“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 shut down December 14th 2020.

The anime has also 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 Kylie’s Ki-43-I Hayabusa

Kylie is the main character of the anime and is the most recent addition to the Totobuki Squadron. She had a bubbly fun attitude but when challenged she does not like to lose or give up and will commit to trying to win any fight she takes on. She really likes pancakes and is seen in the anime in many scene’s eating them. This plane features the base markings of the Totobuki Squadron that is seen on each of the Squadron planes. As Well as Kylie’s unique paint scheme and marking of a Falcon on the tail.

A few WT Live creator’s have made camouflage for the Ki-43-I Hayabusa.
