Going to watch the rest of this for sure.


EDIT: I was wondering. Are the tanks used in this anime, copied from real tanks?
Yes.

I wasn't going to pick this show up, but I decided to check out the first episode and I like it. The characters are nice and the tank action look pretty cool. I might watch the rest. I hope we see injuries and deaths in this anime.

Turn back before you've wasted XXX amount of your life! Much rather anticipate these complaints now.

Well I'm not expecting it, but it would be funny given the atmosphere presented.

There is no way that there will have boys on the run(Maybe as spectators looking at girls fighting with Tanks.), since in the first place, we know this show is called Girls und Panzers.

Also, what kind of ship can carry a city?

What went through the mind of the creator of this monstrosity?

It has the Saccharine cuteness and positiveness of K-on, crossed with Tanks. In a school on-top of a Cruise Ship, in a bizzaro world.

We are definitely not suppose to take this anime with a single modicum of seriousness.

And I have a suspicion that our MC accidentally and literally killed a team during one of her matches.

Still i don't understand why it is a tradition, want to make men look like pussy instead? A bit of error there I supposed, since Churchill and Matilda II are all infantry tanks, that means they are meant to fight infantry, why would the tanks go after another tank? Still it is nice, so I am gonna continue watching it. Everyone love tanks.

Heavy tanks for MILFs.

Ships are mixed gender craft because everyone lives on them.

That means, boys fly Lightnings!

And yeeeees creative juices are flowing.

You'd be surprised what a person can become invested in. If everything is viewed through a lens of "this must be a parody/I'm sure this isn't supposed to be taken seriously", that can be a bit of a roadblock at times.

I never realized that tanks were that small during that era. Were most of the tanks that small during WWII era?

Going over the shots again, it looks like the Student President is in the 38(t) instead of the Japanese tank. What was confusing is that they're missing a crew member. The Type 89 looks to be crewed by the volleyball team.

I think that I know why the Japanese are so bad at building and using tanks now - instead of Heinz, they have a tank commander by the name of Erwin. One of these two wrote Actung-Panzer!, while the other wrote Infantry Attacks.

Does anyone know the references for Oryou and Saemonza?

I'm pretty sure I can remember lots of casualties and battlefield losses in Saki . Is tank combat somehow less dangerous?

Those aren't banners - they're sashimono. Who'd go into battle without sashimono? Besides, everyone would shoot at the pink M3 first anyways.

The interwar British tank doctrine was to have slow and heavily-armored infantry tanks to support infantry units and fast cavalry tanks to support cavalry units. The Matilda II's 40mm main gun does not fire HE rounds, so it's used primarily in anti-armor roles.

Even though the British doctrine was completely unworkable, they still ended up with the best tank built during the war (even though it never saw any combat).

I'm hoping for (and will never get) a Centurion and an ISIII.

The STuG III is 5.40m x 2.95m x 1.85m while a modern M1A2 is 7.93m x 3.66m x 2.44m. The STuG III is one of the smallest AFVs, while something like the M3 is much larger at 5.64m x 2.72m x 3.12m (!).

Well, to be fair things like the Pz 35 and 38, the PzII,a nd the BT series were pretty tiny.

Here's a Pz. I and a Koenigstiger turret.
