Ok, let me tell you this, I really don't like a show where the premise is just a bunch of girls doing military stuff with a story which is not deep enough. I even hate it more if the show has some useless fanservice in it. The major offender from this genre is Strike Witches (especially season 2). I just can't stand that show. Fanservice abound, boring story, shallow characters and its main purpose is just to pander on otakus' many fetishes like panties, nekomimi, loli, little girls with big guns, etc. I was actually traumatized by it.
So, I have to ask, is this Girls und Panzer somewhat similar to Strike Witches? Or is it more like K-ON! with tanks? Or is it more like Sakura Wars/Sakura Taisen?
Well, it's already sure that I'm not going to the cosplay event by Oh No! Manga because it's too far away.
However, one of my friends informed me of another anime convention, much nearer and I would be able to go to easily.
Well, actually one reason I'm not attending the Oh No Manga convention in Taytay is because there's another one happening much nearer (The Grand Pop Culture Fair!). Only a 2 hr trip. If only we are in the same country, I would have invited you to come with us - the more the merrier. There's people assembling gundam model kits in almost every convention that I attend these days - I don't join the gundam groups, but you might be interested in them since you're a gundam fan.
I'll keep you updated if I manage to attend the one happening this Saturday. ",)
My only regrets would be not seeing my friend cosplay Homura and that "motion manga", but there's always next time.
