The curve says something different. Ticket purchases were going down before getting the next jump. So it was not sold out at the time of the new screens.

What i meant was, they kept screening it instead of riding the initial hype and letting it die. They kept it alive long enough for the BDs to hit, and that's where the second jump came from

ATX viewings were from 21:00 to 21:30, but those were an entire week late. It was very much a late night show, just with a very delayed prime time slot.

SAORI KILLS DARJEELING

Zachary Gomez

Many reasons.

1) The Dialogue in GuP is proper Japanese as opposed to the abbreviated crap that kids like. This makes it accessible to the older audiences who do not want to watch mindless dribble.

2) The interactions between the characters is fun, but always loving and respectful. Every conflict is resolved with mutual respect and the forging of friendships. This is a traditional view of how things should work in an adult world, and what parents want to teach their children. This makes it family-accessible.

3) The visuals are bright, colorful, but not overly stylistic. Everything is displayed clearly and there is no question what anything is.

4) No nudity or dumb adolescent pandering. GuP is a wholesome Christian anime.

5) The story, while simple, does not insult the intelligence of the audience. They don't bother over-explaining every detail about the motivations of each character. The Hana arc where she is disowned by her mother is an excellent little parable of standing up for what you believe in, understanding, and reconciliation. It is a very traditional tale.

5)The tanks are animated to the highest quality. You will not find any multi-million dollar movie that features CGI tanks of that variety, let alone quality. It sets the bar extremely high for most studios, and audiences that are stuck with poorly-animated cartoons get slapped in the face with something that is just beautifully done.

6) I will stop here because the list is too long. Simply put, GuP is a family-oriented work about faith, determination, hard work, forgiveness, and love that can be enjoyed by everyone including the elderly.

I'm pretty confident he's not trolling, just fucking delusional.

I'm a huge GuP fan and this is the most retarded post I've ever read. People like GuP because of motherfucking TANKS blowing the SHIT out of each other. That's the whole reason they made the show, everything else was just an excuse to get away with producing an anime about tanks.

The entire story and all of the main characters are trite and of little value. And that's great, because the show is totally self-aware about it. The whole story is a huge absurd gag. The whole premise and every character development side plot is part of the central absurd joke of the series. It's all about the juxtaposition of these feminine girly high school girls with rough masculine tank combat. It's a JOKE. She learns to arrange flowers with more vigor because she fires the main gun of a tank? Come on! Senshadou is the pastime of great wives and mothers? Girls swooning over the propaganda video? Love is just like tank combat?

GuP is just packed with satire, of its audience, of its creators, and of itself. That's what's beautiful about it, it's this perfect package that only exists as an excuse to have fucking tank battles.

he can't into metamodernism

Noah Gray
Noah Gray

all of the main characters are trite and of little value
Okay now this is just flat out wrong. Say what you will about the plot being corny or predictable, it's a sports anime, it's going to happen, but to say the characters aren't at least decently done is wrong. The entire thing is not a walking piece of satire as much as it does poke fun at it's over-the-topness and the fact you think so just shows you are a very negative individual who views everything in a negative lense.

I'm going to have to ask you to say something correct next time you respond.

I'm surprised, GuP aired more than 3 years ago. Who would have thought it would still be so popular?

I won't complain though, there is no way they will let it die with these numbers.

Eli Gonzalez
Eli Gonzalez

The creators have said before that they're done with GuP after the movie unless they can come up with something that's actually new and different, but with numbers like these...

I really hope they don't produce some terrible cheap cash-grab. Some shitty S2 that just continues a story which was logically resolved and rehashes the same premise. Something with the same tone and in the same world but a very different type of story with all new characters would be welcome.

Jordan Sanchez

With the number of new characters they introduced and how well it did, I'm really having trouble seeing season 2 not be a possibility.

Hunter Walker

Bentley Harris
Bentley Harris

The problem is that each one of those groups of characters, specifically the different culture schools, are paper thin. They only exist for the purpose of parody.

For example, the Japanese team is just this weird totem constructed of all the distinct characteristics that the Japanese military displayed in WW2. Their existence serves two purposes: to be an excuse for Japanese tanks to fight in the climactic battle, and to make their one joke at the expense of Japanese military history. And yes, they're given a little bit of an arc. But it's mostly so that they can keep driving home that same joke via juxtaposition.

