There isn't much information on the movie. I mark this as an unknown trailer for future seasonal anime guides.

  • Director: Tsutomu Mizushima

It will be an original story for the movie.

Plot

For those who are new to Girls Und Panzer anime series:

In this world, Sensha-do (戦車道), the art of tank-combat, is a traditional Japanese martial art for girls. Miho, a girl who just transfered into the Ōrai Girls' Academy in Ibaraki Prefecture, has been ordered by the academy's student council chairperson to join the school team and compete in the national Sensha-do championships.

Editor's Note

It's a new thing I learned about the wiki we have in Anime Vice. We do allow live adaptations. I haven't work with those types of wiki pages.

Welcome to the last 2 weekw of anime releases in the United States! I combined two weeks for this report. The anime series I'm familiar with are Devil is a Part Timer! and Severing Crime Edge. If you love romance comedies with a bit of MacDonalds and supernatural element, Devil is a Part Timer is for you. I loved it. It was a bit short though. Severing Crime Edge is a bit dark and ecchi a bit since it involves folks trying to kill one little girl. There is a lot of loli and mature fan service in this one along with censored gore. Plus, the folks, the murderers, who go after our young heroine each has a bizarre fetish. Watch this show with caution.

I would love to hear your recommendations on these series. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

Disclaimer: I'm just promoting the official release and the publishers. I'm not selling you anything. This is to combat piracy and get fans to support the official release. All summaries are from ANN.

Notes

  • Right Stuf has Devil is a Part Timer, Severing Crime Edge, and Appleseed Alpha listed. Even though ANN has listed Dear Brother, it's not on Right Stuf's list.

Hello everyone, I'm your neighborhood wiki editor, Taka. I'm here to highlight a group of users who have taken the role of historians in our community. My background was that I was a historian in a club back in college. I was working with a new president. She was really smart and compassionate person who revive a dead club. I documented everything, all our hard work. It's strange that I'm applying the techniques I learned from her in Anime Vice during the many community projects (wiki or not) in my three (almost 4) years.

Historians are tasked with recording our people's work. It's valuable to see how our community had grew. We are leaving our mark on this community. Historians are preserving that mark. While there is fear in Anime Vice in that our community will not last forever, our memories and bonds we create with one another shall not be erase. The historians are the ones who makes the story alive. Please give these Vicers a round of applause for investing their time and efforts into recording our history.

Vicers

Kuma_from_Argentina is a veteran RPG member who has been with the site for five long years. While I don't know him really well, I do recognize him for his public outreach and promoting the RPG community during our first encounter on Foxx's community spotlight. He started the RPG weekly news and then shift to a monthly spotlight approach. I hope to work with him and the rest of the RPG community to make sure their presence is known in the community.

The historian project he had started and worked on is the The New Viceverse Canon where he and folks record events, reboots, and significant changes in the RPG community.
SMXLR8 is a battle user and an inexperienced, young historian. His first community project was The Official CAV Thread which includes a small archive of past CAVs.
Vapovile is a young user who joined the community back in September 2013. He first joined the battle threads and quickly became a well rounded users during those chaotic times of Fall 2013. He had a community project called AV Battle Usage Project which record how many times a character used. He hope to shed light on what Anime Vice's battle community has used a lot in an effort to persuade others to use obscure characters to balance things with the data he and I had gathered for 3 months. However, our project ended due to school and other obligations. The poll wasn't used often. We figured not much people had not used our data much.
In 2010, I was a wiki editor who was promoted to a wiki mod on September 12, 2013. Before I was a mod, I started several recognition blogs and wiki archive threads to highlight our wiki editors. I worked with large and small groups over the years. I cherished our work. I kept working in this community ever since then.

Here are my works. I don't have everything listed.

Thank you everyone.
