Both shows are about cute girls doing manly things and facing serious challenges along the way in accomplishing their goals. In Girls und Panzer, girls are competing with each other in tanks, while in Haifuri, girls are learning to become sailors to do naval patrolling. Also, both shows are written by Reiko Yoshida.
Both have almost exclusive female casts. Schoolgirls performing fairly realistic military battles featuring real ships and tanks. Both lighthearted on the surface but with some more serious tones at times.
WoT vs Worlds of Warships-what you like more?
Basically the same, some fuwa-fuwa girls participating in epic tank/warship battles. The main difference that in GuP it's sport and in Haifuri it's reality.
Two stories about a group of high school girls participating in combat/military related activities. While the overall tone of the two anime can be quite different at times, many aspects do mirror each other. Lots of high action scenes during moments of combat, plenty of cute/moe moments between the characters, tiny flakes of fan service here and there, and a strong focus on friendship, camaraderie, and overcoming obstacles together as a team.
Both are anime about High School girls commanding machines of war with cute clumsy girls screwing up from time to time followed by giant shells being fired from cannons.
While Haifuri takes a more serious plot route, the tank battles in Girls und Panzer are non-lethal and more playful in nature.
The battles of these series are so intense!Both series are full of cute girls to love.The main characters have a strategic mindset in battles and they always care for others ending up always saving them and abandoning their duties.
Both are pretty similar. One has high school girls operating tanks and the other has high school girls operating ships. If you liked Girls und Panzer, I definitely think you will like High School Fleet, I actually enjoyed it more.
Both MC are very simillar, as well as their crewmates.
Both anime are pretty much the same, except Haifuri doesn't have sport elements and contain some serious battles. Except for that, both anime are the same and give the same vibe.
Basically Girls und Panzer but with ships. Military setting where a bunch of cute school girls are put in charge of serious military hardware. I'm no expert on tanks or ships, but both shows appear to try to be serious about portraying actual piloting their tanks/ships, requiring all the crew to work together with a leader who is a very good person but lacks confidence in themself.
You cannot watch one without thinking abour the other. I really liked this one's atmosphere, which is as likable as GuP's.
A very similar plot , although tanks are replaced with warships. MC is also captain of her crew, all teenage girls, who fought enemies, not for competition as in Girls und Panzer, but for wipe out an epidemic.....I won't say anymore
Some of the main characters look, feel, and act similar. Also, in both shows, the main girl leads the team with her great skill. She also feels inferior to her mother and sister who lives separate from her. Her sister is very well known, and at the end of both series, the main character finally has the courage to face her sister. Also, both clubs are being resurrected by upperclassmen, and there are other members that are extremely talented as well.
If you like GuP, you'll adore Saki! And if you liked saki, you will appreciate, and probably love GuP as well :)
Both protagonists are drawn back into an activity she had come to dislike while growing up, finding new friends and a renewed interest. Both look up to their older sisters but do not have a good relationship with them.
1. FMC (Saki, Miho) is genius at said activities, but refused to do it first due to dramatic past that has something to do with water.
2. Their girl friend (Nodoka, Yukari) is a fan of said club activities.
3. Both have 'estranged' older sister (Teru, Maho).
4. There were similarty between Saki's chars and GuP chars.
Both leads in these two animes hated their 'respective roles in which they had alot of potential for, they had exceptional skill yet they refuse to take on that role because they both went through traumatic events of it in their past(s).
Both are battle anime featuring groups of girls competing to be the best in the nation.
Tanks with Girls und Panzer and Mahjong with Saki.
The main protagonist's rival is her own older sister who is more experienced in the craft. A member of the group is obsessed with tanks/mahjong. I'm sure there are other parallels but basically Girls und Panzer is Saki with tanks.
Both series features a young group of girls together in an activity that they embrace and are skilled at.
Both series has a school life setting where there is comedy, drama, and competitions. These competitions puts the girls' skills at test against other competitors.
Friendship and strategies are involved in both series that allows the characters to stay one step ahead of their opponents.
Both series also features some nice soundtrack.
Both MC a reluctant to play in something they're good at because of something that happened in the past. Saki- Mahjong, GuP- Panzers
Both the girls also have a somewhat strained relationship with their older sisters.
