Well in the fanfic tankery is the west is co gendered because tank warfare in the west is more widespread than in the east. They didn't care about the gender because they needed the manpower.

That guy who is saying that piece to Erika and Maho ? His great great grandfather was one of the first tankers of WWI. His great grandfather was a tanker in WWII. His grandfather was a tanker in the Vietnam War and his father is a tanker that recently fought in a recent military intervention in a civil war in a nation in the Middle East where he lost his right leg and was awarded the Canadian Victoria Cross.

Odd since it will be "Current Series" again in less than a month.


As for the fiction, we still need to see the remaining two episodes before we can be sure what is going on between Miho and Maho, and why Erika has such a large axe to grind with Miho.

Girls und Panzers did fairly well on release of volume 2. At least for the Blu-ray release. DVD sales were sort of low. Combined I think it comes in overall at fourth place behind Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki, Space Battleship Yamato 2199, and Kuroko no Basket.

Indeed, such is often the case.

If there are guys, they're in the bureaucracy of the Federation rather than being actual tankers.

And even if there were any male tankers, there's likely a strict delineation between "combat" tank driving and "sport", which Senshado technically is (apart from being a martial art).

Hmm... Speaking of fanfiction ideas, it would be interesting to find out whether or not Miho or Maho have any aunts. Shiho being a coldhearted jerk is a given, but the interpretation to her place in her own family (as the eldest or second daughter) puts a different slant to her jerkassery.

I think you should consider if Shiho was in earshot of that mans statement... that would make a big difference in the girls reaction.

...What. Someone needs to translate this OVA. Now. Usagi-san team just gained a whole bunch of points with me, and I already liked them a fair bit.

Here is the idea.

Anyway the story idea I had is introducing a co gendered international
academy ( but still primarily a Japanese Academy ) Ocean's Blue
(academy warship). It had transfer students from
various nations. It recently introduced Tankery because they wanted to
offer more extra curriculum activities for it's students. The Tankery
in this academy is unique because it allows both males and females in
it. Somethings thats frowned upon by the other academies especially
the fanatical Black Forrest Peak College.

The main character is male teenager named Christopher 'Chris' Evans.
His real family name is actually Richardson. The Richardson family has
a long history with tanks. Chris's great-great- grandfather was one of
the first tankers in WW1 ( he survived the war and moved to Canada ),
his great grandfather was a tanker in WWII ( commanded Sherman tanks
in Italy and then in Normandy in a Sherman Firefly ), his grandfather fought in the Vietnam
War as a tanker and his father fought in a recent war in the middle
east as a tanker where he was awarded the Canadian Victoria Cross for
his valor and bravery ( he also lost his right leg ).

Usually when your family has such a long history with tankery thats
something to be proud of. But Chris doesn't see it that way, it's not
that he hates tankery and thinks that it's for girls, he loves tanks
and is into tankery. It's just that ever since he was born when other
people ( other than family ) look at him instead of seeing "him" they
see him as the son of a renowned military family and his family's
legacy and think that since he's a direct descendant of such a well
known tankery family he would some day do something that would live up
to his family's honor. He doesn't want that. He is his own person, he
wants to be judged by his own actions and accomplishments. He wants
stand out on his own. And not within his family's shadow. So he had a
talk with his father, changed his family name to his mother's ( she
passed away when he was in elementary school, cancer ) and transferred
to the international school.

When he joined the Tankery course some of the females kept giving him
and the few other males the odd look. Some of them considered allowing
males into Tankery to be sacrilege. But not all of them were like
that, some ( including the instructor who is from the US Army )
welcomed them warmly.

They had 5 tanks. 1 Comet A34, 1 BT-7M, 1 StuG IV, 1 Sherman Firefly
and 1 Canadian Grizzly I. The Instructor had a practice competition (
last tank standing wins ) to see what the newbies were made of. The
free for all match was in a tight urban city environment.

Chris commanded the Comet. And after learning to work together with
the crew they defeated the other tanks and won. He earned the boys and
girls respect.

What do you think so far ?

Consider it Spam with eggs, sausage, bacon, and spam....wait....


I wonder if that bit was originally written for the OVA or if it was the actresses adlib based on what they were talking about in the first place, followed by a rewrite to add it in.

Sometime, I really wonder if Usagi-san team members really just 1 year younger than Miho and friends? Their personality are like elementary school students.

At least, Azusa and Ayumi (who look most mature in their group) should act more mature.

Don't get me wrong, I like how they are like now but I just wondering.
