Rifle-shooting sports are competitive activities testing accuracy and precision using a rifle. In Japan, carrying firearms is prohibited, so most of the participants are members of the defense force. When the use of rifles using a light beam instead of real bullets as ammunition became common, rifle-shooting competitions became accessible to the younger population, giving way to school contests.
First-year high school student and marksmanship enthusiast Hikari Kokura has just transferred to Chidori High School. She tries to join the club of her choice, but finds out that the club no longer exists due to the low popularity of the sport. Distraught, she tries to restore the club and somehow manages to recruit three other members: her childhood friend Izumi Shibusawa, the half-Russian Erika Meinohama, and the stoic Yukio Igarashi.
This marks the beginning of the Chidori Rifle-Shooting Club, who have only one goal—to compete on the national stage!
Surprised this has as low rating as it does. Sure, it comes down to personal enjoyment. But this show is rather pleasant and fun. I suppose seeing it done so many times. It's gonna get stale. But I didn't think so here, as I enjoyed it.
We're introduced into four main characters. Each with different personalities whom revive a recently disbanded shooting club and form friendships through the shooting club. Along with having goals for said club.
There are a few reasons why I'm really enjoying this anime. The characters are nice, as actual likeable characters are needed for an anime to be good going forward. As
I'm not unsure of any of the cast so far. From how cute the air head maid can be, to how serious another character can be. They're all great. I couldn't really pick a favourite between them, they're all good characters in their own right.
The art and sound is great too. Very pleasing on the eyes and the ears.
While the pacing can be a little questionable at times, overall it's still a typical fun show of cute girls doing cute things and being part of a club. Despite it being done a ton, it's still worth the watch in my book.
Welcome to my review of Rifle Is Beautiful. This review has minor spoilers in it!
This is a grand beautiful tale about cute girls doing cute things! Full of wonderful pure lesbians that love each other and want to have fun together! The story may not be complex in the manner,It's rather about the cute girls and spending their time together!Its heartwarming a lot of humorous aspects and some lewd situations.Its light warm and cute.Like a CGDCT should be ,And it also drives strong at the Yuri!! The sport itself gets some time! But as i said its more about the girls!
Hikari and her
partner Izumi have been together for a long time and in her past done some shooting with laser rifle. And strive to start a shooting club in her school only for females!! Her girlfriend Izumi supports her and helps out in every way she can!! And as always in does CGDCT more females will join their club!! Like Erika that are very skilled and have done some competition with Hikari before, In her younger years. And together they wanna try to qualify to the national! And who knows they may even reach the Olympics!!!
Overall I like the story and it have the CGDCT essence in it!
The animation is great! Love the warm vibrant colours!! And the appealing females just melts my heart!! Even the CGI are really good!! In general the animation holds an exceptional high standard
The characters are just the best. Well behaved easy-going girls.Very warm interesting and charming females., Two of the top shooters Erika and Akira are cousins but with close family's they grow up together and are more like sisters.And have some rivalry between them but more sister rivalry than fierce competition.We also have the lovely teacher!! Who wants to have a lesbian harem with all my girls!! She is a doll and putting a big smile on my face.And she cares a lot!! She is always there for her students and do her best to help them!! Izumi may not be one of the top shooters. But she try's real hard and always hangs in there. And learn how important her support is for the other girls! And with some training she have a good chance and the will to improving herself!! The whole anime is full of lovable girls! We also have some females that take it a bit more serious. But they are not over the top and give some variation.This type of anime is supposed to make the viewer feel comfortable and relaxed. And my girls are doing a momentum job and succeeded at every levels . So overall the characters are a huge hit!!
We have some lighter character development.My girls better themselves with some training!! But mostly they open up more towards each other!! Strengthen their relationship and become a much tighter group. Understanding and accepting each others personality!Rather then have a strong individual growth. They grow and become stronger as a team!!
With all this Yuri going on I just love this anime!! We have girls proposing on multiple occasions!! They clearly says they want to married each other!! And all this talk about lesbian weddings is so delicious for a Yuri lover like me!! The main girls my two favourites also states they want to have a lesbian wedding and get married in the future!! It's so cute and warm, Yuri are something holy for me and noting speaks more to my soul!!!
