Well, it’s winter season on this show and looks like the girls from the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing are having fun… except for Hikari Karibuchi and Naoe Kanno!
While Naoe can survive the harsh Orussian weather, Hikari couldn’t stand much with the cold.
And therefore got a fever that put Hikari to bed for the time being.
Well, let’s just say that her weak magic powers couldn’t make Hikari Karibuchi warm, so she relied on Georgette for bringing more heat onto her body!
Meanwhile, the situation is getting dire for the Brave Witches. Because of the events in last week’s episode, Petersburg’s supplies are getting low.
Oh yeah, and Petersburg is holding a Saturnus Festival in which it’s similar to Christmas Day, However, the problem is that they don’t have enough food supplies for a feast. Damn those Neuroi for ruining their fun!
Still, Nikka Edvardine Katajainen wanted to hold that festival for Hikari’s sake. After all, the Saturnus Festival is important for her and everyone else!
In any case, Nipa wants to make it happen as she’s making preparations together with Naoe Kanno and Aleksandra Ivanovna Pokryshkin, like making a Matryoshka doll as a present for Karibuchi.
However, seems that the Neuroi wants to ruin the Saturnus Festival just for fun. Seriously, these guys came to Petersburg at the worst time!
Of course, Nipa won’t let an enemy ruin her greatest day ever as she attacks the Neuroi head-on!
By the way, she’s the only capable witch in the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing, as the rest of them ate something bad and went laughing uncontrollably (except for Hikari Karibuchi).
On the other hand, seems that Nipa won’t have to destroy the Neuroi anymore as someone did it for her. Who could that be if you may ask?
Why it’s none other than Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen and Sanya V. Litvyak from the 501st Joint Fighter Wing. Glad to see both characters from Strike Witches returning to this spin-off!
So while they defeated the Neuroi while wearing Santa costumes, both Eila and Sanya have a surprise for the Brave Witches…
They brought in a NKL-16 transport sled all the way from Suomus, which contains the needed supplies for the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing to function properly.
In addition to ammunition and fuel, Eila and Sanya brought some food to the table.
Gotta say, both Sadako Shimohara and Georgette Lemare are delighted to have meats, fruits, and vegetables to make meals for the Saturnus Festival!
Oh yeah, and Hikari Karibuchi got a mini Christmas tree since Saturnus Festival is similar to Christmas Day.
Glad that Nikka Edvardine Katajainen is seeing a smile on Hikari’s face!
As for Waltrud Krupinski, she’s punished for a lot of things like giving them a bunch of laughing mushrooms, destroying a hanger for bringing a fir tree, and ruining a surprise for Hikari-chan!
Honestly, I think Waltrud is causing more misfortune to others than Nipa. Sucks for the baroness on this episode!
And now, let’s end this episode as Hikari Karibuchi receives her gift from her friends. Isn’t it merry for this special occasion?
With that said, I’ll see you on the next episode!
