Three hours later, you're staring down a narrow ravine. Oorai's tanks have assembled themselves above a series of switch-backs along the narrow gravel road up the valley. As it passed through the pass, it eventually wound back down and joined a paved road that itself led back to the city of Oorai. The plan is for Miho's Panzer IV to act as bait- get Darjeeling's attention and drag them into the killzone below."Oi!" Patrick calls out. "Message from Saori!"You slide back down into the tank. "What's up?" You ask. "Enemy contact?""Sure is!" He sing-songs. "Numbers and composition?" You ask excitedly. You don't know what the answer is but you're praying that British MBTs aren't in your immediate future."Sec." He says and relays the request. "Reports three Matildas and..." He waits for her transmission to finish. "Well, that answers that question. Saori says they've got a Black Prince. Yukari confirmed it." You smile. A Black Prince isn't exactly a bad tank- it's a modification of the Churchill VII- one more more popular heavy tank conversions- still as slow as it's predecessor but bigger, more heavily armored and packing a 17-pounder."Alright, patch me over to the rest of the group." You say with a grin as you hear your headset buzz and pop to signal you've got a channel. "All Oorai forces, enemy contact confirmed- composition is three Matildas and a Black Prince Churchill.">"Be ready to fire on my mark.">"Fire when ready!">"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"
>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"I'm looking at you, Momo.
>"Be ready to fire on my mark.">"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"
>>25275115>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!">"Be ready to fire on my mark."Safety first.
>>25275115>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"
>>25275115>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"please momo, don't do FF this time....
>>25275115>>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"
>>25275115>"Be ready to fire on my mark."An ambush works best if everybody opens fire at once. Get as much damage done before they can react to it. Plus we can hold off until the P IV clears the killzone.
>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"Oh god this just due to Momo (who would be the one to nail an ally due to her horrible accuracy)if Momo was a SRW character, Lock-on/strike would cost 50 SP
>>25275115>"Be ready to fire on my mark.">"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"Lets not start this match off by blowing our ally to smithereens.
>>25275115>>"Be ready to fire on my mark."Pick your goddamn targets. Gotta make that first volley count.
>>25275218She wouldn't even have those buffs. If she did, she won't have enough SP for it. She'll just break down crying again.
>>25275115>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"And it seems there is only 4 of them. Most curious. There has to be another 1 or 2 out there I wager
>>25275115>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!">"Be ready to fire on my mark.""And that means you, Momo!"In that order.
>>25275115>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!">"Be ready to fire on my mark."Momo, if you fuck this up...
>>25275115>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"And be extra mindful of the two missing Brit tanks.
>>25275252>There has to be another 1 or 2 out there I wagerTrailing behind the others, using them as bait?
>>25275252Likely, but it is what it is. We'll have to try and take whatever kills we can early on.I doubt we are going to have an easy fight, they might be arrogant as all heck, but they aren't stupid.
>>25275277that or taking a longer route to out flank us or cut off the retreat
+1 for clear majority
>>25275252Probably already in the town to cut off our retreat
For the record, this is what we're up against, as for voting...>"Be ready to fire on my mark.">"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"
>>25275306We shouldn't assume too much as wasn't that how we lost against Miho?
>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"Aim for tea, not Sauerkraut.>>25275163>That artist...
>>25275115>Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!A blue-on-blue situation wouldn't be ideal right now
>>25275115>"Wait until the Panzer IV clears the killzone!"We should concentrate our fire on the BP, that 17-pounder is scary and it has enough armor that none of the other tanks have a hope in hell of stopping it.
>>25275434Though, if we can track it and flank it, that's probably a better plan, since it has shitty rear armor.
>>25275434Additionally, while the BP can probably bounce all of our shots from the front, we can easily one-shot the Matildas, and every one of those we kill now is one less that we have to deal with later.
>>25275488Hey, hold still a second.
>>25275434Bad idea. If we kill the 'tildas now, the BP will be completely alone. And then we become the hunter.
