12 Days of Christmas 2012 #11 – The Director of Girls und Panzer is a Pretty Cool Guy

Garupan2

I need to watch it.

The anime Girls und Panzer is rather bizarre in itself (I mean, cute girls and… tanks?), but never would I have thought the director would be odd himself. So odd he is a pretty cool guy.

I mean, how rare is it not for an anime director to prohibit showing panties?

Let me quote MyAnimeList:

“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.”

How awesome is not that?!

If he wanted to, he could allow the animators to show panties and maybe increase the sales… but no, that is not what Mizushima Tsutomu wants. But at the same time, he would praise the courage of the poor soul who tried to draw panties.

Is it possible to not like this director?

If you can read Japanese.

    Banning panty shots isn’t that rare – see the reasonably long list under http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MagicSkirt

    Also, there’s a bit of a bait and switch going on here as banning panty shots might lead people believe that there’s no fan service at all in Girls Und Panzer, which isn’t the case at all.

    Fun show though. 🙂

      But you don’t really see the directors outright state it, right? ;p

      Well, there will be a beach OVA.

    The show pulls a Madoka Magica on me and now we have to wait till Spring for the final 2 episodes. CURSE YOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUU!
    Ah well, the 10 episodes we got were worth it. Happy to know a show I invested so much fake money on being one of the best this season (In my eyes) paid off.
