The official website for the Renmei Kūgun Kōkū Mahō Ongakutai Luminous Witches (Allied Air Force Magical Idols Luminous Witches) anime series has announced that the anime’s production committee has delayed the anime’s premiere date to 2022 due to “various circumstances.” The anime was previously scheduled to premiere this 2021.
The story is a spin-off of the Strike Witches franchise, and centers on a unique squadron of “witches who don’t fight.” Instead, the squadron sing and perform music to protect the smiles of those who have been driven out of their hometowns by the Neuroi.
Humikane Shimada drew the character designs for the new Witches. Shimada and Projekt World Witches are credited with the original work. Shouji Saeki is directing the anime and handling the series composition. Shinya Murakami is credited for the “Witches series literature.” Kadokawa is producing the music. SHAFT is animating the series.
