Aldnoah.Zero #10 — I Made This Powerpoint Just For You!

September 6th, 2014


Thanks, Creepy Uncle!


I don’t know what the silliest part of the first half was. There’s a good case for the CPR after crashing, but I guess that only really violates suspension of disbelief if you know anything medical or don’t stop to wonder how everyone is teleporting straight into the girl’s shower. Someone… should probably look into that. Then there’s the princess being the world’s most special girl once again and appealing to Angsty with her specialness and forgiveness and *retch*. But then we also have Eggman, displaying his ninja fighting skills to sneak up on and disarm her since there’s nothing he can’t do. I feel a bit spoiled for choice, and yet if we look back on those 12 minutes stretching to the strangling and what it accomplished, I have no idea. Angsty was more or less just a hanger on for the first nine episodes, so… now she’s a hanger on in prison? The princess now realizes that not everyone likes her but has learned that she just needs to be extra extra specialier?

After that, we shift gears and get to listen to the antagonist seduce a little boy drone on about a history lesson while the Boytoy just stands there and gapes. Ha ha! I bet you thought they forgot the title of the episode! It was about three minutes of stills with voice over before launching into a full blown flashback. So if you’re keeping track, what actually happened this episode was… the cliffhanger from last week was reset, Angsty was tossed in jail, and they landed the ship. Slow down, guys. You’re giving me whiplash with all this excitement. I’m starting to miss seeing the ridiculous robot of the week and them desperately trying to pass it off as new and extra invincible. They hadn’t even gotten to the ultimate robot yet that had none of the vulnerabilities of any of the other ones. A submarine. Dah dah daaaaaaaaaah!

    So they’ve gone back in time or something?

    • Aroduc says:

      Nah. Just found one of the Soviet’s many long-abandoned spaceship docks which is still fully functional after being tagged by USSR teenagers.

    • anon says:

      Your a silly one, as if they follow our real Timeline so far…

  • Sanjuro says:

    Don’t they have keys on Mars. Shooting those handcuffs was a very dangerous thing to do. I don’t approve. If I didn’t dislike that guy before I jolly well don’t like him now.

  • algorithm says:

    Wait, so that girl in the high-tech mech is toasted but PTSD is fine despite wearing just a helmet?

  • Haba says:

    This episode pretty much confirms a certain theory about the origins of a certain character. Namely their mother…

    15 years ago… 15 year old characters… It couldn’t be that obvious, now could it? -_-
