Dat key. (probably also a symbol for friendship I guess)

Well, if I had my say in this episode, I thought it was kinda meh. Vividred RED And that punch.. I saw most of this coming but good thing that Rei came to her senses now :3. Overall. 6/10 on this series.

Yay, friends:


Bye Rei-chan ;.;

So... how did they all survive their thousand foot drops? If the pallet suits at least had their lights and/or jets fluttering, I could understand them using the remaining power at the last minute to prevent impact, but they where depicted as dead.

This scene reads: Blu-ray is on sale! :))

During the scene of Akane passing through that giant glowing red blob, all I can think of was "give Rei back!" Go Shinji go! lol.

So.. VividGelion has finally ended in a positive note. Even though no one feels sorry for all those military personnels losing their lives so the girls could have their "friendship moment," I will remember them as real heroes of this anime xD. This proves once again anime's rule-of-thumb: main characters' sentimental feelings are worth sacrificing everything!

Rei is stupid for believing in that crow; Akane is stupid for releasing her "friend" straight to the crow's stomach. The result? Destruction of epic proportion. But hey, Rei is so cute, and the two's fusion form is so baddass that I will forgive them :)

The ending reminds me of why I watched this series in the first place, its Opening Song.

Final Score: too much non-sense but enjoyable nonetheless, 7/10

to bad no 4 way or even 5 way 'dock' but I can see why some rated as low as they have but I think ill be sticking with my 7.5/10 the series never really tried to be anything it wasnt' it was 'fun' to watch if you're into this type of genre. And many 'friendship moments' (cant wait to see that scene on blu ray haha)

And it seems Rei came back to say hello in the end after leaving?

Did Rei's world just got restored by some flying paper thing? Lmao.

Also they didn't explained shit about "them", aka those beings who are responsible for everything, plus with that at the end (foreshadowing Rei's comeback), brace yourself for season 2 pretty fast.

All Series all and all, i did enjoy it quite a bit, Giving it a 10/10 just because its just like strike witches, hopefully we will get a second season more or less.

I was quite surprised to see Rei's and Akane Docking.

Just like I said, there's no reason to blow up something that could be used in a possible second season.

I was surprised with this last docking. Who would have thought that Akane would be the one to fuse with Rei and not the opposite.
I was expecting to see a Vivid Black but Vivid Red wasn't bad either.

Rei was said to be 'super human' as in, human from her world are made stronger than human from Akane's world. Rei also possessed a very strong power so it somehow makes sense that she would be fit better as the host for the fusion.

It's also good that the Alone respected their part of the deal. The crow was one damn bastard that didn't want to admit that mankind passed the test but the Alone approved of this passing and thus rewarded Rei as they promised.

That last episode was cheesy as fuck but it was still pretty entertaining for me.
I'd say this is worth a decent 6.5/10

Am i the only one curious about the unexplained docking? Rei has no palette suit which from my understanding allows them to dock. Overall 6/10

So Vividred Operation does have a meaning....

Ending is pretty bland I have to say. I guess there won't be much last-episode boost to the BD sales....

The art and sakuga is still top-notched. And some of the stories are on the "so dumb it is so funny" level. So I am contented, but it is also clear that it is not quite in the 10k sales big-hit category.
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.

Not a bad ending, plot was quite shallow (expected), the system by which they dock is still not as well-explained as I had hoped, but hey, we're not here to watch nerds blabber away, right guys?

Friendship can give you infinite power, apparently. Kinda like manliness in Gurren Lagann?

Dude...vivid punch? I was expected a page out of madoka and pull off a super bad ass vivid arrow or something.

Them all docking is what I thought was going to make vividred but I guess it makes story sense to have what happened happened to make vividred.

In any case...this is no Strike Witches. 6/10. Both have to deal with friendship, overcoming your personal barrier, butt and poon shots...heartwarming but this show didn't quite knock it out of the park.

Not bad.
Was a typical "happy end" and expectation of second season... or not.

Rei is a time-traveller or she is a alien?

You can tell that they put most of the money on this last episode's animation. It was really good. And nice, well since i watched the 720p version.

Anyways waah i did not expect the docking between akane and rei to be the VividRed, I thought she would become the purple one or something. :/ But it was a nice surprise, i liked the sign of the VividRed fighter.

So in the end Rei got her world returned and went back to her home. But in the end end she came back, that made me happy.

Because they finally became friends.

Nothing beats the power of friendship.

That was one epic finale.
I was expecting Vividred to use a bow and arrow but the transformation was still epic.

So... what was the point of having Rei "leave" if she was just going to come back like 10 seconds later? Lol, whatever.

Anyway, this episode was incredibly cheesy; but I would not have expected anything else from this show. Overall, the series wasn't too bad - it was no masterpiece but it was decent enough entertainment.

I guess I will now have to find something else to give me my weekly dose of friendship and hot pants.

Not a bad end. Decent series overall, not too great.

