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.

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 their adventure forays. We learn ...

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
