GIRLS RIDING TANKS DRIVING IN TO THE SUNSET BACK TO THEIR GIANT SCHOOL-SHIP CARRIER. WHY CAN’T MORE ANIME END SO PERFECTLY AS THIS?
Time to pay tribute to the heroines that fearlessly and boldly provided us with so much tanoshii over the past few months.
Hetzer’s gonna hetz. Poor Maus never stood a chance.
OH SHIT CAP’N MARIKA ON BOARD. NO WAY WE CAN LOSE WITH THAT SWAG BEHIND US.
1st years tank jousting with the Jagdtiger was amazing. The mortification of two heavy tank destroyers getting taken out by an outgunned-when-it-was-first-deployed tank wwww
YOU SHALL NOT PASS!
Tiger(P) holding the line against Kuromorimine was worthy of a medal o7o7o7o7o7
Amazing DORIFUTO match-ender is truly the stuff of legends. Automobile Club girls must be pretty jealous too.
Anzu taking the first bite. Look at how jelly Yukari is!
Mako x Sodoko OTP 4TW!
Awww…. they referenced Little Army here.
Three cheers for the champions!
Surprising! Even Shiho is actually clapping for them! Guess she’s going “Looks like blood can’t lie”.
Panzer Vor for life.
I have to admit, I came on to Girls und Panzer with almost negative expectations that this would just be some pandering anime trying to appeal to a niche audience using very specific jokes, fanservice scenes and generally zero storyline other than to push things to another week. Yes, I’m talking about you, Upotte! fans.
Instead what I got was one of the best 12 episodes of original anime ever made. Combining a ludicrous setting with a giant cast of characters, rarely forgettable and almost all likable, along with great action scenes and a true appreciation of the specialist topics the show thrives in, Girls und Panzer made for an unforgettable ride from start to finish. To tie it all neatly together was a simple, yet easy to follow story of a bunch of underdogs fighting to save something important to them, achieving glory in the process.
The icing on top of the cake that is Girls und Panzer is how charming everything is. They say the devil is in the details and once you start to delve into Garupan lore, everything makes amazingly great sense. Combine that with the individual quirks of the girls, the tanks, the world setting etc etc…. everything just seems to charmingly fun. It truly makes you want to be in the world that Garupan is set in. And then you realize you will never be able to experience the tanoshii personally and the world just seems a little bit darker every day…..
In short, watch Garupan if you haven’t yet, goddamnit! And if you’ve already did, o7. Now I will patiently await for the inevitable second season announcement. They can’t possibly let the tanoshii stop here!
