GuP waifu/girls thread
Isuzu Hana is mine
So how much Naomi is in the movie?
Best girl by far. It's too bad she's tanksexual and would never love me back.
Its up to Bandai really as they pretty well have total creative control over the property. After some research Actas is just a 100% subsidiary of Bandai Visual it turns out only without the semi autonomy of Sunrise. Maybe we get an OVA. If Gundam Manga can get those now there's no reason not to.
>tfw I'm the only one who cares about her
Eclair is a good girl.
>gave up the biggest match of her young life to make up for one of her subordinates doing something technically legal but unsportswomanlike
Kei is the purest conceivable girl
>(translating) this chapter is dildos
Typesetting it is buttplugs.
>(note: She's using a lot of storytelling-style voice inflexions of difficult translation into English)
(note: She's using a lot of vocal inflections in her storytelling which are difficult to translate)
This shit's 2spoopy4me.
Also, a note for next page
>The resemblance here betwen Saemonza and Kukuro Anrakutei (from Joshiraku) isn’t a coincidence. Mizushima directed both series in 2012. There was a tank in Joshiraku’s OP, and now Saemonza does rakugo.
>Pretty scary rakugo.
also, not deserving of a note but of a comment here, unless I'm mistaking she's using the traditional rakugo "end of show" line, so I'm changing the simple "thank you" Momo wrote into the full "thank you kindly for your atention" that was used in Joshiraku subs. Maybe there's a better translation, but I'm sticking to that one because Joshiraku.
Is the idea behind this note that people just won't get the reference? If so, will they not get the reference because it's obscure, or for cultural / localization reasons?
Obscurity, not all people are interested in anime staff.
Also, the resemblance between Saemonza and best girl was officially said or is just something you faggots are assuming?
It's because anyone knowing Joshiraku but not knowing the director was also GuP's might wonder why Saemonza is going full rakugo here (complete with pillow and name card).
They're normally not very similar, but here Saemonza is (just for this one time) being totally a Kukuro clone. In page 2 (wait for it, very slow typesetting) she even gets the same hairdo.
If that's the case then I question whether the note should be included. What you're describing is likely just as true for Japanese audiences as it is for Western audiences. The important thing is that the material is translated in such a way that maintains the integrity of the reference, so that people who can "get it" because they're familiar with the material in question will. The goal of scanlation isn't to create an annotated version of the text, is it?
That's just an uneducated opinion, though. Either way, the text of it looks fine, but I might recommend not going so far into specifics:
>The resemblance here betwen Saemonza and Kukuro Anrakutei (from Joshiraku) isn’t a coincidence. Mizushima directed both series in 2012. There was a tank in Joshiraku’s OP, and now Saemonza does rakugo.
"This is a reference to Kukuro Anrakutei from Joshiraku, Mizushima directed both series."
This way the reader has all the information they need if they want to investigate further, going into the date of publication and other similarities between the two is sort of superfluous.
It's even referenced by Caesar, that's the reason the note is in this page instead of page one - so the note stays. But I'm going (almost) with your sugestion, which is "less is more"
Oh yeah, she totally lampshades it huh
>T that was scary
"Th-That was scary"
They're two different sounds, and not having the dash is confusing.
>for your atention
>I somehow reminds me
Thanks, I totally Momo'd those.
Late at night in the part of the world where I live, and this chapter is driving me nuts, so calling it a day
You Momo'd twice
also yes, she is using onomatopoeias, thank you for noticing
Better than nothing as a stopgap. Think as it as the M3 while the M4 was being developed; of course you'd want the better one when it's available, but sure you wanted the worse one to be around when it was the only thing available

The ticket price must be high compare to other movies.
Either that or they had a lot of repeat viewers. [email protected] in particular should have had a lot of incentive benefits to entice repeat viewers like a new film strip or clear file of a different idol for every weekend.
