The Melodrama

ViVid Strike! 10 continues to pour on the melodramatic elements that have been played up in the series. This was played out in two areas. One was Rinne’s self-loathing and her remembrance of the time she was happy with her adoptive family. Add to this her guilt over having brutally demolished the bullies that abused her.

Second is Fuuka’s recollection of Rinne being the sweet, happy child while Fuuka had been the negative, moody one. However, Rinne won Fuuka over and Fuuka found herself smiling as a result.

As such, we get the tragedy of their current situation where the former childhood friends are now fighting. And then, through the power of their fists, Rinne and Fuuka can become friends once more. The end.

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

Not much to talk about this episode, so I’ll wrap this up.

  • I think that because ViVid Strike! 10 made such a big deal about Fuuka’s rapid rise in power and her ability to quickly learn new forms of fighting, King Records is hoping that Fuuka and Rinne can be the new face of the Nanoha franchise, changing it to the Fuuka franchise.
  • The melodrama stuff wasn’t just limited to Fuuka and Rinne. Jill also got in on the act.
  • So, one more episode of Fuuka and Rinne fighting and reconciling, then what? An episode of Fuuka winning it all?

ViVid Strike! 10

In the end, ViVid Strike! 10 is a very melodramatic episode full of action, signifying nothing.
