Further details about the upcoming February event are given, like the actresses attending (list subject to change) and the venue. Not to mention some explicit confirmation that the PV for the Brave Witches anime will indeed be shown there. A special card for the mobage will also be given to the attendees of the event.

On an interesting note, who the heck is this Witch?

It's a Fuso witch, at the very least.

Kind of a bummer that all those 501st seiyuus are there to announce their replacement.

Possibly a new character. Would probably make adapting the new JFW easier.

I know everyone assumed the mysterious stranger was Sadako, but...

Didn't the early things say that what was shown after the end of OVA3 in theaters was a 'new mysterious witch silhouette' meaning it would be a new one attending 502nd since the rest of 502nd was visible?
At least that's what I seem to remember from the /a/ threads in May. I don't remember that many assuming it was Sadako, just saying she would be the protagonist if something.

It's Sanya.
The hair style matches and the familiar's ears appear to be that of a cat.
The fur atop the ears could just be an added design.
>> No. 8826 ID: 675f5918

Why is Sanya holding a Type 99? What's the deal with the weird shoulder area of her uniform?

I don't think it's Sanya. It's probably our new MC, and the MC is always going to be a Fuso witch.

Whoever has generally been making the threads always makes them at really inconvenient times for me, i try to make sure and bump them as much as possible when i'm awake and around (that's a hint if you ever want to make a thread). Wish others would as well. That one guy who made a billion threads a week never actually bumped his own.

Don't worry anon. I'll make sure we at least get a Christmas/Lucchini thread as is customary.

I'm not certain you can say she's holding a type99. Unless I'm missing something.
>> No. 8832 ID: 675f5918

The outline to me looks like the handguard and drum magazine (bottom right of the silhouette) on the Type 99 cannon Fuso witches use.

I should have specified cannon, given that there are quite a few type 99s.

Here? Or at least I hope so..
Many probably just gave up on caring till the new season starts since there's nothing left to do or discuss about we haven't been doing for years already on a fast board like /a/.

I'm still sort of confused by this part. Also the circular part around the shoulder is.. really high? For the iron sight, unless it isn't one.

Here it is blown up. Looks like she's got some kind of a backpack on with a horizontal cylinder thing on the top.
>> No. 8837 ID: 675f5918

Thing up top is probably a scarf fluttering in the wind.

Nishizawa is looking like a pretty decent guess.
>> No. 8838 ID: 4aa33aa6
The ears don't seem to really match up with Nishizawa's.
Silhouette has really thin ears and small independent fluff parts in the tips unlike Nishi's.
>> No. 8847 ID: a3868032
To me it seems like this is a character that is on the ground, the background some sort of stylized forest and gusting snow. Usually when there's an action-shot with the witch holding they're weapon, they are usually in their respective element, be it land or air.

Could it be that she's a tank witch?
>> No. 8848 ID: a3868032
I made a separate reply for what I'm about to say because I don't really have any justification for believing this, but since this is 502 and part of that unit's "lore" is that they are aided by Aurora's troupe, I sort of think that the mystery witch could be Häyhä.

I'm probably wrong, but regardless who she is, I still think the perspective of the background could suggest that she's a tank witch.

So were there any big updates from today? The other thread died right when thr event was finishing.
>> No. 9273 ID: 4aa33aa6
I'll shamelessly paste here what anon said in the thread for all to see.

- It's a 502nd focus
- Primary Setting is St. Petersburg
- The mysterious unknown witch is a Fuso Witch Hikari Karibuchi, sister of 508th squad's Takami Karibuchi. She wears dark blue fuso navy clothes. She is apparently a witch full of guts, self-confidence, and physical fitness.
- More Military Focus compared to the previous series
- Set in between S1 and S2.
And people are saying the PV looked cool.

Also warning not to take all said yet for granted.

Another Witch from Fuso? WHAT THE HELL?

Why only Fuso? Why not a witch from Orussia? the story is in Orussia and we still ONLY GOT TWO orussians witches.
>> No. 9276 ID: 675f5918

A Fuso MC is probably perceived as necessary for the Japanese audience, and making an entirely new character allows them to continue the formula (The singular MC's adventures supported by the rest of the cast) from S1 and S2 instead of having to barrel down on focusing on the already established complex 502nd relationships without any main focal point.

Basically the "newcomer" angle is a lot easier to write for. They probably wanted a younger looking character than Sadako and a less aggressive one than Nao as well.
>> No. 9277 ID: 1aed4ff6

Such is life in an ensemble cast. Take Star Trek, for instance. The Next Generation had nine regular performers but the only one we really got to know well was Picard. Through all of the series the captain of each is the only character to appear in every episode even if the show is follows someone else. Star Trek ultimately is The Captain's Story, plus these other people sometimes. Firefly, on the other hand, did a better job of balancing the writing.

