I hate to be that guy, but this was really shitty and I have nothing but complaints. I'm gonna vent now, ignore me if you want.

No unambiguous romantic resolution for MireMamo. Of course at this point I wasn't really expecting it anymore, but still.
Momoka's character was such a waste. They could have done so much more with her than this flimsy psycho revenge seeker they went with.
Charlotte was also not used well in the end. She could have at least joined everyone in the final melee.
Kasumi and Hibiki got an instant resolution to their subplot, if you can call it that, and a shitty drive in like three seconds. Whoopdeefuckingdoo.
Akira still used her shitty robot in the end instead of driving with a human. Torino never drove with anyone ever. Pretty huge oversight for a show that's supposed to have fanservice as its number one priority.
We didn't get to see Mamori reacting to Akira being a woman after all. In fact, every single thing that happened between these two characters led to absolutely fucking nothing. The crush, the instant drive at first sight, what the hell was all of that for? Just to annoy the viewer and waste time? Great job then.
MireMamo's final form look really stupid and out of place. They're a fucking magical girl all of a sudden, in fact it really felt like they were trying to pull a Madoka with the look and the "we're gonna go save girls like us all over the world" thing. Terrible design choice, Mirei's regular look with some armor on top or something would have been much better looking and more fitting.

I'd give the show overall a very generous 6/10, just because it did give us some really hot scenes. It failed hard on every other aspect as far as I care.

You're hardly the only one with that opinion.
I am glad it exists though, because now we can have fan works with these characters. Some of which will undoubtedly be vastly superior to the actual anime.

You're not the only sane man here.
>>
>>1946003
6/10 is my final rating too. It gets points for being an original anime and not an LN adaption and some points for some of the characters, but in the end the writing was shit and the fanservice was lacking and unsatisfactory. Too many wasted and missed opportunities. I don't want a season 2 and I can't see myself ever rewatching this.

The Lady Lady short story is literally the highlight of the entire franchise.

You're forgetting about one other highlight: The Charlotte and her harem short story.

>No unambiguous romantic resolution for MireMamo. Of course at this point I wasn't really expecting it anymore, but still.

So combining into a new being because their synch rate was 100% doesn't counts?

The point of that arc was Mamori coming to terms with her lesbian tendencies. She latched into boy Akira because that is what she was taught it was expected of a girl while the instant driving (aside of being an humorous moment) was there to cement her as a lesbian in denial.
>>
I give it 8/10.
>>
I liked it. Though what happened with the main couple kinda reminds me of the BRS anime. Yomi and Mato were supposed to be the main pair but Yomi got more blatant hints with the crazy wheelchair girl. I can see Mireimamooth being more blatant or romantic in an eventual season 2 but that's up to sales. Also, wish it had a longer segment with Momoka's past and more Kasumi/Hibiki but seems like they were on schedule and many good ideas got rushed.
>>
>>1946025
>blatant hints
Yomi's mother treating them as already being married, and even saying as much, is slightly past hinting.
I get what you're saying though.
At least Yomi and Mato got a lot of blatant subtext in the OVA before that.
Mirei and Mamori only got promotional material. And that catchy ED song.

Madoka "invented" white and pink color scheme with long hair, white dress and pink wings. She also "invented" looking over the world from the outer space while wearing said dress and sprouting said wings and talking about CHIKARA and saving everyone.

Her hair is in pigtails and she wasn't shown to wear a long white dress with pink wings while looking over the Earth from the outer space. That last part can be omitted, her design is still only superficially similar to Madoka's (more pink than white, patches of red here and there).
Anyone else?

>Mirei and Mamori go around island to island removing what makes the girls "special"
So they basically either left it open for a S2 or destroyed their own franchise.
>>
>>1946100
There's nothing stopping them from showing what's going on on the other islands before Mirei/Mamori get there, but it seems like it would be sort of a waste of time.

The entire project is just really poorly handled in general though, I don't think anyone involved actually has a clue what they're doing. No clear audience, no clear vision, no proper merchandise exploitation.
>>
>>1946102
>a waste of time
>no clear vision
These. They just rendered whatever happens in the other islands meaningless. I don't see the point of playing Siren if the ending is "Mirei and Mamori erase the Armed virus, everyone goes home".

Also, what if a couple decides they're better off with the Armed virus and/or living on the islands?
>>

>These. They just rendered whatever happens in the other islands meaningless. I don't see the point of playing Siren if the ending is "Mirei and Mamori erase the Armed virus, everyone goes home".

