The recent World Witches Music Festa 2020 concert made many announcements for the World Witches Take Off! (World Witches Hasshin Shimasu) anime. Similar to Strike Witches: 501st JOINT FIGHTER WING Take Off!, this new anime will follow the lives of the Witches outside of their battles. However, we will be able to see the lives of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing from Strike Witches and the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing from Brave Witches!
There will be multiple artists for the opening and ending theme songs. For the opening, the song “Wanna Fly?” will be sung by Yoko Ishida and is written by Kentaro Sonoda. The ending song will be a bit special compared to the opening. Written by Naozumi Mabuchi, the “501 Version” ending song will be called “Colorful Everyday.” Each episode will feature one of the units of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing singing the ending song. Written by mitsu and arranged by TRYTONELABO’s Shunsuke Takizawa, the “502 Version” of the ending is titled “Awesome days!” Similar to the “501 Version,” the “502 Version” will feature one of the units from the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing each episode.
