Synopsis of Strike Witches
The general franchise story focuses on an alien invasion by beings known as the “Neuroi.” The only way to harm them and defeat them once and for all is through the Witches, girls who have magical powers and who are able to use the “Striker Units” that amplify their abilities and allow them to maneuver in the air. Characters in the franchise are commonly based on real-life aerial aces.
