As promised a new post about this series. So I’ve rewatched the anime and are currently reading chapter 0 of the manga and just from that chapter I got a new image of both Matsuoka and Yukimura. But this post is going to be about the anime…though I don’t have that much to say about it. Now I’ve done my best not to write any spoilers, but obviously, there are in the ”ending” section so just don’t read it if you don’t want spoilers.
so the anime is about our heroine Hotaru Tachibana who joins a survival games group called Toy Gun Gun, who has the members Masamune Matsuoka and Tooru Yukimura. They strive after becoming the best group of Japan meaning they would win Top Gun Combat and beat the group Hoshishiro, who have been the winners of TGC for four years. But the problem for Hotaru is that Toy Gun Gun doesn’t allow females to join their group and she was recruited with them thinking she is a male. So for her to keep playing with them she has to hide the truth even though her strong sense of justice makes her feel bad about it.
About the characters, I find them very likable even though one of them especially is a bit cray-cray. And I like that we get to see some different sides to them. But when it comes to their backgrounds I would love to get to know more, I don’t think we got to know as much as we could have and that irritates me. Just from reading some of chapter 0 I can say that I got a way bigger picture of Yuki’s and Matsu’s relation to each other whereas I don’t think we get to know enough about it in the anime. The same goes for some of the relations between other characters.
I really like the anime and by rewatching it I actually like it more than I remember. It’s safe to say that I would love a season 2. More like I need it. But oh well.- I’m just gonna read the manga and hope for a new season.
Now the ending is a whole other story. First time I watched the anime I didn’t know that it was the last episode. it didn’t really feel like it and ending on a cliffhanger like that is a crime. Sure it’s great that she worked up the courage to be able to tell them the truth but ending there without telling us how they will react and if they’ll still accept her on the team, they probably will, but still. I don’t want to guess I need to be 100% sure!
