Watched the English dub trailer for barely 20 seconds before I could take it no more. It's true - the dub really brings out the sheer ridiculousness of the entire show. (The tanks and the details on the tanks are awesome. Getting little girls to drive those lethal killing machines? Ridiculous.)

You clearly don't grasp the true beauty of tankery.

I hate myself. But maybe I can learn to love myself. Maybe it's okay for me to be here! That's right! I'm me, nothing more, nothing less! I'm me. I want to be me! I want to be here! And it's okay for me to be here! -- Shinji Ikari, Neon Genesis Evangelion
Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

If I wanted Tankery, I would be playing World of Tanks.

But GuP is the pinnacle of realistic tank anime. Everything else just gets all silly.

An announcer who has no idea that tanks didn't exist in 1902, a Tiger Tank that seems to be a Tachikoma in disguise, and a giant (robot?) lobster chewing on a tank for lunch? Well, GuP seems to be the best of a bad lot...at best.

Sensha-do is just fanservice, just like all the setting detail in Strike Witches. It makes the basic school sports story more fun than if they were just playing hockey.

You're right, as always, Uncle Tines. Thank the Kami for Panzer fanservice! Seriously, I love the level of details put into those machines. Absolutely outstanding stuff, with some little touches that I appreciate (like the German school leader being on Tiger 212, Michael Wittman's Tiger)

Aye, that's what I love about GuP. It has plenty of military fanservice and clever historical details and shout-outs without any of the uncomfortable cheesecake of Strike Witches.

GottaWannaNeedaHava that game

(kudos if you get the commercial reference)

And yeah GuP might be the most realistic tank anime out there...if realism and anime can be used in the same sentence seriously :lol:

I have been watching the dub...needless to say it has been pretty hard to bear though but some actors are better than others and the added radio effect during the combat scenes is a definite plus.

Planning a trip to Japan next October and I put down Ooarai as a place to visit after the tour part of the trip is over. I'll need some help planning this part since I'd need an idea of what to check out that shows up in the series. I'm wondering what people have come across that mentions itineraries, routes, or specific places in the town that pop up in the series. If the whole thing is too much work I may drop it and just stick to the Tokyo area.

So far I've found:

If you take the train it's only about 90 minutes from Tokyo. There is a GuP bus route that drives along the streets and the tower as well the shop the Matilda crashed in have become somewhat the famous hotspots for otaku to visit. I would time my stay definitely with the yearly anglerfish festival (this year had an attendance of 100000 people!) so you can ride JSDF tanks and AHNG~AHNG~ with the voice actors.

for finding locations, this may help visualising a bit more

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyd4ehL6h0k

the map is probably the most helpful though. It's a small town and there is GuP practically everywhere so I wouldn't worry too much about missing anything.





In other news, the second GuP figma is out and it is Yukari!

I would likely miss the Ankou Festival since my dates are mid October-early November. Heading up to Ooarai would depend on how everything shapes up with budget and time but it would be nice if the movie comes out before then too.

Anzio, despite its reputation for "Being tough when worked up", was thought to have lost unceremoniouslly to Oarai, which had gained "momentum" after winning over Saunders High.

However, behind this was an unknown hot struggle.

Prior to the match with Oarai in the 2nd round of the National Panzerfahren contest, Captain Anchovy delivered her manifesto to her team. According to Anchovy, she has a secret plan for dealing with Oarai. Squeezing their limited budget, by economizing and saving they had bought a secret weapon - the Italian Heavy Tank P40. On the other side, Oarai Girls Academy learnt that Anzio is procuring a new tank, but is unaware of its actual type. Thus, Yukari infiltrated into Anzio...

No movie news yet I take it.

Were Eps 5-6 of Yukari's tank corner ever subbed? AK looks like they stopped at 4 and just quit. :irked:

Per the latest Rightstuf catalog, GuP was voted one of the top 5 anime of 2013 or something along with KLK and AOT.
