Well, I think how good this will turn out is how clever the suggestive humor is and how the characters interact. If they do a good job with these, I think it will turn out fine. As I commented before, it's cute, but that's about all it has going for it at the moment. Going to have to see another episode to see what kind of backbone this will have. Regardless, I'll continue to watch as I need some fluffy series in my viewing schedule.

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.


Actually, if they're going by the manga she is an inch pattern FAL, L1A1 / C1 since it mentions she lacks full auto capability in the first volume.

OT: I haven't gotten around to watching it yet, but I love slice of life, moé, firearms, and comedy, so this is kind of a perfect storm for me. Even if it turns out bad, I'll still probably love it.

Honestly me too. I just found FNCs reactions to her teacher little over the top and offputting. the rest of it is amusing so far.

as for Faru, COOL now if only she had an 'arctic' demountable trigger guard. My Master Corporal's statements about 'this is the only woman you guys will ever know during training' (paraphrased) might seem more comforting.

What did I just watch?

Ok, it was pretty funny, but also a little... well, only Japan can make a show like this.

I found one comment by FNC very funny. It was translated as "I'm not violent", but the Japanese word is "ranbou", which is where we got Rambo from.

Yep this is definitely the most enjoyable show of the season (I would say best show but F/0 is a very strong contender), I was smiling pretty much the whole way through the second episode. The jokes, service and story are all fresh and innovative and this is just such as blast to watch.

Anyway Ep 2, seems like they ran the sex jokes dry last ep and turn into semi-serious mode. It's one of those "going full on special forces in a school" setting that every kid has dreamed about. The three older girls (G3, FAL and M14) are explored a bit further here and I'm loving the cast so far. Lol poor L85A1 she's so hopelessly bad...

BRB I gotta go play CS source again...

I'm starting to like that british girl/gun a bit. She's the silent ditzy type and that's so funny to me.

This show is pretty funny. I wonder what the climax of the season entails.

Watching Ep 1 had me on edge, I didnt think I would be finishing the season.
It gave me the wrong impression... but after watching ep2 I was laughing my ass off, totally love this.
Anime -like guns- comes in many shapes and sizes, what a fun way to show off a crazy comedy.
as long as they can keep the pace, it will hold my attention for the rest of the season. Looking forward to it ^^

Ep 2 was much better. It was funny, interesting, and it didn't have the creep factor of ep 1. I like how they are introducing the technical details in fun ways. It's definitely a good way to learn about guns. :)

BTW, the ED is really growing on me.

Its a cool anime, I like the concept, it reminds me of Hetalia. Though I'd like to see a bigger cast, or maybe a canon of other guns, such as the AK 47, 40 Cal, and Desert eagles. It really makes me wonder what they'd look like.

The only set back to this is the whole age thing, I Wish instead of middle school, they could have been placed in H.S. That way I wouldn't feel so awkward when ever sexual puns are made lol.

Gotta love the onee-sama's.

Also their age is related to the gun caliber. Battle rifles are all in high school due to their larger caliber. Assault rifles (like the 4 main girls) are in middle school and lower caliber weapons like the briefly shown P-90 are in elementary school. Think they explained this in the show.

This was a good observation, I lol'd seriously. If I recall correctly, their magazines are supposedly their mouth? Remember he read a poster that said "keep your magazine lips safe".

Haha, and the nurse told her to keep her hammer clean and operational. HAHAHAH

I like it that FAL is cool. She deserves to be. It's a kickass rifle. Shame my country gave it up for a domestically made M16 varient.
