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!
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
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.
