Can someone refresh my memory please?
Didn't Eldorito get captured and killed?
Didn't Inaho and the princess get killed too?
>inaho is a cyborg now
SOMETHING IN MY PANTS IS GOING TRANS-AM
When people can survive beam sabers rammed through them.
Admit it, Eggfags - asspulls aside, it was pretty awesome when he reappeared.
>18 years old
>stills looks 14
You'd think they'd age him up a bit, did they forget how old he is?
I have yet to see a consensus on how the fuck Inaho gained the Aldnoah power. Was it the Mouth-to-Mouth or the Blood-splatter? Make your mind up, people!
>Seems that Darzana thinks it's the activation factor
But that scene where Inaho is brought in wasn't exclusively from her perspective. Also, if it is the blood, throwing in the resuscitation scene from last season just confuses things and is unnecessary.
Awh nuts, I guess I'm under Martian rule now.
Ah sorry, misinterpreted you. From how he glowed after it went into his mouth it seems it's really the blood, don't know why they brought up the kiss at all. Unless you need to do both? That would be weird though.
>tfw USA is no longer number 1
I bet this invasion would have never succeeded if the moon fragments had wrecked Russia and Asia instead.
tfw aldnoah map
Actually, the closer I look at the map, Ireland appears to have been severely damaged by Heaven's fall and I'd be very surprised if there's anybody still living there.
I wasn't too pissed about Inaho, because they at least tried to have it make sense and appear to be using it as a chance to add another dimension to his very flat character. But Saz being alive is just an asspull of the highest order. I'm still undecided how to feel about Hime, but having another Princess ust conveniently lying around that we'd never heard of before just reeks of bullshit.
>back to life
Saucybaum should've likely died
Inaho could've lived because >9mm
Bullet hits him in the left eye, tears through frontal left brain area, out left side of head/lodged there.
>Princess in a Coma due to space bullshit
Noone died, an important step to coming back to life.
Maybe bad directing? Slaine walking to Saazbaum made even less sense after this episode. They made a point of Yuki noticing Asseylum's blood then having her tear roll through it and go in his mouth.
You had a lot of people hand waving and being happy their favorite is fine. I don't mind Inaho surviving but only a robotic eye? No scar? I hope the comment about him being better at small talk means he'll have some personality changes.
Him surviving the shot isn't really my gripe, it's how convenient it was for him to get Aldnoah, Yuki's tear would land on just the right spot too.
>chance to add another dimension to his very flat character
Normally, you'd use this thing called character development.
Killing off main characters in the last episode just to spark interest in the series, and then reviving them as soon as the second season begins is disgusting, especially when they're not even trying to hide how much of an asspull it was.
Saaz is a tank.
> I don't mind Inaho surviving but only a robotic eye? No scar?
Modern medical tech, bro.
Dude, let's not try and pretend this show is anything better than average. I asked myself before starting season 2 today "Why am I still watching this?".
I know of a few people who have been shot with 9mms and lived.
I also have read of medical cases with people taking things in the head/being shot in the head. a 9mm is a fairly weak gun.
Like I said, the majority of them should've died due to many factors, hardly defending them.
Indeed. I felt saucybaum should've died due to the volume of blood he lost as evidenced by the blood on the wall behind him, the number of shots which likely caused internal damage, and even more bleeding.
Check out all of the other threads, a lot of people were. Some were saying it was because Slaine had poor aim, no his aim was good since he managed to land a shot on a person's head. If he had shit aim he would have aimed for his center body mass. It's plot armor, pure and simple.
I started off wanting to see more of the Martian world/society and how all the mechs work but it just got to the point where I am watching to see what stupid shit they do next. If the royal family can transform, how has this not caused problems before?
So eggs is a cyborg (sorta), has Aldnoah reassuring that he's the only competent man in the squad, and earthlings are still incompetent as fuck and death fodder, and Martians are still cocky as fuck even though they have been getting their ass kicked by an autistic egg lover and his shitty prototype mech?
Glad to see absolutely nothing has changed.
Getting a piece of metal shoved through your brain at high speed doesn't always result in death, you know. I wouldn't say to take a gamble on it happening, but it's not impossible.
I had prepared myself for a fairly shitty second season but this is even worse than I thought it would be. I knew everyone would live so that didn't surprise me, but how they handled pretty much everything else is so cringe-worthy.
At least it'll make for a nice comedy? Maybe?
Your face when?
