Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C³ - Complete Collection (2013/Sentai DVD)

Picture: C Sound: B- Extras: C- Episodes: B-

Yura just got into the prestigious women's academy where she looks forward to starting her debut in hight school life, but the first thing she does is join the women's air soft team, or better known as C³ (Command, Control and Communications). As Yura gets to know the trigger happy girls of C³, the girls discover Yura's potential as gunslinger and together they play various survival games in Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C³ - Complete Collection (2013).

Yura is the quiet and shy girl, all her life she has been living in the shadows of others and never made any friends. So when she started high school she decided to make over life and become someone, but first thing that happens to her is she gets roped into a girl's gun club, there she meets Sonora, Captain of C³, where she admires her skill as a leader, gunner and her confidence. Soon, Yura discovers she herself is a natural and then ends up rivaling Sonora, but then starts believing winning is everything, and she forgets about being in C³ is also having fun and making friends.

This was a funny anime, it was a mix of girls, guns, and high school drama with a dash of comedy. Often, the characters would pretend/imagine themselves in some real/imaginary battle, anything from a Rambo parody to being on the shores of Normandy in World War II.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is soft (though consistent) in a way one can see why this is not on Blu-ray, while the lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is still not bad with some Pro Logic-like surrounds. Extras include clean opening and closing animation and trailers.
