    Bizarre, but extremely entertaining
    Well, the idea is definitely a little bit out-there, a bunch of personified firearms going to school on how to be better firearms, but overall it's pretty well done and very entertaining. As a firearm nut myself, I found it very relieving that they actually got all of the history and specs right on all of the firearms featured in the show, and actually learned a thing or two about a couple of guns ...

    a bit above average.
    This anime is a very interesting concept but I feel as if there is alot lacking in story line and character development. I have watched all available episodes to date (up to episode 5) and The characters at least the human ones are lacking in background. The characters as far as the guns (girls) go isn't to bad but I don't see any clear future for the one human character of the story. We still ...

    Why? Why does this exist?
    I'll touch on the good things in this series first. The music is about average in the anime world, and the animation is pretty solid. The writers (can a show without a story even have writers?) have obviously done their homework on the various weapons featured here, and as an extreme gun nut myself, that's refreshing. In the couple of episodes I watched, I didn't feel the need to correct them ...

    Like actual guns, Nug!!, er, I mean, Upotte!! should be handled with caution.
    Japan has been known for pulling off some unusual stunts in their media and markets as a whole. A good bunch have been incredibly successful, while others... not so much. Upotte!!, on the other hand, takes the cake in this world of unusual things, not because of its premise, but its execution.

    So the premise can easily be summed up in ten words: "Upotte!! is a slice of life ...

    This the Full Review:

    What do you get when you take a concept like Hetalia and turn it into guns instead of countries and put them in school? You get the silly show known as, Upotte!!

    In terms of design, the idea of the show is a little out there, but something I can totally get behind. The characters are true to the weapons that they are based off and the show employs both action and ...

    Upotte!! will have you thinking
    This anime is basically educational, unless you try the accounts of naked school girls learning something.
    You will enjoy every minute with each episode. This has action, comedy, drama and everything inbetween that we expect in this type of anime.

    A Strange Idea, Executed Well
    A strange idea executed perfectly, I little funny at times, a little weird at others. Overall very well done, You didn't really get deep back-stories on any of the characters, but you do get decent development of them. By the end of the series you end up realizing that you've gotten to know the main characters fairly well.

    ...then it gets worse.
    I was worried at first that the "boobs-n-panties" high school girls were a bit cheap-shot. Add in the assault rifles and the only thing missing is glorified intraveinous drug use. I stayed with a couple episodes, thinking that the off-beat depiction of perky underage girls and deadly weapons might indicate other off-the-wall observations. What developed was an excuse to enter into xenophobic ...

    Accurate and Entertaining
    Its almost a cross between Soul Eater and Hetalia. As a gun owner and firearms enthusiast i found their facts and references to be up to 99% accurate with only a few tiny misquotes; but still very great research.

    I personally don't care much for subbed anime's but i put that aside for this because i absolutely love it. Its purely entertaining, If you are looking for a deep seated story with ...
