In the not-too-distant future, Earth was attacked by mysterious beings and before long over a third of the world's population was destroyed. Even after bringing to bear its full, united military strength, humanity was unable to repel the assailants and forced into using weapons of mass destruction. This was successful, but the war and its conclusion resulted in the deaths of a crushing percentage of all fighting-aged males, and Antarctica being melted, causing much of the Earth's land to sink underwater. Years later, three young girls - Otoha, a headstrong country girl; Karen, a technical genius; and the highly-disciplined and strong-willed Eika - are being trained to pilot Sonic Divers, weapons being developed lest humanity be caught off-guard once again.
Due to an invasion of an unknown enemy, the world is being destroyed. The military force is powerless against the enemy, lives are being taken and the planet is being torn to pieces. However, an unexpected turn occurs when scientists create a weapon known as "Striker", which is the perfect fusion of both magic and modern technology. The group of young girls who will master "Strikers" will become Strike Witches, and with their new magic brooms, they will swiftly sail through the skies in order to protect what is left of mankind...
Both are very similar in their themes; where young girls are made to use high tech flying gear to fight against formidable enemies. The story lines differ though and there's a lot of "panties" in strike witches - a bit annoying but still watchable!
Loligirls can save the world! Thats what both shows are about, even though thats about it.
While in Sky Girls, you get some constantly panty showing girls riding a mecha in order to defeat evil monsters, you get some as loud as an airplane magical pantygirls in Strike Witches.
So I bet if you liked one show, you'll fall in love with the other! And if you dislike one, you'll surely hate the other anime even more. I did.
I think that if you liked Sky Girls or Strike Witches, you'll probably like the other, because both of these anime are very similar,they both happen in a post-apocalyptic time, and the characters in both of these animes are teenage girls fighting in the military against aliens,and the only ones who can fight these aliens are those girls.
Oh come on, do I really need to put a reason here for this? Sigh... Look, both of these feature girls, in special fighting equipment, fighting to save the world from a poorly explained and defined threat. Strike Witches is a lot more on the ecchi/fanservice side, but in my opinion has the stronger overall plot and animation quality. Sky Girls is more "scientific" and less "Magic". Both are definitely worth a look, and if you like one I can almost garuntee you will like the other.
In the year 1939 an unknown enemy called the Neuroi appeared. Their purpose is unclear and origin is unknown, but they attack and destroy any signs of human civilization they come across. Because conventional weapons are useless against them, humanity developed a striker unit known as the Strike Witches to combat the Neuroi. Miyafuji Yoshika is a girl with exceptional healing power but lacks control; she has been scouted to join the Strike Witches and fight the Neuroi, but all she wants to do is take over her family clinic. After witnessing an attack by the Neuroi on her way to find out if her father is still alive, Miyafuji resolves herself to fight for and protect the people around her. Who or what are the Neuroi and what do they want?
Both of these anime involve little girls saving the world from monster invaders using some special power only they have. Very similar plot-wise, if you liked one, you'll probably like the other.
Both shows have pretty much the same plot; young girls flying around fighting monsters. As such, if you enjoyed one, you'll most likely enjoy the other.
it's cute girls, using big guns, to shoot aliens out of the sky. what more could you want. with more fanservice the story becomes less important. but don't worry the bath scenes make up for it
They have much in common and are exiting to watch! They are both fighting an unknown enemy. Strike Witcches is timed in World War 2, but Sky Girls are more in our own time line.
"Are you there?" This is the question that the aliens always demand before they attack. The quiet island of Tatsumiyajima is secretly the last line of defense against mysterious invaders. In a quiet and rustic villiage, children were raised without any knowlege that they were born to pilot the Fafnirs, giant robotic war machines of terrible powers that are the only thing that can defend all they hold dear.These children's struggles will be the only thing that can hold off an enemy that attacks both our bodies and our sense of identity...
If you'd remove the one male from IS, you'd end up with Sky girls. Sky girls focusses more on the relation between different girls while IS focusses on, well boobies and girls trying to conquer one male.
If you liked one, check out the other.
The year is 1973 when the BETA, a race of aliens discovered on the moon, first arrive on Earth and begin their systematic extermination of the human race. Mankind's only hope lies with Tactical Surface Fighters, or TSFs, piloted by both military elite and would-be trainees such as Yui Takamura, a young girl descended from a long line of Imperial Guards. Alongside other amateurs, she finds herself on the front lines of a final defense against the bloodthirsty monsters, unaware of the brutal consequence that awaits them. Three years later, Yuuya Bridges, a half-Japanese, half-American pilot, is assigned to an elite United Nations squadron tasked with developing new TSFs to beat back the alien forces. As humanity struggles to survive, Yuuya must come to terms with his biases in dealing with both his teammates' and other culture’s tactical fighters, including the veteran pilot Yui Takamura herself.
