Add to Watchlist

Humikane Shimada originally created Strike Witches 2 as a military genre mixed media television show. Strike Witches 2 was intially a series of illustration columns that were adapted into novels, video games and eventually a anime television series. This anime television series was produced by Kazuhiro Takamura and features battle scenes that are partially grounded in history.

Set in an alternate mid-twentieth century Earth is the story of a fight to protect the earth using both combination of magic and technology. The television show uses a fictional recreation of events in World War II using national armies who, instead of fighting against each other, join forces to fight against the threat of an alien invasion and take over by the evil Neuroi. Most of the battles are representations of real confrontations that took place during World War II and the human army represents the Allied forces while the alien Neuroi represent the Axis Powers.

The Strike Witches are young women with high magical skills, who are later recruited to serve in the military organizations around the world that fight against and protect the Earth from the evil Neuroi. Their biggest challenge has come with an unprecedented invasion of Earth in 1939. The weapons of the Neuroi are very similar to aircraft weapons but normal humans have no defense against their weapons except for those who have magical powers.

The television show is all about how the armies join together to use magic and the Striker Unit Machine to enable themselves to have powers similar to that of the aliens. The Striker Unit enables the soldiers to have such powers as flight and super human strength. A defensive field near the water is also created to protect the witches from the masima (a destructive weapon field whose only weakness is that it cannot cross water) of the Neuroi as well as other Neuroi weaponry which makes them humanities' top defense against the alien invasion and their destructive weapons. The show focus on protecting coastlines such as Britain and the Italian coastline.
