Returning staff includes setting advisor Takaaki Suzuki, sound director Tomohiro Yoshida

The official website for the Brave Witches spinoff anime launched on Friday, announced more staff, and unveiled a key visual. The anime will premiere in 2016.

Takaaki Suzuki is returning from the Strike Witches television anime series, original video anime, and film to serve as military history advisor and be in charge of world setting. Hiroyuki Terao is returning to provide mechanical designs. Tomohiro Yoshida is again serving as sound director at Glovision. Seiko Nagaoka is returning to compose the music, and Nippon Columbia is producing the music.

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.

The official website for the anime franchise had revealed in October 2013 that a third television anime series had been green-lit, but writer and setting advisor Suzuki clarified that the new television anime series would not be "the third season." The third episode of the Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow original video anime revealed last May that the new anime series would center on the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing "Brave Witches."

The Strike Witches franchise adapts Humikane Shimada's mecha-girl illustrations. In the series' world, the alien Neuroi are invading Earth, and governments develop "striker units" that allow girls with magical powers to fight the Neuroi.
