Girls' Frontline

Feb 3, 2023

I found this to be a very likeable innovative story well executed. I liked the characters and the comeraderie they built up. Since I liked most of the story, I am actually going to focus more on where this show could use some improvements. The first is sound. The focus is on the AR team, so called because each is carrying a primary firearm in the AR-15/M-16 class. This firearm has a distinctive spring sound, derived from the buffer spring inside the buffer tube of the butt stock. Just like the distinctive sound of the AK-47, the AR's all have this distinctive spring sound each time the action cycles. It isn't very loud but it is noticeable and it wasn't present in the show. All gunfire used generic gunfire sounds but each character is named by the firearm they carry so we should be hearing the distinctive sound effects. A Walther PPK may not be able to be identified from a PPK/S by sound but it can easily be identified from an Uzi. Likewise, the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter had generic helicopter sounds rather than the sound of an actual Blackhawk. The story does have some logic holes bigger than mere suspension of disbelief. For one, this story takes place in a future after a nuclear war where human soldiers are largely replaced with "T-Dolls" or Tactical Dolls, androids fabricated to take humans out of direct danger. However, some are armed with antiquated weapons like the PPSh-41 using rather hard to find 7.62 X 25mm Tokarev ammo and the Mosin-Nagant bolt action rifle chambered in 7.62 X 54mmR ammunition. No one is carrying more modern SCARs or SAWs even though some characters have ACOGs mounted on their rifles. It's not perfect but it is pretty darn good.