Hell yeah, humanity!
well, even though it feels like a massive asspull, it's actually a lot more common than you might think to survive being shot in the head. obviously higher caliber rounds have a much higher fatality rate, but there have been many examples in real life of people being shot in the head with a .22 and surviving. some even surviving with little ill effects, afterward, as Inaho has apparently managed.
Just stop watching it if you dislike it so much.
The problem with a ton of /a/ these days is they overhype themselves for shows, or just don't enjoy them as lighthearted shows/whatever. Not everything needs to be serious/looked at with a great deal of scrutiny. I know a lot of shit with >Quality is people nabbing transition frames for the sake of shitposting, but damn.
yea, this was beyond cringe for me. even the martian was all like "sasuga" when he got fucking murdered. the entire point was literally just to show inaho being awesome.
You can also survive getting anally raped by a horse, getting struck by lightning, and having your jaw torn off by a bear.
That doesn't make it likely, though.
If it was one character living through plot armor, it would have been acceptable.
They're three people getting gunned the fuck down, and they ALL live.
On top of that, their "death" served no purpose other than publicity for the show.
It didn't do anything important for the plot.
They actually did this, that was nice.
Season one took place in 2014, so this would be 2016. The official sidearm of Earth also seems to be a Glock, doesn't stovepipe like that Martian shit.
>I wasn't too pissed about Inaho, because they at least tried to have it make sense and appear to be using it as a chance to add another dimension to his very flat character.
If it happened any time other than at the end of a cour, I'd buy it. As it stands, it was cheap melodrama, end of story.
Actually, what concepts will they use next for their mechs?
>yfw Asshime a pilots a mech based on
I have to admit, while I found the first season to be entertaining this episode was really bad. It felt like a midseason recap episode. Also the mecha fight was really awful and was just an excuse to show Inaho.
>Not everything needs to be serious/looked at with a great deal of scrutiny
"Not everything" being anime you like while anime you don't like deserve to have their flaws pointed out.
Point is ,even if the writers have basically stopped caring, the show (at least outwardly) tries to hold this idea that it's a serious war drama. There was a small window of opportunity at the end of S1 to redeem a little bit but all hope of that was completely blown away in the first episode.
>Saaz is alive
>Princess is alive
>Eggs is alive AND more Stu than ever.
>Martians are still retards, at least around eggs.
No, just seems they were gathering the prisoners. That said, fucked the Martians.
It was more of a getting everyone caught up episode and laying the current foundation, they'll get into the real story next week. I'm thinking it won't be long until Asseylum wakes up, she did have a line one of the CMs (it sounded kind of quiet from what I recall).
>Hurr faggot shot in the head didnt die
You know it has to hit the right spot to kill. People automatically dying when shot in the head is just from movies. Also we dont even know if it hit the brain. It could have hit his eye and been on an angled downward trajectory.
And there was plenty of blood splatter on his face for the tear drop to have a wide variety of places to land not to mention that once it lands on his face it either has the set path between his nose and cheek or instantly falls off. Really all she had to do was cry over his nose and gravity and the geometry of his face would have taken care of the rest.
Stop being a faggot.
>It was more of a getting everyone caught up episode
Exactly why it felt like a recap episode even though a lot of the information was new. You know, since recaps are meant to catch people up who haven't been watching. I think it's a pretty poor way to tell a story and a bad way to continue from the previous season's ending.
I like this though, maybe Inaho really is dead and most of him is A.I. now. The plot will thicken as we find out he's more machine than human.
Isn't it sad that he's actually acting more human now that he's a machine?
I must've missed the part where Slaine shot multiple people in the head.
I meant that section more as to /a/ as a whole. I watch all sorts of anime, and when one turns to something someone doesn't like they act like it was just complete shit, when it perhaps just wasn't their cup of tea.
Nothing wrong with executing severe war criminals, anon, and given how partial the Martians are to wiping out civilian populations, it's safe to say that they are all severe war criminals.
Would be interesting, I'd like it if Inaho and Slaine made up first for her sake. Inaho sees that Slaine is still under the delusion she can be saved and pulls the plug for him?
I'm not saying just pretend it's not poorly written if it's poorly written. I'm saying that perhaps people holds everything to high standards and have unrealistic expectations. So when they don't meet those expectations they go and shitpost and flip out over a show, instead of just ignoring it/not watching it.
Are you shitting me?
Are you going to try to convince me about how Saazbaum's survival was probable?
