Qwenthur came to the Alaskan military base to study Objects, the new weapons that have completely revolutionized war as we know it—battles are fought by soldiers controlling Objects far away from harm; however, when he starts to get close to Object pilot Milinda, will he discover the grim truth behind Heavy Objects?
Through the course of history, wars have been fought due to resources, idealistic disagreements, or as a way to ward off what some may believe to be a threat. Hand weapons such as swords and spears, guns, tanks, and a multitude of tactics have been used to fight off opponents and are used as killing methods so that each side may achieve their goal.
In the world of Heavy Object however, there's not really any insight on why there's a war is going on and the choice of weapons are objects called, well, Objects. Is this necessarily a bad thing? Not completely, as the work still
provides for a goofy and nice read.
The story is a classic case of the underdog hero saving the damsel in distress. As a whole, there's many comedic and goofy moments, so sorry to those who expected this to be a dramatic story of the consequences of war.
Kwenser is the usual naive white knight character of this tale who is in Alaska to study objects. Is there a specific reason? Well, the story does not give insight in that either so his real intentions remain unknown through the work. Then you have the Princess, the Damsel in question who acts odd and is not a traditional princess. Finally, there's Heivia, the regular perverted friend who decides to help out Kwenser. While the characters are nothing new to the scene, they are likable enough to keep reading.
While the series is some what fanservicy, the art for the characters is rather good and fits with the series. The design of the the Objects are rather simple though and not really complex.
If you just want to have a good silly time that does not have much background to the world, this short read will be able to accomplish that.
Whats more fun than huge tin cans filled the fuck up with weapons?
Another meche. I like the concept of the story, where in this new age of man nobody dies because of a major rule to let survivors leave, not to my surprise that it doesn't last long. Other than that the story is pretty straightforward and fun. (7)
Meh. Its pretty good for the most part. The only thing that brings down this value is horrid mechs that look like giant tin cans with machine guns sticking out of everywhere. Like if you placed a magnet in the middle of the United states and set
it to attract all guns in each state. Ya stupid right? Also Murica. (7)
What i majorly disliked about this manga is that i liked all the characters. Each one was interesting so it left me wanting more than what i got out of this manga. The only thing i disliked was that the main female becomes a princess who needs saving, and the main male becomes your typical knight in shining armor. (8)
Again, meh. It was... Ok? I liked it up until the horrid ending. The ending was exactly meant to open up the manga for a second season or continuation, but nope never happened. It was a cool story with a few comical moments. There were a few events that were bluntly obvious that they were going to happen, but then others that were unexpected. The "fun" although didn't last.

It was a pretty good idea and was executed fairly well. Characters were fun, and there were moments where i thought everything was going to go down the crapper. The manga was just not too inspiring. It could have been a lot better and LONGER. Because of a poor ending and semi fun concept, its 6/10 at best. Its an average manga that deserves no more praise than it does more weapons on its mechas.
