[There. Remember, 45 degrees.] Socks works the controls, taking you on a course towards the further group of destroyers, though deflected by approximately 45 degrees. As you gain speed, several other Martian subs also break the surface, putting you squarely in their sights...but also in the Japanese's. Boom! Boom! Boom! A pair of destroyers opened up on the subs, firing their five inch guns and letting loose several torpedos. The Martian subs, though more technologically advanced and tougher than human boats, were not designed for surface warfare. They crumple under fire, sinking beneath the waves before they could align themselves for an attack on your own sub. "They're gone! Boom boom pow, fuckers!" yells Rae, practically dancing in the enclosed space of the sub's interior. You notice that additional windows opened up in the rear of the sub as well. Where these Martians got these ideas for sub design, you'll never know.
>>19282404wave them, hail them by witch radio, celebrate and get noticed in any possible way...hug socks, poor squid must be inking himself in fear
>>19282404Goddamn, we had better get a promotion and a medal for this.Captured intact a Martian sub, Martian Strikers, and one of their top scientists.
>>19282404Try and get abovedecks, start waving shirt.Best be thanking our rescuers properly now, right?
>>19282458a willing turncoat top martian scientist, we didn't even have to use our womanly wiles
>>19282404Okay yeah we're safe-ish now.Maybe now is a good time to tell them about the fuckhueg submersible battlestation?>>19282458After losing a prototype sub, 4 substrikers, 1 witch, a bunch of sciency types and they did some experiments on us as well.
>>19282505I am now thinking of a romance subplot with Socks.
>>19282505I doubt that would be very effective in the first place. I'm sure Martians have a very different idea of hot.[nospoilers]Aww who am I kidding, everybody knows anything with tentacles will fuck anything that moves.[/nospoilers]Hint hint.
>>19282547>Attempt to flirt with Socks>Attempt
>>19282531No, sorry, Socks it's happily married and father to a few dozen clutches of larvae back in Cydonia
>>19282531i'm imagining it would be like romancing Zoidberg. also, we probably look hideous in the alien's eyes.
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-05-29/strike-witches-takamura-launches-vivid-red-operation-animeNew SW anime in the works. Rejoice!
>>19282404"We're not out of this yet, Lt. Caulders. Buckle down," cautions Miranda. "There could be more Martians in pursuit." "Hmph. Can't I celebrate things going our way for once?" Ignoring their banter, you turn back to Socks. [Anything else coming our way that you can see?] [Not that I can tell. Nothing beyond the Harbinger slowly turning away and diving.] [Good. Keep us going.] Now, to ensure the Japanese don't blow you out of the water... <This is CPO Kukyendall. Thanks for the assistance. Read no more enemies in the water. What would you have us do?> Again, you get Ito on the other side. <Combat operations still under way. Come about to your nearest destroyer, maintaining distance of 100m. Do not deviate. When operations are completed, we will have further instructions.> "Well, looks like we're going to have a wait," you tell the others. Their groans mirror your own thoughts. [Socks, take us to the nearest destroyer. Maintain 100m distance as best you can. If they don't like what we're doing, they'll pop us.] [Your people seem awfully commanding,] he comments. [Well, we are in an enemy sub.] He grunts an acknowledgment and manipulates the controls.
>>19282587The only relation it has to Strike Witches is the director.
>>19282587wrong, new anime by someone tangentialy reated t the anime adaptation.set on t a pacific future were a siscon, her imouto, a few filer moe archetypes and a pervy grandpa do the best hey can in a generic slice of life series whit no conflict whatsoever...it's strike witches 1992, right?
>>19282591 After an hour, the Japanese guide your sub back out to sea, retreating from the islands you could barely see on the horizon. They bring you closer, carefully tossing lines to the sub. Fully secured, you're brought aboard while the Yukikaze tows your prize. Though the crew is cautious of Socks, they make no effort to attack or separate him from your group. For now. You are all brought to the bridge where you are greeted by a young, no-nonsense-looking officer. She looks at you all from head to toe. You realize you're still dressed in rags that barely qualify as clothing. "Well," she says, "is scantily-clad the official dress of Martian prisoners?">What do you say?
>>19282664With all due respect, fuck you. We just escaped from perhaps the most dangerous thing the martians have to throw at us, while stealing some of their prototype striker knock offs, a couple imprisoned witches, one of their top scientists and one of their subs.Now get me some pants and a hearty meal.
