Not-so-bad episode.
What's up with that Akane swag glasses o_o

This ep felt a bit rushed... oh well~ I guess it's better than getting 4 slow episodes with almost the same pattern just to introduce the girls.

And I'm starting to like Vivid Green more than Vivid Blue :D

Question: Is "Chesto!" a real thing in Kendo or whatever or was that a reference to Katanagatari?

This series so far reminds me of the genre's olden days where you look the other way in the face of iffy plot and character development. The show must be catering towards an older audience that would be reminded back in the day when anime wasn't so well thought out. The fact the new recruit knew how to dock without being told just takes the cake.

Plus, lolibutt fanservice.

Eh..

this is pretty stupid :L The psuedo yuri harem is wierding me out to much
I kinda want to see what the last combination character design will be though, basically the only thing that interests me in this.

Although to be fair I basically skimmed through the entire episode and paid attention to nothing. I didnt miss anything quality changing did I?

If you really want to fit in, just put Legend of the Galactic Heroes in your top 5 and have it be the only 10-rated anime in your list.

Ya know, those are good for keeping your identity a secret. Glasses are miraculous that way.

.....You kind of did. There were a bunch of new ass-shots and crotch-shots that weren't present in episode 1 and 2.

Very true. Also the lack of reaction to flying magical girls, giant monster snake things and a rodent for a grandfather. Then of course the whole understanding how to transform and having perfect flying skills and not questioning the whole fusing thing...

But the anime is fun overall, I didn't expect anything special from plot or characters anyway xD.

Loved it again! Voltron Form Blazing Sword! Err... I mean, Vividblade Lock Off 200% Power! Final Operation! Whatever, love it... can't wait for hikikomori Vivid Yellow!

How did they know to dock? How did they trust each other so soon? After 2 matches of martial arts combat like they had, they know each other intimately already... that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it LOL

I heard news that this Anime will have a turning point at ep5.
Hopefully something serious will happen.

Well, in Akane's case, a tomato would be more fitting. She would have looked like a suckling pig though, so they left it out XD

I would have liked to see an akane-suckling pig. Because right now, I'm hungry.

Makes sense, as he says after epside 4 the character introductions will be done so we can get down to the serious business! Sadly that means just 8 episodes left for the story. I hope it isn't too rushed but I'm confident I will enjoy every second.

Wow, the writing in this is so terrible, I feel like laughing my ass off at times >___<; Most of the episode, in fact. Well, this anime is still entertaining, and I'm wondering if it will improve, so I'm sticking with it.

Looking forward to that kawaii hikkikomori girl in the next episode! ^__^

I don't care if its rushed. I don't care if this episode wasn't well received in Japan. As long as i get my close-up crotch shots and yuri transformation scenes, I'll eat this show as if I have no brain to realize this is just a generic show.

10/10


10/10 Would read again.

Hey, is this a real thing, or are they making a Katanagatari reference here?

Actually, it was probably used as a engrish-slang from Kendo terminology.
In kendo points are counted from four strike points, that is:
Men (head)
Do (chest) <---- I think this is what shes screaming out
Tsuki (throat)
Kote (hand)

Kendo disciple must yells his/her attack targets to earn points. It is funny though that she was constantly yells 'chesto' means that she was thinking about it way too much..

I see you haven't seen Katanagatari - my point was that in that show Togame says "Cheerio!" and it is later pointed out to her that the term she should have been using was "Chesto!" so when I saw it here too I figured it was either a reference to Katanagatari or it's an actual term, which judging by your post is essentially the case.

I have edited my post while ago, I was mistaken.
Apparently in kendo they must say their attacks or they will not earn any points.
The reference: http://www.sckendo.ca/kendo-point-areas.shtml

And yes, I have not seen Katanagatari. I think I will put it to my ptw now, looks like a good show.

Yeah but it's also good that we don't spend time with every character reacting and asking the same shit even though it seems little strange and rushed.

Wakaba really looked like Miku in that transformation scene.
Not a lot of other things to say except for me laughing the entire time.
Everytime that fan service pops up I start to laugh for some reason... ಠ_ಠ

Akane is pretty bold to start "docking" with a girl she has only known for a day or two.

Momo's been kidnapped! That whole chase was awesome!

Those eyes!

I just realized, during the Vivid* transformations, they censored the legs in the TV version. I think it looked better in the TV version with the shiny-pants.

It took me a while to get used to Strike Witches' bloomer/pantsu outfit but I guess this time it's fine.

I'm not expecting a deep story but it was pretty fun watching the whole transformation and docking bit. Akane+Wakaba transformation was cool. I'm guessing Wall-E will be the next member :p

They transferred schools. And in the same class as the bow girl. Things would not get more interesting.
So wakaba is also one of them now. Hurray for more yuri.
Holy the robot eye saw the whole thing. And Akane the haram lead.

Aw crap... these transformation sequences are too good. Shame there's only one left, the yellow ranger, red and yellow ranger zord and the full on megazord that consists of all the 4 girls (if it's even possible)

That lone ranger though...

My thoughts on this episode...

It was cute how they pretend the UN are the good guys in this anime. Man, make-believe sure is nice! so much less dark and evil than real life. No human and/or child trafficking to speak of in this anime. Thinking of it now, that "Alone" isn't nearly as big a threat as the (UN-ELECTED) United Nations.

Maybe they should have used some other fictional force, instead of the United Nations...

The naivete is killing me. Ask Libya about UN peacekeeping! they can tell you more! A lot more. You know, Libya was a pretty freaking nice country before - and now it's literally a smoldering crater. All to "free" them from their duly elected leader. Thank God for UN peacekeeping and/or humanitarian aid missions! I'm sure those guys are much happier living in a pile of rubble than they were beautiful cities anyway.

Why do I get hung up on details like this? because it bothers the shit out of me when my preferred form of entertainment / escape from reality throws some of the worst tyrants in the world a bone, I guess.