In both series, the club tries to reach nationals
Both are entertaining to watch with all the action, so have fun!
both protagonists are child protegees of their games. both have sisters that they look up to that are relatively famous for the games, but do not have a good relationship with because of an incident. both do not like the game at first because of their childhood, but are pulled into it and realize how fun it can be. both are a team aiming for the nationals to face their sisters. both are about how the team works together and their motivation. both have some yuri. only difference is that saki is mahjong and girls und panzer is panzer (tank martial arts)
- main characters really good at the sport they're playing
- have sister who are at the level of pros, and are on bad terms with them
- aim for national tourney with friends
- main characters are pretty much all girls
-Both are enjoyable to watch
Main character is a girl, who doesn't like a certain game despite being very good at it. This has something to do with her family, mainly her older sister. In her school, she gets dragged to a team, where she makes new friends and gets to like the game. Then they go to a tournament, meet many opponents (cute girls) from other schools and play against all of them, while making their way to the final. We get to know girls from different teams, who are very diverse and likable (some of them even more than the main characters).
Even though Saki isn't action-oriented, mahjong matches are equally intense as tank battles thanks to high amount of special effects and superpower-like abilities of the characters. Overall, Girls & Panzer is more, let's say kids-friendly, as fights aren't really violent and relations between characters are very kind. Saki is also rather light-hearted, yet contains a little bit of fanservice and borderline yuri moments. read more
Girls school setting with some combat scenarios. I think both are worth watching, but I'll leave that up to you. Please don't confuse this with Upotte!! though. Besides the firearms, the similarities are few and far between.
Girl transfers to a new school and somehow ends up in a military themed club pretty quickly. Shoot outs ensue and eventually the club fights against their counterparts from other schools.
Girls und Panzer is far superior though, just saying.
There's definitely a similar vibe from both series. Essentially, they involve a group of girls participating in a military like activity. The only difference here is the type of weapons used. In Girls und Panzer, it's tanks but in Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C³-bu, it deals with guns.
There are exciting shootouts that requires strategy, teamwork, and a little luck to achieve victory. Additionally, the colorful cast of diverse characters are fun to watch. The series is lighthearted so expect some comedy that also takes place in a school life setting.
The action is solid though and executed quite well.
The two anime both start with a female character who joins a particular gathering that involves themselves with dangerous, yet fun military related activities. One about tanks and the other about airsoft. Another element is that all the main characters are female.
Both anime deal with girls engaging in very nontraditional activities involving guns, violence, and explosions...while somehow retaining their overall cuteness. The overall feel of the anime and the characters are also very similar.
Both involve moe girls in a military setting. Strike Witches contains fanservice and poignant moments. On the other hand, Girls und Panzer has a happier, lighter mood, and slice-of-life feel. Strike Witches is based on real WWII planes and takes place in the air. Girls und Panzer involves WWII tanks on the ground. The fights in Strike Witches are quick and graceful, while the battles in Girls und Panzer are long and strategic. Both have great action and cute, funny moments. Strike Witches tells the story of a war to save the planet from alien ships. Girls und Panzer is a competition between schools. The main characters are similar because they both are opposed to fighting at first, until their comrades pull them in. read more
Both Anime consist of military aspects. Girls und Panzer goes on the tank side and Strike Witches goes on the plane side. But the only main difference is there is no magic in Girls und Panzer. Personally I believe that characters have the same characteristics and also play very similar roles, making them both very close in comparison.
Girls who have high morale and great strategic skills can lead their comrades straight to victory. The series is known to have any World War 2 content in it such as the setting the show, or tanks that are used in combat. It features an all female cast that usually fight with their teammates, which they have a high morale of encouraging each other to win the fight. The male characters are often minor and have little presence in the series.
The difference is that Strike Witches has several fan service scenes, and uses a suit that is aerial assault dogfight style fighting aliens. Girls und Panzar uses ground tank forces, and it is a competition show.  read more
Fire, action and a lot of adrenaline are contained in both series! Strike Witches is not exactly the same of course, but remains the way allude nations without say the name specific of the country in fact, culture differences among the characters and so the military issues remains, funny in their own way but indeed very enjoyable.
From light tanks to fast battleships, army to navy warfare, land to sea, but still retaining the same cute only girls vibe, gap moe/hardened lolis handling heavy armaments, learn world war II history,, witness the same female camaraderie, love and friendship, and still being able to attempt creating one of your favorite yuri one true pairing. Good stuff will happen
World War 2 theme, in kancolle Japanese battleship becomes moe schoolgirls (what more can you ask?) fighting against monster ships, and slice of life of boats. Girls Und Panzer is about moe girls driving highly detailed ww2 tanks fighting against other tanks. Both of them feature slice of life, comedy, and action. Perfect for military otaku
Sora no Woto and Girls und Panzer are both very unique series. This uniqueness is not only in concept or setting but also storytelling, most notably, the way they choose to transmit a message.
