GuP Little Army 2 Chapter 6.5 and 7 coming up.
Certainly 6.5 is coming up, but 7 isn't done yet (soon™).
Tsuchii's Maho looks good, probably because her hair hides the tsucheekbones.
Had to ad "no," in there, otherwise it just wouldn't work as intended, sigh.
It's empty in the raws as well (I knew someone will mention it).
Anchovy traumatized for life.
And that's it for LA2 6.5, I did cleans for both 6.5 and 7 together and only finished typesetting of 6.5 so far. Shouldn't take that long for me to finish 7.
Hope someone could help in translating the names of Bellwall's crew. Pic Related.
As large as the C-5 Galaxy they're flying.
No, they don't have a large role; the only time we see them is when they're flying a plane (example: >>134012856).
Tbh, I'm quite happy they shunned Saunders for other teams; Saunders was by far the worst and most boring team.
>posting artifacted garbage
Is that why you spoilered it, because you knew it was crap? For fuck's sake nigger.
from the screenshots I've been able to see, it looks like the main adversary of the film uses late-war/post-war equipment; M26 Pershings (late 1944, early 1945) and what looks to be either a Mk II or Mk III Centurion, the former of which was just before the war ended, and the later of which didn't enter service until 1948.
So this school which appears to model itself after the UN appears to be actively bending or breaking the rules.
Wat, I was just trying to share a photo
A brief summery of der new Movie from japan
>not knowing about qooapp
That's common in a lot of that artist's action shots. He plays with the angles a lot but it usually ends up awkward
still fucking love that manga, though
From what I know, at least one source DID get a camrip (and I've even seen one shot that might be from it) but they want to sub it before they release. Hadn't heard from them ever since.
>I've been always thinking that I need to apologize
"I've always thought that I needed to apologize"
"I've always been thinking that I need to apologize"
Also, shouldn't it just be "championship," not "championships?"
>that nishizumi maho's team
Should probably just be "nishizumi maho's team" but some other options:
"that girl nishizumi maho's team"
"that nishizumi maho team"
"participating schools' "
>let's do our best as not to leave any regrets...
"let's do our best so as not to leave any regrets..." is a little more normal
They are called "chaps", anon. Doesn't look like leather, but it's something that ranchers would wear to protect their legs while riding. They also helped in saving on weight.
Go on the /ak/ wiki. It lists pretty much all the side material. Little Army is pretty important, as it's basically a prequel, RIbbon Warrior is pretty great
If you don't mind rampant lesbians, Maginot is about a practice match with a french school, Motto Love Love or whatever it's called is a pretty funny gag manga, and Little Army 2 is, you guessed it, a sequel to Little Army that takes place after the main series. Oh, and if you haven't already read it, the official manga is pretty decent, especially if you like Yukari, although the Anzio battle got retconned by the OVA. I probably forgot some things, as their is a lot of extra material for GuP.
>that nishizumi maho's.
Solved by adding quotes for emphasis.
Ah, this makes sense.
Looks good friend.
Uhh, I think you missed the missing text, unless you are still working on it.
Hey, when he's done with Little Army 2, want me to dump Part 4 of Groundless for a good old proofread? I finished it last night, but had some turkey to destroy, so I couldn't post it up this morning.
Weird. Why not add a "..."?
Yeah, I'll wait for AP to finish up anything else he want's to ask. It's not Black Friday shopping here, luckily. I'll keep this thread auto updated so I catch anything you post later.
Cool, I'll be up for another hour or so, so I might drop mine first. Thank god /a/ has a bigger image limit than /k/. I love dumping for the anons there, but it's such a pain if the thread gets spammed.
Lets finish this Chapter out, yeah! This seriously took me a while to do. Hopefully later chapters will be more like 5-9 days, tops.
Part 4 of Groundless, other parts are on Batoto and the /ak/ wiki.
And as always, comments, criticisms, and shitposts are welcome!
Already caught a problem on this page.
>With devastating results...
I'll fix it this and everything else tomorrow night.
Hope you all liked it!
I'll be working on Chapter 2 over the weekend, and should have it out by this next Thursday, or earlier.
