Which is still a pretty big compliment to be paid in terms of things to be compared to.
Hmm ... well, that's a little better I guess. Maybe I will just prick my ears up on this one then.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Bah, it's moe schoolgirls complete with shining eyes instead of anthropomorphized tanks. If it's anything like Sora no Woto (painfully boring to me) I'll pass.

I think Strike Witches would be our "planes"(altho persoanlly would like to see another different take on planes and with modern day planes) and there is a manga series that deals with Naval warfare, altho slightly more mature than what we usually get.

You know whats a pity here is the main character designs are bland and well pretty generic, I would have much prefered some of the girls in the uniforms that were lined up at the start of the PV.
They were all alot better looking and more diverse in character design compared to what we got.

I feel like getting the models of the tanks now, haven't actually got any WWII tank models yet.
Oddly enough depsite love for WWII stuff, the models never tickled my fancy.
But seeing the Pink Lee makes me want one

People who talk about a new Sengoku genderbent anime is worse than the girls' military animes like this.

This show makes no sense, I mean, you don't just find old tanks lying around waiting to be fixed.

And secondly, how expensive are those parts going to be? Or how about the fuel. Tanks make cars look cheap.

Possible that the school was a tank storage or something, or the tank was a gift from a sister school before/during WW2.

Custom manufacturing is possible. Relatively expensive, but still possible given Japan's talent for getting the craziest parts made.

The Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. E consumed 7.82 liters per km, which would be around 1195 yen per km, so $10 per km. It's not that expensive.

So for every km they travel, they need to work for an hour...


That said what about insurance?

Insurance would work as per normal. Its not like they've allowed them girls to load actual 75mm rounds into their rig...

So, I got introduced to this series by a tank nut. Will be hanging around still. Setting up anti-Saintess traps and counterTRONmeasures. Latter might not be necessary given the lack of milksacks so far.

And on the Original Character front, I sense that this series might inspire a new resurgence. Time to dust off the Senjou no Valkyja girls.

Thread invasion, STARTO!

I know now why Hitler desperately need those oil fields for his numerous tanks back then.

Back again.. Will their school fund for such a project??

Not surprising to see the PzIV as the "main" vehicle considering the Japanese love of German hardware. And despite the focus of the PV on the schoolgirls, DEM DETAIL on the tanks makes this a must see

I'll definitely be looking forward to this one. School girls? WWII era tanks? What could possibly go wrong?

Interesting, because have an old model of this tank. Panzer grey too.

Is that an aircraft carrier in the background?

Boredom. Failure to use the gimmick to any sort of effect and instead falling back on the whole cute girls doing the same old cute things concept we see 10's of times each year. The usual pitfalls.

Seriously you have no idea how many times I've looked at one of these and said, "hey this might be fun for the novelty and there's even the potential for some action and drama" only to find out no there isn't, all there's room for is light hearted inanity and stock scenarios.

The title is particularly weird. Why not go all the way and make it all German, "like "Mädchen und Panzer"?

Anyway, chara design doesn't look too inspiring. Hope it doesn't become a lame Sora no Woto.