And the white lily flower have been in picture!! Which is a clear statement this is a media with lesbian females.All the way back to the 70s when the first lesbian kiss was portrayed in a manga, They painted lily's all over that kiss.After that it become common practice to use the white lily or the white lily with a blue overtone in media that have lesbians in them, and the Yuri genre was born!! Lily literally means Yuri in Japanese and are the strongest symbol for this wonderful kind of media!!
And this is NOT a sport anime in that manner.The sport is just a tiny speck and are not even close of being the main driving force It's not even tagged sport by that reason.To be a sport anime, The sport itself must be in focus and the most important aspect,friendship and everything else should come after the sport.Here its the opposite. The girls themselves even often says we want to have ""FUN"" noting more.We will try our best but the result is not that important.They much rather wants to be friends or lovers than rivals. The shooting is only there to give them something to do like a hobby, as many other CGDCT shows have , It's a mere springboard to elevate the girls. But its still about them and their relationships rather than being successful in a sport!! If you want to watch a real sport anime please do so, But this is not it!!
And as always when I do a review on an anime that haven't finished airing, Its based on the episode that are out now!! If this anime in the future going to include males or other impure elements that I don't accept in my Yuri's! It's going to be judge accordingly!! But for now all is good in Yuri paradise!!
So, Do you like CGDCT and Yuri? And heartwarming anime with very mellow type of competition and rivalry.Where the girls rather have fun then take things to serious? If this is to your liking's I think you will enjoy this as much as I do!!!
I dedicate this review to my lovely lesbian angel Hikari!! That never backs down on her believes that is most important to have fun together with her friends!!!
Yes, it is Cute Girls Doing Cute Things but with a sport category addition in it. Also it's a pun,
Rifle Is Beautiful.
Life Is Beautiful.
Though i can't relate about the beam rifle by any mean and anyway since i only ever used a handgun in past when trying myself at shooting range a couple of times, shooting any standing target is sport indeed. (Though moving target will be more fun)
A little info that the main idea of this anime is about Beam Rifle sport, it's not kind of rifle that fire projectile. Think of it as firing invisible laser... or light to the target. If
expect the loud bang, cuw cuw, shot fire, then you will kind of disappointed.
As for the story, characters, and so on... eh...
It's a sport anime... i type again, It's a SPORT ANIME.
expect rivalry, aiming to the top thing (though this one not so much), a very talented character even though she goofed of (MC or the Main Lead character of course), self inferiority and...
oh yes, little comedy and some good moment for keeping your interest still in check.
Also... i swear to god, i prayed so hard that in modern anime now days that one day... one day, i will see a main lead character without peculiar baited hair ornament or goddamn big ribbon on his/her head.
Honestly when I saw this series current score of 5.68 I was scared to try this anime, I wanted to try it out and see for myself at the very least and that’s what I did. I thought that the reason this series is at its current score was because of something big like the animation is horrible, the story is awful, or the characters are boring or something big enough for this series to get a low score but honestly everything from animation to sound is good, the story is subjective to each person because it’s a CGDCTs kind of anime but honestly for
anyone who loves that genre this anime is for you.
Story: (7) Honestly the story is nothing special but I think that you don’t need a special plot in order to make a good series. It’s simple, Hikari (the main characters) main goal is to head to the Olympics for professional shooting, so she reopens the Rifle Shooting Club with 3 other girls (each of which had experience in shooting and regularly goes to competitions) and they just have fun. Simple but well done
Art: (8) Surprisingly the animation is pretty good, whenever the girls are shooting their rifles they have the girls in regular animation style while the gun itself is CGI, I’ve seen this style of animating done in the anime Given where they have the characters is regualr animation while their instruments are in CGI, it’s weird but honestly from both of these anime’s the blend of 2d animation and CGI is awesome and though it’s a bit weird at times it looks pretty good. The rest of the anime is in simple 2d but even then it’s nice vibrant colors of both the characters and the backgrounds always looks good and always makes me glued to the screen
Characters (7) The characters are not to write home about but at the very least they are entertaining and fun and they surprisingly make me laugh with their stupid jokes, puns, and derp faces (especially Hikari’s). I also like to point out on is how quickly these girls become friends in episode one astonishes me because they literally become best friends by the end of the first episode and it’s great because usually it takes like a couple of episodes before the girls even become apart of the same club in these kinds of anime’s