Looks like the new more raburabu chapter will be about Shiho
>that little mark under her eye
Amazing, that's all that's needed to portray someone who's a
And looks like I need to change that, seeing that Tank Corner 6 was finally finished.
I'll be back later, you all have a good [insert time of day here]!
But Shiho is love!
Éclair agreed, don't bother her about it
I already did a pass over this stuff, didn't I? Probably on the translation script before typesetting?
I feel like this is as far as I've read. Everything looks good so far.
Should be done by this weekend.
That's his name, right?
>it would be good if it increases the baby's value, but considering the risks associated with trafficking her, it wouldn't be worth it.
"it would be good if it increased the baby's value, but considering the risks associated with trafficking her, it wouldn't be worth it."
"it'll be good if it increases the baby's value, but considering the risks associated with trafficking her, it won't be worth it."
>willing to buy the baby at this time?
"at this time" is awkward. These are less so:
"willing to buy the baby at the moment?"
"willing to buy the baby right now?"

Wait, why does she have a baby? I wasn't paying attention. Also that panel is fucking fantastic. Love everything about it.

This is weird, but I'm not sure what to do with it.
Comma is unnecessary again.
Man she's cute as fuck with that baby. So motherly.
This comma is particularly off-putting.

"and he even gave nadia back to me" sounds way more natural.

>but i never considered being able to hold this child again, so i never thought about what would happen if she ever returned to me.
Switching the verb choice around a bit can significantly improve this sentence:
"but i never thought i would be able to hold this child again, so i hadn't considered what would happen if she ever returned to me."
Actually the most natural way to word it would probably be:
"but i thought i would never be able to hold this child again, so i hadn't even considered what would happen if she somehow returned to me."
Medic-san is so fucking best.
>your skill are equal to
"your skill is equal to"
>my first credit
I'm definitely enjoying Groundless, but I do feel like I'm only half-paying attention to the actual story when I'm proofreading. I'll have to re-read it when it's all assembled I guess. I'm gonna be real upset when everybody starts dying off or if the happy mother and child are torn apart.
Have to agree. It provides no capability that the other tanks already hadn't (the
Pershings' 90mm and the Centurion's 17-pdr were more than able to deal with any Oarai tank), while being a liability itseelf. (Only tonk in "Oarai Z" that could stand to those guns would be the Tiger II, and even so only through the front armor - sides were still vulnerable, and a single tonk in a vs 30battle, that's not an "unlikely happenstance", but a certainty).
Hey, even the
Karl-Gerathad a bigger reason to be, if the OST track names are to be trusted. But the T28 is just dildos.
It truly needs explaining what's written in the tanks. And since they mention the kanji so much, a redraw might not be the best option, so... TL note? There's ample room in teh page for a discreet one
Don't demand that of me, please. I've never read handwritten kanji, its a torture to me.
Their outfits are friggin' cool.
>Let's go ask them

>Hey, respected rival, might you be so kind as to provide us with the name, data, past feats and background of whatever units are you deploying at this planet? It is so we can bet among urselves upon which of us will have the honor of attacking you with the minimum possible of force to get the job done. Thanks in advance.
>dat reference to CA2
Seems that the CA chapters that aren't blatantly out of continuity (like, the one where all are rabbits) are to be treated as secondary canon instead of as simple fanart
From what I see judging by the few easier ones its just chuuni stuff.
Something like that.
Good question. Coming right up.
>she said she's going to do an all-nighter doing repairs
"she said she was going to pull an all-nighter doing repairs"
"do an all-nighter" is awkward for two reasons: "pull an all-nighter" is way more idiomatic, at least as far as my experience and limited research go, and "do" and "doing" echo awkwardly in the sentence. Also I'm assuming she's tired because she was up LAST night doing the repairs, meaning it should be past-tense.