Not bad. I wonder what the expenses were like. Projecting from this they probably stand to make around $5M USD just from ticket sales over the next year or two. I wouldn't be too surprised if that covered production costs by itself. Then you add in future disc sales and total merch, plus the bump in disc sales of the series and this has probably been a huge win for the studio.
Well it didn't go overboard on the costs, advertising and theater count like say Anthem of The Heart, Madoka or Love Live the School Idol Movie so it shouldn't have too high a barrier to clear. I'd say the campaign for it was about low-mid tier in terms of costs, like it had a solid ad campaign so you knew it was coming out but not totally up in your grill or anything like that.
I love fluffy.
>not having the gif
Hana belongs with me
I'm gonna call that extremely unlikely. It's obviously not professional grade work, just based first on the typography, and second the art. And all of that is even outside the most obvious problem, the divergence in style. Just some fanart.
>Girls und Panzer Warns Fans Not to Trespass at Real-Life Golf Course
Disqualified! Those tanks are not senshado-legal!
Yes she always is. But Saemonza is always with one closed eye (because her soulmate is usually asociated with being one eyed, something which /ak/ once proved is just an urban legend nd not factual history but hey, it's Hippo Team, we're talking Winter War here), meaning the few times she opens BOTH eyes she isn't following he character but "being herself" (exception: >>133941953, she's lampshading ANOTHER character). The times she''s "being herself" is, the finale victory parade and... ogling Miho's full frontal nudity. Subtle and blatant at the same time. TL;DR: Literally "maybe", and Saki is literaly Saki.
Doubtful. The one who forgot was me, to mention the third time she opens both eyes: OVA 4. It's a running joke, really.
also /u/ would be >>133957724, there's no single frame nor panel in the GuP franchise suggesting that.
>There was a tank in Joshiraku’s OP
Always wondered why that was there
She seems like a girl who would fall in love with you through mutual tanksexuality.
Better brush up on your tankknowledge.
I heard the movie tanked
I bet this will stop the franchise in its tracks

>UFO is an initialism, not a regular abbreviation, meaning it's not pronounced as a word. If you pronounced it as "oo-foh" then you'd want to use "an," but as it's pretty universally pronounced "yuu-eff-oh" with a hard Y, you want "a UFO."
Not in most places where English isn't the primary language, in those "Ufo" is a word, not an initialism.
Ho~ld on!! Money award!! Catch it alive!!!

Also back in this one:
This is a ridiculous note that I probably shouldn't even bring up but I'm going to anyway: This should probably be one word, "handprint" Really both are fine, though.
It looks like the kana below ths isn't completely erased?
>Things like this... Tends to happen, right...
"Tends" should at least be changed to "Tend"
Plural things tend to happen. A singular thing tends to happen.
>Saemonza's ghost stories are a masterpiece as always.
This is probably fine, but "ghost stories" is plural and "a masterpiece" is singular. A really simple solution would be "Saemonza's ghost stories are masterful as always."
>a certain one
Should be "a certain someone"
>Not in most places where English isn't the primary language, in those "Ufo" is a word, not an initialism.
Really? That's interesting. Actually now that you mention it I remember there was a whole bit about the pronunciation of the word "UFO" in Hibike! Euphonium.
It appeaaared/came ouuuuut!!

The face for the climax, goes like this!!
L like this?
The eye is important, probably!
done at last
So after pouring through online dictionary resources and etymology stuff, as well as consulting some of my peers I've come to the following conclusions:
1. The word UFO, pronounced "yuu-eff-oh" is completely dominant in continental US English.
2. I see entries in English for a word "ufo" pronounced "yuu-foh," with a hard Y sound.
3. I don't know anything about what's more common in British English.
4. It doesn't really matter, because both start with a hard Y sound, which means they should always be with "a," as in either "a UFO" or "a ufo," never "an ufo."
5. "ufo" pronounced "oo-foh" appears to be a word in some other languages, but not English.
