Great news, sadly I have to admit it makes little sense buying these untranslated.

Good thing SW is still very popular in Nipland. Should we get an official translation, I'll make sure to buy it.

The Empire of Orussia.
Once, it was a country on the brink of being overrun by the mysterious Neuroi.

But their advance has been stopped thanks to the efforts of the Witches,
Girls who fly through the skies armed to the teeth.
Even with half of their land lost to them, humanity holds its ground.

Buzz off.

Come on, you can tell me.

...I got in a fight.
The usual story.

When I came to Petersburg,
I saw some soldiers trying to make a move on a reporter.

I butted in to stop 'em, but the jerks weren't taking me seriously...

Hahaha! So that was you, huh?

I saw that big fight going on in the streets.

[next to Kanno's head] Seriously.

I guess that's my fault.
Sorry about that.

Don't worry about it. It's been awhile since I've been in a place like this anyway.

Hm... Wait a sec...

The reason I'm always in isolation like this is because I'm a Witch.

Are you a Witch?

You're Kanno Naoe from Fuso, right?

How'd you know?

Part of Fuso's European fleet, active on the Eastern Front, and cute to boot? You're downright famous.

Hey, is it true you're some kind of lone wolf without any sense of cooperation?

Who told you that? I'll send 'em flying.

I've also heard you've got some first-rate skills.
You're one of Fuso's proud ace Witches.

How cold.

Our last operation was supposed to finally liberate Orussia, but it felt like we just regressed.
Because no matter how many you'd get rid of, the Neuroi just kept coming and coming.
It was useless - like pulling weeds.

You can call me Countess, if you like.


What kind of aristocrat has an accent like that?
Shouldn't your pronunciation be more crisp, more elocuted?

It's not an official title, it's just what everyone calls me. But hey, you're pretty smart, aren't you Nao-chan?

Wait a sec. Don't call me that.
Don't add a "-chan".

Same here.
Just as I landed in Fuso ready for some time off, they shipped me right back.

I think Fuso's last names are a lot weirder.

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.

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...

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?

This is Orussia. The harshness of the struggle here far surpasses anywhere else.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

And another set of papers for me to drown in.

It's my first time here, but it's quieter than I expected.
Though it seems that's what Ensign Kanno likes about it.

It's only really been quiet recently. Afterall, this place used to be quite the battlefield.

And I wouldn't be surprised to see it turn into one again.

And here I thought Britannia's 501st were the ones with all the flashy battles.

By fighting in both Orussia and Britannia, we can breakup the threat of the Neuroi.

So is that why headquarters created a joint fighter wing here?

I'm afraid that's classified.

There's a lot of Neuroi in Orussia,
We're running dangerously low on materials,
And the only supply line we have left is through Karelia.

I doubt even the Neuroi are idiotic enough not to take advantage of this situation.

Having the Neuroi at your neck is quite a different feeling, huh.

Not to mention the disinterested.

Peace is a wonderful thing.

I doubt Europe would appreciate that kind of Liberion.

But at the same time, Europe can't survive without Liberion's support.

So to garner their support we'll sell as much of the Witches' lives as we can.
I want them decorating the covers of magazines and appearing on billboards.
People from Fuso and Orussia would give off a more mysterious atmosphere.

Wouldn't it have been a better idea to give them your dessert?

This is a matter of a Witch's appetite.
I'm not gonna sweat the details.

...I wanna grill some mochi.

What's that?

You take some mochigome and put it in the usu then you hit it and... It's kinda hard to explain...
It's a type of food we have in Fuso.

It sounds weird. You really eat that?

Usually just around the New Year.

Speaking of the New Year, it's almost time for Saturnalia. I can't wait!

If you said something like that in Fuso you'd get tons of complaints like,
"What's the point of a festival during a war?"

Don't say stuff like that! Are people from Fuso always that serious?

Finding faults with something isn't the same as being serious.

Jizo, mochi... Fuso is a pretty strange place isn't it?

