Japanese broadcast scheduled revealed for upcoming original TV anime directed by Tsutomu Mizushima


Heads up, flight fans! A new trailer and the Japanese TV scheduled have been revealed for Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai ("The Kotobuki Squadron in the Wilderness"), an upcoming original TV anime from the director of GIRLS und PANZER about an eccentric, all female group of mercenary fighter pilots who protect the aerial shipping lanes in a desolate world.


The trailer samples the opening theme of series, entitled "Soranone", which is performed by ZAQ.



Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai will broadcast in Japan according to the following schedule:


  • Tokyo MX: every Sunday during the 22:30 time slot beginning on January 13, 2019.
  • TV Aichi: every Sunday during the 26:05 time slot beginning on January 13, 2019.
  • MBS (Mainichi Broadcasting System): every Tuesday during the 27:00 time slot beginning on January 15, 2019.
  • BS11: every Tuesday during the 24:00 time slot beginning on January 15, 2019.


Please note that some Japanese TV schedules count early-morning programming as late-night programming of the previous day, so for example the 27:00 time slot on Tuesday evening is actually at 3:00AM JST on Wednesday morning.



Kouya no Kotobuki Hitokai is directed by Tsutomu Mizushima and features series composition by Michiko Yokote and animation production by Gemba. Set in a vast wasteland where people survive through a combination of mutual support and trade, the series follows an eccentric, all-female band of mercenary pilots who act as bodyguards and who battle against the pirates that plague the skies.
