Upotte!! is a new spring title by Xebec and to some it up it's cute guns doing cute things! We like cute things don't we? Anyways the main characters are (if you are a gun nut or just played too many COD games you would know and love them already): FNC, M16A4, L85A1, SG550...all personified by cute girls of course.



Plot Synopsis:
A teacher is looking for a school by the name of Seishou Academy, as he is a new transfer teacher for that school. Seishou Academy is known for having students with excellent marksmanship. However, he gets lost along the way and decides to look for someone who knows where the school is at a summer festival.

He encounters a girl at a shooting range and finds her marksmanship skills to be professional. The girl tells the new teacher that she is an assault rifle, not a student. Her name is FNC and is an assault rifle of Seishou Academy.

The new teacher attends school the next day to find students, including FNC, practicing shooting M16s and realizes that he has come to an unbelievable school. How will his experience be at Seishou Academy?

Personal Impressions:
Oh God this show is hilarious. Prime example of fan service done right (M-My hammer is about to fire... ), I was laughing so hard that I almost cried at a couple of scenes. It would help a bit if you at least know a little about firearms but even not don'y fret, they explain a lot of the jokes like M16 lacking a full-auto function. Also yes the L85A1 did jam a lot and is generally considered a terrible rifle until they improve it to the A2 currently in service with the UK armed forces.

This reminds me of Aria the Scarlet Ammo from last Spring Season for some reason. Hmm, I "might" watch this if I hear good comments on it but so far, it looks like a pure comedy

Low priority, probably won`t have it finished when it finishes.
Good-ish first impressions.

I'm actually kinda disappointed. I'm a hard core gun nut and am usually attracted to anime that make inanimate objects like humans. but...

It's going into the sexual and the main characters are middle schoolers. bit of a turn off. Still I'll wait and see if 'Faru' makes enough appearances to keep me coming back. she's 'standard' FAL rather than a C1 and her name is not 'foehammer' still.. sentimental reasons from my brief time as a soldier.

It's like Hetalia, only with a moe spin. Its funny that the firing range manager reminded me of R. Lee Ermey from Full Metal Jacket. I bet there will plenty of gun jokes and fan service throughout the series. So far its pretty funny, I wonder if the teacher will get shot at every ep?

i personally enjoyed it on a huge guilty pleasure level... I can't bring myself to hate the show but some major reviews for magazines/blogs are spotting off their typical "if there was a god this show wouldn't exist" etc...thank you twitter.

It really is weirdly charming. I'm more interested in watching this than some of the dramas they're showing.

I think people are just embarassed, even as anime fans, to like something with that premise and all those terrible sex puns.

The thing is something can be utterly stupid and still super fun because it's embarassing and stupid.

It's like Evil Dead, except with gun girls instead of zombies.

This show is a lot like American Pie in that you (might) hate it, but the stupidity factor will make you laugh at the occaisional funny part.

Note: If you didnt find American Pie funny at the stupid-level, then I wasn't including you in my use of "you".

That just sounds wrong, which is why I laughed.

I don't think words can even begin to truly describe this show. I think it does further prove the theory that Japan can successfully make anything cute or moe though. As wrong as this anime can be at times I think I'll keep watching as its pretty funny as well.
