- "It's Game Over!"
- ―Anteater Team
The Anteater Team consists of online game fanatics from Ooarai Girls High School. The team operates a Japanese Type 3 Chi-Nu which was found by Miho and the Rabbit Team on a parking lot, having been earlier ignored because it seemed non-functional; it was later painted with an image of an anteater. Together with the Leopon Team, they became the last-minute addition to Ooarai's lineup prior to the final round of the Sensha-Dō tournament.
About Type 3 Chi-Nu
The Type 3 Chi-Nu is a Japanese medium tank with a 75 mm gun, built as a stopgap defense of the Home Islands of Japan against the M4 Sherman. It never saw actual combat, as clearly referenced by the fact that Anteater Team was the first team eliminated in the Finals, without even firing a shot.
During the final round match against Kuromorimine Girls High School, the Anteater Team's tank suffered from serious transmission problems, exacerbated by its crew's inexperience. It accidentally reversed its course, but luckily this accident saved Ooarai's flag tank (Anglerfish Team) by getting in the way of a shot fired by Kuromorimine's Königstiger (Tiger II) commanded by Erika Itsumi; thus, they suffered an early exit from the match.
Against St. Gloriana - Pravda Compound Team
Anteater Team participated in the exhibition match, where it fought primarily against Pravda's tanks. It was able to lure one T-34 to a route under a bridge where Mallard Team was able to take it out. Anteater Team would eventually be knocked out when chasing the St. Gloriana flag tank, hit by a shot from Pravda's heavy tanks moving along a parallel road.
Against Selection University
Prior to the Annihilation match against Selection University, Anteater Team made use of their spare time to practice, work out and build the muscle needed to operate their tank at a passable level. When the match came, their work is shown to have paid off. In the chase through the wild west setting, Anteater Team were able to outmanoeuvre an enemy Pershing, reload quicker and traverse the tank fast enough to put the shot in first, all of which was only possible due to their improved physiques.
Unfortunately, the Type 3 Chi-Nu retained its crippling transmission problems, and the controls broke whilst Anteater Team was trying to escape from Alice Shimada, which only hastened their inevitable destruction.
