She was supposed to be the autist love interest for the autist MC, but the producers couldn't put it properly into the story or else they'd feel the wrath of their fujoshi target demographic who despise anything heterosexual, so light teasing is all we got.

Actually the same reason why Hime was killed multiple times and in the end wasn't even won by Slaine nor Inaho, but instead put into a loveless political marriage with some random count who's probably abusive (assuming his father's behaviour can be taken as an indication, it's in his genes). That way, the pretty rich girl that's the object of fujoshi jealousy "got what was coming to her". It satisfied their revenge fantasies, Hime being the insert for the obnoxious Little Miss Perfects in their own lifes.

Inaho worked together with Rayet to bust some dude out of military prison (it's a long story), because Rat is the person he trusts most. She's a girl who's game for anything, as long as Inaho asks her to, after all.

But in the end, nothing came off it anyway, since nobody won the eggsbowl, no matter what the various shippers like to claim.

Almost everyone didn't matter much, and even those characters that only had one brief scene that even mattered at all to the story still had a lot of appearances before and after.

But not the kind of appearances that give you a slice-of-life get-to-know-a-character feel. It wasn't amusing or entertaining or anything. Really, in almost all instances they were just pointless distractions.

Do you want to sit down to be told a story about a war and adventure and love and stuff, but then have it derail into the story teller very inefficiently establishing fairly to entirely irrelevant character details of characters that won't even matter in the story anymore, for hours on end?

[It's not a sexy, nice, funny, whatever detail, it's just irrelevant shit like that they walked through a door and greeted someone, that they put on an uniform over their shirt, that they were already standing in the hallway, that they were also battling in a battle where you already know everyone is involved - but without doing anything special...]

I kinda don't.

>>123363089
Does it say that Inko won the Eggs? The artist drew that prematurely because of all the Inko flags in season 2, right?

It kinda amuses me that A/Z didn't even have the guts to commit itself to any pairing in the end, just the way it would never kill any character off as long as it could be avoided somehow. Gotta keep all the possibilities open, because then everybody will be happy, right?
>>
>>123363150
Yeah but you can have interesting character reactions without it being a relationship pairing.
Character establishing moments don't have to be ship-bait.

Best Martian killing duo.

Honestly though, Rayet was probably the one character that had the most chemistry with Inaho. Throughout the series she gains development with Inaho. I liked episode 5 of this season where Inaho goes out of his way to reassure and comfort Rayet that she's different from the other Martians. It was also a little bit neat how that carried over to the next episode where Rayet is the one that was carrying him over to the building and was apparently the only one informed of his plan.

I don't get why they didn't give Inaho a Rayet end. Inko was just teased throughout the series about her crush on Inaho with no actual reciprocation and Asshime just goes and marries a random guy while Rayet got development with Inaho

Everyone that worked at the moon base knew that Saazbaum was behind it, they blocked Asseylum's transmission and were part of the conspiracy. Are all of them going to have to be locked up in a secret prison for the rest of their lives? What about within the UFE? Those that were at the HQ when it was attacked know and of course there's everyone on the Deucalion. That's a bunch of mouths that need to be kept shut.

Talk about corrupt peace.

What was the point in S2?

Lemrina and Harklight brought..............nothing.
Slaine's whole character turned 180 and he went to shit.
Inaho decided to be an even more broken gary stu than the first season.
All the Orbital Knights lost every fight, They never won one at all.

What is the fucking point in Aldnoah Zero?
>>
>>123371192
Everything was pointless. All that talk Slaine and Harklight did about revolutionizing Vers and fixing things turned out to be nothing, it's like they talked up the big story but did absolutely nothing with it. They gave the audience the expectation that things would happen and in the end none of them did, I hope the remaining BDs flop.

Speaking of Harklight, why did we never get a flashback to him and Slaine meeting and deciding to do what they did? He was crazy loyal and we never really knew why other than he respected him.

Saucebum couldn't turn Versians into Terranfags, though. Slaine achieved that.

I do not know, in fact I can not understand.

Their script always seemed invented on the spot week after week (only improvisation can explain the addition of Crutheo Jr at three episodes left without any foreshadow). We are at the levels of Morosawa for bullshits and disorganization.

They were aiming for something like pic related, Slaine talking all blame to be a martyr of peace which was hinted hew as trying to do in the end so Ass wouldn't have opposition and trying to kill himself, Ass and Inaho bail him out at least saving him (as if Suzaku and Nunners conspired against Lelouch's Requiem) but letting him take the blame. He starts a new life.

