SynopsisDuring the early 20th century, along with technological advancements, scientists were able to develop sophisticated magic. The combination of science and sorcery was Makinot, circuits made from spells that were put into objects to bring them to life and even gain a personality. It was developed as a military weapon and has now spread throughout the world.
Akabane Raishin is now attending the Royal Academy to become the best in the world. Accompanied by the lovely teenage girl Yaya, who is actually Raishin’s puppet weapon, he plans on rocketing to the top of the class. However, his test scores come nearly dead last although his combat skills and determination are second to none. Raishin has to compete with the deadliest of classmates if he wants to come out as the king.

Bare in mind while reading that this is my first review.
The plot seems interesting but average to people first looking at this series and deciding whether or not it seems interesting and worthwhile to watch. Those were my thoughts before i actually watched the current episodes that were out. This anime is just amazing.
The Main character is apparently weak but his doll is apparently strong. This unorthodox pair combines the two different types of main characters that people prefer: A weak main character that gradually grows and/or a strongass character that can almost never be beaten. I'm not gonna go over all the girls in the MC's some-what harem because there's no point and would just make this review extra long. All you needa know is that they r not annoying at all like most harems where you would usually have a problem with 1 or 2. The most annoying part would probably be the MC's doll being obsessive and -that other word that i cant figure out at the top of my head, meaning her wanting to keep him to herself sorta thing- but the thing is that its part of her appeal and part of the comedy in this anime. So overall the characters i give a 10.
Very nice art that matches the action in this show. I don't really know how to describe the art but all you gotta know is that its very good AND it doesn't have panty shots every nor have anything ecchi related like shirts being ripped open around the breast area and stuff~
I will talk about why the story got such a low rating in a sec. First, the plot is very interesting with the one goal of vengeance. Unlike most animes about vengeance, the MC is not cold hearted or violent or anything like that. In fact, he cares about a lot of things and is very kind hearted. His goal is to become strong in order to kill the guy that destroyed his family. This sets a goal that can be expanded upon very much. This is where i gave it such a low rating: the plot i would give an overall of 9/10 or 10/10 BUT this anime is going to be only 12 episodes long. Although this anime could be easily elaborated on and expanded to a 24 episode series or even a 52 episode series, it is only a 12 episode series. That means the whole story is rushed or very fast paced. I don't want this to be the reason why you would not watch this anime though. Yes its fast paced but it still flows together and is very enjoyable. This anime also includes a sort of harem and ecchiness. Normally that kills a show that isn't fully ment to be fanservice but this anime knows how to put it together along with the plot. The harem is slow and gradual and isn't all too obvious. The ecchi is very light and doesn't seem intentional at all. Overall, i gave this a 8/10 with mostly, or i should say "only", the 12 episode pace lowering my rating.
Every episode for me had been exciting and very enjoyable. I would most likely rewatch this anime again some time in the future after all the episodes have been aired. IDK what else to say but all you needa know is that it is very enjoyable :P
I gave this anime an overall of 8/10. I did not bother rating the sound cause all you needa know is that it matches the anime and there's nothing weird with it. The scores average out to be a 9/10 but i still give a personal total of 8/10 overall. You can probably guess why i rated it 8/10 overall if you've read my whole review. Yes, it's because it is only 12 episodes long with a pace to match it. But like i said, don't let that hold you back from watching. It is still very enjoyable.
I recommend this anime to anyone. One word to describe this anime would be "unorthodox". I hope you enjoyed my review and i hope you give this anime a shot :) read more
Unbreakable Machine-Doll is an outstanding show. I feel it is quite underrated this season, so I felt compelled to write a review. This will be my first review, but I hope you will find it useful in some way.
Story in this show is very compelling. Despite being somewhat clichéd, it gives a nice insight into the characters' pasts. Both Raishin Charlotte have a certain reason they're fighting, and it allows me as a viewer to better understand why they would want to fight to become the "Wise Man" - which seems to be the title of the best puppeteer in the world.
A massive reason of why I love this show so much is the art. Normally I'm not a super picky person when it comes to art, but this show is just superb. The way the characters are drawn is not only new, but it's very good. I haven't seen this style of drawing in an anime before, but I love it. Battle scenes are great, characters are great (Yaya is the cutest girl on the planet), and overall the art is just very well done.
I'm not one to pay attention to sound, but I couldn't find any reason to take off points here. I've had no problems with the sound as of now, so I see no reason to not give a full 10 points here.
Characters are very well done. Each has their own reason for fighting, and the fact that the puppets have their own personalities is very interesting. I'm not going to write too much about Yaya here because I could go on forever, but let's just say she's my favorite female character this season.
Absolutely loving this show, easily my favorite this season. Has the perfect balance of romance, action, and comedy. Did I mention this show has a character named Yaya in it? She's awesome. This show is awesome.
It's been a great first four episodes. I really hope they can keep up the amazing pace, and that they don't mess the ending up somehow. Not really sure what else to say here...Yaya is the best.
Thanks a lot for reading my first review, feel free to point out things I could have done better.

These two titles both did quite well for their first episode release, as most of us know, one more than the other. What binds these two together in my opinion, is the fact we have a very strong male lead, who seems to be quite powerful to the point we can assume most fights in both shows will go in favor of the main character.
Now, both series try to mask this sense of Over Powered-ness, which offers some nice action scenes.
The plot has some similarities, like the mortality of every character, which can be exploited in both series. These series are not averse towards fanservice, if it's not eye candy animation, it will be the light or explicit ecchi scenes. Don't get too alarmed.
If you like such characters, with skill and the needed resources to seem OP in gamer slang, with or without the sometimes needed character development, you might like these series as well.
Both stories are action-packed fantasies with mystery elements.
Both feature strong (personality and skill-wise) male leads.
Morality is touched on in both series.
In SAO, characters are stuck in a video game and mainly fight monsters.
In Unbreakable Machine-Doll, the main character uses magic to fight other humans and robots in an academy setting.
Unbreakable Machine-Doll has more comedy.
Both have humans using their dolls (Machine-Doll) and demon (Gash Bell) to fight different kinds of enemies. In Gash Bell, they want to become the best and obtain the master title, while in Machine-Doll, the main character wants revenge.
