What is Girls und Panzer?
In the Japanese animated series Girls und Panzer, life revolves around sensha-do, a high school sport where girls battle it out using WWII-era tanks. The underdogs of the Oarai Girls High School sensha-do team are all inexperienced tankers, save for Miho Nishizumi, who comes from a long line of sensha-do experts. The 12-episode TV series follows the struggles of Nishizumi as she attempts to mold her under-equipped and unexperienced team into serious competitors in time for the national sensha-do championships.
The acclaimed series proved to be extremely popular in Japan when it was released in 2012, resulting in numerous comic spinoffs, novels, and a feature film.
Hook Yourself an Anglerfish
The Panzer IV Ankō Special is Nishizumi's tank in the series and represents its final form with spaced armor sideskirts. If you're curious, "ankō" is the Japanese word for "anglerfish."
The Ankō Special performs the same as the normal Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H in Blitz, but boasts an animation-accurate skin and voices borrowed from the TV series.
