Are you freaking kidding me?


Am I the only one who thought Lolis in WAR TANKS was the stupidest idea in the world?

Why can't we get Second Seasons of shows that need them. Like A-Channel, Usagi Drop, Kamisama no Memochou, Inu x Boku SS, Sankarea, Ben-to, Accel World, and Binbougami ga?

Most of those shows sold poorly that's why though I liked some of them myself.

Could do without the creepy ending to Usagi Drop being animated though.

...If one were to watch the show to the point where the actual tank combat starts, it's pretty good.

Let's be honest, if you're watching anime then you need to learn to not pay any mind to how stupid a premise sounds.

I'd love a Ben-To or Accel World continuation, though. But it's probably too early for Accel World and Ben-To sold miserably bad.

Girls und Panzer is the big selling show of the Fall season, and has the potential to be the 4th best selling show of the year behind Nise, Fate/Zero and Sword Art Online. It would be kinda silly to not make a sequel.

No, plenty of people did.

Then they watched it.

Edit: Also, can you not call 16~18 year old high school girls lolis? It seriously dilutes the term into absolute meaninglessness.

Edit2: Also anyone who lists Sankarea, Ben-To and Binbougami Ga has no business calling Garupan's concept "stupid"

Really now.

Don't get me wrong, I quite like both shows. But come on.

Thank goodness this isn't a show about lolis in war tanks then.

Also you want a second season for Ben-to while complaining that Girls und Panzer was a stupid idea? Come on, you can do better than that.

YAY FOR MORE GARUPAN! Very Happy

Awesome news!

Probably, since to my knowledge there's no show with that concept.

A-Channel is not high-class, original or particularly noteworthy, Ben-To and Sankarea's concepts are easily as "stupid" (none of them are, but I'm judging them down to your level), and Accel World is a terrible show. Entertaining but terrible. Also, do you really want the rest of Usagi Drop adapted to anime?
Girls und Panzer hasn't finished yet, how do you know whether it needs a second season to complete the story or not? You might like to see more of A-Channel, Usagi Drop and Ben-To but they work pretty damn well as standalone series. Your use of the word "need" is odd.

Funnily enough, I remember hearing that the director tweeted that it probably will need one. And now it's probably getting it. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Oh yeah... Well gee, that makes the claim to the contrary even less based in quantifiable logic. If I didn't know better, I'd say the only reason AnimeDuelist15 didn't want Girls und Panzer to get a second season was because they personally didn't like it.
