Strike Witches 2 -- character/seiyuu pics and info

I never did finish season one of this show. I never even got most of the cast straight. But the cast is so interesting that I've made a characters/seiyuus page to give me at least a chance of sticking with it.

In its "loving band of moe sisters" aspect, this show is like K-On -- but with more experienced seiyuus, some fighting, and lots of pantsu. It is extremely popular on 2channel, where it is getting over a hundred posts an hour, second only to K-On itself.

The seiyuus are interesting for various reasons. Fukuen Misato stars, having just finished starring as Yin in the excellent Darker than Black OVA. Her co-star, experienced TV-show dubber Seto Saori, steps into the role of Major Sakamoto, replacing the now-married Chiba Saeko.

And surrounding them we have great seiyuus such as Sawashiro Miyuki, Tanaka Rie, Koshimizu Ami, Saitou Chiwa, and Nazuka Kaori. And tiny-voiced Kadowaki Mai is in her second anime of the season, along with Shukufuku no Campanella, in which she is billed as the leading lady. She may be returning from the ero-game world to do more anime.

Chiba Saeko has been married since 2007 I thought. Strike Witches (TV) the first season was in 2008. I liked her Sayonara Solitaire song, produced with Kajiura Yuki, my all-time favorite musician/composer.

That broom episode was pretty messed up and inappropriate and the uncensored pantsu factor has increased severalfold from the previous season. Ignoring those factors the plot seems to have more action and be a little more fast paced than before.

@anonymous -- I carefully left out any specific conjunctions such as "because," even as I made the implication. I just don't know why she isn't in it, but I can imagine her feeling uncomfortable toward her husband about the show, or being pregnant -- and in fact, 2channel believes she now has a child.
