Around the the 37th year of the Meiji Era (1904) in the midst of the Russo-Japanese war, the small Japanese army, in need of assistance, uses its special flying (thanks to a benevolent demon) ship, the Amanohara, to attack Russia's major base at Port Arthur (Lushun).

Umakai Shintaro, a Russian diplomat originally from Japan, defects and goes to Sapporo to teach at a girls academy. However, that girls academy is not typical - it is on board the Amanohara, and the five girls Shintaro teaches are known as the Raimu Unit - girls with the ability to summon powerful beings to fight for them. Shintaro eventually becomes their teacher and general in battle, and so the six embark on a weird and excessively erotic journey, as Shintaro helps the girls overcome their weaknesses, become stronger for the final stand at Lushun, and also understand the motives of the "Russian Spiritual Corps" that assist the opponent, which, unfortunately, has one member whom Shintaro knew well...

Lime Colored War Tales is what you would end up with if Strike Witches was made by a group of teenaged boys. It is the embodiment of a pure harem ecchi anime, but not in a good way.

Though this is a horrible show, I will admit that I found the characters to be endearing and interesting and that I enjoyed their interactions (at least, in the comedy scenes) and the histories given for each of the characters. With such a terrible plot, it's a good thing that much of the show focuses on the characters and their pasts, because I found each of the girls read more

Both have groups of powerful girls managed by a bishonen glasses-sporting older man who's not as strong as they are.
