Final thoughts on Strike Witches


Ok that image has way too many people on it,lol. So, I just wanna wrap up my thoughts,since I already watched the 2 seasons,the 3 OVAS ( the pilot and the 2 that had been out for Arrow Victory ) and the movie.I’m still pumped so,here it is :

Do not be fooled by the apparently ridiculous premise, of magical girls, well witches to be exact, wearing no pants to fight evil. I must warn you the series doesn’t explain some things in detail,like do all women have magical powers or just a bunch? At what age do they really lose all that power,supposing they didn’t use it all in combat ( being active in the army means at around 20 you start losing your share of it ) cause there is this old lady,she can even still fly and all. Then the enemies…we don’t really know why they came to earth or who they are or why some seem “approachable” but end up being destroyed by others of the “same” race..we may never know but it’s not something that bothers me..why?

Because the character development makes up for it!! Once you forget or stop making it a big deal that most girls are showing their panties wearing shirts or jackets, ( some wear dresses or the like ),  it becomes a lot of fun, the battle scenes are well done, I love the inner magic of the girls, specially, Trude who gets super strong, the electrical thing Perrine does /Tonerre!,the way Eila never gets hit with her limited foresight, the night antenna thing Sanya has along with her song/spell,the magical Mia’s eye that can see stuff beyond,and when they all combine and attack,wow, amazing shit I’m telling you!!!

Then we have the relationships…oh yes… I love how Miyafuji seems fixated on breasts haha, but she looks cute with Lynne,even if, I personally, don’t think of them as more than friends, they are still super cute


Then we have Eila and Sanya… 332869-moe_165840_sample

That image comes out in the actual anime,so it’s canon I say, Eila is totally a white knight, and Sanya is the princess,I mean it can’t get clearer, omg there is this one episode with them….atch,gotta watch it yourselves,but yes,this is, I think, an actual couple, Sanya always stumbles in Eila’s bed after her shift is done ❤ I hope we get a little bit more of them.

Perrine has an obvious crush on Mio, but I don’t think there’s anything more to it, then we have… Minna and Mio..NOW that is interesting,since Minna lost a past love ( a dude ) and didn’t wanna feel like that again…so she super worries about Mio being injured or dead..HMMM, yes, I think there is something going on there. I’d like to see it develop a bit more, although I suspect it won’t be the case.


The other relationships have nothing romantic,well none that I see, we have Lucchini and Shirley,amazing partners,lots of fun to watch and definitely adorable, pair of wackos haha. Trude and Hartmann ( Erica ) are so much fun cos Barkhorn ( Trude ) is always nagging at Erica, I -think- maybe there is something there,but with Trude’s strong siscon there’s not much room for it .

Relationships aside, this show has it all,for me at least


Cool battle scenes

Endearing characters

Lovely relationships

Adorable characters ( yes, i liked them all,ALL )

Panty shots that didn’t bother me! ( I usually dislike such fanservice but in this case..well they just don’t wear pants. big deal )

Great musical score

Interesting story ( even if little gets solved )


If you watched or are watching Kantai Collection ( KanColle ) you’ll find the show even better, I did cos ,well it shares similarities, some fight on land some on air,and while sending Yamato ship to battle I kept thinking of the wonderful Yamato on KanColle, I had to giggle when they kept mentioning the Akagi ship too. So there ya go!!!

Do give this series a chance, it’s not only panty shots and it won’t interfere,it you don’t let it, it’s super super good,funny and cute ❤


There is a third OVA unreleased yet and there will be more of it, i am not sure , I think it’s a season 3, will it follow the same girls? I have no idea,but I’d love to watch more of the red panties witches ,haha specially if they do follow the manga that there is for it and include Don and Jane ( this is a very blatant obvious couple there )

Don Jane

That’s fanart but it’s practically what you get hehe.


Be sure I wouldn’t recommend random meaningless ecchi titles ❤ … I mean I haven’t got to watch Kampfer..I think I may never lol.

Strike Witches…the time has come

I finally decided to watch it, then comes Nanoha, but let’s focus. It’s around 1939, there’s war with the Neuroi ( random invading monster it seems ) and women wear no pants…I thought at first,well ,cos they can’t use the strike thing ( propeller things that go on the legs ) but no woman seems to wear pants…some wear dresses or yukatas or the like, but most just..well ,don’t. So they have magical power and combat these Neuroi,form squads and what not ( I now see why people compared KanColle to this one,only in that aspect tho ) so the story is simple, yes it is ecchi,since they wear no pants.


I am growing accustomed to it ,most of the time I can’t take them seriously,cos they are talking big and being all stiff and sad..then camera pans,and there are no pants…hahaha it must be quite cool tho!! Man..I wish I could do that in summer.

There’s a bunch of girls,so I am only now getting their names right, ahm I like Sanya and Eila ,they seem the only two that could be an actual couple ( the doujin is strong within this series..but then we have Strike witches : red witches, which is made by same manga author must be canon right, there the yuri is much more clear!! Although with other girls, good read ,go for it ) the rest..I don’t know yet, I’m on episode 7 of the first season ( another season,3 OVAS,a movie and apparently a third season is on the way,so it’s gonna be a while ) but we’ll see,so far characters are very likeable, it’s fun,not too serious,not too goofy, and besides the fact it’s beyond panty shots, since no one wears kinda get used to it,so it’s not tooo echhi.


So far so good, don’t dismiss it just because of the pantless environment, it is actually good fun. I’ll let ya know more.
