About 「GIRLS und PANZER」
A TV animation broadcast in October 2012.
In the GIRLS und PANZER world, Panzerfahren tank warfare, flower arrangement, and tea ceremony are prized traits of a Yamato Nadeshiko (ideal Japanese woman).
The story tells of how Miho Nishizumi and the other Oarai Girls’ Academy students battle to win the National tournament to save their school from being closed down.
The 2014 OVA tells of the second National tournament which the TV animation did not delve into in detail.
In a movie released in November 2015, set after the National tournament, the Oarai Girls’ Academy is again threatened with closure, and they go up against the All-Stars University Team to save their school.
In December 2017, 『GIRLS und PANZER das FINALE』 Part 1 was released.
Part 2 will be released on 15 June 2019 in Japan.
