Vividblue is still the best transformation since she has laced lingerie under the armor.

So does Momo transform in the next episode?

This anime never fails to make me double over in laughter, and so effortlessly too. I'd imagine the writers were also in stitches as they reviewed the script in the production process. Who cares about the plot, the themes and feelings of the show that they tried to get across was conveyed well, and I felt warm and fuzzy watching every episode. Homerun.

Only sad thing is the art got really bad at times, particular episode 9 and 11. Thank goodness this final episode was mostly great. Really liked Vividred's designs, but was a little disappointed that a Vividblack didn't appear since it was fully possible.

Onto more serious matters, now that this show is over, I think its safe to declare anime as officially dead.

Well, this episode was completely predictable. Fortunately, it was completely predictable in exactly the sort of ways that I like, so I call it a win.

I'm pretty sure that at least some in the production crew wanted to explore the concept of cosmic horror/tragedy (ala Madoka Magica), but in the end their decision was "scratch this, we're making a light and happy anime with lots of ass shots".

Spoiler for eps12:

When was it anything else? The Vivid system is just a fancy mechanization of the Power of Friendship trope. Did you expect much else from the finale?

Err...wow.

It was pretty and stuff, but I didn't really like it.

I've complained about Pretty Cure and how each literation is and how I don't feel like committing to that many episodes, but after seeing Vividred, I can see why it has to be that many episodes.

So many combination possibilities, powersups, but since it had to do everything in 12 episodes, nothing happens.

Even the overall plot was thin and predictable as hell. Nameless crow entity, nameless alone entity, nameless unknown infinity sign entity...

I probably keep an episode or two to rewatch the transformation scenes, but that's it.

I'm pretty sure that was never the idea (see the pilot comment in the second episode).

I had to find the raw version, download it and watch almost the whole thing again because I couldn't forward but it was worth it for this gif (avatar and signature safe).

I salute the civilian of VividRed world.
The world is being invaded by a giant headless one eye crow who wants to destroy the world. And yet none of them are in panic mode.


And for me the best transformation is still VividBlue.

With all the transformation sequences displayed in a row, I noticed that Aoi was much more excited and eager to kiss Akane than Wakaba or Himawari were.

well this series was pretty bad...the story was lame just girls fighting a monster that appears in every episode, the characters were plain too just girls being friends, i want to label this series as just a fanservice anime but even that was plain considering its made by the same guys as strike witches.

I had high hopes for this after the 1st ep but it just dragged on with nothing interesting happening throughout the whole series, they should of just done strike witches s3 instead of this crap

and my final rant about the last ep, why were they just standing there watching the military trying to fight that monster by themselves for the 1st half of the ep.....really just plain stupid

3/10 for the whole series, this could of been a great anime but it seems they just made a simple anime by throwing in hyper girls/friendship/minimal plot/a tad of fanservice and mixing it together

You know, the only thing lacking with VividRed is a tsundere personality, then she'd be a true Grade-S ZR

You know what's disappointing... She didn't become a magical girl and perform docking to her sister. Heck, I didn't see Momo-chan fight!

Why Dr. Isshiki, why!?

Predictable ending is predictable. The crow was just a power-hungry entity, defeated by the power of friendship. I hoped to see Rei in a black Palette Suite, instead they just docked like that. Oh well, who cares about the plot?

This show was just a cheesecake without any pretense of being deep. It lost any scientific believability when Dr. Isshiki became a stuffed animal. I don't regret watching it but I will probably forget all about it in a couple of months

At least the girls were incredibly hot, especially their Vivid forms, so kudos to the designers on that aspect.

P.S. Yellow > Green > Blue > Red

There are many joke responses I could make, but seriously, it was a "push in the right direction". Their passing condition for the test was to overcome their distrust and become friends, which would be extremely difficult if the girls had no opportunity to meet each other except on the battlefield. So the all-knowing entity arranged for them to meet at school and give them a chance to see each other in a different light.

In this sense, Rei going to school is actually a huge plot point xD.
