From wikipedia:

Plot

It's been over 500 years since the human race almost went extinct at the hands of the fearsome and mysterious "Beasts". The surviving races now make their homes, towns, and cities up on floating islands in the sky to keep out of reach of all but the most mobile of Beasts. Only a group of young girls, dubbed the Leprechauns, can wield the ancient Dug Weapons needed to fend off invasions from those dangerous creatures. Into the peoples' unstable and fleeting lives, where a simple call to certain death could come at any moment, enters an unlikely character: a mysterious man who lost everything in his final battle five hundred years ago, and had awakened from a long, icy slumber. Unable to fight any longer, the man, Willem, becomes the father those kids never had, caring for and nurturing them even as he struggles to come to terms with his new life, in which he feels the pain of helplessly waiting for his loved ones to return home from battle that his 'Daughter' once felt for him so long ago. Together, Willem and the leprechauns gradually come to understand what family means and what is truly worth protecting in their lives.

Talk about your strange long titles.......

It starts out with a young man{Willem Kmetsch} who gets put in charge of a weapons depot.
But it is more like an orphanage then a weapons depot, with all the children living there.
He finds out that the children{Leprechauns} are the weapons, and he is to watch over them.
One of the Leprechauns is a young girl named Chtholly, whom he meets while on is way to the Warehouse and Facility.
Willem and Chtholly fall in love, but they don't get to have much time together.
For being a Leprechaun, Chtholly's life is greatly shortened when she uses her magic.
We later find out that humans have mutated into monsters, and beasts have become intelligent anthropomorphic beings.
{A.k.a: Dog people, Cat people, Bird people, etc......}
The beast people live on floating islands, away from the devastated land bellow.
But treasure hunters, and military salvagers go down to the surface, looking for artifacts.
It is risky at best, with all the monsters that live on the surface.
Only the monsters have been making their way to some of the floating islands.
Thus, the military needs the Leprechauns, because they are the only ones that can stand up against the monsters.
Too stop the monsters from completely destroying the last of the intelligent beings in their world.

Character Drawings and backgrounds are good.

Dub & Sub was okay.

Story.....
Good.
Characters are likeable.
A tragic romance between a human and a magical Leprechaun girl.
It uses the premise of Leprechauns being used as weapons, and not treated well as intelligent living beings.
But the series tries to show how the last human being is put in charge of taking care, nurturing,
and protecting his young Leprechaun charges.
