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)

* 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.

** Confirmed in TheMovie. And they performed very well with it.

**** [[spoiler: Double {{Jossed}} in the movie: Oarai wins, but the school is still being shut down. The plot of the movie revolves around them fighting in tankery to save the school (again).]]



** Confirmed in episode 9. When meeting with the MEXT representive who tells the Student Council about the closure, he explains the school is closing due to low attendance rates and how there's nothing special about the school to justify its continued existence. He trails off into how it ''used'' to have a tankery program and Anzu latches onto it like a life preserver. "You wouldn't close down the national champion, would you?"

* From the "russian" four-pointed star on the Pravda uniforms it seems that the series takes place in the ''StrikeWitches'' universe. Probably there's still enough of Neuroi threat remains to base schools on land. Either that or the Neuroi are gone, but left some poisonous shiat behind as a scorched earth tactic. We're in WMG so [[SincerityMode it's a nice crossover theory]].

* Its' likely Katyusha was well aware. The spin-off manga, Motto Love Love Sakusen Desu, heavily implies that Katyusha got her promotion to commander for engineering the situation Kuromorimine found themselves in - advancing down a narrow mountain pass, something no respectable tank commander would do if they could avoid it.

* Worth noting only a couple of shots were seen from Pravda in the clip of the previous year's finals, nowhere near enough to get a good grasp on Pravda's accuracy. Pravda also aren't the only team who suffer from heinous accuracy dip against Oarai.

* Highly likely given the evidence shown in the series. Oarai is able to buy a Hetzer upgrade kit that never existed in real life for the finals, telling us that such things are produced commercially. They also have a Porsche Tiger, of which there are currently ZERO in existence, and a Type 3 Medium, only one of which exists in a museum. Likewise for Kuromuromine's Maus. It is safe to assume that these are replicas painstakingly crafted to be identical to the real thing, with carbon lining added into the armor for safety. In a world that has 7 kilometer-long school ships industry is definitely advanced enough to mass-produce copies of WWII tanks. 3D printing of parts, perhaps?
** Not for armor! Or any high-strength metal components. CNC machining, on the other hand...

perhaps? Armor could be a problem with this method but CNC machining, on the other hand...
could work.

But even that wasn't enough and the war still went on for generations; Whole generations where born with the war raging, and died of old age with the war still going on. Inevitable perhaps, the war went atomic.

* Erika blames Miho so harshly BECAUSE it was her tank that sank, and she's subconsciously avoiding the feeling that that makes the loss HER fault! She was almost certainly that tank's commander...