At first glace, one will probably guess this recommendation is based on the fact both series involve "girls and military" with a small appeal on the moe/cute side.
Indeed. They both paid a lot of attention to detail on machinery, uniforms, insignia, models, etc. displayed, making of them very faithful representations of their originals. Those familiar with Gunslinger Girl's perfectly reproduced guns can expect a similar mechanic & visual quality.
While this is all true, and the alluring setup is a plus, the reasons for them to be similar is far beyond that.
Underneath the easygoingness of Sora no Woto lies a very touching coming-of-age tale, with these girls struggling to live a common "nichijou" life, while moving on from traumatic experiences on their pasts and the sorrowful situation of the world. As the series move on, you get to know more of them and learn more about their personalities/stories but it always comes back to a recurrent theme: friendship and the strength we all have in ourselves.
The same is presented on Girls und Panzer. Undeniably in a more lighthearted setup, with a lot more "cute girls doing cute things" gimmicks but still with its darker moments and the same central theme.
Ultimately, both can be considered as healing stories as they end with optimistic views and leaves that comfy after-glow.
If you're looking for a similar story to the one you just watched, just a bit more serious (in Sora no Woto's case) or more lighter and carefree (GuP) definitely check 'em out! read more
Both series has a lighthearted way of presenting itself with a cast of young girls involved with the military.
Both series has action, drama, comedy, and some emotions.
Both series also has some interesting insight on military itself.
Cute, moe girls with a military theme. Sora no Woto has a much darker and more melancholic atmosphere than Girls und Panzer, but both series are heartwarming with likeable, compelling protagonists working together in a team, and strong atmosphere and worldbuilding.
Both series are generic that involves cute girls doing cute things dealing with the usage of military equipment.
Both series features a dominant female cast that have contains of stark personalities. At the same time, they each have their own skills and abilities of what they do.
Both series has action and comedy that also has school life themes.
* Both anime deals with weaponry/military vehicles...
* Both are ” Cute Girls doing War things”
* Both animes have mostly ”only girls” cast..
* Competitive schools.. weird rules..etc
* Both have not very awesome character designs
The main character is very knowledgeable in tanks/music. She doesn't want to join this club due to a past issue. Her new friends convince her to join said club as they too have taken interests in it. One series has all girl cast. The other a mix cast.
Despite the starkly different premises (tanks and music), these two shows are surprisingly similar. For starter, they both have schoolgirl protagonists that are well versed in their respective field but deliberately chose a school that is only mediocre in terms of tankery/music. Despite that, their respective school has a big dream of winning the national tournament. The protagonists are reluctant to join at first, but becoming more committed to the cause gradually. What follows is a story of their struggles to attain that dream.
Last but not least, the people who made these shows clearly did their research. You will pick up many interesting bits of knowledge of tanks/musical instruments by watching these two shows. read more
These might seem different - but they are more similar than you'd think. In truth, Girls und Panzer is actually just a sports series with an all-female cast and a rather unique sport. The music, overall feeling, characters, their personalities, and just about everything else feel almost the exact same. Both also focus on an underdog team (in both cases they start out not having a clue what they are doing) overcoming big odds, getting to know each other, and working against social standing. They also both lack much of any fanservice or pandering, surprisingly.
Lovable characters learning a sport, learning to work together as a team, and admirably pursuing success for a higher goal. In one it's to save their school, in the other it's to break the constraints of tradition. Supporting characters may resist, obstruct, and belittle, but some of them eventually become acceptant and supportive. These are simple, straightforward stories, full of warmth. Even predictable happy moments can offer great satisfaction to a viewer who cares about the characters.
Sport show with no romance and very little yuri context.
Fictional sports established on sci-fi elements.
Hype and GARR at the climax of the sports.
GuP plays a team game while AoKana is about solo.
Each anime is based around a sport using vehicles that would otherwise be seen as military grade combat weapons, though Girls und Panzer is based on WWII tanks, It is also set in a future setting. Infinite Stratos uses Mech units in the place of tanks and like Girls und Panzer are only piloted by girls, The difference being Infinite Stratos is based on a male lead being able to use the mechs. Whilst Girls und Panzer is based on a group of girls recruiting others into their team and joining a competition.
