    The story of the card game follows what happens when "Hairou" portals suddenly open, fusing three different worlds together. As a result, various mysterious "Exceed" powers are awakened in teenaged girls. An academy for these so-called "Progress" girls is built on the isolated Seiran Island in the Pacific.

    Episode 1

    She's got potential.

    That was an incredibly dull way to start this show. It's action, followed by informative info dumping, then a bunch of casual chat in the bath with streaking beams of light, then more action in the form of a sparring match where the MC fails to advance. I get that this is supposed to market a card game, but even so that was not getting the job done, certainly when the girls are naked for most of the episode for no reason. Anyway, I'll give it another episode just to see what Saya meant there at the end when she said that there won't be a next time, but it's unlikely that I'll be watching this.

      That's a lot of nakedness. Anyway the part with the two stotic girls talking to each other was kind of annoying. Stotic in STEREO is not a good thing to hear.

        The end of the world is coming... yet again? I'm getting a bit tired of the apocalyptic stuff. I feel like I've seen cities being destroyed in about half a dozen premieres this season.

        And they introduce all the characters as they're bathing and walking around naked for most of the episode, mostly just to show off how pretty the characters are and the cast full of noteworthy seiyuu. Utaha would have a lot to be critical of here.

          Yes, yet again.



          The greatest problem with the story and this episode in particular was that it was boring. It was really, really boring. I don't care how many naked-on-the-BDs girls you can throw at me, it was so god awfully boring. There wasn't a single interesting moment, not a single spark of…something…anything…to stop if from being boring.

          Kind of obvious this will be my one and only check into this thread. HxH Magic Breasts at least was incredibly stupid to make it stand out. This one was just boring.

            It's quite clear that they're throwing a lot at this series and hoping it sticks. The voice cast alone is impressive, but the show itself felt... confused. We had a fight, a bunch of naked chicks wandering around talking to their friends, rivals, and colleagues, and the... they fight again? It's an undeniably attractive show, from both audio and visual points of view, but not sure about any kind of plot...

                Dat nudity. They were basically roaming around the place like nudists. If only it wasn't censored. It didn't have much focus on boobs and butts or groping and stuff, they kinda showed the nudity casually (if that makes sense). The artwork was good, the girls were cute (which was a given because Silver Link.), the story though, isn't anything interesting at all. The enemy is a giant dildo lol. That's something I guess. Anyway, this so doesn't have my interest. It didn't even have much comedy or attempts at comedy which most shows tend to have if everything else about them sucks. I'll maybe give it another episode mainly because I have time to spare on crap but I probably won't be seeing this to the end. The cute naked can't save it no matter how much it tries.

                  Episode 2

                  And the show gets a bit more interesting. With the A-list girls off to fight the enemy, the dregs are left to defend the base, which--surprise--gets attacked by the enemy. Amane and the rest of the drivers get encased in crystal, leaving the girls without their powers. I guess the enemy isn't so stupid after all.

                    Re: Episode 2

                    There's no going back to being ordinary.

                    Saya just wanted to be special, and she got her chance by awakening her Exceed. Things got pretty serious here when an enemy attack draws the top fighters away, leaving Amane a sitting duck for a sneak attack, and that leads to Saya having to prove her worthiness. In the end, Amane ends up crystallized. That was a much better episode than the first seeing that the very least, the fanservice didn't take up half as much time as the first episode, and that stuff is actually happen that leads to dire consequences. Well, I wasn't highly invested in this show to begin with, and while I'm more interested in it, my interest isn't high enough to keep on going with such a crowded watchlist already.

                        Re: 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.

                          Re: Episode 2

                          Darn it, after asking myself "How many episodes will it take for Saya to stop throwing well a Saya", I'm now left wondering how many episodes it will take to rescue Amane.

                          Saya, please get your act together, save your waifu and then you two can get married, make out and whatever else.

                            Episode 3

                            Feed the dark side.

                            So not only is Amane trapped, but her mind is being corrupted to turn evil. That has already happened with Hinata and Mikage as those high-ranking fighters are out for blood against Saya and company. But while Saya doesn't have the rank, she has the willpower. So what needs to happen is that the girls need to keep on fighting each other to delay the collision, and certainly having these girls dying out is going to be a big problem. That was a better episode there, but still not enough to make watching this worthwhile.

                            So with that, I think I have had enough of this show. I was debating whether or not to continue for at least one more episode, and in the end I decided to go for it. At least it has gotten more interesting, but not enough for me to keep on watching.

                              Re: Episode 3

                              I should have seen the turn to evil coming. Interestingly the mind control isn't along the lines of "Yes, master", but more along the lines of corrupted personalities. Probably so the girls can think they're in control. Aoi is living her dream of being the main villain. Except she's under control by Amane & others, who are under the control of the monsters who are probably controlled by a bigger bad & she might be controlled by one too. Oh it's going to be some girl. I fully expect the obligatory bath scene to be the final battle.

                              In any case, putting aside promoting the card game & fanservice aspects if you stop and think about it, this is basically a romance. Our Heroine has lashed out at her one true love. She realizes she's screwed up and what she's lost. Her mission? Get her love back.

                              Seriously if Amane & Saya are not embracing by the end of the series, the whole show will feel pointless. Actually this episode made it clear that at the very least they should be kissing. However I know how anime works. So I'm lowering my expectation to embracing.
