With Naoe in spotlight it seems during the winter of 1943 as she gets into the unit.

Thank you.

The other two as well.


You're free to go, sir.
I can take care of the rest.

Until just recently I had been waiting at the Suomuski Station.
Naturally, it was to welcome you.
But no matter how long I waited, no one showed up.

It was deserted, cold, and a stray dog kept pestering me for food.

That's great Sasha-chan, you're even popular with the dogs!

Then, as I was planning on heading back, I hear that 3 Witches got imprisoned.
So I hurry over to speak with the military police, who have me sign numerous papers.
And, after that was over, I had to make my way here.

But when I had heard why you were put in here I was surprised... A fight?
We Witches are supposed to fight the Neuroi, but you ended up fighting with a soldier?

[left of Kanno, 2nd panel] Uh...

You did well.


Orussia can be an intimidating place - enough to stifle a crying child.
Most would only go as far to say "excuse me" to stop a shameless man.
I'm glad, Kanno-san, that you know how to deal with such ill-mannered soldiers.

Ah, yeah...

Please refrain from doing it this way in the future. There is nothing to be gained from fighting with allies.

I've yet to introduce myself.
I'm Captain Aleksandra Ivanovna Pokryshkin.
Most people call me Sasha.

Where are we going?

To our unit's base of operations, Peter and Paul Fortress.

Our unit is called the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing.
We use Petersburg as a base to fight off the Neuroi.

File 149443279383.jpg - (502.21 KB , 1500x2124 , brave_witches_01_20.jpg )

So the idea is to bring a bunch of aces from different countries together to raise our results.
This Joint Fighter Wing thing, I mean.

After the test case of the Suomus Independent Volunteer Aerial Squadron,
And the Britannia-based 501st were considered effective, it was decided to increase the number of such units.

Illu got assigned to the 501st...

Are there going to be any Witches aside from us?

The Western Front has so many cute girls, it's a feast for the eyes.
[left of Krupinski] Haa
I think it'd be nice if this harsh Eastern Front had a few more cuties.

I've brought Kanno Naoe, Waltrud Krupinski,
and Nikka Edvardine Katajainen back with me.

Good work.

I apologize for making you come here so late, but I wanted you all to arrive as soon as possible.

Because of your hastened arrival, your luggage and equipment won't arrive until tomorrow.
I've already sent out transfer orders for the other members.
Feel free to introduce yourselves when they arrive.


Were we appropriately chosen for this?

Well, I was the one who requested you from your respective units.

This is Orussia. The harshness of the struggle here far surpasses anywhere else.
I need Witches who are prepared for what lies ahead.
I decided that you all seemed suitable for the job.

I think you're overestimating...

You're all Witches who have survived in this landscape.
Do I need any other reason?

I expect the Neuroi to send a welcoming party this way soon.
Get some rest today, but be ready for battle starting tomorrow.

Do we have beds?

We've arranged that much.
Unless you'd prefer a tent or a trench like on the frontline?

A roof would be nice...

That was a nice introductory chapter, even if the panels are a bit unimaginative.
Thanks for doing this chapter so much!

Man these kill counts in witch verse seem arbitrary in relation to the aces.
>On 22 October 1942, Rall was credited with his 100th aerial victory.
Yet Nipa is saying Rall has already 250 kills and this is four years prior?

Krupi knows what's up.

Anyways what I don't like is that this is four years prior yet, all of them are exactly the same as they would be later to the war physically.
For girls their age, four years is a huge amount of time passing. Naoe is 11? She looks nothing like a person one year younger than Lucchini. Goddamn Nipa is Naoe's age too at 11 and even more ridiculous. Yet her nipas are as large as ever, did they suddenly pop like that at 9 when puberty hits earliest? Krupinski being 15 now and later 18 is something I can understand that she has hit her looks that won't necessarily change that much.
>> No. 12568 ID: e7171d
The specific time it takes place is given in >>12531 as Winter 1943, about one year before the anime. The 4 years prior is in reference to Orussia already being liberated and humanity fighting back - most likely in reference to the Strike Witches IF Cold Winter 1947.

Ah, naruhodo. Thanks for clearing that up for a fool like me. No wonder I was confused.

Picking up fights with random soldiers just seems like the sort of thing that normally wouldn't happen in SW media, though perhaps it's something more along the lines of what people were hoping for with Brave Witches. And yes, I don't recall hearing of the jailing before this thread.


I think Krupi belongs behind bars for something else entirely though.

