Girls und Panzer und /ak/
Mal wieder ein neuer Faden.
Would you let Erika cook for you?
Kancolle x Gup soon
tell that to miho, we're doing nuthin
What Yukari does after seeing Miho with Erika
Mika too? So not only unfaithful, but also low standards.
Why don't you drive Ankou Team's vehicle of choice, /ak/?
Because I'm way too rough when changing gears and I'd probably kill that thing.
What's up with Pekoe and polkadots anyway?
You got some kinda problem with Pekoedots?
>some gook floods the futaba thread with gore
Friendly reminder that she's going to be rekt by Centipede and BC Freedom soon.
Thread I posted this in abruptly died, so reposting.
Sailor-fuku to Juusenshq Vol2 ch 5
Got an extra double quote at the beginning.
Also I would recommend removing the periods from the titles. Definitely leave the exclamation points, but periods don't really make sense in titles like this.
>Middle School Girls with huge tits!
"middle school girl with huge tits!"
>You've got some nerve to be so impudent...
"You've got some nerve, being so impudent..."
>Fifth shot: "Let's Party! Mariko's Grandpa is a Colonel."
'Fifth Shot: "Let's Party! Mariko's Grandpa is a Colonel"'
>Why even I had to be invited?
"Why did I have to be invited?" or the significantly more awkward:
"Why did even I have to be invited?"
>Is this Mariko-san's house?
These are both sort of scrunched up in the top of their bubbles.
She's a quadroon.
>That's a real thing!
"That's the real thing!"
>Is it "THAT"?
>What am I saying?
No fucking clue.
>m-muh cool image...
The way this second panel is drawn is so fucking confusing.
>For a Japanese
"For a Japanese person"
This flows more naturally. Referring to somebody as "a Japanese" has sort of fallen out of favor, to the point where it doesn't sound right to a native English speaker anymore. "Japanese" is now used pretty much exclusively as an adjective.
>you were a one fourth?
"you were one fourth?"
"So... soft" Drop the dash, add a space.
>Only this night,
"This night only,"
>Wave you hands,
"Wave your hands,"
>from here on I'll leave the rest to you
"I'll leave the rest to you" or
"from here on out it's up to you"
>And so am I,
"And so will I," or
"And so shall I,"
The other girl just said "I will take on this fight," not "I am taking on this fight."
>This is what you call tank riders!
"These are what you call tank riders!"
"They are what you call tank riders!"
"This is what you call tank riding!"
>Breaking through is a heavy tank's passage to the stage!
Don't really know what this means.
Need a comma here.
>What should we do in case no one stops?
"What should we do if they don't stop?" I think?
Dash does nothing.
"So it's" bad apostrophe here
I assumed so as well.
"not half bad" not generally hyphenated.
Thanks g_z, sorry I'm late on this.
It was this thread but the gore didn't get archived
It wasn't even GuP guro. It was mostly maggots and rotting tissue.
Why not, but Chovy may cook too.
don't tell me that Gyokusai Academy, eh, i mean Chihatan will enter tankatlon too...
More smug. I always thought this yukarin was pretty smug.
The most smug.
Is this /ak/, or is it just GuP general now?
That's some big fuckin' pout right there.
No poblem, I was working on Shidenkai in the meantime.
"Rice juice" makes me think of "agua de horchata"
>Breaking through is a heavy tank's passage to the stage!
Guess they were going for a theatrical analogy? Not entirely sure what she meant either.
That girl in the BG vaguely reminds me of Akebi.
Small fix for this one.
Pic made my day. ty anon.
Nice, I get it now. Can't think of a good way to reword it. brb, sleep.
Is that some tank-op gesture? O-or something?
Quick, she needs more rounds! Here!
Thank You! Here, I'll bring it for you!
Couldn't find a suitable moment to post this.
Now was the correct moment. Ducks would be proud.
Aw, shit. Can't stop this hype train.
>Friendly reminder that she's going to be rekt by Centipede and BC Freedom soon.
To be frank, both Ribbon and BC Freedom have mediocre win records, so don't be surprised if they lose AGAIN.
>>le epic obscure kanji
Not obscure if you know anything about Japan. It is the album of a girl that is released which is not pornography but intended for fapping purposes. The equivalent of swimwear calendars.
Good owner right there. Unleashed pets can cause trouble.
Also, both Saunders and Anzio defeated Shizuka.
>Also, both Saunders and Anzio defeated Shizuka.
In a way, I love that. I think RW might embody the spirit of Senshado much more than even the TV series. Because in he TV series for plot reasons, Miho HAS to win. She has to win all the way because she can't afford a loss.
But that mentality was what was wrong with Black Forest, in that they became obsessed with winning and forgot to have fun. And Miho's need to win undermines that message.
I would appreciate if Shizuka remain a perpetual loser, but a loser who loves every minute of the match she is in and even make her opponents better people at the end. After all, most schools have NEVER won a championship, so it isn't the trophy that keeps them playing. It is all about the love of the game, and I think Shizuka embodies this far better than Miho. If only because the stakes are so low and there is no problem if she lost fair and square. What matters is that she does what she enjoys.
