Vividred Operation episode 1 First Impression : Magical Girl?

mahou shoujo

I’m not sure if I should take this show seriously or if I should laugh at it. The episode was really enjoyable to watch, there was action, science that created magical girls and there was a huge robot that shot beam of laser. At the same time, there was unnecessary Lolly short pants shot and the grandpa has become a puppet. I feel like this show has the story for being great, but the overall feel of the show is so childish and typically Japanese that it scares me a little.

new grandpa

First let’s take a look at the characters. The grandpa is awesome, I love his character and the way he acts, or at least, I used to, until he became a doll. I am really not sure if I can live with the fact that such an amazing character as the grandpa will now forever be stuck in a doll. Meanwhile the main character is a Lolly and she is chosen to save the world, for a setting in the future and something more akin to science-fiction, this show really sound more like a magical girl show.

falling down

The show premise is so vague right now that it is really difficult to have a clear and definite judgement about the show, I just feel like the show could stay absolutely awesome or fall down to pointlessness at any moment. We have had so many random and completely unrelated event already, you have cool science, mixed with young girl, Alien of some sorts and girlish friendship. I have no idea what or when to expect anything. I know this show will flow more towards the magical girl side of things, but there is good and bad magical girl, will this be the next madoka? or will this be absolutely awful?

The show looks good, there is no problem there, the story look good at first sight, the drama and action were intense in this first episode… I just don’t know. I think I am simply too scared to make a good assessment of this show, scared that what ever good thing I say about it will change for the worse in the next episode. I have a bad feeling of fillers coming up after only 3 or 4 episodes, I might be wrong, but I don’t like the feeling.

crazy scientist

I will most likely keep watching this show, if second episode is any good, I will cover it. Otherwise, this will be my last review of it as it makes me feel like a pedophile to have so many crotch shot of a little girl.
