As if we haven’t brought you enough news this week (see our Newswire from yesterday HERE), we’ve got more for you as we’re happy to confirm some details relating our Aldnoah.Zero release. But before we go on, if a brief introduction to the series if you’re not familiar.
Synopsis: Fifteen years have passed since the hypergate collapsed on the moon’s surface – a catastrophe known as the Heaven’s Fall. The war between Earth and the VERS Empire of Mars is now in a cease-fire.
The VERS’ Princess Asseylum Vers Allusia descends upon Earth as an ambassador hoping to encourage reconciliation while some citizens are not willing to compromise. Inaho Kaizuka, a Terran high school student… and Slaine Troyard (pictured right), who swears his allegiance to Princess Asseylum… Their fates cross as both societies watch in horror as a missile crashes on Asseylum’s motorcade. This incident marks the beginning of a new war.
You can watch a subtitled trailer, original shown prior to the series being simulcast, below.
