Strike Witches

Others have already posted on this brief OVA, so I won't get too heavy into it, but I will say two things:

1) This is the greatest eight minutes, 54 seconds of anime EVER.

2) I was surprised to see Narue in the show:
So THAT'S what happened after 'World of Narue' came to an end, eh?

The animation is great, the girls are cute, the setup is completely preposterous, Stonehenge is the airfield, how much more perfect could it be? Please, if there is a kami-sama, let there be more Strike Witches.
If this is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

1 I do not wish for more of it. It's too perfect, any milking will reduce it.

"Preposterous" is the word I was looking for, but my command of the language failed me.

2 If it's perfect and complete, then obviously someone's going to try to do a full 26-episode series.

I have to say that the inclusion of the animal ears on the girls is great. Lessee, "mekomimi"? Maybe?

3 I downloaded this one based on some of the publicity I saw a while back, and...

"EWWWWWW! It's kawaii! Get it off me! Noooooooooooooooooo! It burns, it burns!"

I didn't think a silly OVA about little girls turning into airplanes to fight a war could be cute, but really, this one deserves a place of honor over at Don's place.

4 Yes! Ubu falls as well! All must bow to the mighty greatness of Strike Witches!

5 I wasn't going to blog any more about the subject, but it suddenly occured to me where Saburo Sakai was hiding, and then... But I suspect alone we can't create a surge any more than 20,000 troops in Baghdad. We need leadership.

6 Okay, Pete's been hitting the cold medication a leeetle too hard I think...

7 Maybe I have.

Anyone thinks that the scene in the woods was a parody of Star Wars ep.6?

8 I don't think it was a parody as such, I just think that "flying through trees" has become a visual cliche. (Mio slices a couple of trees with her katana; I don't recall Luke doing anything like that with his light saber.)

9 I just noticed that Rie Tanaka voices Lt.Col. Wilcke. Holy smokes. I'd never guess. With Chiba Saeko et.al. it's a star-studded cast of grand total 5 seiyu...

11 It seems to be a variant form of a "Fliegerfaust".