>>25275488With HVAP, we can penetrate 200+mm of armor at 1000 yards.http://www.wwiivehicles.com/usa/guns/90-mm.asp
>>25275514Yes, they can poke us to death, but we can at least kill them back; something the rest of our team cannot be relied upon to do.
Friendly reminder that Jack can skullfuck anything the other schools have to offer, including the Maus from just under a kilometer.
>>25275570I'm more worried about them killing everyone else
>>25275522So yeah, kill the Matildas, then track the BP and keep it occupied while our teammates flank it.
>>25275612He's also a lumbering beast and we can't afford to have to fall back. Our gun length means we can't do shit in streets
>>25275633So? We snipe.
"Alright, ladies! Load up and be ready to fire on my mark!" You close the mic. "Roy, ready AP." Roy retrieves the round from the ready rack and loads it. "Patrick, let the Panzer IV know that we're ready on our end- they just need to drag them into the net."The Black Prince is a big tank, and probably has more than enough armor to shrug off most of the team's fire, but it's not immune to Black Jack's T54. "Rose, gonna prioritize the Black Prince, but be ready to switch if-""Commander, another message." Patrick interrupts. "Saori's saying something about Little John?" He comments, sounding confused. What did she want with a rap-"Oh Jesus." You remember what that is now. "Squeezebores. The Matilda's are packing squeezebores." While it didn't matter much for the rest of the team- none of them would resist a direct hit from a 2-pounder, it meant that the Matildas had a chance of getting through your armor now. "Right, thanks for the info.">Get some better cover.>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.
>>25275775>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.Just stick to the plan--they can pen us from the front now but not at this range.
>>25275775>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.The volume of fire needs to be maximized at the start of the ambush; we can't afford to be out of position when this party starts.
>>25275775>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.Never a step backwards
>>25275775>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.
>>25275775>SqueezeboresWelp :v>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.
>>25275775>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second."HERE WE WILL STAND AND FIGHT! THERE WILL BE NO FURTHER WITHDRAW!"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-PyGOGhxig
>>25275775>>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.
>>25275775>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.Gotta let out at least one salvo. Besides, it was mentioned that it was a choke point. We got more guns pointed at them than them at us.
>>25275775>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.Hold fast, boys! Find your courage!
>>25275775>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.We have an experienced and skilled gunner.We have an experienced and skilled loader.They shall not pass.
>>25275913Salvo is for rockets. I think the term for tanks is... fusillade? Not 100% sure.
We have reached consensus.
>>25275956Actually, salvo was originally naval in origin.
>>25275990Interesting. I always hear barrage used for long range artillery guns.
>>25275995That's the one! Wait, what's fusillade for then? Am I making shit up again?
>>25275913>>25275990>>25275995>>25276000>>25276007Same shit. A bunch of guns firing at the same general area at about the same time.
"There are thousands of warriors out here. You are only one man!""I am only one Jedi.""You're insane!""No. I am Ganner. This threshold is mine. I claim it for my own. Bring on your thousands, one at a time or all in a rush. I don't give a damn. None shall pass."
>>25275995That was my second choice. It was a toss-up between those two, and volley just evokes images of the Duck Team. Not that it's a bad thing.
>>25276020Mah nigga, but you should have saved it."There are dozens of panzers out here! You are only one tank!""We are only one Porsche Tiger.""You're insane!""No. We are Leopon. This threshold is ours. We claim it for our own. Bring on your dozens, one at a time or all in a rush. We don't give a damn. None shall pass."
>>25276057...fuck. You're right :|
>>25275775>Stay where we are- Miho's coming around that bend any second.And we start singing the Battle Hymn of the Republic
>>25276014Volley refers to a group of missiles. Fusillade refers to a group of guns. Salvo refers to a group of guns or explosives. All would be correct.
>>25276102>group of missilesBy missiles I mean airborne projectiles.
>>25276097>Battle Hymn of the Republic>not the Marine Corps Hymnhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJlNw0myBG4
>>25276102Salvo sounds cooler.
OHWAITFUCKWHERE'S THE FIFTH TANK
>>25276117>Marine Corps Hymn HaHA!Oh man, good one.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpZ3jPMM5AcBattle Hymn of the Republic is much better.
