The Chinese mobile game about shipgirls, Azur Lane, is getting a Japanese TV anime adaptation. And now, the staff have dropped a brand new PV for the series, and it gives us a taste of May’n’s latest song, “graphite/diamond“, which serves as the anime’s OP song.
And speaking of May’n, she is coming back to Singapore for C3 AFA Singapore 2019! You can catch her from 29 November – 1 December 2019 at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre (Levels 3 & 4).
Anyway, while May’n is performing the OP song, the staff also announced that Kano will perform the anime’s ED theme song “Hikari no Michishirube“. It will premiere on 3rd October via Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and BS11.
The series will be directed by Bibury Animation Studio’s Tensho; Bibury will also be in charge of the animation. Jin Haganeya will be the series planner.
“Azur Lane” has been described as a combination of two major Japanese game series: the turn-based RPG featuring battleships as cute girls “Kantai Collection“, and “bullet hell” fan-made game “Touhou Project“. “Azur Lane” has also gained notoriety for allowing players to “marry” their favourite ship girls.
