I'm behind. I only finished episode 7. Thought Slaine and Inaho would be allies.

@takashichea: Stay off any mention of AZ on the internet until you finish, if you haven't been spoiled already.

OT: Spoiler-free summary of Ep 12:

So yeah, they expect me to stay on after killing the best character in the show?

Ep 8-9 or so

Looks like our princess is the battery for our ship. I never thought of virtual simulation used to cure PTSD. That was interesting. Oh, is Inaho going to get a harem.

Shows with PTSD this season:

  • Aldnoah.Zero
  • Sword Art Online

That's all I got.

@DocHaus:

Thanks for the warning. I'm good at dodging spoilers unless I'm in a wiki project with teammates who read the manga ahead of me.

@takashichea: Argevollen might also have a character or two with PTSD, but then again I'm one of the ten people still watching it so who I can't confirm that.

Got this from other sites; Let Justice be done through heavens fall is a line is a line that is seen at the end of the OP and is could actually be connected to a Latin legal phrase. Also the main characters can be be compared to Piso's Justice

@DocHaus:

Finished the anime series. Didn't expect that ending. Gen Urobuchi is a damn good story teller. Shame Gargantia went slice of life mode.

I do watch Argevollen along with Marshal. I don't recall there was a person with PTSD in Argevollen.

Watched that vid. Don't know what's going on. That was pretty weird.

Gen Urobuchi only wrote the first three episodes. Someone else wrote the other episodes

@Wraith:

He did? Thanks for the correction, old friend. I should pay attention to the credits.

Hope you don't mind me asking.

Would you put this show on your top 10 anime series of 2014?

Post by Wraith (293 posts) See mini bio Level 17

Maybe? The year isn't over yet so I have to wait until the fall season is complete. Aldnoah.Zero was extremely entertaining and a lot of people have compared it to a popcorn movie

@Wraith:

Oh yes, I know. I'm currently working on the Fall 2014 Guide right now. Just getting a glimpse of shows for my predictions in the community. It's fun for me to predict and see the surprises.

Hope you vote in December 2014 when we get the Gdocs done.

7 was epic. Say hello to the new ship same as the old ship... er well not exactly. But not predictable at all how the show is playing out. Maybe the slickest world build , design an story progression for me in the mech gene in years. Even those great ones in the last 3 or so years. This seems well put together. So I will happlysecond @Supreme Marvel: praise as well.

Watching this I was wishing http://palladiumbooks.com would do a adaption of this for their rpg pen an paper system like with http://palladium-store.com/1001/category/Robotech.html

Have not read through all of this yet and late to the party on this one but this is the quote I agree with and wanted to show Marshal I do at times like the same shows he does ;). Like the rest of you I predicted the fact the princess wasn't dead (though not that the martians were involved until about half way through second episode) at the end of the first. If I had known at the time it was Madoka (the GRR Martian of anime) at the time I might have thought it was more. I almost wonder if he was trolling with his own reputation there, almost killing the princess in the middle, and then killing her (I don't buy she is STILL alive) in the end. BY FAR the best of this season. Generic in the first episode but then rather than dragging out the is she or isn't she dead through six episodes as a weaker show would do we get right to the yup she is alive and about two shows later characters as well as just us know she is alive, then it moves to the problems with facisim (something much of Japan still has a fascination with so something they need to remember is bad) and the ending .... oh god ... I should have seen it coming as it was the butcher of anime but damn. Not sure where they go from here - slaine becomes the main character he is somehow related to the royal family? What do we know about him? He has the same yellow hair of the princess, but as far as we know he is a terran and it was his father that came to Mars after he was born (right?). Someone cheated somewhere? His father isn't who he thinks his father is? I give the show props for being unpredictable. A lesser show would have had the princess give the mech to inaho but that is not this show.

Incredibly high marks the butcher has still got it!

And reading your prediction that the mech was going to go to Inaho Marshal - HILARIOUS after seeing the ending. Of course that was what everyone predicted..which is why it didn't happen. I think your lost opportunities is still a good theme. I mean arguably if Inaho had treated slaine more like an ally the ending would have been different. If slaine had trusted his noble (yellow haired one, not that he had any reason to) earlier and not become crazy from torture ending would have been different. And Tak I agree that video was very odd ... but then ever since the 80's I have not found Saturday night live at all funny.

@zaldar: Yes yes lighting strikes a broke clock twice a day or some such! But the real question is have you watched Psyco-Pass yet! If your anime club has not watched it highly recommend season one as a start. Have watched it now 3 times an plan for a 4th!

Problem with this show tho is it actually has to many writers. The core ideas are from one that we know an the show get episodes done by different writers. Pay to close attention an you can see the different styles. Its not quite a anthology like work but its uneven at times. I believe its because to many cooks spoil the soup. Tho spoil it a bit strong of a word for this.

Also.. go watch Psyco-Pass. Heres my last sailing point... its as good as The Secret World.

Post by zaldar (1,298 posts) See mini bio Level 15

Oh I plan on watching psycho pass don't worry ;). Finished from the new world now so have an opening. I wouldn't call Aldonoah zero uneven as I loved every episode. It may be that it surprised me as it started out looking super generic (oh look main character killed NOT in first episode and they are going to act like we shouldn't see it for ten episodes le sigh) and then was not. If I had come into it knowing it was by the Madoka guy I might have had a very different expectation and not been able to look past it, don't know. Next few days will start psycho pass.

Oh and on secret world - found the "mummy" at the hotel and talked to him for awhile HILARIOUS. Haven't done any of his quests yet but plan on doing so still doing all the ones in the city, messed with the Egyptian statues and got into the secret temple...but then died quickly so going back to get better gear. Loving the feel of Egypt so far.

To any here who have no idea what i am talking about GO PLAY SECRET WORLD. Best MMO on the market right now! Just don't expect it to hold your hand ...

@Wraith:

I have no idea if they survive that shoot out. This series is just weird. I thought I like Aldnoah.Zero more than Argevollen, but I end up liking Argevollen more later on because of the ending in season 1.