Don't you realize how far your delusions are taking you?
You would defend anything, unless they were shown being torn apart limb by limb.
For the purposes of the plot all that needed to happen was for him to have been disabled, he could have been knocked out, or even simply shot somewhere other than the head.
The writers knowingly decided to have him shot in the head to create suspense for their 1-cour break coming up. The fact that pretty much none of the three "casualties" of the last ep of S1 had any lasting significance on the plot shows they are prioritizing shock value.
Oh wow that only makes it more likely that he survived without any problems. I cant quite remember what the temporal lobe is for but its something to do with emotional memories. He didnt have any of those already.
I'm referring to you saying all the cases were getting shot in the head. As you can see >>119629294
I clearly state Saucybaum should've died, and that the blood he lost was a ton.
But don't you feel for them, anon?
Look at this guys face, he's clearly thinking "I'm not going to get to see next week's anime, am I?"
What "unrealistic" expectations? Ignoring all the "surpass gundam" and Urobuchi nonsense there was definitely potential early on for the series to go places. They had fucked a lot of shit up by the end of S1 and with the first ep of S2 they've already jumped the shark.
Or is simply "not sucking" an unrealistic expectation?
That's what I thought. This was definitely not an episode to look forward to after months of "hype". If anything it felt like a special OVA episode released weeks before the actual first episode just to get people caught up.
More like, if a show is bad (in your opinion), instead of going into the thread of a show which people like and shitposting telling them how SHIT IT IS and HOW CAN YOU LIKE THIS, instead just ignoring the pile of trash, in your mind?
Shows can indeed be bad, but that doesn't make them not worth watching. Same with books.
>The writers knowingly decided to have him shot in the head to create suspense for their 1-cour break coming up.
You gotta step up your game. He needed to be shot in the head so that Slaine would think that he elimated him and to show that slaine really wanted to kill him.
This place is meant for discussion, not just hugboxes.
Your show is not immune to criticism, and people like you being so laughably defensive only makes it more satisfying to criticize.
Again, I mean less of this series and more of /a/ in general. I agree that the original script Urobutchi made was better, and it would be good, but I've enjoyed the show so far regardless of it being less-than-perfect.
"sucking" because of asspulls (how can future-tech and spacemech owners possibly heal this damage?) is a stupid thing to say.
If you perhaps stopped getting so fucking hyped up/unrealistic expectations (>surpassing gundam)
over every series you wouldn't be so cynical you fucking kike.
>On top of that, their "death" served no purpose other than publicity for the show.
>It didn't do anything important for the plot.
Asseylum is in a coma while Slaine is defiling her dream and her name. When she wakes up she will fucking hate him and likely do something completely unpredictable.
Saazbaum's position has been seriously weakened. He was forced into a pact with Slaine, which is bound to go awry when Asseylum wakes up. He's also walking on a cane now, so the bullets did some damage.
Inaho has a cyborg eye, possibly minor brain damage, and was down for the count for 19 months. He also has Aldnoah now thanks to Hime's mini blood transfusion, making him an even more important asset.
>Shows can indeed be bad, but that doesn't make them not worth watching
But that's exactly what you're arguing against. I'm watching an anime I clearly don't think is good but still worth watching and I am discussing said anime on /a/. But in your head apparently calling an anime out on its flaws is "shitposting".
Alright, so whose going to explain this shit?
Discussions involve posts in which you give proper criticism, not shitposting. It, beyond being a fictional futuristic anime, is a fucking show. Not everything has to be hyperrealistic. That's my stance, I think a lot of the asspulls like Saucybaum being alive are stupid, but that doesn't make me go into threads and shitpost.
>The temporal lobes are involved in processing sensory input into derived meanings for the appropriate retention of visual memories, language comprehension, and emotion association
Yeah quite remember isnt that same as the I dont know what Im talking about.
>asspulls (how can future-tech and spacemech owners possibly heal this damage?)
This is the point where you stepped into the full-retard zone.
Your posts are bad enough without you defending said asspulls.
>fucking hyped up/unrealistic expectations (>surpassing gundam)
over every series you wouldn't be so cynical you fucking kike.
Just how angry are you right now?
Launches grenades to have the Mech suck the heat from that area/to heat that area that he's travelling through before he travels there. His mech would freeze but it wasn't cold enough immediately to do so.
pretty calm, really. Glad that a few shows I enjoyed are out right now, and some new shows out are enjoyable as well.
