Airi grew attracted to the kids and didn't want to ship them off to her alienmates anymore and so, decided to shutdown the whole thing by provoking and letting Hime kills her.
By letting herself, a supposedly pretty powerful Unknown, be killed by a human, she made the other aliens from the other side of the gate think that humans are really dangerous and should not be messed with.

You think someone as kind as Hime would be able to bring herself to kill her easily if she puts up no resistance at all?
Hime wants to defeat the villain to save everyone, she doesn't want kill her mother. If she wants Hime to kill her then she needs to play the villain role properly.

Jeremiah Sanchez

Something I found on /u/:

Apparently, aside from the short episode 1.5 novel, BD1 also comes with a scenario book containing scenes that were cut from the anime. Here is one of our Kanagawa couple related scenes:

Kanagawa dorm - Mahime's room - Morning
One bed room. A room that looks like it belongs to a princess.
On the soft and fluffy canopy bed, Maihime is sleeping.
Next to her pillow lies an old-fashioned pocket watch.
The phone next her pillow starts vibrating but is quickly switched off by Hotaru who is standing nearby.
Maihime hazily opens her eyelids.
Maihime: Huh, Hotaru-chan, why... this is my room, you know...?
Hotaru: Yeah, I know
Maihime: So you already know...
Maihime closes her eyes and slips back to sleep happily.
Hotaru creeps into Maihime's bed.

Jordan Gomez
Jordan Gomez

To be fair that didn't exactly have to involve Airi manhandling Hime. Just by taking the appearance of an Unknown was enough for Hime and Hotaru to want to kill her. She didn't have to scar Hime for life either by being kind to her a split second before she's torn apart.

It as basically one of the bad endings for saya no uta.

Blake Thomas

Backing that up. Hotaru is much less of dyke too. Hime's just really gullible instead straight out baka and Y.Aoi's Madoka voice would have suited LN Hime better.

Yuri's a lot more subdued between them and the main focus was their reconnecting and building up faith in one another. It's still there though, just more akin to HibiMiku from symphogear than what it was in the show. Hotaru actually got the term Himenium from the blond traitor.

If the Kanagawa LNs ended with the first one "Shino" and Hime's dynamics would have been autist ladykiller and unintentional girlfriend as depicted here.

Brayden Sullivan

It's one of those projects with no passion, I imagine. They were given the job to do with a low budget and they just went "eh, this shit will do" most likely. I do agree though, the QUALITY I honestly don't mind, it's the fucking still shots during "action" scenes that got me the most. It just screamed laziness and really disappointed me, especially in the last episode where you'd expect some of the budget would actually end up going to.

Carson Torres

I've watched more than 450 titles already, it's just that I usually know what shows I will or won't like when I decide what to pick up, and I rarely bother to finish the shows that I somehow ended up watching, but they got really bad midway.
6-7/10 means it was a good show, and no way in hell I would call this show "good".

Camden Thompson
Camden Thompson

OST was fantastic. Characters were decent. Story was alright, but nothing amazing. Had a clearly defined start and ending so no cliffhanger or shitty ending bullshit. I think calling it garbage is a bit of a stretch. The animation quality was utter shit, there's no doubt about that but everything else was at least average or better.

Here's how I rated
OST was ok(the only thing that I can call "good" in this show), characters and story were generic, and the animation was garbage. That's why it's 3/10 to me. It could have been 4-5/10 if the animation was at least average.

Just wanna throw out that 450 watched isn't really much when you drop things often. The fact that you finished it at all shows that it had passable merit and Qualidea Code certainly had more going for it than against it.

6 as it is understandable. 7 if they had fixed the animation. A 3 is like Magikano, Kampfer or that tv airing of DAL's first episode. I'm trying to recall what qualifies as a 1 but memory of the horror escapes me. I know it wasn't mahou sensou at least, that was a 2.

OST was forgettable, characters were shallow fetish fuel, the plot was a laughable, tryhard clusterfuck that desperately tries to hook you, yet still managed to come across as boring.

The fact that you finished it at all shows that it had passable merit and Qualidea Code certainly had more going for it than against it.
No, I can safely say that after 6-7 episodes I was just forcing myself to watch it, hoping that it would get better. The characters were utterly boring and you could have predicted 70% of the story after first few episodes
7 if they had fixed the animation A 3 is like Magikano, Kampfer or that tv airing of DAL's first episode
And a 7 is like FMA, HxH, FMP, E7, DTB, Macross F and so on
Do you really think you could easily place QC next to them?

She actually did that in a "non-sexual" way back when she was still Shino. She set up a pair of binoculars from her room to watch Hime and then started to grope her way up from Hime's legs and thighs to her stomach and chest. It was why she knew Hime's Himes are 80 cm D cup.