Thats probably why Shizuka does get so well along with Chovy.
>Miho fighting to win is for saving Oarai High School from decommission is different from her need to win for Kuromorimine for preserving its winning streak.
My point is that Miho needing to win makes it difficult to also talk about game sportsmanship. As was shown with Pravda, the team reached the limits of how far they could go in terms of "fun". Every match after that wasn't about having fun, it was about survival. Even the movie was about survival.
Compare to that, Shizuka being a racious loser is just much more refreshing. And we are never having to see her winning impossible matches. Sometimes she loses because she was facing ridiculous odds, and that's okay. I just think that embodies sports much better than desperate struggles.
But that's why I love the show so much. And it also illustrates why I find stuff like LA so weird.
You're describing a core hypocrisy in the major themes of the show. Miho didn't fit with Kuromorimine because winning was all that mattered. She had to find her own senshado. They get to a point during the Pravda match where they decide they should concede because winning isn't all that matters. But then the show is like hey, actually yeah, winning is all that matters. And they just kinda go along with it. This contradiction is brushed aside by saying that at Kuromorimine Miho had to win for the sake of winning, but at Oarai she has to win for her friends. But that's not very satisfying, is it?
But what I think is most clear is that nobody gives a shit. The show is thematically simple to the point of being technically broken. The characters are one-dimensional, the story is lifted from every sports tournament anime ever, etc. That's the joke. That's the central absurdity of the show. It's just about fuckin' tanks. Nobody cared about anything else, they just wanted to make an anime about tanks. Just sell out as hard as you can, as long as we can do whatever we want with the tanks. School girls? Tournament? Short skirts? There are still tanks, right? Sure! How do they not all die? Who cares! Why would school girls be riding tanks in the first place? Who cares! In fact, let's let the audience in on the joke. Let's make it completely ridiculous by putting them on a giant aircraft carrier and saying that tank battles make girls better wives and mothers. It'll be hilarious!
GuP is always best when it's ridiculous to the point of being totally nonsensical. LA tries so hard to ground it in pathos and stuff, which I feel defeats the purpose.
Using school closing as a premise AGAIN in the movie is really like saying "it doesn't matter, look at tanks". And that's fun and all but I have to say, for me a good character-driven show would always be better than not character-driven one. Like a good mecha isn't about robots, it's about characters. You can replace robots with tanks (heh) and it would still work.
Unless a character-driven show is a steaming pile of dogshit like Iron-blooded Orphans. Then I'd rather look at robots.
>What do you mean, she isn't old enough? But... but she's an university student, for christ's sake!
time to try to get at least something done this weekend
Nice to meet you
You're FNC-san I assume?
... Did I make some mistake?
No... This isn't your fault
... It's not like that
Better get ready/prepare yourself, Genko... Browning-sens
Just Genkoku is fine
What do you mean with get ready/prepare myself...
It's about Fal
We are guns, so even if we're broken, we can get cured/fixed by repairing
Our body that is
However, experience and memory are something different
They are held within each of the parts
If most of the parts are lost during repair, then also the memory is lost
So that is no longer the former Fal
- I knew it. Even though I was supposed to know it...
Like you've been to this place before?
While I would've preferred it if you posted the english translation rather, I do have to commend you for actually telling us non-japanese what they are saying, so I tip my hat to you kind sir
HIGHER ON THE STREET
AND I KNOW IT'S MY TIME TO GO
I'd probably read it in Japanese and forgot when Momo posted the raws back then.
But still, if it's her, then maybe-
Or so I thought
No... Don't mind it
I... Ended up taking away her older sister from FNC
Admitting that was scary
nope, haven't TL'd much lately
Is this your first time in an /ak/ thread?
Well... no, I mean shit, like I said, I would've preffered the english translation to be posted rather than the Japanese version, despite that however, I have to commend him for translating what they are saying for those who don't speak japanese.
GuP is about two things:
2. Absurdist comedy
The characters, plot, and themes exist to serve those two masters. Each one of the characters is effective proportional to how much that character is a joke. And given that context, the characters are pretty perfect. They're not supposed to be complex or interesting, they're supposed to be funny.
There's no version with english on the pages yet.
The scans need to be cleaned up and the translations need proofreading first.
That material is the /cgl/ equivalent of streaming anime, playing FPS with controlers, driving a prius, not thining your paints and CCing a hi-point.
I don't go to /cgl/ and even I know that.
I've got some almost pouting fluffies... She's generally too genki to pout.
This is the closest I've got but it mostly looks like under/over bite.
I'm sorry, Sako-san
Not only was I abducted, but I also was used for something that cannot be undone...
I am honestly sorry
I was the one who asked you to act as a spy
So I'm the one at fault
But more important
Is that you're unharmed
I will think about my next step
So take some rest
I will care for Yukari, protect her smile, feed and house her so she can persue her Senshado-enthusiast websites and happiness wherever that takes her. That doesn't mean I will give her what she wants.
