Takeshi Kojima launched adaptation of light novel series in February 2014

The October issue of Shogakukan's Shonen Sunday S magazine revealed on August 25 that Takeshi Kojima will end the manga adaptation of Koroku Inumura's The Pilot's Love Song (Toaru Hikūshi e no Koiuta) light novel series in the magazine's November issue on September 25. Kojima launched the manga in Shonen Sunday S in February 2014, and Shogakukan released the third compiled book volume on June 18.

Inumura's 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, and a girl who became the symbol for the revolution. The orphaned prince, now renamed Kalel, embarks on a one-way journey to discover the ends of the heavens. Aboard the levitating island of Isura, he meets a girl named Claire.

The novels' 13-episode television anime adaptation premiered in January 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and NIS America will release the series on home video on September 22.