You answered yourself

There's also the thing with the Organization to take care of.
>>
>Never saw Kasumi and Hibiki do anything
>or Torino and Mei
>or Akira and literally anyone
>didn't saw more Lady Lady
>didn't saw more Charlotte harem

Some wasted oportunities but I guess that's what 12 episodes series are. The ending felt kinda forced though, Mirei and Mamori deserved more time, also Momoka kinda dissapointed a little, she didn't even do anything but destroy a castle with her 'ultimate power'.

Hopefully there's a second season and they'll learn from their mistakes, I think is pretty clear already what does the fanbase wants so if there's a S2 then it would be hard to fuck up.

7/10
>>
>>1946110
>Mirei and Mamori will visit the other island at some vague point in the future and free everyone

Of all the things to whine about, this seems like the least relevant.

A lot can happen on the other islands. Maybe they even free themselves before ARM Jesus even get there.

Well I guess they could organize an army of... Oh. They really didn't think that through.
>>
>>1946116
>The organization that makes artificial weapons that don't need liberators and cannot be purified?

What is your point here? The artificial arms are actually the perfect enemies for MireMamo (and possibly the sisters and Siren's protagonists)
>>
>>1946116
>cannot be purified
But they WERE purified. Momoka, Not!Mirei and Pochaco didn't even try to fight when they were arrested.
>>
>>1946119
I think they meant Artificial Extars as in the completely artificial type like Sri and Catbot. I think the group producing those has two projects going on, one to create completely artificial Extars like Sri and Catbot and another to create Enhanced Soldiers like Momoka.

From the flashback Mirei has, it seems the final phase of their project is to merge those two into a final product where they're able to create Artificial Extars that are every bit as powerful as their Enhanced Soldiers. My guess is that their technology for Artificial Extars are still lacking something so they're developing Enhanced Soldiers to make up for it, but the goal is to phase out Enhanced Soldiers once technology advances enough.

I completely disagree with you. I liked the ending, and I liked the main pairing.

I'd like to see another season. It doesn't have to revolve around the same characters, but I think it would be cool if they made a cameo at the ending of season 2.

I also hope the game gets an english sub version, and a release in US, Canada, and/or Europe but given the ecchi nature of scenes and the drive requirements companies are probably hesitant to jump on board (if only someone on /u/ had a game company that was willing to do that).

Anyway, I'm up for more Valkyrie yuri, who else?

>>
>>1946110
>They just rendered whatever happens in the other islands meaningless
Not necessarily. The other islands still have their shielding up. The orginization lowered the one on Mermaid to fire. They aren't likely to do it at the other locations, so either the other locations would have to find a way to lower them, or the speed boat group will have to find a way to take them down from the outside. There is also the possibility of other unknown things happening on the other islands that could twist things in unforeseeable (to us) ways.
>>
>>1946095
>>1946091
It also gives me a kind of She-ra vibe. (Not that I've seen that show in a long time, and can recall anything with any sound recollection of what it really was or looked like).

I'm pretty sure Meguca MireMamo can destroy the barriers.

What makes you think that? They haven't displayed any indication of having a way to take it down. Their power is virus related. I doubt the shields are powered by virus.

Even in their Valkyrie Form, Mirei and Mamori would have lost to Momoka and her crew's giant robot form if it wasn't for Nimi. Momoka was actually even stronger when she was wielding Mamori.

All it really takes is have an Exter with a infection rating comparable to Mamori's that doesn't want the virus to disappear to become a credible source of conflict.

I don't know if I want more of this franchise after the fuck up that was Mermaid, Bikkhuni and Siren. They obviously have no idea of what they're doing, and seeing a concept like that crash and burn like it did is kind of painful. The worse in all of this is that the fans have better ideas than everything the staff could have done or did. Wasted potential everywhere.
>>
>>1946168
IMO just write off Valkyrie Drive and consider it a stepping stone to the next slightly gayer anime.
>>
You know, watching the finale for the second time actually made me appreciate it more. In first watch I gave it solid 6/10. Cool fight, fun episode, shit ending. In my second watch I caught some part that I missed before. Like they trying to justify Tokonome tentacling everyone. Mirei calling Akira, Hiiragi. Fusion A3-D5-E9 robot thing getting nice drawing from robot animators. I had even more fun watching it compared to first viewing. The ending is now 6.5/10.

VDM overall is solid 7/10 show. Flawed to hell and back but actually fun and entertaining enough not to be completely forgettable. I don't regret watching it but probably won't rewatch it more than 2 more times.

