Aldnoah.Zero leaves two major setup-points dangling in its premiere. The first is the question of what Aldnoah really is, and for now I’m not going to touch this, and assume very simply, that it is an energy source of some kind, plus-minus lots of other, useful knowledge. The second, however, is the origin story of the Vers Empire – that of how the Vers Empire was birthed, and its highly radical belief-system formed, and that’s what the whole post is going to be about. I’m not going to pretend this is anything other than speculation, though, nor that my analysis is in any way exhaustive or perfect.
Yeah, this is going to take more than one post.
