** Yukari seems to be interested in Miho for more than just her tank skills. She's far too happy about getting to hear that ''she correctly guessed'' Miho's measurements and obviously jealous when Kay hugs Miho. In Episode 10, where Miho says she "loves" all her friends, Yukari's response is "Nishizumi-dono confessed to me!" In Chapter 10 of the manga, Yukari, in response to seeing Miho with "a beauty in traditional Japanese clothes" (Kikuyo, Miho's maid and ParentalSubstitute), is to follow them into the restaurant and eavesdrop on their conversation. While Yukari's worried about Miho, it's not hard to see her as checking out her possible competition, or possibly being attracted to Kikuyo. Becomes more explicit in ''Motto Motto Love Sakusen Desu'' - in one chapter she thinks of going to see a movie with Miho as a ''date'' and is very disappointed when the rest of the crew comes along as well.

* AwesomeMusic: All of the anime's renditions of popular national marching songs such as the British Grenadier March, the American Battle Hymn of the Republic and Army Goes Rolling Along are very well received. However, its version of the Russian song Katyusha is by far the most popular, as it is actually sung with lyrics...sadly, it's been removed from the Sentai release due to licensing issues, which is making fans rage. Its replacement is part of Korobeiniki, best known as [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros that song from]] {{VideoGame/Tetris}}.

** The argument is augmented by the historical information included in every booklet that accompanies the Blu-Ray releases, which seem to openly contradict each other about UsefulNotes/WorldWar2 (sometimes in the ''same booklet''). In general there seems to be two separate schools of thought among the writers of the booklets: that the war happened, and had a lasting influence post-facto, or it ''didn't'', and it's just a sports competition that got too heated.
** This has also led to a FandomSpecificPlot in which, under various circumstances, boys start getting involved in tankery, sometimes flying World War II-era fighter planes (and unfortunately, often being [[GaryStu Gary Stus]]). There's some double-irony in this, as it shows a hilarious lack of research from information found in said Blu-Ray booklets, which ''specify'' the major reason for the declining popularity of Sensha-do: '''attack helicopters'''. Not vintage planes, ''helicopters''.

** The few frames of the Anteater girls inside their immobilized tank that allow us to ''[[OpaqueNerdGlasses see Nekonyaa's eyes]]'', showing that she's happy and relaxed, have the effect of going against the [[TearJerker tear jerking]] AlternateCharacterInterpretation of her being emotionally devastated by her swift defeat. It seems that she thinks that [[spoiler: TakingTheBullet for the flag tank in the FinalBattle]] '''is''' a good enough showing for a total newbie.

* InkSuitActor: Nonna might be based on her voice actress Creator/SumireUesaka, who majors in Russian studies and was interested in Soviet warfare in UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo well before playing this role ([[http://i53.fastpic.ru/big/2013/0211/3e/b3df1e24f2ea13ce7746f1d1744c0c3e.png proof pic - note the 2011 date]]). The character also seems to look somewhat like the voice actress, and both are relatively tall (Sumire's 160 cm is tallish for a Japanese young women).

This is due to the fact that, in the art for her Character Song CD, Hana is shown to be holding a ''lily'', '''the''' symbol of [[YuriGenre yuri]] in Japanese media.

* MagnificentBastard: Maho. She is the only one to consistently guess what the rivals (including ''[[GuileHero Miho]]'') are planning, and always has contingency plans ready for them. She's ''utterly'' determined to both her open (upholding the Nishizumi-style's honor) and hidden ([[spoiler:allowing Miho to be free from having to do the same]]) goals. She might not be a walking show of charismatic joy, but she does command the admiration/respect of almost all other tankers. And she leads from the front, in a UsefulNotes/{{WWII}} tank. She is a GenderBender and an SuddenNameChange away from becoming an {{Expy}} of the [[UsefulNotes/ErwinRommel original]] TropeNamer...

** Counting ''The Real Anzio Battle'' OVA, we have [[spoiler:Hippo Team's Caesar and Anzio Academy's Carpaccio]] (which also briefly counts as FoeYay of sorts). The former's crewmates in the [=StuG III=] teasing her with her EmbarrassingNickname, [[spoiler: and later on eavesdropping on their post-match talk]] (thus implying a ShipperOnDeck status) certainly helped.

** Speaking of 4komas, a previous unofficial one of the 4koma, it often depicts series depict Hana as having a disturbing fixation overly fixated on Saori.Saori. Averted with the release of ''Motto Love Love Sakusen'', focusing more on her BigEater tendencies.



** Somewhat different but still present is if there is an AMV of this show then the chanses are pretty high that the music used will be ''Music/{{Sabaton}}''.

*** For those who aren't touched up on Cold War history, when the attack helicopter was first introduced in the 1970s many people were convinced that they would make tanks obsolete. Even though they did not, ever since tanks have no longer been the uncontested rulers of land warfare. It makes sense that the decline in popularity of tanks in the military would carry over to Sensha-do.

** Maho is regularly characterized as being [[BrotherSisterIncest creepily obsessed with Miho]], such as wearing a kimono with Miho's face on it, stealing Miho's [[spoiler:[[PantyThief underwear]]]] and wearing them on her head, and [[spoiler:hoping Miho gets disowned so that they can marry]]. Note this pretty much mirrors a popular fan interpretation about [[Manga/{{Saki}} Miyanaga Teru]] as well.
