Anybody know where I can watch the first season uncensored?

The currency in this anime is odd to me. Im on episode 4 of the first season and apparently 20 yen back then is worth 400 bowls of rice. 20 yen is like 20 cents in the US so....its interesting


The yen is the Japanese dollar. Today it's worth about a 0.001 but back during world war two? or worse yet a alternate history world war 2 that didn't happen while japan is instead the 'Fuso Empire?' perhaps the Yen is worth more.

Back in WW2 the Italian Lira was worth.. something. in the 1980's one USD was worth 1100 Lira. Of course now Italy uses the Euro so...


You may not notice it in the US. since it used to be one of the most stable and reliable currencies. But in my lifetime I've seen the Canadian dollar go from 1.20 USD down to .62 USD and back up to par.

Short answer:
I don't.

Longer answer:
You would need to find a site that posted rips of the Japanese DVD.

I was thinking perhaps Funimation was bold enough to post the uncensored version, so I popped over to check episode 7 (which had the most scenes to censor) and was presented with a request to put in my birthdate and the "TV-MA" rating. Alas, it didn't meet your request. It still had the same shafts of light (or steam in the bath) as when it was originally shown on CR. Given this, I expect the Funimation DVDs use the censored version, as well.

Actually I was able to find most of the episodes uncensored....just used google and had multiple sites opened to check....and yea I think episode 7 had the most to hide....and the sites were mainly www.goodanime.net and www.animeshippuuden.com

But anyway I finished the first season....and well.....Im not sure if this anime was hyped or anything...since it was from 2007.....but it didnt seem that great to me.....usually I have the same opinions as the people I usually see around here but......not too thrilled about this one. I would give this anime either a 7 or an 8.....maybe a 7.5......because I just love Loli's. And I think the main thing I thought was kinda....strange to me was.....do the Witches like....ever get hit with the beams? I mean they can just use their shield 24/7 and practically never run out of energy....(Im using the last episode as my example)....only time I can recall people getting hit by beams are when it was a certain Witches episode dedicated to them....so they space out or something.....and then when Sakamoto got hit due to her not having her shield working.

Actually I think the biggest thing to me was how each episode of the first half of the season...maybe more.....was just dedicated to a specific character to try and give us background information.....maybe its just me....but I dont think I have ever seen an anime where the entire half of a season was being dedicated to background information for the cast.


But anyways Im going to start the 2nd season now....since I am curious to who the new girl was at the end of the first season.....what happened to the general....what happened to the Neuroi....but most of all.....I need to see more Luccini-chan now!

Ah screw it....I like this show. Now I can watch the 2nd season on Crunchyroll! .....wonder if its censored

It's not censored at all here on the good ole CR. The end of the first season and the Neroi reappearing in the second season don't mesh quite right, but I'm not going to worry about continuity.

Yea....it didnt follow together well at all. I mean I can understand if Neuroi in 1 area have been beaten.....meaning other areas would have Neuroi....but having a GIGANTIC Neuroi hive out of nowhere is....idk....awkward.

Finished episode 1 of 2nd season....time to battle again!

Im glad we got to know the ranks of the girls in episode 2.....was Kinda surprised to see Yeager was a Captain. And I have no idea what Lucchini's rank Ensign is. But its cool....looking forward to episode 3.......I actually love the Strike Witches episodes where they just goof off all day.

I watched the first 2 eps of Season 2 and got a real kick out of it, loli, big guns, alternate history (and strange geography - North America is very star shaped) etc. I purchased the boxed DVD set of Season 1 which is uncensored and contains a cloth shoulder patch of the fighter unit. The history of the Neuroi remains a huge mystery and adds a nice bit of intrigue. As one of the girls said in a season 1 ep: if not for the Neuroi, who knows maybe the nations would be at war with each other. Kind of a world war..... a fun series!

episode 4 was cool I guess. Wondering why Zucchini couldnt fly that striker though. At first I thought it was cuz she didnt have enough power or w/e.....but since that Striker just sucks up magic like crazy.....why would it shock her....wouldnt it have just let her faint? Oh well who cares.
And since when do Panty shots become censored?

K finished episode 3.....and I got a question....how come the Neuroi in episode 1 was able to completely regenerate after it had been completely destroyed....yet all the other Neuroi so far have been destroyed the first time?

And really....every military person besides the Strike Witches are practically useless....sure the first episode showed them destroy 1 Neuroi....but then after that for some reason they couldnt do a thing.

Anyway cant wait to see the next episode! Oh and the anime is censored D:

Yes, ensign is a rank, typically in a naval force, above a midshipman, but below a sub-lieutenant or lieutenant j.g. (junior grade).

As an ensign is a commissioned officer, that means she technically outranks Miyafuji, who is a sergeant, a non-commissioned officer.

Of course now someone with more knowledge of military ranks in their pinky finger than I have in my entire body will probably come along and point out all the technical errors and omissions I have made.

Oh ok. Trying to remember all the people below her....think it was Miyafuji.....than Lynne.....and then I guess it was Lucchini.
I really don't know why....but I got a little fascination for ranks O.o

Funimation DVD release is uncensored just like the Japanese DVD release.
The Japanese Blu-ray box release of the first season also contains Funimation's subtitles and audio.

Well I'm a rabid Strike Witches fan so far it's fantastic the battle sequences (need I mention Mio's epic destruction of the Neuroi ?) So overall I'm thrilled with this season and cant wait to see what happens the character development is good and it's just as good as season one.

Heh. No, that's pretty much correct. An ensign would be equivalent to an American 2nd Lieutenant - in other words, a commissioned officer at the lowest rung of the career ladder who is just beginning to learn the trade.

Given the political infighting that surrounded air forces of the theoretical time (WWII or just prior), the only enlisted who could be pilots had the rank of sergeant or above. Miyufuji and Lynette's ranks may be nods to that.

All in all, I'm enjoying the second season, but I'd like to see the plot progress just a bit faster.
