I'd think the only reason Takei made the list at all was because of the DS game, novel characters weren't even included to begin with, it seems.

And yes, Yoshika's cooking is healthy--but there was never any mention of it being tasteful...unless you like Nattou. And while I like her upbeat character, living with a girl even remotely like Yoshika would drive me stir-crazy out of my mind in three weeks.
She'd be cute as a little daughter... she'd be mind numbing as a wife.

No I have brothers and have spent time with other males. Now sure the living areas we occupied looked like pig pens and we yelled at each other now and again, but hell that's just how it is. Putting up with girls nagging you who you have nothing in common with is way more annoying.

And yes this IS an inane topic, but we all know that we discuss far dumber things with our freinds every day.

In regards to full transformation, while not cannonical, one Pixiv artist has provided a rather amusing comic series on it:

- The very first thing she'd do to drive me nuts would be to get rid of all my FPS games. My OWN MOTHER AND STEPMOTHER wouldn't DARE touch my FPS games.

This is why I and my brother almost killed each other--other than sharing the same room, we shared the smae computer. And it was a war over disk space: Colin McRae Rally VS Ghost Recon. I don't want a wife who likes what I like, I want one who can tolerate what I like (and me tolerate her likes) so that I don't feel like I'm living with my own clone.

I am working on manga project which is an alternative Strike Witches story.
The idea about making such project is old. I've done first script pages in 2008 and right now I have the main storyline finished and 2 short OVA-like stories in progress.
The main project is called:
Spoiler for Strike Witches: Project Raven Shield:

and I can only tell that there is a lot messing in time and there is also second war with Neuroi in 80's.
First OVA project will include 6 chapters and the main character will be Gertrud Barkhorn and first main character from Raven Shield.
The second one is in early 90's and it's telling about new "witches" who are a bunch of kids trying to reactivate the squadron as airshow group "NEW WITCHES" and the title is "Strike Witches: Revolution".

I just thaught that its a good time to share some informations about this project since I really want to publish it as an fan internet manga. I've already have got concept arts and I am starting slowly witch the scetches of the first pages.

Hope that I awake your interest

See that's just because you were competing over the comp. If you'd had two of them it would have been sweet you could have set up a LAN or teamed up online, which is what me and my brother have done. The clone bit is just silly let's face it you're much more likely to get on well over a period of time with someone like you.

the only real minus of living with someone who is very much like you is that it means less diversity..
most people don't try new stuff by themselves, so meeting other people who are different from them is one of the best ways of finding things which you may like and wouldn't try out otherwise :P


all in all it really depends on what kind of personality you have to decide who this will work with another copy of you..
if you are really stubborn and aren't willing to compromise then it might not be a good idea to live with someone like you as that would just explode at some point...
but if both parties are well balanced then it can be just fine..

I got Tiger in Desert Part 2 while I was at Comiket... and damn, it was good.

Spoiler:

Unfortunately, no official English translation again, so I suppose someone'll have to get started... <_<;

Also got Sengoku Witches, but haven't had time to go over that properly yet.

Here's my main question on Tiger in Desert: Does it have more Tank Witch goodness? Or are they going back to the usual Strike Witches?

Yes we need more ground combat. (More so since I've now gotten hooked on the Section 8 beta freefalling, jump jetting, customizable power armor for the win!) Well that and powered through everything translated regarding Red Eyes.

There's more. Lots more.

Heck, what isn't there to like in this volume? It was simply awesome.

... I mediately went on a google spree and now I'm torn between amusement and disappointment that I can't find any scans of Tiger in Dessert 2, but I could find scans of some random cliche hentai doujin released on the same con. -_-

Could you give me the kanji of the title? That might help with searching.

Nobody has scanned it yet, but here's the kanji 砂漠の虎 後編. Both Witch in Africa and Tiger in Desert vol.1 took some time before they got scanned (as in over a month for the former), while the random hdoujinshi get scanned immediately... <_<;.

(Of course, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the random H-doujinshi aren't actually scanned, but just uploaded by the circle after Comiket. For a small unknown circle, that'd be a quick and easy advertisement. And heck, maybe they just want people to, er... enjoy, their work.)

So sort of like the Benjamin Franklins of cartoon porn thenů

Pics of the SW stuff I got while I was in Japan. I would've gotten more, but I never managed to reach the main male sections on all three days of Comiket. For some reason, I was assigned to the yaoi-ridden West Halls within my group... Then again, there was also the issue of having no more space in my luggage.

Spoiler for Tiger in Desert 2:


I also got a 501JFW velcro badge thing, which I forgot to include with the SW junk. It's in another pic in the folder, along with some SW card game pics and other assorted junk (might be NSFW).

They need to animate the novels too. I wonder who would be the most popular characters. Maybe Elma and Ursula?

Ursula basically becomes a non-character later on, since she ends up doing, well, nothing. Beurling would probably be the most popular character. She gets quite a bit of back-story in Chap6 of Book1. Now, if only a certain lazbusy someone would get translating...
Besides Tomoko( and maybe Haruka), Beurling definitely gets the most fanart. Rudel probably gets the most for a supporting character.
I rather like Elma, but she's far from being popular.

I feel if there was an anime based on the original novels, they'd increase Ursula's role, since she provides a link with the previous TV anime as Erica's sister.

Also, I got Patrick Galbraith's new "Otaku Encyclopedia" book printed by Kodansha, and noticed that in the "Essential Anime to Watch" section in the back, Strike Witches is on the "Moe Shows" part. Shout-out.

And unlike some people ITT who put down the TV anime so much in comparison to the novels, I thought it was a rather excellent production on multiple levels...

I love the anime too. Best one from 2008, in my opinion. The anime has quite a good reputation in some boards.