Just safely ignore the whiners.

The whole yuri fandom is overtaken by spoilt brats and SJWs, who doesn't know shit about yuri or anime for that matter. There were lots of trolls, who purposely twisted things for the last episode, and pretended there was something negating the main couple or yuri. Facts are, nothing of that sort happened. There was your typical nice amount of Mirei x Mamori goodness. The ending was a standard one that is on par with the usual endings for most normal anime. An euphemism for the common Japanese themes of "doing my best", "working hard" and "saving others". And all the yuri couples ended together. Watch for yourself and see.

It's fine to be upset at not getting a special ending befitting your tastes. But don't start telling lies because you are upset. And try to be self-aware that even hetero shows don't always get the ideal endings, and REMEMBER that Yuri is NICHE genre. You are lucky to be getting a show that is Yuri-centric, yet still want to make ridiculous and irrelevant complains. Also, remember the culture you are in. You want long drawn love confessions and things confirming lesbian identity, then you need to haul ass over to English lesbian entertainment. Yuri anime doesn't always work that way.

Overall, I'm satisfied. I was worried, they'd do a major bait and switch, and have the ending be a hetfag's paradise, but not one bit of that sort happened at all. I give my "yuri approved" stamp of 8/10.
>>
Anyone saw nips disliking the ending?

I saw some positive reaction but haven't found negative reaction. Overall the nips seems to take this finale better than Symphogear GX's finale.

They were tentacles in a girls mind.
Sometimes I really wonder where you people draw the line between het and yuri.

Is a strap-on het? If one of the girls is wearing a tuxedo is it het? I don't get it.

>Overall, I'm satisfied. I was worried, they'd do a major bait and switch, and have the ending be a hetfag's paradise, but not one bit of that sort happened at all.

This. I had the feeling pretty much every show I was invested in last (this) year turned out to be a big bait-and-switch, so I'm really happy VD ended completely yuri. Even if some relationships were left unclear, nobody ran off with a guy.

These two actually betrayed an organization powerful enough to quarantine countless girls on five artificial islands and install a laser satellite death cannon for a chance to get into Momoka's pants.

I'm in complete agreement with you there, it makes me so sad that whenever we finally get something more than the "will never amount to anything because it's just teasing to increase sales subtext" the show just sucks for one reason or other, first YKA now this in quick succession considering the frequency of the genre.

>But it's yuri so it's automatically a flawless masterpiece!
I understand the desperate need for some maintext yuri, but this mentality is the fucking worst. I enjoyed bits and pieces of it, but it's still garbage. 5/10 because Meifong was awesome.
>>
>>1946230
Tusk ending was pretty much obvious, though.
Yes, the promo material was misleading, but as soon as the OP aired, most illusions (and also hope and dreams) suffered some heavy damage.

Here, it's a show that shoves yuri in your face for 11 episodes and then fails to make the relationship between MCs official in the end. That's kinda dumb.
>inb4 learn to see subtle hints, autist

>>1946245
>Why do you say that like it's a bad thing?
Because the final fight seemed like a joke due to Mirei looking like an overgrown Amazon magical idol. Also, no OBADURAIBU playing in the background. It's like they wanted to get everything wrong.

>>1946246
No Overdrive is the biggest fucks up, but making the final battle looks like joke while showing flashy animation is a good thing. They even got real robot animators to animate Momoka Gundam.

>but making the final battle looks like joke while showing flashy animation is a good thing
Different strokes for different folks, I guess. After Mirei and Momoka's backstory I expected a flashy fight with lots of explosions, people yelling on top of their lungs and edgy spiky armor designs. Not... well, an overgrown Amazon magical idol fighting a fat titan while riding a lesbian phoenix.

MireMamo PreCure form is so bad it's good. And I hope you're not dissing Lady Lady firebird form there. It's the coolest part of the whole fight.

The whole fight is still very 'shonen' no matter how ridiculous Cure Virgin design.

It gave me a whiplash from a sudden shift in tone. In any other situation I would've enjoyed the ridiculousness of the design, but this time it felt too out of place for me to treat it as anything more than a fever dream.

Can't shatter the waifufag's dreams, right?

