Here we are, we finally see Anzio's Duce in all of her glory, followed by her faithful second-in-command, Carpaccio!
Just a GIF made out of a preview video of the OVA. I can't wait for it!

If it's appropriate for the British commander to be named after tea blends, I suppose so... after all, Italian tankettes were nicknamed "Arrigoni" as their size remembered cans of food (which the Arrigoni firm was an important producer in Italy).
Fish and meat together? That's not quite orthodox...
Oh, and I thought "Darjeeling" was one of the other characters being a wise-ass. I did not know it was the exact name. I was a bit suspicious of "Anchovy" since the Japanese do like their name games, but often don't know a lot about other nations to any great extent. (Think the typical American view of the world circa 1940-1960 Hollywood and you get the idea.)
Well, the tankettes were also nicknamed "anchovy tin cans" because they resembled the flat cans used for anchovies in oil... hence the nickname for the commander (her real name was revealed as Chiyomi Anzai).
Besides, they already said the battle will be different than the one seen in the manga, and this makes me think they'll probably make it more or less a curbstomp battle. You don't need that much screen time for that.