>thinking Future tech and spacemagic BS can heal bodily injuries is being retarded
Indeed, but again, Inaho could realistically survive, Saucybaum not so much, Princess seems like she could still be braindamaged and got shot near the kidney so sure, could technically be alive.
>needed to be shot in the head
No, he didn't. Could have just as easily put a few rounds in his back and left him to bleed out. They could have even kept the headshot but gave indication that he survived during the episode so S2 wouldn't seem like as much of an asspull.
the mech sucks heat from the air gradually over time
Eggs made a path of hot air by using grenade explosions, and walked along that path. His mech didn't freeze because it was never in the freezing air long enough to, because it kept walking into the hot air created by the explosions.
The bullets were curving around the mech because they got so cold while traveling through the ice field that they were in low-kelvin wonky physics land by he time they reached their target. Solution was to bring the gun closer to mech, so that the bullets wouldn't have time to cool.
Hnnngh. What, no retort?
Fuck no, fuck that cunts.
Do you even know what this word means?
But holy shit son, people are giving out fair criticism.
You'll disregard anything as being "shitposting" if it's saying anything bad about your favorite show.
However, it doesn't work that way.
>Not everything has to be hyperrealistic.
It has nothing to do with being "realistic". Hell, it might be more realistic for them to survive since they might have much more advance medicine in the future. It's still bad storytelling to build up to a climax where it appears the main characters are dead and then in the very next episode just going "lol nope advance medicine brings them back". It's a cheap writing tactic to draw in viewers and then slap them in the face. If it's so easy to "resurrect" people from the dead in your universe, don't treat a characters death like a shocking and important event. And if their death is shocking and important then make their "resurrection" have equal importance.
Or they just wanted an excuse to give him a robotic eye. I bet it will factor in for him being able to land a blow on Tharsis, he'll have to close his real eye and use the robotic one because of some trick Tharsis uses to fool people's eyes.
They're going to subvert it by having her actually hook up with a guy by the end of the series.
And then she'll walk in on her boyfriend and the commander going at it, and the commander will just turn to her and bust out the joke again.
He literally stood there for like 10 seconds while Mr. Freeze complimented him. The others were shown to have their guns jam and this kats shut down from farther away.
Not even close
And I suppose I meant hyper-realistic, in the frame of very very realistic.
Indeed, very poor writing, shame Urobutchi's script wasn't used.
I thought it was more a nod to "not much has changed" or we're back to where we were sort of thing.
All we've seen is him protect some transports, he can't really stop what Saazbaum and them are doing. If he act out what do you think will happen to him? His whole deal to save her will get thrown out the window. Saazbaum is now in the position of authority, Slaine only had the upper hand when he initially saved him.
I didn't watch S1 two seasons ago and was thinking about picking this up. I don't particularly care about spoilers but how does this whole "characters not being dead" pan out for someone who doesn't have the season gap between S1 and S2?
Still worth watching?
I thought that actually indicated that he could actually show little bit of feelings this season. He'll in this ep he made more faces than in season 1 altogether. Maybe he won't be such an autismmeister now.
I imagine its for the same reasons they insist on sending out their one-of-a-kind mechs without any support whatsoever, despite aready having lost most of them to a single spastic satsuma.
They're in space, right? What wind are they talking about?
Basically they repeatedly end episodes on the cliffhanger of "CHARACTER X IS DEAD" and then reneg immediately when the next episode starts. They do this at the end of S1 by 'killing off' the main character and his waifu, only to immediately bring both back in the first episode of S2.
Characters dying but not really is basically the only thing that moves the plot forward. One character has 'died' 3 times now. It's just shitty writing.
>Enemy Kat charging straight at me
>He won't get close, he should freeze instantly
>Oh shit, he's firing explosives to keep himself from freezing
>Maybe I should move backwards so that he'll run out before he reaches me?
>I'll just stand still.
>There's no way some shitty Terran can travel all the way close when he's already covered half the distance to reach me.
Because the mechs powers are salvaged alien technology. The martians don't actually understand the technology, they just stick it in a robot. Each aldnoah drive has its own unique ability, like sucking hot air, making things hard or antigravity. Except the abiltiies aren't very unique because apparently Saucybum had like 3 different powers.
