Toyota Unveils Official Girls & Panzer Itasha Car

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Maker's Amlux auto salon holds anime tie-in campaign in Tokyo

Automobile museum Toyota Auto Salon Amlux began a Girls und Panzer-themed event on Saturday. The event runs until February 11 with activities such as a stamp rally, a bingo tournament, 2000GT plastic model bulding, a Gran Turismo game simulation competition, a safety driving test via a simulator — and a Toyota itasha car decorated with an official Girls und Panzer decals:

The Girls und Panzer anime began airing in Japan in October, and a Jōyō Shimbun newspaper article that reported that a sequel is being tentatively planned, in addition to the upcoming episodes #11 and #12, which are scheduled for March 2013. However, publicity representative Yūji Hirooka denied any plans of a second season. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime, while Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series for home video and digital release in North America.

Update: Typo fixed. Thanks, Chagen46.