>>25276128DUN DUN DUNNNN
>>25276102So let me get this straight, we can fire a volley, a salvo, a barrage, AND a fusillade, all at the same time, as long as we're shooting explosive projectiles out of a gun? That's hardcore.
>>25276102Only the Human race would devise so many different ways to say "Shoot that guy."
>>25275775>Stay right we are.This day just keeps getting better and better.LOGO ARE YOU GUNNA THROW THE FUCKING FIREFLY AT US TOO?
>>25276166>In before TOGI know I know it's a black prince--I can dream though.
>>25276171Oh lawdWe are DEAD.Can we beefcake the fuck out of the Anglerfish Dance instead?
>>25276153They were incorporated into English from different languages. Barrage is French, salvo is Italian, etc.
>>25276128>>25276171>>25276191EVERYBODY CALM THE FUCK DOWN!You remember what happened last time you guys paniced about being ambushed? We GOT ambushed because you dumb fucks overestimated Miho!
You entertain the idea of trying to hull down a bit better, but Rose is already sighted in and Miho was due around the corner. You hit the mic again. "Alright, get ready to fire on my mark!" You say , staring through the commander's telescope as you wait for Miho to round the corner. "Wait for it..." You say, low and calm. "Wait for it..."Almost on que, Miho's Panzer IV races around the corner and, over the radio you hear Momo's voice cry "FIRE!" As she fires off a round. "FIRE! FIRE!" You mentally slam your head into an imaginary desk. The round, poorly aimed as it was, sails harmlessly over Miho's tank, but then a second round- a 37mm shell from the Freshman's Lee."HOLD FIRE! Hold you fire!" You shout into the radio. Dammit! Well if Glorianna wasn't expecting an ambush they knew about it now. "That's Miho!" You sigh. You see a final parting shot miss the Panzer IV as it turns the corner and begins climbing- the Matildas are smart enough to stay back long enough to regroup- you had been hoping to hold fire long enough for them all to be in the kill zone, but that wasn't going to happen.As Miho's tank starts climbing the switch-backs, the first Glorianna tank finally makes its way into the open. They'd definately regrouped; the Black Prince was now leading the charge instead of the slightly faster Matildas, who were staggered behind it."FIRE AT WILL!""Concentrate fire on the Matildas!""Concentrate fire on the Black Prince!"
>>25276128Probably coming in from the town to cut us off
>>25276216>"Concentrate fire on the Matildas!"
>>25276153being human is awesome
>>25276216>"YOU HAD ONE FUCKING JOB, MOMO. ONE FUCKING JOB"
>>25276128Coming through the city trying to flank us, probably. Miho can guard the escape route while we see to the ambush.
>>25276216>"Concentrate fire on the Matildas!"WE can get the BP. Every other team save the STuG would be wasting time.
>>25276216"Concentrate fire on the Black Prince!"We need to discipline Momo, severely.
>>25276216FUCKDAMN SHITCUNTS, MOMO.WHAT THE FUCK.
>>25276216>"Concentrate fire on the Matildas!"Never attack the damagesponge if there's squishier targets to be had
>>25276153Wow, look at the fallacy here!Humans are the only sophont we have ever encountered. We're the only race that HAS words. Other species communicate, but it works differently than our concept of "language".And before you bust out that old "only humans kill their own kind" line, that is so much bullshit a dead man can smell it.
>>25276216"Concentrate fire on the Matildas!"
>>25276216>Momo still firesGod domn it.Damn, the BP is gonna surely be a wall for all the Matildas...it'll be hard to hit them. Focus on the Matildas, though.
>>25276216>[x]"Concentrate fire on the Matildas!"Only the StuG has a slight chance to harm the Black Prince, and Rommel isn't exactly an ace shot yet.The Black Prince is ours, let them deal with the escorts.
>>25276216>"Concentrate fire on the Black Prince!"It's the biggest threat and, if we take it out, the Matildas might be slowed down maneuvering around it, giving our fellows better shots.
