Guns and Girls in Anime

C3I get it. It’s who we are. I mean, look at the extremely weird standards we hold our waifu to. God forbid most of them ever touch a gun. They need to be pure and delicate, or otherwise who the fuck would want to… well you get the idea. Suffice it to say, I was a bit surprised that there has been some backlash to the new anime Stella Women’s Academy, High School Division Class C³, henceforth referred to as C3.

To put it simply, it’s freaking airsoft. Get over it. Quick question for everyone – What is the difference between this and Girls und Panzer. Answer – None, they are both freaking imaginary. Yet, the indignation about girls using guns in C3 didn’t seem to be a problem when we threw in a German conjunction. Suffice it to say, and I’ve said a lot, Girls und Panzer is blatantly unrealistic and its characters are walking cliches.

But maybe that is all us male Otaku can handle. If our waifu is going to be shooting guns, she better be a vapid shell with no real personality, because if we ever mix guns and normal women together in a realistic manner, then hell will freeze, pigs will fly, and cats and dogs will be singing kumbaya. So before you go spouting out how disturbed you are about this anime as the reason you won’t watch this anime, grow up and chill. That said, I’m not going to watch this show because the whole tea and crumpets thing is played out for me, and even the addition of guns, no matter how well done won’t make a difference to me.

On a personal note, I grew up playing paintball on some weekends, and our get together often included girls. Paintball, I believe, is far more dangerous than airsoft, but I don’t think any less of any girls we played with, and I don’t think any of them went to jail. People need to get over themselves and their self promoting indignation. Lighten up.
