Here, no one really cared. The show had become a bad meme on this board, ("stick to A/Z") long before it ended. /a/ had some pretty mad slaine fags though who cares about /a/. What I really remember most of all the shit posting about it before it aired. People saying Gundam would be surpassed by it, and a bunch of other crap because Urobutchi was somewhere in the credits.
>>13746893 you'll hate me for this but A/Z came out right before I got into mecha and I thought it looked cool as shit. It was all the shitposting about the first episode which I had thought was cool that made me watch gundam.
I actually liked that she ended up that prince guy at the end, though I don't think he had much of a character. It was a genuinely well-done twist.
The problem was that the show had completely overdosed on Gundam cliches at that point, and became what it was trying to avoid. I have all kinds of complaints, but my main complaint is that Inaho was ridiculously powerful - There were no deaths amongst the main cast, while the show was just begging for it - and Slaine was the lamest rival of all time. Life just shit on him unfairly.
A better ending would have been Slaine founding his own splinter faction/beaten by Inaho after Inaho fries his brain in the process, the Deucalion destroyed with all hands, and an exceptionally vicious war on the horizon.
Basically, this show chickened out. Here's an example of how it pussed out: In the final battle, Slaine takes a lucky hit and loses his ability to SEE THE FUTURE, which should make him invincible. Instead of thinking of some clever way for Inaho to beat him, he just lost his one advantage.
Seriously, the biggest twist would've been Inaho and the Princess dying in Season 1, and Season 2 being a "Oh shit, what do we do now? Amuro Ray is dead! The Gundam's in a million pieces!" carry-on from there.

If A/Z taught me one thing is that most anime fans are really fucking stupid. >>13747392 >It had a really cool premise If you've never seen a mecha anime before, sure. >>13747144 So what you're saying is that you're a tool like all the Urobutcher cock suckers? The same type of retards who didn't know what Cyberpunk was until they watched Psycho Pass.
>>13747891 The thing you have to remember is that a lot of the people hyped for A/Z were Urobutcher fanboys and the people who think Evangelion-Code Geass-Gurden Lagann are the pinnacles of mecha anime and everything is Gundam and Gundam to them is Kira Yamato crying while ones hitting everything in his invincible plot armor protected super Gundam.
