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.
A big H/T to flaze35 who gave us a heads up on the new trailer for SW Victory Arrow Vol 3 Arnhem no Hashi.
ANN has it as a May release date for this spring.
After a two year break, Strike Witches anime returns with the first of three OVAs – Operation Victory Arrow vol. 01: St. Trond no Raimei (Saint Trond’s Thunder).
First, the theatrical premiere date for Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow Vol. 3 – Arnhem no Hashi (The Bridge of Arnhem) has been announced – May 2, 2015. No information was given for BD/DVD release dates. More information here. Volume 2 – Aege Kai no Megami (Goddess in the Aegean Sea) is still scheduled to be released in Japanese theaters on January 10, 2015.
First PV for Strike Witches Operation Victory Arrow Volume 2 is out and… well, there’s not much to it, especially if you have looked at the released screen caps (see Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow Vol. 2 Aegean Umi no Megami News post). Still, nice to know that work on the second OVA is progressing. That being said, I would like more information about the third season of the anime. There’s been a dearth of news on that for quite some time.
