Honey’s Highlights

At first I thought this was going to be just a moe military anime, but with a witch as one of the main characters, this has an interesting supernatural twist!

What's more, it's about a witch who wants to protect her princess... Shuumatsu no Izetta might not be classified as yuri, but I'll take what I can get!
honey's anime character
This has some amazing seiyuu taking part as well, like Saori Hayami, Kana Hanazawa, and Nao Touyama! There's Junichi Suwabe and Yoshimasa Hosoya on the guy's side, too!

Judging from the PV/trailers, this is one for fans of more serious fantasy military anime like GATE or Alderamin on the Sky. The release date is October 2016, hands up if you'll be watching!

Synopsis

“If the princess will promise me this, I will fight for her sake... As the last witch.”

In 1939, the imperialist nation of Germania suddenly started to invade its neighbouring countries. This battle quickly spread across the entirety of Europe, and the era was swept up in the whirlpool of world war. Now, in 1940, Germania has aimed its attack at the Principality of Eylstadt, a small nation in the alps with beautiful water and greenery in abundance.

Three Episode Impression

This is the anime you need to watch this season. It is the overall package when it comes to action, story, animation, and characters. However, what will hit you first and lends itself to every other aspect of the show, is the music. From the beginning intro, which readies us not only for a lot of action, but a host of characters to learn about, to the ending’s solemn heartbreak; the music is always well-placed and holds a lot of emotional impact. From there, you’ll witness powerful writing and characterization as the creators flesh out the two heroes Ortfiné and Izetta, who are each extremely powerful female leads. Ortfiné consistently handles herself with grace and dignity and delivers powerful speeches, while Izetta shows her loyalty to Izetta despite the disdain she holds for shedding blood. Those moments when Izetta takes in the devastation she wreaks are some of the most powerful.
