posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The official website for Aniplex's original anime Warlords of Sigrdrifa (Senyoku no Sigrdrifa) revealed a character promotional video, cast members, additional staff members, a new visual, and manga adaptations for the anime on Wednesday.

The cast includes:

Hibiku Yamamura as Claudia Braford with the Gloster Gladiator Mk. II

Nene Hieda Miyako Muguruma with the Nakajima Ki-44-II Otsu

M.A.O Azuzu Komagome with the Heinkel He100D-1

Sayaka Kikuchi as Sonoka Torai with the Macchi M.C.72R

Hirotaka Tokuda (Record of Grancrest War, Sword Art Online: Alicization episode director) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Takumi Yokota (Mitsuboshi Colors, Wave, Listen to Me!) is adapting Takuya Fujima's original character designs for animation. Graphinica is handling the CG animation. Shigeo Komori (From the New World, High School Fleet) and Hajime Hyakkoku (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, New Game!) are composing the music.

Kanari Abe will launch a slice-of-life manga series based on the anime in the September issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine on July 27. Takeshi Nogami (Girls und Panzer: Ribon no Musha, Marine Corps Yumi) and Suzuki (military history adviser for Girls und Panzer: Ribon no Musha, Sōkai no Seiki - Ōji to Otome to Kaientai) will launch a separate manga spinoff on the Comic Hu manga website.

As previously announced, novelist Tappei Nagatsuki (Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-) is supervising and writing the series scripts, and manga creator and illustrator Takuya Fujima (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid) is drafting the original character designs. Takaaki Suzuki is in charge of the world-building and research, after performing similar roles for Strike Witches and Girls und Panzer and later co-creating High School Fleet.

Nagatsuki noted that he has been a longtime anime fan whose dream was to have his creations adapted into anime. This time, however, he gets to create a story specifically for an original anime instead of an anime adaptation. He added that he likes both strong girls, and the men who love strong girls.

Suzuki said that right after the High School Fleet television anime, Aniplex gave him an offer: "Next up, the skies." He then began the world-building that became the basis for this project.

The anime was originally slated to premiere in July, but was delayed to October due to the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

In the anime's original story, the Pillars suddenly appeared above Earth, threatening all life. A god who called himself Odin came to the aid of humanity as it was driven to near complete defeat. To counter the Pillars, Odin declared a counterattack by bequeathing humanity with the battle maidens Walküres and the "herocraft" as their wings.

Several years later, the battle between humanity and Pillars rages on, with men supporting the Walküres as they soar through the treacherous skies to save the world.

Japan is no exception. Three Walküres confront the giant Pillar looming over sacred Mt. Fuji. Each Walküre is skilled, but each also has issues. And now, an ace pilot has arrived from Europe.

"Now is the time to fight back, humanity. The day of reckoning has arrived. The time of Ragnarok draws nears."
