Strike Witches episode 1 ~ No pants FTW!

ALL HAIL BRIT…wait…wrong series…

So this is Gonzo’s 3rd series that is being streamed on Youtube, Crunchyroll and BOST TV the same day as they are released. This has been yet another series I have been looking forward to ever since it was announced which bears a funny resemblance to Sky girls (in fact, the two series are connected by a red line of fate /cheese). Gonzo being Gonzo though it is only natural that people are still skeptical about their titles no less when such news like these, but despite that I hold nothing against them unlike others (and in fact love them the gem series that they produce, Seto no Hanayome being one of the best to date).

But enough of the ranting and to bring you the first blog (lies) to post a whole episode with subs (as I am too laz…I mean busy to screencap).

Apparently it has been deleted? O.o

Thoughts: The episode itself was rather impressive for me to say the least. Here I was expecting something that may become Sky girls quality (I can’t say I was too impressed with what we got as I expected some more action other than mostly slice of life) but in actualy fact the service of this is not only greater but rather “creative”. How many series can you name that have nearly all of the cast wander around pantless and wear school swimsuits like the latest fashion. But not only was that a difference, storywise it seems to be shaping up to be something a lot more exciting than Sky girls (of course it is too early to tell yet but at least here, they aren’t afraid to show their guns and blast the living sh*t out of some WORMS…I mean Neuroi).

The characters also are something worthy of note. I like them is pretty much all I have to say which isn’t much but yet another good sign that this series is heading in the right direction. Mio Sakamoto is full of eyepatch moe (and in actual fact she isn’t blind in that eye mind you) but it is her voice actor Saeko Chiba, which makes her appeal so much to me…oh and the lack of pants.
Though at the end of the day I just can’t wait to hear more of delicious Tanaka Rie because her few lines in this episode just hit the spot.

This is a great start to a new series for this summer and quite a nice replacement after the big O’ tower.
