Excellent follow-up to the series
Reference the series for good reviews of the movie; they're pretty much identical. The movie is not chunks of the series patched together, but rather a brand new plot... if the same plot can be considered new. It's still high school girls in heavy-competition tank battles, played to the gills for humor. Better than might be expected at first glance. Once one gets the idea that this is intentionally ridiculous it's a fun ride.
It's good to see the 12-episode series first, but it isn't essential to enjoying the movie. The series will fill in the concept of "Tankery" and why it exists. The movie hits the ground running and takes it for granted the audience will follow along. That's not hard to do in this romp.
I understand there are different tastes, but anyone giving this a low review just. doesn't. get. it. This film is a lot of absurd fun.
