Recapturing Episode 8 of Strike Witches: Road to Berlin
During a scouting mission, Eila and Sanya are attacked by a Neuroi amidst a deep fog and forced to retreat. Later at the base, Minna informs the team that the fog is surrounding the port of Kiel, which the allied forces need to capture as part of Operation Southwind, and because of that, the air force will launch a saturation attack to destroy the enemy forces, which will severely damage the port and delay their plans to liberate Berlin, designating most of the 501st to escort the bombers.
Barkhorn disapproves of the idea, as she and Minna will soon turn 20 years old and be forced to retire before realizing their ambition of liberating Berlin together. Hearing their conversation, Sanya comes with her own plan to destroy the Neuroi creating the fog so that the port can be captured unscratched. Accompanied by Eila, Yoshika, and Shizuka, Sanya locates the Neuroi but Eila, sensing that she is in danger, shoots without warning, which forces them to fall back.
With no time left, Sanya decides to leave Eila out of the operation and departs with the others for another attempt, until Eila realizes that there is a second Neuroi amidst the mist that Sanya can not detect and rushes to warn them. Just as Eila predicted, Sanya’s team is attacked by two Neuroi until Eila arrives and helps Sanya to locate and destroy the Neuroi’s core, dissipating the fog just in time for the rest of the 501st and their allies to suspend the saturation attack and capture the port without collateral damage.
