Shogakukan's Gagaga Bunko imprint reported on Friday that the previously revealed anime of Koroku Inumura's Toaru Hikūshi e no Koiuta (A Love Song to a Certain Airship Pilot) light novel series is slated for this fall. However, the imprint's website has since removed any mention of a fall date.
The 2009-2011 five-volume light novel series is set in the same world as Inumura's To Aru Hikūshi e no Tsuioku (Recollection of a Certain Airship Pilot/The Princess and the Pilot) novel and anime film, although it is set earlier with a different cast of characters. The story of love and aerial combat follows a former prince who lost everything to a revolution, a girl who became the symbol for the revolution, and another girl on a journey of her own. The orphaned prince, now renamed Karueru, embarks on a one-way voyage to discover the ends of the heavens. Aboard the levitating island of Isura, he meets a girl named Claire.
