strikewitches2-5

Hype is a funny thing.  Ever since Strike Witches debuted, all I heard from some anime fans was how it was nothing but creepy loli bait and an example of everything wrong with modern anime.  A big portion of the criticism was that the girls don’t wear pants or skirts, instead having a formal military […]
