Kotobukiya's Frame Arms Girl Model Kit Line Gets TV Anime in 2017

The January 2017 issue of Kadokawa's Comp Ace magazine is revealing on Saturday that Kotobukiya's Frame Arms Girl model kit line is getting a television anime in 2017. Kotobukiya has launched a website for the anime, which features an announcement video.

Kotobukiya originally announced the anime at the Anime Festival Asia Singapore event on Friday.

The anime will focus on Gourai (pictured at right), the first model released for the line, as well as Stylet and Baselard.

Kotobukiya's Frame Arms models are a line of plastic robot model kits designed by mechanical designer Takayuki Yanase (Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse). The new Frame Arms Girl line, introduced in 2015, introduces new designs by Humikane Shimada (Strike Witches, Girls und Panzer character designs), featuring robots from the original Frame Arms line portrayed as girls. The first model in the line, Gourai, is based on Yanase's robot design with the same name.

The Frame Arms previously inspired a short anime bundled with the Frame Arms Versus Set Zelfikar vs. Hresvelgr=Ater kit in May 2015.
