* How exactly is playing this sport supposed to net anyone the attention of boys, as is the stated goal of several characters? As seen in real life, female counterparts of most sports are not nearly as popular, and in the few cases where they are as popular or moreso, such as women's volleyball, it's because the skimpy uniforms provide [[FanService eyecandy]]. In Sensha-do, unless you want to get your head blown off by a stray round, you're going to be buttoned up at all times in combat (not that this stops people from doing so anyway), and wearing a full uniform to boot. Unless there are cameras mounted inside the tanks with imagery being broadcasted to spectators, the girls would be lucky if any guy even recognizes them.

*** That does nothing to explain where the ''League'' gets its funding from, since the prohibitive cost of those giant city-ships alone would bankrupt most smaller nations.

**** It's not exactly a national sport, since we have no indication that the sport exists in a college or professional format. It's the equivalent of shelling out billions of dollars to fund junior varsity basketball when the NBA doesn't exist.

* Two related ones from der Film. First, why does Yukari seem excited at the possibility of visiting Miho's home and seeing "the birthplace of the Nishizumi style," if she's primary a fan of Miho herself, largely because of Miho saving the tank? Second, why would Chiyo Shimada urge her daughter to crush the Nishizumi style in her battle against Oarai, given that at the time, no one's aware that Maho will be participating? It seems Maho might be the only character who both understands and fully appreciates the difference between the Nishizumi style and Miho's style of leadership at Oarai.

* I'm sorry, but if the Anzio OVA is canon, how exactly was Duce planning to win? Her tankettes could not have done any damage at all since they only had machine guns. Even assuming that her ruse had w corked, her guns are too light to take out Ooarai's tanks before they rallied. Was she just hoping to rush everything at the enemy flag tank?

*In the movie after the [[spoiler:T28]] shows up, couldn't they have simply shot it in the side after it had ditched its outer tracks? The thing only had about 50mm of armor there.

*** It's Episode 8, in a conversation between Darjeeling and Pekoe.

*In the post-movie drama CD, the Bermuda Trio drunkenly worries about the kind of influence someone with a "bad" home life like Miho would have on Alice, until Alice reassures them that she only thinks of Miho as her friend. Considering that Miho hasn't told even her friends much about her family (since they don't really grasp why she doesn't want to go home), how would these three girls know about [[AbusiveParents what kind of mother]] Shiho is?

* Why doesn't Sensha-do have timeouts? Or refs? Or any kind of emergency response, really? Sensha-do is a sport, not real warfare. [[spoiler: Miho's choice to save her teammates at the expense of the match shouldn't have even been a choice...play should've been suspended while emergency responders saved the girls in the sinking tank.]]

** Anzio isn't a ''very'' poor school. Simply isn't a rich one - poor in comparison with powerhouses like Saunders. The school seems to have enough funding to run itself and to provide for its students, but not to indulge in unlimited budget for every single school club - and for them, tanks seem to be just one more club, not a school priority like in Glorianna or Saunders. That's the reason Anzio clubs have food stalls ''everywhere'' to earn club money. [[spoiler:Also, priorities: Pasta first, fuel and ammo later - budget-permitting.]]

**** The full name is "Panzerkampfwagen IV", literally meaning "Armoured Fighting Vehicle Type 4". In English, AFV is the catch-all term for tanks, tank-destroyers (like the StuG and Hetzer), APCs etc, but in German "Panzerkampfwagen" ''specifically'' means "tank" while "Panzer" is the catch-all term. This is an excellent illustration of the difference between transliteration and interpreting.
**** An inversion of this is seen in the Panzerkampfwagen 38(t), which was originally called "LT vz. 38" (Lehký tank vzor 38) - in Czech, of course. It can safely be assumed that most Germans would have had trouble pronouncing the latter.
