I recently finished the Strike Witches anime (Season 1, 2, Operation Victory Arrow OVAs and Movie) and am planning to continue watching up to Brave Witches. I want to preserve the continuity of the series as I am watching it.
In the first episode, Miyafuji Yoshika is seen in the company of Sakamoto Mio as seen in the newspaper clipping below:
However, it seems that Miyafuji is still not that famous. I assume then that the events of Brave Witches start in the middle of Strike Witches Season 1.
Is my assumption correct? Where does Brave Witches take place in the whole timeline?
