That was a fantastic ending. I love the scene where Takuto broke Wako's seal.
Anyways, this was a great series.

Animation of the fight scenes was great!! Gave it a 7/10 because the final episode left a little too much unresolved.

30 minutes removed from seeing the Star Driver series finale and my jaw is still on the floor. Usually a really good anime will get a crappy ending. It's very rare that a really good anime that gets an ending so good that it eclipses every episode that came before it. Tremendous job to the BONES staff on this one! -- KIRABOSHI! o_o>

Great ending, but it needs an epilogue. I'm glad we got to hear Monochrome again.

Watanabe FTW!

Well, then too bad for the Kiraboshi gang, they only found out as to how foolish they all are. Man, I wish that there is some Wako fanservice in this ep, but I can only wish.....I wonder as how Takuto and Sugata can go back to earth that now Tauburn is totally wrecked in space?

HEAD SHOULD HAVE WON. Head confirmed for badass villain, giving the you were all just pawns! pretty cool when the glittering crux all helped Takuto. you know the ending really wasn't so bad though.

I thought Takuto was going to turn down Wakuto and confess his true ... homo bromance for Suagta.

Would have laughed if the world ended since he broke Wako's seal. also would have been amusing if he turned evil then killed Sugata and used Samekh to control everything and ally with his father!

ahhh some true trolling could have been done but still decent ending.

lots of boring filler, villains of the week and all but still thought it was good somewhere between 7-8/10.

2nd season would be fine and there's more to work with.

I was confused why it ended with them abandoned in space. It was the best finale ever, except the fact that it was sort of just one giantly awesome battle after another - it flowed good though.

All the cybodies are destroyed but a lot of other things are unresolved. Although i guess Wako admits she wants a harem.

Well that was a fun ending, even if it did just feel like Gurren Lagann on FAAAAABULOUS instead of Spiral Power (I know that can be said for the whole series, but this episode especially).

I guess the only big question left is what the heck the Cybodies/Sarina/Prez really are, but at this point I don't really care that much. Sure it would've been nice to know, but it isn't THAT big of a hindrance on the overall plot/enjoyment.

KIRABOSHI! (I will be doing this to random people at conventions this year. I'm hoping for a success rate of at least 50%)
Ha-cha!

4 out 10? I'm surprise you can finish the series then. Good ending to the series but kinda disappointed with the last scene. Kinda strange when Sugata was going to sacrifice himself and Wako didn't even cry at all. Disappointed that Samekh didn't put up a better fight. 8/10

They can easily make a sequel or a movie out of this.

FUCKING AMAZING!!!!! I loved Star Driver from the start all the way to the amazingly epic end. When Takuto broke Wako's seal I was freaking out. That was the last thing I would have expected. I will miss Takuto and all his Awesome Cyberbody fights. TT.TT

Fabulous last episode but i can't say the same for the whole series since at times it got tiring. Now after seeing it reaching the end i still wonder why this series needed 25 episodes. It was just doing the "fight of the week" every episode until it reaches the end. Did we really needed so many fights of the week?
Many characters seem useless. Why were they even presented? Just so we can see more hot girls and pretty boys? And what about our little Alien girl with the mini yellow fox thing? What was the reason they showed her talking like that giving signals of not being just a human friend of Wako as we first thought if she had no role at all?
It was a fun show with some nice art and eye candy but not really a very complete and solid show.

Did Wako choose anyone? There was the running bet between Sugata and Takuto that Sugata will give up Wako if Takuto defeated him. Well... didn't he? Hmmm.

alright story, awsome animation and sound, awsome fight in the end.

my only gripe would be that wako didnt choose one of them, i mean why present all that tension if your not going to resolve it??! i hate when shows do that. other than that this show was a 7.5-8/10

Very nice final episode. and i see they put the Monochrome song in there again. Nice touch for the final episode! I missed that tune.
The fighting scenes were also great. I also had a feeling the rest of the Crux would rebel against Tokio.

I'll give it a 8/10

After giving it a chance of 15 episodes, I needed to see the end of what had become the galactic garbage.

The direction, character development and scriptwriting were even more awful in this final episode than in the last 3 episodes. Wish I could rewind time just to drop the series after the first episode. It was kind of a Gurren Lagann rip without the talent nor buildup. 6/10 overall, just because the pink-haired sisters' arc was really cool.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!!!! HANDS DOWN THE BEST ANIME THIS SEASON!!

i somehow knew that takuto just wouldnt let sugata go like that. and now wako can leave the island.

This is the kind of ending i havent seen in a long time. it was amazing unlike most of the animes that recently came out.

and the way they PLAYED MONOCHROME!!!!!

THIS EARNS A SPOT IN MY FAVORITE ANIME LIST AND 10/10 even though some episodes sucked!!