If ya ask me, I think it's weird that people in Europe always complain about not having enough meat on their plates.

Ahaha, I guess that's just the local color.

...You know,
Back in Suomus, all us Witches were around the same age,
So I was a little anxious about coming here.

I got so nervous.

Y'know, you're pretty weird.

You fly pretty well, there's no reason ya gotta be nervous.

Did you have a wingman back in Fuso, Kanno?

I never settled on one.
Well actually, I did, but we never got to fly together.
Our paths just never crossed right.

So you got rejected!

Don't make it sound weird!
Our timing just wasn't right!
We'll definitely fly together someday!

That sounds nice, I'm a little jealous.

What about you, did you have a partner back in Suomus?

Probably Illu... Ah, or maybe Hasse.
But neither of them are here right now...

Aren't you supposed to say something more like "I'll become your partner"!?

I ain't gonna coddle ya! I already got a partner anyway!

Yeah, and I have Illu!
What do you mean they'll have forgotten about me!?

Economics perspective.

It was a pretty fierce battle.
No matter where I looked, I was surrounded on all sides by Neuroi.

So, how many did you shoot down?

I think it was around 8.


That's twice what I got!

Like hell you doubled our scores!

But Nao-chan, can't you see I'm injured?

You sure as hell don't look like it!!

Anyway, since you shot down 8 Neuroi,
How's about Nipa and I carry you back as your reward.

I'm with Kanno!

That's no good. Afterall, I won the wager,
And that means I get to help myself to all the chocolate.

Can they do that?

They must be public servants.

But it's chocolate? Didn't you say you wanted some?

We're falling behind on supplies as is, we couldn't ask you to waste time on luxuries for us.
It's only because we haven't raised our results that the supplies can't get to us in the first place.
So, if any of us were to eat that chocolate right now they should incur divine wrath!

That's right!!
No matter how many we just shot down, it's our duty as members of the 502nd to ensure our supplies reach us!

Improve our results and better our supplies.

Illu wouldn't have this kind of problem...
I've never seen her get hit before.

Flight Sergeant Edytha Rossman.
She's a veteran Witch who's been in service since Hispania. She's incredibly good at teaching air combat.
I guess that means Commander Rall headhunted her.
I wish I could've objected.

They say Sensei could even teach a penguin to fly.

Thank goodness it didn't come to that.

Now then...

I doesn't look like anyone here needs my teaching...
Everyone seems to be a veteran of the harsh Orussian front.

You too... What would she want to talk to us about already?

Maybe some newbies are coming next resupply?

It's probably about how we got shot down.

Oh, so she's one of those "a stitch in time saves nine" kinda people.

I don't want stitches.

Now we're finally starting to look like a joint fighter wing.

If I were to try that, I have no doubt that things would come to blows.

At present, it's been decided that a number of joint fighter wings - up to the 506th - will be created.
Any one of them would kill for skilled personnel.
If we were to try and reach our hands into our partner's pockets anymore than we already have,
I wouldn't be surprised if the next commander's meeting turned into an all-out brawl.

What about Lieutenant Litvyak? I've heard she's pretty cute.

It's not that. It just doesn't really suit you.

What "suits me" is none of your business!

When you're on alert at base with nothin' to do, you can always read a book.

An uncultured Witch is just a fool.
You're from Karlsland, you're familiar the Gallian writing system, right?

I actually haven't read any literature in the past few years.

When you go back home and join a book club,
What're you gonna do after you don't even read a single book?

Why are you assuming I'm going to join a book club?

But if there's cute girls there, that's a different story.

This is the trouble with savages.

Here, these too.

What're those.

They're addressed to you.
The Flying Officer and I got some too.

Ah... It's the usual letters of encouragement.

Tch. These again.

...Witches, messengers of the gods, let us become comrades and hold out together......Let us stand together. Oh soaring warriors, the day of judgement is at hand......People of the revolution, grab your guns...

"The contributions made by the Witches are always welcome..." What is this nonsense?

