Yes! I get to see more of Best Girl Serebryakova and one of (if not) the best female VAs to go with her (anyone who has seen Inou Battle and disagrees with me is wrong)!

General: CHIBI WW2-era German lolis... yeah, alright.

Some of the time is spent discussing events in the main series, while the rest is spent on off duty discussions or shenanigans, and these shorts loosely follow the same chronology.

That said, except for a few episodes, this is, in my opinion, not worth watching. After finishing the main show, I went into this wanting a little something extra, and though it is meant to be ...
