    Episode 1

    Fire up the club.

    So it begins with Hikari excited about starting life at Chidori High School wanting to go there specifically to join the rifle shooting club. Just one problem in that the club has just been disbanded and Hikari needs to quickly find new members to keep the club going. But luckily she found enough members to join as her friend Izumi is on board, as well as two sharpshooters who Hikari knows from the most recent competition in Erika and Yukio. And then with the club a go, they explain about how these rifles don't fire live ammo, but flashes, as well as those shooting suits that allow the shooters to stay upright. Pretty solid start there as the girls established themselves as great girls, all while the premise is an interesting one.

    As usual, trial period rules apply. This was one of the shows that piqued my interest, so I'm feeling pretty good about this show's chances.

      Re: Episode 1

      Izumi and Hikari sure are flirty with each other. Also, Yukio and Erika give me Eva vibes for obvious reasons. More so Erika though. As the episode progressed, Hikari's liking (or as my mind likes to read her lust) for Erika seemed to grow by the scene. Now I'm conflicted on how to ship things.

      In any case, Erika is best girl that's the main conclusion I've drawn.

        Episode 2

        Shooting blanks.

        Hikari shows that she has been living under a rock, and it's just hard to believe that she got into this school. From not knowing the difference between hardball and softball, to not using the correct baseball glove, to not realizing that any suit more rigid than what they have is illegal, she's got quite a lot to learn. And the fact that she bombed her midterm exams is quite telling. But even so, she's determined to become a top-notch shooter. They are going to need a lot of practice, but at least Hikari has the motivation.

          Episode 3

          Firing up the competition.

          Not long after the club got started, the girls are already having a practice match against the powerhouse Asaka Academy RSC, who was last year's runner-up in the Nationals. The reason this was possible is because it just so happens that Erika and the club president Akira are cousins. As expected, Yukio and Erika do well seeing that they are always among the top competitors, while Hikari and Izumi struggle. Though Hikari was way off-target with her practice shots, there's something about her game that always seems to improve quite a lot when it's for real. Even so she still needs to work on her game if she's going to stand a chance against a powerhouse like Asaka. Those Asaka girls are quite an interesting bunch as there's Erika and Akira being family, all while Hikari and Karen become friends seeing that they are both just getting started.

            Advice for the advisor.

            The girls spend Sunday in different ways from Hikari just wanting to take a snooze to Yukio taking an unexpected trip to the sea after chasing a cat and ending up taking a ride on the express train. So it's back to school where the girls are practicing hard for the qualifier, but there's just one problem. The girls need a teacher to be their advisor, and there just so happens to be one available who is new to the school in Tsurumaki-sensei. It turns out she needs to be helped out seeing that her place is a mess, but she's great for the club. Pretty nice way to introduce the advisor as she's right at home with the club even though she's not up to speed about rifle shooting.

              I approve of Sensei and I like the fact for once the advisor approached them rather than being forced into it.

                In the heat of competition.

                It's time for the qualifier, and the excitement happens even before the girls get to the competition as the advisor is driving for the first time since getting her license. And then it's onto the competition as Hikari is up first. She's shooting lights out initially, but towards the end she starts to tire out. However, she gets better towards the end to make the cut. That was some nice action there as Hikari shows that she can step up her game when she needs to.
