Who is that in the back?
Inaho from the future
I am pretty sure it's Char.
If the martians have no culture where do they get these stupid fucking names from?
He's going to be moe.
I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around how an old fart like Saazbaum is so unacquainted with chicken.
His parents were strict vegetarians.
His new Martian sex slave.
He better be if Slaine isn't going to be moe anymore.
Slaine too stronk
It's probably impossible for Slaine not to be moe, his followers will have trouble not wanting to pinch his cheeks.
Harklight or Harkwright, depending on the spelling.
>taking sauce when he would fight tooth and nail to maim hime even in critical condition
nigga better not
He could always grab him with Tharsis's hand and keep him outside the cockpit, then keep him a prisoner afterward for information.
Hopefully he just left him there to bleed to death though.
I hope so. With him terrans can extract a loot of info to give themselves a fighting chance.
Both sides really need the info though, Slaine and Asseylum need to know which Knights are part of the conspiracy. If they go to the wrong people it means her head will roll. He also needs to learn about what his dad was up to. It's possible that they'll share information, the question is if the UEF would trust them.
Slaine's dad was a higher up in the UEF though, wasn't he? Perhaps just hearing his name would help.
Is he walking away from the princess?
Think he's supposed to be walking toward her but the whole scene was laid out poorly, no wonder they're confused.
I really couldn't follow the directions in this scene
Gap moe? Best moe.
They will have to rely on Cruhteo, who is definitely fine and not kill. He's trustworthy.
Even if he were alive he'd be just as in the dark as them.
I don't think Saazbaum would sell out his co-conspirators to a couple of kids.
Slaine needs Saazbaum more than the Terrans do, who can potentially salvage Dioscuria so long as he's alive. They have all his underlings who were probably captured.
>I really couldn't follow the directions in this scene
The Aldnoah drive room's space is non-Euclidean.
Guess it depends on how far he takes his life debts. He'd probably tell him about his dad though.
Poor El Dorito, no hime, no job, surrounded by terran scum
It won't be Inaho searching for Asseylum all next cour, it'll be Eddelrittuo. She'll be the new Slaine.
What, the gundam? :^)
A much more mentally unstable one. She is gonna lose it.
I am pretty sure he want Slaine asshole.
He doesn't look particularly pleased.
Is Slaine gonna treat him the way that Crouton treated Slaine?
I hope he joined the line, cutting in isn't allowed.
>The theme of the series is plain robot wining over super OP robot.
Why Slaine making himself a villain by pilotting Tharsis? He can stay as an MC if he still pilot a carrier. Did they want Slaine to be the Bizon of this series?
I can't Slaine see ever being cruel to a subordinate. He's likely to be walked over if he's not careful.
Somewhere between Bizon and Riddhe.
Just curious, how is Slaine at all like Bizon? Or their motivations?
Slaine would gladly burn himself in brimstone to help the princess.
Family from Soviet Germany.
Only if he wanted to deal with Saaz punching hime-sama across the cockpit all the way to the nearest Landing Castle.
All that seiyuu moe. I want a better scan of Toru Okawa going FUCKING NAILED IT in that little picture of Saazbaum.
Saazbaum will withstand torture. Saazbaum stronk.
He isn't even slightly similar to Bizon.
If they caught him he's in deep shit. This show is only kind to young martian girls. The misandry is real.
An anon said this was about Slaine's VA having trouble saying "Aldnoah drive" (too many doros in a row).
I think Harklight will probably be a snarky asshole he won't be able to manage. He's older and bigger and much more intimidating.
He's going to be adorable as hell.
Whoever's castle Slaine is staying at, they'd have to be crazy not to give Tharsis's pilot an adjutant who'll be so sweet that he'll make Slaine want to stay and help.
What is the end game of this show? The plot didn't really go anywhere and it seems everyone is alive so the status quo hasn't changed ofr cour 2, it's basically back to square one but with earth a little more fucked.
It would be nice to get some intentionally comedic scenes on the vers side.
Slaine's new buttbuddy for the fujoshi. They made no secret they are their main audience.
Fixing Vers basically, which will in turn keep the Terrans from being enslaved. It probably won't be so simple though, I figure the original aliens may come back.
Since Mars is supposed to be the focus I figure there'll be some comedy, Slaine's going to have some issues being in a authoritative position for sure.
The theme is real robot vs super robot not real robot defeats super robot. That's why Slaine kicked Inaho's ass last episode and why the Earth scum could only fight Martians with their own super robot.
It's always possible he'll being ultra loyal and will wind up being badly injured or die trying to save Slaine. Slaine's luck with people close or kind to him is beyond bad.
Bizon wouldn't do that, he's just jealous of her which Aoki denied to be Slaine's motivations.
In the end Slaine having a super robot didn't even matter, all he did was body slam him through a wall. When it comes down to it flashy tactics get you killed.
>rayet beneath slaine, inko beneath inaho
Goddammit not again
Slaine's not one of flashy tactics. He's more dangerous than any knight in a robot because he won't be shooting trite phrases and posing.
Exactly, he just goes for the kill. If it looks like he can't win I see him just high tailing it out of there too, he doesn't have the stupid pride issue. He's going to be quite deadly as an opponent.
Probably. Slaine doesn't have any friend other than Asseylum and that will be strained now so a new relationship would be good for him. Also another way to bestow the suffering eventually.
