The winter 2019 anime series The Magnificent Kotobuki is getting its home video releases handled by Bandai and they’re going for the box set route. While we’re still a couple of month out from the first set release, we now have a look at the packaging for the set as well as a look at the reverse side. The twelve episode series is getting two box set releases beginning on May 24th, 2019 where each set is priced at 18,000 yen for six episodes per set. The show is getting only Blu-ray releases and the audio for it is being produced in a 2.1 format to give the subwoofer a workout.
The series is directed by Tsutomu Mizushima based on the series composition and scripts by Michiko Yokote. Shou Sugai is adapting the original designs by Hidari with Gemba producing the animation while Wao World handles the key animation.
The Japanese cast includes Sayumi Suzushiro as Kirie, Eri Yukimura as Enma, Sayaka Nakaya as Kate, Asami Seto as Leona, Hibiku Yamamura as Zara, Miyu Tomita as Chika, Akiko Yajima as Madame Lulu, Keiji Fujiwara as Saneatsu, Rumi Okubo as Natsuo, Yōji Ueda as Johnny, Nao Tōyama as Ririko, Misaki Yoshioka as Anna, Miho Okasaki as Maria, and Miyuri Shimabukuro, Aoi Koga, and Natsumi Kawaida as Ady, Betty, and Cindy.
Plot Concept: The series takes place in a barren frontier where people trade goods with each other in order to help each other survive. The Kotobuki Squadron are bodyguards for hire, led by a strict but beautiful squadron leader, an unreliable commanding officer, and a true artisan of a crew chief. Alongside pilots who don’t lack for personality, they take to the air in dogfights, letting the engine noise of their Hayabusa fighters ring out in the skies.
