Vividred Operation – 10
And here we have Kuroki Rei’s DERP face. LOL.
Episode 10: “Light and Shadow”
I never knew crows were such pervs…
This week’s Vividred Operation gave us a wet and wild beginning, an explosive middle, and the inevitable bittersweet end. What a perfect way to break the trust of a person than to have circumstances reveal the person’s closest friend is actually (and unknowingly) the enemy they’ve been fighting for the last ten episodes? Finally, the show is upping the ante, and getting darker and edgier, and I cannot wait for the next two episodes.
Sometimes I think the Incarnate Engine disaster was a large scale version of this one
First things first, the revelation of Prof. Isshiki’s close encounter with the Alone (or the Alone’s master) at the time of the Incarnate Engine Disaster kinda felt like someone watched Titan A.E.’s plot and borrowed a few points. To clarify, the Drej in Titan A.E. decided humanity’s a threat because the protagonist’s father invented the energy-to-matter technology, and so destroyed Earth. The Alone, or whatever sent them, is (probably) testing whether or not Humankind’s possession of the Incarnate Engine makes them a threat to the Alone. Coincidence? Perhaps, perhaps not.
Kuroki Rei’s inner thoughts: DAT ASS…
Then we have Rei. Lonely, misunderstood, Kuroki Rei. She just needs friends and a good hug every now and then. I really thought it was weird that she defrosted and befriended Akane voluntarily, and only two episodes just before the season ended, before they found out each other’s secret identities. Watching Rei smile, have hamburger steak dinner with Akane (despite having mayonnaise blow up in their faces), sharing a bath, then making a pinkie promise at night was so touching I had to replay the scenes – because I already had a feeling of what was coming up next.
Oh look, it’s just two girls flying a kite…Nope! It’s revelation time!
Then the “betrayal”, or at least what looked like betrayal from Rei’s point of view, happened immediately the next day. It was so heartbreakingly delicious, from way she screamed “Liar!” at Akane to her being electro-stunned and captured by the JDF troops. Looks like it’s “Friendship Over” time. XD

P.S. With Kuroki Rei’s censored bath scenes, I really think the Blu-rays will sell like pancakes. After all, I’ll probably get a copy myself, just to see the enhanced animation and “plot”. LOL.
Actually, the crow probably lied to you first…
So what happens now? Will Akane and co. lose faith in Rei after learning the horrible truth? Will Kuroki Rei spend the rest of her life in prison, muttering that Akane was a liar all along in her maximum security solitary confinement cell? Will the UN/JDF/The-Powers-That-Be decide to try, convict
and execute a middle-school girl for crimes against humanity, aiding and abetting the (alien) enemy, and illegal possession of firearms?
