Just finished Aldnoah.zero. Feeling major let downs. The first 12 episodes only took me about 2 days to watch. The other 12 took about 7 months. Shows how I felt about it. I kept hearing that is was as close to Gundam that wasn't Gundam. It got close at some points but it sure wasn't a Gundam type anime in the end.
1 The main characters were bland
2 the world this anime took place in was some thing I wanted to explore but it didn't show off any of it besides the broken moon that just looked the same every time it was shown
3 technology was explained some to make it almost believable at first but then just hand waves away all the impossible things it does later in the series
4 besides a few Earth mechas in the beginning no mecha was shown off to it's full existent and each fight was a monster of the week instead of showing advances in tactics and technology
5 lots of side characters had lives of their own and could have been like able but most to all side stories they had were left half finished or just untouched
6 little talking robot eye buddy really!!!!!??????
7 Inaho is the biggest Gary Stu EVER! No one could do anything without his okay and hand holding
8 good guys in any Gundam lost from time to time but the "good guys" here just keep pulling out win after win from start to end
This show wanted to be an opera but it didn't have character and the drama to go with it.
The animation was nice but this is one anime I will not speak fondly of.
