Yes, it’s your fault, everything’s your fault. You definitely didn’t think this one through, did you? Don’t you think that the Neuroi’s would be upset at you for killing so many of them? But then you go off to make friend with that Neuroilet. I’m so upset at you … you … you know what? I’m just gonna turn on your dad too—your biography will be called “PWNED: Like Father, Like Daughter”.
Francesca = Mio over at @ RC. They just can’t see Yoshika for what she really is… a hack.

Well, OK, so the witches at the 501st are a little bit more understanding than some other character (whose name sounds like a certain curiously strong mint) on some other show. Mio and company are willing to entertain the thought that their enemies may not just be the Neuroi and give the benefit of the doubt to Yoshika, as they all keep their cool and secretly investigate for the truth.
Since this show has only two episodes left, they don’t need to look further than up the sky to see that their replacement robot Warlock Unit 0 employs the same weaponry as their enemies. No surprise here, Warlock is powered by a Neuroi’s crystal kept in control by some manmade machineries, Eva style. What is a surprise, though, is that the Neuroi, as their name has so obviously been implying all this time, are interconnected as a network forming a single entity. The humans try to create their own NeuroiNet with five crystals, but the Neuroi have plenty more. One thing leads to another, Warlock Unit 0 is now Neuroi #897614, backfiring on the humans. (Hmm… A crystal nourished by human which turned against them—where have I seen this before?)
Despite being stripped of their last apparels that cover their legs, Mio reveals what she has made Perrine to insert deeper in between her legs from last episode—a pair of Strike Unit. No longer the anti-war junkie that she was, Yoshika immediately demands to fly to action.
Plot wise, Strike Witches has been a soft porn version of Macross F except where the main character here does not just merely stare at but instead is unafraid to grab some boobies. Entertainment wise, Strike Witches is surprising more enjoyable than I had thought and certainly less stressful, especially given the recent flame war on the other show. I really much rather laugh at my anime than curse at it.
