"I never miss my mark. I blow them away 120% of the time"
―Ami Chōno
"Good job, very nice!"
―Ami Chōno

Ami Chōno (蝶野 亜美, Chōno Ami) is one of the supporting characters in Girls und Panzer.

Profile

Ami Chōno is a Captain from the Japanese Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF), a Sensha-dō instructor, and a member of the Sensha-dō Federation Strengthening Committee. She operates a Japanese Type 10, a modern tank used by the JGSDF, which is technically the strongest tank shown in the series. However, since Sensha-dō rules only allow tanks planned before August 15th, 1945 to enter competition, her tank is not allowed to participate in Sensha-dō matches.

Appearance

Ami Chōno is a tall woman with short black hair and black eyes. She is most often seen wearing her JGSDF uniform. On some occasions she is seen wearing a Sensha-dō Federation referee's uniform.

Personality

She's been shown to be quite daring and confident of herself, introducing herself (and her tank) in a quite magnificent way, in the process crushing the principal's expensive car just for show. She may also have a tendency to rush into things, since she immediately ordered the Ooarai students to participate in a mock battle on their very first training day, despite most of them being puzzled and confused about what to do.

In the 8th Omake of the spin-off manga Motto Love Love Sakusen Desu!, it is shown that her personality may have caused her co-workers to resent her slightly. This was especially the case with Kanon Sasagawa (A-Ko) who found Ami's claim of having a 120% hit rate to be utterly unbelievable. Additionally, Kanon's imitation of Ami, including her catchphrase, "Good job, very nice!", was found to be extremely amusing by her fellow judges, Remi Takashima (B-ko) and Hibiki Inatomi (C-ko), implying that the two of them also share a similar sentiment.

Background

2016-07-23-848394.jpeg

Ami is an acting sensha-dō class instructor of Ooarai. She used to study under Miho's mother, Shiho Nishizumi. She is first seen when she arrives at Ooarai by airdropping (LAPES) her tank into the Ooarai parking lot, in the process hitting and flattening the principal's car (a fairly rare Ferrari F40). She then immediately orders the girls to have a mock battle. She is often seen observing and officiating at the sensha-dō matches. During the final round match of the 63rd National Championship Tournament she acted as the head-judge.

Ami is also a member of the Sensha-dō Federation Strengthening Committee, as revealed in the movie, and assisted Ooarai's appeal to the Federation Director when Renta Tsuji was trying to shut down Ooarai. She is seen both confronting Shichiro Kodama directly, when Anzu Kadotani comes to the Sensha-dō Federation to plead Ooarai's case, as well as privately meeting with Shiho Nishizumi on Ooarai's behalf.

Trivia

  • She seems to be an announcer and manager for each match during the National Competition, though during the First Round match of the 63rd National Championship Tournament she is also seen in the role of a spectator, watching the proceedings while sitting cross-legged atop her Type 10 tank.
  • If Ami Chōno held command in a JGSDF combat unit, she would likely be in charge of a tank company (~16 tanks), being a Captain.
    • In Ooarai's amateur film production in the spin-off manga Motto Love Love Sakusen Desu!, Ami is depicted in command of a platoon of three Type 10 MBTs.
  • She is an instructor from the Armor Regiment, Combined Training Brigade, JGSDF Fuji School.
