Vivy: Fluorite Eye’s Song, with its most serene atmosphere, beautiful backgrounds, and characters, is one of the stunning-looking anime this season has to offer. However, while it does look good and has a sounding premise, it is also a surprisingly dark series. Vivy: Fluorite Eye’s Song is a sci-fi thriller that hints at the sinister side of artificial intelligence and its dramatic impact on human society.
Synopsis: In the future, humanity has made great progress in technology, creating autonomous artificial intelligence capable of performing tasks similar to or even greater than humans. Each AI has been programmed to perform a specific task. Vivy is one such AI that works at an amusement park called Nialand to make people happy with her songs. However, one day she encounters an AI, who claims to have been sent from 100 years in the future to prevent a destructive war between humans and AIs, starting Vivy’s 100-year journey to save the world.
Although Vivy’s approach isn’t beyond the ordinary, it takes a deep story with familiar concepts such as time travel and AI into a new and exciting direction. Unfortunately, even with great animation, the narrative still feels a little bland as the series focuses on-premise over characters. If you are looking for more anime with a similar theme, then look no further. Here are some anime similar to Vivy: Fluorite Eye’s Song.
