Both series are designed by Mecha Musume creator Shimada Humikane. While Strike Witches is WWII oriented and focuses around magical girls with flying units on their legs, Sky Girls takes a modern approach with uniformed girls in exoskeletons. Both series have the girls fighting an unknown alien opponent with the best of their available technology though Sky Girls takes a more serious approach to the story while Strike Witches is shorter and more relaxed in it's atmosphere.
Sky Girls and Strike Witches shares the same genre with a fairly similar setting.
Both are series about Lolis flying mecha, or mecha based objects.
Both feature strike forces of self-propelled flying lolis defending the planet from an alien threat. Similarly, these girls are around the same ages with similar character interaction and costuming between series.
The girls are around the same age. In both shows, they come from different continents. Only girls are able to use the equipment in both shows, however, the guys do try to create aircraft that will outdo the girls' abilities. The enemy are an alien species that have many different forms in both shows. Both series are military anime. Both main lead girls have some sort of tie to the equipment, making it easy for them to use.
They have a similar feel to them, so if you like one, I'm sure you'll like the other ;D
Both of these anime contain a group of girls which fly though the sky with the help of new techology with the intention of helping people and the destruction of an alien force which threatens to destroy the world. Sky girls is more serious while Strike Witches has more of an comedy element and includes the use of magic.
both are about a squadron of flying girls
I am one of the biggest fans of Shimada Humikane's artwork and mecha musume in general and even I thought Sky Girls was terrible. Seriously, do yourself a favor and go watch Strike Witches. It's Sky Girls done right.
Girls using technology to fly and fight off a invasion.
The girls are also very close to each other or become close over the course of the series.
And in both the main character needs to transfer because of the airforce.
In both series, there are young girls who has the responsibility and power to stop an invasion. It is up to them to stop the violence and eradicated the threat.
Both series' main character also shares a bond of friendship and are willing to help others in need.
Both series contains action, drama, and some fan service. Most of that action takes place in the form of aerial combat as the girls in both series uses advanced technology to combat their foe.
Both have 3 girls who pilot mecha over seaside towns. Otoha and Madoka are both cheerful. Ichijo and Lan are serious, and Karen and Muginami are both kinda ditzy.
Both these series involves female pilots/combatants soaring through the sky to protect what they believe in. Both series contains characters of unique personalities. Friendship and struggles are also explored as episodes progresses on.
There is action, comedy, drama, and later some romance (in Sky Girls) present for these two series. The soundtrack of both of these anime(s) are also something to take a note of.
Although one is land based fighting, and the other is air based, they are both about girls that are experts in handling their heavy artillery that most would think only guys would be interested in. Also, even though both have competitions to show off their skills, Sky Girls is much more than that - these girls are actually involved in a war.
GuP is much lighter than Sky Girls. If you loved GuP, you will adore Sky Girls. If you liked Sky Girls, you'll love GuP. I do think that Sky Girls is better, however they are both good anime series ;D
Even though Jinki: Extend is more serious, both of these series are about girls piloting mecha. If you've watch Jinki: Extend then watch Sky Girls to make you feel better.
