The February issue of Kadokawa's Newtype magazine is announcing some of the staff for the Kantai Collection -Kan Colle- anime on Friday. Keizou Kusakawa (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise, Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they?) is directing the anime of Kadokawa Games' moe-character card battle game at the studio Diomedea (Squid Girl, Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they?). Jukki Hanada (Love Live! School idol project, Steins;Gate) is in charge of the series scripts.
According to Kadokawa Games last September, it is aiming for broadcast next summer or later with the voice cast from the game.
Kadokawa Games launched the original free-to-play browser game with the service provider DMM.com last April. In the game, players compete with cards featuring female moe characters inspired by Japanese World War II warships such as aircraft carriers, battleships, and cruisers. Players build, organize, and repair their anthropomorphized fleet to progress through maps.
