    For surfaces embedded in a three-dimensional Euclidean space, consider a functional consisting of two terms: a version of the Willmore energy and an anisotropic area penalising the first component of the normal vector, the latter weighted with the factor 1/epsilon^2. The asymptotic behaviour of such functionals as epsilon tends to 0 is studied in this paper. The results include a lower and an upper bound on the minimal energy subject to suitable constraints. Moreover, for embedded spheres, a compactness result is obtained under appropriate energy bounds.
