Vividred Operation – Unknown Enemies and Talking Ferrets


Vividred Operation is an astonishingly self-aware series, it fully understands the absurdities of the whole premise surrounding the characters, setting and enemies and often deliberately plays to that. We know by now that the Manifestation Engine, while providing 95% of the world energy is also somehow inexorably drawing these strange, faceless monsters called The Alone towards it. We also know that such an attack was predicted by Kenjirou, who was inevitably let go and considered a bit of a crazy old man by those in charge of maintaining his invention, thus ignoring his warning and potentially dooming the world to oblivion. The way the series heroines attack these unknown and strange foes is somewhat reminiscent of Strike Witches, with their ability to fly and the absurd strength and power that their suits provide them. The way this series deals with the unbelievable power that these girls possess, and their ability to effectively smash the alone into the ground is rather interesting. Read more of this post
