I have been watching this new anime for the past couple of weeks called Aoharu x Machinegun. Before you keep reading ***Spoiler Alert***!!
The first episode introduces you to a character named Hotaru Tachibana (second image). He intervenes in a bullying situation two male students are harassing another student. Hotaru jumps out of a window that’s at least on the second floor but the bullies stop once they realize who he is. Get This…. Hotaru is not a boy but rather is a girl who dresses in the male uniform. Hotaru’s friend teases her about having no boobs and how she is going to make her wear a dress. Hotaru’s personality is unusual in the sense that she is extremely anti-evil to the point that people will later on use that to make her do things.
Within the first episode, Hotaru goes to a host club to defend the honor of her friend because Hotaru believes that her friend was taken advantage of. OH!! Did I forget to say that Hotaru is super strong and fast. When at the host club, she encounters the main host who turns out the be her neighbor. He challenges her to a duel. It really a gun fight but paintball -ish instead of real bullets. Its no surprise that Hotaru looses and has to compete in “paintball” tournaments to repay the furniture she destroyed running across. Just picture a titan running making craters in the earth except more fun human size on coffee tables.
That’s the first episode for you… don’t want to spoil the rest. All in all I enjoy this anime and its characters and I will keep watching.
