Welcome to the Seventeenth #Anitwitwatches!
Wait what happened to season 16?!? Don’t panic, this wasn’t a mistake. Along with season 15’s watch, Fate/Stay Night, we also watched the Unlimited Blade Works film. You can find the article covering both watches here, along with my plans to continue the Fate journey separately on my own time (meaning more content for you). This time around we had a really awesome curated list of choices for the watch, and while all of them are shows I’d eventually like to watch as part of this program, I shall reveal to you our winner: Girls und Panzer!
What is #Anitwitwatches?
This is a weekly community event meant to bring folks together to revisit old favorites and discover new shows. It’s meant to be something you can get as involved in as you want, there is no pressure to participate every week or every watch, but we’d love to have you to share in the experience and discuss the shows we are watching all the same!
I was inspired to do this after seeing the “rewatches” that people do over at Reddit in the r/anime sub. Since I interact with a lot of you guys on Twitter, I thought it would be the perfect place to do something similar! That said, even if you do not have a Twitter you can still join in by posting any content via WordPress, YouTube, or whatever suits your fancy. If you do, be sure to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can share your wonderful creations!
For everyone else, simply watch the episodes for the week based on the schedule below. Make sure to use the hashtag, #anitwitwatches when you do, and that’s it! Discuss with the other folks participating, create content, and generally just have a fun time!
This next show was chosen based on YOUR votes, so let’s get to the watch schedule.
Girls und Panzer Schedule
As always, we have a short break before returning. The main reason for this is to give everybody a little time off between watches. This time around I need the extra week for something else too, provided everything goes to plan, so I can share something else unrelated that’s been in the works. Anyway, that means we’ll be starting on Feb. 14, 2022.
If you have not done so, you can see where you can watch Girls und Panzer for free, and legally, by using justwatch.com. Unfortunately, I cannot realistically check all regions but I aimed to make this as accessible as possible. That said, I won’t stop you from doing what you need to in order to participate. The more the merrier!
Here are the dates (all Mondays) and the episodes for each, please keep in mind that Monday’s are the main days for discussion but you basically have the whole week to watch (if you need to miss a week or whatever, that’s all good too):
We’ve had some pretty long watches lately, so I made sure to keep this one on the shorter side. As a result, we only have 6 weeks for this series. I hope you’re excited to watch this one and I look forward to all the excellent discussion!
