Girls und Panzer is an anime set in a semi-realistic world wherein schools are large boats and girls participate in an extra-curricular activity called “tankery,” wherein world war II tanks are used to compete.
The main character ‘Miho’ has just transfered to a new school and deliberately chose a school which did not have a tankery program. Unfortunately for her, the school has just re-instated the program and the student council conscripts her as their first member.
In the interest of avoiding spoilers, I’ll just say that once I got over some of the preposterous parts, the story, characters, and general humor of this show really impressed me. I’ve watched to the end of the regular series, am currently searching out both the manga and the two OVAs which have already come out, and am eagerly anticipating the movie which will be coming out sometime later this year. I strongly recommend this show, even to people who aren’t really fans of anime.
