The situation is currently fluid. Shiho Nishizumi, the leader of Kuromuromine Highschool and Miho's mother, is not glaring at you. Her face is a picture of cold, dispationate ruthlessness. But, as close as the fight might've been, a mostly-male foreigner crew had just come to her country and beaten one of her star commanders. For a senshado team like hers to lose like that? It had to hurt her pride a bit.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and if Shiho is a blank slate, at least you can read Maho. Or at least you think you can- her expression is polite. This is actually a bit surprising- Erika was her friend and second-in-command. You'd expect her to be anything but congratulatory.And this is throwing a wrench into your plans- its hard to be passive aggressive when someone isn't being aggressive. You actually find yourself struggling to come up with a response.>"Uh, thank you.">Stay polite. Stay professional.>"Your sister helped me prepare.">Other.

>>33411100People! Anzio OVA has been Fansubbed!: http://anilinkz.com/girls-und-panzer-kore-ga-hontou-no-anzio-sen-desu-ovaStart tanking notes. There will be a test at the end. After watching the GuP Anzio OVA… Safety *and suspension of disbelief* were tested to the limit there. Like: Anchovy is graceful and polite while wanting to win, How-to-train-as-a-loader-from-your-own-home, spirit and innovation of underdog Anzio team.Dislike: total disregard for manga, broke school has 1-1 scale reconstructed Renaissance/Italian architecture, StuG III-Semovente 75/25 ‘tank-kata’/gun barrel fencing, Italy=food loving party people stereotype found everywhere.WTF: tankette gets thrown several feet, rolls multiple times, flag doesn’t pop, crew just gets out, pushes it over, and drives off with no injuries, just a bit of dirt. Tankette went to same school as volleyball team for driving.so, while we wait, what are your thoughts on the OVA anon?
>>33411209>broke school has 1-1 scale reconstructed Renaissance/Italian architectureI figure they just changed "The entire school is broke" to "The senshado team is broke because they spend all of their money on other things, like food.
waiting for 1080p, not watching it until then.
>>33411260senshado is, supposedly, declining in interest, so Anzio putting them at the bottom of the budget, I.E. after all funding has been spent, is a logical conclusion. >>33411263people watched TV that wasn't in HD, heck, it didn't even have color sometimes, but to each their own./s
>>33411100>>"Uh, thank you."C'mon, we're at least a little shook up. so long as we don't SPAGHETTI
>>33411391That does make sense. ignore my earlier vote, changing to:>"Uh, thank you."
>>33411100>Stay polite. Stay professional.>"Uh, thank you."
>>33411100>"Uh, thank you."Fuck! Our glorious plan of passive-aggressive douchenoodlry has failed! Abort to back-up noodles!
>>33411209I can get over StuG gun kata, i don't watch GuP for realism anyway.'Immortal' tankettes is a bit weird, true. Feels a bit inconsistent. Not to mention that shooting while reserving. On Renaissance/Italian structure and all of those food stall.. it can be handwaved IF it aimed for tourist that visiting Anzio for Italian feels.overall 8/10 if you willing to stretch your suspension of disbelief.
>>33411473For cute girls doing cute things...I will hang my disbelief by the neck until dead.
>>33411473point made on gun kata and Anzio being a tourist trap ship is a nice bit of world building. Plus, if you like Girls und Panzer, your SOD checked out at the door.

For me, Yukari comes too early or its not really tourist season.
>>33411576One sec... let me throw something together...
>>33411623To each his own. Half of what a freind recommends to me I find unwatchable.

>>33412470Awesome. Now you can link that as threadly reminders.
You can handle this. Stay polite and magnanimous.You nod politely. "Thank you, Commander." You say, keeping your chin up and your eyes on Maho. "It was an honor to take place in something as historical as the first battle between the Tiger II and the Pershing." You give her a smile. "If I'm able to continue doing my job it won't be the last."You extend your hand out in front of you and Maho shakes it professionally. After a few moments she with draws her hand. "Your crew and your tank will certainly need to be planned for." She says.>Offer to shake Shiho's hand.>Where's Miho?>Other.
>>33412627>Where's Miho?GF must be located, make sure she's mentally stable.
>>33412627>>Offer to shake Shiho's hand.Offer to shake it, if she refuses, she's the lesser man (Well, woman) for it.