But it was so badly executed and a mess that came out absolutely terrible and made everything shitty.
>>
>>123371976
What was the point of him? I swear he had more screen time than Inaho outside of mecha fights.
>>
Does anyone else think Count Books should've stayed with the Deucalion so we could finally get some interaction between the Terrans and Martians? Rayet doesn't count because she's against her own people. There were so many moments where they could've developed the characters but they somehow managed to waste it on nothing.
>>
>>123371881
I honestly think they could have if they cut out those fight scenes. We had so many pointless fights against irrelevant characters. For what purpose? Ice guy fight, invisible mech fight, all unnecessary.
>>
>>123372069
It really doesn't work since so many know it's a lie, with minimal digging anyone of the Knights on Vers side can figure out it's a lie. With Knights not siding with her already Asseylum has set herself up for it to all fall apart and eventual civil war.

She was there to add artificial depth to the story at the beginning. Making the story seem complex by having multiple subterfuge arcs at the beginning makes a good first impression and stops most whiners from posting their first whine. These superficial depth investments are tactics you see in various light novel stories as well, so it's nothing new.

I didn't say cut out all fight scenes, just unnecessary ones; of which there were too many, like the ones I specified. The fight against the ice guy? That was just there to allow Inaho to show off and show the audience his new eye. Which could have been done in a variety of different ways. Instead, an entire episode dedicated to taking out fodder on the grand scale of things.

They gain nothing by opening up their mouth? So long as they get to live and eat kfc it's good enough for them, I guess?

Now that I think about it, If AssHime have persona like Lemmy instead of this retard thick head princess, the ending would make sense.
>>
>>123371940
Slaine was practically already at the serving of Saazabaum and was more ambitious and evil. There was no ambiguity, the point of the story was just the love between Ass-Hime and Inaho with Slane that gets in the way.
It would work much better, exactly because of shoty numbers of episodes.

The whole mess happened because they have distorted the story, but left unchanged the ending (which, in fact, no longer makes sense with these premises).

>>123372446
What if some of the moon base staff still believe in Slaine's cause and don't like that Slaine-sama took the blame for everything? They can join the other Counts and tell them the truth. Once Lemrina is treated she could go to fight, remember she wanted to continue the war for Slaine.

They were cannon fodder though. Their significance was irrelevant except for the fact "lol, we're space knights". Their only purpose in the story was to be beaten by Inaho.

In the past we joked about Lacus saying she was evil but ... She has never done anything so disgusting. With this action (even just accept what they did, without opposing) completely redefines her character. Think that some of the Knights who started the war in the first season (those who are guilty of the greater destruction) still alive and free with no guilt ( or or that no one accuse "Saazam") ... is disturbing.
>>
>>123361412
OlderShinji was kind useful for giving history via flashbacks.

If there is a season 3 I would see her as the main villian replacing Saazbaum.

>>123372711
What makes you think it wasn't Slaine's idea or that Slaine doesn't agree or wants this? At the last episode, he sabotaged Vers side from doing an effective war come back so Ass could not be defied in a successful way.

Slaine's dream was always peace and coexistence and his aspiration was to be of use to Ass not expecting anything in return. He never sought anything for himself, he was probably expecting death if he succeeded too. With his charge and actions in the last episode, he ensured this was going to happen and he wanted to eliminate himself so Ass wouldn't find a strong opponent. Inaho and Ass saved his life and gave him a chance to start over, Slaine is dead but he as person is not and he accomplished what he wanted: peace, Aldnoah becoming open to everyone (well not the way he exactly wanted, but this was a point he addressed), be of use to the princess and knowing that she didn't want him to die helped him to face his guilty conscience and be at peace with his actions and deeds. Slaine might not have started the war but he still killed people and did shit he hated because he's a naturally kind and gentle person. He couldn't live with himself but in the end he accepted it and felt free.

He disarmed the Vers side and made it scattered so there would not be hostilities and he knew exactly what he was doing, that's why he was as satisfied as Sauce to be killed in the end, because he knew he accomplished what would give foundations for what Ass and he wanted.

>>123361673
She didn't grow or develop as a character at all, even though she was the most naive and stupid character in the entire series and STILL always had things go her way (hurr durr universal Aldnoah priveleges no way this could fail. Oh wait, you mean it actually worked and everyone's at peace now? right...).
Plus being a slut, with so many people pining after her, and she'd willing take all of their dicks except Mazuurek's simply because she never met him.
>>
>>123373217
Main problem here though is that to keep that peace she needs to fix Vers, by all appearances she hasn't done anything and she still has opposition.
>>
>>123373157
He said in episode 19 he just wanted to be of use of her.

>>123373144
Slaine foresaw this. Remember his talks to Lemons, Slaine is a cunning person who knows how to read the political field. He did this exactly to be blamed. He could have easily surrendered and but then someone would taken his place. He ensured nobody would at least for now.
>>
>>123373262
A weak opposition with a poor morale. Those Counts aren't wagging war but minding themselves. Fixing Vers is an issue that was handwaved, but if it becomes Capitalism, she and the feudal system is screwed. Either way, Slaine realized there was another way and went for it to do what would take to ensure it would happen.

