Aldnoah.Zero 2nd Season

The year is 2016— a year and a half after the assassination of Princess Asseylum. Despite his status as a Terran, Slaine has been granted the title of Mars Knight, is now served by his own personal subordinate, and has been taking part in battles against the United Forces of Earth. Meanwhile on Earth, the Deucalion is finishing up its repairs as, one by one, the ship’s former crew members return in order to proceed to a new battlefront.

P.S This is a review on the anime as a whole and is not based only on season 2, there are SPOILERS you have been warned. Story-  I have heard many people complain about the story being too generic and uninteresting and I have to disagree. War, war can be told in many ways and at some point these tales might cross over yet this does not make it generic. I quite enjoyed the idea of a group of people who believed that they were far better than the common Terran leaving to Mars after the discovery of a new source of power and only returing to wage war over resources. The plot is well thoughtout and tries to deliever a mature story although it can be lacking. Not much is known about the Marsian homeland except for the fact that they have advanced technology and a shortage of resources. It would have done the plot well to explore Mars a little bit more to give us, the viewers a greater understanding of the Marsians instead of what we came to see them as (greedy, pompous bastards). Is this a major factor in the story? Not really although it does affect the series overall as it could have used a tad more development. Animation- There is not much to say about the animation other than the fact that it was beautiful, if there is one regret I have it would be some of the space scenes as they did lack that finesse the rest of the animation had. Other than that it was a real gem. Sound- Know I am sure there is no one that will disagree that the music is what truely placed this anime upon a pedestal. I had high expectations coming into this considering it was Hiroyuki Sawano composing, the man that gave us the sound for Attack on Titan, Blue Exorcist and kill la kill to name a few. I can definently say I was not let down and I am sure you won't be either. Characters- The characters without a doubt was the weakest part of the whole anime, there was a lot of wasted potential I must agree. Character growth was largely missing, back stories were cut short to suit the length of the anime and this caused the characters to suffer a lack of development. Some of the characters became very generic due to this and caused you to distance yourself as you think 'I have seen this before.' Yet some held a dim light of hope that kept this section (Characters) afloat. These characters that held this dim light I can only believe would have made outstanding characters given a bit more time. Its just that with this short amount of time it becomes hard to love a character or love to hate another. Overall- For Olympus knights' first anime I congratgulate them as they did a good job, I for one enjoyed it till the end and was satisfied with the ending. Did I hope that it would go a bit longer? Sure. Yet it didnt and I am not overly hung up about this. Hopefully Olympus knights learn from this endavour and continue to make even better anime. Pros- Music you will love, animation you will enjoy Cons- Lack of character growth, too short

Based off memory. Also, spoilers. Mature language. My review to the first season HERE Aldnoah.Zero's secnd season proved to be well made, however, it's not really what fans wanted. That's okay though. Following the aftermath of the first season, Princess Asseylum is in a coma, Slaine Troyard is a count and Inaho Kaizuka has a mechanical left eye. We go through killing and fighting like the first season with Inaho, but, we're show more from Slaine's perspective and his conquest against the other humans. Indeed, it was a bit different from the first season. Now I personally liked the ending. Asseylum did the right tihng, for her people and for Earth. Inaho did the right thing with Slaine, but that part could have ended a little bit less depressing. So, the story was good, at the least. Animation was once again "You're goin' on a fabulous ride today". The fighting and movement were all done very nicely. The music was pretty good for the most part but personally I didn't love it. The voice acting, like the first season, is done well. I especially like Natsuki Hanae being Inaho in both seasons. I know, a lot of people criticize the Tokyo Ghoul VA's performance in Aldnoah, but I liked it for the most part. In the first season, Slaine was very... human. And Inaho was more machine and logical thinking. In the second season, however, Slaine is more inhuman and psychotic, whereas Inaho is becoming more and more human. It's like, Yin and Yang. There cannot be on without the other- so they change together, in opposite ways, but they do.  LET JUSTICE BE DONE THOUGH THE HEAVENS FALL
