Anything Similar to Strike Witches
 
Given my love for Strike Witches (anime-wise, the first series,) I'm looking for some shows that are similar to it.

And no, I don't mean shows that have pantless girls crammed into it (which is what people have in mind, disregarding any other important elements that made it good IMO.) What I tend to look for in it are the following:

Great character designs (moe character designs specifically)
Good characterization
Storyline that is character oriented
Action scenes are a plus
While not really too necessary, fanservice is a plus. Though I wouldn't mind it being ecchi oriented as long as the character designs are good.

At the same time, I do not want:

Anything that has AIC as the production company
Shows that tend to overdo it

To avoid jumping to conclusions I have watched:
Strike Witches I believe I'm looking for something similar to it, since it's my favorite.
Sky Girls (which was meh.)
Strike Witches 2 (which sucked IMO.)
IS: Infinite Stratos (which isn't as good as people say it is.)

Sky Girls? It certainly is similar in that they're young girls that participate in the military using flying weapons/machines.

obvious suggestion is obvious

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha.

Well... yeah Mahou Senki Lyrical Nanoha is as close as you can get. The first two seasons are great, third season YMMV.

I've only watched first season, but I never got to finished. Looks like I give both of these seasons a go. Thanks for the recommendations. ;)

Oh man, you missed out. Nanoha A's (season two) is the best of all three. :)
