* MeaningfulEcho: In the prologue of Paths Toward Victory, after Hiroe antagonizes Shiho, Masae scolds her

to:

* MeaningfulEcho: In the prologue of Paths Toward Victory, after Hiroe antagonizes Shiho, Masae scolds herher, but Shiho [[ArmorPiercingQuestion asks if she disagrees with Hiroe]]. When Masae finally is pushed into giving a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Shiho, Miho tries to protest, and Hiroe asks if she disagrees with Masae.


Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticAdaptation: A few changes are made to the Saki characters' backstories to accommodate tankery. For example, Kuro is in the same year as Nodoka, Shizuno and Ako so that they could hang out with each other at Harue's club; if Kuro had been a year older, she would be going to middle school out at sea. Since Arata is Kuro's classmate, she is also a year younger.

* InSpiteOfANail: In the alternate ending, [[spoiler:Teru, despite never facing Saki in the finals, still reconciles with her, having been horrified to hear about Shiho disowning Miho, and [[HeelRealization realizing]] that the way she had been treating Saki was no better]].

* BreatherEpisode: Chapter 15 mainly focuses on some of the characters' families, and how they feel about tankery and some of the other events.



* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: [[spoiler:The new Student Council]] appears for the first time in the last chapter.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: A natural result when combining two series that each qualify for this trope.

to:

* LaserGuidedKarma: The Atagos believe that this is happening to Black Forest in the finals, with "the girl they all but forced out" leading an untested team against her old school. Kuroko, also known as "[[FanNickname Jagdpanther-chan]]" also [[KarmicNod believes she's the victim of this]]; she was friends with Miho, but didn't speak out in her defense before she left, so she believes getting detracked by one of Miho's teammates is her punishment.
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: [[spoiler:The new Student Council]] appears for the first time in the last chapter.
chapter, as does Masae's husband.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: A natural result when combining two series that each qualify for this trope. There are more than 100 named characters in this fic.

Added DiffLines:

* SecondHandStorytelling: Parts of the Interludes are told to other characters in the present, and as such, are often [[UnreliableExpositor colored by the speakers' biases and gaps in their knowledge]].

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: A subtle one to ''Fanfic/BoysUndSenshado''. As Maho thanks Masae for being understanding of her true motives, she mentions that she had been worried that Masae would presume to know what she would have done in that situation if she had a sister (as in Boys und Sensha-do, Akio had told Maho that if he had a sister, he would be there for her all the time). Masae then comments that she ''does'' have a younger sister([[OriginalCharacter Masaki]], who's Hiroko's mother), but she doesn't know what she would have done in Maho's situation.
* TheStationsOfTheCanon: Some canon events are referenced, although they often take place in different settings, and some matches are against different opponents (for example, Oarai practices against BC Freedom, rather than St. Gloriana).

Added DiffLines:

* BechdelTest: Passes. The girls talk with each other about a variety of subjects.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}
** Teru, while saying why she [[IHaveNoSon denied beeing related to Saki]], says that it's possible for people to consider those who weren't related to them by blood as family, but not see their blood relatives as family. [[spoiler:The former applies to a sense with Mizuho, who had a sister-like relationship with Teru and Saki despite being a distant relative]].
** Teru's comment referring to people being disowned by their families disturbs Maho, who had considered the possibility of it happening to Miho. [[spoiler:Miho is threatened with disownment unless she wins the semifinals]].
** When Miho and Hisa are trying to get Anzu to replace Momo as a gunner, Momo remarks that Anzu won't help out outside of an emergency, but Anzu agrees to it after Hisa points out that Anzu doesn't walk away or slack off when times are difficult, "especially not now." [[spoiler:Like in canon, Oarai's existence is on the line in the tournament]].
** Teru seems unusually interested in hearing about what happened to the members of one of Maho's crews, after they had an accident. [[spoiler:She was in a similar incident, and the outcome was much less pleasant]].
** Sumire asks Teru if she wants to say anything about Miho's decision to save the sinking tank, and is about to compare it to something else, but Teru preemptively says that the comparison doesn't apply. [[spoiler:It turns out that Teru was in a similar situation once in the past, succeeding in saving Saki and herself, but failing to save Mizuho. She believes Miho's decision was easy compared to hers, (since Miho could have aborted the rescue, and could save all the girls), but later tells Miho she did the right thing]].


Added DiffLines:

* SequelHook: In the final chapter, [[spoiler:Masae considers seeking out Shiho to understand why she would decide to disown Miho, and several of Oarai's former opponents resolve to improve their performance and take the championship next year]].