That's why >>1946266 They also didn't have a clear vision for who their audience would be and what the tone of the show should be. That's why it was all over the place from one episode to the next.
>>
>>1946050
Even though I'm a huge AnR fag, I understand why many people disliked the ending, although it was not as bad as they make it to be. It was not very satisfactory, but not the worst ending ever.
>>
>>1946287
A case of the the producers not knowing or understanding the audience. As is brought up constantly, this entire project is a mess.
>>
>>1946287
They didn't know who to appeal to. Waifufags? Yurifags? Lesbians? Actually it seems women were the most receptives, but since the producers didn't have a clear target in mind, and probably never thought women could be interested by this project, the result was this mess.
>>
>>1946287
The most prolific fanartists of the show are women and their twitters have only praise for the ending so any outrage over it is mostly a /u/ and /a/ thing
>>
>>1946287
If you'd read the PhD thesis on the yuri Japanese fandom that was posted here a while ago, you'd realize that no one in Japan knows who the target audience for yuri really is. Even the fandom itself isn't sure what the 'average yuri fan' is like.

The franchise is obviously targeted at straight males. Lesbians are welcome as well, but only the Japanese ones who know how to enjoy things, not western womanchildren who think everything is a personal attack.

Am I the only one who doesn't equate tentacles with dicks? I mean sometimes tentacles are really dick-like, but not all of them are. If you think about the way they move and function (and they're the type NOT to ejaculate), they're really much more like large tongues than dicks. Or am I just crazy?

I like to judge tentacles on a case-by-case basis. Your typical penis-shaped ones that squirt white fluid are most certainly out, while those that are controlled by girls that don't really have such a function, like Ika Musume's hair tentacles or Poison Ivy's vines, can generally be considered fine, if not neccessarily for everyone's taste. It's kinda on the same level as catgirls using their tails.
These are more dildo-esque tentacles that are more about sucking stuff out than pumping stuff in so meh.

Actually they were there to set up Mirei's iron will so she could break the tentacle illusion with ease.
>>
>>1946337
fucking disgusting.
>>
>>1946340
Because there was literally nothing else in the show to demonstrate that Mirei is incredibly strong willed.
>>
>>1946151
there's an OVA?
>>
>>1946348
Well Lady Lady, Kasumi and Akira are also some of the strongest willed characters on the show and they were helpless inside Mamori's arm
>>
>>1946352
Because they're not the MC.
>>
>>1946340
Nah, that was the golem shit. This one is to demonstrate Mamori sucking the virus out ouf them.
>>
>>1946352
But Mirei is the protagonist, even without any foreshadows she would be able to pull powers outta her ass to get out of there.
>>
>>1946356
>pull powers outta her ass

That is the thing, the staff bothered to have a proper set up for everything they used on the final battle. Is not necessary but is a nice gesture.

>faceless gang rape

Try again. There are plenty of other ways to do it. That was still entirely unnecessary.
>>
>>1946359
I kinda get your point, I just think they could have used something else to demonstrate that Mirei has strong will. Miranda could have made her allucinate about something less disgusting. Even gore would be better.
>>
>>1946365
It does fit with what we know of Mirei's backstory. She was an orphan shunned by everyone else due her affecltion with the virus, is not a stretch she had plenty of awful experiences on the streets before being drafted by the organization and that those experiences scarred her deeply

I could agree with you but the tentacles on VD pushed "water" or something into the girls mouth. They even briefly showed a bulge on Mirei's cheek when it entered her mouth, that made it a total dick for me.
>>
>>1946389
>I could agree with you but the tentacles on VD pushed "water" or something into the girls mouth

I don't want to defend that shitty scene, but you seem to have missed that the entire point was that the tentacles were sucking the virus OUT of them. The little white things were the virus being vacuumed out, not something going in.
>>
>>1946389
As long as it isn't semen (which is clearly male-specific organic substance), it should be okay, in my opinion.
>>
>>1946389

Wrong. they suck out power off girls'mouth
>>
>>1946389
They just looked like vacuum dildos to me. Those weren't even tentacles.
>>
>>1946396
That's a pretty dumb way of looking at things. By that logic a humanoid robot fucking a girl with a robotic crotch tube that spurts out a milky fluid is fine because it's technically not a man, technically not a dick and technically not semen.
>>
>>1946334
But actually the nips are not that bad about it. Ever since, past the 90's, I think, there was a steadily growing amount of girl cast* shows in anime, as well as yuri/yuri-lite stuff put into mixed shows as well. And now, at present time, we get shows like that almost every season. Just not as many as the hetero/male lead ones, of course.

The rest of the planet doesn't seem any different in this regard. Most stuff are a bit dude-ish centric in general. And even the great west has yet to have a girl cast* cartoon or something similar.

