Worked for Space Battleship Yamato 2199 as well. Also the approach they are going for with Space Battleship Yamato 2202.

Wait... 6 OVA for 40 minutes...

So like Hellsing Ultimate...

And that means 2 OVA's per year...

Why was it so hard to do 26 episode anime series? K-ON did it and they did just fine...

Bigger budget and more time to animate tank battles is the likely issue.

Actas have problems doing two 1-cour series this year without schedule slips and they had similar problems with GuP. Making it 6 OVAs instead of a TV series is actually logical solution.

6x40 is about the same amount of anime as 12x20, you know... actually a bit longer because you only have the OP and ED 6 times instead of 12 in those minutes. We just didn't get 2-cours, that's all.

They likely also get a larger budget.

I just hope they will be able to resolve the story in 12 episode time-slot they have. I would hate for GuP to suffer the fate of Mass Effect.

Also, doing it as OVA means they can stretch the series to several years instead of finishing it for 12 weeks...

It's going to cost about $300 to import all 6 OVAs when they come out on BD. Good thing I have a very long time to save up for it.

300 USD is still much more reasonably priced than flying over to Japan to check the film out on six separate occasions.

The winter end of a series. so, MEXT decides to close the school down anyway at the end of the school year? Or does the carrier's hull start to give out? Or will they go some other route (maybe some world building. Like why are there huge school carriers to begin with and why do there seem to be a lot of abandoned areas for the girls to have tank battles in across Japan?) Training girls to be tank drivers at an early age as a school activity and a major international sport (enough were there are lots of tank themed items around the country, even if one is that abandoned theme park) would seem like there should be something more to this.

Any ideas, since we have little to go on right now aside that this is not the Internationals, since those are still a few years away, and this is still Miho's second year as they are preparing for a new student council and its winter.

From what I gather reading around, Final Chapter will not involve Ōarai closing or MEXT backing down on their word. Also, it looks like Hana, Saori and Yukari are a part of the student council in Final Chapter. Saori is in a secretary role, probably in Momo's role, while Hana has become the president, in place of Anzu. While not shown, I'm betting that Yukari is the president.

The real questions will revolve around what tanks are going to be used.

Not to mention who the opponents and what the stakes are.

Effectively another 12-episode season, and with how the first season's battles were effectively two episodes each anyway, this should work out perfectly!

Interesting to see they've already picked the new student council members. I had thought that the winter setting would make for a convenient excuse to ignore that the seniors are leaving at the end of the year (March), but I guess they'll touch on that anyway.

As long as we get a happy, heartwarming ending as is always expected from the series, I'll be happy with whatever we get.

A new double-feature trailer is out for Final Chapter, showcasing some new characters, and also an upcoming Girls und Panzer game. Both are exciting, I'm hoping for a PC version of the game (it's PS4-only right now), since I've longed to play a proper Girls und Panzer game with a campaign (and World of Tanks just doesn't cut it considering how competitive people were about it).
