THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

Awesome episode. I learned bit about the L85A1. It was funny when the little kids were making fun of Eru because she only gets fired 100 times and then gets thrown away xD

This show is awesome after all. I really liked that gun information part, being a noob you can actually learn something about guns - very welcome. It's great to see their take on guns is serious, combining fun and actual information about guns.
Also loved that Goemon refference. Made my day.

L85A1 Facts:

The Bullpup weapon is a standard issue rifle for the British military only, info about the unrealiablity od the rifle are so true that in other colonies of the UK like Australia, Canada and New Zealand never issue it as their standard assult rifle for their armed forces, instead in Australia and New Zealand the standard assult rifle that were issued to their armed forces is the AUG A1, while in Canada they develop their own assult rifle like the C7 and the C8 which both are a variation of the M16 rifle.

Lmao, you can probably throw in the Historical genre tag.

Also... Ichiroku cleaning herself more. Does that have something to do with her gun or herself in general?

except ecchi part
it's connected with the gun - this particular type (M16) had problems with jamming and being vunerable to dirt or remains of gunpowder (this was quite a problem in first series before they changed it's type)... so cleaning it is important because of how it was designed

plus all those cute moments... this series is so sweet :D

The entire first scene proves that XEBEC's gonna XEBEC.

A lot of gun info this ep, though the iai with Sig was a little suspect. Looks like Sako's gonna be introduced in the next one.

England LOL

Seems like M16 very hygienic .The firing gas directly blow into the bolt, making it easily dirty due to the gun powder gas ..

Funco-chan and the lolis sympathize with her too

*Eru-chan is angry at sensei

*Sensei offers her drink as an apology

*Eru-chan hugs sensei and says she loves him

*It's super effective!

I'm starting to love this. Very informative. (When my friends ask me in 12 episodes time why I know so much about guns, I'll be like; "Anime")

Also, LOVE the Lupin Quote. Did no one else see that?
No.

The gun information and history is pretty cool.

Poor Eru - she now needs even more hugs after she got humiliated like that. Least her sensei offered her some jiuce. That's how you get a girl on her good side.

I like all the details and information on guns in this anime it's definitely something worth watching for anyone interested in guns.
Tho i would have dropped something like this if it didn't have so much knowledge on guns in it.

I finally got to hear some things about the MP5 and the poor girl got teased because of her sister right away guess there scared of her big sister so they take it out on her.
The thing that got me thrilled most this episode was that i saw a picture of a snapper riffle at the part where FNG came out shy looking at the teacher.

It's also a mystery why the English still use the L85 i knew it was a very unreliable weapon so why would you send your soldiers out with a weapon like that.
Normally you want to send your soldiers out with reliable weapons and tools since this increases there survival and your chances of winning the battle.

I would think that they should be "eclipsing" M16 with the M4, since the M4 was made specifically to eventually replace the M16 (which is to be honest, "too old" already and only still in use because of how many modifications it has undergone).

Educate and entertain! The show is doing well so far, I like it 4/5. Poor L, I feel sorry for her knowing her story (never liked L85s when I used them in games though). The little comment on British people cracked me up (no offense).

Only reason I am rating this a 4 instead of a 1-3 is because it is actually teaching me things. That, and they make good use of all of the weaknesses and strengths of the guns.

It's all really cute - but it's nothing groundbreaking, new, or amazing in any meaningful way.

Happy to see them get to the good old sub-machine guns. :D Empi is adorable. I think she's my new favorite over her older sister. I hope they have a P90 or (my favorite gun to use in Black Ops) a MAC-11 character.

Dropping knowledge bombs about the L85's. I knew the guns were bad when they first came out, but didn't know they still had problems today. Poor Eru. Hugs all around. :D

I hope they go into the good/bad points of all the guns. I loved hearing about how the M-16 in my Vietnam class was supposed to be this great gun, then it hit the Jungle battlefield and totally borked up after getting too dirty. They never even sent the poor soldiers cleaning kits. :( I think that's why Ichiroku is so adamant in keeping clean. At least that's my take on it.

Also, this fact is slipping me: These girls are anthropomorphic guns. So does that mean they transform into guns? People actually hold them and use them? Or are they just, like, physical manifestations of the gun? I never got why a gun would practice using a gun. Wouldn't they themselves have to be used to get better? My brain hurts. I should stop rationalizing an anime. -.-;

Poor Elle. You may suck but you're so cute that we don't mind. And btw, I don't think they made Sixteen to be like a super-weapon although compared to how much they ripped on poor L8, they did smooth over the jamming issues of M16 a little too easily.

So apparently 'googling' is also a word in Japanese. In my native language, Dutch, the word "googlen" is an official word in the dictionaries, and in the preview for episode 4 they said something like "guguute" that was translated as "google it" in the subs. I find these kind of things funny.

On-topic: this show is actually really informative, but this episode was maybe too informative. The other parts of this show are really nice to watch. Even though XEBEC fails so much, I liked every show I've watched from them (okay, Softenni made absolutely no sense)
And this show is really discriminative.
