In the distant future, the nature of war has changed. "Objects"—massive, spherical tanks impermeable to standard weaponry and armed with destructive firepower—rule the battlefield; their very deployment ensures victory, rendering traditional armies useless. However, this new method of warfare is about to be turned on its head.

Qwenthur Barbotage, a student studying Object Design, and Havia Winchell, a radar analyst of noble birth, serve in the Legitimate Kingdom's 37th Mobile Maintenance Battalion, tasked with supporting the Baby Magnum, one of the nation's Objects. Unfortunately, a battle gone awry places the duo in a precarious situation: mere infantry stand face-to-face against the unfathomable might of an enemy Object. As they scramble to save themselves and their fellow soldiers, a glimmer of hope shines through, and the world's perception of Objects is changed forever.

Heavy Object follows these two soldiers alongside Milinda Brantini, the Baby Magnum's pilot, and their commanding officer Frolaytia Capistrano as the unit treks all over the globe to fight battle after battle. Facing one impossible situation after another, they must summon all their wit and courage to overcome the insurmountable foes that are Objects.

Several characters from Heavy Object are slated to appear in the sequel to the arcade fighting game Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax.

Fun and underrated

If you watch expecting a big war anime you're gonna be disapointed, its good but not something that will change your life or make you fall in love with it
Overall, its good, animation are very well made and consistent, these big ass machines really look scary and mix well fantasy with something that could happen in real life
The characters are fun too, so thats good

Overall, its good as long as you're able to relax and enjoy some fun, trying to get a full on serious war anime out of this one will just make you mad and unable to enjoy the show

Ever heard of the phrase "one-trick pony"? If you haven't, then the best description is that it is a person or thing that can do one thing really well but is average at best in almost every other respect. This is a pretty good way to describe "Heavy Object", a military-mecha anime based on light novels written by "A Certain Magical Index" creator Kazuma Kamachi. In this case, its one trick is its "David vs. Goliath" battles, featuring mere foot soldiers taking down giant superweapons with nothing but brains and whatever tools they have at their disposal, allowing the series to be very entertaining in ...

Heavy Object is a story about these war machines called Objects and each has a pilot. However, the story doesn't focus on them. Instead it focuses on three other characters: a regular male soldier, a noble male soldier and their female commander. The commander, like every other female character besides an old woman, only exist because of fan service. Boobs, legs, asses. Everyone knows that's all an anime girl is for, right? As if this wasn't enough, there's loads of sexist remarks and jokes that I don't appreciate one bit. Even their own pilot is just fanservice.

Moving on, these 2 soldiers get so many ...