>So that they are
I think this is intended as "So they are"? As in, she's just agreeing with the previous statement that kanji are the best. "So that they are" would imply that she is performing some action in order to make it so that kanji are the best. So if she's just agreeing, then it should be "so they are" or "yes they are" or "that's so"
>we've got same tanks
"we've got the same tanks"
>since we're at it
"while we're at it" is a little more idiomatic, but that's a quibble
>want to attach school emblems onto them
"attach" is usually more about joining two parts, which arguably works, but any of these would be a bit more fitting:
Also "onto" would probably be better than "on" here.
"while we're at it we want to print school emblems onto them."
Damn, having trouble uploading this file. Gotta refresh this thing.
And fuck street view images captcha.
Not-Erika was in fact Rape-chan. Raep taimu.
Wasn't around here then.
See, faggot-kun? THIS is a rape face. Pic related is a smug face.
Now, with ProofreaderAnon's changes.
>we will be moving to the special stage prepared by association with a ship
I'm a little confused by this. Did some "association" prepare the stage? Then it should be "prepared by the association" and if they're moving via ship to the stage, then it should be "on a ship" or "via ship."
"we will be moving to the special stage prepared by the association on a ship."
Even so, it's a bit ambiguous. It still sounds like the association used the ship to prepare the special stage. This is the most clear:
"we will move via ship to the special stage prepared by the association."
OR maybe I'm confused and it's actually meant to say that we will move by means of association with a ship. Like our team will "associate" with a ship and then that ship will take us to the special stage which has been prepared. In that case "association" is a really odd word choice. I feel like there's probably some appropriate (possibly nautical) jargon which would be correct here, but barring that, you've got stuff like "rendezvous," "assemble," and "muster" or even "board"
"we will board a ship which will move us to the special stage which has been prepared."
"we will rendezvous with a ship which will move us to the special stage which has been prepared."
Something like that. This is probably too much effort for one speech bubble.
>what tanks will they be using
"what tanks they will be using"
Ah damn, I didn't include the other fix.
About the school emblems, its supposed to be attaching the emblems on tanks (those flags painted with emblems). Changed "on them" to "on tanks" should make more sense.
Oh, they're actually attaching the FLAG to the tank? In that case it was probably better before, hah. What would really clear it up would be to change "emblem" to something like "flag" or "banner." "Emblem" usually refers to the symbol or device itself, not the physical banner it's printed on. That they're going onto the tanks is pretty clear:
"while we're at it, we want to attach school banners to them."
This would be totally fine.
Ugh association... changed to organisers, also re-phrased.
Yeah, but what she says is "attaching the emblem", its just that the way they are doing it is to paint it on something making it a banner. The usual Japanese thinking leap.
>Sturmtiger is short range - K gets used for stupidly long range. That's why I mentioned it does have a niche (in a battle so big, you can afford to have one niche tonk)
I didn't say it didn't have a niche. I said the consquences are huge, unpleasant, and totally not worth it. The explanation itself gets unpleasant, but bear with me - hopefully I set up the spoiler tags right so the wrong parts don't show (no preview function).
The biggest difference is that Sturmtiger is definitey legal, while
Karl Geratis definitely NOT based on the rules they've laid down so far. Based on common sense, it isn't a tank or even an armored fighting vehicle - it is a railway seige gun that can shuffle off the rails a bit. In a technical sense, its base is definitely WWII technology, but it is not even open-topped - the crew is completely exposed and has to be. From reviews, what seemed to have happened is that they closed-up and automated the thing (automation of loading 500mm plus shells is not WWII technology) and the Chairman of the JSF approved the whole lot.
So, they named the JSF Chairman after
Mutaguchi Renya and Tsuji, so he isn't a good guy, he's in cahoots with MEXT and so he approved it. We can almost leave it at that, but there's University All-Stars team, who accepted and employed the weapon.Think about what this choice makes them.
http://gunji.blog.jp/archives/1045828275.html & http://kjya.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/2015/11/post-83bd.html
The fact is
The federation decide what is and isn't legal. You can argue that they were making shit up but them's the breaks. The fact is as soon as you have a united team of all the characters you can no longer play by normal rules and still have an interesting and challenging game. The rules are broken to make things harder, and the university students have no reason to disagree with the organisers. The University students don't know the stakes and just think of it like a crazy match. Do the uni students even know Oorai is at stake or not?
