Does that mean it is a remake or alternate retelling. Crappy news if that is true.

So basically a new series to cast other JFW in the limelight.

Which is great if I'm right.

I'm suspecting that others instincts that the series will cover other JFWs will turn out to be true.

More or less they will focus on the other strike witch units from the source material in these ova's.

So it's not a fresh new pair, but just a washing of the old pair of pants then? Laughing

I don't know where else to put this, but I just wanted to tell that the information on this article is partly misinterpreted/outdated.

Yamibun didn't say there were going to be marines, the marines comment was part of another conversation. The tweet this article is referring to is a reply to some other tweet, but because that tweet was removed the context of the marine comment disappeared as well.

Yamibun tweeted 19 hours ago this clarification
https://twitter.com/​yamibun/​status/​389754173152976896
He says:
"The comment about marines has nothing to do with Strike Witches, but at the very least, I would wish you to see the comment it was referring to"

It means it'll be about another JFW/squad. Going by the name of the new series, it'll most likley be about a JFW/Squad in the Nordic regions.

But I have no idea if it is one that already got covered in the LN's/manga. But I have no doubt that it'll be a new story and that it will have new characters(although that depends on the JFW they pick).

No, the OVA series will be about the 501st.

... So the Third season may be a Pacific front or some similar nonsense? Or Suzuki trying to say the Third season reboot doesn't mean the series with the "known character-types" people want to see won't get continued eventually, no, we'll get all new characters, with probably the same traits, in a new setting for now?

Woo - can you fell my excitement? - hoo.

I think the "franchise" is lightweight but I like the voice actresses/characters they have now. What happened, ran out of ways they could do character episodes without advancing some sort of alien/war/any plot?
