The first episode is now up on Funimation:

Episode 1

And here is Strike Witches, the slice of life version as they aren't battling Neurois in this show. It begins with Yoshika making breakfast, but her comrades aren't exactly being helpful in the kitchen, especially since Mina's cooking is so toxic. Those girls will take a Neuroi attack over Mina's cooking anytime. And then Erica and Charlotte are as dumb as ever getting tans when it's probably not good idea to go out in battle like that. Pretty amusing this ought to be with all the familiar characters of this series doing crazy things.

I think it's got potential. Can't figure out what they're going with as far as Lynne goes.

It's a pleasure to see Strike Witches are back, even if it's a spin-off. Quite amusing episode, i must say.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this series but I have to admit it was very amusing. Seeing the girls during their downtime is quite the change. Hopefully Luccini makes an appearance next episode and she doesn't sleep through the whole season.

Strike Witches: 501 Butai Hasshinshimasu! (Strike Witches 501st Unit, Taking Off!) EP # 1 501st, Take Off?

Well a comedy at everyday life of the 501

Yoshika Miyafuji thought she be on the front lines but does everyday chores like at home especiaally breakfast since everybody else is bad at it

Wing CMDR Mina idea of cooking ROFL
Then time to wake those up not on duty /

Yoshika goes with Barkhorn for wake up call / Hartmann's room looks like the Neuroi hit it

Meanwhile Mina instead of stirrring the pot for Yoshika adds her special touch / no one can hold it down but are saved by an attack and they say they are saved

Sakamoto is going to let Yoshika train and Yeager / Hartmann want to train her / Sakamoto says just the good parts

Their idea of training lounging in skimpy suumer wear sipping drinks

Ending Theme:
"Treasure of life" by 501st Joint Fighter Wing

Michiko Yamakawa does the after ending info segment

Not the biggest fan of the art but the comedy was pretty dang good and I enjoyed the show overall, its nice to have another series with these characters even if it is a short form show.

Episode 2

Erica sure is a slob, but that pigsty is just ridiculous, even by her standards. But of course Erica can't keep it clean as the next day it's as bad as it ever was. And then Mina gets married to Mio, so they dress up to celebrate the, uh, occasion. That just goes to show how much of a slob Erica is.
