The second season
23 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately I have yet to see the first series of 'Strike Witches' but when I discovered that it was possible to watch the second series on line legally I decided to give it a go. I thought it might take a few episodes to figure out who was who and what exactly was going on but the characters and plot were quickly and efficiently introduced. Strike Witches is set in an alternate version of 1945 Earth where instead of countries battling each other they are fighting against an alien invader known as the Neuroi. The story follows the 501st Joint Fighter Wing: The Strike Witches as the fight the Neuroi in the skies above Italy; or as it is called here Romagna. It isn't all fighting though we get to see them training, practicing with new equipment and even enjoying a soak in their large bath... their modesty being protected convenient steam of 'lens flare'! While nudity is for the most part hidden the same cannot be said of the girls' knickers which are almost constantly on show sometimes in gratuitous close up! Thankfully there is a lot more to this series than fan service; there is lots of action and plenty humorous moments.

The 501st is made up of eleven witches from a variety of countries; I liked the character designs; the cute moe style meant the fan service didn't seem as creepy as it might have done if they had more realistic designs as they are meant to be in their teens; to be honest I barely noticed it after a while and just enjoyed the story. The animation looked good and the flying sequences were stunning in a way that brings the viewer into the action. Over the course of the twelve episodes I grew to care about the characters and when it was over I was left wanting more.

These comments are based on watched the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
