So it's more of a stay of execution, as opposed to an acquittal.

Closing Oarai doesn't mean government's budget isn't enough though...

Next year is going to be tough, however, since they're the defending champions and nobody is going to underestimate them the way they were underestimated this year. Next year, everyone is going to bring their A-game to matches with Ooarai.

Hopefully, the government will at least reinforce success and hand out some more money so they can get better tanks. They can't just keep doing what they are doing.

The one saving grace is that we don't see a obvious next-up batter to serve as Captain in most of our opposing teams.

Frankly if the recruitment of new students work out then there is no problems. The idea is that since the ship is staffed with students, if there is a lack of new students there there is a very real danger that the ship could no longer be maintained. After all, the marine students had to do 8 hour shifts, if there isn't enough of them then the ship wouldn't be safe at sea any more.

I find this to be moste amusing. They're going for a world record of some sort

Also, for good measure, for all interested parties, I found a cleaned up, 1920 by 1080 version of the image consisting of a few of the school ships from OVA III. Unlike the original from the Japanese blog, this image names the school (Koala) for the vessel Invincible: in addition to the extra detail, it's sharper and lacks the black band around its borders, making it superior to the original in every way. Cheers!

did anyone else here find the OVA's interesting? ova 2 was run of the mill on the topic and not too remarkable aside from the "uniform code". OVA 3 was quite informative, although more details ans longer runtime wouldve been nice. the city ships can hold alot of people and its interesting on how they go about keeping them running.

This is basically how I was interpreting the series (or trying to interpret it) the whole time.

That's a severe level of chuunibyou there, unless you really see tank battles as yuri by proxy.

I was seeing Yukari/Miho back in the early stages based on what little I got, and the pixiv fandom has latched onto the same thing. These yuri goggles are unstoppable.

So far everyone still has all their clothes on.

...so far.

(Of all the pictures I've seen, I really expected this one to be titled "Girls und Pantsu.")

Also, Yukari x Panzer OTP.

Anchovy still has Carpaccio, so...

Anyone have the sales values for the 3rd volume yet? It was released on the 27th after all.
