Isn't Hippo team popular so that was why I was confused by their absents.
Also I don't like mallard team (or at least not as much as the rest of Ooarai) so that is why I didn't mention them.

Yeah, this.
I mean, Mallard Team can have some funny scenes from time to time, but Hippo Team was there from the beginning. Also, coolest tank of their school, and coolest looking "paint scheme" from the first episodes.
I think they deserved to be in the PV at least as much as the first years and the volleyball girls. Unless they have some special reason to leave them out.


Well, popularity has nothing to do with being included in a trailer.

Since we're talking about teaser trailer here. The first teaser for the GuP movie doesn't include the Hippo team either.

Maybe Erwin was possibly saying bad things about the pres and had to be silenced, Caesar probably got betrayed and stabbed 23 times including by her best friend Capprichino, Saemonza was last seen defending a castle to her dying breath and Oryou probaby died from liver failure after recently becoming an alcholic.

Wowow, that's a bit too ominous. haha
Guess that's what happens when you give yourself a new name after some historical figure. =P

Well, it's not just Hippo team that wasn't shown but Mallard team as well so they aren't the only group left out in the short trailer. Besides it's just a teaser trailer, a proper trailer will come out when it's ready. This short trailer was shown just to let the fans know that new GuP anime content is coming even if it's "ending".

The trailer is nice and all but the question is
Why weren't Hippo Team in the video?
All we saw of them was Erwin's jacket in the corner.

Well, guess that means I'll be needing a rewatch before this airs.
What about thar girl at 0:08, handing out newspapers, do you remember her from anywhere?


I think it's just a new side/background character that we may or may not get to know once this comes out. Haven't seen her in the previous TV series, OVA or movie.

Thanks for summing it up.
The reporters are new characters (I think), so I don't know if this "new chaos" has anything to do with them either.


The reporter character had appeared already in the series during episode 10. Her name is Taiga Ou.

Also the translation of the text on the PV was provided by ANN

Text: Girls & Panzer isn't over yet!
Text: The outbreak of a large disturbance that shocks the Ōarai Girls High School!!
Text: Girls & Panzer Saishūshō work decided!!
Text: How will the new student council move?
Text: This is the final battle!

I'm not sure if it's related to what you mentioned because I don't watch this anime series, but it's basically about new chaos that the main group needs to take care.

Announcement PV


Quite a lot of focus on those reporter/journalist characters. I wonder if they're gonna be important or if it's just the way they decided to make the PV.

Any relevant information in the text?

After how insane;y well the film did, they would have to be insane not to announce this. The only surprise is that it wasn't sooner.

If they can finish this on a high note, I'd be very happy.

Who knew cute girls doing tank battles could be so entertaining? :)
