THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
And it ends. I will miss this series, at first i expected guns in moe version and nothing more related to guns than just names of the girls, but i got a very good series with lot of action, humour and even learned some about guns.
Liked it a whole lot, waiting eagerly for OAV.

I really loved this anime. I really hope that they make an other season. As far as this episode goes, I really liked the battle. Although, the ending of the battle was a little bit weird. :P

So I noticed while FNC was reloading her firearm that she still had bullets in her magazine..... I think that was a fail.

I also wanted to see AK-47's face, but she wore a mask. Damn you! :P

The Anime as a story could be better the Anime as information on gun know how was great i learned allot from it and was very detailed.
I liked all the explanations about the individual guns and it also made nice topics for discussions.
It's a shame there wasn't much detail about the eastern guns the but maybe there will be a second season that goes into detail to that.
And if there is a second season it needs more HK33!!

What?!?! Already ended?! ZZZ! Not a satisfying ending for me. I want that foxes to get owned and get totally broken that they will not be usable again! Will the TV Anime contain the same content as the ONA?

I will miss the Moeness :( Sig </3

Boy.... was that disappointing. I have to say this was the worst episode so far, and a bad way to end the series. =(

If S1 did well, I'm sure there will be a S2. My guess is they covered too many chapters in10 episodes, and have to stop for awhile. Anybody know what chapter the season covered up to?

Good season overall. I enjoyed the characters, the jokes, and the little plot they had at the end. I think the random funny type of episodes are more of Upotte's style. They're also the reason I kept watching. The gun information was nice to have, and actually taught us something.

The yuri element in this show however, was a little off-putting. It really wasn't needed, and for a comedic and cute show like this it felt quite off.

The characters overall were what made the show. Ichiroku and Eru were the best.

I give it a 7/10. The good is that it was funny, cute, and had great characters, even if they were a bit cliche at times. The bad was its terribly implemented yuri, which definitely wasn't needed.

I look forward to a second season.

Funko's explanation for why the teacher wasn't fatally hurt when he was hit by the gun fired bullets vs human fired bullets was a bit ridiculous. They were firing with live rounds. If a human gets hit with a live bullet, he/she will get hurt no matter who shot it. Just a nitpick there, otherwise it was a nice show to watch.

Weak ending, bad adaptation of base material for this ep, horrible animation at certain parts.
2/5 for episode, 7/10 overall.

I liked most of the ep, but the end of the battle(and show) was horrible.

But I enjoyed the show a lot overall, and would love to see more.

For an ONA, it was nice but overall, I give it 6/10. No real plot, and the ending was horrible. The fight between the two school in ep 9 and 10 was just confusing. I did not understand the point behind the gun fight at all.

I did enjoy the steam coming off of Funco's chest after she poured the water.

I loved the series. I hope theirs gonna be another season of it. The ending wasn't good but its the type of ending that would set up another season so im okay with it as long as I get another season of Upotte.

cant wait for the next season. liked this. very information and had cute characters to keep my interest high. i found it funny how they release 40+ roudns from a mag with probably a little more than half that capacity. unlimited bullet works :P o well. no matter to me. hope next season has more galil <3

Meh, 4/10. No plot, inconclusive ending, one-dimensional characters, and humour was mostly hit or miss.

Would have gotten a 3 if it weren't for the occasional inside jokes for gun fanatics that were legitimately funny.

3/10 for the series. Gun talk, and some ecchi. Overrated. I don't really know why I stuck with it this far. I understand why some Americans like it though.

It started off horrible, then got really interesting and fun and then by around ep 7 things just went downhill like crazy, and then the final episode things were actually getting interesting and that STUPID teacher showed up to ruin it all.

4/10. It had SOOOO much potential but that waste of life that was brought in to the school flushed it all down the drain.

So AK47 just walks off after all that?! This battle dragged on for too long, I lost interest in this episode's plot because it was bullets everywhere. Bad pacing.

When the girls said they're guns, I thought they were actually human but imitated the traits of their firearm. I never actually believed they were telling the truth until this final ep. I just assumed it was keeping to the moe formula but they actually addressed how the teacher (and frankly every one else) managed to survive 10 bullets to the chest.

Cute finisher about assault rifles unable to become battle rifles but the ending was all too abrupt. I hardly knew the characters except FNC. Wished it was longer, 6/10.

yeah i still have hopes for the manga i think this was just poor planning the fight wasnt even as good as the other episodes not even the ballon match its seems like they just wanted to end it rather than give a fanily. they should of just ended it with a fanseverice arch if they were going to do that.

