This show takes the ever-popular “magical girl”-type Anime and removes all the “magic” from it; here, the “power of friendship” drives advanced tech instead of wizardry. Series-wise, ‘Vividred Operation’ is an interesting mix of ‘Dimension W,’ ‘Momo-kyun Sword,’ ‘Strike Witches,’ and ‘Sailor Moon.’
Akane is the “Amane” (see ‘Ange Vierge’) of ‘Vividred,’ if the latter weren’t locked in stasis for much of the series; without Akane, Kuroki and the “Alone” succeed in their plans and Dr. Isshiki’s hopes to stop them are doomed to fail.
Setting aside all the “docking” and “naked”-ness, ‘Vividred’ was actually fun to watch. The moral of this story is also quite simple and powerful: Humans, you see, require water, air, light, and friendship in order to survive. If we look lightly upon friendship or upon life, we lose our right to live. ~Isshiki Kenjirou
The only effective way to face anyone who’s lost their will to live is thus with friendship and compassion!
