The wave won’t stop for Azur Lane! A fan event shared new, exciting projects for the mobile game — including an anime series.
Tensho (The Grisaia series / Rewrite) is directing the anime at his Bibury Animation Studio, and it will feature scripts from Jin Haganeya (Guilty Crown). There is no release window for the anime.
Azur Lane is also getting a pair of manga: Tsuchii (Girls und Panzer: Little Army) is adapting the game’s main story in one series and there will be a “slapstick daily life” manga centering around Queen Elizabeth.

Finally, a new action game is being produced for the PS4.
Azur Lane first launched in China in May 2017 and has since been released in Japan and South Korea. An open beta for American and Canadian versions of the game is on-going.
Azur Lane features moe anthropomorphized versions of warships, similar to Kantai Collection. However, the gameplay is a mix of 2D-shooter and lite-strategy mechanics. It’s been eclipsing Kantai Collection in terms of global popularity due to international versions of the game.
