Is it to obvious to suggest, haven't seen anyone mention it, but the assassination attempt was clearly carried out one of the Orbital Knights (by proxy), right?


I forgot who the Orbital Knights were. They're Martians right? Then the whole thing was set up so they could make it look like the Terrans attacked the princess, but really it was the Martians being asswipes and they just wanted an excuse to attack Earth.

from what I understood there are 37 Clans of Martians orbiting Earth. Each one resides in a "Castle" and is lead by a single Orbital Knight. They are all operated independently, seeing as at the end of the episode only 19 of the 37 had dropped

I'm telling you guys, you should have watched it on Daisuki!!!!! That should always be your backup if CR is going haywire (for Aniplex shows at least).


I'd have loved to but Daisuki doesn't stream it to Denmark i fear. It only works as a backup for SAO II for me anyways (and that was a great episode too btw)


Awww crap I forgot about that. Well, JeremyK9880 brought up a good idea: Look at through an Xbox or PlayStation (if you have one).


I do not. Well all i can hope for is that crunchyroll brings backup power for next saturday.

Some of them did. Others did not. The Orbital knights or lords or whatever we can call them are not really as unified. And uptil now it would seem they've been fighting amongst themselves.

The assasination could have been by proxy though, and i imagine the revelation of that could cause some events to play out.

Overall these Lords above are a very interesting bunch. and the whole Feudal nature of it should make for some fascinating developments if utilized correctly.

Okay I finally finished the dang episode. Good ol' Crunchy servers. First time that's happened for me in a while.

Basically,

this show is the bomb, so far.

What sucks for the good guys (<<apparently) is that the bad guys have the Gundams. Hopefully the blonde MC will Gundamjack one of them and save the day.

I gotcha guys. Thanks for explaining the Knights.

I remember the 37 clans and that they didn't want to go back to Mars even after they gained the technology to do so. I didn't pick up that they were working independently and fighting among themselves. So that means that we may have Aldnoah vs Aldnoah because some of the Knights we team up with Terrans.

If the princess survived then I'm guessing that she'll side with the Terrans and we'll get some fucking awesome mecha battles.

Man the soundtracks for the last 5 minutes were amazing, as expected of Sawano. Especially for that massive explosion from Earthfall at the end!! Did it remind anyone of the nuke from Terminator 2? First thing I thought of lol.

Episode 1

JESUS CHRIST!!!!!!!


That episode was fucking awesome. I love the conflict between Mars and Earth. And the Aldnoah mechs seem pretty sweet. I had a feeling that Asseylum was going to get fucked up, though, I don't think she died. Also Inaho seems pretty sweet, I like his carefree personality and Slaine seems cool. I hope he changes sides and fucks up those Mars bastards.

And poor New Orleans! First a hurricane and now Mars ship wrecking havoc. New Orleans just can't get a break

Also does the guy that hit Slaine the same VA that played as Kotomine from the Fate series? Sounds just like him.


Yes, it was definitely awesome. I like the fact that they juxtapose the daily lives of the "villains and the good guys". It was nice to get to know the princess. At the same because we were introduced to her, you feel slightly sorry for her. Also makes you question whether Slaine and perhaps the 18 other Knights are good guys or not. I definitely did not expect to see death that early in the series. It's a mecha of course, but you've had a princess die and many cities literally being blown up. This is definitely very action packed. I just hope it doesn't turn into a Captain Earth and have tons of deus ex machina and an extremely formulaic and predictable plot line.

I have to say, I'm glad this was just a setup episode for the rest of the show, because it was 100% predictable... but I do have to say, it was still pretty enjoyable and I will definitely continue to watch.

Well, this felt a little like Valvrave, in that i didnt expect much (most likely because of the over saturation of mecha anime in my opinion). However i was blown away by this. Forget SAO, this is my favourite anime of the season so far. My favourite bits of this episode were:

1-The main terran guy (Inoha?) - I completely love his nonchalant attitude when those missiles were coming. I hope he doesnt get really emotional and weak like most male MCs.
2-That New Orleans scene - ...I cant really describe how awesome that was. You could tell Urobuchi was behind the story ><
3-The Music - Perfectly conveys some of the scenes of the first episode, and really makes them memorable.
4-Gen Urobuchi - Nothing to say other than its Gen Urobuchi!

Well i am guessing the Princess survived. There was talk about the power of gods involved. So i'd be deeply surprised if she was really killed off. And i imagine once she gets back Count Cruncy and maybe a few others will rally around her.

Though even then, i suspect some will go at each other almost right off the bat. Since it was hinted that even the initial landfall was essentially a race to be first.

Very Feudal stuff with the King seemingly having limited control here. At least it seems so initially.

Seeing the princess at the start of the episode just screamed martyr...and I was right. That one knight just practically spat out what he wanted. If if it goes the cliche route like I think...

Episode 1

Such promise, as expected from this series! The flow was natural and you can already get an idea of the main casts personalities. S**t will hit the fan alot in this one haha!

You can defs feel the Gen Urobuchi and Ei Aoki vibe is this too, so stark. I wasn't expecting the opening episode to be quite as graphic as it was, which i should have known better haha! But dang when that explosion happened my jaw dropped on the animation and soundtrack (THANK YOU SAWANO!!!!<33333) So awesome! A-1 are looking like a great fit for it so far. My hype level has gone up a lot after this episode and i can't help but feel that this will continue to get better as it goes.

My overall impression was that this will have some deep emotional portions to it with amazing music, story and visuals throughout the entire show. I really hope we aren't let down half way through.

As for characters so far, Slaine looks like he will be pretty cool. Inaho should be as well, but damn who just watches a missile fly by and say calmly that we should get out of here as if they arnt concerned at all hahaha! I'd be like HOLY **** PEACE OUT YO! lol.

The Lieutenant Koichiro is a boss! I cant tell he's gonna be bad ass. And Hime-sama chick was super cute, i doubt she died judging from the way they set her up, but you do never know with Gen.

ALL ABOARD THE HYPE TRAIN!!! TOOT TOOT!
