ALDNOAH.ZERO Volume 1 Synopsis

“If you like smart characters, a well thought-out world, and a story that's not afraid to break some of popular fiction's most common rules, this anime is for you.” - kotaku.com

Fifteen years have passed since the Hyper Gate collapsed on the moon's surface. -- A catastrophe known as the HEAVENS 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, who swears his allegiance to Princess Assylum… Their fates cross as both societies watch in horror as a missile crashes on Asseylum's motorcade. This incident marked the beginning of a new war.

ALDNOAH.ZERO Volume 2 Synopsis

While being interrogated under the assumption that he knew something, Slaine remained silent to protect Princess Asseylum, who had saved his life when they first met five years ago. Meanwhile, Inaho, Asseylum and the others head to the United Forces of Earth Headquarters on the Deucalion, as Count Saazbaum prepared to launch his attack. Having learned Count Saazbaum's ulterior motives, Slaine sets out to save Asseylum. The fierce battle on the snowy field build in intensity -- there, Inaho, Slain and Asseylum find themselves in an unexpected situation.