>This time, youre
Also the comma is unnecessary.
Trying to figure out the possession here is a sordid matter, but I'd recommend:
>oi land dirt
"oil and dirt"
>on verge of exploding
"on the verge of exploding" The "verge" is a locality which you can be on or near, not a state itself. Anyway, the common idiom is "on the verge."
You've got American "rumor" here and British "rumours" here >>134031883
>i'm saying, the reason for this time's defeat is lapse in your judgement.
Awkwardly phrased, and it should be "a lapse"
"i'm saying the reason for the defeat this time is a lapse in your judgement."
Very British, hah
>members have transferred
This all seems to be past-tense, meaning it should be "members transferred"
>you have transferred schools soon after
Yeah, it's definitely past-tense, should be "you transferred schools soon after"
>i've remained in the team
>i've had a temper back then
"i hade a temper back then"

>I've no clue what did she do when
"I've no clue what she did when"
>as if i was

>I need to make us to win this
Should either be:
"I need to make us win this"
"I need us to win this"
>morale are perfect
"morale is perfect"

There's also a 1/1 Maus shot available.
Japan's Kuromorimine's is all right. It's the team of Japanese school Kuromorimine, thus Japan's Kuromorimine's team.
Changed "those people" to "these people" as she indicated the teammates behind Emi.
Let me put it this way.
You are a top-level university kendoist. One day, you are told that your TEAM is to fight ONE high-schooler. Around the same time, the authorities send you a beautiful katana complete with sharp steel blade. The day of the match, authority comes and swears they've cleared all the red tape you can use the katana in the match. You will:
1) not at least suspect Authority is antagonistic to said High-Schooler
2) not suspect that regardless of the authority's words, such a course of action (using a clearly illegal weapon) will make *you* not only a rule-breaker, but a criminal? The authority will have a million escape routes to your none once you actually employ it.
3) even if you are *sure* you won't be prosecuted, not feel the slightest moral reticence against using such a weapon when you are already a university student TEAM picking on a high-schooler (remember, up until the morning of the match it was supposed to be 30:8).
Really, you will have no cause to argue with the organizer?
I am sure even though it was illegal, at no point was it meant to kill anyone. It might seem hard to believe but I doubt physical harm was intended. It is just a shocking super-weapon that looks good on screen and the intent wasn't murder.
Considering you haven't even seen the movie personally, trying to speculate on character's behaviors and motivations off someone else's reviews - which have a chance of being biased or inaccurate - means that any premature judgement becomes just that: premature.
It's why I don't look at reviews before I see a movie, because I don't want my judgement to be clouded by someone else's personal impression.
Besides, this is Girls Und Panzer, where the safety gear used is made out of Deus Ex Machinium to enforce the no violence claus. I doubt even a superweapon like that was meant to kill.
>i hade a temper back then
>error in my suggestions
Fuck, every time I do this I'm really scared it's gonna make it into the final. I really don't want to be responsible for any simple errors like this as a proofreader hah
it could be worse. at least we know its going to take that long so we can plan our lives around the date rather than just check every day and cross our fingers hoping that today is going to be the day.
Wait, woah. It's a miracle.
I noticed it when fixing, no probs.
I didn't say they are meant to kill but all this changes is the exact charges that will be thrown against you.
ALL martial arts are constant challenges to the Penal Code. Even a harmless blow is Assault (Article 208), and of course it is Injury (204). For Senshado Injury is rare, but Damage to Property (261) is extremely common, and possession and discharge of Firearms is covered under another law.
What saves martial artists from constant prosecution is Article 35, which says acts performed in accordance to laws or in proper business (正当な業務) are not punished. Under this, even if you KILL your opponent (Homicide - 199) in a match, you have an excellent chance of getting off if you kept to all the rules and norms of your art. But to be proper business, it has to be done with the proper WEAPONS (that's where the kendo analogy comes in). Sword (even wooden) in judo match, no. Katana in kendo match, no.
