Yoshika Miyafuji spends her days peacefully after returning to her hometown. Her former superior officer Mio Sakamoto and others arranged for Yoshika to study abroad at a medical school in Europe. Yoshika returns to Europe with Shizuka Hattori, who was Sakamoto's student at the naval academy. As Yoshika returns to Europe and new signs of Neuroi emerge, the other former members of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, who were scattered in various locations, also begin to gather again. A powerful Neuroi then appears before Yoshika and Shizuka.

8/10 for Eila,
6/10 for the rest of the movie,
7/10 overall (it was good).

Like the 12 episode chibi-style spin-off series that came before it, this movie is a comical redo of the actual Strike Witches Movie. While 12-episode series was highly condensed and comical throughout, this movie has much slower pacing and thus doesn't feel as funny. Otherwise this is exactly what you'd probably expect from the film. :)
(That said, if you've found this randomly please watch the original series and then the movie / OVAs first! There are a lot of characters in this film and you won't have time to appreciate any ...