>>33412627>Offer to shake Shiho's hand.
>>33412627>>Offer to shake Shiho's hand.DIPLOMACY HOOOO!
>>33412627>Offer to shake Shiho's handFor one, it would be rather unseemly to ignore her since she's the head of the school. Besides that.... testing the waters.
Really, Japan? Y you hog all good thing...(http://)worldoftanks.asia/ja/news/pc-browser/21/announce-gupcollaboration-mook/Partial translation:(http://)forum.worldoftanks.asia/index.php?/topic/26787-wot-anime-network/page__st__22740__pid__1030651#entry1030651
Your business with Maho completed, you turn to her mother. You look Shiho in the eye and extend your hand towards her. You're expecting her to step away, or turn her back on you- maybe even insult you. Amazingly though, she takes your hand and shakes. But amazement soon turns to horror- her hands are like... Tankasaurus. As she shakes she slowly begins to squeeze- first for a firm handshake, but soon transitioning to uncomfortably tight, then to painful- you're pretty sure you can feel the bones in your hand groaning as they threaten to snap.It's a trap- and you felt right into it.>Fight back.>Withdraw.>Other.
>>33414010>>Fight back.One can play same game, too.
>>33414010>Other.Stand your ground. Don't fight back. Show no weakness.No response will drive her nuts.

>>33414010>Other.No retaliation. Give no indication that it's affecting us whatsoever.
>>33414066Os so very much this.
>>33414066>>33414097similar idea of 'don't show reaction' gets my vote.
>>33414066Show no weakness!
>>33414066Now that's Iron Warrior "Iron without, Iron within shit right there. Seconding.
>>33414066>>33414155This this this!
>>33414010>Fight back.>Otherwhisper this to her "No matter how mad you get. I will still marry Miho." Shit eating grin optional
>>33414092I don't know where do you get better WG thingy.All i care is we got some sort of manual book for WoT with GuP and it is on Japanese.And i supposedly comes with code for tetrach or B2.
>>33414251Ok, that last part, we'll save for later, probably right after this. its too good not to use.>>33414293WG=Wargaming, the company behind World of Tanks.
>>33414350....no, i get WG=Wargaming.What i don't get is what do you mean with ASIA/SEA didn't need better WG.
>>33414396He means that the SEA server needs better players more than they need better WG service, or something like that.
>>33414396I meant that the average player needs to learn how to play the game half way decent, rather than a damm lemming. My opinion is that there are plenty of resources, both dev and community side, on how to be good at WoT for people to use, and they don't use them. If you see the issue of SEA players sucking being the responsibility of Wargaming to solve, that's your opinion, and that's ok.
>>33414488much more succinctly put, but yeah.
>>33414251No no no, we save that spoilered part to just before the final match.
>>33414488>>33414515Hmm, dunno. Sure the amount of mouth breather on game, that already know the team is outgunned by several top tier HTs AND STILL LEMMING TO ONE SIDE depressingly common. And sure, WG and community already have many resource for that.But well, maybe, maybe some of those mouthbreather is manic otaku and maybe can learn one or two thing from that book? And maybe this mouthbreather finally can be decent after reading book? who know. Besides, it aimed to Japan consumer so well, maybe it could work.All i know i want this book also out in English. By then i'll throw the money to WG.-
>>33414010>>Fight back.Only option. We'll lose, but retreat undoes everything we've tried to accomplish here.
>>33414547gotcha. I will make a note of that.>>33414633You raise some good points. I'll give it to you, we do need less donkeys and more thinkers on WoT. Translating it would go a ways to help that. Plus, it has Everyone's favorite Fluffy! Nobody Hates Fluffy Yukari!
>>33414633It's been fan-translated, I'm almost positive, if you're talking about the manga I think you are.
>>33414515Can I get a link to all the episode docs?
>>33414010These: >>33414097, >>33414066>>33414772I think this is something new, an entirely new manual for World of Tanks, based on the forum post.
>>33414795Look for the pastebin.com link further up in the thread, as for the gup manga: http://ftr.wot-news.com/2013/09/06/gup-wot-manga-in-english/

>>33414854What, no T-54s, SU-100s, no IS-3s, no ISU-122s, ISU-152s? oh, that sexy, sexy BL-10
>>33414756Thanks. I mean it just shows potential for growth not only in Russels relationship with Miho, but with himself. I mean how much growth is it to go from spaghetting over girls to being confident enough to saying that to an Iron Lady like Shiho. I do have to say I would love to see a flashback thing to what Shiho looked like at Maho's age. Because damn...
>>33414976I mean if BJ feels like it, we might see T-54 Proto alongside those SU/ISU and IS tanks.Anyone know if IS-3 already completed before end of war?
>>33414981Why have a one-dimensional villian when you can have a three-dimensional character that you can understand how they be, and you feel sympathy for them, no matter how much it hurts you?>>33415016Wikipedia says IS-3 was developed in late '44, only combat action was in Manchuria. Totally legal.
>>33414756This is my reaction to your post.http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1514140?pool_id=7425 That 4-koma is semi-offical
>>33415183http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1514155?pool_id=7425 I like this one more, mostly because I love the History girls.

>>33415183Talking about that manga...We should pay some visit to ol' Jungorou sometimes.

