Series Summary from MangaUpdates:
A teacher is looking for a school by the name of Seishou Academy, as he is a new transfer teacher for that school. Seishou Academy is known for having students with excellent marksmanship. However, he gets lost along the way and decides to look for someone who knows where the school is at a summer festival. He encounters a girl at a shooting range and finds her marksmanship skills to be professional. The girl tells the new teacher that she is an assault rifle, not a student. Her name is FNC and is an assault rifle of Seishou Academy. The new teacher attends school the next day to find students, including FNC, practicing shooting M16s and realizes that he has come to an unbelievable school. How will his experience be at Seishou Academy? 

Kenn's Comment: Xebec...ugh. I'll avoid from complaining about them and how the character designs of Kanoko/LvB (the noseless ones) get old quickly like the ones by Hirai Hishashi (Gundam Seed, Linebarrels of Iron). They're series are almost always loaded with fanservice, so I've always been a bit apprehensive when they're at the helm of a series that's not fanservice oriented. This one is one of those series; the manga, to my knowledge, featured very little fanservice, if any at all.

Another thing I'll complain about is how different the characters look from the manga designs. Funko in particular. Good lord, she looks completely different. I looked forward to this one when I first saw the anime announcement, but at the moment, I'm dreading what it could end up as.
