Synopsis

Ao Gennai is a completely average first-year high school student—that is, until a mysterious package is delivered to her home one day. Inside she finds Gourai, a tiny humanoid robot capable of movement and combat known as a Frame Arms Girl. Gourai is the first of her kind, possessing an extremely advanced AI that allows her to form a personality, learn, and grow, much like the human mind.

Following Gourai's activation, Ao is thrust headfirst into the world of Frame Arms Girls as more and more of the intelligent robots are delivered straight to her front door. With a rather hefty cash incentive pushing her forward, Ao is committed to collecting as much data about the Frame Arms Girls and their combat as possible, all while they learn what it means to be human.

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

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

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

Frame Arms Girl - a trendy advertising series, wrapped in a nice slice of life mecha mix that tries in a very traditional way to arouse the desire of the audience to buy these cute tiny model girls.

Story: thin and a pretext to show the little girls with heavy armament (4/10)
In a near and peaceful future, teenage girl Ao accidentally receives a Frame Arms Girl (Gourai). This is the prelude to a simple slice of life mecha mix with a bunch of tiny cute AS (=artificial self). In other words, we get to accompany a small group of cute android girls in heavy armor on read more
