The next project from Squid Girl and Another's director Tsutomu Mizushima has been announced. For his first work not based on a pre-existing manga or novel, Mizushima is directing Girls und Panzer, a story about high school girls driving real-life tanks, which I suppose is totally explained by the title.
I was getting a bit of a Strike Witches vibe from the trailer, and apparently there is some connection. Takaaki Suzuki is involved with Girls und Panzer, having previously served as military history advisor for Strike Witches and this season's Upotte!!
Of course, there will also be a tie-in manga to promote the anime. Mangaka Ryouichi Saitaniya's take on it will start serialization in Comic Flapper in June. Who's up for watching cute girls drive giant tanks around?
