posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Muse Malaysia added the first episode of the Harukana Receive and Brave Witches anime on Thursday. Both series debut new episodes every day at 9:00 p.m. GMT +8 and 9:30 p.m. GMT +8, respectively.
Harukana Receive is based on Nyoijizai's manga, and premiered in July 2018. Toshiyuki Kubooka (Berserk: The Golden Age Arc) directed the anime at C2C, and Touko Machida (A Centaur's Life, Wake Up, Girls!) supervised and wrote the series scripts. Takeshi Oda (Oneechan ga Kita, Tenchi Muyo! Ryo Ohki 4) designed the characters and served as chief animation director. Akiko Fujita directed the sound at HALF H·P STUDIO. Rasmus Faber (The Asterisk War: The Academy City on the Water, Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne) composed the music at Kadokawa.
Seven Seas Entertainment releases the manga in North America, and it describes the story:
When high schooler Haruka moves to Okinawa, she finds herself enamored with the beach right outside her front door and resolves to form a volleyball team with her cousin, Kanata. However, because she's so short, Kanata gave up on volleyball ages ago. Can Haruka get her to take up the sport again in time for the junior tournament?
Nyoijizai launched the manga in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine in August 2015, and ended it on September 24. Houbunsha published the manga's 10th and final compiled book volume on October 12.
Brave Witches is a spinoff of the Strike Witches series, and centers on the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing "Brave Witches," unlike the earlier anime's focus on the 501st Joint Fighter Wing "Strike Witches."
The series premiered in Japan in October 2016.
Animax Asia previously aired Brave Witches, and it describes the anime:
The Neuroi, an enemy of mankind, suddenly appeared in Europe in the 1930s. Only girls equipped with special magical powers, known as Witches, could confront the Neuroi who were not destroyable with ordinary weapons.
In September 1944, the Neuroi nest was eradicated and safety was ensured in Western Europe. Meanwhile, the allied forces began their plan for an operation against the Neuroi in Central and Eastern Europe. An order to scramble is given to the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing, commonly known as the "Brave Witches" whose base is in Peterburg within the Orussian Empire.
Kazuhiro Takamura returned from Strike Witches to direct the Brave Witches anime. Silver Link also returned from Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow to animate the series. Striker Unit is credited with series composition, while Humikane Shimada is credited with the original character designs (which Takamura adapted for animation). Takaaki Suzuki returned from the Strike Witches television anime series, original video anime, and film to serve as military history adviser and to be in charge of world setting. Hiroyuki Terao returned to provide mechanical designs. Tsuyoshi Kikuchi and Daijō Kudo planned the project. Tomohiro Yoshida again served as sound director at Glovision. Seikou Nagaoka returned to compose the music, and Nippon Columbia produced the music.
