Girls und Panzer 11

Girls und Panzer

Nishizumi Miho-style Panzerfahren, no one gets left out from the tanoshii!

Oh man, what can I say about this episode? It was well worth the three month wait for sure. The first half of the episode, involving some amazingly good tactical use of smokescreen and terrain by Ooarai plus the Hetzer running around causing chaos in the lines already made the episode for me. I honestly couldn’t believe it was just HALF the episode at that point. Totally lost track of time in the tanoshii.

Then we had Miporin pulling the epic SENSHA WO KAKERU SHOUJO to save the Rabbit Team’s ass…. I am not ashamed to admit I shed a few manly tears on that scene. NO MAN OR WOMAN SHALL BE LEFT OUT OF THE TANOSHII!

Girls und Panzer

The Nishizumi family sure made good use of that GERMAN SUPER SCIENCE!

Of course, Ooarai are still the underdogs and the show has to make sure this doesn’t look like a cakewalk for them…

Girls und Panzer

OHSHITOHSHITOHSITHOSHIT IS THAT A FUCKING MAUS

Yeah, that’s going a bit overkill there Kuromorimine. Still, gotta love Yukari’s reaction to that…

Girls und Panzer

“OH MY FUCKING GOD IT’S A FUCKING MAUS AND WE’RE FUCKING FUCKED BUT OH GOD IT’S A FUCKING MAUS CAN I GO HUG IT?!”

Her face is totally conveying that. Seriously.

Also, the awesome team award for this episode goes to the newly included Leopon team in the unwieldy Tiger (P). The Automobile Club girls are seriously awesome.

Girls und Panzer

Engine repair on-the-move!

Girls und Panzer

Bridge-breaker technique!

All that’s left now is for them to pull off a DORIFUTO. And I’m sure they’ll find some way to pull it off next week! Why isn’t it Monday yet?!!

    “Overkill” was what they’d already brought against Oarai. Bringing in the heaviest superheavy tank EVER made on top of that? Is there a word for something that’s more overkill than overkill?

    I know, I know! They want to “befriend” the fuck out of Ooarai!

    That was a blast.

    Let’s hope the weight doesn’t get to Ooarai.

    Not just her expression, Yukari’s voice was truly oozing with WANT at the sight of that Maus. I found it so goddamn sexy.

    Seems like the skin over the engine would be damned hot by that point, wouldn’t you think? Kneeling like that would be painful.

    Looks like it’s time for Miho to call in an air strike. Who has the P-47s?

    Great ep. Miho sure pulled some interesting jumping physics during her river rescue.

    They totally wasted 20 seconds!!!

    The Maus was sideways and they were point-blank range, the tracks, wheels, sides, and fuel tank was in plain sight! Ffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuu

    @CorporateRat

    15 of those seconds were spent staring at the Maus.

    After having fondled one captured by the Russians, when I visited Moscow back in 2003, I know how Yukari feels.

    It has pretty good side armor as can be seen in the close up of a penetration test the Russians did after capture, so I doubt that any shots apart from the Tiger (P) would have made any significant damage. You can also see some penetration tests done on the front armor which as far as I remember wasn’t penetrated.

    @kyon22
    According to what some who say they have read them, the rules are that anything is allowed if it was built before the end of the war. Even a prototype (which the Maus was, it was never operational).

    Actually, the prototypes are functional.
