Remember the Porsche Tiger? Notice how it's found in an lower deck storage room, not all that bigger than the tank itself, and that is not accesible except for small passageways. Also notice how it's found fully assembled, but then, there's talk of how "it's not gonna be available" for the Anzio and Pravda battles. Finally notice how in episode 10 they mention that the Automovile team just assembled all its scattered parts, even though it was found fully assembled. [[FridgeBrilliance Corolary:]] The only way for the tank to exit (and enter) the room is disassembled. Plainly, the Tiger (P) was originally lost because of a AnimalHouse - style [[PracticalJoke prank]] - the classic "disassemble a car and assemble it again iside their room" one, but UpToEleven. Now, [[WackyFratboyHijinx what kind of people is likely to do that kind of stuff?]]. Having been stablished the past presence of fratboys in Õarai, there remains only the doubt if the Tiger([[labelnote:P]]rank[[/labelnote]]) was hidden there as revenge for the academy sending the guys away, or if sending the guys away was a revenge for stuff like hidding their best tanks.

She has shown to be prone to amusing {{Villainous Breakdown}}s, and her (and her crew's) level of competence has been sown not to be [[MilesGloriosus as good as she brags it is]]. She ''is'' likely to go all GloryHound when (not ''if'') Miho's next plan seems to be about to give them victory[[note]]we all know it's gonna happen; the doubt is only if it will give them victory or it'll only ''seem'' to do so[[/note]] and try to take matters in her hand. [[StopHelpingMe It's doubtful that'll end well]]. This will be especially humiliating if it's because Maho had ordered her to hold her fire as she closed to point blank with Miho, but Erika can't control herself. Possibly having Maho seeing this as the final crack in her devotion to the family tradition.

\n* From a purely logical point of view, Women are smaller on average than men. Given that making the crew space smaller means a smaller overall tank, well, do the math. GUP-verse quite likely was less sexist from the start, Men and Women both enlisted, and it's quite likely that both were, atleast initially, before tankery culture really established itself, were given assigned to tanks, but as the war wore on, and tanks were built with crew size restrictions that women fit under more easily, Tanking was seen as more of a woman's skill than a man's. The Military itself is still more egalitarian, but tank crews are still dominantly women, while tankery has become almost entirely a woman's sport.




There will also be a Nishizumi family dinner where they, after much arguing, decide on an exhibition free-for-all match between all three of them, or alternatively, Shiho vs. her daughters.

! Rather than disarming and de-militarizing Japan, the United States focused on Japanese Nationalism and Xenophobia.

It's almost ''certain'' that Japan is much more militaristic than in our world. At the same time, just ''look'' at how ridiculously multicultural the academies are.

* Viking Fisheries High School: Their tankery program probably utilizes Swedish tanks.

! Shiho will continue on the path of grudging respect and acceptance of Miho in season 2 and Maho will help her along

Not only has she displayed a rare moment of appreciation for her younger daughter when she was alone (which means she didn't have to put up an act for anyone, so it was genuine), she has also stepped in to give her school another chance to be saved. While Maho will remain the "true" heir of the Nishizumi doctrine, Miho will be seen, instead of a defector, as a founder of her own school of Sensha-do thought and a [[WorthyOpponent worthy rival]] rather than a pest to be destroyed.

Added DiffLines:


! Mika is actually Alice's older sister.

First, the most obvious parallel is that put side by side with Alice and her mother, Mika bears a great physical resemblance to them, with brown hair and eyes and similar eye shape. In addition, Mika has appeared in official art where the only other characters featured are Alice, Miho, and Maho, further implying a sisterly connection. Finally, Mika's fighting style greatly resembles how the Shimada-style of Senshado works, by relying on surprise, lightning attacks, and unconventional tactics to catch the enemy off guard, which she demonstrates during Operation Kill Serve.

If true, it would put Alice and Mika as direct parallels to Miho and Maho. Like Miho and Maho, Alice and Mika would be heirs to a long and respected Senshado tradition. However, the difference lies in Maho stepping up to take the mantle as heir to the Nishizumi-style to protect Miho, while Mika ran away and left Alice to inherit the Shimada style instead. Separation from the strict Shimada lifestyle could by why Mika is so laid back and carefree, and why she's enrolled in the extremely poor Continuation High School similar to how Miho is enrolled in the financially troubled Ooarai.

\n** POSSIBLY ''Confirmed'' by the movie, in which the [[spoiler:High School All Stars team on 30 mixed, overall inferior tanks holds their own against better tanks with far superior skills, in single tank victory, because their mixed status lets them cover each others weaknesses]]

Considering that Sensha-do is at least 80 years old, it stands to reason that there would be some rules to settle a battle where two teams knock each other's flag tank out at nearly the same moment. The tie breaker has to be fair to both parties and having a rematch is not an option considering most of the time depending on how badly damaged that tank is. So having it be based on number of tanks knocked out is fair because in a battle where it is 2 vs 6 the 6 tank team could only have a maximum of 2 kills while the 2 tank team only needs to knock out 3 tanks to break the tie. This would favor the smaller team who had to make good use of tactics to outmaneuver the larger team.

*** Something akin to this all-star team occurs in the movie.

* In the wake of the movie, season two will involve the Ooarai team and their friends from the other school carriers forming a pro team under Shiho Nishizumi's sponsorship to compete in the training matches for the World Championships (which would be a THIRD season)

to:

* It's not her eyesight at all - she just has terrible technique, and bumps the cannon off-target as she fires. She always seems to miss *to the right*, which is a common error for novice marksmen who "pull" the trigger instead of "squeezing" it. Pay close attention to the FreezeFrameBonus moments in The Movie.

* Continuation High School: The school is probably stuck using the most pathetic tank yet seen in GuP, the BT-42 modification of the T-34.
