The official website of the Brave Witches spinoff television anime announced on Monday that all of the anime's Blu-ray Disc and DVD volumes will be delayed by two months in Japan. The reason given for the delay is to improve the video quality over the television broadcast for all home video releases.

The anime premiered on October 5. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan, and it describes the show:
In 1930, the enemy of humanity, "Neuroi," suddenly appeared in Europe. Normal weaponry was ineffective on the Neuroi, and the only ones capable of fighting them were young girls with magical powers, known as "Witches."
"Brave Witches" takes place in between seasons 1 and 2 of "Strike Witches."
In September of 1944, thanks to the actions of the Allied Forces, with the 501st Joint Fighter Wing "Strike Witches" at their center, the Neuroi nest in the skies above the Republic of Gallia was eliminated, ensuring the security of western Europe. The Allied Forces took advantage of this victory to plan to take their resistance to central and eastern Europe in earnest. At their base in Petersburg in the Empire of Orussia, the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing "Brave Witches" prepared to receive orders to deploy... With the hope of mankind at their backs, the courageous Witches of the 502nd take to the cold skies over eastern Europe.
Kazuhiro Takamura is returning from Strike Witches to direct the Brave Witches anime. Silver Link is also returning from Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow to animate the series. Striker Unit is credited with series composition, while Humikane Shimada is credited with the original character designs (which Takamura is adapting for animation). Tsuyoshi Kikuchi and Daijō Kudo are planning the project.
