Replies: 15The Strike Witches Dub
: Now that the movie has finally been released, I thought we could talk about the dub. I'm sure i'm not the only one who here is a fan of the dub. If you liked the dub, what stands out to you? Honestly, I was pretty disappointed in the film. Most of the characters didn't seem to fit back in their roles. In the original dub, Leigh Cherami played Yoshika as a lovable spaz, which made her pretty endearing. But in the film, she just sounded so generic. Erica, Perrine, and especially Minna really didn't fit. I still don't know if I should blame lazy acting or bad writing (yes, the film itself is also poorly written). On the other hand, the Trude and Shirley VO's were solidly on point as usual. And Lucchini, who was my least favorite during the series, somehow was one of my favorites in the movie. Go figure.

I have a question, why are Japanese fans not so keen on talking to foreigner fans? I had a few nice interactions but the rest I've been ignored. I hardly see that from Taiwanese people. I make efforts to speak to them in their own language yet I still get mostly ignored. I seriously don't get it, they watch a show with people of many nations and love it, yet ignore that person even if that person is from the same nation as their favorite witch. I hope I'm not taking it the wrong way because it may just be a culture shock, but I perceive it as down right rude.

I've been playing a lot of Fire Emblem lately, and I was thinking that its SRPG style would be absolutely perfect for a Strike Witches fangame. - Support conversations for units that fight together, as well as increasing bonds and eventually the ability to S-rank (pair up romantically). - Drama from permadeath (yeah, I play with permadeath in FE and think it would be cool to see a slightly darker SW). - Easy to weave in the "random battles that punctuate the plot" needed in an SRPG.

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't really know anything about the Neuroi's ultimate objective? Eradication of humans? Complete cannibalization of the earth? One interesting thing an anon pointed out was that while Neuroi and Humanity have indeed clashed a few times in history, this was the first time a Humanity vs. Neuroi conflict grew to such a massive scale. In fact, the Neuroi only became heavily aggressive during the industrial boom when the first magic engine was created. This raises some interesting implications.
FileReplies: 9Resurrecting Strike Witches patch project and making moar patches
: 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. Finally, all patches will be Vinyl and in 3.5x3.5 inches. Sounds good? The store I work at is located in Ontario, Canada. So if you're from the US, shipping will probably be $1-3 if you buy from us. I'm also trying to sell the patch for $6 each or lower. I'm currently negotiating on the price with the patch company. I need a lot of feedback to make this work. I don't need Kickstarter to back me up. And I bet Indiegogo will suspend me if the project ever succeeds. Please let me know if Patch-kun's designs are off. I'll ask my Graphic Arts friend to do the adjustments. Thank you.

Replies: 4Witch Battle Positions
: Awhile ago some anons helped me figure out what the axis titles on the witches profiles meant. I worked through the released witch profile images that had battle postion charts, and compiled them in a list. The numbers are relative pixel positions, so I'm not sure what "100 Offense" actually means or how it is/was measured. That's why the numbers are relative to each other witch's position. It's possible each JFW/group has a different scale for their charts, meaning the different groups cannot be compared like this, but unlikely. (Tried to post this on /a/, but my IP block is banned or some shit.)

Shipping for all orders will be $5 US/$12 International. At the end of the week, I'll look at the orders in order of date and set aside orders. If your order is unavailable I'll let you know on Saturday. NOTE: These pins will be WAY faster than the patches and pin orders since I only have one class during this section of the summer.

: http://www.ksatechnologyhq.com:1357/mainsite/games/aige/sw/sg Strike Witches: Sky Guardians is a fan-made side-scrolling 2D shooter being developed for the Strike Witches community. At this point, most of the elements of the game are coming along pretty nicely, but the one thing holding up development is the lack of sprites. We need a few good artists to help us with creating sprites for the player characters and the mobs. If anyone would be willing to take a swing at creating sprites for the game, we woud really appreciate it. We'll give more specific info in subsequent posts as to how we want the sprites to look, as well as more details about the game. As it is now, we have most of the logic for the various special moves and such already laid out, and stats drawn up for the 501st as well as many of the world witches. there is more info about what we eventually plan to implement in the link above

