Anime — Sky Girls

Girls in aerial frames blowing stuff up -- what's not to like?

After devastating global conflict against autonomous machines called WORMs, reconstruction has begun, with the 20-40 age group decimated after the conflict, leaving teenage girls in the front line when the WORMs return, in this title which builds upon (and modifies the continuity of) the 2006 OVA.

A little bit slice of life meets monster of the week, with a blink and you miss it somewhat confused environmental moral. Not an enduring classic, but a bit of good harmless fun with girls blowing stuff up, and one of the better titles from 2H07.
