For a show that has such bizarre premise,it sure looks incredibly boring.

It's feelings like K-on! with tanks. Wait! Sora no Woto already got that covered...

Yeah, I don't know what it is - perhaps its a cultural thing - but I find that Japanese promos usually blow. Maybe they work for the intended (i.e. Japanese, obvvie) audience? I dunno.

Yeah, has a Sora no Woto feel because of the tanks.

Don't want to derail the topic already, but I'm not sure what's with all the Sora no Woto/Sound of the Sky vs. K-ON! comments.

Just because it's the same character designer and there's some slice-of-life elements, it doesn't mean it's the same thing.

And both of them are a lot more original and entertaining compared to something like YuruYuri.

I dunno either considering, according to the ANN entry for the show, the anime character designer didn't work on either of those shows.

People who don't watch these shows tend to think they all look the same, so thats probably the issue here. "All anime with big eyed anime girls are K-On clones!" is probably their thinking.

Mädchen und Panzer. If you're going to put most of the title in German, just finish it.

Well Soro no Woto feeling means that its gonna to be boring. What YuruYuri certainly isnt.

Sora no Woto was most certainly not "boring"

No anthropomorphic tank girls? I'm disappointed in you Japan.

Great, so apparently anime has reached the point where it is necessary to explicitly state when an show won't have panty flashing.

Well that's a very unbalanced pairing of tanks. Compared to all the other tanks in that lineup the German Mk IV is far superior in maneuverability, firepower, and Armour. The team with the Panzer Mk IV is going to easily stand above the rest.

That's an early MkIV with the short barreled 50mm. It's only got 50mm of frontal armor too.

The StuG III on the other has the high velocity 75 mm. If it hits, it'll kill any of the tanks there. Aiming is the only problem. It's also got 80mm of frontal armor. That should be good against a direct hit from any of the other tanks, except maybe the Lee's 75mm.
