The official website for the anime adaptation project based on Kadokawa Games’ web browser game Kantai Collection/KanColle has posted a 90-second teaser trailer for its new anime TV series. The teaser’s footage first debuted during the anime’s AnimeJapan 2022 panel last week.
Kadokawa also revealed that the anime will only have eight episodes (as opposed to the usual one cour’s worth of 11-13 episodes), as production specifically wanted to heighten quality by telling a more compact story with fewer episodes.
About the Anime
Production of the new anime was announced back in January 2019. The new TV anime is set to premiere in November 2022, and its storyline will not be continuous with the TV anime’s first season which aired in 2015, and the feature film KanColle: The Movie released in 2016.
The anime is based on a web browser game that launched in 2013 and is set in a world where humanity has lost control of the seas. The threat that has taken over the seas is the Abyssal fleet. The only ones who can counter this threat are Kan-Musu (Fleet Girls), girls who possess the spirit of naval vessels from days gone by.
