Strike Witches 10: now, we’re after Neuroi crystals

Nerfed Mio is HAWT like a meek, little miko.

Ominous music, Yoshika flirting with truths that cannot be spoken of, and a mobile suit, if there aren’t the bath scene and the Perrine x Mio will it fit scene, I’d think I’m watching a different show.

Put an 'R' in there, and it would complete the witches' daily needs.

Mio wants it now, Yoshika-chan.

Mio wants it now, Yoshika-chan.

This episode alone contains more plot than the previous nine combined. From last week, we were left with two cliffhangers: will Mio survive and what will happen to Yoshika? Well, Mio gets a lot hotter with her hair down and her normal eye restored, and Yoshika thinks she’s got nine lives and pushes her luck to a whole new level by committing at least two acts of treason: violating court order to be incarcerated and defecting to the Neuroi hive.

Wait, which one is the trap??  Must know now!

OK, which of you just farted?

While it may not be a surprise that the Neuroi’s have simply been returning fire first instigated by the military, it is quite a surprise that Yoshika’s dad may have been one of the scientists secretly studying the Neuroi crystal and exploring its application as a weapon. Wait a minute, crystal again that involves a parent of one of the leads? Where have I seen this before? *cough* Macross F *cough*.

The witches are in trouble, GN-005 Virtue to the rescue!

This scene is best watched in the dark, just listen for the dialog.

If Yoshika’s dad is indeed involved, then the next question is how much does Mio know about it also. She seems somehow adamantly sure that the Neuroi’s are evil and have been setting up a trap for Yoshika. And she seems to have predicted the unexpected maneuver of the military in accosting the witches in the last scene. Is she merely a victim of a conspiracy or a very conspirator herself?

Men are scums.

Males are always scums in shows where all the leads are females.

The OH SHI... I just open up a can of worm look

Now that the military seems to have a combat-ready Kyrios x Virtue mecha that can take out a Neuroi hive easily, the witches’ tenure of keeping the enemy at bay is rapidly counting down, especially after one of the witches has opened up a can of worm. Wouldn’t it be ironic if the witches switches their guns and points them at the military in defense of the very thing they were created to destroy? Oh my goodness, am I talking about plot in Strike Witches again? Gomen ne. Let’s just get back to the mindless fan services.

Best scene in SW so far.

    I swear to go Yoshika is a walking Neuroi crystal and the Neuroi invaded to go look for her.

    Haha, well maybe that would be the songbird Sanya instead: Yoshika is just a failed experiment that can’t sing. 😉
