Another Reason I Love Anime!

Pandora

I absolutely love the way anime occasionally depicts realistic details that any other film would have overlooked or deliberately excluded. In the first episode of Koukaku no Pandora, Nene ejects the magazine of her handgun to see if it’s loaded. Then she reloads the mag and racks the gun’s slide to load the first round, not realizing that a bullet was already chambered. As a result, the gun ejects the chambered round! This is actually a very common gun handling mistake that movies & television series never ever show. I love the fact that this anime episode acknowledges and depicts Nene’s gun handling mistake.
