Article in Other Languages



The 2006 novel "Suomus Misfits Squadron" and the 2008 TV anime "Strike Witches" series showed the exploits of magical girls known as 'Witches' fighting against the mysterious enemy Neuroi. In these circumstances, the focus of the series' development was the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, which played the leading role in " Strike Witches".
However, there are many witches other than the Strike Witches in the world of this story, and their tales have been developed in various media such as novels, manga and anime. The various stories of witches in the world told in this way are collectively referred to as the "World Witches" series.