Mine says...
"You are a valkyrie reborn. Let us go to Valhalla together."
[side of bubble]Isn't that where you go when you die?

Mine says, "How dare you lay a hand on my sister. I hope you're ready, because I'm going to kill you."
What a wild delusion.

I don't think that one's a delusion.

All that's left are the bond solicitations.

There's ones from Fuso, Suomus, Britannia, Liberion...
Orussia, and Neue Karlsland.

If you tried buying all of these you'd go bankrupt.
You know things are bad when they're asking Witches to buy war bonds.

These are stupid, do they think we're gonna lose?

When humanity collapses, it's gonna start back home.

Why are you looking over them again? Something wrong?

Yeah... There was a certain letter that was supposed to come, but it's not here...
They might just be busy... But they told me they were gonna send it...

Looks like my repairs are done.

You really like books, don't you?

Again with the betting.
No doubt the Flying Officer would win. She seems real strong.

Couldn't we do it with just the two of us?

You think so, but guys like her always just end up appearing outta nowhere.
...Wait a second.

We could invite the newcomer and milk 'em for all they're worth.

Newcomer? You mean Rossman-san? She seems pretty strong...
What about Sasha-san?

You sure you'd be able to sleep at night if we tried that?

What about Commander Rall?
If we win we can have ourselves a payday.

If we tried that on the Commander we'd probably get sent to a military prison.

It's not too important,

So the repairs are all finished, huh?

Almost, but they still can't fly.

I had to ask if I could borrow them.

Nipa-san, you tend to look down when a stranger is talking to you, don't you?
You need to make it a habit to relax yourself.

Um... How did you know that......

Not to mention that Juutilainen-san isn't here. It's critical you learn to move on.
You shouldn't bother watching the cargo plane fly away anymore.
Though I doubt that will affect your shooting very much.

And Kanno-san, it's better for you not to think about Karibuchi-san.

How do you know that...!?

There's also this short chapter that was put out to announce the first volume of the manga.

I don't care what anyone says, here's an announcement comic.
~Prequel Volume~

Hello, my pretty little kitties.

Welcome to Graf Punski's Counselling Center - Prequel Branch...
Today's guest is a photographer all the way from Liberion, D-san.

Oh, what's this...? "I'm writing an article about the 502nd, but there's too much blank space."

[Paper]I want secret information on the 502nd.

"I was wondering if you had any juicy material, er, should I say appropriate pictures with which I can fill the gaps?"

To tell the truth, there are many places around the base that even I haven't seen.
So I too would love to have more information on everyone's life in the raw.

[Base]It was originally a fortress, so of course it's huge.

Luckily, have I got good news for you, D-san!

[D-san]I'm over here.

I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be Kanno's hand in the bottom left, so I think it should still be "those" and not "these". Also, you're missing the "don't" in that final "Ya [don't] think I can read Gallian?".

During today's patrol I didn't observe a single Neuroi.
And it wasn't just me, Krupinski-san and Rossman-san both reported the same thing.

A welcome respite.

It would be nice if things stayed quite for a while longer, but I'm not sure we'll be so lucky.

I wouldn't be surprised if they're just biding their time to see how we'll react.

I met Takami back when I was still a trainee.
Back then, she was already fighting on the front lines as an ace and making Fuso's headlines.

I was still wet behind the ears, so whenever I'd notice my classmates making a big deal about her I'd just ignore it and think "I'm sure she's nothing special."

But once, when she was on leave, I got to meet her and all my preconceived notions vanished.

I knew she was the only one I could trust to watch my back.

Do you suppose that letter is from Nao-chan's lover?


It seems like they're partners, but Kanno told me they never got to fly together.

One of the Witches coming from Fuso to join the 502nd will be Karibuchi Takami.
Of that there is no doubt.

I got a letter from her! It said "I hope to see you soon"!

So it's true!
I can finally team up with Takami!!

I hate to rain on your parade, but Takami won't be joining us for quite some time.

The 502nd was just loaned a sufficiently skilled Witch, so we'll have to bear with it... or so they say.

