Bah, thanks for Guppy for making me not worth waste my time on the last episode. Really, the only hook I had on this series was educational purposes on who'll end up with whom, as I have a running list of the win/loss rate of Osana-Najimi to update with this years shows.

In all honesty, this show was utter garbage IMO. Only saving grace was Midorino was cute as hell, and Shirokawa's antics were beyond amusing. But the mecha fights? The plot? Character development? Pacing? Ugh... don't let me get started.

Overall series grade: D-

well as a show not so great. The only reason I didnt skip this show was for shiori I suppose. She is such a lovely charackter and unique voice, poor thing didnt get Junki :/

Man, what a shitty ending.
Spoiler:
What a gigantic waste of time. This is probably one of the worst endings i have ever watched. Not that the show itself was that much better. God, i'm so pissed right now.

Hmm... I just finished watching this series today and it wasn't so bad, but I will admit I was pretty bored. This show felt kind of lame? Cheesy? Corny? I don't can't really explain it, but it felt like I was watching Ultraman sometimes.

I can tell you, you didn't miss much. No, I'm really serious about that. Nothing of real importance happened in the last half of the show. As long as you know about Gadeon (forgot which episode he appeared in), you can skip to the last episode and you'll understand maybe 99% of what's going on.

Must they make a series with the name Raideen/Reideen every X (put the number you want to at the place of X) years? Hmm, it's a good question. I guess it could be the reason for this REIDEEN has ben done.

I think the series was good in overall. I liked how it turned out in the end, could have been a bit better but it was allright.

I also got the OST, its a really nice set of music.
I was wondering though about one song in the anime. I heared it only 2 times i think but i couldnt find it on the OST.
The 2nd time you could hear it in EP 21, where Shiori sees Junki with Midorino after they watched they movie and she starts talking about them to her classmate. Some kinda of piano type music. I really loved that one.
Anyone know where i could find out what song that is?

With all that Akira love in the OP, was anything else expected?

It's even in the Reideen descendant that ADV released.
Spoiler:
Of course, I'm an Akira fan.

Edit: I still think that Akira should have had more screen time and an on screen kiss.

WOW SUPER DUPER LATE......but here we go..

DAMN that show was pretty, love Takuya Saito's designs for it!

What kept me going was really the sweet production values of the show and the vigalance corps' Terrific Trio, those guys were always fun to watch. Maedasaki, Terasaki and Hoshikawa can't choose a favorite. In fact, they should have their own show! (On the part of Maedasaki, that was my favorite role I heard Shinichiro Miki play).

Other than that the story was TOTALLY 70s in terms of sophistication (ie slim to nil), without the meat that you get from a modern show in the plot development department. Not to mention that what development was there was rough at best. Characters were at best flat/uninteresting/underused (most of the cast cept the Terrific Trio) or at worst mere plot devices (Ando, the Aliens in particular). The OP got my hopes up for some really killer romance angle with Akira, but all for naught.

Overall C-, even with the friggin awesome visuals and music (some of the best i have seen for tv, im gonna give IG that) other than that yea pretty much what everyone else said.

Still

Spoiler for Reideen plot in last ep:

I was hoping for more Akira romance in this title too but alas the relationship was chaste until the end leaving our imaginations to fill in the details of what happened before the last scene of the epilogue.

Maybe someday we'll see an OVA.