He was using nades to create pockets of hot air in his path to get closer, so his mech wasn't actually freezing
And it only took 5 seconds for him to pull his gun out and riddle the ockpit with bullets
also do note that the other kats got near the chill count before they froze over
Gravitational pull exerted by large moon rocks
The mechs have practical features though. It's the Orbital Knights who believe that they don't need to invest any effort into defeating Earth's forces because their mechs are so special who end up wasting all of the practical applications the features may have by charging in alone and getting wrecked.
The Nips seem to really like Finland for some reason.
Try aldnoah powering up deucalion and getting him to a facility with surgery
He did, reason why he got a new bionic eye connected to the internet, wikipedia, google, and 4chin
Now that simply isn't possible.
Aww, that's cute.
Sweden, France, Germany and now Mars. None shall take the Motherland.
He might end up being just that, considering he wasn't raised with the conception that being noble and possessing an Aldnoah Kataphrakt makes him undefeatable. In addition, Tharsis appears to just be a fairly traditional mech without any apparent dumb gimmicks for Inaho to exploit, and we've seen how willing everyone but Inaho is to throw themselves into hopeless conflicts.
To be fair, if my power was to passively freeze and destroy everything in a 1km radius automatically and was also passively immune to bullets and explosives, I wouldn't feel much of a sense of urgency when someone starts charging through my "I win" field firing random explosives.
I think the point is rather that the martians themselves don't really understand the science behind their own mechs abilities, because it's just transplanted alien tech. To them it's just invincible alien space magic, but when you understand the way it works, it's really just a cheap gimmick.
Inaho magically having access to the CERN database of particle physics is the only part that really makes it stupid
It's actually pretty funny when you think about it. Even Accel, with the help of heaven canceller ended up a cripple with decreased processing capabilities. Meanwhile Inaho gets even better.
Probably the mech was specifically built to not be affected by it's freezing ability, and it isn't equipped with anything else because the freezing field would destroy it's own weapons.
Still fucking stupid.
Look closely at the map. Do you notice how NA seems so misshapen, like there's a bunch of giant holes in it?
Half the moon came crashing down over the content in pieces, and eradicated most of it. There wasn't really a "USA' left to conquer, just a couple rural population centers and some bits of prairie.
I just found some footage from an ISR plane watching Inaho slay some Martians.
That's true, but it's not like Inaho traveled that distance instantly, or he wasn't watching. He sees Inaho negating the freezing by firing grenades, and even visibly flinches before Inaho even dumps the first launcher. The Martian was already nervous when he saw the first few grenades, but then chose to do nothing until he died.
Well, if the Knights are as green as the ones killed during the initial part of the invasion, I would honestly see why they'd be frozen in shock that someone saw through their special ability.
No, Sauzy's gimmick was apparently being a transforming super gattai mech with multiple gimmicks.
Speed was Cruhteo's gimmick, and Tharsis was Cruhteo's mech, which Slaine now pilots
There's already a ton of fanart, sure they're working on doujins too.
What is this face trying to convey?
This woman is your friend. She fights for freedom.
Just Inaho kicking alien arse.
So how many supporters do you think he's gained over the time skip? Lemrina and Harklight are already in the bag, he could probably get away with offing Saazbaum now and exposing the truth.
>This is what your average anime fans response was to this episode:
MY BABY INAHO IS ALIVE!!
THAT'S ALL MATTER TO ME!
be protag or antagonist, i dont care, glad to see you alive, inaho-kun ;v;
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO INAHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOO IS ALIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
AWWW YEAAA INAHO BADASS RETURN!!!!!
Still kicking the crap out of Martian Kataphraks through logic and scientific reasoning, the grenade idea was genius!!
LOL so much hate for Slaine in the comments XD
(not that i don't understand) but i still have hopes for him..him and Inaho had such potential to be the most badass team x_X
I feel that Hime isn't just being revived she's being brainwashed as well because thats just how these animes go
reason why inaho didn't freeze is because the enemy is using the aldnoah to stop the motion of atoms/molecules causing vibration to stop preventing the production of heat...
Inaho used explosions too send shock wave in the air making the atoms vibrate and produce heat then passed through those areas preventing him from freezing!! XD
Actually No, he stood in from him before shot and Inaho has on the ground so the bullet does a downward trajectory from his eye. So looking for this way he as never be hit on the brain.
How does this make you feel?
All we've seen him do is protect some transports, he's doing what he's doing to keep Asseylum alive. We'll have to see what he'll do when she wakes up, Saazbaum's time might be up then.
