Look to the skies – the Earth’s brave young defenders take flight!

When humanity is threatened by an alien menace, when all other options have been exhausted, mankind’s last line of defence will not be tanks, planes, or battleships – rather, it will be brave young girls who take to the skies to fight for the planet!

Set in a world that’s both familiar and yet strangely different to our own, STRIKE WITCHES revolves around a team of girls with magical powers, who wear special fighter plane equipment in order to fight in thrilling aerial battles. In this world, the Industrial Revolution was powered by magic rather than steam - and the Wright Sisters invented a magical aircraft to replace broomsticks.

Following the progress of these girls through this bitter war, STRIKE WITCHES will chart their triumphs, their tragedies, their friendships and their rivalries. In a world torn asunder by war, these innocent young women come of age on the battlefield - all against the backdrop of some of the most stunning aerial battles ever seen in any visual medium.

Thrilling battles, superb mecha and high drama– STRIKE WITCHES delivers in full on the promise of Japanese animation!
