This is getting a little confusing. Are they all from Alternate realities??

Nice touch using some real physics and terms.

I'm going to keep watching.

I know a car company helped develop this but c'mon... Do the magical brooms have to sound like cars...

Episode 2

So Subaru and Aoi get some training in so that she could ride her broom, and while that's going on Subaru finds her way back to the fountain where Minato is. And while training is going on there's another fragment to be captured, two in fact, and Subaru and Aoi get it. But Minato comes in to swipe Subaru's fragment away, and now the girls form a school club that's advertised as a cosplay club. Well, the girls were acting cute in this episode, but overall that was just bland and dull. I got bored of this show pretty quickly, so that's if for this show.

I quite like this show so far! It has a level of whimsy that I think is perfect for a magical girl series. Also - it doesn't take itself too seriously. A lot of magical girl shows have been getting dark recently. While I don't mind that, I'm glad to see another lighthearted example.

Everything is just executed in a way that really appeals to me. Like the orbiting engine pieces, or how their orbits get more - what's the right word? eccentric? - when they get close together etc. I just really like how they pull off the whole magic thing.

Also, them being from different worlds or timelines is another interesting aspect that I didn't expect. I think the whole red string of fate thing probably ties into that.

But I do have a few nitpicks - so rather than just gushing about the show, why not mention them? One is the engine sounds from the drive shafts. Not a big fan of that. Along with their brooms being called "drive shafts" for that matter lol. Also, sometimes this show has very awkward transitions. Like, the setting and set up will just change rather abruptly. It almost comes across as jarring at times.

But all in all, I quite like this. It's a show that i'm greatly looking forward to each week. Can't wait to see more!

Didn't finish episode 2... just doesn't seem to be giving me any reason to care or go continue watching. Sadly... dropped.

I'm expecting them to pull a Madoka soon. If not in terrible deaths but more of a feeling that there is a sinister under-plot the girls (and we) aren't aware of. Those fragments? The girls just wantonly throw themselves into the hunt without knowing anything, and even self-admitting they don't understand what's going on. The president is not telling the (whole) truth.

ep 1 and 2

Liking the application of physics here. So far I'm enjoying this, but one major flaw is the usage of CG. It's horrendous.

It's there... I've just watched it.

Not a bad episode. Some nice effects and a little bit more development.

Ep 3

Its neat enough to keep my attention still...nothing feels heavy so that makes it easier to put much weight unto it.

Being a car guy and a former Subaru owner I get a kick out of finding all the auto company related "Easter eggs" hidden or blantantly shown throughout the anime.





Such as the many, many four pointed stars right out of the car logo.
The front of the "drive shaft" is the stylized Subaru winged oval grill bar right off the car.
And the piston and connecting rod Subaru's Dad brought home in this episode? Yep, sure look like Subaru pistons.
I need to rewatch the first two eps and look for more...

I am really enjoying watching this show. A trip to the moon was in order this week. We also got a bit of background on Hikari which was nice.
