So Ra No Wo To, Girls & Panzer Recommendations
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.
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.
