This series was originally concieved of by Masamune Shirow. Who apparently realized his own art style would not be a good fit for it and then handed it over to Kōshi Rikudō.

In otherwords this is a combo of Ghost in the Shell and Excel Saga

Genre would be: Yuri Action Comedy

Episode 1

Looks can be misleading as Nene is a full-body cyborg, not a robot. Clarion is pretty cute, but this full-body doesn't want anybody touching her ears. But just as they arrive on the island they are attacked by a bunch of robots controlled by cosplayers. Nene finds out that she's and Adepter and is quite skilled with the gun, but she has a lot to learn. That was unexpectedly funny seeing that Masamune Shirow isn't exactly known for that.

Kind of lends a whole new meaning to "opening Pandora's box"....

For referance, these are some of Shirow's original designs for this series before he handed it off to Rikudo.
The humans here are Uzal-san and the minions who betrayed her. The big ball Mecha is something we'll see episode 2



The anime has covered 2 chapters of the manga so far

Dunno about this one... I think it's supposed to be comedic, but it's not very funny. Nor is it serious enough to be a serious show.

I think it's essentially a Magic Girl show, only instead of magic it's science.

It even has an animal mascot...sort of
It's name is Buer and according to myth he looks like this


in the series he looks...close to that.....kind of (not really) cuter version of that.

Episode 1

Futuristic android lolis with guns, and yuri undertones.

I'm a sucker for the cat ears, so I think I'll stick with it for now.

Kind of cute and fun but also all sorts of stupid. I'll be back next week for more but I'm not sold on this being one I'll stick with for the whole season (or, if I do, I can't see it being near the top of the charts).

They've managed to make yuri funny. Not sure there's much depth, but if they stick to comedy they won't need it.

Episode 1: Adepter

Yuri robots was surprisingly entertaining. Watched it last night, thought I posted something already but I guess I didn't. Gives a whole new meaning to opening (or touching ) Pandora's Box.

Not much to the story yet but introducing that adepter concept and some characters. Think its more of a show that won;t take itself too seriously which isn't bad.

Animation is kind of meh, but I do like it when Clarion goes straight 2D white whenever Nene touches her or when someone mentions her ears.

Anyways Yay! Yuri robots

If only the storytelling was good as the weapons...

The comedy is a miss while I didn't get most of the jokes. It looks like the show is taking on a serious approach near the end there though but I don't have high hopes for it.
