Strike Witches is a mix-media franchise created by Fumikane Shimada. It has been adapted into several manga, anime, light novels as well as video games.
It was first based around teenagers who can perform aerial combat but later evolved into different spinoffs and sequels.
Luminous Witches is a spinoff to the World Witches series. It is an anime project that is decided to air in 2021. The plot is based around a squad of “witches who don’t fight.”
The official website of the anime has released the first teaser visual of the Luminous Witches or Renmei Kuugun Koukuu Mahou Ongaku-Tai Luminous Witches.
Luminous Witches are also called Idol witches, and it features a group of witches who are called the music squadron. Unlike the theme of the main series, which includes combat, Luminous Witches prefer to move people with their music.
The cover photo for the first single of the anime called “Flying Skyhigh” has also been released.
Kadokawa released a cute and fun trailer for Luminous Witches on their Youtube channel in April.
The trailer shows the witches preparing for a photoshoot and scenes of them having fun while taking the photos.
The animation studio of Luminous Witches is Shaft. Aki Saeki is in charge of directing the anime. The character design is by Kazuya Shiotsuki. Gō Wakabayashi is the music producer.
