Anime Spotlight #59

Time to break this break I’ve had from posting here!

Let’s look at some pretty girls flying some heavily-altered fighter jets!

Mating Arpeggio of Blue Steel with Sky Girls yields Girly Air Force — and it’s fairly girly, indeed!

The main girl is Gripen, who’s based on the Cold War-era Swedish fighter jet of the same designation.  In this Anime, a Swedish Gripen was R-n-R’d to become a hybrid Human-Xi craft capable of fighting the Xi itself — the technologically-advanced alien race plaguing humanity in this show.  Gripen the girl is a gynoid created using Xi technology, who is wired to fly the Gripen — or, is supposed to!

See, poor Gripen can only fly well when her favourite guy is close to her.  And, she’s the only one who’s like that; the other two hybrid-jet girls don’t have that “issue.”  So, the guy in question eventually has to sit in the cockpit with Gripen and try to stay conscious for as long as humanly possible — which is a lot harder than with normal jets because these hybrids can maneuver like the Xi can, easily topping 10-G’s and going far beyond the human limit of gravity tolerance.

Inasmuch as the show reminds me of Arpeggio and Strike Witches, I found it to be a rather enjoyable Anime.  Maybe you’ll enjoy it, too!