Darjeeling isn't a character. She's a pastiche. She's served her purpose. Once you try and make her do actual things, once you try and give her a life outside of her paper thin existence, once you try and turn her into a real character, then the pastiche no longer makes any sense. How can those two things be reconciled? How do you reveal her backstory where she somehow ended up being this strange Winston Churchill knock-off who commands tanks, obsessively drinks tea while commanding tanks, and is apparently named after a tea. She literally doesn't have a real name. Does she have normal parents? Or are they some kind of weird joke, too?

I'm no longer sure why I'm talking about this. I think that a S2 would have to not be focused on any of the characters we've seen so far. /a/nons have suggested a totally new main cast and having Miho be the final boss this time. It's an interesting proposition.

Jayden Anderson
Jayden Anderson

Topping the movie would be hard.

A bunch of OVA showing other schools would allow for more worldbuilding while keeping people interested in the franchise, preparing the ground for a second season with a cast mostly different from the first (cameos would be expected of course). But the underdog story has already been done with Ooarai, not doing a rehash would be the main difficulty.

Kevin Edwards
Kevin Edwards

They can do an underdog story in another fashion. Make the main character a rookie tank commander of a minor tank in a large high-budget school with tons of tanks like Kuromorimine or Saunders.

She starts off as a mere cog in the machine but slowly proves herself by disobeying orders from the main commander in battle and making an independent decision that helps her school to win. The main dramatic conflict would be the MC versus the bureaucracy of her school as she slowly fixes its problems. The leader hates her at first but by the end they become friends and the leader chooses her as her right hand man.

Joshua Gonzalez

It is not nearly as much of a satire as you think it is. There is too much love in the story itself, and where the story does become serious, it takes itself seriously.

You asked why it is so popular, you were told why.

Are you some atheist of family films? They don't exist or something?

GuP is something an entire family can sit down and enjoy, something anime does NOT do well. Studio Ghibili is considered the Disney of Japan because it puts out family friendly works. GuP follows the same formula.

Families are the main demographic in ALL societies.

I think you're confusing content and intention. GuP was never in any form marketed towards families. The fact that it CAN function well enough for families doesn't change that, it's just a mere coincidence that comes with the director's decision to not include any lewd or violent content which was purely a tactic to make the show look more wholesome to otaku and military geeks.

Connor Sanders
Connor Sanders

not include any lewd
All that sex hair though.

Joseph Long

You're implying that sincerity and irreverence can't coexist, which is not at all the case. In fact that's at the core of metamodernism (which is a word that is hard to take seriously, I realize, but it is actually what we're talking about). That relationship also has a hugely esteemed presence in the history of anime. FLCL, Utena, Patlabor, Gunbuster. In fact, I'd trace it all the way back to possibly the single most defining and pivotal moment in the history of the medium: Do You Remember Love.

SDF Macross itself was developed almost as a cynical joke, but the way that joke was mixed with sincerity, culminating in the emotional climax of DYRL, became one of the biggest motifs in the anime world. GuP is a descendant of that lineage. The characters, the story, the setting, all of it is a huge gag. But you can tell that it's also a labor of love. The creators have even inserted themselves into the story in a self-deprecating way. Yukari isn't just representative of all tank nerds, she's the creators themselves. They like tanks way too much, which is what led to them making this show. The characters are absurd, but the writers take the message absolutely seriously because they believe in the themes being conveyed.

Ayden Moore
Ayden Moore

That reminds me of Shirobako, a hilarious comedy about making anime that also happens to be very sincere and moving. And it has GuP's director.

Andrew Wilson
Andrew Wilson

You can honestly apply that train of thought to a large majority of Ooarai's crews.

Hippo team, Duck, Mallard, Anteater, etc.

Characters that aren't the main ones are simply abbreviated to key distinct features to make them memorable despite their brief screentime. Caesar however got extended backstory with the OVA and Carpaccio.

Hell, Miho's team only got 4 out of 5 in explained characters. While Yukari, Mako, and Hana got backstory and introductions to their families, Saori was glossed over. However, if they didn't get their backstories, those three could be abbreviated to tank nut, Yamato Nadeshiko with underlying violent tendencies, and lazy genius. Saori's still just high school girl who wants to be popular.

Rounding out characters works perfectly fine afterwards. Explaining a gimmicky character well can be very effective in making a great character.

Also, the names are just codenames. Every school but Ooarai does it with the exception of Hippo team. They're literally all Japanese high school girls roleplaying. Darjeeling actually has a real Japanese name along with the rest of St. Gloriana.

The reason why these schools are like this are because they're literally sponsored by the nation they're parodying. Which I guess is also one of the reasons Ooarai was on the verge of being scrapped.

