New theatrical screenings begin on Saturday

The official website for the Kantai Collection: KanColle anime film began streaming a commercial for the film on Thursday. The commercial is for the film's 4DX and MX4D screenings, which will begin on Saturday. The video previews the film's theme song "Kikan" (Return) by Shiena Nishizawa.

With the 4DX or MX4D systems, certain theaters have motion seats that move in sync with certain action sequences onscreen. Similarly, effects such as scents, wind, and mist will operate in accordance with the action onscreen.

The film opened in Japan in November. The film sold 70,000 tickets for over 100 million yen (about US$856,000) on 60 screens in its first weekend, and ranked at #5 during its debut weekend.

Shinichiro Inoue reprised his role from the television anime series as chief production supervisor for the film, and Keizou Kusakawa returned from the television series to direct the film at diomedea. Kensuke Tanaka, who is credited with the original plan and concept, also wrote the film's script alongside Jukki Hanada.

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.
