OK, visually, I think Kanno who's the girl with the scarf and scars has enough going for her to make her own series. That would work for me, a single character POV story, rather than a repeat of the "Who are we? This is!" ensemble premise that was the first season.

Because beyond her, it's like the first cast but only much blander because they're not named after fighter pilots or ones I know at least. It also doesn't seem to be as Allied-Axis minded as the basic premise of the franchise which was "WWII takes a break to fight aliens. Together. With animal girls, why not?"

I would say more likely the latter. I picked one of the more obvious gender-swapped names (Georgette Lemare ) and looked up the actual male counterpart:

Note that he actually served with a French unit operating in the Soviet Union for a time near the end of the war. That is some attention to detail, given that the Brave Witches are a unit operating out of Orussia, the obvious equivalent to the Soviet Union.