And while the JSF chairman does have a certain amount of discretion (just like his kendo counterpart might determine what lengths of wooden swords are allowed) and beyond that, one might claim a certain area in which she can claim mitigation by citing the authority, there are limits. I think we can agree really Karl ain't even close.
So, every time Gerat commander fires, she breaks firearms laws and every time she hits/near misses an enemy tank, she's violating the Penal Code and praytell if for once that Carbon gives out. And Alice who's directing this whole effort can't be let off either.
That's before the moral aspects. It might be cool, until you think about it. Is the coolness worth that much? All this unpleasantry and controversy can be avoided if only they chose another weapon!
Your assumption is that anyone was in any danger. The fact is the intention was not to kill. Any number of measures could be used to minimise the effects of the rounds used. Unless you think this was intending to be a lethal weapon, the guidelines should still be in effect and they are just as safe as any other tank. You can't assume it was meant to be lethal if there is no evidence to support it. Carbon Coating is a thing. Your arguments can't make sense because if it applies for GuP then many of the girls would not have survived the TV series.
>Did I say it was meant to be lethal, or was I pointing out that you don't have to be lethal, or even cause injury for it to become a crime?
It isn't a crime if no one gets hurt. Your entire argument simply fails as your logic renders the entire Senshado sport impossible to exist. Thus by the fact that Senshado exists, your logic must be flawed.
>It isn't a crime if no one gets hurt. Your entire argument simply fails as your logic renders the entire Senshado sport impossible to exist.
The moment property damage occurs, it is a crime. I even cited you the number (261) so you can look up the article in the Japanese Penal Code in your own time.
>Thus by the fact that Senshado exists, your logic must be flawed.
As for this question, I put up my answer again:
What saves martial artists from constant prosecution is Article 35, which says acts performed in accordance to laws or in proper business (正当な業務) are not punished. Under this, even if you KILL your opponent (Homicide - 199) in a match, you have an excellent chance of getting off if you kept to all the rules and norms of your art. (Addition: Thus, lesser crimes like Injury and Damage to Property are dealt similarly.)
But to be proper business, it has to be done with the proper WEAPONS (that's where the kendo analogy comes in). Sword (even wooden) in judo match, no. Katana in kendo match, no.
>The moment property damage occurs, it is a crime.
You realize this is the show where hotel owners rejoice at having their establishments destroyed in a Senshado match because they'll get richly compensated for them right? And you realize this is the show where matches that involve throwing live rounds in a city where people usually live and work is not only normal, but acceptable as well.
Property damage means not a damn thing in GuP.
In fact, the very fact that the owners are richly compensated to joy is a sign that property laws are working just fine in GuPverse - they are being paid amply and pre-emptively to avoid any significant chance of a lawsuit and to make sure even if such a lawsuit took place, the judge would dismiss it because they were amply compensated.
But all that is civil law, which is separate from criminal law. That's true both in Japan and common-law countries like America. Without Article 35, indeed, Senshado would end pretty quickly. The Federation can pay off property owners all they want, but people will still be prosecuted (as opposed to sued) for damaging property.
Nice pic ... where do these come from?
>In fact, the very fact that the owners are richly compensated to joy is a sign that property laws are working just fine in GuPverse - they are being paid amply and pre-emptively to avoid any significant chance of a lawsuit and to make sure even if such a lawsuit took place, the judge would dismiss it because they were amply compensated.
Then you are still not making sense. Because your constant complaints about collateral damage assumes that they mattered. Which in GuP is NEVER the case. If that's where your argument stand then you have no argument.
>The Federation can pay off property owners all they want, but people will still be prosecuted (as opposed to sued) for damaging property.
And yet we've never seen any of the schools be prosecuted for property damage of any kind, nor Miho and every other Senshadoka get prosecuted as a direct result of their actions. GuP would've been a very different show if it became Law and Order: Damage Control.
In a Senshado match, property damage is fair game. As long as no one is hurt, and that is assured by Deus Ex Machina that is carbon coating, there is nothing they do in GuP relating to property damage that'll matter one bit.
