Shiho would truly be the ideal wife if she was less of a hardass bitch towards her children

She's just playing the long game. Be hard on the kids, get one to branch out, dominate two schools with variation of Nishizumi style, ensuring dominance for her family for a few generations.

Ruthless and single-minded can co-exist just fine with being a reasonable and caring parent I can understand where her aims and approaches come from. With this being said, I would love to see her more compassionate side: maybe the upcoming Final Chapter could do this.

The man that was able to penetrate that armor deserves some respect.

But we're yet to see him. I wouldn't be surprised if he works for International Senshado Federation..

BTW, if Shiho's nickname is Shiporin, Miho is Miporin, then Maho is Maporin..??

Actually, here's something I'm wondering: it makes that Yukari becomes Yukari, and Kaori becomes Kaorin with respect to how endearing nicknames work, but how does Miho become Miporin? I like it, as it sounds adorable, but porins are also a class of beta-barrel proteins that cross cell membranes

Here's a bit of news:

Bandai Visual Acquires Girls & Panzer Anime Studio Actas

Quote:
Bandai Visual announced on Monday that it has acquired the Actas animation studio. Bandai Visual made a complete acquisition of Actas' stock last Friday, September 1, and Actas is now a subsidiary of Bandai Visual. Actas board members named Bandai Visual producer Jun Yukawa as acting director of Actas in a board meeting last Friday.

Bandai Visual stated in the announcement that the acquisition was for the purpose of cultivating the Girls & Panzer intellectual property, and for the creation of other intellectual property.
It looks like Bandai scooped up Actas because of GuP. Pretty interesting.

More specifically, Bandai want more GuP and has the IP rights to do so, but they are worried about Actas not being stable enough. They want to fund more series but decided it is important that Actas doesn't go bankrupt in the mean time.

Seriously, there had been dangerous signs that Actas couldn't support itself.

It just makes sense to buy them out. It is basically a rescue to make sure the existing talent doesn't get scattered.

Actas might not be stable, but Girls und Panzer seems to print money.

Interesting...I've heard that Actas was pretty small and underfunded (IIRC, wasn't that why there was that month long delay between episodes 10 and 11-12 when it aired?), but to hear a big studio like Bandai Visual acquired them boosts hope that there could be more GuP stuff in the future. I only hope that, if it does happen, it remains quality stuff and not merely average to "meh" stuff with the title slapped on for quick money.

It would also be nice to get more games, and ones that could hopefully be localized.

Bandai's current strategy is to release PS4 games in Asia with English subs. The idea is that people who want to buy it internationally can do so, while Bandai doesn't have to worry about costs of distributing in the West.

Ah, that's good too.
