- "The cake looks delicious..."
"Mako-san, that's not what you should be looking at..."
- ―Mako and Hana
Hana is a second year student from Ooarai Girls Academy, and she is the gunner of Anglerfish Team's Panzer IV. Her height is 163 cm and her blood type is type B.
She is the daughter of Yuri Isuzu.
Hana is a tall, elegant girl with long black hair and dark grey eyes. On the front left side of her head there is a longer strand of hair that gives Hana a slightly cuter side then what was previously designed of her.
Hana is a gentle, soft, relatively quiet girl; only on rare occasions do her emotions get the better of her (for example, when regaining consciousness after being knocked unconscious during the practice match). Her bold yet quiet and steady temperment is shown on several occasions, and is often remarked upon admiringly by Yukari Akiyama. She is shown as highly loyal to her friends, having no fears, together with Saori standing up for Miho when she was being pressured to join the fledging Sensha-Dō team. In spite of her polite manners, Hana is capable of putting her foot down when she feels she is doing the right thing, as shown when she refused to heed her mother's orders to forsake Sensha-Dō, despite her love and respect for her. Despite being all but disowned by her mother, she nevertheless maintained her happy, positive outlook, not showing any particular sign of distress or grief.
Her hobby is Ikebana; while she is highly skilled in that activity, she felt there was something missing, and that her style lacked strength. She took up Sensha-Dō because she felt it might give her what she lacked, and in the end she is proven right, coming up with a style that couples the previous cleanliness and order with her Sensha-Dō derived strength and boldness (as her own mother admitted).
Hana comes from a family that traditionally practices flower arranging, or Ikebana. She, together with Saori Takebe, become the first new friends of Miho Nishizumi when she transfers to Ooarai Girls Academy. When Ooarai is setting up a Sensha-Dō team, Hana is at first interested in joining because she expresses a desire to do something different than flower arranging; however, when Miho declares that she doesn't want to join, Hana reconsiders for her friend's sake. Miho later relents when both Hana and Saori are apparently threatened with expulsion by Student Council President Anzu Kadotani, and both her friends then join as well.
During the first practice match, supervised by their acting instructor Ami Chōno, Hana serves as the driver of her tank team. While crossing a bridge, their tank gets hit and she is knocked unconscious; Mako Reizei, who had just joined them (after being picked up in the middle of the battle), immediately replaces her and prevents the tank from falling off the unsteady bridge. In the end, their tank was the only one left standing because of Miho's leadership. After the practice match, Hana volunteers to be the gunner after having experienced a strange, exciting feeling when the tank's gun fired. Later, Hana's tank team will be called the "Anglerfish Team".
After the practice match against St. Gloriana Girls College, which they lost, the girls of Ooarai were forced to dance the Anglerfish Dance, something that they dreaded due to its embarrassing costumes and awkward choreography. During that dance, Hana tries to reassure her teammates by pointing out that "if you think of it as embarassing, it'll only make it more embarassing." Later, Hana met her mother, Yuri Isuzu, who upon learning that her precious daughter was practicing Sensha-Dō passed out from the shock. When urged by her mother to abandon Sensha-Dō, she refused, stating that she felt that Sensha-Dō might help her to get stronger and find a new style; for this, she is ordered never to return to her family home.
During the first round match of the Sensha-Dō tournament against Saunders University High School, Hana truly began to blossom as a tank gunner, being able to hit Saunder's flag tank (which was moving at high speed) and knock it out. In all the following matches, her ability keeps growing to where she becomes one of the best shots in the series.
During Episode 10, her mother reconciled with her after seeing the positive effects that her Sensha-Dō activity had on her, namely a strength and individuality that her earlier flower arrangements lacked, therefore acknowledging their respective differences and giving Hana her blessing.
- The name Hana means "flower" (華), which fits with her love of flowers and Ikebana..
- Hana's surname Isuzu means "fifty" (五十) (i) and "bell" (鈴) (suzu).
- Isuzu may based on Japan car maker, Isuzu Motor Ltd.
- That being said, her last name could also be based off the Japanese light cruiser, Isuzu , which was sunk on April 7th, 1945.
- Isuzu may based on Japan car maker, Isuzu Motor Ltd.
- Hana's favorite flower is the Wisteria and her favorite tank is the Italian Carro Veloce L3/33.
- The reason why she loves Carro Veloce L3/33 is because she thinks they resemble a large flower vase.
- Hana was the fourth character to receive an official voice pack mod for the online tank battle game World of Tanks, as part of developer Wargaming.net's Japanese promotional collaboration with Girls und Panzer.
- Hana's birthday (given by Miho Nishizumi in Episode 1) is December 16th, the same date in 1944 as the start of the Battle of the Bulge, Germany's last major offensive of World War II.
- Though initially choosing Sensha-dō, Hana (along with Saori Takebe) changed her elective to Incense Ceremony to support Miho. She and Saori both re-joined Sensha-dō only after Miho agreed to the Student Council's demands.
- Hana is the one of the two people, with Kay, to be receptive to Assam's lame jokes, indicating a bad sense of humor.
- Hana is known to have a big appetite: her regular meal equals two days of her teammates', while a "diet" consists of their regular meal. While this is not addressed so explicitly in the anime as in the manga, careful observation shows that the character detail is faithfully represented and her meal portions are always significantly larger than her teammates'.
- In Das Finale OVA 1, Hana is shown to be fine with spicy food because she can drink many shots of the non-alcoholic Spicy Habanero Club Rum.
- In MLLSD Web Edition, according to Saori, Hana is blacklisted by plenty of restaurants for having a blackhole stomach.
- Hana could immobilize a tank without missing a shot from a distance of 1500m.