>Then you are still not making sense. Because your constant complaints about collateral damage assumes that they mattered. Which in GuP is NEVER the case. If that's where your argument stand then you have no argument.
Here's the thing, I did not even say collateral damage. I know the
Gerat killed at least one Panther, but no one bothered to write in the reviews how many buildings, if any it destroyed.
Let me try to simplify my argument for you:
1) Civil law aside, Property damage is a criminal offense.
2) Senshado destroys a lot of property, not just buildings, but the tanks themselves, which is also property.
3) Players don't get imprisoned for this property damage because the Penal code has clauses saying as long as you are doing acts as part of proper business, you shouldn't be punished.
4) This is the same clause that ensures that kendo and judo players don't get punished for hitting and often hurting and very occasionally killing each other.
5) When you use improper equipment, you are no longer conducting proper business.
Karl-Geratis not proper equipment.
7) Thus, when a player uses a
Karl-Gerat, she is not causing property damage as part of proper business, she is just causing property damage.
8) This is a criminal offense (see step 1).
9) Thus, in making the
Universityteam use a Karl-Geratmakes them _________.
10) And we could have avoided all this just by choosing a different weapon.
Does this help?
I am starting to think you are trolling. Please tell me you are not?
Because it doesn't matter how powerful the gun is, if no one dies and property damage is expected and consider normal operations. Your entire argument just dances around in circles and assume things that literally would not make sense in the GuP universe. All you fully serious?
>Because it doesn't matter how powerful the gun is, if no one dies and property damage is expected and consider normal operations.
This is incorrect from a legal standpoint. Even if you have the same result, there is a significant difference in outcomes depending on whether you used the proper weapon or not.
Let's go back to the kendo analogy. You get into a match. You kill your opponent. Do you think your chances of walking free are the same whether you used a wooden sword like you were supposed to or a katana?
Tell me, what part of my argument is difficult to understand?
>This is solved in #3..Please read it (and also the supplementary addition of #4).
Your argument is entirely fictitious. None of the Senshado weapons are suppose to kill anyone. Anyone who is killed died from a sport-related accident. The federation determine what is legal or illegal, including the use of modern electrical wiring for WW2 tanks.
Your argument about deaths is irrelent because that was not the intent and not the result. So there is no problem.
Your argument on collateral damage is nonsensical because collateal damage is expected and budgeted for.
Your argument for legal problems apply for every tank in the game, from the smallest tankette to the biggest KV-2. Accident happens and anyone could get killed. This is known. Your argument just have no grounds to stand on here.
>When you use improper equipment, you are no longer conducting proper business.
If the guys in charge of the rules said they can use the Karl-Gerat, what's stopping them from not using it?
Its more like if the rule-makers of Kendo suddenly saying that real katanas are now legal, and everyone uses them because of the advantages a real sword gives over a wooden one. Wanting to win is a perfectly normal reaction.
Why would you blame the competitors for any casualties when the rules are made in the first place to protect the competitors and the assholes decided to change them so they can fuck over a certain group of people?
If anything goes wrong, people would blame the guys in charge of the rules, not the people that technically followed the rules and accidentally killed their opponent.
Senshado is a fucking dangerous sport even with the safety regulations, Miho could have gotten her head shot off by a shell, or get injured or killed by MG fire, or get injured when the tank flips(The italian team?), or her tank might even, like that one time, fall off a cliff and into the sea, where she and her crew CAN drown.
And that's not even counting potential accidents like a tank accidentally running over someone who got off their tank to do other stuff like scouting, like that time Mako was sleeping in the field or Yukari getting off the tank to scout. Or the crew getting burnt from trying to put out a fire(Duck team)
One more thing, ramming. They DON'T wear helmets, a hard enough ram on an unsuspecting tank could slam their heads on whatever metal bits that is in the tank. The time where Hana got knocked out comes to mind. Hell, they don't even need to ram, something with a big gun like the KV-2 firing and hitting their target could easily slam the crew's head against whatever that is in their tank when the shell hits the tank even if the shell bounced.
>I am starting to think you are trolling.
I'm starting to think he's overthinking.