6. I've also seen some reports that UFO was actually originally an abbreviation, not an initialism, and that that is probably why it came to be "ufo" when taken as a loanword by other languages. But even in all those reports it is pronounced "yuu-foh" with a hard Y, not "oo-foh."
So the conclusion is that it should be "a," not "an." Whether you're using "UFO" pronounced "yuu-eff-oh" (the currently common US English form), or if you're using "UFO" pronounced "yuu-foh," possibly the original form in the US despite being archaic now.

Galax, Yukari is Japanese. In Japanese culture they're quite big in the "find some flaw in a piece or artiistic craft and call it beautiful PRECISELY for not being perfect". You can bet our collective asses she WOULD find something BAD to say about ANY tank, if only to be able to say she loves that tank precisely because of it.

You got the joke wrong, Anon. You should have mentioned the several reverse speeds, so any Italyfag could have told you that "well, unlike you faggots, we like to be able to go backwards slower than a full rout. Maybe if you had them in your tanks, you wouldn't have had to leave them all at Durnkirk" or something like that. Then someone would have mentioned Bir el Gubi and we would have laughed at the Brits. (Unless you ARE Brit, then you would have angrily posted that it never happened - even if it did). Then someone would have posted the casualties reports from Wikipedia of the Austrian-Italian WW1 front (carefuly leaving out the last one) saying "LOL Italy sucks", followed by someone posting the cap of the final Austrian defeat alongside a "LOL Austria, managed to lose to Italy!" line. Then someone would have posted the pic of Anchovy and her gang on horseback, and Anon would have joked about Pepperoni TKing her horse. See what you did? You just wasted a perfectly good thread like clockwork - sure than mentioning Smug-chan. I hope you're happy.
>carefuly leaving out the last one
Why include something irrelevant? By October 1918 Austria had lost most of its army fighting the Russians and Serbs. Italy's actions accounted to nothing in its defeat, so the joke is that Italy is meaningless and incompetent (being unable to achieve a victory against a distracted Austria until the war is literally over and the Habsburg empire is dissolving).
But sorry for whatever I did.

That battle never even happened. The Ottomans had no record of coming across the supposed battlefield, which is something you'd think they'd trumpet about.
It's a story that was invented by an Austrian republican in the 1830s in an attempt to discredit the monarchy. Even wikipedia corrected accounts for that.
The French losing is a meme. May as well believe this one >>133981623 or that the US won their revolution on their own.
France is the most militarily successful nation in Europe, historically speaking.
In case you're not trolling (for the answer seems obvious), >>133981189 is a list of Italian memes that happen in most /ak/ threads, and >>133981578 lists a discussion that happened at least three times with basicaly the same posts back when the Anzio OVA (so it can qualify almost as Italian pasta, pun not intended but welcome)
Yeah they're devil dogs named by the Germans lol
We both know Italy wasn't a nation in ancient history. The accomplishments of Rome don't count for all of them when Rome was occupying them.
They're not memes if Italy's war record is really that bad. Being able to sneak some merchants ships through so their troops can surrender in North Africa doesn't really sound like a great victory.
How many stand-up fights did the Italian navy win against the Royal Navy?
You know, now that I think about it, Germany is probably the worst place geographically to fight a war from. England and France to the east, Russia/USSR to the east, and three different land invasion routes.
Yeah they're pretty fucked. No wonder Bismarck tried to unfuck them by telling everyone "don't go to war east and west at the same time." Too bad Wilhelm ignored him and Hitler was Austrian.
>doesn't really sound like a great victory
>How many stand-up fights did the Italian navy win against the Royal Navy?
Your definition of "win" is wrong. You "win" if you manage your objective and the other guy doesn't his. So, short answer, all of them. Because they got ALL their convoys through, and teh RN stopped NONE of them. Sucks to be you, britfag.
Don't be so defensive, Italyfag. It's cool all their convoys got through (even though they didn't).
