Anime Spotlight #10

More pantsu…:

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.

Obligatory ‘Gurren Lagann’ reference…

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!
