- 1 Season
Aoharu x Machinegun is a Japanese animated series created by Brain's Base animation studios. The series is based off of the shonen manga series of the same name created by NAOE and published by Final Fantasy's Square Enix. The plot revolves around the fiery and pure hearted student council leader, Hotaru Tachibana. Hotaru is well known and respected around her high school for her strength both of mind and body as well as for her ironclad sense of justice. She regularly encounters friends and fellow classmates whom are being bullied by the crueler members of the school and soundly reprimands the ruffians, beating them into submission. Hotaru's best friend one day comes to her and tells her that he was scammed out of a large sum of money by a mysterious man named Matsuoka, who runs a popular and nearby nightclub. Matsuoka is also Hotaru's next door neighbor. Incensed to the extreme, Hotaru instantly marches over to Matsuoka's club and confronts over the matter. However, Matsuoka calmly explains that Hotaru's friend is nothing more than a lier. This only further enrages Hotaru who challenges Matsuoka to a fight. He agrees but only if they duel in his fashion - a rough and tumble airsoft gun battle. This leads Hotaru into Matsuoka's strange world of survival games, games which curiously begin to make Hotaru question the extent of the strength she had come to rely so heavily upon.
