Girls Und Panzer #01 — Live Food

October 8th, 2012


It’s got to beat all the bad CG.


You know what is NEVER a good sign? Beginning with a nearly thirty second still of a CG rendered shot. Oh wait, there were five dots in the distance moving very slowly. Oh, here come some girls running up, maybe that means… Nope. Have a couple of minutes of CG tanks rolling around on CG ground. At least the promos were pretty much completely indicative of the content; cheap, plain, and full of bad CG, even often people, just in case you weren’t taumatized enough by the character designs already. There was one point where a CG girl was walking through the background, casting no shadow while wandering through the shadows of other objects. It was… disturbing. 

The most interesting/exciting part came from my own personal ruminations on what the "Live" station at the cafeteria was for. Salad and Main, I can understand, or at least guess at. The music was also frequently corny enough to laugh at. Otherwise, a whole lot of nothing. Main character doesn’t want to tank it up, but her friends are such friendly friends that she does it for friendship because they’re friends. They aren’t even doing cute things, trying to be funny, or even educate people about tanks, leaving me uncertan what the hell the point of this show even is.

    I could have sworn that you would have used “Uber” here to describe this show considering ze UberTorrent and UberPatch.

  • jingoi says:

    If they’re going to force moe down our throats then they shouldn’t leave out the fanservice.

  • Adam says:

  • Gorilla13 says:

    The point of this show is for you to masturbate over that pink tank. So, did you beat your meat to it yet?

  • sams says:

    Fucking retarded this show, just put the money into another season of Upote! already.

    At least the point of Upote! was to have fan-service loaded moe show that still cater to gun nut fantasies, hell you could even use it has gun safety course lessons format.

    But this one if just stupid, teach you that succumbing to peer pressure is okay, the forcing your traumatized fellow student to take the sport that almost killed her is right and that the student council is some sort of totalitarian regime.

    Only thing remotely entertaining was the propaganda video, which was kind of the thing you would expect if Japan had won WW2 by having women fight in MBT.
