Animecast: Sword Art Online II and Aldnoah Zero

saoazhdr

The online death arena and fight for earth has come to somewhat of a conclusion as the first half of both Sword Art Online II and Aldnoah Zero comes to an end. In this episode of the Animecast, we sit down and review the first 12 episodes of Sword Art Online’s second season, then jump into reviewing the first cour for Aldnoah Zero. Following the podcast we also do a spoiler discussion on Aldnoah Zero, no holding back. If you have not watched Alnoah Zero, we give proper warning so don’t fear!

Note: Our spoiler discussion for Aldnoah Zero begins at the 39 minute mark following the closing music. Also note, we accidentally got stuck on the number “13” so despite our fumble in the podcast episode, this is all regarding the first 12 episodes of both series.

The intro for this episode is the OP for Sword Art Online II called “IGNITE” by Eir Aoi. The opening for the second review is an insert song for Aldnoah Zero called “Breathless” by Mika Kobayashi. The closing song for the reviews is another insert song from Aldnoah Zero called “MKAlieZ” by Mika Kobayashi. Finally, the closer for the spoiler discussion segment is an insert song from Aldnoah Zero called “Site-Now” by Hiroyuki Sawano.

We hope you all enjoy!
