Synopsis

Chise is an ordinary schoolgirl: small, frail, and not particularly intelligent. Her greatest joy is her budding romance with her classmate and childhood friend, Shuuji. They both live in a small military town in Hokkaido, where high schoolers have few concerns other than who is dating whom and complaining about the steep climb up "Hell Hill" every day before school.

One day, Shuuji and his friends make a trip to Sapporo to buy gifts for their girlfriends. A massive air raid on Sapporo that day kills thousands, including one of Shuuji's friends, and signals the beginning of a war. Fleeing from the carnage, Shuuji spots Chise, though now she has steel wings and a massive gun where her right arm should be. Against her will, she has been transformed into the ultimate cyborg weapon, capable of leveling entire cities.

As the war rages closer and closer to their hometown, Chise and Shuuji's relationship is strained by her transformation, and they are left to wonder whether she is even still human.

It's been 20 years since "The Last Love Song on This Little Planet" aired. It's dated and yet not. Surely the Manga style art may throw some people off and the premise of a "Girl Weapon" is a bit silly, but if you can, I recommend giving this a watch. The Japanese are good at digging around in the human soul and pulling out the core of what it means to be human. Our weaknesses and strengths. The anime is about Love and War and with all that is going on in today's world maybe the anime is now more timely than ever. Oh, ...

Mixed Feelings
Saikano is extremely crude: the animation quality ranges from decent to subpar, character animations are dangerously close to looking like rag dolls, and many of the critical story elements are merely glossed over or completely unexplained.

Only a few voice actors are worth their salt: Orikasa Fumiko's Chise and Miki Shinichirou's Tetsu are the ones pushing their own arcs and at the very least pull their own weight.
Shuji, on the other hand, oh boy. Ishimoda Shirou is the voice behind Shuji, and his voice acting was, without a doubt, the worst I'd ever heard from anime. Shuji's angry tone, sad tone, happy tone, tired tone, gasping-for-breath ...

This is by far the worst anime I've ever seen. I don't usually write reviews but I'm making a special exception for this dreadful show. absolutely nothing is explained, nothing is resolved, stuff just kind of happens for no reason, they want you to just eat up all this garbage and I'd be willing to if there were characters or something to cling onto and enjoy through this mad libed story. moments seem to only exist to try to make you feel sad when they don't make you feel the least bit sad because everyone in the show is also a terrible human being who ...
