- "I will now explain the story that begins here. Thanks for your attention. Panty-shots are extremely forbidden! And there will be less tanks!"

Extended Summary: As the girls from Ooarai plays a game with each other, Alisa is able to take note of some strategy details from their Sensha-Dou team and references of the behavior in battle. In the pool play, Miho acted as the leader for Anglerfish Team, providing useful commands against the Rabbit Team leading them to victory, a mirror Miho's role on their Sensha-Dou team. In the pool play, Hippo Team members entered in the water with heavy historic battle outfits, which led them into toppling into the water from the weight, a reference to their first tank painting scheme that eliminated the Stug III's low profile advantage, giving the enemy an easy target. In the pool play, the Rabbit team played under their own rules, which is how they behave in the battlefield, as they have a weak tank against most of the enemies they face, like the Elephant and Pershing, they need to come up with creative tactics.

Right after they finish, the Anglerfish Team makes a visit, being forced to eat Darjeeling's food, with Assam and Pekoe also becoming servants to save the meeting.
- Nii Maruko (Nanashirou Gorou) was commissioned to make MLLSD after Seisaku Linkai, the original writer of Girls Und Panzer, saw his (extremely NSFW btw) doujinshi, Lovey-Dovey Panzer. He found it so hilarious, that he commissioned Maruko to begin publication of Motto Love Love Sakusen Desu, a comic strip that would explore the Girls Und Panzer universe, albeit at a significantly more appropriate manner. Nii Maruko has gone on to also write and illustrate the MLLSD Web-version comics, greyscale 4-komas that are published on a weekly basis.
- Several of the themes Maruko touched on in Lovey-Dovey Panzer are seen in his works, including Nonna literally babying Katyusha, Miho showing sings of having a bit of a broken childhood, Darjeeling being incredibly eccentric in actions and not just words, and the cast as a whole getting empty eyes when something incomprehensibly shocking happens.