To be blatant, this is Girls und Panzer with a guy. The only other significant differences are:
1. It is set in the much more distant future (as far as I can tell)
2. The characters are of college age instead of middle/high-school age
3. Close friendships which are formed in GuP are substituted with romance
4. Instead of Panzers they have IS
Overall, think of Girlz +1 guy und IS
For someone looking for a show on developing leadership skills and moral resolve, look no further. These two, full of action and fun (more so for und Panzer) are very much worth one's time and attention . Albeit both are a bit far out in accordance to theme.
Both Pirates and Panzer have great character development, while not necessarily similar on face value, they struck the same cord with me.
Also, i just really like girls working together to achieve goals! All that moe and such
Both K-On! and Girls und Panzer soely focus on girls together in a club in high school and have high school slice of life parts as well as their respective main themes of music or tanks. Both practicing and performing in competitions and enjoying life eating out and dealing with life's situations.
In both K-ON! & Girls und Panzer people band together with the hopes of reaching the top. At first reaching the top seems like an impossible task as they are faced with multiple problems along the way, as each of the groups grow at what first seemed an impossible task then starts to seem possible with enough time and effort. As time passes and they continue towards their goal of reaching the top they start to get noticed and more people start supporting them in their journey to the top.
Main characters are all girls. The schools face the problem of shutting down unless main characters do something for their school. In Love Live, girls are trying to prevent the school from shutting down through their performance as school idols. In Girls und Panzer, girls are trying to save their school by operating tanks and win the tournament. Two settings with two different approaches both trying to conquer the same goal. Love Live is great for those who likes music, and Girls und Panzer is great for those who likes action packed machinery fighting.
Although one is land based fighting, and the other is air based, they are both about girls that are experts in handling their heavy artillery that most would think only guys would be interested in. Also, even though both have competitions to show off their skills, Sky Girls is much more than that - these girls are actually involved in a war.
GuP is much lighter than Sky Girls. If you loved GuP, you will adore Sky Girls. If you liked Sky Girls, you'll love GuP. I do think that Sky Girls is better, however they are both good anime series ;D
If you really liked or fell in love with the brown-haired main girl from Loups=Garous and liked her cuteness/shyness and looks-like-she's-gonna-cry personality, then I highly recommend that you watch Girls und Panties—I mean Girls und Panzer... The main character has the same short brown hair like the main chick from Loups=Garous. Plus, her personality is cute, shy, lonely, and in need for affection.
So bottom line: If you "fell in love" with the brown hair chick, go watch at least the first episode of Girls und Panzer. Oh, and this girl tends to blush, so you'll see your female friends blush too.
Beautiful and independent girls and tanks match perfectly. Lovely and passionate girls and sidecars also match remarkably good. These two shows offer us a great sense of rivalry and different types of relationships. Awe-inspiring machines are in the background, completing the protagonist's sundry natures. Although "Girls und Panzer" is much more critically approved, "Two Car" is well worth a shot, too.
Shuumatsu no Izetta:
Set in world war two so if you like the tank play in Girls und Panzer im sure you'd like Shuumatsu no Izetta, Its about a witch in world war two fighting for a fictional duchy set in the west of Austria (the french controlled Post war zone) and you can tell from the countrys armies there is a very strong french influence from the uniform resembling the WW1 french uniform in colour to the fact they even use the Renault FT-17 Light tank seemingly as their main battle tank. It has a witch using a PTSD-41 as a magic flying broom, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!
Girls und Panzer:
A bunch of cute girls riding around in tanks blowing shit up... Whats there not to love? from what i can tell the tanks and the way the girls crew the tanks seem to be pretty historically accurate which is great and the combat seems to be quite fluent and is extremely fun to watch! My only real issue is that they live in cities on aircraft carriers... for some reason that annoys the hell out of me! read more
Both use a aspect of warfare and turn it into a fun sport and sometimes goes into the fine details of the tools at hand. For one, it's knowledge of tanks in WWII, for the other, Mobile Suits and other items from the giant Gundam Franchise(s). They both have MCs who are soon aiming to be the best at their sport. Each sometimes uses clever tactics to try and get a advantage, with varying results. They also both have a quirky sense of humor (Humliating costumes for defeat in one, while the other has tsundre-style flirting mid-battle and other Gundam Jokes).
