Girls & Panzer's Anzio OVA, Mitsubishi Campaign Outlined
posted on by Egan Loo
The Girls und Panzer stage event at the Ōarai Anglerfish Festival announced more details on next year's original video anime (OVA) project on Sunday. 12 theaters in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, and other parts of Japan will screen the OVA in next spring. Sunday's event unveiled the OVA's official title — "Kore ga Hontō no Anzio-sen Desu!" (This Is the Real Anzio Battle!) — and visual art for three new characters: Anchovy, Carpaccio, and Pepperoni. Mechanical designer Hajime Katoki is contributing to the storyboards.
The "Heartful Tank Carnival" event in April had announced that an entirely new Girls und Panzer film, as well as the OVA about the battle against Anzio Girls High School, had been green-lit.
Sunday's event also unveiled the "Mitsubishi Meets Girls und Panzer" collaboration campaign. The character Miho Nishizumi will server as an "AR 2D companion" at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show this month via a special app for Android (and eventually iOS). The anime previously collaborated with Toyota.
