^This sounds like it would be a mind-blowing yuri foursome.

We'll have to see... I could understand if they limited it. It would make sense that not everyone could get close enough for that sort of thing. And just because Akane can make friends easily doesn't mean the others would be at ease with her. Remember that Aoi was the limiting factor here, despite their closeness. I suspect she would have trouble merging with Wakaba and Himawari. Those two will probably be better suited to each other. The end may require a four-way merge, however.

I'm also expecting an Akane-Rei docking at some point. It's totally a necessity.

Furthermore, the fusion is a rather intimate process (their memories flow into each other) so I would think they would be reluctant to fuse with somebody they don't know perfectly. Now that I think about it, the fusion is probably more intimate than sex, which just makes this show all the more yuri-ish.

So basically:

Akane x Aoi = Vivid red and Vivid blue, depending on who's "on top"
Yellow and green = Vivid yellow and Vivid green

Black might be thrown in the mix at some point.
This would be the best outcome which I would like to bank on. Beyond the more meaningful yuri implications, such a setup would also imply a more divergent/story-based focus than simply "every new episode = one more transformation/combination". A reduced focus on just establishing some new combination every episode will also give more leeway for old combinations to show up again; I can definitely say I want to see Vividblue again because she is just freakin' gorgeous.

On the other hand, if they are really focused on the whole "Akane = main char." and "merchandise a whole ton of different combinations" thing I can still see the possibility that Akane will have to be the one to dock with everybody. This would be a disappointment, but I guess I would not still dismiss the show out of hand. Depending on how much actual substance they could push into the story in such a scenario, though, it might dampen my enthusiasm considerably (I consider episodes 1 and 2 mostly very well written/directed so far).

Assuming our ideal scenario, though, it could still take quite a bit of development before Wakaba and Himawari ever show up in combination form. While we can assume they might know each other due to being at new school already, hoping for a "close relationship" would be a pretty damned huge assumption. In this case, I'm thinking for the next episode there is no necessity to see Vividgreen. Instead, Aoi and Akane could buy time for Wakaba and Himawari's development by giving us their other combination, Vividred, instead.

I'm just viewing this as more of a Sentai series, so my bias towards new "merchandise" (and it not necessarily impacting character development) might be playing a role, though I'm aware it's not completely that. I'm also basing it on the series logo having all four colors together, so everybody should be on equal footing with each other.

Let's examine the "docking" in more detail.
Basically, two possibilities:

1) Red/Blue and Green/Yellow only. Result depends on who's on top.

2) Red (Akane) as the MC docks with all the girls
This wouldn't cheapen anything imo. She could kiss every girl in a different spot

Anyway, fanservice-wise, this is all still very tame, especially if it's compared to Strike Witches.
If it had been me, i'd said: "Activate fusion by grabbing the other girl's breats from behind!" XD

Finally, here's something that no one has mentioned so far: What if they eventually do a super-fusion with three or even four girls?
This could only work with option 2) from above. Akane could then kiss the three other girls, one after another, and then - Yuri orgy!

Just like Midonin said, I think it will be a group with central at Akane, thus everyone will docking with her, giving "gotta dock them all" feeling that missing from this series that has combine so many element from other genre...

I am not a super sentai fan except kamen rider, and if you think this series as a kamen rider, you'll understand...
VividRed (basic) -> combine with blue -> VividBlue (Strength) [Which is wierd I must say :P ]
VividRed (basic) -> combine with yellow -> VividYellow etc.

So, yeah...
For me, I speculate Akane will befriend them all but solving each girl most intimate problem...
For example, loneliness for Aoi...
After that: Docking Operation!!!

EDIT:

For me, it is unquestionable that they will combine as a final from (maybe ULTIMATE VividRed Operation!!!) because of the mecha theme and its love of docking/gattai... :P

I'm thinking that since they showed "Vivid Blue Operation" first insted of "Vivid Red Operation" (Title) in ep.2, Vivid Red's form might be something that will only appear near the end.

As I just said - perhaps "Vivid Red" will be the super fusion where Akane kisses all three girls

For my part, I'd place my bets on Vivid Red requiring the involvement of Rei for sure. I base this mostly on the way the characters are presented in the promos and in the OP -- I think there will be some serious "befriending" going on in this show. Whether it's just Akane and Rei, or whether it's all five... who knows, but I'd say that the narrative will revolve around Akane and Rei's developing friendship (precisely because she's apparently starting as something of an enemy).

I suspect this will follow the route of them meeting each other in school and Akane making friends with Rei in the normal sense and then discovering that she's the enemy. There may then be some Nanoha-style befriending, but I agree with relentlessflame that the two are going to end up working together at the end. A docking with Rei involved somehow is practically a necessity.

I have no idea why I even thought of this...
That's not a bad idea Aoi has a hammer, Akane has a boomer, and Green ponytail with a sword, sure would be nice to have some sort of special user based on her weapon.

So basically:

This is what I thought at first, Akane fusing with another girl would mean Aoi-chan got NTR'ed okay seriously speaking though, Akane and Aoi had their friendship based on a tomato, and it was long in the making. So transferring to a new school and Akane fusing with another girl would make it seem like there's not enough episodes more than anything. Of course, I'm not saying it's not possible, but I'm counting on Vivid yellow already being in the same school as Green Ponytail, so green + yellow seems like a more likely combo than Red + green so early in the series. But like what Sol Falling was saying, we don't exactly have to see Vivid Green next ep, so I'd rather the series have the characters gel together before their big reveals.

But I was thinking of something else. What is the main catalyst for Vivid Blue operation? I thought that perhaps opposites attract in this series, Akane the energetic girl out there everyday, Aoi-chan the recovering oujosama. This is why I thought Vivid Green + Vivid yellow makes a great pair because Green = physical strength, Yellow = mental power. Basically brains and brawn. So the conclusion I came up to was Aoi + Akane = friendship on a spiritual level, Green + Yellow = friendship on a phyisical level, meaning both make up for each other's lesser field of expertise. Ah, this speculating is so fun

That's going to be one hell of an animation sequence but seriously speaking, that poor Engine might have an overload

I do want to note that the idea of Akane/Aoi and Wakaba/Himawari being the main/initial pairings doesn't necessarily cross out the possibility of other fusions. Such a setup would simply give more time for deeper relationships to develop. I.e., you don't end up having Akane rush into school, somehow meet Wakaba, giving her a key, and also somehow combining in the same episode. And also doing it all over again for Himawari. A slower pace of development just seems much more likely to me of generating a good story.

The other advantage of letting any of the girls combine with each other is that it produces more interesting combinations for the battle scenes. Rather than just having only a single combined Vivid on screen at once, you can initially start out with one possibility from each of the Red/Blue and Yellow/Green combinations, and then as the girls really get friendly with each other allowing the pairings to switch over.

There's also of course the inescapable consideration of possible combinations with Rei. So yeah, my principle concern about who and which girls combine with each other has to do with story variety and pacing.

If course yellow has boobs, all she does is sitting in front of the computers, all day and all night long.
Akane and Momo lack meaningful boobs because they are impoverished and must take tiresome menial works.

Indeed, can't wait for Himawari's transformation sequence, I bet it will be full of physics (the bouncy kind, if you know what I mean).

I loved episode 2, the idea of the fusion I really like and especially how they should do but unfortunately this is not a kiss on the lips ...

and frankly I laugh at the end of the episode to their school

Nah, my guess will be that all four can combine into one over9000 powered up Magical Girl by kissing Akane's forehead and cheeks. And she will be so powerful, that every strong being in the universe will be like this:
