What is the consensus on Girls und Panzer?
>>372 I only wish they had a 5 pointed star instead of that intergalactic-looking thing.
>>1262 You mean their hammer and sickle? It's just two square rulers and a T-square.

>>1270 The red 'star' is 4 pronged instead of 5 pronged because, like the Hammer and Sickle, its a controversial symbol in the West.
>>1274 Post the full picture!
>>1277 I'm leaving it for an appropriate effort post.
>>1278 Too bad I am an expert sauce seeker, trained on the ancient texts of +Fravia.
>>1282 Haha I am victorious

>>1274 >Implying anime companies give a fuck about what's controversial in the west (Pic not related)
>>1289 They do. The Western Market is an important cashcow for some of them, its why soviet aesthetic is not directly referenced (Japan is the USA's largerst aircraft carrier after all).
>>1290 What about their boner for german ww2 military aesthetic, loli shit and incest baiting? Only a handful of shows are marketed to the west and I doubt GuP, a show featuring cute school aged girls doing cute things, is one of them.
>>1291 >incest baiting Meh, wincest >loli Japanese are repressive of their sexualities, until such paraphilias worm their way into the culture (loli, MILF, trap, futa) >ww2 military aesthetic Something quite popular in the West. Tanya the Evil was VERY popular for its fashie shit, until the author pointed out that she was supposed to mock fascism and capitalism and its insanity. Girls und Panzer ANIME is reliant on the Western market, since Japanese people more readily consume Manga and LN.
>>1292 >until the author pointed out that she was supposed to mock fascism and capitalism and its insanity. I still wonder how much of this was damage control. The anime really seems to enjoy itself in its depravity.
>>1293 Considering before this book he wrote a book where the a former nationalist in notyugoslavia is send back after having destroyed nottitos stability and realising communism wasn't so bad after all, and how to reconcile ethnic tension and self determination with communism. His username has the word for comrade in it (commie connotations), he said he is a hobby communist and shits on capitalism on twitter, I'm inclined he is at the very least left leaning. The anime is more more pro Tanya than the books I've heard. Check out the Tanya thread.

>>1277 I think it's this one Fun fact, I did quite a fair amount of typesetting for GuP pics a couple years ago
>>1300 Cunt, why.

>>1300 Can you translate this too?
>>1290 For commies maybe they do but openly fascist shit seems to be okay?
>>1305 Japan is ruled by a fascist lobby called Nippon Kaigi, don't be surprised when mangaka that add fascists crap to their works get easily published.
(556.17 KB 1066x1491 Klara.jpg)
>>1304 Actually I can't translate for shit, I just do the typesettings But yes, I did typeset that one
>>1305 Because A) reactionary cultural leftovers from WW2 B) The USA is also reactionary and likes such military aesthetic.
>>1294 This. Watching the Tanya film in theaters was miserable. I think half the people there were /pol/yps. The LNs are a lot better than the anime. The anime movie actually came across as pro-fascist when that wasn't the case in the LNs.

Y'all gotta admit that the soundtrack for the show is pretty fucking dope https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3e6EkNXCC0c&list=PLO6e35geTV8CUsxT2CIPr5YxeshQ5tj9Y&index=2&t=0s
>>353 It's trash but Katyusha is cute and Pravda is based.

>>1343 I mean, you're wrong about it being trash, but yes, Katyusha is very cute and Pravda is based and REDpilled
(20.34 KB 600x560 715.jpg)
>>1347 >wrong about it being trash How? The show is genuinely dumb as has been stated or referenced by others in the thread.
>>1355 Why does being dumb make it trash? Not every piece of entertainment needs to be thought provoking or groundbreaking.
Why are, like, half the doujins featuring Katyusha or Nonna or other Pravda members always abuse shit and other crap. As if "ugly bastard" wasn't prevalent enough.

>>1402 As a Katyushafag, yeah, it's annoying as fuck, also annoying is when the guy is a shota as well One doujin that baffled me was one called "A book about flirting with Katyusha" now what I was expecting was some guy flirting with Katyusha and then fucking her, what actually happened was Mind Control...

>>1402 Anti-communism, of course. Speaking of which, what does everyone think of the Battle of Pravda doujin?
>>1427 what the fuck they just hanged the anime like that?
>>1402 half of all doujins are like that really
>>1427 It tries way too hard and by the end I just stopped caring as it was just such non stop misery.
>>1428 It's how Mussolini died
>>1427 >Battle of Pravda doujin While they do the whole retarded "evil soviets" thing and have Katyusha use the tank equivalent of human wave tactics, the brutality is refreshingly shocking compared to the shitty original anime/manga.
Pravda is the only group worth a damn, if for their hardcore soviet rhetoric.
https://gup.fandom.com/wiki/Pravda_Girls_High_School Someone list me the chapters/anime episodes that Pravda appears in since the wiki page only mentions arcs without much episode details.
Since this thread is sort of slow and small, lets expand it to encompass general military-musume anime/manga/LNs. For example Kancolle / Kantai Collection.
>>3149 Correction, Mecha-musume included as well

>>3149 >Kantai If find it rather amusing, if strange, how popular ship-girls got among weebs a few years back, before being frogotten. the popularity was enough that a anime and movie were made and ripoffs like Victory Belles, Azur Lane and other mecha-musume like Girls Frontline and Panzer Waltz. It was fairly cute, though the the strangeness of how human sized girls operate as full blown warships gave me a headache (though fan-art sometimes compromises by making them giants too). The movie was decent, if rather depressing in the end though, and the abyssals are an interesting concept of bio-ships. It also made for good meme material (and of course lewd material). https://old.reddit.com/r/kancolle/comments/3003ac/quick_question_about_the_ship_girls/
>>3154 >https://old.reddit.com/r/kancolle/comments/3003ac/quick_question_about_the_ship_girls/ <the strangeness of how human sized girls operate as full blown warships Speaking of, there are a lot of fanfiction that explore this concept, with quite some grimness.

>>3155 >>3154 Not a big fan of these shows or their fanfictions (mostly out of how ridiculous they are), however I do enjoy some of it casually. However one fanfiction of Kantai Collection that I enjoyed very much was a rather unique fanfic called Kancolle: Exodus Initiative, a sadly incomplete fanfiction where the main character is a Soviet battlecruiser of experimental nature, The Stalingrad, the first ship of the Stalingrad Class Project 82 battlecruisers*. The Abyssals take over most of the world and rule in collaboration with the countries of the world, but there are groups of shipgirls and people who are fighting back in a revek struggle). The fic begins in a bit of a confusing way (intentionally mirroring the chaos of the situation) but eventually clarifies a bit more. One of the interesting aspects is how they address Shipgirls. They physically embody their ships, so removing and replacing ribs and taping together organs or losing arms is treated as normal for them. Another unique part that reflects a bit of the Kancolle movie, is that they retain the memories of war that their soldier's and crew fought in. A unique aspect of the main character is that, the Soviet Navy, whose forces were often stuck fighting on land, since the Germans did not seek to engage in direct naval confrontation and tried to lock them in port with mines and nets, thus Stalingrad (the shipgirl) retains vivid and horrendous memories of the war. Her soviet perspective and ideology is also an influence and interesting aspect. (SPOILERS) Her mannerisms and ideology are initially treated with jocular quality, but it becomes a bit of a plot point in the last chapters. Part of this is seen with her hidden split personality 'Koba', who enunciates her position and is more dangerously and direct (SPOILERS). I think this is so appealing to me because my Great-grandfather fought in the war and my own appreciation of the USSR. TL;DR: I liked the commie ship and the way it was done Original fic: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11720694/13/Kancolle-Exodus-Initiative Russian Translation: https://ficbook.net/readfic/9269278/24003647#part_content *These ships are insane compared to any other battlecruiser and their internal systems honestly would be a good study for future warships and the range on the experimental guns was impressive. - http://www.e-reading.club/chapter.php/1002749/11/superlinkory-stalina-sovetskiy-soyuz-kronshtadt-stalingrad.html - http://archive.is/VQJd8 - Cannons http://archive.is/rLmz
I'm rather surprised how little posts there are in this thread considering the recent activity. Does nobody have an opinion?
