“The Magnificent Kotobuki’’ is an anime set in a fictional world resembling the 1930s, where vintage aircraft play a crucial role in transportation and commerce. The anime is centered around the Kotobuki Squadron which is led by Reona, the squadron also includes Kylie, Emma, Kate, Zara, Chika. The anime explores their adventures as they undertake tasks such as airship escorts and engage in aerial battles against pirates. The anime director was the same director as the Girls und Panzer Animes.
The anime also has a compilation film that includes the content from the anime and additional content that was not aired when the anime originally aired.
A mobile game that was only available in Japan was also released called “Kōya no Kotobuki Hikōtai - Ōzora no Take Off Girls!” which features the cast from the anime and more squadrons which were not included in the anime. The game launched February 13th 2019 and the game shut down December 14th 2020.
The anime also has many official model kits for the planes featured in the anime for viewers to buy and build at home to be able to show off how much they like the anime.
For this suggestion I will be focusing on one of the characters and their plane in particular. The plane in particular would be the Isao’s J7W1
Isao is a politician and the chairman of the View Trading company, as well he is considered a war hero. He has a happy go lucky personality and enjoys joking with people with his magician skills where he is able to catch the attention of people easily. He is first seen in the anime in episode 5 while he is flying a B7A and the later episodes when he is flying his personal aircraft the J7W1. As shown below his personal aircraft a nice deep red with his personal emblem on either side of the body and wings.