>>25276216>"Concentrate fire on the Black Prince!"Track it ASAP. It would be nice if the rest of the St. GG tanks get tangled and bottle-necked, but I'm probably hoping too much.
Dammit Momo.Drop the Matildas, reduce the number of guns they can respond with.
Rolled 19>>25276216>"Concentrate fire on the Matildas!"
>>25276216Have the I-Go and 38 (t) try to take out the BP`s tracks. Everyone else target the Matildas
>>25276216>Concentrate fire on the Matildas
>>25276305I like this
>>25276216And after we told them to hold their fucking fire, too.Momo's getting smoked for this.
>"Concentrate fire on the Matildas!"The Matildas are the only targets most of our team can effectively fight. They shoot them, and we try and punch a few holes in the BP.
>>25276277Methinks you need to relax a little, you'll give yourself angina like that.The comment was tongue-in-cheek. It was not a scholarly analysis on the merits of Human language compared to ther theoretical sapients.I think you might have had one too many HFY threads lately.
>>25276305Ditto. We gotta stay cool.
>>25276216>Concentrate fire on the Matildas!The team have their priorities, we have ours. Let's see if we can't knock a hole through the Black Prince.
>>25276369HFY also makes me sick.Both anger me because they rely on piles and piles of fallacious assumptions.The "humans suck" approach makes the fallacious assumption that we're somehow magically worse than some theoretical perfect race (see: Avatar).The "HFY" approach makes the fallacious assumption that we are in any way significant in the long run.Either we are alone in the universe, in which case we are a fluke and have no great meaning, or we are not alone, in which case we aren't anything special. Either way, WE DON'T FUCKING MATTER to the universe at large.
>>25276216>"Concentrate fire on the Black Prince!"My. Fucking. God.
>>25276216Poke holes in the Matildas.
>>25276411Nigga, calm the fuck down.There is no need to be so upset.Chill out and enjoy cute girls doing tank things.
>>25276358>Terminal LanceMah nigga.
>>25276216>"Concentrate fire on the Matildas!"PRIORITIES FOR VICTORY:1. KILL ENEMY TANKS2. DAMAGE ENEMY TANKS3. STAY ALIVEi mean, for fucks sake you goddamned pubbies, the less of them there are (because we knocked them out), the fewer our shitty team has to deal with later.
>>25276216>"Concentrate fire on the Black Prince!"We need that fucking thing dead.
Everyone, I've got it! The perfect way to defeat the enemy!http://youtu.be/SX7m4fqTLKU
>>25276411The best kind of HFY is not "Humans strong aliens weak"The best kind of HFY is not "Aliens strong humans weak"The best kind of HFY is simply stating facts.We went from primitive steam power to walking on the moon in the span of 100 years. That is less than the age of my great grandmother. We did said moonwalking with less computing power than you have in your nokia dumbphone - Slide rules, tables, brainpower, and persistence.
>>25276499>Shots it will take for BlackJack to wreck a Matilda: 1>Shots it will take for BlackJack to wreck a Black Prince: 1Everyone else should shoot at the Matildas though.
>>25276533But there is no benchmark. 100 years could be a very, very long time for that level of development.
>>25276582In our own sense, it was a quick time. We have no other means of looking at it excluding our own-- therefore they don't apply until there is another means of looking at it.
>>25276582The time it took to invent steel then? From the discovery of iron
>>25276411Wow, nihilist much?Enjoy cute girls doing tank things, damn it. We're not here to get preached on. I already get that every fucking day, and I'm not talking about religion.
>>25276606"Yeah humans are great! Just compare them to how slow it took these humans to invent steel!"Not seeing it.
>>25276533And now, instead of building space colonies, we spend our resources on stupid shit.We need to fix that, so I can live in an O'Neil Cylinder.NOW IS THE TIME FOR MANKIND TO STAND UP FOR THE FUTURE!
wait, why are guys participatingare they homo
>>25276216"EVERYONE, UNPIMP THOSE MATILDAS! WEAPONS FREE, FIRE AT THEIR LOWER GLACIS PLATES. VOLLEYBALL TEAM, FIND ME THAT FIFTH FUCKING TANK!"