>>33415339The casualest of casual.
Jeez... Her grasp is like a vice grip- slowly ratcheting closed on your hand.You start to wince- No! That's what she wants- she wants to see your weakness. Give her nothing! NOTHING! You continue shaking her hand- you just have to wait her out. Eventually she's going to have to give up- it'll look weird if she just keeps shaking.You bear it- the pain, the uncomfortable creaking in your hands. The dispationate look in Shiho's eyes. You just need to last a few more seconds, but it seems like the longer you hold on the more determined she becomes to break you.>OH GOD JUST LET GO DEVIL WOMAN.>For Miho!>Go on the offensive!>Other.

You're at the point of physical, emotional and psychological collapse- the pain has begun shooting up to your shoulder and you feel muscles spasming in your lower arm. It can't take much more of this- You want to cry and scream but then, you look past Shiho, through the crowd and you see Miho.A wave of calm washes over you- the pain is still there, but it almost feels second-hand, almost like an echo. You look back into Shiho's eyes and you do the most curious thing: You calmly smile at her. It's a real smile, too- you just feel calm and cool and in control and you just want to smile.So you do, and thats when Shiho blinks. A look of momentary confusion crosses her face before disappearing again. And then she lets go and all the blood begins rushing back into your poor, mangled hand. "Commander." She says, before withdrawing along with Maho.>Medical. Attention.>Sit down, continue eating.>Miho.>Other.
>>33416260Miho first then medical attention
>>33416260>>Miho.She can kiss it better
>>33416260>>Miho.But casually, in case they're still watching. We have won a battle, gentlemen, but we have not yet won the war.

>>33416260>Miho.>Other.check to see if we can still move our handthen>Sit down, continue eating.

>>33416260>Sit down, continue eating.Like I give a fuck
Shiho and Maho have disappeared by the time Miho pushes her way through the crowd that had gathered for what they'd evidently hoped would be a great showdown between Oorai's new hero and the leaders of Black Forest Peak. Your hand is throbbing with pain as Miho rushes up to you. "I think that might've been a mistake..." You mutter, sitting down again. You ball your hand into a fist, testing its mobility. "Yeah..." You wince. "Definately a mistake.""I'm sorry..." Miho says. "What happened? What did Maho say to you?">"She congratulated me. Sincerely.">Nevermind that- your hand!>Other.
>>33417252>"She congratulated me. Sincerely. and your mother made an impression on my hand."deadpan snark time.
>>33417252>"She congratulated me. Sincerely."

