The way they did this season, can not be redeemed by the last episode. Silver Link definitely isn't ok.
However whatever this Eilanya episode will be, I'm gonna judge independently and that might still be QUALITY as well, which I god hope it will not be.

I never joke about writing quality. BW had a lot of good stand alone episodes and Karibuchi's character arc was cool. It was disappointing that most of the other witches didn't get as much development, but that doesn't take away from what we did get.

Episode 13: The Grand Petersburg Strategy

This is a story of what happened between Brave Witches 7th and 8th episodes.

December 26th - the day after Saturnalia.
After resupplying the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing, Pilot Officer Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen and Lieutenant Sanya V. Litvyak decide to stay at the Petersburg base on break until the new year.
But, while the two have fun spending time with the members of the 502nd, news of a Neuroi attack comes in.

"Eila-san, you're really fired up!"
"Hikari, this is how you dodge an attack."
"Do you remember the first time we flew through the night sky with Yoshika-chan?"

Now, two original members of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing team up with the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing on a common front and "The Grand Petersburg Strategy" unfolds!!

The writing was good, it's the animation that sunk. Also, Silver Link is a shit studio that didn't pay Victory Arrow's animation director so no wonder no one wanted to work with them. We can only hope they'll change yet again studio for the next instalment.
>>
>>151520706
Let's agree to disagree then, as much there's not really point to it convince otherwise given how much people have been pointing out flaws in the writing weekly. Rall didn't even get her own episode, that alone is fucking terrible writing to me.

>>151520780
Ohh, a tie-in filler episode at the base during last week of the year and a battle together with Eilanya. Can't wait.
But they didn't give any date for the airing whatsoever?

Didn't that turn out to be false? It was another one of those things were nips on 2chan or whatever took it out of proportions, when in reality he was just giving a warning of being careful with your contracts or some shit.
>>
>>151521048
I'm sure he was paid in the end, but either way he decided not to work with them again which is a shame. Also, I thinks Sanzigen too had some problems. They have three animation studios and I don't think a single series (Bubuki) was enough for them to turn down the job.

I hate to admit it because I was super hyped for Brave Witches, but it just lacks charm.

I just thought about what made Strike Witches so enjoyable to watch.
It wasn't witches fighting Neuroi.
It wasn't excessive fanservice.
No.
It was Erica teasing Barkhorn.
It was Mio going crazy on alcohol.
It was Lucchini stealing panties and riling everyone up.
It was Perrine getting angry at Yoshika's clumsiness.
It was Yoshika's happy face fondling sleeping Shirley's naked boobs.
It was Eila teasing Perrine.
It was Sanya's song at night.
It was Lynne gaining more confidence.
It was Minna being a gentle and firm mother for her squad.

As much as I like the characters in Brave Witches, their overall interactions felt dull, superficial. They aren't a family like the 501st.
>>
>>151523889
Sunk? Did they? Because as far I know we won't know BD sales till February when the first two volumes are out. Till then it's just memes and speculations.

>>151523932
Read the thread, we're getting episode 13 at some point.
>>
>>151523974
The preorders give us an idea of how well it will sell. If it's true they're going to change much of the CG there could be a boost, but as it stands now it will hardly reach 6k.
>>
>>151523943
Amen.

http://moca-news.net/article/20161229/2016122902130a_/01/
>>
>>151523943
And it all boils down to the writing, 502nd has a lot going for them as a squad but this season didn't manage to bring forth almost any of it in good light properly to make it a memorable and interesting season with lots of fun moments, like the ones you mentioned. How some people don't see and get this, is beyond me.

>>151524088
The Stalker preorders? None of that is worth anything, they were really wrong this season for multiple shows and continue to be, not good indicator of anything whatsoever.

>>151524133
>This episode 13 is scheduled to be released at the theater, and it is included in Blu-ray & DVD Vol. 7.
Huh, a theater release? That hopefully means good quality, it pretty much does sound like ''OVA4'' now to me. And only then on BD later, so with the current dates, that'll be somewhere around summer?

There is only 480p on CR at the moment for some reason.