I wonder why Rei went to her world and came back right away. I guess she can't live with out her GF Akane lol.

Friendship is so powerful!
I am just wondering about the physics: Event horizon and enough enegery to destroy the universe. I wish the grandpa had told more.
But I am happy now that Akemi could be happy again. Now I can watch something totally different.

I thought it was going to be something Like Vivid Naked Punch. Everything has naked into it.

No All transformation. :( I thought there would be one final transformation where they all combine though Rei also combining was a surprise to me.

4/10.

A C84 doujinshi with all five girls getting gang-banged would have a better plot.

No one also seems to give a shit when whole squadrons of jets and entire naval fleets carrying thousands of people gets destroyed instantly.

Why did I watch this series to completion again? I guess I was expecting something at least on the level of Strike Witches, but this was completely one dimensional and devoid of charm.

Tbh I don't really like the design of Vividred... And of all things her final operation is a punch which is rather meh... Should have just stick to the Rang == but still the final fight was pretty awesome because we got to see all the Vivids for one last time before the series end! :)

The door somewhat reminds me of Doraemon though xD Wonder what could possibly happen if there is a season 2? Something similar to Strike Witches -> Strike Witches 2 plot? @@

The ending was bland and didn't make sense. Then again, the entire show was cliched and never made sense - with one ass-pull after another. This had almost no story with little character development and the characters aren't very interesting.

I was really hoping that this would be the next Strike Witches (a show that I rated a 7/10), but I was unfortunately disappointed. Despite how stupid everything in this show is, it still has some entertainment value. I feel that everything in this show is so stupid that it's actually fun to watch. The battle scenes are nice to look at, the girls (especially Himawari) are cute to look at and there are some unintentionally funny moments (the massacre in episode 2 due to Aoi tomato guilt) that kept me interested. The animation and transformations are also amazing to look at.

4.5/10 for me.

Yet another work by the very "special" Yoshino Hiroyuki...

This is like.... Evangelion, Madoka, Strike Witches into one... Except it fail to capture a fraction of what makes the 3 popular.

I would've given this a 2... but I'll give it a 3/10 for it's visual and it's so corny and bad it's hilarious script.


By far, Yoshino Hiroyuki's worst work yet(Haven't seen Qwaser). Here's anticipating his new found low in the coming years.

Hahaha, I laughed this entire episode!

Anyway, here's some random thoughts of mine about this series.

Like Rei's pet bird Piisuke, a budgerigar.

Is a popular pet in japan, next to dogs and cats.

Now that I noticed it, I remember some good old days of tokusatsu genre where they also had a bird exactly like this...oh, yes! I remember!
Vivid palette suit is very much looks like The Uchuu Keiji Gavan's suit!


Oh! Anyone notice Vividred attack named Vivid Punch? Not Naked punch? Lol.

Finally, Akane and Kuroki docked! I've been waiting for this since episode one. I can't overstate this enough, the use of the OP/ED's full song at the end is always a fantastic move, they tie in really well, there is a reason why theme songs exists. I love happy endings, even if they are as sappy as this one was 5/5.

As for the series...I should give it a 4 because to be honest, the writing was a new low, not even Guilty Crown, Accel World/SAO achieved such a level . Well, at least this show didn't take itself seriously, enjoyable guilty pleasure if you can turn off your brain. 6/10.

Well deserved 4/10.
This was my second favourite series after Haganai. So much fun. Vividly fun.

I played the Vividred Transformation Scene about 5 times with girlish tears running down my face.
That was the best moment in the anime.

This anime went full retard just like Strike Witches at the last 2 episodes though.
Why didn't that crow just eat Rei will all her arrow HUH!?

...At least Gramps got his body back and the mom is out of the hospital.

I'll be following the manga now. For more

So, I guess no one is going to explain to us how Rei got back to this world, right?
Last Episode was rather good, the series overall was mediocre and doesn't really convince me of Anime originals.

Rei deserves the death sentence for all the people she killed.

Overall 2/10 I wouldn't mind another anime with ass fanservice though.

Couldn't you just try to figure it out on your own?
Can't?
Spoonfeeding
Simple hypothesis:
The ∞ alone has the power to cross dimensions (as evident by it contacting Dr.Isshiki in the past, restoring Rei's world, and creating the door)
Rei being a being that acts as a lighthouse to the alones and still having the key... Yeah, so asking the alone to send her back there wouldn't be impossible.

PS: I thought of this in about 10 seconds after reading your post.

Looks like the "Friendship beats all!" theme doesn't fit well with this sort-of serious sci-fi setting.
Or maybe they just tried to make us laugh by using too much pseudo sci-fi explanatory statements...

All in all the series is not the best among all, but definitely fullfilled audience's requiments for this kind of anime.
Certain amount of Moe(cuteness) and Moe(intence action) can overcome plot silliness and predictability, that says, I'm happy with the last Docking(Vividred!) and looking forward to the 2nd season.