I like how most of the relevant world in terms of military are under control and the irrelevant shits (Except Russia) are somehow fighting alive.
>we made a point that China is under control, because fuck chinks.
This show is so predictable, the princess and inaho lived just as expected.
This season is going to be a long lead up to a final battle between inaho and slaine. Which Inaho will obviously win.
1) Inaho can't die even after getting headshotted
2) Slaine shooting him makes lines Inaho up for revenge, I mean Slaine won't win twice right?
3) Inaho is a Japanese, the retarded hack writers make Inaho invincible to please the Jap viewers.
The first episode 2/10, when Inaho did his "epic" return with the music I felt large amount of disgust.
>So what's Assylumps's gramps doing? Is he fine with the fact the he was being deceived the entire time?
From Shakespeare's Anthony and Cleopatra:
MENAS: "The three who share the known world are aboard your boat. Let me cut the anchor cable. When we are away from land, cut their throats. Everything that belongs to them is yours."
POMPEY: "Ah, this thou shouldst have done
And not have spoke on ’t! In me ’tis villainy,
In thee ’t had been good service. Thou must know,
’Tis not my profit that does lead mine honor;
Mine honor, it. Repent that e’er thy tongue
Hath so betrayed thine act. Being done unknown,
I should have found it afterwards well done,
But must condemn it now. Desist, and drink."
It was just coppy paste of the first 10 comments i saw, i wasnt even picking the best/worst ones.
Looks like my country is so irrelevant that they don't need to conquer it.
This episode was hilarious. Comedy of the year.
So where is my Yuki-nee? She's killing Martians and feared as Demon Yuki because she is returning 200% vengeance for Inaho right?
lol guys don't worry it's only 9mm
>MFW my whole city is always the first to get obliterated in every single medium
What it is about Houston that attracts aliens, nukes, colony drops, evil superhumans and WMDs?
>Both of them still alive
I now watch this series for one reason and one reason only, and that is to see Slaine's faggot ass get fucking wrecked by based Eggs.
>Now explain it to me.
His knights have chosen to do a villainous deed that just happens to advance his own agenda.
As a royal, it would be beneath him to advocate such a plot, and if it were to be known to the Martian public, he would have to condemn it. But he's with saying "tsk tsk", playing dumb, and taking advantage of the end result -- his family's long-time dream of relaunching the war of conquest has finally been realized, and all it cost him was a daughter.
Going to battle with a traininng kat against superior kat with technologies that can obliterate inferior kats in an instant, takes a lot of guts
going to battle with a superior kat against multiple inferior kats, doesn't take much
>Eggs defeated by Slaine
>Both of them have Aldnoah now
>Eggs is now a cyborg
>The series is building up to a final confirmation between them
Then he'll probably try to get Slaine and if Slaine rejects him he'll only be able to use Hime. Otherwise it doesn't make sense: having 3 royals. But why not just get a royal factor and kill Lemrina?
She's been wearing the same fucking suit the entire time. This nigga don't even bother to change it. He must wanted her puss to be raw
I hope when Hime wakes up she starts berating Slaine for trying to conquer the Earth.
Except that Salsa praised him as pilot because he's seamless now? In case it wasn't obvious, he was also able to evade punch lady for a while despite having only basic training (less than 2 years in Crouton castle).
Given her reaction to some of the things he said this episode that might be wearing thin, I'm doubting she knows that he shot her sister either.
>final episode will be Hime rejecting Slaine and siding with Inaho in a climactic confrontation, while Slaine cries like the beta cuck he is
How excited are you guys
I don't think he trusts Slaine at all, he knows he's just being used. Harklight is probably more of a guard than a manservant. Saazbaum might not know how to get royal activation rights too.
If I took that off, would she die?
>Am I being kept alive for the value of my blood?
Maybe she's saying that because she knows that Salsa killed her sister? Because alive is an odd word to choose in the presence of a noble who is supposed to safeguard her.
Smart of Saazbaum to help keep Asseylum's body alive. Not only does he gain a skilled Knight, he has a back-up source of Aldnoah activation. Presumably, he doesn't know about the activation factor transmission.
Apparently I share the same birthday as Slaine. Happy birthday faggot!
I don't think he trusts Slaine, but he trusts him enough to let her near Lemrina knowing that his pacifism might corrupt her and the fact that he has not one but 3 potential candidates for the throne on the same Landing Castle probably means that he has spares in case one of them misbehaves.
