Synopsis

Papika and Cocona hold the keys to open the door. When the two girls meet, their adventures in a different time and different overlapping dimension called "Pure Illusion" begin. Many things in Pure Illusion will stand in the girls' way on their search for the mysterious crystal called the "Shard of Mimi," an item that is said to grant any wish. However, when the girls find themselves in danger, the Shard of Mimi shines, and they are able to transform.

Have you ever felt like a show was made just for you? One that, in spite of all its flaws, you can see some good in it? Flip Flappers is this to me, at least so far.

Flip Flappers is fun, original and refreshing. Believe me, watching the first episode and seeing Papika surfing in the air with her hoverboard is extremely refreshing from a lot of LN derivatives and High School Garbage I've the displeasure of wasting my time on.

Then there is the superb animation, the surprisingly memorable musical scores, and the vibrant colors ties everything together for a splendid 20 minute episode of read more

What can I say? I'm 5 episodes in and Flip Flappers continues to impress me with its originality and absolutely gorgeous animation and art style. Every episode gives us something different and I look so damn forward to Thursdays because of this show it's unreal.

The story is told in a nonlinear fashion in that there are major breaks in chronology between episodes, which leaves us filling in the blanks as to what happened. In fact, filling in the blanks is something you'll get used to doing with Flip Flappers, because it doesn't really explain anything at all. Far from being a negative, however, this read more

Flip Flappers blew us out right at it's first episode with its Ghibli-like art style and animation along with its pretty unique setting and interesting pair of main characters.

Flip Flappers has a very subtle way of storytelling which a lot of viewers are not that fond of. Instead, every episode is packed with fun and action which seems to convey that this show focuses more on entertainment rather than narrative(also since this is an original anime). But to sum it up, the plot tells us the story of Cocona and Papika and their adventures as they journey through this world called Pure Illusion to obtain read more

Reposting since the first one got deleted "rolls eyes"

I have gotten into a really bad habit of judging something by its cover. For some reason something with girls sparkling and magical power just never appealed to me and seemed boring and too happy. But boy was I wrong, this show has potential to be super bomb af because this show depicts hatred, happiness, confusion and others. To me this show is a show that is pure imagination and it is something that I have been looking for.

Story/Character: Unrated

Unrated because it is only starting but it has something to it that captivates me and holds my read more
