Fair story & action with too-young cutie warriors
24 July 2016 | by ajrcvrSee all my reviews

Well, "Strike Witches" has a fairly good idea for drama and action, but you do have to get past its preeminent peculiarity, and that is that the warrior witches are all females who look, act, and sound like 10 year olds, but have D cup boobs - some a little less, some a little more - and do these grown-up things. If the creators had made them all 20 year olds, it would have been more believable - you know, like a real army - but having these too young kids, all of whom are scantily dressed and sometimes nude, is simply distractingly weird.

There are mysterious powerful creatures, called Neuroi, who come from who knows where that decide for who knows what reason to attack the people of Earth, and the only thing that can defeat them is the magical strike witch team. A good enough plot, if they took it more seriously and used more than sexy babies to fight them. After awhile, though, it does seem like the main purpose of the Neuroi is to be target practice for the witches. Of course, the enemy does occasionally blow up some stuff, which necessitates their destruction, and they are pretty hard to destroy. The main character is a young witch named Yoshika who commands much of the attention, but she is surrounded by several witch-mates who are constantly with her and are part of the action and drama. All of them get to show their stuff, not only on the battlefield, but also in the bedroom and the bathroom.

The girls are cute, if way too young (they're supposed to be early teens - which is still too young - but are really not that old looking or acting), and the action and battle scenes are decent if repetitive. The graphics and animation are fair for this kind of thing, and it is actually pleasant enough to watch these young witches go through their routines, although their transformation to witchlings with long ears and a bushy tail when using their magic is still a bit confusing, but that is also kind of cute, and in itself is not as distracting as their youth and boobs. The natural dress of nearly everybody female is bikini panties and naked legs with a kind of jacket on top - also a bit odd, but then one can only guess that the creators wanted this kind of weird look for their heroines for whatever reason. If you can get by the strangeness of the characters they created, you can probably lightly enjoy the story of fighting alien creatures for survival and find it somewhat fun to watch.
