Thanks for posting that! You did say you were planning a write-up, so I don't mean that it was all for little old me, but I appreciated it nonetheless. I love that Oarai's website has an entire section for Girls und Panzer, and it sounds like a blast for that angle alone. I wonder how locals...

I really want go to Oarai. Was there much to do there, AR-99? The impression I get from some cursory research is that it's a lot about the fish, what with the market and also the aquarium. Did you go to the Marine Tower? Will your write-up be linked here? I've actually fallen behind on my Gu...

Well, I say "can't wait", but it's a bit easier when it's a sequel to a satisfyingly-completed work than, say, the final installment of a four-part movie series. Really, the wait between episodes 10.5 and 11 was harsher than the wait for the movie.

Rewatched the series over the last few days. Man, it's still so great. I love how lousy a shot Momo is and how much Anzu wrecks everyone when they just swap gunners. I love Darjeeling dropping her tea when Miho outmanouevres her. I love that Anzu's comment about Anzio is actually word-for-wo...

My brutally honest opinions on it is that its pretty bad. The fights bore me, the plot is laughably bad, Mako is the worst thing to happen to comic relief ever, and characters are 2 dimensional and flat. Usually I really enjoy hyper-stylized action but this just disgusts me. 4/10 Fair enough. I rea...

Watched When Marnie Was There last week. It was a really nice film. I think it was better - I certainly enjoyed it more - than Ghibli's last Yonebayashi-directed, English novel-adapted work. I especially found Anna an interesting protagonist, more so than the average "Ghibli girl" but ...

The name is written in katakana as カエサル (Kaesaru). Coincidence or intentional? Czar too is derived from Caesar BTW. Well, they transcribed the Latin pronunciation, same way Paris is パリ and not パリス. That a word that evolved from it is pronounced and thus transcribed the same way is more a lo...

I'm pretty sure they say it like that because it's the original Latin pronunciation. The word Kaiser did come from Caesar, too, at least according to Wiktionary.

Someone remind me who Anzio's first round opponent was, I'm assuming they also used tankettes then.

According to the OVA, "Maginot", so I'm guessing a French-styled team.

Well the raw of the OVA is out. I don't know how long it will take for it to be subbed but it seems to be really enjoyable from the looks of it. Wait, I thought your Japanese was pretty good. Or do I just think that because you always post people's translations? My moon's pretty dreadfu...

Supposedly Nakashima's idea for a non-canon joke episode was supposed to be Senketsu and Junketsu going to a laundromat and running into each other there and starting a fight. Junketsu was supposed to reveal that he was only pretending to be silent. In the end the two return home more dirty and...

That's how much Japanese BD prices are, usually. Anyway, Kill la Kill's two-cour, so the episode count is three after volume 1: nine volumes in total.