Replies: 24One year!
: First of all, I would once again like to thank our admin team and the users for their continued dedication to this site, despite the general slowness and my somewhat ..lacking.. presence. I wish I was more active in the community, in irc and what-not, but I'm just a very reserved person and can't really bring myself to do it. But despite this, know that I'll always be around if I'm needed. Anyhow, enough of that. It has been a whole year since the founding of this site! This is an exciting time, for even though the website has had its hurdles and the posting remains generally slow, it has still managed to stay alive. Hopefully with the eventual DVD release of the movie and lots of new content to discuss, things will speed up again. As for the future of the website, I will continue to pay for it unless interest completely dies out (0 posts for months), which hopefully won't be for several years. When it comes to various improvements and overhauls of the site, I'm kind of ashamed of myself for not putting more work into it. I still have a list of features and what-not that I want to add, but a lack of real skill and various "IRL" problems have cut down my motivation a bit. The things that are still planned: Actual front page. New forum software. (Although I've grown fond of this one) Miscellaneous features and improvements. There is also the possibility of oekaki being merged with /sw/ in order to speed things up a bit. If things get REALLY bad, off topic may be merged as well as a last ditch emergency move. But I wouldn't worry about that right now. In closing, Happy Birthday Helma.us! And may the next year be even brighter!

Something that I've been wondering. Most of the Fuso witches seem to carry swords as backup weapons (or trump cards, take your pick). Elizabeth has a Gurka knife, and even Perrine uses her heirloom rapier. So does anyone else want to see Shirley pull out that Bowie Knife they drew her with one day? Maybe use her acceleration ability to throw it? I'm pretty sure Misa has the same ability as her, and she does it.

Replies: 291000 posts!
: First of all, I would like to start off by thanking the admins for their continued support and staying with the site despite the rough launch of the website earlier this year. I really appreciate it, and if it wasn't for their advice in the tumultuous early days of the forum I probably would've given up and blanked the site. I would also like to thank all of the posters and lurkers on this board for sticking around for all these months despite the various rough patches we've had, such as the downtime and that old 404 error, and the relative slowness of the site in comparison to our origin board. If it wasn't for you guys, the love wouldn't be alive and well here, and this site would just be another monument to failed ambitions. Thanks. Anyhow, on to business. While 1000 posts are but a mere drop in the water in comparison to other forums, I believe that for this forum it marks the beginning of a new era, "the era of progress", and the closing of the "era of uncertainty". What this means is that I am now far more confident in the sustainability of the website, and now that the board is in good running condition I have begun laying out the framework for various improvements and additions to the site. The board will largely remain the same, but in the future it will be but one part (albeit, a very important one) of a larger site. It was frequently suggested in the early days of the site that it be made into a more general Strike Witches fan-site, containing various news updates and basic information and what not. I have come to believe that this idea may be the best option for the future of the site, and I have started making plans for the transition from a board only site, to a larger general purpose site. Right now I envision the site as having a prominent news section on the main page, where members of the community, such as those that make translations or scrounge twitter for updates and rumors, are able to post news updates for everyone to see. I would also like an option for anyone to submit Strike Witches related news, which upon review by a designated news-poster, will be able to be posted. There would also be a information section, which would contain information on the series, characters, etc. This would be done in a way as to not step on the wikis toes, as a lot of hard work went into the wiki. I imagine a page with basic information on each subject, with a link at the bottom to the wiki for further reading would work fine. The board would still be the main attraction, and will be the very first item linked in the menu. There won't be many changes to the board. In the short run, there may be some visual changes. More styles, better graphics. In the long run, Wakaba may replace Kusaba X. And of course there would be a links section that would contain links to the official sites and the sites of our friends overseas (Karlsland, etc). The website will definitely remain advertisement free. And in the unlikely event that I am unable to pay the hosting bills due to a massive traffic increase or some other unforeseen event, I would rather use a donation system, with myself also contributing to the fund. This is an unlikely scenario, but I figured I would detail what the procedure would be should all of my funds somehow vanish. As of right now, I have what I want the website to look like visualized in my mind for the most part. However, due to my job I haven't had as much free time to work on the site as I had hoped. When I had bought the site, work was slow and infrequent, but recently things have been more active and I've been kept busy. Making the art and flash menus shouldn't be too hard, but coding the actual website will probably be the biggest problem at the moment, as right now I'm not much better than 1990s Geo-cities tier. But I can probably learn to do what I want quickly enough, free time willing. As stated before, these changes will not be immediate, but they are my current goals for the site. The earliest to begin expecting any significant changes will probably be sometime after December. Until then, I'll keep everything up and running as is, with maybe a minor change here and there. In closing, thank you all for keeping the love alive and well in the present, as well as in the future.

Replies: 9Witches and Neuroi: My Theory
: Before you nail me to a barn door, please take a moment to read this!!! For the past few months now, whenever I've been bored or doing something I don't enjoy, I've been thinking about what to put in a few Fan Fictions I write in my free time. I think about all sorts of things in relation to my story, including things such as the "what ifs" and "why?". What I'm about to detail is just what I've conjured up in my mind, and this is coming from someone who surprisingly hasn't finished the entire series of both Anime and Manga. From what I've read though, despite the in-depth "research" into these creatures by the humans of the Strike Witches Universe, there is still very little to be known about these creatures apart from their structure, armaments, what the core is and how to kill them. Are we ready folks? If so, then I shall begin. My theory bore itself to me one day when I was, as usual, thinking of my stories. I had begun to think of a main character who had worked with the Witches of the 501st back when he was seventeen, and had grown into the shoes of a brilliant aeronautics designer who was looking for the long lost Sergeant Bishop, who disappeared some time after the events of Season 2 of the Anime. Anyway, for reasons not yet detailed Minna had returned to him and was on more than friendly terms... so the Main Character began to discuss what his recent projects were with her. I can't recall the exact details, but that's the gist of it... Gimme a sec... don't know your word limits, will continue.

>While many nations decorated their aircraft with nose art, American Air Force pilots were unique in their penchant for painting pretty girls on the sides of their planes. Sometimes they would forget to paint the clothes on them, which would often be hastily added before the plane returned home from the front lines. Eventually, the Air Force passed a regulation encouraging a sense of decorum, but boys will be boys and pretty girls still get painted on airplanes, even in today's Air Force. So is it safe to assume Liberion Witches paint manly men on their Strikers?

Früh übt sich...
I was bored recently and decided to see how well Battle for Wesnoth would work as a game engine for a Strike Witches mod. Turns out, not too bad! It is hardly complete, and not really playable. I am still getting the hang of editing units, and making sprites is time-consuming. I figured I would share what I have so far and get some feedback on what direction I should take this. At the moment, I have very simple sprites for the 501st (pic related). No attack/idle/movement animations yet. I don't have Neuroi sprites for enemies, so they're fighting Griffons (that's canon right?). I personally feel the graphics are a low priority, and can be polished later. No unit portraits (graphic next to HP/XP on right side) either. There is no story yet, although I guess I could try to emulate the first season. Thoughts? I would like to start off with something simple so I can release it sooner. Once something is made, it will be much easier to keep it going and not become vapourware. Unit stats and accuracy is pretty basic. I don't have a power level type chart comparing the witches, so they're all fairly similar, but I kinda know their weapons/abilities. It's all based on Wesnoth's engine, which if you are unfamiliar has some restrictions: - no ranged attack, units must attack on adjacent tiles. Instead, have multiple attack types (blunt, pierce, etc). - Scripting events is pretty 'easy'. Have to understand the Wesnoth DSL for config files though. - Some other things I am forgetting that make some cool stuff impossible I am also not sure about legality. This would be a free mod, and releasing it also makes it open source. If really necessary it could be a mod which is based in a Strike Witches like universe, but that wouldn't be as fun. tl;dr - free unfinished fan-made turn-based strike witches game

