Episode 2

When the episode started I thought they would go back and then show whatever happened to reach the point of the first episode or something. Even though the first episode wasn't really exciting in any way, it still would have been quite good. But then I found out that there was literally no point in showing Amane and Saya looking for the dorms on their first day of school. They might as well have shown some naked girls in that time because obviously that's what they like doing here.

They should really tell what the relationship between the low ranked main characters and their higher ranked respective senpais is. Why is Almaria only talking with Sofia and not with others? Why is Stella only with Carene and not anyone else? And why are those higher ranked senpais acting like they're good friends? They should really show how each pair met up and how they got in this relationship of friendship or something because all this really feels off to me.

The whole episode was so so until the last moment when it was discovered that the dildos were a distraction and the tentacles were the real enemy and attacked while the main force was out. And then the tentacles attacked the alpha drivers which shows that these things have some intelligence and are working with a plan and not just mindlessly killing the girls in their way. It sure added some tension but the rest of the episode was so meh that this final part couldn't make up for it. One more episode to see whether it can make it through. The crystallized Amane is making me give this another episode.

Well, this is kind of looking like Highschool Fleet, I thought we were getting a show of super powered girls fighting these alien invaders, overcoming their personal issues, deepening their friendship and awakening to their true potential...but instead, we get a twist like this.

So now, one of two things may happen:
- The Progress girls now have to fight without the boost provided by their Alpha Drivers and will continue fighting until they find a way to free them.

or

- Amane is freed from the crystal prison by the power of friendship, and for the time being, becomes the only Alpha Driver capable to aiding in battle.

Place your bets

I did say she has a lot of growing up to do, right?

No they don't need to tell you that. It's obvious just by looking. The low ranked girls talk with their senpai from the same planets they come from. You can tell they come from the same planets because they have similar powers. For example, the angel-looking main character talks with an angel-looking senpai.

If you were in a school that gathers people from different planets, you would naturally gravitate to and talk more with the people coming from your own planet. They don't have to explain that.

Well, crap I hope the Neuroi get this smart in Brave Witches. It'd make things more interesting.

Is this a short series? Seriously, is this like six episodes only? Because this is some climax level stuff. Either Amane's harem learns to fight on their own, or figure out a way to get her out ASAP.

I think they'll learn to fight alone. Specially Saya, since she was blaming her driver a bit too much for her fuck ups. Now she's gotta step up and do things on her own.

It's time to prove there's a reason she's getting billed first in the cast list. lol

I thought she was supposed to learn about teamwork, though.

Also, Saya looks so much cuter with glasses, and they're not even my thing.

Saya was supposed to learn to appreciate her driver more and stop being so selfish. But to do that, she's gotta fight alone for a while.

This is the perfect setup for her character growth, because now her motivation will have to change, from "being special" to "saving the baka driver".

I'll have to agree with that

She was starting to learn that when she discovered that Amane was training really hard.
But then her words backfired when Amane's link to her wasn't working at all.

That seems to be the case.

True, it's pretty obvious she needed a change in her driving force, but she'll also have to learn about teamwork, since she's technically not fighting alone. Hell, they all need to learn, Amane was the one who singlehandedly kept them together.

And poor Amane and the others are just going to stay trapped for who knows how long? They could be killed! Who knows what's going to happen to them?

If you ask me, Saya needs to learn that she has one of the most amazing powers in the freaking world and start using it properly. Also to stop being a charge-ahead self-absorbed Leroy-Jenkins girl. But maybe if she realized that her issue is less "I need to get stronger/more powerful" and more "I need to make better use of the power I have" she could make progress on all fronts.

...Or maybe not.

Well, I mean alone as in fighting without a Driver, not alone alone.

I'd say she will make progress now as the fight becomes a lot more personal with Amane's life at stake. She'll get her shit together.

I know, but it looks like this is a team effort out in the field as well, so she'll probably have to learn both.

I recently decided to check this series out.