Well just swap 'em out for Takami!

They were talking about you.

It sounds like you're trying to get me thrown in prison.
I've already poached another Witch from Fuso's Naval Air Service anyhow.

I'll get Takami here all by myself!
It's all on me, no one else...!!

Welcome back, Nao-chan.

Great timing! I just got some salmiakki from back home.
Let's all have some!

Hey, you guys...

Let's make another bet.

Let's make another bet!

[side of bubble]Huh...
I guess we could play poker again...

Not that! I'm talkin' about dogfighting!
Whoever shoots down the most Neuroi wins!

What would we be betting?

We don't need to bet anything!

I see, so in order to get your partner here you have to pull in some good results.

I'm gonna get so good that no one can complain, then military headquarters will have to listen.

You seem really fired up about this.

So this Karibuchi Takami is pretty skilled, huh?

I guess that means I should try and woo her.

She'll be here before you know it!
I'll make sure of it!

But you know, she's probably already been stolen from you.

Right about now she's likely spending some superbly sweet time with a few of Fuso's aces.
I don't think even I could resist such temptation.

Yeah, I think so too.

She probably keeps a nice picture of you in her room,
But any time someone comes over, she lays it face down,

Anyway! Let's do a race to see who can shoot down the most Neuroi in a week!

The rules are the same as last time.
Fly out at the same time, find some Neuroi, and whoever shoots down the most wins.
Any complaints?

Hmm, I guess I'm up for it.

Me too.

But what do I get if I win?
Maybe something like free access to Nao-chan's youthful fruit?

After all, I can't fly until my repairs are done.

Then we're free today, right? Let's have some candy.
[next to the salmiakki]Here, this salmiakki just arrived from my home town.

We gotta give it our all for Orussia!
We don't got time to just lounge around!

The least you could do is act like you want to fix it.

You shoot down any Neuroi?

A small-type that was just wandering around.

Of course I can't, it's part of our bet.

Crashing into the river at the last minute threw the base into an uproar.

It seems the cause of your crash was a lack of fuel and fatigue.
Honestly, it's a miracle you weren't injured.

I'm the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing's Commander-in-Battle.
I have an obligation to stop a subordinate when they attempt to fight impulsively.

Kanno-san, as it is now, you are in no way fit to sortie.

You're right.

Work has been busy lately now that things are ramping up in the field for spring, but Chapter 6 will be done soon! I didn't realize some questions were asked...

Font used is indeed Yada Yada Yada.

These are great! I always do something cute for the "thank you for reading" page on MangaDex, so I think for that chapter I'll do a collage of these. If anyone else wants to do one, please submit it for inclusion!

Missing the last page, but here's what I got.

I think the second-to-last bubble should use "they're/they" instead of "it's/it" considering she's referring to the repairs, not to the striker itself.

I really like what you did with this one.

If you want, the SFX surrounding Nipa and Krupinski as they talk are "Nipa Nipa" and "Kuru Kuru". I know you don't normally do SFX, but I thought it was cute.

So soon after the last refers to the last time they gave up/loaned valuable personnel.
The gist of it seems to be the Navy isn't going to give the 502nd Takami since they just gave them Kanno. Rall then of course goes behind their backs and takes a less valuable Witch, Shimohara.

[Nipa]Welcome back!!

I didn't expect I'd have to take the long way back to base.

I'll cut to the chase.
We've confirmed the existence of a large-type Neuroi.

The large-type is air-based and is en route from Moscow.
Flying Officer Krupinski was lucky enough to take some photos which we've had developed.

Its target is here,

It's huge...

As you're all aware, the appearance of a large-type Neuroi is rare.
And of course, when they do appear, they aren't known to make the situation any better.

It's reasonable to assume the Neuroi isn't headed just for Petersburg,
But more specifically it's come to launch an attack on the 502nd's base.

Are there any other reasons it could be headed this way?

I won't say there aren't, but without a doubt I'd wager its target is this base.

