Of course, being an editor myself there (however sparingly I contribute), I can ensure that more obscure stuff, such the length of the school ships, is in fact accurate (by finding a good source to back up the claims).

That's racism! Bigotry! Discrimination!

You need to hate people more equally. It's very liberating! I hate people all equally .. just some more equally than others.

Everything else had to be dependent on the stuff that was in-show (which led to both spot-on conjecture and the usual tinfoil hat crazy theories), as the BR supplements on the setting only became availables with the BRs themselves.

Here, it's not an issue, but for individuals who largely depend on TVT for information, the assumption that they have access to source materials is somewhat unfair for those of us on the other side of the planet, where there is no access to source materials. Thus, it is the editor's duty to ensure that they A) provide accurate information and B) remove false information. I am not implying that the TVT page for Girls und Panzer is poor (it is well-written compared to some of the other pages), but experiences there have involved overly-serious editors trying to replace fact with fiction, hence my caution.

On that note, some speculation turned out to hit the nail on the head, right down to the strategies used and outcomes of the show based entirely on what had happened in the show up until that point. The examples supplied were written by someone with a reasonable background in counterinsurgency doctrine and had some familiarity with story-telling elements, accounting for why they remain realistic and ultimately predicted almost everything that happened in the final two episodes. Not all speculation is worthless: the trick is exercising caution in knowing what is reliable and what isn't

Not again. We've just been through this already. Even the "I'm an editor so I'm right" argument.

Yep, the thread has gotten to the point where we're entering circular arguments now.

I suggest retiring the place until the next OVA and its supplements come out.

That ain't happening. We've all fallen down the rabbit hole. We're all mad.

A show, about girls and tanks, has spawned discussions nonstop over the last six-odd months and over 300 pages. That works out to slightly under 2 pages a day of arguments.

OK, I just finished watching this series - in the span of the past week. And I must say... I have always been amused by the ability for a tank driver able to drift -- with a tank. Someone mixed in some Initial D here.

Oh, you can actually do it IRL; there's vids of Leopards and Abrams doing it in the snow, and a vid of a Bradley in Iraq doing a powerslide park.

True, but never let the battalion maintenance sergeant catch you doing it!

Over 6k posts, 316 pages, and yet somehow this show never got a sub-forum.

Well, the show is back in Older Series again now...

So... this should be recognizable...

The real-world tanks do have a certain charm to them, but the story still works out in a fantastical setting.

Unsurprisingly, the GuP-version of the Maus from Platz has been announced and sold out of the first run within hours.

An entire OVA dedicated to Yukari and Erwin?!?!?!

Also, a bonus: Uesaka Sumire (Nonna) performing the Russian National Anthem:

It's not over until those OVAs are all released, and current trends nowithstanding, I'd hazard a guess that OVA six will come out late June
