Yura Yamato has just arrived at the high school division of Stella Women's Academy, when Sonora Kashima invites her to join a club called "C³". Sonora is the third-year student who became the new head of this club for military survival games. The other members include two second-year students (part-Japanese Karila Hatsuse and G36K-wielding Honoka Mutsu) and two other new students (Rento Kirishima whose family runs a Japanese sweets shop and the really short Yachiyo Hinata).

C³-bu, in a word, is confused. It doesn't know what it wants to be. Is it a slice-of-life about cute girls shooting cute guns? Is it a story about how the main character loses sight of what's really important while chasing a dream and how she works to gain it back? Is it a tale of the supernatural link that a girl has with an ancient Japanese warrior and how she uses her power to change the world? The answer is none of the above. It is instead a jumbled mishmash of all three. Due to their radically read more

The idea of a group of cute girls doing cute things isn’t exactly an original idea in today’s anime industry. Series such as K-On!, Saki, and Bamboo Blade are just a few to name. Even more recently, series such as Upotte and Girls und Panzer even added the addition of weapons to its tropes for more flavor. I mean, cute girls with deadly weapons at at hand tends to make a show more interesting right? Well for Stella Woman’s Academy, there’s the concept of airsoft guns and with that comes a new twist of entertainment.

There have been many successful shows using cute girls and heavy machinery such as Girls und Panzer or even So Ra No Wo To. But nothing left me as disappointed as Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C³-bu. I consider myself a Slice of Life fan with reasonable tolerance for slow paced, low action rate type of shows and therefore had some expectations for this Anime for the summer. But boy oh boy this show felt like a one way rollercoaster, and it wasn't going up that's for sure.

For the first couple episodes we are introduced to this Highschool club type of setting that's not uncommon, where these read more

If you've been around the anime community for long enough, you have no doubt heard of the so called "Moe" genre. With a focus on cute girls doing cute things, (usually in a high-school setting) Moe series tend to focus more on comedy and various slice-of-life situations then plot and character (See: K-On! and Lucky Star for two very popular examples). But what happens when a show that has seemingly "Moe" characteristics attempts to delve into deeper themes, such as self-worth, the struggle to become a better person, and the consequences of your actions? In that case, we get a show like C³ (Full title: read more

Anime: Upotte!!
The setting for these two anime are very similar, revolving around school-based gun battles. Stella Academy has a slightly lighter feel to it because it doesn't feel as serious because the use of air-soft but the feel of the battle excitement were the same or even better. The focus was on teamwork, tactics and STYLE. On the stylish movie type moves and exciting stunt-like teamwork and tactics.

Besides the gun and school setting the animes also share the humorous feel to it. Moreso I'd say in Stella Academy because of clash of a general view that such air-softers are too hardcore and a bit  read more

Anime: Sabagebu!
Both are about girls' Survival Clubs with Airsoft

Anime: Girls und Panzer
Girls school setting with some combat scenarios. I think both are worth watching, but I'll leave that up to you. Please don't confuse this with Upotte!! though. Besides the firearms, the similarities are few and far between.

Anime: K-On!
Similar characters and similar club activities.

Anime: Houkago no Pleiades (TV)
"Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C³" / "Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C³-bu" and "Wish Upon the Pleiades" / "Houkago no Pleiades" are both slice-of-life series by Studio Gainax surrounding a group of young girls.

The protagonists of the two shows have in common of being the newcomer to the group.

Anime: So Ra No Wo To
There is a military influence on the two; the characters in Soranowoto are soldiers, while the characters in Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C³-bu compete in military survival games. Both focus on a group of young girls after a new member joins. I feel like the two have a similar vibe mainly because they are centered around a main character, who from the start has promise but is clumsy and lost in her new environment, and viewers watch her slowly grow and understand herself, her abilities, and her place in the group throughout the anime.