If I'd have to guess, I'd say the reason the Neuroi were so persistent in their pursuit during today's sortie was that they were trying to reaffirm the location of our base.

No way!

This never would've happened if I'd taken out those Neuroi...

You shouldn't dwell on it too much, something like this was bound to happen eventually.

Of course, if you do want to dwell on it, I'm always willing to comfort you.

Thank you, you guys.

Operationally, the target will be designated as OX-1.
And seeing as the base's anti-aircraft guns have yet to be installed,
We're not in the position to sit around and wait for the Neuroi's attack.

Just looking at this behemoth is enough to make me sick,
But luckily for us, its speed is especially slow - only reaching around twenty kilometers an hour.
This means we'll be able to mount an attack on it at daybreak.

Tomorrow, we Witches will intercept it with our full force.

But I've already made my own tea.

Don't worry about it.
Consider it an act of gratitude in the hope that you don't leave the 502nd.

Of course, I didn't call you here to talk about that.
It's about tomorrow's counter-attack on the large-type Neuroi.
I wanted to hear your evaluation of the Witches here before the operation begins.

Would it be appropriate to ask Sasha-san?

I have nothing to say.

Well, recently, I'd heard you've been playing a game where if someone does something to annoying the higher-ups, you'd try and get them food supplies.
I figured I'd contribute.
You see, a while ago, I scribbled on General Kammhuber's face.
I'm hoping to get some teacakes.

I've got salmiakki.

Now then, I'd suppose for the commander...

Oh? Starting with me, huh?

It's a necessity. Any capable person should be able to handle it.
Plus it gives me more time to relax.

I suppose you don't mind if I tell that to the secret police? Or maybe a revolution would be-

That's prohibited.

I also think it would be a good idea to let the paper publish a few criticisms of your command.

Seeing as I'm such a broad-minded individual, I don't mind accepting a few criticisms.
But I'm not going to stop delegating.

As for Nipa, I'd heard she'd had a sunny disposition,
But as it stands now, she's quite reserved.

My guess is that it has to do with being separated from her former colleagues.
However, I don't think it has any bearing on her skill in the air.

Flying Officer Juutilainen, right?
I'd tried taking her from the 501st. Witches knowledgeable in winter warfare are always a valuable asset.

I don't have much to say about Krupinski as of now.
Though it's a wonder that someone as foolhardy as her can fight so well.

Is it true that Krupinski has tried to come onto you in the past?

I'd rather leave the 502nd than talk about that.

Then what about Kanno?

You think it has to do with Lieutenant Karibuchi?

Her dependence on the Lieutenant may pose a danger.

Even still, she's a veteran who's survived in Orussia before.
I wouldn't think she'd let her skills diminish...

But one's magic power can be affected by one's state of mind.
Do you think we should try to be more mindful of Kanno?

Regardless of rank, Kanno would certainly put up resistance to anyone trying to command her without letting her explain herself.
Though I do think she'd be willing to listen to Sasha-san.

Actually, we've already had a talk.

And... do I even need to ask?

I think she understood, but she refuses to accept it.

I'm not sure if we can reach an understanding.

And it won't be easy to get Lieutenant Karibuchi here any faster in the first place.
Orussia isn't the only place forced to deal with the Neuroi.

You can't force sentiment by reason alone.
Even if through a well-intentioned warning.

If you want to fly higher, it's best to learn from experience.

I can't say I like the idea of making her go through such a painful experience.

I feel the same way.

Nevertheless, this will be the 502nd's first interception mission.
Even if we can't avoid stumbling, we should do our best not to lose any Witches.

If that should happen, make sure I never live it down.
I don't even mind if you start slinging stones.

I also saved them the older way too, in case that is preferable when it comes to typesetting.

It's about tomorrow's interception operation.

You know I'm not good with all the serious discussion.

Ensign Kanno,
You've gotten close, haven't you?

I haven't done anything. She wouldn't let me anyway.

I didn't mean that.

If you're talking about my trust in Nao-chan...

