    The story will focus on high school girls battling in tanks.

    I think it has something to do with the number of people and the limited land mass.

      Now can someone tell me why you can’t do a one-word post (“Cool!” or “ROFL”) but you can post a blind link to You Tube?

      By the way, the video is from the show, and is reason 245,211,342 why we should sit on Japan for the rest of history.

    What’s weird is not the fact that the Japanese have a “thing” for young girls or like to mix a lot of violence with their sex – those characteristics are pretty universal. What’s weird is that they have no cultural taboo about being utterly blatant and in-your-face about it. Hence the “Japanese school girl” as iconic sex symbol in everything from relatively harmless manga to hard-core hentai to hard-core live porn.

    This series is also further illustration of how Nazi Germany won WWII – not in the military or political sense to be sure, but culturally. The Wehrmacht, the Waffen SS, the panzers, etc. are as iconic in their field as the Japanese school girl is in hers. And this new manga series unties the two. Genius!
