Now that the
world’s longest event KanColle Summer 2015 event is over, some additional details on the 2016 KanColle movie. As for the second season of the anime, nothing new as far as I know other than a second season had been confirmed.
Military anime related news has been thin lately, but I ran across this article on SGCAFE. Instead of our beloved girls of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, we will be introduced to a new group, the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing: The Brave Witches (aka The Breaker Witches). The news is also reported here which references a great character chart (unfortunately in Japanese) of the witches and the RL pilots they were based on.
There’s a second PV for Gate – Thus the JSDF Fought There anime which is scheduled to air this summer. That was fast! (not that I’m complaining). So far, it looks pretty good. Certainly a lot of “weapon porn”, and the character designs seem pretty good from what I can tell. I also like the PV background music.
From Anime News Network a new PV for the Bridge at Arnhem OVA is being streamed.
On December 18, an anime adaptation for the light novel/manga series Gate – Thus the JSDF Fought There (Gate – Jietai Kare no Chi nite, Kaku Tatakeri) was announced. A short PV was added to the official anime site as well.
