Hordes of Girls und Panzer otaku, itasha and a real type 74 have descended upon Oarai, the Ibaraki town in which the anime is set, for the Kairaku Festa, with the practice of enticing studios to set their anime in real locations proving as shrewd as ever.

    "It cannot go to the side here"

    Such ambiguous message...

    It is trying to say "You (it) cannot go (to) this (here) way (side)."

    The Japanese part says "Hey you, you're going in reverse!"

    More like "Hey you, you're going the wrong way!" in this case I think, hence the strange Engrish mistranslate.

    Israel produced a hot/cute catgirl in Upotte, so I'd petition for the Merkava to join in too. It is a decent tank anyway.

    That's funny, I was an ALT in Ibaraki. It's not known for much so I guess it's nice seeing Oarai getting some fame. It's mostly known for it's "Aqua World" aquarium, some landmarks of which can be seen in the shots above.

    If you count out the Principality of Zeon, most anime characters that have anything to do with Nazism don't really appeal to me. I do understand why Japanese audience prefers such backstories, with the more than interesting visual design from anything from the era, and the fact that Japan was one of the Axis during the World War 2.

    I'd much rather have the girls ride a T-34-85, in my humble opinion.

    Stalin wasn't any better. He actually was worse. Besides, Nazism has nothing to do with this anime.

    You knew him personally, didn't you?
    Let's not start a flame war here, I'll just say that I'm from one of the ex-communist countries, and that there is no perfect political system.

    However, staring at swastikas and iron crosses isn't quite a savory pastime when you know that more than half of your family had been killed in Jasenovac death camp by the Ustashi, just because they were of Serbian descent.

    When I look at a Panzerkampfwagen I see oppression, genocide and destruction, when I look at a T-34-85 I see liberation.

    Leave the "Muh holocaust" at the door please, this is about an anime not about the drama you didn't even live in your past life.

    Stalin killed many millions not hundreds of thousands indirectly(similar to how British did in their various colonies) but Hitler isn't any good either so I can understand. And even America is not entirely clean.

    The Japanese similar to others like to see their past choices in the best light possible.

    Try being a bit more cynical of life otherwise Anime will suck donkey balls. I mean you can watch Vividred and think about exploitation or just enjoy the pantsu.

    Shiro, Stalin didn't liberate any countries he merely drove the Axis out and took them for himself. During his rule he killed several times the ammount of people Hitler killed in his Gulags.
    The Red Army waited for the Germans to suppress the Polish upgrising before moving in just so they wouldn't have any opposition when taking over Poland.
    Saying "there is no perfect political System" doesn't justify the crimes and atrocities commited under Stalinistic rule.

    Yeah, Stalin only killed 100's of thousands of his own people. That's OK.

    As another person from an ex-communist country, I say both should rot in hell. While the Nazis killed far less of my countrymen than the Reds (in fact, everyone says we got off easy), both robbed the country clean: what the fleeing Nazis couldn't take with them, the Ruskies did.

    It's kinda like the proverbial game of dice where a result between one and five means you get slapped, while a result of six means you get another toss.

    Still, if I have to choose between Nazis and commies, I'd choose the former anytime.

    Fascism is alive and well in Japan. The idiocy you hear from right wing-nuts there, "purge the barbarians" and stuff, you wouldn't think are meant seriously anywhere else.

    Problem with Japan is it's never been occupied at the end of WWII, unlike Germany. Had they had some good Stalin style occupation, Ishihara and misc idiots wouldn't be with us today...

    Let them try to take their 'fascism' out on other nations. Last time they only got so far because their nation stabbed other people in the sleep (china and korea were barely out of feudal age majority wise, and never had the infrastructure of western-originating modern war machine structure, other powers were busy with war in europe).

    Now the east asian nations have risen to surpass japan, and other nations will fuck the japs to pieces.

    I would love to see it happen again - japs will finally pay in full for their childish ignorance. World is calling them out and they better hope their feet runs as fast as their mouth.

    Do you even know what the word 'fascism' means? If you think today's japan is fascist then you obviously don't. Just because they don't buy into the whole 'multicultural' thing doesn't make them fascist.

    Look, we get it. Japan did some bad shit in WW2. So what, is the answer to punish those living now who didn't have anything to do with the decisions made in that time? Will that satiate your desire for revenge? You want to 'fuck japan to pieces'? Do you even realize how sick you sound?

    You call the japanese childish and ignorant, but the one who refuses to grow up while wallowing in their own ignorance would seem to be you more than anyone else.

    What many people don't understand is that those 'fascists' are just voicing out and being more vocal about the underlying fundamental feelings of the japanese as a nation and people, as opposed to really being just a minority voice amongst everyone else. They are little lying cunts who thinks they have what it takes to fool other people.

    That didn't really work out great last time. It's always amusing to see how japanese constantly gets put in its place time and time again. Maybe they will try to entertain us again by making themselves the world's bitch.

    I always found it hilarious that some asian nations think they can win a war with foreign powers or especially United States when US is a the only powerful super-power nation around that has been training as much as they have in real battles for the last 10 years, and managed to take down a nation in just 21 days while inflicting such disproportionate casualties to the enemy that they still refuse to fight head to head with us even when presented with equal numbers and equipments. Our special forces are constantly ferreting out enemies in the mountains and in cross border raids, and our infantry and armor go against enemies hiding in concrete reinforced buildings made into fortresses to kill and capture targets all the time.

    Meanwhile, militaries in these nations parade about like whore queens in peacock drag, as if reading their fucking parade manual or 'instilling fighting pride' like a bitch made punk is supposed to get them out alive in a real fight.

    Battle experience trumps delusions of grandeur at any age. I look forward to seeing many dead pale yellow cunts by hands of other nations such as US, india, or
    even south east guerrilla nations.

    You don't know your history. Allied forces occupied Japan for years afterwards and helped "modernise" the country as a capitalist country; why do you think Baseball is the national sport???
