Aldnoah Zero 2016-11-24

Robots and abandoned plot.

Unlike other mecha shows where the main character wins on superior technology, in this series, they win on superior tactics. It's very satisfying to see how every victory can be justified, in this sense it's similar to Kenshin. The mecha bits alone are totally worth watching at least once.

Mecha bits aside, the story felt abandoned by its creators. The first few episodes felt like it could be interesting, but then it more or less just dragged on until everybody died in episode 12... or so we thought. The series turns out to be 24 episodes long and the second half is not that much better in turns of story, but at least there is more mecha action, and there is a bit of closure at the end. Hard to say whether it's worth watching all 24 episodes.
