Wow, this went from epic fanservice to serious in no time flat. Why does it have to end when it's actually getting a plot now? I'm really interested.
I don't accept random friend requests, but feel free to PM me if you want to talk about something i've posted or talk about some anime/manga that i've seen.

It is an ONA. And it is only 10 episodes.


Pfffft! Really? Well that sucks, I really liked this anime. I was looking forward to 3 more episodes. That blows, I'm kinda sad atm. :P I really hope that they make an other season.

We mainly saw AR's Battle riffles and Sub machine-guns so from there my conclusion and since the taiga 12 was based on the AK series i thought you might have mistaken it for a Assault riffle.
Basically the guns i am waiting for are the Type 95 and the AN94 but not looking at your spoiler just letting myself get surprised.

Hmmmmm, I guess I can understand where you are coming from. But, I'm a huge firearm enthusiast who is also a fictional firearm concept artist. So, I wouldn't make a silly mistake like that. :D

I know that Saiga 12K is going to show up this season (hopefully if it's more than 10 episodes :sadface:), because I was looking at official character art on Upotte!!'s main website. That's why I said I was looking forward to seeing her, because I knew that they were planning on introducing her.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing the eastern bloc weapons. On a sidenote, I think it would be awesome if they introduced the HK G36 and it's many variants.

I still don't understand why this anime is getting to many thumbs down. I don't understand why people think girls and guns don't mix. Did they want some huge masculine male with a big slong holding his gun while naked? I'm sorry but if you don't like hott girls holding guns or being guns for that matter, you are in fact a homosexual. I'd much rather want my firearm to be a girl if it's personified rather than a man.

I'm really raging that eastern girls are antagonists here. Especially annoying was than AK said "this western guys care about their wounded friends unlike us". What the hell? You're saying that the slavic people don't care about our brothers-in-arms during battle?!

While it’s obvious that AK-74 said that to sound coldhearted, it is actually tactically sound. Ichihachi and Galil made the mistake of trying to look after their comrades and got themselves shot in the process. They should have ignored what happened to HK33 and fought on. You only look after casualties after the engagement is over or after you have gained enough fire superiority to allow you to bring your casualties to cover. If they would have fought they might have been able to get themselves out of that mess, even though it would have been difficult to help HK33 because she fell in the water.

That's not true. You just don't BLINDLY go and try to rescue your wounded. If you know the general direction that the enemy is firing from, which they should have, considering the impact of the bullet caused HK33E to fall backwards into the river, one of them should have provided suppressing fire for the other one to dive into the river and save her.

You don't leave your wounded to bleed out, since sometimes a couple minutes can mean the difference between life and death. Most of the time, such as during an ambush (which was the case here), it is impossible to quickly gain the upper hand tactically and force the enemy to retreat, so the only thing you can do is get your wounded out of the line of fire where they can be treated by a medic.

Anyways, why the E in HK33? E stands for export, which implies that she isn't from the same country as her sister G3A3.

@ Eastern Bloc weapons picture:

Lolwut, why is Type 88 (who is clearly a QBZ-95) part of the group? China was never part of the Eastern Bloc, as by 1960 Soviet-Chinese relations were failing due to the Sino-Soviet split. Also, as its name suggests, the QBZ-95 began production in 1995, 4 years after the fall of the Soviet Union.

And HK32 is there because it was a experimental variant of the G3 chambered in the Soviet 7.62 x 39 mm round. It wasn't actually used, though.

Woah, completely different tone from the previous cheerful ep.

The gang from the East really made the show something else by blowing up the city. What are they doing! They're not in some specialised training area like at the school. I didn't realise Upotte is only 10 episodes long until now, I wish it was 12.

Also, terrible censoring.

Hm, you're right. Didn't even consider it, since only like 2000 were ever built.

That fanservice.

Look's like things are getting serious, and only one more episode. Too lazy to go into detail about the episode.

The start was more fan service than something else but the second pare sure took the old concept back, lets see what the last episode has to offer!
