New Girls und Panzer Movie PV

About 3 weeks away from the Girls und Panzer movie Japanese cinema release, and there’s a new(ish) PV out.   There’s been some production delays, but from the PV’s, this does look like it should be quite good and worth the wait.


Girls und Panzer Movie Now Scheduled for Summer 2015

Girls und Panzer movie promo

First, thanks to flaze35 for the news update. Well… at least we got a premier date announcement, but to be honest, that’s considerably later than I had expected.  According to the AnimeNewNetwork article, the movie was originally scheduled for release this year.  I guess they hit a snag somewhere along the way.  That seems to be happening somewhat frequently these days (*looks at KanColle anime*).  However, an announced opening date is better than none.  The TV anime itself ran into delays as well, and the extra time was put to good use.  I expect the same will hold true for the movie, and I’m certainly looking forward to it.

Girls und Panzer Movie Trailer Out!

Ran across this by accident:

Definitely after the Nationals since we see Miho in the upgraded Panzer IV and the Hertzer. Oarai appears to have the same number of tanks from the National finals. Looks like the Hertzer and StuG are setting up for an ambush in one scene. It also looks like at least one battle is against Gloriana (Darjeeling!) and it appears to be an actual match. We also see the scene where the still came from of Nishi Kinuyo and her Chi-Ha 97 but it’s not clear which team she belongs to. Can’t wait!

Girls und Panzer Movie Shots Previewed

Just ran across this news update.  This is the weekend that the Girls und Panzer OVA is being shown in Japanese theaters.  Along with the OVA there were teasers shown of the upcoming movie.  The full article is here on Crunchyroll.  Does anyone recognize the tank Nishi Kinuyo is commanding?     Riveted armor with an offset turret seems like early WWII.  I haven’t found any other information on what tanks Chihatan (their opponents) use or if there is a specific country they are supposed to represent.  Movie appears to be after the Nationals since they show the Anglerfish tank with it’s upgrades.

Update:  I’m guessing that the tank is a Chi-Ha Type 97.
