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.

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. It wasn't terrible or anything, but the zany shenanigans that used to take place in Strike Witches were conspicuously absent, replaced instead with straightforward Neuroi fights that weren't that interesting most of the time.

The special gives us a very cute and funny story centering around Eila and Sanya, two fan favorite characters from the original series. It was a ...

I've been waiting for this special to be released subbed online since it aired back in May in Japan. I'll admit that I forgot about it for a bit, but after finally seeing it was uploaded subbed about 2 weeks ago, and putting it off unintentionally for a a while, I watched it. Just wow!

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.

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 ...
