I don't even know why, but I enjoyed it a LOT.
This is very strange because the story couldn't have been more predictable, cliché and simple.
Still, what can I say? Does all of that REALLY matter when I can just say, I enjoyed every minute of it?
I don't think so. I just have to rate it 8/10, every other rating would just try to adapt it to a "realistic" rating, that I personally don't feel like it's right.
It's my opinion after all! :-)

it was awesome to see all transformations again. and even the one with rei. i loved it tbh :D it was a really nice last episode.

6/10 for the whole show. it was nothing special, but it was surprisingly enjoyable to watch.

Take away the stunning fighting visuals and you've got a whole bunch of bullshit, somewhat mixed together into a show. And ass-shots but no complaints on that one. If only some of the money used would have gone into the production of Magi... 5/10

And for those who really think that Rei's gone- take a look at the last scene following the credits. Obvious outcome (so was the ReixAkane docking).

Lol...I thought they'll gonna use a Vivid shot or something since Rei's specialty is archery.

How did they even dock. Aren't you supposed to be one of them to be able to dock/do whatever. And wow, it's not like I've seen a villiain who wants to surpass the universe/become a god-like figure about a million times! Nice one, A-1, you got me there.

Also, who are 'they'? They never explained it. And that infinity symbol randomly appeared and asked if Rei wanted her world back. =.=?? What?

4/10 The art was good, the story had potential but didn't even try living up to it, the music wasn't really noticeable (although the OP is annoyingly catchy) and I got bored.

Remember, everyone, you can surpass any obstacle through the power of friendship.

I couldn't help thinking of Evangelion 2.22 when I saw Akane diving into the interior "core(?)" to pull back Rei who was devoured and trapped inside.
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.

Overall the series was so-so I'll give it a 6/10 Not a bad show but nothing great, then again I watched it for the Ass more than the Friendship is magic << >> What? Least I'm honest.

Solid show with zero pretense. It knew exactly what it was and did it quite well. Really enjoyed it. I would call it one of the best bad shows I know. It aims low, but because of that it hits the mark every time.

Garbage ending to a garbage show.

Can't believe I was ever hyped for this. The fanservice, the only slightly redeeming factor, wasn't even that great. At least Strike Witches had some older characters thrown into the mix to satisfy all tastes and make it slightly less creepy.

Overall 2/10

Nothing much to say about this series. Expected the vividred operation.

The story was meh with little development and lots if not almost every single episode beside the introduction of the main characters felt like filler.

Vividred operation was beautiful and that punch from space was actually pretty good.

Overall some good scene and the OP is still awesome being played at the end but nothing that leaves a impact, so 6/10

This was nice from the fan service point of view finally something that isn't about breasts all the time instead something for us ass lovers which is way better.
Fan service aside this actually reasonable overall this anime season didn't have any outstanding anime in it it was so mediocre that even this anime was talked about a lot.
Which is unusual for a anime from the echi genre personally i think it would have been better without the transformation scenes but they where something to expect from a anime like this.

A bit reminded me of Zetsuen no Tempest. Who was that girl in the end? Rei?

That flying scooter will be vividly retained in my memory though not sure about the anime. I want one.

Well, nothing special about the ending but I liked it.
Nice visuals, likeable characters, nice yuri moments, that's what I expected from this series and that's what I got, I'm satisfied overall.

This show is not meant to be taken seriously, really.
If you do so, it gets quite enjoyable.

This most definitely, one of the reasons Vividred was so enjoyable is because it doesn't take itself seriously, I'm positive it would've been absolute crap if it went full DARK and got shat on by people who loved Madoka. It was one of the better and most solid shows IMO from the recent lackluster anime lineup, I watched it for the characters, fanservice and power of friendship, and that's what it gave me.

7/10 for me right now.

It did some things right and it missed the mark on other things.

It's not a classic by any stretch but it never got too dark, which probably would have been a bad idea, considering the narrative was never this show's strong point.

I like how 5 minutes into the show and everyone's still just standing around, watching the enemy tear sh!t up. Ok- the jets are just 1 or 2 men each- we can write those off, right? How about those carriers? A few hundred men each? No problem! None of those poor saps are our friends! Now lets go get Rei!

I mean seriously?

Ah well- not bad, even if illogical with an over-hyped ending.
If you aren't watching Zetsuen no Tempest (Civilization Blaster), you should be. Brilliant writing with legit plot twists.

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.

Weren't they over the sea? surely they fell into it, and the pallet suit protected them from the impact of hitting the water or something.

Wow, that was an awesome final episode. What started out as being one of my least favorites of the season became my favorite. 10/10 for the episode and 9/10 for the entire show.

It turned too much around Akane for my taste, it would be cool if the other girls could combine her powers with each other. It had some nice moments, I really liked Wakaba and Himawari, but 6/10 here.

Well, at least it was nice to look at.

And that's actually the only good thing I can say about it now. I picked this up as a stupid but fun fanservice show. When it began violating it's own rules (girls docking when they barely knew each other, etc) the fun ceased and I only kept watching for the fanservice. And since episode 10 the plot and the characters became so unbearable that I was just suffering and being pissed during the last two. The final episode was a particularly strange experience, because I watched all that action and drama without feeling any suspense. Why should I care what happens next when the writers aren't bound to basic logic anyway?

It's really sad how this turned out. The design and animation were awesome and I even enjoyed the whole cheesy and naive nature about it. If only the show was at least consistent in itself and if only it didn't expect me to like characters that were truly despicable at that point, this would've been such a fun ride.

The anime wasn't special in any way the only thing that ever caught my eye were the well done visual effects, overall I could never grasp the whole 'closeness' of their friendship because it felt a little to forced imo. Also had a terrible script writer and wasn't that enjoyable.

PS: The only friendship I could see some actual real development was between Rei and Akane.

Dat Falcon Punch.

The ending was pretty bland and clich'e with the departing and friendship speech.

There's also some unexplained thing. I wonder if there will be a season 2.

THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP/10

A very nice episode to end a mahou shoujo type anime filled with Hot pants, battles, incredible amounts of cliche moments, YURI, a gratuitous amounts of ass shots, and last but certainly not least....friendship!

I enjoyed it very much.

no seriously though....7/10

Not to mention you have retards on this site who are convinced that 7 is an average rating.
