Strike Witches: Season 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Strike Witches is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of FUNimation Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Note to self: make sure to check whether you've put in a DVD or a Blu-ray when reviewing Combo Packs like this one. I put in the DVD first, thinking how odd it was that this looked like an upconversion when Strike Witches was of such recent vintage. I soon discovered my error, but you know what?: it didn't make a whole heck of a lot of difference, because this is an upconversion. Even given that fact, this is a strangely soft looking outing, one that does offer some appealing character designs and reasonably robust color, but which suffers from a kind of "blah" high definition presentation that never really pops the way the best FUNimation outings usually do. The best looking part of this enterprise is the use of CGI, which looks a good deal crisper than the bulk of the traditional cel animation. While there's nothing downright horrible about this transfer or even the source animation, Strike Witches is weirdly anemic looking for a recent vintage anime, upconversion or not, especially one presented by FUNimation, which regularly offers such stellar looking fare.


Strike Witches: Season 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

By far the best thing about Strike Witches is its extremely boisterous Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix, one that bursts out of the gate with a nice action sequence and keeps up a nicely consistent use of the surround channels for the rest of the season. While the voice work is a bit problematic (as detailed above in the main body of the review), the mix here is often fantastically effective. As the Strike Witches zoom into battle against the aliens, a glut of really good panning effects comes into play, and many if not most of the action sequences are rife with bombastic LFE. Fidelity is very strong and dynamic range is equally wide. For the record, there's an excellent Japanese Dolby TrueHD 2.0 mix on the Blu-ray as well, which is a bit more reserved, sonically speaking, but which may be preferable for its voice work even if it doesn't offer the same level of immersion.
