Kotobukiya's Frame Arms models are a line of plastic robot model kits designed by mechanical designer Takayuki Yanase (Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Muv‐Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse). The new Frame Arms Girl line, introduced in 2015, introduces new designs by Humikane Shimada (Strike Witches, Girls und Panzer character designs), featuring robots from the original Frame Arms line portrayed as girls. The first model in the line, Gourai, is based on Yanase's robot design with the same name. An anime series sis scheduled to being in April 2017. The story begins when Ao opens a package that arrives at her doorstep. Inside the package is Gourai, a Frame Arms Girl: a small robot capable of independent movement. Gourai is a newly‐developed prototype: a Frame Arms Girl equipped with an "Artificial Self," an advanced AI that gives her personality. Ao is the only one that has activated her. Gourai begins to gather both battle data and emotions, starting a day‐to‐day life with Ao, who knows nothing
about Frame Arms Girls.
