** They had their chance to pay good unto good when, after the movie, a crowfunding effort was started to provide funds for the Finnish tank museum where the only surviving [=BT-42=] (featured in the movie) was rusting outdoors, so proper shelters could be built for their tanks. At time of this writting, the crowdfunding had reached ''twenty-eight thousand Euros'', most of them coming from Japanese Anime/GirlsUndPanzer fans, and an estimated ''one third'' of them from Oarai residents.

* As three different groups were releasing subtitles for the series, the fansub/translation group that first translated the mangas and many of the [=OVA=]s wouldn't usually have bothered with the regular episodes. Still, they also released a ''very'' carefully done release of the whole series. The reason? The little daughter of one of them was hooked to the series (despite it being aimed at a rather older demographics) and her DotingParent made them for her.

* Also in episode 8. Ōarai's tanks are fleeing Pravda's ambush and the Stug III suffers a hit to the tracks, immobilizing it just before it can take cover with most of the others inside an abandoned building. But the Panzer IV - [[TheMenFirst bringing up the rear]] - rotates to be back to back with the Stug III and pushes the crippled vehicle to safety while covering it from and returning fire against Pravda's forces.



* The overall character development of the first 5 teams of Ooarai tankery squad is one big heartwarming moment as well. As they all start off as individual groups with no experience in the sport, and didn't know what they were getting into. However, because of one girl's efforts for them, the groups decide to better themselves in tankery and not rely on their leader to win. By the final tournament, the first 5 tankery teams have become competent enough on their own, as well has developed such as strong trust on their commander that they will follow whatever commands she gives and, if need be, sacrifice their unit for her.
* Anzio, and Anchovy in particular, become a HeartwarmingMoment for their new reactions in their OVA, which arguably fits better with the series than their original presentation in the manga. The lesson shifts for Miho, from the commander needing to be the one to bring victory no matter what, to knowing that they should always be proud of their team's accomplishments.



* RealLife example. The town of Ōarai was heavily hit by the Tsunami in 2011 and even had to receive humanitarian aid from relief organizations for a time. They understandably latched upon the series popularity and tried to milk it for every penny they could through merchandising; the entire town became a tourist trap of ''tremendous'' proportions for the episode 12 preview show (trust us, there's tourist trapping, there's overkill, and then there's Ōarai). The fans reaction to this was... getting infuriated? Naaah... Poking fun at them? Neither. They ''gushed about how nice and polite the Ōarai townsfolk were and acknowledged that they '''did''' need every penny''. This happened even on websites with horrible reputations as {{Jerkass}}es[[note]]4chan, of all places[[/note]].

* As mentioned above, many people ''actually'' left the theaters in ManlyTears [[TearsOfJoy of Joy]] after the episode 12 preview. The examples above explain what was so heartwarming and awesome of the whole episode: this mention is for the fact that grown-ups were so moved by it as to engage in ''[[NotHyperbole literal]]'' RealLife cases of those tropes.

[[DespairEventHorizon Already despairing because these losses,]] Erika accidentally overhear her teammates badmouthing her in her back. At this moment Maho appears [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and berates the girls for laughing behind Erika's back.]] Maho's speech not only lifting Erika's spirit back, its also encourage her to find her own senshado [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe together with Maho.]]
-->'''Maho''':"Laughing at someone who fought with all her might behind her back!! Have you no shame!? Making fun of someone with calm face is vulgar!! Trying alone and failing is thousand time more worthy!!"

* In the first chapter of Little Army 2, Emi tells Hitomi of all her regrets, particularly becoming a pariah among her old team, and transferring to Japan to run away from it all. As she trails off by saying that she'd hoped she could see Hitomi again, Hitomi simply says "Then we're the same. Welcome back, Emi-chan."
* Chapter 6.5 of Little Army 2. Emi apologizes to Maho for how she'd treated her in the original series, and admits that she's come to see her as a kind person. Maho accepts the apology, and leaves Emi with a warning that Miho- or rather, Oarai as a whole, is strong, showing how much regard she has for her sister and her school.
* Chapter 9 of Little Army, when the four friends from the original Little Army reunite, with the knowledge that because [[spoiler:they both lost the second round]], they'll be facing each other in a tankery match soon.

* In the movie, Ōarai is going to be closed (again) unless their sensha-do team can win an annihilation battle against the University Team. Outnumbered 30 to 8, with vastly inferior equipment and under-experienced tank crews, Miho walks up to the enemy commander to exchange greetings on the day of the match knowing that she has a nigh impossible task. Then members from various high schools all turn up as "short term transfer students", bringing with them their personal tanks to make up the shortfall. Finally, Ooarai has a realistic chance of victory. And the first to arrive were the tanks from Kuromorimine lead by Maho.
** Chi-Ha-Tan shows up with ''twenty-two tanks'' by accident. Incompetent yes, but they're not about to leave their friends in trouble.
** Prior to that was Darjeeling's encrypted message[[labelnote:*]]Paul Verlaine's "Chanson d'Automne", a 19th-Century Poem used by the French resistance forces to commence the pre-Normandy Landing sabotage of German communication lines.[[/labelnote]] to every tankery team that have faced Ōarai previously (including [[AllPowerfulBystander Continuation High]]):
-->''Long sobs of Autumn Violins\\
Wound my heart with a monotonous languor\\
Only to drink this cup in the Northern Lands\\
It's some boiling black tea''
* Even earlier, the girls gather to say goodbye to their tanks, thinking they'll never see them again... and then Anzu sets up an improvised airstrip and Kay arrives with a Saunders C-5M Super Galaxy to help liberate Ōara's tanks and keep them save from [=MEXT=], with a promise to drop them off later once they're resettled on the mainland. Later, Saunders arrives to do just that, and Arisa tells Miho that this is a big favor and needs to be repaid in a big way:
-->"You keep practicing Senshado, okay? Don't give up!"
* The movie settling once and for all that Maho loves her sister and always has. The flashback to their childhood was particularly heartwarming given that we rarely see the sisters on screen outside of their tanks.
