The focus is on a young girl called Yoshika Miyafuji, an average normal girl who one day learns of her fathers past and is drawn into the conflict with the Neuroi, she comes accross as a somewhat shy girl but at the same time she has the detirmation to help others around her and better herself, and as shown in this series she demonstrates this by showing courage and conviction in the face of the enemy.
This is mostly a slice of life story centering on the various girls that serve in the Strike Witches, that also contains some drama and some mild character conflict between the battles, and the team bonding that occurs during them.
Initially one might look at the cover thinking that this series is perverted, it can be but it simply isn't the direction the show takes, the characters don't wear pants but its never forced in your faces, from the moment you encounter the witches it feels more natural when watching, and never becomes an issue.
The fun part in this series is that although the Neuroi battling is deadly serious, the show never really takes itself that seriously, the characters bond, have fun, and act as an organized group of individuals when they need to be, and if you're a fan of girl power, this show has loads of it.
It's worth noting this series does have nudity and an episode solely focusing on someone stealing Yoshikas pants, but its never really that perverted, if you can get over some of the adult humor, it comes accross as a funny, if not entertaining piece of material.Read more ›
First of all, all 11 of the main heroines are based on a actual ACE during WWII and there striker units resembles the airplane of the respective countries. The sounds effect for all the guns are accurate, you can hear the loud and distinct sound of each bullet being fired from the BAR, and the rapid fire of the MG42.
Story-wise, nothing that will really drop your jaws, but it flows wells and does it well. The animations is also well done and very smooth. The dogfights are a treat and they use actually WWII formations and flight path are all coordinated.
If you happens to like WWII and Anime and don't mind some fan services then this is definitely for you.

Total fan service from the start, though it might leave you feeling a little dirtyPublished 2 months ago by chris herndon
This is a lot more funny on dvd than it was on the funimation channel.
So if you like ww2 weapons, aliens, lasers, and naughty boob play, here you go.
As a fan of other military animes such as Girls & Panzer and Upotte, I had to give this one a try. My one regret: I didn't see it sooner!!
First off: the DVD/Bluray. Read more
