Moved to series discussion.

And no, it doesn't. The lack of pants was really stupid and detracted a lot from an otherwise mediocre to decent story.

To me at first it was distracting the first couple episodes

but i soon realized it had no meaning, I liked it cause it was different from what I'd usually see.

Otherwise, I was surprised by the depth in characterization in a show I'd previously passed off as pedo lolicon bait.

Who are those little girls in pain, just trapped in a castle in the dark side of the moon?
Twelve of them shining brightly in vain, like flowers that blossom just once in years.
They're dancing in the shadow like whispers of love, dreaming of a place where they're free as doves.
They've never been allowed to love in this cursed cage; it's only the fairy tale they believe.

I know I'm replying to a years old post, but still I have to mention that this poster is utterly incorrect. The story was mediocre to poor, the things that made this show great were the interactions between the characters and the flying pantsu. Honestly, I wouldn't have even bothered picking this show up if not for the panties. More anime should be like this.

...Why is this even a question? :P
Because panty shots are easier when there's nothing covering them. No other reason, this show is all about the flying pantsu and is not ashamed of it.

I've only watched the first two episodes so far, and the only possible justification I've been able to figure out for no long pants would be needing skin-to-propeller-leggings contact.

But that wouldn't prevent knee length breeches.

That said, a part of me does enjoy the view, but another part of me is unhappy with it being a deliberate pandering to such an interest with no true attempt at providing in-story justification other than "it's just how everyone is dressing at that age"; I actually like plot (storyline) with my "plot", as it were.

Dakka + technomagical miniature mecha is an interesting concept in and of itself, adding cat girls + pantsu has to be an attempt to expand the sub-categories in a blatant grab for more viewers.

It might be an interesting study to try to determine if they attracted more viewers than they lost as a result.

All of that said... I haven't decided to drop it yet. Despite the negative to grudgingly neutral reviews, there is still the potential for enough character development, etc., to suite my tastes.

Other girls besides the strike witches are seen wearing no pants, only panties, such as the nurse when Barkhorn went to visit her sister.

Something that was never explained in the story is why the girls go kemono (grow animal ears and tail) whenever they use their magic power. Maybe that's why they don't wear pants, because they would get in the way. This would apply to all girls who use magic, not just the witches. For example, the aforementioned nurse might use healing magic. Speaking of which, I don't recall offhand any male characters using magic. Is magic use a female-only thing?

All that aside, I liked the story and the characters. Even if the panties were pure fanservice, it didn't detract from the story. Some may complain, but for me it's just shut up and enjoy the view.
