During the annual Angler Fish Festival held in the small coastal town of Oarai in Ibaraki prefecture, it was announced that Girls und Panzer, the very anime which made Oarai a tourist destination for anime pilgrims, will be holding a collaboration with auto makers Mitsubishi.
Girls und Panzer’s main heroine, Miho Nishizumi will be serving as a “2D AR companion” for the upcoming 43rd Tokyo Motor Show later this month. As a “2D AR companion”, she will appear as a special Android app and will act as a guide through Mitsubishi’s car exhibits. An app for the iOS is also planned.
She, as well as the other Angler Fish team members, Saori, Hina, Mako and Yukari are all seen in a poster along with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
The 43rd Tokyo Motor Show will kick-off on November 22, 2013 and will end on December 1, 2013.
Tourists and Garupan fans from all over the world were expected to flock Oarai for the Angler Fish Festival and flyers have been distributed across the small town to promote both the app, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and the car show.
