After previously teasing a 2023 premiere, we now have a concrete Japanese premiere date for the next installment of the six-part Girls und Panzer das Finale anime film series. Girls und Panzer das Finale Part 4 is now set to open in Japan on October 6.
It’s been a long road for the film series, which saw its first part have its limited theatrical opening in Japan back in December 2017, followed by the second in June 2019 and the third in March 2021.
Tsutomu Mizushima directs the latest entry in the series, with Actas on animation production. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the full Girls und Panzer Das Finale series and has released the first three on home video, with parts 1 and 2 available to stream on HIDIVE.
Part 1 synopsis:
The tank-crazy girls of Oorai Academy are shell-shocked when Momo’s preoccupation with locating new tanks for the upcoming Caterpillar Tread Cup causes her to fail her college entrance exams! However, the diabolical minds of Miho and the Oorai teams concoct an uber-crafty battle plan to give Momo a second chance at her exams. The catch? They’ll have to promote Momo to the position of overall commander while Miho steps down to vice commander! With Oorai’s greatest challenge coming up, it’s a terrible time to break in a new general, and that’s only the first bombshell in a new series of barrages. Can duplicitous rivals, ridiculous contests and a maid-mad gang of juvenile delinquents stop Oorai’s mechanized path to victory? Gears grind, bombs burst, and all obstacles are plowed under as the mayhem ensues in GIRLS UND PANZER DAS FINALE – PART 1!