I will never spoil this rich soul, everything she has always wanted will always be just out of reach, she will pursue her happiness to her last breath, and, in doing so we will make anime a living, breathing, 2D part of American Society forever and we will Make America Great Again! Thank You!
How dare you...!! To make a fool out of me
However... Until now it was AK47's side that was one step ahead
This is something I have to admit
The next move is the most crucial
There is no way I'll allow AK47 to keep the lead any further than this!!
Is there something
You want from me
You're M16, leader of the Seishou academy middle school, right!?
Here is were you'll-
The first move wins
She rides one of the strongest tanks, most of it's problems (like steel quality) are irrelevant in senshado. Well, except getting stuck. Breaking isn't likely to occur in the span of a match if the tank was maintained properly and if they avoided going into high RPM.
Could've sworn that Maho would be the type to wear black.
Girls leak all kinds of fluids that makes light fabrics look gross so you wear dark colors if you're planning to show your underwear to other people.
I don't think there is a Mr. Nishizumi. Unless its Shiho's dad you are talking about.
Shiho never married Maho and Miho's biological father. She didn't want to have anyone else have a say in how the girls would be raised.
Does the PzII get good gas-mileage?
What about storage space?
What would be the best senshado legal vehicle for DD? A Puma?
Who's the girl on the right?
I can't find her in any class photo.
My dream is to have fluffy children with Yukari.
Which pasta is cutest pasta?
All pastas are great but it feels like most of them are more sexy than cute while Anchovy is just straight up cute.
No fuck you she's mine!
I might say yes to a threesome as long as it doesn't end up with me getting left out.
The charm of Chovy is that she wants to be sexy and mature but she's too cute and innocent to pull it of.
>inb4 someone shops lewd guppies onto the prints
Got her/Did it...
I've already prepared myself against taking that much fire
Don't make light of me
A knapsack with a steel plate (put) inside, huh
But don't worry
Because I won't underestimate you
A tree stripes/lines...!?
This isn't sufficient yet
You'll regret in hell
That you made a fool out of me
*sound of collective Cosmoline leakage*
The one to rescue Funko is her fated rival..!?
and done at last
>*sound of collective Cosmoline leakage*
Turning circle isn't really a problem on American roads. A T17 would probably fit better for a Japanese or European family.
How about an Sumida Type 91?
>The characters, plot, and themes exist to serve those two masters. Each one of the characters is effective proportional to how much that character is a joke. And given that context, the characters are pretty perfect. They're not supposed to be complex or interesting, they're supposed to be funny.
Yes, but if you want sequels you would need something more. Specifically, if your narrative is about "every fight is for survival", then you will hit a brick wall when it no longer make any sense why you are trying to survive for the hundredth time. Like why the hell Liam Neeson's daughter keeps getting kidnapped.
On the other hand, RW's narrative of tanks for tank's sake, of having fun because you want it, is far more sustainable. Shizuka has no need to be world champion, or even national champion. No one is forcing her to beat everyone and anyone or else. She is fighting for fun. And that means in theory Ribbon Warrior can last forever, because it is truly not able winning or losing, but playing the game.
The TV series and movie are classic escalation. Raising the stakes each time until you have no where to go. You can try to have a world championship, but then what? Aliens?
>but then what? Aliens?
Then pic related.
Girls und Transformers when?
I want to give Kay a KV-2, so I can watch as she initially rejects the "Damn commie piece of junk", but then slowly falls in love with its explosive firepower. And I want her to be the S and me to be the M.
She's only allowed to ride it if she does her homework, brushes her teeth and changes her underwear.
You'll have to check of course.
It's not lewd. It's responsible parenting.
She's so plain that she comes around and becomes incredibly sexy.
I thought that's Yukari's trait. The Nishizumis' fluffiness is under appreciated.
Yukaris charm points are her fluffy hair, her boyish sense of fashion, her passion and love dedicated to her hobby, her fit but modest body, her bubbly voice and attitude, her cute ramblings about tanks and military history, her slight social ineptitude and every single other thing about her.
She's perfect in every way and I love her.
But she isn't from a renowned family. She is just a commoner!
This man here knows what he's talking about.
You're not having impure thoughts are you?
You're just admiring the legendary Shiho Nishizumi, right?
She doesn't know any better. She's just doing what her mom did and what the Nishizumi clan has been doing since the 1400s.
Japanese parenting is already pretty fucked up before you add the prestigious bloodline.
Of course! I am just sweating from all the cute. Panzers are pure in my eyes.
For a second there, I thought you were a degenerate.
Miho is fluffier than Yukari. There, I said it.
Don't forget Otto "flak master" Carius, Michael "fick sie untermensch" Wittmann and Erwin "supply lines can't even handle me" Rommel.
Is mako the most under appreciated panzer
"I'm sure it's in there. Keep looking."
WHY IS THIS SO SEXY? FUCK!
THERE'S NOTHING ON DISPLAY. THEY'RE NOT EVEN DOING ANYTHING.
