Original anime series premieres on January 13

The official website for director Tsutomu Mizushima and scriptwriter Michiko Yokote's original television anime project Kōya no Kotobuki Hikōtai (The Magnificent KOTOBUKI) began streaming two new commercials on Monday for the anime.

The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on January 13 at 10:30 p.m. The series will also air on TV Aichi, MBS, and BS11.

The show stars:

The anime's story will take place in a barren frontier where people trade goods with each other in order to help each other survive. The Kotobuki Squadron are bodyguards for hire, led by a strict but beautiful squadron leader, an unreliable commanding officer, and a true artisan of a crew chief. Alongside pilots who don't lack for personality, they take to the air in dogfights, letting the engine noise of their Hayabusa fighters ring out in the skies.

Mizushima (Girls und Panzer, Shirobako) serves as both the director and sound director for the anime, with Yokote (Shirobako, Prison School, Cowboy Bebop, Rurouni Kenshin) credited for series scripts. Hiroyuki Kanbe (Oreimo) is the assistant director. Hidari (Natsu-iro Kiseki, Santa Company, Phantom in the Twilight) drew the original character designs, and Shou Sugai (The Princess and the Pilot, The Sky Crawlers key animation) is adapting those designs for animation. Shigeyuki Ninomiya (Girls und Panzer, Shirobako, Kuromukuro) is credited for military supervision, while Tetsuya Nakano, Hideyuki Kikuchi (Vampire Hunter D), and Jirō Tokihama are credited for military setting. Digital Frontier is credited for production, while GEMBA is producing the animation. Wao World is handling key animation production.

ZAQ will perform the opening theme song "Sora no Ne" (Sound of the Sky), while the six main cast members will perform the ending theme song "Tsubasa o Motsu Mono-tachi" (Those Who Have Wings). ZAQ is composing and writing the lyrics for the ending song.
