Awesome! So the tan was Rommel's after all!

And the most characterful AFV gets even more characterful. A shame that the main characters' Pz. IV is not nearly as interesting.

Why not? It's just a game, and all the other girls are doing it.

Absolutely - this show is all about fun. If it was all about getting every little edge, then everyone would only run around in late-war death machines like the IS-3, Centurion or ISU-152. These AFVs would eat Tigers for breakfast, but it just wouldn't be as amusing that way.

actually, if you pay attentions to the OP, you can see the final boss flash across the screen just for a few seconds, and I think they are the final boss because they are the only tanks being shown in silhouettes only, looks like Soviet tanks.

I think the OP shown all the "enemy" tanks which will appear in the shows.

my guess is in the end the "hero" tank will be upgrade to a long barrel 75mm VI H.

I have a question and how the manga chapter? I guess because the anime adapts the chapter?
if the anime has 13 episodes but the chapters there are, to my knowledge only 4 chapter out?

I am actually glad the production decided to retain (most of) the IV's original color scheme. A pink Panzer IV would have seriously challenged my sensitivities.

They all have their own tank schools. In fact, Miho originally transferred to this school because she didn't want to do tanking

Though aside from Oarai, I am not sure if other schools are on carriers.

My point was simple: Assuming other schools do not have such colorful cameo, wouldn't that mean the ones we're seeing are the abnormal ones?

At this point, I think its way too early to tell.

Hell, I am going to take a wild guess and assume that competition between schools will not happen until episode 5.

The very last tank shown is the Tiger though, which is what I'm saying. Hence, the Tiger used by Maho is likely to be Miho's final opponent.

Actually, the battle against St. Gloriana, aka the tank battle seen in the episode 1 prologue, happens next episode. It does look like Ooarai has the strangest non-uniform tank decor of the schools, given how we get homogenous/uniform teams like St. Gloriana's olive-green Churchill with desert brown Matildas, or the all-green Shermans in the OP.

They would never use a Soviet (or a British) tank as a last boss. Japanese animators would only ever use German or American ones. And American World War II tanks are boring, so it's pretty much automatically a German one; hence Maho.

Which would make it a Japan vs. Japan final, but that's anime for you.

It should be lime green, and have painted shark teeth. *folds arms*

I say we come to an agreement and go for pink with painted shark teeth!



****

Ahem! *cough cough*

But seriously, I think others have hit it right on the head - this is a show that is not really "serious" and/or "realistic", but is meant to be enjoyed, plain and simple.

Hmm ... kinda like ... Dog Days?

My god... the naming archetypes are all over the place. PUT IN MORE EFFORT, CREATOR-KUN!!

If a half-assed mecha nerd could name every character of his work either after a car or a cake, the consistency should be possible, especially with a series about WW tanks.

Rant over. Now excuse me, I need some Stug love.

Okay my WW2 era tanknerd history has been rusty over the last few years... but aren't those 75mm's just gonna bounce off the Matilda's (relatively thick for the era) armor?
