Synopsis

After World War III decimated the world's population and rendered large amounts of land uninhabitable, various private military contractors began using combat androids—also known as "T-Dolls"—to maintain peace in unstable countries. While they are physically superior to flesh-and-blood fighters, T-Dolls are incapable of formulating complex plans and thus require a human commander to issue orders.

Sangvis Ferri was an industry-leading T-Doll manufacturer until they attempted to install a specialized T-Doll as the company's sole commander—resulting in the immediate deaths of everyone at that facility. Seizing control of Sangvis factories, the rogue AI declared war on the remnants of mankind. Now facing a hostile robot invasion, Griffin & Kryuger is the only paramilitary organization strong enough to withstand confrontation and halt their destructive advances.

Investigating the events related to Sangvis Ferri's aggression, the elite task force "Team Anti-Rain" searches for highly confidential information in an abandoned warehouse, but they are shortly ambushed. Hoping to safeguard their findings, the group temporarily disbands and each Doll goes into hiding. Meanwhile, the lazy but gifted Gentiane is hired by Griffin as a rookie commander and given her critical first mission—track down Team Anti-Rain and recover the classified data before Sangvis Ferri can.

I'll be honest, I never expect much from anime that is a game adaptation. Sadly, once again my scepticism was totally justified. So what do we have on our hands?
Story. To be put bluntly Girls Frontline, the source game, can be divided in two parts in terms of plot: horribly boring, dull and uncreative start and OH BOY WOW second part. And while it is to be expected, still going for the story from the start in a 12 episode show is a bad call - the whole story is so dull it makes me yawn and the season ends before the actually good part ...

As a massive fan of the mobile game this show is worse than disappointing; it is utterly abysmal.

Story-wise, the anime is an adaptation of the early chapters, of which the story isn't good, yet they managed to make the general writing and the pacing somehow even worse. The game's biggest strength is the lack of exposition dumps and that is just the opposite with this show. It dumbs down characters to explain (poorly thought out) tactics.

The opening and the ending are the only positive things about the show, and maybe the art style that is heavily inspired by Gunslinger Girl. The animation itself is average ...

Mixed Feelings
Game adaptations work for various ways, but it's main objective would always get you to try out the game, which is its biggest selling point. And it's by no small means that MICA Team's KanColle-inspired crew of anthropomorphized firearm moe waifus is a small franchise, OH NO. Girls' Frontline is a massively popular mobage RPG that's insanely loved by its fans ever since its release in China in 2016, that year after year, expanded to more territories, and gradually released to English and Japanese players in 2018 as Dolls' Frontline due to trademark constraints. So, think of this as the equivalent to Yostar's Azur Lane ...
