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...

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

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...

Flying Officer Krupinski! Flying Officer Krupinski! Please report to the hanger!
I repeat...

Looks like my repairs are done.
Wonder if I have to go on patrol.

I'll make sure to do my best to prevent the collapse of humanity.


You're still here?


You don't miss a beat.
I guess I'll make some coffee or something...

All out.

...Let's go to the rec room.

Man, you can really breeze through a book when you're not in combat.

You really like books, don't you?

Can't read 'em if you're dead.

I wish I'd gotten some records or something,
But I only asked for sweets.

Too bad we don't have a player.

Oh, right.

Why don't we have a snowball fight?

Where'd this come from?

You keep throwing 'em 'til your opponent can't even move.
When they're completely buried, you win.

No holds barred, huh... Wouldn't the usual thing be to ask to play cards?

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.

We could just blame it on the Flying Officer.

I guess if we're really gonna play cards, then we should go with Rossman-san,
But gambling with someone we've just met doesn't sit right with me.

You don't gotta play for money.
Playing the instructor for favors ain't a bad idea.

Were you talking about me?

I'm a newcomer,
You don't have to go so far for me.

Sorry, it just felt right.
Did you need something...?

It's not too important,
But if you two are free, would you care to join me outside?

I wanted to invite the two of you out here to get to know you a bit better,

And since neither of you has to sortie, I figured now would be the perfect opportunity.

For what?

A shooting range?

Kanno, look! It's our strikers!

So the repairs are all finished, huh?

Almost, but they still can't fly.

I had to ask if I could borrow them.

So what, you're planning on having us put them on and do some shooting practice?

That's right.

Would you show me the skill of the 502nd's aces?

Sure, but just shooting's kinda boring.

Oh, would you like to make a bet? I don't mind.

One round. Whoever has the higher score wins.
If I win...

I'll listen to anything you have to say.



Alright, the two of you then.
Nipa-san and Kanno-san versus myself.

No take-backs!
Can I go first, Kanno!?

There are 5 targets.
Whoever shoots the most, wins.

Got it!!

Here I go!

One left... Not too bad, I guess.

Looks like four hits.
It's alright if you wanna give up, Rossman-san. After all, We should try to ration our ammo.

You two did exceptionally.
I should've expected as much from a pair of ace Witches.

Giving up without trying it myself would just be boring, don't you agree?

...Witches are still human, so it's not my place to say they can't have idle thoughts or emotions,

But it's important they learn to control 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...!?


Now is the time to focus on the 502nd.

Hold on a second! How do you know about Takami!

Not only does she have extraordinary concentration and skill,

Looks like I win.

But she knows so much about us, and she's only just arrived.

Just who is she?

To Be Continued...

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.

[D-san]I see! But, wasn't I the one that took this picture?

Of course, you can also expect additional drawings and even a special chapter!

That's all for today!
Everyone interested, be sure to wait for the follow-up like good girls, okay?

Nice job as usual, farawaylander.

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?".

Unrelated, I realized on re-reading everything the other day that I read 本日 as 日本 when I translated >>12605 and never really thought about it, but it should actually read as "Today's Menu".