I have to disagree with the no real plot part for, if an anime that originated from a comedy manga has a real plot, it fail as a comedy. It is like people are bashing K-on or Lucky Star for having no plot when it is a yonkoma. How does one find a plot in a yonkoma? And as for Upotte, just like a yonkoma, it is meant to be a comedy.

Probably the worst anime this season.


Overall score 2/10 (It's not 0/10 becuase the gunfights were decent)

I liked it. As an amateur gun nut, I enjoyed the gun puns and whatnot.

Now... The ending... Guh. I expected more, and that about the teacher not dying was just ridiculous. I was expecting him to pick Funco up and shoot the AK himself OR he revealing that he was, in fact, a weapon. Not that.

Anyway, some guys mentioned a tank ecchi anime, could someone tell me the name of that? Sounded VERY interesting to me. Only thing that could be better would be a fighter jet ecchi. I'd pay A LOT of moneys to see that.

Gurh... that ending really hurt the show for me. Not that it means much. I personally give the show a 5/10. If it weren't for the (slight) gun porn (refering to the actual guns, not the girls), I wouldn't have watched it

The QUALITY really fluctuated in this episode too.

The episode was great from the start to the end. I can't believe it ended already. All interesting shows have 10-13 episodes, this is ridiculous. Well anyway, sensei staying alive aside, it was good. Hope to see some more of this.

Well.....it's over. It wasn't a bad series. Sure it had it's flaws, but how much can you really expect from a series like this.

I actually liked the battle and fighting in the last episode. The AK's motivation was not really explained good enough. I kinda get what it is, but I feel it could of been done better. Sudden ending to the fight, and clearly not resolved. I thought the teacher was actually screwed there, and the explanation for why he's alive was such a cop-out. Another example of why I generally don't like when an anime has to end while the manga is still ongoing. I hope for a season 2 at some point and can't wait for the OVA.

I'm torn between giving this a 7/10 or a 8/10. I loved all the gun stuff and the fan service....but they are technically middle school girls. Not a lot of plot, but more than I expecting. It was a pretty funny series, yet it was awkwardly counter-balanced at times with all the gun battles. I really don't know yet. I'll have to think it over.

Either way, goodbye for now Upotte!! It's been fun.
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.

Overall 9/10 for me. Nice fanservice, nice gunformation, and the plot (though not overarcing) was nice, too. And at first I was confused why he wasn't dieing from the shots bun then I remembered... Guns don't kill people. PEOPLE kill people.
I want Rambo in a mecha-suit with a laser-chainsaw gun that fires nuclear warheads, fighting the love-child of Predator, Alien, a group of Bangladeshi terrorists, and Satan. (Actually that would be a pretty sick show) - StopDropAndBowl

Actually, Egoplant is right with some Americans. I'm an American gun enthusiast, and I love this anime series. Largely due to the fact that it involves girls that are personified firearms. What more could a redneck want? Talking about lubing up your weapon..... :D

Anyhow, I hope that you aren't offended by Egoplant's comment, because a large percentage of Americans do own firearms and love firearms. So if you are offended by the facts, then ROFL!!!! :D

I guess some people blame the gun for killing people.

Thank you very much for reminding me that. I never even thought of this phrase while I am watching it.

That's a good enough reason for me to keep the score 7/10. I would have lowered it to 5 or 6 if I hadn't seen or thought of this.

Unsatisfying ending, could have been better.
Season 2 with a decent conclusion will be appreciated.

It works for me.
I don't think I'm worried about the confusion of human and gun any more.
As a lesson I've learned many times since Katawa Shojo, it doesn't matter how someone looks or what they are, what matters is how they make you feel.

And everyone bashes the ending...why?
Is it so wrong to see the guns finally do what they do best?

And for all the times FNC has shot the teacher, you'd think she'd have known he wasn't going to die.
I go by many names, some call me Hoshimaru, others call me Jiro or Aosou-Kun.
I believe myself a force for good, a papercrafter by trade, and one who seeks love and beauty animesque.

The ending could've been better. But yeah, decent series overall, nice ecchi and fanservice in some episodes, action was really great, humor was so-so, but the series was very educational regarding guns. 6/10 for me.

Heh, Sako even came to help them in the end which was kinda unexpected, and sensei actually not getting killed by a bullet from a "gun" firing a gun was like...what?

Say ugh, will the TV series be the same as this ONA? i don't see this from some upcoming anime charts, so i'm confused O_O

9/10, loved this series.

I was shocked when I went to update my list and it said 10 episodes was the end. I don't remember this having an episode count.
