As New Year’s Eve draws closer, preparations for a holiday party are underway in Petersburg. In anticipation of the event, Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing is determined to take Sanya V. Litvyak on a leisurely walk around the city. However, despite Eila's best intentions, she gets interrupted every time she gets a chance to ask Sanya out, ruining the moment and separating the girls. To make things worse, a Neuroi is approaching the base, threatening both the squadmates and the celebration in Petersburg.

Brave Witches: Petersburg Daisenryaku (2017)

Firstly, try to watch this between episode 7 and 8 like it says you should since it is literally between that time period.

This one focuses on the events after episode 7 with Sanya V. Litvyak and Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen.

As you would expect an episode with Sanya the best girl of the franchise it was always going to be great.

It is nice to see the relationship between Eila and Sanya expanded and to see the girls interacting with them.

You get the same art as expected with less of the weird CGI. You do get some nudity in this ...

It's not often that a special manages to be more enjoyable and outright better than the show itself, but in my eyes, this special episode of Brave Witches is an exception. After loving both seasons of Strike Witches, I found Brave Witches to be pretty disappointing.

Mixed Feelings
This OVA special is particularly disappointing if you expected it to focus on Hikari and the rest of the Brave Witches 502nd Squadron.

Nope, instead, this OVA is actually a bonus episode of Strike Witches disguising itself with the Brave Witches title, featuring Eila and Sanya, the popular pairing from the original Strike Witches anime. The rest of the "main cast" take a backseat this episode.

Technically this episode takes place between roughly around episodes 7 and 8, but I don't think it would work watching it in chronological order, because this standalone episode disrupts the flow of Brave Witches' primary story.

While I am a ...
