Tenjin duo work on manga adaptation of original anime

Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app began publishing a manga adaptation of director Tsutomu Mizushima and scriptwriter Michiko Yokote's original television anime project Kōya no Kotobuki Hikōtai (The Magnificent KOTOBUKI) on Wednesday. Muneaki Taoka (Tenjin) is in charge of the story and composition, and Tsubasa Sugie (Tenjin) is drawing the manga.

The anime premiered on January 13, and aired for 12 episodes. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime, and HIDIVE and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.

The anime's story takes 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 do not lack for personality, they take to the air in dogfights, letting the engine noise of their Hayabusa fighters ring out in the skies.

A smartphone game titled Kōya no Kotobuki Hikōtai - Ōzora no Take Off Girls! (The Magnificent KOTOBUKI: Take Off Girls of the Sky!) launched on February 13.