So what stand-up fights did the Italian navy win?
>France is the most militarily successful nation in Europe, historically speaking.
Historically speaking, England is the most successful nation. Mostly because nations are a very modern thing and England had more success since nations appeared.
The King of France was not France. The Holy Roman Emperor was not Germany. The King of England was not England.
Take the Hundred Years War. Was it a war between the nation of France and the nation of England? No.
It was a war between two French noble houses.
One, descended from the daughter of the King of France. And the other descended from his younger brother.
It just happened that among the titles of one of them, there was King of England, But he also had French noble titles. Both sides had French and non-French allies.
And in the end, whoever had the Duke of Burgundy on his side had the advantage.
By the time of William the Conqueror, the King of France only ruled the region surrounding Paris. Among his vassals, the Count of Flanders was richer and likely stronger than he was. So was the Count of Toulouse. And the Count of Blois. And the Count of Barcelona, that was more or less independent. The Duke of Normandy and the Count of Anjou were about as strong as the King of France. The Duke of Aquitaine was the strongest man in France.
Would you say "France" was strong at the time?
The Holy Roman Emperor usually was too busy fighting the Pope and his vassals to do anything else. Was the Holy Roman Empire strong or weak?
OK. So all but one. That's like saying Italy won in North Africa because they won ONE battle at Bir el Gubi. STill sucks to be you, RN. You managed to basicaly lose your battle vs Italy - and that's saying a LOT
inb4 "Regia Marina lost lots of ships", google Pyrrhic victory inb4 "Royal Navy won the war", we all know that, so did Rome vs Pyrrhus - after losing all battles
Now serious and without trolling, RM doesn't claim no loses (in fact, they were *staggering* in termns of lives), but they claim a rate of "material/troops tasked to ferry / material/troops actually delivered" over 90% - which is impressive taking into account that Italian armed forces basically sucked.
>So all but one
But it was many more than one.
>managed to basicaly lose your battle vs Italy
Which specific battles did the RN lose?
Not even British, but curious why you're so defensive of Italy.
>Because they got ALL their convoys through
well I guess that was bullshit
>Not even British, but curious why you're so defensive of Italy.
Love for the underdog. It's so much the military laughingstock of Europe, that even the FEW things they did right are usually overlooked.
Charles V was strong. The strongest European monarch of his time. But was he the Spanish nation?
At the time, Spain was Castille and Aragon. They were not united. Charles V also had most of Italy, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium and he was the Holy Roman Emperor. His younger brother was the King of Bohemia and Hungary.
Netherlands didn't belong to Spain. It belonged to the Duke of Burgundy, that happened to also be King of Spain, Holy Roman Emperor, Arch Duke of Austria and so on.
>they claim a rate of "material/troops tasked to ferry / material/troops actually delivered" over 90%
Sounds like it's made up when you look at the number of ships they lost. Around 700 out of 1000 were lost, so that 90% just isn't plausible.
Can you back your claim up?
>At the time, Spain was Castille and Aragon. They were not united
Actually, by the time of Charles I (of SPain, and V of Germany), Spain was united since a couple kings ago.
From the looks of Italian records >>133982579 they didn't do it right. And you again avoided my question after being caught in a lie.
Find something they actually did right and tell me about it. It definitely wasn't anything naval. Didn't they have a hot fighter plane?
>come to /ak/, learn old history
Isabella was Queen of Castille. Her Husband was King of Aragon.
Joanna the Mad (mother of Charles V), was the heir of both. Which, in practice meant that Charles V would actually be the heir.
The King of Aragon disliked the Habsburgs and tried to have a son until the end of his life. That would mean Charles V would be the King of Castille, but not Aragon.
And IIRC, he had different ways of dealing with the nobles of Castille and the nobles of Aragon. Each had its own rules.
>out of 4,199,375 tons of goods embarked, only 449,225 tons failed to reach their destination, i.e. about 10.5%.
