Film opened at #5 in Japan in November

Southeast Asian anime channel Aniplus Asia began streaming an English-subtitled trailer for the Kantai Collection: KanColle anime film on Wednesday.

The film will screen for one day in Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, and in Indonesia later this month.

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. The film began 4DX and MX4D screenings in Japan on February 11.

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.

Funimation will release the television series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with English subtitles and an English dub on June 27. Funimation is releasing the series as the second home video title in its partnership with Crunchyroll.
