Aww I was hoping these would be real guns and not airsoft guns. Still looking forward to it, but slightly disappointed. Marksmanship is one of the few competitive sports that women are just as good as men at so this is really cool to see. Having it done with a CGDCT slant just makes it even better!

Definitely looking forward to it.

I read the first chapter of the manga this week and artwork really reminds me of New Game. Wonder if they'll get the same studio for it.

So we are getting an anime with a real rifle club, that's nice to see.

Not trying to be that debbie downer but I'm kinda done with these kinds of character designs. Like...there are subtle differences between cute girls in (X) club doing stuff but they don't all have to be doing this chasing their own tail thing. There are other ways of making an anime girl look cute besides seasonal anime aesthetic.

Looking forward to the way shooting gets utilized within the series.

What a refreshing concept. I expect nothing but an astounding depth of characterisation...
