10/10??!! (technically 9.6/10 but hey, who the hell cares)
You crazy man? NO! I am most certainly not!
This movie displays the epicness of the whole GuP series in 2hrs, a true masterpiece!

STORY 9/10
The story of the Girls und Panzer series is faithfully followed, and not in dragging on kind of way! There is not much that can be said that won’t spoil anything, but the series showed clear development, introduces you very nicely to the movie, they start the movie by reintroducing the schools from the series. There is a clear structure of every story: setting, complication, resolution, and this movie hit the nail on all of these. As per usual there were side plots developing characters and relations between characters.

There are a few plot twists here and there. AND NO THESE WERE NOT BAD PLOT TWISTS… (BTW: The premise of the whole GuP story of Girls School VS Girls School in tanks, is rather weird, but I think they are trying to make a point about gender equality)

About the gender equality: The series, when a promotional video of Sensha-dou is shown, talks about how it’s good for women to grow up strong, have skills that are not usually associated with the female gender (and skills that ARE associated with the female gender), and the fact that a usually male job is not a male job here. I may be overthinking this though… and I’m not one to judge these things ^-^

All in all, the story was shallow, but that doesn’t stop it from being good!
With good development and reintroduction, the movie lays out for an epic 2hrs of action (which is the main focus of the series after all).

Art 10/10
The art is just like the series’ art if not slightly better (I watched the series in 720p and the movie 1080p, so that might be the cause of the difference). If you haven’t watched the series, you SHOULD. The 3D tank models have never looked out of place, in the series and here. The models are well done and always accurate to look like the tank IRL.

Sound 10/10
If you had watched the series, you would have heard a lot of flutes and glockenspiels. Some complained about the “high pitch-ness” of the OST, but in the movie they kinda toned that part down and replaced it with more strings and bass. This is quite the improvement as it makes the marching songs that are played suit the battle scenes much more than they did in the series (and I’m not saying they were bad in the series). The guns sounds and explosions actually felt more realistic. To me they sounded like the updated sounds you hear in World of Tanks. I did see Wargamming Japan in the credits.

Character 9/10
Characters are all consistent. Thank goodness for that. EVEN THE NEW CHARACTERS! The new characters are not really introduced, but from watching, you do get a very good picture of who they are with what they do, say and look like. There is a trio of girls that are, probably, purposely kept rather ambiguous.

This is a movie however. Movies are limited to a 2hr timeslot, whereas the series had about 4 hrs (20mins x 12eps). This leaves little time for character development, BUT few characters are introduced, and as stated above, you still do get a clear image of them. OH AND WE LEARN MORE ABOUT THE NISHIZUMI SISTERS AND THE BOKOS (dem teddy bears).