>The number of embarked soldiers was 1,266,172, and 23,443 were lost at sea, i.e. 2%:
>caught in a lie.
They had the MC.205 and similar aircraft by other manufacturers. They were already good (fast, good rate of climb, good diving characteristics, balance between vertical and horizontal agility, cannon-based armament) and if the Germans hadn't withheld better engines from the spaghettis a version superior to contemporary Me109s could have been built.
Now if you want to laugh look at shitty italian jets.
I politely remind you I'm from Spain. I've studied that. Isabella was Queen of Castille and Aragon, and Fernando was King of Aragon and Castille since teh day of their marriage - added to their heir being king of both. They even had a motto about that, one that rymes in Spanish, which an be translated as "Same power, same power, for Isabelle and Fernando". In fact, there was a whle civil war before they managed to get their nobles in line and accept it - but they did before they died.
As for teh own rules, know what? even TODAY we have different rules.
The thing I claimed "serious and without trolling" was the 90% material/troops shipped thing. The rest was admitedly trolling another Anon. You should have realizwed for the difference in tone betwen the different posts, and for the line "now serious.
>starts talking his nationality unasked
"I politely etc"
Christ, shut up already.
It was not much more than that.
10 rounds per gun in October 44, 12 rounds per gun for November.
I don't think there are good numbers for December 44 and January 45. Probably it was still officially 12 rpg in each of those two months but due to the German offensives in those months weird stuff happened such as stocks being flown from England to forward units.
So some units in contact got huge windfalls of 76mm and 3" HVAP that may not have been properly accounted for. Some other units might have received nothing.
By March though there were starting to be adequate amounts of the HVAP loaded on the 3" cases, but this was due to the wholesale replacement of the M10 with the M36 and disbanding of large numbers of the 3" towed gun battalions.
HVAP loaded on the 76mm case remained short because the numbers of Hellcats and 76(W) Shermans were constantly increasing in the same time frame.
Yes he did, or so I was told. He was basically forced to yield the government to his son-in-law Philip, which was the one he really hated. He had actually loved his first wife, and he was quite butthurt (hey, even Kings can get so) when teh very same treaty he had signed for his wedding was used to try and take the power away from him. Actually, all that yielded YET another civil war in Spain (yep, they had a civil war when they got the thorne and another one when they left it). But by the end of Charles' reign, he had got an unified country. There was no more talk of separation, not until the XIX Century.
But the REALLY big Empire was the one of his son, Phillip II, who also got Portugal (meaning he had ALL of America, the coast of Africa, and SE of Asia). And that one REALLY was never unified - it got separated one or two Kings later (memory fuzzy here, and I always get the Phillips III and IV wrong). So you see, next time you argue against Spanish History use Phllip II and nobody will have an argument against you.
But by the beginning of his reign, Charles didn't get an unified Spain.
If Ferdinand had a son, Charles would only be King of Castille, Duke of Burgundy, Archduke of Austria and Holy Roman Emperor. At least until he somehow found a way to kill his uncle and get Aragon.
>So some units in contact got huge windfalls of 76mm and 3" HVAP that may not have been properly accounted for. Some other units might have received nothing.
TL;DR: You couldn't actually COUNT with having them handy (something the worst kind of Shermanfags, the ones who are worse than Wheraboos, don't seem to understand. The rest of Shermanfags need not to be offended).
Uh... actually the lack of heir meant he DID get an unified Spain by the begining (he was made King of teh Spains one year *after* the death of Ferdinand). The revolts that almost costed him Castille (not Aragon) took part in the middle of his reign.
>If Ferdinand had a son,...
Good point. That was what Ferdinand intended, out of spite (the whole "forced yo yield to the heir-apparent, now that he isn't King-consort anymore" thing. But he didn't. And at the end, Charles forced *Castille* to remain in Spain through force of *Aragon*'s arms. How ionic is that?
