Saga of Tanya the Evil (known in Japan as 幼女戦記, Youjo Senki, lit. "The Military Chronicles of a Little Girl") is an adaptation of a Light Novel written by Carlo Zen and illustrated by Shinobu Shinotsuki. The animated adaptation started airing on January 6th, 2017 to March 31st, 2017 and spans 13 episodes, one of which being a recap episode. The show chronicles the exploits of Major Tanya von Degurechaff, a 10-year-old girl who is actually the reincarnated form of an unnamed Japanese atheist salaryman, who had in his dying moment denied that God existed, preferring to call him "Being X". Reborn in the magic-filled alternate history world just before that reality's Great War/First World War, Being X implores him to eventually find faith before his next death, or else he would be cut from the cycle of reincarnation.

The following weapons were used in the anime series Saga of Tanya the Evil:


Luger P08

Tanya is seen holding a Luger P08 in the ending sequence.

Roth-Steyr M1907

The unnamed Dacia General appears to be using a Roth-Steyr M1907 against Tanya in the Duchy's failed invasion of the Empire. Ultimately, it does little good to the mage's shields.

MAS Mle. 1892

All hope lost, Republican officers trapped by the Empire's encirclement in the Rhine Front take their lives with what seems to be their issued Mle 1892 Revolver, as characterized by the spur behind the trigger containing the large screw.

Submachine Guns


Entente Alliance mage, Anson Sioux is gifted a SIG MKMS as an early Christmas present from his daughter, Mary Sioux. Tanya ends up taking it after defeating Anson over the fjord and uses it against partisans and Republican mages in episode 8.

Winchester Model M1897 "Trench Gun"

Col. Anson Sioux, when joining the Allied Kingdom's task force during the Republican Army's encirclement and destruction is supplied a new Winchester Model 1897 "Trench Gun" which he loads with specialist shells using a speedloader.

Mauser Gewehr 1898M

The Empire's regular infantry and Republican partisans are armed with the Mauser Gewehr 1898M, characterized by its straight bolt and lack of a recess for the turned bolt of its carbine variants or the Karabiner 98k. The Empire is analogous to a merger of Imperial Germany and Austria-Hungary.

Lebel 1886

The Francois Republic's regular infantry is armed with the Lebel 1886, seen mostly in the Rhine Theatre in the anime. The Francois Republic is analogous to that of the French Third Republic.

1896 Swedish Mauser

The Legedonia Entente Alliance's regular infantry is possibly armed with the M1896 Swedish Mauser, as the Alliance is analogous to a union of Sweden and Norway.

Mondragón Rifle

Tanya and all other Empire mages are armed with the Swiss Mondragón Rifle fitted with detachable 12-round magazines, most likely to parallel the acquisition of the SIG Mondragóns by the German Empire in the prime timeline.

M1 Garand

The mage units of both the Legadonia Entente Alliance and Allied Kingdom both use the anachronistic M1 Garand. No doubt something along the lines of financial and materiel sales by the Unified States, this universe's analog to United States, as it is noted in other media that the U.S. is a financier of the belligerents.