And so it was with the 501st. Nine characters, and we spend some time with each but the show centers on Yoshika. The new show will also probably focus on just one in the same pattern. It's frustrating if the main character doesn't especially interest you, but it's a reliable writing structure and they're likely to keep using it. If there's one thing Japanese entertainment loves it's recycling the same tropes over and over again. The new show might break out of that pattern and surprise us, but I wouldn't bet on it.

I think it's just limited to the OP. The Sanya thread is loaded with screenshots and most of them look great.

Here's the first shot of that long dolly out. Not much better looking. A slight blur and maybe they're trying to make the air seem a little humid with the slight fog. The next shot is sharper and clearer but still isn't quite in focus. After that the slight blur returns and stays. Maybe the team that put the OP together, or just that dolly shot, rushed it or just sucked at their jobs?

You are underestimating the speculah power of a layman. It introduces the setting, the main cast, the stand and power of the main character, his imminent family and the ~mysterious~ things going on. Silhouette roll only is only an issue if you pay too much attention on it. But I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who has had not read the manga.

And even if you find these points controversial, you can't deny that the splash screen after the PV is ridiculous with That character being on it.

Ugh, Hikari Karibuchi and her older sister Takami really look and give now sort of Miyafuji and Mio vibes.

I've been under a rock and only just saw this. Excited but I seriously hope what was shown is just for the PV. Mainly regarding the fight bits. You'd think they'd put some more dynamic shots in but everyone was just locked in an animation in a static frame. I just hope it's not representative because Silver Link did pretty ok with the OVAs. Not as good as I felt AIC+ with S2 and the movie, but much above passable.

That's the problem.

Sure, it's understandable that the new anime MC would get a figure first. But in all fairness, Nipa is among the oldest and most popular characters in the franchise and many other 502nd JFW witches are equally well-established.

Which is why it's sad to see the merchandising start with the bland non-person Yoshika clone. Maybe we'll grow to like her after the anime, but right now she's a nobody. A nobody created to suit anime narrative that will in all likelihood be disappointingly similar to the previous series.

Wew Lad
The Sega prize figures have done a few witches outside the 501st now. I can understand where you're coming from, but if a proper line (see Alter) comes out of the 502nd series they're going to start with the MC just as they did with the 501st (which they did break out from a bit already with Hanna, Heidi, and Martina).

As they say you'll get what you want Soon™.

Come on now, things around here would get boring real quickly we weren't disappointed at their brilliant move to clone Yoshika! I mean what could possibly be better than a forced MC to fit a TV anime within the same type of narrative framework as the previous seasons?

But I digress. It's not about figures; it's about the whole anime marketing strategy. They want to focus on building something new around it instead of embracing Humikane's original stuff. You know, the same thing that always happens with any and all Strike Witches media.

I wonder how Humikane feels about the whole deal. His franchises (not just SW and definitely not just this anime season) are going places woth all the different authors doing their own interpretations of them. And when it comes to a big-budget deals like TV anime, it's all about money rather than soul. Sometimes the (official) doujinshi feel more canon.

By compressing her shield she can increase its power, doing so makes it possible to defeat Neuroi in hand-to-hand combat.

Karibuchi Takami
Magic Eye/Eyes
She is able to spot the position of a Neuroi's core from a distance, though there may be some error.

Waltrud Krupinski
Magic Boost
By releasing her magic power all at once she can achieve instantaneous hyper-acceleration, but because it puts a large burden on her unit it's rarely used.

Georgette Lemare
Healing Magic
First-aid-type healing magic (when she uses it her body temperature increases).

Shimohara Sadako
Compound Magic Eyesight
Greatly increases her field of view at long distances or at night.

That's a very.. interesting ability. Wonder how it shows up in combat. I can't really think of very useful ways for it over others abilities.

Thanks for the translation.

Considering she's the mechanic that's the best ability to have. She could have every Striker's schematics memorized.

Yeah, it's a very neat ability, but that's outside combat.

Remembering maps is useful, I suppose.

Can't have combat without working equipment. For battle though I bet it will also get construed into she sees a maneuver once in training she can memorize everything needed to pull it off properly. Hell I can see an episode with some training and Hikari gets disappointed when she pulls it off in one go with no effort.

That works, if they have detailed maps of the region.

Hmm, interesting. That would make Sasha technically a top tier skillful flyer in the end if she can pull of the stuff she sees.
