In commemoration of the Girls und Panzer movie releasing in Japan in November, a special promotional event was held on August 29. At the "Girls und Panzer Panzer IV Landing" held at Belle Salle Akihabara, a group of girls cosplaying the main characters of the show—known collectively as the Anglerfish Team—appeared with an exact replica of a historical tank used both during World War II and in the anime itself. The "Panzer IV Ausf. H" was unveiled to an immediately awestruck crowd. The tank replica was manufactured by Weta Workshop Limited, located in New Zealand and famously known for producing sets, costumes, and monsters for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
