It kinda looks a lot like Strike Witches or Angelic Layer. Strike that, it looks just like Angelic Layer in concept.

I kinda think this might be like Lostorage Incited WIXOSS. It looks similar with the LRIG girls. Oh! Keiichirou Kawaguchi is the director?! He did Oshiete! Galko-chan as well as Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R and the 4th Season of Minami-ke!!!

If that is true, then this could be more Slice of Life with dashes of Comedy over Action. Then again, Angelic Layer was cute and I would love to see it come back...

Synopsis

One day in the early morning, a high school girl receives a small, mysterious parcel. When she opens it up, there is a small, autonomous robot known as a Frame Arms Girl inside. Her name is Gourai. It’s a toy! A plastic model!

However, Gourai is not your average Frame Arms Girl. Gourai possesses much more intelligence than a normal AI. Endowed with a personality and artificial ego, as well as, equipped with AS (artificial self), Gourai is the newest prototype model. Not to mention too, when Ao starts her up, she is the only owner of a Gourai model in the world.

Gourai, Frame Arms Girl, begins to collect Battle Data as well as learn human emotions.
Ao, a girl, has zero knowledge about Frame Arms Girls.

Now, the two of them, Girl and Frame Arms Girl, are going to begin their strangely fun days together!

Three Episode Impression

This anime is about how figurines were alive and can engage in miniature battles. The plot starts off with Ao Gennai who received a Frame Arms Girl, named Gourai, from her father. Upon activating Gourai, Ao realized she haven’t a clue about what the new technology is all about. It’s up to Gourai and the others to make her learn more about each other. Both human and Frame Arms Girl-wise.

The first thing you would notice is how it is animated. For the scenes involving a Frame Arms Girl, it’s animated with a 3D looking style, which can be a turn off for some. But story wise, it is kind of interesting to see the little figurines battle it out in big guns and armors. I guess this anime has its good points. Other than the animation style (it seemed weird to me), you can give this series a go.

As a result, she becomes the only person in the world to have a Gourai model.

So, she decides to treat it like a part time job and tries out a test battle with Gourai.

Gourai

Voice Actor: Narumi Kaho


Gourai is a test model for Frame Arms Girl that was mistakenly delivered to Ao. When it comes to being a Frame Arms Girl, the system, weapons, and equipment, she is a wealth of knowledge. However, her knowledge is lacking in what human emotions like “happiness” and “sadness” are.

Stylet
