You test the seats as the halftrack glides down the street. The ride was surprisingly smooth, and the seats were a comfortable brown leather. Or faux leather- either way it was a welcome change from the hard metal bench you'd occupied before Anchovy had arrived.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and you've been invited back to Anzio's HQ by their Commander, the Napoleonic Anchovy- a short girl with delicated girled pigtails and a penchent for leather boots and bravado.Unfortunately, Yukari hadn't made it back to you and Miho with any kind of relief for the massive volume of Italian food you'd both consumed with the help of Anchovy's lieutinant, Pepperoni. Who's sitting across from you along with Anchovy and another girl- a blond.You lean back- partially to appear more at ease and casual and partially to relax the pressure on your still-engorged stomach. Luckily you aren't one for being carsick.>"Anchovy, Pepperoni- Where's Olive and Mushroom?">Congratulate Anchovy on her victory over Maginot.>Ask about the food.>Other.

>>34262424>Congratulate Anchovy on her victory over Maginot.>"Anchovy, Pepperoni- Where's Olive and Mushroom?"Congratulating pseudo-Italians for their victory over pseudo-French? Doesn't seem right but should do it anyway.
>>34262424>>"Anchovy, Pepperoni- Where's Olive and Mushroom?">>Other. First Gloriana and teas and now you guys and Italian food. Please don't tell me you were schnitzel at Black Forest Miho.

>>34262886Our over-fooding has made us crazy.
>>34262886>>34262937Schnitzil is actually a thing. We missed the chance to ask if Erika's nickname was Bratwurst.
>>34262929>外国人スマッシュ>Gaikoku hito sumasshu
>>34263036It basically German Katsu.....and Katsu is homophone with Victory on Japan, no?...God, so thats where Miho hax come from.
>>34262937Not the Schnizel itself, but suggesting that Black Forest Peak would have called Miho "Schnitzel".
>>34263036This >>34263146 was supposed to respond to you, but I am too stupid to aim my reply.
>>34263146Here's the real question: Who was Sauerbraten?
>>34263235Erika.Would they have (dared) to refer to Shiho as Ms. Cake?
>>34262424Wait, has Jingles actually shown up?
>>34263560bj says no
>>34264028So he's not kill?
>>34264047I used an Ouija board.
You smile a, looking over at Miho before turning your gaze back to Pepperoni and Anchovy. "So- Pepperoni? Anchovy? So where's Olive?" You grin and laugh and look back at Miho who isn't laughing. "Mushroom? Salami?"At this point the driver turns around. "Someone ask for me?" "Oh." You say. "Um... Nothing- just talking about Pizza toppings..." Looking back and Anchovy and Pepperoni, they don't seem as entertained by the joke or who real it turned out. "Sorry- didn't actually... uh... I'm gonna be quiet now."Anchovy smiles politely. "It's fine- We take our names from our love of good food." >Compliment them on their food.>Ask them about the fight with Maginot.>Let Miho do the talking.>Other.
>>34264168>Other. Pull off your best mafioso impression.>Ask them about the fight with Maginot.
>>34264168>Compliment them on their food.And glorious it was, hence our devouring.

>>34262424... wait, that tweet was serious? Where the hell did this glorious image come from and who made it?
>>34264872I don't understand, what is it referencing?
>>34264914Jingles maybe?That WoT streamer persona?
>>34264914>not knowing The Mighty Jingles.google fast before the rabid fans find the scent anon,>>34264933yep, that's him. and BlackJack is a BIG fan of his.
>>34264914http://www.youtube.com/user/BohemianEagleYoutube guy. Plays a lot of WoT. Goes by "The Mighty Jingles"

>>34264168>>34265043Ask what spaghetti is doing right now.
>>34265043Yes. Some of their real names are known/speculated, but I can't recall them right now.
>>34264981Oh! I recognize the voice. Someone had posted a link to where he brought up being a GuP fan. Then a lot of his fan base flung shit because clearly Chinese cartoons are shit.
>>34265061TOG is love.TOG is life.
>>34265043In the Anzio OVA Momo calls Anchovy Anzai. And Carpacchio's real name is Hina.
>>34265074Well, Anchoy real name is Chiyomi Anzai.Its on TV-Trp
>>34265074ah. thanks for answering /k/. kinda wonder now if the German food nicknames discussed earlier will be brought up.>>34265135>>34265167well there's two.>>34265061>>34265123PRAISE THE TOG!
>>34265167That's one, yes. Caesar's is also mentioned in the Anzio OVA, but, again, I can't recall it. I *think* Erwin's is also known as well.
