    I MISS MY CHEERLEADING AND SCHOOL OUTFIT FROM LONG AGO. NOW CUTE CHARACTERS ARE WEARING THEM TOO.

    I AM A WRINKLY FAT OVERWEIGHT WOMAN WITH FLAP JACK ARMS AND A SEVERE CASE OF UNDERARM PIT HAIR.

    MY FACE IS ALSO UGLY AND FILLED WITH WRINKLES AND BALDNESS.

    Damnit Japan, stop making shitty anime! Go back to the 80s and 90s where everything didn’t revolve around who could make the most “moe” looking female cast an the guys (if there are any) didn’t look like fags.

      Fuck yeah. I remember the golden age of anime, when we had many of the best series ever made all coming out at once- Cowboy Bebop, Escaflowne, RahXephon, KareKano, Saikano, Trigun, Last Exile, Now & Then Here & There, Full Metal Panic, Noir, Onegai Teacher, Azumanga Daioh, Serial Experiments Lain… the list just goes on and on and on. The golden age has well and truly vanished without a trace and we are now stuck in anime’s “dork age”- equivalent to the time in Western Comics when everyone thought Rob Liefeld (a guy who can’t even get basic anatomy right and put more extraneous belts on his characters than a Square-Enix RPG) was the greatest artist in the industry. There’s no creativity or taste in the industry any more, everything revolves around either fanservice bordering on outright porn, or mindless moe.

      Fanservice and moe are not inherently bad things -consider some of the classics from the golden age like Love Hina and Azumanga Daioh- but they’re not enough to build an entire series around, or at least not enough to make one with any semblance of QUALITY. But then again, audiences these days don’t give a shit about quality, do they? Be honest, how many people here are watching this Upotte! garbage because it’s actually a quality story, and how many are just watching it for the barely-dressed, barely-pubescent girls being oversexualised?

      Naaah, it should just be seen as a slice of life/gag strip.

      This modicum of action not withstanding. It’s not the real focus of the story. More the interpersonal relations between the characters and the comedy that ensues from it.

      Whether it be Funco getting mad at the Japanese teacher at mentioning her thong underwear, or Steyr Aug being too bashful to admit to Funco that she’s got a crush on her, or that Sig is rather fond of Funco in that way as well.

      Or Eru being the little trooper that she is, despite her mechanical failings or M16 constantly bullying her.

    So, submachine guns mean elementary school, assault rifles mean middle school, while battle rifles are high school, right?

    Perhaps they could do some .50 cal & 12.7 mm machine guns as university girls, who like to go out on the town a lot and just wreck everything.

    They could even have them drive cars, which would explain the non-man-portable problem.

      “people kill people” tho i don’t get it since a misfire can still lead to injuries. even a heated bullet can kill a person if that person is the most unluckiest guy in the world.

      anywway, i want that teacher’s shirt. that shirt isn’t human so why no bullet holes?

      Consider them the embodiment of the gun that they represent.

      (No different from Hypnos being Sleep or Morpheus being Dreams in Greek Mythology.)

      Being the embodiment of something doesn’t mean that you can’t make use of items. So in their case, they make use of the weapon that they represent.

      View it as a way for companies to advertise their merchandise.

      It’s like the marketing video of the movie Prometheus, where Michael Fassbender plays an Android called David, who then tries to convince the audience, why they should buy other models like himself from the Weyland Corporation.

      Now how it’s possible that these guns end up as personifications is not something that’s touched upon by the anime anyway. And I don’t think the manga does either, as it’s more of a slice of life/gag strip from what I’ve heard.

      Just that the whole personification thing is something that’s being going on for a while in their version of Earth, considering that a number of WW2 and even a WW1 gun have their representations as well.

      The Headmaster of the School is a Springfield 1903. The other male teacher we see, dressed as a Marine Drill Instructor, is a M1 Garand. One of the female teachers is a FG42, whereas the other one shown is a Thompson SMG. Heck, the School “Nurse” is a Sig SK-46.

      And so ends? After all they are cyborgs or androids? Strange concept called gun but uses external weapons. Sadder is the dwindling number of chapters in each season, and end badly done with the intention of answering a next season or maybe never 🙁

  • 2 best parts of that episode:

    1. The first time Eru uses her legs to hold her magazine and caps that chick who walks around the corner.

    2. When Sig walks out of the freezer and caps the one AK bitch in the head. I know she was thinking “A freezer?! Bitch please I’m from Switzerland.”

    I found out where the rest of the trace photos are coming from, the search for Gynamstics pictures has all the details no manga artist can possibly draw from their own brain. The boob tracer isn’t the only one.

    • K so picture one of the guns from this anime ( FNC, M16A4, L85A1, SG550, Galil) k then embody that gun as a girl. When they shoot each other they are guns shooting guns so they can only break parts/dent each others metal. Interesting concept eh?

        you forgot secondary weapons and heavy guns. though they are guns, they should have noticable dents on their bodies. gun sights can get destroyed but be replaced, barrels can be dented and the stock could be removed but that takes quite a marksman to do specially if the stock is like funko’s
