AniDB wrote:The newly hired homeroom teacher, Genkoku, at Seishou Academy discovers that the female middle school students all have excellent marksmanship skills... and happen to be anthropomorphised international assault rifles:

There is short-tempered Funko (FNC, manufactured in Belgium's Fabrique Nationale), the proud, accurate Shigu (SIG SG550, Switzerlands's SIG company), the pitiful Eru (L85A1, UK's Royal Small Arms Factory), and the foul-mouthed, but caring Ichiroku (M16A4, American company, Colt) and Funko's best friend.

Reading various quite ominous signs in the academy's hallways: "Keep chamber empty in the school building", "Do not fire in the hallway", and "Keep your safety on at all times!" Genkoku is starting to wonder, what he is getting himself into.

I admit, I chuckled with this. Nothing great but eh... somehow Xebec's light and short shows tend to be mildly enjoyable in the spare time for random lulz.

This show is basically Hetalia combined with Gunslinger Girl. Not sure if I'll watch this till the end, but I'll stick with it for now.

Whoever wrote this initially definitely did their homework. being in the military I did get some chuckles when they were talking about the different types of rifles and their personalities and in the beginning of the bath scene I was actually thinking that M16 should need a lot of CLP (lube) to clean, then she brings out a bottle of it.

Little disappointed they didn't have an AK-47, Russia needs some representation.

This is turning out quite interesting rather quick. Quite educational as well, too. Definitely looking forward to the next few eps :bear:

Was kinda bummed out this was only 10 eps too. Neat little series, was kinda hoping there'd be more m14 and her puns. If there ever were a second season I'd watch it.

And shigu rules :awesome:
