THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Lmao Wakaba. So tough with those glares.

I lol'd @ Himawari many times this episode. She's almost like a brat this episode imo. The fight was okay I guess. FINAL OPERATION! You mad, Rei? Ya, she should be.

Well I thought we would be seeing a new vivid form since this episode focused on the friendship of Wakaba and Himawari, but it was 95% filler, 4% action, and 1% Rei naked ass shot at the end. It was a good episode though.

Well I was hoping for a longer alone fight but I guess not LOL. Enjoyed it anyways. I have a felling a 4-way-docking is coming at the end LOL.

I thought that was really cute and cool. She feels very protective of her cute friend.
And Himawarii was really cute, with her "bodyguard/butler" Wakaba. The thought of how she thought of the Pins Wakaba gave her as precious was really cute and heartwarming too.

SO this episode was mostly about Wakaba's and Himawari's friendship. I loved it.

We got to see very little of Akane and Aoi but it was alright.

I don't think Rei is a bad person. She is just focused on getting her parents and her planet back. If destroying the engine will bring the parents and the planet back, wouldn't you do this yourself if given the chance??

And well I guess, we don't know what would happen if the engine would be destroyed. There just wouldn't be electricity and whatnot right? I dnt even know.

But I will wait patiently to find out.

Anyways back to the episode. So REi only has 4 chances. And i think there is only 3 episodes left.
And I'm guessing we won't see VividRed Opeartion until the very end. maybe a VividRainbow?? haha jk.

Damn.... Himawari's moe.... my body wasn't ready for this......

But really, they should advance the plot, they are slowly running out of time.

Pairing Bonding episode!

So this time its Aoi x Akane and Wakaba x Himawari.
Seriously I thought Green and Yellow would docking with each other in this episode.
Apparently this would not happen..

And we still left out in the dark about Alone and Rei motives..
I'm afraid they will put the finale as OVA or Movies.

Oh yeah, this is the first time I noticed that their school has boys too, lol.

An awesome Himawari x Wakaba episode!

I lol at Wakaba giving those guts the stare. The men turned white! And I lol at Himawari-chan getting revenge at Wakaba to turning her into a servant for a day.

Himawari-chan is absolutely cute, but Wakaba is one fine babe as well. Tomboyish characters can be charming at times.

And damn at Rei's hot ass! And dem lowl budget screenies

Well, given certain circumstances, I don't think she's a bad person yet. It's just that her intentions and what she has been doing is considered to be 'bad'. Also, there's no proof yet that the destruction of the Manifestation Engine will bring her parents back, was there?

I will guess that some catastrophe will happen or at the very least, the place won't look like a paradise as much it as been. Regarding Rei's plan, I got a feeling that everything she's been doing will be revealed very soon, maybe next episode.

They've only got three episodes left so next episode is a good guess.

It was mentioned that there where boys in the school in a previous episode when they where talking about the school trip they said that the boys would be going to a mountain and the girls would be going to a island.
Tho this was also the first episode i noticed a boy in that school and lets be honest here most of us aren't watching this anime to notice the boys in there school.
I have to say that those boys sure are lucky with the girls walking around with those tight pants.

Just add yuri to it. That way the show would have at least *some* purpose. Now it's going nowhere with random ass-shots and friendship crap.

The fight scenes are awfully predictable and there's QUALITY everywhere. The only thing going for the show is the character development.

So many still shots. Overall the quality has been going down these past few eps.

It's as if they spent 90% of the budget on the transformation sequences and battles and left the rest of the show to interns.

A-1 really need to stop picking up so many shows otherwise they'll be the next J.C ( Though you could say they already are at this point )

The score in this episode was particularly good. Liked the sad piano version of the theme song, and also the piece of music right before Wakaba and Himawari transform.

I don't really have a choice, just saying. I'm on my XP since my laptop is being repaired, and I can't download .mkv 720p videos without them lagging. (The sound and video will be off.) My only choices are 480p .mkv or 720p .mp4 or .avi. Thankfully DeadFish has those so.

Maybe am the strange one but i would have hit at Wakaba and ignore Himawari. And she was hotter with her casual shirt and jean shorts. Love simple clothes like that in a young girl. They elevate her youthfulness.
Lol i guess that would have surprised Wakaba.

The Wakaba voice is also growing on me after I initially thought it was a bit weird. I also appreciate that they wear different clothes. I know it's a fanservice thing, but it's also more realistic - not that I need realism in a show like this, it's just nice to see them wear different clothes when they aren't at school.

And regarding the animation quality in this episode - I hope symbv sees this post - I wonder if this wasn't something they did on the fly because of the initial popularity of Himawari. Like if Wakaba turned out to be the most popular character then it would have been about her in different outfits looking all kawaii. So they saved this episode until they knew who was the most popular girl, and hence the quality was relatively bad. Just a dumb theory I thought of because of what was said in previous episode threads about Himawari's popularity with the fans. Seems like quite a coincidence that the character everyone loves is the one with a fanservice-centric episode.

I highly doubt it had anything to do with a character's popularity.

These eps take a month or so to develop. They likely already had 8 eps done before the show even aired so there's no way they could have taken any of that into account considering Himawari was introduced in like ep 3 I think.

Yes but they could have produced the episodes out of order. This could be one they intentionally started later and then stuck in earlier. Not saying that's what happened. It was just a thought.

It's likely just a budget/time issue rather than intentional. I highly doubt they wanted to make an ep look bad. I don't think any producers want that. However, sometimes it's unavoidable. The choice is either delay the ep/show ( like GnP last season ), or just derp an ep and polish it for the BDs ( Psycho Pass ep 18 comes to mind )

Also, we've seen A-1 have many quality derps in their other anime e.g. Magi, Shinsekai, and even SAO.

OK, that makes sense. Not like this episode had a ton going on anyway so you half ass it and then polish later for the BD.

looks like everyone is taking a like into Wakaba x Himawari :) Wakaba x Momo is fine too xD here's a question. why cant the other 2 members combine into another vivid when Akane and one of them is combined? @@ Hey gramps should start implementing that!

meanwhile, looks like Rei is running out of time......

Well no there is no proof. But based on the episodes so far, that's what she has been made to believe.

And yeah, It is possible that her intentions will be discovered as soon as next ep.
or how you described it about the catastrophe. That would be interesting to see. Based on how long that takes, it could even leave room for a 2nd season.
I wish. haha.

I don't think they spent all budget already. Probably just made this ep cheap to save some for latter eps.

And yeah. I still wounder with whom to pair Akane but Wakaba x Himawari is OTP for me
