The "Sōkyū no Fafner THE BEYOND in Pacifico Yokohama Day 1: Sōshi Minashiro Birthday Party 2021" event ended with a surprise announcement on Monday. The event announced that production on a new spinoff anime titled Sōkyū no Fafner Behind the Line has been green-lit.
Behind the Line is a self-contained story in one episode. The project was first promised to fans during "Sōshi Minashiro Birthday Party 2017" as a "peaceful spinoff."
The final three episodes of the Sōkyū no Fafner THE BEYOND anime opened in Japanese theaters on November 5, and their Blu-ray Disc and DVD will ship on March 16.
Funimation licensed and released the original 2004 anime Fafner and the 2010 film Sōkyū no Fafner: Dead Aggressor: Heaven and Earth. Crunchyroll streamed both halves of the Fafner EXODUS sequel series in various countries as they aired in 2015.
