Just found a nice little discussion on /a/ and thought that there hasn't really been any reconciliations about their exact nature other than as the designated bad guy.

I don't think there will be a concrete explanation as to their origins, but in the SWverse history, the fates of humanity and Neuroi have always been intertwined. In the setting, any things that would've been fantastical in our world (Other than magic itself of course) is attributed to Neuroi.

Ancient Youkai? Neuroi.
Medieval Dragons? Neuroi
Demons and Monsters? Neuroi.

It seems that Humanity and Neuroi were just destined to be enemies with each other as their conflict has persisted throughout history. If we were to pin a particular motive for Neuroi, then it would be because of the fact that they gain sustenance from devouring land. (Hence the missing landmasses in the SW world; they were casualties from Neuroi conflicts spread throughout history)

It seems that there followed a period of peace in this age old conflict. Due to the relative lack of major destruction alluded to in the setting's recent history and general lack of knowledge of humanity about Neuroi. However, during the onset of the industrial revolution and the dawn of magical technology, as if in response to Humanity's newfound technological knowledge, the Neuroi themselves awoke again and evolved from fantastical creatures to the more mechanized appearances they have today.

The short skirmishes of humanity against the reawakened Neuroi (Then known as the Kaii in the east or Ratsel in the west) later became retroactively known as the 1st Neuroi War. Further smaller Neuroi conflicts also occured in thr next few years. (i.e. the Fuso Sea Incident) Around the late 1930's the Neuroi began an assault out of the Black Sea en masse, causing heavy casualties and losses in the European region. Their emergence from the Black Sea also gave them their current Moniker: Neuroi, in relation to the legendary tribe that allegedly lived in the area in ancient times. This started the 2nd Neuroi war, which is the current setting of the SW series.

Other than Neuroi eat land, we don&#

Our wiki also has a pretty comprehensive article on Neuroi, be sure to check it out. Most of that stuff has been there for the last 5 years.

  Hi, I'm Ikazuchi.

I work at a military store and we sell military patches along with guns.

My boss was thinking of expanding his line of patches to anime themed ones. I know nothing about Strike Witches as I didn't watch it. However, I know a lot about Kancolle and Girls und Panzer. Since I'm the only one in the store who watches anime, the boss instructed me on doing some research. He wants to know if anime themed patches are profitable.

Here's what I'm trying to do:
I'm going to bulk order 640 patches. There will be 40 of each design, so 16 designs in total. I already chose a patch company that has made unlicensed patches in the past. I guess they don't care if they're copyrighted or not.

Second of all, I'm going to use Patch-kun's designs to make the patches. Here's the link: http://www.helma.us/sw/res/4304.html#4823 I tried contacting Patch-kun via email as well as Kickstarter, but I doubt he's going to reply back. Worst, I can't find a way to contact /ak/ scanlations (Patch-kun is from there, right?)

Third of all, I'm going to create a patch based on the Kancolle Logo. If anyone can find me a filthy big logo that I can vector the hell out of, that'd be well appreciated.

Fourth of all, I'm also making patches based on the 6 schools in Girls und Panzer.

ever since patch kun took my money and ran.

I'll buy all the strike witches patches. Also where in Canada are you. and why is your boss specifically going for the anime market when only you watch anime. seems odd. but hey you'll be selling to niche but open market.

Oh, forgot to post the spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1QFPp2SforxWmZDvfhUt_uJdhziOZk2Q1N9T7nzjPYOE/edit#gid=0

I'm not going to disclose my information so that the copyright holders won't know where I live or where I work if they were to send me a CoD letter. After all, these patches are based on copyrighted work. You know how much of an asshole companies like Funimation are.

Boss is interested in anime because he has friends who sell anime related goods in the city I live in, and is curious how profitable the anime/manga market is. Therefore, he tasked me to do some research first.

On Gelbooru, the artist's name appears in red. I prefer to use Danbooru, though. You can access it by clicking the image above the word "Danbooru."

I guess this is your first week on the internet. Welcome, but lurk more. Also get into Danbooru's prohibited tags and Sadpanda.

Generally speaking, Saucenao is the primary method at identifying anime images via RIS, be it searching original sources for general art or even old anime screenshots. It offers convenient online cropping and links to IQDB/Google RIS when saucenao doesn't cut it. Pixiv will provide you artist information. Or if you're afraid of moonrunes, Danbooru's wiki will.

For boorus, Danbooru for general purposes, Yande.re for hi-quality scans. Others are mostly poorly-maintained duplicates of danbooru database. e.g. Danbooru database is duplicated by Gelbooru with some junk additions, which is then duplicated by Sankaku Complex with even more random porn. Danbooru has the best community, which leads to best tagging quality, wiki pages and most soft translations available.

For porn manga RIS, commercial or doujinshi, use Exhentai's file search. Doujinshi.org for general doujinshi information.

but yeah, didnt want to crease the book, so, sorry about that. pretty much everything is usable except one picture of Trude strapped up in this weird striker and aleks and fernie's profile pictures. I might just take pictures of them instead.

Just ignore all the posters on /a/ who come across as rude. Really, that's the easiest thing to do. And the term you're looking for is shitposting.

I think for some people it's a problem when we have a Strike Witches thread with no actual discussion. I don't mind threads every other day. It's nice to come together and talk about the series and the witches a bit.
Lewdposting on the other hand is a different subject, some people, like myself, like it while others don't.

I'm not quite sure what the meaning is but circle-jerking is when some posters praise eachother and continue pointless discussions.

Well hello there, fellow Asian. I am an Asian too, but I pretty much speak English wherever I go. Of course, I get the usual boo for being an Asian who can't speak his own mother tongue. I'm from Malaysia, you?

> why the SW community used an anonymous board and not registered boards with username?
If I could guess, it traces back to the roots from Japanese imageboards, which are anonymous. 4chan was an attempt to bring these imageboards to the English audience. /a/ was made for anime and manga, anonymous imageboards became famous, and here we are.

> thanks. on top of physical illness i have chemical imbalance as well that affects my mental state.
I'm sorry to hear that mate. I wish you well from the bottom of my heart.

> as far as i can see from the 3 or 4 SW thread on /a/.. there's a lot of posters posting negative remarks and unpleasant replies on the thread.
> how do you read through the BS and continue on the nice discussion while some posters replies to you in a rude way?
It's safe to ignore them. I wouldn't call them bad people. Some of them probably have good intentions, but not well expressed.

This site is mostly up to date with information. http://decaydance.geoshitties.installgentoo.com/sw/

To find the artist of a picture, get the url of the picture and search for it on iqdb to find the danbooru. I know that at least on Chrome, there is an extension called "image search options" that makes searching very easy. It also makes it much simpler to use saucenao, which is how you can find the artist's pixiv.

IIRC this was the cover of one of the booklets that came with each volume of the BD/DVD release. The art is by Shimada Humikane.
