The recent spate of steam obscuration afflicting TV anime, which then goes on to get a erotically powered up DVD release, is a pattern Strike Witches is set to repeat, as we saw.

However, the suspicion that all this is in part a marketing tactic seems to get some support with the below image of a witch (Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen; easy to remember Finnish name there) sporting nipples, with the legend “DVD用です”, that is “For the DVD”.

So the removal of the steam, gratuitously illustrated below, seems to be on the cards as a way of getting sales of the DVD going? Underhanded, but surely effective.