>>25276627No, as in the comparison between the invention of steel, and the 100 years between steam age and walking on the moon
>>25276641Worse, they're American
>>25276655That hurts. We Amerifats don't have anything wrong with us. Well... Not much, anyway.
>>25276641Read the previous threads mate.And no, they are all quite straight. One of them is currently dating Saori..We're still trying to decide who our MC will be with.(In the back of our minds, we all know that our MC will end up with one of the girls. Just who would be the best girl for our character, eh?...)
"Alright, Fire on my target!" You yell into the comms. "Concentrate on taking down the Matildas." You feel the turret swing slightly as Rose sights in. "Fire!" Black Jack shakes and all along the ridge you hear the volley of fire sound. Rose's round goes low, digging into the road beneith a Matilda. "Rose correct up two degrees."The British line comes to a halt, their guns aim and they return fire. You hear round impact all around Oorai's tanks- misses all around, but you hear a squeel of panic from the the Freshmen's Lee. "Lee, what's your status?" You hear nothing. "Lee?" You move to the periscope and turn just in time to see the Freshmen bugging out of their completely untouched tank."Dammit." Yeah, this was definately not going according to plan.Miho's voice cuts through the chatter and sporadic cannonfire. "Pull back! Everyone pull back to the city!" She orders calmly. "Black Jack, StuG, get to your next position!"
>>25276684It's obvious that the best choice is to claim Kay as isorla.
>>25276684There's only one girl right now that we can give a good and proper hatefuck
>>25276641Because people want to self insert bang their waifus.

Follow me on twitter for updates and such.https://twitter.com/BlackJackGuPQ
>>25276699I do not have an appropriate X-COM Screenshot for this.>Rookie Rabbit has panicked!
>>25276766I'd be willing ti listen if it was another Oorai girl, but this has some disloyality to it.
>>25276791>disloyalityHow is it disloyal to claim her as isorla? We defeat Saunders, and we take her as our own. No disloyalty, just the spoils of war.
>>25276816Girl Und Panzer: Rance edition?
>>25276816Aye, but remember, Sensha-do isn't war!Too bad, because there would be lots of tasty spoils to acquire...
>>25276816I don't think that's possible in this and frankly all this talk about going after a girl from another school is getting rather annoying ,not to mention disrespectful to the girls at Oorai, both numerous and mostly nice.
>>25276840Sadly, as much as women are attracted to bad men, many men don't want a "nice girl" either...
>>25276866I say nice as in likeable. Or do you rather date a bitch like Anzu?guys avoiding nice girls are being stupid and they don't realize the error of their ways until a ways in life. I mean sure guys go for the naughty girls, but in the end they often marry the nice ones.
>>25276840They're not real people y'know. Saying it's disrespectful is pretty...Creepy.
>>25276927and like going apeshit over a paintjob is better?
>>25276684>Just who would be the best girl for our character, eh?Pic related.
>>25276908Anzu is crazy, she is utterly lacking sense and self control. I was thinking more of girls like Miho's sistyer, her second-in-command, Nonna and/or Katyusha, who, despite their flaws, are likeable in their own way. (And less of a shy doormat like Miho! Ugh!)
Someone archive this thread
>>25276989My vote's for Nonna.
>>25277013Too bad for you she's Katyushasexual.
>>25276989so girls on other ships. What are the oorai girls chopped liver? Or are you chronically going after the grass on the other side of the fence?
>>25277013And a Russian...or at least a Japanese girl posing as a Russian...still, too Commie for good ol' grandpa.
>>25277013I want Darjeeling.She's a classy gal. Also da lewdest.
>>25277064Russiaboo.Also a bit too creepy. Even if Uesaka Sumire can speak Russian to me all day everyday and I'd probably have a raging erection.
