Can someone explain why the last two episodes of this show were three months after the rest?
Also, GuP thread.
bumping with best panzer
Basically during the season twice they weren't ready to show a new episode that week so they did a recap episode each time. They didn't get a TV slot until a season later to make up the remaining 2 episodes.
>not posting the better version
I laughed more than I should have at that.
i dont even watch this show
does anyone have that gif of one of the characters spinning from the opening or something for like 10 seconds
...I am the man, who arranges the blocks...
not posting the superior version
Just to add to his point, TV slots are hard to find on short notice. Japan is made up of multiple tv stations, and as such it is VERY difficult to organise a timeslot that fit the date nationally. Back when they only had one extra episode planned, they were able to find a single slot a month or two after the show ended. But then after they realise they had to find two extra timeslots instyead of one, it becam more difficult and had to strweatch to three months.
Buying a timeslot is like booking a party venue; you had to book ahead, as they aren't going to get you a slot on short notice.
Are you talking about this?
thank you so much holy shit i've been looking for this gif forever
Someone mentioned they had to redo a few scenes because one animator kept slipping in pantyshots or some retarded shit like that, thus >>102216266
fucking tetris?!?! didn't even know there was an english dub
but the score for this anime helped it rise above mediocrity
>OST alone helped it rise above mediocrity
You don't belong here
Anzu best girl
There is. Been watching episodes on my cable's on demand service.
It's as horrible as I've heard.
There's this thing called copyright anon
Also its a russian song not Tetris
Hey, it works.
>one animator kept slipping in pantyshots
I don't remember that, but I do remember the person giving the statement said that the episode was not up to their standard given how successful the show was proving to be.
That very well may have been code for "we chose to remove the panty shots" though.
Why would they do that?
Because the original song is illegal to copyright in the USA so they used a different Russian tune that is free
they fucking love tetris
Something about the song actually being copyrighted in the US. A russian immigrant who really likes his culture or some shit.
I think it's because of this
Sentai really really fucking loves Tetris
>implying "Peddlers" is not known as "The Tetris theme" even in motherfucking Russia
>implying you even knew the song name
if they used generic music shit like the OP and ED then the only plus would be tanks (tho its a big plus). the plot was predictable from the beginning and cute girls can be found in every other show
It it wasn't for fucking Disney the song would be in public domain by now
Because some fucker in the US claims to own the song's ©, backed up by domestic laws, even if it's in public domain in every single other country in the world, even having been released into such by its composser. That's why the song is available in all the world except in one country.
Best part is that it's not a trolling answer.
Actually, Actas outright REFUSED to deal with that fucker
Sucks to be you. You have my actual, sincerity mode, condolences.
So the excellent direction, detailed yet easy to follow battle scenes, sucessful catering to multiple audiences, and ample usage of old-fashioned cinematographic narrative techniques (all of them reported by critics and fans alike) simply flew over your head?
No, please, don't answer. Your domain of language (>>102219704 >generic music shit) already tells us that such is, indeed, the case.
>Actas outright REFUSED to deal with that fucker
>cinematographic narrative techniques
I bet most people didn't even notice the usage of restricted camera angles (as if it were a real camera with the action exiting out of frame and entering again, something that is not required in animation when the camera isn't actually "real") in episode 4. Old-fashioned pre-steadycam tricks, no less.
That fall down of me from up above?
cause tanks shooting at each other is so difficult to follow but i'll give you the old camera techniques that didn't occur to me. I would've noticed stupid camera zooming and shit like western movies. what I'm saying is i didn't think of that cause i didn't see terrible techniques . . . yeah
If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand the answer.
>inb4 "Even more if you don't explain it"
...OK, OK. Sometimes it's not just about earning more money. They were making a stand.Would you be willing to deal with someone who demands money for a song that he actually doesn't own, acorng to your own laws AND to the laws of the country where it was written AND to the laws of every other fucking country in the world?
So basically you're admiting that it all flew over your head, Anon.
only a third not all dammit
>tanks shooting at each other is so difficult to follow
In most animes, yes it is. Most of times you wouldn't be able to recreate the battle in a map afterwards - hey, often don't actually have idea who's shooting at whom. In GuP, however, you always know EXACTLY what's happening, where, and by whom -and without feeling spoonfeed about it. Rest assured, that's NOT easy. GuP just makes it LOOK like it's easy.
>They were making a stand
Who's "they" and what do you mean "making a stand"?
>Would you be willing to deal with someone who demands money for a song that he actually doesn't own, acorng to your own laws AND to the laws of the country where it was written AND to the laws of every other fucking country in the world?
Wouldn't even have to, would I?
As an actual, non-trolling, friendly advice, maybe you'll want to rewatch GuP looking for that kind of things. You'd be surprised, Anon.
>Not enjoying every cute girl show
Like anon said, you don't belong here.
>If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand the answer.
Called it, didn't I?
Whatever happened to this?
i'll just go back to lurking
and i'll rewatch GuP just not anytime soon
>cute girls can be found in every other show
But we just established GuP *IS*, indeed, moeshit!
Cute girls doing cute things
Friendly reminder that team bunny a best team
I thought the director actually challenged the animators to sneak in pantyshots without him noticing.
I'm guessing that since the studio had no idea that the show would get as popular as it did, they needed to rewrite the ending so they could fit more content in afterwards.
>using vague terminology and not bothering to specify to whom you were referring
It's like you're making a concerted effort to prevent me from understanding so you can gloat about it.
Aside from the happy fulfilling ending it got what other path could it have even taken?
