Strike Witches: Road to Berlin Episode 8, titled “The Fog,” teases the coming of the Festival of Saturn.
Lynette managed to destroy the mysterious doll in the previous episode. Now, what another adventure they will be up to in Strike Witches: Road to Berlin Episode 8?
In the preview, Sanya is being told about the coming of the Festival of Saturn, to which Francesca agreed.
“Will we wear that red outfit, yeah?” Eila asked. In another scene, Sanya seems to be flying while holding a huge weapon.
“You look like you’re excited, Eila,” she teased. “I’ll be spending it with you, after all.”
The sequence is then cut with Sanya, floating in the air, while looking at Eila.
Episode 7 recap
In the previous episode, Lynette revealed the pipes that carried Yoshika’s magic powers were damaged. It took Yoshika a long time to recover after using all her magic because of the slight pressure. This would only mean that it would take a long while before her tank filled up again, per Otakukart News.
Without this magic power, Yoshika would not be able to fly. Gertrud blamed herself for what happened, pushing Yoshika too hard in the fight. Erika, on the other hand, believed it was her fault.
Suddenly, Yoshika declared no one was at fault. Minna then stopped and told her to rest to recover her magic power.
Lynette then went to the forest to look for a herb that would help Yoshika. However, she later regretted not asking Perrine about it before she left.
She suddenly fell into a pit and found a mysterious pot, which she brought back to the base to show to everyone. As everyone was curious, Francesca suddenly grabbed the pot from Yoshika, that it fell and broke to the ground.
A cursed doll
A clay doll was then revealed and Francesca rubbed its chest that made its eyes suddenly glowed yellow. Her chest started to get big after as if she was cursed.
When Yoshika touched it, she quickly recovered her magic power. The doll then floated in the air, surrounded by evil forces.
Video Tape News added the doll passed the curse to others to gather more witches for a fertility ritual. Everyone got possessed except for Yoshika and Lynette.
Later, the cursed witches kidnapped Yoshika to use her for the ritual, while Lynette used her anti-materiel rifle to destroy the doll.
She managed to dispel the curse and made all the witches returned to their natural bodies.
Strike Witches: Road to Berlin Episode 8 is set to be out on Wednesday, Nov. 25, at 10 p.m. Japan Standard Time on Crunchyroll.
