Author Looking for a specific anime, forgot name

Okay, so, there's this deadly fantasy anime where 2 mc's, along with a few others, are given big mecha-like guns and swords and told to kill some monsters on some medieval Earth-equivalent planet. Some of the others, including a dark elf woman, think they can take them on, and promptly get sliced and wiped by said monsters. Only the 2 mc's are alive at this point until some veteran big sword-and-gun wielders come in and save their hides. They are then told to man up and join them. I saw a video of this on youtube a while back, but can't find it again for the life of me. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do you remember if the MCs were male/female or a pair of both? The mention of "mecha-like guns" makes me think "God Eater", but I don't remember any Dark Elves in it.

Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar has a dark elf and mecha, but no cool guns that I remember

@HDMI1 @beperov Sorry if I haven't updated this post, I was under the impression that no one was looking, on account of the lack of updates/mentions from anyone. Uh, it was a pair of male MCs that survived the first encounter with the monster enemies, which the dark elf woman and two other extras died to. It's not tenchi muyo, it has more of a seinen sci-fi atmosphere to it. There is a definite possibility of death to it, like imagine if someone crossed Grimgar with God Eater without the CGI and a bit of Tenchi. If you can, you're definitely in the right ball park. It is an obscure anime which I still cannot find for the life of me. Currently trying to find it under the seinen and sci-fi tags at MAL, but no luck. I know for a fact that the death-tagged dark elf waifu is definitely a part of the first episode, and that the sci-fi armor and weapons they used were something like discount Infinite Stratos knock-offs without the ability to fly, or wings. If anyone has any more ideas, please let me know. I need to know the title, at least.

@beperov Sorry, but it's neither of these things. I told ya'll it's kinda obscure. And sci-fi.

@IudexRichten Sorry to bring this back up, but do you remember how the artstyle looked? Can you pick out the style from the images below?







@bigtiddyoneesan Thanks for the heads up! I fixed the links.

You might want to find alternative links for those images. "gawkerassets.com" is automatically blocked (on Firefox at least), so they show up as broken images.

Here's the first one tho:

@HDMI1 @bigtiddyoneesan I know for a fact that it is not ancient, it is actually modern animation. Think 2010-2015 era, maybe give or take 5 years. As I said, it looks to be a mish-mash of sorts, with the characters wearing sci-fi partial exoskeleton suits (no giant robots or actual mechas, think discount Infinite Stratos), wielding large weapons, hunting down monsters/aliens on a possibly undeveloped world, with sliced and decapitated corpses of overconfident allies on the first episode, and a deus ex machina in the form of veteran fighters. If I had to say, it might have also had a "game" plotline, or "greater power". The planet is most definitely not Earth. The story follows the two male recruits/best friends that survived the first encounter.
I won't blame you if you give up on searching this, a month is simply far too long to spend on searching for an obscure item.

@IudexRichten Have you posted to /r/tipofmytongue as well? You'll get a lot more people helping to figure it out.

Yeah, I was gonna suggest this as well. The only anime I found that even remotely matches your description is Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There!

Maybe this one?

Since it does fill some criteria like:
it is actually modern animation

wielding large weapons

possibly undeveloped world

The planet is most definitely not Earth

The story follows the two male recruits/best friends

Don't know if it fill the rest though

@LunaKara That's really freaking close. I'm now interested in this as well. Now, imagine this, but sci-fi.
@HDMI1 @bigtiddyoneesan I guess that means I'll have to blow out the cobwebs on my old reddit account. Don't really use it that much. :/

PSO had an anime? I didn't know it was big.

After skimming through the first episode, yeah, this seems like it's the one.

Goddamn, that was an amazing guess, I must've glanced over PSO2 on the first look. I was so sure that the MC had red armor, but now that I look closer, this is it! Thank you, everyone! Now I can finally kill my curiosity... and see why it has a 6.5 score. Hmm.
