Synopsis

Imagine a world where humanity lives on enormous carrier ships. In Girls und Panzer, not only do these community ships support entire towns, they also host military-themed sports events that use tanks. Popular among high school girls, tankery, as the sport is known, claims to make young women strong, graceful, and popular with boys.

Despite this, not every girl likes tankery. Miho Nishizumi comes from a long line of famous tankery practitioners, but a traumatic event drove her to abandon the sport. She even goes as far as to transfer to Oarai High School because it has no tankery team. Unfortunately, Miho joins the student body just as they're about to resurrect the sport. Because she's the only girl in the entire high school with prior tankery experience, the student council forces her to join the team. Can Miho's new friends and teammates help her overcome her traumatic past experiences and go on to win the national tankery championships?

  • Episodes: TBA
  • Aired: April 2016 - Present

Synopsis

Live in the ocean, protect the ocean, transcend the ocean - that’s what it means to be a Blue Mermaid!
Due to a shift in the tectonic plates around 100 years ago, much of Japan’s land was lost to flooding. In order to protect the remaining soil, cities were built one after the other across the water’s surface. Following the increase of water routes connecting these seaborne cities, much manpower became necessary in order to keep the waters safe.

Following this, women too began to advance into the ocean as professional protectors of the water. These “Blue Mermaids” soon became idolised by girls the nation over.

It is in this age that childhood friends Akeno Misaki and Moeka China, and their other friends who are aiming to become Blue Mermaids, enter Yokosuka Ocean Academy and start their bright and fun-filled (?) high school life!

Synopsis

30 men and women come together to go on a bus tour. However, this isn’t any ordinary bus tour. This bus tour is headed to a mysterious, unconfirmed village named Nanakimura. Purportedly, Nanakimura, if found, is a utopia and a place that is unlike anywhere else in the world. Well… at least that is what the rumors say.
Of these 30, some have lost faith in the current world, some want to erase themselves from their tedious existences, and finally, some just want to start their lives over again. So, they take their expectations in one hand and their distressed hearts in the other with them deep into the mountains in search of Nanakimura. However, when they arrive, they are greeted with a village, but at the same time, it’s not a village. It’s an area that stinks of abandonment and barely any traces of human life.

What is this reality that has appeared in Nanakimura that the 30 people have stumbled upon??
