posted on 2012-12-15 13:55 EST
The official Twitter account and website for the Girls und Panzer television anime confirmed on Saturday that the episode on December 24 has been delayed. Instead of episode 11, a special reintroduction episode "10.5" ("Shōkai Shimasu 2!") will air. Episode 10.5 will also be included in volume 5 of the Girls und Panzer Blu-ray and DVD release.
As a result of this delay, another episode will be delayed beyond the scheduled run of the anime this year. The staff tentatively plans to air the remaining episodes on participating channels in March as a television special. The 12th and final episode was already pushed back due to the delayed airing of episode 6.
Director Tsutomu Mizushima personally apologized for the delays, and noted that episode 10, like the previous episodes, will have improvements and animation corrections in the Blu-ray/DVD releases. He added that staff will ensure the utmost quality in episodes 11 and 12. He concluded by saying that he personally thinks that the end of episode 12 is not the end of the whole story.
