evaluation

In the alternative reality, after the end of the Second World War, the tank sport became very popular all over the world - combat battles for sporting rules on the tanks left after the war. Basically, this sport is engaged in girls, high school students and students. Thanks to high school student Miho Nisizumi and her military friends, the Oaray Women's School, which in the past did not shine in tank training, won the school championship and became famous throughout Japan. Now the girls are fighting for the winter cup, and they have new opponents. The first of these is a school that fights on French combat vehicles.

One of the roles was voiced by the ever-living Russian actress Yevgenia Davidyuk in Japan. Her heroine speaks both Russian and Japanese

In Russia, "Girls and tanks" go on lease with a thorough introductory lecture performed by Ilya Lagutenko from Mumiy Troll. Nevertheless, we can not not begin the story about the cartoon with a historical excursion, because otherwise it will not explain what is waiting for you in the cinema and how we evaluate this tape.

"Girls and tanks" - this is initially released in 2012-2013 years 12-serial animated series of the Japanese studio Actas. The ironic sports show about mimic heroines and clanking combat vehicles was liked by many spectators in Japan and abroad, but did not receive a television sequel.

Creators of the game World of Tanks in 2013 launched a joint advertising project with the authors of "Girls and Tanks" to promote their game on the Eastern market

Instead, 2015 released the feature film "Girls and Cannons in Cinema", and now Actas is working on six medium-sized films, which in duration will correspond to 12 television series. In fact, this is the second season of "Girls and Tanks", but shown in the movie, not on TV. Obviously, to squeeze more money from the fans of the cycle. Thus, the cartoon, which goes to the Russian hire under the name "Girls and tanks", is the first of six series of the new series. In Japan, it was released last December. The premiere of the second series has not yet been scheduled.

What does this mean for spectators who do not follow Miho's exploits and her classmates? That the movie waiting for them 47 minutes of anime with the participation of a crowd of heroines, which are very easy to get confused. The Oaray team now has nine tanks, each tank has a crew of several girls, and they are all included in the action. Understand what is happening without viewing the previous series or studying Wikipedia is hardly possible, and even with a decent knowledge of the cycle in the cinema it is worth to go with a sign "Who's Who." As already mentioned, this is a spectacle for fans, not for casual spectators.

Also do not count on a story with a beginning and an end. As in the television series, in the new cycle of battle, the long, stretched into several series. So the screen time in the first episode suffices only to present the extravagant team of the new, ninth school of the Oaray school (this is the British Mark IV of World War I), introduce new opponents of the heroines, depict the first part of the battle ... And then, in the most interesting the moment, the title "Continuation follows." And no hope that the end of the battle can be seen in a week or a month. This is not a girl, it's a dynamo!

When you go to the cinema to continue the television series, you expect that the spectacle will be larger, more spectacular, more beautiful than on a small screen. However, the new "Girls and tanks" do not offer anything like that. This is not a movie show, but the second television season, shown in the cinema, with an appropriate level of narration and image. And if in the first season there was an emotional "clue" (turning Miho from a closed modest leader and commander, as well as her rivalry with the elder sister), then the new series are battles for the sake of battles, with a purely formal pretext. Tactical finds of heroines are also not impressive, and it seems that the show did not advance, but took a couple of steps back in comparison with the spectacle that pleased the audience six years ago. The only advantage of the new series is that there are more jokes and gags in the ironic and absurd style. However, it is not a fact that "Girls and tanks" benefit from this, because the series is based not on a comedy, but on a dramatic military sports show. No matter how funny the heroines seemed.

However, this is still a unique fetish cycle, in which small painted Japanese lead large old tanks. So if you can not live without Miho's new adventures and if your heart beats harder when you see Pz. IV, Mark IV or ARL 44, then you can go to "Girls and tanks". But do not expect that it will be something like "Girls and tanks at the cinema." You are waiting for a picture that is more suitable for home viewing. And it's better after the new cycle is finished and released.

Since 5 April at the cinema.