Jordan Campbell
Jordan Campbell

non sexual molestation... what?

Christian Jones
Christian Jones

She said it's for "investigation", the better one knows their enemies, the easier it is to kill them. Since Hime's himes are big and soft, she concluded that Hime doesn't train or have much actual physical strength, and that most of her power comes from her world.
She stalked Hime, collected her trashes and put hidden cameras in her room for the same excuse.

Carson Scott
Carson Scott

Of course. That was the bottleneck factor here.

The fact we didn't get to see Hotaru pull off the OP shit she should have done was a major letdown. Her third technique is supposed to be using her ability 1000x in an instant and it's enough to take out one of the human's planes. All those cuts we saw on her arms in the last episode had to be related to that and we don't even know what she did with her Zoro impression.

Ichiya was an annoying character.
Canaria was a fun character.
Kasumi started off boring, but quickly became cool.
Asuha was best imouto.
Hime was a great girl, both in body and spirit. Her crying scene was tough to resist.
Hotaru was not that interesting.

Why couldn't we have more episodes focused on the detective work of the siblings? Those few episodes were 10/10. Also, what was up with their vision when the seals got broken? They initially see a living hell, but it's actually just a red-tinted Tokyo?

Christopher Nguyen
Christopher Nguyen

Is it ever explained what happened to Canaria the moment she "died"? Their perception may be obscured by the unknown's chip but they still loosely see what is actually there - humanoid enemies when there's a human, drone-like enemies when there's drones being sent etc. yet when Canaria dies she flat out gets crushed, the entire land beneath her disappears and a large pool of blood is shown yet she is perfectly fine. Is this just an oversight?

Jaxon Harris

Subdued. They outright beat you over the head without how much they want to fuck/wuv each other in the first few eps.
And the dark haired one is the thirstiest dykiest chick ever.

Nicholas Reyes

Fuck blu-ray.

Get around the television monopoly by streaming and selling directly to the audience, and use social media and crowd funding to get stuff off of the ground.

When they start speaking to the audience and asking them what they want and getting the really talented to deliver, instead of flinging darts at a board and letting the people in charge and well connected have their way, good stuff can happen.

Gabriel Ross

The LN never specifies whose POV this page is from, right? If it's from Hime's then she is no less of a yandere than Marika.

Michael Wood

Some TV stations offer VOD services as well. Better leave crowdfunding out of this, it's a hell of its own.

It's clearly meant to be Marika though. Hime is too trusting and headstrong to have thoughts like that.

Yes, better animation would have made it rank higher. The story was good, and most of the characters were good, I'm kinda mad they fucked it up like this.

I'd give it another point if the early pacing was done better. I went in not knowing what it was, and I totally expected it to be another shitty battle academy harem like everyone else who dropped it. They should have made it clear this was an ensemble cast and not a chuuni and his harem.

Nicholas Wilson

I just can't think of a single thing it did particularly well or even competently. The music was passable but the artist did even like how it was used and unlike some brain dead idiots I don't give a show big points for having some theme songs or music that is okay if it's still dog shit otherwise. I also don't decide to watch a show because it has LiSA or some equivalent overexposed shrill banshee doing a theme songs. Aside from the music which you can tell Sony Music put the most resources behind everything else is abysmal and clearly a distant afterthought I've come to expect from an Aniplex show nowadays. They really need to stop pretending to be an animation company and just go back to the Sony Music Entertainment identifier.

Zachary Ortiz
Zachary Ortiz

It has some nice twist and the interaction between the characters where entertaining. More so in the earlier episodes. I had fun with it every time hime or the incest couple was on the screen.

Mason Parker
Mason Parker

The characters were pretty solid and their interactions are what really made the show.
MC being edgy and getting constantly torn down by the sniper was fun to watch, Maihime being noble and heroic was handled better than most series that try to pull that kind of character off, and the siblings were cute as fuck every time they were together.

The plot was kinda shit but the characters in it worked nicely.

Blake Johnson
Blake Johnson

No, the greatest thing was when she got her neck molested by her brother. That monotone voice mixed with her general disdain for his actions, and coupled with her not-so-secret brother complex, all melded together in one adorably cute scene.

You will never pin down your sister as she obediently lets you molest her neck

Robert Rivera
Robert Rivera

The fact that she clearly thought he was about to forcefully do something untowardly sexual to her body and them just submitted was unexpected and awkwardly hot. The almost disappointed reaction when he dismounted was so blatant that it made me feel like this was something I wasn't supposed to be seeing.

