Nice artwork, but the woman is a dead girl. She's standing behind the breech.

I assume the proper method is to put as little of your body behind the breech as possible?

The breech/recoil guard is on the other side of her and the recoil of the gun would crush her dead.

Theirs video of a soldier loading a smaller caliber at gun behind the breech.  He slams it in, it goes off, and the gun knocks him off his feet and back a good ten feet.  That was in the open, imagine what it's going to do to you with a thick slab of metal a few inches behind you.  It might not kill you, you'll wish it did

 

https://youtu.be/zVoGJb6Dv98 here's the video

probably not many. Although  the hate against GuP probably stems more from a kneejerk "Anime is bad" reaction than vs the show itself.

Personally I try not to think anything about it.  Then this keeps cropping up reminding me of the silliness that is this mess.  If you like it, then that is your problem, not mine.  You asked and I told you.

Pretty much. More preconceived misconceptions about an animated medium.

 

Still there are others that think having a dog be a crewman is so much more believable than having a crew that is actually human (even if they are highschool girls).

while i appreciate your honesty i am curious what shows you have watched?  not all the shows will appeal to different people.  there are some excellent award winning shows and movies out there just depends on your tastes

Some of it dislike it because while the dog crewman was weird, the dog was more just there for morale and didn't actually do anything in the tank, while in Girls und Panzer, you have to shut down every ounce of your brain. From the little girls piloting the tanks, to the fact the tanks get penetrated numerous times, and not once does any of the crew get splattered by a shell, the speed of their repairs, the fact they can drift tanks in ways that would absolutely destroy their suspension, tracks, and transmissions. Lets not even bring up the movie with the Finnish tank that just completely [edited]on reality, or tanks taking near direct hits from gustav, an 800mm artillery piece.

 

Many people dislike it because it asks you to suspend your disbelief far too much. Others dislike it just because they don't like the animated medium on the whole; still others dislike it because of misconceptions, others dont like the art, others don't like the characters, others hate the way they treat the tanks. In short, for any reason you could give to like this particular anime, theirs at least an equal counterpart for not liking it.

For every reaction, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

And WoT doesn't require massive amounts of suspension of disbelief? :P

Yes and No; Wot's suspension only exists in that you have to suspend that your crapgets damaged and repaired, you could argue the whole thing is a simulator battle field and thus why things are repaired so quick. girls und panzer doesn't even have that going for it, and goes even beyond the WG model of "Nah, lets just do this".