>>151524318
The preorders are usually wrong for the Animate series aimed at fujoshis who usually don't even preorder.

As for BW sales I'm conflicted, I hope it won't sell well so they'll know the fans won't buy any shit they throw at us, but on the other hand it could also mean they won't animate others JFWs.
>>
>>151524552
even that would be OK as long as I don't have to watch it on CR's website, I am visiting family & the connection here sucks, also the screen on my laptop has low resolution so 720p would be unnecessary anway

>>151524318
>How some people don't see and get this, is beyond me.
I don't disagree with anything you said, but I still liked what they gave us instead. Hikari's story was enough to keep me interested and the other witches did a good role as secondary characters. It's by no means a great anime, nor is it nearly as good as SW,
but it's not bad either. I'd give it a 6/10.

I think the only difference is that you had greater expectations than me for the show and therefore you fell more frustrated that it's not a great show.
>>
>>151524552
Seems to be fixed now. Hoping for rips soon.
>>
Is this like a sequel to strike witches? Is it a good /ak/ series or should i not bother with it
>>
>>151526657
6/10 sounds about right for this.
Certainly, there were some expectations in me while I usually try not to have them when watching anything, witches are just too dear to not have them deep down, especially after such fun that were the previous seasons.

>>151526813
It's a spinoff, set in between S1 and 2 of SW seasons, about another squadron 502nd, while the former were about 501st. It's not a good show, but it's not fuck nothing either if you like cute girls, guns and alternative crazy ww2 setting. Just go watch the original stuff first, they're worth it definitely and see if you like em.

It's such a shame that this season was surprisingly lackluster compared to SW. Bad CG and no Rall episode is a few of the many things Silver Link did wrong.
I'm really looking forward to Ep 13 seeing how likely it's the Eilanya OVA I've always wanted. I just hope SL doesn't screw that up somehow.
>>
>>151519970
Too bad the CGI is utter shit.

Hope whichever shit company did that bankrupts and all their staff die in a fire.

Damn thing is too rushed. How the hell does Hikari run so fast and so far within a few minutes?

Too fake.

Makes me think that the delay for one ep caused whoever wrote this to change everything.

Hikari is still great, though.

It wasn't very well executed most of the time though, the models themselves were lacking and the lighting, but they pulled off nice shots otherwise. And there was some over-use where CGI really wasn't needed, like pic related.

On the whole I liked the series, I like the different direction SL took it especially in the mid-part, and the small additions almost as a nod to fans such as the tank witches and aurora. Hoping the BD improvements give this series what it deserves

Holy goddamn hell this finale episode was atrociously bad. Especially the first part of it. The whole segment of Takami using her Absolute Eye and us somehow supposed to be surprised at the fact 502nd would help supporting her in use of it is just what tier writing. And her rushing in to use it without telling others first in combat is just what? Hikari running on about ''I must stop her.'' when Takami literally has now 8 witches besides her to support her in use of Absolute Eye is weird dumb shit.
800mm AP round being nullified midair by some neuroi cloud miasma was hilarious.
The battle choreography and visuals of the final battle were abysmally bad, literally no idea what the hell was going on other than the fact things were being shot at and witches were going forward while bad cgi was everywhere. If anything, Naoe becoming the much needed AP witch shell destroyer was amazing development. Well with that, Hikari is now part of 502nd till the end of war, we didn't get to see Mia in the end but at least they showed Aurora existing. S2 seems very likely for some point.

While there are less crotchbutt shot shoved in every scene which is commendable, the series overall story feels weak. MC has less magic higher stamina, but they fail to make it interesting enough. Naoe punch should've been a hot blooded scene, with hikari and naoe shouting before unleashing her punch. I wish the end episode animated like some hot blooded fighting mecha anime.

How in the world could they fuck up this bad? This stands in the pantheon of Kancolle anime level bad.

I can -somewhat- forgive Kancolle as the lore of the game was pretty loose in the first place and so many things had to be supplemented by the writers on the spot. But for the 502nd anime, they were literally given high grade ingredients and years worth of recipes to follow. How could the end product turn up this bad?