>>25277056If we stick to Ooarai:From the main cast, Mako or Hana. Miho is a doormat, Saori is a stupid airhead, and Yukari is crazy.From the other teams:- The freshmen are too young, so nope!- Anzu/Momo/Yuzu, err... NOPE!- The 3 girls riding the B1, see above.- On the other hand, History club, Automotive club and Volleyball club girls don't get much screentime and are stereotyped, but with a lil' more character development, all might be nice.
>>25277273>Yukari is crazyShe just likes tanks dude.
>>25277289No, she's obsessed with tanks to the point it hampers her in her social development, and lacking self-control. This is more than enough to label her as "crazy", although you can tone it down to "loony" if you prefer.
>>25277316Welcome to the real word. Lots of people are like this.
>>25277273Yukari is the GOOD sort of crazy, she's our kinda girl.Miho may be friend material, but I'm all for friendzoning her, she's a definite doormat that doesn't fit us.There's a few other possibilities, but they would require a fair amount of development that seems doubtful based on how the story has gone thus far.However, Anzu and company are right out, and not just because I hate Anzu with the force of a thousand suns. I just don't seem them as anyone our character would like, and that's even giving them the benefit of the doubt.
>>25277323like 4chan, and especially some of /tg/!>>25277273>Yukari is crazyWell that just about discredits you but I'll humor you can finish my counter.The other teams aren't much better in terms of being collections of stereotypes, the only reason why they might seem better is "Grass is greener on the other side of the fence" effect.
>>25277316>This is more than enough to label her as "crazy"It's really not.
>>25277340I agrree that amongst the whole cast, she's the most fitting for the quest's MC.>>25277344That, or simply preferring some sterotypes over others... Or the fact that the other team leaders at least get a hint of character development, where the others do not.
this sounds like more lets make a harem anime out of a bunch of class S 'dyke's, only in a military setting, can't you men find something to stick your dick in that isn't the only (terribly bland) safe haven for people tired of hetero pairings being predominant everywhere?
>>25276057>We are one Super Pershing.
>>25277718You are new to /tg/, eh? If you aren't, you should know better than to say what you did.I'm afraid you'll have to find your MC yuri fetish in another quest - not that it's terribly difficult.
>>25277718GuP wasn't made with Yuri in mind, in fact I heard the director was hell bent on adverting that.
>>25277822I predate this quest bullshit by a large margine, you may as well dump a truck load of spess murrines into this setting for all the focus youre keeping on the title and nature of the show.>>fetishget fucked, I could care less about getting some stupid 'yuri' fix, I'm just tired of the crowd that does nothing but fight over which girl would be best to dip their cock in, like thats all they exist for. It's pretty much synonymous with rape VNs and the use of the term heroine to designate the various girls the mc gets to rape. and this isn't some feminist bullshit, this is really how the intro videos to every one of these things is structured.
>>252778643/10 Mr Ruseman, you almost got me
>>25277834[citation required]not that I give a shit, but a little bird telling you the director hates lesbians isn't going to be taken at face value.
>>25277904>a little bird telling you the director hates lesbiansHating lesbians isn't the same as wanting to avoid overt girl-on-girl sexual overtones.
>>25277864Uh oh, /tg/ doesn't take well to hearing criticism of their self insert fanfiction.
>>25277864>I'm just tired of ...I perfectly understand. However, behaving like pic related won't help you. Stop reading/watching such material, just ignore it. Shitposting a thread where other people have fun on the internet won't give you either weight, credence or support. Quite the contrary, in fact!
>>25277919"Critiscism" imply pointing at point(s) percieved as bad, and proposing solution(s) to fix said point(s)."Stop doing this, this is shit!" isn't critiscism.
