THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The CGI in the following,

Is good as a start and pretty cool.

About the fan service, it’s just right in the spoiler
and it shall be fun the see the 10 girls and more delicious bodies.

I have to mention the following,

Kudos to Japan in showing a girl with a German Eagle symbol! That is nice!

Apart from that my whole family specializes in tanks. So this will be a big relief anime for me from the realities of tanks and their commanding.

Reminds me of Upotte! from the Spring Season. Wondering if it will get more emotional like in the final episodes later on.

Upotte was shit compared to this. The girls in here are human not non human weird stuff like Upotte. You can enjoy the fan service in this series cause you know the girl is human whom you are enjoying it from.

Furthermore tanks are more complex and interesting than mere guns. The girls art style is far better and nicer than Upotte also IMO.

Comparing the first pilot episodes, I would say that this is probably better. I do agree that Upotte! was shit though as I didn't enjoy it that much. However if you were to compare the entire series, it's hard to tell atm. However, you gave Upotte! a score of "8" and that's pretty good imo for a score. So if this is much better, it would be within the 9-10 range for you in your opinion?

Anyways, might watch this all the way through, depends on how well the next few episodes progresses.

Than maybe I might put it to 7 and have this at 8. Personally BD that are having censoring are the worst shit your money can buy. Upotte did that and is therefore a disgrace among animes that betray. You did not know that #1 episode still had blacked panties? They did! This....hey man girl is in her nightgown and nothing there. At all even.

The fact is that the series is far more better for you brain then the gimmicks of Upotte. You can learn of tanks and makes them plain formidable whereas any other animes learning becomes nothing of value in terms of weaponry. Guns aren't that amazing either compared to tanks.

The entire town and school is on an aircraft carrier what a head spinning twist.

I like the tanks in this series and there's a few I have no clue what they are.

I'm also surprise to see a town on a carrier ship. How the heck did that work?

Aynways, good episode. I'm interested to know Miho's past to why she hates Sensha-Do. The CGI on the tanks are surprisingly good. I was hoping to see them try out the tanks but sadly, have to wait for that on the next episode.

Looking forward what these girls can do and seeing some great tank battles.

Now, I have to wait for a decent subgroup to pick these up.

Well Kyoukai Senjou Horizon had a similar setup except it was not a carrier type but it sure looked like one.

This one is more realistic as even the shape is that of a carrier. USA one I presume?

watching this with Commie subs is so LOL and makes my head hurt.. you're basically alternating reading the English subs for the harder Japanese terms and listening to the Japanese audio for the German subs.. hahaha.. this alone could get me watching.. thank you Commie for making it slightly interesting..

anyway, i'm sticking with this show for now.. it's probably more similar to that of a moe team battle sports anime like Saki than either Upotte (ecchi Harem) or Strike Witches (fighting against alien invasion) or Sora no Woto (slice of life in a sci-fi setting).. hope there's a lot of infodumps about tanks..

Maaaybe I'l give it one more episode, even tho the first episode was kinda lame IMO.

But I have to admit that I laughed at the video they were shown, that if you wanted to be a popular and successful women you had to become a tank driver xD

I prefer to watch raws... but with this I will stick up with Commie :D
what they did was hillarious

and series itself
I expect to have some panzer-service here and there, some info would be also fine (guy who was doing it for Upotte is also here).
So far it looks like it will deliver it :)

Oh lord, those forcefully squeezed-in german words in Commie's v1 were pretty damn annoying. I mean, it might be funny for those who feed on stereotypes, but it was really unnecessary.
Yes, they did hit mostly good german translations, but it simply killed the subs for me.

The show itself was great, but the fansubers ruined the watched. God damn Commie with their german nonsense. If nobody will sub this properly, probably will drop it. Though it would be a shame, the show is pretty interesting.

Had a Strike Witches feel about it.
And of course Upotte.

