Plus the StuG III took out two of Black Forest's tanks already. And with the Hetzer already in their lines, the StuG advancing scared the crap out of most of them.

This was not intended to be History Team's Moment. Can't be compared. Besides they got one two episodes ago too as they buried their tank perfectly in what seems to be seconds.

If anything, this would likely be the high point of the Maus. After this, its kill efficiency will fall to nothing, or in the worst case, it will suffer the indignity of somehow getting killed by Oarai despite its super armor being its only strength (even more than its gun, which is apparently actually less penetrative than the 88mm/71)
The Student Council had another pretty great moment or two in this episode.

I suspect without 3 months of waiting and building up excitment for the characters I like and have been following since last Fall to have one last hurrah in episode 11/12 it wouldn't have been such a let down to see 2 out of 3 of the characters on the show I like most not do much and then get jobbed before the finale.

A Maus? Seriously, a friggen Maus?
This just got really silly real fast.
I really thought they would not go this route. Kind of disappointed that they did..

Maybe it was because I watched all Episodes 1-10.5 in one go, but I wasn't at all shocked about the Maus. It is only the logical conclusion to BF's strategy.

In a way, I like it. If they actually fought fair, I might actually have pangs about Novice Team winning over Veteran. Now I can just wish for their defeat.

from what I saw and this is my opinion(so I can be wrong)

It seemed like Maho was running her tanks like they were up against Pravda. With the use of their heavy tanks and the small strategies with them, Miho OTOH clearly knew what her sister was going to pull off aswell, so the Prez teams placement was well set up,

I'm seeing this is a battle of the wits later down the track between the 2 sisters (Maybe Erika too), right now the Maus problem is present and when that thing rolled out, I said to myself "get fxcked.... no way...", the scene where KMMs tanks were rolling around with the Erika March BGM playing already showed that Ooarai was in deep trouble, the Maus rolling out to Panzerlied just topped that,

+100 Points to SoDoKo for standing up to the behemoth and flipping it off / giving it the bird / telling it to get fxcked

however like many of you, I agree that the Hippo team should've bolted away from there, but do remember their emotional thought probably came 1st and wanted to stand up for the Duck/Mallard team, I Don't blame them for that

11/10 Good episode to come back to overall,

A hallmark of this show is the little things which really bring it home.

-Tankers bitching about handling track (so true! )
-Using a rope as a messenger cable for a towing cable
-The Rabbit team members looking at each other and deciding to sacrifice themselves (by volunteering to be left behind) to allow the rest of their friends to escape
-Panzerlied playing while the KMM German armor is rolling through the fields


And does anyone else think that Maho has a really nice voice?

Maho is voiced by the one and only Tanaka Rie, that's why

Hey, at 9:35, is that a Girls und Panzer food wrapper/package/something that Anzu is holding!?

Product placement!

Let's hope our poor Type89 won't get shot by MAUS.

By the way, none of surviving Ooarai tanks get immobized right?


Random prediction : Saki will talk in the next ep.

I thought there is nothing sillier than Miho can float.

Or is that a norm in Senshadou?

Yeah. They've changed since that time they ran from their tank against St Gloriana.

It's not. It's actually an illustrated book called "Moeyo! Sensha Gakkou", a book about tanks and tank operation created by artist/military enthusiast Nogami Takeshi, who is also currently working as one of the creative staff for the Girls Und Panzer anime.





The book has actually been referenced multiple times in the anime before, the earliest being in episode 2 when the freshmen were reading books in the library.

T-54 or Centurion.

As long as developed in 1945 at least right?

Look like you still have a lot to learn about Nishizumi style

Also, Miho still need to jump about 2 m further to break world record.

Men's Records
World Mike Powell 8.95 m
Olympic Bob Beamon 8.90 m

Women's Records
World Galina Chistyakova 7.52 m
Olympic Jackie Joyner 7.40 m

Let's try not to think about the fact that athletes only need to jump once and typically use ~20 strides. Miho uses more like 5 and does it every time.

Y'know, despite their "redemption" moments and Momo's amusing antics, I can't bring myself to like the student council. The show puts them in a neither "here nor there" situation for me. If you like Miho, then the student council acted like a complete ass to her in the beginning. They then are shown to be arrogant but completely ineffectual. Their redemption comes a tad late..

Yeah, I can kind of see what you're saying. On the other hand, perhaps now that they've seen what Miho can do for them and the school, they regret their treatment of (but probably not their choice to coerce) Miho.

I still think Momo is a dork.

They are certainly growing, but to be fair to those poor bunnies, as of Ep4 they didn't manage to get in a valuable edge that the others got in the first sim fight - actually getting hit (admittedly, this was because they chose not to stay around to get hit in Ep3)

I mean, it is entirely logical to be skeptical of the concept that a layer of "carbon" so thin the tank's appearance was unchanged will not only stop all comers, but protect from serious shock ... unless you've already experienced it.

So when their fears were aroused by rattling caused the ridiculous number of misses, thus reminding them of the actual power of the rounds in a way watching them hit from afar could not, it is probably reasonable for them to run away from the tank
