So the clip that was chosen to be uploaded for public view contains a skirmish where the Chihatan Academy, the team which fields all Japanese tanks, attempts a quick strike at the front of the St Gloriana line and they just get demolished like nothing.

How in the world can there be people who thinks that Japanese nationalism is one of the reasons for GuP popularity? The Japanese tanks are by far the worst performing tanks for Ooarai. The Type 89's moment of fame was being the flag tank and barely being able to dodge all the incoming fire from Pravda. The Type 3's moment of fame was taking an incoming shot from a Kuromorimine Tiger tank.

Japanese tanks were terrible. Girls und Panzer knows this. That's why it's always the German tanks that do most of the damage. How in the world someone could think that a show that shows the complete inferiority of the Japanese war machine could be actually increasing a sense of nationalism is just nonsense, and yet you wouldn't believe the number of times I've read that very point.

If my brother (who's a WWII history buff) saw this he would facepalm at how bad it is that Japanese tanks win. LoL.

I agree they were awful tanks and that it shows nationalism on their front even though they know how bad they were. I had to choose a tank it's be German hands down. They build some of the best during that time. However, it doesn't stop me watching the show. It's a fun show to just relax and watch it.
