Synopsis

The story begins when Ao opens a package that arrives at her doorstep. Inside the package is Gourai, a Frame Arms Girl: a small robot capable of independent movement. Gourai is a newly-developed prototype: a Frame Arms Girl equipped with an "Artificial Self," an advanced AI that gives her a personality. Ao is the only one that has activated her. Gourai begins to gather both battle data and emotions, starting a day-to-day life with Ao, who knows nothing about Frame Arms Girls.

Frame Arms Girl is an advertisement. It exists for one reason and one reason only, to sell those toys. But in that, there is magic that can happen. For the process of selling toys is not a simple one. Toy line anime can't work like normal commercials. They can't just shove in the product in the viewer's face and yell at the top of their lungs, "BUY OUR TOYS!" They have to make them special and appealing. They have to draw the viewer into the world of the toy and get them to want them. And it is this mindset that makes Frame Arms Girl read more

Frame Arms Girl began as a standard snap fit model kit line made by Kotobukiya, featuring Armored Girl versions of their Frame Arms line. Now, despite being a little small for a figure line, Frame Arms Girl is one of the most popular model kit lines Kotobukiya has ever made, gaining a huge fanbase and a lot of buyers. So naturally due to it's success, they take pride and confidence in their creation.

Now, of course, it's lowkey obvious that this line really appeals to otakus, with them being model kit girls and all, not to mention all the showing skin and fanservicey bits. Yet anything read more

TL;DR Section at the end of the review. This review may or may not contain minor spoilers.

"I've come to realize that emotions aren't something you learn – they have to be experienced." —Gourai

Frame Arms Girl (F.A. Girl) is a show that had potential to be something great, but unfortunately fell short.

Ao Gennai receives a package from her father one day, which it's contents are revealed to be Gourai, a Frame Arms Girl. From here, their friendship grows as Ao teaches Gourai the variety of emotions humans feel. Along the way, they meet many friends and foes alike.

This story and setting had vast potential to be read more

this is weird

I thought it was a PR stunt that ran for 12 episodes; then at the end there's a cliffhanger WTF
(#`Д´)

lemme get this out there though; IT IS A 'PR' STUNT (¬_¬)

first of all, no base story line whatsoever; it revolves around an all female cast (which doesn't really matter once you get into it), of which most of them are in mini skirts
"like really mini, and for some reason always has some sort of pants angle"

again, don't really mind

so... story line. its just a show where female action figures are geared with artificial intelligence and they're pitted against each other read more
