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.
