All 12 episodes from the second series of the Japanese anime about a crack team of young girls who take on alien invaders using magic powers. In 1939 a war began that rendered traditional military capabilities redundant. The brutal alien race Neuroi destroyed a number of cities and took control of the world. The hopes of the human survivors now rest with the so-called 'Strike Witches', a group of young girls who are sent into the skies to fight back against the aliens with their magic powers. The episodes are: 'Into the Sky Once More', 'The Legendary Witches', 'Things We Can Accomplish Together', 'Harder, Faster, Greater', 'My Romagna', 'Higher Than the Sky', 'Creeping About', 'Please Grant Me Wings', 'The Bridge to Tomorrow', '500 Overs', 'To Be Myself' and 'Beyond the Skies to Eternity'.

CAUTION, SOME NUDITY IS INVOLVED, JUST GIRLS HAVING FUN.
Contains English 5.1 & Japanese 2.0 audio. Can't say anything about dubbing quality, as Japanese it is. Subtitling is fine, but the size and placement was better in Season 1. Oh, and at least the songs in OP & ED are not subtitled as they were in the first set.
The episodes are still in one long title, without any blackness between them.See them that way by selecting Play All from main menu, but the episodes also have their own titles you can Access in Episode Selection menu, where one can play one Episode at a time.
Quality seems to be better in animation that the first time around.
If one could now find teh movie and OVA while waiting Season 3...
This twelve episode second season of the 'Strike Witches' anime is another very entertaining season. The action takes off where the previous season finished and sees the reforming of the Strike Witches as they fight against the new enemy. The animation and the voice acting of the English dub are just as good, if not better than, the previous season (the Japanese is includes as well of course). The comedy in the series is a bit hit and miss with some nicely funny moments throughout but others where it feels like it is trying a bit too much. The season also has a high amount of fanservice which won't be to everyone's tastes.
While the action of the series is very good, much of the focus of the episodes is often on the life of the Strike Witches between battles while training, shopping or trying out new equipment. There are also an interesting subplot that sees Major Sakamoto dealing with the fact that her magical power is steadily decreasing and her attempts to perfect an ultimate technique that could change the course of the war before her magic goes completely.
The only real problem I have with the season, and the series as a whole, is that I feel there are some plot points, characters and events that could have been developed better but this is only to be expected from a twelve episode season so it is only a minor irritation.Read more ›
Hmmm? Maybe they should be calling this Fan-ny Service?
I would have been happy to give this four out of five stars, but this season felt like more of an after thought,
Instead of building directly upon the previous story it seems they decided to move in a different direction,
which was a parallel to the first, "second verse same as the first verse" but don't get me wrong this is still a good series (if you can forgive the heavy fan service) I just wish they would have taken things in a more diverse direction,
But if they continue to increase the level of fan service the third season would be my last,....maybe fourth...the fifth tops I swear!....Read more ›
