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.
In an alternate timeline, humanity has struggle to fight these "Aliens" that is occupying around Earth. Thanks to the advance technology, scientist had created these power suits that will repel the alien invaders. These power suits are highly advance aerial dogfight combatants that will engage and eradicate the aliens, having the advantage for military support. There are funny moments, cute, yuri and fanservice.
The difference is that Vividred take place in a future like setting, using a Vivid Power suit, and fight the aliens called "Alone". Strike Witches take place in history, where they use "Witches" as their suits, fighting "Neuroi".
In many ways, Vividred Operation is the spiritual successor to Strike Witches. Despite the fact that Strike Witches leans more toward moe/military themes and Vividred Operation is more of a sci-fi oriented magical girl series, both share the common themes of love and friendship. Much like Strike Witches, Vividred Operation is a character-oriented series, and shares the same quality of character development as Strike Witches. It should also be noted that both main characters Yoshika Miyafuji and Akane Isshiki are both energetic in personality and strive to do their best despite the harsh circumstances. Both shows have their fair share of fanservice, however the fanservice is more present in Strike Witches, whereas Vividred Operation's fanservice is more tamed. If you want more action with your moe, you will not be disappointed with Strike Witches. However, if you're looking for something like Strike Witches that is a little lighter on the action, while still delivering the same quality of character development, then Vividred Operation will not disappoint. read more
Searching for cute girls that protect people and world with sophisticated technology and magical power, this both anime is the answer. Both anime will tell you about group of girls fighting against evil creatures, and... with some fanservice event. Friendship and trust are growing for every battle they do. Recommended for people who like action and sci-fi genre with all MC are girls.
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 series' protagonist are cheerful and upbeat and include girls transforming into battle suits to fight. Symphogear has the added benefit of them having to sing while battling and has less fanservice than Vividred.
Both series features science fiction themes involving young girls fighting against enemies to protect what they treasure.
Both series' main female protagonist have similar personalities. They both like to help others, wishes to protect what they value, and are generally energetic and able to brighten anyone's day.

Both series has action and some fan service during fight scenes.
Both series main characters' days are changed forever after the incident where the alien invaders enter their lives.
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.
In both series, there are girls who have acquired powers beyond their understanding. From that day forward, their lives changes forever.
Both series' main female protagonist are also kind, helpful, compassionate towards people, and not afraid to stand up for herself for others.
Both series also a cold hearted female character who is set on her own sights on things.
Both series features a lot of action, drama, comedy, and some emotional factors.
-use of techology based /mecha- abilities, combined with Magic elements in order to fight evil.
-the power of friendship as well as MC/ Rival situations
All these result into epic fighting sequences. Make sure to give it try.
Girls using technology to fly and fight off a invasion.
The girls are also very close to each other or become close over the course of the series.
And in both the main character needs to transfer because of the airforce.
In both series, there are young girls who has the responsibility and power to stop an invasion. It is up to them to stop the violence and eradicated the threat.
Both series' main character also shares a bond of friendship and are willing to help others in need.
Both series contains action, drama, and some fan service. Most of that action takes place in the form of aerial combat as the girls in both series uses advanced technology to combat their foe.
It's practically the same anime, Mao-chan is just less serious and more focused on overall cuteness.
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.
Mao is similar to Akane, they're both the main characters and they both receive their 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.
Symphogear g is definitely similar to Vivired opeation. Both series:
-use techology based /mecha- abilities in order to fight evil.
-the power of friendship goes without saying as well as the transformation sequences.
All these result into epic fighting sequences. Make sure to give it try.
Both have their share of yuri action to mix in the mecha, also don't forget lots of skin showing on those scantily-clad uniforms! Only difference is whether you'd want to venture in darker territory in Ange vs "mahou shoujo" world of Vividred.
These two magical girl shows follow similar tropes in execution, with monsters from an unknown place attacking and a group of roughly five girls are in the center of the action. The characters both have similar color palettes and they follow a general characterization based on the color they are representing. Honestly, I liked Yuuki Yuna a lot more than Vividred, but both are enjoyable if you like magical girl anime.
In both shows, creatures from another place invade Earth and it takes a team to defeat them. However, Nobunagun has the characters be reincarnations of historical figures, where Vividred Operation has the girls adopt a magical girl like persona to defeat them.
Authors focused on one extremely stimulating aspect in both. In Vividred asses, in Koufuku eating scenes. Both are very erotic. Other similarities: light atmosphere. Group of girls engaged in their own affairs. A lot of humorous elements.
I felt that the technology used in both anime's were very similar and they both had the same feeling. Anyway while I was watching the first episode of Vividred Operation I had a strong recollection of Eureka Seven.
Both shows feature girls in specialized battle suits warding off alien invaders.
Vividred is more serious, while Twintails is more comedic.
Fanservice also seems to be a (significant) part of either show.
OK, so it's a little embarrassing that I watch these, but these are good time fillers. Both have a small group of young girls that kick a little butt. Both are filled with fan service up the wazoo. Both have fun characters.
Vividred is actually not bad until the "dock" where it gets overly cheesy
Senran Kagura isn't quite as cheesy but it has similar cheesy moment.
Senran Kagura is ninjas
Vividred is ... well girls that apparently kick butt with a little help from magical/scientific-esque keys.
If you like one then you are bound to like the other.
A group of children use mechas or mecha-based abilities to protect the world from mysterious invading entities that have more to them than initially suspected. There are also some other similarities between these two series that you will notice once you get far enough into the storyline. I'll leave that as a surprise.
Both are cute series that balance moe comedy with action and some light ecchi. Simple, cheesy little stories with very little depth, but enjoyable enough if you want something that's not too challenging. Friendship appears to be a shared theme.
