It kind of left some questions unanswered. Like are the Neuroi really our enemies or friends? Is Yoshika's father still alive? etc, etc.

But all and all it was a nice series. 8/10

Should a 2nd season show up I'd gladly watch it.

Strike Witches exceeded my expectations; I didn't think I would like it at first, but I really enjoyed it. All the characters were nice and the plot turned out to be more interesting than I thought it would. Strike Witches was fun to watch.

This episode was awesome, loved the Warlock-Akagi gattai and the sweet action...
Looking forward to the second season now.

Despite the rampant fan service, use and abuse of panties, and some inconsistencies and outright oddities with the show.. I kinda liked it..

It wasn't great, but it was entertaining. Although the abuse of fan service and panties actually hurt the score in my opinion. There is a point when too much is ... too much.

7/10 overall

What happened to the alleged "good" neuroi? They focused so much on it and then it doesn't even appear in the last episode.

So they really just disband while their talents could be saving other areas? I like to keep in mind that lots of other people are dying as they do nothing, even though this anime was void of ever mentioning death other than Miyafugi's father. People do die from laser beams after all.

The show took too many "mood swings" as well. From getting really dramatic to now everything is great. As touching as the dramatic parts were, it felt much to empty, even robotic.

Maybe I over analyze things, but most of the moves of a single person flying around would usually kill someone. Like talking while flying at the speed of sound should rip your lungs open and tear your insides apart. But hey, they're magical, so what do I care that most of the stuff they do should kill them?

The fan service was the greatest thing about the anime, it's what kept me watching more than anything. If not, it's the greatest thing it had going for it other than that awesome plot twist in episode 11 when they made it a real war anime.

The biggest problem I had with the anime was censorship, I saw a lot but I'm sure that just because they are magical, doesn't make them have magical fog in front of their lower sections. Other than that they kept the boobs and ass shots, which were very nice.

Overall it's a 6.5/10. It left me to empty inside, not to mention the plot holes. If there is a season 2 then, maybe I'll raise my score.

Cool final battle, and I have to admit Miyafuji using her striker unit as a makeshift missile was a nice touch.

Nice last Episode. The whole Series gets a 9/10, even without pants. Now let's proceed to the OVA and the next season.

Great Ending!

They really pulled it off nicely at the end.

Is it just me, or did this show get epic at the end?
They could have just made it a 2 hour movie out of episodes 1, 2, 11, & 12.
It would have made a bad ass action movie!

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed everything in between, it was highly entertaining.
(Though, that's almost shameful to admit :P)

But really, was any of that really needed?
Just saying!

(7.5 to be technical, always round up)

Now I have to decide if I wait for the R1 release of season 2?
(Seeing as how I watched the R1 of season...dub and all. Great Dub btw!! FUNimation utilized their cast of women perfectly!)

Or do I utilize my CR membership even more and catch up?

Urahara Out!!

Say "Strike Witches" and you will hear "flying panties"...
We have here a aircraft carier *swimming* in the clouds! That's just epic!

I watched Strike Witches expecting panty shots with some gun fights. I got a show full of gun fights with some fan service just to keep viewers awake. I'm definitely impressed.

Pretty lackluster. For s smart sentient being is sure was stupid by doing the fusion.

Many problems throughout the series too, such as pointless filler that brought nothing, bad use of single episodes for developing characters and the plot was hardly explored, thus leading to the lackluster ending in which the Nueroi, which we also learned nothing about, being ultimately destroyed because of a human invention.

It had nice action though, fanservice was meh~good and it had a average cast of characters.

Enjoyed it quite a bit despite its shortcomings, but 6/10 at best.
Now, on to season 2.

Nice ending, the boat fusion was quite interesting and the whole victory was quite nice, but now that the hive is destroyed I wonder what the second season will be all about although I've got some ideas with the ending and the letter!

This first season was quite nice although I do still wonder the non use of pants and wearing only underpants or swimsuits and the to much focused ecchi was a bit a downer on the whole story. The story it self was strong enough to not needing to rely on ecchi stuff to attract viewers.

Either way nice final episode and a nice anime in general, lets see what's next! 7/10

I'm glad I watched this. I was just expecting an ecchi anime, but I really liked the story. The second half of the season was definitely better, and I really enjoyed the last boss fight. I laughed when the Warlocked merged with the ship. There's still the OVA, second season, and the movie. I guess I'll get started on watching those. Overall I'd give it an 7, but the story was better than expected so it's changed to an 8.

Satisfying ending, the battle between the Warlock and the Akagi was pretty amazing. Everyone is here and ready to fight that Neuroin ship.Now the ending scene with a letter from her father.... Going to watch the 2nd season of it.

8/10 the fanservice without pants was kind of distracting though. Season overall is still great imo.

Pretty typical and expected conclusion, but was still fun to watch. I was surprised that the Witches were disbanded, considering it looks like that was only the tip of the war. Gotta love that ending, the dad pulling a fast one at the very end.

Well overall I have to say that this series was quite the treat. The ost helped intensify many of the fight scenes and it was a nice package of ecchi, comedy, cute girls/cute things, and action. Definitely reminded me of Vividred Operation so now I can see why people always compare the two.

Looking forward to getting around to season 2 later this summer, 7/10

I really hope the Neuroi stuff isn't just forgotten later on the next season. That'll be a bad move to make.

When I started watching Strike Witches, my expectations weren't really high.
I thought this was just about fanservice and random action, but it was surprisingly interesting!
The characters were likeable, too.

Nice anime all in all. There are still a lot of questions about the Neuroi... I'm totally looking forward to S2!

Its interesting how panty shot anime that on first look looks like total waste of time can turn out to be quite entertaining. First two episodes were extremely hard to watch since you pay too much attention to panties and complaining how retarded author can be, but with every episode you notice that less and less until you completely forgot about them and then you start enjoying this show. I wish they went more into political problems. Now, time for more panty shots

Not bad but ending is too abrupt.

Wish they explained more about the Neuroi. I hope S2 will provide some answers.

An end with a bang, you find yourself catapulted into a riot of action, peppered with many fight scenes never seen before and twists galore. The clashes' choreography is quite good, animations and drawings do not fail, showing a very good quality. The finish is unsettling. Although the anime series, could not live up to other anime series most earnest, Strike Witches, however, he manages to show that he is as bad as the plot and action.

7/10 --> 8/10

Interesting that they ended up disbanded anyways, but there was another letter from Yoshika's father at the end. Seems like the ending doesn't know what it wanted to be, if it wanted to be 'final' or leave room for a sequel.

Well, I wonder what they did in the second season (and the recent alternative version, Brave Witches).

Geez, this could've been fun.. what's worst is having a totally annoying protagonist who's preachy as hell, but is always correct! I really enjoyed the first episode, but I really dislike protagonist like Miyafuji, who does things based on her guts and/or intuition. I totally didn't like the whole twist near the end, making the "good side" turn out to be "bad". Miyafuji's insistence to get herself involved is nice, very admirable, but if this wasn't an anime, that would've been the worst decision a leader could've made by getting her, a newbie involved. If this wasn't a fiction, her involvement would've been a hindrance rather than you know, she's so talented she'd contribute regardless.

I also am not a fan of story that challenges your suspension of disbelief, by wanting to tell a serious story at the end of the series, but not taking the Neuroi seriously in the first half of the series. I guess there's a reason this series only has a rating of 7.14.

That was a fast ending though, they fought the warlock, defeated all neurois, disbanded and Yoshika's father is alive. Hmm.

Overall it was heavy on the fanservice but I liked the characters, the no pants policy on the girls kinda made me not take it seriously.
