Upotte!!

It’s real, it’s actually real. I thought, when I first read about it, that it was just a mess-up in the plot translation, but it’s actually about girls and guns, my god. The comedy is plain, the ecchi is plain and the story is pretty plain too, and the most frightening of all; I enjoyed it.

The artwork is done really well, so no complaints about that. I do have one thing to add though; plainness. This show is full of it. I think that their new sensei looks so freakin’ plain. It feels like I’ve seen him a thousand times already. That’s off-putting.

The story makes up for that, but only a little bit though. It’s a story about guns and girls. Normally a sexy combination, but this time the girls supposedly are the guns. I know it sounds really strange, and you really do need a big imagination with this one, but I think it might work. It’s an interesting piece, but by no means one of the better ones.

I suppose recommending this would be a little bit difficult. I suppose personal preference really is key with this one. I for one enjoy watching ecchi comedies, so it comes as no surprise that I enjoyed the first episode to some extent. However, I am supposed to be biased about my recommendations. I think this anime has some potential, but I wouldn’t recommend it to those who enjoy something with a more serious story. If you’re okay with just a laugh then this might be for you.

Plot Summary: 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?

    Just been reading Upotte manga.
    I am talking about in terms of mass production, how many countries adopted it (whether their own version or licenced copy, such as american M16=canadian C7, russian AK47=Israelis Galil, so on), and its history.
    I’m not talking about special forces weapons like FN SCARS.