It'll be a racist guy who grows loyal to Slaine over the cour, basically he'll become El Dorito Male version.
El Dorito was originally 20 years old, I wouldn't be shocked if he was going to be her OTP.
I wonder how much fanart he's going to get before he ever utters a single line?
Absolutely disgusting on all counts.
I could see him being close to Slaine while Asseylum's in a coma and he's all depressed.
My count right now is one piece of porn, ten single image or one-page comics, and two multi-page comics on Pixiv.
I expect it to explode now that his VA has been announced, people know he's not just a random background character now.
I think there were two or three images before the VA announcement, so it's definitely picked up.
Being close to Slaine automatically gives one a deathflag.
Being close to Slaine and paired with him gives one a pass to at worst ambiguous send off like Crouton.
Aoki doesn't want to upset the fangirls.
He reminds me of the homo honey trap from the last two seasons of Game of Thrones.
Don't be like that El Dorito.
So they'll all be stuck in limbo then.
Harklightfag is keeping a watchful eye on all happenings. Perhaps too watchful.
I have to wonder what her reaction will be when she learns Slaine's been "chosen" by Aldnoah, she's the one that kept going about them not being human anymore.
"Is Croutons dead?" is an anime question we'll be talking about ten years from now.
It should be easier now that there's a Pixiv tag.
El Dorito's on the Terran side, so if she finds out, it probably won't be until Slaine is declared Emperor or something. She wouldn't be pleased.
>El Dorito's on the Terran side,
She isn't, she's on the princess' side.
I figure either Asseylum or Slaine will come out and make some kind of declaration before then, they'll have to secure the moon base first. I wouldn't be surprised if both sides work together on this but it likely won't be until mid cour.
She said that once, after growing up on a planet with anti-Terran propaganda pumped into her head constantly, and she said it before she'd ever met a Terran.
Now that Martians have tried to kill her beloved princess and Terrans have been nothing but nice to her, she probably wouldn't have a problem with it.
She's stranded with the Terrans though.
She'd just be shocked. I think her beef with Slaine may have been like Cruhteo, it wasn't because he was a Terran it was because he was close to Asseylum.
I'm pretty sure Cruhteo was actually a racist asshole.
It would be ironic but I think she'll get some development next time so she won't be so hung up on these things.
Well of course, though I wonder how severe it would have been if he wasn't buddies with her.
One week until Blu-Ray 2 and Slaine backstory manga.
It amazing this is happening because no one even knows what his personality will be like and he just off in the background of the promo image. Most people just brushed him off as an extra at first.
It's normal, people make fanart for characters before a show even starts. I always wonder how they can makes comics and such when they don't even know their personalities.
Daily prayer for Saazbaum-nii staying alive.
He's in a promo pic with Slaine. Nobody would give a fuck if he show up without him.
The way Cruhteo died was so ridiculous I wouldn't be surprised if he survived. The show clearly has no qualms killing off the heroine 3 times. That's record breaking in something that doesn't have timeloops.
Seriously hope next cour has cliffhangers that don't rely on her dying. The one where Slaine came in to help was a bit cool at least, but they need to come better.
>The way Cruhteo died was so ridiculous I wouldn't be surprised if he survived.
Interview says they killed him off in an ambiguous way so as not to upset his "dangerous female fans." You're watching a show where fujotears prevent death.
They didn't mention kill off, just that he had to disappear from the story, so it'll advance. He neither confirmed he's alive or dead.
Based fujo tears. I bet they have Saucebum disappearing without trace into limbo resort.
>Implying Slaine didn't wish to save Asseylum and get time loop powers.
>people thinking Slaine will die after that or even getting his pretty face ruined
Story is gonna be a clusterfuck if the bring him back for those reasons and not because they had plans to originally. But I guess if they do he doesn't have to have a big role.
Likely they'll leave it as Slaine going back to the castle and not finding any body, there wouldn't be one anyway since he was turned into ashes and it was raining. People can live with their fantasies and no toes are stepped on.
But Harklight through yonder window breaks?
>List of things surpassed
[x] Code Geass
[x] Boku no Pico
Star that Harklight speculah. Whatever /a/ thinks is most likely will turn out to be completely untrue.
>Most people just brushed him off as an extra at first.
A.Z has had a bad record with using extras instead of introducing new minor characters. Cruhteo and Saazbaum had Trillram, Vlad, and zero other named underlings.
They might not have had names, but I'll always remember Chubby Guy With Short Hair Who Checked Out Nilokeras For Saazbaum, Those Two Guys Who Stood Behind Cruhteo In The Audience Chamber, Guy Who Hit Slaine With A Baton, and Cute Martian Fujoshi.
>I bet they have Saucebum disappearing without trace into limbo resort.
Saazbaum is more important to the plot and his death is not necessary to advance it. Either Slaine or the Terrans should have saved him.
>[x] Boku no Pico
Not until someone fucks Slaine onscreen.
You just need to get into gunplay.
>serves the royal family
>no revenge motivation
>no fucks to give about a rival
>pilots an overpowered white mecha
So he's a bit closer to a Suzaku.
Suzaku was based on Kira like Lelouch was based on Char.
It's possible to pilot a white Gundam and be loyal to the Martian leader and still be a Char.
Had too much blue to qualify.
It has about the same amount of blue as RX-78-2.
