I don’t know how I exactly feel about this show. I love me some girls with guns a la Gunslinger Girl, but I don’t think it will hit the same philosophical notes. This might be a fun show with its moments but I don’t think it will be that great. From the promotional video, none of the characters look particularly interesting and the lead’s personality seems to hinge on the fact she’s clumsy.
Ok, Middle school girls and a tank? I’d prefer high school girls for it to be a bit less squicky, but let’s not think about that too much (and maybe they are just moe high school girls). I though Upotte! was fun, and this looks at least in the same orbit as that.
@spongbros: My pick for the upcoming anime season is Girls un’ Panzer. Look, trust me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcv3fLTlD-k #garupan @garupan http://girls-und-panzer.jp