The 502nd is a zany ragtag bunch. Their functional dysfunctionality is their selling point as a unit. They're a gallery of colorful fuckups with lots of character. There's a reason why they're the next most popular wing after the 501st. And you see almost none of that in the anime. Again, given the stuff they had at hand here, how in the world did they fuck it up?
>>
I want to ride Hikari too.

>But for the 502nd anime, they were literally given high grade ingredients and years worth of recipes to follow. How could the end product turn up this bad?

In cooking, no matter how good your ingredients are and how well structured your recipe is, one rogue ingredient can fuck things up horribly.

In this case, the Karabuchi Sisters.

Much of the spotlight that should've gone to the 502nd proper went to those two sisters. If the director really wanted to wave his boner for the two sisters around, he really should've just made an entirely new anime focusing on them or made a 508th anime as most of the stuff regarding that wing is still in the dark and will allow a lot of maneuvering ground for the anime.

In any case, have fun because Hikari is now a canon member of the 502nd who was totally there all this time despite years of material indicating that they're an 8 member unit.

I look forward to the 503rd anime some years down the line where Yuno isn't the MC, but rather, some brand new Fuso Witch whom everyone in the 503rd will immediately love.
>>
>>151537008
BD's in few months. Till then.

>>151537049
Something we will never get answer to from the producers or SL, ever. The disappointment levels are higher than Everest with this season. Worst feeling is that Hikari is now officially, canonically part of 502nd, instead of returning to Fuso in the end. Look at how 'canon' I am now! I mean, I friggin love her, but goddamn it do I hate the writing here and director's obsession of creating his OC donut steel characters for the anime seasons.
>>
If they made Sadako MC, alot of the problems would've been fixed.

And I like the 501st as much as the next guy, but really, the episodes involving them were detrimental to the anime. It seemed like they didn't really know where to take things and just threw in previous cast cameos just because they fucking can in the 502nd anime.

Oh wait, calling it a "502nd" anime is rather generous. I mean the "Karabuchi Sisters anime feat. some appearances by the 502nd."

I disagree, a good chief can make it work, the problem is we got the most incompetent fucks possible who didn't know how to cook. You can have other character episodes with Hikari along for the ride and helping her develop while solving their own personal problems. But they didn't do that.

So will 501st ever get more animated material?

I find it strange how the movie teased it at the end, but we ended up with other Witches getting animated first (not that I mind, as I enjoyed some of them more than the 501st despite less interactions with eachother).
>>
>>151547062
None of us are in the production committee. Maybe.
The movie teased in the end only that the story of witches is to be continued later, not necessarily 501st. Also, by the movie's timeline the war is at its end anyways.
And you just forgot that the three OVA episodes that came after movie were about 501st.

Yeah the team has been mostly the same, writing is simply easy to mark as bad since that it is, when in fact behind the scenes the producers can decide whatever they want. Who knows what drafts they had and what was scrapped in the light of getting the end result that is this now.

Final Verdict:
While we are grateful to have another story of the other joint strike division, the story is not interesting as the 2nd season of Strike Witches 501st. To add the damage, the 3D animation and the 2D animation doesn't merge seamlessly. 6 out of 10

Why is that baffling? The merchandise sells like hotcakes, this is capitalism. This whole season was essentially effortless fanservice: the season.
No need to put in any effort anymore when you're making mad profit even then, granted this season seemed to be in development limbo hell for many years since it was announced three damn years ago originally.

Yeah, they gutted the fanservice but didn't actually replace it with anything. That said, I suppose you can count Sanya and Eila, tank witches and Aurora as fanservice, but those few moments weren't enough to redeem the series.

>>

I am not the original poster.
Assuming that you are not baiting..
Strike Witches doesn't have a one dimensional character storyline. In fact, most of the characters are forced to leave a comfort zone in order to protect the one that they love. Hint: Eila, Erica and nearly everyone else. In Brave Witch, they stay at their own area of speciality.
>>
>>151563369
Let's see, everything? S1 ep6 is still the best episode from the entire franchise so far and ep7 is one of the funniest just to name episodes in general, the finale was pretty damn badass arc and well done.
The character interactions as well the neuroi fights too. SW looks like a masterpiece when compared to BW.

