While I’m not a big fan of anime, I have recently procured and consumed a somewhat unknown anime by the title of “Girls Und Panzer”. Being the history buff that I am, I rejoiced when I found out that it was about tanks. Mostly tanks. I felt like this was someone’s dream, pretty much anyone’s dream: What if an alternate universe existed where tanks were crewed by girls, specifically by anime high school girls? Then this anime is your answer. However, even though it only had 12 episodes and 2 movies, they convey the plot pretty well and give a good insight into this strange world. Pretty much it’s like any high school anime drama/whatever high school thing, except no guy friggin’ exists apart from a few minor characters. They go to school in large scale aircraft carriers turned into “school ships”, becoming a school on a boat. Each of the main schools shown in the anime, Oorai, Kuromorimine, Pravda, Saunders, and Glorrian. They mainly are meant as a training ground for the art of “tankery” or “sensha-do”. It is a sport practiced to make young women disciplined, strong, and focused. The entire tv anime is about the Oorai ship almost getting scrapped to winning the high school championship. The two movies had more of an emphasis on the events afterward, and are part of a supposed 6 movie series. Overall, you should watch it even if you don’t like tanks, watch it even if you’re not a big fan of anime. It is has it’s funny moments, interesting characters, and is surprisingly accurate to history looking at the tanks. 11/10, would definitely recommend and watch again. Also, the first movie is pretty good, so watch it as well.
