    It's okay for what it is...
    ...That is to say - decidedly not what it was advertised as. Anyone expecting a sci-fi saga (hopefully) a bit less complex than Noein is going to be sorely disappointed.
    The first three episodes demonstrate this to be pretty much a typical magical girl show, albeit with a sci-fi aesthetic. Every remotely sci-fi topic gets handwaved away at best, and at worst we'll get stuck with something about ...

    Mix a bit of everything
    This anime looks similar to Strike witches since the school uniforms have no pants nor skirts, only panties! And they have super power through some new technology. Another thing, when they transform the first thing come to my mind is Sailor Moon. It's like they put these 2 animes together. I can't say the anime is not good. I enjoyed it but I really felt like I was watching SW/SM-like series.

    Want something Unique? This isn't it.
    Like the title says, if you want something unique, you'd best look elsewhere. This anime is about as Generic as it comes both in terms of plot and characters. It also feels quite rushed and there's no real character development over the course of the 12 episodes (Of course, it could be argued that it was too short for any real development).

    The characters are one dimensional and really ...

    It could have been better
    I had hoped Vividred Op would be as good as Strike Witches. It wasn't. Very rarely was I not aware that they're school uniforms were panties and some kind of military dress uniform shirt. How hot is that island anyway?!? The premise was interesting enough and I was most interested in the character of grandpa than any of the girls. The writing could have been better and most of the last ...

    Vividred Operation disappointment
    This show began really well, and I had high hopes for it after the first couple of episodes. But it's been getting worse and worse as time has gone on.

    There isn't anything original about it, but that was obvious from the very first. I can look at everything that's going on and say "Uh-huh, Rei is obviously supposed to be Fate Testarossa" or "The docking maneuvers? Obviously stolen from ...

    Typical "Magical Girl" Anime, Just Too Much Fan Service
    I see quite a few negative reviews about Vividred Operation on Crunchyroll. I can understand their displeasure. The amount of "fan service" they supply in this series is a bit over-the-top. A-1 Pictures (studio behind this series) has quite a few series that focuses a little *too much* on fan service (crotch shots/bouncing breasts, etc..). This is no different and it shouldn't surprise someone ...

    Another 2013 guilty pleasure; UPDATE
    For some odd reason I find myself reviewing shows that aren't that great. This a decent show, Like the new idol show, I would call this is a guilty pleasure. It's kind of over the top. And what's up with those school uniforms? It can't be underwear; they look like exercise shorts. And how the 2 warriors "dock" is beyond ridiculous. A kiss on the forehead, and the 2 unite, becoming a 17 year ...

  • Spoiled by loli-pedi-esque fan service.
    This could have been good, but the butt shots are too much.

    The plot is a little passé, but the character interactions make up for it. You've got some funny and touching moments mixed in with typical magical girl like transformations and team building. Grandpa's kind of silly, as is Akane's over-the-top enthusiasm for mayo.

    What is a total deal-breaker, are all of the butt shots. The girl's ...

  • Panty shot after panty shot...
    What starts out as a genuinely good show very quickly degenerate into an out of control pervy delight. For the first few episodes there is a decent amount of character development but then it just falls apart into senseless panty shots. I understand the transformation sequence once or twice being shown but constantly? You could simply just show a flash of light like they actually did one episode ...

  • Disposable fanservice fun
    This is a pretty by the numbers disposable magical girl anime. It distinguishes itself mostly by having a bit more fanservice than usual and nice art, but otherwise it's completely generic.

    Four friends battle ill defined generic monsters and a somewhat better defined dark magical girl, and ultimately triumph through the power of friendship and really short shorts.

    It isn't bad, if you're ...
