Anime Review: Soukou Musume Senki (2021).
Synopsys Soukou Musume
Five girls are robbed of their daily lives and instead forced to become part of the “LBX Unit”, wearing the ultimate weapon armor while working together as “Armored Girls.” Their mission is to destroy and cleanse the metallic life force “Mimesis” as it moves and destroys the world. This turns out to be a school picnic like no other, as they live like soldiers and carry the responsibility for the hopes and despair of the world on their shoulders in an adventure that stretches across space and time!
In the year 2051, all young LBX players from around the world team up to complete Mizel’s crisis mission. Mizel contains energy capable of splitting the world in two.
This anime tells about another parallel world from the world of LBX Danball Senki. Tells the story of children’s games that turn into military technology after the crisis.
World governments are worried about future large-scale terrorism because of the remains left by Mizel. Then they also developed a technology called the Little Battle Counter System.
