Product Description

The lovely ladies of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing are back to battle a new breed of alien invader! The extraterrestrial menace known as the Neuroi have returned to Earth, and even a direct hit won't stop these monsters. The Strike Witches are Earth's last line of defense, but they'll have to learn some new tricks to survive this dogfight - and win the war on pants once and for all!

Amazon.com

The second season of the fan service fantasy-adventure Strike Witches (2010) picks up six months after the first season ended. Young witch Yoshika Miyafuji has returned to her native land of "Fuso" (a thinly fictionalized Japan) and completed junior high school. When the alien Neuroi attack Earth again, she insists on rejoining the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, a.k.a. the Strike Witches. Although the Neuroi's flying vessels can easily take out a battleship, they're vulnerable to adolescent witches flying with magic and Striker Units (awkward-looking mecha boots). Not surprisingly, Miyafuji is delighted to be back with all her old friends: their personalities are unchanged, and their adventures are virtually identical to the previous ones. But the point of Strike Witches has never been character development or storytelling. The series is little more than a string of panty shots, jiggle animation, and bath sequences. Even the battle scenes are shot to show the girls' undies, and there are frequent close-ups of tails sprouting from scantily clad rear ends as the Witches transform into their kawaii forms--with cats' ears and tails. Strike Witches may be fun for adolescent boys with raging hormones, but it may bore other viewers cold. The set comes with a box designed to hold both season's discs. (MA TV: violence, violence against women, nudity, risqué humor with lesbian overtones) --Charles Solomon

Two disclaimers before I begin:
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!

I enjoyed the 2nd season of Strike Witches.The animation is very good and so is the voice acting. I was a bit surprised at the episode content though. Each episode found the members of the 501st in a different situation. The main battle only began around the last 3 episodes. Most of the series was the team goofing off a lot. Nevertheless it was funny and pretty entertaining. There is a bunch of weird perverted stuff, but if ya don't let it bother you you'll probably enjoy it. Based on the ending a 3rd season seems likely. I wish there was a little more "meat and potatoes" to this story. If the story got more involved I would give it 5 stars. Since it's purely a fun and games type series I'll give it 4. It has more potential than is actually achieved, but I think you'll enjoy it.

In the mid twentieth century the 501st joint fighter wing known as the strike witches gained renown for their victory in Britain against the alien race known as the Neuroi. Afterwards the 501st were disbanded and its witches reassigned to other units, but mere months later the 501st reunite in order to take up the fight to liberate Italy of the Neuroi threat. The series follows Yoshika Miyafuji and the other strike witches as they struggle to fight a far more lethal form of the Neuroi.

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!

If you are looking up season 2, then you already know what the show is about. So to get right to the point. It was a good show. To be honest, season one was better, but season 2 did a good job at following up the show to season 2, while keeping the story line going. I have seen many shows where season 1 was great, and 2 was just OK. This was not like that. They did calm it down a little in season 2, versus season 1, but it was still written on almost the same level as season one, at least in my opinion. If you watched season one, then watch season 2. It will not disappoint. And no, they did not kill the show at the end like some shows do.. It is just a good continuation of the show, with a decent ending. I dont think you really need to know more, and I dont want to give any spoilers, so I will not go into detail about what happens in season 2. Just watch it.

I didn't find the second season as compelling as the first, the sequel being less about the
horrors of war, and more about the panties. (Still, that isn't necessarily bad...) The tone
of this one was much more light-hearted, and in a way, it was a relief.

The sequel has a definitive ending, too, as opposed to the first season, which just sort of
tapered off.

I was a little disappointed that the characters didn't evolve in any significant ways, and
their inter-relationships were more suggested-at than told.

Anyone who enjoyed the first season is sure to like this one, too, and taken as a whole,
Strike Witches is definitely in the top 5 of my favorite anime series ever.

Goes into more background on the rest of the team. The ending was different, but also some of the characters were different than the 1st season. Definitely shows them overcoming obstacles, but it has its "life lessons" and "adult ideologies" mixed in as well. Saving the planet once again from alien forces with the might of witches.
