Moe said:
The movie has an all-female cast, were men are only background characters who rarely get screentime. Consequentially, men are not a topic for the female characters.

Latina Pride disagreed with the rating and said:
considering all the girls are sex objects for the male audience, I really wonder if this should count.

Latina Pride: It should count. Despite the fact that the film has tons of fanservice, this test is not a test of whether or not it is a feminist/nonsexist film. It is a SIMPLE test of whether two females talk to each other about something besides a man. They do. Whether or not Strike Witches is a sexist movie is a more complicated discussion that this test does not address.
