Back in summer 2014: “OH YEAH!! I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS SHOW!!! LOOKS EPIC AS FUCK!!”
Now in winter 2015 after seeing the first season and thinking about it for a while: “Goddamn, I hate you and you’re gonna suck this season. I know it.”
This….unfortunately…..is ALDNOAH.Zero Season 2. Ugh.

Plot Summary: Seeking for revenge, Count Saazbaum, a Martian, attacked the Earth. Later on, the war between the Terrans and Martians ended with Earth’s Terrans gaining the victory. However, nineteen months later, the battle between them continues. Martians still continues to invade the Earth and the Terrans to protect it.
First thoughts: I……AM……NOT……PLEASED……AT……ALL!!! What the fuck happened to this show? It has some promise and good ideas in the first 3 episodes of the first season. Then I looked up some info and rest of the show was written by the guy who wrote Boku no Pico. Yeah, you heard me. The series composer wrote that show and boy, the first episode is full of bullshit from how Inaho survived that gunshot TO THE HEAD and now has an bionic eye….still has no emotional traits though, Asseylum still somewhat alive and now she has a sister named Lemrina that we didn’t know about earlier.
Oh yeah, did I mention how stupid these names are? AGAIN.
And I thought the writing to Valvrave was horseshit and yet the only saving grace(s) the show got is either Slaine and how better-written of a character he is, the music is a nice touch from Hiroyuki Sawano, there’s no denying that about it and the animation is OK at best but not outstanding as some people would put it.
As for the other characters, they’re fine but Inaho is the worst. I don’t get the hate for Slaine yet Inaho gets all the love for being the same emotionless and boring character that I find to be in the same league as Kirito and whatever that guy is from Mahouka as male-fantasy characters with no interesting personality traits. Also, the writing felt like a 6th grader hopped up on Mountain Dew and Taco Bell wrote this shit and handed it off to one of his friends and they are just as sloppy as he is.
Gen Urobuchi, you create a lot of good ideas for shows and one time, you did handed one off to someone in Gargantia and yet that one is still good. This and Psycho-Pass 2…..bruh, you need to write your own shit next time.
As much as I don’t want to continue with this….I’m going with MARATHON. I got too many things playing on Saturday anyway. I dropped World Trigger for another time and SMC is only bi-(or tri) weekly. I don’t need another bad show on that day.
And until then, this is MAK2.0 aka the Blue Hybrid, saying Fuck Inaho and his bland ass.
