Vividred Operation

(12 episodes)

What’s it about ?

The war on pants is back.


Akane, grand-daughter of the mad genius who invented the free, clean energy generator located nearby. As perks, she also got a flying bike, as well as the means to fight the bad guys.

Grampa, though, seems to have had a falling out with his former associates, as they don’t seem to be getting much money from the generator’s operations. And he buries nearly everything he’s got into more random mad science projects, leaving his family barely pennies for the food.

(Said family seems to be limited at this point to those two and a little sister, who’s the one who hunts bargain bins and has to resort to creative cooking.)

Aoi, Akane’s best friend, is returning to the island the series takes place in after a long absence. Just in time for her plane to get caught in the crossfire between the authority and a giant mechanized war machine suddenly attacking ! Akane saves her just in time.

Production Values

From the director of Strike Witches ! As you’d expect, the show uses the tiniest excuses to have characters in bloomers, and the camera loves ass shots. It’s more than a bit distracting, especially as the show is quite good-looking aside from that.

What did I think of it ?

Urgh. The plot and the characters aren’t interesting enough to make up for the tediousness of the constant ass shots. Even ignoring that, it’s fairly generic anyway.

I've been kinda blogging about anime for years... but mostly on forums (such as's Tangency) and other sites. This site is an archive for all that stuff, just in case.
