The official website for the six-part Girls und Panzer das Finale film series began streaming a video on Thursday to reveal that the second film's Blu-ray Disc and DVD release will include a new original video animation (OVA) titled "Taiyaki War!" The release will ship in Japan on February 27.
The film opened in Japan on June 15. The movie sold 118,000 tickets to earn 145 million yen (about US$1.33 million) and rank #4 in its opening weekend.
The film depicts the finale of the battle between Ooarai Girls Academy and BC Freedom High School, and will also show the battles for Kuromorimine Girls Academy, Pravda Girls High School, and other schools.
The first Girls und Panzer das Finale film opened in Japan in 59 theaters in December 2017. The film features new characters from BC Freedom High School as they engage in a winter battle.
The Finale anime project will also have immersive 4DX and MX4D screenings, after the project's second episode ends its initial run of regular screenings. Each of the immersive screenings will combine two episodes; the first ones will combine the first and second episodes. The next set of immersive screenings will combine the third and fourth episodes, and the last set will combine the fifth and sixth episodes.
