It is possible the engine would eventually give out, but that would be a delayed flag pop, where as the shot to the Tiger's engine was immediate engine out. The Type 89 had as much damage to her tread and wheels from the IS-2, but didn't pop before the T-34 that took a shell to the belly.

Spoiler for manga spoilers...:

TBH, while this was the ending that almost everyone expected, I was hoping more for a double-KO end...

I also believe she went in the trap deliberately and ignored Erika.

But she wasn't just going to let Miho win, she wanted her to earn it, which she did.

I don't recall being able to get that performance out of a Hetzer engine, either.

Typical Cold War B-flick.

At least Shiho applaud at the end. I thought she was still mad, mad enough to slap Maho for losing.

I think Erika just has a great respect for Maho, but I don't see anything beyond that.

Personally, I think she is infatuated. There are a lot of things Erika would forgive Maho for, but not Miho.

YE GODS people! Frakking ten pages of posts in one day! Show some bloody restraint!

I don't even remember what I was going to say in here because it just took me an hour to wade through the mess you've all made of this thread.

Whatever. Shows over. We won. Everyone was awesome. Bonus to the bunnies. Episodes need a proper group to translate them. I want the DVDs/BRDs/whatever. Give me more of this series.

I hope we get to see Maho and Shiho's meeting after the battle. Maybe in the last OAV.
I am just not satisfied with little smirk on her face... was she really proud of Miho or was she just recovering from shock and realizing that she still gets to claim this win as hers as Miho's Mom and original teacher?

Basically I want to hear her verbalize that she was wrong...

And Maho is such a Siscon that she doesn't notice...

Did the Vallentines day 4 koma that showed Erika being left holding a box of chocolates because Maho ditched practice to give chocolat to Miho ever get posted here?

I know right? Shiho is a winner either way.

Don't you just love loopholes?

TBH, I was hoping Maho would give Miho a hug at the end of the match. Imagine what that would have done.

I would still say Shiho is still disgusted with Miho, that smirk was the irony she was feeling at the small spark of maternal pride she was feeling with Miho combined with the shame at the Nishizumi school being defeated on national television like that.

I'm sure she'd recognize that Miho is skilled, though she'd probably slit her own throat before saying it out loud. I'd say a Mother/Daughter reconciliation is a long ways away assuming Miho is even interested since she has her own life now that she's saved her school.

I'd be amused though to see Maho break her pokerface long enough to rub the loss in Shiho's face that she's proud of her sister for winning.

Wonderfully executed final duel. Though I think such maneuvers and tactics seems too improbable, It sure makes amazing an entertaining action. I wonder what would Oarai would do if Black Forest fielded an all Panzer Maus group in the next tournament.

I've finally crossed the finish line, and as far as I'm concerned, I am very satisfied with the ending. The episode kept me on the edge of my seat the same way Dark Knight Rises and Skyfall did, which is remarkably rare considering that it is an anime.

While a poll is unavailable here, I will immediately and without hesitation, assign the entire series a score of 9.0 of 10. Girls und Panzer represents what anime should be: original, refreshing and most importantly, fun. The series also reminds us of an old adage, to never judge a book by its cover, and from the comments I've seen when the series was announced, compared to the comments I see now, I believe that the series has successfully captured the viewers' interests and dispelled any prior misconceptions.

With respect to future directions, this first season ends in such a manner that if, there were to be no sequels, the ending would remain immensely satisfying. Of course, if sequels are to come, the set-up would also permit it. I am largely neutral on this point. While we are on the matter of the future, I do not believe I have any other things to say about the anime for the present. I am left with the satisfaction of having watched an excellent series, and perhaps more so, with the satisfaction of seeing Ooarai win. I will depart and leave behind my personal reaction to having seen my major predictions being realised.

Girls und Panzer, International Edition: Enter the red-headed tsundere, is actually very likely. Emi and Miho DID make a promise to meet again when both of them have finally found their own way of Sensha-do, which Miho just did. It begs to be seen if Emi has as well, but as Ithekro pointed out several pages back, this reunion likely will happen amidst a clash of a LOT of German steel.
