Chiyo Shimada




"A rematch would be good, but without stakes this time..."
―Chiyo to Shiho

Chiyo Shimada is one of the supporting characters in Girls und Panzer der Film. She is the current head of the Shimada Style and the mother of Alice Shimada.

Profile

Chiyo is a member of the Japanese Sensha-dō Federation.

Appearance

Chiyo is a beautiful pale-skinned woman with long, light brown hair tied with a black ribbon, and hazel eyes. Her appearance is a lot less cold and her manner more friendly than Shiho Nishizumi. Physically she bears a striking resemblance to her daughter, Alice.

Personality

Chiyo is a very calm and refined woman who seems very intelligent. She is dedicated to being the best, and to her family's sensha-dō style being recognized as superior to all others, as proven in public demonstrations: when she calls Alice just before the match against the University All-Stars Team, she tells her to destroy the name of Nishizumi style. This is despite Ooarai not necessarily practicing the Nishizumi Style of sensha-dō, but perhaps because Shiho Nishizumi, her longtime rival, has become Ooarai's advocate, and because the team is led by Shiho's younger daughter, Miho Nishizumi. However, this is distinctly a matter of professional rivalry, and despite this behavior it is clear she's not a bad person —as, at the conclusion of the Ooarai vs. University All-Stars match, she and Shiho tacitly acknowledge that the competition may have become too personal. Further, she evidently loves her daughter deeply, as she honors Alice's plea to sponsor the Boko Museum despite her daughter's losing the match. She tends, however, to have trouble accepting Alice is growing up.

Trivia

  • The name Chiyo means "thousand" (千) (chi) and "generation" (代) or "world" (世) (yo).
  • Chiyo's surname Shimada means "island" (島) (shima) and "field, rice paddy" (田) (da).
  • The Shimada family is mentioned by Anchovy right before the match against Ooarai Girls Academy on the Anzio OVA.
  • Nicknamed Chiyokichi by Shiho in MLLSD. It's implied that they've been friends for a long time.
