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!


I don't know why they can't any Vivid combos without Akane,probably has something to do with that accident she went through as a kid or whatever.

I'm just going to make up some BS reason:
It saves A-1 money.

Oh & Space Brothers is still the best anime ever,in my opinion.Even when competing with Attack on Titan.

I too was thinking about the reason why the show doesn't uses more Vivid combinations, and I'd place my bet on the assumption that the writers themselves doesn't really know what to do with the series enough to give it a more fleshed out content, so they just rely on the motto of "just go with it" when it comes to go in-depth with the technological aspects in the show's world. The show already dodged the explanations when Akane was able to combine with total strangers with no problem, when it was clearly stated that the participants must know each other well, and as it was noticable some episodes ago, it was never explained why the other girls couldn't combine with each other, and the girls themselves didn't even questioned the reason behind this. Or heck, there is no passable explanation about how total strangers too know how to handle Vivid abilities and such right from the get-go, and for a recent example, it wasn't mentioned at all that Akane's Vivid weapon can double as a jet engine (and asspull) of sorts.

In a more pessimistic tone I would further assume that the writers know too well that ass shots and yuri undertones will propably sell the series either way so they don't even try to invest more work on the story department, so it would be "understandable" how the writing turned to be lazy so far.

Did no one watch the episodes and notice that ALL the keys came from Akane? So it'd only make sense that they can only dock with Akane. I really don't get why people continue to be confused on this...

As for Rei...she's just really really gullible. Like, to the max. They destroyed her world for a reason, and they're not going to backpedal and resurrect it after getting rid of another world for another reason.

A great WakabaxHimawari episode~ Yeah, the art took a hit, but hopefully that's the last we see of that. And they even continued shipping Akane and Aoi ~

Kinda worried Rei might get inbetween Akane and Aoi, but maybe Momo will save their relationship?

This eps's quality is dropped dramatically compared to previous ones. I'm disappointed

I would say that if this anime is more than one cour long, then it will be much more likely we see more Vivid combinations.
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.

i know a lot of viewers think of the same thing too. in fact, i'd say it's pretty obvious.
Find something that Himawari probably possesses already

I love that this product is unisex (at least I assume that's what the 男女 means).

Small aircraft pilots have had various versions of this forever. You spend 5 hours in a small Cessna, sometimes you just gotta go. Can't exactly pull over and go in the bushes hahaha.

This episode was a decent watch, although it's not troll-like as the previous ones. Hopefully the next episode will troll me more.

No, the correct way to say it is "The amount of opportunity wasted on this show is ridiculous". As for budget, considering a large part of it may have been spent on sakuga, animation, sound and other technical stuff, I won't call it wasted as we can see the high quality achieved on those aspects.

Pretty good episode.
It's surprisingly interesting and not as boring as I would think spending most of the episode modeling would be.

Pfft, anybody who's ever been around seagulls knows they're never that pleasant. Although it was funny to see Rei just standing around and making small talk like some incidental character.

Now it's going nowhere with random ass-shots and friendship crap.
Um... "friendship crap"?... this is magical girl after-all...

This episode was about what I expected. After the previous one, I figured we were due for a friendship-focused one. With only 3 left, I would expect the "final battle" to begin.

So far this show is following the magical-girl stereotype perfectly (almost mockingly so)... I hope that doesn't stop.

Random guys hit on Himawari.
Wakaba uses Death Stare.
It's super effective!

Baka Wakaba! Baka Wakaba! Baka Wakaba! Tongue twister :3
