I don't know... the general opinion I've heard about GONZO series for the past few years isn't very encouraging. I wouldn't necessarily put it past them to try something stupid, like an unexpected genre shift into drama near the end, and kill off some of the girls.

Hope it's Sanya's Hanger's-on. Don't even know her name. Otherwise, one of the red-heads that's not Shirley would be fine, since no one really caers about them.

There's a Strike Witches Complete Ending Theme Collection (temp title) scheduled to come out on 8 Oct for 2940 yen.

...Get off my internet. Eila is awesome. And Minna and Barkhorn are perfectly likable as well.

I'm not saying anyone HAS to die, I'm saying we can't rule it out just because the show hasn't seemed like the sort that would kill off characters thus far.

That's true.

I'm just saying, if someone's gotta go, let it be someone I don't like. Like the English girl or such.

lol Sky Girls' Otoha-Yuuki vibes. If anyone's going to die, it'll be Yoshika's father, who is somehow alive, having been investigating the Neuroi in their world :P j/k

Fumikane Shimada(Character Designer) says that he will not do to a sad story.
(from the novel of Strike Witches ”スオムスいらん子中隊がんばる”  Suomus Miscellany squadron's efforts)  
So I think that no one dies.

I can't see any deaths in the last few episodes myself, they've showed hints of Yoshika's latent magic, which is supposed to be strong, but nothing really big yet so I think that will most likely happen in the end.
I hope they show it in the end anyway, it was one of the reasons Mio recruitted Yoshika in the first place.

I think there is a great chance of this because...
Spoiler for (slight spoiler for manga ch.4):

I'm enjoying this show quite a bit but, thanks to Selkirk for the novel translations as it is the most exciting part of the Strike Witches releases at this moment (IMHO).

Strike Witches Character Song Collection Album CD

CD Japan lists the V.A. / Strike Witches Character Song Collection (Title subject to change), with a scheduled release date of Wednesday, October 8, 2008.

Among other things, it will include an insert song by Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke (CV: Tanaka Rie).

A number of Japanese fans expect Minna's insert song will be heard in Episode 8 of Strike Witches.

One word to describe episode 8 ending...."EHHHHHHH?!?"


Well ok more like a sound then a word but a very moment to be sure...Other then that bit the dogfight was quite well done this time and makes up for the rather meh attempt at putting a love story in...

Aggressive possessiveness came to my mind

The same could be said for Eila and Sanya.

Most adorable growl yet from Perrine.
...Can I get a timestamp for that? I missed it yet again.

A good dogfight this time. I just wish the upload on crunchyroll that I watched wasn't so pitifully low quality. When characters flying across the screen leave streaks through the gathered pixels, something's wrong.

As for the rest...
Spoiler for Episode 8:
