I don't even know whether I should laugh or cry because of how ridiculous this show is...

I mean, come on... Naked Rang?! Naked Impact?! Docking Kiss?!!!??! ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS!

This show is just... sooooo gay, a bit too much even for me, and I stomached and actually enjoyed Strike Witches. And can actually keep a straight face when watching SW... (outside of both season's episode 7)

I mean... Come on girls, you girls are giggling and chatting in the air about your powers while ships are being sunk, blown up, and planes being shot down...

A bunch of ship blown up, because one of them secretly dislike tomato... Seriously... Tomato... There's at least several hundred casualties over A FUCKING FRUIT!

And here I am expecting a Strike Witches level of story... (And that is not asking for too much)

This Vividred Operation make Strike Witches look like a genuine masterpiece in comparison... I am really having trouble taking this show seriously.


^Haha. Look at this fucking retard.
What the hell are you even trying to say? Huh?

.....Tomatoes are vegetables >.<

I'm enjoying this show quite a bit. For what it is, it's doing a great job. Personally, I find the ecchi/sexual stuff kinda funny, actually. It's sorta weird but also fits the vibe. And the animation is quite good, as are the action sequences. I'm still in.

"in other anime they atleast have shown some emotion when something goes wrong" - well partly I agree, partly people are are whining about her being emotional (about having lied to her friend)~

That said I don't think I know too many people who would actually be fine with sharing all their experiences, memories, consciousness and all that with someone else.

Also, atleast in my version the grandpa said "one of you is _subconsciously_ rejecting it". Means probably that you cany act like "I'd be fine with it, if it is for saving people" all day, if you still somewhat reject it, won't work.

What the hell did learn in school? Huh?


As surprising as this sounds... Tomato is a fruit...

Before you call people retard... Make sure that you are actually right...

From Oxford Dictionary

Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable?

The confusion about 'fruit' and 'vegetable' arises because of the differences in usage between scientists and cooks. Scientifically speaking, a tomato is definitely a fruit. True fruits are developed from the ovary in the base of the flower, and contain the seeds of the plant (though cultivated forms may be seedless). Blueberries, raspberries, and oranges are true fruits, and so are many kinds of nut. Some plants have a soft part which supports the seeds and is also called a 'fruit', though it is not developed from the ovary: the strawberry is an example.

As far as cooking is concerned, some things which are strictly fruits, such as tomatoes or bean pods, may be called 'vegetables' because they are used in savoury rather than sweet cooking. The term 'vegetable' is more generally used of other edible parts of plants, such as cabbage leaves, celery stalks, and potato tubers, which are not strictly the fruit of the plant from which they come. Occasionally the term 'fruit' may be used to refer to a part of a plant which is not a fruit, but which is used in sweet cooking: rhubarb, for example.

So, the answer to the question is that a tomato is technically the fruit of the tomato plant, but it's used as a vegetable in cooking.


In short.
Tomato is a fruit, that can be used as a vegetable in cooking.

EDIT:
Just to save you from potentially making a fool out of yourself again in similar fashion... Chili is also a fruit.

Reading yall posts, i see so many references to other animes from this one anime. I do agree it reminds me of strike witches but for some reason the dock scene reminds me of this other anime called "simoun" im wondering if im the only one who thought of that anime also. In simoun, the girls must kiss each other and then the Simoun gem in order to turn activate the simoun. Damn Saying that out loud in my mind make me sound like a pervert lol

This anime is not a comedy anime, its supposed to be sci-fi action anime, and these characters aren't performing their roles seriously.

If I compare this to Guilty Crown episode 2, this one is much worse.

Funny thing is that the guy who's doing the script (+screenplay) for this show is the one who did the script (+screenplay) for Guilty Crown, and his best work is about a guy who gets his powers from women's breasts.. yeah.

Largely my reason for slowing starting to dislike this show, as many have said, these characters are too... simple minded. Everything seems so rushed with flat character development.
"Oh, I got new powers and tech, let's just do stuff and I already happen to know all these moves flawlessly and effortlessly."

And I lol'd @ tomatoes being an issue. Was expecting something much more darker that Aoi was holding back from Akane. Fuck, I'd take an excuse of, "Akane...I've been hiding my feelings for you" though, but tomatoes? LOL

Horray for the power of friendship and tomatoes!

Just this once, I'll fulfill whatever your wish is.

I chose my username before I started this series, but it seems very appropriate now. o.0

Anyway, I'm enjoying this series already. True, it has some plot holes, and stuff left unexplained, but it is only ep. 2. It has good art, good music, EPIC transformation sequences, and cute main characters. I hope it doesn't end up like another cookie-cutter "magical girl" anime, though. I'm intrigued enough to keep watching.

Cause friendships have never been ruined over silly misunderstandings >.>

I find it more realistic that the reason they couldn't dock was because of something so trivial. When you're THAT close, trivial things can be the most damaging.

But who here thought it was supposed to be taken seriously?

Also, the guy who directed Strike Witches is the guy directing this. I'm pretty sure that's not the same as the guy who covered Guilty Crown. So no clue where that even came from.

One of the Script Writers, and the Series composer for Sora no Woto is on this. Yes, they did Guilty Crown, but only the first season, which was the GOOD season. It was the second that was horrible.

So, all signs are pointing towards this show being amazing.

But it's obviously not for everyone.

And from what point of view makes that this anime unique?
I mean there are countless of examples in the entertainment industry where to make silly jokes while taking lives of people for granted.
And sadly there are people who joke about such things in real life that don't care about the lives of others at all.

...I have to admit, as ashamed as I am to say it, when they are not talking, I'm freaking loving the action. And props to the writer for making the adults sound like human beings this time. Durin knows that must be so difficult for him to do *coughGuiltyCrowncough*
That being said it hurts my brain hearing the girls talk, so I might as well take back my compliment now

Even though i decided to throw out any realism expectation out of window halfway into the episode, the cheesiness still irked me, action part was also boring imo and story is just run-of-the-mill, happy-go-lucky girls saving the world. I can overlook fanservice if there are other aspects to keep me interested, but at this rate, i'm not sure if i can continue this show anymore.

Might give it more episode because of its popularity and some yuri subtext.

I wonder what the "docked" merged version of the two girls thinks about tomatoes...


Kuroki means black rider, very appropriate for Rei who is in fact a loner classmate of theirs.

So Vivid Yellow will be 13+13+13=39 and her weapon will be Naked Stilettos... And Vivid Green will be 13+13+13+13=52 with Naked Pachinko ball shooters.

But seriously I love this show. It is so much fun, the story doesn't need to be logical. It might be a Sailor Moon parody at this point but who cares? Tomatoes had me laughing so hard, they can't dock because she hates tomatoes... Vivid Blue still doesn't like tomatoes but Vivid Green and Yellow might...

How do you defeat Alone? By working Together!!! This is paying homage to Voltron and all the other team docking shows, Sailor Moon, Strike Witches. It is cheesy but I love cheese, it is delicious.

6/5 how can you not love this show??? BDs preordered, this thing is going to sell very well. It is like otaku bait and they and I am going to eat it up.

Damn you, doctor. No one would've found out that mouth-to-mouth kissing isn't necessary, but you just had to correct them :-P

All in all, this show is very simplistic and cheesy, but I didn't expect anything else and it's surprisingly fun when you're fine with a few stupidities here and there. I could complain about how stuffed toys can't move, you shouldn't just freeze human bodies or you shouldn't chat with your friend while your allies are dying. I could even say that two people with no secrets between each other are a pretty scary thought.

But this is just not the show for this. It's not meant to make perfect sense and it doesn't seem to take itself too seriously, so scratch all that. I came for teenage butts and action and I adhere to that.

So the sheer enjoyability of the pulp in this episode was amazing!

Just the first half of battle porn was immense and then mahou shoujo powering up just gave it even more 'fuck yeah!'

Also, pan shots under crotches is where this creators genius lies!