Character designs look good, basic series premise sounds promising.

The very first scene of Episode 1 made me think of Strike Witches, but with the Witches replaced by various flashily-attired superpowered girls that are all like mid-to-high level comic book superheroes. That first action scene in Episode 1 was extremely cool, and appealed a lot to me, with one exception - the enemies seemed rather underwhelming.

And after that opening scene, Episode 1 quickly descended into "Angst and Casual Nudity: The Anime!" I initially didn't connect to Saya that much - To me, she's like a successful pro baseball player that's heavily angsting that he's not an all-star baseball player. It's generally good to aim for the top, but Saya, you're already special compared to your average human being.

So I ended up kinda disappointed with Episode 1, but then I decided to give it another chance with Episode 2... and Episode 2 was excellent. Mainly because the enemies jumped drastically in quality here, and came off as serious threats that wouldn't be easily overpowered/outsmarted. Also because Episode 2's final scenes showed some truly bold developments.


So after the first two episodes, I like this show! It's a fun show with a lot of good elements to it. I like how there's five distinct types of superpowered girls, each with their own distinct specializations and fighting styles (ex: science-world tends to put a lot of emphasis on speed, we Earthlings seem to really love swords and sword-fighting, etc...)

What's probably a good nutshell description for this show:

Symphogear meets Magic: The Gathering

What's up with the recent rise of "Ranking Wars"...

Between this and Qualidea Code... the main characters in both are all stuck up about "I will be the strongest, I am the only one, I am the chosen, Ranking means Everything"...

Feels too dramatic and self conscious..., not sure if I want to keep on watching or not...
(plus the "peer pressure" pretty much screwed the other girl over...)

IE: when the main characters talks about Ranking, I have this huge urge to punch them in the face.

(which when I think about it... these 2 stuck up main characters in different anime are a match made for each other, LOL, too bad the merged worlds doesn't include Qualidea Code's world)

Pretty much


For those not familiar with the several words in Ange Vierge, I'll summarize what comes from each world.

Blue World (Earth): Humans...pretty obvious.

Black World (Darkness Embrace): Demons, Witches, Vampires, Elves, Demi-Humans...basically anything dark/evil. Also has Orcs, but they are a jolly bunch that only care about comparing strength

Red World (Terra Rubiri Aurora): God(desses), Angels, Fairies, Saints and anything cosidered holy/sacred/pure.

White World (System White Eguma): Androids, Scientists, Programs and Viruses.

Green World (Grunewald Silt): Military and Espers...or maybe the ESP part is their Exceeds?

Out of the five worlds, green is the strangest imo...possibly because it was later added in the TGC.

The mobage's story is also different from the anime. Maybe they wanted to keep everyone in the dark and at the edge of their seats

I like how all those planets have long chuuni names, and then you Earth.

Wait, it should somewhat corresponds to the elements/factions from Magic: The Gathering.

Anyways, so it seems that there's only one Alpha Driver left on Seiran Island.

It's Magic: The Gathering with a twist

Human world (Blue), a fantasy world based on medieval europe (Black), a world based on the age of myths (Red), a sci-fi world (White) and a world mostly covered in forests (Green).

...will that do?


As a plus, some info on Dr. Michael. She's a genius scientist who built all the android Progress with "Code Omega" in their name. The higher their number, the younger they are, so that makes Stella the youngest.

I have to say, is this going to be one of the most naturist anime series around? The first episode had everyone butt naked half the episode and episode 2 wasn't that much better. I couldn't help but wonder if anime can get more nudist than this. Not that I'm complaining; I just feel sorry for our heroine who must be working herself to the bone using her light powers to make all those censor glares. Someone give the poor girl a chance to rest. That said, it would be kind of funny to have them actually keep the glare in the BDs until some point near or at the end when suddenly everyone's exposed as Saya sighs and mutters "I'm taking a break". I don't know about anyone else but I think that'd be awesome.