Non Non Biyori has a greater focus on character development due to the smaller cast, but both shows are about groups of schoolgirls and the bonds between them, and both have plenty of feel-good charm to boot! :)
While the plot of these two are completely different, there are some similarities,
- main character is the commander of a group, during battle, he/she commands others to do things and outwits the opponent
- both use machines, tank in GUP, and Nightmares in C geass
- during battle the atmosphere is similar, but completely diff outside of battle
In a world where war is a sport, death is near impossible, and everyone is cute, girls (and boys too in Dog Days) battle each other in all out war against friends and rivals for the sake of pure competition
Both of these shows have a similar setup for the lead female where she leaves a prestigious group because of their group's ruthless ways and is determined to never participate in the activity again. But she end up returning to the activity with a startup team that's more about friendship than results. Of course, the major difference is that WUG is all about singing and being an idol, while GUP is all about action with girls battling with tanks.
On the surface, there is too much similarities but in both series, there is quite a lot I found in common.
Both series involves a group of characters participating in an activity from a school environment. There is that sense of competition and strive to succeed among each member of the teams.
The background is lighthearted and it takes practice to succeed for the characters. It is surprisingly realistic and portrays the activities they do in a more definite and profound way.
The main female characters from both series also share similar personalities.
"War game" between countries and fun to watch war tactics.
If you followed the discussion for each episode, you'll see that the fans has a lot of knowledge to share too, going far outside of the stuffs presented in the anime itself.
Nice attention to the details that would add to the rewatch value after gaining more insight to that episode.
They even have staff member doing dancing to the animation staff for reference. :D
The difference being Horizon has a lot more political theme into it compared to the more light hearted Girls & Panzer.
Also, Girls & Panzer sets the bar high by aiming for the geeks, that make sloppy accuracy even more unforgiveable. read more
Thought the premise couldn't be more diferent, both series has that power to pop up a smile in your face no matter how bad your day is going.
Also, neither of them strikes you in the very first episode; you need to watch 2 or 3 in order to fall in love with the series
You'll just find yourself weirdly and helplessly attracted to the anime although both may sound stupid at first.
With that said, the magnet ability of AKB0048 is definitely higher than Girls and Panzer though.
Both animes are about a group of girls doing something they love - while in Girls und Panzer is about tankery, Gochuumon is about cafes and rabbits. Both have their moments of comedy (although I think there is more in Gochuumon, due to Panzer having more of a focus on the competitive nature of tankery), and are entertaining in similar ways. All in all I think if you like one, you will like the other, since they both give off the same feel.
Though a bit different for Girls und Panzer is a bit lighter, sweet and features younger characters while Senjou no Valkyria, or Valkyria Chronicles in English, is more serious and features older characters, both shows can give you the action and enjoyment that you're looking for with some drama included.
While the plot of these two are completely different, there are some similarities. The main character is the commander of a group. During battle, he/she commands others to do things and outwits the opponent. Both use machines—tanks in GUP and Nightmares in Code Geass. During the battles, the atmosphere is similar, but the shows are completely different outside of the battles.
National stereotypes (or girls acting out national stereotypes, as is the case for girls und panzer) fighting in a tournament. Difference is Girls und Panzer stays as a tournament while G Gundam turns into a save the world thing at the end.
people are roccomending Girls und Panzer for the first season of K-ON.. so I put the second, because there is Azusa in the cover (5-5 people, hehe)
okay, let's start it... why I recomend K-ON to Girls und Panzer?
first, the main character... Yui and Miho are seems to be so much clumsy, but Miho is more clever and Yui is more talented
second, the group... in the case of Girls und Panzer, the school... they start the competition from the very beginning, step by step they hardly pushed their effort to become the greatest of all...
third, item that the girls are using... isn't it interesting that you can buy the same Guitar, Bass, Keyboard, and Drum like what the characters in K-ON did because the item they are using in the show are the real thing... that modeled in 3D in the show?... that's also do for Girls und Panzer... the Tanks are real, they do exist and modeled 3D in the show
well shortly, I see Ankou Team like HTT member with Tank, no musical instrumental items read more
Both are comedies about cute girls and their friendship with another girls. In both, the girls are figting with weapons, but while in Girls und Panzer it´s tanks, in Soul Eater NOT it´s partners changing in weaons.
