Synopsis

When an alien force eventually called the "Neuroi" attacks Earth around the 1940s, the world is devastated by destruction. However, one man is able to lead the invention of an anti-Neuroi weapon known as the "Striker unit" which augments magical power and also enables flight through two mechanical lower-leg coverings known as a sort of witches "broom." Young witches from around the world are gathered together to fight back in a force known as Strike Witches. The inventor, however, was thought to have been killed during service. The daughter of the inventor leads a relatively normal life except for her untrained and incredible magical power which she hopes to use one day in healing. However, she is suddenly whisked away on a search to see if her father is actually alive. She encounters his invention and the possibility of perhaps using it herself.

Don't be fooled by this OVA's incredibly low rank - the truth is that this show is actually just 7 minutes long, with the rest of the video being a more detailed explanation about the show, such as Striker Units, weapons, the base on the island, and some of the other characters. So naturally, this is going to sink to the bottom of the list.

However, this short OVA is an excellent way to introduce people to the world of Strike Witches. I think what I like best about this short snippet is that there aren't any obvious ecchi shots. Maybe a bath read more

I watched this Ova after i watched two of the later seasons of Strike Witches. And I was pleasently surprised.

Story 7/10
Although the story is rather short, there are many things explained in details, which I didn't see in the longer anime show. Finally a load of new things actually started to make sense to me. The weapons, the places. Finally something more then just ridiculous amounts of shear fanserwis and nothing else. It was actually a good introduction to the universe and my view about Strike Witches has changed. I am willing to check out the manga and novels now.

Art 6/10
The art is worse then read more

Recommendations

it's set in the WW2 instead of the WW1 and it takes place in Galia (France)
Both feature young girls in a military-scene who fly through the air with heavy machinery doing their jobs. Also, both both started out as OAVs and have (or going to) anime series.
