Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 07

Incredible plot twist! We all knew that this was going to happen sooner or later, but it’s actually quite interesting that it happened now. Slaine is about to marry an imposter princess in order to obtain more power and authority. I wonder what’s going to happen.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.09_[2015.02.22_23.51.50]So we all know about that little princess and her unfortunate predicament. She has been locked up in that tube for god only knows how long and she finally opened her eyes again after her sister nearly killed her last week. Yes, this is good news in general, but this could turn out to be pretty bad for Slaine. After all, he rescued her from earth and brought her to that facility in order to try and save her life, which he seems to have done quite well. Now he has to make sure she stays quiet by making sure she doesn’t find out about what’s going on right now.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.28_[2015.02.22_23.52.15]Will Slaine call off that wedding now that his beloved princess has awakened? Doubt it. He cares for that princess quite a lot. He would do anything to ensure her safety. Gaining more and more power by uniting all the people from Vers and gaining control of them would pretty much give him enough power to take the fight back to earth once more.

Slaine simply finds himself in a tough spot. He has to juggle two princess whilst taking control of an entire space army. To top that all off; he has Inaho to worry about. Inaho has been the only one so far that has been able to keep up with him. I am really curious to see how he will deal with all of that without losing face.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 06

Another highly anticipated Aldnoah Zero episode and I noticed that a lot of fans were very disappointed. I really wonder why. I thought that this outcome was rather predictable. Why act disappointed when you could’ve already known that it was going to turn out this way?

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.11_[2015.02.15_23.51.04]So Inaho decided to take on another high-end mech with the help of his fellow soldiers. They decided, because the enemy had a really powerful weapon, a long-ranged laser beam, to act as decoys so that their battle ship can shoot it from afar. It was quite ingenious because that guy’s beam could only go on a straight line without curbing. Big shells, because of gravity, tend to decent a little when they have to travel a long way. All that was left is to make the enemy stand on one spot and to let the ship know the right coordinates and voilà. You have yourself an easy target.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.54_[2015.02.15_23.51.21]There is no point in calling Inaho a genius. He just is when it comes to combat. The real question is if he’s better than Slaine, because damn… Slaine foresaw his opponents moves in that one on one battle, killed him, took his mech and pretty much all of his assets. Slaine keeps growing in power whilst Inaho is still trying to get rid of enemy mechs back on earth. Yeah, he may have an informant amongst them, but he has yet to hear from him. In fact, we don’t even know if he made it back yet. Everything seems to be going great for Slaine and poorly for Inaho, so I am kind of curious to know how they are going to reverse these roles. We already know that Inaho is going to be the victory, surely…

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 05

This is becoming more and more interesting. Yeah, I still don’t understand how Slaine thinks or what his objective is, but all that seems insignificant compared to how Inaho is doing things. That guy truly is a born tactician.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.53_[2015.02.08_23.37.25]So Inaho decided that he’d want to know a little bit more about the missing princess and about Slaine’s true objectives. He himself can’t just go to outer-space and knock on their door in the hope that they will answer some of his questions. Instead, he spoke to one of the prisoners from outer-space. He informed him about what has happened and about what truly was going on. He was reluctant to believe it at first, but I am guessing that part of him chose to believe what Inaho told him about Slaine and the real princess, seeing as he ultimately agreed to help Inaho find out more about Slaine and the princess.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.51_[2015.02.08_23.37.46]And Slaine? The guy has no idea that Inaho has an informant like that. He is worried about other people with high ranks that are now trying to undermine his new-found authority. He has no time to be worried about informants and other people that might know the truth about what happened. He is too busy trying to maintain his position of power.

What will happen? Well, Slaine will win this upcoming one-on-one, of course. No doubt in my mind about that. I’m more curious about the guy that Inaho let go. What kind of information will he uncover about Slaine? And will he actually be able to reach the princess? The story has truly become very interesting now.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 04

I honestly don’t get this anymore. This has become a little too complicated due to recent events. These twists make things a lot harder to understand. I thought I finally understood what I could expect from Aldnoah Zero, but this episode ruined that.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.41_[2015.02.01_23.41.09]So Slaine was showing off his skills again by destroying base after base, ship after ship, mech after mech. It doesn’t look like he cares about other people. He has an objective in his head and he will stop at nothing to achieve it from the looks of things. I thought I finally understood him, but I am starting to think that I was wrong.

At first I thought he was gaining more and more power in order to secure princess Asseylum’s wellbeing, but now it doesn’t look that way anymore. He already has a position of power. Why kill more and more people at this point? Is it really just to prove he’s not a traitor, or…? I just cannot understand that character.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.47_[2015.02.01_23.41.23]Inaho I can understand. He will do anything in order to ensure the safety of his friends and family. He cares about them and doesn’t mind fighting off advanced mechs that outclass his own. He just uses his head and always figures out a way to end up on top. It makes him sound predictable, and some may say that he is because he has people that he wants to protect, but I honestly think that that’s not the case. Inaho can be very unpredictable, especially when he’s fighting against someone. He comes up with the most complicated strategies. There’s just no way that you can predict those.

Aldnoah.Zero 2 episode 03

There we go! This episode pleased a lot of fans, that’s for sure. I remember when the first season ended and a lot of nerds decided to take it upon themselves to troll anime forums about how terrible the ending was. That was funny…

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.17_[2015.01.25_23.24.21]It seems Slaine has planned this all along. He saved that count from getting killed because of a very specific reason. This might be just me reading into it, but I have a feeling I am right. There is simply no way that he could’ve saved his beloved princess on his own. People would’ve just killed him and the princess in order to continue taking over the earth. So, instead of fighting the unbeatable, he played it safe and stuck with them to win their trust and, during this week’s episode, to await an opportunity to seize power for himself. He saw the opportunity when he was declared that man’s adopted son and took it with both hands.

[HorribleSubs] Aldnoah Zero - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.21_[2015.01.25_23.24.41]So yeah, Slaine is now royalty and has control over quite a bit of manpower. Something tells me that this isn’t enough for him and that he will continue this search of his for more power. He already has his beloved princess in one of his facilities and he will continue to protect her until she awakes, which may or may not happen (but probably will).

This little twist? Not entirely surprising. Slaine’s personality is pretty straightforward. I don’t think he would do anything to harm the princess, so it was only a matter of time before we figured out his little plan. I’m actually a little bit more curious to see how Inaho will deal with all of this. I think it’s about time he stopped using a training mech and started using a real mech that’s made specifically for combat.
