1) Same as my review for Strike Witches. If you don't like fan service, stay away from this show. Very, very far away. If fan service makes you uncomfortable in any way, go stick your head under a pillow and pretend this show does not exist. You'll be happier for it.
2) There are going to be some minor SPOILERS from the first season in my review. If this bothers you, I'm sorry. But in order to review the second season correctly, I feel I must mention some stuff that happened in the first season.
Now that that's out of the way, let's begin (Yes, this is a combo DVD and Blu-ray box set, despite what the description says).
The lovely ladies (did I really just write that?) from the 501st Joint Fighter Wing return in Strike Witches 2. Once again, they find themselves struggling in the war against the Neuroi. However, they have clearly won the war on pants because no female wears them anymore. I still don't understand what pants did to deserve an entire war on them. Poor pants.
Actually, the real reason the witches don't wear pants is because their Striker Units (the planes their wear on their legs) are powered by a witch's magic, and must have direct contact (or near direct like wearing tights) with the skin. Again, this is never explained and you're just suppose to know. That's because the anime is a continuation of the manga, which has unfortunately never been released in the United States. So that, along with a few other plot points, are never really explained.
I'll make it simple. If you liked the first season of Strike Witches, you'll like season 2. All the same characters are back, all the same action, all the same jokes, all the same camera shots. And NEW camera shots, now with less pants!Read more ›
The animation is great, the characters are engaging, the story is intriguing and the
English dub is very good although lacked accents making this series a must own for any anime fan or at least watched.
Be warned the girls' panties are constantly visible and there is some brief nudity during a few bathing / shower scenes so it may not be suitable for children!
It's not a big deal, but it's a DVD+BD box set. There is a room for the first season's BD+DVD set, so it's a neat thing to have.
The twelve episodes of the second season follow the pattern of the first by mostly concentrating on the stories of just a few members of the crack international 501st Joint Fighter Wing at a time. The first two episodes concentrate on Yoshika Miyafuji and Mio Sakamoto and their journey from Japan to the Adriatic Theater. In episode 3 Lynette Bishop, Perrine H. Clostermann, and Yoshika, the only three witches to leave the military after the first season, get assigned to a tough old former instructor of Mio's for remedial training. In episode 4 Gertrud Barkhorn and Charlotte E. Yeager clash while testing a revolutionary jet striker unit with a minor but fatal flaw. In episode 5 after Yeager does things with a deuce and a half that should never be attempted, Francesca Lucchini rescues a mysterious girl and gives her a tour of Rome. In episode 6 Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen learns to her horror that the special magic ability which allows her to dodge attacks without having to generate shields makes her useless for protecting her BFF Sanya V. Litvyak on an extremely high altitude mission. Episode 7 is the all fan service episode involving a tiny Neuroi spy that infiltrates the base and tries to avoid destruction by hiding inside panties,... while they are being worn (insert your own joke). In episode 8 Yoshika mysteriously loses her ability to fly.Read more ›

|What happened to the listing?!?||
I think this is the right listing but they got some of the stuff mixed up. Is this the LE? I also think it'll still have blu ray considering it's listing 4 disks and it's a 13 episode series.
