Question For The Pond Scum

My friends, I have a question for all of you.  As I'm sure you've noticed, my writeups for Ben-To! are occurring at a rate that makes snails seem fast.  I've been busier at work than I was expecting, and since it's an old show, I feel like I can "relax" with it.  But I couldn't do that with a show that's currently airing, and that's where the question comes in.

Vividread Operation has just begun to air over in Japan, and it seems to hold great promise as a subject of a Wonderduck Writeup.  SDB calls it a cross between Strike Witches and Nanoha, and I suppose that's correct, though to me it leans more towards the 'magical girl' side of the spectrum.  Whatever, I can see it being just as singularly stupid as Rio Rainbow Gate!, or as singularly good as Ga-Rei Zero.  So I leave it up to you, my friends and readers, the accumulated Pond Scum: do I finish Ben-To!, or do I drop it and go with Vividred Operation

You must choose... but choose wisely.

1 Did he just call us Pond Scum?

2 Twice, actually.

3 I think it's evident that your heart isn't into Ben-to. If you're asking us, it's clear you want to switch. So go ahead and do so.

4 Steven is wise beyond his years.  Go with VRO.

(Brickmuppet: could be worse, he could have gone with the other half of the blog's name and called us all duck doo.)

5 Change up to VRO.  If you don't like where it's going, you can always drop back to Ben-To.

6 Gotta go with the crowd.  Vividred looks interesting.

7 I'd say switch.  I mean, like I'm going to get back to Deadman Wonderland?  Who would care at this point?

8 I also say switch to Vividread Operation, if only because Ben-to! is so monumentally stupid that I could feel my brain cells dying just from reading your writeups.  (You could always go back to Ben-to! later, if you still have the urge to torment us.)

9 I'll chime in for Vividred. Go ahead and make the change.

10 Am I the only one with a soft spot for Desaturation Lass? My vote is for Ben-To, but it looks like I will be out-voted.

11 Eight out of ten dramatic ferrets prefer Vividpants.  Red.  Vividred.

Did all the female characters have colours for names?  I noticed Akane, Momo, Mashiro, and Aoi.

12 Follow your bliss.  I never really got the point of Ben-to.

13 Vividred.  Go for it!

14 Of course, you could also try watching Rio Rainbow Gate! through a blue filter.  See what that does.

15 Do the switch!

16 So, looking at the logo for Vividred, we're waiting for girls named Midori and Kiiro to show up.
