Though suffering heavy casualties, mankind unites and repels their advance, pushing them back to their homeworld of Fairy. As to not take any chances of another attack, an expeditionary force is formed to pursue and eradicate any who managed to flee. The campaign is successful, with all but a few small pockets of JAM completely destroyed, and preparations are made for the fleet to return to home. Enter Leiutenant Rei Fukai, the pilot of a reconnaissance fighter jet known as the Yukikaze. With victory close at hand, he is assigned to do one final sweep of Fairy to put an end of the threat for good. However, during the flight, he is attacked by an unknown jet that appears to one of mankind's own, and barely manages to escape. Though the JAM are all but gone, it seems a new, more deadly threat has emerged, fiercely determined to stop the fleet from returning home alive...
Being that Sky Girls is completely worthless, if the basic concept interested you then Yukikaze is the place you should turn. As I mention in my review, just about everything Sky Girls attempts to do is ripped from Yukikaze and butchered. Though it certainly has its faults, Yukikaze succeeds in every area that Sky Girls fails, so if badass aerial dog fights with amazing CGI are within your tastes, give Sky Girls a pass and check it out.

Who or what are the Neuroi and what do they want?
Both titles (Sky Girls & Strike Witches) are creations of Shimada Fumikane and began as illustrated column in the magazine Comp-Ace about young girls as World War weaponry. Shimada Fumikane worked on both titles as character designer but only in Strike Witches is he being credited as “original work” and Strike Witches is also more closer to his original intend than Sky Girls was.
