First, thanks to flaze35 for the news update. 😀 It’s been a long wait, but things are finally coming together for the Girls und Panzer movie which is now set for release in Japanese theaters on November 21 this year (no date set for BD/DVD release though :/). Rather than a simple rematch between Oarai and St. Gloriana, this latest PV seems to suggest that the text line of “The biggest tank battle ever!!” isn’t hyperbole (I assume “biggest [GuP] tank battle ever”, not WWII of course – we won’t have another Battle of Kursk here with thousands of tanks). Not just Oarai and St. Gloriana, but Pravda and a new team – Chi-Ha Tan Academy, appear to be taking part as well.
So at least four schools are involved in one match(!), with the match format quite possibly deviating from the 1-on-1 matches we’ve seen before. Rather than 1 vs. 1, maybe schools are paired up in teams or even a battle royal! It’s impossible to say for sure the exact structure, but I can say that this latest PV did its job. The delays for new GuP material have been frustrating, but I’m definitely looking forward the GuP movie more than ever. 😀
