- 3 Seasons
The Strike Witches is an animated television series that was created by Humikane Shimada. Each 30-minute episode follows the adventures of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing. The story begins in 1939, when the mysterious Neuroi appeared and started ravaging towns. As Neuroi attack across the globe, they spread a corrosive miasma which causes large masses of land to disappear into the oceans. No country is safe from the attacks, and the citizens are being forced into unsafe territories just to get away from the devastation. Countries are not able to combat these alien monsters alone, so all the armed forces from around the world combine together to defeat Neuroi. The most powerful team of elite fighters is the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, also known as the Strike Witches. This unit is composed of young witches from different countries, and each one has her own unique power. The unit is made up of 11 female witches and is led by Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke. Their power of magic seems to be the only thing that works against the aliens, and with a magical defense field, the Neuroi's miasma is powerless. Each Strike Witch is equipped with a powerful device that enhances her magical abilities. This unique device is strapped to their legs, which gives them power and strength beyond that of any human being. With their magical powers and super-human strength, the Strike Witches are ready for battle. In each episode, this outstanding group of young witches takes on new forces and battle monsters that seem to be unstoppable. With their knowledge of magic and devices strapped to their legs, they combat these monsters on land as well as in the air. They are the only hope that humanity has in winning this war and saving the planet.
