The first of the six film Girls und Panzer das Finale series is scheduled to begin a theatrical run in Japan on December 9th.

Must paint more tanks…..

Anzio will likely be all assembled by this evening and heading to the painting table this week. Count, Viggen, Viking Fisheries, and Yogurt High Schools are each nearly all asembled.

I'm going to have to see one of these. YouTube videos like YouTube link keep coming up as recommended and I have no Idea what it is all about.

If I let UTube run on its own, in short order this favorite will start playing:

For best plot and character development sequence: watch the original series episodes 1-12, then the OVA Anzio Battle, then Der Film.

Uh, can anyone drop a little context here? This old goat is lost.

Girls und Panzer is a Japanese animated TV series in which tank battles are a school sport. The show follows a misfit girls high school team.

It is getting 6 new movies.

I wonder if anyone has converted Battlefront Tanks rules to play Girls Und Panzer

Twig66 has done up very nice homebrew rules that captures the flavour of the show very well! Links to the rules docs are about 1/3 down the first page of this thread, in the post with the picture of Anzio's tanks stored in a pizza box.

As Finale ends with an e, surely it's die Finale!

The GuP writers are good at what they do, Finale is indeed neuter in German.

Girls und Panzer does start from a pretty silly idea, until you remember that part of the proper upbringing of an upper-class lady is use of a naginata (Japanese pole-arm, basically a katana blade on the end of a 6ft staff)!

The premise for GuP is that a proper upper-class lady will know how to operate a tank (as opposed to the classic naginata).

I think GuP is pretty much the textbook definition for the Rule of Cool.

@Lion in the Stars: modern Naginata is so choreographed (it's always performed by a pair) I doubt it would even count towards martial arts anymore.
In GuP's universe upper class ladies race around in Carden Loyd tankettes or doing horse archery shows with FT-17s.
