Weekly Anime Review

Aldnoah Zero, Ep 20

Three Martian Kataphrac against the Deucalion crews… the Martians won, and the Deucalion had to run with its tail between its legs. One is invisible with explosive arrows, one has a lighting shield that discharges anything electronic, and one can make copies of itself. Charming trio. It also appears that Harklight is the person dealing with the whole war side of things, Slaine just says, “Do X,” and he plans it out. Basically, taking out Harklight will take out Slaine.
