    [Anime] Re: Aldnoah.Zero Second Season

    Last episode wrapped it all up, nice and tidy for the most part. Didn't really leave any loose ends. Magneto-prison at the end had me snickering though.

    That said, the finale (and the show in...

    Berserker Julie?

    Though my favourite part was still Julie refusing to leave the boat, staying to fight, because she can't swim (or at least stating that as a reason). :P
