Do you guys actually rewatch every episode or just buy blurays for the heck of it?


Crazy was buying anime on VHS tapes, a complete collection of the three season Slayers {one series for sub and one for dub} would take up as much space as my collection does now, which includes the 12 DVD Slayers collection. And finding one particular episode in all that tape, to watch in theory "immediately"? Not happening.

We've come a long way and hopefully we'll get past this "streaming" thing so we can reach an actual destination of "pop culture medium ownership". But we can't do that until producers understand what "ownership" actually entails. Greedy? That's the point of being a consumer.

Example: I could do all my watching through streaming but then things get taken down or not everything gets put up.

Do I rewatch shows? I watch dubbed than subbed or subbed than dubbed {they're XXXX if they don't have both}, plus I rewatch series in entirety or by certain episodes; New is good in a way but what's really good is great.

Something like Girls Und Panzer is beyond "good" and I've already rewatched it many times, ordering the Blu-Ray was a given. As for casting, it's not so much a question of "who" {but I'd love to hear Jessica Boone and Sasha Paysinger} but "where".

Quite possibly their biggest casting announcement too bad none of the big (Sentai) names were chosen for anyone on Team Anglerfish.

Still, I'm surprised Sentai managed to get Jessica Calvello on board, considering her...issue with ADV over Excel Saga. With Fairy Tail and Ikki Tousen (both also Texas-based), it wasn't quite as big a surprise (especially not the latter), since she wouldn't really make as much sense for her to hold a grudge against FUNimation, which I don't think she ever voiced for prior to that. Here, not really, since Sentai is basically the revived ADV.

I haven't seen the dub but I hear they cut out the Katyusha song sung by the Pravda team. Not sure how a copy right could have affected this since in Russia it is a public domain song from the 1880s which was popularized as a Soviet march during WWII. It defines the Team. Hope they also kept Panzerlied for the Black Forest girls but it would have been better it was sung similar to Katyusha.

The "they" in this case is the original Japanese production company who didn't offer it as part of the streamed version and had a reanimated version ready in time for the foreign release; I've noticed that in many places, full blame is being ascribed to the American company Sentai and the dub in particular for some reason.

The confusing part is that the show's creative team choose to replace a song with a full chorus, two singing leads and proper musical framing with an instrumental with mouth movements removed - but with the same framing for non-existing solos. It changes the audience to more of a "Huh, what was that?" if they don't know about the cut track to "That's awful" for those in the know.

I'm just glad for Youtube so the correct is always at hand {for now}. On the other hand, maybe I'd wouldn't feel as left out if I hadn't seen the scene as originally intended, the drive and teamwork of Pravda through song, a counterpoint to Oarai's scene in the following episode.

As for the copyright issue, there could be any number of things behind it, from one producer finding the license costs too high to not trying in the first place to creating a deterrent for reverse importation {The animation company didn't even try to find an appropriate replacement, just one that was free; It goes beyond not caring to sabotaging their own work}.

I'm leaning towards the last one as the song being cut due to copyright law was at least an understandable reason. Replacing it with an inferior version that drags down the pace is just wrong.

I heard on Sentai's YouTube page that the song was deleted because the copyright owner to "Katyusha" was demanding an arm and a leg. And since Sentai is still a rather small company...

Anzio OVA

I think Anzio might just be one of my favourite teams of the lot, they were incredibly charming. I am very happy that we got this well done 35 minute OVA. I expected Anchovy to be a bit like Katyusha or in general like a Rie Kugimiya based on her looks, but she turned out very friendly and the right kind of spunky and charismatic.

Anzio were not the brightest light bulbs, they were spoiler[even more embarrassingly infiltrated by Yukari, and they kind of wrecked their own plan by putting out too many fakes]. But they had a spirit to them that actually made you kind of want to root for them a little. Them managing to be the spoiler[end credit tanks] felt great, followed by them kind of spoiler[messing up on their plan to support Ooarai].

The air of fun was spread through the entire thing really, I know that I enjoyed the series in general, and I found this to be a good thing to watch. Good also that they also used the time to show us various other places that we might not normally have seen, like spoiler[Hippo's hangout with them having a different look, or the motor club's.... garage?] This was a great watch as someone who became a fan of Girls und Panzer.

And was that an spoiler[Equilibrium styled gun fight] using tanks?

I thought that too. It was bloody GLORIOUS!

I really enjoyed this OVA. It was very fun and, although we already know the outcome, it was cool to see how it all panned out. I too like the Anzio team a lot now and I'm not the least bit surprised that Anchovy has a good-sized fanbase. She's likely even my new favourite in the series.

Also, spoiler[OMFG how did nobody in that 2nd-to-last tank not die!? Is their tank filled with jello or something!?]

I only watched a few episodes of this anime, but here is one thing I liked- the cute pink tank! What else would cute anime girls drive into battle?

Looks like a St. Gloriana rematch, though with Chihatan School doing whatever.
