Sensha-do fans, get ready to catch the real Anzio Battle!
Earlier today, Section23 Films announced that Sentai Filmworks will release Girls und Panzer: This is the Real Anzio Battle! (Girls und Panzer: Kore ga Hontō no Anzio-sen Desu!) in North America. The OVA will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD on March 21, 2017.
Sentai Filmworks is producing a dub for the feature.
Girls und Panzer: This is the Real Anzio Battle! is a one-episode spinoff from the original Girls Und Panzer TV series. The 37-minute title was helmed by series director Tsutomu Mizushima (Blood-C, Shirobako) at Actas, with Isao Sugimoto (Bakuon!!, Sketchbook ~full color’S~) providing character designs. Reiko Yoshida (Bakuman, K-On!) returned to take charge of series composition.
The OVA hit Japanese retailers on July 25, 2014, following a theatrical run.
Sentai Filmworks currently holds the domestic rights to Girls und Panzer. The company recently partnered with Eleven Arts, who screened the dubbed version of Girls und Panzer der Film in North American theaters last weekend.
Sentai describes Girls und Panzer: This is the Real Anzio Battle! as:
A piece of spaghetti or a military unit, George S. Patton famously said, “can only be led from the front end.” However, once the heat of battle has cooled and the fog of war turns as thick as minestrone, determining which end was front and who pulled on what can be difficult. Therefore, for the enthusiasts who’ve puzzled over the epic tank battle between the girls of Oorai Girls’ Academy and their Italian-themed rivals from Anzio High School, we present these classified videos for your eyes-only! Miho and Team Oorai will have their hands full with the impulsive attacks of Vice-Commander Pepperoni and facing the raw fury of Vice-Commander Carpaccio… but the real question is whether they can hold off Anchovy’s ultra-secret secret weapons! Will they persevere? Or will their opponents end up saying “tank” you very much… for the victory in GIRLS UND PANZER: THE REAL ANZIO BATTLE!
