Anime Review: Vividred Operation



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! (Source: ANN)

Since the anime is PG-13 it’s kinda childish. Here is the thing, the anime is about the bounds of friendship which is an awesome theme. Then there are the “Alone” which are evil machines which means good vs. evil. Then, there is the “nothing is what it seems” message. You see each aspect sounds good, but as a combination it’s kinda cheese… Or shall I say ridiculous. The storyline felt so calculated. I’m not saying that the anime is bad. There were some good aspects about the anime, I did enjoy it, kinda. Though, it wasn’t anything wowing of amazing.

Overall Rate: 6/10