>>151563959
We don't know, maybe.

>>151564100
They can and will. But hey, Raisa got cameo in S2 credits with just single spoken line, and then later she got to star in ova 2, so chances are there.

>>151564145
Not for retarded posts like yours.
>>
>>151564096
>characters
A highly dubious claim. SW's characters are for sure more memorable, but then again they've had 8 years, 2 seasons, a movie, a series of OVAs, several manga series etc. to build that up. BW has had exactly 1 season so far. Overall it's hard to say, personally I think SW has a few standout characters but BW doesn't have any of the shitty ones that SW does.
>locations and worldbuilding
How? Elaborate. All SW was was a bunch of girls sitting on an island drinking tea, BW was about the gritty eastern front which a lot of people had been asking for. I say BW did this aspect far better.
>fight choreography
Yes, because static shots and neuroi that fire beams while moving in a straight line every episode were really exciting. Fight choreography was far more interesting in BW as was the directing in terms of shots and angles. You had improvised bows and all sorts of goofy nonsense, while in SW the fights were all pretty much the same.
>soundtrack
The only one I could consider giving you, though the soundtrack in BW was good as well.
>2D animation and effects
Have you seen SW season 1 since it came out?
>>
>>151564195
That's not so much a criticism as it is a statement. I think Sasha, Hikari and Naoe certainly did leave their comfort zone but even so, why is that a bad thing?

The 502nd also had a decent amount of backstory and building up, then the anime shat all over it with muh genki Fuso MC.
>>
>>151564514
Compared to the brave witches who have a very flat development, strike witches is more complex and crazy gang fun family.
You are entitled to your opinion if you think brave witches is as good as strike witches, but certainly you are in minority side.
>>
>>151564659
aka we don't have a good creative writer, so we will only focus on genki Hikari
>>
>>151564659
>>151564708
Well, I had a whole wall of text typed up in reply but it got swallowed up so fuck this shit. Let's just say I completely disagree on SW having decent writing (Brave Witches was bad in this sense too but still better) but agreeing that it would've been better without Hikari (who was still better than Yoshika though). Also, I'm only a minority on these specific threads on /a/ where the main whiners are a cancerous namefag, a guy who complains about lack of loli and a guy who complains about lack of butts. BW is actually doing well outside this circlejerk.

>>151564964
Tells me more about these threads, to be honest. Metaposting, whining and autistic circklejerking. And then you have people wondering why people don't post in these anymore. I've also avoided BW threads for most of this season despite liking it a lot and being an OG SW fan who used to post in love threads for many years. A few cunts have taken over and it's really painful to try and read these things nowadays. Just popped in to state my opinion now that the series actually ended.

Having a true core within a core was dumb anyway. It would have been a lot better if they just had multiple cores in different locations for redundancy.

They actually didn't as far I'm aware.
Anon translated all the abilities before the season began from the official site here; http://helma.us/sw/res/8815.html#11655 and they didn't give out anything after to her abilities.
>>
>>151567502
>Shoot all the cores
>It explodes
>Go home
At least the core in the core makes it harder to do the job.
>>
>>151567550
Not really. An 800mm magic shell is a big explosion, a direct or near hit on the exterior core should have destroyed the true core as well. Even just place a true core inside a core is a good way to get it accidentally destroyed when the witches go for the exterior core.

If cores are spread around the neuroi, then you have to split your forces to hit all of them at relatively the same time. This is a far more difficult task then just basically attacking the same place all over again.

Well Rossman didn't get a true episode along with Rall. Maybe if season 2 does happen we'll get something since they can get leeway.
>>
>>151567719
Most likely the the exterior core acts as a shield to keep the real core from getting damaged like a giant ballistic vest where it mitigates the force of the attack.

S2 would make more sense if they'd at least put more effort into the other characters who would be important in a S2 if it tries to be anything worthy of matching up to SW.
