About Strike Witches Season 1 Blu-ray/DVD SAVE Edition

This Strike Witches Season 1 collection contains episodes 1-12.

The year is 1944 and the world lives in fear of unidentified flying objects called Neuroi. With the old-boy old guard unable to thwart this deadly menace, humanity turns its desperate eyes to an aerial attack force with much nicer legs. Meet the girls of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, better known as the Strike Witches.

These darlings of the great blue yonder may not have standard issue uniforms, but they do have all the right stuff. Where the average flyboy falters, these dolls blast aliens to bits in the bat of an eyelash. With a little magic and a whole lot of leg, the girls of the 501st are winning the war on pants and aliens!

Special Features: Commentary for Episode 12.

Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.

No pants required!

by -

This is an interesting one to review.. the premise is silly, but they manage to pull of an entertaining show.
First things first.. Nobody appears to wear pants in this world.. Seriously! There are also some topless shots so if your adverse to nudity be aware.
The camera goes out of its way to highlight panties and just about every conceivable angle and in just about every shot... so you've been warned.

Down to business.. this series starts off as another Parallel universe WW2 setting where an unknown life form has invaded the planet and caused massive destruction across the globe. This has in turn subverted the usual WW2 Axis/Allies and everyone is now working together to stop the unknown threat!

The series plays out as expected with the typical end of season showdown.. and thankfully there is a season 2 to keep going and not just end on a cliff hanger!

Not a must watch.. but entertaining at least and deeper then just fan service.

Picked this series up to see if they filled the Aviation void Girls Und Panzer left open, but this was a no go.

- Too many characters with little or no back stories
- Weak plot
- Weak or unwanted Fan Service
- Random unexplained Magic

I would only recommend this series to a collector or someone who wants some interesting background Anime to play during a party.
