Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 08
Okay, I personally consider this episode the calm before the storm, even though it was filled with a lot of awesome action. I have a feeling that the action in this episode is going to be nothing compared to the action we’re about to see.
Let’s tackle the action bit first; Inaho and the rest of his friends and colleagues were fighting off two (I think?) mechs. It was difficult. One was invisible and the other was using electricity to defend and attack at the same time. I’m not sure if that was the same mech or even the same battle, but it was pretty darn awesome. I also think it was the first time where Inaho was actually cornered. He usually has a plan and things usually go according to that plan, but now he was getting pushed back badly. It actually made me wonder how he would ever face Slaine if he couldn’t even deal with guys like that.
Anyway, princess Asseylum has awakened and she is starting to remember all sorts of things. The other princess, whom is clearly losing bits and pieces of her sanity, found out that her ‘dear’ sister had disappeared from that container and probably knows that something’s up. Even that handmaid girl called Eddelrittuo is beginning to question it at all as well.
This episode really made me respect Inaho even more, despite the fact that he got pushed back. He let that blonde count go back to his people in order to find out more information about princess Asseylum. It just goes to show how far Inaho plans ahead and how well his plans work out. He took a chance and it seems that that chance is about to pay off.
