fripSide, the duo well-known for performing many hit AniSongs, have announced that they will perform the OP song for the upcoming mecha anime, Muv-Luv Alternative Schwarzesmarken.
Muv-Luv Alternative Schwarzesmarken is a spin-off story based on the same world as Muv-Luv Alternative, and its OP song performed by fripSide will be titled “white forces.” The duo will not only be performing the Schwarzesmarken anime’s OP song, but also the theme song for an upcoming Muv-Luv Schwarzesmarken PC game titled Schwarzesmarken: Kouketsu no Monshou. The theme song will be titled “1983-Schwarzesmarken-“, and will be released alongside “white forces” as a single CD slated for release on 10 February 2016.
Muv-Luv Schwarzesmarken’s story takes place 18 years before the events of Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse, and like Total Eclipse, is based on a spin-off novel for the popular Muv-Luv Alternative visual novels. The story will follow the 666th Division in 1983. The anime adaptation is slated to premiere on January 2016 and will be directed by Zone of Enders’ Tetsuya Watanabe over at Liden Films and Ixtl.