Girl cast* - Where a female is the protagonist, and most of the main and even secondary cast characters are girls. And this show's (i.e not shoujo shows) purpose is usually to focus on the plot, and/or the character relationships between the girls. Male characters are typically side or fringe, but they can add to the plot flavor, or character flow of the show. So usually, at minimum, there is less het to no het. At maximum, has quite a bit of yuri.

Actually, it looked more like air bubbles. You know, to let girls breathe while having a tentacle in their mouth. It's further supported by the fact they came out of Mirei's mouth during her obligatory rape scene, as opposed to going into it.

Mamori: Yes, I was informed of that before
Mirei: Then do you know that depends on the level of satisfaction there could be difference in the Arm's power?
Mamori: N-No..
Mirei: Then to increase the power of the arm please taught me how to please you better! Tell me the things you want me to do and where and how do you want it. Please teach me the things that will make you feel good.
Mamori: But why?
Mirei: I think that it's something that is absolutely crucial if we want to survive on this island.
Mamori: Mirei-san, you're really okay with this?
Mirei: I have prepared myself
Mamori: Well then licks ear
Mirei: moan Do you like your ears to licked
Mamori: I think my body likes it
Mirei: Somehow I understand why
Mamori: Can you please raise your arm?
Mirei: My arms?
Mamori: I knew it. We haven't got the chance to do some girl-maintenance since we got here after all. Mirei-san uhm.. your..
Mirei: N-No! [too cute]
Mamori: Don't worry, I think that embarrassment can lead to arousal
Mirei: Now that you mention it.. I think you're right
Mamori: M-Mirei-san y-your tips are getting bigger
Mirei: That sort of thing...n-no!
Mamori: Please check it.
Mirei: W-what?
Mamori: Please try to lick it [PERO PERO]
Mirei: E-
Mamori: Please lick it [PERO PERO]
Mirei: It's embarrassing...
Mamori: PERO PERO
Mirei: N-No..
Mamori: Then you don't have to lick it, I will tell you about other stuff that will make me feel good
Mirei: T-that place is...!
Mamori: Does it feels good?
Mirei: Y-Yes! It feels good!

Mamori: So the situation that will excite me sexually would be something like that
Mirei: That's too maniac. Don't tell me you were just playing around with my body
Mamori: N-No! T-That'd be absurd!

Well I enjoyed this show for what it was. When I started watching it, I expected yuri, ecchi and girls fighting each other with oversized weapons and that's exactly what I got and I actually liked the protagonists, which I didn't expect.

I liked the cameo for the girls from the game. I love Valkyrie drive my favorite Echhi Yuri

It was okay for what it was. Group it in with mindless ecchi anime like Queen's Blade and Seikon no Qwaser.

I don't like tentacles either, but I think that talking about whether people 'consider it yuri' or not is missing the point.

When you see something like that in a yuri show, are you actually thinking "Okay, I like yuri. I don't like it when things that aren't yuri show up in my yuri shows. Tentacles aren't yuri. So I don't like tentacles."?

I bet it's more along the lines of "Eww, tentacle porn. I don't like it, why did they have to put it in."
>>
>>1947042
I don't even entirely dislike tentacles. I enjoy consentacles. It just obviously doesn't belong in this show and it's annoying when they waste time on that that could have been spent on fanservice for the couples in the show or on making the story less dumb.

Queen's Blade was yuri though. I've caught all direct seasons, from season 1-4. Valkyrie Drive is actually more yuri than Queen's Blade, due to tighter focus on the characters, which has the female leads as the star yuri couple (but some of the side characters actually winded up being better).

But if you can't stomach ecchi, then I suppose Valkyrie Drive would be a hard-sell.

Your only fault is that despite knowing how you'll react when something like that goes down you still decide to go into series blind. Spoilers can be your friends, and you don't need to watch everything (or anything, for that matter) as soon as it's released - it'll still be there 6 months later.

99% of the artists don't give a fuck about pixiv, they just post it on Twitter and mostly untagged.
It's a mess.

Right? It's quite a phenomenon here.

I'd like to say it's because we get tons of people generally unaccustomed to 4chan, but that's just falling into tumblr boogeymen arguments.

Damn it. Why are all the supplementary materials for this so much better than the anime itself?

Okay, we need to save up all these stuff. I've kept the Lady Lady short story, but I didn't stash up the Charlotte one, since there doesn't seem to be a more in-depth translation. But, damm, I would like to have it back again, and get it down together with this Akira one.