>>34265198If we talk about Black Forest, at most they'll use german name.Afterall, you don't see Hamburger, Hotdogs and Bagels on Saunders team, right?Maybe Ooarai will use real-life war commander as soul name now.>>34265237http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/GirlsUndPanzerOaraiAcademyCaesar: Takako SuzukiErwin: Riko MatsumotoSaemonza: Kiyomi SugiyamaOryou: Takeko Nogami.
>>34265266>http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/GirlsUndPanzerOaraiAcademyOh god, TVTropes. Well. It was fun knowing you guys, this'll be the last post I make in this thread.
You pat your belly. "I can see why you'd take a lot of pride in your food..." The twelve pounds of pasta you feel like you've packed away is testiment to that.Miho nods politely. "Pepperoni is an excellent cook! I don't think I've ever eaten that much in my life!" Thank you Miho- rescuing you from making an ass of yourself since forever. Pepperoni beams proudly as Anchovy pays her own compliments. "She's a true artist. Bold and creative. She's a true paragon of our school's strengths!">"Creativity? Is that how you beat Maginot?">"What does food have to do with tanks?">Wait, where's Yukari?>Other.
>>34265570>"Creativity? Is that how you beat Maginot?">"What does food have to do with tanks?"bait talk is bait.
>>34265570>"What does food have to do with tanks?"We must not speak of The Fluffy. They would catch her, and do horrible things to her.Italian things.
>>34265570>seriously, where is spaghetti and what is she doing.
>>34265635in with this
>>34265570 BlackJack is dead, Long Live The BlackJack
Miho nods and gives you a short explanation. "Anzio's central theme has always been food- its what they're famous for!" You'd sort of guessed that from the huge number of food stalls and restaurants you've seen. "Even if their senshado team isn't always the most successful, their greatest pride will be their cooking!"Anzio nods slowly. "Our food is our pride, but you underestimate our team this year, Miss Nishizumi." She says carefully. "Our team will take after our food preparation and this year we will finally show the world what we're capable of!" She balls her hands into a fist, looking fiercely into the distance as the halftrack rumbles along."Wait..." You say, looking from her to Miho and back. "What does cooking have to do with tanks?"Pepperoni smiles before she answers in for her leader. "Do you cook, Commander?">"Mostly breakfast- Bacon and eggs, Pancakes...">"Not like you can...">"Of course!">Other.
>>34267287>"Of course!">"Not like you all can of course, ">"Mostly breakfast- Bacon and eggs, Pancakes..:
>>34267287>>"Mostly breakfast- Bacon and eggs, Pancakes..."better than instant noodle.
>>34267287>"Mostly breakfast- Bacon and eggs, Pancakes..."Actually, I mainly live in terror of my grandfather's cooking. He is Kitchen Satan.
in other news, seems we find another need for speed tank for Ooarai...http://ftr.wot-news.com/2014/08/20/a29-clan-the-forgotten-cruiser/
>>34267329+2, because needs to be done.
>>34267287>"Mostly breakfast- Bacon and eggs, Pancakes...">Other. "The simple and straightforward stuff most of the time. Not so much on fancy dishes with meticulous prep time. Those are for rare special occasions."BTW...>Anzio nods slowly.Must be quite a thing to see an entire school ship nod.
>>34267867I imaginei t could be done if one were careful with the stabilizing fins...
>>34267867>>34267944>pic relatedbesides, its been fixed in editing, I still get a chuckle out of some of the errors.
Hey scholar, you think you'd be able to put together an epub for GuPQ?
>>34268023after it goes through a lot more editing and proofreading, I don't see why not.
>>34268110Sweet. It'd be pretty good to have a version I can read on my tablet.
>>34268023>>34268232right now I'm looking over 'how to create/edit wiki media' so this can go on 1d4chan. would go much quicker if I could send it to someone who already knows their way around a wiki, but I'll make due. The main thing that's nagging me right now is I have no idea where to divide episodes up into chapters/parts. Hence, I will be finding other readers back at college to get their feedback.
>>34268296You know people IRL and at college who read GuPQ?
>>34268348well, my college has a writing lab, and I intend to run all this by them, in pieces of course, once I return this weekend. So, technically, not yet.
>>34268388They have no idea what they're in for.
>>34268453I have a bit of a joke rep for printing off an entire PDF of a RPG that tied up the printer que for an hour. I think this might top it.