Enjoyment 10/10 (11/10 if i could!)
The movie did not try to be something it could not be, following a similar formula to the series.
Character development –> Tank Battle <-- During battle more development There are a few laughs here and there and parts where it is very dramatic and some could say exaggerated (my friend was laughing through a part that was very dramatic). This however is no problem as it serves to show character relationships (except for the physics that were "dramatised"). If you dont mind the rather weird premise, the cute characters, and full female crew, this movie will be great and satisfy you like it satisfied me as an anime viewer, and as an GuP fan. The battles keep you on the edge of your seat, and character to character relations warm your heart. The movie is a thrilling masterpiece that is recommended to all anime viewers and GuP fans, or any who enjoyed the series! PS: IF YOU HAVENT WATCHED THE FIRST SERIES AND MATERIAL RELATED TO IT, DO IT. JUST DO IT MATE. Overall 9.6/10 - rounds to 10, so... 10/10 😀 So then, PANZER VOR! I realise my review is a little all over the place, but that's because I added some stuff after my 1st rewatch (so I've watched this twice now). IT REALLY WAS THAT GOOD FOR ME~ (* >ω<)b WHERE IS THE CONTINUATION? (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ [/collapse] [collapse title=“Reviews3:”]Girls Und Panzer Der Film is one of the most enjoyable film I have watched this year. It features tank battles that's longer than the first season, more exciting to watch and 75% of the movie is just pure adrenaline thrilling tank battle scenes that makes this 2 hour movie more like a 15 minute movie. [Story]: (7/10) "Panzer Vor!" "Commander Nishizumi, what does "Panzer Vor" mean?" In the first season, the girls of Ooari High School worked together to get to the top and won the tournament that prevented the Ooari High School's shut down. It turns out that the High School is still going to be shut down despite the girls winning the tournament because of "reasons". In short, the story of the movie is not something new. It basically recycles the first season's story but with a little twist. The High School has been shut down and the girls must win the new tournament by facing and winning against a University team so they can save their school once again. If you're hoping for a new story then I think you'd be disappointed in the movie's recycled story line but I have my reasons on why I enjoyed this movie and why I thought this is better than the first season. The main reason why I enjoyed this movie so much is of course, the Tank vs Tank battle scenes. If the tank battle scenes was too short for you in the first season then you'll definitely enjoy the long tank battle scenes that can last for over half an hour. The movie also has way more ridiculous tank physics that breaks the laws of physics like that roller-coaster scene (The Italian tank vs the American M24 Chaffee) that I definitely enjoyed watching but also super ridiculous and that one scene where a Hetzer used a flipped Italian tank as a ramp to destroy that monstrous 600mm artillery tank. There's also way more tank drifts in this movie. Like can you imagine a heavy tank like a KV-2, IS-2 or a Tiger I drifting? Yeah, me neither but we gotta remember that anime physics ≠ real life physics. There are also a bunch of new tanks introduced like the American Heavy Tank M26 Pershing, Light Tank M24 Chaffee, Heavy Tank T28/T95, the British Heavy Tank Conqueror, and that 600MM "Karl-Gerät" artillery or simply code named as "Karl". We get to see all the new tanks introduced in action and it made a guy like me scream like a fangirl because I'm happy that the staff went all in with this movie. If you're a tank enthusiast like me or you have a great knowledge about tanks then this movie will freaking make you drool. The story of GuP der Film may be weak but the plot is not really the main focus of the film. If you focus on the action scenes then you'll definitely enjoy this movie way more than the first season. ______________________________________________________________ [Art/Animation]: (10/10) The studio have really outdone themselves in terms of the movie's animation. In my first season review, I said that the only issue I have with the show's animation is its frame rate issues. In the movie, to no surprise, they solved the frame rate issues and the tank battles were more smoother and it made the tank battle scenes more thrilling to watch. The CGI tank designs are great as usual and just like the first season, there's the "attention to details". Finally, there's absolutely no fanservice scenes. Thank.God ______________________________________________________________ [Sound]: (10/10) In my first season review, I said that I would watch the movie with my high-quality bass headphones even if it kills my ears. Well, I did watch the movie in my headphones and the tank engine sounds, gun sounds and the track sounds are better. Something tells me that they actually recorded a real life tank firing because the tank gun sounds in the movie killed my ears once again. Especially the sound of that KV-2's 152mm gun sound and Karl's 600mm gun sound which is the loudest gun sound I have ever heard in my life. It's all worth it though. I love the movie's OST, especially those marching sounds and the OST version of the ED theme song from the first season. The movie has no OP theme song and the ED theme song is "piece of youth" by ChouCho. I actually enjoyed the ED theme song. The melody is more dramatic rather than a happy-go-lucky tune which, to me is more fitting because this is the last GuP in the series and I highly doubt there will ever be a sequel. ______________________________________________________________ [Characters]: (8/10) All of the characters in the first season that you know and love (including those character who fought against the Ooari High School Academy in the tournament) are all here fighting side by side which isn't really a surprise if you've seen how they acted after being defeated by Ooari High School. It was actually pretty interesting to see these characters fight side by side because not only do they get more screentime but we also get to know more about these characters and the opportunity to learn more about them since they were the antagonists in the main series. I'm not going to talk about the characters again since you already know them (assuming that you have watched the first season but if you didn't then you're making a dumb ass move.) ______________________________________________________________ [Enjoyment]: (10/10) When I heard that GuP der Film is going to basically have the same old storyline, my hype and expectations for this movie were super low. When I decided to watch the movie, this movie completely blew my expectations and I enjoyed every second of it. I didn't expect the tank battle scenes to be longer and this exciting to watch. Hell, I didn't even notice that the 2 hours had passed by when the credits rolled in. That's how much I enjoyed this movie. ______________________________________________________________ [VERDICT] Girls Und Panzer der Film is definitely one of the best and most enjoyable anime movie I have ever seen. The plot may be weak but it makes up for it by having a fun cast of characters and longer and thrilling tank battle scenes. If you're a fan of the first season then this movie is a must-watch. Though, I wish the movie was about 10-15 minutes longer because the ending was a bit unsatisfying but that's just me. Anyways, I will definitely buy the Blu-Ray version once someone licenses it in the West because I will be watching it again and the staff involved in this movie deserves every single penny in my bank account. [OVERALL]: (9.4/10) Pros: +Thrilling Plus Longer Tank Battle scenes +Outstanding Animation and Great CGI Tank Designs +Great Soundtracks and an almost realistic tank gun, engine, and track sounds +Fun cast of characters Cons: -Same old storyline [/collapse]
