@takashichea: Since earth in this has one government an the Martians are a empire its nationalism or empire-ism. Um its a ism for sure. Their is a word for it but its escaping me atm. Searches the net for it... imperialism kinda works. But the Martian side see them selves as a " higher race" even tho they are humans to. Dam my 10th grade english usage! Nationalism would fit to.

I got what ya ment but can not find the right word for it atm.

@Marshal Victory:

It's all right. We got the right word in the end. Thanks to you. A mech show with nationalism themes. What is Gen Urobuchi's message? We find out. I didn't feel connected to his message in Gargantia about the young not giving up in the work force message.

@takashichea: Was I get that message is like this... In Gargantia the main character knows his one job as a soldier. He trained for it an its all he knows. He now has to adjust at the end of the series an not be a soldier. He does not give up life because the one thing he knows is gone. He adapts.

So looking at this an say apply collage grads in Japan who can not find jobs in their field. The message is not to give up. Adjust , survive but not to give up. Its not a equal comparison but the moral is the same. Which is not to give up. Then again believe they pick a career path early on in their school years to.

Now on this one not sure how much he had a hand in. It not totally his work if I recall right. A worse what a artist means to convey an how its perceived by people are generally two different things.

Not gonna lie, Aldnoah.Zero has been pretty weak compared to the other anime. Not saying its terrible, but its really meh.

@YotaruVegeta:

Didn't you receive a PM from me and also from the Community Spotlight - July 31 report? I said I will reformat the character page since , an inexperienced wiki editor, removed your Kanji and Romaji from your work without asking you or DocHaus first. It constantly reminds me that new wiki editor these days don't know respect and courtesy. If someone's working on a task, let them finish first. If you are going to change something, ask them first.

Thanks, it will be on this week's community spotlight. I haven't reformat the rest of the character sections with images. Portraits are a bit difficult to make.

Episode 5 has the same action, but it shifts its focus on Slaine. Seeing the difference between Argevollen and how they handle their fights makes it interesting. I do watch both.

6 was ok. But it sets up the "excalibur" magic mech type story line :/

Without a doubt the best new animé. I look forward to watching this more than any other animé this season (minus SAOII).

The characters feel real. You anticipate what a character would do based on other animé shows, and these do things slightly, if not completely different. And I love being surprised by it.

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

On episode 6, got to learn more about the characters, the adults a bit. Slaine joins the fight. Will he be an ally?

After watching 8 it became clear of a over arcing theme. That is missed opportunities. Think about it for a few an how the show has that as a common theme. At least up to 8 it plays into the episodes well.

Slaine's been dealt a really bad hand, but I wonder if he'll take his fallen superior's Aldnoah and use that. He's in the clutches of the Martian conspirators, so who knows if he'll even live long.

Episode 9 shows us how to kill your engine in a bad way. Also the one lord going on about culture.. its not something you can take threw war. True culture can be adopted. But that shows how royal lazy they are. Nothing would could stop them from adapting but their own attitude.

10 was kinda odd. Well odd in alot of ways. So the bad guy gives the other guy a mech? Err not logical when he gives him the chance to flee. Not a strong episode by far.

Was Slaine even given the ability to use Aldnoah power from the emperor like the orbital knights were?

@Wraith: From what I seen in 10 um no. Cause he would have stolen the other mech thats waiting for ahem some one else :/ Unless that was just the story hook to prove the other guy is dead that is.

11 lots of action. To many characters an easy to lose who is who . Tho the drop was neat.
