The official website to the anime adaptation for the Muv-Luv Alternative spin-off novel, Schwarzesmarken, has finally been updated with a brand new promotional video. The trailer previews the 666th division’s battle against the gigantic alien menace known as the BETA.

The video not only re-introduces us to the BETA, but also features the anime’s OP song, “White Forces” by fripSide. The website’s update also reveals a brand new key visual:


Muv-Luv Schwarzesmarken’s story takes place 18 years before the events of Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse, and like Total Eclipse, is based on a spin-off novel for the popular Muv-Luv Alternative visual novels. The story will follow the 666th Division in 1983. The anime adaptation is slated to premiere on January 2016 and will be directed by Zone of Enders’ Tetsuya Watanabe over at Liden Films and Ixtl.
