Definitely one of the best series this season, hands down. The overall story isn't anything special, very gundam seed like with normal humans on earth and "evolved" humans in space. But still quite good, I'm actually considering putting this on hold for a few eps so I can binge my way through it one weekend. probaly not going to happen though.

Agreed.

My only issue would be that it borrows a bit too many elements of other successful animes (a lot from Gundam of course, but not only. The fight scene music seems to come from Attack on Titan, the Martians reminds me a lot of the Empire folks of Code Geass, etc ...). However, I like how several characters have developed greatly in few episodes and how the story goes (treason, hidden identities, interest conflicts ...). Plus, it's just beautifully animated/drawn.
I also like the fact that for once we don't follow heroes that are uber-smart or powerful, but more like a bunch of survivors.

My favorite of the season so far, though I've yet to see Zankyou no Terror ...

Eh, when you study enough Mythology, you eventually start seeing the same patterns arise in pretty much every story. None of them are different, all just retellings of the Monomyth. Read some Joseph Campbell, pretty amazing stuff.

Otherwise, they did get the composer from Attack On Titan to do the OST for the series, and his style is pretty unique... I can't say I'm not digging it in the more futuristic setting, either.

It's definitely a great show so far... How about that episode 9?

I agree that I really like the main character. So many main characters are the "I will save everyone" idiots that make a lot of stupid decisions but some how win because of the power of being a main character. This guy actually makes level headed decisions for the most part, even though he does have emotions simmering underneath. I put this series on break for a few episodes so going to catch up during the next week

soooooo, how about dat last episode. Talk about unexpected crap happening. One part of me is happy that it didn't end in some generic "and everyone lived happily ever after" ending, the other part of me is like "WTF!!!"

On the plus side, season 2 is coming January 2015, and I have a strong feeling they're going to pull a code gease type thing where all the people we thought were dead are not, at least that's what I'm hoping for. Argh! and this isn't even based off a manga so I can't find out what happened.

On the bright side that mecha combination was very cool, been a while since I've seen one that exciting. And they way Inaho took apart the count was just badass.

yeah. Aldnoah Zero has been mimicking the Code Geass character types since the first few eps.
Spoiler :
Inaho is definitely Lelouch since they both are expert strategists. Slaine is Suzaku since instead of fighting on the side of their nationality, they both fight for a government that thinks they are inferior, they both fight the "Lelouch" character, has a princess as their love interest, and both make a major mistake that causes them to temporarily go crazy. Princess Asseylum is Princess Euphenia with a small amount of C.C. thrown in. Rayet is Kallen since they both choose to fight for the loosing team out of anger even though they could fit in with either side (since Kallen was half Britanian and Rayet is a martian). And Cruhteo is Jerimiah since they both are extremely loyal and are presumed dead in the first season but Jeramiah comes back in the 2nd season on the opposing side. (holding out hope that Cruhteo is still alive because its kinda messed up that he wold die the moment that he realizes that he's fighting on wrong side.
And this is definitely the best Season 1 cliffhanger that I've seen since the season 1 cliffhanger of Code Geass. The wind blowing during the credits only amplified the numbness that the ending left. Cant wait till January

Someone on MAL put it quite simply:

I don't think I enjoyed this anime as much as a lot of people did, possibly because I felt there was a lack of background on the main character for me to really believe him as a character, and actually liking him. It also felt weird to me that higher ups were taking in his strategies like he was some sort of veteran commander or something, but that's just me...I felt more drawn to Slaine, (despite the apparent hate for him for some reason?) as the main character @.@.

It kinda feels like an episode short, as the ending seems a bit rushed.
Spoiler :
I mean, why the hell didn't Saazbaum kill the princess when she was about to jump out of the ship? Or at least made to where they couldn't control where the ship was going to crash land? it feels like he really dropped the ball at the end, but hey at least he shot the princess and also made Slaine shoot Inaho, I guess. Though I wouldn't be surprised if the princess, Saazbaum, and Inaho somehow survived (though I really doubt Inaho did, or Saazbaum for that matter).

Also it was really annoying how after Slaine was released he just kinda conveniently stumbled upon the princess with hardly any effort and only for her to be shot in front of him. It's as if he was only there to witness it so he would have some sort of excuse to shoot Inaho. I dunno.
I think I would only check out the second season if they touch upon how/why the moon blew up and how the technology they found made them so advanced. At this point I don't really care who may or may not have survived.
