These girls are aiming for your hearts with their moe bullets.
|Moe gunporn?! What is this, an alternate heaven for otakus? I saw this for the LULZ and for the lack of better term, it was not so bad. Sometimes crazy concepts actually work so let’s see how this goes with my tag partner, Foshy~|
|So, when I first heard about this moe themed anime where the girls are actually guns, it sounded so off the wall and random I wasn’t really sure. But if I have learned anything through watching regular seasons; you can’t always judge anime by their plots… I mean take Bento! I loved that series even though it had a crazy story. So, can Upotte!! become a fun series like Bento? Or will it fail to lock on and keep us entertained?
Plot follows the mysterious Sensei entering a brand new school where the girls are actually guns!
Funko-“Are you girls ready for hours of gun play?” Ichiroku-“I don’t think I have any more rounds left in me.”
Starting this gun filled story, we follow things from the perspective of FNC aka Funko at a local festival where she helps two kids win some prizes, but she has some trouble with the booth owner being a student from the Seishou Academy where they train the students in marksmanship to become professional… assault rifles. Before she could continu arguing, a strange man walks up to the booth giving it his best shot (at least from stance), but he fails horribly! Way to fail at being smooth…Funko leaves but the guy calls out to her revealing that he is the new mysterious teacher at her school. Also, it seems, our silver haired girl finds herself attracted to this new teacher thanks to the laws of anime of course.
Boy-“Wow, you are so cool!” Girl-“One day I want to grow up to become a real tank!”
Funko stands for Fun and company! Let the adventures begin.
Funko dreams of being used over and over…to kill people, you sick bastards!
While Funko introduces herself to the new teacher, he gets an eyeful of her pantsu? Because she wears a t-back aka thong… Yeah, I know crazy, right? Funko runs off after showing him around. The next day she joins Ichiroku, Eru and Shigu at the schools shooting range where the new teacher learns that the girls at this special school are really guns! Not just any guns but various assalt rifles like a M16A4, L85FA1, SG550 and FNC… However, sensei calls Funko T-back thong and she proceeds to unload tons of bullets in his direction due to extreme embarrassment. This lands him in the hospital for a few days. I think this teacher is related to Touma from Index…such misfortune!
Teacher-“OH MY GOD, I LIVED!” Funko-“Not for long, you are standing in front of the land mine club.”
Guns don’t kill people, however moe girls with guns will kill you.
So what do the girls decide to do next!? They create a DVD where they talk about themselves so the teacher can learn more about his new students just to avoid any more incidents. However, the girls realize the whole movie idea ends up being a waste of time, but at least they had fun right? Shortly after filming their project, Funko spots the teacher and the two of them have a short chat; until he makes the comment about her getting colds due to wearing thong… And Funko shoots him to hell again. That is three strikes Mr. Mysterious teacher! However, Funko actually gets suspended for three days too for putting the teacher back in the hospital.
Choose your favorite weapons very carefully.
Please stand by, America is searching for weapons of mass destruction…
Funko-“I swear I only meant to aim for his ass…not his face.”
Extra gun porn
Funko-“I can’t dodge these feelings forever…”
Be careful, Funko, your face might stay that way forever.
Upotte!! has some deep plot for you to enjoy.
AMERICA Y U SO CUTE?
Eru-“We are going to make so much money of the DVD extras…”
I was ready for the weirdness so I actually enjoyed the gun jokes and the sensei getting his ass kicked. I mean, dude, supposedly you have an awesome stance for shooting but losing at a kid’s stand after you behave so MANRY to take it all? Though, I wanted to smack the shop owner to kingdom come because he was totally unfair. Every time someone actually shot the damn thing, he would change the rule and up it some notches. That is so not cool bro! Running a shop and not ready to deliver the goods when someone actually wins?! It’s like taking other people’s money for nothing. Yeah, I hate such people in general but these are found everywhere from the ground level to even the fortune 500 companies.
The girls’ designs were almost identical except for the hairstyle but still Funko sure leaves a mark on you with her cute voices and hmphs! I mean her =3= face is so KAWAIIIII. Of course, it’s a bit weird that she fell for the teacher instantly but well, this is anime and a short OVA at that so I’ll not bat an eyelash. The thing that killed me are her jokes involved with the pipes getting jammed (the checkup at nurse’s office) to how she was just about to blow her hammer… Yeah, really fine there, Xebec with your female anatomy jokes. Though, at least there were no details about maintenance or else I would be facepalming forever.
Story-wise nothing really happened except for the sensei getting hit twice in a row like the perverted scum he has been. I mean, seriously man, joke about the pantsu about your students? What kind of a lecher teacher are you? I don’t blame Funko to go overboard though she did too much. Where else will you find students firing at their teachers? I think her boyfriend has a slow and painful death written somewhere because controlling her anger would be so tough. Also, let’s not forget Fujiko-sensei, who was pretty entertaining in planting vegetables in flowerbed… She sure likes eating everything. Anyways, overall, not a bad watch and because it was short, you can always check it out for fun.
For a series with another insane plotline, I actually had a lot of fun with the first episode of Upotte!! Even though I felt like I was pretty much watching a rehashed version of Softenni with assault rifles instead of tennis rackets. That said, this series is made by Xebec, which produced Softenni, toloveru and even Rinne no Lagrange and several other ecchi themed anime, but with any season of anime I think most fans have their own guilty pleasure list of things we watch even if the plot is lame. Anyway I really enjoyed watching this and it wasn’t even filled with any real fan service besides the breast grope scene with Ichiroku and Ero.
Speaking of Ichiroku for a moment, I think she is my favorite character. Yes, I know you are probably like duh Fosh because she is from America. I can’t really lie that is one of many selling points… I think she is from Florida because of that orange in her hair, but anyway she seems to be the hyperactive girl of the bunch and did you notice how super friendly she is towards the other girls? I guess they are saying America loves to be hands on with other counties? Wait they also might be poking fun at Americans? We clean up, but we are easily distracted! Then again this is Xebec here and I don’t think they are saying much through a character like Ichiroku.
Besides that, I freaking loved Funko! I guess it helps she is voiced by Iori Nomizu, who also voices Haruna from Kore wa zombie desu ka? And my favorite angeloid Nymph from Sora no Otoshimono, but yeah she really sounded quite cute as Funko. So, the girls are guns theme…just what does that mean exactly? Are they able to transform into actual guns? And are the other students the same or just the main characters? I wonder if they have any characters themed other types of guns. I know the main girls are based around assault rifles so what about explosives like c4 and grenades or rocket launchers…oh my god I want to see that character I can just picture some overweight guy; you know slow but he packs a mean punch.
Some students take their homework very serious…