Replies: 1SW40K: Winter Wolves
: After the disastrous founding of the Wolf Sisters Chapter and its subsequent dissolution, the “Children of Russ”, a bold plan to defend the outskirts of the Imperium with the genetic heirs of Leina Russ, was declared unfeasible. What would have been a promise to propagate the Space Wolves Legion throughout the galaxy was undone by the Legion's very genomic flaws. But in the wake of unprecedented alien and daemonic onslaughts upon the Imperium, every ounce of wolf spirit's power would be critical in bringing humanity back from the brink of extinction. So the Children of Russ project was recommenced. This time, the Adeptus Mechanicus diluted the Space Wolves gene-seed with a sliver of genetic information from the White Scars. The new line, which drastically cut the rate of fatal mutations that once ravaged the Wolf Sisters, was deemed ready. The planet of choice was discovered centuries prior, when an exploratory ship crashed into an ice-covered, seemingly barren planet deep within the unexplored area of Ultima Segmentum. The survivors of the crash, numbering in the thousands, now had to contend with impossibly frigid temperatures, shifting, fragile, ice sheets, murderous fauna, and hostile Iron Age natives. By the time a recovery fleet arrived at the treacherous planet, only half a dozen survived what was nicknamed Novus Fenris. Suomus, a name with which Novus Fenris would be properly dubbed, was deemed the most lethal Death World up to that time. The natives of Suomus, molded by the elements into redoubtable warriors and ironsmiths, are divided into countless warring tribes bounded by ever-shifting alliances. From the depraved, cannibalistic Ostroboths to reindeer-riding Lapp pillagers, the warriors of Suomus kept battlefields fresh with daily bloodletting. Psychic prowess was honed solely for raw killing power, to the satisfaction of the Techpriests. The new Chapter, the Winter Wolves, contains only four Great Companies, all representing the multifaceted nature of the wolf. And unlike in Fenris, where they are venerated as spiritual beings, wolves are universally feared and detested amongst the people of Suomus. Thus, the Winter Wolves adorn themselves with canine iconography with the purpose of instilling fear, not awe. The Space Wolves, who excel in winning the hearts of the defenseless, also openly disdain the Winter Wolves' penchant for horrific reprisals and the savage employment of terrorism as a judicial tool. After all, the motto of the Winter Wolves is simply, “Hack them down!”

: She appeared on Chapter 9 in Strike Witches Zero. She was sitting in a throne, her face initially shrouded like that of a shogun or tenno. Whoever she was, she seemed to outrank every other Witch in the meeting. Any info on her?
Replies: 10The most asked question
: Time to ask it because it seems to be the most asked question by people who don't watch the series. Why don't they wear pants?
I made this request a while back in the threads on 4chan but I'm asking again so there isn't a 40K thing on here. I would like a drawing of Charlotte and Bugs Bunny from a propaganda cartoon or something.

It begins. This board is gonna move slowly, I recommend advertising it. The pony fans only made an imageboard because of the amount of posts. Strike Witches threads get like 100 posts. In 3 days.
Replies: 3SW40K: Blood Loins
: The Blood Loins are a Space Witches Second Founding Chapter derived from the Blood Angels. Just like the latter, the Blood Loins are descended from the Primadonna Angelina Sanguinius and possess a level of ferocity on the battlefield unparalleled even amongst the Empress's Angels of Death. Their homeworld, Estalia, is a Renaissance Italy-style Feudal World in Ultima Segmentum with notoriously heavy social stratification. The plebeians, who fend off starvation and murderous bandits on a daily basis, comprise most of the population. The patricians fare little better, for they must constantly devise complex schemes to survive in a poisoned courtly atmosphere where treachery and assassinations are all too common. It is in this grim, medieval planet where the Blood Loins recruit their psychically-gifted girls. The brutal savagery of the plebeian Witches, combined with the sadistic cunning of their patrician comrades, has earned the Blood Loins a reputation for hitting strategic points with unparalleled precision and cruelty. The Chapter holds a dubious tradition of issuing white panties to the Neophyte Witches, but forbidding them from ever washing or changing them. Over time, the white panties would be stained red with blood, be it from downed foes or grievous wounds. Officer Witches, witnessing thousands of battles, have panties that are actually pitch black from centuries of accumulated blood and gore. Should one tragically fall in battle, her dark panties would be preserved as holy relics, supposedly imbuing the fallen Witch's battle spirits to any young Witch who touches or even sniffs them.