Ass once again did nothing though, which makes it annoying as fuck. She sat and let Slaine do the job for her and Inaho to pick up the pieces.

>>123373217
Yes and okey... but there are moral implications that should be considered. The actions have meaning. The fact that Slaine wants to play the villan and die, can not and and MUST NOT prevent the protagonists (especially if they are shown as positive characters) to do the right thing.

Accuse throw on him all responsibility and leave out the real culprits is a right thing? No, it is not. So, whether voluntary or not, it seems that Asseylum uses Slaine (a terrestrial spy) to not put a bad light on Mars. But Mars has caused the death of millions of people in the season 1. this is unacceptable.
>>
>>
>>123373369
Vers as whole are screwed once the UFE has full Alndoah rights.
>>
>>123373437
This. It doesn't matter what Slaine wanted, what they did in blaming him for everything is wrong. That Saazbaum got zero blame is unsettling.
>>
>>123373279
He wanted to be of use to her yes, but he also loved her. Ever since she rescued him from drowning or whatever it was that happened to his dumbass.
>>
>>
>>123373437
There was already a lot of death, the right thing to do is try to stop the kills instead of punishing more people. I understand what you say, but I don't think she's using him more than he obviously played the situation in the end to be used on his favor and hers: and he obviously knew he was going to be blamed, he foresaw all the outcomes already, he knew what would happen when he took that choice. She is not that smart. Is it bad they blame someone who didn't do it? Of course, but he doesn't mind this, he got what he wanted in the end and he got a second chance to start over he had never considered after being relieved of all the guilt he felt. Ass' wish for him to be saved of misery reached him. That's probably what they wanted to convey but the show was just so badly written and rushed in the end that failed and made Ass look like a huge bitch and everyone braindead.

Those three birds flying together in the end was because the three were in the same wavelength. Slaine sacrificed his life and identity to be the Devil Ass needed for peace. Ass sacrificed her happiness to be with the two of them, to be the ruler they needed to bring their desired peace. Inaho sacrificed any grudge he had for Slaine to save him and try to bring him a hope for happiness. Of course you can argue Slaine was the one who sacrificed more things and you would be right, he did. But he has now a chance to start fresh and do whatever he wants and be whoever he wants, he has absolute freedom after he is released. Slaine was always defined for his origin or by his fathers and now that is gone, that must be a huge weight off his shoulders.

The main problem wasn't with Slaine's arc but with the war itself. I suspect this anon is right >>123372647 The story was centered on Slaine's journey to be Zero. The intergalactic war was the setting (in particular the second cour) which is why we have so many plotholes left hanging.

Too bad about the shit writing.

>Ass sacrificed her happiness to be with the two of them, to be the ruler they needed to bring their desired peace. Inaho sacrificed any grudge he had for Slaine to save him and try to bring him a hope for happiness
This is where the argument fails. Neither of their sacrifices, if you even call it that, are on the same level since it doesn't even effect either of them. Inaho is just doing Hime a favor he's not sincere, Hime gets to live the rest of her life in lavish luxury knowing that her dream is fullfilled. None of those are bad in the slightest and it;s added even worse when Slaine started the story being kicked around with everything bad happening to him and we're suppose to believe this is the best course of action? Give me a fucking break they could have done so many thing better than this but they didn't have the time, Slaine dying would have been a much better conclusion because he would have died with the knowledge that his life meant something in the end him going "Zero" just pushes the notion that he was always a failure and never amounted to anything and just got to live on due to the misguided will of the princess.
>>
>>123361153

>>
>>123376446
I feel sorry for Inaho, he's stuck picking up the pieces and fixing Slaine while Asseylum doesn't do jack shit. Having him save his life is one thing, asking him to free him from the chains of misery is a completely different matter.
>>
>>123376667
Well who's to blame for Slaine's life being in pieces besides himself?
>>
>>123376713
Slaine's to blame fir his father not giving a shit about him and sending him off to live with a Count and physically and mentally abused him for years?
>>
>>123376667
>I feel sorry for Inaho
Why? He's a hero of earth and an army general now at the tender age of 18. His own oblijection is due to literally being a retard he should have just killed Slaine because keeping him alive does nothing to him just his faint promise to Hime. That's why the ending is so bad is because it feels like Slaine is the only one who lost anything.
>>
>>123376873
So basically Slaine can blame Klancain's dad and his own father?
>>
>>123377258
Answer the question/
>>
>>123377258
You don't answer a question with another question retard. Slaine's life was always in pieces it's when he actually had a chance to accomplish something that it meant something and when it failed it didn't matter at all.

>Inaho got cucked by some random asshole who came completely out of left field, I'd count that as a loss

Exactly, he has his friends and family intact so he's fine without her

Why did they even have Saazbaum and Slaine talk about how bad the people of Vers's lives are and how wealth only goes to the top? Asseylum didn't change anything within the society so even though she's made these deals with the UFE the people of Vers are still suffering. Are we supposed to imagine it all falling apart and them overthrowing her and chopping off her head or something?

