Franchise's 1st anime film opens in Japan this fall

The official website for the KanColle anime film began streaming a 45-second teaser video on Saturday. The video previews animation for the film, titled Gekijō-ban KanColle (KanColle Movie Edition), and focuses on Fubuki.

The anime film is slated to open in more than 50 theaters throughout Japan this fall. Advance ticket sales began on Saturday, and people who purchase a paper ticket or Movie-Ticke Card for 1,500 yen (about US$13) will receive a postcard set while supplies last.

The official "Third KanColle Naval Review" event will be held at the Pacifico Yokohama convention center on August 7. The postcard set available with advance tickets for the film includes a priority ticket application card for the event.

The August 2015 event that announced the film screened footage that features the Kan-musume characters Fubuki, Mutsuki, Yūdachi, Akagi and Kaga, Hiryū Kaini and Sōryū Kaini, the four Kongō sisters (Kaini), Kitakami and Ōi, Chōkai Kaini, Yūbari, Mutsu and Nagato, Kako Kaini and Furutaka Kaini, Zuikaku and Shōkaku, Shimakaze, Kuma, and Ōyodo.

The final episode of the television anime series had also revealed last March that the television anime would get a sequel. The anime's official Twitter account then indicated that the movie and the sequel are separate projects that are going into production at the same time.

The TV anime series premiered in January 2015 and Crunchyroll streamed it as it aired in Japan. The series is set in a world where humanity has lost control of the seas. The threat that has taken over the seas is the "deep sea fleet." The only ones who can counter this threat are Kan-musume (literally, warship girls), girls who possess the spirit of naval vessels from days gone by.

The base for the fleet arrayed against the "deep sea fleet" is Chinjufu. There, many various Kan-musume have gathered to live together and work hard everyday in training and other matters. One day, a Kan-musume arrives at Chinjufu. She is a special class of destroyer, and her name is Fubuki.
