"Strike Witches: Suomus Misfits Squadron" is a series of novels in the media mix franchise "Strike Witches" originally created by Fumikane Shimada & Projekt Kagonish. The author is Noboru Yamaguchi. Illustrations by Fumikane Shimada and Teiko Ueda.

Three volumes were released by Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko between 2006 and 2008.

It is one of the earliest works in the media mix development of "Strike Witches" and "World Witches".

Due to the author's death, publication of the series was suspended after three volumes. For a long time, it was regarded as an unfinished early work and "never to receive a sequel". However, it was decided to remake the series in 2018.

The reboot version is titled "Silent Witches Suomus Misfits Squadron ReBOOT!" and the credits for the original work are Fumikane Shimada & Projekt World Witches. Yamaguchi is credited as the original author, and the new author is Toshihiko Tsukiji, who had a close friendship with Noboru Yamaguchi before his death. Illustrations are by Fumikane Shimada and Kosuke Tsukinami.

The first volume was released on 1 October 2018 and there are already four volumes published as of 2022.


September 1939. After more than 20 years of silence since the end of the First Great War, the strange enemy Neuroi suddenly resume their activities. They have engulfed Central Europe's Ostmark ('Ostland' in the early works) and are closing in on the northern great power of Karlsland. Countries around the world were sending volunteer Witches and weapons to support Karlsland, which was growing weary in the face of the powerful Neuroi.

The threat of the Neuroi also loomed over Suomus, a small Nordic country across the Baltic Sea from Karlsland, and the government requested the countries of the world for international support.

Tomoko Anabuki, an elite witch in the Fuso Imperial Army who became a hero for her exploits during the Fuso Sea Incident, was assigned to a dispatch to Europe and was eagerly awaiting her next stage of activity.

However, Tomoko received an order to go to Suomus, which is far from the frontline, rather than to the fierce battleground of Karlsland.

Tomoko's despondency was short-lived, and she was elated, thinking that she could go to the front line if she achieved good results in Suomus. But when she finally arrives at her new post, she finds that the Witches dispatched to Suomus are all dropouts and outcasts from various countries. Even the squadron commander of the local army was an unreliable, younger flight lieutenant.

Thus, the "Suomus Volunteer Independent Flying Squadron", also known as the "Misfits Squadron", was born.

With no motivation, no ability, and no guts, those girls who were called "misfits" now begin their battle to protect the world...

Differences in settings編集

While the first season of the TV anime version is set in 1944 Britannia (the Battle of Britain in the real world, moved four years later), "Suomus Misfits Squadron" is set in 1939 Suomus (Finland in the Winter War in the real world).

In addition, due to the franchise development of the "World Witches" series, differences in settings and other aspects can be seen throughout the various media. This work, in particular, started before the animation series, so the differences are especially large.
