So reading the tags of this anime (action, sci-fi) you may think (like i did): "Cool! Custom cute robots fighting!"; well that was true, but not the only truth. Most of the anime will lack a TRUE background plot and the fighting scenes are not...really the top...
Let me explain in the deep:

Plot - 5 (i am being good here)
Basically it's a slice of life anime without a defined plot. After the first episode you could see the ep 6, then the 2 and you will notice NOTHING. The only exception to this are some minor arcs of two episodes but that's all; you can see read more

This is not at all what I was expecting after watching the ONA. It is more in the vein of shows like Hidamari Sketch, Working!, and Acchi Kocchi. (Renkin San-kyuu Magical? Pokaan also comes to mind). It is an enjoyable slice of life with comedy elements. I found the climax (for which, suddenly, everything ends in fiery explosions despite the utter lack of precedent within the show) to be the most predictable and least enjoyable part.

I'm glad it is not what I expected. After the ONA I thought, "If they made a full length series for this it read more

Ye. Busou Shinki. These are my thoughts on the story, as well as a little background information for better understanding.

Busou Shiki is about a world in which there are 15 cm. girls that are mass produced. Said girls have a conscience and feelings. They live to please their masters.
If this is sounding to weird, let me put it in layman terms. Imagine if your Gundam models became girls, got a brain, and lived to serve you. It could also be described as bite sized Infinite Stratos. That's pretty much it.

So, the actual story is just kinda eh. It has no real direction read more

This review counts Busou Shinki as 13 episodes, with the OVA included as the final.

Busou Shinki is an anime about cute girls doing things in every day life. Shinki are little automatons modeled after girls, built to serve their masters. Originally designed for combat, they are now seen in various lines of work along side their masters.

If you are looking for an anime filled with battle harems and shounen shenanigans, then this is not for you. Busou Shinki is exactly what the description says. Futuristic slice of life with tiny robots.

In terms of having a story, the anime has one, but it's very loosely connected, read more

THE STAFF
- Animated by 8bit, a minor studio that has produced nothing but passable ecchi shows.
- Directed by Kikuchi Yasuhito, who has made several anime of several genres, none of which are particularly good.
- Based on a toyline by Konami, meaning this is just a toy advertisement show.

One of the first anime I watched as a kid was Plauress Sanchiro, which featured a boy controlling a small fighter robot and taking on other contestants in tournaments. It was fun, with very original and interesting concepts for its time, plus it looked well animated. Many years later several other similar shows tried to do the same, read more
