News: Strike Witches spin-off anime Brave Witches announced for fall

The upcoming Strike Witches spin-off, starring the Brave Witches of the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing, has revealed that it will air this fall season. We also get a look at the character designs for new team addition Alexandra Pokryshkin with this update.

In the previous staff listing and promo trailer, Kazuhiro Takamura was revealed to be returning from Strike Witches to direct, with SILVER LINK also back from Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow to take charge of animation. Series composition is handled by Striker Unit, while Humikane Shimada provides original character designs for Takamura to adapt to the anime, and Tsuyoshi Kikuchi and Daijo Kudo plan the project.

Takaaki Suzuki, who has been with Strike Witches throughout the anime series, OVA and film, is also back on the team as military history adviser and the man in charge of world setting. Hiroyuki Terao returns on mechanical design, with Tomohiro Yoshida back as sound director at Glovision, and Seika Nagaoka once again composing the music which Nippon Columbia will be producing.

The official Strike Witches site confirmed in October 2013 that the third anime series had been green-lit, but Suzuki was quick to clarify that the new series would not be “the third season” of Strike Witches. Instead, it should be considered as a new stand-alone series.