Well excuse me for not having the foresight to bring extra clothing into an emergency combat situation.
>>19282664"... martians don't seem to have much of a concept of clothing, and as such, i would appreciate a new pair of undies"
>>19282664"nah, we just wanted to stun you with our nubile yet athletic physique"joking, instead explain how we used our clothes as bandages while our magic recharged enough to heal.also, look who's talking , admiral lace panties.
>>19282664>a young, no-nonsense-looking officer. She looks at you all from head to toe. >young>shegreetings fellow witch!! please give me your panties and let us engage in the traditional groping ritual of welcome home!
>>19282743don't forget to add ma'am, she is a superior officer after all.
"Yeah well, you spend a few days being experimented on and we'll see how you look."
>>19282769we're an American CPO, no? not technically in her chain of command.
>>19282587SWQ: The Anime
>>19282800More like a few months. But yeah intent gotten.
>>19282664sorry Ma'am, should I be naked?then remove rags.
>>19282706Seconding this. This isn't the time or the place for joking.
>>19282875this place is great for a joke, Kukyendall just went through the most stressful time of her decade and a half of a life, she either breaks the tension now or suffers another nervous collapse when she realizes Socks and the rest are scheduled for vivisection
>>19282875yeah... plus, japanese people have a terrible sense of humor.
>>19282920it's a very simple sense of humor, just one pun will have captain sourpuss over there howling like a drunk Sakabroto
>>19282935not every japanese is like sakabroto, you would do well to remember that, b-baka!
>>19282917Socks is the only Martian we got out of there, and he's far too valuable to dissect. Dissection can be done on the bodies of grunt soldiers, Socks is a leading Martian scientist that is willing to turn over technology and scientific knowledge. The first person to suggest vivisecting Socks is to be punched in the face for being a retarded traitor to the human race.
>>19282664 "Is sarcastic bitch the default attitude of Japanese Naval Witches?" you respond, not ready to deal with this shit so soon. "Or is that just you?" Your group is shocked at your outburst. Socks, amusingly, is oblivious; human interaction is a new field for him. You stare down the Japanese Officer, not willing to blink first. After a minute, you're both interrupted. "That is enough, Lt. Cmdr. Ito. Is this how you treat our honored guests?" A tall (for a Japanese) man with several years on him walks forward. You're not familiar with IJN regalia, but you peg him as an admiral. Some real top brass. "Admiral Isaki! Sir!" Ito acknowledges, snapping a salute. "I am embarrassed by the inappropriateness of my actions." She bows. "Do not bow, Lt. Cmdr. Ito. Serve with competence and humility instead." "If I may, Admiral, I thought you were on the Jintsu?" asks Ito, standing back up. "What, and refuse to greet our new friends?" Admiral Isaki turns to you and your group. "I am Rear Admiral Shunji Isaki. Welcome, friends, to my humble command." He nods his head. "We have much to discuss. Come, we shall get you some clothing and warm food. Rest until we return to shore." "Admiral Isaki, if I might ask, where will we be returning to? And when will we be debriefed?" asks Miranda. "Jayapura, in New Guinea. You will be debriefed immediately upon arrival," the Admiral responds. "I feel MacArthur will want to speak to you all personally."NEXT TIME ON SUBWITCHES - THE VOYAGE HOMEPLAN FOR MONDAY, 9PM EST, 8PM CSTBE THERE, OR SEARCH FOR PLANEFAG
>>19282954Eh?... I got called baka again~Well, it can't be helped.
>>19282964nighty-night Kotters, sleep well.
>>19282964>MacArthurOh dammit, not that insufferable arrogant asshole. Why couldn't we get Nimitz, or Spruance, or Turner, or even Halsey?
>>19282997Because MacArthur is the Supreme Allied Commander in the Pacific, and you just captured a martian sub, martian strikers, and brought back a martian scientist.With any luck, you'll even get to accept and keep your own medals!
>>19282971well, if we were talking about polish witches, i would've called you Kurwa.
>>19283005Yeah, yeah, I know. But still.
>>19283063What the fuck am I looking at?
>>19283082You really want to know?

>>19283082Socks and Kuky, the later yearsit's just a Metal Slug credits screen. but that's how I envision socks to act once all this cools down, settled down witn some earth woman, living the easy life of a famous scientist, amazing dumb earthlings with cantrips and shit he'd have mastered since he were a polyp.