Aside from the suffering, but even that can provide sequels.
I would definitely a Saki
>It's like you're making a concerted effort to prevent me from understanding so you can gloat about it.
They didn't want to pay money to some guy they don't think deserve the payment. Basic idea of not rewarding bad behaviour.
Just to add, it is the same reason movies and TV shows don't use the proper happy birthday song. Because if they did they had to pay the fucker who copyrighted it. And at some stage all the people in the industry said "screw this" and just made their own shareware version.
> Copyrighting the Happy Birthday song
HOW DO GUYS KEEP LETTING THIS KIND OF SHIT HAPPEN!?
wb own the song now
But the song was originally in public domain but due to some bizarre loophole it's not
The important question:
are there pantyshots in the BD's?
Miho, Saory, whole Rabbit team
I want to ruin her for marriage and stretch her out.
>whole Rabbit team
Sorry, I meant Anglerfish team (but for Mako).
Episode 8, 7'50'' (it's on screen for a whole 3 seconds!)
Same for Katyusha. The US didn't recognise USSR copyrights, so they also didn't recognise it being released to public domain by the author. Now you Yanks are saddled with it until the US copyright expires. (Or until your British former colonial power makes their own English language version - which of course couldn't be legally be sold to you).
Really, it's a "sucks to be you" case and my sarcasm is not directed at you but at the situation.
>that nonna smile
I lived my life for this
>copyrights expiring in the US
So why not just use it anyway since he obviously has no claim to it?
Corporatists. Sod 'em all.
>So why not just use it anyway since he obviously has no claim to it?
He has legal claims to it in America, unjust as it might be. So they had the choice of paying him or to not use the song. They choose to not use the song.
The guy is a crook, but law is on his side. Like Harmony Gold.
>implying the Panzer II couldn't easily deal with an M4 on its own
They have heads from the aliens in Mars attacks.
Maus Plushie a cute.
Won it at some Kuji locally.
Well fuck you, too, guy.
>They have heads from Void in Berserk.
Have a towel
What, they gonna make pillows out of each tank now?
I need that original
try google image search
You mean iqdb
nah, I used google to get that image
>joining the botnet
only this tank apparently, this is the B prize of some Garupan lottery.
Season 2 when?
The things I'd do to her.
Have we been invaded by complete fools?
With love, from /k/
>mfw there aren't more doujins
>Using more than three rounds to breach the door.
4/10 would no operate with.
>no Russian tanks in 360 version of WoT
Have they added anything since it came out? I got up to the Wolverine and started playing the PC version, which I've enjoyed more.
I don't have a PC right now, so 360 is all I've got. No clue on new stuff considering I just finished downloading it
Fair enough then.
When it first came out there was only American and German trees, both of which only have about half the amount of tanks from the PC version (not trying to promote the PC version or anything, but maybe that gives you an idea of how many there are), and only a few maps. I grew to hate Mines and Cliffs, Westfield was alright.
THERE IS A FUCKING LIMIT ON HOW YOU FUCKING ADVERFUCKINGTISE
YOU DO NOT PUT CHINESE CARTOONS INTO MY FOOTBALL
Don't you mean soccer?
I mean DiveGrass
Oh goy here we go
Why is America such a slut?
I'm mean, look at that fucking pose.
LOOK AT IT
>20mm KwK 30 (maximum penetration 20mm @ 100m)
>minimum armor 25mm
Never. EVER, doubt Maho again, Anon.
>pillows out of each tank
I keep throwing money at the screen and nothing happens
Does College-level Sensha-do get to use Pre-1970 tanks?
You best hope not, americunt
well, all ww2-era tanks are Pre-1970
Also, why the fuck every casual gets the notion that senshado is done only at highschools, or that it follows different rules there than at professional level? Can't you all into episode 10.5?
Picture related: Senshado best tank
>Implying you wouldn't Kay's star spangled banner.
Pls, America is best gup.
Please, Anon, she's Japanese. Do you know HOW MUCH hydrogen peroxide is bought every year by both Saunders and Glorianna? Hint: Too much
don't drown the Hetzer, please
>implying turtles can't swim
>kept slipping in pantyshots
I don't think that's the reason. For what I've heard, the director became INCREDIBLY pissed off at that someone, swore "never to forget that person's name", and reportedly he was so burnt out, he almost didn't want to make the movie. I doubt a simply "animators sneak a pantyshot" thing would cause that reaction - mainly when he had, on the record, dared them to sneak one if they could.
They got several: one >>102218017, another in episode 3 as Saori dives into the turret (both you need freeze frame and zoom to notice), then >>102223983 which is a joke pantyshot as they show a pantsu to camera, then two pantyshot-by-proxy in OVA 3 with Mako looking up Saori's skirt and in episode 11 with Iseeparis-chan doing same with Erika.
TL;DR: I believe it was more of a big production mistake of the kind that ruin a lot of work. Or someone accidentally the whole director's JAV folder. We may never know.
didn't some sport event or something eat an episode or two?
Or was that AO?
no, they didn't make their episodes in time so other episodes (recaps) were broadcasted instead
Actas is a very small studio
They only have 40 employees(+William=41) and they don't even have money to update their official site until GuP success

Anyone have links to the Yukari Specials?
I only found 4 out of 6 from nyaa and can't find other sources.
That's all that's been translated
Thought that might be the case
Went there at first but as >>102251227 said I stopped looking
Thanks anyways and Have some Darjeeling
I remember old American and British tanks slaughtering their newer Soviet counterparts in a pair of shooting wars in the 60's and 70's...