.....what the fuck was that? OH GEE, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SKY, LET'S MOVE ON.

ahahahah tauburn was able to beat samekh /all alone/; it would've made more sense if the whole kiraboshi gang fought alongside him. oh well, the kiraboshi moment was pretty touching, and am gonna miss the show. ( unfortunately LMFAO even though it's so crappy ) i'll give it a 7 b/c i liked head a lot. ; w ;

Yep. OT3 endings ftw, man.

The ending was kind of like the show: a bit predictable and filled with Tauburn being the indestructible, haxxy piece of fabulousness we know and love, but fun. I liked it.

And hey, there were rainbows and more Headdo-punching scenes from Takuto just like I was hoping (kind of). That and the return of Monochrome make the ending in my book.

GG's subs made this episode extra fabulous too ("What are you, 12?" and "My dad won't steal your soul" are classics).

(Just curious, though, but why exactly would it ever be a good thing for humans to have cybodies? Might just be me, but I think there are other ways of bonding with your friends than beating the crap out of each other in giant, alien weapons of mass destruction.)

Head: "You were all just pawns."
Kiraboshi: "We were just pawns the whole time?"
Well are you really that surprised?

Probably the best line in the whole damn show appeared in the last episode where Head says: "Glittering Crux? What are you, twelve?".
yeah rofl
Pretty much. Head, I always knew you were win.

So let's see, after the childish Kiraboshi realizes they were used like the clueless children they are, they get upset and protect Takuto. You know, that fabulously flamboyant guy that is their sworn enemy. Did I mention everyone's cluelessness at how they can't recognize each other because they've got these awesome masks that can cloak their entire identity?
Because they're kids and they got youth on their side, their marks magically appear out of nowhere, allowing them to regain control of all their Cybodies which, by the way, are prisoners of Samehk and are attacking Takuto.

Whoops, break time. Baby Shiba commercial time! Okay, we're back. Now that the mood is ruined by those ridiculously cute Chiba's, let's get back to SD. Kiraboshi proceeds to save Takuto while Head... watches? I guess? That's always a great move on the villain's part. Yep, let's just stand there and watch all my minions get defeated.

Blah blah, Takuto defeats head. Now we have Samehk. Sugata decided he would unseal Samehk, am I right? Pretty sure that's what happened. All right, so, now that Samehk is unsealed, Sugata is going to seal Samehk again. Did I get that right? I think that's the way it went. Someone please tell me... WHAT WAS THE FUCKING POINT OF THIS?!

*Siiiighs* Takuto stops Sugata from doing this and blows Samehk up in space. Wasn't the world supposed to get destroyed? Just how did Takuto stop this? Oh right, power of youth. Also, Wako never makes a choice between Takuto or Sugata. What the hell is that?

And lastly, we have Head, whom after trying to destroy the world, is back in his floating bubble talking to his old buddies. This guy just tried to destroy the world, didn't he? Why are you talking to him? Where are the Zero Time policeman slapping handcuffs on him?

In the end we have Wako with no decision, a plot that made absolutely no sense, a villain with a ridiculous motive, and Sugata and Takuto floating in space talking about the pretty sky. All right. That's Star Driver for you.

I suppose I should mention some good points. The music was nothing short of brilliant. The animation, as usual, was awesome. Bones did that right. The voice acting was also good. Hm, I don't know what to think of this show at all. Even though that was one of the most shitty endings I've ever seen in terms of senselessness, it was actually pretty entertaining to watch. I think I'll give this a 4/10.

Note: Sorry if I'm offending any Star Driver fans, because I know you love this shows fabulousness. This is just me venting. :s

Head already broke two of the three maidens' seals when Sugata joined the Glittering Crux and wasn't exactly going to stop there. Why make it easier for him or someone else to try and unseal some sort of weapon capable of destroying the whole world when he could do something about it?

(I would agree with you that Head had some weird motives, though. They and the rest of the plot still pissed me less than the explanations in Fractale, though, so I'll give cut it some slack there.)

Why the hell did head want to destroy the world in the first place.. and it seems like Takuto and Sugata are stuck in outer space or some crap? Oh and Wako is still being a baby and don't wanna figure out who she actually likes either.

Ending? What ending?
Conclusion? What conclusion?

Disappointing.

Wow wow wow!!! Great ending, I was scared that it wasn't going to end well! But OMG!! Head hijacking Samekh I was like WTF?!! Then Takuto breaking Wako's seal then Sugata being the martyr and then Takuto saving him! AWESOME! Now we know why Wako said "I wish you never came to the island" because she doesn't like loving two guys at once! haha had me worried there from the preview.

The whole fight scene of this episode was epic and full of excitement. They even brought back Monochrome, the best music in the entire damn show.

Hell, it's been such a long while since I've seen an over-powered boss in an action/mecha anime get destroyed once and for all, rather than having to seal it away.

And like many other mecha animes, it ends up with the final scene in space where the main character(s) in their beaten up machines, watching the sun shining it's rays from behind planet earth.

Marvelous, truly Marvelous.
