Synopsis

The Walpurgis Royal Academy of Machinart was founded alongside the development of "Machinart," machine magic capable of giving life and intelligence to mechanical dolls subsequently called as "automaton." Its aim: train skilled puppeteers to control the automatons, as militaries across the globe have begun incorporating Machinart into their armies.

After miserably failing the academy's entrance exams, Raishin Akabane and his humanoid automaton Yaya must defeat one of the top one hundred students to earn the right to take part in the Evening Party, a fight for supremacy between puppeteers using their automatons. The last one standing is bestowed the title of "Wiseman" and granted access to the powerful forbidden arts.

Thus, Raishin challenges Charlotte Belew and her automaton Sigmund to a duel, but before they even begin, Sigmund is attacked by other students. After saving his opponents from their assaulters, Raishin cancels the duel but is forced to search for a new way to gain access to the Party. Driven by the tragedies of his past, Raishin fights alongside Yaya to rise to the top and claim the title of Wiseman.

Despite my rating, I thoroughly enjoyed this show and would recommend it if you're looking for an easy to watch action, ecchi similar to "black bullet", however, If you're looking for a solid story this is not the show for you. The writer seemed to go off in several directions without ever firmly creating a solid story and I have seen several people complain about this, dropping the show mid way through. It also feels as if the author wanted to add more cute girls to the harem, imagined them, but then realised he needed some plot in order to in fit them in, letting ...

Unbreakable Machine Doll is a perfectly decent anime. The characters are likable and the story is decent. However, it falls far short of being a great work for the medium. I went into this with high expectations, as this is a Lerche anime and Lerche is my favorite studio. Their animation is always gorgeous and they are responsible for some of my favorite series ever made. However, Unbreakable Machine Doll does not feel up to par with their other series.

First of all, the animation. Lerche usually has some of the best animation in the industry. However, Unbreakable Machine ...

Well, yeah. The plauge of the "stupidly naive and dense moral-compass protagonist" trope. I mean, when I see this archetype, I already know, I'll feel bad for all of the people around the MC, because they'll suffer a lot while they try to protect the dense protagonist from his own stupidity. I really don't get it why do people glorify recklessness. Not to mention the complete ignorance of the safety of the loved ones. Sadly, if I see these absolutely avoidable situations, I cannot hate the "bad guys", I can only blame the MC for his rush, stuipd, and stubborn decisions. What makes this even ...