>>25277919well considering how much fanfiction i read and how much lols i got on /tg/ threads for it (albeit not SI bullshit) they can manith the fuck up.>>25277917>>overtNothing except lesbian porn has overt lesbian tones. you apparently don't understand how japan works so let me enlighten you. Yuri is a genre for men in japan (or occasionally, the closeted lesbians) It appeals to the watcher by invoking a romantic relationship with the intention that it is transient and exists only untill the girl grows up and realizes she wants the dick. This sells like dope to straight males because it allows for even more cute or sexy or insert fetish here females to be present, while still maintaining the 'purity' of the girls. This is a really big deal, just look at the way most japanese anime fans sperg out if an idol or seiyuu dares get into some kind of relationship. No one wants overt lesbian overtones in their story because real lesbians are 'disgusting' or 'just haven't grown up yet and need the dick' It's unlikely I would believe the director hates lesbians or loves them no matter what you said without a source, but with this you should have at least a little perception as to the way lesbians tend to be portrayed.As an easy example Candy Boy is a more down to earth lesbian focused story. The two girls within want to be together forever.Marimite or strawberry panick is class S trash, the characters in this story have a transient relationship based on kohai/sempai and are implied to later grow out of it.
>>25278035that's pretty outright compared to some of the modern SoL which happens to lack men for the most part.but with most most or all girl shows these days, directors are fond of putting in some subtle subext to get those fans, similar to how action shounen writers do things for yaoi fangirls
>>25277923>Stop reading/watching such material, just ignore it.>Shitposting a thread where other people have fun on the internet won't give you either weight, credence or support. Quite the contrary, in fact!You get a gold star and a cookie, because I couldn't have said it any better. I wish more would keep this in mind.
>>25278035A fair number of the girls in GuP have/had/want boyfriends though.
>>25278035>you apparently don't understand how japan works so let me enlighten you. Yuri is a genre for men in japan (or occasionally, the closeted lesbians) It appeals to the watcher by invoking a romantic relationship with the intention that it is transient and exists only untill the girl grows up and realizes she wants the dick.>Yuri is a genre for guys>A genre about a specific type of relationship blooming between teenage girls only during a fairly short period of time>for guys onlyExactly, and pony novels are written for pedophiles who want to fantasizes about underaged girls taking the horse-D.
>>25278615Better watch out, they are going to call those pony novels class S trash also!Well, since they read lots of fanfiction and "understand" how Japan works, of course they know everything.
>MFW people can's read Girls and Panzers as a shoujo sports series anymore.Thought they did fold the usual insane training into the fact that they're shooting at each other with tanks.
>>25277864Actually, I think we were fighting over which tank to stick our cannon in, not which girl to stick our cock in.That said, as someone who followed -all- the Strike Witches Quests and spinoffs, GuPQ, Monster Girl Quest, MGNQ, among others, yes, I am kinda tired of arguing over who to romance before eventually deciding on harem end.
>>25278679Another fun thing is that the guy completely ignores that messages about the proper choice of adult sexual partern can also be addressed to women. Not all of fiction is written to shore up the delicate and fragile heterosexual identity of men.
>>25278694Of course, once we decide on harem route, then we have to spend four threads arguing about -which- harem route...Sigh. I'm starting to sound like /v/, clearly it's time to stop posting.
>>25278744>which harem routeCorrect me if I am wrong, but doesn't "harem route" imply the MC gets all and every girl at once, without exception?
>>25278686Those are some mean-looking bitches.
>>25278694>Actually, I think we were fighting over which tank to stick our cannon in, not which girl to stick our cock in.>Implying that all tank turrets were created equally spaciousCommunist.
>>25278756You know what I mean. If it's not one thing, it's another.
>>25278761Yeah, classic shoujo was pretty gangsta.
>>25275539NEIN NEIN NEIN NEIN NEIN NEIN
>>25278785>You will never be leader of your girl's volleyball team>You will not become a fashionable judo girl
>>25277316>No, she's obsessed with tanks to the point it hampers her in her social development,Other way around. Her lack of social development caused her to go full tankphile.Remember, this is the only character in the series without a terrestrial home, she's spent most of her life at a high school in the middle of the ocean. And what's more she spent most of that time looking like a yakuza, so once she did get into social situations people avoided her.Granted the tanks didn't help, but if she was raised in an environment that allowed her to interact with people her own age she would never have turned to tanks as hard as she did, and they would have remained a healthy hobby.>tl;dr: Yukari is a Voidborn.>>25277718>the only (terribly bland) safe haven for people tired of hetero pairings being predominant everywhere?You've never been to a fanfiction site have you?