The TL;DR of the issue is:
This isn't real world. This is the GuPverse. It's safe to assume that laws are different - they are, at least regarding tank-driving by minors. All discussion is moot.
SInce thwy've been having somersaults in the tank since the series aired, it's clear you haven't watched it if you're even worried about it having results with the girls. Worse they eever had was Aya having to get a brocken glasses to be able to claim they broke for dramatic effect.
>I'm starting to think he's overthinking.
I was actually kind of waiting for this "over-thinking" criticism. Here's my riposte. It is true that most viewers of the film will not really process it that deeply and I have no intention to criticize them for it - we all have our style. On the other hand, since we are catering to an otaku population, it is inevitable that at least some will look into it more deeply, and not all of them will be looking only at the tanks.
A good show gives a deep-reader the same general feeling, just with more detail. As an alternative, the deep-reader can get a different, but fun in its own way reading - that also works. If once you get deep you run into problems like mine, not so good, especially when at least IMHO it is so easily avoided.
>It's safe to assume that laws are different - they are, at least regarding tank-driving by minors.
Certainly, there are some laws that are clearly different. However, that should not be a clause to assume all laws are different, especially since that is nominally Japan and thus it has the same basic value systems.
When analysis of a particularly issue starts, an assumption is made that the target world is "basically" our world, plus the known differences. This allows a relatively consistent base for analysis.

Except the "issue" isn't that they can't use superweapons. The "issue" is that senshado is dangerous and can kil people. And by that argument the entire universe collapses. This is the equivalent of saying "magic doesn't exist" in a fantasy universe.
>If the guys in charge of the rules said they can use the
Karl-Gerat, what's stopping them from not using it?
Moral issues aside, there is the very real problem of whether this excuse will be accepted by the courts.
A head's powers and domain are in interaction with other forces. For example, he suddenly declares that katanas are OK in matches. That is a de facto permission for countless kendo practitioners to hold real blades and is a direct attack on the 銃刀法 (Gun and Knive control law). The government won't accept this; should anybody start using blades in matches, they'll be arrested and tried. He will try to use Article 35 in his defence, but since it is not a law (法令) justifying his action, he'd have to justify it as 正当な業務 (proper business), which is dependent on cultural mores and norms, which of course the kendo head can't change on a whim. The chances of it being accepted is low because otherwise the court is de facto saying that a kendo head (one man) can change national law itself on his whim, which is clearly unacceptable.
The position with a Karl-Gerat is similar. Tanks, of course, have guns and thus again rub right into the 銃刀法. The 1945 thing is not just a safety consideration. That Senshado is allowed is in essence a partial weakening of the 銃刀法 and thus exactly what is allowed is also a balance between government (by extension the People, at least in principle) and the needs of Senshado. There are also other interests and norms involved (likey more than kendo) so again, the head is again not actually free to just change things massively on a whim.
no sign the rules have actually changed & Karlain't even close to the boundaries already set. In short, even the rules essentially say that weapon is impermissible, which only further weakens the case for Art35. The scenario is exactly as I propose here >>134034172.
Jesus man, yes a cartoon with a premise as stupid as high school tank fighting is unrealistic. They go to school on city ships that are five miles long and twice as tall as the Empire State Building. I know the autism itch you get when you just want to pick something apart, but really, the energy expenditure is not worth it.
>The "issue" is that senshado is dangerous and can kill people
Actually, my main issue was
the criminality of the Karl-Gerat and those who use it. I also said that property damage and possession of illegal arms is in itself a criminal offense. Even if you disagree, how you can possible think "killing" is the main issue is a question for me.
>The government won't accept this
Not if they are also in on this shit so they can fuck over a certain group of people which is very likely.
They want Ooarai to close down, to cut down on the cost of the school carriers. Or maybe they want to use the fuckhuge carriers for whatever other purposes.
Either way, if they are specifically targetting Ooarai and want to get their school carrier scrapped or whatever, we can assume it ain't just the organisers that want to fuck them over, because the government runs the carriers.
The whole determination to
cut Oarai and just Oarai is a bit of a mystery, but that's for another topic.
