Ecchi Witches, Ep. 5

Well. At least now we know which side of the road Miyafuji walks on.

Yes, it was about Charlotte (Shirley) Yeager and Fransesca Lucchini. Turns out Shirley’s a speed freak and she wants to break the speed of sound. Best she can do is about 800 kph (mach 1 = about 1200 kph for the metric impaired). Yes, it’s a beach episode, so we see the girls in their swimsuits. Well, until Shirley’s disintegrates in the midst of battle. Understandable, considering what it (and she) had just been through.

We’ve reached the point where logic is getting thrown out of the window though; what shredded her swimsuit should have shredded her. Not to mention the minor detail of Miyafuji and Lynn suddenly not knowing how to swim, despite getting dumped in the ocean during episode 3.

Next week is Sanya.

And Crunchyroll needs to get it’s act together…. I can’t download! Says media mods only now…. hope the sales plan didn’t get tossed, or I’m back to being a pirate. :(

Edit: Oddly for a swimsuit episode, we get to see pants!

  1. They fixed it; I just bought and downloaded.

  2. Gad. That was just as bad as I feared it would be.

    Well, I went into it expecting stupidity, and I got it. The part that bothered me the most (aside from Miyafuji suddenly turning into the mad groper) was actually the inconsistency in Bishop and Miyafuji suddenly forgetting how to swim. Then there was the problem with, why are the only two girls able to get to the base and launch in addition to Shirley, the pair that were totally exhausted? And they forgot to bring their guns? (I need to recheck, Shirley didn’t seem to have hers for the longest time.)

    I’m downloading now.

    Interesting thought: if the striker units can be tuned for offense, defense, or speed, then Mio’s sword cuts (everyone’s weapons) are enhanced by the striker. We already knew Lynn was using magic to enhance her shots (but was she wearing a striker unit during practice?) And how big a shield could Miyafuji create if she were given a striker unit tuned for defense?

    OT: The original Strike Witches manga was canned for being even more ecchi than the series, even that’s how the manga-ka was ordered to do it: http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2008/07/30/strike-witches-canned-over-cake/
    He also introduced tank mecha musume. Perrine kicks butt.

    Egads. I now see that Gonzo was picked to animate, with malice aforethought.

    Also, I’m a little slow on the slang. I went in wondering, “Good Lord, what did they DO with that cake to get the manga canceled? Smear the icing all over each other’s–”

    Ah, never mind.