>>33417252>>"She congratulated me. Sincerely.""Your sister is nice person"then>Nevermind that- your hand!"...it can't be that worse, right? Right?"
>>33417276This is pretty good.Also I just gotta say I can't believe I waited an hour for that post, Christ. Blackjack always was slow, but these things use to have actual substance.
>>33417276This. I like this. This is good.
>>33417348true, the posts lately have been 1/2-1/3 less than BJ's past output. I should know, I've edited it all. unless you can solve whatever the cause is, it is what it is.
>>33417399I'm always a bit shit when I'm questing after work.
>>33417399Well if the cause is laziness and indifference I'm doing my part to call BJ out on it, I like his quest and I don't want to go back to just reading the archives, but following a thread is always suffering.
>>33417429Ahhh. Real life, as much as we would like it to be otherwise, comes before internets.>>33417441I do understand that BJ's pace is very abnormal compared to some other QM's, but please see >>33417429. It's not for lack of care or effort.
>>33417480I know, and I don't mean to be rude. I just feel nothing will change if I don't voice my complaints once in a while.
>>33417252BJ? you awake buddy?
You wince, flexing your hand back and forth as you stare at it. "Well, Miho congratulated me on our victory..." You say as you look over at Patrick. "Also: Thanks for not doing anything to ruin that." You say, nodding your head at him in thanks."I'll take that as an 'I owe you one.'" He says, as he resumes his struggle with the noodles. "W-want me to get you a fork?" Miho says, staring at him. He shakes his head and continues and she turns back to you. "What else did she say?" She askes you."Said she'd have to plan for me- I think that's praise, right?" You say hopefully- You're hoping that it didn't mean you were going to be killed in your sleep by Nishizumi Ninja Assassins.Miho nods, looking more optimistic. "But what about your hand?" Its already turning red and swelling a bit. You don't think anything broken."Your mother made an impression on it." You mutter. "Right down to the bone, I think..." She takes your wounded hand and feels around a bit- you wince at almost every touch. "Alright... Alright! Hey, ow... No, I'm fine!" You say pulling your hand back away."You should get that looked at..." She says worried. "I didn't feel anything but...">"I'll be fine...">"Yeah, let's do that...">"So where'd you go?"
>>33418118>"Yeah, let's do that...">"So where'd you go?"just to be on the safe side.
>>33418118>"Yeah, let's do that...">"So where'd you go?"
>>33418118>>"Yeah, let's do that..."Lets not risk our good hand.
>>33418135>>33418139This.Also>>33418118>Miho congratulated me on our victory*Maho
>>33418118>>"Yeah, let's do that...">>"So where'd you go?"Let's not risk our fapping hand, although a stranger might be fun...
>>33418181already edited it.
>>33418118>>"Yeah, let's do that...">>"So where'd you go?"porque no los dos?
"Yeah... I think might be a good idea..." You say, as you shake your hand a bit- a mistake that causes it to throb. You get up and start walking with her- she puts an arm under your arm to support you. Not that she needs to- you've got no problem walking."We'll find Yuuzu... She's taken first aid classes!" Miho says, cheerfully. "She'll fix you up just fine!" You groan- Yuuzu is going to mean Anzu and Momo. "Are you okay, Russells?" Miho says."Fine... Just fine..." You say, "So, where'd you go?" You ask- Miho had been surprisingly absent after you'd gone to find people earlier."Actually- I was watching for the results of the Anzio-Maginot match..." Maginot definately sounds French, but Anzio? You aren't that familiar with the various schools and who the represent...>"Who won?">"Who's Anzio?">Other.
>>33418599>>"Who won?"Trivia priority depends on this answer
>>33418599>"Who won?">"Who's Anzio?"porque no los dos?
>>33418599>>"Who won?">>"Who's Anzio?"see no reason to not ask both.
>>33418599>>"Who's Anzio?"funnier this way,
>>33418599>>"Who won?">>"Who's Anzio?">>Other."Who's Anzio? Sounds like some kind of cheese or something.'
>>33418599>"Who won?">"Who's Anzio?"
>>33418599>"Who won?"Well, Anzio breaks out the full buffet after matches, so I'd say everyone won.
Rolled 1Rolling for Flag Tank.1- Panzer IV2- Panzer 38(t)3- StuG III4- A33 Excelsior5- M3 Lee6- M26E1 Pershing7- Char B1bis
>>33419028Nah nah nah. The Pershing should be the flag, since nothing Anzio has pen it, in canon anyways.
>>33419058Really?A lucky shot by Semovente or P40 on rear might capable to render it inoperable. Correct me if i am wrong on this.
>>33419084tracking, yes, but anything with a cannon can kill by tracking. Armor penetration however, give me a few mins on wiki.
>>33419058Which canon flag tank are we going for this anyway? StuG or 38(t)?Also>implying Anzio will stick to canon line-up
>>33419125>implying Italian have anything that able to penetrate BlackJackWell, frontally at least. I am still not sure if Semovente or P40 can wreck BJ from rear, on engine deck.
"Oh?" You say, walking along with her. "Who won?" You ask- the French actually had some pretty good tanks early-on in the war. Legends like the Char B1, the Somua S35 actually out-performed the German tanks of that time handily. A school using French tanks of WWII could be difficult to beat."Anzio, actually." Miho says, sounding surprised. "I was surprised- One of Anchovy's plans actually managed to work for once...""Wait... Who does Anzio represent?" You ask- the name sounds familiar but your mind is still trying to figure out who they'd be- New Zealands? No, that's ANZAC. Czechoslovakia? That doesn't make any sense either.Wait. Wait! "Italy." Miho says at almost exactly the moment your brain actually switches back on. "Supposedly, though, they've kept a secret weapon in reserve for us..."
>>33419200NEXT, IN PASTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>33419125I've been brainstorming what Anzio might bring this whole time. Still think BlackJack's our best bet.>>33419155>>33419084yeah, nothing netwise on penetration capabilities for the Semovente or P40's gun. So lets default to the safe assumption of 'front is safe, sides possibly, don't even give them the rear'.
NEXT TIME ON GIRLS UND PANZER QUEST...>Her name is Anchovy?!>The Italians had tanks?>They actually won?Girls und Panzer Quest will return Wednesday at 4-5PM PST!Follow me on Twitter for schedule updates and to find out when the thread goes live!https://twitter.com/BlackJackGuPQ
>>33419232Bye BJ! I'm off to do laundry.
>>33419218Your Google-fu is waning, old man...http://ibiblio.org/hyperwar/USA/ref/TM/PDFs/TM9-1985-6-Italy.pdfWith the info contained within this ancestral scroll, we should be able to get a decent idea of the penetration power of the Semovente.
There's the Semovente 75/46 or the one with the 105 to consider, if we speculate beyond canon.And I guess this means they are allowed to field 15 tanks? Since the match with Saunders had 15 with them for this quest.And now I just realized that the Maginot vs. Anzio match might've been a 15 vs. 15 tank battle.
