Green has the whole super-serious "warrior of justice" tomboy thing going on.

Yellow is this amazing blend of nerd girl with lovely, bountiful 'rich girl' appearance.

Blue was the relatively shy and soft-spoken refined yuri girl with a big crush on the female lead... but Rei has kind of supplanted her to a degree. It's hard for Blue to stand out given what the main cast is like now. Still, I think she's a likeable character.

Exactly. You're worried about that but have you thought about how all these girls are flying around so easily with pretty much just rockets on their feet? It's crazy but... fun if you don't think too much on the details. Just think that it's a special bomb that is so advanced and modified by the genius grandpa to have only an effect to a certain radius.
One of the most famous fictional characters of all time is a guy who's a normal humanoid under a red son but who is nothing less than an immensely powerful god under a yellow sun. Sunrays... can't do that much. But hey, millions upon millions of people clearly roll with it.

If I can roll with that as a comic book fan, I can roll with VRO.

Holy crap! I was going to watch it because of the futuristic theme, but in the first 3-5 seconds we get some inappropriate fanservice shot, totally not needed. then like 5 more seconds later we get a close up of some underage girls ass and pussy imprint on her daisy dukes?!?!?! that girl didn't look older than 11 either! WTF Japan. There is another anime that has this same premise that was aired like three years ago and was amazing. I thought it was going to be like that, so I had high hopes, I was shocked to see a pedobear approved show shoved down my throat in the first 15 damn seconds of that show. . .I can't believe you guys got through that. . . .I think I'm going to have to re-evaluate the anime community, the people in it, and my place in it, because this shit was just plain out offensive.

I believe I've implied in this thread somewhere that the best part about this show is to set it as a target for collective tsukkomi.

I thought the episode had a good atmospheric balance throughout, between the girls coping with Akane being out of commission and then working together to plant the bomb inside the Alone. Their friendship reminds me of the Sailor Senshi and how everyone else that was Tsukino Usagi was close to their Princess. Akane/Usagi are the glue that holds the Vivid Team/Senshi together, and they are what inspire the others to press on in spite of the situation they're in.

While I'm starting to wonder when HomuRei is ever going to find out the opposition she's fighting is standing right in front of her, my reason for that is she's too focused on ramping up the Alones' power to put two and two together and go WTF at the realization.

Her talk with Aoi left me feeling uneasy. I can see Akane forgiving her for causing them so much trouble, but supporting Rei on her campaign to destroy the current world to bring back the parallel world? "Do your best", indeed; Rei's going to need a friggin' miracle for that to happen.

Oh, and let's compound that with the Dreaded Crow-Kun putting her through another round of the You Failed Again, Suffer For Your Incompetence torture session. That's what I believe caused Rei to have that breakdown. (I can also imagine her breaking character for a few minutes screaming a litany of curses taken directly from Telltale's The Walking Dead.)

Rei needs to desperately re-evaluate her life. She's still under the belief that the crow has all the answers for her, but if she was really that benevolent, why is she torturing Rei whenever she fails? Furthermore, what happens fi she shoots all her arrows, yet still doesn't accomplish what she set out to do? Also, what does the crow want from all this?

Still a lot of unanswered questions.

I like how they handled the 'cannot dock' thing. It forced the girls to be more creative and really test their friendship. Of course, it was mighty convenient how Akane used some sort of spiritual energy to give Aoi that much-needed boost, but I'll let that slide. Taking this show too seriously is kinda pointless to begin with.

Episode 08

Oh, the return of the Futaba tilt-rotors I'm wondering though why there's no plan B if the girls are unable to fight. That's the best they have? A bomb that can obliterate a large area? You think by now there'd be a top secret weapons program designed to protect Blue Island after all these interdiction's

Ah maybe there's budget cuts. Harsh times even in that world they placed all their hopes on a stuffed animal and his grand-daughter, they're humans too! They need rest! Nutrients! Free year's supply of Mayo

Ahem.... oh well, at least the 3 girls fought together, I tell you I was breathless during that great action scene, ain't such a good idea to hold my breath but seriously, it was a great plan. Except for the part where I wonder why they didn't attach the bomb to Aoi-chan's hammer to begin with. Wouldn't it have been easier for her to hammer that thing in at first like she eventually did? I loved it anyways, Wakaba and HimaHima getting closer and closer, and the thing where the boomerang became extra thrusts and wings was unexpected

Still very much NOT liking the Rei-chan torture. As her first friend, I demand that silly crow leave her Alone! You know, what with all that red eye powers of that crow, why doesn't that silly bird just glare at the engine all day, that ought to overload it

And as Rei-chan's first friend, I want to post more pictures of her

Wait a minute.... while I have a lot to ask you about your words,......no offense, but to you, do they really look younger than 11 yrs old?

It does give off that impression, now that you mention it.

Now on several pressing issues.

SGE Bombs? What are these things? Why are they so feared that only 109 were made (for the UDF), and they were horrified to even suggest using them? Are these the new nukes/N2 bombs of the era? I would like to see more hardware in action.

Also the usage of SAoE is kinda iffy at this point, even I want an all-out attack instead of just trickling down the Alones at this point.

Why are we referring to them by their pallet suit colours (excluding those that are uniform)? Unless... your are referring to the fusions...

Then Akane and Wakaba is(are? fusion logic...) taking Akane and Himawari out?!

For one thing because each of them IS that color in hair, clothing, etc. For another, each of them actually has the color in their name. It is not, in fact, wrong to call Aoi "Blue" because "aoi" literally means "blue." Similarly, each girl has a word that means their color in their name.

Then we are calling them names based on appearence which to some extent (since it's not really offensive as of now) is name calling. Furthermore, names (with meanings) are not meant to be translated if not everybody would have hundreds (thousands?) of names due to all the languages in the world and you still would not be using the name that people introduced themselves with.

Don't get me wrong, I see nothing jarring about addressing them as such; I thought that the interrobang would show that I was not dead set on addressing them by their name but the fusions do officially have the colors in their names without any translation so I was joking about Akane taking herself out in a threesome.
