Webmaster Review

89% Brilliant

The dark and realistic story is outstanding. The scenario structure related to politics is difficult and requires viewers' understanding. A love and hate drama with colored love started in the second half, and it accelerated and became interesting, such as father killing and fake marriage.

Character design and mechanical design are well separated, and the realism of mechanical design is excellent. It is a view of the world where the earth, the moon, the feudal system, etc. have been created with great care as well as mecha. The simplicity of character design and the realistic 3D drawing of the mecha are well harmonized, and the mecha action animation is a masterpiece. The background is very realistic because it carefully depicts the world.

The theme song of the first half is very well matched to the style and very good as a production, and the latter ED song is also very good. Sound and BGM are also very good, and the sound production drawn into the story is quite wonderful.

The story is exceptionally interesting, and the whiteness of the leading role is rare and interesting even though it is a mechanical one. The OP is very beautiful and moves well. It is an excellent work that is not an exaggeration to say almost a masterpiece.

2. Synopsis

In 1972, during the Apollo 17 mission, an ancient alien artifact named the “Hypergate” was discovered on the surface of the Moon, allowing for near-instantaneous travel to and from Mars and the colonisation of Mars. After settlers discover additional alien technology on Mars (dubbed “Aldnoah”), they one-sidedly declare independence from Earth to found the Vers Empire. Later, the Vers Empire declares war on Earth, and in 1999, a battle on the Moon’s surface causes the Hypergate to explode, shattering the Moon and scattering the remnants of the Moon into a debris belt around Earth. Cut off from Mars, the remnants of the Vers Imperial Army establishes several massive orbital space stations within the debris belt and a ceasefire was established. 15 years later, in 2014, an attack on the First Princess of Vers during a diplomatic mission to Earth causes the Empire and its 37 clans of Orbital Knights to launch a new attack on Earth, this time determined to conquer it once and for all.

3. Proficiency can Learn Japanese with This Anime

For the world where royals, royalty and soldiers appear, honorifics used by characters are difficult to the highest level. Even Japanese people generally use honorifics that are not used every day. An honorific language with a very high level of wording is used. There are also many technical terms such as mechanics / military operations, weapons, classes, orders, etc. In addition, the story is likely to contain political elements and the content is also difficult to understand, making it much more difficult to understand the context than the terminology. It’s an anime that makes Japanese people happy with the difficulty level of Japanese. If you are a foreigner like a native Japanese, you can learn Japanese with this anime.
