** In the best example of this trope yet, [[spoiler: The Panzer IV's final power slide against Maho's Tiger in the final episode. The Panzer IV drifts so hard it breaks its tracks in the process!]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoxSskctWMg Now]] with [[{{InitialD}} Eurobeat!]]

** As shown in the Movie, Chi-Ha-Tan Academy is [[SelfDepreciation almost excessively Japanese]]. Everyone [[PhenotypeStereotype has black hair]], their ''entire'' playbook is basically "Charge forwards", and their captain, Nishi's mannerisms are exceeding formal.

Miho Nishizumi is a teenage scion of a legendary Sensha-do family who, due to a past trauma, has become reluctant to pilot tanks and transferred away from Kuromorimine Women's College, where her family has made a name, into Ōarai Girls' Academy, a little-known school ''ship'' docked in a little town of the same name, which has not fielded a Sensha-do team for the last twenty years. As fate would have it, the Student Council decided to take advantage of the buildup to the upcoming National Sensha-do Championships to revive their Sensha-do elective... and push Miho into leading Ōarai's first Sensha-do class in two decades, whether she likes it or not.

Fortunately, she has new friends who are more than willing to help -- boy-chasing Saori Takebe, gentle Hana Isuzu, tank fangirl Yukari Akiyama, and lethargic Mako Reizei. Together with them and a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters crew of over two dozen girls]] -- including the Student Council, members of the recently-disbanded volleyball team, history buffs, and a group of freshmen -- Miho will have to learn to love her sport once more and lead Ōarai to victory -- because, as she will eventually learn, there's more at stake than just the school's prestige or her reputation.
