I knew this would come, but I had thought it would happen in some dramatic fashion over some life-and-death moment at some high octane battle instead of this hopping pantsu-thief dance on a breezy summer day. Moreover, I had expected only one to go the way of Britney, Paris, and Lindsay, but to my (pleasant) surprise, we got four:
Of course, there are other eye openers in the episode. Plenty of panties, enough to rival the first episode; and when the girls were keeping their beavers covered, they did so with another girl’s panty. Oh the chase, the switch, and the tug, I feel dirty…
But, the best moment for me was—like how the best horror shows are those that implies rather than shows—when Minna, realizing Yoshika was not wearing any panty, immediately offered up hers and pulled her panty down in front of everyone in the room. Yoshika’s reaction spoke it all.
As to the big bad Neuroi of the week, there was none. Nevertheless, Strike Witches 7 did not feel much different from the other episodes. This goes to show how superfluous those Neuroi’s are. The fan services are all nice, but do they have to shove aside the plot, which does have potential with its heavy parallelism with WWII events and characters?