She's a rude, one-track-minded delinquent,
And even when it seems like she's enjoying herself on the surface, she rarely opens up.
She's a first-class ace, but getting her under control would be like trying to tame a wild animal.

I love those kinds of girls.

Leave your tastes out of it.

Our tastes are what make us human, Edytha.

You never change.

The 502nd was only just formed,
And they expect us to be the main force in this new counter-offensive going forward.
We can't afford to lose anyone.

Please, tell me how you really feel.

I'm tired of having to lose my comrades.

In that case, why don't you stick her with the Captain or yourself?

A clever, skilled child.
One who hasn't lost their heart after fighting in Orussia, and one who always makes it back alive.
It only seemed appropriate.

Wonder if mine got the same treatment.

Why would it? Yours is good as new.

You repaint the damn thing anytime you get hit anyway.

It's not like I'm trying to get hit.

My magic engine's been stalling up a lot lately, I wonder if it's defective.

[Used up all the reserves replacing the damaged parts.]

If I didn't have to stop the other day then the Neuroi may not have even been able to follow me.

Stop tryin' to abuse the maintenance guys, you're gonna start a strike.

Don't say that, Kanno! Just for that, I'm not giving you any more salmiakki!

I don't want it anyway.
And if you don't wanna strike, just fly more carefully.

And if you don't want a strike, make sure not to completely wreck your Striker again.

We'll face the enemy in three-man formations as planned.

Kanno-san, Krupinski-san, Nipa-san,
You'll be known as Unit Anna.

Hey, if we shoot down the large-type Neuroi and get put in the papers,

Nothing is showing on radar, and we don't have any reports from our ground observation posts about the large-type Neuroi.

Anything via acoustic location?

Nothing out of the ordinary.

It's never easy, is it.

I suggest splitting up.

Unit Anna head east and search for the enemy. Unit Boris will take the west.
If you find the large-type Neuroi, do not engage and wait until backup arrives.

You ran off too fast!

Didn't Sasha say we were supposed to fly in formation?

If you wanna follow I ain't gonna stop ya'!

I've seen that behemoth before.
That feeling over overwhelming dread...

They're just small-fries, but they don't stop coming...
If we keep going like this, we're done for...

Give me your guns, I'll take over from here.
Your Strikers still work. You guys can make it out, somehow.

You can still fly too, Nao-chan.
Go, head straight for the base.

Not a chance.
This is Europe... This is our sky. We can't ask you to get caught up in all this.

But I've been fightin' here forever!

And if you make it back, you'll be able to meet Karibuchi Takami one day.

When you get back to the base, eat some salmiakki for me, okay?

Eat it yourself! You guys don't have to go fightin' for me! You should be the ones going back!!
I can still...

Fine, you can fly back to base on your own.
We'll be right behind you, just in case.

[Rall]There's so much.

[Rossmann]I have some more.

Doing nothing but paperwork all the time can be tiring,

So something like instead of showering is nice change of pace.

If I had known that I'd have offered to help with the paperwork instead of helping to clean.
Not only do you have the reports on the operation itself, but the resupply requests for the weapons and parts...

The Strikers we poured all of our spare parts into went "defective" in just a few days.

You can already picture the higher-up's grimaces.

Maybe I should try pestering them for some newer models.

Aren't you worried about attracting disapproval?

It's alright to be a little lenient on the front line.
No doubt they'll have their work cut out for them soon enough anyway.

That may be the case, but still!

Wherever you go in the base, those three are all anyone's talking about.

"Even those who are a handful are..." well that's not really right,
But it's true it's hard to take your eyes off them.

I've heard the next two coming are quite exceptional themselves.

Quite exceptional at breaking things too, no doubt.

By the way, do you really think it's a good idea to have that kind of a nickname?
And no matter how outstanding they are, having people who relentlessly break their Strikers is nothing but trouble.

If it gets worse from here on out, I suppose we'll need to start worrying about the commander's faltering judgement.

I'm not quite sure whether you have confidence in me or not,
But I'll pray it's the former.
