Yura Yamato has just arrived at the high school division of Stella Women's Academy, when Sonora Kashima invites her to join a club called "C³". Sonora is the third-year student who became the new head of this club for military survival games. The other members include two second-year students (part-Japanese Karila Hatsuse and G36K-wielding Honoka Mutsu) and two other new students (Rento Kirishima whose family runs a Japanese sweets shop and the really short Yachiyo Hinata).

Really nice anime, nothing less to expect from gainax.
I wasn't certain about it after the first episode, but decided to check it out anyway — and that was a good choice. Nicely balanced comedy, action and psychology. Characters are well developed (and are developing throughout the series). Artwork is pretty nice too.

What is the C³'s club daily order of business? Eating cake, drinking tea, running gun blazing through the forest with airguns and well... having fun.
This marks the only show I picked up late in the season due to it's buzz. Unlike the expected "cute girls-show" Gainax added their own flavor to it. There was the potential of our protagonist Yura having hallucinations or being able to alter time (or create worlds of her own) but this is also one of the shows flaws. It tries to do too many things. The latter never really comes up again after it's been depicted. There is also some plotarmor in place (as far as getting hit goes) and some animation shortcuts (stillframes mostly).
What made me like this show so much was the rather edgy rise and fall of Yura. You just can't help but worry about the steps she takes and the show goes to some pretty dark places for it's style, heck - there could have been some kind shooting at one point. Just look at how much someone typed about her developement; http://tobiichi.wordpress.com/2013/09/20/in-defense-of-yura-yamato/ :o. I hope this isn't considered a spoiler but it all ends happy with everyone having fun again. Oddly enough it seems like they aired a more OVA like episode as number 13 so the true end is actually in the twelfth EP.
