Product Description

You may have heard of kung fu, but the girls at Oarai Academy practice gun-fu - really, really BIG gun-fu, in fact. It's called Tankery, and it's the martial art of operating armored tanks! And even though the Tankery program at Oarai has been defunct for years, the student council has taken a sudden interest in the art and no one they set their sights on is safe. Which is how Miho Nishizumi, who transferred to Oarai specifically to stay out of tanks, gets drafted to join the newly revived Tankery divison. But it's not all bad, because joining her in Team Anglerfish are her new found friends Saori, the highly receptive radio operator; Hana, a flower arranger turned gunner; Mako, their brilliant, but chronically sleepy driver; and combustible tank fangirl and loader Yukari. They may not be on the half-track to fame and fortune, and maybe some of them would rather shop for tank tops than become tops in tanks, but once their focus is locked and loaded, they're absolutely driven. It's mad, it's metal and mayhem is guaranteed! It's GIRLS UND PANZER!

Amazon.com

The school adventure series Girls Und Panzer (2012) combines a kawaii (cute) cast of teenagers with World War II-vintage tanks, a juxtaposition even more incongruous than the big eyes/big breasts/big guns cliché. Shy Miho Nishizumi comes to Oarai Girls' School because the curriculum doesn't include "tankery." Her family has a long association with tanks, and her brittle older sister has rejected Miho for sacrificing an interscholastic match to save her teammates from drowning. But the Oarai student council president adds the program, announcing that training for amateur tank warfare makes girls "polite, graceful, modest, and gallant." Miho and her friends, a standard array of anime girls' school types, form the crew of one tank. To no one's surprise, Miho's talents for planning strategy and commanding subordinates lead to victories, first in intramural scrimmages, then in contests with expensive, high-ranking academies. They fight on a variety of terrains, all of them built onto a sort of aircraft carrier the size of a large island. As Takaaki Suzuki, who served as military adviser on Strike Witches, also worked on Girls Und Panzer, it's not surprising that the two series have a similar feel. But Strike Witches was an inane fan service adventure set in a British Neverland. Having characters praise a specific tank model as a favorite of Rommel's or a key armament in the Blitzkrieg may strike American viewers as tasteless, if not offensive--as a series about the Enola Gay might offend Japanese audiences. But Girls Und Panzer proved popular, generating a novelization, a video game, and a manga adaptation, plus a theatrical feature slated for 2014. The extras include two programs of "Introductions," recycled footage of the characters with some extra narration describing them. (Rated TV 14V: violence, violence against women, nudity, potentially offensive WW II and Nazi imagery) --Charles Solomon

Girls rule, and here, they rule with tanks.

There's plenty of funny stuff here generated by the cast's interactions; lots of good clean fun.

I own a few books about WWII tanks and have watched many documentaries on WWII tanks. Needless to say, I really enjoy things about tanks! Especially in video games or TV shows! That being said, I also play an online game that has everything to do with these things called, "World of Tanks," and it is how I first heard about this anime. Some people absolutely hate it, but many more absolutely love it!

I first saw this show being streamed on Crunchyroll (an anime streaming website) and after hearing about it from some fellow online-players, I decided to give it a shot. For the first two episodes, I honestly couldn't stop laughing at how ridiculous (but entertaining) the concept of little Japanese high school girls shooting each other in tanks was. However, by the third episode not only was I hooked, but I suddenly was taking the show a lot more seriously! The concept is pretty far-fetched, admittedly, but the show is an absolute blast! And honestly, I don't think I could even use a calculator to add up all of the "far-fetched" anime plot lines out there! In comparison, this one is pretty damned believable.

Just a few of the amazingly well-drawn tanks you will see in this anime are: Pz.Kpfw. IV, Sturmgeschütz III Ausf. F., M3 Lee, Sherman Firefly, Elephants, Pz.Kpfw 38(t), Cromwells, Jagdpanthers and even a Maus!. The list goes on and on and you can check under the Wikipedia entry for this anime for a few more of the tanks you will see. Fact of the matter is, however, that you WILL NOT find a movie, cartoon, television series or any type of viewing material that will show you more tanks in action than this show does!

I'm not a huge fan of anime, but I found Girls Und Panzer to be both captivating and inspirational. The idea of schoolgirls fighting mock battles in WWII machines seems strange at first but one quickly suspends disbelief. It's obvious the writers and animators had a love for the source material, as the tanks are rendered with astonishing levels of accuracy.
Battle scenes are done well with real suspense and intensity, even though you know there's no real danger. The plot is fairly predictable, as are all "underdog team fights overwhelming odds" stories tend to be, but the writing and voice actresses really sell it.
The characters are fairly realistic, (within anime limits), and I often got the feeling that the actions taken by the girls were what real teen age girls would do, when given iron machines of death to play with. The iconic image of a pink M3 Lee, as well as the colorful STuG, complete with Hashimoto banners, stay with you and is a great metaphor for the series itself.
By the last episodes, you'll find yourself cheering on the Oorai team as they advance through the Sensha-do tournament. Girls Und Panzer is not a war story, but an excellent sports saga. Enjoy, and Panzer Vor!

Edit: Note that the above review is based on the subtitled Japanese language version of the series. The English dub, included in this release, is not quite up to the standards of the original Japanese. While the English voice cast isn't bad, they lack some of the energy and believability of the Japanese crew. Also, the alteration of the scene in Episode 8 where the Pravda team sing "Katyusha", although understandable due to copyright issues, is tragic. The replacement music isn't nearly as rousing, and fun. I rate the original as 5 stars, and the English Dub as 4.5 stars.

No panty shots.
No nudity (except that time they had a team meeting in the bath. But nothing extreme and there's a lot of steam).
No over the top lesbian themes.
No over all perverseness.

What you read is what you get.

What do you read? Girls und Panzer.

I am not a huge fan of anime, I love Cowboy Bebop, like Champloo a bit less and thats pretty much it.
This was something I happened across by accident on Hulu and decided to give it a try, as a former US Army tanker, I love all things tank.

I was absolutely blown away in the first few minutes by the accuracy of the depictions of the tanks, their movement and sounds.

After only a few episodes, I was hooked on the plot, character developments and music. The dialogue is not corny and the execution of the art, choreography and music/sound effects in the battles are top notch and very dramatic.

The BEST part is that this is a cartoon I can watch with my 8 & 3 year old daughters and not have to sit thru pink ponies, winged fairies or Barbie ballerinas. THEY LOVE IT TOO!
It is great because it shows strong female characters, working together, solving problems and competing as a team. I feel that is something all too rare in modern cartoons and childrens programming in general. Theres no graphic violence, language or nudity, all of which is also extremely rare in anime. My girls also can now tell the difference between a Hetzer and a STGIII and play at being 'on panzers' on the back yard swing set.

For a good look at the show, look up "The Art of Tankery" trailer on YouTube, if that doesnt seal the deal, nothing will.

PANZER VOR!
