One week has passed. IT’S NOT A SPOILER ANYMORE
20/9 happy belated birthday Princess Asseylum! There’s a bright future ahead of you!
"So this is how the world ends, not with a bang but with a whimper."
The anime’s ending wasn’t that big of a shocker to me. Anyone who had played through Call Of Duty’s Modern Warfare series should already know what to expect in how the series wraps up its Season 1 finale.
I still enjoyed it nonetheless and I look forward for the next season of Aldnoah Zero in three months time.
What will be in the next season of Aldnoah Zero? Counter-invasion by the UFE? More Martian reprisals? Or someone getting the Alex Murphy treatment?
1. I realized there’s this whole “Super Robot VS Real Robot” thing that’s been going on in AZ. In general, Martian Cataphracts are the “Super Robot” with their overpowered attacks and exclusive one-off design, while Earth Cataphracts are plausibly built “Real Robot” which are as general purpose and widespread as your everyday Toyota.
When the two are pitted together, it’s obvious that Martian “Super Robots” have the overwhelming upper hand, able to tear apart dozens of Earth “Real Robots” with relative ease as the latter struggle with conventional tactics versus an unconventional enemy with unique armaments. Unfortunately, the Martian “Super Robots” are forcing their machines to operate under the bounded logic that dictates Earth’s “Real Robot”; that no machine is perfect and there will always be vulnerable gaps in their own advantages in which a clever tactician who thinks outside the box could notice and exploit.
Ultimately, Martian Cataphracts are overeliant on their technology, while Earth Cataphracts are overeliant on textbook military tactics.
2. I noticed that the ending narrator for this episode is Yuki Kaizuka. I wonder why….
3. A confused Terran and a confused Martian: Slaine and Rayet would make for an unusual duo if they choose to team up.
Anyone who thought that doing an image search of Jibril on Google will net you the face of the angel messenger of God would be in for a surprise.
