Synopsis

Kiss kiss, bang bang! The arms race takes on a startling new development when the arms come with heads, legs and very feminine bodies attached!

Yes, at Seishou Academy every girl is literally a lethal weapon, and they're all gunning for the top shot at getting their own personal serviceman! Needless to say, it's going to be difficult for newly recruited human instructor Genkoku to adjust to working with a living arsenal of high caliber cuties with tricky names like FNC (Funko) M 16A4 (Ichiroku) L85A1 (Eru) and SG 550 (Shigu). Especially since many have hair triggers and there's no bulletproof vest that can stop a really determined coed! He'll have to rewrite the operator's manual on student/teacher relationships, and pray that his job description won't include having to field strip and reassemble one of his cadets in the dark. But unfortunately (for him) FNC's already thinking about becoming HIS personal weapon, and she usually gets what she aims for!

Im tired of all the pretentious reviews. Something doesn’t have to be meaningful to be enjoyable. People go into shows like K-On, which is well-made anyway, and immediately dismiss them as ‘cute girls doing cute things’. You see, cute, enjoyable, and aesthetically pleasing aren’t good qualities to have because you can’t just enjoy a show, you have to taste it. Anime reviews are like equally pretentious middle aged people that think different wine tastes different.

Upotte is one of my all-time favorite anime. Not because it’s meaningful or groundbreaking, though I also enjoy shows like that; it was just really fun to watch. I enjoyed every ...

Mixed Feelings
The premise of sentient guns going to gun school where they learn how to be better guns is certainly unique. The show is almost an edutainment in places rattling off various historical tidbits about the guns and the reason for their production, along with informing the characters personalities and various gags. If you stop to google every now and then you WILL learn something about gun history and I always like a bit of the old tangential learning.

As far as how well the show actually *uses* that premise, it's a mixed bag. There are really only three big shootouts in the series, and each of ...

Continuing on with girls with guns month, Upotte is an ongoing manga that started in '09. Written by Tennouji Kitsune. In 2012, Xebec, the studio behind Bakuretsu Hunters, Bottle Fairy, Mnemosyne & Rinne no Lagrange, to name a few, released a ten episode ONA based on the manga. I have no idea what to expect from it. So let's just take a look and see how it compares to their other works. At the very least, it's probably better than Mnemosyne but that isn't saying much.

Our tale takes place in Seishou Academy, a school where all the students are guns who can wield their more ...
