Inaho and Slaine
They were really cruel toward the shippers, all that baiting.
You can always pretend he's a girl, not gay anons.
It's basically Aoki trying desperately not to make her into a Lacus Clone, but ending up with a worse character. The big problem is that Aoki probably still thinks A/Z is groundbreaking.
The ending was Inaho x Slaine since the beginning. Except that Inaho would be rejected by the world too, they would only have each others.
At least in this ending, they have people who still care for them, but it seems they just wanted Slaine and Inaho to end up together. Inaho just has to make Slaine gay.
Inaho can still do that. After he gets Slaine to fall for him. Honestly, he was pretty obsessed with him. I didn't take his 'confession' to Hime as romantic but more "we think the same", he's doing what she can't.
The problem with the ending is that Asseylum did nothing to earn it. Lacus, Releena,hell even Marina in 00 all had done something to deserve their endings.
He'll make Slaine emotionally dependent upon him now especially with a savior fetish of his, eventually he'll get him a new identity and move him somewhere.
They really fucked with the shippers, why even have Lemrina fall in love with Slaine if they were going the homo route? Poor Inko too.
That ending sounds so much better.
I think the ending right now balances too much in favor of Inaho, he has friends, his sister, he got the confession.
Slaine has no one.
Lemrina and Dorito don't count because they think he's dead and everyone else who liked him died.
I can't see Inaho doing anything too crazy because of Yuki, now if she got married then I can see him doing something rash like that. Well, thinking about it I could see him doing something rash even with Yuki around. He did break Book out of prison and risked getting in trouble for treason then.
Inaho always does rash shit without giving a fuck. He did it for Muh Seylum and now he'll be Muh Slaine.
Same with the CD drama, with Slaine around, he really doesn't give a shit about the princess and he's all over Slaine instead.
The problem is that they have close to nothing when it comes to actual time together on-screen.
I don't mind a yaoi pair, but this isn't even as developed as Kira/Athrun nor Suzaku/Lelouch
>forgetting darzana x marito and slaine x lemrina
Fuck Inaho's boner for Slaine, slaving him away from her.
They really failed in that respect, would have been better to have had Slaine on the Deucalion for a while and maybe have Saazbaum crash into it and run off with him or something. The two needed interaction.
>– after a rampage that no one else can keep up with, the isolated Slaine and Inaho fall to Earth, where the two, now ostracised by the world, live quietly in a corner of Earth. We had that kind of idea for the ending. The two of them falling to Earth like a shooting star gives an impression of being reborn.
This was the original ending.
True, and I really wanted Silfy to become his girlfriend after that.
What Argevollen had in characters and character development, it lost in animation. Those slow-ass walking tanks were too terrible to watch.
He's being smart in taking advantage of the free mental health care. Taking care of a suicidal Slaine by himself in probably the middle of nowhere would have been difficult. Get him mentally healthy, sneak him out, and then hide him in some remote location.
Because if the group of good guys is one billion highly trained and armed soldiers with years of experience, and a group of high school kids, you better hope you're one of the high school kids.
Have you never even watched anime or played a JRPG?
>The two of them falling to Earth like a shooting star gives an impression of being reborn
Every time Tomino made a Gundam he put a reentry sequence. Every time he made sure to tell us that reentry is not a fucking joke. Here they grab each other's hand and simply assume that it's gonna be alright.
The guys who made this are retards with no experience in life beyond watching animu.
>plan gay ending but don't go through with it
why is Japan so cowardly? they even said the gay marriage proposal ending in samflam wasn't gay either
Wonder if Aoki has read a lot of CLAMP, losing an eye means love with them.
>The two of them falling to Earth like a shooting star gives an impression of being reborn.
Read the thread, original ending was Slaine and Inaho living in the middle nowhere together after being "reborn". It was always going to be a gay end, I feel sorry for Lemrina and Inko. Maybe they'll hook up?
Lemons disappeared forever, Inko is now part of Calm's harem. Accept the truth.
Is there a proper term for a main character whose endeavors will always succeed, and for whom nothing can possibly go bad?
Among friends, I've referred to this trope as "Rurouni Kenshin Syndrome"
If they had gone through with it on screen instead of having us imagining it happening after Slaine doesn't want to kill himself, yes. A true homo ending would have been memorable.
Honestly, I have a much easier time imagining Inaho and Slaine becoming old geezer heterosexual life partners with each other. Those old guys who have always lived together and split the chores and enjoy retirement in the garden. Sometimes, when the weather's nice, they'll go out on a stroll in the park.
It's too much to imagine either of them sticking anything into the other.
She can get Lemrina or Nina, Nina's already pretty gay for her.
