Strike Witches 2-ki 08

Strike Witches 2-ki

Hurr, Forced Upgrades episode.

I have to admit, they did some things right with this episode, but it’s hard to ignore the elephant in the room that is Miyafuji’s sudden Heroic RRoD and subsequent Reboot all the in the span of the episode. Probably because they left the cause unexplained way until the end in the form an exposition one-liner. And it was a Power Overgrowth thing too. Would’ve been better if they made it a little more drawn-out over maybe two episodes instead of blatantly rushing it in. Not to mention the lack of OP this week made me thought they were going for a Wham Episode, preferably with people dying or something.

Ah but in any case, good fodder for Yoshika x Lynne Girls Love.

By the way, did anyone notice her new Striker Unit comes with Variable Wings? It shrunk back to the old Striker unit wings’ size after Yoshika took out the Neuroi.

    Funny, replace Yamato with Excelsior, Yoshika with Noriko and prototype striker with giant robot and you have GunBuster!

    “By the way, did anyone notice her new Striker Unit comes with Variable Wings? It shrunk back to the old Striker unit wings’ size after Yoshika took out the Neuroi.”

    Hmm, maybe it’s just animation error. Oh, and her new Striker Unit is based on the Shinden prototype fighter.

    Anyway, can we put Kanye’s song (or Daft Punk) because Yoshika’s gone “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”?

    Kurogane, this episode was clearly a Strike Witches version of Top Gun.

    I thought stuff going boom when she tried to use it made it quite clear early on, what the reason was. It was actually the first thing I thought of, when her striker unit poofed in the training fight with Perrine. Blowing up the broom was just extra confirmation. Didn’t end like I thought it would, though. I expected her to be able to fly after using up lots of energy for the healing. They could’ve ordered her one of those fancy jet prototypes afterwards. Instead that that new Fuso unit just appeared out of nowhere… Oh well. Works too.

    Actually more like good fodder for Yoshika x Big Boobs Love – verily she and Yagami Hayate are kindred spirits!
