“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 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 Sabuji’s A6M3

Sabuji is the pilot that taught Naomi and Kylie how to fly. He taught Kylie a lot of different things including how vast the world was. He was also knowledgeable on aircraft technology. Due to his eccentric personality he did not have a lot of interaction with the other resident in the town that he lived in. I will suggest you watch the anime if you would like to know more about him as I do not wish to spoil the show for anybody that is interested in watching it.

My only concern is if this is strictly the Japanese WT servers cause I seriously hope not. There are a lot of us from all over who would love to see it.
