Mai Fuchigami explained her first impression of Grils Panzer the Stage on 2017


Q: What was your impression of reading the script of the first chapter “Final Chapter”?


Mai Fuchigami(渕上 舞):

“I felt it was fun the first time.

That is because scenes of television animation that was depicted as evolving stories such as school disturbance and stories of Nishisumi family became serious and that “(Girls & Panzer) theater version” was a battle – dominated scene I think that it was because it was a lot.

As I got used to it, the first story of the “final chapter” thinks that everyday scenes are amazingly attractive.

The relationship between people and people, communication between characters was the main impression than the relationship with tanks.

I learned the feeling that I came back to the comfortable place the first time of TV animation.

I enjoyed it with healing and calm feelings.”
