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.

Let's see... 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.

Tanks not your thing? Saki is Girls und Panzer's mahjong equivalent. Not only is style and execution similar, they mirror each other in both plot and character.

Nothing more to say, Girls und Panzer are more or less Saki on tanks. Main story, fights, characters-everything is really alike.

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   read more
