Effectively degrading itself to absolute zero value, A-1 Pictures’ “Operation Vivid Red” has decided to share a sample of the marketing spread it will have in the November 2012 issue of G’s magazine – buttocks.
Evidently, this series doesn’t think too highly of itself, and neither of the audience which it is intended for – and whilst one would like to speak otherwise, A-1 Pictures is sadly the one laughing hardest in this endeavor. Unfortunate as it may be, a sizable group of the otaku populace are likely to be in a fevered anxiety of lust for this series’ premiere from the sight of a posterior being shoved in their face.
As actuality has it however, this image is surely no more than an indication that “Operation Vivid Red” will indeed be synonymous with something which is brown, yet certainly isn’t chocolate. Given that the studio has managed to throw some of it out to a grand success, they must have come to conclude that the Japanese animation fanbase are eager for a noun that starts with “S”.
With their currently ongoing debacle, and now this, one must legitimately wonder what the state of A-1 Pictures is. Shinsekai Yori looks promising undeniably – then again however, so did Sword Art Online to some extent, and that definitely did not turn out too well.
The thought is painful, yet it looks that the worst has certainly yet to come.
