SynopsisFriendship 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!

Vividred is a bootylicious party with a mix of action porn and, well, softcore porn.
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.
It isn’t entirely obvious, but you will notice pretty quickly that this is a mahou shoujo. Even though the characters get their powers from technology and friendship rather than magic, it is pretty clearly mahou shoujo, and a pretty unoriginal one at that. Honestly, most people will have predicted the end within a few episodes. The stakes are high, but the power of friendship comes through in the end. The story adheres strongly to clichés of the genre.
The story is frankly not too important in this anime. You watch this anime to have a good time, not to hear a riveting story. It holds together well, and arguably this unoriginality is actually a plus. The story may not bring anything new to the table, but it pulls it off with great skill. The way it delivers such conventional mahou shoujo story is actually very satisfying. This may not be the most intellectual anime ever, but the story is never opaque. I never once had to guess why a character did what they did or what the hell was going on, making this a great anime to watch if you aren’t very smart, or are drunk.
Vividred operation is a very pretty anime. The sci-fi elements show excellent attention to detail. Characters and backgrounds are both attractively designed. There are very few parts that were lazily animated and although there were a couple of hiccups, the show was fairly consistent throughout. The action scenes are great and not padded with too much dialogue. The show in general does not shy away from difficult animation and provides plenty of excellent action.
There is a lot of fanservice. It doesn’t really detract from the show, but it will annoy some people.
The music is upbeat and fits the mood of the show perfectly. The OP and EDs are good, but not stellar. Voice actors adequately fill their roles.
The first thing you will notice about the characters (if you speak any Japanese) is that they are named after their hair color. Unfortunately, every single character is shamelessly copy/pasted from another anime. The worst offense is with not-Homura, I mean Rei. The characters do play off each other splendidly. Being an anime about the power of friendship, the friendships between the girls are well-developed, if a little too sunny. Like the story, there is nothing new to see here. Their personalities may not be nearly as molded as their glutes, but they manage not to be emotionless boards.
This brings me to the fanservice. If you are one of those people who can’t stand it, just skip this anime. There is a lot of fanservice, giving special attention to the posterior. A huge portion of Vividred is devoted to close-up shots of sweet, sweet booty.
Vividred is a high-octane, feel-good anime that is perfect if you just want to have a good time watching. Generous action and glorious ass shots make this one of the most fun animes I’ve seen in 2013. This category is necessarily subjective, but I would recommend this to anyone who wants an exciting, fun but not very intellectual show.
Vividred Operation is like going to a concert of a really good cover band, like the Strolling Bones. Sure it may be completely unoriginal, but it’s executed almost perfectly. You may not have done much thinking, but you leave with a smile on your face. read more
It seems you've wandered down to the review section, wondering whether or not Vividred will suit your fanny *cough* fancy. I may not be an omniscient being who can predict all your tastes and values, butt I can tell you one thing - this show isn't half-assed when it comes to showcasing the artistically chiseled glutes of young females. From the front it may seem as if the show is merely another "Protect the world" cliche, but behind the scenes is a treasure trove of booty that will please the eyes of any man. I could rear my argument with infinite amounts of explanation, but in hindsight it seems like a bad idea. You may decide for yourself whether this show is amazing or at rock bottom.
If you came for the plot, leave. Vividred's plot is pretty much a remaster of Strike Witches, and the standard "Protect the world" trope. At most I could say the plot was added for the sole sake of easing the guilt A-1 would face after creating a show where the entire purpose was to shove as many ass shots as they could in without turning it into a hentai. Even so, the plot still exists and no matter how mediocre it is, if you enjoy the classic world savin' stories then by all means don't let the cheeks distract you from it.
This is what's going to seal the deal here folks. Budget isn't endless, and in many cases its what the studio chooses to do with what budget they have that makes or breaks the show. A-1 knew exactly where to invest their money here. In the snug fit of spandex, the voluptuous curves which make females so very attractive, and the slight bounce of mens hopes and dreams. A-1 knew it was a smart investment, because the rest of the show is easy on the eyes as well - though not as easy as dat ass.
There's no mind-blowing OST to be found here, but neither will you find a banshee-like score that eats away at your sanity. The tracks are perfectly mediocre. None stand out, but at the same time all are quite fitting. Intense for action, lively for the slice of life, and melodic during the emotional scenes. The seiyuu's do a professional job at filling the characters with emotion as well. These are cute sexy (sexty?) girls, and they sure do sound like it.
Great diversity is found when analyzing these characters; not mental diversity but physical. Their personalities are what you would expect from a show like this: Cute girls doing cute things in different ways. Don't be discouraged though, because what the girls lack in personality, they make up for in a kaleidoscope of body types. There's busty ones, flat ones, tight ones, small ones, one with a ponytail... you name it and its there (and scantily clothed no less).
I can't say i didn't enjoy it at the beginning, but before long it lost its magic. You can only carry a show on buns for so long before they become stale. While the fanservice was there, it wasn't enough to keep me investing 24 minutes a week in ass alone. It's nice, but the true worth of a show comes with dynamic characters, a rich setting, and a compelling plot. I can't say I've actually dropped Vividred, I've just fallen behind and can't be bothered to catch up.
The story, character, and audio aspects may be lacking, and if that's what you came for then scuttle off. But if you came for eye-candy and cute girls saving the world, I wouldn't put this show past you. This show is ultimately about hindquarters, and every person can enjoy looking at the spandex encased butts of teenage girls; the deciding factor of whether or not you drop it will be exactly how long you can enjoy it. read more
Lolis flying in the air fighting aliens with tons of fanservice; seems about right.
They have the same feeling like in the VO there is a 'Alone' while in the SW there is a 'Neuroi'. Also loli girls fighting it and flying.
Bright color scheme in a futuristic utopia, until enemies come to invade. Protagonist is a young, eager girl who is always looking to help others, related to a scientist that seeks to better the lives of everyone around him. Drawing style is somewhat similar. Same ol' lolicon elements, too. Both are great.
If you want to return to the Strike Witches world, with a couple of different twists, this is your show.
If you want to see what Vividred was probably inspired by, this is your show.
Both of these have girls fighting enemies to mankind.
The main females in both don't wear pants on a regular basis.
Both have a fairly out-going, kind (I guess) main character.
Both have nice/similar animations.
Both anime revolves girls who use machines and do aerial combat.
During episode 1 of Vividred Operation, I had many moments where I though I was watching Strike Witches. They are very similar and I can already see that if you enjoy one, you will enjoy the other.
From the same people, this anime has a heavy influence on to it such as girls fighting mechanical monsters, the military and navy, and tons of fanservice and Yuri into it.
I'm excited for this with the Director from Strike Witches and he's doing the character designs!
Basically Strike Witches meets Power Rangers!
Girls flying. Aliens. Same art style. Panties.
