Busou Shinki (武装神姫, Busou Shinki) is a 12-episode mecha, action/adventure, anime television series produced by Eight Bit and broadcast on TBS in Japan in 2012. This TV series is based on the Busou Shinki armored women action-figure toys manufactured by Konami Digital Entertainment. The TV series is an adaption of the previously released ONA Busou Shinki: Moon Angel. Sentai Filmworks licensed the TV series for distribution in North America in 2012. The anime series' Busou Shinki characters are animated versions of the Busou Shinki toys. In the anime, the shinki characters are as small, and have the same features, of young adult women in body armor, as the toys. The shinki characters also have visible mechanical limb articulation and have screw holes in the front of their shoulders, like the action figures. The shinki characters are depicted as autonomous gynoid robots that reveal their electronic and mechanical interior workings if their body armor is broken through. Although the shinki are robots, they reveal a rich range of emotional responses; from loyalty and love to rage and even insanity.