The first ep was a bit boring, when the half way mark came I thought it was over, was surprised when I checked how far I had gotten :P
But not Hyouka first ep boring, didn't feel like sleeping in this one :P

The translation group is brilliant for adding German words in there really adds nicely to this anime.
I actually saw some of the manga a few weeks ago and i was really enthusiastic about this anime high school girls driving in WW2 tanks is a really nice idea.
This episode was different from the manga but i really liked it also didn't read enough of the manga to see they where on a ship that also appears to be from WW2.
The characters aren't all together yet but for now we already had a pretty nice group so far.

I probably won't be getting to far in the series like everything else of the same genre. Upotte comes to mind.

HAHAHA I don't know why, but I thought this was great xD The completely ludicrous idea and the absurd comical realism that they try place on it had me giggling the whole way through. Regardless of whether it was actually the anime's merits or just my derangement from lack of sleep, this anime gets:

First impression: 7/10 xD

Much better start than Upotte.

LoL I agree, first episode seems interesting, and dat animation was insanely great ... I wonder how much did they pour on this one ...
Although it was kinda weird but I enjoy this one so far ... But the advertisement they showed in the gym was hilarious ...

Based on my memory of their looks, but on the first few minutes alone there is a Panzer III, a Panzer IV, a Type 95, a M3 Lee, and weirdly a StuG III. Mathilda II and Churchill are also mentioned.

I'll second this. I should be already used to the extreme bizarreness of the Japanese media, but this is taking it to a whole new level. I wasn't exactly sure whether I should laugh or not, so for most of the episode my mouth was twisted in a strange grimace bordering between a grin and scornful pout.

Dropped. Not because of awful CGI, or sheer folly - it's just that I found it utterly disconcerting. There's just no way for me to enjoy it.

The show is surprisingly solid. I love the animation of a view from a turret hatch as the tank moves. The girls of the student council are pretty cool. And we should see some back story of the characters starting from the heroine herself in later episodes.

Since I watched the show without English sub I don't know whether it got subbed or not, but some of the things written on the club application form is pretty funny. For example it includes a clearly non-existent "study" name Sendo 仙道, which means the Way of Hermit-Wizard (LOL).

The premise of the whole Senshado (Way of Tanks) is likely to be based on 長刀道 (Naginata-do), which is another "study" the girls can pick in the club application form. Unlike Sendo it indeed exists in Japan, and it is similar to "Senshado" in that Naginata, the long halberd-like "knife on a pole" weapon, was originally a weapon used mostly by men but later transformed into a type of martial art mainly practiced by women. Here "senshado" is the same - once a deadly weapon used only to kill but now it is a way for females to perfect themselves in mental and physical abilities.

And the ending is amazing. I read that the place Ooarai (which also is part of the school name) indeed exists (in Ibaraki Prefecture) and the anime has some scenes based on the city, but I would never imagine to see this city would in fact rest on a gigantic carrier on sea! So suddenly the whole worldview shifted -- and I don't really know what the anime is going to do with this strange setting.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Tiger already made a very brief appearance in the flashback by the heroine in Ep.1 I believe..

Someone else saw that too XD

Yeah, that activity sounds really interesting compared to the others, including the tanks.

From her flashback though, could it be that she lost her friend in an incident there


Kind of sad for Miho, first day and her new friends suddenly turned on her

Love that over-the-top promotion video. It actually showed us the reader how nonsense the whole tank art is and not to take it seriously

Ans: the tank commander should be inside the tank for safety reasons.

My guess is that this show is deep down light-hearted so I think we will not see death in this anime, kind of like the other anime which has a large ensemble of female cast doing military thing i.e. Strike Witches. But some kind of injury or shock resulted from some action / mission may be involved, again like Strike Witches. This may cause the trauma we see in Miho. According to what was shown, my guess is that she by mistake bumped into a Tiger at close distance and was hurt/shocked quite badly as a result.

T-34 is a must :)

I would love to see some more "exotic" constructions, with my fav A7V - entire class would be needed to operate that thing.

Well, it was a little bit meh. Can be a pretty ejoyable series though when it gets to some tank action.
I hope someone other than Commie pick it up though, the German all over the place was annoying and really took from the experience for me, it totallly didn't fit like it was probably supposed to.
