At last, the long-awaited days of tranquility are here! Tanya begins attending war college, where she spends her time feasting in leisure. But who would've thought that a conversation with General von Zettour would lead to another turn of events...! Will her days of delicious bread and clean bed sheets come to an end? 

Tanya, Tanya, Tanya. When will you learn that every time you speak and try to weasel your way to the rear...you end up doing exactly the opposite?! She's determined to get to the rear track but she just keeps digging herself a bigger and bigger hole, and it's genuinely hilarious. Especially when you can see the thoughts of the other officers as well as hers and how they're really not lining up how she wants. They see her as some determined, dedicated, ruthless, badass. 

Tanya does do something that she probably shouldn't have this volume....she uses her real world knowledge to plant the idea of a World War in everyone's minds. I'm not sure what's going to happen with that, or how it's going to go down but I kind of wanted to smack her one. 

Tanya gets given more responsibility this volume, but it remains to be seen what she'll do with it. Interestingly we slip ahead to the future?! And we see a group attempting to piece together the "eleventh goddess" who I'm assuming is Tanya, as they try to work out who she is, what she was doing and so on. I'm really curious about this direction in the storytelling. Is it there at the end to keep our interest? Is it going to carry on and provide some clues to the direction of the story? Either way it's an interesting choice and I'm assuming we're going back to Tanya for next volume.
