Aldnoah.Zero

July 14, 2014

Like to have some action or mecha sci-fi series in my weekly anime menu, so decided to try “Aldnoah.Zero” since its promotional trailer made it look quite promising.

Last season’s “Sidonia no Kishi” was an excellent sci-fi series, must admit I do not have especially high hopes for “Aldnoah.Zero” from the summer season line-up since it could become yet another mediocre mecha series full of overused elements.

In fact, the first few episodes contain plenty of tried-and-true tropes from this genre and the show did not manage to really pull me in. While the mecha designs were appealing enough and the action quite fluid and well animated, am somewhat conflicted about the character design style and character animation by studios A1 Pictures and Troyca.

Although, with Urobuchi Gen among the writers, this series might surprise after all considering he not only worked on “Puella Magi Madoka Magica” but “Suisei no Gargantia” too, which was a very good yet underrated sci-fi mecha show.

Already have plenty of anime to watch each week, nonetheless decided to keep up with “Aldnoah.Zero” for now since the show does have plenty of potential.
