A full season review of A-1 Pictures and TROYCA's 2014 summer anime, Aldnoah.Zero from the blog Life and Anime.
Well, that was a thing. Conveniently, the ending of the final episode this week was a pretty tidy microcosm of a lot of the problems I had with the show, or at least was helpful in consolidating their effects into a single moment. Disappointing, but sadly all too common.
This would have been one of my favorites, but the ending ruined it for me. I will not go over details because it would lead to spoilers. I hate that they we have to wait until January 2015 to figure out more of the story. In my opinion, this is not how a season 1 should end for an anime that is going on a 3 month hiatus.
This reminded me of the ending of Hamatora's first season. If you ask me, a show has to earn viewer investment for a next season, not force them to have to watch it. That's always what I feel like endings like this are doing.
