A pleasant episode even though not much happened imo. There's some bath fan-service as well as a little history of the tanks again. Just a relaxing episode imo.

Heh, exploring places can be fun occasionally also, especially in the dark.

Well, for anyone asking about how Oarai can possibly compete against Pravda and Black Forest Peak in the upcoming battles, this episode provided the best possible answer.

A non-action episode, but a nice one anyway. Very good character development and character interaction, showed team building, and ascension is well underway. Liked the way they had foreshadowed having at least three more tanks on the ship (tank numbers went up to 8), so that the are tracking them down is a nice way to both allow a natural progression, and provide more possible surprises down the road (there is no reason why there shouldn't be 10 tanks)

Thought it might turn a little more serious with how the last episode ended, was completely wrong, but it did serve to make the introduction of the grandmother more enjoyable. Miho's past is explained, as well as her failure, and her mother is introduced. Pretty much what one expected.

The director is very good with misdirection, with the title name and the commercial board, they set up the scene with Anzio so that one expected something very different from what occurred, very well done.

Looking forward to next week.

Certainly a nice episode to kickback and watch. Loved Mako and her faces when they were in the dark.

I wonder what would happen if I found something big and powerful looking monster in the dark

Anyways, This episode is really interesting and it shows that Ooarai is finally getting serious in Senshado. I cant really tell much as the subbed version isn't up yet, and my Japanese isn't anywhere near good. But from just watching, Miho's past is explain and why she initially quit Senshado, why Black Forest did't win the last tournament, Mako Granma is a shouter, and a quick look on their match with Anzio......real quick

All in all, I really enjoy this episode. Although not much action like Episode 6 and episode 4, but this episode really wants you to get up and see what will Ooarai do next.

.There's a sleeping Tiger I lurking inside Ooarai's carrier. It's worth noting that Miho previously commanded in a Tiger I.[spoiler/]

As I mentioned, it's a Tiger (P), which was the competing design that lost to the Tiger (H) aka the Tiger I for mass production. Only 5 units were completed, and only 1 Tiger (P) was sent into combat as a command tank fitted with 100mm more frontal armor for a whopping total of 200mm of protection. The rest of the 90 hulls made were converted into Ferdinand tank destroyers.

The question now is whether the example that Oarai has is the very same vehicle used as the command tank (unit 003) with the extra armor, or if it's one of the remaining 4 stock units.

It's still going to be an interesting Tiger

So the propaganda video is lying about doing tank makes you popular with boys :D

Glad they gave more clues about why the school in on ships, although it's like there's still more behind it

^watching the raw version of it for now until the subbed ones are released.

Nice that there are new tanks and upgrades to PanzerIV for Oarai in order to face Pravda and Black Forest. Glad for them.

Now they've found new tanks and a upgrade for the PzIV, they'll be a lot more powerful. Looking forward to see it with a better cannon.

I'm disappointed that the battle with Anzio were over in a few seoncds. What a waste of Anchovy.

I was wondering when they're ever going to search the rest of the ship. Looks like the girls found a Tiger. I still can't get enough of Mako's neko ringtone. It's just so funny hearing it.

Are those tanks that Miho was fighting against in her old school T-34's? They sort of look like them to me.

I was hoping to see battle with Anzio, sure result was easy to predict but it would be fun.

And upgrade at last - they won't have to go with that ancient weaponry... so they will have great assault gun, one good tank, failed prototype and 2 x ancient weaponry?

or at least I hope they will make this change as their old tanks would look rather sad against T-34

Is Saki Maruyama (丸山 紗希) your favorite GaruPan character? Surname: 丸山 = Maruyama. Given name: 紗希 = Saki.

She is the loader on the Rabbit Team in the M3 Lee. All of the members of that team are first year students. The M3 Lee has two big guns. The biggest (75 mm) gun is on the side. The 37 mm gun is on the top. Saki loads rounds into the 37 mm gun. The shells are 223 mm long. The maximum rate of fire is 25 rounds per minute. So Saki must be in excellent shape.

Some people out there in cyberspace are huge, huge fans of Saki, as you can see from these pictures which show all the times when Saki appears:

I hope you have no trouble clicking to see these images. But if you run into problems, simply cut and paste the URL into another browser and it should work fine! Sorry, but there are some repetitions in case links later get broken.

Here is a 7-minute video which is 100% about Saki:

This next picture is 1362 x 765 pixels: A great wall poster?

Up until this point in the series, she has not spoken a single line. Japanese Wikipedia says that there is no voice actress for her. Even so, let's hope that there will be one episode where she is the main character.

Pretty sure the Anzio match will be in the manga and/or a BD only episode.

In any case, good episode. My guess is that against Pravda the group from the OP that we haven't seen yet will take over the Char B1, Volleyball will use the upgraded PzIV and Team A will use the Tiger.

I love that someone finally called one of the historian team girls out on their inaccuracies.

Who are these girls? Is that ever explained?

A blog earlier today from the GaruPan director ( Mizushima / 水島努 ‏/ @tsuki_akari ) described them as 水産科のセーラー女子 which seems to literally mean "sailor girls who are studying fisheries". But fishermen don't wear sailor suits. Also, giant converted aircraft carriers aren't used as fishing boats.
