Frame Arms Girl Anime

For discussion of all the other girl+mecha lines that have cropped up since Shinki began: Frame Arms: Girls, Megami Device, Armor Girls Project, Desktop Army, etc. This includes kinda-sortas like Daibadi's Polynian and things like Strike Witches and Fumikane's original Mecha Musume.

That was a very fun watch seeing them have Gourai and Ao as the main characters. Gourai being raised by an oblivious Ao, yet still raised to be efficient in battle with the help of Bukiko. Seeing Stylet (Sty-ko) being teased time and again, as well with Jinrai being a historical nut. Materia sisters being a sadistic tease, as with Baselard being a smart goofy girl. Hresvelgr being a crude minded girl simply seeking pleasure in strong fun battles.

I have to say that Kotobukia has done well with this anime by making sure everything was done the fun and uplifting way. Having Architect join in on a serious, yet informative note informing the group whenever needed. Whenever Ao or someone had a question Architect would be there to inform them of what needed to be known. Bukiko also teaching Ao about modeling while assisting from the sidelines. The whole singing the opera, or the episode 12 MMD styled concert. Macross even, or so I saw it as. It made sense that a farewell had to be done in an uplifting note, not a depressed one with Sty-ko stopping Gourai from crying. It's been a fun goofy anime well balanced with fighting, something people moaned that Busou Shinki TV anime wasn't. My respect to Kotobukiya.

Kotobukiya also has a thing for Christmas that they may have themed it for a December air time, yet was shown to be in spring & summer.

I love the tease at the end with Innocentia. Struggled to keep up with reviewing them, yet glad I reviewed them all :benio:. The show left itself open for a second season, or just a tease for an 'open ending' of what may be possible. Hoping to see Innocentia to be a tease.

i liked the series so far... but for some reason imho they went a bit too far with the fanservice route on the latter episodes. So even if the girls looked pretty and sexy (specially on the dream sequence, i'll give them that), it was something that i could barely stand... The Shinki anime had better taste in that regard...

8/10

Yeah, the part I wanted to note was how I HATED the charger fan-service crap at the earlier episodes. That irritated the hell out of me that I lost some of my Japanese Twitter followers for being "toxic" with that mindset. Sorry, but I hated that. How is charging sexual..... They really pushed the sexual fanservice with Ao, as well as the Materia sisters. They both were sexualized a ton to gain extra pull from the perverted side of the fanbase, something I disliked. Well, they did have 'soft' bodies so that's something to admire (as noted in one of my later reviews), yet it's as you say that it was done in an overkill fashion.

Yeah, it was a great run. I love how they appropriately placed the 'Live concert' to fit, yet it's as people say that it's "marketing material". They were clever with how they placed it in that you can't deny it, yet it's just.....Yeah.

8/10 sounds right for this show. I also wanted my Baselard, yet Amiami had to be a prude to deny lock my account that I need a new source to obtain the anime version of Baselard. Either that, or I won't have her. Stupid Amiami.

You could try HLJ for another Baselard.

I enjoyed the anime quite a lot. Ao is easily one of the most interesting and adorably dense Masters we've seen in a smol robot show, since she has waaaaaay more personality than someone like Rihito. Too bad she's kinda bad at plamo assembly, hahahaha.

The Lab Days manga also has some cool humans.