BTW, have you noticed that
you are not defending the university girls, just saying the government won't prosecute them for one reason or another?Though I actually agree with this basic point, you seem to be de facto conceding they are bad!they still aren't going into my favor like they should be.
After all, if your defense to a charge their activity is criminal is to say the whole government will move lines and change laws to keep everything they do "legal", then you are saying they *are* criminals just that no one can get them.
That might keep them out of jail, but
And you know what's the margin? I'm sure, even without looking, that otherwise they look pretty decent. Alice will look very cute with Boko. In fact, the
Senshado Chairman could have looked pretty decent (his other contribution being to help push for the match).All wasted and for a mere Karl-Gerat. A gun I'm sure very few fans asked for because in their minds too, that wasn't even a TANK.
I rest my case - whatever coolness it had is not worth it...
Not just that. See >>134038367. He's trying to impose IRL laws and situations upon a series whose WHOLE PREMISE centers around it NOT working like IRL. I mean, I enjoy a good tankgurment
(look, Mo, I invented a new word!)like anyone else, and I've even mentioned how IRL works to show how the Student Council actions actually made a (moderate) ammount of sense, but he's taking it to a whole new level. I mean, using IRL Japanese law (a very nogunz country, as /k/ would say) to explain Sensha-do? Godfuckingdamnit, Anon.
It only shot like twice or thrice, wasn't even close to hitting anyone, then slipped and rolled over. Stop bullying the best tank damn it.
Based on this, it's the Mk.1 with the 17pdr. Also fits with the lyrics of its image song as well which mentions the gun.
>Federation paying off collateral damage
Where DOES get a sport of all things get so much money to do stuff like this?
It would have to be several times more profitable than soccer to even have a chance.
Yeah. Dain is his name, doesn't really
show up again as far as I know.
>I'm gonna be real upset...
Um. Y-yeah... I-I... I'm not going to say anything. Course, I don't know the ending, so I really shouldn't anyway. I can say that
moar gun porn, and even tanks crewed by a brown Sophia-like personby Volume 5!
Also, it's fine about going slowly though it, focus on the more popular stuff first. I'm just doing this in my free time, really.
I'll be fixing this stuff ASAP, then posting it up on Batoto and the wiki by tonight.
You two, you better be trolling for mistaking a 20mm Polsten autocannon (coax with the 17-pounder in ten of the twenty Centurion Mk I pilot models) and a Ordnance QF 20 pounder (fitted upon the Centurion Mk III)
I knoe this isn't tank related but, I need that image that gets posted a lot with animu girls being operator as fuck in a building. Does someone have it?
Nothing really. The thing is, Anon was mistaking the 20mm Polsen (the coaxial autocannon the Centurion Mk1 had, because MGs are for pusies), a perfectly legal-for-Senshado gun (in fact, the one of the movie has one), and the QF 20-pounder (84mm), at1948, post-war model that was fitted upon Mk 3 (and retrofitted Mk2) Centurions until the L7 105mm came and replaced it.
Sory for slowpoke, busy in another thread
I'm still impressed that Girls Und Panzer managed to have an all schoolgirl cast and not resort to lesbian fan service like it every other new anime I see. I enjoyed the simplicity and honesty of GUP. it was about tanks and schoolgirls, no more no less.
Erwin is best girl.
Between that and the content of your post, one can only deduce that you should eat shit.
Posting official art.
I'm just going by the show and I saw no lesbian subtext aside from comedy.
And I'm serious, any time i browse /a/ half the threads are Moe shit with lesbians. its part of the trend you're all supporting, anime is turning into pure fan service and you all know it. Valkyrie drive?
He was right.
anime characters-behave less and less like human beings because their creators don't know human emotions.
It's a tie between the M5A1 Stuart and the T-72.
But GuP has a lot of fanservice merchandise. And nobody wants animu characters behaving like 3DPD besides normalfags.
To be honest It was jsuta round aboutt way of asking if there were or are lesbians in GuP. I've only watched the show, are the comics canon is there lesbian fan service?
Also, why is it wrong to ask for characters to have realistic emotions?
