League of Nations Air Force Magic Aviation Band Luminous Witches, Ep 1 (Sub), is live at HIDIVE
Not a bad start so far. They do kind of alter the rules a bit about the witches in this one as they actually have their familiars manifesting as separate entities, rather than like in Strike and Brave Witches were they just manifest their spirit animal when they use their magic.

I got kind of an old USO show vibe too, which was nice.

Idol-themed Strike Witches spin off is currently broadcasting in Japan and streaming on HIDIVE
League of Nations Air Force Magic Aviation Band Luminous Witches, Ep 3 (Sub), is live at HIDIVE
As of Ep 3, This episode takes place around S1 of Strike Witches, as CDR Stewart mentions going to London for a meeting, and the Villagers are talking about the Neuroi being close to the village. So it correlates to Season 1 of Strike Witches as it’s been determined that the Neuroi attacks on England stopped after Ep 12 of S1 of the Original Series.
I’m pretty sure there will be some cameos from at least the 501st sometime during this season.
League of Nations Air Force Magic Aviation Band Luminous Witches, Ep 4 (Sub), is live at HIDIVE
League of Nations Air Force Magic Aviation Band Luminous Witches, Ep 5 (Sub), is live at HIDIVE
If it ends where I suspect S`1 should end, The 501st should be making a cameo in the Season Ender, which should parallel with the defeat of the Neuroi nest in Gallia
