I ment to make this thread before it started airing, but I never got around to it.


Anyways, I’m 5 episodes through and really enjoying this one, though I am kind of saddened that AoA licensed it rather than someone else.

Me too. I’m thinking that “Awww, AoA got it … rats!” threads are going to become common.

Ep. 07

And the enjoyment continues, though I had to laugh at the obligatory swimsuit/beach ep. last episode.

Man do I ever feel sorry for Rei though.
Not only is she stuck in a no-win situation between her wish, her job and her “friends”, she’s constantly being thwarted at every turn by her “friends”.

Seeing this thread where y’all are praising the series after reading ANN’s The Stream column where it was excoriated is jarring. I’m still rather ambivalent about the series. I was going to wait and see if it would get a dub before I watched, but AoA means that even if it were to get a dub it’d be an eternity before I’d have an option to legally view it. That, and for this sort of show I don’t think that AoA can procure a dub that I will find more enjoyable than the sub.

Brutal.

O

See here’s the rub, what if Rei succeeds and destroys the Generator, basically ensuring the Alone’s future, instead of saving everyone and getting her parents back? That’s too easy though, somehow I have the feeling before the end Akane and Rei are going to “Dock” to save the “real” future.

Yeah, I was thinking that too.

I was also thinking…

[details=spoiler]Though it would make it end on a rather dark note, Rei runs out of feathers (either purposefully giving up or trying until the very end) and because she failed, not only does her wish not come true, but she also dies.

That would make for a rather sad ending, especially if they drag it out a bit and she gets a chance to tell Akane about everything and say how much she enjoyed being her “friend”.[/details]

Ep. 09

A fun little frivolous episode.

Himawari & Wakaba share a friendship moment.
It was a rather sweet episode, but I really think they should have had their bonding moment much earlier.
We’ve only got a few episodes left, and Rei is dangerously close to not having any feathers left.

Can they really finish this up in the next few episodes?

Ep. 10

Wow is Rei like the biggest Hypocrite or what?


#11

Ep. 11

spoiler

The girls break Rei out of her confinement. The girls and Dr. Ishikki pass the test, but the Raven Cheats and has a snack. (Like I called it while ago, meaning they had no plans to restore Rei’s World in the 1st place) Now the Raven powered by the rest of Rei’s Arrows, goes to destroy the Manifestation Engine. The title of the next Episode is “Vividred OperationJust a note that Rei’s Key is still out there, so I bet they use it to bring her back.

Ep. 11

[details=spoiler]Wow!

So we find out Rei would have never got her wish anyways, but on top of that, the crow eats Rei an becomes an Alone using Rei’s last feathers.

They sure know how to make us tune into the last episode![/details]

Wow. Aniplex is taking the worst ideas from Sentai Filmworks and Bandai, blending them together, and then putting a pinch of their own special brand of brutality on it.
