Plot

Ooarai vs. BC - second round

Main article: Ooarai Girls Academy vs. BC Freedom High School

The episode starts from when episode one left, with the BC team marching in formation on the battlefield. Commander Marie, along with her two vices Andou of the Examination faction and Oshida of the Escalator faction, discussing about their strategy and the latter two exchanging compliments and apologizes for the insults they gave to one another in the past. The talk was put to an end when from their right flank Ooarai team started to fire on them, hidden in a forest. BC team, assuming Ooarai was trying to provoke them and lure them into a trap, disengaged and went into a bocage, an area of mixed woodland and pasture.

Meanwhile the Ooarai team regrouped to discuss on how to proceed next and Yukari theorized that, despite the BC team's quarrels they saw so far was just a farce to deceive them, the two groups of students that compose the BC school, Escalator and Examination, still have animosity and they formed a combined team solely for the purpose of beating Ooarai. Saori also pointed out the Char B1 of Mallard Team looked very similar to the SOMUA S35 and, with that in mind, they come up with a plan and proceed to move towards their adversaries.

Bocage Das Finale 02

The bocage where BC decided to make a stand

In the meantime, the BC team placed their tanks in key points of the bocage, ready to receive Ooarai, with Marie even relaxing and enjoying a picnic with her crew. Andou spotted Ooarai team approaching from one of the main roads, expressing surprise for their rushed and lack of thinking move. Leopon Team, along with Rabbit Team and Shark Team, opened fire at BC tanks and the latter did the same to respond. Unknown to BC team, this was just a smoke and mirror tactic of Ooarai in order to let the rest of the team to go around them without getting spotted by shooting at the wall on the side of the road to create a passage and, using the high bushes to stay hidden, find out the exact positions of the enemy tanks and take a guess on where their flag tank might be. At the same time the Mallard Team, taking advantage of the bushes high enough to cover all of their tank but the turret, repainted the latter with the same colours of BC tanks and sneaked behind their lines, starting to shoot at them without knock them out in order to make them think it was one of their own teammates betraying them. The plan worked smoothly as the two factions started to fight each other, completely ignoring Ooarai team and knocking out two SOMUA and two ARL 44 in the process.

An upset Marie

Marie realizing her teammates are fighting among each other

Marie, thinking all that firing sound in the background was her team fighting Ooarai, jumped on her FT-17 as soon as she find out what was really happening and literally put her tank between the two factions – what remained of them – in order to stop the feud.Andou and Oshida continued to insult and blame each other for the "betrayal". Mallard team shot at them once more and for Oshida it was the umpteenth proof of the Examination's stab-in-the-back, until Marie pointed out to Oshida that the two remaining SOMUA were right in front of her and thus that tank was one of Ooarai's. What was left of BC team moved to chase Mallard Team and knock it out shortly after by both Andou and Oshida who then apologized for the misunderstanding.

BC tried to force their way and leave the bocage area to reorganize, however, despite managing to knock out Ooarai's Rabbit Team, Duck Team and Anteater Team, they failed in the attempt losing all of their tanks in the process until Marie's flag tank was the only one left. Outnumbered and outgunned Marie was soon surrounded by Anglerfish Team, Leopon Team and Shark Team, having only the time to eat a forkful of one her sweets in her usual calm and dignified attitude before her tank was knocked out, declaring Ooarai team the winner of the match.

Aftermatch

Shortly after the end of the match Andou and Oshida were apologizing to Azumi for losing the match despite the fact BC was among the best four schools when the latter was a student of it. Azumi encouraged the two girls, saying that if they keep working together and trusting in each other they will become many times stronger than they are now. Than Oshida wondered where Marie was, who in the meantime was offering a banquet full of sweets to the Ooarai students, with Miho thanking Marie for the fun match, the latter replying it was as fun as the “beginning of a revolution" and promising next time her school will be “offering a revolution" to Miho.

The Duck Team stated is a difficult question to answer and that is better to eat while thinking about it, starting to talk about the preparation of the tarashi-yaki in a way that sounds for Fukuda as metaphors on how to do better in Sensha-dō. Fukuda tells them they will face Koala Forest High School in three days, with Duck Team joking on the fact they might have an actual Koala as commander.
