Anzio Girls High School

Main Article: Anzio Girls High School

Anzio High School (アンツィオ高校 Antsio Kōkō) is an Italian style academy from Aichi Prefecture which uses the Carro Armato P40, L3/33, Semovente da 75/18, and M13/40. Anzio High is a rather poor school, as all they could send to Ooarai as present for their victory in the Sensha-dou tournament were canned anchovies on sales and they had to save money for quite a while before being able to buy the P40; however, contrary to a few other schools, it's a private institute created to promote Italian culture in Japan. In the manga MLLSD, Ooarai and Anzio maintain a relationship full of provocations, with black market, spying, territory invasion and kinapping of students as POWs. It is named after the Battle of Anzio. The school insignia is a pizza. Their battle songs are “Funiculì, Funiculà”, a popular Neapolitan song and “Fiamme Nere” (“Black Flames”), “Arditi’s” battle march.

She wears an hybrid uniform combining Black Shirts (high boots, black shirt), similar to that of Benito Mussolini, the “grigio-verde” (grey and green), used by Italian troops during the Great War, and Arditi’s (knife and necktie). Anchovy’s personality widely differs between manga and anime (OVA). In the manga, she is a self-confident, hot-blooded, sometimes even cruel leader, seeing every Sensha-Dou battle as personal duel between the leaders. Due to this attitude she even tends to insult enemies before a match, calling them weak and cowardly, in the OVA she resembles all the classical stereotypes about the Italians: she is joyful, cheerful, a bit too self-confident and out of the battle she acts friendly and respectfully with the opponents. She takes Sensha-Dou as an opportunity to show the abilities to make the difference independently of brute force and firepower; for this, she is also respected by her teammates, with whom she has an equal relationship, that calls her “Onēsan” (“お姉さん”). However, she also cares about her subordinates, is a capable tactician and believes leaders have a responsibility to win the match for their team.
