Review by: John Fragglepuss Evans
Genre: Slice of Life, Ecchi, Comedy, Military
First Aired: Winter 2015, 12 short-form episodes
Summary: The story takes place during a fight between the Krakozhia Dukedom and the Grania Republic. Yano Souhei, a seemingly normal high school student, appears to save the Krakozhia Dukedom. Colonel Aira is a voluptuous commissioned officer in the Krakozhia military who is the commanding officer of the trigger-happy Lieutenant Lutgalnikov and the clumsy Second Lieutenant Haruka. On the other end is Sergeant Shakirov, an assassin sent by Grania to eliminate Sohhei.
At least you know what you’re getting into with Military. It’s ridiculous, full of fan-service, and is not shy about it. There is a decent amount of tanks and weaponry as well as an excessive amount of chibi. It’s not to be taken seriously, which is obvious through the over-the-top violence combined with sexual innuendo.
You might enjoy this if: You’re not wary of cartoonish violence and sexual innuendo. You will know if this is the show for you by the end of the first 3-minute episode.
You might not like it if: You want a series with substance and a fulfilling story.
Note to the Viewer: Military is adapted by the animation studio Creators in Pack and is their first release.