Robert Sanchez
Robert Sanchez

I wouldn't be surprised if Kay (Kei), Naomi and Alisa (Arisa) are their real Japanese names and the staff deliberately gave them names that can also double as American names.

4) No nudity or dumb adolescent pandering.
Pretty much this.
GuP is something you could show to old folk and normie friends witouth being preachy bland shit like half of Miyazaki films.

3) The visuals are bright, colorful, but not overly stylistic. Everything is displayed clearly and there is no question what anything is.
Yes. There's some subtle shaky cam but it's usually helps the CG blend in and give the tanks a weird feeling of weight rather than trying too hard to mimic tier combat footage filmed by panicked men with Parkinson's.

5)
Dramatic subplots like Hana's felt a bit awkward. Didn't mind Mako's much since it did give some serious insight to her character, and ballsy grandma was hilarious. At least they got mostly resolved quickly and moved on.

The main dramatic conflict would be the MC versus the bureaucracy of her school
Some of the schools in the spinoff manga are like that. Frenchaboo and Pole teams are seriously crippled because of internal power struggles.

Juan Price
Juan Price

Yeah there's certainly an element of that in Shirobako, it's definitely got satire going on, but I'd call it more of a dramedy. It's also an absolute labor of love, though.

Brandon Jenkins
Brandon Jenkins

They don't need to top the movie. All they have to do is making something which is acceptable to the fans.

The final action while it is stupidly over-the-top entertaining. But, there are fans who favored early action against Pravda & St Gloriana. It was more down-to-earth and mirrored the main series. So, it's still great in it's own respect.

GuP movie actually add more scoop of what could lies after. Miho hasn't reconciled with her mom, Oarai is still in financial crisis, and all those talk about graduation, Pro Leg and World Tourney opening up so much path to explore.

And talking about the action itself. They have yet to try thematic terrain action with mud, rain forest, desert or even high-altitude battle. And there are still WW2 tanks has yet to make an appearance like Comet and Cromwell.

So yeah, there are still loads of content they can milk as long as they're not being Jew about it.

Joshua Robinson
Joshua Robinson

I wouldn't go this far but in comparison Madoka Rebellion is some cynical bullshit that earned a lot of it's popularity through stealth marketing and combining fanatical fanbases together to generate a hit when they were at their most exploitable. GuP had to work for everything from the ground up through good old fashioned word of mouth and just becoming popular in it's own right from snowballing positive feedback.

As a very casual Anime watcher, a verified Tread Head, and somewhat of a military buff this series ticks all the boxes of "just barely watchable" The tanks, all of the ones represented in the series are "historically accurate. From the Assault 2 (Hetzer) to the M4 Shermas and their British (why the fuck was it on the US team?) variant the Firefly. To the USSR team and their platoon of T-34s and the ISs and the horrifying KV2, nearly every tank was represented with their strengths and flaws. (MAUS being a big lumbering bastard that honestly shouldn't have been fought, bur ran from. The Tiger being an absolute nightmare to fight against, but was unreliable... German tanks were a bit romanced over in the series weren't they?) Another nice touch was how the strategic doctrine of nations were represented by teams. US team using a BLOB of M4s to outnumber the other team 3-1 was actually a historically accurate representation of the WW2 combat doctrine of the US. But tactics, this just made me kind of groan. The characters? Meh, generic afternoon cartoon archtypes. Short girl with "short man syndrome" that has to be "master-blaster" carried by her teams tallest member was the only one I honestly had a chuckle about. Bottom line? This is a rather crap anime. But it's pretty good tank spank material.

Christian Hall

LL is popular because it was many people's first time seeing an idol anime with full on choreo. Plus it sustained its popularity with a free mobage.

As for the movie, it's because of the brand naming. But the movie itself was crappy.

Lincoln Sanders

Topping the movie would be hard.
Not with the Pro League. Miho being a fresh grad is a star super rookie while Maho's the 3 time MVP, just in time for the World Tournament which is in 2 years as of the movie. Miho will have at least 1 year's experience in the pros by then. Pro League will have artys on the level of Karl and tens of Centurions running around. It'll be good.

That's basically Little Army 2.

To a gamer it's not. It's just like Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal again.

Ryder Wright
Ryder Wright

Yeah, but what are they going to base the next season on? The gimmick of GuP has always been that the main characters are utterly outmatched in numbers and equipment both and yet manage to pull through. Once they enter Pro World Series I expect shit to be a little stale if they roll up in a PzIV and the entire enemy team consists of fucking Abrams tanks.

