Frame Arms Girl Anime Gets Sequel
posted on by Egan Loo
The official Twitter account for the Frame Arms Girl anime announced on Sunday that production on a sequel has been green-lit. The announcement was first made at the Pony Canyon booth at AnimeJapan 2018, and the Pony Canyon and Kotobukiya booths distributed an extra issue of the Sports Hochi newspaper with the news.
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, featured 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 original Frame Arms models inspired a short anime bundled with the Frame Arms Versus Set Zelfikar vs. Hresvelgr=Ater kit in May 2015, followed by a full Frame Arms Girl television anime beginning last April. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series and streamed it on Anime Network Online as it aired.
