Everyone knew this was coming. The first season ended with a cliffhanger and the popularity of Aldnoah.Zero was skyrocketing. It is definitely a great mecha-genre anime that could rank way up there with Gundam and Neon Genesis Evangelion.
The artwork is superb. No doubt about that. The level of detail is incredible, especially on those old mechs. You can actually see the ravages of time on those frames. Not to mention the creativity and uniqueness.
The story is nothing to laugh at either. It’s very interesting and very tense right now. One of the characters that was supposed to be good switched over to help another character that was supposed to die. That made a lot of fans very angry.
I am going to watch this? Definitely. I am going to review this? Possibly. Do I recommend this? Oh, absolutely. I have loved every single episode so far and I am pretty sure that won’t change with season two.
Plot Summary: In 1972, the Apollo 17 mission found a hypergate to Mars on the surface of the moon.
