WAR IS PANTS! THESE GIRLS FIGHT IN THEIRS, SO WE CAN STAY IN OURS. In 1939, a great war began in the skies. Enigmatic and brutal, the alien Neuroi have devastated nation upon nation, crushing conventional military forces. To survive, desperate countries band together to field aerial combat units of young girls capable of using magic. Armed with new technology and weapons enhanced by their powers, these flying aces, called Strike Witches, form the best defence against the invaders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Cheeky Pantsy Fun 2 July 2014
Format:DVD
If you love young ladies who activate their witchiness by growing fluffy ears and a bushy tail, before flying around the sky and trying to shoot alien spacecraft with world war 2-era guns and/or the occasional samurai sword - then this is for you.

An added bonus, if you like that sort of thing, is regular and increasingly creative shots of the girls flashing their 'pantsu'. Of course, the plot requires for them to be wearing no trousers*, so they can fit their legs into their witchy broomstick apparatus.

The plot is your standard 'young girl with abundance of raw talent joins more experienced crew and overcomes adversity and jealousy by saving the day on several occasions whilst learning and growing throughout the series' type-set-up. But as ever, it's in the delivery, the dialogue, the sheer joy and fun and (quite literally) cheekiness of the thing that sets this apart.

All the characters are archetypes of their nationalities - I wouldn't say parodies, you just have to enter into the joyous silliness of the premise as a whole.

Plus, hot pants. :)

* apart from the French one, who seems to always be wearing tights. For those of us who like to see a lady in tights, I guess.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 19 Mar 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I will start off by saying this was a very good idea for an anime as well as being very well animated. I didn't give it the full 5 stars because although it is funny and enjoyable it is lacking a little bit in plot, especially the last 2 episodes.

Although it is not going to make my top 10 list of anime it is still very good and worth the money. 4/5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff 10 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After findig out about this series and it's content, I decided to buy this set. It found out to be great.
Set contains 12 episodes in 2 discs, in original Japanese & English dub. Can't say anything on the dubbing quality, as original voices is the choice for me.
One thing that bothers me is that all episodes are put into 1 long title and episode selection is for selecting an episode at which point the whole title will play to the end. If that won't bother you then go ahead and buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome anime 27 Mar 2014
By MikeK
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well animated and dubbed. Story is (alternative reality take) on fighting against alien invaders and you'll get to know all the characters quickly and easily. Like other reviews will explain (as well as I could so I won't repeat it) this is not aimed at younger children!
