Yamato Yura is a shy girl who has just entered into a boarding high school for rich girls. Similar to anyone who has had a not so perfect middle school days, she’s looking forward to reinventing herself while in high school. But well, we all know how shyness is not something you can just decide not to have.
But lo and behold, something remarkable happens on her first day in the campus. She finally settles into her dorm room, which she shares with a 3rd year who is currently away visiting her family. She manages to spy upon a very remarkable possession of her roommate…
Yes. A gun. Well, it’s an airgun, but still. Actually, Yura snoops around and finds more interesting stuff…
Meanwhile, in a club room inside the campus, the C3 survival games club is busy discussing how to recruit new members.
The initial plan is to stake out, secure, and storm into the assembly hall, but really now, that’s more apt for assaulting people than recruiting.
Now add these two elements together, and you can pretty much figure out that Yura’s roommate is a member (actually president) of that club, and that she’s prime for being the recruit of the club. So coincidence has it that Yura will be playing around with the guns she found, and Rento will chance upon her.
So how to recruit Yura? Bribery, of course.
If that doesn’t work, set up a trap!
Yura relents and decides to give it a shot. At least she’ll try this survival game the other girls are so into. So they play the Rambo game…
The premise is simple: There is one target, Rambo, who is equipped with a machine gun, fighting against four other people who only have handguns. And of course, Yura is part of the four-girl team. And thus the game begins at a conveniently placed forest at the school’s backyard.
To make the long story short, Rambo dominates using a series of sleuth and power moves, and somehow the entire experience actually enamors Yura.
Stupid? Quite. Amusing? Much so. The show is a pretty fun watch. From the get go we already know the premise is unrealistic, but this is anime so we’ll forgive that. It doesn’t resolve to doing simple gags for fun, so on that account it’s not as senseless as Upotte. It’s probably nearer to Girls und Panzer, with a likely angle of tournaments and such. I’m not sure if this show will go technical with guns, in the same way GuP did with tanks (which was pretty solid with their tank know-how according to my friends).
So what can I say? Not bad. It’s not gonna be the best show of this season, but this might generate just enough cult following to be a hit. I’m just not buying the slight yuri undertones.