>>34268388Just say you read itmake sure they don't find out that it's actually just fapping to little girls in tanks
>>34268545well, I have to say why I'm asking for help, so I'll have to be honest and say 'I need help editing, not my own work, I volunteered to edit.' > fapping to little girls in tankswhat fapping?
You shrug. "Nothing really fancy like you guys do... Pancakes and bacon for breakfast- and I know my way around a Barbeque... Burgers, dogs and steaks, mostly." You shake your head. "Honestly, always tried to stay away from the big flashy European recipes- too many things for me to screw up." You smile with the self depricating joke.Pepperoni nods and closes her eyes as she thinks. "Well, those 'flash European recipes' require a lot of thought, patience, practice and even timing- only a few minutes are the difference between pasta that's tough and chewy or soggy and mushy. You have to know exactly when its perfect..."Anchovy continues. "These are the same things that make one excellent in a carro armato." She says, using some pretty out of place Italian. Well, maybe not for her.Miho smiles. "Our gunner feels much the same about her gunnery and her flower arranging. She feels that each makes her better at the other.">"So how did you beat Maginot anyway?">"So what does my cooking say about my tanking?">Other.
>>34268615>what fapping?to the tanks anon
>>34268702>"So how did you beat Maginot anyway?"Tell us your brilliant plan (so that we can guess yours for the next match)
>>34268702>"So how did you beat Maginot anyway?">>34268704I was being Facetious.discussion topic: lets say you were allowed to hook up a Oddball-esque music system to a tank. what tank would you pick, and what music would you play in combat?
>>34268702>>"So how did you beat Maginot anyway?">>"So what does my cooking say about my tanking?"
>>34268862changing my vote to this.
>>34269081Both. Both is good.
>>34268702>"So how did you beat Maginot anyway?"If we're still speaking in food and cooking euphemisms, it seems to me that she added a "secret ingredient" so to speak. Maybe even more than one?C'mon, P40 reveal already. We're not gonna disparage its riveted construction method at the very least. Afterall, our team has two in use and one in reserve that has the same characteristics.
"So, what does my cooking say about my tanking?" You ask, you'd lean in because its actually a pretty interesting connection. Unfortunately your stomach won't let you move more than a few inches forward.Anchovy looks to Pepperoni, who looks back. Anchovy nods and her lieutenant gives you her analysis. "You're straight-forward, even simple. You don't have the patience for elaborate plans, you prefer to look at the problem and solve it with the most direct application of brute force you can find."You blink a couple of times. "Thanks?" You're not sure whether you should take it as a compliment, but its not entirely innaccurate- even if you still think you're a bit more flexible than she gives you credit for. "So... You guys took down Maginot? How did you manage that?"And with that, Anchovy smiles at you.
>>34269796NEXT TIME ON GIRLS UND PANZER QUEST...>We find out how David beat Goliath.>Secret plans!>Daring assaults!Girls und Panzer Quest will continue either tomorrow or Thursday. (Not entirely sure if I'm switching schedules with someone tomorrow...)Either way it'll start at 4-5PM PST!Follow me on Twitter for schedule changes and to find out when the thread goes live!https://twitter.com/BlackJackGuPQ
>>34269796>you prefer to look at the problem and solve it with the most direct application of brute force you can find."Reminds me of Miho's assessment of Pravda. They'll either love us or hate us.
>>34269832Thanks again BJ!
>>34269832Also, BJ, whenever you take your hiatus, that will be the time I start either the wiki or ebook conversion.
>>34269846Hit it with things! If it doesn't fix it, you're clearly not hitting it hard enough. If it breaks, well, it was fucked anyway?
>>34269930yep. difference is, we hit it from many sides/ways. Pravda, not so much.
Also, I almost used 'In which we have a chat with Anzio' instead of 'In which we have a chat with Anchovy' as the description for the thread. I blame BJ.
tbh if I was a Japanese school girl and I wanted to come up with an Italian sounding nickname for a girl named Anzai Chiyomi, I'd think Anchovy was a good nickname too.Though I wonder if the writers came up with her nickname or real name first
>>34270060the answer is yes.the nickname, of course. its hard to be original
>>34270060I should think up silly nicknames for the Koala girls
>>34270113> Bruce> Mate> Chopper
>>34270113Have a character named Yuka.Eucalyptus
>>34270113Taz. real name, Oni-something
>>34265043They're "Soul Names", like "Gai Daigoji". Kudos to reference.
>>34269832Yukari better use that flare-gun and grappling hook in a hilariously botched and unnecessary rescue attempt.
>>34275519Or a perfectly executed and hilariously unnecessary rescue that Miho and Russells never have the heart to explain to her.
