This isn't going to increase birth rates either, Abe! Did you not learn your lesson from the Franxx?

The post above me

Also please let this be more about the girls love for flying rather than them being "saved" by a boring main character they eventually fight over/date.

I want orgasmic dogfights as well

Are we sure this isn’t just the show-within-a-show from Shriobako?

In this case is more a help for Japan's Air Self-Defense Force recruitment effort than birth rates -
"Join the Air Force and you can find a cute anime girl as a co-pilot"

According the introduction you can notice that the "girls" in the story are "automatic fighting mechanism "Anima" which are shaped like human girls" and the name of the "Anima" girls came from fighter aircraft like "Eagle" and "Gripen"
I didn't read the LN but the pilots that will fly with these "Anima" co-pilots are probably male unless some yuri pairing appear.


Because i love military anime and anthropomorphic weapons shaped like girls and also looks like a cool story, I will take a look at it.

+1 if the story is depressing, but I doubt it.

The picture on the first image is the manga, which I agree is bad. (It's a promotional manga anyway).

The anime visual is the second (collaboration) and third picture which is pretty damn good. Especially that key visual on the third picture.

Well, it definitely looks great visually so I'll give it a chance.

The second visual is not the official character design? Because if that is, then it looks like some watered-down reject from a XEBEC fanservice anime.

Ah yes, the venerated genre classic that is Japan Air Self Defence Force Tactical Training Squadron 801 T.T.S. Airbats.

Have to agree with the comments here. As a fan of Toosaka Asagi's art (hers was one of the few circles I hit in C94), it's disappointing to say the least.

Third picture is by Toosaka herself, which is why it looks pretty damn good.

No, but the Shirobako staff are doing a different all-girl plane dogfighting kind of show.
