After a brilliant victory over Saunders University High School, girls from Ooarai now have to face Italian-themed Anzio Girls High School in the second round of the 63rd National High School Sensha-Dou Tournament. The high-spirited girls from Anzio, led by the charismatic Chiyomi Anzai, advance toward the battle equipped with baffling tactics and a secret weapon.

Ooarai will soon find out that what seemed to be a mere formality might take an unexpected and possibly disastrous turn. Whether they will win the match, or lose and doom their school to a closure, is still on a knife-edge.

This will be a quick one. I'll assume you've already seen Girls und Panzer and are wondering whether the OVA is worth checking out. If you haven't watched the show yet, it's best to watch it first but you could probably still enjoy this title on its own if you really wanted to. Although you will find a lot more to like about it if you're familiar with the original tv series.

The story takes place during the battle against Anzio, a "Japanese-themed Italian school". Be prepared for a lot of deliciously animated pasta.

Just about all the elements you loved about the show are here. The read more

I rated the original GuP a 9, and that's actually because the original production hit a snag after episode 10, which the cast joke about during a live show:

"Well, you know, we were going for the split 1-cour release. It could be a thing."
"So what were you girls doing during those weeks where you weren't broadcasting?"

I suspect that the production staff actually wanted to do the second round match, but because time/budget was tighter than expected, they basically cut the entire thing out except for the final white flag. It worked as a punch line, but if you enjoyed the series and wanted to see read more

When it comes to OVA Girls und Panzer is pretty unique because the OVA is not pointless - it actually has something to do with the plot of the main show.

The show follows the Senshado tournament which consists of four matches but it only shows the first round, the semi-final and the final - It notes that the quarter-final was against a school called Anzio but the actual match is missing. I don't know whether that was intentional or maybe they just couldn't squeeze everything into 12 episodes and had to leave something out. Anyway this OVA completes the missing piece and shows the entire read more

I'm actually fuming. I forgot to watch this before watching the movie.. Oh well. Whatever.

Well I don't really have much to say for this. It's pretty much character introductions for the new lads which will later on be in the Girls & Panzer Movie.

Other than that, it's back to some more lolis in tanks blasting each other!

Girls & Panzer is just so fun to watch. I actually nearly cried several times because of how fun it was. Tears of joy, 0 depression.

I do have plans to see the 6 movies but as only 2 are out by now I don't think it's read more
