In a world where humanity has lost control of the oceans to the deep sea fleet, the only hope to counter this threat are the Kanmusu, a group of girls who possess the spirit of Japanese warships. The story revolves around Fubuki, a destroyer who comes to the Chinjufu base to train with other Kanmusu.
If military themed loli action is what you have your heart set on, then look no further than these two series. Each of them follows a diverse cast of girls of all personalities and tropes as they split their time between acting like the usual cute schoolgirls, and blowing their enemies up with their weaponry of choice, be it battleship mecha suits or tanks.
It’s fairly safe to say that KanColle will be taking more of a slice of life approach than Girls und Panzer ever did, with the latter being extremely successful with creating somewhat realistic, and extremely intense battles filled with strategy and fun. KanColle appears to be taking a less serious approach to naval warfare, but it still shows promise of being able to entertain when the girls need to throw down.
So if you enjoyed either of these shows, or just have an interest in slice of life and military themed shows, then these two should really be the perfect place for you to get settled.
Great stories centered on a group in a militaristic setting, (AU future, mankind is falling) school-type setting. A new member turns out to be the ace.
I've found both to be fun and tugging at the heart-strings. Great stories
In the year 2079 CE, malevolent creatures known as Worms arrived in our galaxy, wiping out mankind quickly and efficiently. Finally, when the war's outcome seemed to favor the invaders, humanity united and nuked its own planet in order to survive. Though the Worms were defeated, 50% of the Earth's land mass submerged under the ocean, and 90% of all young men were killed in battle. Now, several years later, the Worms have returned. The world's best hope for survival is the genius Karen, the swordswoman Otoha and quick-thinking Eika; together, they make up the Sonic Diver Unit, a mechanized unit capable of taking down the Worms! Yet the powers that be are skeptical of its force and aptitude. Can the girls prove their worth, and take down the enemy?
Marika is living the normal life of an average girl in space: attending her school's yacht club, keeping up with the latest trends, and working part time. One day can change a lot, however. Not only was her late father a notorious space pirate, he was also the Captain of the equally notorious Benten Maru! What's worse, she's just inherited his position and the pirate's life that comes with it.
Both Bodacious Space Pirates and Girls und Panzer are about schoolgirls in short skirts doing cute and crazy things. Like becoming the captain of a pirate ship in space. Or commanding tanks for a school elective sport.
Both shows keep fanservice to a minimum and are character focused, with a large cast of secondary characters who you don't really need to keep track of. They are light,hearted and easy to watch. So you should watch them both. Now.
The Nation of Gallia has always remained neutral in conflicts and has only gone to war to defend itself. However, as war flares between the East Europan Imperial Alliance and the Atlantic Federation, Gallia is soon targeted for its abundance of ragnite ore, a versatile and hugely valuable material. The Civilian Militia is soon called into action, and Welkin Gunther - son of a legendary war hero - is named leader of Squad 7. Under his command are the headstrong and practical Alicia Melchiott; the sharp-tongued Brigitte Stark; the grizzled veteran, Largo Potter; and Welkin's adopted sister Isara, whose Darcsen heritage means she faces prejudice, even from members of her own squad. With the rest of Squad 7 and the mighty tank Edelweiss, they must do their best to defend Gallia.
Though a bit different for Girls und Panzer is a bit lighter, sweet and features younger characters while Senjou no Valkyria is more serious and features older characters, both shows can give you the action and enjoyment that you're looking for with some drama included.
In the year 2039, global warming has caused a sudden rise in sea level, leading mankind to lose a great deal of land territory. At the same time, a fleet of mysterious warships clad in mist, known as the "Fleet of Fog," begin to appear throughout the world's seas, attacking humanity's warships with their powerful superweapons. Humanity threw all the military strength it possessed at the Fleet of Fog in a decisive battle, but was crushed by the fleet's overwhelming might...
These two have a slight military feel that, reminded me of the Second World War, with Girls und Panzer having Tanks and Arpeggio of Blue Steel Naval ships from that era. Cute girls and tanks, cute girls and Warships. What is there not to like.
