Upotte!!

Upotte!!

Funko, Shigu, Eru and Ichiroku seem to be typical school girls on the surface, but they're actually powerful, dangerous guns that must be treated with care and respect! Together, they attend Seishou Academy, a special place where not only are all of the students guns, the teachers are as well. That is, except for one new educator who arrives, unaware of the crazy, dangerous times that lie ahead!

If cute girls and "playing" with dangerous war weapons in a school setting are your thing look no further than these 2 titles!

sothis sothis says...

These two titles cater to military otaku - either with tanks or guns - all involving cute girls. Upotte is the far more ecchi of the two, however.

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

Both shows feature plenty of cute schoolgirls and military equipment, and they are also pretty lighthearted. Upotte!! is the more creepy and objectifying of the two, and sports a substantially more plain cast than Girls Und Panzer.

Bestanimeserie Bestanimeserie says...

Both shows are about girls in wich one show the girls use tanks (girls und panzer) and the other use guns (Upotte!!) so if you like girls with deadly weapons you should like both of these titles. Upotte!! has more comedy and a bit of ecchi while girls und panzer soley focus on girls doing cute things and thanks. If you liked on of these shows you will like the other

Bradalee Bradalee says...

Both shows feature cute girls in a military setting. Girls und Panzer focusing on tank warfare, while Upotte!! focuses on gunplay. The latter is considerably more ecchi than the former.

Both are an enjoyable "Slice of Life" school girl story involving military weapons.   The stories are not only about perfecting their craft be it Panzerfahren or sharp-shooting, but the pains, trials and tribulations of growing up.  Anoher common theme is the value of friendship helping one another overcoming obstacles during the manychallenges of life.

Saki

Saki

Winning a game of Mahjong is hard; getting the same score every time is practically impossible. So imagine the surprise of the school Mahjong club when Saki Miyanaga walks in and does just that. Despite her dislike for the game, her talent is obvious and it's up to the club members - the top-heavy Nodoka, the energetic Yuuki, the cunning Mako and the permanently in control club president Hisa - to persuade her to join the club and help them reach the Nationals. But even then, will their combined skills be enough to overturn some of the toughest high school players the country has to offer?

These shows both gave me the same vibe; they both focus around a talented girl who joins a high school club and enters in a competative tournament with a rookie team. Although the types of tournaments are really different the huge female casts and small amounts of fan-service make me think if you enjoyed one you might enjoy the other.

Betelgeuse Betelgeuse says...

Did you like watching those stereotype schoolgirls fighting in inter-school tournaments, with the protagonist and trump card of a new upcoming and yet unknown school being a girl who had first needed to be reteached that playing the game is fun, and all of this together within growing bonds of friendship? Well, that you'll find in this other anime too.

Boriddy Boriddy says...

Because both animes are about cute girls being in a tournament enviorment for Girls und Panzer it is tanks and for Saki it is Mahjong, they have great humor and good actions.

Bradalee Bradalee says...

Both anime start with a girl joining a school and being coerced into joining a club that they have an obvious natural talent for, but for whatever reason each girl has insecurities about joining the club, and are initially resistant to taking part. The girls then soften up and the road to inter-school competition begins!

Both shows feature cute girls in them, with Girls und Panzer possibly being more 'moe'. That said, i'd say the cast is generally more likable than in Saki, although both have quite a varied group of girls.

Really, both anime have almost everything in common with each other, Girls und Panzer is the better executed of the two, but fans of one should enjoy the other a lot.

closetanimefan closetanimefan says...

In both of these  anime the main charcter is a shy girl that gets pushed into a club that she didn't really want to be a part of becuase she is really good at it. She also is doesn't like the "sport" at the begining because of a family history with it, but has an older sister that is really into it and that she has to beat. Throughout the show characters around the main character turn this thing they hated into something they enjoy again. Mahjong and Tankery are different games, but other then that these anime felt very much the same. If you liked one, you should check out the other.

neogalactic54 neogalactic54 says...

The sort of slight rivalry between sisters exist in both anime. Furthermore, there is also the competitive element which I find quite similar with all the featuresd moves and tactics.

The new girl at school somehow gets roped into joining a club with a military themed activity. Both shows are fairly light in tone and feature a group of cute, and likable girls as they throw themselves into their respective club activities. Comedy is also at the forefront of each show, with plenty of laughs to be had.

C3-Bu perhaps doesn't have as impressive an activity as the tank warfare in Girls und Panzer, but both manage to make the clubs matches very exciting and fun to watch, with plenty of strategy and passion from the cast.

sothis sothis says...

Girls und Panzer and C3 will appeal to the same audience for sure - cutesy girls doing war/gun-related exercises, assorted comedy episodes, etc.

Rastamepas Rastamepas says...

C3-Bu and GuP are pretty similiar. Both have a new girl at school join a club that involves some sort of action and war game activity. In C3-Bu it's airsoft guns and in GuP it's tanks. If you like a cute girls doing action oriented war games with a light natured/comedy tone I'm sure you enjoy both.

Both contain cute girls in using military machinery (ships and tanks), although the background in both shows is a bit different. Both also have a similar art style. 

Trinah101 Trinah101 says...

Both have cute girls using millitary machined (in Haifuri we have boats, and in Girls und Panzer we have tanks) and these machines are a big part of their highschool life. They are also all-girls (though in Haifuri we see an all-boys school that has submarines. 

In both, firing at eachother seems to do nothing but scare/unsettle a little. (Although in Haifuri it seems they are probably more serious while in Girls und Panzer they are non-lethal). 

Both use stategy and teamwork to solve problems.

The main characters are very similar in personality as well.

They are also both written by Reiko Yoshida

vincent789 vincent789 says...

The Art style is nearly the same.

The Animations is exactly the same!

The Sound IS the same!

And the characters are just the same.

These two are so alike it's hard to make a diffence.

Plus they both look like they are sponser at (in this case)

World of Warships

And in the other case

World of Tanks

With help from the other members of the all-female 1121st Platoon, Kanata finds her place in the bustling city, bringing joy and humor to the war-weary residents while learning a great deal about the world.

Fan of young girls in a military setting, without all the violence and blood? Then you'll probably enjoy both of these.

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

Both So-Ra-No-Wo-To and Girls und Panzer sports a cast of teenaged girls doing cute stuff with military equipment. Both are very lighthearted and contain no actual violence or anything like that. They are also very light on fanservice.

Fans of either show would do well to check out the other one.
