  • Some nice music, interesting story, but execution is weak in places
    I got drawn in by the music. A lot of the early episodes felt really awkward/infuriating with lots of unnatural exposition (someone alone in a mech cockpit talking to themselves?) and characters repeating their unreasonable feelings at every possible moment making them dislikeable (
    ). Fortunately that tails off, especially in the second half. I would have ...

  • Space battle and robot with power.
    ldnoah.Zero follows the mecha genre in more of a 'super robot' format than the 'real robot' format due to the mysticism of Aldnoah technology. As for the themes of the show, it attempts to highlight how the hate and obsession of what others have, as well as prejudice, can lead to the loss of many human and martian lives. The show also dabbles into the characters feelings of what the war personally ...

    Good animation and that's about it
    Disclaimer: I've watched only until ep 13 before abandoning.

    Starts out pretty good. Characters are interesting (yes, even the MC who fails at life but whose worst flaw socially means his greatest strength tactcally, namely his lack of feelings) and their motivations start out as making sense. (Note that "start out"). Soundtrack is facepalmingly cheesy when the Moments of Epic happen, but it's ...

    A Rebuke Against Negative Reviews (slight spoilers)
    I've seen some reviews that say the main character is boring, the plot/structure is contrived etc. To those reviews, I say they've misunderstood characters and their purpose within the show and as character archetypes.
    Yes, the main character doesn't seem as emotional as the others, but he uses his strengths to put himself at risk to defend his friends and in doing so is creating emotions that ...

    A mature Gundam like
    So, it lost 2 stars of 5 possible because:
    1) blatant copy of Gundam plots, but with a more serious twist... although, like Gundam, people will change teams for the most stupid reasons
    2) the ending... although it might be explained by politics, it just makes the drive of the characters absolutely stupid! Sometimes characters act out of love, others they make the most rational decisions with a ...

    she needed to marry the person who truly loved her
    at the end episodes i thought that the emperour/princess for not marrying the Person who loved her bot got married to a stranger and the person who she loved loved her back and it would be good if they wanted peace between earth and mars she should of stayed true to the person who loved her.

    Formulaic and Contrived
    If someone were to say this is a Clone of Gundam one could understand the sentiment however what sets it apart is it's inferiority. The overall plot is very contrived and some moments seem forced just to push the show in a particular direction with no regard to cohesiveness.

    The lack of character depth and the descent into the usual tropes has resulted in a rather predictable and formulaic ...

    Puzzle based combat!
    I love this kind of thing! The result of every fight is determined not by power and will, but by using logic to work out how a Mech works and how to exploit it's weakness. I don't mean a weakness just put in there to be exploited like the Death Star's vent, but things which make sense like, a mech with a super long range laser can only fire in straight lines, but a projectile will drop over time. ...

    Let justice be done to A/Z
    I found this anime to be very smooth with a very complicated plot in the surface but we all know how simple it all concluded. Personally, I really enjoyed it and it's definitely a great original (for those who still don't know, this anime is not based on any manga, light novel or video game). The music is epic, I couldn't stop myself from singing the voice tracks every time they appeared >-< ...

    Weirdly disappointing...
    I love Gundam to bits, any half decent mecha anime usually gets me going, and this looked to be a masterpiece.

    So why don't I love it?

    Well let's start with what I DID love: The MECHS! These are some of the best looking mechs I've ever seen from both a design standpoint, and also from their animation. This extends in the the mecha fight scenes too, which are wonderfully choreographed and ...
