SAKAKIBARA Rem

Manga published in book form, in magazine [Japan]

Otaku artist Satomi is on his way home from a Comiket when he slips back in time to the middle of the Battles of Khalkhin Gol in 1939. He meets an army officer who takes a fancy to the combat vehicle that Satomi drew, personi- fied as a girl. The story comically unfolds while incorporating such elements as the sense of tension that comes with time travel, the heavy subject matter of war, and military tanks drawn based on detailed documentation.
