Synopsis

Friendship is the key to protecting the world.

That is everyone's wish. Here in a world where science has solved all questions.

This story is set in Oshima. The happy, carefree 14 year old Akane Isshiki lived a poor, but well loved life together with her reliable little sister, Momo, who does all the housework, and her grandfather, Kenjirou, a genius inventor who only created useless devices. When the weather is clear, they can see the artificial island, Blue Island, across the sea. In the center of that island rises the revolutionary Manifestation Engine, a discovery that solved the world's energy problems.

It is a peaceful future, just like everyone dreamed of. One where everyone can smile and be happy...

But suddenly, the world is visited by danger. An unknown enemy, the Alone, appear, targeting the Manifestation Engine. As none of their weapons worked and they fell into despair, a lone girl takes a stand wearing a red "Palette Suit" which wields a great, hidden power. Before long, allies gather around her to fight.

And their friendship becomes the only hope for saving the world!

It was.. eh. It's alright by all means, but it just seemed to lack and kind of depth. It's completely obvious that it draws inspiration from other mahou shojo, and while it's able to pull off what its trying to be like, it does so in a very... lack luster way. I found myself completely confused at the antagonists motivations and modus operandi. Try to really think about why the antagonists does what it does and why it does it and you'll figure out what I mean. I feel like this tries too hard. It tries too hard to be deep. Perhaps it's just me read more

Vividred is a bootylicious party with a mix of action porn and, well, softcore porn.

SPOILER-FREE

A-1 brings us the touching anime-original story of four shapely butts as they fight off aliens, or monsters, or something. Oh yeah, there are girls attached to these butts and they have characterization and stuff. And there’s a beach episode with boobs, but they give way back to butts. And then there’s a fifth butt, this one gets a close up within twenty seconds of the show starting, really setting the tone for the rest of the show.

Now seriously let’s have a review.

STORY 6/10

It isn’t entirely obvious, but you will notice read more

L-lewd!

Vividred Operation has become the butt of a lot of jokes since it aired. In a manner not dissimilar to its spiritual predecessor, Strike Witches, this anime has been dismissed as bottom-of-the-barrel pandering trash, an asinine attempt to cash in on the sexual obsessions of those gross otaku. This seems terribly unfair to me. What ought to be taken into account is how well Vividred Operation succeeds on its own terms when you more closely examine the contours of its plot and characters. It seems unfair to hold Vividred responsible for not following conventions that it had no intent to follow in the first place.

I've been a fan of Strike Witches so when Vividred Operation was announced, I was pretty excited. After all, this series is about saving the world without pants once again. In fact, the world that this series takes place in doesn't seem so ominous. As a matter of fact, Vividred Operation looks like one of those paradise worlds from the future and one that I would definitely want to live in. It looks like a paradise, it has some features of a paradise, and maybe it is a paradise. Rather though, I gave this series a shot and what I discovered it was from far read more

Recommendations

Lolis flying in the air fighting aliens with tons of fanservice; seems about right.
Both shows have a joke-level "sci-fi" setting, which looks more like military mahou-shoujo. Both shows are focused on girl's friendship, befriending enemies and some shitty drama. The funny thing is that if Symphogear feels like a third-rate clone of Nanoha, than Vividred Operation feels like a second-rate clone of Symphogear. A profanation of the genre.
Both anime have five magical girls and a main character with ponytails that is really interested in a dark-haired mystery girl. They are also both are somewhat dark series.
A lot of elements in this show seem to be heavily borrowed from the Nanoha universe:

- Magical girl/mecha crossover, complete with (fanservice-heavy) transformation scenes;
- Main character who wants to be friends with everyone and doesn't take no for an answer;
- Antagonist with a cold and distant outer appearance, who seems to be manipulated into doing 'bad' deeds and may not be all that bad;
- Main character's sidekick/animal mascot is a ferret.
reportRecommended by AO968 - Add to favorites
Girls operating robots to save the world from space invaders. Both have a bright feel to them with lead characters who are very eager to help people without care for their own safety.
It's practically the same anime, Mao-chan is just less serious and more focused on overall cuteness.

In story:
Both are about a group of little girls who transform into marching band style uniforms to fighting off aliens in a city by the ocean with the support of the military.

In characters:
Mao is similar to Akane, they're both the main characters and they both receive their powers powers from their grandfather.
Aoi and Misora are almost the exact same character, they both already have established friendships with the main characters and are the second to receive their powers.
Kagome Mishima and Mizuha Amagi are both women in the military who get assigned to be the school teacher for the main characters.
