Good because I don't need to waste my brain cell to guess how all the hundreds of permutation of different color mix-up may entail in terms of look and power. The anime can focus on something else, which is good.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Every time I'm about to write something positive about this show, I remember the Naked attack names and can't help but laugh at it. So instead of formulating a sophisticated opinion I'll just shout "Go, Naked girls, go!".

Wakaba best girl.

I don't get all this "ass-pull" complaints. The writer chose this way to make Aoi save them (and maybe introduct a new feature). If that didn't happen, he's chose something else. Could be something more "credible"? Maybe. But the outcome would be the same anyway.

The sad thing about this post is that the girls are unfortunately not naked, but they are in the manga adaptation though.

Not spoilers as manga volume one only goes partway into episode four... Yes, I bought one.

Indeed, they show nipples in the manga so will have to see what the BDs look like, less steam, no tree branches or not...

But interesting about naked in the manga is that only Naked Rang is named Naked. The hammer is Vivid Impact and the sword is Vivid Blade.

Oh, and the manga says that the possible dockings are Vivid Blue, Vivid Green and Vivid Yellow. Sadly I guess this means no Vivid Black with Rei. Doesn't say what Vividred means... Just Akane alone I guess.

Remember, Momo has a Vivid form, ti was shown back when they were promoting the show. That's not the limit of the Vivid forms, Rei could always happen, though she would be Vivid Purple though technically.

Anyway
The problem with people's understanding of this whole situation is either not enough exposure to Japan, or just finding something to whine about. Watch lots of Japanese movies/shows and you'll learn that it's not outside their belief system to have a 'ghost' of a living person. Akane's spirit aided Aoi during that sequence. It was not some techno-babble related to the Vivid system, it was their bonds with each other.

And, the thing about the boomerang...you're just grasping at straws at that point. It's an anime, it's stylish to watch the boomerang do that. There's no reason to try and apply physics and other such nonsense when the show has already had keys forming out of nowhere, and girls fusing with each other, not to mention that there's some unlimited Energy source that was created by someone.

It's a fictional story, not a documentary or a scientific exposition.

Rei...is really starting to get on my nerves. She's at the bottom of my character rankings now. She's never been all that high on them anyway, but yeah.

That was a really amazing episode! I cried a lot during it T_T Especially when Aoi talked about how she tried so hard for Akane's sake ;_; I never expected the episode to be THAT good, and never expected them to pull off things how they did o_o

I would have been unable to continue the show if Akane had died, so I'm really glad that she's fine now. And I'm also glad that they took it quite seriously how badly she was hurt, and really exposed that things are not always going to go so well.

Hrm, on one hand WakabaxMomo is pretty entertaining, but on the other I really see Wakaba and Himawari as more of an actual pairing. The Momo moments are funny, but the Himawari moments are really adorable ~

Course, she could just take the Ryuudo route and have em both xD

Ah man, I just LOVE this show!!!

And wow, I really am bad at shutting up when talking about this xD
EDIT
OH! And Aoi's now number 2 on my rankings! With Wakaba at 3, and Akane in first place!

Just because Momo will get a key and a Pink Pallet Suit doesn't mean she can dock with Akane, however, I should correct my prior statement as the manga doesn't say other forms are impossible so perhaps Vivid Purple and Vivid Pink are still out there... For now it just lists the three dockings we have seen so far and says their completed forms are different and that Akane must be one partner in it with one other person.

This was amazing imo. Action was very good and the story is actually something I can take serious right now. Props to this, seriously!
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

This is mostly a show about girls yet it made me cry manly tears.

Best episode so far.

Docking: Rei + Himawari. Would have been the best thing ever in this show.

Didn't like this filler that much, the plot was more over the place than normal. Akanes soul being in a boomerang (how convenient) them not being able to survive a laser, but can easily withstand a explosion that completely disintegrates a sky scraper. I hope some interesting arc is done in the last few episodes, i still want to know more about the archer girl!

How can you consider this to be a filler when it's an original series?

Because this anime is incredibly shallow

Using the same fanservice angles every episode, at least do something creative with it if you were going for eye candy

I like the teamwork and strong bond of friendship between them. Wow, they really planned to fire 109 of those at the Alone, for a 4% chance of termination..
5/5.

Eh, not a bad fight. The Naked Rang turning into a jet booster is quite convenient though but that is not much of an ass pull.

This episode was decent for me. I feel like I'm finally getting into the series a bit.
I find stupid that the girls can't dock with each other, and only with Akane. However, I felt like I finally got to see a group battle strategy in action, and I love that.

Didn't the barrier go down before the bomb exploded? I thought they mentioned something about permanent damage to the environment... Atmosphere? Who needs that?

The Vivid System only allows Aoi, Wakaba, and Himawari to dock with Akane but not each other? Aww... Why, Professor Isshiki? While this is still decent, nevertheless, I want more docking. :)
