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.

I thought the anime was going to be more ecchi I'll admit,but the anime works pretty darn well even without the ecchi.

Oh lol, that whole scenario could easily be its own anime or manga :D


It sounds just as retarded as the main premise of Ben-To and that worked out great as well. Sign me up for this one.

Lmao, if someone draws just a 1 second shot of some random pantsu, shit will go down.

Girls und pantsu without pantsu. Wait, does this mean that all those girls are not wearing any? Great!

New episode was delayed, becouse staff was busy grinding new tanks in worls od tanks.


Joking aside - who cares? G&P is still awesome.

As far as I'm concerned, they can do whatever they want as long as they don't censor 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.

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.

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?
