SYNOPSIS: When university researcher Ayame Himuro confesses to fellow researcher Shinya Yukimura that she’s in love with him, it sets off an interesting debate. Being the kind of students that they are, Yukimura wonders if love can be proven as a formula. Himuro’s first attempt, counting increased heartbeats and numbers of longing glances, seem promising. However, when they test those results under laboratory conditions, reenacting scenes from romantic manga, the data gets confusing. Especially after they drag in classmate Kanade Kotonoha to act as a “control,” since when she and Yukimura reenact the same scenes, much of the “physical evidence” is duplicated. Of course, that just means that they and their entire research team will just have to try harder. Is love blind? And was it blinded by science? Find out in Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It.

Imagine a world where humanity lives on enormous carrier ships. In Girls und Panzer, not only do these community ships support entire towns, they also host military-themed sports events that use tanks. Popular among high school girls, tankery, as the sport is known, claims to make young women strong, graceful, and popular with boys.

Despite this, not every girl likes tankery. Miho Nishizumi comes from a long line of famous tankery practitioners, but a traumatic event drove her to abandon the sport. She even goes as far as to transfer to Oarai High School because it has no tankery team. Unfortunately, Miho joins the student body just as they’re about to resurrect the sport. Because she’s the only girl in the entire high school with prior tankery experience, the student council forces her to join the team. Can Miho’s new friends and teammates help her overcome her traumatic past experiences and go on to win the national tankery championships?