I can picture Inaho thanks to his inexplicable hard on for Slaine and his behavior in the Aldnoah High School (he acted around Slaine as he did with the princess, no, he acted more protective than that with Slaine), while Slaine is just forced into homosexuality after his experience of rape and sodomy.
Inaho's going to have his work cut out for him with Slaine, with Inaho I can see him swinging either way given his personality but Slaine will have to fall in love to do anything. Getting him to stop being depresssed is going to be enough of an issue.
Other people watched it, but it never pandered to them. That's why it was never going to surpass Gundam.
Why was SEED so popular in Japan despite having a pile of shit for a plot? Because it successfully pandered to waifufags, hetfags, and yaoifags equally.
Since Aoki said Slaine needed to pay for his crimes, I guess putting him in prison for a while was his way of saying he wouldn't get away for free. It kind of contradicts him being reborn if he still has to do that though, guess he'll be let out of prison after he is mentally stable then. Maybe his real crime was wanting to die?
Slaine will accept Inaho now because he knows Asseylum had asked him to save him, his savior fetish will transfer to him now that he knows it had been stamped with approval from Hime-sama.
So much this. All A-1 needed to do was pair up Asseylum with another MC and watch the Sales skyrocket. They tried so hard to not be Gundam SEED by going completely in the other direction, never striking a balance and got what they deserved.
TLDR; A-1 HAS NO GUTS
He answered to a comment that complained why Slaine didn't get a happy ending and he said because he had to pay for his sins, but from now on his new life starts.
I don't think he implies he has to be in jail. He implies before the "reborn" feature, he was paying for his sins then he starts over. He just hates to convey shit outside of symbolism.
So you got those three birds instead.
The stockholm syndrome will get to him eventually.
Aoki confirmed there was no romance in cour 1. Ass and Eggs relationship was never romantic of nature. It was of kinship, he understood and shared her feelings. Like Slaine understood Sauce, but that didn't mean he wanted to fuck him.
That seems to be the impression I got from the tweets? That those birds were mean to imply Slaine's future full of happiness. He has the problem he tries to be 'artistic' and relies on ambiguous symbolic visuals for something the viewers wanted resolution and pay off.
The ride never ends
Everyone working on the show were either gay or very gay friendly, this isn't surprising.
It always seemed pretty shoujo, the yaoi hints included.
Is Shimura done with A/Z now?
It doesn't have to be this pretentious. All that big talk about making a franchise out of this? Well they threw it all away.
So what do we take of this? That peace is achievable through becoming homo!? Good Grief.
Since the beginning they wanted to make as Inaho = Earth and Slaine = Mars, but they fucked up the entire theme and delivered a shit ending.
The original ending makes sense to the theme. This ending didn't because it was born of a schizo plot and twists.
>mfw the aldnoah highschool AU becomes so popular it gets an anime
>mfw art direction by Shimura
>mfw a shitty mech anime ends up spawning one of the most beloved high school slice of life series ever
The only plot that is viable, given Aoki's gross incompetence is fucking Clancain declaring war and taking Asseylum prisoner.
Only thing that could save it is Lemrina doing CQC
Slaine already the mc
againbut at least they aren't disguising the homo and had him interact with Eggs since the beginning.
He bumps into him in his way to school and has a seat next to him assigned by the teacher. That's already true love by SOL standards.
There were Counts not listening to Asseylum, the feudal system is still in place, and Lemrina has bound to be furious given what happened. They have plenty they could work with if they wanted to.
Inaho is really gay for Slaine in the cd drama. And all in the second cour.
The "OP scene" with Inaho and Slaine reaching out for a light and fall to Earth was actually Inaho reaches out for Slaine to fall to Earth with him.
As they should have. Asshime ruined the show.
>Slaine gives up all his plans for Vers for her
>Inaho almost dies 2-3 times for her
>she learns nothing, does nothing, yet brings out magical peace ending
In A/Z Slaine's adoration is focussed around Princess Asseylum whereas Mika's obsession in OnS is focussed almost entirely around Yuu so objectively at least one is gayer than the other.
He said personally, he would choose Inko and Miuna. His own preferences, not the character's he voiced.
>forgot all the threads why this "peace" ending is depressing and precarious at best
Status quo feudal Vers, UFE Earth? Check.
Vers dependence on Earth, but Earth's not needing Vers? Check.
Slaine scapegoating, alive and may be used as possible anti-Vers propaganda? Check.
Aldnoah now on Earth; possibility of reverse engineering or bypassing the activation rights? Check.
Rogue counts? Check.
Fertile ground for another war in a generation or so.
I'm not talking about Slaine, but Inaho. Even the Aldnoah AU keeps Slaine's shit taste about muh Asshime, but Inaho in there is 100% focused on Slainebowl. I'm saying Inaho's not the problem with the pairing, Slaine is.
