A new PV trailer has been released for the Azur Lane: Queen’s Orders OVA special, highlighting key characters that will be featured in the story. More details about the OVA will be revealed at a later date.
Game publisher Yostar made the announcement of an anime adaptation for the series during a live stream of Azur Lane’s fifth anniversary as a mobile game.
The OVA will adapt the Azur Lane: Queen’s Orders manga series by Tsuchii, which was first serialized in Comic REX magazine on October 26, 2018. It is described as a slapstick slice of life story that follows the character Queen Elizabeth and her friend Warpsite.
The Azur Lane franchise has already inspired a television anime series from Bibury Animation Studios that aired from October 3, 2019 to March 20, 2020. Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan with English subtitles and an English dub.
Another short anime spinoff series titled Azur Lane: Slow Ahead! was broadcasted from January 12, 2021 to March 30, 2021. It is based on a four-panel manga spinoff by Hori. CANDYBOX and Yostar Pictures were in charge of animation production. Crunchyroll streamed the series in select English language countries and territories.
Funimation describes the first season as:
Azur Lane, a combination of all the different Camps in the world, was once successful in repelling the underwater menace, the Siren. Now splintered, they must face a new threat in Red Axis, former allies who crave to wield this otherworldly Siren technology for their own nefarious desires! Who will be victorious in the never-ending war between these battleship girls!?
