According to the Tweet of director Mizushima Tsutomu, he noticed that some animators of Girls und Panzer have been struggling to show pantsu of the characters although Mizushima had promised that there would be no pantsu shown in the anime. He said he will enforce the discipline of the staff to suppress the "resistance", but he would like to praise the courage if someone manages to insert pantsu scenes.

According to Ibakaki Newspaper, Girls und Panzer has already contributed a lot to the tourism of the model town Oarai. The character tickets released by the local railway have been flying off the shelves and a Japanese-style Hotel, which Matilda crashed into in episode 4, got many reservations by the fans. Ibaraki Prefecture has been publicizing the anime on the top page of the official website.

Oh god this is so silly.

Panties or not, this is definitely tied for my favorite show of the season. Already got the first BD ordered.

It's pretty obvious from the first five episodes that there's no panty shots in this anime. The closest you'll get is bikinis.

That's good. It focuses on the more important aspects of the show, Tank and tank battles.

Pantsu shots are serious business.

You are absolutely right.

I used to believe all the people who act like stuff like this is something new, until I started watching Dragon Ball, which is completely filled with panty shots and fanservice, and that's almost 30 years old now. Now it seems rather obvious that people just like making up things to cry about.

I like his attitude. 'I'll enforce discipline but praise the courage if someone succeeds.'
I'll be on the lookout ^^.

That's good to hear. :) The more reason to not taint the anime with panty shots.

Awww :( Well we still have Ebiten this season for our fan service.

Personally though it's more of what the panties represent than actually seeing them. They represent freedom and happiness :P Censorship just represents oppression. I have never felt displeased with an anime with fanservice in it, no matter how crappy its story may be.

Well, back to my closet pervert closet.

I agree with the omission of panties. They can't have such smut in a classy show like Girls und Panzer.
Ok™

While the term "fanservice" is often used to denote overt sexual displays, in its original broader meaning fanservice can be applied to anything that's made as an over appeal to the fan. To me, the details and work they put into the tanks is already enough fanservice for me.

You could say I prefer tankservice.

Remember, Panzer is Life, Life is Panzer :)

I'd laugh if this was the reason for the delay in episode 6. Gotta get those panty shots out of there!

If there's pantsu, good! If there's not, that's good also. Either way, I will still love the series.

Ok, how about an onsen ep? Or maybe they could slip in some tank cleaning scenes like they did at the beginning, only this time add some slow motion!

So, you guys remember when their tanks get taken out and that white flap shoots up. Why not just slip in a pantsu shot of what should be that flag but is really a pantsu!

Dog Days never had this problem.

This is a similar type of anime, so I don't really care if ecchi is added or not.

Girls und Pantsu. Oops, I mean Girls und Panzer. Gotta love BDs. Fanservice is suppose to be 'extra' for the viewers. BDs give extras not found on air. No pantsu shots? Bikinis not pantsu, eh?

and the amazing thing is that this is projected to sell well even without pantsu. No, I mean, I know its happened before with other shows but just thought I'd say it.

It doesn't need pantsu, only panzer. But regardless of whether or not it has panty shots, panzer vor.

Definetley the show of the season, Japan agrees so don't bother them about it.