Alexander Perez
Alexander Perez

I'm not going to say that QC was good or that it had potential to be more than your average forgettable show but, like many have mentioned over and over again, it was horrendously butchered from start to finish.
Like you, I also enjoyed the music even if this was, in my opinion, one of his weakest soundtracks so far. Besides that, the characters and some of the dialogue between them stopped me from immediately dropping this show. The entire Chigusa family, especially the mom, and the banter between onii-chan and Ichiya "I don't know if I want to fuck Kasumi more than Canaria" Suzaku are good examples of the few salvageable things from the anime.

Levi Reed

Not really. In the flashback, Hime said she wasn't strong without Hotaru, and looked clearly afraid when she found out she had to sleep in a different facility. The main reason why she was able to hold on to the city for 10 years was also because of her promise with Hotaru. And then when Shino showed up, she was all over her.
Hime's obsession over Hotaru is not to be underestimated.

Hime would be pregnant shortly after Hotaru got back her memories and by the time the anime happened, there would be a mini Hime being carried around by Hotaru.

I wish I knew more about how the anime industry works.

Like look at the Asterisk War or Erased. They were both done by A1 and were generally well made for being seasonal anime. Asterisk War had some good fight scenes and decent sakuga.

But Qualidea Code has some of the worst production values I've seen in quite some time.

Did they like outsource the majority of this show to Korean animation studios?

Elijah Price

All comes down to what investors are willing to put forward on top of the fact that the anime is often handed off to the lowest bidder. Asterisk was an already established series and the first season had a good reception and sold decently so they had reason to dump some more money into it.

This is a brand new project that they've slapped together along with a bunch of other shit (prequel LN etc.) all at once and combined with the non-existent budget they put forward it ended up with what you see, a complete shitshow in regards to the animation quality.

It's unfortunate since there's absolutely nothing fans can do about it. You can say "But user, you can buy the merchandise and the BDs!" but that's not really the point, the initial product is meant to provide enough interest to drive the sales of those other products. You don't throw shit in my face then expect me to pay hundreds for the BDs just so I can potentially get a better version of shit thrown in my face again.

The stupid thing is that in this scenario it completely ruined any potential returns the series may have possibly had so instead of potentially having a larger budget and thus more interest thus more sales they went with a near zero budget and non-existent sales.

Actually the LNs came first and were originally just an experiment by Speakeasy. The anime wasn't planned until later and in fact Speakeasy were initially surprised when they were approached for an anime.

Angel Powell

Asterisk was the last dying grasp of publishers trying to milk battle harems, specifically the magical academy setting, and it failed spectacularly.

I don't know what the fuck the producers and Aniplex were thinking. All those big names and great freelance animators hired to work on bland trite. Were they trying to emulate the success of IS? Most likely. Did they succeed? All we know is that they definitely got screwed over by Rakudai airing in the same season and I guess screwing goes both ways there.

Cooper Clark

It didn't help that the two shows were an exact replica of each other. I can understand following the same genre (battle harem, isekai etc.) but following the exact same plot with a few names changed around is pretty fucking bad for both shows. One of them really should have waited a season.

Ian Cruz
Ian Cruz

I don't understand. Why have all these big names which are probably not cheap to get and then spend nothing on the actual product?

It's like blowing all your budget on the trailer and then draw stick figures for the actual show.

In other words I actually have no idea what I'm talking about and am just making shit up that sounds plausible. At least you might be good at a game of Balderdash cause you had me going for a bit there too even.

I just find it hilarious that the one show Cred Forums is desperately trying to talk up is a show universally disliked or people are totally indifferent too pretty much everywhere else. Like of course Cred Forums would pick an actual bad show that did basically nothing right or competently to champion and defend. Maybe A-1 made the show look bad on purpose so then dumb anime fans would turn around and claim the other aspects weren't embarrassingly managed in comparison. Goddamn Cred Forums is just so fake and dumb sometimes.

Liam Walker

Cause it's not actually popular or well received at all even in Japan. Only Cred Forums is trying to make a case for this show right now. It's twitter page never even got above 30K subscribers despite solid marketing and presence on streaming and cable sites.

Why does it upset you so much that Cred Forums is talking about this shit? Just move on, user. It's more sad seeing your same exact posts complaining about people giving this any sort of attention, even on its dying days, than the show itself.

Asterisk, as a light novel, was already many volumes deep and was rather successful before the anime came along, as far as I'm aware. The first season sold decently, nothing amazing but it at least made a profit. This also shifted even more LNs. From an investment point of view a second season seemed like an easy choice to make considering it didn't utterly flop and already had somewhat of a fanbase behind it.

Carson King

That changes absolutely nothing. If the first season failed they could have easily pulled back. The second season was not announced, at least the official airing date wasn't, until 3 months after the first season ended in which it was announced for a month later so 4 months in total. They had 4 months to gauge their project. If it went tits up they could have easily gotten out of it, it's not unheard of for shows to be pulled off the air. Of course I do not know their contract so I can only speculate at the end of the day.
