OK WAIT NO I GOT YOU. This is coming from my personal opinion but I would say that Aldnoah.Zero is really good so far. Like so far out of this season I would say it’s definitely in my top 5 for most anticipated. Reasons for this include: the characters are all (I don’t want to sound shallow) but the main ones are really cute, created by Gen Urobuchi (who also had a hand in Fate/Zero and Psycho Pass), directed by Ei Aoki (helped in Angel Beats, Blood + and Kara no Kyoukai), and the music is done by Hiroyuki Sawano (he also did Guilty Crown and Shingeki no Kyoujin) and Yuki Kajiura (she did PMMM and SAO). You can read about it on MAL but it doesn’t really give a lot of information about it…Oh here let me give you the summary given on tvtrope’s:
In 1972, the Apollo 17 mission to the moon discovered an alien Hypergate that allowed for instantaneous transport to Mars. A massive effort to colonize Mars soon followed, and the first explorers and settlers quickly discovered lost technology there dubbed “Aldnoah” that allowed them to become self-sufficient. Eventually, they declared independence as the Holy VERS Empire, named after their expedition’s leader Rayregalia Vers Rayvers. In 1999, a war broke out between the Holy VERS Empire and United Earth, ending with a victory for VERS after the Hypergate on the moon overloaded and blew the celestial body in half, cutting off all access to Mars and causing massive destruction across the Earth thanks to major population centers being heavily damaged by environmental shifts and the falling shards of the moon.
It is now 2014, fifteen years after the devastating events of “Heaven’s Fall.” The VERS soldiers who were left behind after the Hypergate’s destruction now live in the remains of the moon and massive space stations in orbit between Earth and the moon, forming themselves into 37 clans. Only recently has space travel advanced to the point where craft are able to reach Mars from Earth, and tensions remain extremely high between Earth and the Holy VERS Empire. Eventually a full scale invasion of Earth begins.
But honestly, I would highly recommend that you go and check it out yourself. (You should also check out the opening!)
THINGS I LIKE
- when people use my name in conversation
- when people say “this reminded me of you!”
- when people remember little things i say/do
- when people genuinely thank me for things i’ve done for them
- when i think of the same thing at the same time as someone else and you give each other the look
when someone associates you with a character you really really love it’s like the best feeling in the world everyone go home
