If it'll push sales in Japan, why not?

the theme song lyrics are hilarious "I just feel my wind, I just feel my shine!"

If anyone "felt" my wind it would burn a hole right through them!!

Otaku-military trend in Japan has already transferred to war ships... Kantai Collection (Kankore).
I don't know whether Girls und Pantzer will regain its popularity.

Nope, Girls & Panzer remains an Otaku favourite. Try walking into any major Anime event in Japan without noticing it. In fact I just walked out of Wonder Festival and couldn't help but notice it had larger floor space dedicated to it than any company/publisher and this is just one Anime.

I know.
I suppose the projects you mentioned started when G&P had top popularity (early 2013).
Kankore fever has just begun.

lol they will put school girls in those tanks and repaint them with nice cute colors...

They will put school girls in those _____

That statement probably describes over 50% of all anime made.
Hicken  +   636d ago
Only they don't repaint them. G&P takes the tanks pretty seriously, to be honest.

In a previous life, I was a huge war-head: I loved watching and reading up on old battles and military weapons, tanks included. That was back before I really cared for anime.

G&P kinda rekindles some of that for me.

But didn't they repaint them at the beginning of G&P with flags and all. Lol

Girls und Panzer needs a second season. We need more tank related animes.