One fanartist wrote a huge review/analysis/rant over Akira's story.

It's because Akira is not a virgin.

Well, they're also annoyed at the fact that Akira did literally nothing in the show and now she's suddenly a turbodyke with a girlfriend. They say they want to see her past animated in the OVA or drawn somewhere, like in an official doujin or something.
Not sure how her virginity connects with all that. Maybe it's just Google being stupid.
>>
>>1947350
No, actually the guy in the pastebin was praising the short story and wanted it to be animated. Will put up translation after I'm done entertaining my family.

Now I feel bad at laughing at him.

>Why didn't they put something so important into the main story~~PLEASE~~!!

Also says something about her girlfriend's arm being similar to Sri. They wonder if that was intentional on her mum's part, if she knew about her girlfriend.

Doesn't seem like waifufagging to me.

Folks! I spotted some more info.

[email protected]@転載は禁止
遥っていうすごい短髪で痩身なクラスメイト
寮でセックスしまくってたらある日突然遥がドライヴしちゃって
島流しになるくらいなら二人で逃げよう遥に言われるけど晶は病気と闘うと決めて
「いつかまたキスしよう」みたいなこと言って別れるって話

Brief and rough translation:
Akira's powers manifested when she and her girlfriend were intimate.
Her girlfriend, Haruka Sakaki, wanted them to run away, since Akira is being sent to exile on an island anyway.
Akira disagreed, as she wanted to face this armed-virus issue head-on. So, she said to Haruka, that when the day comes, they will kiss again.

AND, did anyone notice the OP? Is that Akira's girlfriend? Fits the description of short-haired and slim. (Pic-related)
>>
>>1947354
>So, she said to Haruka, that when the day comes, they will kiss again.

HNNNNNG. It's not fair that these short stories won't be animated.
>>
>>1947350
>>1947351
So he feels a lot like we do?
Maybe if the producers see the side stuff getting a much more positive reaction from fans they'll decide to give us THAT in a second season?
Probably not.

>>1947353
>>1947354
That would have been so much better than the many plot threads that went absolutely nowhere.
Hell, "I want to see my girlfriend again" would have also been a good motivation for her wanting to leave the island.
>>
>>1947355
>HNNNNNG. It's not fair that these short stories won't be animated.
Maybe in the OVA. Cover 5 has to be Akira.
>>
>>1947357
>Hell, "I want to see my girlfriend again" would have also been a good motivation for her wanting to leave the island.

Well, every time she gave her hope speeches she said her goal was to get everyone home with her loved ones.
>>
>>1947359
That's too vague to really mean anything.
>>
>>1947360
Well, she couldn't really say "by the way, I have a bangin' hot girlfriend waiting for me back home, so why don't you all sit still so we can be let out of here for good behaviour?", that would ruing her princely image and undermine the authority.

>>
>>1947368
That paragraph is about the short story connection with main story. Akira has been alone for so long with these lesbian making out in front of her, so the pastebinguy thought that she might be lonely and tried to do one person drive. The guy also wonder what kind of thought Akira had when Momoka groped her boobies.
>>

>i'm tired

>>
>>1947372
>The guy also wonder what kind of thought Akira had when Momoka groped her boobies.
From what we saw I'd say you could see she had pent up sexual frustration.
>>
>>1947366
>a cute girlfriend waiting for her
Bad news, Sakaki also carried the A Virus. Apparently she's an Extar. They said she tried to ran away but she's probably captured and sent to different island. Pastebinguy thought that with Akira being Akira she could become a politician and tried to change the law just to meet her again. Also Akira is apparently a brilliant strategist and tactician.
>>
>>1947378
>she's probably captured and sent to different island
Aren't different islands for different viruses? I thought all carriers of A-virus go to Mermaid.
>>
>>1947380
So far Bhikkhuni is the one confirmed for carrying different kind of virus. Nothing else about other island. That was just the guy's thought, apparently the short story didn't elaborate what happened to Sakaki after she ran away.
>>
>>1947378
Well it just depends on how long it takes for MireiMamo to make out with every other girl on the other islands doesn't it?. Mirei will get even with Akira by making out with her girlfriend.
>>
>>1947385
>MireiMamo to make out with every other girl on the other islands
If MireMamo was a canon couple, that would be the ultimate NTR.

These two had a cameo towards the end of the season? Does this means that the second season will have these two for the main focus?