The fake death back in episode 1 was still acceptable in my opinion, but Rat's assassination attempt should've definitely done her in for good.

Thinking back on it, I wonder why anyone ever thought that anybody died at the end of season 1. At that point they had already demonstrated that they'll always shy away from serious consequences for their precious main cast. Not only did they raise Hime back from the dead for the second time in episode 10, they didn't even let Rat carry out her suicide attempt. If they really wanted A.Z to be taken serious as a war story, they would've at the very least killed one of the two girls off in that kind of situation, preferrably both. But they didn't have the guts to go through with it. If they didn't have the guts then, why should they have them later on?

I feel positively foolish that I ever expected any different from those fucking hacks.

I'm greatly amused Ass is now portrayed as evil by most of the artists.

Well, they did use Slaine as a scapegoat, after all. Asshime is dumb enough not to know about it, though.
>>
>>123391945
It's funny how little art she's gotten after the show ended, it's pretty much all Inaho taking care of Slaine.

Maybe this was what she really asked Eggs to do but anal engine lied to him so it wouldn't destroy his mental image of her.

Seriously, that ending was so sanitary that those two's interaction was the only good part.
>>
>>123392304
"How will Asseylum deal with recalcitrant counts?" is interesting, but doesn't translate well to fanart.

I've seen a few cute Lemrina pieces, like the ones where she gets robo legs and rescues Slaine and the one where she's taking first steps with Doc.

she was one of Odin's Valkyries; with yuki and inko. And she was best girl to have casual sex with.

Rat a best.

The only good thing that came out of the finale are the comfy fanarts.

At least Slaine would appreciate him, save his life and he'll cling to you like glue and be loyal for life.

She became top maid and is mourning her husbando because thanks to bitchhime, she thinks he's dead.

fuck, femSlaine actually looks good. Such a waste

Whatever the fuck happened to Inaho's cybernetic eye anyways. It was getting all sentient and shit and then he just removes it? That's it?

Salsa and Orlane didn't die at the same time but with a 17 year gap between them, so they're shit outta luck.

If none of you think asshime did the smartest thing, how would anons solve the war?
>>
>>123404280
Asking Inaho is the "good" solution to everything in this series.
>>
>>123404280
If Slaine did not play along with her, she is fuck. And not to mention of many plot hole just in this episode. My complain is that Aoki and his team did not plan anything before hand at all to solve the story.
>>
>>123404280
S2 in maximum edge, Macbeth style with Slaine/Hime/Salsa team up to rid the Knights of their toys and backstabbing each other in the process. Lem as an optional extra. Book replaces Croutons Jr.

Barcode dies tragically of betrayal. Slaine kills Salsa, Hime suicides mindbroken, Inaho thinks Slaine kills Hime, Slaine kills Inaho, Book walks in and Slaine commits suicide.

Key players dead, war over, Aldnoah drives lost, Aldnoah.zero and Book forms the provisional government.

Centuries later cut to the rediscovery of Aldnoah as heralding the 'new dawn for humanity'. Cut to Earth with resources used and a dying atmosphere and polluted water source stained in orange. Cut to the discovery of a new solar system with a habitable planet - roughly the same size, colour and habitability of Earth.

First solve the biggest problem with Vers. Attempting to force peace without solving the reason why the problem which caused the war to occur in the first place will just make the peace a short one.

>>123404775
I really want to see how Ass is going to convince the counts on Eath to leave and go back to their barren rocks entirely reliant on importation of basic food stuffs
>>
>>123404828
She'll fail, and end up causing an even bigger divide between herself and her people. She'll approach them without knowing what's wrong, and demand their compliance not realizing that they aren't Slaine, who will hang off of her every word.
>>
>>123404828
She won't. The Earth counts will either get destroyed by the UFE's newfound Aldnoah powered military, or if they somehow manage to defend their conquered lands, they'll found new states on Earth soil independent of the UFE who'll be there to stay for generations to come.
>>
>>123361153
They needed a best girl. And some forced drama (muh revenge and shit).
>>
>>123406398
Considering that the UFE has control over Asseylum, by knowing about her lies, I think for them its a question of, should they side with Asseylum even though all of her people hate her and the Vers empire will envitably enter a civil war, even if its not in Asseylum's time. Or should they side with the Earth counts who hate Asseylum and will probably ally with you, and help to supplement the population on Earth. Also it would just be hurrying the inevitable anyway.

Can someone explain me how is trade going to solve all problems Vers has? Because the Ass apologists believe it can.

>Lemrina offers to activate rights in exchange of clearing Slaine's name and relocate Martian refugees who want to immigrate

Where's Ass' business now?