Thank you once more for the translation, anon! You're doing God's work. I actually really enjoy the art in this manga and can't wait to see more.
>> No. 12572 ID: cef0aa
Thanks for the translation Anon! My Nihongo is far from being able to understand manga yet. And I noticed in >>12536 you translated "早くここから出しゃがれ" as "Let me outta here!!" instead a "Hurry up and let me outta here!!", skipping the 早く part which is basically simple urging. It's a little thing but as a non-native English speaker, can I ask you why is that?
>> No. 12573 ID: 6b8dcc
Mostly just for flow and impact.
If I wanted to be more literal/true to the page I would probably split it into two sentences like "Hurry up! Let me outta here!" or do what you had suggested, but I feel like "Let me outta here!" already carries a sense of urgency in English and the "Hurry up!" is understood, especially if someone is yelling.

You both missed, didn't you?

An observation post was able to witness the battle.

I suppose congratulations are in order for shooting down a medium-type Neuroi,
Although I was surprised to hear that three Witches had engaged a Neuroi in the first place.
This victory will be shared amongst yourselves.

Huh? It's not mine?

I told you it was mine.

I thought it was mine.


Now, to the problem of your Strikers.
Originally, they weren't supposed to arrive until the day after tomorrow, but I pulled some strings for you and they arrived early.

That was just this morning, but you've already broken them before breakfast.

We don't even have all of our Witches assembled and already three of our members can't sortie.
In all my experience, this is a first.

What do you think would happen if a Neuroi were to attack right now?

I don't think I need to explain, do I?
I'm sure it would be a real treat.


In any case, until your Strikers are repaired please keep out of trouble,
And try not to break anything else.

I haven't had anything to say until now.
You're all veterans with repeated experience in Orussia.
An attack by the Neuroi shouldn't come as a surprise.

Sometimes your equipment will break, and sometimes we'll run out of spare parts, these things happen.
But the fact is, we can't afford any losses in fighting strength.

I mean, taking off and engaging in a battle without any orders?
Sasha nearly fainted when she heard.

I somehow managed to stay standing.

Now let me be clear,
Preparing the papers to request spare parts and the like is tedious.
I wish I could just make a single phone call and be done with it, but the military doesn't work that way.
So I would appreciate it if you didn't give me any extra work in the future.

It appears breakfast is ready.
Now then, let's eat.

Wait a moment.

Before you go, I'd like you girls to run two laps around the base.


It's a punishment for taking off on your own and for losing your Strikers.
A rather mild one at that.

That makes sense, but...

But why do we gotta do it before breakfast...

Would you prefer three laps?

Two is fine!

Were you waiting for us?

Good work. As I said earlier, let's eat.
Sasha went to go pick up the other members.
She said she would eat over there.

Buckwheat porridge (Kasha) and Shchi with plenty of vegetables

Feel free to keep eating, but listen up.

The damage to Krupinski and Katajainen's Strikers was less than we had expected.
The repairs should be pretty easy. They'll be fixed by tomorrow.
But the damage to Kanno's unit was pretty severe.

Are you saying I can't sortie?

No, in fact the repairs are already finished. It's just that we've run out of spare parts faster than we expected.
So, if you break your unit in the same place again you won't be able to sortie for quite some time.

File 149567540312.jpg - (458.27 KB , 1500x2120 , brave_witches_02_22.jpg )
Well why don't they just send us a resupply on parts sooner?

The military is a bureaucracy, it's not that easy.
By the way, the maintenance team mentioned the damage was only that bad because it had been flown so close to the enemy during a battle.

If I didn't do it I couldn't have beaten him.

I commend your fighting spirit.

But if you keep breaking your unit there won't be anyone here left to protect.
In that case, the entire Western half of Orussia would be under their control.
That'd make Sasha pretty mad.

I'll be talking to Sasha about the spare parts when she gets back with the new members.

Waiting for that, huh...
Now that you mention it, how many more are coming?

I'm expecting one from Karlsland, one from Gallia, and two from Fuso.

One of the Witches from Fuso might be an acquaintance of yours, Kanno.
Oh, one more thing,

[next to Kanno] I can't think of anyone I'd know...

Because we have to give priority to the spare parts,
Some luxury items for the next supply, like sweets, had to be postponed.


We don't have a choice.
At least not until we can defeat the enemy and secure a supply line, or as long as you don't break any more Strikers,
Or both.

I know what the Commander just said, but there's still some chocolate in the warehouse from the last supply.
I saw it last night.

You're starting to sound like a thief.

So, I've got a proposal.

What is it?

File 149567549757.jpg - (438.44 KB , 1500x2120 , brave_witches_02_24.jpg )
Why don't we wager that chocolate?
Whoever shoots down the most Neuroi gets it all.

Sounds like gambling.

As long as you keep quiet, no one will know. Do you not like gambling, Nao-chan?

No, I'm in.

And after my victory I'll take all of Nao-chan as well.

Hey, Nipa, come get in on this.

Hm? Gambling?
Is it alright?

Don't be so formal about it, you in?

I want chocolate.

It's decided, then.
