Moe Check! ยป Destroying Demons, Plus The Building They're Standing On

Hazumi and Hime contemplate their relationship with Takumi.

Anime News Network gives Combustible Campus Guardress a vintage of "1993 to 1994", which makes me feel a bit old. Not very old, since I wasn't even a teen back then (close, though), but old enough to know what they're talking about when they mention a pokeberu. The last time I watched this anime was about four and a half years ago, and apparently I don't have any new insights from the intervening years of anime obsession.

Hazumi "Queen of Friendly Fire" Jinno seems cut from the same cloth as Slayers's Lina Inverse, Goddess of Collateral Damage. I'm not sure what it is about non-angsty, relatively well-adjusted girls with stupid amounts of firepower that intrigues me so, but judging from the Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha fandom, I'm not alone.

    I think you've sort of answered your own question, there. Let's see… non-angsty? Sweet. Relatively well-adjusted? That's a nice change of pace. Stupid amounts of firepower? Excellent.

    You … you mean such girls actually exist in anime???

    Kidding aside, GreyDuck said it best. I guess there are actually some of us out there who actually like strong female leads. I enjoy seeing dudes kick major ass as much as the next guy, but it's a nice change to see a girl kick some major butt once in a while too. Personally, I'm a little tired of seeing the same old man-dependent / "weak" / "emotional" / useless female characters, so I'm all for more Lina Inverse's and Hazumi Jinno's (and Ravi's from Black Lagoon).

    BTW, I saw Combustible Campus Guardress a while back as well and loved it. IIRC, it was such a stupid yet funny show. If someone is really bored and wants to watch something dumb, I suggest maybe giving it a shot. :D
