Miho's Dark Secret

With the series coming up on a long hiatus it's time to step back and examine the dark underbelly of Girls und Panzer.

I'm not talking about the very strong implication that fatalities in the sport are not at all unheard of.

I'm not talking about the fact that Miho was disowned due to the fact that she lost a match as a result of....not letting a teammate die.

I'm talking about the the stuffed animal gallery in Miho's apartment.



What the hell?



Seriously guys. What the HELL up with those bears?

Is she pre-med?

Does she beat them, pull them apart in a sadistic rage and then.....overcome with guilt, lovingly sew them back together?

What horrors have those bear eyes witnessed?

What demons reside in that girls psyche?

(Or is there a completely innocent explanation?)

Discuss...

1 Yeah, that struck me as very strange. I can't think of an innocent explanation, either.

2 Obviously she runs the local Teddy Bear Rescue group, a safe house for abused and abandoned toys.

3 She just really liked Kampfer.

4 She has a weird relative, who gives her a relevantly-injured bear every time Miho gets injured.

5 Well, that relieves us of the fear that Miho is nuts, but it means she's accident prone, which is nearly as bad. And it means that "nuts" runs in the family.

Is this canon or just a guess?

7 It's just a guess.

But it sounds very anime-ish, doesn't it?

8 "Nuts" may be somewhat culture-defined. Remember the preschooler rhyme "Neko funjatta", made known by Kampher? The kids sing it in preschool. So yeah, maybe not "nuts" but "slightly eccentric".