Nathaniel Cook

Now they lose on experience. And I'm guessing the tanks will be upgraded. Like Cold War.

Dylan Collins
Dylan Collins

But cold war tanks have been designed for one thing and one thing only, and that is either push from the Fulda gap to the Rhine in two weeks max or if you were on the other side of the iron curtain, to mobility or mission kill as many T-72 as you can in the shortest amount of time you can. Both had the basic design principle to function for two weeks of literal hell as the nuclear apocalypse of modern civilization was happening everywhere around them. This does not lend itself very well to Senshado unless you want to introduce chemical and atomic warfare!

The whole point of the movie is to throw physics out of the window to make sure the rule of cool applies, providing kickass jumping the shark moments.

user, you're doing it wong. You think this is a war movie, or a sports movie.
Think about it:
- fight scenes are LITERALLY on fast camera (no, seriously, they deliberately animated the tanks --ALL tanks-- moving twice as fast as the speed they state them to be moving)
- jumps, jumps everywhere, over imposible heights and lengths
- have I mentioned senshado is technically a martial art?
- you got ninja tanks attacking from ambush wearing full-face masks
- the master of the style duels teh heir of the other style
Didn't you realize? It's A FUCKING WUXIA MOVIE.

My favorite part was the Centurion Mk.1 wrecking everything that moved on its own. Its driver may be plain as fuck and wear stereotypical nerd glasses but she's one crazy driver.

Also forgetting the heroic, legendary fighter that serves as inspiration for both rivals, is the one who stops them fighting and makes them be allies.
That is, Boko.

I don't think having Miho as an opponent would be quite as interesting after the movie. Her loss against Katyusha and Darjeeling have already proven that she's more than fallible.

I'm thinking about watching this show. Do I need to know a lot about tanks/military history in order to enjoy it fully?

Jason Ortiz

When i started i pretty much only knew the panzers, tiger and sherman.
It prompted me into learning a lot more and playing more war games.

This shit is super popular in nipland, I doubt everyone actually knows that much about tanks. I also have some friends who can't name any of the tanks in the anime except the hetzer. You are right if you say you'd enjoy more if you know more about WW2 tanks, but it won't stop the enjoyment if you don't.

I sure hope you forgot to mention the panzers, because how in the world would the hetzer be more popular?

Jaxson Collins

I should have mentioned, they can't name any of the tanks in the anime except the hetzer, after finished watching the anime. They know nothing before, like, really nothing. And they still find the anime enjoyable.

I though panzers were taught in school. As in, at least the name panzer.
At least in my class everyone knew what blitzkrieg was, we even bullied the jew kid by saying german things.

Probably in Europe. In my country, school history doesn't say much about WW2 other than we were suffering hard under Japanese occupation.

Well, I don't know. I don't like the curriculum here either, they are like underrepresenting the biggest and the most important armed conflict in history. They do tell us about the Japanese occupation, but not much about the context of the occupation. It's not surprising if you pick random guy on the street and you find out he don't know anything about how is WW2 and the japanese occupation related. Or probably don't know about WW2 at all.

Both of Miho's losses were due to the incompetence of her team though. Chihatan lost them the movie fight and the first battle vs Gloriana featured a very incompetent Ooarai.

Miho's true failures were stuff like the beginning of the University battle when they went back to stock tactics and when she was unable to control her team in the Pravda battle.

So can we get our 'serious' tank anime now? With realistic physics and in a random division as they train and eventually go to war? Doesn't have to get like fury or any hollywood tank squad movie.

They need to fucking keep their helmets on too. That's basic armour vehicle rules.

I don't think i can stomach girls being slaughtered again after that doujin.
Not into men in tanks either.
So i just wish it followed some semblance of physics and didn't keep going outside their tanks.

I just try not to think with this series and some times I break.

head out of the tank during gun fire
don't worry the tanks have a special lining of super armour that doesn't completely gimp speed, shape etc You can fire legit ammunition at each other and no one will die, even if the tank rolls a few times. Or hell, the shells will just fucking go around you if your heads out.
recoil/ricochet is limited, sometimes even used to perform tricks

We could go on for days but some things even in a setting of 'this shit is purely for fun, it's super safe' that gets broken so often. The girls are all beyond jackass or russian skywalk daredevil insane (those russian video's where people walk a ledge or tight rope up cranes, without any sort of gear).
